91. Thiele's Assyrian Reliance [SIS C&C Review $]
... family finances. During varied employment he gained degrees in accountancy and Health Administration. He retired as Chief Executive Officer of his local suburban hospital and now works part time in a Tax Office. His interest in Velikovsky began in 1967 and he has attended two Cambridge, two Portland and the one Braziers Conference. Eric is working on his theory that the Habiru were the Assyrians under Tiglath Pileser III and Sargon II. He believes Velikovsky was extremely close to the historical truth but that his alter ego concept cannot be accepted. Summary The Bible has three instances of correlation with Hezekiah and Hoshea. Thiele ignores these correlations and goes into the most complex arguments to come up with a scheme that is not only not supported by the Bible but is denied by the Bible. The end result of Thiele's chronological contortions is to have Pekah rule elsewhere and to distort the period allocated to Uzziah. If Hoshea is redated, so must Tiglath Pileser. Aligning Tiglath Pileser III with a re-dated Hoshea causes Tiglath Pileser, and those conventionally contemporary with him, to move chronologically. The ...
92. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... recalls the Anatolian place name Apishal."[39 Nine of the 17 tent-dwelling AKL kings can reasonably be identified with GHD ancestors of Hammurapi. This would appear to be sufficient to establish that these two genealogies drew upon a common "Amorite" tradition. To a much lesser extent one may cite a possible connection with Ugaritic genealogical tradition cited earlier, in that Ugarit also comes within the general Amorite influence.[40 Malamat adds: [41 Moreover, these royal genealogies were composed in a technique similar to that known in the Bible, of fictitiously linking historical personages to earlier eponyms in fact representing names of an artificial character, such as tribes or geographical entities as demonstrated by Finkelstein concerning GHD, and Kraus for AKL. What is more, comparison of the Babylonian and Assyrian King lists, headed by essentially identical putative eponyms, indicates a common genealogical tradition, whether historically based or of mere scribal deduction-- one most likely shared by early West Semitic tribes in general. A similar consciousness of common ancestors is evident in the genealogical tables of Genesis. ...
93. The Dating of the El-Amarna Letters [SIS C&C Review $]
... , the correspondence of the Pharaohs Amenhotep III and IV (Akhnaton) with their fellow rulers in Anatolia and Mesopotamia and with their vassal rulers in Syria and Palestine. According to his revised chronology, these Pharaohs ruled in the mid-9th, and not the 14th century BC and the letters themselves date roughly to between 870 and 840 BC (1). For this to be so it was necessary for him to demonstrate that the letters from Syria and Palestine were written by the kings of the mid-9th century known to us principally from the Bible and from some secondary sources such as the annals of the Assyrian king Shalmaneser III, "if it is true that Egyptian history must be revised and moved forward more than half a thousand years". Velikovsky based his comparison of the events of the letters and those of the Scriptures on the identifications of Abdi-Hiba of Jerusalem with King Jehoshaphat of Judah. Rib-Addi of Gubla (and Sumur) with King Ahab of Israel, and Abdi-Ashirta and his son Azaru of Amurru with Ben-Hadad and Hazael, rulers of Damascus. With the latter ...
94. The Prophecy In Paleontology [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIII:2 (July 1991) Home¦ Issue Contents The Prophecy In Paleontology Milo Kearney Except for a slight alliteration, prophecy and paleontology would seem to have little in common. Yet a close relationship may well exist between the two. Before this possibility is examined, the controversy between science and religion regarding the shaping of the earth should be addressed. Science and the Bible are not as mutually contradictory as is often supposed. The most notorious case of a purported clash between the Bible and science is over the nature of the creation of the earth and of the life upon it. Thus the story presented in the first chapter of Genesis for the creation of the world has been explained as a myth. Robert Graves maintained that the creation on each day was related to the god honored traditionally on that day. Hence light was said to have been created on the first day because Sunday was holy to the sun god; the sea on the second day because Monday was holy to the Moon goddess; the dry land ...
95. Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: Who is Pulling Whose Leg? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:2 (July 1992) Home¦ Issue Contents Tiglath-pileser versus Pul: Who is Pulling Whose Leg? Herbert A. Storck The previous comments by A. P. McIntyre comprise chapter four of his book on biblical history. While occasionally insightful this book is basically a spirited argument for the complete inerrancy of the Bible. We are told in the introduction to this book that the only way to properly criticize him is to show the inadequacy of his arguments but not his total faith in the received Word. One can appreciate and perhaps even agree with his complaint that the Biblical account of its own history has not received the kind of honest treatment that its counterparts in Assyria and even Egypt have received over the years. However, that does not justify his approach to the Bible, his anti- establishment bias and his cavalier (mis)treatment of all that has gone before. His book deals with the chronology of the Hebrew kings, the Assyrian king Tiglathpileser, Belshazzar and Darius the Mede, Ahasuerus and Xerxes ...
96. Letters [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1998:2 (Mar 1998) Home¦ Issue Contents Letters Sennacherib and Solomon In C&CR 1998:1 (Letters p. 59), Michael Reade queries my dating of the death of Sennacherib to 405BC, claiming that this would place the Exodus in 630BC, 25 years after the time of Solomon and asks what is the value of erudite argument on 'such shaky foundations'? An enlightened mainstream Biblical archaeologist would answer Michael Reade most probably as follows: (i) Bible chronology jumps in pious multiples of 40 years. Thus, the Bible fundamentalist date of Solomon carries no real weight in scholarly circles; (ii) an archaeology for Solomon could never be established beyond doubt. He is either a nostrified character taken from other ancient Near Eastern writings- e.g., well accessible royal inscriptions- and/or an anthropomorphisation of a celestial deity; (iii) the sequence of events and characters in the Bible cannot be taken as a historical sequence. This is not due to any intention of the ...
97. Habiru and Hebrew [SIS C&C Review $]
... &CR Vol. X David Rohl and Bernard Newgrosh argued for the Labayu= Saul and Habiru= Hebrew identifications [1. In C&CR Vol. XV Peter van der Veen argued in detail for identifying the habiru in the El Amarna letters with the Hebrews under David in the First Book of Samuel [2. If their arguments are correct, the resultant fixed point in the New Chronology invalidates both the conventional account and Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos [3. The word Hebrew ('ibri/ 'ibrim) is used extensively in the Bible at many periods. The word habiru is particularly found in the Akkadian (cuneiform) El Amarna archives of the late 18th Dynasty, where it refers to marauders or guerilleros of some kind in Palestine. (A presumed equivalent word- generally signifying itinerant workers- is found in Egyptian language texts at various periods.) The particular 'literary' aspect of the El Amarna habiru idiom and the I Samuel/Philistine use of the term 'Hebrew' which leads van der Veen to conclude that they are contemporaneous is the assertion that both ...
98. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 4 (Spring 1977) Home¦ Issue Contents Planets in the Bible: I-- The Cosmology of Job Martin Sieff Copyright (c) M. J. Sieff, 1977 MARTIN SIEFF HAS AN HONOURS DEGREE IN HISTORY FROM OXFORD UNIVERSITY, AND IS CURRENTLY PREPARING A DOCTORATE THESIS. HE IS A FOUNDER OF THE SOCIETY AND ASSOCIATE EDITOR OF THE REVIEW. Opinion is divided as to the dating of the book of Job. Because the earliest known example of Satan as Accuser found elsewhere in Hebrew literature is in the book of Zechariah (3:1ff), an early post-exilic date is generally assumed. The book of Job was included in the canon of sacred scriptures by the generation before the destruction of the Second Temple (1). It was not among those works which the Rabbis debated excluding from the Biblical canon at Yavneh (ca.100 AD) (2), despite its disputably heretical content (3). The book may well have gone through its final editing at the time of Ezra, who ...
99. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER SIX: THE CHARISMA OF MOSES [Quantavolution Website]
... a love-child would have received the adoption and attention that Moses got. Hebrew women would understandably be his wet-nurse (his "mother") and baby-sitter (Miriam, daughter of the wet-nurse); Aaron, older brother of Miriam, would be a devoted admirer of the young gentleman from childhood. Thus we solve the relationship with Aaron and Miriam- no brother and sister, but possibly half-brother and half-sister through their father, or cousins by an uncle, with his step-mother or aunt his wet-nurse. The Jewish legends, unlike the Bible, make a number of references to the Egyptianizing of the Hebrews, their abandonment of their old religion, their working against their own people and for the Egyptians, and, of course, the non-tribal "mixed-multitude" that joined in Moses' expedition into another world. In a curious legend, Yahweh blames Moses for the Revolt of the Golden Calf [3, saying that it was Moses who wanted to bring along the mixed multitude that wanted to join them... It is now these people, 'thy people' ...
100. Ezra and Nehemiah in Recent Research [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... after the publication of my own monograph History and Prophecy: A Study in the Post Exilic Period (Nabu House: Toronto, Canada) 1989. I will be using the presentation of E. W. Faulstich, History, Harmony, The Exile and Return to structure the arguments of this review article. I shall move from a few general remarks concerning his book to more specific ones while incorporating much of the current research into the Post Exilic Period. Faulstich's book is rather well done considering its fundamentalist point of view regarding the Bible and his idiosyncratic preoccupation with precisely dating every event by means of his computer chronology. While fundamentalist views, academic or religious, can interfere with Biblical interpretation, as do personal idiosyncracies, they do not seem to significantly affect the portion of his study concerning Ezra and Nehemiah which comprises chapters 5 and 6 or pages 98-171. This has as much to do with the straightforwardness of Ezra/Nehemiah as it has to do with Faulstich's presentation of the period. On balance, despite some major misinterpretations of evidence (primarily before page ...
