191. Thoth Vol. IV, No 9 May 31, 2000 [Thoth Website]
... to 'guilty' or 'not guilty'. Innocence is a matter beyond the ability of deliberation to determine. And in science, this deliberation convicts currently accepted theories as being fundamentally religious and not scientific. For were they truly scientific they would be 'currently-not-rejected' theories. Bernstein notes that "in a dynamic world, there is no single answer under conditions of ... somewhere I must begin with not doubting". The founding elements of knowledge, those fundamentals the certainty of which justifies all subsequent knowledge, were matters of belief. Science and religion were thus anchored to the same foundation. But I gravitated to Camus: In an absurd world, he asked, is it possible to live without hope? In The Rebel ... to offer translations of previously unknown ancient texts. Antiquarians --ethnologists, archaeologists, and students of the archaic languages --assumed without question that the celestial forms celebrated in the great "sky religions" answer to the Sun and Moon and other bodies as they appear in our sky today. But what would happen to our understanding of the myth-making age if we set this ...

... of these is real and the other is speculative. It has been substantiated that religion played a part in some of the actions against Velikovsky. Oddly, his theory joined the religious and scientific forces in efforts to suppress his work. The conflict between science and theories about catastrophes originated in the last century. Some religionists claimed that the Earth was exactly six ... speculators who exploit the sensational aspects of the ancient world. By not investigating and clarifying some of the data, it is left to opportunists who prefer hypothesizing to critical analysis. RELIGION The previous causes were general and create strange reactions to many new ideas. There are two other causes of the affair that are related to what Velikovsky said. One of these ... . Oddly, his theory joined the religious and scientific forces in efforts to suppress his work. The conflict between science and theories about catastrophes originated in the last century. Some religionists claimed that the Earth was exactly six thousand years old and all features of the Earth must be explained by catastrophes. Some scientists claimed that the Earth was millions of years old ...
193. Chapter 6: SYMBOLS AND SPEECH [Quantavolution Website]
... add new postures towards linguistic content and style. Partial incorporation of the language of groups newly encountered, whether as subjects of conquest or as conquerors, is often a factor. Religious divergence is especially important when disasters of various kinds occur, focusing intense attention on new sacred beings of the world and all objects and relations supposedly touched by their holy hands. ... . The final form of much human output is largely symbolic, as with scientific, technical, and ordinary discourse, also with art, some myth, and a part of religion and magic. Ernst Dichter, a well-known human relations consultant, produced for the use of manufacturers and advertisers an encyclopedia devoted to the Psychological connotations of a great many industrial designs ... children recognize this dilemma; children sometimes stop talking altogether. Exceptions occur privately, in dreams. 'Mad poets' can speak differently. So can scientists. Drunks can babble. Religiously-inspired persons can "speak in tongues" unknown. We can learn other languages, best when very young and the process is approved by our attendants. It is not uncommon of ...

195. "Let There be Light" [Kronos $]
... matters cosmogonical, these "unaccepted" literary compositions come closer to describing the actual train of ancient events, even if garbed in more fanciful terms when judged by "accepted" religious standards, than do the authorized sequels we find embodied between the covers of the Christianized Bible. The Book of the Secrets of Enoch, in fact, describes the "Creation ... similar Book of Job, Enoch contains much that is of value in understanding the religio-cosmological beliefs of ancient times. When we compare such works with those of other nations and other religions, we often come to the realization that, in matters cosmogonical, these "unaccepted" literary compositions come closer to describing the actual train of ancient events, even if garbed ... and only in the beginning of this century did it finally resurface in Europe. Like the somewhat similar Book of Job, Enoch contains much that is of value in understanding the religio-cosmological beliefs of ancient times.

... of deposits of the Earth and reported them to be the result of universal deluges; just as often they have been rebutted by scientists who see in their studies the hand of religious authority. The greater the controversy, the less immediate the conviction that my few paragraphs here can convey. Nevertheless, I will state that an unbiased scientist must today admit that ... Whiston, who had explained the Deluge by a comet, he then wrote the first scientific work uniting the four factors; comet, flood, terror, and the origin of religion. G. R. Carli followed in a few years with additional world-wide legends and geological evidence of catastrophe. The ancient reports of universal catastrophe, both men reasoned, bore ... . But note that Okeanos (the Ocean) had, as a rebellious Titan, already been expelled from Heaven before Poseidon left it. So the Great Deep of the earliest religions was a watery sky. The final waters of the Great Deep were broken up at the time of the Noachian (or Poseidon) Flood. But there was "a long ...
197. 'Worlds in Collision' and the Birth of Monotheism [SIS C&C Review $]
... of the Israelite religion. The unique circumstances of the Exodus may have brought about a "mutation" in the Israelites' view of man and the universe, enabling them to abandon the worship of nature and embrace monotheism, and of incalculable influence on the development of religious thought. Recent work on the origins of monotheism has tended to erode the older view that monotheism grew gradually out of polytheism. Frank M. Cross, for example, writes, "Israel's religion appears, even in our earliest sources, as a new construct ... " and the forthcoming "Jewish-Christian Mediaeval Disputation"; contributor to New Testament Studies, Encounter, The Listener, Midstream, etc., and an editor of Jewish Quarterly and European Judaism. The catastrophes postulated by Velikovsky have considerable implications for the development of the Israelite religion. The unique circumstances of the Exodus may have brought about a "mutation" in the Israelites' view of man and the universe, enabling them to abandon the worship of nature and embrace monotheism, and of incalculable influence on the development of religious thought. ...
198. The Egyptian Prince Moses [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... he first met Yahweh, on the slopes of Mount Sinai. With regard to the Burning Bush incident as recorded in Exodus, is it not revealing that Jubilees made no reference to it? But Antapanus did. Perhaps we should consider the Burning Bush as a watershed religious experience in Moses' life, a conversion separating his life into two distinctly different religious careers-- both of which were spectacular. In his first career Moses served the gods of Egypt; in his second career he ardently served Yahweh, the God of Israel ... . For these reasons then Moses was beloved by the multitudes, and being deemed by the priests worthy to be honored like a god, was named Hermes, because of his interpretation of the Hieroglyphics. Artapanus obviously spoke with clarity. His Moses was steeped in the religion of the Egyptians; he certainly would have some unlearning to do at the Burning Bush, where he first met Yahweh, on the slopes of Mount Sinai. With regard to the Burning Bush incident as recorded in Exodus, is it not revealing that Jubilees made ...
199. The Amarna Iconoclasts - Who were the Real Criminals? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... not to impose modern standards onto ancient material. How far- by Egyptian standards- can a charge of criminality against the state be levelled either at Akhenaten or his successors? The dictionary definition of an iconoclast is one who: overturns ideals or principles, or destroys religious imagery Taking the first of these, what did Akhenaten overturn? The art forms and iconographic representation he promoted are different, but can be argued as within the set traditional framework of Egyptian artistic principles. He set up a new religious centre and capital city- ... rays to the sun and finally place a representation of the king below it. Thus the focus of attention was moved from the god to the king. This can be seen as a very clever religious act, but certainly fits the description of iconoclasm- it was religiously motivated erasure intended to promote his views by attacking gods and people. Within the Amarna city area we have many examples of this sort of action. A bust apparently originally intended to be of Kiya was usurped by Meretaten. On a picture also apparently of Kiya ...
200. Puritanism, Misogyny, and Female Sexuality [Aeon Journal $]
... , gynophobia (male fear of women and especially of sexual women), and the repression of female sexuality, are all present in our own as well as other cultures. It is here argued, via an examination of ancient texts, myths, legends, and religious beliefs and practices, that they have a common origin in the Yahwist religious reforms with which Hebrew scripture is largely preoccupied, reforms which only succeeded in ending the worship of the old deities with their attendant rituals-- including sacred prostitution and child sacrifice-- ... for the prophet is addressing Jerusalem as a whore. But it is plainly the women of Jerusalem to whom God's words (through the prophet) are being addressed. The passage clearly contains references to religious practices associated with female sexuality that belonged to the older, idol-worshipping religion, which continued to be practiced in Jerusalem: sexual acts on high places and the sacrificing of children to these idols. The latter is a barely concealed reference to infants as burnt offerings to certain gods: Ba'al or the Ba'alim; Moloch or Milcom/Malcom ...
