161. The Nature of the Historical Record [Journals] [SIS Review]
... fair degree of continuity between modern and medieval history. Elizabeth II can trace her lineage back to Egbert, who became king of Wessex in 802 AD. Notwithstanding the "dark age" in Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire in the West and the barbarian and Mohammedan invasions, medieval Christian civilisation was firmly rooted in the amalgam of Greek, Roman and Hebrew cultural, religious, legal and political traditions which survived, more or less intact, from the "universal" Roman Empire. The literary part of this heritage comprised the Old and New Testaments and enough of the works of the most important Greek and Latin authors to provide at least an outline, and sometimes even ...

They heard some one speaking on the top of the pillar in a loud clear glad voice, but knew not what he said, nor in what tongue he spoke.22 This is doubtless too the ancient lofty boreal column of the Greek geographers, in the land of the Celts, and the significance of the octagonal form has been shown in " The Number Eight." See also the octagonal Japanese spear. Wei-kan, writes Mr. A. R. Colquhoun,23 is the name given in S.W . China to wooden or stone pillars erected to the ...

163. The Oracle of Cadmus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... may have been King Nikmed of Ugarit, who lived in the days of the El-Amarna correspondence, applied cuneiform to the Hebrew alphabet, made of cuneiform an alphabetic writing, and, together with the Ionians, was expelled from his city by Assyrian conquerors and fled by sea. Cadmus introduced the Hebrew alphabet into Greece and applied it to the Greek language. King Nikrned had an Egyptian princess as his wife; and the legend has it that Cadmus brought with him a wife named Sphinx.[2 ] In the Oedipus legend the monster Sphinx guards the city of Seven-Gated Thebes in Boeotia. Velikovsky has brilliantly established the historical basis for the story in "Hundred-Gated Thebes," capital ...

... statements would be made of the now-distant Saturn seems unthinkable. Rather, this is the very language one would expect in descriptions of the "sun" in ancient hymns. (5 ) The Babylonian sun god is Shamash, and Babylonian astronomical texts say in unequivocal terms: "The planet Saturn is Shamash." (6 ) Thus the Greek historian Diodorus reports that Babylonian astronomers knew the planet Saturn as the star of the "sun" (Helios). (7 ) Though early Egyptian sources do not offer a formal astronomy to directly connect their gods with planets, (8 ) a later Egyptian ostrakon cited by Franz Boll identifies the sun god Ra as the Greek Kronos ...

... may always be right, for Thou knowest we will never change our minds. Old Scottish Prayer- THE MYTH OF THE UNIVERSAL MONARCH (3 ) By David Talbott ( In exploring ancient images of the Universal Monarch, we now enter the realm of classical thought. Our own civilization owes its greatest debt to Greek and Latin poets, philosophers and historians, who received and interpreted countless mythical traditions of nations throughout the Mediterranean and beyond, often drawing on literary sources that were later lost and are now unavailable to us. According to the Greek poet Hesiod, the present age is but a shadow of a former epoch- called the Golden Age of Kronos ...

166. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Near East was destroyed around 1200 BC, including those of Palestine, Syria, Anatolia, Cyprus and Greece. These destructions are regularly attributed to the so-called "Sea Peoples" of the records of Ramesses III. The "Sea Peoples" movement supposedly had its origins in Europe, where pressures to the north drove the Dorians into the Greek peninsula. The Dorians, in turn, destroyed the Mycenaean civilisation of Greece, and driving out its inhabitants they initiated further folk-movements away from the Aegean. A motley crew of displaced Aegeans, including a mixture of northern barbarians, swept across Anatolia and through the Levant, finally being stopped at the gates of Egypt by Ramesses III. ...

A.E . Samuel, Greek and Roman Chronology, (Munich 1972) p.21, says, ". .. We have long lived with the cliche that the Greeks learned their astronomy from the Babylonians, but modern investigation has demonstrated that the sophisticated Babylonian systems were later than had hitherto been believed. The irregular intercalations [of adding days or months to ...

... to spatters of viscous liquid, I have named them spatters. However, their origin is in the heavens, not on earth. In fig. 12, all kinds of them, many like fireworks, appear scattered over a plate from Rhodes depicting a scene from the Trojan War. In fig. 13 they are scattered over an early Greek burial krater. They are so common in ancient Greek art that art historians dismiss them and similar elements as mere clutter, fillers of empty space. However they are not only native to Greek art; they appear in all places and times. In fig. 14 they appear in the sky over the roof above the tomb of Christ ...

169. Scarab in the Dust: Egypt in the Time of the Twenty-First Dynasty [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... negates Velikovsky's 400 B.C . placement for Ramses III, over 250 years after Ramses III's time, and also throws doubt on Clapham's (and Courville's) c. 715-685 B.C . dates for him, contemporaneous with the Libyans. On my 750-720 dates, however, there is no problem. Isaacson has also observed that the Greek letters on the back of the Ramses III tiles, adduced by Velikovsky as evidence of the pharaoh's 400 B.C . date, in fact belong to Ptolemaic times, c. 150 B.C ., and would therefore have been put there when the tiles were "recycled" in a building renovation for a high priest of ...

170. Is the Tribe of Dan Homer's Danaanians? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... King Hiram of Tyre to build the holy Temple, Hiram sent an architect (also named Hiram) who was half Danite and half Tyrian. The last story to help reconstruct the tribe's activities is Ezekiel's message about the fall of Tyre. Describing Tyre's trading partners, Ezekiel in one verse links Dan with Javan. The Javan are definitely Ionian Greeks, and we will see that Danites in fact lived in Greece with the Ionians. A Few Way-Marks on the Way to Greece We first stop at Ugarit, an ancient Phoenician seaport near the present Syrian-Turkish border. The Arabic name for Ugarit is Ras Shamra. Schaeffer excavated the site and found many texts; one of the most important ...
