4. Darkness Over Sinai (Where was Moses when the light went out?) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... life seems to suggest an element of confusion. The Bible gives his age as 80 years old when the Exodus took place and as 120 at death. This far exceeds the allotted three-score years and ten, but to assert that these years were lunar years' is unnecessary and there is another possibility open to deal with this problem. The Koran [2 ] records the revelations of Allah to Muhammad and there are frequent references to the followers of the Book (i .e . the Bible of the Jews). In Chapter 16 and elsewhere it considers its revelations to be the most recent words of God, which were necessary to remove errors and differences that had arisen after ...
5. Ebla and Velikovsky [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... historicity of Abraham at the end of the Early Bronze Age is considerably strengthened. It will be some time before this can be confirmed.7 Something else of interest, however, turns up in the Ebla record. Just as Sodom and Gomorrah were proverbially "sinful" cities. so Samuta, Ad, and Irma were characterized in the Koran as examples of divine retribution. All three were listed in the Ebla tablets and are probably to be located in Syria. In Islamic tradition they were identified with Damascus. Beyond the Ebla references and the Koran there is no other mention of this triad of cities.8 Jerusalem As in so many cases of controversy over whether a person ...
6. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... section, 14 March 1999, carried a review of The Road to Ubar: Atlantis of the Sands by Nicholas Clapp (Souvenir Press £18.99) by Anthony Sattin. A 10th-century Yemeni historian, Aby Muhammad al-Hamdani, attempted to document lost civilisations, such as the southern Arabian tribe of Ad and their city, Ubar. The Koran says they were dealt with' by Allah for being arrogant and unjust'. T E Lawrence reported being told by Arabs that ruined castles' had been seen in the region of Wabar'. The city had never been found. Ubar and the tribe of Ad were known to the Romans. Nicholas Clapp consulted 15th-century copies of Ptolemy's ...

... 40 years on the Mesha stele is mentioned. He notes that Genesis 50:3 gives 40 days as the period of Egyptian embalming of Jacob, as commanded by Joseph. Many other instances of 40-year periods were collected by Hirzel from Greek and Roman writers. The Arabs use 40 frequently as a round' number. He quotes from the Koran: ' .. . till he reached his full strength and attained the age of forty years' and states that these are words which explain the tradition that Mohammed received his call to be a prophet at the age of 40 .. .'. He notes that, according to Brugsch, 40 years' in Persian today means ...

... of stone," ' are forbidden in Leviticus (xxvi, 1). The sacred character of the pillar among Israelites and Canaanites alike is sufficiently illustrated. The Nabatheans at Petra worshipped a black stone about four feet high and two square, called Dhu Shera, Lord of Desire.117 The Ansab or Menhirs are specially condemned in the Koran (Sura v, 92). " Smeared stones " -that is anointed-are often found in Syria.

... crowns upon their heads" (Ezekiel 23:42). The Yemenites, the inhabitants of the land of Saba (Sheba) in Arabia Felix, believe that the Queen of Sheba was their queen, and with rich oriental imagery they ornament the story of her life and of her visit to Jerusalem. This view is supported by the Koran (Sura XXVII). But Ethiopia vies with Arabia for the fame of the Queen of the South. The kings of Ethiopia claim descent from Menelik, a son of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, who, they insist, was their queen. They possess medieval manuscripts, with texts composed in the early Christian centuries, which ...

... and compare it further with Vishnu issuing from the Pillar. Dios Polis was Lydda; and see what is said about Lydia and the Magnet . It is needless to repeat what Gibbon said about George (of Cappadocia), but there need be little doubt that this George is the Jinns who Moslems say was the Al-Khedr or Khizr of the Koran (ch. xviii), and who was a transmigration of Elias or EIYah. See the famous apologue acted by AI-Khedr in the chapter mentioned, and so well used by Voltaire. Allah sent Moses to find Al-Khedr at a Rock where two seas met, and where a fish took to the water. The station of Elias or ...
