121. The Two Sargons and Their Successors (PART ONE) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Asshur which Shalmaneser taxed was dedicated to the god Asshur for whom it was named. To this, one can retort that in the Assyrian version of the Epic of Creation, the role of Marduk is taken over by Asshur. (15) The objection against this is that it would have been natural for the Assyrians to replace the national Babylonian god Marduk with their own Asshur, and that this does not necessarily equate one god with the other. The fact is, however, that back in Sumerian antiquity, Marduk was known by the name of Asshur. Marduk's original title was Asaru. (16) if we are to judge by the name of his city, Asshur ...
122. The Female Star [Journals] [Aeon]
... credence, for it implies that primitive cultures around the world were aware of the 260-day appearance interval of Venus and noticed its near-synchronism with the human gestation period. Yet there is no evidence whatsoever for this claim and plenty against it. While the 260 day period of Venus was certainly known to the Maya and was likely known to the ancient Babylonians of the first millennium BCE, it can hardly be believed that the Australian Aborigines or the Siberian Yakut, both of whom regarded Venus as female, were aware of this period. The logical difficulties evident in these explanations underscore the fact that it is difficult to discern anything in the present appearance of Venus that would justify this persistent and ...
123. Shamash and Sin [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... item is correct in maintaining that the symbol was used by a wide variety of people way before the foundation of Islam' and is usually interpreted as representing Ishtar and Sin', who are normally identified as Venus and the Moon'. In parenthesis it is then added that: "Dwardu Cardona has pointed out that a common entry in Babylonian astrological reports was when Shamash stands in the halo of Sin' but for Cardona, Shamash is Saturn." It is then asked, Is Sin even the Moon? '. An astute question - but first, and this is important, it is not for Cardona' that Shamash is Saturn'. Shamash is, or was ...
124. Cyrus The Mardian/amardian Dethroner Of The -6th Century Medes And Aziru The Martu/amurru (Amorite) Dethroner Of The -14th Century Mitanni [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the dates of Bible and Iliad was not yet on the minds of authors. Since biblical dates were simply higher than the Greek ones, the latter had to give way to a much longer chronology. Nevertheless, the Jewish historians of the Persian and Hellenistic periods had already made a tremendous step towards a reasonable chronology, by boldly cutting fantastic Babylonian and Egyptian time spans of nearly 400,000 years down to some 4,000 years. Yet, this time span still was three times as long as the one adopted by Herodotus. The Jewish writers had reduced phony time spans down to one-hundredth. Still, the Greek dates cut the biblical dates further down to ca. one-third ...
125. The Stormer Of The Walls, Part 2 Mars Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Stormer Of The Walls Following the upheavals in which, in the words of the Babylonians, Mars-Negal "moved the earth off its hinges," and, in the words of Isaiah, "the earth moved exceedingly" and was "removed out of her place," mighty and repeated earthquakes devastated whole countries, destroyed cities, and shattered the walls of strongholds. "Bloodstained stormer of walls" is the ever repeated epithet of Ares in Homer. Hesiod, too, calls Ares "sacker of towns."1 "Behold," said Amos, "the Lord commandeth ...
126. The Mystery Of The Pleiades [Journals] [Kronos]
... opposition to the above criticism, Sieff paid much more attention "to the testimony of other ancient peoples," but, obviously, he did not dig deep enough. Had Sieff, for instance, identified Khima, through its popular interpretation as Pleiades, with Mars, he would at least have been able to cite the testimony of the Babylonians and the Hindus as evidence in favor of the identification.(14) We would have refuted this identification also but, at least, the source of the misidentification could then have been placed at the ancients' own door. As they stand, Sieff's suppositions can only be bolstered by dim allusions which are somewhat illusory by their very ...
127. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , Palmer bases his attempted refutation of Gunnar Heinsohn's shorter chronology for Mesopotamia on a misunderstanding of Heinsohn's work. Dr. Heinsohn has never identified the Neo-Assyrians as Persian. He identifies the Neo-Assyrians as Assyrians of the Persian period, with their Persian overlords portrayed in Assyrian garb and using Assyrian throne names. Similarly, Heinsohn holds that Neo-Babylonians and Old Babylonians are Babylonians of the Persian period, with the Persian overlords portrayed in Babylonian garb and using Babylonian throne names. It is not surprising, therefore, that Assyrians, Babylonians and Persians might have worn their beards differently. Heinsohn sometimes uses the following analogy. After being defeated by a coalition of Medes Scythians and Chaldeans, the Assyrians continued ...
128. Pul and Tiglath-Pileser III - A Response to Jonsson [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... and Sardanapalus has no bearing whatsoever on the separate existence of Pul. The basic thesis of the non-identity of Pul and Tiglath-Pileser (which is not original to me) still stands. Jonsson [2 ] has three arguments against this: 1. The two years that Tiglath-Pileser reigned over Babylon (his last two years) are attributed by the Babylonian King List A to Pul. 2. Tiglath-Pileser records the receipt of tribute from Menahem, while the Bible says he paid tribute to Pul. 3. The clear evidence of I Chronicles 5:26, which mentions Pul and Tiglath-Pileser as separate individuals, can and should be seen as supporting their identity. The biblical chronology of the ...
... SOME VANQUISHED MONSTER'S BODY Let us first look at a number of myths which tell of the slaying of some primeval monster, out of whose body its vanquisher shaped the new Earth. Such myths are not peculiar to any people, but they seem to presuppose both a higher reasoning capacity and a livelier imagination. The classical example is the marvellous Babylonian myth of Marduk's fight with the dragon-monster Ti„mat, as related on the tablets of Assurbanipal's library. Originally that female monster seems to have been a very trustworthy being, so much so that even the tables of destiny', according to which the Earth and the heavens were ruled, were entrusted to her keeping. She misused her power ...
130. The Comet Venus, Part 1 Venus Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... was more of a comet than a planet, and was called a "smoking star" or a comet by the Mexicans. They also called it by the name of Tzontemocque, or "the mane."(61) The Arabs called Ishtar (Venus) by the name Zebbaj or "one with hair," as did the Babylonians.(62) "Sometimes there are hairs attached to the planets," wrote Pliny;(63) an old description of Venus must have served as a basis for his assertion. But hair or coma is a characteristic of comets, and in fact "comet" is derived from the Greek word for "hair." ...
