181. EARLY GLASSMAKING AND CHRONOLOGICAL PUZZLES [Journals] [Aeon]
... even then, remained "very rare in Egypt during a major part of the fifteenth century B.C ." (11) Because of this rarity (as well as certain aspects of design) it is believed to have come from some foreign source rather than from local glass-works. One has to be cautious about these statements of earliest Egyptian glass because excavation reports dating from a period when glass items were not yet carefully recorded do contain information about glass prior to the New Kingdom (conventionally recorded between -1567 and -1085): "In the finds of the Hyksos period, mention is made here and there of small vessels which may be of glass."(12) ...
182. Hatshepsut, The Queen of Sheba and Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2003 No 3 (October 2003) Home | Issue Contents ARTICLE Hatshepsut, The Queen of Sheba and Velikovsky Emmet J Sweene PART I This is the first of a two part article responding to those writers who, over the years, have criticised Velikovsky's identification of the Egyptian ruler Hatshepsut with the biblical Queen of Sheba. In 1999, David Lorton placed a paper ( 'Hatshepsut, the Queen of Sheba and Velikovsky') on the Internet where it has been read by many people. Another article, by John Bimson, was published in C&C Review vol. VIII, 1986, and was very influential with many people in ...
183. Rockenbach's 'De Cometis' and the Identity of Typhon [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Velikovsky's revised chronology. Let us begin by looking at the sentence in its context, using Dr Sutherland's translation. After describing the physical appearance of the comet, Rockenbach says: ". .. It was called Typhon after the king then holding the lordship of Egypt. This king, as reliable men assert, subjugated the kings of the Egyptians by the help of the giants . The comet was also seen, as if rolling along another road in Syria, Babylonia, and India; it was in the sign of Capricorn, in the form of a wheel. This was at the time the Children of Israel were led from Egypt to the Promised Land.... ...
184. The Amarna Period and Levantine Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... relate to the Levant will be discussed. Content In the Amarna tablets we are dealing with a body of foreign correspondence. Since there is a certain amount of social and political detail in these, we can look for a Biblical period in which this fits best. During the reigns of Amenhotep 3 and Akhenaten there was a virtual cessation of Egyptian activity in this area, and the campaign led by Horemheb during Tutankhamun's reign was the first resurgence of military interest here. There is an alternative view which claims that in fact the Levant was always this tumultuous and difficult to govern, and the Amarna letters simply give us a window on this which is absent in other periods. However ...
185. Joseph and Imhotep [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIII:2 (July 1991) Home | Issue Contents Joseph and Imhotep John W. Hand Abstract Egyptian and Hebrew literature both refer to a period when the Nile River did not come for seven years causing famine in the land of Egypt. The two accounts have many common elements. They are also related in time. The viziers at the time, Joseph in the Hebrew record and Imhotep in the Egyptian story have so much in common that they must be one and the same person. Seven Lean Years Egypt depends upon the Nile today as it did yesterday for water to irrigate its crops which provides its livelihood. In addition, the ...
186. Generalists, Specialists, "Pereset", and Ancient Astronomical Awareness [Journals] [Kronos]
... Contents FORUM Generalists, Specialists, "Pereset", and Ancient Astronomical Awareness To the Editor of KRONOS: Having the onerous honour to be the present Editor of the S.I .S . Review, I have recently undergone a lengthy correspondence with an American researcher (non-Velikovskian and non-catastrophist) who is developing a revision of his own of Egyptian and Israelite history. As well as discussing the relative merits of Velikovsky's revision and his own, he sounded off regarding the dangers of specialisation and the advantages of being a "generalist". Lack of specialisation, he felt, was Man's natural state and had made him the earth's superior creature; our present culture, encouraging further and ...
187. The Eye Goddess [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon V:5 (Jan 2000) Home | Issue Contents The Eye Goddess Ev Cochrane The Egyptian Hathor provides an archetypal example of the mother goddess. From time immemorial, she was regarded as the mother of Horus, the Egyptian war-god believed to have been incarnate in the pharaoh. The goddess' very name commemorates this relationship, signifying "House of Horus." [1 ] Scholars have hitherto been at a loss to explain the fundamental nature of this great goddess. They have been puzzled not only by her name, but by her multifarious and seemingly incompatible characteristics. In a recent study, Alison Roberts offered the following: "My initial problem was ...
... Chapter XXXV The Origin of Egyptian Astronomy (Continued)- The Thebes School THE next question which arises now that we have considered the facts relating to the astronomy of Northern Egypt is one connected with the cults which we have proved to come down the Nile. Were they indigenous or imported? Although I have put it forward with all reserve, there is evidence which suggests that the temples so far traced sacred to the southern cult are of earlier foundation than those to the north, and they are associated with Edfû and Philae, which are known to be of high antiquity. This is one point of difference. Another is that the almost entire absence of Set temples and ...
189. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... luminous orb was exhaled or spit out by Saturn. The god externalized his heart or soul. Now, a comet- like stream reaching upward from Venus toward Saturn (hence, not originally seen as a connecting stream) took on the form of a simple spiral or curl- what I have called the lifebreath curl- reflected in the Egyptian hieroglyph . Mythically, this vital form of the mother goddess was viewed as a revolving beard, sidelock, or feather, a rope or thread curling out from Saturn, a curling serpent (or protruding serpent neck and head), and a torch or flame. Hence, it is no coincidence that the word-images used to depict these ...
190. Introduction - Ages in Chaos? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... through the centuries. Instead, it was re-assembled in the late 19th and early 20th centuries from the fragmentary information available. Those remnants of ancient Egypt which survive, magnificent though some are, give us only a glimpse of what has been. As the eminent Egyptologist, Sir Alan Gardiner, wrote in 1961, What is proudly advertised as Egyptian history is merely a collection of rags and tatters' [1 ]. One surviving account of Egyptian history was written by a Greek, Herodotus, who lived in the fifth century BC [2 ]. Herodotus has been called the father of history' but also the father of lies', because he recorded uncritically what he had ...
