11. SIS Study Group 17th June 2000 [SIS C&C Review $]
... . If '40' was symbolic, then the question of numerical accuracy did not apply. He was not sure about more than 40 stripes being fatal. Sailors some two or more centuries ago were sometimes sentenced to 100 lashes not intended to be fatal and in recent times foreigners had received 100 strokes for alcohol-related offences in Saudi Arabia and survived. Perhaps here, too, the meaning was not literal, the Judge being required to set a fair number of stripes according to the crime, and no more. JC said in the Koran '40' was used, as with Moses, to define some periods in the life of Mohammed, so was regarded among Muslims as a holy number. There seemed to be an element of this in the OT references. The 40-year eras were mostly those which might be regarded as ordained by God, or under his overall stewardship. The fact that such usage applies only to the time before the beginning of the Divided Monarchy may also be significant. Perhaps its use was chosen for periods for which records were lost in ancient ...
12. The Acceptance of Correct Ideas in Science [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... some “blocking,” in the psychoanalytic sense, to see obvious things. Why have students of mythology failed to discover why the gods of the pantheons of all ancient races should have been identified with the planets? Why do the traditions of all races speak of celestial theomachy, of great natural perturbations, with the Sun, stars, and meteors taking part? Or, why do modern students of religion not wonder at the grandiose natural events described in the holy books and the concepts ofeschatology so prominent in the Gospels and the Koran? Why do students of geology strain themselves to explain, or explain away, catastrophically-formed phenomena they observe on the bottoms of the seas, in mountain ridges, in great fields of lava, and great deserts? I have called this psychological phenomenon collective amnesia. and I have explained the term elsewhere: it is not that we have no historical evidence: it is rather the inability to read the texts as they are — Mars for Mars, Jupiter for Jupiter, fire for fire, hurricane for hurricane, and deluge for ...
13. The Merlin 'Vision' and the 6th Century 'Event' [SIS C&C Review $]
... loading the upper atmosphere caused the death and destruction at the start of the European 'Dark Ages', then it covered a vast area of Britain. St Teilo became Bishop of Llandaf Cathedral after Dyfrig (Dubricius) who, according to local tradition, crowned the young Arthur as King. According to Wilson, Blackett and Gilbert, 'The exact nature of the Holy Grail, like the Philosopher's Stone of alchemy, is itself a matter of some conjecture. In Welsh the Greal is a collection of stories such as the Bible or the Koran. However, we have seen that in medieval literature it is sometimes described as a special stone, a lapsit excilis or 'paltry stone' with the connected meaning of lapis ex caelis or 'stone from heaven''.

14. Desert of Wandering [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... of Moslem times, actually deep in the Arabian Peninsula, all indications in the Old Testament are for a deep penetration of the Arab Peninsula by the wandering Israelites who escaped the land of Egypt destroyed by the catastrophe in the mid-fifteenth century before the present era. There are autochthonous Arab traditions about the wandering tribes led by Mosaikaia, his brother Arnran, and his sister Zeripha. These traditions have not been borrowed from the Old Testament or rabbinical tradition. From the Bible and Midrashim, the Arabs culled much of the content of the Koran, but they did not realize that their traditions about Mosaikaia (and the catastrophe that took place in his time) are of independent origin, though referring to the same persons and events. All together indicates that the Israelites under Moses did not spend forty years in the small triangular Sinai Peninsula, but in the western regions of Arabia. ...
15. Kadesh Barnea [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... Midian also was not in the Negev or on the coast of the Aqaba Gulf, but where today is Medina the place where Moses spent years as a political emigré from Egypt, prior to the Exodus. The reson for the long stay of the Israelites at Kadesh Barnea was in the existence there of sources of water, while in the Desert most of the rare sources became bitter. I am also helped in my identification of Kadesh Barnea with Mecca by what I believe is the Arab autochthonous (in distinction with stories in the Koran which were borrowed from Jewish teachings) tradition of the passage of the Sea and wandering in the Desert told in the story of Mosai-ka-ya and his brother (carrying a name similar to Aaron, and a sister resembling Miriam), The lay flocks of wanderers under the leadership of these three occupied Mecca. Mecca was abandoned by the Amalekites following the catastrophe that also ruined Egypt, shortly before its occupation by the Israelites, after Mecca was shattered by earthquakes and plagued by an invasion of vermin (ants). Israelites occupied the ...
16. A Jewish State is Reborn [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... to humanity, a victor over 2,000 years ? persecution, is no longer homeless. The Sabbath candles kindled tonight in Palestine will still be burning when the Jewish State is born. All who believe in Destiny and Providence ought to say a prayer of thanksgiving. The President of the United States should lead this nation in prayer. Is not the redemption of Israel a divine promise, and a fulfillment of a covenant, and a benediction for all humanity? Are not the Hebrew Bible, the Christian Gospels, the Moslem Koran, full of prophecies of this day? The Jewish State is reborn and the most ancient nation on earth is redeemed. ? O thou afflicted, tossed with tempest, and not comforted... in righteousness shalt thou be established... for the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but My kindness shall not depart form thee, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, saith the Lord that has mercy on thee... whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall.? ...

... * It is much more comfortable at the Waldorf than in a camel-skin tent, and as Feisal flies in an elevator some forty floors up to his suite, he must feel some respect for American technical genius. He has probably written his father a wonderful description of America. He could have mentioned that in New York there are more than two million Jews, and not even one molested him or any other Arab, and that therefore a Jewish State in Palestine may, after all, be a good idea, especially since the Koran expressly says that the Holy Land is given by the Lord to the Jews for their dominion. ...

... side of the capstone is abundant and occasionally connecting with lines on the top. The surface of the dolmen was obviously smoothed and prepared for the inscriptions. The actual age is unknown but the desert varnish on the Ogam, the depressions, and the smoothed surface is substantial." The Colorado inscribed dolmen in situ. The top is also inscribed. Barry Fell has translated the markings, which in his view are in Arabic Ogam, as: Top: God is strong. Strong to help his right hand. Front: The Koran is the unique achievement of the prophet pious and tender. (Morehouse, Judy; "A Colorado Dolmen Inscribed with Ogam," Epigraphic Society, Occasional Publications, 11:209, no. 269, 1983.) Comment. A photograph accompanying the article shows a striking artifact with strongly engraved markings. The second stone was discovered at a petroglyph site in south central Alabama. This stone has an apparent jumble of scratches or grooves on two faces, which one might easily ascribe to plows. Barry Fell, however, ...
