161. Hatshepsut and the Queen of Sheba: A Critique of Velikovsky's Identification and an Alternative View [Journals] [SIS Review]
... royalty (2 Samuel 13:29; 16:1-2; 17:23; 18:9 ; 19:26; 1 Kings 1:33, 38, 44; 2:40; 10:25; 13:13 f.). In addition, Solomon possessed horses and chariots, which were also used by the Egyptians (1 Kings 9:19 22; 10:28-9). Furthermore, while Hatshepsut's Punt-reliefs depict a sea voyage to a coastal region, and no overland journey (as will be explained in detail below), the Bible, in contrast, speaks of an overland journey by camel-caravan, and makes no reference to a sea voyage ...
162. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... , from all corners of the world, we are told that, "in the beginning," there was no Sun, no Moon, no stars. The planetary god of beginnings, we are told ad nauseam, ruled alone and in darkness. Whether we turn to the pages of Genesis in the Old Testament or to the ancient Egyptian myths of creation, the message is always the same; whether we seek the first appearance of the Hebrew Elohim or that of the Egyptian Atum, it is always stated that the god existed alone in darkness. We find the same situation in the ancient texts of India, not only among the Hindus but even among the lesser tribes ...
163. The Answer to Clapham's Question: Revise! [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... on conventional Near Eastern chronologies to support his proposed corrections is misguided. Clapham asserts the basic accuracy of the conventional chronologies based on nothing more than an undocumented assertion concerning the radiocarbon evidence. While many conventional chronologists claim the radiocarbon evidence confirms the conventional chronologies, objective analysis suggests the opposite. Typically, those who use radiocarbon results to defend the Egyptian chronology ignore the "old wood" problem, misuse statistics, and rely upon dubious methodologies to make the data fit.49 If they studied the data more carefully they would find that comparisons of radiocarbon dates from associated Egyptian materials indicate that the Egyptians regularly used quite old wood.50 Such comparisons indicate that the typical wood radiocarbon date ...
164. The Bible Myth : The African Origins Of The Jewish People by Gary Greenberg (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... ", would have been a much more accurate title for the book as a whole. The word "African" in the subtitle is also rather misleading. One might be led to expect something along the lines of Martin Bernal's Black Athena or Richard Poe's Black Spark, White Fire. Instead, we find that Greenberg is referring primarily to Egyptian origins, and not to Africa as a whole. "Africa" and "African" are not even in the Index. This book was previously published as The Moses Mystery, which would have been a much more accurate title. Ironically, the principal virtue of the book is its clarity. Greenberg tells us exactly what he thinks ...
165. Abraham In Egypt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , mythology, and geology, as well as evidence from a host of other disciplines, could be called upon in support. However, my main purpose here is to attempt a reconstruction of early Hebrew history on the supposition that Velikovsky's ideas could be correct. If he was on the right track, we may suppose that the evidence from Egyptian history (which is well documented) will support him. We may also suppose that previously obscure parts of Genesis will become explicable. In Velikovsky's interpretation, Abraham's tribe would thus appear to have migrated from Ur in a great population movement which coincided with the catastrophic termination of Early Bronze civilization in Mesopotamia. The initial movement was led by ...
166. Pillars of Straw [Journals] [Aeon]
... ever seen or heard me state such a thing? Just because I do not agree with the chronological revisions of ancient history that the revisionists he champions have concocted does not mean that I accept "the established chronology." In fact, I do not and have never done so. Like Ginenthal and others, I, too, deem Egyptian history as presently "established" to be far too long. Like Ginenthal and others, I, too, believe that the various dark ages which have been foisted on ancient Near Eastern history by Egyptologists to have been non-existent. Like Ginenthal and others, I, too, would shorten ancient Near Eastern history. And, like Ginenthal ...
167. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Journals] [Pensee]
... their kind across the greatest distances of land and water. No one should look askance at Velikovsky's bridging the gap between the hundred-gated Thebes of Egypt and the seven-gated Thebes in Boeotia during one of the most international periods of history (the Amarna Age), when the Aegean and Egypt were in close touch with each other. At that time Egyptian wares appear in Greece, and Mycenean wares in Egypt- as we know from archeological discoveries. To round out the record, we have rich written documentation from Egypt (including the international correspondence from Amarna) and from Greece where the recently deciphered Linear A and B tablets supplement Homer's reference to Oedipus and the later dramatic forms of the story ...
168. A Return to the Two Sargons and Their Successors [Journals] [Aeon]
... Heinsohn chose Naram-Sin as the alter ego of Ninos rather than Sargon. Narmer Bronze head from the Akkadian period, Nineveh, believed by some to represent Sargon of Akkad, now in the Iraq Museum, Baghdad. (Illustration by Marie-Josčphe Devaux.) Not being satisfied with this, Heinsohn next identifies his Ninos/Nimrod/Naram-Sin with the Egyptian king Narmer.  In this respect, Heinsohn himself called attention to what he considered an anomaly. As Jill Abery succinctly phrased it for him: "Other material styles reached a peak in the Old Akkadian culture, only to disappear and reappear later with the Old Assyrians. Among later material was a seal depicting a bull ...

... Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Africa, Central and South America (1 )- and has found its way into the works of various mythologists, all of whom have offered their own interpretation concerning the significance of this ovum mundi. Wallis Budge, echoing the beliefs of Brugsch, described the primitive credo concerning the cosmic egg of the ancient Egyptians in these words: [In the beginning] nothing existed except a boundless primeval mass of water which was shrouded in darkness and which contained within itself the germs or beginnings, male and female, of everything which was to be in the future world. The divine primeval spirit which formed an essential part of the primeval matter felt within ...
170. New Proposals for a Downdating of the Egyptian New Kingdom (Part II) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XV:2 (July 1993) Home | Issue Contents New Proposals for a Downdating of the Egyptian New Kingdom (Part II)Jeremy Goldberg Turning to western Asia, the suggested redating of Ramesses II (setting his year 67 = ca. 1010 instead of 1213) would seem to have many advantages. E.g . the unfortified beginning of the Israelite settlement' (which appears to have started during the earlier part of the Dyn. 20 period) would reflect the military security enjoyed during the fluorit of the United Monarchy (cf. 10/2 ,26f. for biblical evidence of Israel's largely unsettled state before this time) ...
