11. A Critical Re-appraisal of the Book of Genesis, Part Two [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... the Book of Genesis, Part Two by Damien Mackey, Frank Calneggia and Paul Money Part Two: Moses as Compiler of the Book of Genesis In Part One we looked at the structure of the Book of Genesis, and found that the key to the structure of the first book of Scripture was to be found in the repetitious phrase, "These are the generations ('Toledoth') of..." Now, in Part Two, we shall be examining Genesis from the linguistic point of view. It will be shown that Egyptian exerted considerable influence on the formation and development of Hebrew as a literary language. The Graf-Wellhausen system has dominated the field of Biblical research for more than a century, as was explained in Part One. Consequently the entire Pentateuch is considered by scholars to be a late product- even those parts which deal with the "Egyptian Epoch" of Israelite history (i.e. from the Patriarch Joseph to the Exodus). Biblical critics today claim that those narratives which deal with the sojourn of Israel in Egypt were the work of authors ...

13. Saturn's Cosmos [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... , often portrayed as a revolving egg, a coil of rope, a belt or a shield enclosing the central sun. The sacred hymns and creation legends of ancient Egypt say that when the creator arose from the cosmic sea, a vast circle appeared around the god, forming the original Place-- "the place of the primeval time," or "the Province of the Beginning." (1) This primeval dwelling was the "island of Hetep [Rest," (2) a steadfast, revolving enclosure. Egyptian texts of all periods offer vivid images of this enclosure on the waters-- called "the golden Pai-land," the "Island of Fire," "the divine emerging primeval island," or "the island emerging in Nun [the cosmic waters." (3) Diverse sources agree that the island of creation stood at the cosmic centre and that it was the residence of the creator himself, the central sun. Thus, while Osiris is the "motionless heart" in the Island of Fire, Atum, ...
14. The Ship of Heaven [Aeon Journal $]
... that in the beginning there was only the sea on which the creator Tiki floated in a canoe. (12) The Hawaiian god Tanaroa sailed above in a "flying canoe," much like the great shaman of the Yenisei Ostiaks, who "rows his boat in heaven." (13) So also did the legendary Hiawatha navigate "a white canoe which moved without human aid." (14) In ancient Egypt the ship is an extremely popular theme in all local traditions. It was the hope of every pious Egyptian, on their death, to be crowned like the sun god, to enter the celestial city and to alight "upon the forehead of Ra in the bows of his boat which is in heaven," (15) or to "see the Sektet boat of the sacred Sahu passing forth over the sky." (16) O come and acclaim ye Ra, the lord of heaven, the Prince (Life, Health, Strength!), the Creator of the gods, and adore ye him in his beautiful ...
15. Did Thutmose III Despoil the Temple in Jerusalem? [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Review Vol II No 3 (1977/78) "From Exodus to Akhnaton" Home¦ Issue Contents Did Thutmose III Despoil the Temple in Jerusalem? A Critical Commentary to Chapter IV of "Ages in Chaos" Eva Danelius Dr Danelius (Dr Rerum Politicarum, University of Tübingen) has lived in Israel for many years and attended courses on Egyptian and Semitic languages and on Biblical Hebrew at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and the University of Tel Aviv. She has published articles in numerous journals, including JEA, JNES, Beth Mikra and KRONOS. This paper is based on one submitted to the Anthology of essays presented to Dr Velikovsky by the Center for Velikovskian and Interdisciplinary Studies, Glassboro, N.J., on December 5th, 1975 and edited by Robert H. Hewsen, Professor of History at Glassboro State College. The subheadings were added by the editor, who wishes to express his thanks to Malcolm Lowery for the valuable assistance he gave in the preparation of the manuscript. Velikovsky claims that Shishak, who looted Solomon's Temple in the ...
16. Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) 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 the centuries, the religious knowledge became encoded into the Pyramid Texts and numerous other myths and legends. But after several thousands years the original meaning of these myths was lost. It became possible for Alford to recapture the ancient wisdom, as a result of the painstaking work of Egyptologists during the past two centuries, and the recent pioneering work of astronomer ...
17. The Oedipus Legend and the Amarna Period [Kronos $]
... origin in some historical events of the Mycenaean Age. Since the only episode of the Oedipus story that can be localized with certainty in continental Greece is the slaying of Laios,(1) 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.(4) The question, therefore, is whether there existed an Egyptian king of sufficient stature to be remembered after centuries, whose fate was well known in Asia Minor, and in whose ...
18. The Timna Test [Aeon Journal $]
... Biblical history had been found wanting to an extraordinary degree. They knew from myriad secondary evidences that the Negev and Arabah had been densely populated and mined in the first half of the first millennium (-999 /-500). They knew that Assyrian influences on pottery provided a vital chronological cross-check and that they could not be mistaken in these conclusions. But Beno Rothenberg and Yohanan Aharoni also knew! They knew that, in this debate, they had a chronological arbiter and, with it, the advantage and the last word. Discovery of an Egyptian temple in the Arabah in 1969 conclusively demonstrated that the pottery which Glueck and Albright had assigned to Iron Age II and III (-999 /-500) bore a distinctive relationship to the Egyptian temple whose last official tenants were from Egypt's Dynasty XX. The same pottery was sequentially earlier and was therefore to be assigned to the pre-Ramesside horizon. They knew then that Glueck and Albright were wrong by many centuries and that there was, accordingly, little Israelite involvement in the Negev and Arabah copper mining industry. And were it not for Velikovsky's revised ...
19. Astronomy and Chronology [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 2: (Spring-Summer 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered IV" Home¦ Issue Contents Astronomy and Chronology Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1973 by Immanuel Velikovsky The sources of error in the conventional chronology This paper, first set in type in the early 1950's, will appear as a supplement to Peoples of the Sea. 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, lawgiving and building activity, wars and peace treaties of empires and kingdoms, are allocated to centuries according to the rule of Egyptian chronology. When a document is unearthed which records the relations of some king with a pharaoh of a certain dynasty, the time of the king ...
20. The Cosmic Mountain [The Saturn Myth] [Books]
... kingdom from the mountaintop, where stood the original paradise with its four life-bearing streams. Egypt According to the long-standing belief of Egyptologists, the sun-god rises over the eastern horizon each morning and sinks below the western horizon each evening. In widely accepted translations of the texts, one repeatedly finds such wording as "horizon from which Re goes forth," (1) "Thou living Soul who comest forth from the hori zon," (2) or "Re riseth in his horizon." (3) But if the Egyptian light god truly rises from the horizon then surely it is not Saturn, the steadfast polar sun. A closer look at the terminology is needed. As I have already observed, the words which the translators render as "rise" (pert, uben, un) mean literally "to appear," "to shine," "to send forth light," etc. The conventional choice of the word "rise" follows from the belief that the hymns describe the solar orb emerging in the east. But what ...
