... ancient kings derived their legitimacy from posing as temporal representatives of the gods, with their royal titles reflecting their exalted position. Are we to believe that the Assyrian subjects of Xerxes (Khsharshya) knew him by this title, which was for them meaningless and probably unpronounceable? (b ) The scheme presented here makes the Persians responsible for the destruction of Jerusalem and the deportation of the Jews to Babylon. How, it has been said, could the Jews have forgotten this? They forgot it for a number of reasons, some of which will be examined later. For the moment we should note that the true liberators of the Jews from Babylonian captivity, the Macedonians, later ...

... to 2130, caused by a Venus-induced axis shift. The Flood was in Noah's 600th year, so the Theban Nome was founded in 2730, a date assigned to Sneferu's inauguration of the 12 Nomes. There is comparison between Genesis 6:5-7, where God planned to destroy his entire creation, and the sun-God Re, who decreed the Destruction of Mankind. At this point, Weche claims he has understood the origins of Egyptian cosmologies. I can't follow most of the reasoning, as I am not sufficiently au-fait with this extremely complicated subject. However it seems that, after the Flood, Hermopolitan theology takes the place of Heliopolitan, Amun replacing Re and the priesthood having more ...

433. Josephus and Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Abram came into Egypt, they were unacquainted with those parts of learning; for that science came from the Chaldeans into Egypt, and from thence to the Greeks also."(2 ) Abraham's interest in astronomy would not be unexpected according to Velikovsky, who claimed that at the time of Abraham, Jupiter dominated the Earth, causing great destruction.(3 ) Josephus gives more details than do the Scriptures as to Abraham's new religious beliefs, which caused him to be driven from his original home in Chaldea. Astronomy played a large part in the ideas of the father of three major religions. "For he was the first that ventured to publish this notion, that there ...

... care that the good dominates you. You are not sick. Be hopeful. Help is on its way." This formula, although it can be called delusion, was a great invention. Granted the essential incurability of human schizotypicality, it alone could lead to a manageable psychic world. Important anniversaries or holy days are celebrations of divine destruction and near escape from destruction. Every truly religious anniversary celebration is therefore ambivalently tragic and joyful. Anniversary excesses and orgies, at both extremes of somberness and exuberance, are nevertheless occasions for the relief of tragic memory, more or less deeply suppressed. Anniversaries cluster around the great cycles of the ages, which give evidence of having been ...

... He had the advantage over Freud in that he had read the pioneer work of the apostate to whom he was writing. Thus he knew that the traumatic experience of the human race was not in repeated parricide in prehistoric caves, but in the horror of helpless man, who since the beginning of time has more than once been threatened with destruction by hostile elements-elements from which he burrowed in the ground "as a mole" or stampeded to sometimes fatal shelter in trembling mountain caves. Since the man from Topeka was away from the city during the tornado of 1966, I inquired how close he came to such an experience that he reacts the way he does to warning alerts. ...

... actually be the same period and may pinpoint the end of the last Ice Age as well as possibly the Flood. From the time of Adam to the time of the Exodus men are stated to have lived hundreds of fertile years.(7 ) Abrupt changes in life span seem to have occurred at the times of the Flood, the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, and the Exodus. Lynn Rose elaborated on the Biblical data and arrived at a number of hypotheses on the length of the Biblical year as compared to that of the present.(8 ) Rose and Vaughan in another article attempt to show differences in the Earth's sidereal year that could account for some of the ...

437. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... firm land; mountain-high tidal waves destroy continents and change the earth's topography. A science fiction plot? Not according to many authors who have presented a similar scenario as historical fact over the years. A supposed collision or near-collision between earth and an asteroid, comet, or planet in ancient times has been used variously as the explanation for the destruction of Atlantis (2 ) , the Deluge recorded in Genesis (3 ) , or the miraculous events connected with the Israelite Exodus from Egypt. (4 ) Immanuel Velikovsky has provided the most detailed arguments for such cosmic catastrophism, and his theories have a large and very vocal following among the general public. Worlds in Collision? Immanuel ...

... coast between the 38th and 43rd parallels, before it travelled across the Pacific Ocean and devastated the coasts of Hawaii and Hokkaido. We may surmise that this tsunami originated from a sudden change at the ocean bottom, related to faulting or mass movements. The main effects of the earthquake may be classed in 4 different categories: Partial or total destruction of buildings, roads, railways and harbour facilities, caused by the seismic shock proper. Destruction, mostly total, caused by the tsunami. Subsidence of a coastal strip several hundred kilometers long and probably tens of kilometers wide. Differences of 1.30 and 1.80m were measured between the present level and that before the quake ...

... the site when, in the Roman period, a new group of miners arrived in the Timna Valley. The situation between the 19th/20th Dynasty Stratum III and the Midianite Stratum II was also carefully examined: "The stratigraphic location of the olive green-grey interface of Stratum II, right on top of, or even in the habitation and destruction remains of Stratum III, without any intervening fill layers to indicate a period of abandonment, provided evidence for an almost direct continuation of the occupation of Site 200." (6 ) The shift from Stratum IV (Early 19th Dynasty and, perhaps, also 18th Dynasty) could not be as easily assessed by stratigraphic means: " ...

... descended in primitive times, and began their work of erosion and strata forming then, by tearing down old terranes, old islands, and continents, and carrying them to the sea-bottoms by currents. A volume might be published to show this old and current claim. Thus according to the prevailing view, every rock stratum was formed by the destruction of a pre-existing bed, and these pre-existing beds by others still older. So that there is absolutely no end in previously formed beds. But this theory does not tell us how the metals were locked up in the oldest strata and mainly kept there. It does not tell us why they were assorted. It does not pretend to ...
