41. The Great Father [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... , (18) denoted by the circle in the sign Regulator. Atum is the stationary god, the "Firm Heart of the Sky." His hieroglyph, however, is the primitive sledge, signifying "to move." As the central light or pivot, he imparts motion to (or "moves") the heavens, while he himself remains em hetep, "at rest." Directing the celestial motions (and the related cycles) he becomes the god of Time. (19) The Word. The Egyptians recall Atum as the ancient Voice if heaven: The Word came into being. All things were mine when I was alone. I was Re [= Atum in his first manifestations. The texts describe the god's "first manifestations" (20) as the bringing forth of his companions (his "limbs"), which issue-- or explode-- from the god as his fiery "speech." This circle of secondary divinities receives the name Khu, meaning "words of power," but also " ...
42. Astronomy and Chronology [Pensee]
... literature in Egyptology but also complete libraries dealing with man's past are composed according to the scheme set up by Egyptology for all other branches of ancient history. Everyone is agreed that Egyptian chronology is so well devised, century by century, decade by decade, and often year by year, that no new evidence could break down this massive growth. What, then, is the foundation of this system, which the Egyptologists have concluded is absolutely firm and from which scholars in other fields have confidently borrowed their data and standards? The Egyptians are not known to have had any continuous system of counting years by eras. Events were dated according to the ruling years of the Current dynasty. Hatshepsut's visit to the Divine Land took place in the ninth year of the queen; the battle of Kadesh occurred in the fifth year of Ramses II. Sometimes, however, a king and his son ruled together; in that case the chronology of the dynasty cannot be built merely by adding the years of the monarchs, since it is not always clear whether the years of ...
43. Deification of the Planets [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Deification of the Planets The Sun and the Moon are two great luminaries, and it is easily understandable that the imagination of the peoples should be preoccupied with them and should ascribe to them mythological deeds. Yet the ancient mythologies of the Chaldeans, the Greeks, the Romans, the Hindus, the Mayans, preoccupy themselves not with the Sun or the Moon, but prima facie with the planets. Marduk, the great god of the Babylonians, was the planet Jupiter; so was Amon of the Egyptians, Zeus of the Greeks and Jupiter of the Romans. (1) It was much superior to Shamash-Helios, the Sun. Why was it revered by all peoples? Why was the planet Mars chosen to be the personification of the god of war? Why did Kronos of the Greeks, Saturn of the Romans, play a part in hundreds of myths and legends? Thoth of the Egyptians, Nebo and Nergal of the Babylonians, Mithra and Mazda of the Persians, Vishnu and Shiva of the Hindus, Huitzilopochtli and Quetzalcoatl of the Mexicans, were ...
44. Egyptian Cosmology [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2001:1 (Jun 2001) Home¦ Issue Contents Egyptian Cosmology http://www.eclipse-chasers.com/akhet.html Akhet- The Horizon of Heaven or something else? by Aymen Ibrahem (email@example.com) Abstract: The Egyptologists may have inappropriately interpreted the Egyptian hieroglyph symbol Akhet as the "horizon". In this article, the author attempts to demonstrate that the hieroglyph symbol Akhet stands for "solar eclipse" and not "horizon". He also puts forth the idea that the ancient Egyptians believed that the solar eclipse was the heavenly abode of the Sun. The author goes on to show that Karnak may have been a representation on Earth of the Sun's heavenly habitation, the solar eclipse, and that the pylons of Egyptian temples were gigantic representations of the sign Akhet. After demonstrating the ancient Egyptian conceptions of sunrise and sunset, the article then attempts to interpret the name of the Great Pyramid as the 'Eclipse of Khufu', Akhetaten as the 'Eclipse of Aten', and that the name of the mighty Giza Sphinx means ...
45. Historical Supplement [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... the trouble to chisel out the name, he was serious about stopping the worship of this god. However, Velikovsky suggested that, since Akhnaton did not remove the name of Amenhotep II, Akhnaton's interest was not only in religion, but also in "killing" his father for eternity. MARRIAGE Mitanni, where Akhnaton probably lived as a child, had Iranian customs which considered mother-son marriages holy. Akhnaton used the epithet "Living in Truth" possibly because he openly portrayed this relationship and tried unsuccessfully to have it accepted by the Egyptians in general. This added to the dissatisfaction that later helped in the removal of Akhnaton. There were other indications that Akhnaton was knowingly married to his mother. Akhnaton insisted that he was "husband of his mother" (a big clue!), and his mother Queen Tiy was called "King's Mother and Great Royal Wife". It under today's customs, translators find this phrase incomprehensible- Akhnaton apparently was polygamous. In addition to the implied marriage to his mother, Queen Tiy, he had some younger wives. ...

... reckoned however from the calends of January from where Julius Caesar made the year begin; and of the years called "years of Augustus" it is the 265th in the same way reckoned from the calends of January although- according to L.Munatus Plancus- the imperator Caesar, the divine son, was proclaimed Augustus by the senate and the rest of the citizens on the 16th day before the calends of February [of the year when he [Caesar was consul for the seventh time and M.Vipsanius Agrippa for the third time; but the Egyptians, as they had come two years earlier under the power of the Roman people, count this year as the 267th. By us as well as by the Egyptians certain years are mentioned in writings called by them "of Nabonassar" because they are enumerated from the first year of his reign. Of these this is the 986th; in the same way [the years of Philip, counted from the death of Alexander the Great, and of which 562 have passed. Of those, however, the beginning is always from ...
47. Truce of Attrition [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... is an extended truce equally just to both parties?*** If it had been up to the mediator and the Truce Commission, the population of Jerusalem would have died of thirst. If it had been up to the Truce Commission, the Jewish settlements of the Negev would have been starved out. The Israeli road to the Negev crosses the Egyptian supply road from the coast to Hebron and Jerusalem. Count Bernadotte ruled that every day for six hours the crossing should be open to the Israelis and for six hours to the Egyptians. But the Egyptians occupied strategic heights and did not allow the Israelis to use the road. The new mediator, Dr. Bunche, and the Commission did nothing to enforce the ruling. The Egyptians constantly shelled the Israeli settlements in the Negev and only ten days ago we read that in one of such bombardments the young daughter of the Israeli military governor of Jerusalem was killed. With the approach of the rainy season the Israelis sent a convoy of food to the Negev. The convoy was smashed by Egyptian artillery. Then ...
48. HERAKLES AND HEROES [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS KA by H. Crosthwaite CHAPTER SIXTEEN HERAKLES AND HEROES HERODOTUS writes about Egypt in the second book of his history. In Chapters 42 and 43 he discusses Herakles, reporting that the Egyptians regarded him as one of the twelve gods. Greeks, he says, took the name Herakles from Egypt, that is, those Greeks who gave the name Herakles to the son of Amphitryon. Amphitryon and Alkmene were of Egyptian parentage. Seventeen thousand years before the reign of Amasis, the twelve gods came from the eight, and Herakles was one of them. Such is the Egyptian story. Herodotus went to Phoenicia and talked to the priests of the temple of Herakles in Tyre, where there were two obelisks, or pillars (stelae). The priests said that the temple was as old as Tyre, at least 2,300 years. At Thasos, he says, there was a temple dedicated to the Thasian Herakles, built by the Phoenicians who founded Thasos after sailing in search of Europe. This was ...
49. Some Preliminary Remarks About Thera and Atlantis [Kronos $]
... and was submerged and invisible by the 6th century B.C. In order to equate this account with the eruption of Thera, one would need to discount the semi-fabulous part; shrink a huge island to a tiny one; physically transport it from the Atlantic Ocean to the East Mediterranean; change its mode of destruction from quake and flood to massive volcanic explosion; divide the 9,000 years by 10 without any textual justification and despite its "ring of truth" (not as real history but as the very type of thing that Egyptians of that day told the Greeks),(4) then, still subtract 500 years from this figure to fit the revised chronology; and explain why an island which is and always has been perfectly visible, and which, in the 6th century B.C., supported a vigorous population of seafarers was said to be totally submerged. Plato's references to the Atlanteans' conquest of Western Europe and North Africa are archaeologically undetectable for any period, and the statement that Athens then ruled Greece seems untrue for any time much earlier than ...
50. Saturn As King (Addenda et Corrigenda) [Kronos $]
... Par -'a30, giving Hebrew Para-o, where the first 'h' [in 'Pharaoh'is a function of the pronounciation rather than the spelling, and the final 'h' a mere orthographical convention." I also stated that "in ancient Egypt, the common word for 'king' was 'suten'." (4) Once again, this is only partly correct. "Suten" seems to be a conventional vocalization of the earlier reading "swtn." "But," Lowery assures me, "no one supposes the Egyptians said 'suten,' because it has long been agreed that Egyptian had no 'e'." So that "suten" could just as easily have been pronounced "sawtin,"" 'switna," or even "sutani" The reading "swtn" of the hieroglyphs, which actually depict the phonetic sounds sw, t, and n, has, however, "long been abandoned in favor of 'nsw,' conventionally vocalized 'nesu '" I continued by saying that "a more ancient form, however, was 'erpat ...
