... the times in the past that events occurred between which there could otherwise be no detectable connection whatever. In other words it will demonstrate the contemporaneity, or otherwise, between major environmental changes (such as alterations in the sea level, in the extent of the ice sheets, volcanic eruptions) and human events (such as migrations and the destruction of cities and cultures). We may consider some examples (all dates mentioned are in radiocarbon years). A test could be devised for the First General Theory- have global catastrophes occurred in the past?-using the available data on sea level changes in Europe. Many fluctuations in the sea level have occurred there since the end ...

... found .. .. " Finally, Moses wrote that "there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt." As Ipuwer succinctly put it, "The land is not light." Verses common to both sources told of Egyptians searching frantically for water, the death (or loss) of fish and grain, massive destruction of trees and crops, plague upon the cattle, a great cry (or groaning) throughout the land, a consuming fire, darkness, and the escape of slaves. Moses did not specifically say that the pharaoh had perished in the Red Sea, but Ipuwer lamented the king's disappearance at the hands of poor men under circumstances that ...

... recalled in the ancient tales that preserve the collective dream of Easter Island. The drama opens with the legend of Hotu-Matua, the hero who led the original contingent of settlers to the island from an unknown place called Marae Renga. One version of the story tells that a great catastrophe was in progress and that Hotu-Matua's expedition sailed to escape the destruction in their homeland. According to the legend, an enraged god, Uoke, was causing widespread natural disaster. Accompanied by violent storms, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions, the angry god used a giant lever to pry up land from beneath the sea which sank again when he moved to a new place. He worked with such fury ...

444. The Body in Tomb KV55 [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... and it has been suggested that it was originally a good fit but was subsequently sawn off before being reattached. The face panel had been violently ripped off in what could be interpreted as an act of ritual desecration or murder of the person's spirit. The cartouche identifying the occupant had been erased neatly. This suggests an officially-sanctioned activity rather than destruction by tomb-robbers. The Canopic jars in the niche were of beautiful design, but text from the front had been carefully erased. The heads are a poor fit to the bases and give every appearance of not ever having been a matched set. Overall the items do not appear to have been originally made for the tomb occupant, but ...

... be linked to the root Amu which Velikovsky connected with the Amalekites but in Egyptian records was a blanket term applied to bedouin on the periphery of the Nile valley, including the highland zone between the Nile and the Red Sea [6 ]. At one stage the Amorites were thought to have been responsible for the end of EB age site destructions in the late 3rd millennium BC but now it is recognised that they were in effect the survivors of these upheavals. Various attempts at revising ancient history have focused on relocating the Exodus and Conquest at the end of the Early Bronze Age as an alternative to the end of the Middle Kingdom, including Marvin Luckerman in the US and Bob ...

... 7:10) Had the "primordial light" served as God's signal to Noah to go into the Ark? Thus we have evidence from the Jewish myths that on two occasions a brief, bright light has flooded this Earth. Can Saturn have been this Primordial Light? 3. The Disruption of Saturn The most striking myth of the destruction of Saturn is that in the Egyptian referring to the demise of Osiris at the hands of Seth (75). Osiris is dismembered. Other destruction motifs relating to the end of Saturn are given by de Santillana and von Dechend with reference to the destruction of the Mill, where before it finally sank into the sea it ground out ...

... and Humboldt's Researches. But let us see exact]y what the great Alexander von Humboldt had to say about catastrophes and world ages: The most prominent feature among the analogies observed in the monuments, the manners and traditions of the people of Asia and America, is that which the Mexican mythology exhibits in the cosmogonical fiction of the periodic destructions and regenerations of the world. This fiction . . . goes back to the highest antiquity. The sacred books of the Hindoos. especially the Bhagavata Pourana speak of the four aces, and of the pralayas, or cataclysms, which at different epochs have destroyed the human race. A tradition of five ages analogous with that of the ...

She says (113-4) that Olduvai Gorge "assumed its present form, with narrow floor and steep sides, in Post-Pleistocene times, when erosion cut right down into the Pleistocene deposits, thereby exposing the great series of sediments seen today ...

', smoking star', tailed star', etc. The following description of Venus from Siberian Russia (Yakut) is but one of numerous examples that could be provided: It is said to be the daughter of the Devil and to have had a tail in the early days'. If it approaches the earth, it means destruction, storm, and frost, even in the summer; Saint Leontius, however, blessed her and thus her tail disappeared'. ' [13] Scholars have tended to brush these traditions aside as products of mythical imagination. Rarely has anyone sought to discover whether similar traditions were to be found in other cultures in order to gain ...

... Satan', the `bringer of darkness', or `tainter of the air', had reigned over the earth .68 But at last the terrible destroyer had disappeared and things had begun to improve. So far the passage is only an augmenting repetition of myth twenty-one. But the twenty-third myth also introduces a new idea: the destruction of the destroyer is not final. This trait makes the twenty-third myth stand by itself among all similar ones in the mythology of the world, say, the Babylonian report, or the primitive Jewish one, or that of the Edda. Once Tiamat has been killed, she is dead; once Yahweh has slain Tohu-wa-Bohu, there is ...
