61. A Note on the Term "Hyksos" [Kronos $]
... proof of his own obvious unfamiliarity with Velikovsky's published historical work and failure to practice the very methodology he preaches. Unfortunately, Pensee's uncritical review failed to strip away the facade of Kadish's empty criticism, thereby making the journal an unwitting accomplice to a baseless charge Let us examine the facts.¦ In Ages in Chaos( p. 56), one will clearly see that Velikovsky's so-called-translation of the term Hyksos is actually a quote from the antiquarian Josephus (Against Apion, I, 82) who had based his remarks upon_those of the Egyptian historian Manetho. Moreover, if one additionally checks reference #7 on the very same page, Velikovsky openly and freely admits that "at present the preferred etymology sees in the name Hyk-sos the Egyptian equivalent for 'the rulers of foreign countries'."(4) At this juncture, any impartial judge would either throw Kadish's case out of court, declare a mistrial, or order the prosecutor into his closed chambers for an explanation and/or reprimand. For our purposes, however, it is necessary to continue an examination ...
62. The Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia"" [Kronos $]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 3 (Fall 1975) Home¦ Issue Contents The Identification of the Biblical "Queen of Sheba" with Hatshepsut, "Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia"-- as proclaimed by Immanuel Velikovsky-- In the Light of New Archaeological Discoveries Eva Danelius Preface Over twenty years have passed since Immanuel Velikovsky published his most provocative book, Ages in Chaos I, in which he suggested that the accepted reconstruction of Egyptian history seemed to be based on a wrong conception of chronology and that this chronology should be revised, (1) Velikovsky not only challenged the so-called "Sothic" theory-- others had done this before him-- but suggested a substitute which would shorten the history of the so-called Egyptian New Empire down to the conquest of Egypt by Alexander the Great in 332 B.C., by several hundred years. As far as could be observed, this challenge has never been taken up by Egyptologists or students of ancillary disciplines: Velikovsky's approach to the problem was considered unsatisfactory and not complying with the rules of ...
63. Rejoinder to Velikovsky [Pensee]
... , then the absolute dates for the stratigraphical sequence of a country may be affected, but the validity of the sequence itself will not be. Thus, if the Amarna letters really belong to the eighth-seventh centuries rather than the fourteenth, the absolute dates for archaeological deposits in Palestine are all wrong. But that would not change the fact that in Palestine the material which archaeologists have classified as Late Bronze Age preceded the material designated as Iron Age. What I attempted to point out in my article was that in Palestine material of the Egyptian Empire (including the Amarna Period) and of the Mycenaean Age is found stratified in deposits with artifacts characteristic of the Palestinian Late Bronze Age. But pottery and other objects of the Assyrian Empire are found in occupation layers of Palestinian cities with artifacts characteristic of the Iron Age II. The occurrence of the Iron Age layers above Late Bronze Age layers proves that the Iron Age in that area is later than the Late Bronze Age. Thus, no matter what dates one assigns to the Amarna Age, the evidence from Palestine indicates ...
64. Editorial [SIS C&C Review $]
... perspective is completely distorted due to a fault, primarily in the chronology of Egypt, that left the histories of Egypt and Palestine almost totally devoid of synchronism. Abandoning Sothic dating, a system that soon collapses under scientific scrutiny, Velikovsky developed an entirely new scheme, using Biblical chronology as his yardstick. The flaws in the conventional chronology that he pointed to still remain. Velikovsky found a parallel to the Biblical account of the "plagues" that beset Egypt before the Israelite Exodus in the papyrus known as the "Admonitions of an Egyptian Sage", and dated both to the end of the Egyptian Middle Kingdom. (See R. M. Lowery: "Dating the Admonitions", in this issue.) The conventional scheme has no comparable literary evidence to offer, while Biblical scholars still face the difficult problem of reconciling the Hebrew accounts of the Exodus and Conquest of Canaan with the archaeological context they have been allotted in the Late Bronze Age. This context (second half of the 13th century BC) cannot honestly be said to have recommended itself through ...
65. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 16: THE DANCE [Quantavolution Website]
... Quantavolution.Org E-MAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org TABLE OF CONTENTS A FIRE NOT BLOWN... Investigations of Sacral Electrical Roots in Ancient Languages of the Mediterranean Region by Hugh Crosthwaite Chapter 16 THE DANCE Dancing is often associated with magic, and we will consider several typical examples of dancing described by ancient authors. ARKS Not only king David, but also Egyptian monarchs danced. Vide II Samuel V: 14: David danced before the Lord, girded with a linen ephod. Why dance before an ark? I hope that the answer to the question will emerge later, after a general review of what was done. RESURRECTION Dancing was part of resurrection technique aimed at fertility of fields and at raising the dead. In the first millenium B. C. the Etruscans were the acknowledged experts in the Mediterranean world and were consulted by the Romans. Histriones were the Etruscan mimes who performed their dance ritual when summoned in times of danger. Histrio may contain hia, the Etruscan and Albanian for a shadow, Greek skia. The aim would have been to resurrect the dead ...
66. Menkheperre Thutmose, A.K.A. Shishak Melech [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... at end.) Breasted (Vol. 11, para. 922) has a note about a stela in the Louvre which records Thutmose IV as "conqueror of Syria". The transliteration is Sksk h'rw (kharu). Here is the actual name Sksk applied to one of the Thutmosids. As Thutmose III was the greatest of all conquerors, it would be only natural that this would be his appellation- Shishak being the local pronunciation- and that it would be passed on to his successors. In Faulkner's Dictionary of Middle Egyptian, I find that Swsh- close enough to the cuneiform transliteration is "extend" boundaries. A further point to strengthen the identification is that in the Encyclopaedia Judaica, under the entry "Shishak", we read that "in the Aggada, Shishak's real name is said to be Zevuv (fly)". Breasted (Vol. 11, para. 25, note c) states that flies were awards given by the Thutmosid pharaohs and were decorations of honour, while Velikovsky (A in C, 9: " ...
67. <i>Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities</i> Journal (Review) [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History V:2 (July 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities Journal (Review) Reviewed by Herb Storck Toronto is a veritable hotbed for Ancient Near Eastern research. No less than three societies arrange lectures by prominent scholars and publish their own journals. These groups are the Mediterranean, Mesopotamian, and the Society for the Study of Egyptian Antiquities. The last-SSEA-is the longest lived of the three, in its fourteenth year, and shall be the subject of the present review. Its publication is the SSEA Journal, normally abbreviated JSSEA. In addition to reports of ongoing excavations at East Karnak and the Dakhleh Oasis, it has covered a number of valuable Egyptological investigations. As it would be difficult to review every article it publishes, I will highlight several of those recently issued. (1) "Osorkho Called Herakles," D. B. Redford (JSSEA, IX: 1-2, 33-36). In this short piece Dr. Redford, Professor of Egyptology at the University of Toronto, ...
68. Astral Kingship [Aeon Journal $]
... a great sarcophagus of granite, which the King of Upper and Lower Egypt, Mestiu-re, son of Re, Cambyses, dedicated, who is given all life, all stability and good fortune, all health, all gladness, appearing as king of Upper and Lower Egypt, forever. (8) Cambyses also visited Sas where he worshipped before the great goddess Neith and offered appropriate sacrifices as those before him had done. (9) Encouraged by the success of his Babylonian enterprises, Cambyses was careful to adopt the titles of Egyptian royal protocol and to put himself in proper filial relationship to the Egyptian gods....By the standards of the ancient world, Egypt now belonged to Persia by right of conquest, but Cambyses himself appears to have legitimized his rule by other claims. His adoption of the Egyptian royal title 'Offspring of Ra', as well as his prostration before the statue of Neith at Sais, have been regarded by some scholars as formal acts implying legitimization and coronation. (10) Cambyses even ventured to reach the Oasis of Amon in ...
69. A Harbinger of the Exodus? [SIS C&C Review $]
... '- may have been independently 'interpreted' by two mathematically-minded redactors. 'About six hundred thousand' is itself an almost certainly misleading figure. Tribal strengths were 'males of twenty years old and upward, all that are able to go forth to war in Israel' [Numbers 1:3. Old and infirm men were probably excluded, so the total of adult males would be higher. Males under the age of twenty can only be guessed at, but demographic statistics suggest that they would number approximately as many again [4. Egyptian limitations on male births did not apply to girls, so female Israelites would probably outnumber males: whence if Exodus 12:37 is taken literally, the Israelites would have totalled 2,000,000 to 2,500,000! In fact the '600,000' figure is a mistranslation. "The word translated (and indeed understood by the redactor) as 'thousands' was actually here (and demonstrably elsewhere in the Bible) a term for a military unit. This unit averaged ten men" [5. ...
70. Chapter VI: Dating Methods and Misapplications [The Age of Velikovsky] [The Age of Velikovsky] [Books]
... not release original data. Sorensen summarizes bv first stating that the basic concept of dendrochronology has been shown to be useful for the recent past. He then briefly restates the methods employed in the 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 can be instructive to review some of the carbon dating results and methods relating to these chronologies. Soon after Libby's publication of information about the carbon dating method, Velikovsky began his attempt to have ...
