141. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... A SLOW START, perhaps, but then if we start small, we can only get bigger... This is your column: your letters are invited. Joseph and the Pyramids MY MAIN INTEREST in Velikovsky is as a student of Scripture and on this score I would like to put forward one or two thoughts concerning the record in Genesis which seem to me to affect both the revised chronology and the idea of catastrophes. A considerable part of Genesis is given to the recording of the story of Joseph. The basic facts are these: 1. Pharaoh had a dream which was interpreted for him by Joseph as being a fore-warning of a coming famine. Before the famine ...
... the lack of centrifugal force began its decent at the poles. This theory explains certain phenomena better than any other yet advanced by scientists. It accounts for the uplift of mountains ; the deposit of coal and other minerals ; the glacial age ; the retardation of the moon, and it alone explains much contained in the first eight chapters of Genesis. Prof. Vail has published a volume of about 400 pages on this subject, which for clearness of statement and logical conclusions has seldom been equaled by previous writers on scientific subjects. He deals in convincing facts which are destined to overturn many pre-conceived theories in the science of geology. My object in sending forth this pamphlet is to ...

... may have been a designation for the axis mundi, comparable with the "tower of Uranus," the "tower of Kronos," and the "tower of Jupiter," which was identified by Pythagoras as the middle of the creation. See Pythagoras, in Proclus, in Timaeus, III, in G. Massey, The natural genesis, Vol. II (London, 1883), p. 58.  A. Jeremias, Handbuch der altorientalischen Geisteskultur, (Leipzig, 1913), p. 195.

144. The Misread Record by Isaac Vail [Books]
... forgotten one. Plainly the ancient Hebrews had the same heaven that the ancient Greeks, Hindus, and Japanese had. If the latter had a water heaven so had the former, and it now falls fittingly in place to examine some of the old Hebrew records. The Shamayim Of Heaven. The very first sentence of the first chapter of Genesis says: "In the beginning the Elohirn created the Heavens and the Earth," and again we are told in the firth and sixth verses that the Biohim made an expanse, or firmament, and "called the firmament Heaven", and placed it "in the midst of the waters". I presume a person of the ...
145. The Biblical 40-Years Periods [Journals] [SIS Review]
... generation An earlier Biblical scholar, Knig [3 ] expressed the view that the number 40 should not be taken literally. In his lengthy discussion he made many interesting points, a few of which are summarised below. He states that 40 serves as a round' number, citing many Biblical references. He notes 3 times 40 occurs in Genesis 6:3 ( .. . and his days shall be 120yrs) and Exodus 7:7 (the life of Moses). He cites the further reigns and other periods of 40yr and notes that 40 is used in other instances with surprising frequency. In II Sam 15:7 , 40yr (re Absalom's conspiracy) is ...
146. Scientific Prehistory [Books]
... dating calibrated by GA-dating. Imhotep was the designer of the "Step Pyramid", the first of the pyramids of Egypt. Breasted also gave Imhotep credit for remarkably modern' architectural designs". This might well fit the character of Joseph as given in the Bible. It is consistent also in the name as being associated with Goshon by Genesis 15:13 is prophecy that the Israelites would be in bondage in Egypt 400 years, but Exodus 20:40-42 is history showing the Israelites were in Egypt 430 years, including 20 years before Jacob's death. Jacob was buried in Palestine in a Pharaoh-honored funeral procession evidently of great splendor. Just ten years later, still many years ...
147. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... of circular movements (around the sun) and of a limited universe bounded by the sphere of the fixed stars. The opposition to Copernicus was determined by the realization that by giving mathematical structure to the heliocentric theory he lent support to the subversion of metaphysics that had been associated with it by Nicholas of Cusa. Questioning of the text of Genesis began as a result of the Copernican theory: if the Earth is nothing but a planet revolving around the Sun, one may doubt that its creation was the result of a providential dispensation. A son-in-law of Osiander, the editor of Copernicus, uttered the first frank challenge to the divine authority of the biblical narrative: neque mihi quisquam ...
148. David, Solomon & Archaeology: Revised Chronologies Compared [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... 3rd descendent of Shem/6th ancestor of Abraham) from early 12th'/early 10th century sea-borne raiders. This dating also ties in nicely with generally accepted (and plausible) evidence  that Solomon's ally, Hiram I, suppressed a revolt at Kition early in his reign. An equally surprising apparent Sea People reference occurs in Genesis 9:27: 26 And he said, "Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant 27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant". One problem with this much-debated passage is that v. 26 points to a United ...
149. Angel & Catastrophism Part II [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Later still, the plural Elohim' is considered to be merely a form of the familiar Royal We' but this explanation must surely be seen as a sure example of putting the cart before the horse' so to speak. The only satisfactory explanation of this plurality is to attribute its origin to the pre-Israelite sources from which the Book of Genesis was culled and monotheised. It may of course be argued quite simply that the truth about the recorded appearance of angels is manifest in the opening paragraph of this article in which the Church defines that in the beginning, God created pure spirits together with his creation of the material world and these angels' are indeed empowered to embody themselves ...
150. The Periodic Cyclicism Of Ancient Catastrophes [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... then (being coplanar) it would also have to cross the Earth's orbit a second time, when approaching perihelion. 56 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. V, No. 1 Only once in ancient Hebrew literature is there a calendared date given for the onset of a catastrophe, and that happens to be the worst of the catastrophes, Noah's Flood. Genesis XI indicates that date was the 17th day of the second month. What day was that? Throughout the ancient Near East and Middle East, the "Tishri Calendar" was used. Tishri was the first month, and the first day of Tishri was the new moon of September when the old 360-day calendar was functioning. New Year's ...
