131. The Lengths of the Year [Pensee]
... and took about 10.5 new "years" would be all the information needed in order to calculate that the ratio between the old "year" and the new "year" was about 10.5 to 20, and that the 400 old "years" of the Abraham to Moses period were equivalent to about 210 of the new, post-Beth-horon "years." One major advantage of the ratio of 210:400 is that our proposed pre-Exodus "year" of .593 present years makes good sense of the biographical information about people in the Bible from Abraham to Moses and Joshua: just multiply every reported age by .593, and you then have the true age expressed in modern years. Thus Sarah's unusual pregnancy occurred not when she was 90, but when she was 90 x .593= 53. She died not when she was 127, but when she was 75. When Isaac was born to Sarah and to Abraham, Abraham was not 100, but 59. Abraham died not at 175, but at 103 or 104. Isaac married not at 40, but ...

... of the third moon (our moon), smaller and less intelligent men may have emerged who may have been our ancestors, writes Saurat. However, the giants from the end of the secondary era still survived and they mixed with the smaller men, civilised them and were treated quite often as gods. The giant amphitheatres were uncovered simply so that the 'gods' could sit there along with the men. There is, as Saurat points out, ample evidence for a time of gods and men in every ancient mythology. The bible itself gives evidence although putting the 'gods' in their place as 'giants'. (However the idea of 'God walking with Adam in the cool of the evening' needs some explanation. Perhaps it is a pagan element which escaped editorial clutches or perhaps it refers to the 'chief protective giant' or again perhaps it is a symbol of the peaceful reign of the 'god in the sky' or planetary body.) Once a moon crashes, the giants become degenerate, lumbering creatures and ogres except for the good ones that become ...

135. Moses Pharaoh of Egypt - the mystery of Akhenaten resolved [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the Red Sea. A major criticism of Osman's scenario concerns the impossibility of accepting such a short sojourn of the Israelites in Egypt from the time of Thutmose IV until the Exodus under Moses/Akhenaten. The famous 400 years of Genesis 15:13 and the 430 years of Exodus 12:40 constitutes a serious problem for anyone who insists on attaching importance to figures quoted in any ancient literature. It seems sensible, as a general rule, to adopt the principle that where figures are quoted in ancient literature, whether in the Bible, Herodotus or elsewhere, and they are in conflict with what appears to be a compelling construction of events in other respects, any significance attached to such figures should be abandoned until an alternative interpretation can be found. Osman does not disappoint here and this factor alone transforms his thesis from being merely an arguable reconstruction into one that I found compelling. The key lies in Genesis 15:16, 'But in the fourth generation they shall come hither again...' As Osman points out, only four generations were involved ...
136. Precise Synchronization Involving the Revised Chronology [Kronos $]
... ) to within an accuracy of a year or two. (The charts in Pensee IV and KRONOS I, 3 were drawn vaguely enough to allow at least ten years' error.) This is an important task, however, for obviously if the Egyptian and Hebrew chronologies cannot be so synchronized within the limits of the available data, we can reasonably say that Ages in Chaos has been effectively killed. Accordingly, I have here provided two schemes by which this synchronism can be accomplished, using the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, Ages in Chaos, and Sir Gardiner's Egypt of the Pharaohs (Oxford, 1962) as my main sources. On the Egyptian side, we have our data in the form of the highest recorded year of each king; admittedly the weakness here lies in the fact that a later date may turn up at any time. We shall here start with Thutmose III for a reason I shall mention below. The highest recorded dates are: Thutmose III, 54 years(1); Amenhotep II, 23 years; Thutmose ...

... demonstrate a remarkable reluctance to pursue scientific inquiry beyond well-trodden paths. Discussing the debate between the revised and conventional chronologies, Dr Ellis Rivkin appealed for a serious and stringent methodological approach to Velikovsky's theses. The "stakes are inordinately high," he commented (4). They are "inordinately high" because Ages in Chaos may well be one of the most important contributions to our understanding of the past ever made. NOTES 1. D. N. Freedman, in G. E. Wright (ed.): The Bible and the Ancient Near East (London, 1961), p. 207. 2. I am thinking here of some comments of R. G. A. Dolby in "On Schools of Thought", SISR I:3, p. 28, discussing the possibility of a new paradigm sharing community of scholars interested in Velikovsky's historical reconstruction: "If, however, the community was only able to keep its central dogma alive by continually modifying it so as to escape falsification by the new facts the community produced, ...

... BC. This is puzzling since his previously published graph of ring width indices shows only normal growth in the immediate vicinity of 1159 BC [Aegean Dendrochronology Project December 1990 Progress Report, Cornell University, p. 4- note that on this graph the dates were set at 39 years older than the new scheme and hence 1159 BC appears as 1198 BC. Professor Colin Renfrew reviews Kuniholm's work in the same issue of Nature (pp. 733-734) and is rightly sceptical but remains hopeful that further developments will settle the matter. The Bible, Ugarit and Amarna Michmanim is a Hebrew publication of the Hecht Museum in Haifa, with English summaries. Issue 10 (May 1996) raises anew the similarity between some biblical literature and that of the Late Bronze Age. In 'The Canaanite Literary Heritage in Ancient Hebrew Writing' (pp. 19-38& 8*) E Greenstein applies literary criteria to compare biblical literature from Numbers, Isaiah, Psalms etc with the Ugaritic Baal Cycle, Aqhat etc. and concludes there was a direct influence from Ugarit to the Bible (on ...

... ancients called Uranus, "planet which is double" of> Neptune. And everything JPL got thier hands onto> confirmed this. Funny, even I can think of a few things that distinguish Uranus and Neptune, such as the nature of the rings, size, colour, etc., and I'm not an astronomer. Obviously not everything JPL got their hand on "confirmed" this. By the way, I don't think Neptune is tilted anywhere near as much from its axis as Uranus.> Sitchin looks at the Bible as a Scientific Manual, but in a> description that a primitive (as we were at the time, or> should have been, or have been) would understand, and the> same can be said about the known Sumerian texts, which> includes the story before the bible, in even greater detail. >How?

140. Thera and the Exodus: the Cause and the Effect [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the Mediterranean from Lake Bardawil does have a range of sand dunes reaching a height of 60 metres situated at Katib el-Qals (ancient Mons Cassius), providing a refuge from the surging waters. Here the sand-spit runs in a general NE-SW direction parallel to any tsunami crest arriving from Thera. If the wave height was sufficiently high this could be the place for Dr Goedicke's scenario, but unfortunately the distance in excess of 100 km from Rameses is too far for men and cattle to walk in the three days' march described in the Bible. The ancient position of the echrima of Dr Galanopoulos's theory much have been somewhere in the region of Katib el-Qals. The distance from Rameses counts against it. Also, the Lake Bardawil sand-spit (the Via Maris) was only usable as a practical route to the East between 2700 and 500 BP when it was elevated above sea level by tectonic processes [8. As if these reasons were not enough for discarding the Galanopoulos theory, the scientific principle that water always finds its own level will rule that when the water on ...
