221. Saturn's Cosmos [Books]
... , from which it eventually moved to its present position. (19) O'Neill properly relates the Japanese isle to the floating island of Delos raised from the sea by Poseidon. Another name for this island was Ortygia, which O'Neill connects with the Latin verto, Sanskrit vart, "to turn." (20) Answering to the same tradition are the Floating Islands of the Argonautica, called the Strophades, or "Islands of Turning." In the voyages of the Celtic divine hero Maelduin the adventurer encounters a fabulous isle in the midst of the sea: "Around the island was a fiery rampart, and it was ever wont to turn around and about it." ...

222. Noah's Vessel: 24,000 Deadweight Tons [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... artistic depiction of the Ark over the centuries has implied the hold was watertight with the cargo stowed below water line. This line of supposition ignores the need for bilge pumps and piping. Further, it is impossible to build a seaworthy, large, slender, thin shelled vessel out of wood. Such configuration requires steel plate and scantlings. Traditional artists' paintings ignore the need for a protected work area on the main deck. Such an area is needed for line handling during docking and maneuvering. The Ark had to be handled afloat at the terminus of its trip. Were it allowed to ground before unloading, it might have followed the draining water rushing back to the Caspian ...

... his father." (37) And if, in some texts, this reddish sphere is "spit out" by Atum, (38) in others Shu is exhaled or breathed out, while in still others, he is identified with a flow of reddish water or blood from the god's heart or eye. (39) The traditions are as old as the Egyptian language and are embedded in the hieroglyphic meanings. Thus, as Tche or Tchef, the unborn Shu is at once "the pupil of the eye" and the "child" (tchef, tchefen)- the very terminology we would expect for "the child in the eye." The same ...

224. The Gold of Exodus by Howard Blum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... don't think the specific researches of the SIS include 20th century realpolitik involving the USA, UK, China, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and Israel, though some of this is quite startling. What is of interest to SIS members is the Exodus: its date, whether it was a real event and, if so, how many of the traditions associated with it pertain to it and can be verified by archaeology or otherwise. Virtually nothing in this tale affects the dating of the Exodus but many points could be said to verify some of the traditions. The geography requires some mental adjustment but the arguments are plausible. It seems that the idea of locating the mountain where Moses received ...

225. Catastrophism and the Old Testament: The Mars-Earth Conflicts [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Patten has already taken a first-order stab at identifying biblical happenings with historic, astronomic, and geologic data in his first two books, The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch and The Long Day of Joshua. In Mars-Earth Conflicts he pulls out all stops. Immediately in the first chapter of his book Patten comes out "swinging" at the traditional scientific community, whose point of view he labels "Uniformitarian," and at the traditional creationists whose viewpoint he labels "Fiat Creationism." He lays a two-track foundation for his following arguments: (1 ) that Uniformitarian scientists do not perceive, and therefore reject "cyclic catastrophism"; and (2 ) that Fiat Creationists do ...

... of four expired world ages, and concludes: "the fifth age is that of the present'.(1 ) However, following a quotation from Warren in Buddhism in Translations, he comments: "The sixth sun or sun age ended."(2 ) No attempt is made to reconcile these two contradictory statements from the one religious tradition. 2. The Provenance of the Cimmerians The Cimmerians invaded Anatolia in the seventh century BC. Some theorists assert that they came from the Caucasus, others prefer Thrace. Velikovsky, uncharacteristically, does not mention this dispute but states categorically, "the Cimmerians wandered from Europe across the Bosphorus into Asia Minor, the Scythians crossed the Caucasus ...

227. Fifty Two Years Earlier, Part 1 Venus Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Fifty Two Years Earlier THE PRE-COLUMBIAN written traditions of Central America tell us that fifty-two years before the catastrophe that closely resembles that of the time of Joshua, another catastrophe of world dimensions had occurred.(1 ) It is therefore only natural to go back to the old Israelite traditions, as narrated in the Scriptures, to determine whether they contain evidence of a corresponding catastrophe. The time of the Wandering in the Desert is given by the Scriptures as forty years. Then, for a number of years before the day of the disturbed movement of the earth, the protracted conquest of ...

... that the Libyan' Dynasty (which was not Libyan at all, as we shall see) could only have come immediately after the time of Akhnaton. Not least is the artistic evidence, which shows the first of the Libyan' pharaohs portrayed in an unmistakeably Amarna style. The Ramesside' era, on the contrary, had readopted the traditional canons completely. The Libyan Dynasty was actually Assyrian - a fact illustrated by such names as Osorkon (Ashur-kan), Nemeret (Nimrud), Takelot (Tukulti/Tiglath), and Sosenk (Susa) - and accepted by many authorities, including Sir Flinders Petrie. In Velikovsky's chronology, this first Assyrian period of Egyptian history would ...

... the Palatine Chapel at Aachen and (b ) San Vitale in Ravenna (information from) [4 ]) . According to Niemtiz, the Palatine Chapel has no known predecessors but the orthodox view is that it was based on the design of the earlier San Vitale. On the other hand, whilst there may be overwhelming acceptance of the traditional date for the Aachen chapel in the English-speaking world, Gunnar Heinsohn, a social historian from the University of Bremen, assures me that there is an immense' debate about it on the continent of Europe [7 ]. However the English-language version of the Aachen chapel website still begins with the bald statement, The manifestation of a New ...

... have helped organise the universe itself: Huang-ti established everywhere the order for the sun, the moon and the stars'. The Yellow Emperor, while thought to have been an earthly king was also believed to be the planet Saturn [17]. His name may have come from the planet, which has a conspicuously yellow hue. Chinese tradition brings us to one of the most peculiar beliefs about Saturn. In ancient China the planet was held to be the genie of the pivot', i.e . the spirit or god in charge of the very axis of the universe itself. The same title was given by the Chinese to the Pole Star, to which the ...
