71. Menelaos in Egypt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... could well have been identical to Ah-hotep's Haunebu. There is in fact a vast body of evidence which would suggest a date of c.700 BC for the fall of Troy. Traditions surrounding the Olympic Games, for example, (founded in 776 BC) clearly show that the Games were in existence well before the Trojan campaign. Thus Homer, who must have lived within a century of the first Olympiad, describes how both Nestor and his father Neleus won prizes at the festival [9 ]. Another tradition held that it was Pelops, the grandfather of Agamemnon, who founded the Games . Traditions about the alphabet tell a similar tale. Kadmos, who ...
72. Disarranged Months, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... nine days was for a while a time period of many ancient peoples: the Hindus, the Persians,2 the Babylonians,3 the Egyptians,4 and the Chinese.5 In religious traditions, literature, and astrological works, seven days and ni ne days compete as the measure of the month's quarter. In the time of the Homeric epics, the nine-day week became prevalent in the Greek world. The seven-day week and the nine-day week are both found in Homer.6 The Romans, too, retained the recollection of a time when the week had been of nine days' duratio n.7 The change from a seven-day phase to a nine-day phase is found in ...
73. Some Preliminary Remarks About Thera and Atlantis [Journals] [Kronos]
... Deucalion, by the revised scheme, cannot stay in ca. 1500 B.C . to be synchronous with the Exodus either. The ancient calculation of his date was made under the assumption that the Trojan War was fought in the early 12th century B.C ., since, combining statements from Hesiod (Catal. 1-13) and Homer (Iliad 6.153-206), our most ancient sources, Deucalion lived six generations earlier than Nestor and seven generations earlier than Glaukos and Nestor's son Antilochos, all of whom fought at Troy. Velikovsky would bring that war down to the 8th century B.C . (i .e ., shortly before Hesiod's and Homer's time ...
74. More on Jonathan Swift abd the Moons of Mars (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... ] accordingly believed that Galileo had discovered two moons around Mars." But Galileo did not discover them and they remained undiscovered for more than two hundred fifty years. Strangely, Koestler passes over the incident without expressing wonder at Kepler's seeming prescience. As I have shown in Worlds in Collision (" The Steeds of Mars") the poets Homer and Virgil knew of the trabants of Mars, visualized as his steeds, named Deimos (Terror) and Phobos (Rout). Kepler referred to the satellites of Mars as being "burning" or "flaming", the same way the ancients had referred to the steeds of Mars. Ancient lore preserved traditions from the time when ...
75. Golden Age Canopy by Isaac Vail [Books]
... views held by the first commentators of the old books, It now transpires that no man can be competent to give the true history of a man and the moon. We have no reliable assurance that any man living or dead has given us a correct rendering of the Vedas, which are a mine of fossil canopy thought, nor of Homer, nor even of the Old Testament writings. THE FOUNTAINS OF THE OCEAN OR THE OTHER DEEP. More than ten years after the first little book, "The Deluge and Its Cause", was published, in which the conviction was expressed that the great deep of Genesis was necessarily a vapor ocean that revolved as a Jupiter-like canopy ...
76. Compelling Insights: Concluded in Sorrow [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... planet. If, as per his scenario, it was the superimposition of these auroral rings around the reflected sunlit Earth in his mirrored canopy that constituted the primeval sun god, whence came the connection with the planet Saturn and its deity that the mytho-historical record alludes to? On a different subject, Derek also found it difficult to accept that Homer could write in the manner of our modern poets' and that, in composing the Iliad, the bard included a certain amount of divine intervention for good measure'. Here Derek seems to have misunderstood my argument and this was, perhaps, abetted by the fact that the editors of Workshop inadvertently dropped a line from my previous reply ...
77. Good Medicine [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 2 (Feb 1990) Home | Issue Contents Good Medicine by David Salkeld In Worlds in Collision, Velikovsky indicates that clouds which brought the Shadow of Death' upon the world were unusually fragrant [1 ]. In the subsequent section he equates what Hesiod and Homer call ambrosia' with the manna of the Israelites, and says that these substances were used as ointments. His authority for ambrosia is the Iliad xiv 170ff; Rieu's translation says that Here (Hera) began her preparations to seduce Zeus by removing every stain from her body with ambrosia, and anointing herself with the delicious and imperishable olive-oil she uses. It was ...
78. The Song of Love [Books] [de Grazia books]
... another. Phaeacia means in Greek the "Shining Land". It is a new community, now in its second generation. Its people were once settled in Hypereia, probably far to the East, when they were oppressed by savage giant neighbors, "a quarrelsome people who took advantage of their greater strength to plague them", says Homer. Their first king, Nausithous, father of the present king, the divine Alcinous, "made them migrate and settled them in Scheria [probably a mythical name, like Phaeacia and Hypereia], far from the busy haunts of men." "There he laid out the walls of a new city, built them houses, ...
79. The Flood from Heaven: Deciphering the Atlantis Legend by Eberhard Zangger [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the fullest and truest sense, a continent', fits the Black Sea better than the Atlantic Ocean. After the destruction of Atlantis, this ocean ceased to be navigable, which could be a reference to the loss of Trojan pilots capable of guiding ships through the difficult passage into the Black Sea. Moreover, according to both Appolodorus and Homer, the Trojan kings traced their descent from Atlas, giving a positive reason why Atlantis might have been an alternative name for Troy. Many of the geographical details of Atlantis described in the Critias correspond with features of the coastal plain around Troy, including the use of artificial canals (according to Zangger's interpretation of the archaeological evidence), ...

... outside all our time-reckonings and called the beginning of things" ' (3 ). One would think that Collingwood could use this definition to distinguish between ancient accounts reflecting some historical event and those concerned primarily with making a statement about the origin or constitution of the world. Such is not the case. In the same book, when discussing Homer, Collingwood remarks that "The work of Homer is not research, it is legend; and to a great extent it is theocratic legend. The gods appear in Homer as intervening in human affairs in a way not very different from the way in which they appear in the theocratic histories of the Near East" (4 ). ...
