... is that the dates themselves have already been considerably lowered once it has been recognised from archaeological evidence that certain dynasties which were thought originally to have come in sequence, were in fact to a large extent parallel, and one is thinking of the period after the dynasty of Akkad, Sargon, in which it was discovered that the early first Babylonian dynasty and also the late first Babylonian dynasty and the Kassites were very largely contemporary. That has already produced a lowering of dates of something like 300 years or so, compared with what was accepted 50 or 60 years ago. The other thing is that even with this lowering of dates there are definite archaeological dark ages. Right through ...

222. Ra as Saturn [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... the heaven at night. Saturn was chosen - in preference even to the moon - because of the slowness of its movement, which made it visible continuously for a long period."(26) Jastrow went on to state that the light of the Moon, as well as of the planets and the stars, was, by the Babylonians, ascribed to Saturn.(27) But would the Babylonians, who could calculate the complex motions of the heavenly bodies with mathematical accuracy, have been so naive as to invent a concept in which even the most ignorant of their peasantry could hardly have believed? What we see, here, again, is an attempt by mythologists ...

223. Thales: The First Astronomer [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... . The same kind of interpretation, I submit, needs to be made of the famous "eclipse prediction." Since Herodotus' account of the eclipse states only that Thales predicted the year of it, not the date, the time of day, or the place of visibility, some scholars have thought that if Thales were acquainted with Babylonian methods of predicting eclipses, they would have sufficed for this achievement. The tablets on which these Babylonian observations and methods are to be found, however, are all subject to Heinsohnian downdating of Mesopotamian chronology in general, and as Peiser has pointed out, they can no longer be assumed to have predated Thales.19His position, as ...

224. Samson Revealed [Journals] [Aeon]
... As the astronomer Cecilia Payne-Gaposchkin observed: "By the validity of this statement the edifice will stand or fall." (16) Kirk's assessment of this thesis was less kind: "This remarkable and improbable conclusion is presented in language that is mystical and apocalyptic as much as vague and dogmatic" (17) The fact that the ancient Babylonians- the greatest astronomers of antiquity- apparently remained ignorant of the phenomenon of precession does not bode well for the thesis of de Santillana and von Dechend. (18) If such is the case, it is most doubtful if a large number of other cultures were aware of it either, yet this is what the thesis of Hamlet's ...

225. Poles Uprooted, Part 2 Mars Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... and therefore the figures are supposed to have been those of Babylonia, borrowed by ancient Chinese, a rather unusual conjecture.14 The length of the longest day in a year depends on the latitude, or the distance from the pole, and is different at different places. Gnomons or sundials can be built with great precision.15 The Babylonian astronomical tablets of the eighth century provide exact data, according to which the longest day at Babylon was equal to 14 hours 24 minutes, whereas the modem determination is 14 hours 10 minutes, and 54 seconds. "The difference between the two figures is too great to be attributable to refraction, which makes the sun still visible over ...

... times. I was a Ph.D . in philosophy who had taught both the history of science and the philosophy of science, including logic and methodology, and who had earlier majored in ancient history and classical languages; I had also worked with Raymond C. Vaughan both on the sequence of planetary orbits in historical times and on the Babylonian observations of Venus, the very subject that Peter Huber would be treating at the Symposium. Such a troika would have done well. The organizers could not afford to let that happen. They had to rig the Symposium, in every way that they could. Otherwise, Velikovsky might have made them look even more foolish than he did ...

227. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... placed no earlier than the first millennium. With Ur and Sumeria in general located 2000 years too early, the other peoples and cultures mentioned on Sumerian documents (which also belonged to the first millennium) were likewise misplaced by 2000 years. The peoples thus duplicated in the third and second millennia were the Akkadians, the Amorites, the Old Babylonians, and of course the Sumerians themselves. The weight of Heinsohn's argument therefore rests on the following identifications. The Sumerians themselves, who should date between c.1500 and c.500 BC are the alter-egos of the Chaldaeans: the Akkadians are simply the alter-egos of the Assyrians: the Amorites are Persians; and the Old Babylonians are ...

228. Chapter 9 Mesopotamian Stratigraphy [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... well. A single fact, if sufficiently substantiated, could ruin the entire structure. An example may usefully illustrate this point. If the Sumerians are indeed the Chaldeans, it follows that Shulgi the greatest king of the so-called neo-Sumerian' period is the same as Nebuchadnezzar, the greatest king of the neo-Babylonian period [not the Old or First Babylonians]. There is nothing arbitrary about this identification; it is a logical deduction from the postulated premises. If any discrepancy between the two men, such as lifespan, length of reign or ancestry, is found and sufficiently established, the scheme proffered by Heinsohn would be disproved."1 1 Jan Sammer, "Reopening the Sumerian ...

... , according to the established chronology, at the end of the second and through the first millennium B.C . There is, in fact, plenty of evidence of the knowledge of iron in Mesopotamia prior to the beginning of the Iron Age.10 For example, Heinsohn equates King Hammurabi, the sixth king of the Old or First Babylonian empire, dated before 1792 to 1750 B.C ., with Darius the Great of the Persian Empire, dated to the first millennium B.C ., a time when steel did exist. On the other hand, Sweeney equates Darius the Great with the Neo-Assyrian king Sargon the Great of the eighth century B.C . ...

... to Ramesses II (seated between two gods) Most of the monuments to be studied lay in south-eastern Anatolia and northern Syria, at sites such as Hamath, Carchemish, Sakçagözü and Zinjirli. The Hittite stone reliefs and other sculpture of this area clearly showed the influence of nearby Mesopotamia, and the relationship of Hittite art to that of the Babylonians and Assyrians was evaluated. A major concern, of course, was the dating of these monuments. While much of the north Syrian art showed unmistakable Neo-Assyrian influence, placing it firmly in the 1st millennium BC, the dating of the monuments at sites on the central Anatolian plateau (such as Alaça Hüyük, Bogazköy and Yazilikaya) was ...
