171. Comets, Polular Culture, and the Birth of Modern Cosmology [Journals] [Aeon]
... ) Home | Issue Contents Comets, Polular Culture, and the Birth of Modern Cosmology by Sara Genuth (Princeton, 1997) Reviewed by Ev Cochrane Few things in life are as memorable and charged with unconscious emotion as the appearance of a brilliant comet. From time immemorial, comets have inspired dread and been associated with ominous portents. Ancient Babylonian astronomical texts link comets to the death of kings and other calamities. Similar views were common among the Greeks and Romans. Of a comet that appeared during Nero's reign, Tacitus wrote as follows: "A comet blazed into view- in the opinion of the crowd, an apparition boding change to monarchies. Hence, as though Nero ...
172. The Pyramid Age, by Emmet J Sweeney (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... read as a chronological sequence of sole rulers of all Egypt. These factors in turn misled subsequent scholars into adopting the very long conventional chronology. (d ) A belief that Heinsohn is correct in his early claims that (i ) Sargon of Akkad ruled at the time of Sargon II and (ii) that the late Neo Assyrians and Babylonians are alter-egos of the Persian rulers. Thus Sargon II is an alter-ego of Darius I (The Great). B. The Revision Herodotus as we know quotes Egyptian early history largely as it was told him by Egyptian priests. He was in no position to query what he was told, nor to ask what happened to the Assyrian ...
173. A Reviewer At The Stake. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... hoax to my own wife as a sign of esteem. The reviewer next made the accusation: "The index [of the author] does not refer to Schoch, Kugler or Fotheringham- the three greatest authorities on ancient chronology and astronomy." With indignation he told how these savants demonstrated that 2,000 years before the present era the Babylonians could calculate the sun's apparent motion more exactly than the scientists of Europe until about 1850 (more than 100 years after Newton). He concluded: "This was .. . quite impossible if the sun's apparent motion had recently altered." And he bluntly concluded that the author had not read Fotheringham. It happens that the index ...
174. Martian Meteorites in Ancient Myth and Modern Science [Journals] [Aeon]
... the least of which was a great flood of water descending from the sky. (47) Following Velikovsky's lead- but also modifying and elaborating upon his conclusions and chronology- I have confirmed that the ancients described Mars as being much closer in recent times, close enough, in fact, to dominate the skies. (48) Various Babylonian omens, for example, associate Mars with prodigious eclipses of the Sun. Consider the following omen: "If the Sun goes down (by a Darkness/Eclipse) and Mars stands in its place, there will be an Usurpator." (49) As a result of such reports, Gossman concluded that "Mars [was ...
175. The Ship of Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... was a ship. (4 ) It is generally agreed that Ovid is correct in saying that this ship of Saturn is that which appears on the reverse of coins stamped with the double face of Janus. (5 ) The latter god, Saturn's acknowledged alter ego, was remembered as the "inventor" of ships. Figure 3. Babylonian sun god in his cosmic ship Long before the age of Latin poets and historians, however, the Sumerians and Babylonians celebrated the ship of the planet god Saturn. The priests of Lagash knew Saturn as Ningirsu, owner of "the beloved ship," a celestial vehicle "that rises up out of the dam of the deep. ...

... ; or the belly of the cosmic cow Hathor, whose four legs stood firm upon the Earth; or the body of the goddess Nut whom her father Shu held apart from her brother and husband Keb, the Earth, by means of a system of pillars, or, according to another version, a ladder. Esagil, the great Babylonian temple of Marduk- the dragon-killer- was known as the lofty house', and as the house of the foundations of the heavens and the Earth'. Its substructure, the Babylonians boasted, was built broad upon the threshold of the nether world; its top reached the vault of heaven. The number of pillars is generally limited to four ...

178. The Celestial Ship of North Vol II [Books]
... . The constellation Kepheus was called the Shepherd and his Sheep and was the Shepherd King of the heavenly flock. This constellation rose when the Sun passed through the sign Cancer when he became the Shepherd of this domain. Cancer was an early symbol of fire, and capricorn its opposite sign in the Zodiac was a symbol of water. The Babylonians had "Shepherding Stars" for their celestial flock. Anu, who was their god, selected certain stars as "Measuring Stars, Regulators, or Period Stars." They were Seven, the crossing stars of the mid-heaven. In a very ancient royal tomb of the Twentieth Dynasty a calendar of astronomical observations was found, and these ...
179. Alalakh and the Collon Affair [Journals] [Aeon]
... he claimed they do and/or whether the statements contained in these sources stand up to scrutiny. Besides, as Newgrosh also pointed out, neither Woolley nor Collon dated Alalakh's stratum VII to the Old Akkadian period despite the presence of bull-man seals in the stratum. "Indeed, level VII corresponds more closely to the time of the Old Babylonian dynasty (Hammurabi and successors)"- although this does not mean that the stratum in question is Old Babylonian.  This, in itself, is enough to tumble Heinsohn's revision as per his own reconstruction. As Newgrosh pointed out: "Conventional history allows for the Old Babylonians and Hyksos to be either contemporaries or near-contemporaries ...

... As long as- HUBER: But there is something else. For some other eclipses it is mentioned that the eclipse happened in the province. The inference is that this particular eclipse happened at the capitol. And to make precise, what I mean is, if you take the probably most reliable eclipse we have now from antiquity, it's Babylonian eclipse of - 135 [astronomical; 136 B.C . historical], and use this to determine the- VELIKOVSKY: Which eclipse? HUBER: Babylonian eclipse, -135. We only learned about it last December. [laughter] It's very definite, description of a total eclipse, with all the details. If you take ...
