91. The Oedipus Legend and the Amarna Period [Journals] [Kronos]
... which may have been a later addition,(2 ) there is no reason to deny the possibility that the story originated among the Ionians of Asia Minor, and for some unknown reason was transferred later to Boeotian Thebes. To account for the appearance of the Sphinx, which is an integral part of the story, an origin in some Egyptian myth has been postulated for it at least three times.(3 ) The novelty of Velikovsky's idea lies in his suggestion that: A) the story of the death of the Sphinx originated in an historical event, namely, the destruction of a conspicuous sphinx-statue, and B) the prototype of Oedipus was an individual Egyptian king. ...
92. Limitations of Astronomical Dating Methods* [Journals] [Kronos]
... difficulty here is not so much a matter of knowing whether a given record refers to one or the other as in knowing for sure whether a given record refers to an eclipse at all for some of these early inscriptions are vague indeed. As an example of such, we take the inscription from the time of Takelot II of the XXIInd Egyptian Dynasty which reads: (2 ) "When now had arrived the 15th year, the month Mesorii, the 25th day, under the reign of his father . . . the heaven could not be distinguished, the moon was eclipsed (literally was horrible), for a sign of the (coming) events in this land; ...
93. Persians And Greeks Invade Egypt. Part I Ch.2 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... many peoples under the leadership of a nation whose name is read Pereset, and a fleet for the invasion of Egypt. In accordance with the timetable of conventional chronology the period was shortly after -1200, several years after Ramses III mounted the throne, and in compliance with this timetable it is accepted that Pereset stands for Philistines. In the Egyptian script there is no letter L and the letter R may be pronounced also as L. Yet in almost all cases where the letter appears it is usual to pronounce it R, and thus we read Ramses, not Lamses. Aside from the presumed mention of the Philistines in the war annals of Ramses III, the Old Testament is ...
94. The Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia"" [Journals] [Kronos]
... Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia"- as proclaimed by Immanuel Velikovsky- In the Light of New Archaeological Discoveries Eva Danelius Preface Over twenty years have passed since Immanuel Velikovsky published his most provocative book, Ages in Chaos I, in which he suggested that the accepted reconstruction of Egyptian history seemed to be based on a wrong conception of chronology and that this chronology should be revised, (1 ) Velikovsky not only challenged the so-called "Sothic" theory- others had done this before him- but suggested a substitute which would shorten the history of the so-called Egyptian New Empire down to the conquest of Egypt by Alexander ...
95. A Note on the Term "Hyksos" [Journals] [Kronos]
... making the journal an unwitting accomplice to a baseless charge Let us examine the facts. | In Ages in Chaos ( p. 56), one will clearly see that Velikovsky's so-called-translation of the term Hyksos is actually a quote from the antiquarian Josephus (Against Apion, I, 82) who had based his remarks upon_those of the Egyptian historian Manetho. Moreover, if one additionally checks reference #7 on the very same page, Velikovsky openly and freely admits that "at present the preferred etymology sees in the name Hyk-sos the Egyptian equivalent for the rulers of foreign countries'."(4 ) At this juncture, any impartial judge would either throw Kadish's case out ...
96. Egyptian Monumental Evidence [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1992 No 1 (Aug 1992) Home | Issue Contents II: Egyptian Monumental Evidence Jesse E. Lasken takes up the challenge: In Workshop 1991:2 , Tony Rees challenged advocates of an extreme compression of the Egyptian chronology to square their chronologies with monumental evidence. I accept his challenge and will conclude with one to him. My published arguments concerning the Egyptian chronology are presented in greatest detail in Volume 17 of Discussions in Egyptology, where the class of argument made by Rees, although not his exact arguments, was addressed [1 ]. There I suggested that certain kings now associated with the so-called 18th and 19th Dynasties actually ...
97. A Revised Astronomical Chronology for Egypt [Articles]
... my head into the lion's mouth among Velikovskians because according to one chapter of the bible, as it were, Peoples of the Sea, we should hear no more about Sothic dating. However, I feel we should hear more about it. I had better explain very briefly what it is. It came out of the fact that the Egyptians, at any rate in later times, were known to have had a calendar of 365 days, and that's all, never a leap year. Whereas if we are talking about something like 200- 300 BC, everybody agrees that the natural, actual year, was 365 1/4 days. Therefore if you have an event ...
98. The Sea Peoples and the Philistines [Articles]
... also indulge in one of my own personal preoccupations- that of ancient chronology. As the Philistines were such an important cross-over point culturally, they provide an ideal stamping-ground for the addict of chronology and anachronisms, for example involving such questions as, When did the Philistines arrive in Palestine, when did this happen in terms of Biblical chronology, Egyptian chronology and so on? And another interesting thing about the Philistines is that they are the only certainly identifiable member of the group that ancient historians refer to as the "Sea Peoples". The whole business of Sea Peoples starts with the records of Ramesses III of Egypt, and as you will all know Velikovsky has provided a radically ...
99. Rethinking Hatshepsut [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home | Issue Contents Rethinking Hatshepsut by David K. Down Some 50 years ago Dr Siegfried Horn identified the Egyptian princess who drew Moses out of the water as Queen Hatshepsut of the XVIII dynasty. He did so by synchronising biblical chronology, I Kings 6:1 , which dated the Exodus to about 1445BC, with the then standard Egyptian chronology date for Hatshepsut from 1504 to 1482BC. The alignment was pleasing. Hatshepsut was Egypt's greatest queen, she built a beautiful temple at Deir el Bahri and she had no sons to succeed her. At the time it seemed a good idea but with advancing ...
100. Zetetic Scholar Nos. 3 & 4 April 1979 [Articles]
... Thus it is safe to say that by the end of the third decade of the century Velikovsky was well within the ranks of European science. In 1939 he moved to the United States and in 1940 he incidentally happened to make a discovery which changed the direction of his life. This involved finding a reasonable but surprising reinterpretation of a certain Egyptian document and thereby shedding a new light on the nature and date of the Biblical Exodus.1 This, in turn, led to other working hypotheses which he intensively investigated for some ten years. Finally, the fruits of his study came to the public attention in 1950 with the publication of Worlds in Collision. Two years later he ...
