131. A Time of Pestilence and a Shaking of the Earth [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the biblical Shishak is identified with Ramses II. Even so short a revision remains problematical in relation to the king-lists and chronicles, and interconnections between the Hittites, Kassites, and Egyptians (court correspondence, treaties, campaign information, etc.). The end of the Late Bronze (LB) period is marked by a series of site destructions in the Near East and Aegean during late dynasty XIX and again during dynasty XX. These are generally assumed to be due to human agency, and even the Glasgow chronologists favored the Assyrian wars for some of the site destruction. [2 ] Too, the new scheme of James and Rohl coincides with the campaigns of Assurnasirpal II and ...
132. The Problem of Adjusting the Date Limits of the Archaeological Ages to Meet Velikovsky's Revision [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Customs have a tendency to enjoy long life- some even continuing into the New Testament and later. Without an understanding of when a custom was adopted and when it fell into disuse, such evidence has no chronological value for even approximate dating purposes, and provides no indication that the traditional scheme contains no errors. Even evidences of construction and destruction in themselves do not constitute proof sufficiently unique to serve as a basis for synchronism. Individual structures and even entire cities have all undergone destructions, usually repeatedly, during the periods of their existence. Too much confidence has been placed on scarabs and other items kept as keepsakes as a basis for dating. The use of the same or ...
133. From the Death of Isaac to the Exodus out of Egypt [Books]
... not become him to be afraid on account of his son, nor to suspect the worst, as he did; for nothing could be done to his son but by the appointment of God, which must also for certain come to pass, though he were at home with him; that he ought not to condemn them to such manifest destruction; nor deprive them of that plenty of food they might have from Pharaoh, by his unreasonable fear about his son Benjamin, but ought to take care of the preservation of Symeon, lest, by attempting to hinder Benjamin's journey, Symeon should perish. He exhorted him to trust God for him; and said he would either bring ...
134. The Aquatic Graveyards. Ch.2 Revolution (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... come to be covered with a stratum of rolled pebbles of almost every variety of ancient rock, fifteen stories' height in thickness."3 In the red sandstone an abundant aquatic fauna is embedded. The animals are in disturbed positions. At the period of the past when these formations were composed, "some terrible catastrophe involved in sudden destruction the fish of an area at least a hundred miles from boundary to boundary, perhaps much more. The same platform in Orkney as at Cromarty is strewed thick with remains, which exhibit unequivocally the marks of violent death. The figures are contorted, contracted, curved; the tail in many instances is bent around to the head; ...
135. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Mesolithic Age, Neolothic and Bronze Ages and so on there were a large number of colloques, or symposia, for specialists, the papers for which were printed in full in the huge pile of booklets given to the congressistes. Finally there were five thèmes spécialisés one of which which was entitled "New Hypotheses with Regard to Bronze Age site destructions and cultural discontinuities", under the direction of Dr Elizabeth Baity of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Dr Baity will be familiar to some as the author of a long article in Current Anthrolopogy (vol. 14, 1973) reviewing the present state of archaeo-astronomical studies. There was a certain amount of confusion over the arrangements for this ...
136. Recent Developments In Near Eastern Archaeology. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Israel, and in historical periods in general. ' (p . 1333). Mazar has moved towards Finkelstein with respect to the end date of Iron IIA (formerly c. 925/900 BC), partly due to some of his carbon dates and partly due to the Jezreel excavations. A large set of carbon dates from the destruction of Rehov Str.V (Iron IIA pottery; the subsequent Str. IV is also Iron IIA) gave a calibrated date range of 900-830 BC (p . 1338). Mazar now sees the Iron IIA destructions (ends of Str. V & IV) as caused not by Shishak c. 925 BC but by the Aramaeans ...
137. Untitled [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:3 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents The Final Destruction of Nineveh The Final Destruction of Nineveh Tania ta Maria Clandestine archaeological digs have long been conducted all over the world with the aim of selling recovered artifacts to private collectors. What is happening now in Iraq is the selling of artifacts that were unearthed by professional archaeologists in bona fide legal excavations. It was Sennacherib who turned Nineveh into the largest city of the known world when he moved his administrative centre to that locality sometime between the years 704 and 681 B.C . Constructing a new wall with eighteen separate gates around the city, he also embellished the capital with a new palace ...
138. Jericho [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... him considerable knowledge of the area even before he commenced work. During his directorship he walked the precise itinerary of Joshua's army and by this means had identified the sites of many cities whose exact location had long been forgotten. Garstang and his associates examined over 100,000 potsherds from the site of Jericho and from these he dated the city's destruction to the middle of the late Bronze Age (c . 1400 B.C . by conventional dating). This was contrary to the generally accepted date of the Exodus and conquest, which was then considered to have occurred at the time of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt, some 200 years later. It was suggested either that his ...
139. The Sulfur Connection [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. XII No. 3 (Spring 1988) Home | Issue Contents The Sulfur Connection Dwardu Cardona In analyzing the possible cause behind the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah some years back, I discussed those ancient sources which persisted in connecting the odor of sulfur with thunderbolts(1 ) Why thunderbolts were at all considered as possible agents of this destruction was made clear even earlier.(2 ) At that time I excluded all observations from modern times that might have been germane to the analysis because, to tell the truth, I was only aware of one that of Benjamin Franklin's 1749 report to the Royal Society in London. In that report, Franklin listed ...
140. He Who Shines by Day [Books] [de Grazia books]
... have presented evidence that Pallas Athene was the god of the planet Venus, that the planet appeared in the sky sometime before 1500 B.C ., that she behaved as a comet, traveled on an eccentric orbit that brought her perilously close to Earth, and that around 1500 B.C . and on several other occasions caused tremendous destruction here. The foundations or refounding of the city of Athens may be of this date [1 ], just as those of Rome were concurrent with the raging appearance in the skies of the planet-god Mars 700 years later. References from a number of cultures lead one to believe that, as the Greek theogony put it, Athena sprang ...
