81. The Sothic Dating of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties [Journals] [Kronos]
... palaeographic evidence is too dubious to serve as the decisive factor in the acceptance of such an important date, and his own conclusion, as we have seen, is that it is "subject to serious doubt". I do not, of course, agree with Long, since some years ago, in a study of the various Egyptian calendars, I attempted to fix the date of the Twelfth Dynasty by combining Edgerton's calculated date for the seventh year of Sesostris III as 1870 BC ca. 6 years with the dates of certain lunar events as given in the civil calendar for the reigns of both Sesostris III and Amenemhet III.(9 ) All the data I could assemble ...
82. The Dresden Codex and Velikovsky's Catastrophe Dates [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 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 ...
83. Letter [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop No. 6 (June 1979) Home | Issue Contents Letter Sir, At first sight, Mike Rowland s thoughts on the Roman Calendar do appear to be a little jumbled. (See WORKSHOP No. 3, p.10 for original article and also letters in WORKSHOP No. 4 and 5 criticising the article - Ed.) The "Year of Confusion" was initiated by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C . as a period of adjustment between the old system and his new Julian calendar. January and February had been added to the calendar at a much earlier date - by Numa, the successor of Romulus (7th century B. ...
... and after a time while this misrepresentation circulated it was finally corrected in Broca's Brain. However, many readers of the first book which is still in circulation will be confronted by this disinformation. Sagan in Broca's Brain only, next introduces new criticism, saying that, "Velikovsky offers no justification in physics for this" 18 change in the calendar. However, a few lines down the page Sagan adds the justification in physics stating, "Velikovsky proposes that these aberrant calendrical conventions reflect real changes in the length of the day, month, and/or year-and that they are evidence of close approaches to the Earth-Moon system by comets, planets and other celestial visitors." 19 ...
85. Open Forum, chaired by David Fairbairn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Now I know you're going to disagree with me but that mathematics is what I cling to. Eugen Gabowitsch: History is not mathematics, it's a model of the past. . . Eric Aitchison: History is dependent on occurrences; occurrences happen in time; time passes and time is measurable. Eugen Gabowitsch: You can create a calendar and retrocalculate for thousands of years, using today's calendar . . . Eric Aitchison: It can only go back to 641 for the Muslim calendar and it can't go back past 700 BC for any other calculations because we think that's when the last cosmic upheaval occurred according to Velikovsky. Janek Pietron: The calendar was changed in the 14th ...
86. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Observatory Charles McDowell I. Introduction To some readers the title of this article may appear offensive. It might imply that the basic purpose of the Temple of Solomon was not worship of God but the collection of astronomical data. My intention, however, is to show that such worship in Solomon's time required certain astronomical skills for the preparation of calendars which in the case of the Jews were rather sophisticated. These skills were so advanced, in fact, we could easily claim that practitioners possessed the necessary knowledge to prepare charts for the navigation of the high seas. Because they were closely associated with the Phoenicians who helped construct the temple, we might also consider that the Phoenicians obtained ...
87. A Calendric View Of Stonehenge [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. VIII No. 2 (Winter 1983) Home | Issue Contents A Calendric View Of Stonehenge Alban Wall Copyright (c ) 1982 by Alban Wall In an earlier paper,(1 ) I presented evidence indicating that the Aubrey circle of holes at Stonehenge was designed to be used as a solar calendar. The present article can be considered an extension of that hypothesis which is here made to include the remaining components of the structure. It will be shown that the functional correlation of these remaining components, in conjunction with the previously discussed Aubrey Circle, combine to form an amazing and sophisticated calendrical device which is more accurate in its basic simplicity than anything ...
88. Astronomical Dating and Calendrics [Journals] [Aeon]
... extensive. Efforts in this direction were concerned with only six documents, of which the two most recent- originating as late as early Christian times- contained statements referring to a so-called "Sothic period" said to have been used by the ancient Egyptians in their reckoning of time. This period is calculated to cover 1460 years of the Julian calendar, and depends on the first heliacal rising of a fixed star which spends part of the year below the horizon. The following discussion of the six documents in question needs to be prefaced by the statement that the ancient Egyptians themselves left no references to a Sothic period or a Sothic calendar of any sort. Concrete support for such a ...
89. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... Marduk = the subjugation of that chaos prior to the establishment of universal order. After Marduk has killed Tiamat he proceeds to split her body into two parts. From one half he fashions the vault of heaven and from the other the solid earth. He then fixed the order and the courses of the various heavenly bodies, ordaining the yearly calendar and the monthly phases of the moon. Finally, he created man for the service of the gods, and the world takes on more or less its present form. It seems to me, then, that since this battle is part of a creation epic and since it takes place prior to the very creation of man, it ...
90. Star Names: Their Lore and Meaning [Books]
... of Heaven, ploughed by the heavenly Directing Bull, our Taurus, which from about 3880 to about 1730 B.C . was first of the twelve. Although our knowledge of that country's astronomy is as yet limited, it is certain that the Akkadian names of the months were intimately connected with the divisions of this great circle; the calendar probably being taken from the stars about 2000 B.C ., according to Professor Archibald Henry Sayce, of Oxford. Thence it passed to the Jews through Assyria and Aramaea, as the identity of its titles in those countries indicates; and the eleven, or twelve, signs for a time became with that people objects of idolatrous ...
