31. New Archaeological Dates for the Israelite Conquest Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 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 ...
32. Chaldean Account of Genesis [Books]
... inscriptions, particularly to those of the Assyrian kings contemporary with the Hebrew monarchy; and in this section of inscriptions a very large number of texts of great importance rewarded the toil of Assyrian scholars. Inscriptions of Tiglath Pileser, Shalmaneser, Sargon, Sennacherib, Esarhaddon, Nebuchadnezzar, Nabonidus, and numerous other ancient sovereigns, bearing directly on the Bible, and giving new light upon parts of ancient history before obscure, for a long time occupied almost exclusively the attention of students, and overshadowed any work in other divisions of Assyrian literature. Although it was known that Assyria borrowed its civilization and written characters from Babylonia, yet, as the Assyrian nation was mostly hostile to the southern ...
33. Night of the Gods: The Stone [Books]
... as the source of wisdom, but it sounds like a garbling of the Chinese Ch'ih Yeo, whose myth we have had before, and into whose name the character for mountain enters. No literary record of the use of the mariner's compass in Europe goes farther back than the end of the 12th century. In the satirical poem called La Bible, by Guyalt de Provins (circa 1190), the magnet is mentioned as "une pierre laide et bruniere, ou li fers volontiers se joint," (with which iron readily unites). He describes (for a comparison) how a needle, when touched with the loadstone and fixed in a straw or chip (festu ...
34. What Was "Brimstone"? [Journals] [Kronos]
... . Sizemore Editor's Note: This article was first written by the late Dr. Myers in August of 1 - 4. It has been revised and edited by Dwardu Cardona in June of this year. - LMG Omitting the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which may well have involved an explosion-produced rain of burning sulfur,(1 ) the Bible contains fourteen statements or implications that the fiery substance which fell in past catastrophes, or is to fall in the last days, was brimstone - i.e ., presumably, sulfur. The Bible also contains nineteen references to the unquenchability of this fiery substance - that is, to its ability to burn while floating on water. ...
35. The Electrical God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: God's Fire, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER EIGHT The Electrical God A famous figure of the French Enlightenment of the Eighteenth Century, Voltaire, reduced the miracles of the Bible to a laughing stock of the French salons. Voltaire nevertheless believed in a god. In a world then bemused by the technology of clocks, with clock-makers and clock-philosophers everywhere, he examined the astronomical system of the Earth and the heavens and pronounced it a clock. With all of this clockwork, said he, there must be a clock-maker somewhere. So Moses and his men will be readily understood when, in an environment that exhibited electrical effects in many places, they ...
36. The el-Amarna Letters and the New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... means man' and the Canaanite for man' is Mut. Thus both names translate as Man of Baal' - in other words we have a perfect match. The Amarna Letters record the presence of only two kings in the central hill country, Abdi-Heba in Jerusalem and Labayu to the north. This is exactly the situation recorded in the Bible for the time of Israel's first king when Saul ruled most of the uplands but Jerusalem still remained a Jebusite enclave. To the west, the Letters record the presence of a number of kings bearing Indo-European names: they ruled Gaza, Ashkelon, Gath and other towns whose names are not recorded. In the late Judges and early monarchy ...
37. Shamir [Journals] [SIS Review]
... claims the Ark ended up in Ethiopia (Hancock, The Sign and the Seal). In fringe literature the Ark was a crude apparatus designed to give electric shocks, to incinerate uninitiated interlopers and anyone foolish enough to touch it. This idea may have a connection with the pillar of smoke or fire that apparently accompanied it. In the Bible the Ark is ambiguous in some ways but it does not appear to exhibit sinister properties. For instance, Exodus 40 says Moses was commanded to place the Ark within the tent of the Tabernacle (a sort of portable temple) and cover it with a veil - of blue, purple and red. In 40:20 Moses placed ...
38. Integration or Alienation: A Case Study of the Twelve Tribes [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... immediately in a negative and weary light. Such a method might even concur with widely held traditional views about the text. But the results of this study are not the sole product- the method and subtleties are illuminated from such a different approach that they will also shed new light on the Book of the Judges and perhaps on the complete Bible. Literature Review The most overwhelming question in the Book of the Judges is that of unity. Were these twelve tribes a separate but cohesive unit throughout the period, or did they in fact unite only under periods of great duress? A whole host of literature debates this issue. Historian M. Sulzberger[2 ] views the twelve ...
39. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol 1 No 4 (Spring 1977) Home | Issue Contents Planets in the Bible: I- The Cosmology of Job Martin Sieff Copyright (c ) M. J. Sieff, 1977 MARTIN SIEFF HAS AN HONOURS DEGREE IN HISTORY FROM OXFORD UNIVERSITY, AND IS CURRENTLY PREPARING A DOCTORATE THESIS. HE IS A FOUNDER OF THE SOCIETY AND ASSOCIATE EDITOR OF THE REVIEW. Opinion is divided as to the dating of the book of Job. Because the earliest known example of Satan as Accuser found elsewhere in Hebrew literature is in the book of Zechariah (3 :1ff), an early post-exilic date is generally assumed. The book of Job was included ...
40. Did Thutmose III Despoil the Temple in Jerusalem? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... who wishes to express his thanks to Malcolm Lowery for the valuable assistance he gave in the preparation of the manuscript. Velikovsky claims that Shishak, who looted Solomon's Temple in the reign of Rehoboam, was not the Libyan Shoshenk I, but Thutmose III of the XVIIIth Dynasty. How well can this claim be reconciled with the evidence of the Bible and the records of Thutmose III? For the student of Biblical history, the most alluring chapter in Velikovsky's book Ages in Chaos is that dealing with Pharaoh Thutmose III of Egypt, of the famous XVIIIth Dynasty (1 ). According to the story as told by Egyptologists, this pharaoh, in the end year of his reign - ...
