121. Letter to the Editor from W. T. Black [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:1 (Aug 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents Letter to the Editor W. T. Black Editor, C&AH: Based on a misreading of the Bible, most people believe there was only one Flood, but there is abundant evidence of two floods. Many scientists today recognize that fact. Too many readers accept the Bible as merely a religious book, little realizing that it is also a very important historical document. For many years Biblical scholars, archaeologists, and even geologists searched for evidence of Noah's Flood in Mesopotamia, ignoring the fact that the flood was world wide. Despite many thousands of dollars spent in such research, no evidence was found to correspond with the account in Genesis. Some scholars, like Hastings, then declared it a myth. The difficulty lay in the fact that the Biblical record was an account of two floods-- Noah's Flood "superimposed," so to speak, onto a much more ancient description of a far earlier flood. As we all know, there ...
122. Velikovsky, Solomon, strata [SIS Internet Digest $]
... such as Egyptian, isn't in fact tenth century. How all that works out from site to site is surely complicated requiring all kinds of difficult 'solutions' to explain order and sequence problems. Something I don't know enough about to comment on unless the point is attacked by dogmatics as is their providence From: email@example.com (Dan Duffy) Date: Sun, 16 May 1999 165647 -0700 (PDT) Velikovsky accepted Biblical chronology as untouchable. This was his strong point and weak point. As "The Hidden Book in the Bible" shows, the Biblical narrative was heavily edited by people who tried to create a coherent story out of fragments. These fragments were reassembled for religious reasons, and may not convey the genuine history of that period. From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Clark Whelton) Date: Mon, 17 May 1999 140230 -0400 That is Velikovsky's method in a nutshell... use the archaeology of Egypt and other lands to provide the "missing" archaeology of Biblical history.

123. The Scientific Mafia [Pensee]
... , the diurnal motion interrupted, the month and year lengthened, the axis of rotation changed --etc., etc. The author was one Immanuel Velikovsky, a Russian Jew, born in 1895. He graduated in medicine in Moscow in 1921, and after various other occupations and places of residence he was to be found practicing psychoanalysis in Tel Aviv in the Thirties. A book he projected on Freud's heroes was the unlikely germ of all his later work, for it led him to think about Moses and the Exodus. Now the Bible portrays the Exodus as taking place amid a series of extraordinary natural disasters; and especially when Velikovsky found an Egyptian document which seemed to refer to the same events, he began to wonder whether the disasters might not have been real. Natural Catastrophism Ten years later Worlds in Collision presented his evidence, accumulated from testimony, tradition, legend, and religions the world over, for the story of the birth of Venus as a planet after a period in which earth, sea and sky were convulsed. The next few years saw ...

125. Kronos by Robert de Telder (Reviewed) [SIS C&C Review $]
... seeks to reconstruct Near Eastern chronology via a frankly fundamentalist interpretation of the Old Testament. It differs from other such endeavours in that it accepts Velikovsky's reconstruction of Egyptian chronology in Ages in Chaos Vol. 1 (though Peoples of the Sea is rejected). The author also seeks to incorporate Herodotus' Egyptian chronology into his scheme and takes the Father of History at his word in placing the 4th Dynasty pyramid-builders immediately before the Ethiopian 25 th Dynasty. Essentially, therefore, this is a combination or synthesis of Velikovsky, Herodotus and the Bible, all of which are treated, more or less, as 'revealed truth'. In this way the author makes the Amarna Age (late 18 th Dynasty), which Velikovsky placed in the 9th century, contemporary with the Pyramid Age, which Herodotus placed immediately before the Ethiopian Shabaka (late 8th century). The Amarna Age pharaohs are therefore identified with the pyramid-building 4 th Dynasty. Thus Akhenaten= Cheops; Smenkhkare= Chephren; Tutankhamun= Mycerinus; Ay= Anysis. In support of such controversial identifications the author ...
126. Tyre: "Joy, shipmate, joy" [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... for fact. My own pleasure in his labors naturally springs in part from satisfaction on finding verification of hypotheses which I had somewhat painfully explored some years before. In the spring of 1977 I worked out a Tyre chronology from the time of King Hiram to the founding of Carthage. It was included in an essay, "Sidelights on Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos," now awaiting publication in Kronos. Here is my independent date-list of the Tyrian kings between Hiram and Pygmalion, based on research in the first Book of Kings in the Bible, Josephus' Against Apion, Justin's Epitome of Trogus Pompeius, and confirmed by Olaf A. Toffteen's Ancient Chronology (Chicago, 1907): Abibaal ?-980 B.C. Hiram 980-946 Baalmanzer 946-928 Abd-Ashtart 928-920 Methu-Ashtart 920-908 Ashtaram 908-899 Pheles 898 (8 months) Ethbaal 898-866 Baalezer 866-860 Baalmanzer II 860-840 Matan-Baal 840-832 Abimilki 832-785 (Pygmalion) Jacob Katzenstein's The History of Tyre (Jerusalem, 1973) was useful in testing these results. However, my opinion on the founding of Carthage in 825 (by Romanist reckoning) remains in conformity with ...
127. Soddom and Gomorrah 'Found At Bottom of Dead Sea'? [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents Soddom and Gomorrah 'Found At Bottom of Dead Sea'? CCNet, 27 March 2000 By Jonathan Petre, from The Sunday Telegraph, 26 March 2000 http://www.telegraph.co.uk. Copyright 2000. A Bible scholar believes that he has found the ruins of Sodom and Gomorrah, the evil cities destroyed by God with fire and brimstone, after leading the first expedition to explore the bottom of the Dead Sea. Michael Sanders and an international team of researchers discovered what appear to be the salt-encrusted remains of ancient settlements on the seabed after several fraught weeks diving in a mini submarine. Mr Sanders, a Briton who is now based in the United States, said yesterday that he was "immensely excited" about the find, and he is already planning a follow-up expedition. Dr John Whitaker, a geologist from Leicester University and the former editor of Geology Today, said yesterday that the new development- which will be unveiled in a television documentary tomorrow- appeared "very significant ...
128. Centuries of Darkness? - a Challenge to the Conventional Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... hardback and Pimlico (London), 1992, in paperback A sensational new book on biblical history, The Early History of the Israelite People, by Professor Thomas Thompson of Marquette University, Milwaukee, is to be published shortly, according to a report in The Independent on Sunday on 28th March 1993. Thompson argues that the first ten books of the Old Testament are almost certainly fiction, written 500-1500 years after the events they describe, and that there is a complete absence of archaeological and historical evidence for key events recorded in the Bible. He concludes that the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, the Exodus and Conquest of Canaan never took place and adds that: "it is out of the question that Saul, David and Solomon as described as kings in the Bible, could have existed. I think the biblical accounts are wonderful stories, invented at the time when Jerusalem was part of the Persian Empire in the 5th century BC." Thompson bases this latter claim on the lack of evidence for a settled population around Judea and Jerusalem during the tenth century, ...

... the end of the earlier era the priesthoods needed a Saviour which they found in the Son. 277 pages, 5 x 8", paper bound. (C) 1994. $10. Prologue to a Beginning: In this book the author first identifies the Passover, Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles which the Ancients observed for performing rites. These rites are described in terms of the electrical effects that caused a divine light to shine on the devotees. Then for the remainder of the book the author introduces the code words of the Bible that refer to various aspects of these rites. This is accomplished with the help of a set of books called the Zohar. Using on the Prologue to these books the author rediscovers the ancient wisdom of the Bible and takes the reader into the fascinating world of the adepts. $12. Mailing charges at buyer's discretion.

130. Lisa Aaronson's Jerusalem Ancient History [SIS Internet Digest $]
... give the beginning of the Bronze Age as anywhere from 4000 BCE to 3000 BCE. The JAH dates the beginning of the Bronze Age to after 2000 BCE. The basis of the JAH is the realization that the history of the Land of Israel, from the earliest urban settlements until the Alexandrian conquest, is described identically by the archeological evidence and the biblical record. But that the conventional dating of the archeological levels (strata) has stretched the archeological record out, relative to the actual historical events, so that archeology and the Bible appear to conflict. If you are interested in details about revision hypotheses in general, and the JAH in particular, I have written an article called "On the Care and Feeding of Revision Hypotheses". An ASCII text file version of this article may be requested by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, if you are interested in biblical chronology as such, the Jerusalem Chronology of the Israelite Monarchies is a comprehensive chronology of the period of the kings of Israel and Judah. This period is contains the most chronological ...
