81. Donnelly (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... . 8 | Ch. 9 | Ch. 10 | Ch. 11 | Ch. 12 | Ch. 13 | Ch. 14 | Ch. 15 | Ch. 16 | Ch. 17 | Ch. 18 | Conclusion | Notes | Bibliography | Index | Chapter 2 Donnelly The myth of Atlantis is the most magnificent in the traditional lore of all peoples and all times. Plato, in transmitting it to us in the two short passages which make up the preceding chapter, has presented us with a Danaian gift, one that is as beautiful as it is dangerous. It is beautiful, because the myth allows us a glimpse into a distant and different world; ...
82. The Sign and the Seal by Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the tablets of stone inscribed by God for Moses. The story begins and ends in Ethiopia, and is very much bound up with recent history. The excitement is in Graham Hancock's descriptions of his encounters with those involved in the civil war, with local and other historians, and particularly his accounts of the present day acting out of ancient traditions. Hancock was formerly East African correspondent for The Economist and in earlier books wrote about the peoples of the area, their poverty etc. He is candid about his having been persona non grata with the Mengistu government of Ethiopia and also his change of heart vis-a-vis the Tigre People's Liberation Front (TPLF) with whom he had to make ...
83. The Saturn Thesis (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... larger sphere is the ancient sun-god, Saturn; the smaller one is Venus, the eye-heart-soul of the sun god. Conven-tionally, these particular wide-ranging pic-tographs are identified as a family of sun signs, which should not surprise us. It needs to be emphasized, however, that there is a provable relationship between these pictographs and the dominant mythical traditions, something virtually never considered in the conventional treatments of the subject. Yet, once observed, the connections are impossible to deny. For instance, why did ancient artists repeatedly place a star in the center of the sun? It is the seeming incongruity of the idea that makes this a crucial category of evidence- and in the ...
84. The Night of the Gods Vol II [Books]
... and One. The Welsh Gwydion's consort was the ocean-nymph Brightwheel, Arianrhod' Woden (as Gylfe) had a leman called Gefjon also an ocean-nymph, and she had a "ditip rodhul," a deep or lofty wheel.a Prof Rhys connects these wheels with the Gygean Ring of Lunet (Elunet, Lynette). According to the traditions in the Isle of Man and in the Eastern Counties of Leinster, the First-man of the Island "rolled on three legs like a wheel through theMiSt."4 On the I Ith of June, at Riom in Auvergne, a wheel of flowers (formerly of wax), several feet wide, is still (I883) carried ...
85. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... Eden to water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and became into four heads." (1 ) So reads the Book of Genesis. The four rivers of Adam's paradise, according to many Hebrew and early Christian accounts, flowed in opposite directions, spreading to the four corners of the world. (2 ) The tradition is apparently universal. The Navaho Indian narration of the "Age of Beginnings" speaks of an ancestral land from which the inhabitants were driven by a great catastrophe. Among the occupants of this remote home, some say, were "First Man" and "First Woman." Most interesting is the means by which the land was ...
86. Aftermath of the Trojan War [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... upon the decipherment of a bilingual text found at Karatepe. The text written in Hittite hieroglyphs and Phoenician letters mentions a king Azitawadda and the house of Mopsus or Moxus (Hittite and Phoenician vary). Azitawadda is called the founder of Azitawaddija. We can see in him Aspendus, the son of Mopsus, after whom, in the Greek tradition, the town of Aspendus got its name. The first sentence of the inscription runs: "I am Azitawadda, . . . who(m ) made strong wrk, the king of the Dnnjm." It cannot be established with certainty if Awarikus is the subject or the object of "made strong," but he has ...
87. Mons Veneris [Journals] [Aeon]
... Nov 1996) Home | Issue Contents Mons Veneris Ev Cochrane During the course of the past several decades, a wealth of evidence has come to light supporting Velikovsky's thesis that the planets have only recently settled into their current orbits. To date, the testimony of the ancients themselves has provided the most telling evidence. Ancient rock art, archaeoastronomical traditions surrounding the respective planets, and mythical traditions associated with the various planetary deities, each offer dramatic proof of this thesis. Critics, however, continue to object that claims as extraordinary as those of Velikovsky and the Saturnists require extraordinary evidence to be believed. With this catch phrase they dismiss at once all testimony from ancient mythology as being ...
... The Earth's Annular System. throughout all geologic time, and lent its titan energies in building the wondrous piles of aqueous beds the debris of continents and ruin of rings. If the last remnants of the system came down upon the earth in modern times, man would certainly have conveyed the intelligence down to the remotest age, by history and tradition, and the account, if true, would harmonize with law. Then let us suppose that to-day a fund of annular matter were revolving about the earth. In order to remain in the firmament it would have to revolve more rapidly than the earth rotates upon its axis, and if it were in the outskirts of our atmosphere the ...
89. The Albrecht/Glueck-Aharoni/Rothenberg Confrontation [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... view that could be expected to he palatable to archaeologists generally,27 despite the assumed legendary origin of these writings. Aharoni appealed for support for his views to the "unequivocal language of archaeology," and to the claim that his views did leave at least a "kernel of truth" in Scripture, which was deemed untrue of the traditional views.28 While these deductions by Aharoni seem unrelated to the question of dating the elusive pottery, it is actually not rationally possible to separate the two problems. This follows from the coincident placement of the entrance of the Israelites in the same period as that of the mining operations and use of this pottery and the necessary control of ...
90. Alexander and the Amazons: Ancient Belief and Modern Analysis [Journals] [Aeon]
... the world half a century before Alexander, make any mention of meeting Amazons. Arrian believes that if this nation had continued to exist, Xenophon would surely have met them. Why, then, does Arrian mention the incident at all? From where does he get his information? Bosworth clearly believes that this is part of a "second tradition" of tales describing Alexander's journey through Asia Minor. (14) This secondary tradition consists of those passages in which Arrian used sources other than Ptolemy and Aristobulus, who are his main, and most reliable, authorities. I tend to agree with Bosworth's view that the purpose behind the inclusion of this story is simply to allow Arrian ...
