21. Egyptian Language Anomalies [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1994 No 2 (Dec 1994) Home¦ Issue Contents Egyptian Language Anomalies by Jesse E. Lasken Introduction Conventional and 'New' chronologists agree that thirty dynasties ruled Egypt for around 3,000 years. They divide Egypt's history from 'Dynasty 3' (or sometimes 'Dynasty 4') until Roman rule into an Old Kingdom, First Intermediate Period, Middle Kingdom, Second IntermediatePeriod, New Kingdom, Third Intermediate Period, Saite Dynasty, Persian Period, and Ptolemaic Period. The main difference in the 'New' chronology involves the substantial shortening of the Third Intermediate Period and the related movement of the 'New Kingdom' to about three centuries later than the conventional dating. However the dynastic framework depends upon the dubious use of certain epitomes of Manetho. Whatever the justification for the tentative formulation of this chronological hypothesis around 1830 (dubious even then), it cannot withstand objective evaluation [1. Several lines of evidence suggest the need for a substantial compression of Egyptian chronology. Indeed, I have suggested c. 1700 BC as the ...
22. "Worlds in Collision" and the Prince of Denmark: II. Hamlet and Meso-American Myth [SIS C&C Review $]
... ). HAMLET AND BRUTUS Lucius Junius Brutus, ancestor of the Marcus Brutus who assassinated Caesar, grew up in great danger under the tyrant Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, his uncle who murdered both his father and his brother and had had incestuous feelings towards his mother. Brutus was thus forced to feign insanity to divert the dictator's suspicion that he might be revengeful and dangerous. Then, when the time was right, he revealed his true nature and either killed or expelled the tyrant, later becoming one of the first consuls in the new Roman republic (23). Roman history thus describes a time of political transition; but, whilst the naming of local people and dates gives it an air of historicity, its form is unquestionably mythical, and of a type with those of Arthur, Theseus, Charlemagne, Sargon of Agade and Jesus- unsuspected future kings who are scorned in their youth (24). In all cases, the public revelation of the hero's worth and his consequent ascension to power are associated with social events leading from an undesirable political condition to ...
23. RECOLLECTIONS OF A FALLEN SKY - VELIKOVSKY AND CULTURAL AMNESIA : CHAPTER : [Quantavolution Website]
... creating mind, for Scarus then Yon ribaudred nag of Egypt Whom leprosy o'ertake! 3.10.9-11. In three lines of dialogue, there is a conjunction in Shakespeare's mind of pestilence, death, Egypt and leprosy. Yet, while the defeat of Antony may have overtones of a divine Old Testament holocaust, its consequence, the victory of Octavius, is cast in a New Testament mould. To quote from one critic: Octavius- Caesar as he is always called in Antony and Cleopatra- was to become Augustus, perhaps the greatest of Roman emperors, creator of the Pax Romana that closed the long period of unrest, revolution, and war, with the time of peace in which Christ was to be born. Thus, in the war with Antony, when Antony's allies have deserted and sympathy for him is at its strongest, Caesar redresses the balance by a brief but significant reminder of his future role in history: The Time of universal peace is near. Prove this a prosp'rous Clay, the three'nooked world Shall bear the olive freely [26. Thus, ...
24. The Secret of Baalbek [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the attention of the visitor to Baalbek who inspects the wall of the acropolis is drawn to stones of a bossed shape with an indented rim on all four sides of the face of the stone. O. von Richter in 1822 60 and S. Wolcott in 1843 61 drew attention to the fact that the quaders of the wall of the temple area of the acropolis of Baalbek have the same form as the quaders of the Temple of Solomon, namely, of the surviving western (outer) wall, or Wailing Wall. The Roman architects, wrote Wolcott, never built foundations or walls of such stones; and of the Israelite period it is especially the age of Solomon that shows this type of stone shaping (chiseling). The photograph of the outer wall of Baalbek ? s temple area illustrates that the same art of chiseling was employed in the preparation of stones for its construction. Whatever the time of construction of other parts of Baalbek ? s compound neolithic, Israelite, Syrian, Greek, or Roman this fundamental part of the compound must have originated ...

26. My Kingdom for a Horse ... [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Christian era; he wrote twenty volumes of history on his people, the Jews. He is always cited as an authority in all ancient Egyptian accounts, and he is the only original source of both Ancient Jewish and Egyptian history. Josephus is also important for biblical history, as he sets the time of Hebrew enslavement. An educated man, a man of high standing, respected by the Romans, Josephus is referred to as the first Jewish historian, indeed, the Father of Jewish history. In the impending conflict with the Roman invaders Josephus tried to dissuade his countrymen from fighting, because losses would be enormous and the Jews could not win. In going over to the side of the Romans he lost the respect of the Jewish community. He was nevertheless taken prisoner during Vespasian's reign and accompanied the emperor to Egypt. In 70 A.D. he joined Titus, Vespasian's son, in his march on Jerusalem, acting as an interpreter. Some scholars take this to mean he fought on the Roman side against his countrymen. When the war ended Joseph was ...
27. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 14: THE GODDESS GAIA [Quantavolution Website]
... of the Mediterranean Region by Hugh Crosthwaite Chapter 14 THE GODDESS GAIA The priest-electricians were aware that the deity was to be found not only in the sky as lightning, but also in the earth. In Greek, chthon is the earth, Gaia is the goddess in the earth. The snake was seen in the sky as a dragon, and was associated with radiation and its effects, but it was also a creature living in holes in the ground, and snake tubes were incorporated in Cretan houses where the snake was like the Roman genius, guardian of the household. We have suggested that the Egyptian ka was an electrical aura or halo round a person, especially round the head, the electrical headquarters. It was associated with health and life, and appears in the Greek greeting chaire! chairete! Hail! Raise the ka! [airo= raise. Chairete is very close to the Hebrew chaya, to live, to be well, to enjoy life. The plural chayim is life. Chai, alive, looks and sounds like a reversal of ...
28. The Role of Collective Amnesia in Retarding the Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Kronos $]
... the heaven and the firmament, sun and moon.... This fool wants to turn the whole area of astronomy upside down. But as the Holy Scripture testifies, Joshua ordered the sun to stand still, not the earth!" The Copernican theory was, as its author saw in advance, silenced for almost a hundred years; scientists were afraid to study or to teach it- the only exception being Giordano Bruno. After nine months in the dungeon of the Venetian Inquisition and seven years in the cell of the Roman Inquisition, Bruno was burned at the stake in Rome for his denial of the Immaculate Conception- a theological heresy- and for his teaching of the Copernican theory, which he extended by claiming the plurality of worlds. For Bruno, the fixed stars were not lights attached to an enormous sphere that bounded the universe, as Copernicus thought them to be. They were suns, like our Sun, encircled by planets, and some of these he believed were populated by intelligent beings. "You are perchance more afraid to pronounce ...
29. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 19: LIFE [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS A FIRE NOT BLOWN... Investigations of Sacral Electrical Roots in Ancient Languages of the Mediterranean Region by Hugh Crosthwaite Chapter 19 LIFE Words for life cross the frontier between Semitic and Indo-European languages in the period of Greek and Roman civilisation. Greek bios resembles the Latin vigere, to be well and strong, in that it is a common word for life in the sense of day to day physical existence. Grimm's law helps us to see the relationship. Related to vigere are vis, stem vi, force or power, vita, life, and vivo, I live. The Greek is, in-, force or presence, originally began with a digamma, a letter like our f. It is the same as the Latin vis, and related to bios. Sanskrit giv is the Russian zhiv-, alive. Turning from the material or physical aspect of life, we find the key word in Greek, psyche. It is generally translated 'soul', and means the principle of life. ...
30. THE DEVINE SUCCESSION: PART I. THEOMACHY: CHAPTER FIVE: LEGENDS AND SCRIPTURE [Quantavolution Website]
... interplay among history, legend, and scripture may be offered. It concerns the Christian Gospels of the life and work of Jesus. These are four in number, all written some years after the death of Jesus, under circumstances that have never been clear. Furthermore, as the reader will acknowledge, attitudes towards the Gospels and Jesus have ranged from the denial that he ever existed, passing through an acceptance of the Gospels as generally or exactly true, to other extreme ideas such as that Jesus was a Jewish radical rebelling against Roman rule, whose story was censored in the Gospels. Dr. Livio C. Stecchini, both an ancient historian and a historian of science, for several years before his death taught a college course on the trial of Jesus. There he developed a theory that Seneca, the Stoic philosopher, dramatist, and Roman statesman, was the basic source for the Gospels. His brother met Saint Paul of Tarsus when Paul was imprisoned in Rome awaiting trial and execution, and Seneca himself could have interrogated Paul at will, given his ...
