31. Did the ancient egyptians sail up the mississippi? [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 82: Jul-Aug 1992 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects DID THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS SAIL UP THE MISSISSIPPI? No one has found chariot wheels or pyramids attributable to the ancient Egyptians in the Lower Mississippi Valley, nor are their hieroglyphics carved on the rocks in that area. However, there are striking correspondences between the languages of ancient Egypt and those of the Indians that inhabited the areas around Louisiana about the time of Christ! B. Fell, the main pillar of the Epigraphic Society, has stated that the language of the Atakapas, and to a lesser extent those of the Tunica and Chitimacha tribes, are unique in the sense that they seem to be related to no known languages. But there are affinities with Nile Valley languages. In fact, the similarities involve just those words one would associate with Egyptian trading communities of 2,000 years ago. As would be expected, most archeologists will have none of this. "Where are the coins, the buildings, ...
32. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... bronze suddenly fell out of use and iron became the only metal. He himself acknowledges that Homer's Greeks used iron for other tools, and Rohl refers to Homer's 'Iron Age anomalies' in his essay. If iron was not generally used for swords in Homer's time, c.750-700 BC, and was not so used in the Peloponnese until c.650 BC, where is the inconsistency? Other countries present a similar picture. Assyrians were cutting mountain roads for chariotry with bronze tools in the 8th century, while iron was not widely used by the Egyptians until the 26th Dynasty (664-525 BC). According to the received chronology, the so-called Iron Age began in these countries c.1200 BC; according to the revised chronologies 925 BC or later. Genealogies: I discussed the significance of the Spartan king lists in Workshop 1990:1. I am not aware that Rohl has ever claimed that these represented generations- Sweeney is again attacking a mistake of his own making. As for his second point, how does he himself reconcile the genealogy linking Pythagoras to Hippasos (which he is ...
33. Competing for a Greater Antiquity [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... : kings are often invented no monumental confirmation of the existence of many of them was ever found; complete dynasties were invented by him, too. Like Berosus, Manetho tried to impress the Greek masters with the fact that his nation was already ancient when the Greeks only began to emerge from their barbarous state. Such an attitude toward the Greeks was already expressed almost three centuries earlier in the narrative of the priest of Sais to Solon as told in the Timaeus by Plato. Because of written records stored in their temples, the Egyptians were aware of the past of their land, ? so this is why among us here oldest traditions still prevail, and whenever anything great or otherwise noteworthy occurs, it is written down and preserved in our temples,... [but you and other nations that chance to be but recently endowed with the art of writing and civilized needs at stated turn of years there has recurred like a plague brought down upon you, a celestial current, leaving only an unlettered and uncivilized remnant, wherefore you have to begin all ...
34. Ancient Egyptians In Hawaii [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 35: Sep-Oct 1984 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Ancient Egyptians In Hawaii Most people tend to think of the ancient Egyptians as stay-at-homes who were too busy building pyramids to explore far lands. But many artifacts from the South Pacific and even Hawaii hint that they were otherwise. Some Hawaiian rock carvings include well-known Egyptian motifs and even a few hieroglyphics. The three main sites are: (1) the great boulders at Luahiwa, Lanai; (2) the old landing at Anaehoomalu; and (3) at Kii, Kauai. The evidence for an Egyptian presence is even stronger in New Guinea, where the Egyptians may have had a gold-mining colony. Other ancient cultures also frequented New Guinea, where Sumerian beads and bronze weapons have been found by Australian archeologists. Further, there seems to have been a thriving market in the Middle East for bird-of-paradise skins, which could only have come from New Guinea. (Knudsen, Ruth; "Egyptian Signs in the Hawaiian ...
35. The Holy Land [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... ta, often rendered as "earth," refers first and foremost to the heavenly province of the creator-- the ta ab (" pure land"), ta nefer (" beautiful land"), ta sheta (" mysterious land"), ta ankhtet (land of life"), or ta ur (" great land"). Such terms are synonymous with ta Tuat, the "land of the Tuat," the cosmic dwelling of Osiris or Re. In naming terrestrial Egypt ta, the Egyptians gave their homeland the name of the cosmic "place" par excellence. Ta signifies the cosmic dwelling "gathered together" by the creator. That the Egyptians conceived the ta as the "body of Seb" corresponds with everything we have learned of the primeval enclosure. Of equal significance is Seb's hieroglyphic symbol, the egg. The myths say that the egg of Seb is that from which the sun first shone forth (i.e., it is the same as the revolving egg of Atum, the egg of the Cosmos ...
36. Solomon and Sheba [SIS C&C Review $]
... at Gezer in Late Bronze I-II that Bimson [8 equated with its sacking by Solomon's Egyptian father-in-law (cf. I Kings 916), fits just as well or better to Thutmose II. If Thutmose II and Hatshepsut were Solomon's parents-in-law, it is possible that it was their daughter, Neferure, who was given to Solomon for his wife [9. Her Religion During Hatshepsut's co-rulership with Thutmose III there was a trend towards monotheism in Egypt, with Amon-Ra being identified in inscriptions as 'King of All Gods' [10. The Egyptians were admittedly polytheistic, with a marked inclination towards idolatry but in the case of Amon-Ra, as Mallon [11 has shown, this plurality was of titles rather than of gods. The devotion to Amon-Ra developed at the time of Joseph [12, so the monotheism of Hatshepsut's time would have related specifically to the worship of the God of Joseph. Joseph's influence over Egypt must have been enormous. Pharaoh gave him for a wife the daughter of the priest of Heliopolis (Genesis 41:45) and the highly religious Joseph ...
37. "Let There be Light" [Kronos $]
... Earth, was a living witness to some of its subsequent destructions and re-Creations. The cosmic disaster we are about to reconstruct, however, became for him the genesis of Genesis. This occurrence, in some ways drastic but visually glorious, posterity branded as The Creation. Traditions of creation are multifarious; those of The Creation, multiform. One consistent motif connected with the latter is the Universal, Celestial, Cosmic, or Primordial Egg. Budge, echoing the beliefs of H. Brugsch, describes the primitive credo of the ancient Egyptians in these words: "Nothing existed except a boundless primeval mass of water which was shrouded in darkness and which contained within itself the germs or beginnings, male and female, of everything which was to be in the future world. The divine primeval spirit which formed an essential part of the primeval matter felt within itself the desire to begin the work of creation, and its word woke to life the world, the form and shape of which it had already depicted to itself. The first act of creation began with the ...
38. Temple, Crown, Vase, Eye, and Circular Serpent [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... ... Every god shall... rejoice at the life of Ptah when he maketh his appearance from the great temple of the Aged One which is in Annu. (22) Thou art the ruler of all the gods and thou hast joy of heart within the shrine. (23) The great god's shrine, house, or temple is the band of "glory," the Aten: "Your pavilion is enlarged in the interior of the Aten," states a Coffin Text. (24) When the Egyptians laid the foundation of a temple, they consecrated the enclosed ground as "the primeval territory of the domain of the sun-god." Each temple became a miniature of the cosmic habitation founded in the creation. Thus the Egyptians viewed the Edfu temple as "the veritable descendant of the mythical temple that was created at the dawn of this world...," (25) Reymond tells us. (26) The foundation ground became "the Blessed Territory from the time of the Primeval Ones..., the ...
39. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... --- >> VIII The Cosmic Mountain To the images of the enclosed sunand enclosed sun-cross ancient myths add the cosmic mountain-- a column of light rising along the world axis and visually appearing to hold aloft the great god's home. The signs of the Saturnian mountain are and. Throughout the world one encounters the story of a shining peak which once rose to the centre of heaven. Though this cosmic mountain appears under many different names, accounts from every section of the world tell much the same story. The Egyptians knew the great column as the Primeval Hill, the Babylonians as the World Mountain. The mount passed into Hinduism as the cosmic Meru, into Iranian myth as Hera-Berezaiti, and into Chinese myth and astrology as Kwen-Lun. Mexican cosmology gave it the name Colhuacan. Its most familiar representatives were Olympus and Zion. But does not Olympus refer to the well-known peak in Macedonia, and Zion to the small hill in Palestine? In truth the mythical Olympus and the mythical Zion are the same mountain; only their terrestrial representations differ. ...
40. The Israelite Exodus and the Volcanic Eruption of Thera [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... this work, and a period of conflict followed. Finally, Hatshepsut allowed them to leave Egypt, but the gods punished them-- "the earth swallowed up their footsteps" through an unexpected upsurge of Nun (the Egyptian name for the primeval waters). [8 This, according to Goedicke, is the Egyptian version of the oppression of the Israelites, their exodus from Egypt, and the sudden flood at the Yam Suph (usually translated "Red Sea" or "Sea of Reeds"). Naturally, the Egyptians thought the flood had been sent to destroy the Asiatics, while the Israelites interpreted it as sent by God to destroy the pursuing Egyptians. The sudden flood supposedly was due to a tsunami produced by the final explosion and collapse of Thera. Some have surmised that the Israelites were traversing the narrow sand spit north of Lake Sirbonis when the eruption occurred. The recession of the water from the shore (an event that usually precedes tsunamis) would have allowed the Israelites to cross any gaps in the sand bar, and when the ...
