101. When Earth Was Not Yet Created: An Account of Sumerian Cosmogony [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... have been unknown. Thus were "Heaven" and "Earth" created (Fig. 8); and it is important to point out that it is as of the celestial battle (Tablet IV, lines 95-96) -and not from the very beginning, as scholars have attempted to show hitherto- that the "creation" of Genesis (" In the beginning .. ." ) joins, parallels, and condenses the earlier Mesopotamian epic. The book of Genesis repeatedly stresses that the Heaven or shama'yim (created at the same time as the Earth) was the raki'a, the "hammered out bracelet." The Mesopotamian texts use exactly parallel terms, shame and ...
102. Golden Age Canopy by Isaac Vail [Books]
... sacred and profane, abundantly prove this." In that little volume it was pointed out that the solar orb during the antediluvian period was hidden from the view of man, explaining why the rainbow was not seen before the flood. That the "great deep" was on high. "The idea that the deep' referred to in Genesis was the terrestrial ocean must be abandoned." "A body of exterior waters skirting the atmosphere, having its motion gradually diminished, would gradually descend toward the earth and must have spread to the poles by the mere force of gravity in the torrid and temperate zones there would have been a prolonged down rush of waters but at the ...
103. The Myth of the Tower [Books]
... language-confusion myths do not mention the building of towers. Both classes however, seem to have an element in connection, though it is in some cases very faint: a background of cosmic disturbances. Inspired by the existence of these two main classes of reports in the mythology of other peoples. Gunkel has attempted to separate also the material of Genesis xi.19 into a tower-building myth and a city building plus language confusion myth and, it must be admitted with great skill. However, led astray by the redactor's gloss about Babel', he supposes the myths to be of possibly Babylonian origin. Unfortunately this very theory deprives him of the basis for his case, for in ...
104. Religion and Education [Books] [de Grazia books]
... but at least not that bit about God building the world in a week. The expert testimony against the law may have been misleading, however, as to the current posture of science respecting biological change. Walter Sullivan (NYT Dec. 27) has deftly indicated the short-fall of truth: that theories of evolution now also include theories of genesis in outer space or in transferences from cosmic bodies; that evidence of transitional types or "missing links" in evolution is today scarcely richer than in Charles Darwin's time; and that, in some quarters, jumps in evolution are considered probable. In this last case, we go back to catastrophic and saltation theories of the past century ...
105. The Two Sargons and Their Successors (Part II) [Journals] [Aeon]
... Abrahamic tradition could not have originated prior to the period between -850 and -550.(73) Actually, any reading of Van Seters' hypothesis(74) should be balanced by a careful perusal of A.S . Yahuda's.(75) Long before Van Seters, Yahuda had shown that the Pentateuch, which includes the Book of Genesis, is saturated with Egyptian elements while "the Babylonian influence in the language is so minute as to be almost nonexistent."(76) This makes it difficult to explain if this literature was really compiled during, or after, the Babylonian exile. Yahuda's studies renders it more likely that these books were put into writing not long ...

107. The Creation of Man (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... . One of the children was born in the ordinary way, but the other one forced his way through his mother's side, and so caused her death. This is almost a complete parallel to the above story. The Cashinaua motif also appears- with a curious transposition- in the second myth of the creation of the sexes in the Bible, Genesis ii. 21- 22. Here again we find the old man skilled in surgery, the sole male survivor from another world. With him was saved a young woman, big with child. He performed the Caesarean operation on her; she survived, and in due time became the mother-wife of her son-husband. Such, at least, ...
108. The Bible as History? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... - so the reader has to be constantly alert. For example, the repeated reworking of biblical texts during the Babylonian exile and in the centuries following is well attested but this should not be a denial of the survival of books which existed many centuries before the Babylonian exile (e .g . the Book of Generations, now incorporated into Genesis). One of his most startling conclusions is that much Old Testament ideology (and this flavours many a narrative) constitutes a world view which was in defiance of the facts'. The truth behind the demise of Israel and Judah was simply that the gods of their invaders proved more powerful than their own Deity. In exile, ...
109. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... movers in the original marketing of such objects of catastrophic affirmation had been Leroy Ellenberger! Zysman believes that Velikovsky's work needs to be considered in a more general context in which it is necessary to go right back to the origins of myths to understand the events of the 1st and 2nd millennium BC. He is working on the implications of the Genesis myth and was there to present us with two excerpts from his work Unravelling Genesis'. The first excerpt, concerning theories of evolution and in particular the origins of man, was read out to the audience and elicited a vigorous response from those perhaps a little stunned by some revolutionary new ideas. Zysman makes absolutely no compromise with uniformitarianism ...
110. The "Forgotten Empire". Ch. 4. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... Carchemish shortly before the battle with Necho; he claimed to be the overlord of all the Hatti lands. The biblical table of the descendants of Adam states that Canaan, son of Ham, begat Sidon his firstborn, and Heth, and the Jebusite, and the Amorite, and the Girgasite, and the Hivite, and so on (Genesis 10:15ff.). The land between the Nile and the Euphrates, promised to the patriarch Abraham, is said to have been occupied by Kenites, Kenizzites, Kadmonites, Hittites, and six other tribes.3 When the Israelites approached Palestine from the desert they found Hittites, Jebusites, and Amorites dwelling in the mountains, ...
