91. Hatshepsut and the Queen of Sheba: A Critique of Velikovsky's Identification and an Alternative View [SIS C&C Review $]
... bears the remains of six horizontal registers. The lowest is virtually intact; omissions are the result of fragments of stone having broken away from the joins between individual slabs, producing small intervening gaps. This register shows the reception of the Egyptians by the Puntite chief Perehu, who is followed by his wife and family. Behind them are the trees, cattle and houses of Punt. Below this scene is a line of water, inhabited by various forms of marine life, showing that the meeting took place on the shore where the Egyptian ships had landed. The register above, less well preserved, shows the presentation of the produce of Punt to Hatshepsut's messenger. This event is presided over by Perehu and his wife, and although the line of water is not repeated here, the inscription unambiguously sets the scene "in the myrrh-terraces of Punt on the side of the sea" [21. The registers above show rows of men carrying trees, rooted in baskets and slung on poles. Another line of water beneath these registers places the scene by the sea ...
92. A Chronology for the Middle Kingdom and Israel's Egyptian Bondage - II. Israel in Egypt [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol IV No 1 (Autumn 1979) Home¦ Issue Contents A Chronology for the Middle Kingdom and Israel's Egyptian Bondage- II. Israel in Egypt John Bimson Copyright (C) 1979 J. J. Bimson Dr. Bimson, a regular contributor to this journal, specialised in Hebrew Chronology at Sheffield University; his doctorate thesis was recently published under the title, "Redating the Exodus and Conquest". He is currently continuing his researches into the stratigraphy and chronology of Palestine. The second and concluding part of this paper examines biblilical and Egyptian evidence in support of Velikovsky's synchronism of the Exodus and the Hyksos invasion. IN PART I OF THIS ESSAY [1, I presented arguments for dating Joseph and the Hebrew migration into Egypt in the reign of Sesostris III, 5th ruler of the XIIth Dynasty. I also argued that the Hebrew tribes remained in Egypt for about 400 years. Combining this with a date of c. 1450 BC for the Exodus, a chronology was obtained for the XIIth Dynasty which places its end at c ...
93. 'KA', AND EGYPTIAN MAGIC [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: email@example.com TABLE OF CONTENTS KA by H. Crosthwaite CHAPTER THIRTEEN 'KA', AND EGYPTIAN MAGIC HOMER and the Greek tragic poets often use periphrasis when addressing people. Achilles might be addressed as "strength of Achilles." The words sthenos, is, menos, bia, each meaning force of some kind, are used, also kara and kephale, head. The Latin word vis, strength or quantity, suggests that a digamma was originally present in the Greek word is, and that it was vis. Hesiod, Theogony 332, even refers to Herakles as "is bias Herakleies", and Homer refers to Telemachus as "hiere is Telemachoio", the holy power of Telemachus. Iphi, from is, means 'with might'; iphi anassein means to rule with might. Oidipou kara means simply Oedipus, but literally it is 'head of Oedipus'. Phile kephale, dear head, is used in greeting [1, like the Latin carum caput. Vis, Latin for strength, is personified as Juno by the ...
94. The Great Father [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... the evolutionists associate the "first stages" of religion. 1. Atum, the solitary god of beginnings. There are grounds for speaking of an archaic monotheism, astral in nature, existing long before the idea of God received its spiritual and philosophical elevation in Hebrew and Greek thought. To the ancients themselves the entire question was simply a matter of concrete history: the present world is a fragmented copy of an earlier age, in which the supreme light god stood alone in a primeval sea, occupying the cosmic centre. Ancient Egyptian texts repeatedly invoke a singular figure worshipped as the greatest and highest light of the primeval age. One of his many names was Atum, a god "born in the Abyss before the sky existed, before the earth existed." (2) These are the words of the Pyramid Texts, perhaps the world's oldest religious hymns, but the texts of all periods look back to the same primordial time when Atum shone forth alone. "I came into being of myself in the midst of the Primeval Waters," states ...
95. Theses for the Reconstruction of Ancient History [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... THESES FOR THE RECONSTRUCTION OF ANCIENT HISTORY FROM THE END OF THE MIDDLE KINGDOM IN EGYPT TO THE ADVENT OF ALEXANDER THE GREAT BY IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY 1945 INTRODUCTION The written history of the ancient world is composed without correct synchronization of the histories of different peoples of antiquity: a discrepancy of about six hundred years exists between the Hebrew and Egyptian histories as they are conventionally written; since the histories of other peoples are synchronized both with the Hebrew and the Egyptian past, they are completely distorted. The ground plan for a redesigning of ancient history was ready in its main features in the spring 1940. During the years 1940-1944, I wrote and completed a Reconstruction of ancient history from the end of the Middle Kingdom in Egypt to the advent of Alexander the Great. Due to war conditions and their interference with the printing of extensive scientific works, the publication of ? Ages in Chaos ? had to be postponed. This short paper is intended to bring together in concise form most of the innovations of my work; I present them in the form of theses; the ...
96. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [The Velikovskian $]
... this planet. The purpose of this treatise is to demonstrate, by means of an integrated, international, ancient chronology, that Immanuel Velikovsky's date for this cataclysm should be changed. For many years, those who have been expounding on various aspects of Dr. Velikovsky's ideas have been concentrating primarily on the process of historical revision; but to date, no one has come up with a year-by-year, synchronized, historical timetable. So there continues to be a considerable variety of opinion concerning the specific sequence of events between the end of Egyptian Dynasty 18 and the beginning of Dynasty 19 (or 26). The reason for this disagreement stems directly from the inaccuracy of the cataclysm date of 747, not from any failings in the historical reconstruction. It is absolutely mathematically impossible to reconstruct the history of the area if a date of 747 is adhered to; and if the prophets predicted eclipses when there seemed to have been none, it was not that their predictions were incorrect but that they, as the predictors, are slightly out of sync in history and, ...
97. Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites [SIS C&C Review $]
... " Home¦ Issue Contents Saturday afternoon CHAIRMAN: HAROLD TRESMAN Chronological Problems in the Archaeology of the Hittites Peter J. James A revised chronology of the sort proposed by Immanuel Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos, if applied to the history of ancient Anatolia and Syria, might rescue the archaeology of those regions from a series of extreme difficulties which are apparently quite insoluble within the framework of the accepted chronology. Introduction The Hittites were an Anatolian people whose existence, long suspected from the occasional mentions of their name in the Bible and in Assyrian and Egyptian records, received archaeological confirmation in a remarkable series of discoveries made in the late 19th and early 20th centuries [1. Although travellers to Anatolia and Syria in the early 19th century visited and recorded with interest many of the rock-sculptures and monuments still visible, their nature was not correctly understood and they were mistakenly attributed to the Medes, the Persians, the Assyrians, and even to the Egyptians. Then in 1876 A. H. Sayce, in a paper read to the Society of Biblical Archaeology, proposed to ascribe to ...
98. A Survey of Archaeological Evidence for a Revised Chronology [SIS C&C Review $]
... lectured in Old Testament Studies at Trinity College, Bristol. He has recently published his first novel (The Prophet Motive, Minerva Press, 2000). Summary A number of archaeological problems are surveyed, from the Middle Bronze Age to the end of the Iron Age, all of which point to the need for a revised chronology. In particular, problems occurring throughout the Iron Age in Palestine provide consistent evidence for lower dates than those currently in use. The changes needed to resolve these difficulties cannot be achieved without shortening the accepted Egyptian chronology. Where the evidence permits a comparison of the revisions offered in Centuries of Darkness and A Test of Time, the former emerges as the stronger candidate. Introduction: setting limits to the survey As there is currently a whole supermarket shelf of revised chronologies on offer, it would be impossible in the context of this short paper to examine each one in turn from the perspective of the archaeological evidence. I shall therefore confine my discussion to two revisions only: those of Peter James et al in Centuries of Darkness and of ...
99. Another Velikovsky Affray: the Histories [SIS C&C Review $]
... overall work. There remain significant modifications to be made within Ages in Chaos (Dyn XVIII) but now is not the time to air these. It is time, however, to bring Velikovsky's more challenging projections back to the drawing board and confirm, if possible, the datums of his three original discoveries for Dyns. XVIII, XIX and XX. The town which the king plundered in Year 8---- My critique of A Test of Time included a rebuttal of Rohl's notion that Ramesses II was Shishak, the Egyptian Pharaoh who plundered the Temple of Jerusalem in the 5th year of Solomon's son, Rehoboam. In Rohl's photograph of a Dyn XIX inscription in the Ramesseum at Thebes, Ramesses II is depicted taking the surrender of Shalem in his 8th year. Reasonably identifying Shalem as Jerusalem, Rohl submitted the inscription as direct evidence for Ramesses as Shishak, rather than convention's candidate, Shoshenq of Dynasty XXII. By plotting Shoshenq's campaign records he was able to show that rather than opposing Judah, the entire Dyn XXII military campaign was, paradoxically, ...
100. Chronological Implications of a Proper Identification of the Labyrinth: Part II [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1993 No 1 (Aug 1993) Home¦ Issue Contents Chronological Implications of a Proper Identification of the Labyrinth: Part II by Jesse E. Lasken In Part I (C&C Workshop 1992:2), I equated the Step Pyramid complex with the Egyptian Labyrinth described by Herodotus. This equation was argued independently of chronological considerations, but it has important chronological implications. As I have elsewhere discussed in some detail, conventional chronologists assume that the epitomes of Manetho by Africanus and Eusebius provide a valid framework of Egyptian chronology consisting of some thirty dynasties- an assumption formulated a few years after Champollion announced the decipherment of hieroglyphics in 1828 [1. The early Egyptologists also assumed that all or most of these dynasties were consecutive even though the epitomes do not say this and the Armenian version of Eusebius suggests otherwise. Later Egyptologists have tended to overlap more of the dynasties than did many of the early Egyptologists but they have not abandoned the basic framework allegedly provided by Manetho. The 'new chronology' appears to rely on ...
