31. A Catastrophic Calendar [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: Chaos and Creation, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER FOUR A Catastrophic Calendar If nature and human nature were catastrophized by events of the past 14,000 years, a calendar of the events becomes a practical necessity. Hence we conjecture that from an original primeval chaos to the world of A.D . 2,000, the human race and its natural environment passed through eight phases. They are posted on the adjoining chart, Figure 7. The set of cases is too small for statistical treatment, but, for heuristic purposes, the typical phase may be said to have begun in general natural destruction, passed through a period of recovery ...
32. The Mosaic Calendar [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home | Issue Contents The Mosaic Calendar Lisa Liel, from Efrat, Israel, writes: I'm not quite sure what to make of Eric Aitchison's paper on the Mosaic calendar. [7 ] Some of the things I would comment on are minor, others are major. Let me just go through them all and then sum up at the end. Aitchison states: "The Book of Leviticus contains a rambling set of instructions..." [8 ] Here, the term gratuitous comes to mind. The word "rambling" adds nothing to Aitchison's thesis. It may be his personal opinion, but if the ...
33. The Astronomical Basis of Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... heliacal rising. We find in the literature that such-and-such an object, for example the star Sothis, "rose heliacally"; and so what I want to do first of all is to get fixed in our minds what is meant by the heliacal rising of an object. We can then go on to consider the distinction between the two calendars that are of value in a discussion of the Great Year. One of these calendars is the Egyptian calendar of 360+ 5 days, adding up, of course, to 365 days. The second calendar is what one might call the seasonal calendar the "real" calendar if you like, which goes from Winter through Spring, ...
34. Chapter XXVII: The Calendar and its Revision [Books]
... Chapter XXVII The Calendar and its Revision IN the last chapter the so-called Sothic cycle was discussed, and dates of the commencement of the successive cycles were suggested. These dates were arrived at by taking the very simplest way of writing a calendar in pre-temple times, and using the calendar inscriptions in the most natural way. The dates for the coincidence of the heliacal rising of Sirius and the 1st Thoth of the vague year at, or near, the solstice, were 270 B.C . 1728 B.C . 3192 B.C . Here, in limine, we meet with a difficulty which, if it cannot be explained, evidently proves that the Egyptians did ...
35. The Changed Calendar: Evidence for a Neat Year of 365 Days [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1995 (Vol XVII) "Proceedings of the SIS 1995 Braziers College Conference" Home | Issue Contents The Changed Calendar: Evidence for a Neat Year of 365 Days Eric Aitchison On such an auspicious weekend as this, one should not contemplate an attack on the good Doctor. My paper in this short session should be seen as a disagreement, not with his argument for a calendar change, but rather as a revision to the quantum of that change. Within his published works Dr Velikovsky provided an exceptional amount of evidence pertaining to his calendric change of 5 ¼ days. However, amongst the evidence available to prove his point I think ...
... ... In geology, some but by no means all criticisms of the radiocarbon dates are based upon inferences concerning the behaviour of the presently nonexistent ice sheet. There is no way of proving or disproving assumptions concerning the speed of advance or retreat of the ice, the degree of precision of a varve record and its correlation with the calendar, or the significance of the modification in the vegetation. ' Has any one who holds to the view that such long periods were required for minor degrees of cultural progress ever tried to make an arrowhead out of flint, even given all the advantage of modern hand tools? It is absurd to presume that, once the art of ...
37. Sothic Dating Redux (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... is Egyptian 3m, a term used as early as the Old Kingdom. It is translated in the Wörterbuch and by other editors of Ebers as "Asiatic". A Jew may be an Asiatic but not all Asiatics are Jews. Rather than continue in this point by point fashion I propose to set forth a few observations on the Egyptian calendar system which if coupled with a thorough reading of my Calendars and my article "Sothic Dates and Calendar Adjustment'" (Revue d'Egyptologie 9, pp. 101-08) will clear up, I feel sure, many problems for the uninitiated. A. The only Egyptian calendar governed by the heliacal rising of Sirius, prt Spdt, was ...
... of Venus and eight years of 365 days was, according to Knapp, disregarded by the Egyptians for simplification. In Isagoge of Geminus it is said expressly that the festival of Isis goes around the seasons in 1,460 years.[5 ] We can elaborate this thesis further and prove that Venus played the decisive role in the Egyptian calendar in the period following the seventh century. Geminus' source was Eratosthenes, who lived in the third century before the present era and was employed by King Ptolemy III Euergetes in his library in Alexandria. In the Canopus Decree, edited under the same king, it is said that the feast of the star of Isis and other feasts ...
39. Briefing [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 1 (May 1989) Home | Issue Contents Briefing Death Knell for Sothic Dating source: Discussions in Egyptology 13 (1989), pp. 79-88 Nel Weggelaar and Chris Kort's The Calendar Reforms of Ancient Egypt' is a paper which challenges R. A. Parker's widely accepted thesis that the Egyptians used a 365 day calendar throughout most of their history. They note that there is little positive evidence in favour of Parker's contention: for the Old Kingdom we have only two inscriptions mentioning the five days upon the year'. This they argue does not necessarily mean five epagomenal days: an alternative explanation could be found within a ...
40. The Dark Ages hiatus: a response to Clark Whelton [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Dark Ages hiatus: a response to Clark Whelton by Steve Mitchell Summary The theory proposed by Illig and others that centuries are missing from the middle of the first millennium AD is due to their misunderstanding of the Gregorian calendar reform and not some astronomical miscalculation. In choosing to delete 10 days from the calendar, Pope Gregory made a political decision and not a scientific one. The article shows how the correct number of days were actually calculated and the thinking behind Gregory's choice not to push for the correct' answer. It goes on to show how the hiatus in the Dark ...
