71. Finding the Limits of Chronological Revision [Journals] [SIS Review]
... criticisms offered by John Day in the Society's Newsletter 2 that spurred some members to embark on a rigorous examination of evidence for and against Velikovsky's revision of ancient history [3 ]. Even in the earliest responses, defence of Velikovsky was not unqualified. Martin Sieff and Peter James agreed with Day that there were problems with Velikovsky's treatment of the Amarna letters, especially his identification of Abdi-Heba with the Bible's King Jehoshaphat [4 ]. In a Special Issue of the SIS Review devoted entirely to Ages in Chaos, they took their arguments further. Martin Sieff argued against Velikovsky's proposal for extending the reign of Ahab [5 ]. Peter James recommended lowering Velikovsky's date for the Amarna correspondence ...
72. Review: Act of God, by Graham Phillips [Journals] [SIS Review]
... clouds. With their natural predators wiped out, millions of defenceless tadpoles survived to become frogs, which subsequently swarmed over roads and invaded houses in parts of Washington State. The debate over dating Thera is thoroughly discussed. Phillips concludes from scientific and archaeological evidence that a date of c. 1360BC fits well into both the biblical Exodus and Egyptian Amarna periods. Seabed survey evidence suggests that an elongated cloud of ash would have covered most of Egypt, leaving the land of Goshen, i.e . the eastern Delta and Avaris, unaffected. Thus the Hebrew God had saved the Israelites. They would have seen the great black cloud drift southwards over the rest of Egypt. What ...
73. Society News [Journals] [SIS Review]
... with Tony Chavasse and Bob Porter arguing the case for their own revisions and others contributing to a lively, informative and extended debate. Eric opened the meeting by explaining his Black Hole' (see article, p. 25). In his studies, he had initially followed Velikovsky's chronology, which he largely supported. From studies of the Amarna letters, and assuming the Sumur of the letters is Samaria, he concluded this was built in 850BC and fell in 711BC, so the Amarna letters date from this era. Since the Ashuruballit mentioned was conventionally dated much earlier than 711BC, he tried to resolve this problem by turning to Luckenbill. He listed out every Assyrian and Babylonian ...
74. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... mu, psi, etc) is a Greek version of Egyptian Ramesses plus S3 Nt (= son of Neith) which was a Late Period royal title (ref. A. Lloyd, Herodotus Book II Commentary 99-182, Leiden, 1988 p. 52). Lasken's question concerning Tony Rees' breaking of the link between Assuruballit and the Amarna Period is justified. I do not know what Tony had in mind but I note that Peter James in Centuries of Darkness (p . 340) strongly hints that the Assuruballit of the Assyrian King List and the Assyrian royal inscriptions is not the Assuruballit of the Amarna Letters. Breaking this link, unreasonable though it seems without further evidence ...
75. The Great Kingship of the Medes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... actually about one decade before) that the later kings were trying to recreate. In the pages to follow we shall see how the parricide son of Tushratta/Tukulti-Ninurta helped to smash the power of the Mitannian state and then, under the names of Ashuruballit and Ashurnasirpal, sought to rebuild what he had previously worked to destroy. From the Amarna Letters and other sources we learn that from fairly humble beginnings Ashuruballit I rose to be a mighty ruler, who waged war against the Hittite Empire, and installed kings on the throne of Babylon. He was said to have reinstated Assyria as a world power, and he assumed the title Great King. His big chance, we are ...

... of Kadesh) and Hattusilis III (with whom he signed a treaty in year 21 and whose daughter he married in his year 34).(6 ) Both Hittite kings were sons of Mursilis II and grandsons of Suppiluliumas I, author of el-Amarna letter No. 41. The latter's annals record his campaigns against Tusratta of Mitanni (another Amarna correspondent) while his son, Murtsilits II, referred to Aziru of Amurru (whom Velikovsky identified as the Biblical Hazael of Damascus) as a vassal of Suppiluliumas in his treaty with one of Aziru's successors.(7 ) Peter James has already drawn attention to the problems inherent in Velikovsky's attempt to prove that the Suppiluliumats of the Amarna ...
77. The Chronology of the Late Kings of Egypt [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . If further reason for rejection were needed, it was only necessary to point to the obvious' impossibility of satisfactorily condensing the subsequent history of Egypt by an amount of time equal to the proposed abbreviation of the earlier chronology. The magnitude of the problem involved in such a condensation was most apparent in terms of the necessary redating of the Amarna Period, currently dated 1360-1340 B.C ., but necessarily redated to c. 860-840 B.C ., the proposed correction at this point amounting to a full 500 years. A Search for Further Evidence in Support of Velikovsky In the closing pages of Ages in Chaos,11it was promised that a further volume would be forthcoming ...
78. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... somehow ejects energetic "bullets" (see arrow) of high-energy particles. Could a feature similar to this account for the co-linear nature of the proposed Saturn-Venus-Mars-Earth system? The summer has seen two notable conferences, (1 ) Intersect 2001: "Electricity, Cosmology and Human History", in Nevada and organised by Kronia (2 ) The Amarna Heresies in Reading organised by ISIS and the Sussex Egyptology Society. Both conferences are fully reported in this issue, which is a third larger than usual, to accommodate all the material. Intersect 2001 I was fortunate enough to attend the Intersect 2001 conference myself for which I thank my wife, Caroline, who practically ignored my excuses, ...
79. Akhetaten - Horizon of the Aten [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... as a deliberate move away from any existing power-base. It also would have appealed on religious grounds as a break in the cliff wall to the east allows the rising sun to shine through the gap in a physical manifestation of one of the central images of Atenist religion. Boundary stelae were set up in Akhenaten's year 4, decorated with typical Amarna artwork. 15 of these have so far been found. The city was then constructed in haste, with a definite time frame in mind. Akhenaten's intention was that as Egypt's new capital it would endure for many years, but in actuality it was occupied through Smenkhkare's brief reign until (probably) the second year of Tutankhamun. After ...
80. Shishak - Ramesses II or Ramesses III? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 10]. The next candidate was Ramesses II, nicknamed Sesysu (possibly imperfectly transliterated into Shishak), who only required a three and a half century reduction. This idea was proposed by Rohl and James  and subsequently amplified by Rohl  and apparently further corroborated by a series of attractive identifications between characters in the Amarna Letters with those of the early Israelite monarchy period including Kings Saul and David . However, James no longer supports Ramesses II as Shishak and has moved to Ramesses III, nicknamed Sesi, who only requires a two and a half century reduction . Obviously, it is easier to remove two and a half ...
