261. From Myth to a Physical Model [Journals] [Aeon]
... This absence of invention forces us to ask: what unknown ancient experience could have produced the massive story content of myth, including hundreds of underlying patterns that have lasted for thousands of years? 4. All myths are associated with "the age of the gods." Now what do you think that people meant by that expression? The Egyptians called the lost epoch "the age of the primeval gods"- which began with the Tep Zepi, the First Time or Golden Age of Ra. The age of the gods was not only dramatically different from the present age, it represented for all ancient nations a preferred order, a standard and reference for all later activity. ...
262. A Brief Summary of the Evidence for a Gap in the Bible and Much Earlier Dates for Many of its Major Events [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to Solomon must refer to this late period? At no time around 1700 B.C . is there any known vizier in Egypt remotely corresponding to Joseph. Between 1400 and 1200 B.C . there is no record of any event in Egypt which might have been the source of the Hebrew account of the plagues. Nor did the Egyptians record the departure of any part of the population. It may not be surprising that there is no trace of this same group in the wilderness of the Negeb, but it is positively alarming that there is no archaeological evidence to support the Hebrew account of the invasion and conquest of the land of Canaan- burning and destroying towns there ...
263. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... no doubt a few other (deified) geographical features had a place in the sky. On the other hand the Typhon story is manifestly terrestrial in many ways (as Bob Forrest has argued) - Typhon is conceived in/under the Earth, ravages the Earth, lies imprisoned in/under the Earth; and the ultimate source in Egyptian myth (Typhon = Setekh) very clearly involves the earthly Nile flowing through the real Egypt. The point Ellenberger tackles is my objection to the relocation of the Atlantis story in the sky - together, presumably, with a celestial Greece (inhabited), Pillars of Hercules, Mediterranean, Atlantic (complete with impassable mud-banks).. ...
264. The Hyksos Pyramid Builders [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... had a rationale, and followed its own impeccable internal logic. Indeed it was constructed upon three quite separate dating blueprints. Thus, the history of the first millennium, which is known solely through the Classical and Hellenistic writers, was dated according to these sources. The history of the second millennium, however, was supplied by cross-referencing with Egyptian hieroglyphic material, and this chronology is based solely on these sources, which are dated according to Borchart's pseudo-astronomical "Sothic" calendar. The final part of the triplication, the ghost kingdoms of the third millennium, were supplied by cross-referencing with Mesopotamian cuneiform documents, and this chronology is based solely on these sources, which are ultimately dated ...
265. Some Additional Evidence from the Period from the Exodus to the End of the Eighteenth Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Review]
... a historical period in a country of advanced culture could not but leave a memory in historical documents. Thus Schaeffer missed drawing the proper conclusions for the synchronisation of the histories of Egypt and Israel, with all the ramifications and consequences for the history of the Near and Middle East. The Ipuwer papyrus (known also as "Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage") was recognised by me as a script of lament at the sight of an overwhelming natural catastrophe followed by the invasion of Amu-Hyksos and by a social upheaval, I also contended that the text was composed in the beginning of the Second Intermediate Period. At the time Ages in Chaos (Volume I) was printed, the ...
266. A Reading of the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Pensee]
... set of catastrophic myths, those found in the Pyramid Texts of Old Kingdom Egypt, to ground these generalities. Egypt is one of the most conservative and unified civilizations known. In my view it was also, in its early phases, among the least riven by the split between matter and spirit which is now our danger. For the Egyptians astronomy, the precise notation of heavenly movements, was inseparable from mythology, the theory of divine motivations, for the simple reason that all heavenly bodies were divine. And mythology was equally inseparable from historiography, the precise notation of human actions, for the simple reason that all memorable human actions had divine imperatives. This unity of thought ...
267. On Language, Art, And Religion. Part I Ch.4 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... Religion Semitic Influence on the Language and Religion of Egypt FOR OVER two hundred years after the fall of Jerusalem there existed a Jewish colony in Egypt. The influence of the Hebrew-Syrian language, conspicuous in the sixth century, must have become prominent in the time of Ramses III. This is indeed the case. In many instances Semitic words displaced Egyptian words, and the scribes of Ramses III "often abandoned a perfectly good Egyptian word" in favour of a Hebrew equivalent. In the inscriptions of Medinet Habu-to take one example at random-the Semitic word barekh, "to bless", is used instead of the corresponding Egyptian word.[1 ] "The Medinet Habu texts are extreme ...
268. Old Testament Tales, Part II - - Moses and History 'A' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... artifacts: then Egyptianised Canaanites' with pottery and bronzes like those in the governor's palace at site F, i.e . town dwellers sharing the governor's life-style; then a layer of ash. The next stratum shows dense Canaanite occupation in small 2-roomed houses: they must have proliferated, but their humble abodes suggest slave workers; with some Egyptians, possibly foremen, living there too. Enamel from human teeth towards the top of the stratum shows malnutrition was rife; and female adult skeletons outnumber males in the extraordinary ratio of 14:10 (infant skeletons cannot be sexed) – suggesting that a proportion of young males were being killed. The top of the stratum has multiple ...
269. Herakles and Velikovskian Catastrophism [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History II:2 (Jun 1980) Home | Issue Contents Herakles and Velikovskian Catastrophism Arie Dirkzwager During one of his travels the Greek Herakles (Hercules) met Busiris, an Egyptian king, who used to put strangers to death on sacrificial pyres. Thanks to his enormous strength Herakles managed to strangle the pharaoh and escape. Busiris is said to have been a grandson of Epaphus.1 Considering possible identifications for Epaphus we find, of course, Apop. Now there were two or three Hyksos kings of that name, as we know from the works of Velikovsky and others. One must have reigned at the beginning of the Hyksos period and one ...
270. Metallurgy and Chronology [Journals] [Pensee]
... so that pottery of different kinds is labeled in terms of metal periods, e.g ., ceramics of Late Bronze Ia or Early Iron IIb, and so on. We have already seen the confusion that underlies the division of ceramic ages. Here we intend to examine briefly the metal ages and their bearing on chronology. By bringing Egyptian history six or seven centuries closer to our time, do we not cause a displacement of the metal ages? A sailing vessel takes only two or three days to bring cargo from Egypt to Palestine; the desert road was traversed by Thutmose III with his army in nine days. One would expect that conventional chronology took into consideration the ...
