341. Chapter 13 Scythian Princes in the Royal Tombs of Ur [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... There is absolutely nothing to support Cardona's contention that the vegetative materials used to embalm the Scythians, as found in Siberia, should have survived in the soil at Ur. There is direct geological and chemical evidence that explains why such vegetative matter had to be destroyed by the acids in the soil there. In the Ukraine there would be less destruction of organic materials than at Ur, but more destruction than in Siberia. But Trippett, on page 23, exhibits a photograph of a female skeleton from a tomb in the Ukraine, whose grave apparently had not been disturbed by thieves. What that photograph shows are her bones, gold artefacts, but no clothing, no tissues, ...
342. A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible - From Myth to History by David M. Rohl [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the formal course of studies which led in1990 to a BA degree in Egyptology at University College, London, where he subsequently began work on the PhD thesis on the chronological revision which is the subject of the present work. The book is in five sections, following an introduction summarising the generally accepted histories of Egypt and Israel up to the destruction of the kingdom of Judah by Nebuchadrezzar II in 587 BC. Part One, Conundrums of the Pharaohs', draws attention to several anomalies in the currently accepted chronology of the TIP in Egypt, which throw doubt on its validity. Part Two, Unravelling the Gordian Knot', examines the four main pillars of the conventional chronology and ...
343. Thoth Vol III, No. 15: Nov 15, 1999 [Journals] [Thoth]
... Amy and Kaj as the triple-goddess of the Kronialist, and I'm happy for all your left-brain activity! No sooner had I dispatched this, than I realized one of you had to be the irresistible female lure (e .g . Helen of Troy, La Belle Dame sans Merci), another the nurturing Mother, and the third the destructive, death-dealing Crone (Kali &c .) ! PAM replies: heh heh, I'd configure it a little differently since la belle dame sans merci & Kali cover pretty much the same ground. What you're leaving out are the wisdom goddesses, Sekmet, Maat, Sophia, Shekinah, Athena. Actually, I think the Greeks had ...
344. The Palaetiology of Fear and Memory [Books]
... We may cite here not only the striking documentation published by Immanuel Velikovsky from religious myths and secular histories of the earliest times, but also the researches of the Renaissance and Enlightenment scholars such as Giordano Bruno and Nicolas-Antoine Boulanger, surveys of Claude Schaeffer on the comparative stratigraphy of the Near and Middle East, and the ever-mounting geological evidence of widespread destruction in Holocene times, much of which was also compiled by Velikovsky. Humanity was literally born in an epoch of disasters, and it may be correct to say that man was created by disasters. That is to say, by principle: Natural catastrophes must be the origins of the overload of fear-affect that has driven man to create most ...
... turned into amber. Three of them bore names, EgIť, Phaethusa, and Lampeter, who bore the surname of the Heiades. Of the first two I can say nothing, but it can scarcely be by mere chance that one of these names survives in Lampeter, an ancient town between Carmarthen and Pembroke in the region of former great destruction. The history of amber is curious. As all know, it is the fossilized sap of Tertiary trees which were stripped of timber by vast and uncontrolled waves of electricity, and which has accorded it a certain magnetic reaction. It is a fact that gives a certain piquancy to the myth that Phaeton's sisters' team were transformed into ...
346. The 108-year Cyclicism of the Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Aeon]
... number of catastrophic millennia? In a later step, this issue will be addressed.) The Greeks identified the celestial assaulter as Ares and/or Apollo. The Romans identified it as Mars. The Hebrews identified it variously as the angel of the Lord, the pillar of fire by night and the cloud by day, the bosom of destruction, behemoth, leviathan, the fighting star, the destructive cherub, Mazzaroth, and "ma'ayish" which has been mistranslated as the constellation Arcturus. "Ma'ayish" and "me owr," in Hebrew, are both Mars. Furthermore, the month of the other cluster of catastrophes, October, in Hebrew is Marchesvan, or ...
347. The Birth of Athena [Journals] [Aeon]
... the earth quake. Great Priestess, who can soothe your troubled heart? You flash like lightning over the highlands; you throw your firebrands across the earth. Your deafening command... splits apart great mountains. (50) As this passage illustrates, a recurring motive finds the rampage of the warring goddess to be accompanied by widespread destruction. Such is the case in The Exaltation to Inanna for example: Devastatrix of the lands, you are lent wings by the storm... you fly about the nation. At the sound of you the lands bow down. Propelled on your own wings you peck away at the land. With a roaring storm you roar; ...
348. The Electrical God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... well. Perhaps he believed in an eternal nation, with endless religious and blood descent, whose people would fulfill their need for immortality in the transmission of Yahweh along the lines of their descent as the Chosen People, "the Peculiar Treasure" of Yahweh. There is another side to this matter of the Chosen People. Yahweh commands the destruction of all peoples who stand in the way of his "children." The limits of their territory, it may be argued, are those of the Jordan Valley and Canaan; but the directive is without limits, according to another argument. Since even related tribes come under the annihilating directive, thanks to the monopoly the Israelites allow ...
349. THE ROAD TO SATURN (EXCERPTS FROM AN AUTOBIOGRAPHICAL ESSAY) [Journals] [Aeon]
... the deluge and, if possible, about earlier times. What I continued to discover amazed me, for, even before the deluge, it seems that cosmic catastrophism had been rampant, and today it is my belief that mankind owes its emergence as the unique race it has become to such disasters in the celestial sphere. VI Catastrophism betokens destruction, but our ancient forebears seem to have been just as obsessed with creation. Tales of creation are among the most abundant in the world's repository of mythology. Our ancestors not only described the creation of the world, they did so as if they had actually witnessed the occurence. There is no point in countering that such cosmogonical tales ...
350. Book Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the list of prophecies are of course the well-known Fatima warnings and others issued from time to time by members of the Church of Rome. The reason for the inclusion and advertisement of this book is the fact that the instruments of the portended doom are seen to be related to the work of Dr. Velikovsky in which he deals with the destructive agencies in earth's history and relates them to comets colliding with the earth, viz. Worlds in Collision'. Quite apart from the fact that the Church would be the first to protect herself from the many saintly predictions which have been made through the ages on the grounds of their unreliability, however sincerely intended, we wrote to the ...
