41. “I Survived, As You See" [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... that 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 paleontologi-cal 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 regaina 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 ...
42. Angels & Catastrophism - Some Theological Implications - Part I [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the angels superfluous. Angels were no more needed to move the planets than God was needed to install a rainbow in the sky. If the primitive identification of angels with planets and the later speculation of the Schoolmen were the sole heritage passed down about the angels, then the word 'angel' would likely have passed out of currency altogether. However, it is the Biblical references to angels which have really guaranteed their continued consideration and underwritten the Church's teachings in their regard. Basically there are two kinds of references to angels in the Bible: the first kind are those which we have been discussing and are those in which Velikovskian implications are undeniable. They are typified by the 'Pillar of fire by night and the pillar of cloud by day' which are described as the 'angel' which God sent before the Israelites in order to guide them out of Egypt at the time of the Exodus. Also we remember that it was the angel of the Lord which smote the 'first-born' of the Egyptians. Later (2 Kings 19:35) it was an angel ...
43. Ancient Giants and Gods [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:1 (Sep 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents Ancient Giants and Gods www.giantmyth.free-online.co.uk Ancient Giants and Gods- Their Place in Mankind's Early History. A Monograph by A.B. Finlay Ph.D. One of the most puzzling and intriguing passages in the Bible occurs in Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament, where we read that "there were giants on the earth in those days"- but disappointingly we are told very little about them. (6;4). This study is an account of the evidence, from cultures around the globe, for the existence of giants in the Ancient World. The following synopsis has links to each of the chapters of the monograph. You can download a zip file (124k) containing the entire work. There is also a page of links to other web sites with references to giants and giantism. Contents: Chapter 1: Evidence in the Old Testament. The Pentateuch (Moses): about 1450 BC. First mention of giants in Genesis. Testimony of other OT ...
44. Gezer and the Mysterious Gates of Solomon [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... survey of the archaeological evidence at Gezer will show how my revised chronology is confirmed. The so-called "Solomonic Gate" in Field III of Dever's excavations is associated with Stratum VIII in the overall excavation, and we have already seen that at Megiddo the city ascribed to Solomon was in fact built at the time of Israel's maximum prosperity, the era after Joash defeated Amaziah of Judah and the rule of the greatest military commander, Jeroboam II. It is also noteworthy that this is also the time of Uzziah, the only time the Bible mentions the occupation of Ashdod by Judah. The biblical account is quite clear that under Uzziah, the contemporary of Jeroboam II and his eventual ally, "he[Judah reduced the extent of Philistine territory to an unprecedented degree[emphasis added," so that the building of the gates and wall at Ashdod at that time, matching the work of his ally in the north, would not be at all surprising. It is in fact the only time in the history of the kingdoms that such a matching project was possible ...
45. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE ELECTRIC GOD [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS GODS FIRE Moses and the Management of Exodus by Alfred de Grazia CHAPTER EIGHT THE ELECTRIC 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 found, behind the grand son et lumière show, a great electric god, Yahweh. It may be that Moses, in ways unsuspected by the psychohistory of science, has infiltrated the lives and work of Newton, Darwin, Edison, Einstein, and others; by his tenacious insistence on the single god, he made all things dependent ...
46. Forum [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... kingdom ever called Israel? In fact after the defeat of Rehoboam two kingdoms were established, not destroyed. One of them was called Israel (and that is well known), and the other was the shrunken kingdom of Rehoboam, called Judah. 2. The second reason is Thutmose III. In the newly proposed chronological scheme Thutmose III is put in the time of the Judges around 1200 BC. Thutmose was well known from his annals to have attacked the Holy Land about fifteen times. This certainly is not reflected in the Bible at the time of Judges. 3. The third and most significant reason is the Amarna Age, which is dated by Rohl and James to around 1050 BC and the time of Saul and David. The Bible has many stories dealing with these kings- in which the Egyptians are hardly mentioned. Further, there are figures in the Amarna Letters that do seem to appear in the Bible around the time of Jehoshaphat, like Iahzibada and Zuchru. Are the habiru really the Hebrews under Saul and David? The habiru appear to ...
47. Jericho [Kronos $]
... 15) We carefully followed this trend of thought and we see that, under the great walls of Jericho, the theories of Conquest in the days of Habiru (El-Amarna) and the Conquest in the days of Merneptah (Israel Stele) are equally well-buried. In Conclusions to her Digging up Jericho, Kathleen Kenyon wrote with a sigh: "At just that stage when archaeology should have linked with the written record, archaeology fails us. This is regrettable. There is no question of the archaeology being needed to prove that the Bible is true but it is needed as a help in interpretation to those older parts of the Old Testament which from the nature of their sources... cannot be read as a straight-forward record." And what a pity it is. "When Joshua wished to lead the Children of Israel into the Promised Land, he said to his spies 'go view the land and Jericho', because Jericho was the entrance into central Palestine."(16) A tragic note is heard in Kenyon's report. She intended to discover ...
48. Exodus: The True Story Behind the Biblical Account (Review) [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... of Canaan at the end of the Middle Bronze I period (around 1407 B.C.). This theory, which held the field among conservative scholars for many years, had a number of serious problems, especially in regard to archaeological evidence. In a recent Associates for Biblical Research Newsletter (September-October 1986) David Livingston, who had supported Bimson's placement for several years, has now come out in favor of Goedicke's work, stating "we think that he may be correct in most of his theory." The newly published New Bible Atlas (1985), a companion to the extremely popular New Bible Dictionary, has suggested Bimson's conquest placement as an alternative to the "Late Date" theory that is now almost universally accepted in some form (Bimson served as a contributing editor for the atlas). Other recently published reference works have also mentioned the work of Bietak and Bimson; see for example Gleason Archer, Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties (1982), the revised International Standard Bible Encyclopedia's Exodus date of William Shea (1982-Vol. ii); see also ...
49. Did Thutmose III Despoil the Temple in Jerusalem? [SIS C&C Review $]
... Studies, Glassboro, N.J., on December 5th, 1975 and edited by Robert H. Hewsen, Professor of History at Glassboro State College. The subheadings were added by the editor, 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- supposed to correspond to the year 1479 BC (2)- embarked on a military expedition into Syria in order to fight a coalition of Syrian princes under the leadership of a "King of ...
50. The 'New Chronology' and the Amarna Period [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Jesse (Yashuya) about the whereabouts of Joab (Ayyab). Some problems with this suggestion are: (i) EA 256's Ayyab appears to have been based to the north of Mutbaal [1. As a result, the other individuals named by Mutbaal are most naturally located there also. (ii) Even if David does mean 'the beloved' (contrast p. 39, at note 95), it is very questionable whether such a name would actually have been used for him by Ishbaal. (iii) The Bible provides no inkling of any political role for Jesse (apart from the passive act of hiding from a mad king Saul). A less far fetched suggestion (p. 37) is that references in EA 286 to 'the habiru' (singular) and in EA 335 to 'the rebel' pertain to David. However, this is sheer speculation and, in view of the scarcity of such possible references to David in the Amarna Letters, they would hardly help with the problem of the dearth of references to him- unless ...
