191. The Miracles of the Exodus by Colin Humphries and The Moses Legacy by Graham Phillips (Book reviews) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1400 BC. However, this is essentially derived from his preconceived Exodus synchronism with the Thera eruption. An ice core anomaly at 1390 BC may lend support to this date but strangely he rejects Hans Goedicke's reference to a text from early Dynasty 18 recording a great and unusual storm event. Instead, he plumps for an Exodus shortly before the Amarna period - seeing parallels between the god of Moses and that of Akhenaten. The theory involves the demise of one of the sons of Amenhotep III – otherwise unrecorded. He also makes the decision that the goddess Sekhmet rose in popularity in the reign of Amenhotep III and claims this is proof that Thera erupted at that point in time. ...
192. Baal-Manzer The Tyrian: A Reappraisal [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... ]. We do not know how long after her departure Carthage was actually founded and Josephus's conclusion that it was founded in the year of her flight is clearly his own conjecture. What are the implications of all this for the revised chronology? Donovan Courville and the late Bronson Feldman have both suggested that the Abimilki king of Tyre in the Amarna letters was Pygmalion . They cite the phonetic similarity and Feldman adds a suggestion that the name was an intentional sarcasm derived from the Greek pygmaion, from which the word pygmy' is derived. Peter James, responding to Feldman's article , rejected the equation primarily on the basis of the Baal-Manzer' of Shalmaneser's ...
193. Ishtar, Isis, Baal and the Aten [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... This would be entirely consistent with texts which originated in separate and essentially independent kingdoms. Note also Sir Alan Gardiner's very neat single sentence summary on p. 237 of his Egypt of the Pharaohs, where he wrote: There is no doubt that Tutankhamun and his advisers did their utmost to propitiate angry heaven'. It seems clear that the Amarna experiment ended in a disastrous climatic upset, as is also indicated by the Ninsianna tablet record. Similar things were also happening in Palestine, as when Elisha commissioned Jehu to eliminate the seed of Ahab (II Kings: Chap. 9, vv. 1-7: Chap. 10, vv. 11, 17 & 28). The ...
194. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Exodus took place not, as orthodoxy has it, at some point during the New Kingdom, but at the fall of the Middle Kingdom. He identifies the Hyksos with the Biblical Amalekites, the Biblical Queen of Sheba with the Egyptian queen Hatshepsut, the Biblical Shishak king of Egypt with Pharaoh Thutmose III, and claims that the Egyptian Amarna letters from the late 18th Dynasty describe events from the kingdoms of Israel and Judah, roughly the time of King Ahab. Critique. Several criticisms could be levelled at Velikovsky's work. His view that the Hittite Empire is simply an invention of modern historians, and that the supposedly Hittite archaeological remains in modern Turkey are actually Chaldean (i ...
195. Ages In Chaos. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... materials, down to the most minute details. My chronological scheme revealed to me that King Ahab of Samaria and King Jehoshaphat of Jerusalem must have been contemporaries of Amenhotep III and of Akhnaton, the great heretic. These two pharaohs exchanged letters with the princes of Rezenu and Syria; a collection of these letters was discovered in 1887 in el Amarna in Egypt. In fact, in one of his letters to the pharaoh the king of Jerusalem almost repeated his biblical prayer, and his generals, mentioned in the Scriptures, signed their letters with the names by which we know them from the Bible: lahzibada, Ben Zuchru, Adaia. And Ahab left no fewer than sixty-five letters ...
196. The Blind Seer. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... . Oldfather. 9 Journal of Egyptian Archaeology, XI (1925), 227-29. 10 Pendlebury, Tell el-Amarna, p. 44-45. The name Tell el-Amarna is a composite invented by the early archaeologists of the site; it was derived from the names of two bedouin tribes whose settlements were on the soil covering the ruins of Akhet-Aton, Amarna and Till or Tel. The latter contributed to some confusion, since Tell el-Amarna sounds as though there is a tell, or mound, but there is none. ...
197. Society News. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... subject as before. Janek's previous talk was about his conclusions from a study of alignments that the Earth recently had a 90-degree obliquity. This time he made his introduction a suggestion that he would probably confuse us and then covered so much ground that I am afraid he succeeded in parts. His starting theme, that the Exodus occurred during the Amarna period, immediately gave way to the possibility that the Exodus was an account of the same catastrophe as the Flood. There were many parallels between the two and much of the supposed Continued from p. 56 historical time between them could have been could have been a creation. Janek discussed the changes in numbers of days in the year ...
198. Osarsiph [Journals] [Kronos]
... places the events in the same general time - the late ninth or eighth centuries B.C . One other historical event may have influenced Manetho's tale the Assyrian occupation of Egypt. The foreigners coming from Asia and ruining the country have some resemblance to the Assyrian overlords whose destructive acts are so graphically described in the cuneiform texts. Like the Amarna kings, the Assyrian overlords were expunged from official history, but they lived on in popular legend. REFERENCES 1. This is a view expressed by Velikovsky in his as yet unpublished manuscript The Assyrian Conquest. For Osorkon's inscription, see R. Caminos, The Chronicle of Prince Osorkon, Analecta Orientalia 37 (1958). 2. ...
199. Sethosis: the Seti II from the Kinglists? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of chariots. I am personally convinced that Sethos and Armais were indeed 8th-century - rulers something Clapham will surely underline. The statement of Herodotus that nine hundred years had elapsed since Moeris had ruled Egypt has often been used as an argument against Velikovsky's revised chronology. If we are to accept that Moeris = Amenhotep III (Nimmuria of the El Amarna Letters(9 )) then he lived circa 1350 BC, almost according to the conventional chronology. If Herodotus is correct in his calculations(10) then how do the conventionalists explain his remark that the retreat of Sabacos took place 700 years before his time? Here we see an example of classical evidence being used in defence of ...
