31. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 12: CATASTROPHE, MYTH AND SKY [Quantavolution Website]
... and poured oil on it. He named the place Bethel [house of God. We shall see later the electrical significance of the name Luz, and its presence, in disguise, in Greek. In chapter XXXII: 24, Jacob wrestles all night with a man. The man touches the hollow of Jacob's thigh and puts it out of joint. He tells Jacob that he is to take the name of Israel. Jacob calls the place Peniel, "for I have seen God face to face". There are many Egyptian references [in the Book of the Dead to the God of the Thigh. These probably concern the constellation of the Great Bear in the northern sky. The prophet Isaiah writes that "his rod was upon the sea", referring to Moses stretching out his hand to cause the Egyptians to be drowned [Exodus XIV: 26. Rods were associated with sky phenomena and snakes. Isaiah, XIV: 12, speaks of Lucifer, son of the morning, having fallen from heaven. Lucifer is the one referred to in ...
32. Chronological Placements of the Dynasties of Manetho [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1997:1 (Oct 1997) Home¦ Issue Contents Chronological Placements of the Dynasties of Manetho by Jesse E. Lasken Jess Lasken works as an attorney with the US National Science Foundation. He has argued in articles in C&CR, C&CW, JACF, Epigraphic Society Occasional Papers, Discussions in Egyptology and elsewhere that the Egyptian and other cross-dated chronologies are seriously flawed. He is especially interested in researching the origins of literate civilisation and assessing the historicity of the Bible. Summary Based on Manetho, 31 mostly consecutive dynasties are thought to have ruled Egypt, many of these assumed to have ruled all of Egypt, even though his epitomes associate them with particular cities and do not specifically attribute consecutive or central rule to them. By erroneously assigning to earlier dynasties some Persian or Ptolemaic period epigraphic material written in the Egyptian language that manifests centralised Egyptian rule, Egyptologists have reinforced the idea that many of Manetho's dynasties ruled all of Egypt rather than more limited areas. An alternative interpretation is proposed in which Manetho's ...
33. Peoples of the Sea: An Art Historical Perspective ... [Kronos $]
... a strong challenge to specialists which they cannot afford to ignore. *** Introduction pp. xv-xvii: The point regarding the Carbon 14 dates is important, especially since it can help cut through the very tricky business of interpreting texts. Twelfth or Fourth Century? p. 5: Alessandra Nibbi does dispute that the Peoples of the Sea came from the Aegean area. She accepts the chronology but prefers to reorder our understanding of the origins of these people and attendant geographical problems. See The Sea Peoples: A Re-examination of the Egyptian Sources and The Sea Peoples and Egypt. pp. 6-12: It is good to hold firm on the point of the Greek letters on the tiles of Ramesses III's palace. It is a crux which, to the best of my knowledge, defies conventional explanation. pp. 12-17: It is at least possible that the cemetery was used over a long period of time, if one adheres to the conventional chronology. pp. 21-28: The identification of "Irsu" of Papyrus Harris with the Persian satrap or king is ...
34. Rethinking Hatshepsut [SIS C&C Review $]
... From: SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1999:1 (Jul 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Rethinking Hatshepsut by David K. Down Some 50 years ago Dr Siegfried Horn identified the Egyptian princess who drew Moses out of the water as Queen Hatshepsut of the XVIII dynasty. He did so by synchronising biblical chronology, I Kings 6:1, which dated the Exodus to about 1445BC, with the then standard Egyptian chronology date for Hatshepsut from 1504 to 1482BC. The alignment was pleasing. Hatshepsut was Egypt's greatest queen, she built a beautiful temple at Deir el Bahri and she had no sons to succeed her. At the time it seemed a good idea but with advancing knowledge of Egyptian history this theory is no longer tenable. Horn was well aware of the problems associated with the idea of an Exodus in the 15th century, which includes the XVIII Dynasty, but adopted the attitude that 'all the evidence is not in yet'. However, rather than support this view, recent discoveries have made it less consistent with the evidence. The Pharaoh of ...
35. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... pp. 4-15) Comment from Birgit Liesching, Dick Atkinson, Michael Reade and Eric Aitchison Here we go again! John Bimson clarified as much as is possible in his earlier paper [1. Damien Mackey may think he's found something worthwhile but he ignores facts that cannot be overlooked and introduces extra complications in what are basically several different tales. 1. Solomon The whole problem starts, of course, with Velikovsky. He seemed to be unaware that Solomon is a fictional character and tried to tie him into real, i.e. Egyptian, history. I was surprised to discover, in the 1980s, in a serious and orthodox French-language serialisation of the Bible, richly illustrated and interspersed with reports of archaeological findings, that there is not a shred of evidence to prove that either David or Solomon were real people, unless we take the El-Amarna correspondence as providing literary proof for David- but Solomon? I still challenge anyone to show an inscription bearing his name, or any trace of the first temple in Jerusalem. It appears that there is not much evidence ...
36. David, Detente and Pharaoh's Daughter [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... enemies". Under this definition, Israel and Egypt were friends in their mutual hatred of the Amalekites. When the Amalekite cities of Auaris and Sharuhen fell, the principal incentive for Egyptian-Israelite understanding fell with them. An uneasy truce prevailed. Under Saul and David, Israel was kept busy defending itself against the Philistines, Ammonites, Moabites, et al., and couldn't give much thought to Egypt. But it is reasonable to assume that the Egyptians were already thinking about how they might re-establish their former hegemony over Palestine. That Egyptian ex-slaves were now in power in Jerusalem could only have helped to persuade Pharaoh that the Israelites were rightfully his subjects. However, David's success in suppressing his neighbours, along with his penchant for massacre and methodical slaughter (I Samuel 27:9, II Samuel 8:2), would have made the recuperating kingdom of Egypt very cautious about attacking Israel. Nevertheless, Egypt may well have tested Israel's mettle whenever an opportunity presented itself. There is evidence of Egyptian-Israelite conflict during David's reign. In a listing of David's heroes ...
37. First Dynasty - pre-Flood or post-Flood [SIS Internet Digest $]
... place the 4th dynasty at the time of the Flood and easily before if there is overlapping. Menes is talked about as having been the first to drain Egypt(after the Flood?) 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. If the Old Kingdom was post-Flood then what was the catastrophe which brought the Old Kingdom to ruins? Schaeffer describes six very widespread catastrophes which wreaked havoc on the ancient world to varying degrees. ...
38. The Amarna Period and Levantine Archaeology [SIS Internet Digest $]
... to go beyond the boundaries of Egypt and explore events in Syria-Palestine to the north, as revealed in the Amarna correspondence and after. Additionally, events in the reign of King Horemheb as they relate to the Levant will be discussed. Content In the Amarna tablets we are dealing with a body of foreign correspondence. Since there is a certain amount of social and political detail in these, we can look for a Biblical period in which this fits best. During the reigns of Amenhotep 3 and Akhenaten there was a virtual cessation of Egyptian activity in this area, and the campaign led by Horemheb during Tutankhamun's reign was the first resurgence of military interest here. There is an alternative view which claims that in fact the Levant was always this tumultuous and difficult to govern, and the Amarna letters simply give us a window on this which is absent in other periods. However, it seems unlikely that Egypt under strong rulers would tolerate this. As mentioned elsewhere, much of the correspondence is sent from rulers of city-states who were vassals of Egypt- some remaining loyal ...
39. Assyria, Karduniash, Babylon: A Rational chronology [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... Rational chronology Barry Page A revised chronology must be a complete revised chronology. It must solve the issue of all the countries under chronological debate and comprehensively realign all the dates and data at hand. To work out the revision of the chronology of Egypt, Israel, Hatti, and Greece withoutaligning Assyria, Karduniash, and Babylon as well, is not achieving substantial conclusions that can withstand scholarly criticism With relative ease the chronologies of Egypt, Hatti, and Greece fall in place with approximately 500-year adjustments made to the chronological scheme; The Egyptian New Kingdom is redated from 1500-1250 B.C.. to 1000-750 B.C. The Hatti imperial period from 1400-1250 to 900-750, and the Mycenean period from 14-13th to 9-8th century. All the realigning can only be considered substantive when the relative responses to the Assyro-Babylonian dating system have been established. To turn a hypothesis into a firm agreement we must complete the scheme to include all the fertile crescent countries, as they all have an intertwined chronology. That is the aim of this article. Before starting our analysis we must define the two ...
40. Oedipus and Akhnaton [Pensee]
... with all races, in all times and everywhere, but because man the wanderer has welded the world into one ecumene since the Stone Age. In Neolithic times, men were in touch with their kind across the greatest distances of land and water. No one should look askance at Velikovsky's bridging the gap between the hundred-gated Thebes of Egypt and the seven-gated Thebes in Boeotia during one of the most international periods of history (the Amarna Age), when the Aegean and Egypt were in close touch with each other. At that time Egyptian wares appear in Greece, and Mycenean wares in Egypt --as we know from archeological discoveries. To round out the record, we have rich written documentation from Egypt (including the international correspondence from Amarna) and from Greece where the recently deciphered Linear A and B tablets supplement Homer's reference to Oedipus and the later dramatic forms of the story in Aeschylus and Sophocles. As Velikovsky points out, the wonder is that Freud, who gave the world an awareness of the "Oedipus complex" and whose last book Moses and Monotheism highlights ...
