81. Venus And Sirius [Kronos $]
... ...."(10) This statement of Assurbanipal is interpreted as meaning that the king "considered Istar of Arbela the divine impersonator of Sirius".(11) Istar of Elam and Istar of Babylon are also defined as the Bow Star, or Sirius. This link of the Venus festival with Sirius persisted until the Middle Ages among the Harranians.(12) The celebration of the Assyrian and Harranian festivals to Venus when Sirius was rising heliacally should not be neglected by students of the Canopus Decree, and of Sothic chronology.

82. Hammurabi and the Revised Chronology [Kronos $]
... not include the Thirteenth and end the Twelfth in 1786 B.C. Wilson does not include the Thirteenth and ends the Twelfth ca. 1800 B.C. Steindorff and Seele likewise exclude the Thirteenth and end the Twelfth in 1780 B.C., and so on.- LMG We have previously discussed the difficulties that followed from leaving only one hundred years for the Hyksos period.(11) The great change in scenery between the end of the Middle Kingdom and the New Kingdom made Flinders Petrie claim that an additional period of 1461 years (one Sothic period) must be placed between the two eras; but this view did not prevail. Nor were retained as valid the historical sources (Josephus-Manetho) that allotted 511 years for the Hyksos period; nor was the consideration of cultural changes, as advocated by H. R. Hall- who pleaded for four or five centuries for the Hyksos period- given a chance. When the end of the Twelfth Dynasty was brought down to -1680, there was no time left for the Thirteenth; and with only one century for the ...
83. Radiocarbon Dates for the Eighteenth Dynasty [SIS C&C Review $]
... chronology tested by the new method of radiocarbon dating. A full catalogue of the most important correspondence that he engaged in during those years was published in Pensée (1), and makes very disconcerting reading. When Velikovsky began his campaign hardly any C14 results from Egyptian material of the New Kingdom- the period affected by his revised chronology- had been published. Yet the replies he received from the various Museum authorities he approached for further tests (and full publication of the results) displayed a degree of faith in the accepted, Sothic based, Egyptian chronology that bordered on utter complacency. In 1964 Velikovsky did succeed in securing the test of a mixed sample of wood from the tomb of Tutankhamun (P. 726). The result given was 1030 50 b.c., which. corrected by the Suess calibration to c. 1250-1350 B.C., falls just within the range of the conventional date for Tutankhamun's death. However. as Velikovsky (2) and Burgstahler (3) have pointed out, the result from cedarwood (which composed just under half the ...
84. How Much Did They Know? [SIS C&C Review $]
... order- the more so as Stecchini had contributed two articles (one entitled "The Inconstant Heavens"!) to The Velikovsky Affair in 1966. The evidence of cosmic stability provided by the alignments of the Great Pyramid and of megalithic stone circles is one of the strongest arguments against a full acceptance of Velikovsky's ideas, and it would be useful to have some informed debate on this topic. One would also expect Tompkins to be aware of the existence of a serious challenge to the traditional Egyptian chronology, and yet he refers to Sothic cycles as if their reality were beyond question. But this apart, Stecchini's work is most impressive, and one feels that it would have justified expansion to form a book in its own right. The research set out by A. E. Berriman in his book, Historical Metrology (now unfortunately out of print for some years) parallels that of Stecchini, though its scope is rather different. Berriman was an engineer who devoted many years of spare-time research to investigating the ancestry of the traditional units of measurement (principally of ...
85. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... of Thutmose III, cannot be ruled out. There is also a good deal of evidence for co-regencies during the XVIIIth Dynasty which I took into account in my article. It is at least possible that these overlaps have been understated. I accept that a timescale which squeezes the XVIIIth and XIXth Dynasties into less than 300 years, as compared with the 350-years-plus accepted by conventional historians, is very tight. However, I have no doubt that this latter timescale has been unjustifiably extended in order to fit the so-called "astronomically fixed" Sothic dates which are widely accepted on a basis which, as Velikovsky, Courville and Long have all shown as a result of independent research, must now be regarded as highly suspect. [Footnote: The lines quoted from von Beckerath above read in translation "Mention must finally be made of the 16th Year of this king, which dates an inscription on the lid of a vessel seen in a dealer's. The text, which is no longer available for inspection in the original, is curious in a number of respects; at ...

87. Comets, Meteorites and Earth History [SIS C&C Review $]
... and Gallant presented an interesting series of calculations demonstrating how ancient man could have periodically adjusted his old calendars to new astronomical conditions. He went on to introduce climatological, archaeological and calendrical evidence to suggest that the final calendrical change, from a year of 360 to a year of 365 days, took place around the beginning of the Iron Age, which Gallant linked with the start of the sub-Atlantic climatic regime c.750 BC. He also strongly supported the view, by pointing out major discrepancies between the Egyptian records and the requirements of the Sothic dating system, that the conventional chronology for Egyptian history was incorrect and requiring shortening by some half a millennium. In the third section of his talk, Gallant outlined the possible mechanism for the catastrophic changes in the Earth's rotation that the calendar changes suggested. Using numerous slides of geological features, he demonstrated the mounting evidence for major impacts on the Earth's surface by exoterrestrial objects. If one accepted that the upper crust of the Earth could slip on the fluid layers below, then, he argued, the energy injected by an ...
88. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt [SIS C&C Review $]
... of circumcision but also in the story of the apparently ritual homosexuality of Sodom. Thus a wealth of evidence links the story of Abraham to the very beginnings of literate civilisation in the Nile valley. The literary evidence is supported by archaeology and elucidated by it. Therefore the millennium which, in conventional chronology, separates Abraham from Menes is an illusion and the entire history of the ancient world is utterly distorted. The ancient world's chronology is based on a fallacy and needs to be completely reconstructed. Removing Egyptian chronology from the straightjacket of Sothic dating and bringing it forward by a number of centuries produce spectacular results. Firstly, the culture-bearing migration from Mesopotamia to Egypt at the dawn of history, which the Hebrews recalled in the story of Abraham, now takes its rightful place. A few generations after Abraham, according to the Scriptures, the Israelites moved into Egypt after one of them, the seer Joseph, became vizier to the pharaoh. Joseph, we are told, solved the crisis of a seven-year famine by interpreting the king's dream. Similarly, Egyptian history ...
89. Magi, The Quest for a Secret Tradition by Adrian Gilbert [SIS C&C Review $]
... his 'official' royal birthday (and that of his father Mithridates). Antiochus left a similar inscription in the High Canyon in Arsameia-ad-Nymphaeum, one-time capital of Commagene. This has a shaft sloping at 35, which Gilbert worked out would be illuminated by the sun on 29th July 98BC, when the sun would be in conjunction with Regulus, the brightest star in Leo. It was also the day of the first heliacal rising of Sirius after 70 days invisibility. Gilbert says Antiochus was setting up a new calendar connected to the Egyptian Sothic one and that he was familiar with and possibly initiated into Hermetic Mysteries. Much later in the century, his son Antiochus II 'would have been very interested in celestial phenomena at this time of the year. It so happens that on 29th July 7BC, at the start of their new year, the conjunction between the two largest planets in the solar system, Jupiter and Saturn, was still in evidence. This would have been of more than passing interest to the astronomers of Commagene and possibly elsewhere in the Near East. ...
