51. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... Covenant, to the "Powerful One of Jacob." [5 Another distinguished electro-physicist, Maurice Denis-Papin (1900-x) asserted that the ark as an electrical capacitor was capable of producing from 500 to 700 volts [6. This is quite enough to electrocute humans and animals as well as to perform many other electrical operations such as apparitions, smoke, and fire-making. However, neither scholar had in mind the effects upon the ark of the electrical turbulence of the Exodus period, a condition that was deduced from many circumstances and the Bible itself by Jerry Ziegler (1977), in his book YHWH. The Leyden jar collects electricity. In its simplest form it consists of a pointed metal aerial conducting rod that is insulated from the ground by being immersed in water inside a glass jar, An electrical charge accumulates on the rod and will discharge to any grounded conducting element that touches it or comes close enough for the charge to jump the gap with a spark. (see figure 9) A similar device will add a conductor to load the opposite ground charge ...
52. Ancient Near Eastern Chronology: To Revise or not to Revise? [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... David is gen 35 (5 x 7). This is too obviously artificial and of late composition. Indeed, Joshua of generation 49 (7 x 7) is a duplicate of Jesus, generation 77 (variant spelling of the same name). Lastly, 70 years is of course the average life span according to biblical wisdom and has the symbolical meaning of 'finish' and 'death' (the end). Another biblical figure with obvious symbolism is the number 666 of Revelation. What does it mean? Elsewhere in the bible 600 is associated with 'escape', i.e. the 600 men of David in I Sam 27, the 600 Benjaminites of Judges 21:46, and the 600 Danites of Judges 18:11. 6 or 666 is clearly associated with 'escape' from the end of the world as also are the 603,550 fighting men in the multitude of Moses that escaped out of Egypt (3,550being a more reasonable number). The number 40 seems to belong to divinity in some fashion (Rees suggests Saturnian parallels) ...
53. Cushan Rishathaim [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... kingdom. 10 And finally during Iron I there was no clear dominant power. By this time the Hittite kingdom had broken up into the Neo-Hittite states of northern Syria. The fortunes of Assyria waxed and waned at this time and when the Assyrians were strong they intruded over into this area. In this same period the kingdom of Mitanni had degenerated into the rump kingdom of Hanigalbat. It is by means of this brief political sketch of these three periods that we may be aided in choosing our candidate or candidates for Cushan of the Bible. Of these three temporal phases the Early Iron Age is the least likely time for him to have risen to power. During this period Aram Naharaim was divided up into small city states, none of which was predominant. Instead of producing conquerors who could have campaigned elsewhere, they themselves were invaded by the Assyrians from time to time. This is just the reverse of the type of situation that one would posit to produce a Cushan Rishathaim who campaigned as far as Israelite territory in Canaan. If Cushan was originally an Assyrian ...
54. Integration or Alienation: A Case Study of the Twelve Tribes [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... I feel scholars are responsible for studying the text in the tradition of "textus receptus." The intertwining of disciplines-- sociology and theology-- cannot, however, be viewed 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 tribes as sovereign city-states lacking bonds. Prior to Joshua's conquest of Canaan the land consisted of city-states; Sulzberger defines such entities as units possessing their own god and king, enclosed by a wall and ...
55. Dating the Wars of Seti I [SIS C&C Review $]
... (29), and so no Biblical reference to events in Israel at the time of Seti's campaigns can be expected in Velikovsky's scheme. With the alternative dates followed here, however, we find Seti's campaigns falling within a period for which the history of the northern kingdom is well documented in the Biblical accounts. It may seem too much to hope that the deeds of Seti himself will be mentioned in the Old Testament, but we would surely expect the same historical situation to be depicted both in Seti's own inscriptions and in the Bible. Examination of these two sources will therefore provide a test for the Glasgow Chronology. The Egyptian and Hebrew sources will be discussed in turn, beginning with Seti's own records. a) THE RECORDS OF SETI I (i) The scope of Seti's wars. Seti's chief record of his wars is to be found on the exterior north wall of the Hypostyle Hall at Karnak. Here we have a series of reliefs which are in Gardiner's words, "no great works of art", but which convey "much information of ...
56. The Bible as History? [SIS C&C 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 and what is fiction in the Bible, what is history and what is myth. Velikovskians should be prepared to read such books, for after all, the Old Testament was Velikovsky's primary source of material and was treated almost exclusively as a reliable witness. But does the Bible deserve such uncritical acceptance? Fox asks all the right questions: how, when and under what circumstances were ...
57. A Critical Re-appraisal of the Book of Genesis, Part Two [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the "Egyptian Epoch" of Israelite history (i.e. from the Patriarch Joseph to the Exodus). Biblical critics today claim that those narratives which deal with the sojourn of Israel in Egypt were the work of authors who had very little knowledge of Egypt and matters Egyptian [1. As Professor Yahuda explains, Egyptology failed to provide a solution, not because the Egyptian element was lacking but "only because after the rise of the Graf-Wellhausen school some of the leading Egyptologists accepted its theories without having sufficient knowledge of Hebrew and the Bible to enable them to take any initiative in these questions" [1. Due to the fact that the average Egyptologist could find no more than occasional connections between Hebrew and Egyptian because of a lack of expertise in Hebrew, they simply took it for granted that Egyptology had very little to yield for the study of the Bible, as Yahuda points out [1. Professor Adolf Erman, a renowned Egyptologist, went so far as to affirm that "all that the Old Testament had to say about Egypt could not be regarded ...
58. Hatshepsut and the Queen of Sheba: A Critique of Velikovsky's Identification and an Alternative View [SIS C&C Review $]
... authority to outweigh the Bible's own failure to mention Egypt. There is, furthermore, a plausible explanation for the origin of Josephus's statement (other than its being historically correct), as the Appendix to this paper will show. Dr E. Danelius has drawn attention to the possibility that Sheba was once a homonym for Ethiopia [4. This, if confirmed, would superficially harmonize Josephus's information with the biblical title "Queen of Sheba". But it would still fail to explain why the visiting queen is not described in the Bible as the ruler of Egypt, if that is what she was. Describing Hatshepsut as the Queen of Sheba/Ethiopia would be akin to modern European records referring to the US President as merely (e.g.) President of Alaska. Velikovsky suggested that the name Sheba might be derived from the personal name Hatshepsut [5, but the title "queen" is in the construct state in the Hebrew (Queen of Sheba), which would not be the case with a personal name [6. Hatshepsut, Queen of Egypt ...
59. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER ONE: PLAGUES AND COMETS [Quantavolution Website]
... time in Egypt. (This king, assert reliable men, subjugated the kings of Egypt with the help of the giants.) [5 Certain (authorities) assert that the comet was seen in Syria, Babylonia, India, in the sign of Capricorn, in the form of a disc, at the time when the children of Israel advanced from Egypt toward the Promised Land, led on their way by the pillar of cloud during the day and by the pillar of fire at night [6. Yahweh, says the Bible, led the people out of Egypt "with his face." [7 The comet joined the people when they began their march and provided their posterity with a familiar image: "And the Lord [Yahweh went before them by day in a pillar of cloud to lead them along the way, and by night in a pillar of fire to give them light, that they might travel by day and by night; the pillar of cloud by day and the pillar of fire by night did not depart from the people ...
60. Pul and Tiglath-Pileser III - A Response to Jonsson [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1995 No 1 (June 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents FORUM Pul and Tiglath-Pileser III- A Response to Jonsson by Brad Aaronson In the Jerusalem Chronology of the Israelite Monarchies (JCIM) [1, I argued that the combination of biblical and Assyriological evidence suggested that a king, known in the Bible as 'Pul', reigned immediately before Tiglath-Pileser III and that this king was eliminated from the Assyrian records for political reasons. I may have made a mistake in bringing in the Greek legends of Sardanapalus to illuminate the possible historical background and to provide additional motivation for the damnatio memorae perpetrated against this king. I continue to maintain that the story of Sardanapalus contains elements of the historical Pul; however the Greek tales are no more than folklore and should not be taken at face value. The connection between Pul and Sardanapalus has no bearing whatsoever on the separate existence of Pul. The basic thesis of the non-identity of Pul and Tiglath-Pileser (which is not original to me) still stands. Jonsson [2 has three arguments ...
