152. Sulman Temple [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... century). It was only to be expected that there would be in some of his letters a reference to the Temple of Solomon. Also, in el-Amama letter No. 74, the king of Damascus, inciting his subordinate sheiks to attack the king of Jerusalem, commanded them to ? assemble in the Temple of ulmán.? (5) It was surprising to find in the el-Amama letters written in the fourteenth century that the capital of the land was already known then as Jerusalem (Urusalim) and not, as the Bible claimed for the. pre-Conquest period, Jebus or Salem. (6) Now, in addition, it was found that the city had a temple of ulmán in it and that the structure was of such importance that its name had been used occasionally for denoting the city itself. (Considering the eminence of the edifice, ? the house which king Solomon built for the Lord ?, (7) this was only natural.) Yet after the conquest by the Israelites under Joshua ben-Nun, the Temple of ulmán was not ...
153. Society News [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... and the Revised Chronology', which will appear in a future SIS publication. Briefly, Whelton suggests that most great thinkers, although considering themselves completely objective, do in fact still have a 'hidden agenda'. He considers that Velikovsky was led astray in his revision of ancient history through his own hidden agenda, which was a desire to reinforce the claims of his race in Israel. Although Velikovsky had made a good case in undermining the accepted chronology of ancient Egypt, he had failed to realise that he had throughout accepted the Bible blindly as a fundamentally accurate historical record. We were fortunate that another great revisionist was able to be present and that Gunnar Heinsohn allowed himself to be prevailed upon to give a short survey of his ideas and their origins. He started by admitting that he himself was not free of a 'hidden agenda', in that he desired to see the ancient civilisations assessed by their stratigraphy. It did not require the Bible to give ancient Israel a heritage in the holy land; a reassessed stratigraphy would give Canaan and Israel very credible ...

155. Address to the Chancellor?s Dinner [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... mentioned now. Somebody once said A man of talent is one who can, but a genius is one who must. Take the case of Dolomieu, the mountains in the north portion of the Adriatic Sea carry the name Dolomites in his honour. Dolomieu served under Napoleon during the French invasion of Egypt. He was later imprisoned in Napoli for several years. There he wrote his classic work on geology without having either pen or pencil, or paper upon which to write. The only object he was permitted to have was the Bible, and so he used the soot of a candle and the oil of a lamp, and he wrote his famous book on geology on the margins of the Bible. Even under difficult conditions the one who is possessed by an idea must follow it. It is not by desire, by caprice, by a need of some external goal, nor for fame, or for riches, but because something leads him so that he cannot stand still, he must follow the call. A man ? s name becomes great because ...
156. Sardanapallus and Arbaces [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... until the reign of Tiglath Pileser I which revised is reigning from 1137 until 1099 B.C. This to show that with the revision there are now 418 years between Tiglath Pileser I and Sennacherib, which was the number of years Sennacherib stated to have elapsed between him and Tiglath Pileser I. In the shortened chronology of the Israeli kings by Thiele this number of 418 years makes no sense. In this revision it does! Furthermore, the proposed revision (figure 1) is based also on kings of Assyria overlapping each other. The Bible indicates clearly that during the reign of Ahaz followed by his son Hezekiah, more than one king was reigning at the same time in Assyria. 2 Chronicles 28:16 "At that time King Ahaz sent to the kings of Assyria for help..." 2 Chronicles 32:1 "After all that Hezekiah had so faithfully done, Sennacherib king of Assyria came and invaded Juda.... Verse 4: "Why should the kings of Assyria come and find plenty of water." These two Scripture quotations ...
157. The Modern Amalekites [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the sun.*** It is not correct to say that the nation was born. The nation never died.When the boys and girls of Kfar-Etzion in the wilderness of Hebron sacrificed their lives that the gates of Palestine might be opened to survivors from Dachau and Oswieczim, no kin of theirs, or to immigrants, unknown to them, from Romania and Galicia, then, by the Almighty, they in Kfar-Etzion and in Oswieczim are of one nation. There will come a day when new chapters will be written in the Hebrew Bible, chapters that will record the history of the wandering of the Jews among nations and of their life as a persecuted minority everywhere, and of their return to their homeland after a long nightmare.*** The Hebrew Bible is the history of the Jewish people among the peoples of the world. The centuries of persecution for their faithfulness to their religion and to their past, their contributions to world civilization, their decimation in our day, and the return of ? the remnants of Israel ? to their homeland are biblical ...
158. The Holy Grail: Source of the Ancient Science and Spirituality of the Circling Cosmos by Lee Perry [SIS C&C Review $]
... Cumming, Georgia 30131, USA) This small book is the printed form of a paper presented to the Calendar Conference sponsored by the Traditional Cosmology Society and the Northern Studies Centre at Stromness, Orkney Islands, Scotland in June, 1993. I confess I have never come across a style of writing quite like it and suspect that the average Briton, at least, could find it strangely abstruse in a chatty sort of way. Perhaps it would have helped to have read the author's previous book The Holy Grail, Cosmos of the Bible( ISBN0-8022-2557-8, distributed by New Leaf Distributing Company, 5425 Tulane Drive, SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30336, USA and Baker and Taylor Books, 501 South Gladiolus Street, Momence, Illinois 60954, USA). Perry claims to have stumbled upon a rediscovery of the Holy Grail and recounts how at first he was surprised by the automatic rejection of his ideas by most of those to whom he tried to communicate his exciting breakthrough. Here he joins many another iconoclast. Due to his subject matter he found himself rejected by ...
159. Dating the Great Mahabharata War: A Previously Neglected Clue [Kronos $]
... have traversed each day just about 180 "ma'alot" from horizon to horizon, depending of course upon particular features of the landscape concerned, in approximately twelve hours. One such degree would thus correspond to about four minutes of time, so that ten "ma'alot" would mean an extra forty minutes (or so)-- more, if the apparent solar retrogression itself consumed any time. A forty-minute period would be reasonable to afford Arjuna the necessary time for the combat with King Jayadratha. The reflection is worthwhile, since the Bible knows of another occasion when the sun stood still (JOSHUA 10:12-13); but then it tarried, we are told, for an entire day-- much too long in terms of the context required in the Mahabharata passage under consideration. The reference to Hezekiah offers a good fit, however. IV If the events mentioned in the Mahabharata and in II KINGS do indeed refer to the same astronomical phenomenon, the implications clearly tend to support those scholars who argue in favour of a relatively late origin for the great ...
160. The New Orthodoxy's Respect for Fact [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... . Science, at its best, interposes human judgement and ingenuity upon all its proceedings" (all emphases added). This, of course, applies only to men and ideas that have The Gould Housekeeping Seal of Approval. He only in part approves of the Rev Thomas Burnet (17th cent.) who was not, "of course, a scientist in any modern sense of the term".(15) (He approves of Burnet's attempt to rationalize the geology of his day, but not of his invoking the Bible as history.) "He performed no experiments", chides Gould, "and he made no observations of rocks and fossils" (sound familiar?). "He used a method of 'pure' (we would say armchair) reason.... Likewise, his procedure is followed by no modern scientist that I know (sic), with the exception of Immanuel Velikovsky- for Burnet assumed the truth of scripture and fashioned a physical mechanism to make it happen, just as Velikovsky invented a new planetary physics ...
