191. Theophany, Part 1 Venus Ch.4 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... trumpet sounding at Mount Sinai had seven different pitches (or notes), and the rabbinical literature speaks of "the heavenly music" heard at the revelation. "At the first sound the sky and the earth moved, the seas and the rivers turned to flight, mountains and hills were loosened in their foundations."(12) Homer depicts a similar occurrence in these words: "The wide earth rang, and round about great heaven pealed as with a trumpet."(13) "The world all burns at the blast of the horn," is said in the Völuspa(14) According to the Hebrew tradition, all the nations heard the roaring of ...
192. The Chaldeans of Sumer [Journals] [Aeon]
... ' a farmer's manual composed some 10 centuries later by the Greek poet Hesiod. A number of Sumerian dialogues are now being pieced together and deciphered, and these, too, may turn out to be stylistic predecessors, precursors of such masterpieces as Plato's Dialogues. '" Since the "Sumerian" Chaldeans lived during the heyday of Mycenaean, Homeric Greece, and right before the Classical period, with no intervening dark age, these astonishing "echoes" can be readily understood. In Biblical studies too, we can now see that far from Abraham coming out of Sumer, so that later Biblical culture is but a pale echo of it, the brilliant Solomonic Israelite culture at the ...
193. Tiy's End. Part 2 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... adverse circumstances did she finish her life? Why was she treated as an outcast when her eyes closed? Why was her mummy removed even from the shabby tomb, as though the place was still too good for her? Perhaps the Greek tradition can give us the answer to this strange state of affairs. Jocasta took her own life: Homer knew this, and the passage has been quoted on a previous page. Let us examine whether such an end for Tiy would explain many things left unexplained concerning her death. All over the world, among the most disparate races, a suicide, unless he offers his life on the altar of his nation, is denied the honors ...
194. Incest. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... a child by her. If there was secrecy about the relations between mother and son at first there was no such secrecy later. It must have been part of the tradition that grew into a legend about the tragic fate of Akhnaton and his house that relations between the king and his mother were kept secret for only a short time. Homer says that the union of son and mother was "speedily made known." King Burraburias, the only monarch of the period who dared to speak to the pharaoh as a superior to an inferior, and whose historical identity was clarified in Ages in Chaos, wrote in a letter to Akhnaton: "For the mistress of thy house ...
195. The Seven-Gated Thebes and The Hundred-Gated Thebes. Part 1 (Oedipus and Akhnaton) [Velikovsky]
... of Egypt the vast buildings of Thebes have "served as quarries for millstones and for the lime-burners," yet Thebes still presents "the greatest spectacle of monumental ruins remaining from ancient times." The Oedipus legend is connected with Thebes in Boeotia. Thebes in Egypt, known to the Greeks by this name at least since the time of Homer, was the greater of the two; it was also the more ancient. The New Kingdom was created by the efforts of Kamose and Ahmose, brothers who fought against the waning domination of the Shepherd-Kings; of Thutmose I, who penetrated into Asia, and of his daughter Hatshepsut, who increased and enriched the empire by peaceful intercourse ...
196. Martian Metamorphoses: The Planet Mars in Ancient Myth and Religion by Ev Cochrane [Journals] [SIS Review]
... world: Batraz of the Ossetes in the Caucasus is also credited with descending from the sky when furious and assuming a brilliant red form. Considering Apollo, Cochrane indicates that, far from being the god of light and culture as later depicted by the Greeks, the earliest myths show him as a god of war and pestilence, described by Homer as the cause of the outbreak of the Trojan war. In fact he has many resemblances to Reseph, Nergal and Erra. Reseph's cult is believed to have originated in Syria but spread throughout the Mediterranean and both Reseph and Apollo have combat myths in which they slay serpents. Apollo also has connections with the Indian war god Rudra, ...

... gravitational influence of a passing cosmic body. Dwardu Cardona: The River of Ocean 37 In the third of his series of articles on planetary identities', Dwardu Cardona concentrates on the celestial serpent and its relation to the ocean - the celestial ocean - and makes some intriguing tie-ins with the Saturn scenario. David Rohl: The Historicity of the Homeric Poems and Traditions 43 This, the first of three essays on ancient Greece in the light of the New Chronology', argues for the abolition of the Dark Ages of Greece and for Homer's reinstatement as a near-contemporary of the Trojan War. Editor: Bernard Newgrosh Editorial Address: c/o Derek Shelley-Pearce, 29, Cudham Lane North ...

200. The Catastrophic Substructure of the Samson & Delilah Myth [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... of David's son Absalom, when shorn, was said to have weighed two hundred shekels. These thoughts lead us to consider the celestial and catastrophic elements of the Samson and Delilah story in the Bible. Samson is one of the mighty heroes called Judges' in the Pentateuch who accomplished feats of strength comparable to Odysseus in the Greek stories by Homer. After the usual feat of slaying a lion at the vineyards of Timnah (2 ), Samson sets fire to the Philistine crops by catching three hundred foxes and putting a torch between them after pairing the foxes off and tying up their tails (3 ). Next Samson slays one thousand men with the jawbone of an ass ( ...
