Quote : Rob, The problems that scientists have with these studies is that the size of the effect is very small. Validating a finding with a meta-analysis is very weak support--and positive correlational effects are hard to interpret. One should be looking for large significant differences between groups.

What an extraordinary work. Thank you molder for bringing it to our attention. It may still take time, but this paper should signal the end of the Ruggles monopoly. It is made perfectly clear that Ruggles was mistaken, the topography of the entire landscape was being adopted for astronomy, (though I saw no mention of Thom). At last there is the recognition that these monuments are about topograph

Hi Dave, It is interesting that your measurement from Silbury Hill summit to the Marlborough Mound summit differs from that of Robin Heath's by 8 megalithic yards and yet you both find exactly the same circumference for a circle using these differing distances as a diameter. I think the Neolithic builders would be aware of these measures and a lot more besides. I don't think all that effort was

Hi Dave, Robin Heath has recently used the measure from Silbury Hill to the Marlborough Mound to produce an "Avebury Temple". Your measurements in feet differ a little, but both are apparently relevant. There is much about measurement that I fail to grasp, but megalithic symbols on lines are easier. In my opinion Robin Heath has an extraordinary grip on this subject. Thanks for the l

Thanks for the links and the reading list Dave. I've been mainly concerned with the alignment of monuments with topographical extreme points in the landscape and how these natural points prove to be ordered into isosceles and right triangles. I generally measure these in nautical miles. As you can see the UK monuments repeatedly identify high points and western extreme points by alignment. Inter

Hi Arthur, Thank you for directing us to the weblinks which give a very clear and intriguing insight into your new approach to ancient monuments. The monument builders may have had an intimate knowledge of the surface of the earth and, as you say: “It is amazing that the territory outlined by the Yonaguni Geoglyph matches, almost exactly, with the territory Japan was attempting to occupy in

Hi Carol, Yes that makes sense. Sorry I don't have animations, but fixing Orion's belt on your meridian and observing it over 26,000 years you are right it will rise and fall in the sky and alter its angle to the meridian, tilting too and fro as you say. At the top and bottom of their limits on the meridian the stars will climb and fall relatively slowly, at midpoint they will climb or fall relat

Hi Carol, I’m not sure if I can write an adequate explanation of the movement of stars measured over time at rising on the horizon, but here goes. The effect of precession on any given star is not unlike the effect of the seasons on the sun. The sun’s ‘movement’ measured daily at rising over the year is seen to be at its greatest at the equinoxes when it moves relatively rapidly heading north o

Hi Harry, I’ve been reading ‘Deluge’ with interest and would like to make a couple of observations where I think the reader may be misdirected. You say on page 223: “The vernal equinox then resides in each constellation for about 2160 years.” Comment: The vernal equinox resides in each constellation for periods varying by thousands of years. The equinox resides in each Sign of the Zodiac for

Hi Harry In ‘Measurements of the Gods’ regarding Tau Hercules, Canopus, Vega and Thuban you say: “Investigations….have revealed that a Pole Star is viable in ancient tradition for three degrees (measured horizontally) either side of pole position or a total of 1000 years.” Thanks for the reply to my earlier question, but I cannot find the answer I was asking for amongst the references you give

Hi Harry, I am trying to get to grips with the astronomy regarding Pole Stars in relation to your flood theory but I am not sure how you are defining a Pole Star.

Hi Equestrian, The video of Oliver’s Castle is used in this 50 minute documentary (without comment), but it also includes some remarkable footage of a similar ball of light taken by Steve Alexander. I have not seen these lights myself, but meet many sober people who have and I have little doubt that they exist. The documentary deals with some of the scientific study, but it is partial in that

Hi Omar, Thank you for your author of the month input. It is good timing for this discussion because the thirty year old crop circle phenomenon has markedly altered this year, and even in the last few days. Infra red and natural light videos are shortly being released showing strange lights and metallic shapes, by day and night, in the area of crop circle focus around Avebury. See, These ‘un

Thanks David for mentioning Burke, I hadn't seen his study, guess I'm behind time on this and am now doing the homework. I'm not aware of major fault lines in the area, but there is of course plenty of limestone and plenty of water, hence plenty of charge. It could explain a lot. Thanks Paxton

At 10.15pm on 23rd June 2009 a number of beautiful bright amber lights glowed in the sky over Milk Hill near Avebury, on the horizon 12 miles from here. They were at first fireworks; then flares; then Chinese lanterns; a fleet of helicopters; aircraft stacking caught in twilight; hot air balloons; but they were none of these. Running with a camera two hundreds yards for a better view, they were

Yes right R & M people need to do the homework. I read the comments on this subject with increasing incredulity. It is simply impossible to hold the view that all these crop forms are ‘hoaxes’ unless you are clear that the ‘hoaxers’ are flying above these crops (wheat, barley, linseed, cane, flax etc) without any lights in pitch black conditions creating microwave radiation which distorts

Dear Robert, You say in an earlier post that the Zodiac constellations were unknown in ancient Egypt, but does this mean that the borders defining these constellations were also unknown? These borders are bound up with precession in an interesting way which may have something to do with the gaze of the Sphinx. As a consequence of precession only a limited number of bright stars rise due east o

(See, 'The Limits of Edgar Cayces Power') This is all well documented at the ARE Virginia Beach.

Hi Bruce It does not look like a hoax to me, if it is, I think it is a first. Hence I asked “hoax?” with a question mark. Of course somebody could have got out there with an industrial roller and a GPS computer programmed route and wasted a lot of fuel, but I personally think it is not likely; but perhaps just a little bit more likely than stampeding donkeys creating it.
