Cross-Cultural Divinations

April 22, 2009

Over at Reality Sandwich they take a quick look at a new book, Toltec I Ching, book that analyzes the I Ching along side the American “Long Count” cultures that end in 2012.  Geez, 2012 seems to be very where these days – but this book deserves an extra look.  I don’t think it is claiming any divine prophecy.

Happy Noruz!

March 21, 2009

I would like to wish everyone out there a happy Noruz – or as most of the world knows it by: Happy Vernal Equinox.  Now which one has more of a ring to it?  Noruz is the Persian New Year and I certainly agree that the spring equinox is a much more appropriate new year than January 1sr.  Today the light and the dark are balanced and for the next 6 months t light shall grow.  Plus, spring has always been about re-birth.  So, Happy New Year and Happy Noruz!

Atlantis Found?

February 27, 2009

The Sun has article up about a set of lines discovered on the sea floor in the eastern Atlantic.  Could this be evidence of the mythical lost civilization of Atlantis?

They exist “Beyond the pillars of Hercules” As Plato referenced.  The Pillars of Hercules are popularly thought to be a reference to Gibraltar.

Of course its in the Sun, so we can take this with a grain of salt.  But the question remains, did Atlantis really exist?
