111. A Chart to Illustrate the Conquest of Canaan [Journals] [SIS Review]
... place towards the end of the Late Bronze Age, in the second half of the 13th century BC, and it is held that archaeological evidence supports this date. In a previous article (SISR I:3 , pp. 2-7) Dr Bimson argued that the Conquest, in terms of the revised chronology, must be associated with the destructions of the Middle Bronze Age cities of Palestine. The accompanying table clearly shows this new placement to be preferable when the archaeological evidence is set against the Biblical records. The accompanying table includes only those cities concerning which the Biblical tradition is unequivocal and which are located with a good measure of agreement. Only Debir fits into the conventional scheme ...
112. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... are separated from Phrygian strata by an Anatolian dark age like that of Greece. Kurgal has described this period as containing no evidence of any people in central Anatolia throughout- roughly 1200-800 B.C . Phrygian strata are normally dated from the 8th century, but these orthodox dates will now require lowering to the 7th/6th centuries if Hittite destruction levels are associated in some way with Velikovsky's earth shocks. This includes not only Phrygian strata at principal Anatolian sites but tumulus burials of the Sangarius (including Gordion), the Ionic settlement of western Anatolia, and in turn archaic Greek dates. This has distinct repercussions, for the Phrygians of Homer, allies of Troy, cannot then ...
113. The Cambridge Conference [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the second millennium BC. Did biblical traditions support this? The implication of the astronomical use of megalithic monuments would indicate that these were built after any major Earth shifting catastrophe and radiocarbon dating led to the conclusion that any such catastrophe took place at the end of the Egyptian Old Kingdom, in line with Mandelkehr's 2,300BC event. The destructions in the Middle Bronze Age were not so widespread as those of the Early period and could have been caused by man. All the events of the Exodus could be explained by normal, though exaggerated, happenings, except for the pillar of fire, which could be considered a metaphor for God's presence. The area is on the north ...
114. A Reply to S.F. Vaninger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... , as Gibeon's excavator, J.B . Pritchard, remarked: "the area of occupation must have been extensive in this period" (Gibeon: Where the Sun Stood Still, 1962, p. 154). Although unfortified, Gibeon therefore suits the large city referred to in Joshua 9 and 10. Vaninger remarks that the violent destructions of Shechem at the end of MB II have to be explained away, since no mention is made of a conquest of Shechem in the Old Testament. It is worth noting that Vaninger's own view meets with the same kind of problem, since the end of EB III also saw the destruction of some towns which the Israelites did not ...
115. The Albrecht/Glueck-Aharoni/Rothenberg Confrontation [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... These observations are significant toward arriving at a correct solution to the entire problem, as will be noted in a later section. Other than at Arad, the earliest evidence of sedentary occupation in this northern area was found to belong to Middle Bronze IIB, the period conventionally assigned to the Hyksos era of Egypt. The elapsed time between the destruction of Arad and the first Middle Bronze settlement was estimated to have been a thousand years. The Middle Bronze villages at tel Malhata and tel Masos were well fortified. This observation was at odds with Glueck's deduction that there had been no sedentary occupation in the Negeb later than Middle Bronze I until the Iron Age. Was Glueck in error ...
116. The Olympian Rulers [Books] [de Grazia books]
... , when enormous electrical and material storms invaded the magnetic tube. The debris of Saturn's fission could be considered either as Saturn's dismemberment or as a clearing of rebellious Saturnians from the skies. Again Seth is taking the onus for Horus' action, while Zeus is doing his own job. The next phase, perhaps upon the occasion of the destruction of planet "Apollo" and the major displacement of Mercury, sees, in Egypt, Seth and Horus battling, and in Greece, a revolt of the giants against the Olympians led by Zeus. This set of events, then, would occur over a thousand years later than the death of Osiris and would mark the appearance of ...
117. Untitled [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... "Lake Ashphalt". Thus, the geographer Strabo referred in the first century AD to the region as "a land of fires" (XVI, 764). A century before Strabo, the Jewish author of the "Wisdom of Solomon" noted (10:7 ): "Wisdom saved a man (Lot) from a destruction of the godless, and he escaped the fire that came down on the Five Cities, cities whose wickedness is STILL ATTESTED BY SMOKING WASTE (emphasis added)." The great Jewish philosopher Philo of Alexandria claimed that "a most evident proof" of the everlasting effects of the Sodom and Gomorrah upheaval "is to be found in ...
118. Myths of the Cataclysm Caused by the Breakdown of a Former Satellite (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... cataclysm, with its acoustic and, chiefly, physical impressions, has not yet started. For that reason I, suggest that the passages which refer to powerful acoustic impressions, the rage and roar of the cataclysm (lob) and the surge of the waters of the deluge (15b), as well as the hint at the world-wide destruction (18c) which is about to begin (19c), are, strictly speaking, out of place in this first myth, and only appear in it from literary and rhetorical considerations.14 This supposition is greatly strengthened by the fact that the observer is expressly and repeatedly ordered to write only about what he sees (11b, ...
119. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... is notable in several other ways. To astronomers it is the vernal equinox. To farmers, students and others it is the first day of spring, and to Israelis it is the anniversary of their Day of Independence, the night when Moses led the Hebrew slaves out of the land of Egypt. March 21 was also a date of destruction and chaos, of diastrophism and catastrophism, in ancient Rome. It was their "Tubulustrium". The Romans feared Mars to the point that Mars veneration dominated Roman religion for 1,000 years. In Latin, tubicen means "trumpeter", tubulatus means "hallowed", and tuburcinor means "to devour". Tubulustrium is ...
120. Evidence of An Inversion Event? [Journals] [Aeon]
... been used to defend Velikovsky's inversion chronology. This paper presents the case that the transition from the Pleistocene Epoch to the Holocene or Recent Epoch, which occurred approximately 12,000 yr BP, appears to present evidence relating to an inversion event. The nature of such an inversion event will first be reviewed in order to clarify the type of destruction and Earth changes that would likely result. The evidence from the end of the Pleistocene is then presented and interpreted in terms of an inversion event. The rotating Earth displays certain motions, precession and nutation, that are typical of a spinning top on which a torque or twisting force is applied. In its precessional motion, the spin ...
