... deceased's heir and priests, in their earthly performance of the Opening of the Mouth ceremony, matched what had happened in the polar sky so many millennia previous. To support this con-tention we will examine particular aspects of the Opening of the Mouth ceremony in as much detail as space allows. The con-nections to the age of Saturn and the polar column will become readily apparent. Later, when we examine the actual words of the mythical texts (the invocations and spells), these relationships will be understood to be a logical and natural result of the eye-witnessed interplay between the earliest gods- the gods who, in actuality, were the planets we call Saturn, Venus and Mars. ...

... . The goddess Hera says: "The gods are hard to look upon in their full brightness." [3 ]. The soldiers of Alexander the Great were blinded when they invaded the temple of Demeter at Miletus. Anchises was blinded by a thunderbolt for boasting of his union with Aphrodite. When Hannibal wished to carry off a golden column from Juno's temple at Lacinium, he tested it with a drill and did find it solid gold, but then had a dream in which he was warned that if he removed the column he would lose the sight of his good eye. He had an image of a calf made out of the gold dust, and set it on ...

... strata group beneath Hellenism. Correspondingly, I have returned to just four major imperial periods known between the Chalcolithic and Hellenism in antiquity. Modern Assyriology's twelve imperial periods are due to a triplication of three contemporary strata, in three different sites, dated by three different chronology schemes: (i ) Bible fundamentalist (ii) pseudo-astronomical Sothic (middle column), and (iii) ancient Greek historiographical. Only the Greek column periods in the following overview are real. In modern Assyriology, they are the ones lacking archaeology and, therefore, were discarded between 1988 and 994. The middle column provides the right column with hard evidence for Northern Mesopotamia whereas the Biblical column provides the Greek ...

... significance: it conforms to cometary images in general; it connects the comet with the "golden calf to come;" it puts Yahweh into the driver's seat of the cometary chariot, and it parallels the Greek myth of Phaeton, searing the world from his solar chariot. But the most powerful and exercised of cometary references is the towering column of smoke and fire that was first before and then behind the Israelites as they crossed into the desert. In ancient history and in folklore comets are often "hairy" and " 'smoking" stars. I have already quoted this apparition of the lord that had led them from the beginning; it "did not depart from before ...

145. Cosmic and Terrestrial Lightning [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Cometary Venus, according to Velikovsky's reconstruction, encountered the Earth in the spring of 1453 B.C . and followed roughly its orbit for some days. The comet with its millions of miles of tail appeared and reappeared as the Earth continued with interruptions its rotation. On the second approach, after six days had passed, a gigantic column towered into the sky, a pillar of smoke by day and of fire by night, as Exodus 14:19 describes it. This stage was accompanied by violent and incessant discharges between the atmosphere of the tail and the terrestrial atmosphere. When the tidal waves rose to their highest point, and the seas were torn apart, a ...

... shoulders. (55) In addition to Heracles and Nergal-Melqart, other ancient war-gods identifiable with the red planet were also associated with the World Pillar. (56) The Latin war-god Mars, to take but one of numerous examples, was identified with the Saxon god Irmin who, under the name of Irminsul, was worshipped as the universal column, held to support heaven. (57) Yet the Latin war-god was else-where identified with Heracles. (58) Scholars investigating the origins of sacred symbols have not failed to notice the intimate relation between the red planet and ancient conceptions of the World Pillar. Thus, in A Dictionary of Symbols, Cirlot reports that: "The ...

... . The configuration reached its greatest brilliance when the crescent was directly below Saturn (at midnight). In the original language of the daily cycle this was the to diminish as it rose to the right of Saturn, reaching its weakest point as it arched above Saturn, the archaic "night." From the viewer's northern horizon a great column of light rose toward Saturn along the polar axis, looking very much like a pillar holding aloft both the planet and the celestial enclosure. The small orb at the apex of the column was the reddish planet Mars, the heaven-sustaining giant and warrior-hero of global myth. Spiralling out from the polar axis was a turquoise stream of gas or ...

148. Artificially Structured Biblical Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... shown above as a cabbalistic 5 years. The above list is taken from II Chronicles, a book thought to have been compiled by Ezra at about 460 BC. It represents the kings of Judah from the death of Solomon to the Babylonian exile. No chronological details have been derived from any other source except Luke's generation list. The 1st column shows the generation count, the 3rd gives the ages of the kings on accession, the 4th has the reign lengths and the 5th their dates. It is a dual column system of chronology similar to the one employed by Manetho in his Aegyptiaca'. The column of ages has a dual chronological purpose, a factor demonstrated by its ...

... odd on the right should not be misleading. This is because January 1, our New Year's Day, occurs at the midpoint of the stroke (or sequence) of conjunctions. Were our New Year's Day to occur any time between April 1 and September 30 (and outside the ancient conjunction cycle), all of the years in both columns of both Tables I and II would be odd-numbered, going hack uniformly from 701 B.C .

... related to Yahweh, but the text uses feminine constructions. There are some crude Iron Age inscriptions from the Negev site of Kuntillet Ajrud which are generally interpreted as associating Yahweh with a female deity; this may offer another potential derivation. The temple complex in which the stone inscription was found includes the temple itself, with a 15m long eight columned hall and store rooms along the sides, and a large courtyard surrounded by porticos. The temple is part of Strata IC-IB, dated by the authors to the 7th century BC and thought to include the later Assyrian occupation and a succeeding phase of Egyptian domination following Assyrian withdrawal in the late 7th century, and ending with total destruction by ...
