71. The Shrine of Baal-Zephon [Journals] [Aeon]
... wilderness in order to pay homage to their tribal god would not, of itself, have been unusual. This form of ritual, known to us today as a pilgrimage, has its roots in deepest antiquity. Such religious expeditions to sacred places were practiced by various ancient races which included not only the Israelites (or Jews) but the Egyptians themselves. (7 ) The Pharaoh of Egypt would have been quite familiar with the rite and would not, under normal circumstances, have seen anything strange in Moses' request. Since the Israelites formed a foreign contingent in Egypt, and more so since they were actually held in bondage, Pharaoh's permission would have been required. There ...
72. The Opening of The Mouth Ritual - Part II [Journals] [Aeon]
... 1 The Opening of the Mouth ceremony at the tomb of Roy, 19th Dynasty. From the left- mourners, lector and Sem priests, sons and wife, Anubis priest, funeral stele, tomb entrance (protected by Eyes of Ra), burial mountain. Previously In Part I of this paper we learned some basic facts about the Egyptian (and Mesopotamian) Opening of the Mouth and Eyes ritual. [3 ] This ritual was the most important of all Egyptian rites because it, hopefully, ensured the deceased's cont-inued existence in the land of the gods. This Field of Reeds (the Greek Elysian Fields) was located in the northern heav-ens among the "unwearying stars ...
73. Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... ) Home | Issue Contents Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution http://www.eridu.co.uk Alford's theory is that a pre-dynastic race built the Great Pyramid and deposited at Giza certain scientific records which specifically included the catastrophic history of our solar system and the subsequent development of life on Earth. Alford presents evidence that the ancient Egyptian religion was an exploded planet cult', and suggests that they re-discovered this themselves in the legendary Hall of Records' at least 6,000 years ago. This profound knowledge - of catastrophism in the heavens and on Earth - was adopted by the emerging Dynastic elite as a means of legitimising their rule as divine' kings. Over ...
74. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 1 [Books]
... , is of yesterday only. I speak of the building of their cities, the inventions of their arts, and the description of their laws; and as for their care about the writing down of their histories, it is very near the last thing they set about. However, they acknowledge themselves so far, that they were the Egyptians, the Chaldeans, and the Phoenicians (for I will not now reckon ourselves among them) that have preserved the memorials of the most ancient and most lasting traditions of mankind; for almost all these nations inhabit such countries as are least subject to destruction from the world about them; and these also have taken especial care to have ...
75. From the End of the Eighteenth Dynasty to the Time of Ramses II [Journals] [Kronos]
... was he an ancestor of the Ramessides. He is supposed to have ruled over Egypt during the interregnum. It is not apparent why he was "chosen to be the king" and to administer Egypt. Nothing is known of his end. The transition of power from the Eighteenth to the Nineteenth Dynasty is regarded as an obscure period in Egyptian history. With the close of the el-Amarna period we have reached, according to our revised scheme, the latter part of the ninth century. The eighth century and the beginning of the seventh were the periods of the Libyan and, Ethiopian Dynasties in Egypt. The conventional scheme assigns the el-Amarna period to the latter part of the fifteenth ...
... Sea" © 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents Venus IF THE LENGTH of the year was accurately known in the second and third millennia, the deliberate neglect of a quarter of a day each year and the loss of twenty-five days in a century would have been a deliberate disregard of the degree of exactness attained by the Egyptian priests. Why should the Egyptians have perpetuated such an error through centuries and millennia if they recognized it? The scholar who asked this question (M . Knapp) [1 ] supposed that the Sothic period pertained to Venus rather than to Sinus. Sirius is the most brilliant star, Venus is a still more splendid planet. Venus ...
77. After 200 Years It's Time to Get Serious About Dynasty XVIII and Tuthmose III [Journals] [Aeon]
... cut ancient fabrics according to eighteenth and nineteenth century sociological patterns. Thus, for example, Tuthmose's military experiences were understood in the context of our wars. But then, one might ask, how much different can any war be regardless of its time-frame? We'll come to that below. Reflections Long settled on a rigid chronological frame for the Egyptian kingdoms as the essential backbone of all ancient history, the equanimity of mainstream historians was pricked in 1950 by the impertinent sting of Velikovsky who alleged that the highly touted Egyptian chronology was inflated by some six centuries. Several of Velikovsky's prime synchronisms pivot on his claim that the recovery phase of Dynasty XVIII paralleled much of the 120 years of ...

79. A Harbinger of the Exodus? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that are able to go forth to war in Israel' [Numbers 1:3 ]. Old and infirm men were probably excluded, so the total of adult males would be higher. Males under the age of twenty can only be guessed at, but demographic statistics suggest that they would number approximately as many again [4 ]. Egyptian limitations on male births did not apply to girls, so female Israelites would probably outnumber males: whence if Exodus 12:37 is taken literally, the Israelites would have totalled 2,000,000 to 2,500,000! In fact the 600,000' figure is a mistranslation. "The word translated (and ...
