311. A Question of Logic [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Dorian invasions.11 Not merely content with disposing the three or four hundred year long Greek Dark Age, Velikovsky claims that "the timetables of Crete (Minoan Ages) and of early Greece (Mycenaean ages) are displaced by the same stretch of time by which the Egyptian dates are out of step with the revised chronology."12 Homer is normally dated around -850, and the Archaic Age between -800 and -500. Here the advice given me is that "Troy fell some time in the late eighth or early seventh century; soon after (one generation, according to Greek tradition) came the end of the Mycenaean Age, separated by only a few decades from the ...

... Assaulting Planet In Biblical and Talmudic literature, it is related that the following four catastrophes all occurred on the vernal equinox: (a ) the Sodom-Gomorrah Catastrophe, (b ) the Gideon Midnight Bash, (c ) the Exodus Catastrophe and, (d ) the Isaiah-Sennacherib event. In addition, a careful analysis of The Iliad, by Homer, indicates that the opening scenes of the Trojan War were also the scenes of a Mars flyby, in the early spring or very late winter, a date in windy March. If one is to follow Occam's razor, i.e ., that the simplest answer to a scientific question is usually the best, then we are ...

313. Bouquets and Brickbats: A Reply to Martin Sieff [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... perhaps even repair half-wrecked structures in which they could live, very much as in the more squalid corners of the modern world, without having to pay anyone rent. Such, apparently, was the case at level VIIA on what is today the mound of Hissarlik, in present-day Turkey, a site that has long been linked with that of Homeric Troy.21 And, in fact, so also was it at Jericho. The change from Early Bronze to Middle Bronze was not abrupt. It went through a transition period, one that Kathleen Kenyon referred to as Intermediate Early Bronze-Middle Bronze. As she stated: For a long time the newcomers only camped on the site, and ...

... Venus was designated "the Newcomer." Could it be that the now peaceful planet originated as a cometary "protoplanet," and only settled into its present orbit within the past few thousand years? Figuring crucially into Velikovsky's argument is the well-known story of the Greek goddess Athena (identified by Velikovsky with Venus). In the account of Homer, Athena is "born" from the head of Zeus, the planet Jupiter. It was apparently this story that first led Velikovsky to surmise that a cometary Venus may have exploded from Jupiter during a period of Jovian instability-a possibility that soon grew into a firm conviction. Here, then, is Velikovsky's scenario: Some time before 1500 ...

... of later times." Like his many counterparts in the ancient world, Kronos was the acknowledged prototype of kings, his rule in heaven providing the standards for rule on earth. Every Greek king thus bore the universal burden of royalty, for the Greeks applied exactly the same test of the just or good ruler as did other peoples. Homer, most famous of the Greek poets, announced 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 people prosper." It was the duty of the king, as the First ...

316. The Birth of Venus from Jupiter [Journals] [Kronos]
... planet could have been organized inside of the Jovian orbit from the original nebular material. So much for the eruption of Venus from Jupiter. In a memorandum submitted by me in September, 1963, to the Space Board of the National Academy of Sciences, through its Chairman, Professor H. H. Hess (a copy to Dr. Homer Newell of NASA), I suggested that "precise calculations should be made to the effect of the magnetic field permeating the solar system on the motion of the planet [Jupiter] which is surrounded by a magnetosphere [emitting radiation] of an intensity presumably 10" times that of the terrestrial magnetosphere. This is basic to the impending ...

... 11. mythography (illustration of myths in visual art) 1850 12 myth (rhyming with "kith") 1865(9 ) As the 18th century English form "mythos" suggests, however, none of the words in the above sequence are native to English - or for that matter, to French or Latin. All are of Homeric Greek origin. And at this point we move from lexicology (in its narrower sense, which restricts it to the history of words within one language) to etymology (which relates the vocabulary of later languages to that of earlier, presumably ancestral, languages). By Classical times, the word muthos - pronounced mythos by the Athenians ...

318. Child of Saturn (Part III) [Journals] [Kronos]
... (4 ) Can a connection, instead, be made between this goddess and Saturn? Let us, first of all, examine the Mahadevi's supposed recentness. While conceding with most Indologists that the contents of the puranas derive from greater antiquity, as literary works they are very late sources - later by far than the works of Hesiod and Homer with which we commenced this work.(5 ) The Markandeya Purana, which contains perhaps the best material on the Mahadevi, has been dated to the 10th century A.D .( 6 ) The Mahabharata, which includes some earlier references, has been dated by some scholars as early as 500 B.C . but it ...
