161. Assyria and the End of the Late Bronze Age [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... it appeared like a sword."(7) Thus: "For My sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of My curse, to judgement." (Isaiah 34:5) On Velikovsky's own dates, the Sword God motifs at Yazilikaya are over 150 years too late, a most puzzling anomaly. On Glasgow chronology, however, they fit perfectly into the time of the Mars catastrophes. Not only is the eighth century the century of Isaiah, Homer, Romulus, and, on Glasgow chronology, Ramses II and Hattusilis III, it is also the time of Tiglath-Pileser III, Sargon and Sennacherib, the great conquerors of the Assyrian Empire. Like young Rome, the Assyrians worshipped the planet Mars- as Nergal, stormer of walls, bringer of victories. Before the time of upheaval, Assyria had been in relative obscurity for the best part of a century, after the reign of Shalmaneser III. At first held off by king Ahab of Israel and his allies in Syria ...

... SUNDAY AFTERNOON: CLARK WHELTON: Dark Ages of Greece The title is that of Velikovsky's unpublished book, which the speaker has seen. He spoke about the problems of trying to get the book published, and the meeting discussed the possibility of trying to expedite matters by writing to the publisher and perhaps also to Velikovsky's daughter. He told us something of the contents, of which these are some notes: There was a Helladic civilisation in Troy at the same time as a supposed dark age in Mycenae. The Hellenic age starts with Homer. Mycenae is linked to Akhnaton and the 18th Dynasty in Egypt. The Trojan war is given as 720-687. Troy had allies in Memnon and the Ethiopians. Several Aegean, Italian and Sicilian cities were founded by Trojans. cf Vergil's Aeneid and Herodotus. Gordian architecture and that of Troy are similar; conventional dates being 8th and 15th centuries BC respectively. The Mycenaeans evacuated their cities because of a catastrophe. Cretan civilisation ended in disaster. Agamemnon and Hezekiah were contemporaries. Cadmus invented the alphabet. Eratosthenes dated Troy to 1187 ...
163. Letters [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... Why? Athens is a plural noun, perhaps suggesting "the owls". The owl was the bird of Athene, and came to mean an Athenian coin. Gylippus, a Spartan commander in the Peloponnesian War, was suspected of taking bribes (he had a nest of owls under the eaves of his house). Erythrae is also a feminine plural, and means "red". The Greek root is often associated with redness of the face caused by shame or anger, two emotions which we are always coming across in Homer. A connection with divination might be made via Nemesis, the anger of a god at hybris. Diviners would be concerned with watching the sky for any sign, including a change in colour by a heavenly body, which would give warning of impending disaster. The aid of sympathetic magic might well be summoned. The people with white clay smeared on their faces would, with appropriate ritual, defeat those with red colouring, thereby helping the god in the sky to avoid swelling and bursting with rage. I hasten to stress ...

... made, but the AGM will be followed by a speaker meeting and refreshments. Ancient History Study Group Mixed fortunes attended the work of the Study Group during 1988. After the excellent March meeting (reported in Workshop 1988:1), David Rohl presented a stimulating talk on 'Early Greek History in the Light of the New Chronology' at David Roth's home in June. Based on a seminar previously given to a London University audience, David outlined the contradictions posed by the orthodox view of Greek history, stressed the pivotal importance of Homer in his thesis and, perhaps most significantly, that the later Greeks had no conception of a 'Dark Age' in their history. Due mainly to the postal strikes the planned August meeting had to be abandoned, and so the last meeting of the year was held at the home of Clarice Morgan on November 19th. In addition to reviewing the subjects covered in previous meetings, members were consulted on their particular areas of interest in the study of ancient history. This resulted in a discussion from which it became clear that the ...

166. Plato [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... be counted as a spiritual peer of Ezra, or a worthy teacher of Plato in search of wisdom. Later Greek philosophers regarded Plato as influenced by Mosaic teaching. ? Plato derived his idea of God from the Pentateuch. Plato is Moses translated into the language of the Athenians,? wrote Numenius and was quoted by Eusebius. (2) If one considers Plato ? s monotheism, his concept of an invisible and supreme spiritual Being, so different from the prevalent polytheism of other Greek philosophers and so remote from the pantheon of Homer and its scandalous Olympians with their permanent strife and marital and extra-marital affairs with mortal women, one is inclined to think that Plato, at the time of his travel to Egypt thirty years old, happened to sit at the feet of Ezra. A late Greek tradition has it that Aristotle on his travel to the lands of the eastern Mediterranean met a very wise Jew from whom he learned much wisdom. (3) However, it is not known whether Aristotle ever went to Palestine and Egypt. Besides, in Aristotle, ...
167. Saturn [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... around Saturn, they may have some other components, too. Since these lines were written, spectroscopic study of the Saturnian rings has revealed that they consist mainly of water in the form of ice (1966). Sodium chloride and cosmic rays are two phenomena still waiting to be investigated. Therefore, when I presented to Dr. H. H. Hess in his capacity as chairman of the Space Board of the National Academy of Science, a memorandum (dated September 11, 1963), subsequently submitted also to Dr. Homer Newell in his capacity as Director of NASA, I included these lines concerning Saturn: ? Saturn. Tests should be devised for detection of low-energy cosmic rays emanating from Saturn, especially during the weeks before and after a conjunction of Earth-Jupiter-Saturn.? ? Chlorine should be looked for in the Saturnian spectrum of absorption.? References Interestingly, for certain reasons G. Kuiper assumed in recent years that Saturn originally was of a mass equal to that of Jupiter. Sky &Telescope, March 1959, p. 259. ...

... ; the Magazine will start in March and this paper, if it will be written, will appear probably in June. The thing that matters here is that the initiative for this invitation came from Harry Sherman, a President of the Book-of-the-Month Club and Mr. Fadiman, a judge of this organization; I did not know that the latter read my Cosmology. I work hard to complete my cosmology. Occasionally I would like to ask your assistance. Boll. Sternglaube, p. 201, refers to two texts: Heraclitus, Homer. allegor. cap. 53 and Gennadius, Dialogus Christian c. Judaeo, p. 37, 23f. These texts must refer to collisions among the planets. Also Plato, Timaeus 40c; the available translation seems not precise. Occasionally I found that Josephus ? manuscripts have Tutimaeus in two words: Would it be correct to read Taoui Timeus? (I do not remember, whether in Manetho edition of Loeb Library, or in their Josephus). With thanks and as ever, Im. Velikovsky Your father and you ...

In Gordion vases signed vases signed by Klitias and Ergotimos were found in a layer contemporary with the Hittite Empire. In the entire Asia Minor Phrygian remnants are consistently found in deeper strata than the HIttite remnants of the Empire period. Also on Greek sculptures there are Hittite hieroglyphs.

... should leave discernible relics for archaeologists; usually under such circumstances potsherds or a few beads, or a clay figurine, are found. Ash and kitchen refuse are ubiquitous finds wherever there was human habitation. But that on an area over 250,000 square miles in extent there should, as Akurgal claims, be found nothing, not even tombs, from a period counted not just by decades but by centuries, actually a period of almost five hundred years, is hardly less than miraculous. References Akurgal, Die Kunst Anatoliens von Homer bis Alexander (Berlin, 1961), pp. 5-7; cf. his Phrygische Kunst (Ankara, 1955), p. 112. Ibid., p.7. ...
