72. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (II) [The Velikovskian $]
... Thompson's opponents explode his book in his face. I refer, of course, to John Noble Wilford's New York Times article "From Israeli Site, News of House of David" of August 6, 1993. (2) Avraham Biran's discovery, in Tel Dan, of an Aramaic inscription of about 850 BC which contained the phrases "House of David" and "king of Israel" (3) suddenly makes Thompson look ridiculous. After all, in his book, Thompson concluded that the David and Solomon traditions of the Bible are "inappropriate and of limited use to the task of writing a history of Israel's origins....The tradition fragments about Israelite kings prior to Omri (i.e., Saul, David and Solomon), falling as they do outside a fixed dynastic structure, have a weak claim to historicity." (4) Because the biblical David was never mentioned outside the Bible, Thompson considered him a character of fiction. What will Thompson do now? Of course, he may consider joining the choir that Jack M. Sasson ...
73. The Last Days of Velikovsky [SIS Internet Digest $]
... might have been inspired by the Hebrew religion, instead of the other way around. One time, reflecting upon some evidence that Akhenaton might have been partly of Palestinian or other Near East origin, Alfred wondered to Velikovsky whether Akhenaton might not have been half-Hebrew and got his monotheistic notions there. But Velikovsky would have no part in this theory of a half-Hebrew either. It was this revolt against Freud that eventually brought Velikovsky to his monumental hypothesis, for as he examined the literature he came upon elements of Egyptian documents that resembled the Bible and when put in place occurred well before the Pharaoh Akhnaton, the most important being the Ipuwer papyrus, describing what appeared to be the famous plagues of the Bible that sent the Hebrews from Egypt. He could now consider that something extraordinary and hitherto unrecognized had happened on the cosmic level at the time of the Exodus. Something that was recorded both in the Bible and in ancient Egyptian texts, provided that these were synchronized according to the new chronology. Ruth Velikovsky tells what happened next in her profound and candid life of ...
74. Sanverim: Hypnosis in the Bible [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 3 (Spring 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Sanverim: Hypnosis in the Bible Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright (C) 1983 by Elisheva Velikovsky The book from which I learned the history and practice of hypnosis treated it as a rather recent discovery, crediting F. A. Mesmer (1734-1815) with inventing hypnosis or "animal magnetism" as he called it. (1) But it is very improbable that this natural phenomenon could have evaded the ancients and remained unknown through all the centuries and millennia of recorded history. (2) Its application is too simple relative to the mystery of the phenomenon. Indeed, many of the practices of the Hindu yogis that go back to ancient times belong to the category of autohypnosis. In deep hypnosis it is possible to provoke- by a mere verbal order catalepsy, hysteria-like paralysis, and illusions. An order can be given so that a person will be unable to lift his arms; and, in the case of a person subjected to an even deeper hypnotic state, ...
75. A possible connection between the Aztec Sun Stone and western civilisations [SIS C&C Review $]
... did not know anything like an elephant. Therefore he changed a few details in his model, in order to represent something that made sense to him. Fig. 4 Of course, this is too little to allow any definite conclusions but the image in fig. 4 does suggest a connection between the Sun Stone and western civilisations. It is interesting to note that, on the other side of the Atlantic (or Pacific), evidence can be found showing a connection with the Aztec calendar and some is also found in the Bible. This evidence is constituted by figures that are strictly associated with the calendar. Our starting point was that the Aztec calendar, represented in the Sun Stone, is based on the 128 year astronomical cycle. This is the most perfect calendar conceivable and is extremely simple in principle. You can have an indefinite account of the time, with an average error of only one second per year, by doing the following: a. count normal years of 365 days (associated numbers 360+5= 30 12+5= ...
76. Some Religious Themes in the Light of Velikovsky et alia [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Light of Velikovsky et alia Hugh Eggleton "Thrones were set in place and one of great age took his seat. His robe was white as snow, the hair of his head as pure as wool. His throne was a blaze of flames, its wheels were a burning fire. A stream of fire poured out, issuing from its presence. A thousand thousand waited on him, ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him. A court was held and the books were opened."- Daniel 7:9-10 (Jerusalem Bible) The studies I have made of the works of Velikovsky and Talbott have led me to some radical conclusions concerning the origins of the Jewish faith: of these the most astounding is that it was originally a Sun-Saturn cult. Many readers will be aware of the growing consensus of opinion among Velikovskians that the only bodies visible in pre-Deluge times were Saturn and the Sun, and that the latter was regarded by the ancients as a manifestation of the former.(1) I propose therefore that the ancients of Eden must have been ...
77. Did Saturn Explode Twice? [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... :1 and the works of David Talbott, we are presented with overwhelming evidence that prior to Noah's flood, Saturn, which was then a star, became a nova. In Kronos III:3 Dwardu Cardona outlines a similar picture involving Saturn but he places Saturn's "flare-up" at the so called dawn of creation which implies that Talbotts "sun of night" would have been an already-spent star. Since Cardona's theory is also well founded, it is time to ask the question: did Saturn explode twice? According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice. In Genesis 1:3 "God said let there be light and there was light. God saw the light was good." (Jerusalem Bible) In Genesis 7:10 "And it came to pass after seven days that the waters of the flood were on the Earth." (King James version) In Kronos V:I (pp. 6 and 7) Velikovsky points out that some words are missing here and suggests that the "seven days" were days of brilliant ...
78. An Answer to "The Danunians and the Velikovsky Revision" [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... reference to the false high places created by the Sons of Judea for steadying the popular fervor. All this is previous to the second half of the 10th century in Palestine and is a fabrication. Archaeologically, epigraphically, and paleographically there is no Hebrew in the Near or Middle East-- nor in Egypt-- before the schism of Roboam. I have seen the first book of Velikovsky, but not Ages in Chaos; nevertheless, I suppose that all his efforts, like so many Exegetes before him, attempt to make Bible events agree with the history and geography of Egypt and the Near and Middle East. I do not understand why nobody asks the question in another way: if the official version is not plausible-- if each Exegete fights to prove his version is better than another's-- if agreement is impossible, is it not because the things in question happened elsewhere? The answer is in a book I am writing, to be called "Where do you come from, Man, my brother?" Jacques Touchet Paris, France ...
79. Radioactivity in the Bible (Vox Populi) [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. VI No. 4 (Summer 1981) Home¦ Issue Contents Vox Populi Radioactivity in the Bible "And they shall make a b-radiation-charging Leyden jar of shittim wood and gold." (1) "Therefore I suggest that now locally stored inactive radiation sources be permanently centrally disposed of." To the Editor of KRONOS: In "Shamir" (KRONOS VI:1, pp. 48-50) Velikovsky offers evidence of Biblical use of radioactive materials and radiation protection. He does not, however, in the article acknowledge any prior writings along this line of thought. May I therefore draw your attention to the fact that the Swede Henry Kjellson (1891-1962) 25 years ago suggested the possibility of such a use. Henry Kjellson was a military aircraft constructor(2) and early had an amateur interest in ancient technology. According to him, passages in several old historical documents, among them the Bible, could be read in a technical way. However, he did not publish his findings until after his retirement. In Forntidens ...
80. Saturn's Flare-ups [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... not the death but the birth of the Saturnian deity. His death and resurrection occurred much later. There is one point concerning which Eggleton is correct- but, obviously, not for the reason he supplied. Saturn, it seems, was disrupted more than once. This had already been suggested, if only in passing, by Harold Tresman and Brendan O'Gheoghan,(14) and proper credit should have been duly given. Even so, it is somewhat peremptory to state, as Eggleton did, that "According to the Bible, Saturn definitely exploded twice" (emphasis mine). For one thing, Saturn, as such, is not even mentioned in the Bible. For another, it is difficult to see how the Bible can be made to assert anything on the strength of missing words. Velikovsky's treatment of these missing words, concerning the light of the seven days,(15) may be a brilliant deduction but it cannot yet be ruled out that these seven days of light were not confused and/or connected with the light of ...
