101. Typhon and the Comet of the Exodus: Rockenbach's Lost Source [Journals] [Aeon]
... the early centuries of the Christian era. [6 ] So many ancient sources have, however, been lost that it is now difficult, if not impossible, to trace the origin of this report. When it next surfaces, we find it listed in a book on comets which was published in 1602 by Abraham Rockenbach, professor of Greek, mathematics, law, and philosophy. By then, some very interesting items had been added to the report: "In the year of the world two thousand four hundred and fifty three- as many trustworthy authors, on the basis of many conjectures, have determined- a comet appeared which Pliny also mentions in bk. 2 ...
102. The Disastrous Love Affair of Moon and Mars [Books] [de Grazia books]
... despite the encouragement coming from other quarters to publish it. I have indeed held it, to near the end of the Quantavolution Series, and release it now, benefited, I believe, by the amendments that my friends induced. Thanks on this occasion go also to professor William Mullen of St. John's College, whose advice extended from greek poetic meter to the full ancient oecumene; to Eugene Vanderpool of Athens, Greece, who was consistently sympathetic; to Dr. Elizabeth Chesley-Baity, who discussed with me the archaeoastronomical anthropology of dances, fire-rites, ballgames, and sword ceremonies; to the late Dr. Zvi Rix of Israel, whose enchanting letters on problems of mythology kept ...
103. The Rape of Helen [Books] [de Grazia books]
... upon both Trojans and Danaans by the plans of the Great Zeus."[1 ] The Iliad is sung as the wrath of Achilles on one level - the Poet says so - but is of a type with the battles of the sky gods recited in Scandinavian, Finnish, Hindu, Mexican, Babylonian, and other epics. The Greek gods of the Trojan Wars engage in plain soldiering, hurling rocks and spears, shooting arrows, and driving chariots. They make onslaughts from heaven; they launch disasters upon Earth: plagues, fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, hail of stones and arrows, famines, fogs, and darknesses in the day. The gods negotiate ...
104. Pygmalion, Prince of Tyre, and the el-Amarna Correspondence [Journals] [Kronos]
... less nebulous is the Pygmalion listed as a king of Tyre in the chronicles of the kings of that city written in a lost book by Menander of Ephesus. This author, we are assured by Josephus, used the royal records of the Tyrians.(7 ) The Cypriot prince appears to have been a son of Canaan also, though Greek writers invariably chose to call him and his Tyrian namesake "Phoenician". The Tyrian's place in history was established by the feat of his sister Elissa, more famous as Dido, who is purported to have founded the city of Carthage.(8 ) The regnal dates for Pygmalion are, therefore, fixed by the accepted date of ...
105. Myths of the Cataclysm Caused by the Breakdown of a Former Satellite (The Book of Revelation is History) [Books]
... the surface of the former satellite as they do that of our present moon. They are addressed as `yellow, flat, roundish, wick-lamps' (12b); the expression `candlesticks' is a glaring mistranslation, while the word `gold' only means `brilliantly yellow'. Wax-lights, candles, were not known to the Greeks, nor to the Semitic peoples of Asia Minor: only terracotta rush lamps. The word `seven' used here must be regarded as an `indefinite numeral', meaning `all that there were' (cf. p 21). Another, larger, but only partly lighted crater (or a partly submerged one comparable to ...
106. Matters Arising [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Workshop Vol 4 No 1 (Jul 1981) Home | Issue Contents Matters Arising Who was Apollo?In WORKSHOP 2:4 (April 1980) we published a letter from R. A. Herring on the subject of the identity of the god Apollo in Greek mythology. Mr Herring had visited many of the important Greek sites and had been struck by the fact that most of them owed their prominence to the cults of Athena and Apollo. He wrote: "Athena's role can be readily seen in the light of Velikovsky, but Apollo remains an enigma. Accepting the premise that the major gods have an astronomical origin, Apollo's usual explanation of being a ...
107. Freud and Velikovsky Part I [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... by blind theologians and statesmen, wavering and despairing, increasingly confident that doomsday was reddening for the "People of the Book." Acquaintances of the Freud family could estimate the direction of that influence by the Christian names and early education he gave his sons, and the fact that two of his grandsons had been named after Lucian, the Greek mocker of religion, and Clemens, the Roman nobleman alleged to have been a convert to Christianity, who died in the downfall of the Flavian dynasty in 96. For what reason did Freud speed the publication of his odd theory that Moses had been an Egyptian priest or aristocrat who strove to impose his foreign creed and dictatorship on barbaric ...
108. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... to Inanna are not well understood. Riddles: The founders of the advanced culture, known today as the "Sumerians," were unknown to even the most learned scholars of antiquity. For them the Egyptian civilization was older than that of southern Mesopotamia, whose people were called Kasdim, Kaldu, or Chaldaeans by the Hebrews, Assyrians and Greeks respectively. The pyramids, whose construction is today ascribed to the so-called "early bronze age" culture in Egypt, were built of granite, quartz, basalt and diorite, materials that cannot be worked effectively without iron tools. In the earliest consecutive history of Egypt, that of Herodotus, the pyramids are said to have been built ...
109. Ancient History Revisions: the Last 25 years - a Perspective [Journals] [SIS Review]
... early archaeological reports, that this had led to many bitter chronological disputes between famous archaeologists, some of which remain unresolved today. Pottery from Mycenae in Greece was found in Egypt in association with Dynasty XVIII kings, so the start of the Mycenaean era was dated to around 1400BC. This was some 500 years earlier than implied by the early Greek and Roman historians. Yet their work had been studied and accepted by the world's leading scholars for over 2,000 years. When the Mycenaean era was pushed back some 500 years, an occupation gap between the end of the Mycenaean Age (about 15th-13th century BC) and the 9th century appeared in countries all round Egypt. This ...
110. When Was The iliad Created?, Part 2 Mars Ch.3 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... has not been established at what date the Iliad and Odyssey were composed. Even ancient authors differed greatly in reckoning the time when Homer lived. It was estimated to be as late as -685 (the historian Theopompus) and as early as -1159 (certain authorities quoted by Philostratus). Herodotus wrote that "Homer and Hesiod" created the Greek pantheon "not more than 400 years before me," which would mean not prior to -884, -484 being regarded as the year of Herodotus' birth. The question is still debated. Some authors argue that there was a long interval between the time when the epic works of Homer were composed and the time when they were put ...
