141. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... basis of his own research, came to the same conclusion: "The sky, instead of being dominated alternately by the Sun and the Moon, was constantly dominated by a single huge and luminous body, here called Aster." (17) David Talbott has also focused attention on this topic. As he had it stated: The Egyptians remembered the creator as the solitary Atum or Ra, whom we recognize as the planet Saturn. In the accounts of all periods, Ra is originally a solitary god. The ancient sun is he...who had no companions. (18) "I am Atum, when I was alone in Nun," the god ...
142. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... terms of giving a good match with the biblical record: - 1). Egypt entered a dark age (the First Intermediate Period) as might be expected following the loss of its Pharaoh and army, most of its crops and animals, and some of its other wealth. The disasters of the Ipuwer Papyrus [ 'Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage'], some of them paralleling the Exodus plagues, are normally put at this time (CAH I:2 , pp. 200-1) although Velikovsky and others have argued for a placement in the Second Intermediate Period. The Prophecy of Neferti' also tells of disasters between the Old and Middle Kingdoms (Gardiner 1961, p ...
143. Chapter 2 The Sphinx [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS 38 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 CHAPTER 2 THE SPHINX All ancient Near Eastern history is based solely on that of ancient Egypt. Velikovsky explained this long ago: "The student of ancient history . . . 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. ' [O .G .S . Crawford, Man and His Past (London 1921), p. 72] ...
144. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the pre-Deuteronomist compilation may represent a recent amalgam (reigns of David and/or Solomon) of the various tribes plus the indigenous traditions of the region. [6 ] In addition, the date of the pre-Deuteronomist editor might be gleaned from the actual format of the catalog of conquered cities listed in Joshua- distinctly similar to the format of Egyptian topographical lists. These were drawn up in honor of pharaoh, his campaigns, regions made to pay tribute, and cities conquered. [7 ] Logically we might suppose some degree of Egyptian influence on Israel at the time of the pre-Deuteronomist editor to warrant the inclusion, such as could have been exercised by Shishak, father-in-law of Solomon ...
145. The Great Father [Books]
... 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, ...
146. Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1990 No 1 (June 1990) Home | Issue Contents Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology by R. M. Porter It is the purpose of this article to recap on some of the proposed revisions and then to propose yet another which is mainly a synthesis of earlier ideas. The title of the article stems from a belief that if Solomon (and of course his son Rehoboam and their Egyptian contemporary Shishak) and the Exodus and Abraham can be correctly synchronised with the history of Egypt then everything else will fall into place. It is not the purpose of this article to prove anything but to propose a scheme ...
147. A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible - From Myth to History by David M. Rohl [Journals] [SIS Review]
... concerned with the Late Bronze and early Iron Ages and the transition between the two periods, Rohl covers the much longer period between the early Israelite monarchy and the Third Intermediate Period (TIP) in Egypt. Third, most of the data used by James and his colleagues are archaeological, whereas Rohl bases much of his reconstruction of biblical and Egyptian history on synchronisms derived from detailed comparisons of the Old Testament and Egyptian historical texts. Finally, Rohl argues in favour of a reduction of some 350 years both in Egyptian New Kingdom dates and in the transition from the Late Bronze to the early Iron Ages, rather than the 250 postulated by James and his colleagues. This book has ...
148. Ash [Journals] [Pensee]
... to decide between these two datings. I.V . November 7, 1953 DEAR DR. VELIKOVSKY: Thank you for your good letter of the 4th. I was glad to receive it and to hear that the radio-carbon dating of Dr. W. F. Libby of the University of Chicago confirms some of your own new dates in Egyptian and Near Eastern history before the Persian Period. I would be delighted to confirm your conclusions by sending to Dr. Libby some organic substance from an Egyptian object (such as an Egyptian mummy case) from the New Kingdom (18th to 20th dynasty) if I could find one in the Harvard Semitic Museum. Unfortunately we have nothing ...
149. Chronological Implications of a Proper Identification of the Labyrinth: Part II [Journals] [SIS 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 ...
150. The Enclosed Sun-Cross [Books]
... and fertility, with four rivers flowing "toward the four different points of the compass." (8 ) The tradition is repeated by many other nations. The Mandaeans of Iraq enumerate four great rivers flowing from the north. (9 ) Just as the Babylonians recalled "the land of the four rivers," (10) the Egyptians knew "Four Niles," flowing to the four quarters. (11) The home of the Greek goddess Calypso, in the "navel of the sea," possessed a central fountain sending forth "four streams, flowing each in opposite directions." (12) In the Scandinavian Edda, the world's waters originate in the ...
