231. Implications for Chronology if Certain 'Historical' Characters are Mythological [Journals] [SIS Review]
... photo: T. Palmer) Biblical history' fares no better when we turn to the career of Moses. I have elsewhere called attention to the numerous mythical elements in his biography . Suffice it to say that there is scarcely a report about the old fellow that doesn't have the ring of myth about it. Moses' crossing through the Sea of Passage, far from being an historical account of the parting of terrestrial waters (whether of the Cecil B. DeMille or Worlds in Collision variety) is best understood as a variation on the Symplegades motif, a universal mythological theme if ever there was one. This motif is most familiar from Apollonius' story of ...
232. Venus. Supplement: Astronomy And Chronology Ch.3 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... this period. When east of the sun, Venus is the evening star; when west of the sun, it is the morning star. Venus revolves around the sun in 224.7 terrestrial days. However, observed from the earth, which revolves on a larger orbit and at lower speed in the same direction, Venus returns to cross the line drawn from the sun to the earth once in about 584 days.[2 ] This is called the synodical year of Venus. Eight terrestrial years approximate five synodical years of Venus, the difference being approximately one day in four years. Five synodical revolutions of Venus equal 2,919.6 days;[3 ] ...
233. El-Hiba Revisited [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The mudbrick wall of Menkheperre The temple of "Amun of the Crag" built by Shoshenq I Topographic map of el-Hiba (after Wenke, 1980) The ferryman was not of a mind to take us directly to a mooring place alongside the tell, so we were bundled out of the crowded vessel about half a mile to the south. Crossing the rich green fields of a local farm we eventually reached the desert edge and gained our first clear view of the fortress-mound rising up out of the sandy plain to the north. As we approached the site on foot the great enclosure wall loomed large before us, stretching off into the distance. This was the feature of the site ...
234. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... be Sinai'. The same subject was also discussed by Emmet Sweeney in an article titled Horeb, the Mountain of God' (C &CR 2004:2 /C &CW 2004:3 , pp. 30-31). However, there is a potentially important anomaly in Wyatt's findings. He identified the point at which the Israelites crossed the Gulf of Aqaba (an arm of the Red Sea) as Neweiba, currently a coastal resort on the west, or Sinai side of the gulf, where there is a possible 8 mile crossing to the opposite shore (in Midian, not far from Jebel el-Lawz). He instituted diving operations off Nuweiba and promptly found that ...
235. The Photosphere: Is It the Top or the Bottom of the Phenomenon We Call the Sun? [Journals] [Kronos]
... of negative charges in one direction and positive charges in the other direction constitutes a drift current - the entire electric current of the discharge through the plasma. To maintain a steady discharge, the anode must collect an uninterrupted stream of electrons whose electric current, or flow of charge per unit time, equals the total drift current in the full cross section of the discharge plasma. (For purposes of the present hypothesis, the discharge "cross-section" may be thought of as a closed, spherical surface in space, outside the Sun at some distance beyond the reach of distinctly "anode" phenomena; say, arbitrarily, at perhaps a few solar radii from the photosphere.) ...
236. The Miracles of the Exodus by Colin Humphries and The Moses Legacy by Graham Phillips (Book reviews) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... peninsular only goes back to the 3rd century AD, when groups of Christian monks inhabited the region, eager to experience the wilderness. One of these groups claimed a particular mountain was Sinai, and somewhat later, in the time of the emperor Justinian, St Catherine's monastery was built, perched on the mountain side. Humphries explanation for the crossing of the Jordan involves an ordinary earthquake and landslip. The Jordan lies on a fault line and earthquakes are recorded in 1927, 1906, 1834, 1546, 1534, 1267 and 1160 AD. However, we may note that Moe Mandelkehr, in C&C Review ( 'Part Two: The Geological Evidence'), claims ...
237. The Levites and the Revolts [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of working age would be the most anxious to leave. But when the pursuing Egyptian army was espied, many, especially of the Egyptians and physically weaker elements, would have deserted and fled to all quarters during the long bright night. A drop of some 10,000 persons would be expected at this critical point. Next came the crossing. Here the legends, as well as logic, would dictate another serious loss, perhaps another 10,000.[5 ] The panic would be extreme, the time very short, the waters appearing from all quarters of the compass in cross-tides, the muck deep in places, exhaustion general. The many days of march between ...
238. Cosmic Winter [Articles]
... diagram is just off. The orbit, if you like, embraces the picture. The Taurid stream then reaches out to almost as far as Jupiter. And so we have a bulk of material circulating in this very, very broad stream. It takes a couple of months, at both intersections with the Earth's orbit, for us to cross. And there it is at the top at the beginning of November, and coming away from the sun at the bottom at the end of June. If I might just put the picture of the fireballs back on which you were looking at yesterday, we'll try and get it all onto the screen, and I'm going to leave ...
239. Velikovsky: The Open Minded Approach [Journals] [SIS Review]
... (1 ) This picture he drew from them was that around 1500 BC the Earth came into disastrous conflict with the planet Venus - then on an elliptical orbit and with a tremendous cometary tail after originating by fission from Jupiter at a considerably earlier date. The phenomena caused by this catastrophe caused the Biblical miracles of the ten plagues, the crossing of the Red Sea and the years in the Wilderness and were recorded in different contexts around the world. 52 years later Venus's elliptical orbit caused another set of disasters including the long day of Joshua. Thereafter, for over 600 years Venus dominated the night sky and was worshipped and feared as the Queen of Heaven who every 50-odd years ...
240. Kronos, Minos, and the Celestial Labyrinth [Journals] [Kronos]
... in Mexico. Perhaps for the purpose of keeping up the number of his rain-dwarfs, children were constantly sacrificed to him."(28) These rites, like those associated with Moloch, were also cannibalistic .( 28a) Perhaps the most notorious of these child-sacrifices were those found in the worship of the Biblical ogre, Moloch. Frank Cross, the noted Biblical scholar, shows that rites of a Molochian type were practiced throughout the ancient world. He concludes: "Diodorus Siculus specifically observes that the cult of human sacrifice was limited to worship of Kronos, that is, of El, and alludes to the myth of El's sacrifice of his own children . . . An ...
