301. 'Worlds in Collision' After Heinsohn [Journals] [SIS Review]
... dates by Velikovsky on the basis of written records from Bronze Age' and Iron Age' civilisations only, my summary of Heinsohn's compressions of chronology is confined to the bodies of evidence labelled by these problematic phrases. Heinsohn's compressions may be said to be four times as complicated as Velikovsky's: Velikovsky shortened the chronologies of Egypt and cultures dated by Egyptian artefacts but Heinsohn shortens the chronologies of Egypt, Mesopotamia, Israel and Greece - and, accordingly, of all other cultures dated by artefacts from any of these, ranging from Spain to the Indus Valley. Since there are different sources of error in the four chronologies, his revisions of them are based sometimes on independent grounds but sometimes ...
302. Fingerprints of the Gods: do ancient relicts point to an advanced civilisation 15,000 years ago? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... this subject of similarities between Egypt and Mexico, may I draw attention to another - the double puma' symbol found at Uxmal in Yucatan. It is quite distinctive, two felines back to back, and this is a symbol that we find again and again in the mythology of ancient Egypt. It is a very common feature of ancient Egyptian art called Aker: the gods of yesterday and today, two lions back to back, often indicating the directions East and West. It is curious to find the similar feline back-to-back symbolism in Central America and I suggest that the reason for this is not a direct influence of Egypt on Mexico, or Mexico on Egypt, but rather ...
303. The Legends of the Jews: Volume II - Joseph [Books]
... such uncleanness. He feared, moreover, that his descendants might say, "Were Egypt not a holy land, our father Jacob had never permitted himself to be buried there," and they might encourage themselves with this argument to make choice of Egypt as a permanent dwelling- place. Also, if his grave were there, the Egyptians might resort to it when the ten plagues came upon them, and if he were induced to pray for them to God, he would be advocating the cause of the Lord's enemies. If, on the other hand, he did not intercede for them, the Name of God would be profaned among the heathen, who would say ...
304. A Note on the "Land of Punt" [Journals] [Kronos]
... Summer 1975) Home | Issue Contents A Note on the "Land of Punt"Ralph E. Juergens and Lewis M. GreenbergG In his "Theses for the Reconstruction of Ancient History" (Scripta Academica Hierosolymitana, 1945) and in Ages in Chaos (1952), Velikovsky identifies the "land of Punt, ' mentioned in numerous Egyptian texts,(1 ) as Phoenicia-Palestine.(2 ) This, like so many other ideas he has put forward, has been essentially ignored by professional Egyptologists, who continue to disseminate the long-held view that Punt must have been located on the African or Arabian littorals (e .g ., Somaliland) of the Red Sea or ...
305. Possible repercussions of 'The Bible Unearthed' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and Lower Bronze Ages. Orthodox chronologists and historians blindly accept the authenticity of the Biblical historiography, as the Shishak = Shoshenq identification is a major plank in the conventional framework. In some ways this is remarkable, as no doubts have been raised, as far as I know, in spite of the fact that this identification required inflating several Egyptian genealogies by a couple of generations or so. JACF:8 has an article by Carl Jansen-Winkeln, Dating the Beginnings of the 22nd Dynasty' (download available from David Rohl's ISIS website). He makes a good case on linguistic and written grounds for maintaining the Shishak = Shoshenq synchronism. It is in many ways an attractive connection ...
306. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The Glasgow chronologists should also pay more attention to strategic questions. How can their attacking Velikovsky help bring Velikovsky the attention they themselves say he deserves? Peter James replies: Professor Rose is correct in assuming that the proponents of the "Glasgow Chronology" accept the ideas put forward in Ages in Chaos, as a working model for Biblical/Egyptian synchronisms between c. 1450 and 820 BC that is worthy of further investigation. The evidence in support of these proposals is impressive, as it is for Velikovsky's general thesis regarding the "Dark Ages" of the ancient Near East. However, certain basic problems must be tackled before we will really know how well Velikovsky's scheme compares to ...
307. What's Opera Doc? [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... 2000:1 (May 2000) Home | Issue Contents What's Opera Doc?Glass discusses opera at MFA Philip Glass, lecturing at the Museum of Fine Arts, December 4. A well-filled auditorium at the Museum of Fine Arts last Wednesday heard composer Philip Glass comment on his operas, Akhnaten in particular. The theme of the latter being Egyptian, it was left to the Museum's curator for Egyptian art to introduce Glass- as the main composer since Verdi to gather inspiration around the Nile. The evening did not quite come up to expectations. Contact with Akhnaten's actual performance consisted of some ten slides and no more than a few minutes of taped music, and Glass's high-speed oral ...
308. The Pyramids: an enigma solved [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1991 No 2 (Jan 1992) Home | Issue Contents REVIEWS The Pyramids: an enigma solved by Joseph Davidovits and Margie Morris (New York: Hippocrene Books, Inc., 1988) The question of how the pyramids and other monumental Egyptian works were constructed has long been the subject of speculation which has been fuelled by many problems. Given the hardness of the stone and the lack of iron or bronze in the Egyptian Old Kingdom, how were the massive blocks (and statues and coffins) cut with such precision and with no visible tool marks? How were such massive blocks transported and raised, especially in only a few decades ...
309. Were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Kingdom. He places Abraham in the middle of the First Dynasty. He then positions Joseph in the Third Dynasty and early Fourth Dynasty. Finally, he theorizes that Moses should be placed at the end of the Sixth Dynasty. Abraham One of the supports Fry uses to place Abraham in the First Dynasty is that Josephus claims Abraham taught the Egyptians mathematics and astronomy. That would necessitate Abraham's entry into the Egyptian Kingdom prior to the building of the pyramids. A second reason is that the Bible states that Hebron was built seven years before Tanis (Zoan). The Book of Jubilees states that Abraham lived during the time of Hebron's construction, and further Egyptian history mentions Tanis/ ...
310. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... Velikovsky was a medical doctor (with a specialty in psychoanalysis) who also read very widely in the natural sciences, history, and law. In the spring of 1940, while studying the biblical account of the Exodus, he became convinced that some natural upheaval had occurred at the time of Moses and that it should have been noted by Egyptian authors as well as in the texts, myths, epics, and folklore of other ancient peoples. So, over the next few years he searched the records of one ancient nation after another locating what he thought to be references to the same catastrophic events described in the Bible. (5 ) The results of Velikovsky's research were published ...
