181. 'Worlds in Collision' After Heinsohn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Solar System; when the planet was next seen, after a period of invisibility, it had rings. In the aftermath Jupiter collected much of the dispersed material and, rotating ever more swiftly, underwent fission'. The Deluge event itself he finds stripped of planetary associations in Genesis but associated with planetary figures in the Egyptian Osiris, the Babylonian Tammuz and the Greek Cronos . He associates the appearance of Saturn in rings during a period of Jovian dominance of the sky with such myths as the Egyptian story (from Old Kingdom Pyramid Worlds in CollisionTexts and other sources) of Isis gathering the body parts of the deceased Osiris in funerary swathing and the Greek story ( ...
182. Heracles as Cross-Dresser [Journals] [Aeon]
... the rite was that of a Sacred Marriage." [8 ] Support for this conjecture comes from Mesopotamia, where Gilgamesh- an acknowledged parallel to Heracles- was likewise associated with sacred marriage rites. [9 ] A prominent episode in The Gilgamesh Epic, in fact, finds the hero making a bed for Inanna. In the Old Babylonian version of this epic, Gilgamesh is expressly linked to a sacred marriage with Ishara, an apparent doublet of Inanna/Ishtar: "In Uruk offerings were (brought) continually, the lads purified themselves. A hero has been set up (for the fight); for the lad of the perfect features, for Gilgames, as ...
183. Velikovsky, Solomon, strata [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... then I will certainly look at such calculations with fresh interest and appreciation. While not specifically agreeing with Rose on his proposed dates, I do think he's moving in the right direction. From: email@example.com (Clark Whelton) Date: Fri, 21 May 1999 090652 -0400 Ev wrote: In fact, portions of Old Babylonian Babylon have been excavated, far beneath the stratum Heinsohn and Whelton would identify with that of Hammurabi. Clark writes: This is an important point. Ev says a stratum "far beneath" the layer Gunnar Heinsohn identifies as Persian period (i .e . the first pre-Hellenistic (or pre-Parthian) stratum) has been excavated. Perhaps ...
184. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... I wrote in C&CR 1997:2 (pp. 30-31) that Pharaoh Necho had been on his way to attack Assyria when he encountered and slew King Josiah of Judah at Megiddo (II Kings 23:29-30, II Chronicles 35:20-24). It seems more probable that Necho's intention was to assist the Assyrians against the Babylonians (his Dynasty having had earlier Assyrian support), despite what is actually written in II Kings, an aim which would probably not have been approved by Josiah [cf. 1]. Josiah was essentially orthodox and looks to have been somewhat stubborn and old-fashioned, despite his comparative youth (39 at death); he could well ...
185. Astronomical Dating and Calendrics [Journals] [Aeon]
... " chronology do not differ very much from the dates used up to the 19th century when Abraham was still openly exhibited as the ultimate chronological anchor point. How were the Abrahamic dates kept without keeping Abraham as a historical figure? This was done through Hammurabi, the lawgiver of the powerful yet still mysterious Martu/Amorites of the so-called Old Babylonian period: "The date of Hammurabi is the keystone of the chronology of the second and third millennia BC." (7 ) His approximate date, however, derives from the contact between Abraham and Amraphel as described in Genesis 14:1 . For a long time, Assyriologists had equated Amraphel with Hammurabi whose date, therefore, ...
186. A Critique of "Ramses II and His Time" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Assyrians and the Egyptians. Otherwise there is a world of difference between the reigns of these two kings, as there is between the Hittite and Chaldaean Empires. The burden of proof rests with Velikovsky to demonstrate the identity of the two Empires by a systematic comparison of the evidence, and the few parallels he offers are unconvincing. The Babylonian Chronicle for the reign of Nabopolassar begins with years 1 to 3 (not mentioned by Velikovsky), during which time his authority extended over a very small area of Babylonia, centred on Babylon itself. Nabopolassar was a rebel against the Assyrian crown (not the heir to an Anatolian Empire), which in 625 BC still held military ...
187. Father Kugler's Falling Star [Journals] [Kronos]
... prevented by his health from taking up the life of an active priest, he turned his back on his original field of study to carry out research into the history of the ancient East. In Exaten he had been introduced by the astronomer Fr J. Epping and the cuneiform specialist J.N . Strassmaier to the many unsolved questions in Babylonian astronomy, and this gave him the impetus to continue their pioneering work, laying a solid scholarly foundation for studies in this area whilst at the same time teaching mathematics at the Ignatiuskolleg in Valkenburg, Holland. Kugler mastered by his own efforts both the principles of astronomy and the difficulties of reading the original cuneiform texts, and established a ...
188. Appendices (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... the river of Chebar, their appearance and themselves: they went every one straight forward. The first myth of the Book of Ezekiel gives a general description of that great cosmic phenomenon, the former satellite, as it appeared to the original observer when he watched it from the `river of Chebar', or `Kebar', in Babylonian literally , the `Great River 1.78 Not an artificial arm or canal of the Euphrates is meant by this expression, but the girdle-tide (i . 3; x. 22). Ezek. i.4 tells that this phenomenon appeared in the `north' and moved with great swiftness; but we are probably right ...
189. Astral Kingship [Journals] [Aeon]
... 539 BC, he was welcomed with open arms and hailed as legitimate ruler by the populace within. This political achievement was due, in no small part, to the fact that Cyrus quickly paid thoughtful homage to the great god of Babylon- Marduk. "Not as a conqueror or liberator did Cyrus intend to claim the loyalty of his Babylonian subjects but rather by giving his kingship constitutional grounds and establishing himself as benefactor of Marduk, the chief deity of Babylon." (1 ) Cyrus repaired Esagila, the temple of Marduk, gave daily care to Marduk's worship, and prefixed "King of Babylon" to his other titles only after receiving the symbolic approval of Marduk. ...
190. Venus: A Battle Star? [Journals] [Horus]
... and to the appropriate times for warfare. Examples of this common belief are found in ancient Babylonia, in the period of the Han dynasty in China, and in Mesoamerica just prior to the Spanish Conquest. Whatever the source, these beliefs have been echoed by cultures half a world apart and separated in time by many centuries. Venus in Babylonian Beliefs One of the most ancient documents yet discovered concerning the planet Venus is the so-called Venus Table K. 160, which came from Assurbanipal's library in Nineveh. This table is a list of the movements of Venus and its expected influence on human affairs. As can be seen in the following English version [based on a German translation ...
