81. The Cities of the Plain [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... was ignoble enough to threaten withdrawal of his support of a grant if Rast and Schaub persisted in identifying these cities as the biblical pentapolis.[2 ] More recently, and in a more scholarly vein, James Sauer has pointed out that these ruins could not be the remains of the Cities of the Plain, since the evidence of their destruction fits the pattern of other EB III sites in Israel and Jordan[3 ] This was repeated by Stan Vaninger who also claimed that "Genesis 19 clearly depicts the destruction of the cities of the plain as a local catastrophe,"[4 ] the implication being that Sodom and Gomorrah would have to be datable in isolation outside the ...

82. Out of the Desert? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... conventional chronology, that this dating places both events in the Egyptian 18th Dynasty and the Late Bronze Age, leads him to reject this dating. Canaan was controlled by strong pharaohs, while John Garstang's evidence for linking the Israelites to the Habiru of the Amarna Letters had been refuted by Kathleen Kenyon in relation to the evidence for an LB II destruction of Jericho. The picture of Palestine derived from Joshua and Judges was incompatible with that in relevant 18th and 19th Dynasty texts. As regards the Exodus, Stiebing identifies the cities of Pithom and Raamses, built by Israelite slave labour, with Tell er Retabah and Tell el-Dab'a respectively. The former was abandoned between the Hyksos period and the ...

... fatherless, nor the widow, neither shed innocent blood" (22:3 ). Daily he went through the streets of Jerusalem and its broad places, warning the population of the city: "I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, 0 my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried" (4 :19-20). Jeremiah stood behind Josiah and his pledge to defend Babylonia against attack by Egypt, and though Josiah lost the battle at Megiddo, the prophet remained all his life true to his Babylonian orientation. He saw that the people were not aware of the growing might of the Chaldeans and ...

Its conception goes back to the 1940's when much of the material was first written. The present article has benefited from the editorial assistance of Jan Sammer who, unless otherwise indicated, added the bracketed referential material and fine-tuned the text.- LMG THE AGE OF THE DEAD SEA "With the end of the Tertiary period, in an event of extreme violence . . . ...

86. Ebla and Near East Chronology Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History V:1 (Jan 1983) Home | Issue Contents Ebla and Near East Chronology Part I Phillip Clapham Ebla and Naram Sin Paolo Matthiae, excavator of Tell Mardikh, the ancient city of Ebla,[l ] dates the destruction of level MIIBI (royal archives phase) to the campaigns in the west waged by Naram Sin, fourth king of Akkad. Historians seem too hasty in attributing such destruction levels to human agency and conquest. They do not appear to entertain the idea of natural disaster, Velikovskian or otherwise, and seem to ignore the nature of conquest, acquisition. The succeeding level at Ebla, MIIB2, similarly ended in ...

... the air on high, and would thus add to descending " mists." 100 The Earth's Annular System. and if possible draw any other conclusion than that this earth, in the ordering of nature, was fated for a coming fall of water. What is more natural ? And what natural visitation could be more appalling, far-sweeping and destructive, than this inevitable dispensation ? I presume the biblical narrative of the flood is in the possession of every reader of these pages and I will therefore not insert it here. The first impression given to the reader of the Mosaic account is the universality of the falling waters, which of course necessitates an annular source. Can the philosophic ...

... loyalty group allow the rest to believe. We can now construct a model for the Velikovsky Affair. When Velikovsky appeared to question the group's faith in the traditional history of the Solar System and the geological history of the Earth and even the hegemony of Newtonian gravitation, the reaction of the ASG (fury, panic, astonishment, insult, destructiveness) had nothing to do with whether or not Velikovsky was a qualified astronomer or did or did not supply precise numbers to his predictions. It had perhaps a little to do with defense of the ASG's role as astronomers, but it had everything to do with defense of the PCP as a religious dogma, as the cherished and envied ...

... In my view these burials come too early in the sequence of strata at Tell el-Dab'a, and too early in the MBA generally, to fit the evidence for the Conquest of Canaan which we are about to consider. 2. The Conquest of Canaan In my very first contribution to SISR in 1976 [8 ], I argued that the destructions which mark the end of the MBA in Palestine (conventionally dated to around 1550BC) provide the missing evidence for the biblical conquest of Canaan under Joshua. At the same time, in Redating the Exodus and Conquest [9 ], I tried to make the same case without challenging the conventional chronology. However, I have no doubt ...
