281. The Evolution of the Cosmogonic Egg [Journals] [Aeon]
... such as the Egyptian epact, consisting of a series of dies non, and coinciding with the end of the year and of longer cycles, which in turn consist of a number of years. (198) Thus, like the origin of Easter, the Jewish Passover, with which it is directly connected, also seems to owe its genesis to a Saturnian festival. Meanwhile, associated with the New Year, as with Easter, is the tradition in some countries to bestow colored eggs as gifts: In Persia, for instance, coloured eggs are the appropriate gifts for the New Year which, even to-day, is still called the Feast of Red Eggs. And the red ...
282. Introduction - Ages in Chaos? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... uncertain about the validity of Heinsohn's single-track approach, commenting that stratigraphy is not everything', yet he concluded that astronomical evidence was consistent with the Hammurabi-Darius I equation . In Britain, Emmet Sweeney developed his own ideas on the basis of Heinsohn's theories  and put some of them together in two short books, The Genesis of Israel and Egypt and The Pyramid Age, published in 1997 and 1999 (fig. 1; fig. 2). Sweeney did not believe that the pyramids of the Old Kingdom in Egypt could have survived intact through Velikovsky's'?Venus' catastrophe of 1450 BC and, indeed, apart from those of the 3rd Dynasty, ...
283. The Sun Of Night [Journals] [Kronos]
... we also believe that, even though it shone less brightly than the Sun- although more so than the Moon of later times(32)- Saturn appeared larger in the night sky than the Sun did during the day. A colleague of Jastrow, Professor J. A. Montgomery, has even raised "the interesting question whether in Genesis 1: 16 the two lights' may not at one time have referred to the Sun and Saturn ?" (33 ) This is an interesting supposition for, in the Biblical passage referred to, which supposedly describes the creation of Sun and Moon, neither Sun nor Moon is mentioned. The passage merely reads: "And God ...
284. F. X. Kugler -- Almost a Catastrophist [Journals] [SIS Review]
... he added (as a member of the Jesuit order) a direct and literal approach to the Bible. This is evident in his opening remarks: from the way he examines the development of the concept of "heavenly hosts", i.e armies of stars, it is clear that he considers the accepted arrangement of the story of Genesis to represent not only the sequence in which the book was written, but also the sequence in which the events recorded therein took place. Considerable doubt is now cast upon this interpretation, even assuming that researchers will accept the record as more than fantasy in the first place. To take an example, the Bible begins with a record ...
285. The Demands of the Saturnian Configuration Theory [Journals] [Aeon]
... over and over, in one record after another, from all corners of the world, we are told that, "in the beginning," there was no Sun, no Moon, no stars. The planetary god of beginnings, we are told ad nauseam, ruled alone and in darkness. Whether we turn to the pages of Genesis in the Old Testament or to the ancient Egyptian myths of creation, the message is always the same; whether we seek the first appearance of the Hebrew Elohim or that of the Egyptian Atum, it is always stated that the god existed alone in darkness. We find the same situation in the ancient texts of India, not only ...
286. From the Death of Isaac to the Exodus out of Egypt [Books]
... Joseph's second dream, which implied that his mother, who was then alive, as well as his father, should come and bow down to him, Josephus represents her here as still alive after she was dead, for the decorum of the dream that foretold it, as the interpretation of the dream does also in all our copies, Genesis 37:10. (2 ) The Septuagint have twenty pieces of gold; the Testament of Gad thirty; the Hebrew and Samaritan twenty of silver; and the vulgar Latin thirty. What was the true number and true sum cannot therefore now be known. (3 ) That is, bought it for Pharaoh at a very low ...
287. Noah's Vessel: 24,000 Deadweight Tons [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History XIV:1 (Jan 1992) Home | Issue Contents Noah's Vessel: 24,000 Deadweight Tons Samuel R. Windsor Introduction Throughout the last 4 ½ millennia, much has been written about Noah's Ark (Genesis), Nuh'un Gemisi (Turkish), the vessel of Utnapishtim (Assurbanipal's Epic of Gilgamesh), the vessel of Nu (Egyptian legend), the vessel built by Manu (Vedas of India), etc. Most books attempt to authenticate the various stories by comparison, religious faith, etc. No one has seriously evaluated Noah's Ark as a sea going barge. Such an examination is possible using the artifact measured dimensions published ...
288. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... reflection upon the record of the rocks and the evaluation of its interpretation by historical geologists. Repeated visits to the bottom of and across the Grand Canyon leading geology field trips, resulting in much observation at and in the canyon. The Creation record, especially as it is found in the Old Testament in Hebrew, having taught Hebrew inductively from Genesis 1-8 repeatedly. As I have come to understand more fully the explicit teaching of the Bible in its references to the creation and to the earlier centuries of our planet, I have come to recognize that, once the creationist recognizes what the Bible reveals about five great Biblical, catastrophic events, suddenly he is faced with the remarkable similarity ...

... with drunkenness, and both instructed the world in agriculture."(48) Like Saturn, the Babylonian flood hero, Xisuthros, would appear to represent another pagan parallel to Noah, a fact generally acknowledged by Biblical scholars.(49) The account of Xisuthros, as told by Berosus, contains numerous features reminiscent of the account in Genesis, one of the more striking of which concerns the origin of sacrificial rites. Here the reader will recall that immediately upon leaving the ark, "Noah built an altar to the Lord, and took of every clean animal and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar".(50) Likewise, upon ...
290. Night of the Gods: The Axis and the Universe-Tree [Books]
... a hawk, forcibly carries off the Soma from Swarga, the paradise, the lordship, of Indra, and also the supreme station of Vishnu on the summit of Mount Meru.4 But here soma must be a branch or portion of the heavenly tree and the hawk and soma are thus a clear parallel to the dove and olive-leaf of Genesis viii, 11. The Satapatha-brahmana 5 prescribed the brown-flowering phalguna plant as being akin to the soma-plant, in the absence of this the Syena-hrtra (falcon rapt) plant, or the adara, or the brown duba 6 (durva), or any kind of yellow kusa plants. But Dr. O. Schrader7 pronounces that all the ...
