201. Venus in Ancient Myth and Language [Journals] [Aeon]
... argued that the cult of the celebrated Mother Goddess can hardly be separated from the recent history of the planet Venus. It is a curious fact, one little noticed by the scholarly community as a whole, that the vast majority of the world's great goddesses were identified with the planet Venus. This is the case with the Sumerian Inanna, Babylonian Ishtar, Canaanite Astarte, Egyptian Isis, and Greek Aphrodite, for example. (1 ) Following the lead of Immanuel Velikovsky, who, in Worlds in Collision, proposed that the planet Venus had recently assumed a comet-like orbit, Talbott and I attempted to reconstruct the history of this most unusual "comet." (2 ) ...
202. Twists of Time [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents LETTERS Twists of Time Bob Porter Replying to Geoff Barnard's letter in C&CR 2001:1 p. 73, I am partly in agreement but more explanation is required. Geoff questioned how the New Chronology could down-date Egyptian, Hittite and Babylonian chronology by c.350 years at the times of Ramesses II, Hattusilis III and their Babylonian contemporaries Kadashman Turgu and Kadshman Enlil II (the Amarna period and the whole of Late Bronze II are, of course, similarly downdated), whereas in an earlier period the First Dynasty of Babylon was only down-dated by 227 years (based ...
203. The Battle Of Kadesh-carchemish. Ch. 1. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... From "Ramses II and his Time" © 1978 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Chapter 1 The Battle Of Kadesh-carchemish Who Was Pharaoh Necho, the Adversary of Nebuchadnezzar? The Assyrian Empire tottered and fell. Despite the aid of Egypt, the Babylonians and the Medes captured Nineveh and burned it. In the ensuing years they were busy dividing Assyria. In-608 the king of Egypt moved toward the Euphrates (II Kings 23:29), marching with his troops on the military road that ran along the coast. When he came to Megiddo Pass he found his way obstructed by Josiah, the king of Jerusalem. The king of Egypt sent emissaries ...
204. The Celestial Ship of North Vol. I [Books]
... , Venus has been found bearded, the original Apollo was bi-sexual, Horus is given in both sexes, Osiris and Isis are found to interchange. In the vision of St. John in the Book of Revelation is found the Logos, now connected with Jesus Hermaphrodite, and portrayed with female breasts. Jehovah was originally female. On a Babylonian tablet Venus is depicted as a male at sunrise and a female at sunset. To the Peruvians Venus was a morning star called "The Youth with the Curling Locks." Philo tells us that Astarte placed on her head a Bull's horn as a symbol of her lordship or male-female nature. In Sanscrit writings it was said that the ...
205. The Might that was Assyria (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... , $29.95 U.S .) at long last fulfills the need for a readable English survey of ancient Assyrian history and society. The author's enthusiasm for the subject, as communicated in the preface, is also refreshing. Saggs notes that uniquely Assyrian accomplishments are glossed over in historical and cultural surveys that deal with Sumerians and Babylonians. While the Assyrians certainly clothed themselves in Sumerian and Babylonian tradition, they also wore vestments of their own design, a fact this book makes very clear. The author begins his survey with an outline of geography and climate. He compares and contrasts Assyrian with Sumerian geography, noting each area's overall unity, in spite of obvious diversity ...
206. Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt by Lynn E. Rose [Journals] [Aeon]
... or "feasts" as they seem to have been called- were often regulated by the Moon, usually dating the first of each month by noting the first invisibility of the old crescent just before sunrise. Since the monthly excursion of the Moon takes about 291/2 days, the months varied between 29 and 30 days. The ancient Babylonians knew that 235 synodical months (29.530589 days) would equal 19 standard years of 3651/4 days- veritably within two hours precision of the actual event. The Egyptian 365-day calendar would be commensurate with 309 synodical months, or 25 years, with but an hour difference over that time span. Rose goes to great lengths ...
207. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... points at right angles to the Moon's path that forces can build up sufficiently to cause any damage. Normally, the Earth's crust is quite rigid enough to resist the lunar forces, but if there happens to be a weakness in the crust, an earthquake might result. Moreover, the pull of the Moon is inwards towards itself. The Babylonian event is, at least, consistent with the movement which might be expected if the Moon was indeed the cause. The Egyptian event, on the other hand, has the movement in the wrong direction. It could not have been caused by the Moon. If we assume an external object, it was a visitor from space. ...
208. Preface to the War of the Jews [Books]
... getting money. I thought it therefore an absurd thing to see the truth falsified in affairs of such great consequence, and to take no notice of it; but to suffer those Greeks and Romans that were not in the wars to be ignorant of these things, and to read either flatteries or fictions, while the Parthians, and the Babylonians, and the remotest Arabians, and those of our nation beyond Euphrates, with the Adiabeni, by my means, knew accurately both whence the war begun, what miseries it brought upon us, and after what manner it ended. 3. It is true, these writers have the confidence to call their accounts histories; wherein yet ...
209. When Venus Was A Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... art, the most important for our purpose are those which represent this fabulous beast as an enclosure. As we demonstrated in our first article on the subject, this is a widespread Old World motif. There we stated: "The point we wish to stress here is that all of the serpent dragons cited as cometary phenomena by Velikovsky (Babylonian Tiamat, Egyptian Set, Norse Midgard, etc.) act in precisely the same manner: Their body comes to form the great god's celestial dwelling. And, as we have seen, it was precisely this celestial dwelling which was commemorated by the Aten sign; thus it is significant to find that Egyptian hieroglyphs frequently depict the band ...
210. Apollo and the Planet Mars [Journals] [Aeon]
... Asakku. (19) That Nergal also bore an astral identification-as the planet Mars-has long been known; thus Jastrow summarizes the ancient conception of Nergal as follows: "The various names assigned to him, almost without exception, emphasize the forbidding phase of his nature, and the myths associated with him deal with destruction, pestilence, and deathIn Babylonian astrology, he is identified with the planet Mars, and the omen-literature shows that Mars in ancient days, as still at the present time, was regarded as the planet unlucky above all others." (20) That the same planetary association would appear to characterize Reseph in several Ugaritic texts has only recently been discovered. Thus, ...
