151. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... Akkadian Ishtar among others were identified with the planet Venus. (35) It is significant that Isis shared numerous characteristics in common with these Near Eastern Venus-goddesses. One of Isis' most prominent functions, as is well-known, was as a goddess of lamentation. (36) The same function is shared by Ishtar-Venus, who in an early Babylonian hymn is invoked as the "star of lamentation". (37) One of Isis' most common epithets, "Queen of Heaven", while otherwise unknown in the traditions surrounding Sirius, finds a close parallel in the terminology associated with Venus, the latter body being known as the "Queen of Heaven" throughout the ancient ...
152. Forum: Did Jews Fabricate Their History Between 500 and 1099AD? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... developments among the German branch of the Velikovskian movement. Fiddling with Jewish history In Jewish cultural and religious history, the period between the early 7th century and the middle of the 11th century (~ 600 to ~1000AD) is generally known as the Gaonic period of Judaism. During these four centuries, the intellectual and spiritual leaders of the Babylonian Talmud academies in Pumbedita and Sura (see box for the chronology of Gaonim) edited and codified the Talmud, wrote thousands of responsa' and participated in the debates among the Jewish communities that existed all over the Middle East [8 , 9]. Many of these Gaonic texts and documents are well preserved and have been published in ...
153. An Authority Called To Witness. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... From "Stargazers and Gravediggers" © 1983 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents An Authority Called To Witness THE LEARNED PRIEST Franz Xaver Kugler believed for most of his life that the Babylonian astronomical texts from before c. -750 are void of scientific value because their figures and dates are at great variance with the true movements of planetary bodies; thus he assumed that they must have been of legendary character. In this he differed from several authors, like J.K . Fotheringham, who regarded these text as historical. Kugler was therefore called upon, as the highest authority in his field, by Otto Neugebauer to disprove my discourse on world catastrophes caused by ...
154. Letter to the Editor from Christoph Marx [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:2 (Jun 1980) Home | Issue Contents Letter to the Editor Christoph Marx Editor, C&AH: During a course on Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology1 I took a closer look at this fact: that most of the chronologies around the Mars catastrophes have been linked to the date of 15/6 /763 B.C ., the day of a solar eclipse mentioned in the eponym lists. These again have been linked to Greek and Roman chronology by way of the Ptolemaic Canon of Babylonian kings, "the correctness of .which is proved by the lunar eclipses mentioned in the Almagest,"2 and through the Babylonian ...
155. A Chronological Note on the Kassites [Journals] [Aeon]
... in its infancy and there was no means of dating the small objects that come Out of graves; the state of knowledge at that time is shown by the fact that when I asked expert opinion as to the date of things we had found, I was told that since they lay fairly close to the surface, they must be late Babylonian, about 700 B.C ., whereas in truth they were Sargonid [today used as designation for Assyria's kings from 721 to 612 BCE] and dated to about 2300 B.C .( 12) The Kassites, to sum up, exhibit architectural features stretched over some 1,500 years with a blank of some 700 ...
156. Aphrodite - The Moon or Venus? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Greeks from two separate personifications of the same planet. The key to this apparent enigma is readily available if we remember that, to the observer, Venus appears as two planets, not one, in its aspects of morning and evening stars. III. THIS EXPLANATION finds ample confirmation in examples drawn from comparative mythology. Ishtar, the Babylonian goddess of Venus, had two distinct aspects and she was unique for this amongst her fellow deities. Speaking of the Babylonian pantheon one scholar wrote: "Ishtar alone stands out, because of the dichotomy of her nature, associated with the planet Venus (as morning and evening star) and with divine qualities extremely difficult to characterise. ...
157. The Sibylline Oracles [Books]
... side. Further, it must be remembered that the Jews were not the first to utilize the Sibyl in this way. One may doubt whether the ErythrŠan Sibyl herself, with her claim to be older than Homer,29 and to have supplied the material from which he plagiarized the Iliad and Odyssey, was entirely above suspicion. And the Babylonian Sibyl, Sabbe or Sambethe, on whose work part of our Book III. is based, was certainly a creature of literary artifice.30 Her author (who came to be known as her father) was Berosus, a priest of Bel; he desired (exactly like any Alexandrian Jew) to show that his own people and ...
158. Experiments with Time. I: 'Catastrophes and Chronologies' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ) Home | Issue Contents Experiments with Time. I: Catastrophes and Chronologies'by Geoffrey Knowler Barnard Summary An alternative chronology - the Absolute Cchronology' for the ancient Middle East is presented and its consequences for a number of well known problems examined. These include the Dark Age of Greece, the Ashuruballit problem', the enigma of the Babylonian Painted Palace and the Egyptian Third Intermediate Period'. Further aspects will be considered in Part II of the article. Introduction Stated in simple terms, the problem of chronological revision is to find the level of reduction required to the Conventional Chronology of Egypt which provides the best fit with the available archaeological evidence. This does not mean that ...
159. Review: The Gentile Times Reconsidered: Chronology and Christ's Return, by Carl Olof Jonsson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 22, 23; Ezra 1: 1-4) According to the Watch Tower Society this ended the seventy-year period mentioned at Jeremiah 25:11, 12; 29: 10; Daniel 9:2 , and 2 Chronicles 36:21. If, as the Society maintains, the Jewish remnant returned to Jerusalem in 537BCE, the period of Babylonian domination would have begun seventy years earlier, or in 607BCE. And since the Watch Tower Society holds this seventy-year period to be a period of complete desolation of Judah and Jerusalem, we are told that it was in the year 607BCE that Nebuchadnezzar destroyed Jerusalem, in his eighteenth regnal year (2 Kings 25:8 ; Jeremiah 52 ...
160. Sword-Time, Wolf-Time, Part 2 Mars Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... had to hurry if he would escape calamity;6 as we know, he did not escape it. At the same time Isaiah, who encouraged Hezekiah to resist Sennacherib, reckoned with the possibility of a disaster in the year of the opposition of Mars, and thus built his hope on the intervention of the forces of nature. The Babylonians called the year of the close opposition of Mars "the year of the fire-god," and the month "the month of descent of the fire-god," as, for instance, in an inscription of Sargon.7 In The Birth of the War-God, the Hindu poet Kalidasa gives a vivid picture of the wars above and on ...
