31. Early History of the Israelite People by TL Thompson [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 2 (Dec 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Early History of the Israelite People by TL Thompson (EJ Brill, New York, 1992) TL Thompson has caused something of a stir with the publication of this extensive work, nay- a controversy. Heads have rolled- the head of TL Thompson ... pet schemes- where ever they rely on biblical chronology which he claims is based on number symbolism. Thompson makes the point that the dynasty of Omri and Ahab is a known historical fact by reason it is recorded by the Assyrians. It was also specifically associated with the city of Samaria- there is no evidence it was ever known as Israel (? ... of the Assyrian empire. At that moment in time the northern kingdom came to an end. Rees it seems to me has shone a torch into some obscure areas of biblical historicity which seem to require some kind of interpretation. I am not quite sure what it means but there is a possibility that the inclusion of Saul and Ishbaal in the list of ...

... .. "There is nothing absurd in the possibility of cosmic collisions.... What then is all the furor about?... In the 4.5 billion year history of the solar system, many collisions must have occurred. But have there been major collisions in the last 3500 years, and can the study of ancient writings demonstrate such collisions ... linguistical affinities, Padden, in taking no less than Cyrus Gordon to task, noted that "competent linguists simply do not compare isolated words of unrelated languages in order to demonstrate historical relationships. No one has yet established a continuity of linguistic families between the hemispheres in the pre-Columbian period" (Padden, "On Diffusionism and Historicity," American Historical Review ... 78, 4: Oct. 1973, pp. 996-997). Sagan's brief discussion (pp. 10-11) of the Nahuatl word "Teo" as "a clear cognate of the common Indoeuropean root for god, preserved, among other places, in the words 'deity' and 'theology'" turns out to be a most inept diffusionist argument against the ...
33. The 108-year Cyclicism of the Ancient Catastrophes [Aeon Journal $]
... Patten Introduction After having read with care the Old Testament and Velikovsky's first and greatest work, Worlds in Collision, (1) a certain amount of knowledge of ancient Near Eastern history became imprinted in my mind. In addition, I had achieved a degree in geography from a major university, and that geographical viewpoint influenced every observation, every question, every ... The result should be that catastrophes could not fall on anniversaries; they would always be in different months of the year for sequential flybys. My rejoinder was based on the straight-forward historical recounting from the Old Testament, Josephus and Ginzberg. "But they were on anniversaries," I said, citing Exodus 14:41: And it came to pass at ... a new 365-day year. Their methods of adjustment were several. The Chinese accepted a 366-day year, and along with that, changed their circle to 366 degrees. Uniformitarian minded historians and scientists must ignore this great case Velikovsky had created. If they do not ignore it, and since the data is sound, they would have to face the issue that ...

... those who are neurotically reenacting their repressed traumatic experiences from a subconscious compulsion involves anamnesis- a recalling to mind on the conscious level those events which are buried in an individual's psychic history. In Velikovskian terms, those events were both traumatic and real; early man's suffering was caused by "disorders in the solar system of a purely mechanical nature. Early man ... Mankind's thought. But he, too, apparently restricts his ideas to uniformitarian precepts seemingly unconcerned with catastrophic factors.

If it can be documented empirically that the prophecies of the Scriptures can be trusted, one would have reasons to accept the promise of an unhindered development of the history of mankind to its final fulfillment in the Kingdom of Christ on Earth.

Newton's studies of prophecy are an essential element in his astronomical thought, and it is a crime against sound scholarship to ignore them, as it has been done unanimously by all historians of science. Since Newton intended to reconcile Christian theology with empirical evidence, it was even more important to him to prove that comets had not brought about catastrophes on Earth within ...

... From: Proceedings of The Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1986) Home¦ Issue Contents The Dating of Hammurabi D. Hickman Several years ago an article expressed the idea that Hammurabi, king of the first dynasty of Babylon, was a contemporary of David, king of Israel. This conclusion was based upon quotations from the Mari letters cited ... Werner Keller in his book, The Bible as History. Keller explained that the years of the kings of Mari were dated and identified by reference to a notable historical event. In particular, he cited three date-formulas which mention the Benjaminites or Benjamites: [1 "The year in which Iahdulim went to Hen and laid hands upon the territory of the Benjamites ... this premise is correct, then the fall of the Kassite Dynasty in 1160 to 1156[86 is the same as the fall of Ur III in 1920 B.C.
