11. Five Midianite Cities: A Response to Dwardu Cardona's "The Cities of the Plain" [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History VII:2 (July 1985) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Five Midianite Cities: A Response to Dwardu Cardona's "The Cities of the Plain"Stan F. Vaninger Mr. Cardona has sought to defend a synchronism first suggested by Velikovsky in the late 1950's: that the destruction of the cities of the plain recorded in Genesis 19 occurred at the end of Early Bronze III. [1 ] Closely associated with this synchronism is the identification of the five sites presently being excavated by Rast and Schaub as being the cities of the plain. [2 ] Taken by itself, the synchronism (and its associated identification) has much to commend ...
12. Schizophrenia and the Fear of World Destruction [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 1 (Spring 1975) Home | Issue Contents Schizophrenia and the Fear of World Destruction Lewis M. Greenberg and Warner B. Sizemore Copyright © April, 1975 by Lewis M. Greenberg and Warner B. Sizemore It is widely known that the Aztecs of Mexico experienced great anxiety each time a 52-year Venus-cycle neared its completion. But what, precisely, was it that they were afraid of? During the five useless days (nemontemi) of the final year the people let their fires go out and destroyed their household furniture. Fasting and lamentation were the order of the day while the populace awaited catastrophe. Pregnant women were shut up ...
13. Sodom and Gomorrah's Location and Destruction [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IX:2 (July 1987) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Sodom and Gomorrah's Location and Destruction Rene Andrew Boulay Sodom and Gomorrah and the other infamous cities of the Valley of Siddim, which were destroyed in the days of Abraham, have never been physically located, although tradition places them under the waters of the shallow or southern part of the Dead Sea- that body of water the Jews call Yam Hamelach or the Salt Sea. A second assumption, which we will also address here, is the age of the Dead Sea, that it is hundreds of thousands of years old and that it existed in its present configuration since recorded time ...
14. The Conquest of Canaan AND THE REVISED CHRONOLOGY [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Exodus and Conquest in the 13th Century BC The present consensus of scholarly opinion places the Exodus in the thirteenth century BC, a date of c. 1270 BC being widely accepted (1 ). The Conquest of Canaan by the Israelites under Joshua is consequently supposed to have begun about forty years later, around 1230BC. Archaeology supposedly attests the destruction of a number of cities in Palestine between 1230 and c. 1200 BC, and an attendant change in culture. It is claimed by many that here is archaeological evidence for the arrival of the Israelite tribes in Canaan. Indeed, this archaeological evidence is now one of the mainstays of the 13th century date for the Exodus (2 ...
15. Velikovsky's Sources Volume One [Books]
... :10.), not the retreating Venus Comet. It doesn't make any sense to have the Venus Comet saying, "I will exalt my throne above the stars of God", but it certainly does tie in with the arrogance of the King of Babylon. Incidentally, if the Morning Star was a former agent of death and destruction, it is surely ironic that Christ should refer to himself, in Rev.22:16. as "the bright and morning star"! The way I see it, though, there is no irony at all, since Both Christ and Isaiah are using metaphors- the first representing the freshness and glory of a new day ...
16. Palestinian Archaeology and a Ramesses VI-Shishak Identification [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 7 robber trenches, plus the backfilling and levelling, would have taken place immediately before the cyclopean constructions of Str. 6C- a theory quite compatible with both the stratigraphic and the ceramic evidence" (p . 65). Could this extensive Structure 7 preparation for construction be Solomon's? Such a hypothesis would agree well with the preceding partial destruction of Gezer by fire, as evidenced in Field II Structure 13 (which belongs, like Field VI Structure 8, to General Stratum XV); elsewhere there is evidence at this horizon for "disruption and possible gap in occupation in all fields excavated thus far" (p . 86). This interpretation of Field VI Structure 7 ...
17. Volcanism And Catastrophic Mythology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... however severe, local events were unlikely to have been catastrophic enough to engender the eruptive elements of ancient world-wide mythologies. The most outstanding recent attempt to explain a wide variety of mythological elements began in 1939 with Professor Marinatos. He postulated that the gigantic eruption of the Thera volcano, which involved a caldera collapse, was directly responsible for the destruction of the Minoan civilisation on Crete in the Bronze Age. This has led to further speculation by Galanopoulos and others that this supposed destruction of Crete could have been the source of the Atlantis story and, further, that the plagues of Egypt and the deluge of Deukalion could refer to the same catastrophic event. At first sight the enormous ...
18. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1977) Home | Issue Contents Bookshelf edited by Brian Moore Peoples of the Sea? MYCENAEAN GREECE by J.T . Hooker Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1977; THE SEA PEOPLES AND EGYPT by A. Nibbi Princeton: Noyes Press, 1975. PETER JAMES The idea that a mass migration of barbarians from the Aegean was responsible for the destruction of the Late Bronze civilisations of the eastern Mediterranean c.1200 BC is probably one of the most treasured concepts of Near Eastern archaeology. The linking of this invasion of "Sea Peoples" with the arrival of the Philistines of the Old Testament is a major lynch-pin of the conventional chronology for the transitional phase from the Late Bronze to ...
19. Part III: The Legends [Ragnarok] [Books]
... wives Seduce to sin. Brothers slay brothers, Sisters' children Shed each other's blood. Hard is the world ! Sensual sin grows huge. There are sword-ages, axe-ages Shields are cleft in twain Storm-ages, murder ages Till the world falls dead, And men no longer spare Or pity one another." 1 The world has ripened for destruction; and " Ragnarok," the darkness of the gods, or the rain of dust and ashes, comes to complete the work. The whole story is told with the utmost detail, and we shall see that it agrees, in almost every particular, with what reason assures us must have happened. "There are three winters ...
20. A Celtic Destruction Myth: 'Togail Bruidne Da Derga' [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Proceedings of The Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1986) Home | Issue Contents A Celtic Destruction Myth: Togail Bruidne Da Derga Dorothea Kenny When Immanuel Velikovsky began to consider the Exodus stories as records of a series of real catastrophes, he canvassed many mythological systems in search of contradiction or corroboration. But, widely as he cast his net, he did not take in the Celtic area. Had he done so, he would have found material to interest him. Several myths recorded in Gaelic and Welsh provide the Celtic evidence of catastrophe. These stories are not simple. Like much of Celtic myth they would have been understood- at a superficial level ...
