81. The Temple in Jerusalem (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... the Scriptures. The conquest by Thutmose III was a triumphant sweep across Palestine, and the chronicles of Judah and Israel could not possibly have omitted it; indeed, a conspicuous record of it must be there. Once more this reconstruction is put to the test. The absence of a scriptural record of the conquest of Palestine by an invading Egyptian army under the personal leadership of a pharaoh, in the years following the reign of Solomon, would be regarded as irrefutable evidence against it. But this record is preserved in the Scriptures, and it coincides completely with the Karnak inscriptions. Two monarchies rose from the ruins of the Amalekite Empire: Israel and Egypt. Israel, the ...
82. Pharaoh Seti the Great and His Foreign Connections [Journals] [Kronos]
... Assyria of Assurbanipal (668-627 B. C.) and only about two centuries anterior to Plato. I have been able to connect the cosmogony of Seti's cenotaph unambiguously with The Seven Tablets of Creation** of Assurbanipal. This is demonstrated in detail in Part II; in Part III the Timaeus of Plato is proven to be a thoroughly Egyptian document, and the indebtedness of Plato to Pythagoras is shown not to be the sole nexus between Plato and Egypt. Indeed, a connection is traced between Seti's sarcophagus inscription- The Book of Gates***- and Plato. The substance of Part II contains many translations of Egyptian hieroglyphics with appropriate questions; Part III requires some ...
83. Sothic Dating Redux (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... projected backwards with sufficient latitude to accommodate possible errors of observation and that is all that my argument depends on. In the category of erroneous speculation let us place Shane H. Mage's quotation from the Ebers Papyrus about an eye-salve "as told to us by a Jew from Byblos". The word he accepted as meaning "Jew" is Egyptian 3m, a term used as early as the Old Kingdom. It is translated in the Wörterbuch and by other editors of Ebers as "Asiatic". A Jew may be an Asiatic but not all Asiatics are Jews. Rather than continue in this point by point fashion I propose to set forth a few observations on the Egyptian calendar ...
84. The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:2 (Jan 2002) Home | Issue Contents The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology by Lynn E. Rose The 1996 reprint of the 2nd edition of Kitchen's The Third Intermediate Period in Egypt (1100-650 BC) [1 ] included a new Preface emphasising a west-Theban graffito that supposedly noted the arrival of the flood on III 3ht 3 in Year 1 of Baienre (= Merneptah). This is the usual reading. Later, an alternative reading by David Rohl will be considered. On p. xlv, Kitchen gives the full graffito [2 ] as follows: Year 1, 3rd month of Akhet [= Inundation ...
85. The Chronology of the Early Egyptian New Kingdom [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History I:2 (Apr 1979) Home | Issue Contents The Chronology of the Early Egyptian New Kingdom Geoffrey Gammon It is generally accepted that the Egyptian XVIIIth Dynasty, which expelled the Hyksos and inaugurated the New Kingdom, began to reign in the 16th century B.C . This consensus has been challenged, notably by Immanuel Velikovsky and Donovan Courville,1 who have separately advanced powerful arguments for lowering this date by some 500 years, to the last quarter of the 11th century B.C . However, it is universally agreed that Egyptian independence was finally extinguished by Artaxerxes III Ochus in 343 B.C . Since there can be no ...
86. A Potential Historical Connection for the Death and Burial of Jacob in Genesis [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of Jacob. There follows after that event a historical vacuum from the end of the book of Genesis to the beginning of Exodus. According to the chronology given in Genesis 15 and Exodus 12:40, that historical vacuum, during which we know little of the Israelite people in Egypt, covered approximately four centuries, the length of their Egyptian sojourn. If we were able to date the closing event for the patriarchal age, we would be able to extend the events of that age back before that time. Since the death and burial of Jacob is the terminal event in that series, it merits some attention for any possible historical connections that we might propose for it. ...
87. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt [Journals] [SIS Review]
... New Chronology, which subtracts 2-300 years from pharaonic history to synchronise it with Israel's history. This is in contrast to Gunnar Heinsohn's reconstruction which subtracts at least a 1,000 years. The author does not agree with all details of Heinsohn's reconstruction but he demonstrates that Heinsohn is on the right track. A look at the very beginnings of Egyptian and Hebrew history reveals contemporary characters and events unnaturally separated in textbooks by 1,000 years. According to biblical tradition, the Hebrews were a tribe of Mesopotamian nomads who, under the leadership of Abraham, or Abram, had made their way to the promised land' of Canaan. Their wanderings did not stop there however, for ...
... Chapter III The Astroxomical Basis of the Egyptiax Pantheon IT will be abundantly clear from the statements made in the foregoing chapter that, as I have said, the main source of information touching things Egyptian consists no longer in writings like the Vedas, but in the inscriptions on the monuments, and the monuments themselves. It is true that, in addition to the monuments, we have the Book of the Dead, and certain records found in tombs; but, in the main, the source of information which has been most largely drawn upon consists in the monuments themselves- the zodiacs being included in that term. It has been impossible, up to the present time, ...
89. Epilogue: Questions And Answers (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... dominates all judgments of professional archaeologists. Literary monuments are considered of definitely secondary value and, when found in wrong stratigraphical positions, are considered to be intrusions. Pottery, however, especially Mycenean and post-Mycenean (Geometric in various stages, and Orientalizing), defines by its presence the chronological placement of the strata. Scarabs, often carrying royal Egyptian names, are second only to pottery (usually sherds) as arbiters of age. What is then the verdict coming from pottery and scarabs in the court where conventional chronology and the revised scheme of it stand before the bar? 7. And what is the verdict coming from radiocarbon laboratories? I gave the story in short in the ...
90. A REVISED CHRONOLOGY FOR THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST [Journals] [SIS Review]
... point the disconcerting absence of definite synchronisms between the history of the Hebrews and the history of Egypt, as it is generally accepted. From the time of Abraham (usually dated in the first centuries of the second millenium BC) down to the time of Hezekiah and the Ethiopian Dynasty of Egypt (end of the eighth century BC), Egyptian and Hebrew histories are devoid of reliable synchronism. Of all the hypothetical synchronisms put forward only the identification of Sheshonk I, founder of the Libyan (Twenty Second) Dynasty of Egypt, with the Shishak who sacked Solomon's Temple is generally accepted - and this too is challenged by Velikovsky. It is difficult for scholars who have worked within ...
