391. Plato And The Catastrophist Tradition [Journals] [Kronos]
... up by the earth" (Tim. 25D) and most of the fertile topsoil of Attica was washed into the Aegean by the deluge as "the action of a single night of extraordinary rain crumbled it away and made [the Acropolis] bare of soil, when earthquakes occurred simultaneously with the third of the disastrous floods which preceded the destructive deluge in the time of Deucalion" (Crit. 112A).(3 ) The many attempts to interpret this story have tended to follow three main lines. Most common, of course, has been the naive acceptance of a great submerged island somewhere in the Atlantic. Despite the failure of all attempts to locate the sunken island ...

392. A British Forum for the Velikovsky Debate [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... vast range of chronological difficulties, from the apparent Greek characters found on the tiles of Ramesses III (currently dated to the 12th century BC) to the problematical "Dark Ages" that were inserted into Greek and Anatolian histories after their chronologies were linked to that of Egypt. In Palestine the Israelite Conquest of Canaan would be reflected in the destruction of its Middle Bronze Age cities, while the wealth and sophistication of Solomon's reign would be ascribed, not to the Iron Age, but to the prosperous Late Bronze Age civilisation of Palestine, to which the records of the XVIIIth Dynasty bear witness. Velikovsky's proposals, startling as they may appear, can offer an impressive record of support ...

... adopting a radically revised chronology, the above three characters, as well as some notable biblical events, can all be clearly identified within the Egyptian historical record. His revised chronology is founded upon the adoption of Velikovsky and Heinsohn's catastrophist analysis, which argues that the civilisation we call the Bronze Age commenced following a catastrophe of extraterrestrial origin which caused destruction and devastation worldwide. His first chapter presents evidence for floods and destructions within the archaeological record across the Middle East. Drawing on the work of Heinsohn and Schaeffer, the chronological inconsistencies in the stratigraphies of Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia are exposed. With the identification within the archaeological record of the effects of this universal catastrophe, the ...

... The Wars Of The Jews Or The History Of The Destruction Of Jerusalem Book III CONTAINING THE INTERVAL OF ABOUT ONE YEAR. FROM VESPASIAN'S COMING TO SUBDUE THE JEWS TO THE TAKING OF GAMALA. CHAPTER 1.VESPASIAN IS SENT INTO SYRIA BY NERO IN ORDER TO MAKE WAR WITH THE JEWS. 1. WHEN Nero was informed of the Romans' ill success in Judea, a concealed consternation and terror, as is usual in such cases, fell upon him; although he openly looked very big, and was very angry, and said that what had happened was rather owing to the negligence of the commander, than to any valor of the enemy: and as he thought ...

395. Rethinking Hatshepsut [Journals] [SIS Review]
... explored, but these have only confirmed that there was no XVIII Dynasty palace there. Slaves, Plagues and the Red Sea Probably the major problem with the XVIII Dynasty line-up is the absence in that dynasty of any evidence in Egypt for the presence of a large number of slaves, the devastation of Egypt by the ten plagues, or the destruction of the Egyptian army. It has been claimed that the Egyptians did not record their defeats, which is true, but it should be recognised that the XVIII Dynasty was the most powerful dynasty that ever ruled Egypt and also the best documented. Such a disaster would have left some hint of it in the Egyptian records - but this ...

... this happens, it will be no more or less than another instance of mindless violence that has shaped our planet and created the context within which life emerged and evolved. Comet and asteroid collisions with earth are now seen as crucial to the origin and evolution of life, and, as many of us appreciate, the origin, evolution and destruction of civilizations. Today, we confront the stark fact that we live on a planet that has been shaped by violent and catastrophic events, catastrophic from the point of view of species and civilizations that might have been unfortunate to experience them, yet creative from the point of view of those that followed. This circumstance is still with us ...

"colbon, the daughter of the Devil is a beautiful girl .. . she is the bride and the sweetheart of Satan's son - urgel (Pleiades).

... the construction of the Biblical Patriarchal chronologies and in other chronologies such as Manetho's. At the SIS Autumn Meeting in Nottingham in October 1993, I gave the first half of a talk using outline details from Part 1 of that book. Those details and the resultant conclusions are highly significant for Oriental chronologies. There was an Oriental, composite, Destruction and Rebirth' cycle, represented by the letter M': the MU', MEM' or MA' - Water' or Deluge' cycle. It was made up of 2,300 year lots, 600 year lots and 40 year lots. One such cycle, as per Daniel's prophecy, ended in 69/70 AD ...

... ." Finally a bright light appeared in the north, "but it was mountain-high waves, rapidly coming nearer."(4 ) In these traditions there are two concurrent elements: a complete darkness that endured a number of days (in Asia, prolonged day) and, when the light broke through, a mountain-high wave that brought destruction. The Hebrew story of the passage of the sea contains the same elements. There was a prolonged and complete darkness (Exodus 10:21). The last day of the darkness was at the Red Sea.(5 ) When the world plunged out of darkness, the bottom of the sea was uncovered, the waters were ...

... escaped mutilation, and some of them represent flood, drought, dark days, evil, and woe to mankind- expressions which can apply to catastrophes. The picture on page 74 is clearly related to cataclysm and is referred to by some authors as "the catastrophe picture." Thompson (1972, 88.89) believes it represents destruction of he world by flood. According to him "the painting depicts floods of water pouring earthward from the open mouth of a celestial dragon with subsidiary streams flowing from sun and moon cartouches suspended from the underside of the creature's body." It is strange he did not comment on the solid objects with which the downpour is charged. ...
