11. Problems of Early Anatolian History Part I [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... rather than having Median or Persian affinities. Also, the location of the Urartians conforms closer to the traditional area of the Mitanni according to the common belief of most scholars. 23 Indeed, Herodotus provides us with an interesting note in this regard: "This stream (halys) which rises in the mountain country of Armenia runs first through Cilicia and afterwards it flows for a while with the Matieni onthe right, and the Phrygians on the left: then when they are passed, it proceeds with a northern course separating the Cappadocian Syrians from the Paphlagonians who occupy the left bank." 24 This, of course, would place the Mitanni (Matieni) further west than generally realized. Herodotus actually mentions them six more times (I. 202; II. 89; V. 52; V. 49; III. 94; and VII. 2) in which he puts them in an area east of Armenia and in a satrapy of the Persian Empire (the XlXth). This satrapy was in a mountainous area which was the source of many ...
12. The "Great and Terrible Wilderness" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... mountain-high waves rushed onto the land, became a theme of tradition and legends of many nations. A Greek legend personified this upheaval in a battle of Zeus and Typhon, which took place over the sea, between Egypt and Syria. The origin of the legend and its historical background are clarified in Worlds in Collision. Strabo quoted Pindar: ? It was father Zeus who once among the Arimi, by necessity, alone among the gods, smote monstrous Typhon of the fifty heads.? Strabo added: ? But some understand the Syrians are Arimi.? This is the Greek legendary version of what happened at the Sea of Passage. The Arimi were Hebrews, who were called Arameans: Their origin was from Aram. Toufan of the Arabian author is the same as Typhon of the Greek author; Arim of the Arabian author is Arimi of the Greek author. he ? flood of Arim ? of the Arabian tradition was originally not the ? rupture of the dyke ? but the ? flood of the Hebrews,? the flood which got their name because they ...
13. Evidence of the Prophets and Egypt [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... , Sennacherib (Hebrew, Sanekherib; Assyrian, Sin-ahhe-eriba) ruled about 700 B.C. and is evidently too late for the events under consideration. Perhaps the cylinders ascribed to Eriba-Adad II belong to Jareb. 31. The prophet Amos, a contemporary of Jeroboam, stated that the God of Israel would "send a fire into the house of Hazael, which would devour the palaces of Ben-Hadad... and the people of Syria shall go into captivity unto Kir, saith Yahweh" (1:4-5). Later, the Syrians returned from captivity at Kir (9:7). Kir is elsewhere mentioned in association with Elam (Isaiah 22:6). Tiglath-Pileser III deported the Syrians of Damascus there after he killed Rezin (2 Kings 16:9). Possibly this Kir or Qir was Kar-Tikulti-Ninurta, near the city of Ashur. Founded by Tikulti-Ninurta I (1244-1208 B.C .-CAH, ii-2 274), it was inhabited into the eighth century B.C. (Ibid., 293, 301). 32. John J. Bimson, " ...
14. The Chronology of Israel and Judah Part I [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Kings 22:51). He died of injuries suffered in a fall and was succeeded by his brother Jehoram (Joram) the son of Ahab in the eighteenth year of Jehoshaphat of Judah (900), according to 2 Kings 3:1. Jehoram (Joram) the son of Ahab ruled twelve years (900-889 B.C.). It was also accounted the second year of Jehoram the son of Jehoshaphat (2 Kings 1:17). Thiele has plausibly argued that when Jehoshaphat went to war with Ahab against the Syrians (Arameans) at Ramoth-Gilead in the battle in which Ahab was mortally wounded, Jehoram was named heir-apparent. [12 In the fifth year of Joram of Israel (896), while Jehoshaphat was still alive, Jehoram was reaffirmed as king of Judah. He began to reign alone after the death of Jehoshaphat-- but then killed all other potential rivals to the throne. He ruled in Jerusalem for eight years (896-889), according to 2 Kings 8:17. Because he followed the ways of Israel (he ...
15. The Two Jehorams [SIS C&C Review $]
... and his son Jehoram (7), and this explanation is preferable to that offered by Velikovsky. (2) The Battle of Ramoth-Gilead. It is difficult to see the contradiction in the Biblical account of the battle of Ramoth-Gilead that Velikovsky points to. I Kings 22:34 simply describes the wounding of Ahab and his request to be withdrawn from the front line of battle; this is in no way contradicted by the following statement that "the battle increased that day and the king was stayed up in his chariot against the Syrians, and died at even..." Nor is there any contradiction between I Kings 21 and 22 such as Velikovsky has argued: "Ahab humbled himself and the misfortune fated for his lifetime was postponed to the next generation." Elijah the Tishbite had given the word of the lord that "... in his son's days I will bring the evil upon his house" (I Kings 21:29; emphasis added). Sure enough, unlike his second son Jehoram or his widow Jezebel, Ahab did ...
16. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... and the trade in horses and chariots. I do not believe that Solomon was the sole Israelite merchant benefiting from this maritime venture- but in any case there is no evidence. The evidence within the next three verses is surely tribute, not traded expensive presents for 'advice'. The trade in horses and chariots can be seen as a prerogative of the king, both being items for war. Selling such items for offensive warfare could be a dangerous game unless this action was driven by an alliance situation with the Hittites and the Syrians- remember that the Syrians under Hadad and Rezon had recaptured Damascus and were adversaries to Israel all the days of Solomon, yet here he is selling them implements of war. I can only reason that this was towards the end of Solomon's rule, when he was looking elsewhere for military assistance. There is no mention in the Bible of obtaining horses from Cilicia to sell to the Hittites, who lived closer to Cilicia than did Solomon.

17. The Correct Placement of Haremhab in Egyptian History [Kronos $]
... a fan, and throughout the texts he carries the honorific title "the fan-bearer to the right of the king". On another block (Berlin fragment), Haremhab is shown in front of another group of Egyptian dignitaries; he and the rest of them display obeisance by bending their bodies before the king whose likeness is not preserved. Haremhab, though in front of those who pay homage, is not depicted larger than the others in the group; he also has no diadem on this bas-relief. Dignitaries of foreign lands, Syrians being prominent among them, are also shown paying homage and affirming their role as vassals to the king, whose likeness is destroyed. The text, reconstructed by Gardiner, makes it appear that the foreign chiefs availed themselves to Haremhab's good standing with the king to assure him of their loyalty: Words spoken to His Majesty-- when-- came the great ones of all foreign lands to beg life from him, by the hereditary prince, sole friend and royal scribe Haremhab, justified. He said, making answer ( ...
18. On the Placement of Haremhab: A Critique of Gammon [Kronos $]
... ), "The Correct Placement of Haremhab in Egyptian History", pp. 3-22. 5. Which Gammon himself admits-- see SISR, p. 55: Sir Alan Gardiner's 1953 JEA article "contains circumstantial evidence linking him [Haremhab to the Amarna period" (italics added). 6. Gammon, SISR, p. 55. 7. That the el-Amarna period was followed by Ethiopian and Asiatic domination is strongly suggested in the tomb of Tutankhamen. There, a painted chest shows Tutankhamen waging war against Ethiopians and Syrians.-- See I. Velikovsky, Oedipus and Akhnaton (N.Y., 1960), p. 149 and footnote; C. Desroches-Noblecourt, Tutankhamen (N.Y., 1963), pp. 80, 81, 297. Cp. C. Aldred, Akhenaten, Pharaoh of Egypt (N.Y., 1968), p. 241. 8. Gammon, SISR, p. 55. 9.

19. Shishak - Ramesses II or Ramesses III? [SIS C&C Review $]
... , the easiest course seems to be to opt for Ramesses III as Shishak, and this is certainly more likely to find support in the scholarly world simply due to its smaller reduction. My own preference remains firmly with Ramesses II. Either way it seems that Shoshenq I comes about the same time, c.800 BC [53. Shoshenq might then be the 'saviour' of northern Israel mentioned in II Kings 13:5, provided that his list of subject towns can be taken as Israel's voluntary subjection in return for protection against the Syrians [54.

... complete the work, but broke it off in deference to an oracle, which warned him that his labour was all for the advantage of the 'barbarian' as the Egyptians call anyone who does not speak their language. He then turned his attention to war; he had triremes built, some on the Mediterranean coast, others on the Arabian gulf (The Red Sea for Indian Ocean trade) where the docks are still to be seen, and made use of his new fleets as occasion arose; and in addition he attacked the Syrians by land and defeated them at Magdolus, afterwards attacking (Cadytis) Gaza, a large town in Syria... Then after a reign of sixteen years, he died, and was succeeded by his son Psammis' [10. The canal was a significant undertaking: according to Herodotus, 'the length of the canal is four days' journey by boat, and its breadth sufficient to allow two triremes to be rowed abreast'. Although commenced by Necos, the work was completed by Darius the Persian, a fulfilment ...
