131. The Military Strategy of Sheshonq/Shishak in Palestine [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Berrien Springs, Michigan, until 1986. Since then he has been Biblical Research Associate at the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists in Washington. In a recent issue of C & C Review [1 ] John Bimson has provided a comprehensive overview of the problems associated with the identification of the pharaoh Shishak of I Kings 14:25 with the Egyptian ruler Sheshonq I. His interesting review of the literature dealing with this problem takes it all the way back to its root with the decipherer of hieroglyphs himself, Jean Francois Champollion. During the course of his epigraphic survey of Egypt in 1828-9, Champollion copied and studied the toponym list of Sheshonq on the Bubastite portal of the Karnak Temple ...
132. The Location of Punt/Ophir Part II [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... under the incense tree belongs to the top register. There are also an Arabian baboon and some dogs. The scene of the first meeting between the two parties begins on the bottom row of the relief pictures (HZ:23, Tafel 1): Coming from the right we see first Nehesi with his commander's staff, behind him an Egyptian officer and eight soldiers, heavily armed with spears and oblong shields. Before Nehesi on the ground lies a heap of different goods, brought by the Egyptians; among them are necklaces, axes, daggers, rings, bread, beer and wine, and Egyptian fruit. After some space filled with explanatory text there comes the chief of ...
133. Trails Over the Sea. Part 2 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... in the el-Amarna of Akhnaton, Mycenaean ware has been found in large quantities; and in Mycenae and the neighboring Tiryns objects from the Egypt of Amenhotep III have been uncovered.1 A scarab, or signet, bearing the name of Queen Tiy was found in Mycenae; and it has been observed that it is from this time on that Egyptian objects appear in continental Greece. Even exact reproductions of decorations on the ceilings of the tombs in Egyptian Thebes were discovered in the tombs of Mycenae and Orchomenos.2 As for Thebes in Boeotia, "there is no historical record of any traffic between [it] and Egypt. Indeed there is no place in which it would be ...
134. Assyria, Karduniash, Babylon: A Rational chronology [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . To work out the revision of the chronology of Egypt, Israel, Hatti, and Greece withoutaligning Assyria, Karduniash, and Babylon as well, is not achieving substantial conclusions that can withstand scholarly criticism With relative ease the chronologies of Egypt, Hatti, and Greece fall in place with approximately 500-year adjustments made to the chronological scheme; The Egyptian New Kingdom is redated from 1500-1250 B.C .. to 1000-750 B.C . The Hatti imperial period from 1400-1250 to 900-750, and the Mycenean period from 14-13th to 9-8th century. All the realigning can only be considered substantive when the relative responses to the Assyro-Babylonian dating system have been established. To turn a hypothesis into a ...
135. The Foundations Of Egyptian Chronology. Supplement: Astronomy And Chronology Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... From "Peoples of the Sea" © 1977 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Foundations Of Egyptian Chronology A Mighty Tree THE STUDENT of ancient history, especially the history of the second millennium before the present era, is accustomed to relate the chronology of the entire ancient East to Egyptian reckoning. "A system of relative chronology can be established by excavation in any country that has been long inhabited, but it is left hanging in the air until linked up with Egypt, whether directly or indirectly through a third region."[1 ] Kings and dynasties, law-giving and building activity, wars and peace treaties of empires and kingdoms are allocated to centuries ...
... Chapter XXVI The Sothic Cycle and the Use Made of it ALTHOUGH it is necessary to enter somewhat into the domain of chronology to really understand the astronomical observations on which, the Egyptian year depended and the uses made of the year, I shall limit myself to the more purely astronomical part. To go over the already vast literature is far from my intention, nor is it necessary to attempt to settle all the differences of opinion which exists; and which are so ably referred to by Krall in his masterly analysis [1 ] to which I own myself deeply indebted. The tremendously involved state of the problem may be gathered from the fact that the authorities are not yet ...
137. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [SIS Review]
... remembered as the beginning', Earth was engulfed in darkness. Time and again we are told that in the beginning' there was no Sun, no Moon, no stars. The planetary god of beginnings, we are told ad nauseam, ruled alone and in darkness. Whether we turn to the pages of Genesis or to the ancient Egyptian myths of creation, the message is always the same; whether we seek the first appearance of the Hebrew Elohim or the Egyptian Atum, it is always stated that the god existed alone in darkness. It is the same in the ancient texts of India, not only among the Hindus but even among the lesser tribes: When this ...
138. The Dynasty Of Priests. Part 2 Ch.1 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Dynasty Of Priests IN PART II we shall endeavour to reconstruct the history of the dynasty that goes under the misnomer of Twenty-first. It is a period rich in documents, mostly legal or sacerdotal, rarely of any historical content, and consequently it is admitted that historically it is one of the most obscure periods in Egyptian history; many efforts have been made to establish order in this succession of princely priests and to find meaning in their political activities. "The Twenty-first Dynasty is, still, a particularly obscure period of Egyptian history," writes J. Cerny in the new edtion of the Cambridge Ancient History. [l ] And no wonder: ...
139. On the Nature of Cometary Symbolism [Journals] [Kronos]
... ? Would not the comet then loom as a mythical image of vast influence, entirely out of proportion to historical "reality"? We ask this rhetorical question only to stress our approach's potential conflict with conventional interpretations and their unspoken assumptions about "the way the ancient sky looked". To the above-cited comet symbols one can compare the following Egyptian hieroglyphs: "beard" "lock of hair" or "sidelock" "feather" or "plume" "torch" of "flame" "rope", "tie", or "knot" "serpent" To state the obvious, Egyptologists do not think of comets when they see these images, so we are ...
140. The Origin of Velikovsky's Comet [Journals] [Kronos]
... parcel of a unified cosmology ruling the collective consciousness of man. This cosmology, however, has yet to be recognized by conventional schools. 4. The Great Mother One of the most prominent features of ancient religion is the universal devotion to a goddess called the "Great Mother". Perhaps the best-known early instances of the goddess are the Egyptian Isis and the Mesopotamian Inanna-Ishtar. Significantly, chroniclers identify both goddesses with the planet Venus.(3 ) Moreover, it would be difficult to find an ancient civilization which fails to support this role of Venus as Great Mother. There appears to be an impressive continuity of this identity from the infancy of civilization through the Classical Age of ...
