21. Neo-Babylonians and Achaemenids [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 95 CHAPTER 7 NEO-BABYLONIANS AND ACHAEMENIDS The Babylonian Achaemenids If we are correct in identifying Darius II with Assurbanipal we are obliged to find where his successors fit into the picture. We know that three major Achaemenid kings – Artaxerxes II, Artaxerxes III, and Darius III – followed the second Darius, yet the Neo- Assyrian king-lists apparently end with Ashurbanipal. Only two or three ephemeral monarchs are named after the latter, and their combined reigns cannot have exceeded ten years or so, whereas the length of time between Artaxerxes II and Darius III was roughly seventy years. According ...
22. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... Zedekiah, in the hope that he would be the father of pious sons. In reality the name became the omen of the disasters to happen in the time of this king. Nebuchadnezzar, who invested Zedekiah with the royal office, demanded that he swear fealty to him. Zedekiah was about to swear by his own soul, but the Babylonian king, not satisfied, brought a scroll of the law, and made his Jewish vassal take the oath upon that. (2 ) Nevertheless he did not keep faith with Nebuchadnezzar for long. Nor was this his only treachery toward his suzerain. He had once surprised Nebuchadnezzar in the act of cutting a piece from a living hare ...
23. The "Forgotten Empire". Ch. 4. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... el-Amarna letters, written in cuneiform, refer frequently to Hatti. This period in the conventional chronology covers the time from about-1500 to about-1250. Merneptah, who followed Ramses II, said that Hatti was pacified. Ramses III, supposedly of about-1200 to-1180, wrote that Hatti was already crushed.2 A Babylonian chronicle mentions the Hatti in connection with an invasion of Babylon at the close of the ancient dynasty of Hammurabi, in the seventeenth or sixteenth century before the present era. The Assyrian annals mention the Hatti for the first time in the days of Tiglath-Pileser I, who undertook a campaign against them, supposedly in-1107. These annals ...
24. Rectification of the Assyrian and Babylonian King Lists – A Velikovskian Approach [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:1 (February 2005) Home | Issue Contents Rectification of the Assyrian and Babylonian King Lists – A Velikovskian Approach Michael G. Reade Doubt is cast on the reliability of the Assyrian and Babylonian King Lists and some ideas are presented here towards rectifying them by a consideration of the dating of the Ninsianna Tablet Records and historical records of violent climatic disturbances. Can references to the era of severe climatic disturbances, claimed by Velikovsky for the 900-700 BC era and associated with interactions between Venus, Earth and Mars, be found in the Assyrian and Babylonian records? Unfortunately, there appear to be very few, almost all the known texts ...
25. The Saturn Problem [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . When he lost his throne to the Persians in 539BC, the victors legitimised their conquest by presenting themselves as the restorers of the rites of Marduk. Rivalries between different political centres and their long-established cults may explain many such religious struggles. (Amun and Marduk were the gods of Thebes and Babylon, sites of the most powerful Egyptian and Babylonian temples respectively.) Yet they do not explain why the most powerful gods of these societies were not the most obvious choices, the Sun and Moon, in the first place. Nor do they explain the lack of distinction that the ancients made between the main heavenly bodies: Sun and Moon were usually grouped together with Jupiter, Saturn ...
26. Velikovsky and the Problem of Planetary Identification [Journals] [Aeon]
... basis for his planetary identifications. Here it would appear that Velikovsky used poor judgment in terms of sources. A case in point is Velikovsky's acceptance of the identification of Aphrodite with the Moon. Of all the Greek goddesses it is Aphrodite who is most clearly identifiable with the planet Venus. Thus as Aphrodite Urania the goddess is indistinguishable from the Babylonian Ishtar, who was invoked as the Queen of Heaven and identified with the planet Venus from time immemorial. (6 ) The curious thing is that several of the most prominent Greek planet-lists identify Aphrodite as the goddess of the planet Venus. Why then did Velikovsky accept the more rarely attested lunar identification? The point here is not that ...
27. Did Artaxerxes III Despoil The Temple In Jerusalem? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... here makes the Persians responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem and the deportation of the Jews to Babylon. How, it has been said, could the Jews have forgotten this? They forgot it for a number of reasons, some of which will be examined later. For the moment we should note that the true liberators of the Jews from Babylonian captivity, the Macedonians, later became their most hated enemies. (c ) The evidence presented here is only a small sample of what is contained in Ramessides, Medes and Persians, where various other equations, e.g . Xerxes = Sennacherib and Artaxerxes I = Esarhaddon, are argued in equal detail. The Babylonian Achaemenids The ...
28. Planetary Motions, Egyptian Unit Fractions and the Fibonacci Series [Journals] [Horus]
... period.[2 ] Equation (1 ) may be referred to as a synodic equation and it is an equation comprised of unit fractions. Egyptians were extensively manipulators of unit fractions, fractions which solely possessed a unit numerator, or if not, possessed methods or tables that reduced nonunitary fractions to sets of unit fractions.[3 ] Babylonians used fractions which did not necessarily possess a unit numerator and they also had a reciprocal table.[4 ] Josephus has it that Abraham during his travels to Egypt as is recorded in Genesis brought to Egypt the mathematics of Babylon.[5 ] Fibonacci numbers Additive series sometimes known as Fibonacci numbers 1, 2, 3, 5 ...
29. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ancient history, always leaving the impression that what they say is accurate, but never totally quenching the thirst for answers to all the remaining, undiscussed, correlative questions. In the development of this "synchronology," I followed a technique which generally seems to be ignored or downplayed by other historians. According to Rawlinson, the Assyrians and Babylonians counted a year only after its passage. (6 ) If a king ascended to the throne in, say, 700, his "first year" would be 699 and his "fifth year" would be 695. The exact number of years stated is always subtracted from the starting date, as we in the modern-day world commonly ...
30. Additional Notes on Assyro-Babylonian Chronology [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... He says he has "never understood the need for double-dating (649/48), to impress the reader" (Schlecker, p. 106). Accusing scholars for using this convention "to impress the reader" is almost ridiculous. On the contrary, it is a very common, simple and convenient way of expressing Assyrian or Babylonian regnal years, and there are certainly no scholars who apply this usage for any other purpose. As the first month of the Babylonian calendar year, Nisan, fell in the Spring (about March/April), a regnal year covered parts of two years in our calendar. A common convention for expressing a specific regnal year, ...
