82. Homeland for Heroes [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... way home. They found as desolate country, where there was not one tree to cast a shadow, a country of ruins and malarial marshes. They drained the marshes, and the first generation of pioneers succumbed to malaria. They planted among the rocks and on the dunes, and a nation that had been condemned to ghettoes for centuries in a few decades became a rural population performing miracles in agriculture unattained anywhere else. They also wrought the miracle, of reviving the language of the Prophets, and made the Hebrew of the Bible the tongue of their daily lives. They did not go to Palestine seeking their fortune, as the pioneers of other countries and the pioneers who opened the American West. Boys and girls left universities and the capitals of Europe to become farmers in the marshes of Galilee, in the pit that is the valley of the Dead Sea, the hottest spot on earth, and in the desert of the Negev, where nothing but dusty cactus grows.*** Whoever steps on the soil of Palestine is aware that in that ...

84. GODS FIRE: CONCLUSION [Quantavolution Website]
... leading his flock and saw a bush that was alight and not reduced to ashes, and said to himself: "I will turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt." [1 This kind of "why" stood behind my undertaking this book and has, I hope, conveyed my reader rewardingly through its pages. The work is now finished, with its details fitted into its major parts and there assembled into the whole. Some 3500 years ago, the area subject to the Bible came under an extra-terrestrial force, apparently a great comet, which, amidst the destruction that it wrought, set into motion the human characters whom we have come to know well: Moses, the Pharaoh, Aaron, and especially the Israelites, who were shaped into a chosen people. The experiences of this people contained the material of a great and true story of disaster and survival. The story centers upon a scientific genius- Moses- and a new god- Yahweh. Yahweh is recognized as a great comet, as ...
85. THE DEVINE SUCCESSION: PART I. THEOMACHY: CHAPTER FIVE: LEGENDS AND SCRIPTURE [Quantavolution Website]
... , despite its prehistoric origins. Critias, his protagonist, is given to claim repeatedly that he heard and learned the story from his grandfather as a true and exact account. Significantly, to a modern mnemologist, Critias declared that although he had forgotten much of what he had heard of the previous day's discussions, he had forgotten none of what he had learned as a child about Atlantis. The Atlantis story is generally disbelieved, yet if an educated unbeliever were to compare it with the story of the Deluge of Noah in the Bible, it would appear to be just as (im) plausible. It is no less specific. The "author" of one is Plato, of the other, Moses; who is more reliable? True, Atlantis is no longer to be found, above or below the sea, and therefore presumed not to have sunk; but the flood that climbed to great heights all over the Near East has vanished, too. Objectively, one would have to be as skeptical (and no more so) about the one ...
86. Were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom? (Letter) [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom?" (C&AH, X/2), and the Exodus and Conquest. Although I was long convinced about the revised chronology, I now believe it is better to use the conventional chronology, especially in order to clarify these themes. Abraham The historical background of Abraham's time does not fit the First Dynasty (c. 3050-2859 B.C.). The time also is much too long from then to the conquest of Canaan (c. 1200 B.C.). From the Bible we do not learn the important information that Abraham taught the Egyptians mathematics and astronomy. How could Josephus know these unknown things? He lived about 3000 years after the First Dynasty. Abraham's historical background better fits the nineteenth century in Mesopotamia. Joseph In this case it must also be said that Joseph's historical background does not fit the Old Kingdom (Dynasties 3-6, c. 2705-2200 B.C.). Is it possible to identify Joseph with Im-hotep? All we know about Im-hotep and his time is that he was an Egyptian, ...
87. Khima And Kesil [Kronos $]
... violent acts to which the Earth was once subjected: "... Who shut up the sea with doors [barriers when it brake forth...." Who could command the dawn "that it might take hold of the ends of the earth, that the wicked might be shaken out of it." The Lord asks Job: "Canst thou bind the chains (fetters) of Khima or loosen the reins of Kesil? Canst thou lead forth the Mazzaroth in its season...?" The Cambridge Bible wonders at the meaning of this passage. Like the King James version it translates Pleiades for Khima, and Orion for Kesil. Mazzaroth is left untranslated. In Amos (5:8) once more Khima and Kesil are mentioned in a verse that reveals the great acts of the Lord who "maketh Khima and Kesil, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them upon the face of the earth.. ...
88. GODS FIRE: [Quantavolution Website]
... with connotations of both "horn" and "ray of light" may be intended, inasmuch as the phenomenon was capable of giving both impressions, and people were quite sensitive to "horns" in this aftermath of the revolt of the Golden Calf. Ruth Mellinkoffs enchanting study of The Horned Moses concludes that St. Jerome's translation of Exodus 34: 29 as 'horned' appears "in keeping with the context and meaning of 'horned' in the ancient world as well as the metaphorical meaning of 'horn' and 'horned' in the Bible. It meant strength, honor, victory, power, divinity, kingship, and salvation..." The scholar-theologians of the Church saw them as "horns of light, or light emanating in the manner of a horn"- an interpretation first suggested by Rashi, the famous eleventh-century Jewish commentator. [8 Moses has unusual ways of conducting, storing, and discharging electricity. Or was there so much of a voltage gradient as he descended that he discharged static electricity in coming down? As mountaineers have testified, ...
89. Jericho [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IX:2 (July 1987) Home¦ Issue Contents Jericho Michael S. Sanders Jericho, The City of the Palms of the Bible, lies some seven miles west of the river Jordan, 300 meters below sea level. While the small Arab town of el Riha is unprepossessing, there is no doubt that the town of antiquity which commands the steep ascent to the highlands of the interior was a place of strategic importance to those who occupied it. Jericho had been a favorite winter resort of Herod in Roman times, but he did not build on the old town, which is clearly identifiable, and so, unlike some sites in Palestine, there is no question that the place is accepted by all as the Jericho of the Bible. It is surely here that any questions regarding the historicity of the Bible story can be answered. The Bible gives clear indications as to what happened to the ancient city, and the archaeological remains were reasonably intact and identifiable. It should be an easy task to match the two ...
90. Shoshenq and Shishak: A Case of Mistaken Identity [SIS C&C Review $]
... shoulders surmounting a name-ring. Five rows of captives are led by each figure, the lower rows being badly damaged. An eleventh row, which extended along the base of the scene to the right of the centre, is almost entirely lost. Although there were originally over 150 name-rings, the number of places listed was somewhat less than this, since some names occupy two (occasionally even three) rings. A discussion of the names which can still be read, and their identification (sometimes speculative) with places known from the Bible or other texts, can be found in Kitchen's very full treatment [7. Although it was suggested in the late 19th century that Shoshenq's list may have been compiled artificially from those left by his predecessors, it is now clear that this is not the case. "In point of fact, Shoshenq's list is the most original and non-derivative list in the whole corpus of 40 or 50 assorted lists, having runs of names attested nowhere else in these.... The orthography of Shoshenq's list also distinguishes it sharply from ...
