61. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 1 [Books]
... our Jewish nation is of very great antiquity, and had a distinct subsistence of its own originally; as also, I have therein declared how we came to inhabit this country wherein we now live. Those Antiquities contain the history of five thousand years, and are taken out of our sacred books, but are translated by me into the Greek tongue. However, since I observe a considerable number of people giving ear to the reproaches that are laid against us by those who bear ill-will to us, and will not believe what I have written concerning the antiquity of our nation, while they take it for a plain sign that our nation is of a late date, because ...
62. In Defence of Higher Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Gunnar Heinsohn has recently identified the Assyrian kings known as the Sargonids - conventionally placed in the 8th and 7th centuries - with various Persian kings from the 5th and 4th centuries . This amounts to lowering Assyrian chronology by nearly three centuries. 2. Benny J. Peiser has recently tried to eliminate nearly two centuries of early Greek history, with a comparable lowering of the Mycenaean Age from where Velikovsky had it. Peiser puts the beginnings of Greek history in the early 6th century or so . Everything before that would be mythic', not historical. Thus Peiser argues against the historicity of the Olympic Era, said to have begun in -775. ...

As smaller tribes coalesced into ever bigger units, their traditions and deities underwent a repeated process of telescoping and superimposing. In these Notes I have tried to pick out and present all those traits of the mythological characters which refer to cosmic events, or to ...
64. The Egyptian Prince Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... nevertheless looms in the near background. The author of Jubilees claimed to be the Angel of Presence. But when we bring him down to a human level we find he was a contemporary of another Jew called Artapanus, who boldly stated that Moses was none other than Hermes, the great Egyptian intellectual who was so highly admired and honored by Greeks and Romans alike. Indeed, the ancient rabbis would have found Jews saying that if Moses as Hermes honored the "gods" of the Gentiles, then why could not we later Jews do the same? At any rate, the author of Jubilees, who represented himself as the Angel of Presence, built an impeccable image for Moses ...
65. The Etruscans and their Language [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... will start with words associated with the idea of kingship, which, in Mesopotamian usage, was sent down from heaven (the monarch took the hand of Bel'). There was a high ranking Etruscan official, whose title appears in various forms, including purt, and purth. The word is thought to mean the same as the Greek prytanis. The duties of the prytanis, originally performed by the king, were performed by the president of the city council in a Greek polis. When kingship was abolished, this title remained, as did his religious duty of tending the sacred fire in the tholos, the temple of Hestia (Latin Vesta'). The word ...
66. Problems for Rohl's New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... that numerous Heroic Age figures who lived before the Trojan War were said to have taken part in the Games, and one tradition stated that the festival was founded by Pelops, grandfather of Agamemnon? (Pausanias v, 8, 1, & vi, 20, 8) The Alphabet: 1. No scholar has yet claimed that the Greek alphabet predates c.800 BC, yet Herodotus tells us [5 , 59] that he saw a tripod in Thebes dedicated by Amphitryon and inscribed in Cadmean letters. The problem, of course, is that Amphitryon lived two or three generations before the Trojan War. 2. Epic tradition tells us that Palamedes, who fought at ...
67. Exodus Or Exile. Ch. 7. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... we have from this epoch. That the king chose a small clay tablet whereon to record his conquest of the Egyptian and Mediterranean alliance is most surprising and demands explanation."5 The author of this last quotation thought that the document was a royal letter. But no reference to the fact that Nebuchadnezzar actually invaded Egypt exists in Egyptian or Greek sources. Nor do the Hebrew sources speak of a conquest of Egypt by him or of the fulfilment of the prophecies of Ezekiel and Jeremiah, though they do mention the fact that Nebuchadnezzar was able to remove the Jewish refugees in Egypt to Babylon. A more critical examination of the tablet suggests that "this inscription used to be misunderstood ...
68. Heracles as Cross-Dresser [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon Volume VI, Number 4 Home | Issue Contents Heracles as Cross-Dresser Ev Cochrane Heracles is a hero to whom all sorts of bizarre traditions have attached themselves. Indeed, the Greek strongman seems to embody a wealth of contradictions. Most familiar as the invincible champion of the gods, Homer described Heracles as a malicious force oppressing Olympus. Although typically described as a giant- his prodigious weight is said to have all but sunk the Argo- Heracles is elsewhere represented as a dwarf. Scholars investigating such incongruous traditions have typically assumed that originally independent tales have coalesced around the popular Greek hero. In my various studies on Heracles, in contrast, I have suggested that ...
69. Homer in the Baltic (Omero nel Baltico) by Felice Vinci (Book Review). C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Editori, Rome (2nd ed. 1998) ISBN 88-7621-211-6 Emmet J. Sweeney The title of this book explains the content. Basically Felice Vinci argues that all the action of the two Homeric epics, the Odyssey and the Iliad, took place in the Baltic and the North Atlantic. Furthermore, it is asserted that the Achaeans (Homer's Greeks) originated along the shores of the Baltic and took their myths and legends (already fully developed) southwards when they settled around the Aegean. The book begins by quoting Professor Moses Finlay, the British classicist, who spoke of the complete lack of contact between Mycenaean geography, as we know it from the tablets and from archaeology, ...
70. The Velikovsky Affair [Books] [de Grazia books]
... who state that at the time of the flood of Ogyges so great a miracle happened in the star of Venus, as never was seen before nor in after-times: for the colour, the size, the figure, and the course of it were changed. ' The catastrophe associated with the name of Ogyges, a time mark for ancient Greeks, took place simultaneously with Venus' complete metamorphosis. This statement made by Varro, the most learned of all the Romans, ' on the authority of earlier scientists should have provoked interest in the time of Newton, when the working of the solar system was elevated to the state of a most exact science. But, whereas the ...
