1. The Light of the Seven Days [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The Light of the Seven Days Isaiah in describing the days to come, when great changes in nature will take place, says that the earth will give its increase in abundance, and ? the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of the seven days... .? (1) One could think that ? the light of the seven days ? refers to the seven days of creation however, the actual explanation appears to me to be different: the expression ? the light of the seven days ? refers, in my view, to the seven days preceding the Flood that are referred to in the verse: ? For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth.... And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth.? (Genesis 7: 4, 10) It is not explained in the text after seven days of what? ...
2. Sabbath [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Sabbath The idea of naming the days of the week in honor of the seven planets was, according to Eusebius, introduced by the Persians at the time of the war of Xerxes against Greece. (1) Dio Cassius, the Roman author of the fourth century, wrote that the division of the week into seven days in honor of the seven planets originated with the Egyptians, and then spread to other peoples. (2) Even today the names of the days of the week in European languages can be traced to the names of the planets. Thus the Roman dies Solis (Sun), or Sunday, is Sonntag in German; dies Lunae (Moon), or Monday, is lundi in French and Montag in German; dies Martis (Mars), or Tuesday, is mardi in French and martes in Spanish; dies Jovis (Jupiter), or Thursday, is jeudi in French and Donnerstag in German; (3) Friday is dies Veneris (Venus), or vendredi in French, while Saturday is dies Saturnis, the ...

Did this construction relate to the ancient cosmologies, which speak of seven or nine layers, steps or tiers of heaven? That the ancients were in the habit of erecting large, four-sided or pyramidal towers is well known. But why did so many of these buildings consist of seven to nine stories? The earliest Egyptian pyramid, the one constructed by king Djoser at Saqqara, was a so-called 'stepped' pyramid, formed of six layers on a rectangular ground plan. The Babylonian ziggurats or temple-towers of the 1 st millennium ...
4. The Pleiades in Aboriginal Mythology [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... stated definitely that great climatic changes occurred when one of the stars in the constellation Pleiades was abducted by the Dream Time Hero. The remaining stars went far to the west and brought freezing conditions and ice to the Clarence Basin and caused annihilation of the population. It goes on to relate that after the return of their sister, the Pleiades returned to the east and asked the Sun to melt the ice.(2) In Aboriginal mythology there are many stories of the Pleiades: they are given female attributes and are known as seven sisters. In this there is a pronounced similarity to legends from all over the world: "Those stars are only apparently six (for the seventh is sometimes so dim as to be invisible), yet all the world over, among civilized and savage races, in Europe, in India, China, Japan, America, and Africa, this diminutive group is not merely regarded as seven stars, but what is still more surprising, as "The Seven Stars", though the far brighter seven stars of the Great ...
5. Pluto's Rank Again - Needs Changing... [SIS Internet Digest $]
... identified the various ancient names for planets. Where Kugler (whose various works are referenced by Velikovsky) saw a sunlike-meteor in association with Venus, Velikovsky saw "Comet Venus." Both researchers fell victim to what this author calls the "bibbu boo-boo." There is considerable reason to suspect that the majority of our planet's namesakes were comets-- probably of the Encke family. For instance, we can read from W.M. O'Neil (1975): "The word planet comes from the Greek planetes, the wanderers; these seven celestial bodies moved among the fixed stars. The Babylonians had a more picturesque name bibbu, the wild sheep, as these bodies broke through the fixed formation in which the tame sheep crossed the sky." To call into question Greek continuity of planet identity I refer to Leonardo Taran's work on the "Pseudo-Platonic" Epinomis (1975) where in commentary on lines 986 A 8-987 D 2 Taran states: Having previously proved to his own satisfaction that all the heavenly bodies are the greatest divine living beings and having pointed out that ...
6. Festivals of Light [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Festivals of Light The Deluge and the seven days of brilliant light immediately preceding it were a universal experience, and they left indelible memories. Many of the religious rites and observances of all creeds go back to these events of the past in which the celestial gods Saturn and Jupiter were the main participants. Among the most ancient of all such observances were festivals of light of seven days ? duration, held in honor of Saturn. The ? seven days of light ? just before the Deluge overwhelmed the Earth are recreated in these feasts. (1) Herodotos describes a nocturnal light festival held each year at Sais in commemoration of Osiris ? death and resurrection. It was called the Feast of Lamps: There is one night on which the inhabitants all burn a multitude of lights in the open air round their houses.... These burn the whole night.... The Egyptians who are absent from the festival observe the night of the sacrifice, no less than the rest, by a general lighting of lamps; so that the illumination is ...

8. On Mankind in Amnesia [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... eyes it was Horus-Jupiter assuming royal power, leaving Osiris to reign over the kingdom of the dead. My conclusion that, as a result of its interplay with Jupiter, Saturn exploded as a nova, I found confirmed in many ancient sources, in which Saturn is regularly associated with brilliant light; but I was led to this idea first of all by a certain clue contained in the Biblical account of the Deluge. The story as found in the book of Genesis starts with these words: ? And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the Flood were upon the earth ?(Genesis 7:10). It is not explained, after seven days of what? Some words seem to be missing here from our text of the Old Testament. It is clear, however, that Isaiah refers to the same seven days in his description of the messianic age to come, when ? the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light ...
9. Letters [SIS C&C Review $]
... Babylonian (Prince Nebuchadnezzar) and had to retire hurt to Egypt. The subsequent history of the Near East could well have been happier if Necho had never intervened. Michael G. Reade, Checkendon, Oxfordshire Refs: 1. K.A. Kitchen, The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt, Aris& Phillips Ltd., Warminster, 1986, p. 407, para. 369. The Queen of Sheba Adam Green (Letters, C&CR 1997:2) has suggested that the word 'Sheba' should perhaps read Sheva= seven. Adam is thinking in terms of a Queen that was Egyptian rather than a goddess consort of the god of Jerusalem, Salmanu (variously Hyam Maccoby and Tom Chetwynd in SIS). It is worth noting that goddesses such as Anath and Ishtar were closely associated with the number 7 and Isis with 70. Indeed, the 'dance of the seven veils', now confined to strip joints, had roots in the ancient middle east and cultic rites associated with goddesses. In trying to rationalise the number 7 we may note its ...
10. Joseph and Imhotep [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIII:2 (July 1991) Home¦ Issue Contents Joseph and Imhotep John W. Hand Abstract Egyptian and Hebrew literature both refer to a period when the Nile River did not come for seven years causing famine in the land of Egypt. The two accounts have many common elements. They are also related in time. The viziers at the time, Joseph in the Hebrew record and Imhotep in the Egyptian story have so much in common that they must be one and the same person. Seven Lean Years Egypt depends upon the Nile today as it did yesterday for water to irrigate its crops which provides its livelihood. In addition, the annual flooding of the river provided the soil nutrients needed for healthy growth. The flood stages were measured and recorded at the First and Second Cataracts and at temple Nileometers from the beginnings of recorded time. A normal flood meant bountiful crops but a flood only 80% of normal resulted in a severe famine for that year. The annual flooding was caused by heavy monsoon rains near the ...
