101. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... four directions. Similarly, the Kalmucks of Siberia describe a primordial sea of life and fertility, with four rivers flowing "toward the four different points of the compass." (8 ) The tradition is repeated by many other nations. The Mandaeans of Iraq enumerate four great rivers flowing from the north. (9 ) Just as the Babylonians recalled "the land of the four rivers," (10) the Egyptians knew "Four Niles," flowing to the four quarters. (11) The home of the Greek goddess Calypso, in the "navel of the sea," possessed a central fountain sending forth "four streams, flowing each in opposite directions. ...
102. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:2 (May 2005) Home | Issue Contents Letters Dear Reader Emmet Sweeney is one of many people who have realised that if the chronology of Egypt is to be revised then that of the Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians may need to be revised too. He has in many ways developed his revision of these chronologies in a far more detailed way than most of the rival revisions, but that does not necessarily make his version correct. For instance, it is not clear how those kings of Israel recorded in the Assyrian inscriptions as having paid tribute to Assyrian kings could have done so if the dates of these kings are revised ...
103. Probable Visibilities of Venus at the Time of the Supposed Spin Rate Acceleration of the Earth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... conjunction, 236 days visibility as morning star, 90 days invisibility at superior conjunction and 250 days visibility as evening star. (2 ) A. F. Aveni, in his Skywatchers of Ancient Mexico (University of Texas Press, 1980), has the following footnote (p .327): "It is curious that that the Babylonians also counted a three month disappearance interval .. ." (quoted by Aveni from A. Pannekoek, A History of Astronomy (London, 1969), p. 33). (3 ) A portion of the Babylonian "Ninsianna" (or "Ammizaduga") tablets, frequently referred to as "the artificial insertion" ...
104. Are The Venus Tablets Missing?, Atwater Thrown Overboard. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... , and priestly astrologers undoubtedly observed Venus generations before. The records are discussed by Langdon and Fotheringham in The Venus Tablets of Ammizaduga.... Dr. Velikovsky refers to these tablets in a footnote but does not indicate their content. In fact, systematic observations of Venus are at least as old as 3000 B.C . Ancient Babylonians and Egyptian watchers of the skies saw the planet exactly as we see it. Kaempffert ended his article with angry words about a theory that requires the rewriting of every textbook on astronomy, biology, geology, cultural anthropology, and ancient history. If not for the years that must have been needed to collate the hundreds of citations and ...
105. Introduction (In the Beginning: God) [Books]
... strength of such considerations the great majority of flood myths, for instance, were declared to be merely trumped up reports of local inundations which were not contemporaneous with the biblical deluge. Only a very small number were, admitted to be accounts of water catastrophes on a larger scale and even these were mostly only regarded as parallel versions of the Babylonian myth, preserved in the great Gilgamesh epic (Note 2). Even scientists of note, like the Austrian geologist, Suess, could not liberate themselves from this view. This leads us on to the second problem. On closer investigation it was established apparently without doubt, that the BabyIonian cosmogonic myth was infinitely older' than the ...
106. The Sun Of Night [Journals] [Kronos]
... by the Greeks .. . they [the Chaldeans] call the star of Helius."(18) Helius (or Helios), as almost everybody knows, is the name by which the Greeks called the Sun. Strictly speaking, this was not exactly an error on the part of Diodorus for, to the Chaldeans and Assyro Babylonians, as we shall see, Shamash was a name which they bestowed on both the Sun and the planet Saturn. This confusion of Saturn with the Sun did not originate due to the ignorance of the ancient astronomers. It was due to those later ones who were born too late to see that Saturn was once indeed a sun. ...
107. The Poem of Erra [Journals] [Aeon]
... the carefully chosen imagery. Difficult as it is to accept, the clear meaning of the poem is that the heavens were disturbed and the planet-gods rearranged during Erra's assault. The cataclysmic nature of Erra's assault finds ample proof in the imagery of the poem. To make our case it is necessary to review a few of the basic elements of Babylonian cosmology. To the ancient Mesopotamians, for example, heaven was compared to a bull led by a nose-rope. (14) In accordance with this conception, the rulership of heaven could be symbolized by the king of the gods holding the nose-rope of heaven (serretum). In the Poem of Erra, it is related that Erra ...
108. The Pentagram of Venus [Journals] [Horus]
... by 144.48 degrees, the fifth being 2.4 degrees from the starting point, as shown by the dotted lines in Figure 1: each successive period of eight years forms another pentagram rotated 2.4 degrees. The pentagram was the secret symbol of the Pythagoreans, and provides a basis for linking Egyptian, Greek, and Babylonian mythology and astronomy. Conjunctions of other planets also define geometric figures, such as the Trigon of Great Conjunctions or Jupiter and Saturn (Figure 2). Figure 1 - Pentagramma Veneris Figure 2 - The Trigon of Great Conjunctions In round numbers, the conjunctions occur every 20 years, a Trigon (triangle) is formed in 60 years ...
109. Assyro-Babylonian Chronology In the 620's B.C. [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to that of Assur-etillu-ilani and that is impossible in view of the grant of land. However, a dating of Sin-shar-ishkun's Babylonia accession to 627 seems to better agree with the available evidences. His Assyrian accession can seemingly only belong to the Year 623- and I herewith express my appreciative thanks to Carl Olof Jonsson for suggesting the idea of a Babylonian and then some years later an Assyrian accession for Sin-shar-ishkun. Acceptance of the year 626/25, rather than the more generally accepted 627/26, as the variently called "Year with no king-Year 22 of Kandalanu- Year of Sin-shum-lishir and Sin-shar-ishkun" allows ample time for Sin-shum-lishir to have placed Assur-etillu-ilani on the Assyrian throne ...
110. The Great Kingship of the Medes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... Assyrian title (indeed titles) are well-known, and that he initially called himself Ashuruballit (as long as he remained loyal to Suppiluliumas), but later changed the name to Ashurnasirpal. An Assyrian Great King named Tukulti-Ninurta, last of the so-called Middle Assyrian rulers, was murdered in a palace conspiracy by one of his own sons. The Babylonian Chronicle gives us the name of the parricide: Ashurnasirpal. (6 ) According to conventional ideas, this was the first king of that name to rule in Assyria, though five centuries later Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 27 another Ashurnasirpal, who was also a son of a king Tukulti-Ninurta, launched a great age of Assyrian ...
