Quote Dogon culture prioritizes the preservation of original forms. In that context, they observe the same set of calendars as the ancient Egyptians did circa 3000 BC, without the intercalary days, which along with the evidence of other cultural indications, implies that any intimate Dogon/Egyptian contact occurred prior to the adoption of those. Dogon are an ethnic group living in the centra

Quote Or are you saying that, as a planet, its observed path from Earth is erratic as compared to the stars (even in a stable orbit)? Exactly Brett. The "Capricious and Instable Inanna"...... Sumer- Akkadian civility and after. NBD Ivano

Aine wrote Quote Do you think that might have to do with a more recent belief in an afterlife? Even today, Christian churches are oriented east/west with the rising and setting sun. That is seriously possible because the orientation to Solstices and also to the Equinoxes, were associated with the dead and re-bird of the Nature, specially when first farmers started permanently settled in one

Thank you Jonny and thank you also for the detailed explanation about Thera Event. Another piece of the intricated puzzle i have. I'm interested to the new studies you mentioned because, IMHO, Thera was not the solely cause of Minoan Decline, according to what it came out during my researches. NBD Ivano

Aine wrote Quote Ivano, you've studied the dolmens. What do they have to say on the subject of solstice markers and the length of the year? About Dolmens' orientation the question is complexed because it embrace a quite big time periods and over all of all a notable amplitude of civilization. Do not forget that the majority of Dolmes are "Tombs" (Burial sites) To make it shor

Hi Jonny, pls do not forget me also because, as you are well aware Thera is one of the pivot point about Mediterranean civilities. BTW I read some Archaeologic articles a couple of years ago that revisitimg Thera proposed a date around 1650 BC...... IMHO a salomonic "position". Thank you very much in advance and compliments about the impeccability of your posts. NBD Iva

Quote But if we're honest, there's no credible influence we can point to, beyond an actual change in the length of the year, to catalyze global changes in calendar, all at the same moment. In Egypt, we actually have a myth explaining the change - the moon lost a portion of its days to the sun. The question of calendars are very clear Laird, as I pointed out many times. It does not matter wh

Hi Ian, you wrote: Quote ........ skip.... I may read them, but have followed this Velikovsky nonsense for decades. I doubt that it is suddenly going to become scientifically viable after a re-read! Inside the links which I posted, there is another well standing confirmation that Velikovsky was completely wrong also by Historical and Archaeological interpretation he gave about Venus.

Hi Ian, your posts are very interesting and over all with argunments and statements which are based on the well standing feet on ground: i.e. the reality. This questin of Velikovsky of whom Laird based his firm point of view, has been discussed few times on GHMB, in Mysteries Section. Here is just a long one, as example on which the Velikovsky theoriy has been discussed also under hist

Quote Why is this, do you think?
