41. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents The Genesis of Israel and Egypt by Emmett J. Sweeney Emmett Sweeney is a school teacher in London. His book The Genesis of Israel and Egypt has just been published (Janus, London, 1997, £6 .95) and he is also the author of The Lost History of Ireland: an enquiry into the pre-Christian History of the Gaels, (Grianan Press, Derry, 1992). Summary David Rohl's book and TV series A Test of Time', have publicised the New Chronology, which subtracts 2-300 years from pharaonic history to synchronise it with Israel's history. ...
42. The Great Flood -- General Remarks [Books]
... everything that had being was the Deluge. For a long time the Flood myths were regarded with suspicion by all the sciences concerned: chiefly hydrology, meteorology, geology: and even mythologists were guarded in their interpretations. Viewed from the scientific angle the case for a Great Flood, it is true, was definitely weak. If according to Genesis vii. I all the high hills, that were under the whole heaven, were covered, fifteen cubits upward', and if, as literalists would have it, these high hills' include Mount Everest, a pan-thalassa, or universal shore-less ocean, of a depth of more than five miles above the present sea-level would have lead ...
... many of my readers are willing to concede. Therefore, in order that it may not be said that I place undue value upon any evidence herein advanced, I will put these writings for the time being on the same level with profane history, however my inclination rebels at the thought. Such evidence, then, as I glean from Genesis, will in this argument be of the same value as it would be if found in the writings of Pliny, Tacitus or Herodotus. The question now to be considered is: Did any part of the annular matter continue to revolve about the earth until after man came upon it? If I succeed in showing that some of those ...
44. Darkness and the Deep [Journals] [Aeon]
... implication here is that this nebular cloud was spun off by the rotating Saturnian body out of which the solitary god- i.e . Saturn- slowly emerged into view. 4. Tohu Wa Bohu The father of all creation myths, at least in the Western World, is that contained in the very first chapter of the Book of Genesis. It is there stated that: In [the] beginning Elohim created the shemayim and eretz. And eretz was tohu wa bohu, and darkness was on the surface of the tehom. And the ruach of Elohim moved upon the face of the mayim. (37) Elohim (El and/or Eloah), as I ...
45. Five Midianite Cities: A Response to Dwardu Cardona's "The Cities of the Plain" [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... and Ancient History VII:2 (July 1985) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Five Midianite Cities: A Response to Dwardu Cardona's "The Cities of the Plain"Stan F. Vaninger Mr. Cardona has sought to defend a synchronism first suggested by Velikovsky in the late 1950's: that the destruction of the cities of the plain recorded in Genesis 19 occurred at the end of Early Bronze III. [1 ] Closely associated with this synchronism is the identification of the five sites presently being excavated by Rast and Schaub as being the cities of the plain. [2 ] Taken by itself, the synchronism (and its associated identification) has much to commend it and it is ...
46. The Dating of Hammurabi [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of Babylon; Hammurabi overthrew Zimri-Lim and destroyed Mari. The conclusion then was that Hammurabi was also a contemporary of David. The idea was never expanded much beyond this point, nor were the ramifications upon Sumerian times of such a possibility published. The problem is that Hammurabi was considered by some historians to have been the king of Shinar of Genesis 14, whose name was Amraphel. In the biblical account Amraphel, in alliance with three other kings, Chedorlaomer king of Elam, Arioch of Ellasar, and Tidal king of nations, invades Canaan and holds the land in subjection for twelve years. Because of the resemblance of his name to that of Amraphel, some writers call Hammurabi ...
47. The Prophecy In Paleontology [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... religion regarding the shaping of the earth should be addressed. Science and the Bible are not as mutually contradictory as is often supposed. The most notorious case of a purported clash between the Bible and science is over the nature of the creation of the earth and of the life upon it. Thus the story presented in the first chapter of Genesis for the creation of the world has been explained as a myth. Robert Graves maintained that the creation on each day was related to the god honored traditionally on that day. Hence light was said to have been created on the first day because Sunday was holy to the sun god; the sea on the second day because Monday was ...
48. Untitled [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the Plain" were high in the hills, as the Early Bronze Age ruins of Bab edh-Dhra and its environs are. Cardona's claim that the Hebrew word "kikkar" translated "plain" in the King James version has a "topographical meaning which is not easily translatable" is utterly false. Every serious modern translation of the Book of Genesis, without exception, uses this term, or one which means the same thing. Every major classical Jewish commentator on Genesis takes "kikkar" to mean "plain." Furthermore, there is not a single reference in Midrashic literature which supports Mr. Cardona's original (because entirely fictional) claim that it means "ring" or ...
49. Keeper of Genesis by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents Keeper of Genesis by Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock (Heinemann, London, 1996) Keeper of Genesis was written as a collaborative effort by engineer Robert Bauval, author of The Orion Mystery, and journalist Graham Hancock, who wrote Fingerprints of the Gods. In general, Keeper of Genesis continues the arguments of the previous books, after a substantial amount of duplication (partially justifiable to set the scene but considerably overdone) and it has similar virtues and vices. Its main virtue is a highly readable marshalling of evidence to support a challenging hypothesis that civilisation has a much longer history ...
50. The Chronology of Israel and Judah Part IId [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... :17 that the law was given in Sinai 430 years after the promises were made to Abram/Abraham (1922-1492 B.C .) . Exodus 12:40-41 says that "the sojourning of the children of Israel, who dwelt in Egypt, had been 430 years" to "the selfsame day."  In Genesis 15:14 Abram was told "that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict them four hundred years." This 400-year period would begin with the birth of Isaac, "thy seed," when Abraham was 100 years old (1892 B. ...
