251. Chapter 13 Scythian Princes in the Royal Tombs of Ur [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... near them.109 If the Scythians disdained the "lowly ass," as Cardona claims, then they did so several centuries prior to the time when this prejudice came into vogue. Nevertheless, the question at hand is: were the equides seen on the Royal Standard at Ur onagers (wild Asiatic asses), ponies, mules (crosses between horses and asses) or donkeys (domesticated African asses)? Cardona forthrightly claims to know that the equides displayed on the Royal Standard (Figure 7) are "onagers." Again, as with so many of his statements, he has given no citation, no evidence, only his bald assertion that this is a fact ...
252. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... cap disappeared, it left behind a wall of lakes and torrential rivers emptying these lakes right across this region. The MacKenzie River flowing north was emptying Lake McConnell which stretched south almost to Lake Agassiz which stretched far south into the United States and emptied into the Minnesota River. And clearly between these two giant lakes, water flowed making land crossing impossible for thousands of years.123 These lakes may well have survived well into the hipsithermal for we are also informed that "experts disagree about...[the] dates" these lakes lasted. Moving the date of the near final destruction of almost all of the megafauna to the end of the hipsithermal clearly explains a great ...
253. The Papyrus Ipuwer, Egyptian Version Of The Plagues - A New Perspective [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... I of the drama: the devastation of Egypt and the escape of the Israelites at the hand of the Lord; and that Ipuwer described Act II: the conquest of Egypt by the Hyksos on the heels of the Exodus. Velikovsky identified the Hyksos as the Biblical Amalekites(3 ) whom the Israelites battled in the desert at Rephidim after crossing the Red Sea.(4 ) That provides a further link between the two accounts. Yet, by focusing on Velikovsky's belief that it was an Egyptian version of the plagues, we have missed entirely the true meaning of the Admonitions and its importance to the history of the world's literature. And the Papyrus, though important to the ...
254. Abimilki, Azaru and Nikmed in the El-Amarna Correspondence and the Assyrian Annals [Journals] [Kronos]
... " were not western ports at all; Feldman has presented a conclusion of Velikovsky's argument as if it were a known fact. The campaign of Shalmaneser III's fourth year is described in three of his inscriptions, and each gives us certain evidence of the whereabouts of the cities in question. On the Black Obelisk, (18) Shalmaneser records crossing Mount Kullar and descending into the land of Zamua where the cities lay. Another inscription from Nimrud gives much the same information as the Black Obelisk, mentioning Mount Kullar and the land of Zamua.(19) The Monolith Inscription describes how Shalmaneser marched against Mazamua and, taking the pass into the land of Bunagish, to the " ...
255. Quantalism: The Big Picture [Journals] [Aeon]
... genetically very close to our nearest phylogenetic kinsmen, the great apes, we are phenotypically very unlike them. The environmental zigzag evident in a hominid detour from Miocene forests through Pliocene waters to Pleistocene savannas exhibits striking evolutionary discontinuity. In this sense, the aquatic hypothesis is highly compatible with the theory of quantalism. Southeast Asians prepare for a raft crossing to the Australian islands. "If our Pliocene ancestors were habitual swimmers, they probably enjoyed riding on logs and other floating debris..." Could this have led to oceanic navigation as early as the Pleistocene? (Illustration by Gunnar Thompson.) Polynesian sea voyagers- crossing the vast Pacific in the flimsiest of boats. " ...
256. Sacral vs. Secular Man [Books] [de Grazia books]
... the same time a denial of the cosmic supernatural. Words merge into symbols, which may be words, pictures, displays, but also contain the impact of sets of words, without integration with the grammar of the language. A symbol contains a stimulus to arrive at an attitude or predisposition of mind or behavior. The symbol of the cross has been found throughout the world from the time of the earliest gods up to the present, denoting the chief god or a reference and extension of the god. Wherever a cross occurs, the supernatural does as well; in the ancient world, stones of Hermes were put up at crossroads. Many symbols are likewise ancient. Some ...
257. The Nature and Origin of Comets and the Evolution of Celestial Bodies (Part I) [Journals] [Kronos]
... killer which discharges when a bug enters the area between anode and cathode. 46. The capacitor that forms with the Sun in its center and nebular ion cloud surrounding it (past the orbit of Pluto) will have surfaces of electrical equipotential between cathode and anode. It is now known that the second charging process depends on the comet nucleus crossing the surfaces of equipotential. As the comet nucleus crosses the equipotential surfaces, it must continually adopt the potential of space that it enters. This also aids in the electrical breakdown of the capacitor, initiating the discharge between Sun and nebular ion cloud which is observable as the comet tail and, occasionally, the sunward spike. It is ...
258. The Military Strategy of Sheshonq/Shishak in Palestine [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of the coastal plain, over the central ridge, and down into the Jordan Valley again. By the time the fifth line takes up, the Egyptians have attacked Penuel in the Jabbok river valley and then returned to the ford of the river at Adam in the Jordan Valley. The first site mentioned in this line going west after the crossing of the Jordan river at Adam is DMRM (no. 57). This has been taken as a reference to Zemaraim in Benjamin (Joshua 18:22). This seems unlikely because of the small and insignificant nature of that place and because such a location would have taken the course of Sheshonq's campaign west of the Jordan quite ...
259. Saturn: In Myth and Religion [Journals] [Kronos]
... Saturn] wandered without a stable support."(32) Personally, I do not know what sources Talbott had in mind when he suggested this former wandering of Saturn. As far as I can determine, the Saturnian deity seems to have been fixed in his place from as far back as humankind can remember. 6. The Ringed Cross At some point in its celestial career, Saturn ensconced itself within a system of rings. These were not the rings which presently encircle the planet. If I read the myths correctly, there was first one ring which later split into three and finally evolved into a sevenfold structure. In his major work, Talbott described only one Saturnian ...
