101. The Book of Revelation is History [Books]
... author, or, rather, the redactor, himself who speaks: hence the considerable idiomatic fluency, and the strong personal flavour, of the language. In the mythological sections, however, the redactor is evidently tied to the words and constructions of a source. The impression one gains is that he translates, utilizes, adapts. The linguistic eccentricities, and even barbarisms, of the apocalyptic passages of the Book of Revelation prove, to my mind, beyond any doubt that they are due to translation-to translation from a difficult, and partly corrupt and fragmentary, text. It will be generally agreed that one's own thoughts usually express themselves naturally and harmoniously in words. When one ...
102. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part I: The Archaeological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... to be the appearance of the Indo-European Luwian and Nesian-speaking peoples, both categorized as Hittites. The Luwians were a branch of the large movement of Indo-European peoples, usually associated with the archaeological culture known as Kurgan IV. This culture entered Anatolia about 2300 BC from the west and possibly from the east as well . Based on linguistic evidence of later Hittite texts, there are good indications that the Nesian-speaking Hittites moved into Anatolia from the south and west, shortly after the appearance of the Luwians. The influence of these new elements has been detected in the design of the Kultepe megaron of around 2300 BC . As a general comment at this point, ...
103. Eastern Anatolia and Velikovsky's Chronological Revisions I [Journals] [Kronos]
... . Altogether, the scope and impact of Hurrian influence is most impressive.(11) III Now, according to Velikovsky's chronological revisions, the Hurrians flourished not in the 16th-14th centuries B.C . but in the 11th-9th, and, as we have seen, he postulates their identification with the Carians.(12) Showing the weak linguistic evidence for a reading khur/hur rather than khar/kar, and noting the obvious importance of the Hurrians about whom almost nothing is known, he recalls that the Carians are said to have come from Crete and that Strabo (I .3 .21) speaks of their wide migration. He further notes that the Carian language ...
104. Alternatives in Science: The Secular Creationism of Heribert Nilsson [Journals] [Kronos]
... they debate". The editorial statement introduces the first issue - Summer 1980. The first article of this issue is Frank Awbrey's "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Creation Model". Needless to say, neither it nor any subsequent piece in the journal mentions the alternative, secular creationism of Nilsson. 6. E.g . linguistics: cf. Gray 1980, Hall 1981, Gray,1981.

105. Letters [Journals] [SIS Review]
... that Cicero knew whereof he spoke, and not "that the name Venus' was created from the verb venire to come', which is Cicero's responsibility. As to whether Cicero was assuming the derivation or whether he had unreported information to back it up, I don't know - nor does Lowery. However, I do wonder what future linguistic experts will make of a name such as Elephant and Castle, should they be "in ignorance of the ancient antecedents of the word[s ] .. ." . As for Lowery's assertion that Velikovsky "frequently asserted", he nowhere substantiates this. Because of carelessness, what should have been a valid scholarly critique is reduced ...
106. News from the Internet [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... on and off" by extraordinary environmental changes. This leads to something like metamorphic evolution: If butterflies do it today, why not other creatures under other conditions? Ninety percent of our genes don't seem to do anything. What are they waiting for? A full moon? Let's perform one more thought experiment with this conceptual chromatography. Modern linguistics postulates a development of language gradually over thousands of years. A band of "oral color" spreads out before the band of "written color". But the earliest expressions contained in this linguistic "spectrum" testify that both utterance and symbol were given all at once by the gods. In the beginning was the word, and ...
107. Solomon's Temple: An Astronomical Observatory [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ball-like markers were the oxen. This may seem like an irreconcilable divergence between the two texts, but not really. A Hebrew student would find the word for oxen in his lexicon under a verbal form which means "to divide or mark out." The Hebrew word for "morning" which also denotes a unit of measurement is related linguistically to "cow" or "ox" and carries with it the traditional distinction between light and darkness. It should also be noted that as we are dealing in Solomon's temple with a circular object called a sea (yam), the Hebrew word may very well derive from the same root word from which comes the Hebrew word for ...
108. Did the Sumerians and the Akkadians Ever Exist? [Journals] [Aeon]
... 2000 BCE. The so-called late version of the epic from the library of Ashurbanipal (ca. 668 to ca. 627 BCE), however, is written in a much more repetitive, pedantic, and less variegated manner. Thus, the late version looks more archaic than the version supposedly up to 1300 years older. Also from a linguistic point of view, the so-called late version of the Gilgamesh Epic surprisingly appears to be older than the "Old Babylonian" version dated up to 1300 years earlier than that "late" version of the Assyrian king Ashurbanipal. Amazingly the "Old Babylonian" version of the Gilgamesh Epic of, at the earliest ca. 2000 BCE, ...
109. Velikovsky, Glasgow and Heinsohn Combined [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , virtually identical in fact to the Indo-Iranian language of the Medes. The text of a treaty between Mitanni and the Hittite land shows that Mitra, Varuna and Indra, deities of Indo-Iranian origin, comprised the Mitanni pantheon. Indo-Iranian technical terms appear with great frequency in the Mitanni vocabulary . It is true that another racial and linguistic group, designated Hurrian, is evinced in Mitannian documents and personal names. The exact relationship between the Hurrian and Mitannian elements is unclear, though it would appear that the Iranian group was dominant, for all the Mitanni kings had clearly Iranian names. Hurrian is non-Indo-European and is closely related to the language of Urartu, the region of ...
110. Pharaoh Seti the Great and His Foreign Connections [Journals] [Kronos]
... is, without resorting to interpretations conditioned by our own philosophical convictions. Egyptology is a young and overly confident science, and its literature is ample proof of the aforementioned difficulty. How would our texts read if cultured Hindu yogis had constructed this science? How would Egyptian religion be explained if oriental scholars had conducted all of the archaeological research and linguistic analysis now credited to the French and English? Objective measurements of objects and determinations of material properties will be conducted in much the same manner by Easterners and Westerners alike. There, however, the agreement ends because Hindu yogis, for example, acknowledge perceptual experience which is not merely denied but hotly rejected by any well-funded Western institution. ...
