81. Sothic Dating: A "Surrealjoinder" (Forum) [Kronos $]
... , say "if" I have made all these muddles I have done little to inspire confidence in my pronouncements on other matters. Is he not quite sure that I have indeed muddled? I do plead guilty to muddling the definition of arcus visionis and the apparent motion of Sirius but I repeat that definitions and applications are quite different and if the latter are correct that is what is important and I am sure Rose would agree. It is flattering, but incorrect, to be termed by him "the world's leading authority on Egyptian astronomy". That has to be my colleague O. Neugebauer, who indeed has corrected me in the past on arcus visionis. I claim only to have some knowledge of Egyptian calendars. But what of my other muddles? Let us inquire first into Rose's criticism of my handling of Samuel and the Canopus Decree. He states that "Samuel puts the accession on Dios 25 Macedonian= January 29 Julian, -245, which is Choiak 8 Egyptian; the '7' is an error". Now Samuel says nothing at all ...
82. A Response to Forrest [SIS C&C Review $]
... 1. Second, despite promptings by Velikovskian researchers (who firmly directed him to the most important relevant literature), he parrots as gospel the opinions of Gardiner and Wilson that the descriptions in the papyrus "must" refer to conditions following the breakdown of the Old Kingdom (not the dissolution attendant upon the fall of the Middle Kingdom, as Velikovsky proposes)- contriving to ignore both the dire complexity of the whole problem of attempting a historical date for the Admonitions and the fact that no less an organ than the Journal of Egyptian Archaeology saw fit to publish a paper by an established Egyptologist (Van Seters) arguing for a date matching that advocated by Velikovsky! Third, quoting an extract (actually, a series of extracts) from the papyrus in Wilson's mutilated version, he aligns himself firmly with the conventional dogma that "the upheaval described is a social and political one, not a cosmic one", but dismisses the complex question of its cause in one line (opting for invasion and insurrection), giving no space to the numerous other possibilities ...
83. A Test of Time: Volume I the Bible - From Myth to History by David M. Rohl [SIS C&C Review $]
... Centuries of Darkness. First, whereas the latter covers a wide geographical area, the present volume is concerned almost exclusively with Egypt and Palestine. Second, while James and his colleagues are chiefly concerned with the Late Bronze and early Iron Ages and the transition between the two periods, Rohl covers the much longer period between the early Israelite monarchy and the Third Intermediate Period (TIP) in Egypt. Third, most of the data used by James and his colleagues are archaeological, whereas Rohl bases much of his reconstruction of biblical and Egyptian history on synchronisms derived from detailed comparisons of the Old Testament and Egyptian historical texts. Finally, Rohl argues in favour of a reduction of some 350 years both in Egyptian New Kingdom dates and in the transition from the Late Bronze to the early Iron Ages, rather than the 250 postulated by James and his colleagues. This book has had a long period of gestation. While the author's interest in Egyptology was triggered initially by a visit to Egypt as a child in the 1950s, it was several decades before he was able ...
84. Rockenbach's 'De Cometis' and the Identity of Typhon [SIS C&C Review $]
... the giants. The comet was also seen, as if rolling along another road in Syria, Babylonia, and India; it was in the sign of Capricorn, in the form of a wheel. This was at the time the Children of Israel were led from Egypt to the Promised Land...." It should be stated straight away that the reinstated sentence (which I have emphasised) throws serious doubt on the identification of king Typhon proposed by Velikovsky. In Velikovsky's view, Typhon is to be identified with the Egyptian pharaoh called Thom in the text of the el-Arish shrine. In one place he suggests a hypothetical full name of Taui Thom for the pharaoh, and expresses a view that this king "is Tau Timaeus (Tutimaeus) of Manetho, in whose days 'a blast of God's displeasure' fell upon Egypt..." (1) The el-Arish inscription relates how Thom perished in "the place of the whirlpool" amid circumstances which closely parallel the events at Israel's crossing of the Red Sea (2). In Velikovsky's view ...
85. Letters [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... April 2, 1962 Dear Dr. Velikovsky: Please excuse my delay in sending you this report of my inquiries concerning radiocarbon dating of New Kingdom Egyptian materials at the University of Pennsylvania. Due to the absence from Philadelphia of several key people I was delayed in making my inquiries. Afterward I tried to contact you by telephone so as to give you a very prompt report, but was unable to reach you. Then I was taken out of town for several days. And all in all, a much longer period of time has elapsed since our initial discussion of this project than ever I anticipated. However, a sound and successful approach has been made. And I shall not hesitate to return again and again, fully assured of the greatest kindness, helpfulness, and understanding on the part of the University. So perhaps the delay has not been without value. Mutual friends secured for me a most favorable introduction to Dr. Froelich Rainey, Director of the Museum of the University of Pennsylvania. Dr. Rainey is a vigorous, enthusiastic, obviously ...
86. My Kingdom for a Horse ... [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... infighting with the Southern Nobles and life had not been kind. Here was a possible turn in the tides of war. A Semitic horde with whom they were familiar-- and on top of that carrying the latest war weapon, the compound bow-- was indeed a powerful combination. It is related that this bow was invented by these Semites, and it was a clever improvement of wood and bone delivering a considerable range. It was the newest weapon of its type. [2 It was said that Timaois, the Egyptian king, and his advisors, upon seeing these virile men riding into their country, gave up their land without a fight. Egypt was thus taken over by these Semites, who were called Hyksos. We are informed they ruled for 511 years-- the most peaceful and prosperous time the Ancient Egyptians had ever seen. Yet many historians, archaeologists, and especially theologians regard the period as traumatic for all Egypt, although it is nearly impossible to reconstruct any details. [3 Why? I hope here to shed some ...

88. The Seven-Day War [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... New York Post SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1948 The Seven-Day War The Egyptians are Weak with the Sword but Strong with Their Mouths By OBSERVER In the seven days of fighting between the southern army of Israel and the Royal Army of Egypt, the Egyptian troops have taken a beating on hip and thigh. The Israel have smashed the army of Farouk along the entire front, cut off the troops of Jerusalem and Bethlehem from every line of communication with Egypt, captured Beersheba and other strongholds, and slashed to ribbons the royal army on the coast. On Oct. 21 the New York Times correspondent radioed that there were ? signs of panic in the positions still held by the Egyptians.? ? The Israel army fought on with increasing success... The Egyptian troops remaining in the Negev were in a bad way, and the fall of Beersheba threatened those about Jerusalem with a similar fate.? On the same day and on the same page of the New York Times the Cairo correspondent quoted an official source of the Egyptian government as declaring that ? ...
89. Assessing Middle Kingdom Lunar Dates [SIS C&C Review $]
... : SIS Chronology& Catastrophism Review 1994 (Vol XVI) (Oct 1995) Home¦ Issue Contents Assessing Middle Kingdom Lunar Dates work reviewed: Lynn E. Rose: 'The Astronomical Evidence for Dating the End of the Middle Kingdom of Ancient Egypt to the Early Second Millennium: A Reassessment', JNES 53:4 (1994), pp. 237-261 In his reassessment of the astronomical evidence for dating Egypt's Middle Kingdom, Professor Rose is primarily concerned with re-evaluating Richard A. Parker's use of lunar documents from the time of the Egyptian 12th Dynasty in support of his El-Lahun (Illahun) 'Sothic' date of 1872 BC for Year 7 of Sesostris III. Rose has selected Parker because it is the latter's 'Sothic' date, based upon Borchardt's identification of the unnamed pharaoh of the Illahun Papyrus as Sesostris III, that is the one largely accepted today. As a result of Parker's 'Sothic' estimation for this regnal year, many now consider the end of the 12th Dynasty to be astronomically fixed at 1786 BC. Rose quotes Gardiner's well-known statement in regard to the ...
90. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Aeon Journal $]
... instability, Venus was dislodged from its visually motionless position in the center of Saturn and began revolving around the polar axis. To the observer on Earth, it appeared as if the luminous orb was exhaled or spit out by Saturn. The god externalized his heart or soul. Now, a comet- like stream reaching upward from Venus toward Saturn (hence, not originally seen as a connecting stream) took on the form of a simple spiral or curl-- what I have called the lifebreath curl-- reflected in the Egyptian hieroglyph [* !* image. Mythically, this vital form of the mother goddess was viewed as a revolving beard, sidelock, or feather, a rope or thread curling out from Saturn, a curling serpent (or protruding serpent neck and head), and a torch or flame. Hence, it is no coincidence that the word-images used to depict these forms are, around the world, the pre-astronomical hieroglyphs for the comet. Because of its close relationship to the Mars pillar (seeming to hang from the apex of ...
