121. <i>Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities</i> Journal (Review) [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Alan R. Schulman (JSSEA, March 1980, 105-55). (6) "The N'RN at Kadesh Once Again," Alan R. Schulman (JSSEA, January 1981, 7-21). After reviewing the history of the N'RN question Schulman concludes that this term refers to a social class. He suggests it is roughly understandable as a "Knightly squire or on occasion a Knight in the service of a greater lord" (p. 11). Schulman further determines that the N'RN at the battle of Kadesh represented as Egyptians were in fact Egyptians; it seems that Egyptian artistic conventions of this period show that foreign troops were depicted in their own garb and with their typical weaponry-a fact which undergirds his previous conclusion (see pp. 11-13).

122. Rethinking Hatshepsut [SIS C&C Review $]
... this dynasty. Over the last 40 years, hundreds of excavations have been conducted in the Delta, which has now been thoroughly explored, but these have only confirmed that there was no XVIII Dynasty palace there. Slaves, Plagues and the Red Sea Probably the major problem with the XVIII Dynasty line-up is the absence in that dynasty of any evidence in Egypt for the presence of a large number of slaves, the devastation of Egypt by the ten plagues, or the destruction of the Egyptian army. It has been claimed that the Egyptians did not record their defeats, which is true, but it should be recognised that the XVIII Dynasty was the most powerful dynasty that ever ruled Egypt and also the best documented. Such a disaster would have left some hint of it in the Egyptian records- but this dynasty was affluent and serene. There is just no place for an Exodus of the dimensions indicated in the Bible. The result has been a downgrading of the Exodus. In Andrews University I studied under Dr Horn and well remember him proving to us logically ...
123. The Crescent [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... crescent must have appeared to revolve around the band with every full rotation of our planet upon its axis. One could thus render the daily rotation of the crescent schematically:. As we shall see, there is a distinctive relationship of this revolving crescent to the phases of the archaic "day" and" night"-- as well as to many other aspects of ancient cosmography. But let us take the present line of inquiry a little further. Does the equation of the crescent and enclosure occur also in Egypt? The Egyptians (as previously observed) called the enclosure Aten, recorded by the hieroglyph. (In the course of time this symbol evolved into the simplified form, with the enclosed sun dropped out) It is the latter form that generally prevails in later Egyptian art.) In numerous representations of the Aten a crescent forms the lower half of the enclosure. In fig 52, I offer an imposing example from the tomb of Ramesses VI, showing the Aten resting within a crescent and flanked by four male figures, two right and ...
124. Weinert's Hypothesis [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... himself had used when he constructed his cosmological scenario of catastrophe in the 15th century BCE. Weinert's major findings, in a computer-assisted description of a planetary fly-by to Earth, were that the optimum size of another celestial body would have to be equal to that of the Earth itself to conform to the events related in Exodus and that the order of cataclysmic events also would have to occur in the exact sequence described in the Hebrew and Greek versions. The story in Exodus has the fleeing Israelites encamped by some sea, with the pursuing Egyptians coming up from behind to entrap the camp of Israel. A celestial apparition which had appeared easterly, almost overhead, and perhaps somewhat north, moved toward the west as the sun set. A strong east wind came up, billowing clouds of desert sand, which separated the two camps. The sea began to flow westward as the night wore on, as the apparition once more moved to the east and nearly overhead, and the winds increased in velocity, helping to part the sea and to dry the exposed bottom mud ...
125. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Pensee]
... us would have been aware of it had it not been for Freud. Velikovsky, a profound psychoanalyst, has discovered the Egyptian prototype of Jocasta, who gave birth to Oedipus and later shared his marriage bed. It is Queen Tiy, who had borne Akhnaton to Amenhotep III. Velikovsky makes a strong case for a conjugal relationship between Tiy and her son Akhnaton that resulted in progeny in the person of their daughter Beketaten. Pharaohs often married their sisters, but a sexual relation between mother and son was just as abhorrent to the Egyptians as it was to the Hebrews and Greeks. Indeed to make the story comprehensible, the Greeks had to render the marriage of Jocasta and Oedipus a horrible tragedy of which both parties were innocent when they wed. Oedipus was unaware that he was killing his own father when he slew Laius, and that he was taking to wife his own mother, when he married Jocasta. For the ancients, crime could be unforgivable regardless of intent or even awareness. Siring children from the womb that had borne the father, was a ...
126. DWARF MAMMOTHS IN ANCIENT EGYPT? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 95: Sep-Oct 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Dwarf mammoths in ancient egypt? Dwarf mammoths may have survived in northeastern Siberia into historical times. (SF#87) Given this possibility, B. Rosen wonders whether the ancient Egyptians might have known of them. He points to some evidence that they might have. For example, one scene painted on the tomb of one pharaoh represents tributes brought from afar to Egypt, including a parade of exotic animals. One of these animals is an obvious bear. This animal would have intrigued the pharaoh because bears and ancient Egyptians did not coexist. Just as exotic to the pharaoh would have been the miniature elephantid following just behind the bear in the painting. It was about the same size as the bear. Since this elephantid was depicted with large tusks, it was definitely not an immature. It also displayed the peculiar domed skull typical of mammoths and which is absent on African elephants. Could it have been a ...
127. EARTH'S OLDEST PAVED ROAD [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 94: Jul-Aug 1994 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Earth's oldest paved road Forty-three miles southwest of Cairo lies a basalt quarry favored by ancient Egyptian artisans. Old Kingdom craftsmen laboriously cut this hard, black, glassy rock into royal sarcophagi and pavements for the mortuary temples at Giza just outside Cairo. To transport the heavy blocks of basalt from the quarry to Giza, the Egyptians built a quay on Lake Moeris, which then had an elevation of 66 feet above sea level and was located 7 miles southeast of the quarry. (The Lake is now much smaller and 148 feet below sea level, indicating a large climate change.) Then, when the Nile flooded and its waters reached a gap in the hills separating the Lake and the Nile, the Egyptians were able to float the blocks of basalt over to the Nile and down to Cairo. Good thinking! But how did they transport the heavy blocks 7 miles from quarry to quay? The answer: What ...
128. Notes and Queries [SIS C&C Review $]
... would have been impressive- but these had been cut from stone: gabbro, basalt, diorite and aragonite. I was quite astonished at the workmanship and mystified as to how they had done it- the handles were perfectly symmetrical, about 50mm wide, and each handle had a hole approximately 3-4mm diameter drilled right through it. Gabbro is a rough igneous rock, aragonite is a hard carbonate and diorite is one of the hardest igneous rocks. If the relative dating is correct (if!), it confirms that the earliest Egyptians were accomplished stoneworkers, with hard tools and capable of machining rock into precise, delicate shapes. Bernard Newgrosh tells me that on a visit to Israel, he saw similar remarkable stone vases in a museum- some so so finely cut that the stone sides were translucent. How did they do it and what tools did they use? Alasdair Beal, Leeds, W. Yorks. A. These Egyptian stone vessels are indeed remarkable, They were made with a bow-drill and the crushed-up stone they were working (like using diamond ...
129. Egyptians In Acadia? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 88: Jul-Aug 1993 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Egyptians in acadia? The Micmac are an Algonquian tribe living in that part of eastern Canada called Acadia. In contrast to most tribes of North American Indians, the Micmac possess their own written language. This language was supposedly invented and taught to them by Pierre Maillard, a French priest who lived among the Micmac in the Eighteenth Century. The strange part about the Micmac writing is that its signs are often very similar to Egyptian hieroglyphs having the same meanings. B. Fell made this association in his book America B.C. He noted further that the priest Maillard actually had died 61 years before Champollion first published his decipherment of Egyptian hieroglyphics. It is unreasonable, therefore, to believe that Maillard could have invented Micmac writing with its Egyptian affinities. Either the affinities are the product of chance or Precolumbian contacts occurred between the Micmac and Egyptian voyagers. In the latest volume of Epigraphic Society papers, Fell discusses many additional ...
130. Monitor [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... its length, we are unable to print in full. Wilson's evidence is a rather colourful analysis of the arrangement of the Pyramids of Giza, built during the 27th century BC (by conventional dates). His alarming conclusion is that they show that the Solar System has been stable since their construction, which is used to justify Harlow Shapley's decision "to prevent by all possible means the spread of Velikovsky's ideas until such time as admissible evidence on the subject might be presented". Amongst Wilson's assumptions is the notion that the ancient Egyptians had access to an accurate value for the velocity of light; also that the pyramids of the Giza complex represent the planets Mercury, Venus and Earth (he takes the areas of the pyramid bases to be in relation to the volumes of these planets). Johnson's refutation indicates that Wilson's values for both the bases of the pyramids and the volumes of the planets are matters of some dispute, and that the relationship claimed to exist is therefore rather fanciful. As he points out, Stecchini's fit of data (in SECRETS OF ...
