... the world " is designated by the name " Euphrates," 18 he quickly concludes that it will not do to take the term Phrath, or Eu-frata, as always and everywhere referring to the historic river of Mesopotamia. Hitherto, then, the " results " of the theologians as to the location of Eden are purely negative and mutually destructive. " It would be difficult," says one of their number, "to find any subject in the whole history of opinion which has so invited and at the same time so completely baffled conjecture as this. Theory after theory has been advanced, but none has been found which satisfies the required conditions. The site of Eden ...
152. The Causal Source for the Geological Transients at 2300BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... West Caroline Islands - change of vertical movement c.2500BC Ryuku Islands - uplift and tilt c.2000BC Arctic and Subarctic Shamugin Islands off Alaska - rapid uplift 2300BC Antarctic West Antarctic ice sheet - ice surging indicative of vertical transient 2500-2000BC East Antarctic ice sheet - uplift c.2000BC Earthquakes A prominent aspect of the 2300BC event was widespread site destruction and abandonment throughout the regions of advanced civilisations. At many sites, destruction by earthquake was not recognised by the excavators, because of the difficulty of obtaining evidence. In many cases, the building materials crumbled with time so the evidence disappeared. In some cases there may have been some suspicion of earthquake damage but not sufficient to find ...
153. A Collective Amnesia, Part 2 Mars Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... together with all the achievements of their culture, and these upheav als "escaped your notice because for many generations the survivors died with no power to express themselves in writing."2 A similar argument is found in Philo the Alexandrian) who wrote in the first century of this era: "By reason of the constant and rep eated destructions of water and fire, the later generations did not receive from the former the memory of the order and sequence of events."3 Although Philo knew about the repeated destructions of the world by water and fire, it did not occur to him that a catastrophe of conflagration was described in the Book of Exodus. Nor did he ...
154. The Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia" (Part III) [Journals] [Kronos]
... " which also makes her come and go by sea. Concerning the provenance of the queen, Velikovsky found the answer in Josephus, a writer whose reliability had been questioned by former generations but whose reputation has been restored and confirmed by archaeologists of today. Josephus- his Jewish name was Joseph ben-Mattatiahu- was born about 35 years before the destruction of the Second Temple by Titus into one of the leading priestly families in Jerusalem. He grew up in the Temple precincts which included, among other things, the Temple library with its wealth of ancient manuscripts of which practically none have survived into our time. Among the historical scrolls was the "Book of Chronicles of the Kings of ...
155. The Amarna Iconoclasts - Who were the Real Criminals? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... not the instigator. His ideas changed the emphasis of activity in Egypt, but did not overturn what was there. On the other hand, he certainly did upset and alienate the priesthood of Amun, and the closure of their temples would have deprived them of income - a most serious action in Egyptian eyes. Turning to the matter of destruction of religious images, it must be remembered that Egypt is largely defined to us through images in stone - the texts are themselves images. The relationship between art, image and text is extremely close, and tehy function together as a whole - this is true both of straightforward informational items and especially of religious icons. To understand the ...
156. Editor's Notes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Clube, Bill Napier, Sir Fred Hoyle, David Asher, Mark Bailey, Duncan Steel et al. can be substantiated by the archaeological, climatological and historical record. Archaeology and Geology Ever since Claude Schaeffer published his book Stratigraphie Comparée et Chronologie L'Asie Occidentale in 1948, there has been continuous scientific debate about the nature and extent of the destructions of Bronze Age civilisations. Schaeffer claimed that the repeated collapses of Bronze Age cultures were not caused by the action of man but instead by seismic activity. During the last decade, eminent archaeologists have substantiated his claim and have linked destruction layers in Aegean and Near Eastern sites with natural disasters rather than with military conquests. The interpretation, ...

... ashes would have formed and persisted. Where are the ashes of single or multiple events, for that matter? Sometimes they are present, sometimes not. In certain parts of the world, extensive beds of ashes of possibly local type can be found. They are thin. We can find the ashes of Troy, on several levels of destruction, but can the ashes of the countryside around be found? If not found, does that means that Troy alone was burned, or that ruined Troy alone preserves its ashes? Paleocalcinology - such a science hardly exists - will help us someday to measure the words of Ager and Seneca. The "ordinary" fire mechanism of volcanos ...
158. The Sphinx. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... .1 The Oedipus legend, however, has no happy ending; the tragedy starts where bliss is expected to begin Students of the Oedipus legend have observed that the story of the monster was not originally part of the legend, that it is an addition, a later interpolation.2 Some students, however, wished to see in the destruction of the monster an original part of the myth and to regard everything else as an addition or a later elaboration.3 Whichever is true, it appears indisputable that the incident with the Sphinx is merely mythological. A psychoanalyst would be inclined to interpret the Sphinx story, the overcoming of a female monster, as the self-deliverance of a ...

160. First Century: Visions Of Apocalypse. Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... . In the first century before the present era Lucretius, traditionally the prophet of doom, wrote about the catastrophes and their terror: "The mighty and complex system of the universe, upheld through many years, shall crash into ruins", he predicted. "Yet I do not forget how novel and strange it strikes the mind that destruction awaits the heavens and the earth...My words will perhaps win credit by plain facts, and within some short time you will see the worlds in commotion and the universe convulsed with shocks...the universe can collapse, borne down with a frightful-sounding crash." He recalled the earlier destructions witnessed by mankind, and ...
