62. The Genesis of Israel and Egypt by Emmett Sweeney [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1997:1 (Oct 1997) Home | Issue Contents REVIEWS The Genesis of Israel and Egypt by Emmett Sweeney (Janus, London, 1997, £6 .95, ISBN: 1 85756 350 6) Summary The book The Genesis of Israel and Egypt was introduced and summarised by its author, Emmett Sweeney, in C&CR 1996:2 [1 ], so my own summary of it will be fairly brief. The introduction sets the scene, citing the repeated failure of historians through the ages to identify, from Egyptian hieroglyphic sources, Biblical characters who were associated with Egypt. Thus the giants among the ancient Hebrews ...

64. The Origin of Mankind [Books]
... certainly significant, example is probably that of the most authoritative and otherwise rather advanced religious belief of our times. In the first chapter, of the first section of the Holy Book of the Jews (cum-Christians) is found the magnificent statement that after the great cosmic cataclysm had abated God gave life to human beings, male arid female (Genesis i. 2f f., iterated in Genesis v. 2). In either of its two literary fortes, that of the wonderfully factual First Creation Account, or that of the more general Second Creation Account, we have found it to mean that among the living beings which survived the cataclysm in the area covered by the original ...
65. The Catastrophic Substructure of the Samson & Delilah Myth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Bible is a later monotheised version of earlier pagan mythologies culled from such sources as ancient Greece, Mesopotamia, Persia and Egypt. We are indebted to Robert Graves and Raphael Patai among others for disclosing the vestiges of these earlier mythologies in their book Hebrew Myths'. Most biblical scholars emphasise Mesopotamia as being the main source of the early Genesis myths' but there are perhaps one or two exceptions to this, notably A. S. Yahude who published a book called The Accuracy of the Bible' In 1934 in which he maintained that Egypt is the principle source for the Genesis material. The writer would be interested to hear from anyone in the Society who is familiar with ...
66. The Hebrew Patriarchs in Greek Tradition (Part I) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Niobe telling us that her father fell incestuously in love with her and when she repulsed him, burned her children to death'  LOT took part in an incestuous relationship with two of his daughters, at the instigation of the eldest. The result was that both the daughters of Lot were with child by their father' [Genesis 20:36] NIOBE displeased some of the Gods. Apollo the Sun-God and Artemis the Moon-Goddess arrived to wreak vengeance. Using fiery darts and arrows, they slew either some or all of her children. Some say two survived. Niobe, witnessing their deaths, suffered such emotional agony that Zeus, to save her from herself, ...
... was furthermore the personification of the chthonic forces which as yet slept, but were eager to be released. The fashioning of the Earth out of a primeval serpent's carcass seems to have been a general myth of the primitive Semitic peoples. As such it should be the original form of the creation story of the Jews. The opening verses of Genesis would seem to contradict this. But we must not forget that the report in Genesis has only come down to us in its sublimated- and therefore, from the mythologist's standpoint, very unoriginal, not to say corrupted- form. Nevertheless, if we listen carefully to the Hebrew wording of the first verses of Genesis, we still find traces ...
68. The Electrical God [Books] [de Grazia books]
... has appeared [4 ]. There is some likelihood, however, that Moses derived the name from the Midianites or another tribe thereabouts when he was in exile. Buber, for instance, says that Yahweh may be related to "Ya-hu," that is "O He!" of the Dervishes and that this cry occurs once in Genesis during the blessings of Jacob [5 ]. The name is not foreign to Genesis; Abraham uses it, but more commonly used is Elohim, and most likely, Yahweh was implanted in the Book of Genesis by Moses or Yahwist editors [6 ]. A suggestion can be made that would lend integrity to such an assertion. ...
69. The Primordial Light? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Anu and Ouranos were both lone planetary deities, although their names translate literally as "heaven" (36). In this context, it is worth referring to the Creation Myths and the known similarity between those of the Egyptians, Sumerians and Hebrews (37). "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth" (Genesis 1:1 ). Atum was the creator of Shu and Tefnut, who in turn gave rise to Nut and Geb: - literally "heaven" and "earth" (38). An and Ki are similarly created in the Sumerian myths. Now An = heaven and Ki = earth (39). There are indications ...
70. Venus Before Exodus [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the Southern Ghor, here [see map] at the southeastern end of the Dead Sea. Incidentally, Ghor is an Arabic word for a flat area. Rast and Shaub think they have come up with the Biblical five cities of the plain, that is: Sodom, Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboiim, and Bella or Zoar (of Genesis 14). Their conviction is supported by reference to one of these sites, the middle one, Safi, with Zoar on a 6th century Byzantine mosaic map, the Madaba map. So... if these are the five cities of the plain and they too perished in fire at the end of the Early ...
