231. Plagues and Comets [Books] [de Grazia books]
... infant Moses' survival and salvation in the bulrushes of the Nile, advances through Moses' encounter with the Burning Bush whence speaks Yahweh, ascends rapidly with the plagues of Egypt that follow his threats as Yahweh's messenger, and reaches a climax in the parting of the waters to let the Israelites escape and the closing of the waters upon the Egyptians. Thereafter the incredulous reader can only sigh as one after another lesser miracle occurs - water from tapping a rock with a wand, manna from heaven, tablets engraved by Yahweh, a little Ark with a bench on which Yahweh perches when he pleases, and a tent in which he dwells. Overall is the panorama of the people ...
... procedure as applied to the bristlecone pine and the refusal to allow independent unbiased analysis of some of the basic data. Sorensen concludes "that' at this time there are no compelling reasons to accept the bristlecone pine chronology as valid" So although the trend of the calibration curve is consistent with catastrophic theories, there is no reason to force Egyptian history to fit a chronology based on the bristlecone pine calibration. ASH The need to make carbon dating correspond to the accepted dates for Egyptian history is part of what originally created a desire for a calibration curve. In its present form, carbon dating cannot easily be used conclusively to support the revised or conventional chronology. However, it ...
233. David, Solomon & Archaeology: Revised Chronologies Compared [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... : Revised Chronologies Compared by Jeremy Goldberg The starting point for this article is Velikovsky's roughly half-century old observation that the Exodus can very attractively be dated to just before the Hyksos invasion of Egypt (rise of Dynasty 15). As readers of this journal know very well, the main sticking point ever since has been chronology: since the accepted Egyptian chronology dates the start of Dyn.15 to c. 1650 BC or a bit later, while I Kings 6:1 appears to date the Exodus to c. 1450, Velikovsky's scenario appears impossible without a major downdating (lowering) of Egyptian chronology. Starting in the 1970s, extensive support for some such chronological shift has been ...
234. The Antiquity of the Egyptian Decans [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 2 No 2 (Nov 1979) Home | Issue Contents The Antiquity of the Egyptian Decans Michael G. Reade, D.S .C .IT IS generally supposed that the decans represent stars, probably ones chosen to mark the hours of the night by their risings. The indications are that a full set of decans comprises 36 stars, even if this does imply that the day and the night should have been divided into 36 equal parts instead of 24. Insofar as there is an orthodox explanation for this total number of decans, it is that stars were chosen which differed in their heliacal risings by 10 days, 10 days being the ...
235. A Review of Wells's Review of Sun, Moon, And Sothis [Journals] [Aeon]
... " of the Osiris Series; it is in fact Volume II of that series. This is but the first of many errors in the review. I shall discuss them more or less in the order of their occurrence. The frequent insults that Wells aims at me will be ignored- mostly. Wells says that I claim that "the Egyptian calendar year of 365 days was derived from the synodic period of the planet Venus" (which is approximately 584 days). Later, he says "based on" instead of "derived from." Both versions are false. I of course believe, along with nearly everyone else, that the 365-day year was "based on ...
236. Typhon and the Comet of the Exodus: Rockenbach's Lost Source [Journals] [Aeon]
... fixed star but somewhat darkish, much like Saturn. The tail was very long, somewhat bent in the middle, of a burning dark red colour, like a flame penetrating through smoke." [5 ] According to Servius, there was more to be found about comet Typhon in the works of Campester and Petosiris, the Roman and Egyptian astrologers, both of whom lived in the early centuries of the Christian era. [6 ] So many ancient sources have, however, been lost that it is now difficult, if not impossible, to trace the origin of this report. When it next surfaces, we find it listed in a book on comets which was published ...
... Chapter XXXVIII The Influence of Egypt Upon Temple-orientation in Greece IN the final pages of this book I have to show that recent investigations have put beyond all doubt the fact that the astronomical observations and temple-worship of the Egyptians formed the basis first of Greek and later of Latin temple-building. I have indicated in a former chapter that in our own days, and in our own land, the idea of orientation which I have endeavoured to work out for Egypt still holds its own. It was more than probable, therefore, that we should find the intermediate stages in those countries whither by universal consent Egyptian ideas percolated. Among these, Greece holds the first place, as it was ...
238. Dating the "Admonitions": Advance Report [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 1909 examination of the papyrus: "The view that our Leiden papyrus contains allusions to the Hyksos has the better support from the historical standpoint, but philological and other considerations seem rather to point to the seventh and tenth dynasties [between Old and Middle Kingdoms] as those which have provided the background of events." (Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage, Leipzig. 1909, p. 18) Adducing new evidence in his conclusion, he felt able to apply the statements regarding the Asiatics to the conditions of the earlier period, and gave as his final verdict on the Admonitions: It need not be too hastily assumed that their composition was contemporary with the events to which they ...
239. Notes and Queries [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents Notes and Queries Ancient Egyptian Stoneworking Techniques Q. On a visit to Glasgow, I visited the Burrell Collection - and there I saw some quite perplexing exhibits. They were vases dated to Egyptian predynastic times (earlier than 3000BC in conventional dating). They were beautifully round and smooth, each vase having a nicely formed lip around the top and two small handles, perfectly symmetrically placed, one on each side. If the vases had been pottery, formed from clay, the workmanship would have been impressive - but these had been cut from stone: gabbro, basalt, diorite ...
240. Ages In Chaos. File I (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... with, the age of the Dead Sea, strangely enough, would be less than 6,000 or even 5,000 years. (1 ) Was it formed in the days of the Exodus, when Mount Sinai erupted and some debacle took place at the Sea of Passage? Was the catastrophe felt also in Egypt? Does any Egyptian document speak of a catastrophe? I inquired and consulted books, but no book on the history of Egypt mentioned any such catastrophe. Then I came upon a reference to a sage, Ipuwer, who bewailed the fact that the river Nile had turned to blood. I searched for the source and found it in an edition by Alan ...
