211. Chapter 15 Dark Ages Based on Dark Scholarship [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , specially on the plateau, seem to be quite irretrievably lost for us."19 In The Dark Age of Greece, which Whelton considers one of Velikovsky's best historical works, there is also a great deal of evidence that contradicts the conventional chronology. How did this archaeological-historical gap come into being? It was created by the dominance of Egyptian history which demanded that the civilizations around Egypt correlate with it. Since it was taken as indisputable fact that Egyptian history was extremely long, materials found elsewhere, especially pottery, could be cross-reference-dated with Egypt. As Whelton, citing Velikovsky, delineates: "The confusion and discord created by the hegemony of Egypt was the source of bitter ...
212. First Dynasty - pre-Flood or post-Flood [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... yet we have Claude Schaeffer's archaeological work (quoted by Velikovsky at length in Earth in Upheaval) that tells us that the Old Kingdom, Mesopotamian and other civilizations were all suddenly wiped out at the same time by an all-encompassing catastrophe(the Flood?) around 2300 BC. My first question for the forum is where do we start dynastic Egyptian history? Is the first dynasty pre-Flood or post-Flood? Next I'd like to know if anyone knows if there is a significant decrease in the number of Old Kingdom artifacts compared to those of the Middle Kingdom? Such a significant decrease would lend support to a pre-Flood dating while only a small decrease would lend support to a post-Flood dating. ...
213. Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt by Lynn E. Rose [Journals] [Aeon]
... it is, Lynn Rose, professor emeritus of philosophy at SUNY Buffalo, goes to great pains to make his points absolutely and unequivocally clear, often reiterating the particulars for emphasis- without that nagging feeling of redundancy many other authors who tend to repeat themselves give the readership. We are given a description of the 365-day calendar of the ancient Egyptians, and how it relates to the Julian calendar of Imperial Rome and the Alexandrian calendar of Roman-occupied Egypt, as well as to the later 16th century Gregorian calendar reform. Merely mentioned in passing by Rose- and for the benefit of this reviewer's readership- is the name of Joseph Justus Scaliger (1540-1609), whose own calendar reform ...
214. Mother Goddess and Warrior-Hero (Part One) [Journals] [Aeon]
... changes that could not be produced in any physical scheme apart from the condition of polar alignment. With respect to Venus and Mars- the focus of this series- a whole array of motifs can be followed from this starting point, all suggesting the same event-sequences. The Newborn Forms of the Formless God Though I will be taking up the Egyptian creation legend in considerable detail in a future series, it will be helpful to note here the central events apparent in all Egyptian versions. In these accounts one can trace the history of the polar configuration backwards to its earliest remembered phase, when a formless god stood alone in the "waters" of the sky, distinguished only by ...
215. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 1-3 (1982) "The 1978 Glasgow Conference Proceedings" Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology Dr Euan Mackie I don't regard myself as an expert in ancient Egypt or the ancient Near East - or even, really, in radiocarbon dating, but as a practising archaeologist I have to use radiocarbon dates in this remote northern region far from the centres of early civilisation in the Mediterranean and the Near East, and therefore, like everyone who works up here, beyond the range of direct links with Egypt and Greece, I have to be familiar with C14, its limitations and its benefits [1 ]. It occurred to ...
216. Night of the Gods: The Stone [Books]
... is attributed to Hwang-Ti 26 the fabulous Emperor whom I maintain to have been a universe-god. He used the invention against the rebel rival power Ch'jh Yeo, a sort of Satan or Typhon, and also the chief of 81 beast-bodied iron-browed man-voiced dust-eating brothers. Note the good god using the magnet against the evil iron, which is quite an Egyptian conception. He pursued his enemy and seized him. This is of course all celestial myth; and there is a further curious parallel to the Egyptian allegory in the legend that the corpse of Ch'ih Yeo was cut up (like that of Osiris) and its limbs sent to various places.27 The invention of the cars was also ...
217. "The Basest Of The Kingdoms". Part 2 Ch.2 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... Yet Bedel rejected the plea that he should make restitution for the loss and pointed to the fact that the thief was not a resident of his city but a sailor from the ship. Wenamon continued his travel towards Byblos. The misfortunes that befell him on the way, the intolerance and disdain he encountered in the Syrian cities because of his Egyptian origin and citizenship, the lack of protection when on the high seas, are vividly described in the diary of his journey.[1 ] At that time, travelling in Syria was perilous. Nehemiah (2 :7 ) and Ezra (8 :22) both mention the insecurity of the highways, even for one on the ...
218. The Israelite Exodus and the Volcanic Eruption of Thera [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... according to his chronology). [6 ] This theory is primarily based on his understanding of the Speos Artemidos inscription carved on the wall of a temple in Middle Egypt. The text of this inscription is damaged and difficult to translate. Nevertheless, it seems to refer to Hatshepsut's anger at the actions of a group of Asiatics (the Egyptian word for people from Syria-Palestine) who lived in the delta region of Egypt and it indicates that she restored several temples which had been damaged or in ruins. Immanuel Velikovsky was the first to interpret portions of this text with reference to the events of the time of exodus. He believed the destruction of temples mentioned had been due to ...
219. It's Time to Get Serious About Manetho [Journals] [SIS Review]
... throughout the world, particularly in and around the Middle East. Retired through ill health, he is a research consultant for a leading Australian genealogical service organisation. He has researched a wide range of subjects related to the history of Egypt and is currently fine-tuninga 1500 page study on the chonology of Egypt and contemporary civilisations. Summary The kinglists of Egyptian priest Manetho in c. -260 represent the foundation plank of all reconstruction of that nation's history. Are the chronological problems identified today the result of errors on his part or have modern scholars misread his work from the start? Setting the Stage On about July 18th 1998, the world was entitled to celebrate the bicentenary of Egyptology au Napoleon ...
220. Senmut and Phaeton [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . The "astronomically objectionable" Senmut ceiling is here inspected: with a new identification of some of the constellations, it is found to give strong support for a past inversion of the earth's axis. It is interpreted, moreover, as pointing to a celestial spectacle of such religious significance that it was mythologised and enshrined in permanent record on Egyptian monuments. Students of Dr Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision will be aware that he cites the astronomical ceiling decoration of the tomb of Senmut, architect to Queen Hatshepshut of Egypt, as part of the evidence that the world was at some time "upside down" by comparison with its present day orientation (1 ). His comments appear to ...
