11. Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period [Journals] [Aeon]
... the Achaemenian Empire and Babylonia (Mesopotamia) seems to have left surprisingly insignificant impact on the latter. The flowering created by the contacts of Babylonia with Hellenism and the Parthian civilization respectively stands in unmistakable contrast to the sterility and lack of interaction which seems to characterize the Achaemenian presence in Babylonia. (A .L . Oppenheim, "The Babylonian Evidence of the Achaemenian Rule in Mesopotamia," in The Cambridge History of Iran, Volume I [Cambridge, 1985], pp. 530-595.) It should be clear from the foregoing that the evidence for Persian rule of Babylonia (Mesopotamia) from 539 to 465 presents major problems and that a reconstruction of the political history of ...
12. Old World Maps -- A Response to Charles Ginenthal [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ,000 (about $1 ,000,000 now) prize for one. The winning chronometer was selected in 1762. On land, however, a skillful and patient astronomer could use the Moon as a clock to determine longitude. A concomitant mapping problem was the length of one degree. Researchers into ancient history have shown that the Babylonians correctly measured the length of one degree of longitude millennium before the chronometer was invented. (4 ) THE ANCIENT CENTER OF LONGITUDE Hapgood illustrates many old maps. The World Map of Ptolemy has its 90 longitude line through the eastern tip of the Arabian peninsula. (5 ) Ninety degrees west of this line is the present 38 west ...
13. Sothic Dating: the Shameless Enterprise [Journals] [SIS Review]
... in support. There is therefore not the least doubt that, from about 473 onwards, the Sothic hypothesis is not really a hypothesis but simply the truth. '  Porten's work This argument builds upon a study by Bezalel Porten . Porten proposed placements of a number of double-dated Aramaic documents. He assumed that the Babylonian' calendar in the documents was the official Babylonian/Persian lunar calendar. His Egyptian date conversions follow the Censorinus calendar. Subject to a few uncertainties, the Neo-Babylonian calendar is well understood through the efforts of Parker and Dubberstein . During the Persian period, this lunar calendar was kept in synchronisation with the sun by the ...
14. A Critical Re-appraisal of the Book of Genesis, Part Two [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Egyptian elements are traceable to the same extent and with the same frequency throughout the entire Pentateuch as they are in Genesis [8 ]. But What of the Akkadian Influence? One of the main reasons why modern Biblical scholars cling to the theory that the Book of Genesis, in the main, was written around the period of the Babylonian Exile [9 ], hundreds of years after Moses' death, is because parts of the book contain clear Assyrian and Babylonian elements. Assyriologists have rightly concluded that some parts of Genesis must have originated in a period when the Israelites (or Hebrews) were connected closely with Mesopotamia. As is well known, according to the Bible ...
15. Chapter 8 Mesopotamia and Ghost Empires [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... lists. They, too, indicated that civilization in the Fertile Crescent was exceedingly long, especially that presented by a priest-scholar named Berosus. "Berosus, a Chaldean priest and a contemporary of Manetho, tried to prove to the Greeks under the Seleucid rulers [who as foreigners dominated his homeland] the [great] antiquity of Assyro- Babylonian history and therefore he extended that history into tens of thousands of years."1 Also as with Egypt, there are a number of these lists which have come to light. Therefore, the early foundation of Mesopotamian chronology was built on the same kinds of evidence as that of ancient Egypt. That is, the foundation of that ...
16. The Ninsianna tablets, a preliminary reconstruction [Journals] [SIS Review]
... % expansion of the orbit of the Earth which was initiated about 882 BC and which was complete by about 729 BC. In the course of this expansion, Venus pushed the Earth out towards Mars, causing the Earth to start pushing against Mars. The reality of the one time 360 day year is confirmed but this was a count of Babylonian days per Babylonian year, any change in the absolute spin rate of the Earth being minimal. A secondary outcome of the analysis is a major disruption of the orthodox system of precessional dating, permitting synchronisation of the Phaeton and the Exodus episodes, together with the somewhat unexpected finding that Stonehenge can be added to the world list of ancient ...
... Chapter XXXVII The Egyptian and Babylonian Ecliptic Constellations I HAVE already in Chapter 32 pointed out that at Anna we seemed limited to Set as a stellar divinity; so soon as pyramid times are reached, however, this was changed, and we found the list of the gods increased, and the worship of the sun and of stars in the constellations of the Bull and Scorpion went on, if it was not begun, in Egypt, in pyramid tunes. These constellations were connected with the equinoxes; and associated with the introduction of these new worships in pyramid times was the worship of the bull Apis. The first question which now arises is. When were any ecliptic constellations ...
18. "Just Plainly Wrong": A Critique of Peter Huber (Second Installment) [Journals] [Kronos]
... on page 111, in order to show that the similarity is "borne out by the more elaborate representations", I presented the photograph of the cylinder seal impression that was cited by Huber. This second and concluding installment of my paper, dealing primarily with the Ninsianna observations (sometimes mistakenly assigned to the reign of Ammizaduga in the First Babylonian Dynasty), is based both on the mimeographed version and on the published version of Huber's paper. The pages of the mimeographed version run from 1 to 37, and the pages of the published version run from 117 to 144; thus the reader can determine from the numbers themselves whether I am referring to the mimeographed version or to ...
19. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... Hi, with Jesuit assistance. The early native titles seem to have been arbitrarily applied to single stars or small groups, with no apparent stellar signification. 6. The term " Euphratean " is used throughout these pages in a general way for the material lately discovered in the Euphrates Valley, the source of which, Sumerian, Akkadian, Babylonian, Chaldaean, or Assyrian-is as yet largely undetermined. The references to this material I have taken bodily from the works of Hommel, Sayce, Strassmaier and Epping, Jensen, and Robert Brown, Junior. 7. This great work is designed to include all stars down to the 7th magnitude in that portion of the sphere within 100o ...
20. A New Interpretation of the Assyrian King List [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... any method by which a reduction in the time-span of Assyrian chronology might be undertaken. Any possible reduction for Mesopotamian chronology as a whole, and ultimately for Egyptian chronology, therefore, would appear unlikely (see below). However, let us ask if in fact we can view the AKL on some other basis; perhaps, like the Babylonian King List (hereafter BKL), the AKL may conceal a degree of parallelism between certain monarchs. For Babylon we now know that the first Sealand dynasty was contemporaneous with the early years of the Kassite dynasty and that in turn the early years of both these dynasties were contemporaneous with the last years of the Amorite dynasty. Yet a ...
