But they are foiled at explaining their cause, and none of the literally dozens of scientific theories hereto proposed to explain the cause of Ice Ages have been consensualy accepted by the scientific community. Among
the extinct species we had several magnificent animals: the mammoth, the
mastodon, the saber-toothed tiger, the cave bear, the giant sloths, dozens of species of camelids, cervids, cavalids and, very probably, the
Neandertal and the Cro-Magnon men, who became extinct at about this date
for some unexplained reason that can only have been linked to this one.
No, the ancient myths in no way overstate
the universal extent and violence of the Flood cataclysm. The worldwide mass extinctions
of the end of the Quaternary (the Pleistocene Ice Age) attest, most unequivocally,
that the brutalitity of the cataclysm was truly Velikovskian in extent, if
not in nature.
And the instances of both Mars and Venus are Celestial witnesses of what may indeed happen to the Earth if we persist in abusing her the way we presently do. Are these two planets the Two Witnesses mentioned in the
Book of Revelation (11:8), "their corpses exposed in the streets of the Great City (the skies?) for all to see and marvel"? I would not know, but I fear they could well be so. Aren t these witnesses of permanent death on a planetary scale indeed perhaps the scariest thing in the entire sky?
The Collapse of the Holy Mountain
Mount Atlas is the same Holy Mountain of
Paradise represented by the Great Pyramid. Osiris dead, reposing inside
the Holy Mountain, represents the dead Atlantis or, rather, the dead of
Atlantis, buried and entombed by the gigantic explosion of the Holy Mount
Atlas. Mount Atlas is the same as the Mount Meru of the Hindus, the pyramid-shaped
mountain that there served as the sky s support.
Indeed, the Egyptian word for pyramid,
M R was most probably read MeRu as in the Hindu name of the mountain simulated
by the monument. The ancient Egyptians did not spell out the vowels in
their hieroglyphs, so the above reading probably corresponds to the actual
one of Mt. Meru, the exploded Mountain of Paradise.
In Hindu traditions, Mt. Meru served as
the Stambha, the Pillar of Heaven. Mt. Meru (or Kailasa = "Skull" = Calvary")
also served as the support of the Cosmic Tree where the Cosmic Man (Purusha)
was crucified, like Christ on the Cross. Mt. Meru is also the Holy Mountain
of Paradise, endlessly portrayed in India during its explosion, in beautiful
mandalas such as the Shri Yantra. By the way, the Golden Lotus often shown
with them portrays the "atomic mushroom" of the cosmic explosion, as we
argue in detail in our work entitled "The Secret of the Golden Flower".
In consequence of the giant explosion,
Mt. Meru (or Atlas), voided of its magma, collapsed like a sort of punctured
balloon. Its enormous peak sunk underseas, turning into a giant caldera.
Our researches into the ancient world legends have shown that this volcano
is indeed the Krakatoa, the same one that still castigates the region whenever
it again erupts explosively, as it did in 1883 and other occasions.
The Meaning of the Primordial Castration
The Krakatoa is now a submarine volcano
located inside the gigantic caldera that now forms the Sunda Strait separating
Sumatra from Java. In Hindu myths, its explosion and subsequent fate are
allegorized as the Primordial Castration which turned the Cosmic Phallus
(Linga) into the Cosmic
Yoni (or Vulva). And Earth s
is the same as the
Khasma Mega of Hesiod, mentioned further above.
We see how the apparently absurd traditions
of the ancients indeed make far more sense than those of the crude attempts
at explanation by the modern experts of all sorts.
