31. Our Rock Who Art in Heaven [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2000:1 (May 2000) Home¦ Issue Contents World Wide Web focus Our Rock Who Art in Heaven www.sinclairpress.com This book compares stories in the Bible with stories in mythology with current information/speculation about comets, meteor showers, and impact events Mythology isn't about precession or morality, and the Bible isn't a history book. In this iconoclastic work, Ms. Brook explores the Bible as mythology- as a history, not of ordinary human events, but of extraordinary celestial events for which astronomers now have plenty of evidence. That evidence testifies to the arrival of a giant comet in our inner solar system, perhaps as early as 20,000 years ago. As the trapped comet collided with our planet's nearby neighbours and its own offspring, fireballs exploded overhead and meteorites rained repeatedly over the Earth. The people of ancient times could point out their gods and goddesses- they were visible celestial bodies. A short time ago, they besieged this planet. At least one of those gods, the Bible's "Most High, ...
32. Goedicke in Response to Stiebing [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... I am an Egyptologist and I am concerned with historical events which affected the Nile Valley and its inhabitants. If the Egyptian records point to natural disasters around the above date (the Speos Artemidos inscription of Hatshepsut is not the only one), it is my aim to grasp these indications in the framework of Egyptology. If the event or events happen to be reflected in other sources as well, one can consider this to be an extension of the primary concern. This question is especially pertinent in relation to anything transmitted by the Bible. The latter is not a historical account and thus should not be treated as such. The Bible as a literary composition is extremely complex; the study of its evolution is a vast intellectual endeavor, and its arbitrary use to grasp political and human events that occurred thousands of years ago is to be categorically rejected. Before anything meaningful can be envisaged, a sound methodological basis has to be attained. The biblical text in its present form is dated by specialists in the field as late as the Sixth Century B.C., ...
33. The Reliability of Biblical Synchronisms in Constructing an Historical Chronology from Rehoboam to Hezekiah [SIS C&C Review $]
... there is no way of knowing whether or not co-regnal years have been included in the reign when the accession date to a co-regency is expressed in the co-regnal years of the other junior king. 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, co-regencies and alterations to the Assyrian Eponym lists are all enlisted as explanations. They then claim that because the dates fit the models they must be historically accurate [3. The systems they devise are ...
34. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER TWO: THE SCENARIO OF EXODUS [Quantavolution Website]
... , here one may consider that Moses was a Hebraic Egyptian raised in a royal household, on the princely level of an adopted son of a princess. He had a named father whom he 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 (and it was probably Moses) dealt familiarly with their conduct. Moses "knew his way around." HIGH-LEVEL NEGOTIATIONS When it came time to deal with the Pharaoh, there appears to ...
35. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... to North (pp. 24, 27) leading to a take-over of the Land of Canaan. In his interpretation, the biblical Exodus story contained some distant folk memory of this migration. [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 the setting for the Exodus, so I shall digress slightly to review his book. The new location proposed is Har Karkom in Israel's southern Negev or NE Sinai, a flat topped mountain 847 ...
36. New Archaeological Dates for the Israelite Conquest Part I [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... :1), or to the thirteenth century B.C. (based primarily on the reference in Exodus 1:11 to the city of Ra'amses, which is almost certainly to be identified with Per-Ramesses, capital of Ramesses II). Both of these dates fall within the Late Bronze Age according to the conventional archaeological chronology for Palestine. Excavations have shown that destructions did occur at the end of the Late Bronze Age at Lachish, Bethel, Hazor, and Dan, all of which were conquered by the Israelites, according to the Bible (see Figure 1). But other cities (some of which play important roles in the biblical narratives of the conquest)-- Kadesh-Barnea, Arad, Hormah, Heshbon, Dibon, Ai, and Hebron-- were not occupied during the Late Bronze Age. Two others, Jericho and Gibeon, had only minor remains from the Late Bronze IIA period. They were not occupied in the fifteenth or thirteenth centuries. This lack of agreement between the archaeological record from the Late Bronze Age and the conquest narratives has led ...
37. A Brief Summary of the Evidence for a Gap in the Bible and Much Earlier Dates for Many of its Major Events [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Proceedings of The Second Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1985) Home¦ Issue Contents A Brief Summary of the Evidence for a Gap in the Bible and Much Earlier Dates for Many of its Major Events Tom Chetwynd Why Reconsider the Evidence? Opinion about the dating of certain major events in Hebrew history is so deeply rooted, so firmly established, that none of the new archaeological evidence (which only comes to light piece by piece, fragment by fragment) has been able to shake it. It is firmly held, for example, that the Hebrews did not enter Canaan until after 1400 B.C. When it was finally determined that the walls of Jericho fell outward in an earthquake before 2000 B.C., this important piece of archaeological evidence was promptly dismissed on the grounds that it took place too early to corroborate the biblical account of the fall of the walls of Jericho. This is only one incident among many. In each case the evidence to corroborate the Hebrew stories in the late period is negligible and flimsy. In the early period ...
38. Heinsohn, Velikovsky and the Revised Chronology [Aeon Journal $]
... overturn his thesis they will first have to provide the Chaldean and Persian strata that are now held to be missing from the archaeological record in Mesopotamia. Nothing that Heinsohn is proposing is half as radical or preposterous as the concept- accepted by mainstream historians- that the Chaldeans and Persians left no physical remains in Mesopotamia. I don't think Heinsohn will win many friends among Velikovskians, at least not at first. Many of us were attracted to Velikovsky by his revitalization of Biblical history. This doesn't necessarily imply a religious interest. The Bible is the number one catastrophist document of all time. Velikovsky revealed the actual meaning of scripture which had heretofore been obscure. Having seen the Bible used as a lever to shift the history of Egypt, it is discomforting to see Heinsohn's Mesopotamia used as a lever to shift the Bible. But the wheel of history never ceases to turn. Thanks to Gunnar Heinsohn, both the Bible and the history of the ancient world are in for a few turns more. \cdrom\pubs\journals\aeon\vol0102\008heins.htm ...
39. Velikovsky at Harvard [Pensee]
... this or that claim about some discovery or find is really true. In my books you have nothing to take on belief. You have only to read and then to follow your own logic. For example, my Earth in Upheaval is a book on the paleontological record. I never did any field work in geology or paleontology. But I collected the printed material, and when it is collected and presented, whoever reads it cannot remain a believer in slow evolution." Goldfarb: "To what extent do you believe the Bible is an accurate document or historical record?" Velikovsky: "I'm not a fundamentalist and I oppose fundamentalism. I consider any work written by a fundamentalist --say on geology or paleontology --as of reduced value (even though it may have some interesting facts brought together) because there is an axe to grind. You cannot approach the Bible differently than you approach any other source. I found, however, that the Old Testament is a carefully composed history. I was gratified to discover that it is basically a truthful document. ...
40. The Secret Code [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. XI No. 1 (Fall 1985) Home¦ Issue Contents IMPORTANT NEW FINDINGS The Secret Code or Hidden Language of the Bible A major breakthrough in the field of Biblical Research in light of the ancient Near Eastern Civilizations After 10 years of extensive research, Thierry Gaudin demonstrates conclusively the existence of Coded Text of Astronomy hidden beneath the narrative of the first five Hebrew books of the Old Testament In doing so, the author takes us back on a journey to the heart of the ancient Near East by showing how Mesopotamian belief and astronomical knowledge became the exclusive building material of the Biblical Edifice Written in the official language of Mesopotamia, where Religion and Science shared the same vaulted roof for better or for worse The Secret Code for the first time provides us with definitive amswers to the numerous questions that have been asked for centuries: WHY was the world said to have been created in 6 days+ a 7th? WHAT is the original meaning of both the Biblical and Sumero-Babylonian system of chronology? WHAT special astronomical event was recorded in the ...
