11. The Night of the Gods Vol II [Books]
... of eleven different currencies, having no recognised relation to each other, were in circulation to the great profit of the money-changers, who fixed a rate of exchange almost daily to the bewilderment and impoverishment of the ordinary trader. Mr. O'Neill succeeded in establishing a regular currency #f three factors-the pound sterling, the Turkish beshalik' and the Egyptian piastre-which were accepted thenceforward by the tax-gatherer, the merchant, and the general public as the equivalent of the pounds, shillings, and pence of Great Britain. While engaged in this and other administrative work of considerable difficulty, he found time to observe and note the many remains of the ancient religious beliefs of the island which were continually ...
... Ages in Chaos Volume I: From the Exodus to King Akhnaton Immanuel Velikovsky CHAPTER ONE In Search of a Link Between Egyptian and Israelite Histories Immanuel Velikovsky Two Lands and Their Past Palestine, one of the westernmost lands in Asia, and Egypt, in the northeast corner of Africa, are neighboring countries. The history of Egypt reaches back to hoary antiquity; the Jewish people has a history that claims to describe the very beginning of this nation's march through the centuries. At the dawn of their history the Israelites, an unsettled tribe, came from Canaan to Egypt. There they grew to be a people; there. also, they bore the yoke of bondage. Their ...
13. The Crescent II [Books]
... moon that mythologists give almost no attention to specific imagery suggesting a radically different interpretation. Having observed the "unorthodox" role of the crescent-horn, it is appropriate to note first that ancient symbolism always equates the great god's ship with the bull or cow of heaven. Prehistoric drawings from Egypt continually relate the ship to a horned creature and later Egyptian art continued the theme. (13) 92. The Mesopotamian great gods sail in the horned ship. The same connection occurs in many Scandinavian rock drawings. A rock picture from the Nubian desert south of Kerma shows the ship so placed on the back of a bull that the boat and the galloping animal are one. (14 ...
14. A Critical Re-appraisal of the Book of Genesis, Part Two [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 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" ...

16. Calendars [Journals] [Kronos]
... by skipping a scheduled leap year several thousand years from now.) The Julian calendar, with its greater simplicity, is often used in preference to the Gregorian calendar, especially where astronomical matters or ancient history are concerned. When Rome conquered Egypt, the Romans had recently adopted a Julian year of 365 1/4 days. But the Egyptians still used a 365-day calendar, in which each of twelve schematic months had its own Egyptian name, and was 30 days long. (In earlier sources, the months within a given season were usually numbered rather than named.) Five epagomenal days were placed at the end of the year, after the twelve months. These five ...

Their antiquity alone is cause enough for wonder though older examples show them to be particularly grand structures in an already established tradition - one that continued generally throughout the Old Kingdom of Egypt. About eighty are known, but the sheer mass of the Gizeli group has added to ...

In this article, the author attempts to demonstrate that the hieroglyph symbol Akhet stands for "solar eclipse" and not "horizon". He also puts forth the idea that the ancient Egyptians believed that the solar eclipse was the heavenly abode of the Sun. The author goes on ...
