141. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Journals] [Kronos]
... ? Would not the comet then loom as a mythical image of vast influence, entirely out of proportion to historical "reality"? We ask this rhetorical question only to stress our approach's potential conflict with conventional interpretations and their unspoken assumptions about "the way the ancient sky looked". To the above-cited comet symbols one can compare the following Egyptian hieroglyphs: "beard" "lock of hair" or "sidelock" "feather" or "plume" "torch" of "flame" "rope", "tie", or "knot" "serpent" To state the obvious, Egyptologists do not think of comets when they see these images, so we are ...
142. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... basis of his own research, came to the same conclusion: "The sky, instead of being dominated alternately by the Sun and the Moon, was constantly dominated by a single huge and luminous body, here called Aster." (17) David Talbott has also focused attention on this topic. As he had it stated: The Egyptians remembered the creator as the solitary Atum or Ra, whom we recognize as the planet Saturn. In the accounts of all periods, Ra is originally a solitary god. The ancient sun is he...who had no companions. (18) "I am Atum, when I was alone in Nun," the god ...
143. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... terms of giving a good match with the biblical record: - 1). Egypt entered a dark age (the First Intermediate Period) as might be expected following the loss of its Pharaoh and army, most of its crops and animals, and some of its other wealth. The disasters of the Ipuwer Papyrus [ 'Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage'], some of them paralleling the Exodus plagues, are normally put at this time (CAH I:2 , pp. 200-1) although Velikovsky and others have argued for a placement in the Second Intermediate Period. The Prophecy of Neferti' also tells of disasters between the Old and Middle Kingdoms (Gardiner 1961, p ...
144. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the pre-Deuteronomist compilation may represent a recent amalgam (reigns of David and/or Solomon) of the various tribes plus the indigenous traditions of the region. [6 ] In addition, the date of the pre-Deuteronomist editor might be gleaned from the actual format of the catalog of conquered cities listed in Joshua- distinctly similar to the format of Egyptian topographical lists. These were drawn up in honor of pharaoh, his campaigns, regions made to pay tribute, and cities conquered. [7 ] Logically we might suppose some degree of Egyptian influence on Israel at the time of the pre-Deuteronomist editor to warrant the inclusion, such as could have been exercised by Shishak, father-in-law of Solomon ...
145. Chapter 2 The Sphinx [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS 38 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 CHAPTER 2 THE SPHINX All ancient Near Eastern history is based solely on that of ancient Egypt. Velikovsky explained this long ago: "The student of ancient history . . . is accustomed to relate the chronology of the entire ancient East to Egyptian reckoning. A system of relative chronology can be established by excavation in any country that has been long inhabited, but it is left hanging in the air until linked up with Egypt, whether directly or indirectly through a third region. ' [O .G .S . Crawford, Man and His Past (London 1921), p. 72] ...
146. The Great Father [Books]
... long before the idea of God received its spiritual and philosophical elevation in Hebrew and Greek thought. To the ancients themselves the entire question was simply a matter of concrete history: the present world is a fragmented copy of an earlier age, in which the supreme light god stood alone in a primeval sea, occupying the cosmic centre. Ancient Egyptian texts repeatedly invoke a singular figure worshipped as the greatest and highest light of the primeval age. One of his many names was Atum, a god "born in the Abyss before the sky existed, before the earth existed." (2 ) These are the words of the Pyramid Texts, perhaps the world's oldest religious hymns, ...
147. Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1990 No 1 (June 1990) Home | Issue Contents Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology by R. M. Porter It is the purpose of this article to recap on some of the proposed revisions and then to propose yet another which is mainly a synthesis of earlier ideas. The title of the article stems from a belief that if Solomon (and of course his son Rehoboam and their Egyptian contemporary Shishak) and the Exodus and Abraham can be correctly synchronised with the history of Egypt then everything else will fall into place. It is not the purpose of this article to prove anything but to propose a scheme ...
148. A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible - From Myth to History by David M. Rohl [Journals] [SIS Review]
... concerned with the Late Bronze and early Iron Ages and the transition between the two periods, Rohl covers the much longer period between the early Israelite monarchy and the Third Intermediate Period (TIP) in Egypt. Third, most of the data used by James and his colleagues are archaeological, whereas Rohl bases much of his reconstruction of biblical and Egyptian history on synchronisms derived from detailed comparisons of the Old Testament and Egyptian historical texts. Finally, Rohl argues in favour of a reduction of some 350 years both in Egyptian New Kingdom dates and in the transition from the Late Bronze to the early Iron Ages, rather than the 250 postulated by James and his colleagues. This book has ...
149. Ash [Journals] [Pensee]
... to decide between these two datings. I.V . November 7, 1953 DEAR DR. VELIKOVSKY: Thank you for your good letter of the 4th. I was glad to receive it and to hear that the radio-carbon dating of Dr. W. F. Libby of the University of Chicago confirms some of your own new dates in Egyptian and Near Eastern history before the Persian Period. I would be delighted to confirm your conclusions by sending to Dr. Libby some organic substance from an Egyptian object (such as an Egyptian mummy case) from the New Kingdom (18th to 20th dynasty) if I could find one in the Harvard Semitic Museum. Unfortunately we have nothing ...
150. Evidence of the Prophets and Egypt [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... up against a nation, O house of Israel . . . and they shall afflict you from the entering in of Hemath unto the river of the wilderness [valley of the Arabah] " (6 :14). Israel was "to go into captivity beyond Damascus" (5 :27). Ashdod (the Philistines) and Egyptians were bidden: "Assemble yourselves upon the mountains of Samaria" to behold the tumult and oppression of the people by the nobles (Amos 3:9 ). Israel had become a nation where the citizens had no civil rights. Famine, "pestilence after the manner of Egypt," and defeat in war had befallen Israel ( ...
