From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home | Issue Contents Sequence and events From: email@example.com (James Conway) Date: Thu, 25 Feb 1999 18:26:35 -0800 (PST) Henry Zecher: If Velikovsky identified a Middle Kingdom Egyptian with Joseph, Donovan Courville also identified one. Perhaps it was the same one. Clark Whelton: Velikovsky has the so-called "Middle Kingdom" (the Egyptians did not use such terminology) ending with the first Venus catastrophe ca. -1450. James Conway: The Middle Kingdom ends with the 12th dynasty or the first half of the 18th century BCE. Joseph lived and worked ...
294. The Sothic Dating of the Twelfth and Eighteenth Dynasties [Journals] [Kronos]
... require answers. THE ILLAHUN DATE In 1899, on the basis of two papyrus fragments found in the precincts of a temple at Illahun, Borchardt proposed that together, one before and one after the event, they confirmed a heliacal rising of Sirius on the sixteenth day of the fourth month of the second season (the eighth month of the Egyptian civil year) of the seventh year of a pharaoh whose name appeared on neither fragment. They were nevertheless to be assigned to Sesostris III because their handwriting was the same as that found on other fragments of a temple register for years five to nine, securely dated to Sesostris III.(3 ) This conclusion by Borchardt, according ...
295. The "So-Called" Fixed Sothic Date of Sesostris III, 1872 B. C. [Journals] [Kronos]
... Holborn, London WCIV 7AX. - LMG This date is based on the work of Parker (1950) and Neugebauer (1938). Examination of the facts, however, shows that the date rests on certain very doubtful assumptions, and that there is absolutely no evidence at all for a Sothic cycle having had any effect on the ancient Egyptians. It is assumed by Parker (a ) that a lunar calendar existed (which is a quite reasonable assumption since all primitive peoples recognise the lunar cycle, which, however, repeats itself every 25 years ); (b ) that the Egyptians, after years of observation and written records, introduced a civil calendar (in Parker's ...

The Moabites shrank from meeting Hadad alone, and they made an alliance with the Midianites. In the thick of the fight the Moabites fled from the field of battle, leaving the Midianites to their fate, and these deserted allies of theirs were cut down ...
297. Velikovsky and the El-Amarna period [Journals] [SIS Review]
... & Catastrophism Review 2002:2 (Feb 2003) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky and the El-Amarna period Sjef van Asten Summary A combination of Velikovsky's thesis, the Glasgow Chronology' and the studies of Gunnar Heinsohn indicate that the El-Amarna period can be placed in the 7th century BC. The data from these chronologies are supported by additional arguments from Egyptian and biblical history and from Greek legends and point to about 680BC for the end of the El-Amarna period. Although some fine-tuning is required, the final conclusions do not contradict previous studies on Assyrian history, indicating the end of this period at the end of the 8th century BC. Introduction Conventional history places the time of Amenhotep III, ...
298. Dating the Wars of Seti I [Journals] [SIS Review]
... reign should see a turning-point in Egypt's affairs, Seti appended the phrase "Repetition of Births" (indicating a time of renaissance) to dates in his first and second regnal years, and incorporated the expression in his royal names. In his first year he embarked on military campaigns which, conventionally viewed, were aimed at restoring the crumbling Egyptian empire in Palestine and Syria, thus reversing the disintegration which had occurred in the reign of Akhnaton. These campaigns took Seti as far north as the Orontes valley, where he became the first pharaoh to meet the Hittites in battle. His successes are depicted in a series of reliefs at Karnak, "the most extensive series of war ...
299. Twelfth Or Fourth Century?. Part I Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... This view required reducing the time of the Israelites' entrance into Canaan to sometime after - 1200, a view not without supporters; in that scheme the time of the Judges is reduced to a little over one hundred years, instead of the traditional four hundred. To discover the true relationship between the Mycenaean, the biblical, and the Egyptian sequences of events, the historical material left by Ramses III needs to be re-examined. We shall deal first with his palace at Tell el-Yahudiya, close to the apex of the Delta in the north, and then with his mortuary temple at Medinet Habu across the Nile from Luxor and Karnak. [1 ] Ed. Meyer places the ...
300. Are The Venus Tablets Missing?, Atwater Thrown Overboard. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... priestly astrologers undoubtedly observed Venus generations before. The records are discussed by Langdon and Fotheringham in The Venus Tablets of Ammizaduga.... Dr. Velikovsky refers to these tablets in a footnote but does not indicate their content. In fact, systematic observations of Venus are at least as old as 3000 B.C . Ancient Babylonians and Egyptian watchers of the skies saw the planet exactly as we see it. Kaempffert ended his article with angry words about a theory that requires the rewriting of every textbook on astronomy, biology, geology, cultural anthropology, and ancient history. If not for the years that must have been needed to collate the hundreds of citations and footnotes, ...
