151. On The Merits of the Revised Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... , Tukulti-Ninurta, if not for the generally anti-Biblical leaning in Assyriology, could be written with equal validity as Tiglath-Nimrod. It might, however, be more appropriate for Mr Rohl to ask someone before lashing out so arrogantly. d). Again, Assyrian chroniclers are more likely to have written down what they heard than to have researched the etymological origins of foreign royal names. However, despite the similarity between Sosenk and Shushan ki (the determinative for a city is believed not to have been pronounced, but no-one has asked an Akkadian to find out for sure, and even so, would a Libyan know that?), the name of an Elamite city doesn't seem to ...
152. The Rape of Helen [Books] [de Grazia books]
... represents the god Mars-Ares. The Moon that had been "embraced" over centuries by Hephaestus (Athena-planet Venus) in his encounters with the Earth is taken away from him; Athena-Hephaestus and their allies must repossess it. Helen is the Moon Goddess and the world is the male version of Helen, father of the family of all Greeks. Etymologists have also indicated a connection between "Selene" and "Helios," the latter deriving from the same Indo-European root as sun and solis [3 ]. Thus she symbolizes in the battle of the gods the coming of the Hellenes into their revived nationhood in conjunction with the triumph of the Athena faction of the family of Zeus. ...
153. Knowing the Gods [Books] [de Grazia books]
... be led to a "higher religious synthesis" of the relations between gods and the natural world, while others will be led out of religion entirely. Many people believe that they know gods by their effects, not by the grand effects of nature but by targeted effects upon issues of personal concern. The word "god" in Aryan etymology stems from the words "to sacrifice" and "to invoke." Invocation, prayer, and rituals are seen to be followed by events unexplainable except by a direct divine intervention. A sick child is for example, the object of medical therapy and religious solicitations; a cure is accredited to the divine; a failure of cure ...
154. The Creation of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... thrown by Pyrrha into women. Thus the Earth was re-peopled. One might be led to think that this myth was an invented one, based on the similarity of the Greek words laai, stones, and laoi, people. In fact, this sounds very definitely like a late addition by a would-be clever commentator. Though the science of etymology does not at present recognize any connection between laas, a stone, and laos, a people, there seems to us to be as much relationship between the two words as there is between Latin humus, the soil, and liomo, a man; and Hebrew adamah, loam, and dddm, man. However, a clumsy ...
155. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Egyptian Neit (in reverse order). Neit was also associated with flood waters and organising the annual flood (Nile) via irrigation and he suggests that the drainage of the Early Bronze Greek central plain (Boiotia) represents evidence of Egyptian influence during the Old Kingdom period (although the main thrust of his argument is largely based on etymology and similarities in cult practice etc). Irrigation agriculture was practised in diverse lands - central America, Peru, China, India and even in central Asia during the 4th millenium BC (the river valleys between the Aral and Caspian seas). (S .P . Gupta: Archaeology of Soviet Central Asia, Delhi, 1979. ...
... created the heaven and the Earth. And the Earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. ' The literal translation, however, would read something like this: In the beginning Elohim [plural] created [bärä; etymological meaning: cut out, forced into shape; the word contains the idea of violence] the heavens [plural] and the Earth. And the Earth was tõhü' and bõhü, and darkness was on the surface of the tehõm and the spirit [wind, or fog] of Elohim brooding on the surface of the waters. ...
... . No firm footing could be found in the quick-sands of tradition, and only fanciful deductions could be made. How could it be otherwise? For the explanation of the content of mythology was attempted, either with the aid of philology-queen of humane sciences though she is, she was singularly unfitted to the task and contributed little more than an etymological survey of the ground or with the aid of psychology equally out of place as a real key instead of with the aid of astrophysics. Neither was it possible to relate the myths to a cosmological system, for there was no theory whose deductions Would have agreed even remotely with the story the myths told of the beginning and end of ...
158. The Creation of the Earth -- the First Account [Books]
... had come about which many commentators have felt were missing here. We shall return to the passage, Genesis i. 1, on a later page for various considerations from the mythological standpoint. (2b) and darkness was upon the face of the deep. The Hebrew word for the deep', tehom, is closely related, both etymologically and as regards the object described, to tohu, the great watery chaos which obtained during, and for some time after, the cataclysm. Already during the later stages of the disintegration of the former satellite the waters of the terrestrial oceans, which had beers held in the tropical zone in the form of a girdle-tide', had ...
159. Notes (The Atlantis Myth) [Books]
... uttering a piercing war-cry, which reverberated terribly in heaven and earth# This `birth' happened on the Triton River, in the far west. The meaning of the name of Athena is unknown; it is certain, however, that it does not mean `the flower-like one'; most probably it is ultimately derived from the same etymological base as Attica', the land which she played so great a part in protecting. Note 16. Phoroneus was the son of Inaohus (the `rapid current') and Melia (the `Ash'). According to the Greek historian Acusilaus (fifth century BC) the Ogygian Flood happened in his time, and, ...
160. Venus Worship and Ancient China [Articles]
... Ching is a picture of a head with a dock (sp?) in it, and legs. Now, that image is the prototypical image of the dragon. We find in Mesoamerica, there's also a name for the dragon pronounced "I ." It's the same dragon. When you examine the Mesoamerican dragon and check out the etymology of that in those languages, you find it's the same as in Chinese. So as to more globally speaking, it is not true that the dragon ever was this benign figure and has nothing to do with either Venus or anything else. It has everything to do with Venus. And I believe that's the prototypical image of Venus ...
