91. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER TWO: THE SCENARIO OF EXODUS [Quantavolution Website]
... stricken is immaterial; they would have behaved in the same way. They must have felt a fearful loss of power, already experienced from the natural and "divine" forces. But now, as politicians often feel when otherwise powerless, "'Here is a matter we can do something about." We shall go deeply into the matter, but might presently declare what lay behind the changed mind of the Egyptians. In Egypt during the Middle Empire, electricity was a central concern of the government. Among many functions ascribed to the pyramids, one stands out as the most plausible: they were electrical guidance and control equipment, The great gods Horus, Thoth, and Amon, the nearest to Israel's Yahweh, were thunderbolting and cosmic fire gods. The word "pyramid" is Greek and "pyr" means "fire" as in "funeral pyre." Especially later on, the distinction among fires lessened and electrical fire and combustion are given the same word. The Great Pyramid compound at Giza was caled Khuti, "the Lights". Egypt was ...
92. Forum Part Two [SIS C&C Review $]
... primordial times, many millions of years before the origins of the human race. This picture has changed rapidly. Since 1991, more than ten international conferences, dealing exclusively with cosmic disasters and impact hazards, have been organised world-wide. Dozens of astronomers around the globe are now involved in research projects, focusing on past, present and future cosmic catastrophes [7. Above all, it has been argued that both the emergence and the collapse of human cultures, (e.g. the origin of metallurgy, the construction of the Egyptian pyramids, the destructions of the Bronze Age civilisations in the Near East and the Mediterranean, the collapse of the Roman Empire, the rise of Judaism and Islam, etc) should be associated with extra-terrestrial episodes of destruction [8. All these new findings and developments of astronomical and archaeological research seem to verify Velikovsky's main idea: that the apparent destruction of the Bronze Age cultures, documented by various destruction layers around the world [9, and the rise of the sciences, ethical teachings, astronomy, monotheism and historical consciousness, ...
93. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... catastrophes of the Near and Middle East, which I can summarize here. Claude Schaeffer, whose archaeological work in Syria brought him many honors, published as early as 1948 a great compendium of the destruction of settlements in the second millennium before Christ. The end of the Middle Bronze Age, corresponding to the end of the Egyptian Middle Kingdom that we have been studying, seems to have witnessed the complete destruction of every city that had been excavated. The effects of earthquakes were most common. Since it is believed sometimes that the pyramids and other strong stone structures have escaped damage through the ages, it is worthwhile mentioning that even the Great Pyramid exhibits severe damage by earthquake [38. I do not make more of this case and others because there is presently no way of judging whether the damage was caused in the earthquakes of the Exodus. The destruction of Minoan Crete around the same time was exposed by Evans. Evidence of a Chinese catastrophe with a hiatus between the Hia and the Chang dynasties was adduced by Schaeffer and Velikovsky. Previously, the Indus ...

... channel in the Queen's Chamber had metal fastenings, thought to be copper. 2. In the northern channel in the 1870s the following were found: a wooden stick, a granite ball and a little bronze grapnel hook. The hook was probably used in the 'opening of the mouth' ceremony, was called a Pesh-en-kef- and no such instrument of this shape was known before the 18th Dynasty. 3. Two vessels of the 2nd Dynasty proved to be of bronze. 4. Not only is there all this evidence that the pyramids were built at least in the Bronze Age but there are details of the iron plate which apparently sealed the southern channel in the King's Chamber- i.e. it was contemporaneous with the pyramid and could not have been 'dropped' there later. It was not meteoric and it seems that it could originally have been covered with gold. Jill Abery, Rodmersham, Kent Astronomical retro-calculations David Rohl greatly weakens the chronological hypothesis which he very ably presents in A Test of Time when he emphasises that Wayne Mitchell's astronomical retrocalculations support his chronology. ...

... such as the New Zealand moa, has led to suggestions about when various species colonised different landmasses. The work indicates that land bridges existed between Australia/Antarctica and Indo-Madagascar after separation of Africa from S. America. Precessional Pyramid Dating Scientific American Feb. 2001, p. 20 It is suggested that the remarkable accuracy of the orientation of Khufu's pyramid was achieved by sighting of stars from the Great Bear and Little Bear constellations as the present day Pole Star was not in the correct position 4,500yrs ago due to precession. Pyramids built before Khufu are skewed west and later ones to the east by amounts in line with the Earth's precession, from which it is deduced that they can now be dated to within 5 years instead of the usual 100, making the Great Pyramid 4,478yrs old, 75yrs older than currently accepted. Circular reasoning here uniformitarian assumptions?

... it endured for many centuries. Hurry, 16, quoting Budge Imhotep was the builder of the first Step Pyramid. The Imhotepian cult was probably first associated with his tomb, outside the city of Memphis. But the cult spread far and wide, even into Nubia. Al least three temples are known to have been built in honor of Imhotep. Hurry, 42,43 "Since God has shown you this there is none so discreet and wise as you are." Genesis 41:39 Note: In popular tradition the pyramids were for a long time thought to be "Joseph's granaries." The word "pyramid" is a nickname meaning "wheat-sheaf." (Edwards, 295; J. Honorius [fifth century A.D., quoting legend) So Joseph died and they embalmed him and he was put in a coffin in Egypt. Genesis 50:26 In spite of Hurry's assertion, "Imhotep's mastaba will doubtless some day be unearthed," and an intensive search by W.S. Emery (d. 1971), the structure has not ...
98. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt by Emmett Sweeney [SIS C&C Review $]
... Pyramid Age is good value, with some points that are not so easy to dismiss arbitrarily, such as the similarities between Pepi I and II of Dynasty 6 and Apophis 1 and II of Dynasty 15, as has previously been noted by Tony Rees and others. Michael Reade [15 pointed out that while nearly all revised chronologies still assume that the traditional Old/Middle/New Kingdom sequence is correct, The Pyramid Age shows Sweeney is an exception, as are Heinsohn and Lasken. He agrees with Sweeney's general proposition that the pyramids are New Kingdom or later, and offers further supporting evidence for this view. And my own views? I think Sweeney's chronology falls at the first fence, with his starting date of around 1200 BC. This, I think, is several centuries too late. Comparing some 4 metres of flood deposit at Ur with a similar depth of 'ash' at Ugarit is all very well. However, the apparent lack of molluscs in the Ur deposit casts doubt on its flood origin and, according to Roux [16, Eridu ...

... yet more problems. Knotty problem with silk National Geographic November 1993, geographica The Chinese began to weave silk at least 4000 years ago but it was not supposed to have reached further west for around 2000 years. Now, however, strands of silk have been found in the hair of a mummy from Egypt's 21st dynasty, conventionally dated from 1069 to 945 BC. Ancient Mexico National Geographic November 1993, pp. 88-115 and February 1994, geographica The Olmec culture was Mesoamerica's first civilization, beginning 3000 years ago. They built large pyramids, made basalt statues and columns, including nine foot high heads, built elaborate tombs and ritual centres with plazas in which were played a ceremonial ball game and followed a jaguar cult. They are regarded as the mother culture of the later Aztec and Maya. San Lorenzo, in the Olmec heartland in Mexico, is the earliest of the large Olmec centres found so far. It flourished from 1200 BC but something happened around 950 BC. The pottery changed and monuments were deliberately mutilated and buried. La Venta flourished between 800 ...

... and one which is consistent with midsummer watching during a period of wobble. If this proposal of wobble is valid, one should expect supporting data. Egypt springs to mind immediately as a sun worshipping society and as one which was building very large monuments at the start of the megalithic era. One hears so much about the perfect alignment of the pyramid of Cheops that the others tend to be overlooked. The pyramid of Cheops is, in fact, the only one which lines up so well with the cardinal points. Other major pyramids, both pre- and post-dating it, are out by as much as nine degrees. Then we have later evidence. Latitude fixes made by the Greek astronomer Hipparchus, around 130 B. C., are "out" by four or five degrees. Almost half the extant sundials, from 300 B. C. to 300 A. D., are in wrong latitudes today. (6) And we have records of ancient eclipses, numerous first hand accounts of total solar eclipses by people like Herodotus, Thucydides ...
