41. Ninsianna And Ramesside Star Observations [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1986 No 1 (Jul 1986) Home | Issue Contents Ninsianna And Ramesside Star Observations Michael G.Reade Comparison of the Egyptian Ramesside Star tables with the Babylonian (Ammizaduga) Venus tablets suggests that both relate to the same celestial disturbance. Integration of the information recorded on both leads to recognition of a discontinuity in the precession of the equinoxes of about 2 months (= 60 displacement in longitude of the vernal equinox) and a suggestion as to how 4 and 8 year festival' cycles could have originated. In PEOPLES OF THE SEA, footnote No.3 on p.236, Dr Velikovsky cites the most modern figure for the ...
42. Cuneiform Astronomical Records and Celestial Instability [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Instability by Livio C. Stecchini To prove that there are ancient records which document that in recent times the earth underwent a cataclysm of extraterrestrial origin which is precisely described and should be taken into account as an empirical datum by those whose task is to construct astronomical and cosmological theories, I shall quote the opinion of a recognized major authority on Babylonian and biblical astronomy, chronology, and mythology, Father Franz Xavier Kugler (1862-1929). Kugler had a strictly scientific bent of mind. He started his academic career as a university lecturer of chemistry, but, after the death of Joseph Epping (1835-94), a fellow member of the Jesuit order and the founder of the study ...
43. New Proposals for a Downdating of the Egyptian New Kingdom (Part II) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the principal pieces of correspondence known from the imperial Hittite period which bear on Assyro-Hittite relations. This would still leave, though, a long series of Kassite kings named in Dyn. 18-19 (or earliest Dyn. 20) period texts, whose names could seem to very impressively parallel those of a series of selected late 15th-early 12th c. Babylonian Kassite kings. As will be sketched in the next section, however, an acceptance of these parallels would cause many problems. Moreover, several extremely tempting lines of argument can be adduced in support of an alternative interpretation that would be consistent with Tudhalias IV's synchronism with Shalmaneser II (and inconsistent with his synchronism with Shalmaneser I). ...
44. Babylonian Observations of Venus [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents Babylonian Observations of Venus Lynn E. Rose A Historical Record of Changing orbits Dr. Rose is a professor of philosophy at the State University of New York (Buffalo).

K160, one of the "Venus tablets of Ammizaduga" Ammizaduga was a relatively obscure king during what is known as the first Babylonian dynasty; he is usually thought to have reigned during the early ...
... IN A LITTLE TIME AFTERWARD; AS ALSO HOW NECO CARRIED JEHOAHAZ, WHO HAD BEEN MADE KING INTO EGYPT AND DELIVERED THE KINGDOM TO JEHOIAKIM; AND [LASTLY] CONCERNING JEREMIAH AND EZEKIEL. 1. NOW Neco, king of Egypt, raised an army, and marched to the river Euphrates, in order to fight with the Medes and Babylonians, who had overthrown the dominion of the Assyrians, (9 ) for he had a desire to reign over Asia. Now when he was come to the city Mendes, which belonged to the kingdom of Josiah, he brought an army to hinder him from passing through his own country, in his expedition against the Medes. Now ...
46. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... their annalistic inscriptions the identity of the Urartians. Urartu is derived from the root "Ararat," - the mountain massif associated with the Transcaucasus; it is therefore a geographical term describing a political unit inhibiting Assyrian expansion to the north and northwest. The Bible and Velikovsky In biblical genealogy the ChaIdeans are Semitic relatives of the Hebrews. In Babylonian sources they are portrayed as semi-sedentary tribes occupying the Sealands with bedouin roots in common with the Aramaean tribes of northern Babylonia and the Syrian steppe. Velikovsky7 attempts to identify the Chaldeans with the people of Khaldis, the Chaldeans placed by Xenophon in Armenia, and therefore by inference with Urartu. This point has previously been criticized by Peter James8 ...
47. The Hittite Raid [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Kassite empire, since the Kassites as a political entity had ceased to exist about 30 years earlier, according to the present wisdom. Nebuchadnezzar I is thought not to have consolidated his campaigns to the east or west and no contemporary details of this have come to light. However, "his achievements are considered outstanding in a time of relative Babylonian weakness," says Brinkman.  Nebuchadnezzar I's reign was a time of cultural[2l] and spiritual renaissance and has been described as a "turning point" in terms of religion. He appears to have appointed his daughter as entu priestess at Ur, where a stele of his was found. [ ...
48. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... , on WIC p.170, V writes: "Athena's counterpart in the Assyro-Babylonian pantheon is Astarte (Ishtar) who shatters mountains, bright torch of heaven' at whose appearance heaven and earth quake', who causes darkness and appears in a hurricane." And on WIC p.197- 8, V writes: "the Babylonians did not note these irregular movements (of Venus) merely as matters of factual interest; they were dismayed by them. In their prayers they expressed this dismay. 0 Ishtar, queen of all peoples... Thou art the light of heaven and earth .. . .. . At the thought of thy name the heaven ...
49. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... be a clumsy historical distortion of the ancient cuneiform chroniclers because in the third millennium Babylon is considered to have been without importance. Shulgi wages war against remote Subartu, which is diff~cult to localize and yet must have had great power. The end of the last "neo-Sumerian" king Ibbi-Sin and that of the last "neo- Babylonian" king Nabonidus, 1500 years later, show astonishing parallels: both had a rival regent during their last ten years; both sought, in vain, protection behind a mighty fortification between the Euphrates and Tigris, which is either called the Fortress of Martu or the Median Wall. Both lost their capital without its being destroyed. Neither ...
50. Analysis of the Babylonian Observations [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. II No. 2 (Nov 1976) Home | Issue Contents Analysis of the Babylonian Observations Lynn E. Rose and Venus Raymond C. Vaughan Copyright (c ) 1976 by Lynn E. Rose and Raymond C. Vaughan. *This paper is an expanded version of one that was first presented on June 19 1974 before the international symposium - Velikovsky and the Recent History of the Solar System - held at McMaster Univ., Hamilton, Ontario. A number of fragmentary tablets written in cuneiform describe the appearances and disappearances of "Ninsianna". It has usually been claimed that Ninsianna is the planet Venus. It has usually been claimed also that ...
