101. Catastrophes in the Early Bronze Age (Letter) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Age Paul Andrews Editor, C&AH: I believe there were many catastrophes in the Early Bronze Age. In the first place there was a very significant disaster at the end of the Chalcolithic Period and the beginning of the Early Bronze. Every area- whether it was Anatolia, Mesopotamia, the Holy Land, or Egypt- suffered destructions and witnessed migrations. At the end of Early Bronze I too a catastrophe was experienced. It is even theorized that a major flood swept Mesopotamia, causing the inhabitants to confuse it with the much earlier Flood of Noah. There was also a small catastrophe attending the end of Early Bronze II, which caused the Khirbet Kerak people to ...
102. Time, Electricity and Quantavolution [Books] [de Grazia books]
... Time, Electricity and Quantavolution With the model of Solaria Binaria constructed here along the lines of short-time electrical quantavolution, we have presented physical and cultural evidence of several major historical happenings, as well as some lesser events that need not be summarized here. 1. The succession of great gods in human history coincides with a succession of ages of destruction and renewal that may tentatively be numbered at seven. These are carried in Table 6. 2. Human nature originated abruptly with a complex culture in the first age of binary instability, precipitated by electrical and hormonal changes, and displaying anxious self-awareness and a grasping for self-control. 3. The Moon was ejected from the ancient southern hemisphere ...
103. The Archangels, Part 2 Mars Ch.5 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Archangels In the Scriptures the destruction of the army of Sennacherib is said to have been caused by a "blast," and a few verses later it is said to have been the act of an angel of God.1 The Talmudic and Midrashic sources, which relate that the army of Sennacher ib was destroyed by a blast and scourge accompanied by a terrible din on the night following the day when the shadow of the sun returned ten degrees, are more specific: the scourge was inflicted by the Archangel Gabriel "in the guise of a column of fire." 2 ...
104. The Archaeology of Shiloh and Pottery Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... because he found a building dating from Iron Age I (generally thought to be the period of the Israelite settlement) which had been destroyed by fire - by the Philistines, c.1050 BC, he assumed. Other Danes who eventually wrote up his excavations redated most of the Iron Age I pottery to Iron Age II and said the destruction was probably the work of the neo-Assyrian king Sargon in the late 8th century. The Israelis re-established the Iron Age I date for the pottery and its destruction by the Philistines! They also established that Shiloh had been a religious centre in the preceding Middle Bronze (MB) and Late Bronze (LB) periods. According to the revised ...
105. Review: The Gentile Times Reconsidered: Chronology and Christ's Return, by Carl Olof Jonsson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... thereafter be regarded as dead. (Not everyone obeyed the ruling.) The book itself is a brilliant chronological inquiry, by an all-too-infrequent contributor to C&CR. Indeed, Carl Olof Jonsson is one of the few chronologists with whom I nearly always find myself obliged to agree. The principal issue addressed in the book is whether Nebuchadnezzar's destruction of Jerusalem was or was not in 607/6BC - i.e . 2520 years before 1914, which the Jehovah's Witnesses have described as the year of the generation that will not pass away'. This chronological claim is, arguably, the cornerstone of the Jehovah's Witnesses' teaching, though they have tended to play it down ...
106. The 1552 Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... date for the eruption of Thera in the mid-sixteenth century here supports a 1552 Exodus. However, recent radiocarbon dating favors a seventeenth-century event (Manning 1990), or possibly an earlier eruption. The entry of Joshua and the sons of Israel into Canaan was in 1512. The wars following mark the end of the Middle Bronze Age. The destruction and depopulation of upland Canaan at that time is well established in the archaeological record. The destroyed area matches the biblical record, while there are no Egyptian records of any activity in upland Canaan at that time. There is also no evidence that any of this destruction can be attributed to the fleeing Hyksos. Their main army initially retreated ...
107. Earth Parturition and Moon Birth [Books] [de Grazia books]
... CHAPTER SEVEN Earth Parturition and Moon Birth The Uranian age closed in a crescendo of destruction. The ancient orphic rites of Greece commemorated their remote Uranian origins when they began with the chanting of the myth of the cracking of the cosmic egg. That the world was an egg that had to be broken to begin the human experience is a myth found in all quarters of the globe. We have reported this in the preceding chapter [1 ]. Heaven burst to produce the great god Ouranos and the turbulent sky. Then Ouranos was dismembered by his son, Saturn, in league with Gaea, his spouse and Earth. Aphrodite Urania, the Moon, was then born, ...
108. Sodom and Gomorrah [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... upfolded structures... causing the fractures that formed the Dead Sea depression," (3 ) Should it be discovered that the depression was formed in historical times the mystery of the cities' complete disappearance might thus be explained. The Book of Genesis tells of Abraham's kinsman Lot electing to dwell in Sodom and his escape prior to the destruction of the two cities - his wife at that time being turned be to a "pillar of salt". The destruction is said to have resulted from fire and brimstone falling from heaven. The fact of the catastrophic destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah is sometimes acknowledged (4 ), although the means is considered to have been of a ...
109. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part II: The Geological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... factor [9 ]. Isostatic uplift of the Vestfold Hills along the coast of Antarctica south of the Indian Ocean also occurred about 4000 years ago. The date was determined from radiocarbon dating of shells in the previously submerged dunes . So far, I have discussed possible crustal movements everywhere other than the area where the extensive site destruction and abandonment occurred at about 2300 BC: this area extends from Greece and Anatolia (Turkey) to the Indus Valley in northwestern India. Evidence of crustal movements in these areas could be an important link to the earthquake site destruction and cultural disruption. Figure 5. Possible crustal movements starting at about 2300 BC in India and surrounding areas ...
