201. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... while Rehoboam, who suddenly found himself confined to a small kingdom surrounded by enemies on all sides, built fortifications in the existing border cities and provided them with victuals, put garrisons into them and did everything to enable them to withstand an onslaught by an invader and a prolonged siege. The name of Rameses appears first in the book of Genesis. According to Genesis 47:11: "Joseph placed his father and his brethren, and gave them a possession in the land of Egypt, in the the best of the land, in the land of Rameses, as Pharaoh had commanded." Rameses was a border district in the eastern Delta, called after and holy to ...

... 83-4; 38:40-43). Some held that he was a Rumi, an Edomite, living in the time of Lot, Abraham, Jacob or Ephraim, his wife being the daughter of Jacob. (While the Arabic tradition wrongly assumes this to be Leah, this identification as a daughter of Jacob tallies with that of the Tractate Genesis Rabbah 57:4 .) All these traditions, however variant, nevertheless place Job in the period before the Exodus. So the historical Job almost certainly lived in pre-Exodus times, somewhere between the 18th and 15th centuries BC. As we shall see, abundant and unambiguous motifs in the book of Job point to a very early, ...

... part of the nature of the universe. ' If so, where is the logic in believing what can happen to a man or to a tree cannot happen to a planet? Were the ancients right all along? I am not thinking of only the obvious - sudden and violent death is part of the nature of the universe. ' Genesis Rabba, a midrash (or exposition) on the Book of Genesis from fifth-century Palestine, which says: In the beginning God created numerous worlds, destroying one after the other as they failed to satisfy Him. All were inhabited by man, a thousand generations of whom He cut off, leaving no record of them. ' I ...

... result of incessant competition and struggle for survival, all the way from the simplest forms to Homo sapiens and other advanced organisms, an enormous span of time is required. The teaching of catastrophes appeared to make the story of the world very short: if the Deluge occurred less than five thousand years ago, then, following the book of Genesis, Creation took place less than six thousand years ago. In order to have at the disposal of the evolutionary process the almost unlimited time needed, Darwin accepted Lyell's teaching; and whereas Lyell tried to show that the usual agents, such as rivers carrying sediment, act with comparative speed, Darwin liked to stress their sluggishness. He ...

205. Mediterranean Basin Catastrophe [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Malta's SW coast. The Mediterranean consisted of only two or perhaps three fresh-water lakes, one in the east in the Ionian and Herodotus Abyssal Plains, and another one or two in the western basin of the Sardinian and Balearic Abyssal Plain. What today is the Strait of Gibraltar was in those days an isthmus, from which, according to Genesis (7 :11) flowed down streams of water that percolated through the isthmus crevices, with the Atlantic (in Genesis called "The Great Deep") about 2000 meters above the Mediterranean depression. A large earthquake then caused a rift valley that made the Gibraltar isthmus to subside, continuing the rift along the Algerian Basin, the ...

... . 240). Lailah is of course the Hebrew word for night, and it suggests to me that there are two traditions to this legend, one involving divine light and the other the power of darkness. The legend quoted refers to the military victory of Abraham and allies over the four kings of Shinar and the rescue of Lot (Genesis 14:14-16). Now I concede that there might be two stories of the "deliverance of Lot" and that one tradition has it that it was a divine deliverance by angels (at Sodom - Genesis 19) and the other a military one by Abraham. But there the similarities end, in terms of geography, the ...

... of sufficient height. A small subdivision of the mountain-refuge myths is the class of stories which allows the ancestor to climb a high tree. Men and beasts that were unable either to climb to safety, or to take passage into the New Age in an ark, perished in the waters. The best known of ark myths is that in Genesis vi. 14 -16, in which God says to Noah: Make thee an ark of gopher wood; rooms thou shalt make in the ark, and shalt pitch it within and without with pitch. . . . The length of the ark shall be three hundred cubits, the breadth of it fifty cubits, and the height of ...

... the borders of the Philistine lands. Gezer only came into Israelite hands when it was burned by Pharaoh Shishak and given to Solomon as part of his daughter's dowry [12]. Although outside the remit of this paper, we should just mention that it is our belief that the so-called anachronistic biblical references to Philistines, the Hebrew Pelishtim [Genesis 26:1-16 & 21:32-34, Exodus 13:17 etc.], which pre-date the Sea Peoples invasions of the Levant, could, within this new scheme, still be historically valid. Any chronology which places the Exodus and Conquest around the traditional biblical date of 1450/1410 BC will require a re-identification of the cultural ...

... "by the incantation [i .e ., speech] of Enki and Enlil" (two competing figures of the single creator). To my knowledge, such close parallels between the Egyptian and Mesopotamian creation accounts have never received adequate attention by comparative mythologists. The blossoming chamber of the Sumerian creation also finds a counterpart in a Hawaiian genesis myth, reproduced by Leinani Melville: Man descended from the Sacred Shrine of The King who created the heavens. The Shrine of the King of Heaven who caused that distant realm to bloom and flower: The Consecrated Realm of Teave, the World of Teave. (19) Both the Hawaiian and Sumerian sources place the genesis of the ...

... other and the scheme depicted in Fig. 3 has been proposed. Fig. 3 E0 nebulae are symmetrical, the eccentricity and flattening increasing in the direction of the upper arrow in; the structure becomes more and more loose in this direction, and finally breaks into the two branches of spiral and barred nebulae. Some authorities believe that the genesis of nebulae is proceeding in the direction of the upper arrow and others in the direction of the lower one. The important point here is simply that these genetic relationships would appear from geometrical considerations alone to require not merely a few but even billions to trillions or more rotations in which one system passes smoothly into another as the result of ...
