111. Apollo and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... from their seats amidst a volley of arrows: "I will remember and not be unmindful of Apollo who shoots afar. As he goes through the house of Zeus, the gods tremble before him and all spring up from their seats when he draws near, as he bends his bright bow." (4 ) There is also a tradition, preserved by Aeschylus, of Apollo having been exiled from heaven, presumably because of his offences against the gods. (5 ) As our earliest Greek author, Homer's testimony is especially valuable in reconstructing Apollo's original nature and cult. And while the nature of Apollo's crimes are only hinted at by Homer and Aeschylus, it is clear ...
112. The Dawn of Astronomy: A Study of the Temple-Worship and Mythology of the Ancient Egyptians [Books]
... 18) [05/02/2005 13:24:33] Chapter III: the Astroxomical Basis of the Egyptiax Pantheon Forms of Ptah, the god of Memphis It is not too early to point out here that there is evidence that the Egyptian pantheon, as I have stated it, had not a simple origin. There are traditions that many of the gods came from a region indeterminately described as the land of Punt. Among these gods are Chnemu, Amen-Ra, Hathor, and Bes. On page 28 I have associated Bes with Typhon, following several authorities, but if they are right it is very difficult to understand his rôle. It may also be added ...
113. Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites [Journals] [SIS Review]
... - and XIXth-Dynasty Egypt was well established, and dated to the 15th to 13th centuries BC, and (B ) the lesser Hittite states to the south dated to the 11th or 10th to 8th centuries by their links with the history and archaeology of the Neo-Assyrian Empire. While these two cultures shared the hieroglyphic script and the same basic artistic tradition, they were apparently separated by a gulf of two or more centuries. The simple interpretation of Sayce and other early scholars, that the distribution of Hittite Hieroglyphs and art reflected the extent and influence of the Hittite Empire in its subject territory to the south, had to be abandoned. (Yet it is clear that the area of ...
... the last grand step in the progressive scheme, by which the orang-outang, having been already evolved out of a monad, is made slowly to attain the attributes and dignity of man. One of the races of quadrumanous animals which had reached the highest state of perfection, lost, by constraint of circumstances (concerning the exact nature of which tradition is unfortunately silent), the habit of climbing trees, and of hanging on by grasping the boughs with their feet as with hands. The individuals of this race being obliged, for a long series of generations, to use their feet exclusively for walking, and ceasing to employ their hands as feet, were transformed into bimanous animals ...
115. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ancient writers may be explained by their having seen a sky different from what was seen in his time. He defined science as learned ignorance, ' because it is impossible to formulate an exact, eternal, and absolute description of the physical universe. The position of Copernicus (1475-1543) was relatively conservative in that he combined heliocentrism with the traditional conception of circular movements (around the sun) and of a limited universe bounded by the sphere of the fixed stars. The opposition to Copernicus was determined by the realization that by giving mathematical structure to the heliocentric theory he lent support to the subversion of metaphysics that had been associated with it by Nicholas of Cusa. Questioning of the ...
116. On testing The Polar configuration [Journals] [Aeon]
... ) The Hindu Brahma, called "the true sun," does not rise and set, but "remains alone in the center." (26) The acknowledged sun god Surya "stands firmly on this safe resting place" and is celebrated as "the immovable center of his system." (27) In an old mythical tradition kept alive by Greek and Roman symbolists, the sun god occupies the central, axial position while the other planets or stars revolve around him. (28) Quetzalcoatl, the former sun god of the Aztecs, occupies the "fifth direction," identified as the stationary cosmic center. (29) The old god Xiuhteuctli, known ...
117. Paradise And Disaster In T. S. Eliot'S "four Quartets" [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... threat of renewed warfare. Until the early 19th century, it was common for European philosophical disquisitions to be presented in verse form. The practice extended from the time of the pre-Socratic sage Xenophanes through that of Charles Darwin's grandfather, the naturalist Erasmus Darwin. By reviving this archaistic association, Eliot placed himself unmistakably in a long-lived and venerable Western tradition. One of the most appealing aspects of this tradition is its holism-the fact that it eschews the separation of art from science that has bedeviled our civilization for the past two centuries. Paradoxically, however, the "Four Quartets" is anything but holistic in style. In place of the steady musical flow of earlier English poets from Marlowe ...
... get out of it a weapon against Christ: "The branches of the tree spread over the whole paradise, and it also covered the Sun. Its summit touched the sky, and from its roots sprang fountains of milk and honey." [n5 Krohn, p. 197.] This latter idea in its turn fits the medieval tradition according to which the rivers of Paradise gushed forth from under the Cross. There will be other bewildering "trees" in the chapter on Gilgamesh, but there also no attempt will be made to exhaust the huge and ambiguous evidence. But with the caveats distilled from the Sons of Thunder, and similar instances, it is possible to ...
119. The Synchronistic Chronical: A Critique [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Israel) Donovan Courville outlined his views on the chronology of early Mesopotamia. A principal requirement of his proposed revision is a near-uncritical acceptance of the historical accuracy of the document known as the "Synchronistic Chronicle."[l Dr. Courville states: [2 ] [T ] he obvious fact that must be recognised is that either the traditional chronology of this era is in gross error, or else the Synchronistic Chronicle document, which has served to provide the very backbone of ancient chronology, requires gross modification. Certainly a construction that does not demand any such rejection of inscriptive evidence should be recognised as a preferred structure. Yet Dr. Courville does not ask if both could ...
120. The Hyksos (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... , Write this for a memorial in a book .. . for I will utterly put out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven. And Moses built an altar, and called the name of it Jehovah-nissi: For he said, Because the Lord hath sworn that the Lord will have war with Amalek from generation to generation. The rabbinic tradition says that in this encounter Joshua faced four hundred thousand Amalekite warriors.9 The victory at Rephidim was costly: in that battle the Israelites prevailed only after they had been hard pressed and were close to def eat. This was but one of the battles with the Amalekites. Soon the Israelites, escaping from Egypt, came upon them ...
