21. The Bible as History? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1994 (Vol XVI) (Oct 1995) Home | Issue Contents The Bible as History?works reviewed: The Unauthorised Version: Truth and Fiction in the Bible by Robin Lane Fox (Viking, 1991; Penguin, 1992) Secrets of the Times: Myth and History in Biblical Chronology by Jeremy Hughes (JSOT, Sheffield, 1990) Robin Lane Fox is a historian of conventional persuasions, an atheist who nevertheless believes in the Bible. Crisply written, incisive and often extremely witty, his work is an unauthorised version' because he tells what the Bible would conceal or deny. It is a historian's view of what is truth ...
22. Stephen Jay Gould and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... at work. Just like Rifkin, Gould is retelling Velikovsky's position making it appear "more foolish and caricatured" and giving it the "name," "gloriously wrong," as opposed to Gould's "victors" or heros. What is the cardboard or stereotype game that Lyell played? According to Gould, Lyell used Biblical fundamentalism or Bible baiting to bash his opponents. As Gould aptly remarks, "In particular, Lyell noted that the 5000-year time scale of Genesis had faded from respectability by 1800, and that his scientific colleagues could only stand accused (at most) of not allowing sufficient millions [of years] in their revised estimates . . . . But later ...
23. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Some revisionists remain convinced of the need to dramatically rewrite ancient history, whereas others have opted for essentially a watered-down version of Ages in Chaos. The New Chronology was an attempt, it could be argued, to salvage something from the concept of Ages in Chaos. However it continues to give prominence to Biblical historiography. The role of the Bible in the books of Velikovsky has acted as a magnet, attracting a motley bunch of enthusiasts. However, the idea of the Bible as a reliable historical account has taken a pounding in recent years. Van Seters and TL Thompson, Robin Lane Fox and Norman Cohn [1 ,2 ,3 ,4 ,5 ] have all ...
24. Velikovsky, Fundamentalism and the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Aeon]
... in having things come out a certain way." Velikovsky's eyes blazed in anger. "In other words," he snapped, "this man is calling me a liar." I tried to explain that I didn't think such an accusation was being made, but Velikovsky got up, walked across the room, and picked up a Bible. Barely in control of his emotions, he said: "I will read you something." He turned to Jeremiah 52, the story of Israel's rebellion against Nebuchadnezzar. As King Zedekiah tried to escape from besieged Jerusalem, he was captured near Jericho and taken before Nebuchadnezzar at Riblah. "The leaders of Judah were killed on ...
25. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... never saw. He was exiled by his pharaoh-father, and was now back on the scene of his earlier life, dealing with a pharaoh who, considering Egyptian royal incest practices, could have been his step-brother, his step-uncle, or his step-father, or even a combination thereof, and whom he had once known well. Much that the Bible contains about the behavior of the Egyptian elite seems to come from an inside view. Professional journalists assigned to world capitals would probably agree that the exchanges between the Hebrew and the Egyptian leaders sound true. The general format could hardly have been corrupted, although Moses' reports must have been extensively rewritten. Whoever was writing the scene originally ...
... From: Moons, Myths and Man by H. S. Bellamy CD Rom Home Last | Contents | Next 18 The Literature of the Bible The literature of the Bible offers a great problem to the mythologist. The Bible is a unique Book consisting of various matter from various ages and various nations in various stages of their development. It represents a fair though entirely arbitrary selection of writings which are neither historical nor mythological in any strict sense. The Jewish religious beliefs have gone through a very peculiar process of sublimation in the course of which a divine glamour was thrown over all the hard facts', till faith developed out of a religion of experience a religion of revelation ...
27. And it Came to Pass, in the Days of Amraphel King of Shine'ar: Biblical Veracity and Non-biblical Chronology [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... a century ago, every schoolboy knew that Abraham was the first Hebrew Patriarch and a contemporary of the Babylonian king Hammurabi (renowned for his law code). Biblical criticism, asking for the scientifically required independent corroboration for the deeds of Abraham, raised doubts regarding his very existence (and the veracity of other Patriarchal and Exodus tales in the Bible); archaeology, invariably confirming the biblical data from the Books of Kings onward, appeared less generous concerning the earlier feats. Was there an Exodus? Since the event is not (so it is generally held) mentioned in Egyptian records, doubt is in fashion. And if it did happen, when? Current view places it ...
28. The Reliability of Biblical Synchronisms in Constructing an Historical Chronology from Rehoboam to Hezekiah [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The date is not fixed and reign lengths can be telescoped or expanded. The date of a junior king's accession to a co-regency is never expressed in the unambiguous terms of his father's regnal years. The omission of this simple way of keeping track of reign lengths gives rise to the suspicion that both co-regencies and total reign lengths enumerated in the Bible serve a different function. Shortcomings of the chronologies of Thiele and Aaronson Thiele [1 ] and Aaronson [2 ] have such confidence in the accuracy of biblical data as a contemporary record that they devise complex systems to account for the chronological inconsistencies. Off-set regnal years, changes from accession year dating to non-accession year dating and back again ...
29. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... they were forty years in the desert? How did Moses know he was a year older? How long were these years'? As though the age attributed to Moses during his leadership of the Israelites was not amazing enough, the ages of the pre-diluvian patriarchs surpasses belief' - quoting the words of Diodorus of Sicily. According to the Bible, these extraordinary patriarchs had lifespans ranging from 777 to 969 years. The critical question is how long were these years? Our Society was formed with the intention of trying to resolve such conundrums. Our publication titles contain the words Chronology and Catastrophism', i.e ., the passage of time and any world-shaking events that may ...
30. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Footnote: * Note: There is considerable confusion of terminology. Cohen's MB I is the second half of the period also known as EB-MB or EB IV or Intermediate Bronze - see below.] Anati saw far greater parallels to the biblical account and also proposed a new location for Mt Sinai which better fitted the geographical evidence given in the Bible. He published in BAR (1985) with an article Has Mt. Sinai been found? '. This was followed up in 1986 with a book The Mountain of God. The location of Mt Sinai is not essential to dating the Exodus, but Anati builds up a convincing picture of the end of the Early Bronze Age as ...
