291. The Exodus Problem and Its Ramifications [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... century; (2) a recognition of the famine in the reign of Sesostris I of dynasty XII as a reference to the famine in the time of Joseph; (3) a definition of the time period from the famine to the Exodus as 215 years and not 430 as popularly held; (4) a recognition of the evidence provided by Brugsch long ago that dynasties XII and XIII both had their origin in the immediate families of late dynasty XI; and that (5) when dynasty XII ended for lack of a male heir to the throne, the rule passed peaceably to one of the princes of dynasty XIII, Kha-ankh-re by name (Chencheres of the Greeks). I am also firm in thinking (6) the Hyksos invasion occurred about 30 years after Kha-ankh-re, marking the point of the Exodus; (7) a placement of dynasty VI parallel with XII in such a manner as to end coincident with XII, thus leaving dynasties VII to X, as well as XIV and a remnant of XIII, in the Hyksos period; by ...

... works; in literature the oldest.-- Edward Bulwer-Lytton (1803-1873) Kids' Quotes: Actual quiz answers Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread, which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He died before he reached Canada. Solomon had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines. The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we wouldn't have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a female moth. Homer was not written by Homer but by another man of that name. Socrates was a famous Greek teacher who went around giving people advice. They killed him. Socrates died from an overdose of wedlock. After his death, his career suffered a dramatic decline. Eventually, the Romans conquered the Greeks. History calls people Romans because they never stayed in one place for very long. Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be ...
293. Shamash The Sun God [SIS Internet Digest $]
... Ian's Response from the British Museum: Date: Thu, 08 Feb 2001 12:07:37 +0000 From: DCollon@british-museum.ac.uk To: email@example.com Subject: Re: Gorgons The image you sent us is a terracotta plaque about 11.5 cm high excavated at the site of Khafajeh in the Diyala region north-east of Baghdad during the excavations of the Oriental Institute of Chicago in the 1930s. It is now in the Oriental Institute Museum in Chicago. it probably dates to the 19th or 18th century BC. It shows a male deity, identifiable by his horned headdress. It cannot be Hammurabi, as you suggest, since he never claimed divine status, but we cannot be sure which of the many warrior gods is depicted. The other figure is a real puzzle and no one has come up with a satisfactory explanation. I deal a lot with iconography and it baffles me too! It has been linked with the sun, for obvious reasons and, because of its single eye, with Cyclops figures which do often appear in early Near Eastern art ...
294. The Amarna Royal Tomb [SIS Internet Digest $]
... side chamber (again in good condition until the 1930s) is another death scene, again with a woman being mourned by king and queen with a child being handed to a wet-nurse. The adjacent text names Meketaten (one of the daughters of Akhenaten and Nefertiti). The scene does not appear to be a duplicate of those in the preceding room- do we have 2 daughters or 3, all dying in childbirth. The context strongly suggests that Akhenaten was the father in each case, presumably becoming increasingly desperate to have a male heir. The portrayal of the (supposedly divine) king and queen yielding to public displays of grief and anguish is quite unique. The presence of courtiers including the vizier suggests that the court had gathered to celebrate the birth, but turned to mourning as events took a different turn. From a purely artistic point of view it is noteworthy that the pictures are not confined to a single wall but flow round from one to the next. This is not quite novel but was certainly a recent innovation, the first occurrence dated ...
295. The Amarna Period and Levantine Archaeology [SIS Internet Digest $]
... 1 Kings 9 tell us that Solomon built a palace for his Egyptian queen "up from" the city of David. The most obvious area for this in terms of topography is the high ground beyond the Damascus Gate, where nowadays we find a French monastery, German school and the Garden Tomb visited by many. In the monastery enclosure a collection of Egyptian items has indeed been found. Amongst the smaller objects are some late 18th dynasty alabaster jars, part of a small statuette (from the base design, possibly of a female but little can be inferred), and a funerary stele with lotuses being offered to a god, probably Seth from the surrounding context. Osiris is mentioned in some surviving text on the stele. This would fit in the post Amarna period as Seti and the Ramessides generally were proponents of worship of Seth. In the grounds the head of a column was found with typical Egyptian-style palm leaves opening. A series of tomb chambers- in fact adjoining to the Garden Tomb itself- is also here. All measurements of these large ...
296. Book Review [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... merrily ignores all this and assigns unwarranted planetary identities to the gods mentioned in the theogony. For example, Apsu, attested as god of the primeval sweet waters becomes, of all things, the Sun! Ea, as it suits Sitchin, is sometimes the planet Neptune and sometimes a spaceman. And the identity of Ishtar as the planet Venus, a central feature of Mesopotamian religion, is nowhere mentioned in the book- instead Sitchin arbitrarily assigns to Venus another deity from Enuma Elish, and reserves Ishtar for a role as a female astronaut. By ignoring the received and deduced knowledge of Babylonian religion Sitchin weaves an extended space fantasy around his own unjustifiable identifications. In doing so he reveals the sloppiness and shallowness of his thinking, rapidly becoming silly and credulous when he turns to the evidence of religious art. The curious and heavily symbolic glyptic art of Mesopotamian cylinder-seals is a dangerous playground for speculations especially when the author- and presumably most of his readers- know nothing about it. In this and other areas of local representational art, Sitchin rapidly degenerates into ...
297. Errata [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the Columbia river was incorrectly identified. We also gave an incorrect address in Langdon's subsequent letter in Workshop, identifying his home as Washington D.C. instead of the correct Washington state. Our apologies. Mrs. Elizabeth Gaudry of Eastbourne draws our attention to an error in her letter in Workshop vol.2, no.4 p.12. "The word "cave" should instead read "cove", i.e. the megalithic symbol for a womb. The centre of the second circle is marked by a phallic monolith. In the processional avenue, the female principle is represented by triangular stones." Again, our apologies. LAST WORD SIMPLE THOUGHTS Maybe we should ask Peter Simple of the Daily Telegraph to join our Monitor team. In his "Way of the World" column recently he offered the following, under the heading "Wonders of Science": "Scientists are eagerly discussing the possible effects of the eruption of Mount St. Helens on climatic conditions in this country. Spectacular sunsets are promised; also red suns and blue and green moons. "There is a striking ...

... conditions. To this end a systematic genetic response is triggered and 'macro-evolutionary' events create a whole new inter-reacting biosphere. Man, Zysman believes, appeared suddenly at the end of the Pleistocene era, about 32,000 BP, a new species created from Neanderthal man at the time of a magnetic field reversal. The trigger was massive electrical exchanges between Earth and a passing comet-like body. Zysman rejects any ideas of random mutations caused by cosmic rays but suggests that, at times of extra-terrestrial catastrophe, the relevant parts of genes in female gametes rotate through 180, thus instantly producing a new species incapable of breeding with the old and requiring the first new generation to be produced by parthenogenesis. This explained the myth of the virgin birth and the Great Earth Mother. Our second speaker, Bernard Newgrosh, had fortunately arrived in time to fill his designated slot before lunch. He gave his audience much food for thought about the validity of currently accepted dating methods and their relevance to the many problems of both the orthodox chronology of the ancient world and revisionist schemes. ...
299. Abraham and Phallicism [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1988 No 2 (Jan 1989) Home¦ Issue Contents Abraham and Phallicism by George R. Harvey Two seemingly unrelated events occurred during the biblical Abraham's lifetime which were strictly phallic in nature: the first Scriptural recording of the religious practice of circumcision and the drama at Sodom concerning a male homosexual act. Proponents of Dr Immanuel Velikovsky's theory of an upset Solar System give many instances of religious ceremonies which can easily be explained as the attempt by a terrified people to appease the gods or angels by imitating or otherwise relating to the astronomical phenomena they witnessed [1. I wish to propose a similar explanation for the two phallic events. These may have been two different, already old, ways of trying to relate to the heavens after Saturn's loss of the column which appeared to have reached from Earth to Saturn. The heavens needed to be assuaged in Abraham's day because of the obvious danger from above which was to culminate in Sodom's destruction. I lean towards the arguments of those who believe Venus was the agent of Sodom's ...
300. The 1989 ISIS/SIS Nile Cruise [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... mark everywhere, like some ancient Kilroy, and he even managed to rule supreme at our fancy dress party towards the end of the trip, when Bill Manley, dressed as the celebrated egomaniac, won a bottle of wine for his impersonation. The quality of the local wine, however, was amply demonstrated when we came to finally disembark and Bill had almost to be forced to collect his prize! The ladies had had no difficulty in donning flowing gowns but enormous fun was had by all in trying to recognise those of our male company who had succumbed to the sales techniques in Esna and appeared in local Egyptian garb, their 'nightdresses' not exactly complemented by glimpses of European shoe and sock. The official itinerary for Upper Egypt included a trip by felucca to Kitchener Island and the mausoleum of the Aga Khan after our return from the flight to Abu Simbel, but seven of us, deciding to stay steeped in more ancient history, hired our own felucca and sailed across to the west bank to explore rock tombs of local governors from the 6th Dynasty and ...
