321. EBLA -- A New Look at History (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... that naturally suggest themselves from the evidence from Ebla. They may prove fruitful to someone who is patient enough to investigate the problem further. But for the time being 15 plus years of argument and discussion have not resolved the chronological placement of the palace C archives with respect to Egypt and Mesopotamia to the point of demonstration. As for the destruction of the above palace and Ebla it is unlikely that Naram Sin, despite his enthusiasm and excitement, was the first to have destroyed or defeated Ebla. In the light of the many chronological ambiguities above it is wholly gratuitous to maintain that Naram Sin destroyed Ebla. He may have or it may have been destroyed for him and he ...
322. On the Survival of Velikovsky's Thesis in 'Ages in Chaos' [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... from the fact. However, without a simultaneous correction of the beginning date for Dynasty XIII he now had the thirteenth-dynasty kings ruling alongside the Hyksos kings- the very situation early scholars had tried desparatelv to avoid, since it involved a severe anachronism. The tendency among Velikovsky's proponents has been to associate the meager evidence of city destruction at the end of Middle Bronze with the Israelite conquest. But just as biblical incidents should now appear earlier in Egypt's history, so these same events should also appear earlier in the scheme of archaeological ages, not later. The point of reference here should not be the position assigned to the conquest conventionally, but the position assigned by ...
323. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... whether the material is deeply buried or greatly squeezed. This conclusion is well founded if one assumes that purely chemical processes commence after initial attack by microbial agencies, which is not severe in the case of normal coals. More profound microbial attack results in the formation of normal coals containing high proportions of opaque matter or fusain, or to the destruction of major proportions of the cellular tissues of the plants and the formation of abnormal coal types, such as bogheads and cannels. '* * Coal by W. Francis [Edward Arnold (publishers) Ltd]. Pressure is important in coalification as a source of heat, although high pressures also favor coalification from the viewpoint of mass ...
324. Part IV: Conclusions [Ragnarok] [Books]
... the stepping-stones for migrations and intercourse between the old and the now worlds, just as the discovery of the Azores helped forward the discovery of the New World by Columbus; he used them, we know, as a halting-place in his great voyage. When Job speaks of " the island of the innocent," which was spared from utter destruction, he prefaces it by asking, (chap. xxii): " 15. Hast thou marked the old way which wicked men have trodden? " 16. Which were (was?) cut down out of time, whose foundation was over-flown with a flood." And in chapter xxviii, verse 4, we have what ...
325. The Science of Catastrophism [Articles]
... occurred in the heavens and on Earth and to us in the past few thousand years, not once but many times, not identically but equally traumatic and horrifying. At different moments, oceans overflowed the land, tidal waves tore across continents, volcanoes and earthquakes erupted everywhere, winds shrieked and hurricanes ravaged and forests were set on fire as destruction came from a sky ablaze with heavenly bodies in disordered motion. There was dazzling light or sudden darkness, immense heat or rapid frost, rivers changed their courses and cracks appeared in the earth, mountains rose or fell. In the human sphere there was toppling of fortifications, destruction of cities and the ends of kingdoms, vast slaughter ...
326. Ugarit and the Old Testament (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... longest chapter treats the relevance of Ugaritic studies to our understanding of the Old Testament, and nine specific examples are discussed in some detail. It is at this point that the possibility of a revised chronology of the ancient world becomes especially provocative. Craigie, of course, holds to the conventional chronology of ancient times, which places the final destruction of Ugarit at about 1200 B.C . (at the end of the Late Bronze Age), hundreds of years before the greater part of the Hebrew Scriptures began to be recorded. Thus, in his discussion of specific examples, Craigie arrives at the only conclusion possible when working within the conventional framework. Probably the most familiar ...
327. Reconsidering Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... gigantic comet, which he names Typhon, and which was first perceived coming from behind Jupiter (hence the ejection'), travelling through the Solar System, breaking up into several smaller comets, causing meteorite streams which still hit the Earth now at regular intervals, and which is also responsible for fireballs of the Tunguska variety that cause large-scale destruction and, in his view, may have caused a number of dark ages'. This stimulating opening lecture, with the frequent use of slides to illustrate his points, gave us an overall view of the bombardment to which the Earth has continuously been subjected. Clube pointed out that the generally accepted uniformitarian view since Darwin and Lyell prevails ...
328. Isaac Asimov in Absurdity [Books]
... point! (13) As Carl Sagan wrote about Galanopoulos: "In a certain sense, the Galanopoulos explanation of the events in Exodus is more provocative than the Velikovsky explanation, because Galanopoulos has presented moderately convincing evidence that Thera corresponds in almost all essential details to the legendary civilization of Atlantis. If he is right, it is the destruction of Atlantis rather than the apparition of a comet that permitted the Israelites to leave Egypt." (14) In this book, Asimov has written the "Foreword" and, therefore, had read Sagan's statement. On the basis of this reading, he had to know that Galanopoulos equated the period of the Exodus with the legend ...
329. Pompous Asimov [Books]
... 1959 and then waited 17 years to publish it? Or, to go to the opposite extreme, that he had found it just before Bushman's letter was published in 1976, which would enable him to write to Bushman "promptly," already knowing of his own error? This is nonsense. Are we also to believe that the three destructive letters of response all arrived at the same time, as if they had gestated together for nine months? More so, even if they did, why did Asimov wait until they were about to be published in November before he wrote his retraction? Why did he not publish it in Physics Today immediately after Bushman's letter in February, ...
330. Experiments with Time. I: 'Catastrophes and Chronologies' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... XVIII-XX are in the Appendix. The XXI and subsequent dynasties are dealt with in Section 5. 1. The Dark Age' of Greece Conventionally, the Dark Age' lasted 350-400 years. Of this, 200 years is here considered to be due to a chronological error, leaving a genuine period of 150-200 years during which famine and massive destruction decimated the population. As a result, few remains of monumental architecture have been found and the resumption of building in stone did not occur until late in the Geometric Period. The progress of this decline and recovery has been charted by Syriopoulos [1 ]. In the parts of Greece covered by his survey, he lists an original ...
