  1. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito – If everyone questioned the core beliefs of all those that contributed to the web and used it to grade their level of knowledge there would be no discussion, no conversation, no exchange...
  2. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito - Back home again, slightly early but suitably refreshed, time to check out the pretty-pictured cut-and-paste argument (and many thanks for your concerned wishes). It appears we are both...
  3. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito – Yes, Plato’s tale is inconsistent, and in my opinion obviously and purposefully, and the term “metaphorical” is probably not accurate, but it’s close enough. I consider that the...
  4. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito – I am not ignoring the inconsistencies in Plato’s work, on the contrary, I consider them to be deliberate, which is why I choose to be selective and remain wary of information that may...
  5. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito - I drew your attention to the anachronisms, and I’m left wondering whether you had noticed them before – and yes, “cleverly overlays arcane knowledge” is exactly the way I approach...
  6. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito - You said “Thousands of people have searched the globe for any trace of Atlantis and found nothing.” I complete agree, but who has considered that it may not have disappeared beneath the...
  7. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito – If solid evidence and biblical dates were available this question would have been answered many years ago – but in my opinion cataclysmic events are rare enough to consider that two...
  8. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Cognito – As I have said before, assumptions are really all we have, you yourself have assumed what my beliefs are ... and I have no problem with this, for that’s what we do, that’s what...
  9. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    Back to the thread ... I could always produce artwork in a variety of mediums – however, there was a time when I needed a virtual kicking to rekindle my affection for the activity. Consequently I...
  10. Re: Where is the real Atlantis? Or is it just a metaphor?

    The picture may be of more interest to those living in Herefordshire, Gloucestershire and Worcestershire, depicted on the shield, generated by the phrase "And the great city was divided into three...
  11. Where is the real Atlantis?

    Agree with your sentiments. I've always found it easier to paint my thoughts rather than commit them to type (I think 22 years on a keyboard has left me with a slight aversion to qwerty). It is...
  12. Where is the real Atlantis?

    An excellent piece Ishtar and it is not dismissed out of hand. Disagreement is always something I try to avoid, as I have said before to Cropredy, we all have our own path to tread - and we listen...

    Re: Did life on Earth come from another planet?

    Could it be our inability to conceive infinity? Our yearning to put a start and end to all aspects of time and the universe and even life itself poses questions that can never be proven or disproven,...
  14. Where is the real Atlantis?

    Cognito – it seems we are going to agree to disagree due to the number of imponderables involved in pre-YD and post-YD. We can scan what is there now thousands of years after the event and try to...
  15. Where is the real Atlantis?

    Cognito, allow me to recap, the link you offered for answering the question concerning the scouring of the English Channel suggests that the chalk downs were breached by a giant “north sea” lake...
  16. Where is the real Atlantis?

    Cognito, you are talking about a coastline that was/is subject to a level of erosion and sedimentary deposits virtually unmatched. I live twenty five miles from this coastline, in a copse nearby it...
  17. Where is the real Atlantis?

    Synchronicity indeed Ishtar - and your comments concerning modern journalism are well stated. On the subject of the great flood I would like to describe a scenario for yourself and others.
    It is...

    Sticky: Re: The Rock Art thread

    Good morning Ishtar – yes, I had previously noted the similarity of form between the Lascaux bulls and Malvern bulls – but generally dismissed the avenue of investigation as a tangent too far –...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Hi again, such fascinating poetry (no wonder I couldn't find it) - so many of the phrases are mirroring the descriptions found in Gilgamesh and so many graphic hints that it is based upon the same...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Hi Ishtar, just had to revisit my version of the epic of Gilgamesh and couldn't find that particular incident lthough with all the various versions that's not a great surprise.

    My version was as...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Just to clarify the earlier section, it was only the stars that fell on or inside the ecliptic circle that were important to the culture - those outside were not subject to deification. This system...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Hi again, time to take another look at Mithras and the reasoning behind the special date December 25th. As I said before, the Malvern Zodiac may have been formed when Vega was regarded as the pole...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Only got a couple of minutes, but have had many positive ideas regarding Mithras (not spring equinox, Dec 25th) - will have to get back to the computer later on in the day. It will answer the serpent...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Cropedy - such a complicated life you lead where white is the new black. Perceptions of elements are of course individual to all ~ but should I be told how to think by text books or alternatively...

    Re: The Bull of Heaven

    Because the Epic of Gilgamesh is the oldest it is relatively easy to comprehend the direction of the storytellers thoughts - it becomes slightly more difficult when the Greeks continued the...
