111. Egyptian Monumental Evidence [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... 'Di Die Natale'. Egyptologists have used Censorinus to support the concept that the Egyptians had a 'Sothic cycle' and as the source of the 138 AD date from which they claim to be able to calculate near absolute 'star dates' for for Sesostris (III) and two '18th Dynasty' kings. However, Censorinus in 'Die Di Natale' made it quite clear, citing Varro (another respected Roman scholar) as authority, that nothing was known of mankind's history before around 1600 BC. Yet Censorinus described reforms in the Egyptian calendar leading to a 365 day calendar and gave the names of the kings in whose reigns the various reforms were made. Obviously, he was talking about calendar reforms made after 1600 BC, since otherwise his statement about the lack of knowledge of mankind's history before 1600 BC would make no sense. Hence, read in context, Censorinus refutes other basic assumptions used to derive 'star dates'. Since the Pyramid Texts evidence use of a 365 day calendar, one can deduce from Censorinus that the pyramids were built after 1600 BC. ...

113. Sirius and Saturn [SIS C&C Review $]
... Sirius and Saturn by Lynn E. Rose Lynn F. Rose received both his BA in Ancient History and Classical Languages (majoring in Greek) and his MA in Philosophy from Ohio State University. He received his PhD in Philosophy from the University of Pennsylvania. He taught ancient philosophy for 35 years at the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he is now Emeritus Professor of Philosophy. He has published two books: Aristotle's Syllogistic (1969) and Sun, Moon, and Soth is: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt (1999). He is also the author of numerous articles on Greek philosophy. ancient calendars and archaeoastronomy. Summary A more careful reading of the Canopus Decree enables us to retrocalculate Sothic dates much more precisely than ever before. Middle Kingdom lunar documents fail to fit in the second millennium but they do fit in the 4th century, with the IIII prt 16 heliacal rising of Sirius in -394. My 'modified-Philolaos' model (1979) remains viable today: Earth once orbited Saturn, always keeping the same ...
114. Focus [SIS C&C Review $]
... new approach to the question of Sothic dating and Egyptian chronology. While he agrees with many of Velikovsky's criticisms about conventional calculations for, and use of, Sothic data, Fermor believes that such valuable calendric material must not be ignored, and that careful re-evaluation of the evidence, including allowance for possible catastrophes during the period in question, might result in a new astronomical chronology for Egypt based on the Sothic data and compatible with a revised chronology. He started from the proposition that in the 3rd century BC the Egyptians had a 365-day calendar although the natural year was 365 days. In 26 BC the Julian calendar of 365 days was introduced into Egypt but the Alexandrian calendar of 365 days remained in use. By AD 139 there was a discrepancy of 41 days between the Julian and Alexandrian calendars for the date of 1 Thot, the Egyptian New Year's Day. In 165 years, there had been a shift of day a year, as one would expect. On 1 Thot AD 139 the star Sirius rose heliacally; in 238 BC this event occurred on 1 ...
115. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Velikovsky's theses in 'Peoples of the Sea' and Ramses II in the face of the so-called 'hard evidence' of the revisionist theories.- Ed. Dear Sir, I note that increasing reliance is being placed on 23rd March 687 B.C. as a landmark in the Chronology of Catastrophes. Has anybody been able to check the reliability of this dating? Dr. Velikovsky appears only to have cited a single reference to it, without very much indication as to its authenticity, and any ancient date expressed solely in terms of our modern calendar needs at least some qualification to make it truly meaningful. MICHAEL READE Reading Dear Sir, In WORKSHOP No. 6, page 9, Nel Kluitman suggests that I have not understood the character of fairytales insofar as in my article on 'Angels and Catastrophism' in WORKSHOP No. 4, I maintained that a fundamentalist interpretation of the bible, which is tantamount to a lack of interpretation, is nothing more than a belief in the validity of fairy tales. Nel Kluitman is clearly at pains to defend the fundamentalist view on the ...
116. Letters [SIS C&C Review $]
... 7th year- 8/612 to 7/613- when counted from 8/606, non-accession year dating. Jehu's 28 year reign should therefore end in 7/634 and Aaronson's figure of 1/636 represents 30 years. To account for the discrepancy 'because of the delay between Jehu's coup and his entry into Samaria' (p. 6) leaves a hiatus in the chronology which is contradicted by the synchronism 2 Kings 12:1. That Aaronson's chronology fits the jubilee cycle mentioned by Prasher is hardly surprising. 'The calendar used is the LM (Liytziyat Mitzrayim or from the Exodus) calendar. The year 1 LM begins on the first of Nisan 1476 BCE' (p. 4). Stenring (The Enclosed Garden, 1965), calculated that the Jubilees were synchronised with the Seleucid Era so that the retroactive date of a sabbatical year fell in 1455 BC calculated with 50 year jubilees as suggested by Leviticus 25:8-13 and 2 Kings 19.28-29 (p. 60). It is not clear from Stenring's presentation whether this date represented the ...
117. The Dresden Codex and Velikovsky's Catastrophe Dates [SIS C&C Review $]
... known as the Paris, Madrid and Dresden Codices, were written on pages of the inner bark of fig trees, joined continuously and folded together like a screen. A heavy sizing of calcium carbonate prevented pages of codices later discovered in humid tombs from being separated without destruction of the writing. In 1971 a fourth codex in reasonable condition appeared in the Grolier Library in New York. This Grolier Codex, now in Mexico where it belongs, has been available to scholars long enough to be authenticated, and to contribute the first perpetual calendar of the phases of Venus, but not long enough to be the subject of broad independent studies. The codices contain pictures, glyphs, and extensive numerical tables. The difficulty of deciphering the glyphs is compounded by several factors. Most hieroglyphic texts are short, and the context obscure. The ancient Maya language differed in some ways from the modern tongue, and the available dictionaries are inadequate. Time has rendered many glyphs illegible, and some in good condition are ambiguous because of the difference between stylised sculptured glyphs and some written ...
118. Eclipses in ancient history [Maverick Science Website]
... The definitive source in this field is the recently published book by F.R. Stephenson, Historical Eclipses and the Earth's Rotation (Cambridge, 1997). Of the numerous observations of solar and lunar eclipses preserved from the Middle Ages, Stephenson writes that: "In most cases, the date is accurately reported and the precise place of observation is known." (p. 376) Most important, however, is the fact that the majority of these reports agree with modern retrocalculations: "Most recorded dates when converted to the Julian calendar (or the Gregorian calendar from AD 1582) are in exact accord with the tabular dates of eclipses which according to calculation were large in Europe." (p. 379) A few specific examples will illustrate the level of agreement. We have a number of detailed records of the eclipse of August 2 nd ,1133 from different parts of Europe. The following report comes from a monastery in Germany: "In the year of the Incarnation of our Lord 1133 on the 4 th day before the Nones of August ( ...
119. The Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia"" [Kronos $]
... which became the standard work for a whole generation of Egyptologists. In an annex, the "Chronological Table of Kings," the dates for the Pharaohs of the XIIth Dynasty and part of those of the XVIIIth Dynasty-- including dates for Hatshepsut and Thutmose III-- have asterisks added to them to show that they "are astronomically fixed".(7) But the problem continued to haunt scientists. Weill (1926) was followed by Neugebauer (1938), who published an important and provocative study of the Egyptian calendar,(8) and Winlock (1940), who seriously doubted the validity of the Sothic theory. "The ancient Egyptians, from the Old Kingdom to the Roman period, have not left a single trace of such a fixed calendar. Out of the thousands which have survived from dynastic Egypt not one document gives equivalent dates in the known 'wandering' year and the hypothetical 'fixed' year. Furthermore, by the time that relations with the outside world were such as to result in unprejudiced foreign evidence on the customs of ...
