91. Stephen J. Gould And Immanuel Velikovsky: Essays In The Continuing Velikovsky Affair [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... not being employed by a university at the time. They did not, apparently, have all the qualifications appropriate to an "expert," at least in the relevant fields. Rather different criteria were employed in the selection of those who actually took part in the discussion. Thus Peter Huber, a mathematical statistician whose "hobby" was Babylonian cuneiform, was selected to contest Velikovsky's inferences from Babylonian astronomical, complaining of the documents. As well as Huber, there was Carl Sagan, the well-known astronomer, scientific use to which his conclusions might be put, and suggesting a mistake in his calculations. Bailey populariser, TV personality, and scourge of Velikovsky and all his works ...
92. The Crescent [Books]
... planet Saturn, hold in his hands a weapon called SAR-UR-U-SAR-GAZ, and also BAB-BA-NU-IL-LA. The first name of Ninurta's weapon means "who governs the Cosmos and who massacres the Cosmos," while the second name means "hurricane which spares nothing." The astonishing fact is this: these names of Saturn's weapon are the very epithets of the Babylonian Sin, the crescent "Moon." (2 ) That is, the crescent of Sin is the "weapon" (sickle, sword) with which Saturn founded and destroyed the primeval order. But there is another peculiarity also: though always identified by scholars as the lunar sphere, Sin is never presented as a "half-moon ...
93. The Cosmic Mountain [Books]
... The signs of the Saturnian mountain are and . Throughout the world one encounters the story of a shining peak which once rose to the centre of heaven. Though this cosmic mountain appears under many different names, accounts from every section of the world tell much the same story. The Egyptians knew the great column as the Primeval Hill, the Babylonians as the World Mountain. The mount passed into Hinduism as the cosmic Meru, into Iranian myth as Hera-Berezaiti, and into Chinese myth and astrology as Kwen-Lun. Mexican cosmology gave it the name Colhuacan. Its most familiar representatives were Olympus and Zion. But does not Olympus refer to the well-known peak in Macedonia, and Zion to the ...
94. When Earth Was Not Yet Created: An Account of Sumerian Cosmogony [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of a long epic poem publicly read at the climax of the annual New Year Festival. The tale (or information) related in this epic has been traced to Sumer, the first recognized civilization, which began in Mesopotamia nearly 6000 years ago. But the full text of the epic is known from its version in the Akkadian (" Babylonian") language. In the manner of the ancient custom it was named Enuma elish after its opening words: Enuma elish la nabu shamamu When in the heights Heaven had not been named Shaplitu ammatum shuma la zakrat And below, firm ground (Earth) had not been called The text,2 well known to scholars as the " ...
95. On "The Year -687": A Postscript (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Whatever else may have transpired on that day has to be determined from other sources. Jan N. Sammer 1. Storia Generale della Cina, ovvero Grandi Annali Cinesi, tradotti dal Tong-Kien-Kang-Mou dal padre Giuseppe-Anna-Maria de Moyriac de Mailla, Gesuita Francese Missionario in Pekin , Vol. III, p. 60 (Siena, 1777). MAYAN AND BABYLONIAN OBSERVATIONS OF VENUS To the Editor of KRONOS: While discussing the Venus Table in the Dresden Codex, Anthony Aveni (The Skywatchers of Ancient Mexico, 1980, p. 187) remarks: "It is puzzling that the 90-day interval in the table is so different from the true disappearance interval (about 50 days) and that the ...

... , a girdling of sackcloth; for their beauty shall be destroyed." [1 ] Judaean noblewomen against the likes of whom the prophets riled. (Illustration by Andreas Müller.) The next quotation is from the Book of Jeremiah, a prophet who lived in the later 7th and earlier 6th centuries BCE, a time which included the Babylonian exile and the destruction of the First Temple. "[ God speaks:] Can a maid forget her ornaments or a bride her attire? Yet my people have forgotten me days without number. Why do you deck yourself to induce love? For behold you have also learned evil by means of this conduct. Also on your hands ...
97. Effects of Atmospheric Dust on the Arcus Visionis [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. III No. 4 (Summer 1978) Home | Issue Contents Effects of Atmospheric Dust on the Arcus Visionis Bruce S. Maccabee In Vol. II, No. 2 of KRONOS, Rose and Vaughan(1 ) presented a rather detailed analysis of Babylonian observations of the "appearances" and "disappearances" of the planet Venus. The intent of their paper was to demonstrate that differences between the Babylonian measurements of the invisibility periods of Venus and comparable modern measurements might indicate that the orbits of Venus and Earth were perturbed in some way after the Babylonian measurements were made (or possibly during the period of the Babylonian observations). In their analysis ...
... FROM BABEL The only incidents mentioned in Scripture for the period between the Flood and the migration of Abraham into Canaan are related to the Dispersion from Babel coincident with the confusion of tongues. (Footnote 1: Gen. 11.) These accounts are commonly scouted by scholars as presenting only a later adaptation of a supposedly earlier legendary account of Babylonian origin. A translation of the Babylonian inscription in question is provided by Sayce and reads in part: (Footnote 2: S-RP (old series), Vol. VII, pp. 131, 132.)'... Babylon corruptly to sin went and small and great mingled on the mound .. . Their (work ...

... that Venus' orbit was quite different in the past. Currently, as Venus travels along its orbit, it disappears behind the Sun (superior conjunction) for about 60 days. It also disappears from naked eye vision when it passes in front of the Sun (inferior conjunction) for about eight days. Livio C. Stecchini discusses ancient Babylonian records of the disappearance of Venus stating, "the Venus tablets of [Babylonian king] Ammizaduga [is] the most striking document of early Babylonian astronomy. These tablets, of which we possess several copies of different origin, report the dates of the hehacal rising (appearances) and setting (disappearances) of the planet Venus during ...

... been slain once and only once, any cyclic interpretation of the myths becomes untenable.(16) Are not Attis, Osiris, and Adonis all identifiable as personifications of Saturn?(17) Should not Baal, therefore, also be so identified? But let us not leave it at that. 2. Belus/Bel To the Babylonians, Baal was known as Bel. Of this god, George Rawlinson wrote: " . . . he represents also, as the second god of the first triad, the classical Jupiter. He is the supreme', the father of the gods', the procreator', the Lord', par excellence, the king of ...
