281. Velikovsky and His Heroes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... launch, Einstein too, as progenitor of the atom bomb brought down a literal fire from heaven upon the bloodstained Earth. Assyrian soldiers torturing prisoners - from an 8th/7th century relief of uncertain provenance. The final section of Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos series has yet to be published. Originally entitled, revealingly, The Age of Isaiah and Homer, it grew into two sections, The Assyrian Conquest, and Dark Ages of Greece, from which considerable extracts have been published over the last decade. It is curious that even when Velikovsky finally overcame his reluctance to publish Peoples of the Sea and Ramses II, he still held back this volume, the volume which was needed to ...

... Snorri's tale ( appendix #7 ). Three fundamental and far-reaching themes have been set: the broken mill, the whirlpool, the salt. As for the curse of the miller women, it stands out alone like a megalith abandoned in the landscape. But surprisingly it can also be found, already looking strange, in the world of Homer, two thousand years before. [n4 It was J. G. von Hahn (Sagwissenschaftliche Studien [1876], pp. 401f.) who first pointed to the similarity of the episodes in Snorri's Edda and in the Odyssey.] It is the last night, in the Odyssey (20.103-19, Rouse trans. ...

Sir Fred Hoyle's chronology according to an impact period of 1600 years: 10,700 BC Strike of major bolide ends Ice Age 9,100 BC Lesser impacts produce extinction of mammoth 7,500 BC 2nd large bolide strike confirms end of Ice Age 5,900 BC Metals smelted naturally 4,300 BC Metals smelted naturally. Beginning of Homeric religions 2,700 BC End of Egyptian Old Dynasty. Pyramid construction starts shortly thereafter 1,100 BC Origin of Judaism 500 AD Decline of Roman Empire. Origin of Islam 2,100 AD Next strike, probably with reduced intensity Sir Fred's claim prompts us to consider the 4th hypothesis: 4. Either metal smelting and the building ...

... ." Diodorus said the same of the oracle of Amon visited by Alexander: "The god by a nod of his head directs them." Strabo, too, dwelt on this peculiarity: The oracular responses were not, as at Delphi and among the Branchidae, given in words, but mostly by nods and tokens, as in Homer, "Cronion spoke and nodded assent with his dark brows," the prophet having assumed the role of Zeus; however, the fellow expressly told the king that he, Alexander, was son of Zeus. Here is a further reason why the priest spoke to his idol and to Alexander in similar fashion (calling both god Amon ...

... mostly clay until-1200, and the Greek inscriptions of the seventh century are also in clay or on stone, as are the Phoenician inscriptions of the period between. Had Greek inscriptions existed from-1200 to-700 "we must have found some traces of them."14 This problem also involves a further one: were the Homeric creations transmitted orally and recited from memory by the bards, or were they written down? They were created in the thirteenth or twelfth century, argue some scholars. They could not have been handed down orally for many centuries, argue others. .The internal archaeological indications point overwhelmingly to the fact that the world of the Iliad and ...

... chronology. Conditions for carbon dating as discussed below were the same at both locations, but "corrections" were applied at only one site. The following material reviews the information presented by Isaacson. A palace and town were uncovered near the present day Pylos in Greece. The remains are thought to be those of the ancient Pylos mentioned by Homer. A particular burned layer was given an absolute date by relating Mycenaean pottery to the Egyptian chronology. If the Egyptian date must be reduced by several hundred years, then so must the date for Pylos. The same person (Blegen) excavated Troy and used the same dating method. Isaacson points out that abundant archaeological evidence indicates that ...

... from -1289 to -1303. As I show in Ramses II and his Time, this debate has absolutely no meaning if Ramses belongs at the end of the seventh or at the beginning of the sixth century before the present era instead of centuries earlier. Another volume deals with the Dark Age of Greece. In it I will show how the Homeric Problem can be eliminated [8 ]. No documents or buildings have survived from the Dark Age, the ancient Greeks never mentioned it and seemingly knew nothing of it. its removal gave me great satisfaction, and should exhilarate Greek scholars, because the last link to a misguided Egyptian chronology can now be severed from Greek history. The ...

... introduce a new Golden Age. (33) " Such is the test of the just or good ruler, who brings prosperity and a fruitful earth. This belief, which seems to have held sway over the entire ancient world, receives insufficient attention from historians: it points directly to the extraordinary memory of the Universal Monarch. Consider: Homer gives as the ideal "a blameless king whose fame goes up to the wide heaven, maintaining right, and the black earth bears wheat and barley and the trees are laden with fruit, and the sheep bring forth and fail not, and the sea hives store of fish, and all from his good guidance, and the people ...

... Kaqu, Sinai, and every other turning or churning mountain must take its place at the celestial omphalus or cosmic centre; and all moving forms that revolved around that centre, among the Greeks, were primitively known as Cyclades or revolvers, and among the ancient Latins they were turners and old Turnus was their guardian. I recall that in Homer, Ogygia is said to be the ophalus thalasses, the navel or middle of the sea, and in the Rig Veda it is asserted that the navel is "the uttermost end of the earth". This "end of the earth" was the place where all canopy scenes ended the Aphes, the Ophir of the Hebrews, ...

While Latourette had complained that Velikovsky had ignored the latest experts, Gaposchkin chastised Velikovsky for neglecting the oldest ones. Instead of relying on the Old Testament, and on Homer and Hesiod, Velikovsky preferred to employ rabbinical and patristic sources, and Ovid and Apollodorus Rhodius. "One might as well turn to Paradise Lost' for a factual account of the Creation. The more primitive sources lend his ideas little weight." Her Harvard colleague, Donald Menzel, published in Physics Today (July) an addendum ...
