111. Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VI:1 (Jan 1984) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Binomial Coefficients, Permutations and Combinations in Elam and Babylon George R. Douglas, Jr.No adequate support is found for a concept that Babylonians, Elamites, and others of ancient times possessed any knowledge of binomialism, whether of binomial expansion,(1 ) generally thought to have been generalized by Sir Isaac Newton, or binomial coefficients,(2 ) generally thought to be expressed by Blaise Pascal and known by Arabs and the Chinese at least as late as A.D . 1303;(3 ) or of the study of permutations and combinations. While no hard data ...
... , Jensen, by his wonderful analysis (would that I could completely follow it in its marvellous philological twistings, pages 73-81) puts beyond question; and he clinches the argument by showing that our "tropic of Capricorn" of to-day- the goat still represented on our globes of to-day with a fish's tail!- was called by the Babylonians "the path followed by Ía " or in relation to Ía. This Ía was such a great god that to him was assigned the functions of Maker of Men; he was also a great potter and art workman (p . 293), a point I shall return to presently. He eventually formed a triad with Anu and ...
113. Introduction - Ages in Chaos? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , and possibly around 1250BC during the reign of Ramesses II, who is known to have built a city called Pi-Ramesse in the Delta region. The early history of Palestine had to fit the chronology established for Egypt . As for the ancient civilisations further east, classical writers were aware of the Assyrians in northern Mesopotamia and the Babylonians in the south. In similar fashion to Manetho, the Babylonian priest, Berossus, wrote a history of his country in Greek but only fragments of this have survived. In the 2nd century AD, the Greek scholar, Claudius Ptolemy, recorded a list, with reign-lengths, of the kings of Babylon from Alexander the Great, who ...

This is the first time this article has been made readily available since it was first published in 1910 . In this article, the word "ama" should display as "Samas", but with a caron accent above each letter s'. If not, you should update your browser. For more provocative articles on why the ...
115. Mars Moves The Earth From Its Pivot, Part 2 Mars Ch.2 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... A four-planet system was known to Chaldean astronomy, in which Venus was absent but Mars was present. There does not exist, at least in the extant material, any mention of the first appearance of Mars, whereas expressions referring to the birth of the planet Venus have been found in literary sources of the peoples of both hemispheres. The Babylonian name of the planet Mars is Nergal.1 This name is referred to in early times, many centuries prior to the eighth century. But it was in that latter century that this planet became a most important deity. Many prayers to it were composed. "Radiant abode, that beams over the land . . . who is ...

... be little doubt as to the correctness of his general thesis which has very specific applicability for the archaeology of Palestine's Post-Exilic Period. In dealing with Lachish, James clearly shows the mistaken basis for attributing the inscribed ostraca (potsherds) found in Lachish Level II to the time of Jeremiah. The excavator had initially believed that Level II represented the Babylonian period and the epigrapher Harry Torczyner took this as a starting point for his analysis. Accordingly, he compared the names of the ostraca with the time and book of Jeremiah. Over the years most of his early readings have been corrected or abandoned. However, Level II and the ostraca continue to be dated to the time of Jeremiah ...
117. The Origins of the Latin God Mars [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in the Old Testament [II Kings 17:30]. The chief god of Kutha, a city near Babylon, Nergal's cult can be traced throughout the wide range of Akkadian influence, from Mari to Babylon to Sumer . The god's cult can be found in the earliest times of Sumer and remained strong even in late Babylonian and Persian times, a period spanning some three thousand years . In the past century a wealth of evidence has come to light regarding the nature of this god. Nergal was first and foremost a god of war. As was the case with the Latin Mars and Greek Ares, the name Nergal was frequently employed as ...
118. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Weges," i.e . "my way." These depend of course on what form the original may have taken, and this would appear to require more evidence before a definite decision can be made. "Adamu" recalls a deity name at Mari and may be related to a toponyrn mentioned in an Old Babylonian itinerary.  3. Janqua 4. Sahlamu These two names are separated from the GHD couplet: Ya-am-qu-us-su-ha-lam-ma. Little more can be adduced except that perhaps the reading "su-ha-lam-ma" helped decide the value of KIT as first read. 5. Harharu 6. Mandaru Both these names appear to be tribal geographical ...
119. Jupiter -- God of Abraham (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... finds some confirmation in the fact that legend connects Abram with the building of the Tower of Babel in the valley of Shinar,(7 ) which is assumed by most scholars to be the land of Sumer (later Babylonia).(8 ) Abram is also connected by legend with Nimrod,(9 ) a name that is purely Babylonian.(10) Cyrus Gordon, on the other hand, has argued that Abram's domicile was a different Ur, northwest of Babylonia, and that it was called "of the Chaldees" in order to differentiate it from the Sumerian city.(11) The geography of the land and Abram's later route into Canaan makes this a ...
120. Stairway to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... ancient myth encodes astronomical information of one form or another, how do we establish that point in cultures which did not make a habit of identifying the gods with celestial bodies? Here the comparative method is our surest guide. Although the ancient Egyptians did not have a well-developed astronomy identifying their various gods with planets, their neighbors did. The Babylonians, and to some extent the Sumerians before them, did identify their leading gods with planets. That the Sumerian goddess Inanna was early on identified with the planet Venus is commonly acknowledged by scholars, [4 ] as is the identification of the war-god Nergal with the planet Mars. [5 ] Insofar as the Egyptian gods bear resemblance ...
