111. Who Were the Assyrians of the Persian Period [Aeon Journal $]
... Naram Sin Modern scholars have subjected the ancient Near East to three different dating schemes, resulting in a triplication of the actual historical periods. (2) For example, the attempt to synchronize the time of Hammurabi with Abraham necessitated placing the Babylonian ruler in the early second and/or third millennium BCE. The attempt to date the el-Amarna correspondence by astronomical retrocalculations, similarly, produced a second millennium date for the Middle Assyrians (Brak, Hamadiyah, etc.). The attempt to reconcile ancient history with the dates in the Bible, finally, placed the end of the Neo-Assyrian kingdom in the 7th century BCE. The following table was designed to make transparent how conventional scholarship manages to turn three contemporary strata of three different sites into three different periods. This author supports the stratigraphy-based history in the right column. Biblically-derived date of Hammurabi Pseudo-astronomical date for Amarna Real History (stratigraphy) Hellenistic Stratum Hellenistic Stratum Hellenism Old Babylonian Martu/Amorites against Quthians and Khanaeans Sargonids against Scythians/Ummanmanda and Quthian Mannaens; Neo-Assyrians of 9th century BCE and Middle Assyrian Martu/ ...

114. Assyrians, Sodom, and Red Herrings [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... reconstruction Shalmaneser III is clearly suggested. Sodom in the Plain After bouquets for Dirkzwager, brickbats for Dwardu Cardona. As readers, of my articles will, I hope, recall, I agree with the outline archaeological reconstruction of Donovan Courville, followed by Stan Vaninger and Tom Chetwynd, that the Exodus occurred at the end of the Early Bronze Age, that the great material wealth of the so-called Hyksos Empire of Canaan at the climax of the Middle Bronze was the United Kingdom of David and Solomon, which stretched-- as the Bible claims-- from the Nile to the Euphrates, just as the "mysterious" Hyksos Empire did. And, as a natural consequence, I agree that the great civilization break at the end of the Late Bronze, and the Late Bronze/Iron Interchange, belongs c. 750-720 B.C. and marks the Assyrian conquest of the Near East and the deportations of the Israelite peoples of the Northern Kingdom. The two arguments Cardona uses to invalidate Vaninger's position about an Early Bronze Exodus are (a) that there was occupation ...
115. The Celestial Clock [SIS Internet Digest $]
... recently discovered in ocean sedimentation and ice core drill down studies from Greenland and Antarctica. It is the dominant cycle of the "100,000" year Milankovitch ice age theory. The ancient prophets, seers, shamans, and medicine men knew about these natural apocalyptic cycles and tried their best to warn us through using animal symbology constructed from star constellations to teach us a cosmic size lesson using the Earth as the hand of a clock and the sky as the face of the clock. It is no coincidence that Revelation of the Bible talks about "red fiery dragon" and the evil serpent. Jesus and John used the same Celestial Clock symbology as other prophets of varying faiths. The snakes, the dragons- sometimes with seven heads- are present in the legends of every ancient culture from India to the Middle East, Europe to Egypt, and to the Mayans. The book explores the possibility of a major polar axis shift with severe earthquakes followed by a Noah type flood happening between the year 2000 and the year 2012 to herald the beginning of a ...
116. Bookshelf [SIS C&C Review $]
... basic theme, this book should be of major interest to all those interested in Velikovsky's interpretation of myth. Floods, Famines and Emperors: el Nino and the fate of civilizations by Brian Fagan Basic Books, New York, 1999, $25 Fagan documents a strong correlation between unusual climatic shifts and unusual historical events and discusses why some societies adapt and survive and others do not. He cites, among others, the fall of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt, the Moche of Peru and the lowland Maya of Central America The Bible Came from Arabia by K. Salibi Jonathan Cape 1985 This book has been dismissed as anti-Zionist propaganda and many refuse to read it given its central tenet that the actual geographical location of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah was in the area of south-west Arabia known as Asir. However, if there were no delicate political situation and this was simply another book about the location of Atlantis, then a serious consideration of Salibi's text might reveal that his descriptions of the supposed locations of biblical events are actually a terrestrialisation of the themes and ...
117. King Solomon's Mines? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Thutmose I; the king was Solomon, his father David. (It is a pity we have no portraits of Solomon.) The later close friendship between Hiram and King Solomon would date from their joint exploits in the South. After the meeting, Lumbedu's conquests were taken over to form a vast slave colony. I suppose that leaving a strong contingent to help establish this "Phoenician" empire, the main figures returned to their homelands in a few ships laden with the first "fruits" of their enterprise. (The Bible mentions the absence of King David during the years of the siege of Sharuhen by Joab, and at its final surrender, but does not give any details.) Then, while the pharaoh was needed to help rebuild his own country, still recovering after 400 years of Hyksos domination, the others, the young prince and the Phoenician commander, were able to make a start with exploiting their new colony. This to me explains the strong determination of the later pharaoh Thutmose III to loot the treasures of the Temple and Palace ...
118. A Brief Response to Marvin Luckerman [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... covers the period of Judges and the United Monarchy and early Divided Kingdom. I agree that they do so, but I believe that the Iron Age also covers these periods. For example, the late Dr. Aharoni wrote in the Biblical Archaeologist, "We therefore arrive at a most startling conclusion: the Biblical traditions associated with the Negeb battles cannot represent the historical sources from the days of Moses and Joshua, since nowhere in the Negeb are there any remains of the Late Bronze Age. However, the reality described in the Bible corresponds exactly to the situation in the Middle Bronze Age, when two tels, and two tels only, defended the eastern Negeb against the desert marauders, and the evidence points toward the identification of these tels with the ancient cities of Arad and Hormah. Thus the biblical tradition preserves a faithful description of the geographical-historical situation as it was some three hundred years or more prior to the Israelite conquest." (B.A., Vol. 39, No. 2, page 73, emphasis added.) Now this means that ...

120. Moderating the Middle Ages [SIS C&C Review $]
... suited his idea of millenarianism. Whilst he seems to reject a 'conspiracy theory' involving, for instance, the Papacy, it cannot be denied that the medieval Church played the role of 'Big Brother'. In Forgeries of the Middle Ages [3, however, he suggests this period was lengthened to increase ecclesiastical, especially papal, venerability. Millenarianism was common in popular Judaism of the first century BC/AD, as well as the idea that Judgement Day would come 6,000 years after Creation. Authors of the Septuagint Bible therefore increased the age at which each of the patriarchs begat his son in the genealogies of early Genesis by 100 years, with the highest of motives: prompted by wishful thinking, pushing back the date of Creation would bring Judgement Day that much closer. Events portrayed in both Old and New Testaments are both treated by Fomenko as more repetitions of medieval incidents: the entire Bible is presented as a Middle age composition, presumably by monks. Can he possibly believe that the Jews would accept a book of such origin as sacred ...
