... visible universe. One of the strange facts accessible to the common reader but quite overlooked is the universal absence of the true sun from the ancient cosmologies, and at the same time a direct or indirect allusion to the stars. I may here recall the very strange fact that the sun and moon are not mentioned in the cosmogonic narrative of Genesis, while the stars are particularly alluded to. The statement runs: "And God said ' Let there be lights in the firmament of heaven, etc. " ' And again: "And God made two great lights... and the stars also". Not a word in all the Mosaic account of creation that can ...
112. Epilogue to Ramessides, Medes and Persians [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... for example that of Jesus in Matthew's Gospel, show the Babylonian Exile to be an event occurring in the mid-4th century, not the early 6th century, as "traditional" chronology insists. The same genealogy would place Abraham around 1,050 BC, in contrast to the traditional date of c.2 ,000 BC. In my Genesis of Israel and Egypt (1997) which may be regarded as the first volume of my own, smaller, "Ages in Chaos" series, I demonstrated in some detail how the Abraham legend referred to a migration from Mesopotamia to Egypt at the very dawn of civilisation, and that "Abraham" is a contemporary of Menes, ...
113. Hatshepsut, The Queen of Sheba and Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... enough sport long pointed beards of a type worn in Egypt only by the pharaoh. (It should be noted also in this regard that the earliest Egyptian monarchy, the Horus kings of the First Dynasty, claimed to have originated in Punt and this incidentally provides yet another dramatic connection with Asia. David Rohl has illustrated (Legend: The Genesis of Civilisation, 1998) that the god Osiris, from whom the Egyptian royalty claimed descent, was not only specifically linked to Byblos but was himself in origin a Mesopotamian god named Asar. He shows too how the peoples of Lebanon also traced their origin back to Mesopotamia. [1 ] But where then do the negroes and African ...
114. Tower Myths (Moons, Myths and Man) [Books]
... with a nation's speech. The only interpretation which would justify the passage is, that the building of the conspicuous new landmark attracted a troop of scouting post diluvians of other descent' and other tongue. It was the clash of interests, and not the jarring of idioms, that caused the abandonment of the site. Anyhow, whatever else Genesis xi. 1- 9 may tell us, we learn that one of the first acts of settlement was the building of a sacred tower. The Bible story is only the report of one wave of emigrants down from the mountain refuge, as is specially stressed by the passage describing their movements: And it came to pass, as the ...
115. Evidence of the Prophets and Egypt [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... country of Lydia. Thus the Meshwesh kings were Mysian or Lydian kings from Libya ruling in Egypt. The Lydians or Ludim are mentioned in alliance with Egypt only in the time of Nebuchadrezzar in the Bible, in Jeremiah 46:9 and Ezekiel 30:5 . There was also a tribe of Egyptians called the Ludim (Genesis 10:13; 1 Chronicles 1:11). Sardis was also a Lydian city, and the Sherden, who served Ramesses II and are generally identified as Sardinians, were derived from there by Velikovsky.  Confirmation of this view is found in Strabo, who states that "the Sardians or Sardinians of the western ...
116. Philistia Ascendant [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Sanders asks: "Will no one scream the question- why sea captains of a supposedly seafaring nation would disembark and inhabit a land without either a natural harbor or a decent port?" The answer, in a nutshell, is "any port in a storm!" In the time of Abraham and Isaac, Philistines ruled Gerar (Genesis 21:22, 26:1 ), a city in southern Canaan, near Gaza, which later became one of the five principal cities of Philistia. It is unclear how long the Philistines had occupied Gerar, but it was not their place of origin. The Bible states that they came from Caphtor (1 Chronicles 1: ...
117. Remembering Velikovsky [Journals] [Aeon]
... inherited. In the following years, I devoured all of Velikovsky's published works and, in 1972, I wrote a letter to Velikovsky which started a brief and scattered but memorable correspondence. One point in that correspondence deserves particular mention. At the end of 1972, I wrote to Velikovsky, asking him how he interpreted the mysterious passage in Genesis 6:1-4, which has a brief mention concerning the Sons of God marrying the Daughters of Men. Mainstream Jewish and Christian religious scholars, embarrassed by the echoes of paganism contained in that passage, largely deny that "Sons of God" means angels, although the term does carry that meaning elsewhere in the Hebrew Bible. What ...

119. A Comprehensive Theory on Aging, Gigantism and Longevity [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ancient gigantism and the sequential abatement that followed. II. Longevity and its Abatement Having examined the fossil record and having reasons to question its classical construction, we shall now look into another issue- prehistoric longevity. We will examine in the ancient Hebrew writings some striking parallels to fossil and biological size abatement. We begin with the Book of Genesis. Here Moses recorded the age of about ten ante-diluvian patriarchs as being mostly in the range of 900 years. Typically this is dismissed incredulously on rather casual grounds, considering our current age levels circa 75 years, plus or minus 25. One somewhat common conjecture is that Moses and his contemporaries perhaps counted cycles of months rather than years ...
