1. Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: A challenge to the accepted view [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:2 (July 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Tiglath-pileser versus Pul A challenge to the accepted view A. P.McIntyre The identification of the Assyrian king known as Tiglath-Pileser III in conventional history with the Assyrian king known as Pul in the Bible is taken as proven by almost all authorities, including the most adamant Bible scholars and theologians. That this concept is not correct is the subject of this brief essay. This article is taken from a chapter in the book "Bible 7, History 0" by this author. (Winston-Derek Publishers, Nashville, Tenn.) The misidentification of Tigiath-Pileser III with Pul is due primarily because all scholars use an incorrect chronology of the kings of Israel and Judah. The chronology most often used is a "Thiele" type chart which shows the division of the kingdom as about 931 B.C. A few still use an "Ussher" type chart which shows the division of the kingdom as anywhere from 972 B.C. to 976 B.C. (See "The Chronology of Israel and ...
2. Sequence and events [SIS Internet Digest $]
... governor second to none which means he later became Pharaoh. The only need for a governor with as much power as Joseph was invested in is an absent Pharaoh. Sesostris III took a 9 year campaign with most of that time outside Egypt. In Joseph's Egypt placing large populations in the cities of Egypt was a major undertaking. Clark: What evidence do you have that Joseph was a genuine historical figure? James: Nobody denies the historicallity of Egyptian Pharaohs no matter how slim the evidence for their rule might be. If the Bible is correct, then Joseph became Pharaoh. Manetho's name for the Pharaoh after Sesostris was Lamares. During the Exodus Joseph's entombed body was taken out of Egypt by the Israelites. James: Before the Exodus the Bible gives 214 years of Hebrew rule of Egypt before the birth of Moses. Clark: What evidence do you have that Moses was a genuine historical figure? James: Josephus of the first century wrote quoting directly from Manetho that Saites was the first of these Hebrew kings. Saites is the founder of the 15th dynasty ...
3. Heinsohn and the Hyksos (An Answer to Martin Sieff) [Aeon Journal $]
... ancient times as Early Chaldeans (Kasdim, Kassites), Assyrians, Late Chaldeans and Medes (ruling simultaneously), and Persians-- can be found in the ground. By stretching the available evidence, modern scholars doubled these five empires to 10, thus bringing ancient history into line with Biblical chronology and preserving a cornerstone of western civilisation. Martin and I strongly supported Heinsohn's work on Mesopotamia as well as Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos revisions for Egypt. At first I agreed with Martin that Heinsohn's Mesopotamian revisions could be reconciled with Velikovsky's Bible based chronology. But gradually my doubts grew stronger. Martin's reconstruction of ancient history places the Exodus at the end of the Early Bronze, ca. 1500 BCE. Heinsohn was giving 1500 BCE as the beginning of the Early Bronze, and hinting that he intended to lower this key date even further. The crisis came when Heinsohn-- working from conclusions forced upon him by his Mesopotamian chronology-- lowered his date for the Amarna period (and the end of the Late Bronze Age) down to the late 7th century ...
4. Velikovsky and Catastrophism: A Hidden Agenda? [SIS C&C Review $]
... that everything Velikovsky wrote, his scientific and psychological books as well as his historical reconstructions, may derive from this single over-riding nexus. If true, this will place the Velikovsky story in a significant new light. To deduce Velikovsky's stance vis-a-vis Judaism, we begin with a number of conditions that exerted strong pressure upon him. The first and most obvious is the scientific climate in Europe in the last half of the nineteenth century. In a word, if Lyell and Darwin were correct about the history of geology and biology, the Bible was false. If speculation about the size and age of the universe, the distances of stars and the structure of heavenly systems was correct, the Bible was false. To those who believed that science and mathematics would provide a mechanistic deterministic concrete description of all events and beings, the Bible was false. It therefore need hardly be said that anyone growing up in the first decades of the 20th century and being exposed to current classical science and history would be hard put to maintain in the Bible the same faith as his ...
5. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... Jewish state. Since the SIS Glasgow Conference, revisions of ancient history have taken a variety of shapes and forms- influenced either by Velikovsky or the SIS Glasgow school: two distinct camps. Some revisionists remain convinced of the need to dramatically rewrite ancient history, whereas others have opted for essentially a watered-down version of Ages in Chaos. The New Chronology was an attempt, it could be argued, to salvage something from the concept of Ages in Chaos. However it continues to give prominence to Biblical historiography. The role of the Bible in the books of Velikovsky has acted as a magnet, attracting a motley bunch of enthusiasts. However, the idea of the Bible as a reliable historical account has taken a pounding in recent years. Van Seters and TL Thompson, Robin Lane Fox and Norman Cohn [1,2,3,4,5 have all emphasised its late date of compilation and, most importantly, its historiography. Although the Bible was compiled from a large body of traditional material and palace and temple documentation etc. it also made use ...

7. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... As all record of the passage of time has to be based on observation of these bodies, the question arises as to just how this was done in darkness. How did the Israelites know they were forty years in the desert? How did Moses know he was a year older? How long were these 'years'? As though the age attributed to Moses during his leadership of the Israelites was not amazing enough, the ages of the pre-diluvian patriarchs 'surpasses belief'- quoting the words of Diodorus of Sicily. According to the Bible, these extraordinary patriarchs had lifespans ranging from 777 to 969 years. The critical question is how long were these years? Our Society was formed with the intention of trying to resolve such conundrums. Our publication titles contain the words 'Chronology and Catastrophism', i.e., the passage of time and any world-shaking events that may affect time. Although not all our members may be experts in these matters, they constitute at least a cross-section of knowledge and experience that can be used to resolve these critical questions. The facts concerning ...
8. Squaring the Circle -- An Esoteric Tradition? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VIII:2 (July 1986) Home¦ Issue Contents INTERACTION Squaring the Circle-- An Esoteric Tradition? M.D. Stern The problems of Egyptian chronology that have been analyzed so brilliantly by Velikovsky [l seem to be based on a dispute as to the relative historic merits of the Bible as opposed to the Egyptian priest-historian Manetho of the third century B.C. It is a common assumption since the 18th century of Enlightenment that the Bible is essentially inaccurate and confuses myth with a dim recollection of historical events, and therefore cannot be relied upon. On the other hand, classical authors are assumed to be objective reporters of facts even where, like Manetho, they have an obvious partisan purpose. In Manetho's case it is the attempt to show the greater antiquity of Egyptian culture than the rival Babylonian culture as presented by his contemporary, Berossus. It is probable that such Enlightenment propagandists as Voltaire wished to discredit the Bible as part of a campaign against the political power of the Church. As a result, the view of ...

10. And it Came to Pass, in the Days of Amraphel King of Shine'ar: Biblical Veracity and Non-biblical Chronology [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Jan 1990) Home¦ Issue Contents "And it Came to Pass, in the Days of Amraphel King of Shine'ar": Biblical Veracity and Non-biblical Chronology Zecharia Sitchin In simpler days, say a century ago, every schoolboy knew that Abraham was the first Hebrew Patriarch and a contemporary of the Babylonian king Hammurabi (renowned for his law code). Biblical criticism, asking for the scientifically required independent corroboration for the deeds of Abraham, raised doubts regarding his very existence (and the veracity of other Patriarchal and Exodus tales in the Bible); archaeology, invariably confirming the biblical data from the Books of Kings onward, appeared less generous concerning the earlier feats. Was there an Exodus? Since the event is not (so it is generally held) mentioned in Egyptian records, doubt is in fashion. And if it did happen, when? Current view places it in the thirteenth century B.C.; any deviation (even if it comes from the head of a major Near Eastern department) encounters personal abuse. Was there a conquest of Jericho? If ...
