... which allowed for some modest revision which he thought would nevertheless resolve all major obstacles faced both by the orthodox scheme and by the revisionists. Starting off with the simple conviction that the NC could not be right because it allows too little time for the Third Intermediate Period in Egypt and that it could never come to terms with the Assyrian and Babylonian chronologies (these convictions have been recently expressed more precisely by Phillip in Workshop [2 ]) , he naturally was very suspicious about any of our deduced synchronisms. One of these is undoubtedly my own equation of the term habiru in the el-Amarna Letters with the appellation ibrim in I Samuel [3 ]. As I shall re-state below ...

... and earth; historical evidence back to 1062 B.C . contradicted the suggestion that the length of the day had changed appreciably. Velikovsky was wrong about the chemical constitution of comets, and wrong in drawing an analogy between the structure of the solar system and that of an atom. Contrary to Velikovsky, the planet Venus was known to Babylonian astronomers as early as the third millennium B.C . Velikovsky had misquoted the Bible, ascribed to Hesiod a passage from Ovid, and erred in characterizing scientists as "guarding the sacred Laws of Nature' against assault. .. .

233. Who Were the Neo-Assyrian Kings? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... V Reigned 6 Years. Campaigned in the direction of Egypt. SARGON II Reigned 17 years. Was a usurper on the throne and was not a son of the preceding king. Was a great conqueror and defeated a major insurrection in Babylon, led by Merodach Baladan. SENNACHERIB Reigned 22 years. Defeated major insurrections in Babylon and suppressed the Babylonian deities in favour of Ashur, who was elevated to the position of supreme god. Was murdered in a palace conspiracy involving two or three of his sons. ESARHADDON Reigned 12 years. Had to suppress rebellions in Egypt involving princes with names like Necho and Psamtek. ASHURBANIPAL Reigned 43 years. Faced a major rebellion of vassal states but ...

234. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... highly unlikely that these sources describe accurately or even allude to events that really happened in the fifteenth or eighth and seventh centuries B.C . Velikovsky's use of references to Nergal, the ancient Mesopotamian god of pestilence and the Underworld, presents a different kind of dating problem. The Mesopotamians equated the planet Mars with Nergal. So Velikovsky quotes Babylonian hymns and prayers describing the ferocity and power of Nergal as evidence of the catastrophes and resulting terror caused by the close approaches of the planet Mars in the eighth and seventh centuries B. C. (42) But Nergal was originally a Sumerian deity borrowed by the later Babylonians and Assyrians. His fierce character as god of pestilence and ...

... could claim that the observations prove the validity of his theories. At a guess, the realisation of Ptolemy's fraud destroys half of what we have been accepting as Greek astronomy". Now the point that is important to SIS is that Ptolemy's forgery may have extended to inventing the length of reigns of Babylon kings. Since much modern reconstruction of Babylonian chronology has been based on a list of kings that Ptolemy used to pinpoint the dates of alleged Babylonian observations, all relevant chronology must now be reviewed and all dependence upon Ptolemy's king list must be removed. I myself do not know to what extent Ptolemy's list is used to date Babylonian and other kings so perhaps one of the members ...

... 7. Iron Age IIC and the Persian Period James et al. have already made a strong case for reducing the dates of Strata III and II at Lachish [48]. The result of this revision is that the last phase of the Iron Age, Iron IIC, extends well down into the Persian period instead of ending with the Babylonian invasions of 587/86BC. Evidence in favour of this adjustment is coming to light from various quarters but here I will focus on one only [49].

... and he hadn't even started on the second half - so we are promised a run down on the number symbolism used by Manetho and the Egyptians at a later date. Meanwhile, chronologists take a close look at the numbers you have used in your constructions! After lunch Chris Walker of the British Museum passed round copies of lengthy Assyrian and Babylonian King lists. The orthodox chronology for Mesopotamia had been produced from these. The lists themselves had been compiled from cuneiform texts, including economic texts and teaching texts. It was suggested that cuneiform symbols had been developed to handle bureaucracy, with several hundred signs grouped in categories, all of which students had to learn by rote, and ...

... , pp. 59ff.). Point # 10: The authenticity of Hebrew history and Hebrew writing long before the time of Samuel gains considerable credence from the recent finds at Ebla in Syria (e .g . Science News, 8/21/76, pp. 117-118). Point #11: Your statement that "the Babylonians left clear records of Venus five thousand years ago, behaving just as it does now" is dead wrong. In addition to W in C, "Venus Moves Irregularly", see Pensee III (Winter, 1973), pp. 18-22 (" Babylonian Observations of Venus" by Prof. Lynn E. Rose); also ...

... offers unto God, as well as they did other things devoted to him; for they made use of these cities as a treasury, whence, at a proper time, they were transmitted to Jerusalem; and many ten thousand men undertook the carriage of those donations, out of fear of the ravages of the Parthians, to whom the Babylonians were then subject. Now there were two men, Asineus and Anileus, of the city Neerda by birth, and brethren to one another. They were destitute of a father, and their mother put them to learn the art of weaving curtains, it not being esteemed ,disgrace among them for men to be weavers of cloth. ...

... was so oriented, too (J . Needham). See also the Section, "Tao", in W. in C. The persisting order of the world and solar motions were watched with the help of the obelisks, for which we have the testimony of Pliny (W . in C, p. 320). The Babylonian and Greek astronomies were oriented primarily toward east and west, or to the rising and setting points of the sun at equinoxes and solstices; therefore the Babylonian stargazers, as a multitude of cuneiform texts witness, carefully watched whether the equinoctial days arrived on time and whether any change occurred in the horizon positions of sunrising points on the winter ...
