281. Introduction (In the Beginning: God) [Books]
... also, regarded as the ultimate author of the holy writings. This idea of the divine inspiration of the Bible, and hence also of the cosmogonic accounts has survived almost into our own days. It was the main obstacle which prevented, on the one hand, inquiry into the content of truth of the accounts of world creation and world destruction and, on the other hand, made it impossible to take at their face value the great number of cosmogonic myths of other peoples which were eventually discovered. On the strength of such considerations the great majority of flood myths, for instance, were declared to be merely trumped up reports of local inundations which were not contemporaneous with the ...
282. Deluge Warnings (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... indeed, when the deluge came they resorted to these tactics, but God heated the waters and the flesh of their bodies was scalded. And thus they perished. Another Jewish tale says that Noah bruited the news of the impending danger abroad, but was met with incredulity and scorn. The wicked men asked him scoffingly what sort of universal destruction he thought would come upon them and their children. And even if he should prove to be in the right they were prepared for all contingencies. If there was to be a fall of fire, had they not the animal called alitha, whose name alone Deluge Warnings was a powerful fire-spell? If it was a case of water ...
283. Monitor [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... small one, confined to the Hawaiian islands and considered, because of its paucity of individuals, to be on the verge of extinction, it being assumed that it was formerly a flourishing group. Are small, struggling groups of organisms, however, necessarily just survivors? In many cases this may unfortunately be true, due to the wholesale destruction of the environment by man, but could some examples represent the potential beginnings of a new species? The Hibiscadelphus genus consists of five species. One survives today in cultivation only; the solitary parent was found near a volcano. Another still struggles in the wild; again the few individuals were found on the slopes of a volcano. ...
284. The Uranians [Books] [de Grazia books]
... . Translucent mixtures of light and darkness are sensed in the sky; Heaven is close to Earth, if not identical with it, as an eggshell encloses its egg. The human mind sees itself as within the Egg, which is cracked open. The Demiurge who has hatched himself is Super-Uranus who presides over the now opening universe. THE DESTRUCTION OF PANGEA According to the scenario of the last chapters, Solaria Binaria would be transforming at a rapid rate, some fourteen thousand years ago, with grave consequences to the proto-humans of Earth. The cause would have been a reduction in the particles and electrical charging that the Sun had been obtaining from its galaxy, whose expansion was proceeding ...
285. Sunk Without Trace? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The Sunken Kingdom, everything Plato wrote about Athens in connection with his Atlantis account fits into a much later Bronze Age setting. For that and other reasons, some have sought to re-date the Atlantis story to hundreds rather than thousands of years before the time of Plato. Spyridon Marinatos and Angelos Galanopoulos argued that Plato's epic was based on the destruction of the Minoan civilisation of Crete, as a consequence of a volcanic explosion centred upon the nearby island of Thera. However, few of the details matched and it is now clear that the Minoan civilisation survived the Thera eruption. An alternative theory was put forward by Eberhard Zangger, who proposed that Atlantis was Troy, its destruction following ...
... It comes to a question of syntax. The basic proposition is something like this: "Heaven and earth are being remade" - a statement in the present tense. When this is then transferred into the past tense, several deductions can be made. The simplest and most unquestioning is, "Heaven and earth have been remade; great destruction was caused, and this we lament." It is actually a lament, the papyrus of lpuwer, which Velikovsky uses as the starting-point for his reconstruction. The alternative to lament comes by making the same statement, "Heaven and earth were remade," and then adding to it, "Stability has now been achieved, and ...
287. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... time as this wide-ranging evidence for Neolithic and Bronze Age societies with an almost obsessive interest in astronomy, the nature and causes of their disappearance were discussed by Dr Baity. Particularly striking are the results of Claude Schaeffer's work. In his Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l'Asie occidentale, Schaeffer assembled a wealth of archaeological data suggesting a series of simultaneous destructions at sites throughout Western Asia and the Eastern Mediterranean between the end of Early Bronze II and the end of the Late Bronze Age. [See Geoffrey Gammon's article "Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East" in SISR IV:4 .] Schaeffer was inclined to attribute these destructions to seismic activity, and in the light of our ...
... . In the days of Solomon's heir it was split in two- Israel in the north and Judah in the south. About -722 the Ten Tribes of Israel, after the capture of their capital, Samaria, by Sargon II of Assyria, went into exile, from which they did not return. In -587 or -586 Judah, after the destruction of its capital, Jerusalem, by Nebuchadnezzar, went into Babylonian exile, from whence small groups of the nation came back after Babylon was captured (in -538) by Cyrus the Persian. Additional groups returned to Palestine during the following century. Alexander the Great conquered Palestine on his way to Egypt in -333. Although Egypt and Palestine ...
289. The Flood from Heaven: Deciphering the Atlantis Legend by Eberhard Zangger [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Ice Age around 11,000 years ago and showing no evidence of having been lowered by seismic activity. Hence, some have looked in another time and/or place for Atlantis. Immanuel Velikovsky wrote in Worlds in Collision that there must be one nought too many in the age of Atlantis as given by Plato, which would place its destruction within the period of his postulated Venus-induced catastrophes. Others have suggested that the story could be a garbled account of the destruction of the Bronze Age Minoan civilization of Crete as a consequence of a massive volcanic eruption on the nearby island of Thera, but it now seems clear that these two events occurred at different times (see JACF 4 ...

... took this as a starting point for his analysis. Accordingly, he compared the names of the ostraca with the time and book of Jeremiah. Over the years most of his early readings have been corrected or abandoned. However, Level II and the ostraca continue to be dated to the time of Jeremiah- specifically to the eve of Jerusalem's destruction in 587 BC.
