81. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 10 Witley Green, Darley Heights, Stopsley, Bedfordshire LU2 8TR, UK. Dear Reader I note with dismay Trevor Palmer's latest attempt to disprove the Heinsohn/Sweeney theory ( 'Letters', C&CW 2005:1 ). To begin with, he still insists that Persian kings should be dressed as Persian kings on Assyrian and Babylonian monuments, completely ignoring that ancient rulers were likely to have been portrayed in local dress when they ruled over regions of a different ethnic identity – particularly if those regions harboured an old and venerable culture. Clark Whelton ( 'Letters', C&CW 2004:3 ) had already pointed this out to Trevor so there is no ...
82. Assyria, Karduniash, Babylon: A Rational chronology [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... - Egypt and Assyria. The lesser states for the first millennium included the Kassites, Hittites, Mitanni, Israelites, Phrygia, Urartu, and the Moabites. It is indeed possible that many other minor groups will be found, but it is hardly natural or requisite to suggest that the Urartu are really the Hittites, the Kassites are really Babylonians, or the Assyrians in fact are the Hittites, and so on. The complexity of the Near East in the second and first millennia is generally becoming more obvious as we analyze the growing number of texts being discovered. The opposite view, that we have "overcomplicated" ancient Near East society, can hardly be substantiated. On ...
83. Epilogue to Ramessides, Medes and Persians [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , more than any other single factor, responsible for the gross distortion of ancient history that we now find in the textbooks. With the advantage of hindsight we now see however that the need to challenge biblical dates should have been glaringly obvious from the beginning. Jewish genealogies, as for example that of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel, show the Babylonian Exile to be an event occurring in the mid-4th century, not the early 6th century, as "traditional" chronology insists. The same genealogy would place Abraham around 1,050 BC, in contrast to the traditional date of c.2 ,000 BC. In my Genesis of Israel and Egypt (1997) which may be ...
... The Epic of Gilgamesh and Its Sumerian Sources," JAOS 64 (1944), p. 11: "the poem was current in substantially the form in which we know it, as early as the first half of the second millennium B.C ." ]. It has been rehearsed with variants by Hurrians and Hittites, by Babylonians and Assyrians. Even in the best recensions there are large gaps, many tablets are damaged beyond repair, and to aggravate these detrimental conditions one must add the efforts of a goodly number of specialists which have not helped to clarify matters. The story has been told many times over and it appears to be fairly secure in its main ...
85. Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 2 (Jan 1994) Home | Issue Contents Assyrian and Babylonian Chronology by A Chavasse In 1867 [1 ] George Smith identified an event of the 10th year of Ashur-dan III as an eclipse retro-calculated to have taken place on the 15th of June 763 BC. This has become the basis for the chronology of Eduard Meyer (1887-1904), the model which mostly prevails today. However, Velikovsky pointed at various times that retro-calculations of dates before about 700 BC or somewhat later do not coincide with observations made by ancient astronomers and so this retro-calculation is not likely to be correct. Moreover, why should the ancient Assyrians give such ...

87. A Chronology for Mesopotamia (contra Heinsohn) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... i .e . King Amemphis or Amophis)  being synchronised with the era of Menophre  (? Meno-fre i.e . Memphis). The remainder of the 18th Dynasty dates and those of the following 19th-23rd are derived from Jeremy Goldberg's chronological thesis . Similarly, the Middle and Late Assyrian/Babylonian dates in columns IV to VII are also derived from Goldberg . However, the earlier Babylonian dates for Hammurabi as shown in column V are based on the conventional astronomical calculation of Weir . Consequently, while the dates in columns I-III for Egypt, Khatti and Carchemish are reduced by 200 plus years, those ...
88. Sins Of The Father [Journals] [Aeon]
... the rulers of the Hurrian land.  Yet if Mitanni is to be identified with the Median empire of c. 600 BC, it must be expected that a Hurrian element will figure prominently in the Median population and culture. Likewise, one must expect that the neighboring cultures that described the Medes- the Greeks, Persians, Babylonians, Assyrians, and Hebrews- would mention Hurrian practices, gods, or names. Yet a Hurrian element is conspicuous by its absence in ancient descriptions of the Median empire. Having now exposed the thoroughly baseless nature of the arguments advanced by Ginenthal and Sweeney, the reader is doubtless curious as to whether Heinsohn's musings on the Medes and ...

... text, "the paleography of [which]. . .is not characteristic enough for dating it,"(89) "was written in Babylon some time between the fourteenth and the twelfth century."(90) The Kassites of this period are also Amarna dated. Especially striking in the Middle Assyrian language are the "definite Babylonian influences."(91) After a "particularly long" material and textual gap a rich body of glass recipes with more than 500 extant lines found in the library of Ashurbanipal ( -668 to 631) resumed that 700 year old tradition. This time, however, "all glass texts in the library are part of the ...
