241. Ages In Chaos. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... with, the age of the Dead Sea, strangely enough, would be less than 6,000 or even 5,000 years. (1 ) Was it formed in the days of the Exodus, when Mount Sinai erupted and some debacle took place at the Sea of Passage? Was the catastrophe felt also in Egypt? Does any Egyptian document speak of a catastrophe? I inquired and consulted books, but no book on the history of Egypt mentioned any such catastrophe. Then I came upon a reference to a sage, Ipuwer, who bewailed the fact that the river Nile had turned to blood. I searched for the source and found it in an edition by Alan ...
... Chapter XXVIII The Fixed Year and Festival Calendars THE reformation of the Egyptian calendar, to be gathered, as I suggested in the last chapter, from the decree of Tanis, is not, however, the point to which reference is generally made in connection with the decree. The attempt recorded by it to get rid of the vague year is generally dwelt on. Although the system of reckoning which was based on the vague year had advantages with which it has not been sufficiently credited, undoubtedly it had its drawbacks. The tetramenes, with their special symbolism of flood-, seed-, and harvest-time, had apparently all meant each in turn; however the meanings of ...
243. Dating the "Admonitions": Advance Report [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1909 examination of the papyrus: "The view that our Leiden papyrus contains allusions to the Hyksos has the better support from the historical standpoint, but philological and other considerations seem rather to point to the seventh and tenth dynasties [between Old and Middle Kingdoms] as those which have provided the background of events." (Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage, Leipzig. 1909, p. 18) Adducing new evidence in his conclusion, he felt able to apply the statements regarding the Asiatics to the conditions of the earlier period, and gave as his final verdict on the Admonitions: It need not be too hastily assumed that their composition was contemporary with the events to which they ...
244. The Saturn Thesis (Part 2) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Comaetho, and Aphrodite Comaetho means the long-haired or flaming-haired Venus. The comparative approach will not only show that this is not an isolated motif; it will show that recurring contexts of the motif are remarkably consistent with the recorded cosmic history of Venus. Aphrodite Comaetho is a counterpart to the Incan Venus as long-haired star; a counterpart to the Egyptian Isis (Venus) who spreads her hair across the face of the sun god Ra; counterpart to the Sumerian Inanna who (in the form of Geshtinanna) "whirls her hair in heaven;" counterpart to the Babylonian Ishtar, "the one with hair." To understand Aphrodite Comaetho literally, as the Comet Venus, one ...
... Chapter XXXVIII The Influence of Egypt Upon Temple-orientation in Greece IN the final pages of this book I have to show that recent investigations have put beyond all doubt the fact that the astronomical observations and temple-worship of the Egyptians formed the basis first of Greek and later of Latin temple-building. I have indicated in a former chapter that in our own days, and in our own land, the idea of orientation which I have endeavoured to work out for Egypt still holds its own. It was more than probable, therefore, that we should find the intermediate stages in those countries whither by universal consent Egyptian ideas percolated. Among these, Greece holds the first place, as it was ...

247. Saturn As King (Addenda et Corrigenda) [Journals] [Kronos]
... any dead language, there remain obscurities which provide material for learned controversy, and the languages of the ancient Near East more so than most."(2 ) Lowery's main objection seems to rest on my blind reliance on Budge's work. The collective works of Budge are a veritable mine of information but, meanwhile, the study of the Egyptian language has progressed immensely since his time. Concerning certain matters, I should therefore have consulted more recent sources. For instance, in my article I stated that "the more popular word pharaoh' is a Hebraized title of the king of Egypt. In Egyptian the word is Per'o'."(3 ) This is only correct ...
248. Velikovsky, Glasgow and Heinsohn Combined [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , together with various other types of evidence, demonstrates beyond reasonable doubt that at least two thousand years needs to be removed from the ancient history of the Near East. The first person to suggest that there was something fundamentally wrong with the timescales of ancient history was of course Immanuel Velikovsky and in the early 1950s he proposed that 18th Dynasty Egyptian chronology was too long by around 500 years. Ages in Chaos Vol. 1, published in 1952, demonstrated to the world how, if those 500 years were removed, the histories of Egypt and Israel, which had hitherto shown almost no correspondence whatsoever, could be made to fit', much like matching pieces of a jigsaw ...
249. Sidelights on Velikovsky's 'Ages in Chaos' [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... II was the last of their dynasts to hold the throne at their capital city Avaris. Velikovsky feels confident that the name is merely a variant of the Amalekite Agag, the name of the last of their dynasts in the book of Samuel. However, we have no explanation of the way in which the consonant in Agag changed to the Egyptian labial. This is how I imagine it occurred. When the Arnalekitcs arrived in devastated Egypt they found the religion of the land utterly alien to their own. "They' ruled ignoring Ra," says a native papyrus.4 They learned from the people who submitted to their tyranny with scarcely a struggle that the sun-god Ra had ...
250. The Ark in Action [Books] [de Grazia books]
... had to wear the blue ephod, a gorgeous pullover to whose skirt are attached golden bells, "and it shall be upon Aaron when he ministers, and its sound shall be heard when he goes into the holy place before the Lord, and when he comes out, lest he die." Petrie reproduces from an Egyptian priestly garment a border of "lotus-flowers and seed-vessels" that seem like "bells and pomegranates." Few doubt, however, that the Israelite bells would ring. Cassuto says that they would sound so that the priest would not enter the sanctuary unannounced and irreverently. And in departure the priest would prostrate himself and the bells' sound ...
