181. Review: <i>Essays on the Patriarchal Narratives</i> by A.R. Millard and D. J. Wiseman, Eds [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... has produced a fine piece, "Abraham Reassessed." This is for the most part derived from a series of articles he developed in Bibliotheca Sacra (April-June 1977 and following). Here he deals with Abraham as a Hebrew, a prince, a nomad, a father, and some other aspects of his life in the context of Genesis and the second millennium. On the whole it is a very fine contribution from a prominent Assyriologist. The second -article we wish to discuss is by J. J. Bimson, a research worker in the Department of Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield. He is the author of the published thesis, Redating the Exodus and the Conquest ...
182. A Note on the Patten Aging Theory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Russian study (International Aerospace Abstracts #A77-50922) has shown that even minute amounts of microwave radiation are sufficient to cause significant changes in the harmonal activity of rats. (One wonders if their study of the effect on humans isn't being performed at the U.S . Embassy in Moscow.) There are suggestions in the ninth chapter of Genesis that Noah had his first experience with fermented wine following the Flood. I am not well versed on what is necessary for fermentation but I have seen references to such factors as radiation, oxygen, and barometric pressure. This remains an area for investigation. One would suspect that with higher carbon dioxide and the associated lush vegetation exhaling oxygen ...
183. Dance of the Planets [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... we call the Vedic period occurred only some six thousand years ago. At that date the Earth was laid waste by two close encounters of the flaming proto-Venus, and millions of Neolithic hominids, which lacked the intelligence and capability of articulated speech of Homo Sapiens Sapiens, were killed. It was the aftermath of that destruction that is described in Genesis as ". .. and the Earth was void and without form .. ." . Soon after this Mars was impelled by proto-Venus into an orbit that brought it close to the Earth, initiating a long series of dance encounters'. It was only at that time that ". .. the gods created man in their ...
184. Moses Pharaoh of Egypt - the mystery of Akhenaten resolved [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... area would mean that the ensuing Exodus, if a direct route for Sinai was taken, would lead straight across the Red Sea. A major criticism of Osman's scenario concerns the impossibility of accepting such a short sojourn of the Israelites in Egypt from the time of Thutmose IV until the Exodus under Moses/Akhenaten. The famous 400 years of Genesis 15:13 and the 430 years of Exodus 12:40 constitutes a serious problem for anyone who insists on attaching importance to figures quoted in any ancient literature. It seems sensible, as a general rule, to adopt the principle that where figures are quoted in ancient literature, whether in the Bible, Herodotus or elsewhere, and ...
185. The Spring Of Ares [Journals] [Kronos]
... and others.(15) The persistence of this bizarre trait in the cultus of Mars is even reflected in the modern Mars Hill College. Ancient Hebrew tradition also appears to have preserved a memory of the hill of Mars in Mount Mamre, a name which cannot help but recall that of Mars/Mamer(s ). According to Genesis, it was on the site of Mamre that Abraham established his dwelling, in the form of a tent.(16) The site of Mamre was also renowned in Hebrew tradition because of a mysterious oak tree (or grove) which was said to grow there, a tree which scholars have recognized as being, in some sense ...
186. Jerusalem -- City of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... and the offspring of David, the bright morning star." -Revelation 22: 16 JERUSALEM THE HOLY Of all the cities of the world, Rome included, none has evoked, through millennia of time, the sustained sense of holiness affiliated with Jerusalem. Already in pre-Israelite days, Melchizedek, "priest of the Most High God" (Genesis 14:18) held sway over the site; and later on, the ritualistic actions of Hebrew Kings, Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus, and Moslem tradition all served to reinforce, intensify, and perpetuate the sanctity of the city. Today, "Jerusalem is embedded in the memory and hopes of a world. Its ...
187. Myth and Method [Journals] [SIS Review]
... - with alterations - to a Jupiter-deity. Scholars can often identify such myths. In cases where ambiguity in the denotation of a cosmogonic agent name is suspected the text should be analysed in the light of the textual groups of the relevant cosmogonic events; cosmogonic activity is the best criterion for identification. Certain Velikovskian scholars have expended considerable energy on Genesis 1:16 in attempts to find an unconventional identification for the body set to govern the night; inasmuch as no cosmogonic activity is ascribed to the body, their energy is likely to be wasted (If vv 1-4 refer to the Deluge, they may be the only cosmogonically significant element of Genesis I.) The cosmogonic activity criterion ...
188. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... as a crescent. In the Golden Age of Saturn, myths state that the planets were in one line, on the same axis in a great conjunction. Jupiter would have been invisible beyond Saturn and the others would be dots in Saturn's light. SATURDAY EVENING: EARL MILTON: Report on Halley's Comet. SUNDAY MORNING: BARRY FRANK: Genesis 1-6. The first (Hebrew) word "bereshith" means "when began". It is assumed that the reader already knows that God must have created everything.

190. Ancient Astronauts, Cosmic Collisions and Other Popular Theories about Man's Past (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... according to a number of Stiebing's lines of inquiry, is not very compelling. These as well as the absence of flood layers- and flood strata from different periods in Mesopotamia- make a universal flood difficult to maintain. The only area in which I found some reason to disagree with Stiebing was in his acceptance of two flood accounts in Genesis. While this may be true, it has not gone unquestioned by scholars- see W. H. Shea, "The Structure of the Genesis Flood Narrative and its Implications" (Origins, 6, 1979, 8ff.)- for his and other views in this regard. However, this does not principally detract from Stiebing's ...
