... the kingdom of the north was destroyed forever, and the people, one and all, were carried away into exile. (45) The heathen nations settled in Samaria by the Assyrians instead of the deported Ten Tribes were forced by God to accept the true religion of the Jews. Nevertheless they continued to worship their olden idols: the Babylonians paid devotion to a hen, the people of Cuthah to a cock, those of Hamath to a ram, the dog and the ass were the gods of the Avvites, and the mule and the horse the gods of the Sepharvites. (46) HEZEKIAH While the northern kingdom was rapidly descending into the pit of destruction, a ...

242. The Polar Sun [Books]
... Moreover, writes Boll, this practice of "correcting" the name Helios to Kronos was not uncommon among later copyists. (11) Originally, Boll concludes, Helios and Saturn were "one and the same god." (12) The equation of sun and Saturn is very old, with roots in Sumero-Babylonian astronomy. Of the Babylonian star-worshippers the chronicler Diodorus writes: "To the one we call Saturn they give a special name, Sun-Star. '" (13) Among the Babylonians the "sun" -god par excellence was Shamash, the "light of the gods," whom scholars uniformly identify with the solar orb. But M. Jastrow, in ...

... , as early as about 1700 BC, but can be shown on linguistic and other grounds to have originated by about 2300 BC. Any of the surviving Akkadian myths, on the other hand, are known primarily from Neo-Assyrian tablets recovered from the library of Ashurbanipal in seventh-century BC Nineveh, but can be shown to go back to the Old Babylonian era before the middle of the second millennium BC. Some contain still earlier material'. Albright agrees, and makes the substantiating statement [7 ]: Almost all important Assyro-Babylonian myths were put into substantially the form which they kept until the end of Accadian civilization during the second half of the third millennium BC, under the dynasties of ...

... of the twelve months of thirty days each, to complete the year; for these days no additional apertures are provided . . . . This arrangement seems to indicate that the idea of the apertures is olde r than the rectification of the calendar which added the five Gatha days to an original year of 360 days."12 The old Babylonian year was composed of 360 days.13 The astronomical tablets from the period antedating the Neo-Babylonian Empire compute the year at so many days, without mention of additional days. That the ancient Babylonian year had only 360 days wa s known before the cuneiform script was deciphered: Ctesias wrote that the walls of Babylon were 360 furlongs in compass ...

... in Palestinian towns in layers of debris below (sometimes far below) the remains representing the Iron Age II (the time Velikovsky claims the pottery was in use), but not in the strata from the era when the pottery was supposedly made? It was on similar evidence that I stated that the Hyksos Period was contemporaneous with the First Babylonian Dynasty (Hammurabi and his successors). Hyksos objects are found in Middle Bronze Age II contexts in Palestine, while the MB II material also has close connections with Mesopotamian artifacts belonging to the First Babylonian Dynasty. The reasoning is simple: A=B and B=C , therefore, A=C . It follows that the ...

The final one (called Abraham), whose wife was called Sarah, seems to have arrived in Canaan aged 75 in 1534BC; he seems to have been the one who, according to some other detailed traditions, defeated the five kings in the last year of Babylonian king Amraphel (Hamurabbi 1522BC) Tony Rees, Lowton, Warrington The Temple Cleansing Event of Hezekiah This event occurred in year 1 of Hezekiah [1 ], his first year as sole regent in my opinion. The conventional scheme (e .g . Thiele and others), places this event in an era when the political milieu ...

... quite impressed with the astronomical connotations of it and it's possibly that part of it that tells us that Velikovsky was half on the right track. But when it gets down to the nitty-gritty, the details, it becomes a kind of wishy-washy framework to interpret. I am fairly confident that there is a lot of very valuable information in the Babylonian records which, once one's got the picture, one might well be able to firm up and if any of you are really interested in this line, I really see that as the most profitable opening. There is one very peculiar feature of the astronomical records there, the so-called Babylonian astrolabes. These are kind of protractors where they ...

Lynn Rose: Astronomy and Planetary Motions'. The ultimate criterion for choosing a theory, said Rose, is simplicity. With Raymond C Vaughan, Rose worked on Babylonian astronomical tablets to find what orbits of Venus and Earth could generate the observations. 0.1 is the approximate orbital eccentricity of Earth, with Venus almost in its present orbit. Earth's present eccentricity is about six times less. Rose does not think anything much smaller than Mars could have changed Earth's eccentricity to that degree. He regretted ...

... it came all the germs of all created things and it was the origin of everything. (46) Baudissin supposed the word "mot" to connote water. (47) Maspero likewise stated that " probably a Phoenician form of a word which means water in the Semitic language." (48) The Babylonians told the story differently but they, too, held that creation commenced out of the waters. Consider the Enuma Elish : When on high the heaven had not been named- Firm ground below had not been called by name- There was naught but primordial Apsu, their begetter- And mother Tiamat, who bore them all- Their ...
