61. VELIKOVSKY AND OEDIPUS [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon I:6 (1988) Home | Issue Contents Velikovsky And Oedipus Ev Cochrane It is well-known that Velikovsky first came to America to pursue research with regard to a project on Freud's heroes: Moses, Oedipus, and Akhnaton.(1 ) As a direct result of this research Velikovsky was led to revolutionary new insights concerning the recent history of our solar system, as well as a reconstruction and synchronisation of the ancient histories of the Near East. What is less well known is that Velikovsky's inspiration for this study came, at least in part, from his indignation over Freud's treatment of Moses in Moses and Monotheism. Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton in 1960 ...
62. Velikovsky and His Heroes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... provocative - analysis of Velikovsky's writings demonstrates the error of those critics who seek to label Velikovsky as a biblical fundamentalist. A close examination of the literary and psychological clues in his writings shows that the personal motivations which may have helped shape his work were actually far from being religious. The great religious leaders of the Old Testament, such as Moses and Elijah hardly figure at all in Ages in Chaos and Worlds in Collision Instead, pride of place is given to three other figures, Isaiah, Ahab and Saul, the last two being notorious "sinners" in the Old Testament. The prominence given to these three in Velikovsky's work, as well as the "anti-hero" Nebuchadrezzar ...
63. The Floods Of Deucalion And Ogyges, Part 1 Venus Ch.7 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... , the flood of Deucalion or that of Ogyges, had been contemporaneous with the Exodus. Julius Africanus wrote: "We affirm that Ogygus [Ogyges] from whom the first flood [in Attica] derived its name, and who was saved when many perished, lived at the time of the Exodus of the people from Egypt along with Moses."(18) He further expressed his belief in the coincidence of the catastrophe of Ogyges and the one that occurred in Egypt in the days of the Exodus in the following words: "The Passover and the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt took place, and also in Attica the flood of Ogygus. And that is according ...
... to buttress his arguments. (The only major exception was his demonstration that Nebuchadnezzar and Hattusilis were the same person psychologically: Even then, the psychological argument was secondary to historiographic ones.) I have already suggested that Velikovsky felt compelled to reorder history in order to refute Freud's notion that Akhnaton- not Moses- was the world's first monotheist. But Moses and Monotheism, the book in which Freud developed that thesis, was not only a negatively charged motivator, it was also a positive inducement as well. Many of Freud's suggestions in that book were reinterpreted in a Velikovskian sense. For example, at one point Freud discussed the phenomenon of rejection followed by rapid, near-universal acceptance of certain ...
65. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... Back | Main Contents | Volume Contents | Forward The Legends of the Jews by Louis Ginzberg IV Bible Times and Characters From Joshua to Esther I. JOSHUA The Servant of Moses Entering the Promised Land Conquest of the Land The Sun Obeys Joshua War with the Armenians Allotment of the Land THE SERVANT OF MOSES The early history of the first Jewish conqueror (1 ) in some respects is like the early history of the first Jewish legislator. Moses was rescued from a watery grave, and raised at the court of Egypt. Joshua, in infancy, was swallowed by a whale, and , wonderful to relate, did not perish. At a distant point of the sea-coast the ...

... anthropology. Psychology- again the psychoanalytic approach, not tight empirical psychology. So he got support from people who usually were just plain folks, intelligent (and therefore I say rare) readers, and a great many confused believers, or at least people who V. at bottom thought had no right to pass judgment on him. Like Moses, V spent a lot of private time disliking his People. Like the barons of the Magna Carta, he wanted judgment by his peers, meaning not the worthy or those not yet ennobled, but "the peers of the realm." ** * Perhaps Oedipus and Akhnaton should have been entitled "The Oedipus Complex Unmasked, ...

... the house of the Lord his God. And when they came to Hilkiah the high priest, they delivered the money that was brought into the house of God...and when they brought out the money that was brought into the house of the Lord, Hilkiah the priest found the book of the law of the Lord given by Moses. And Hilkiah answered and said to Shaphan the scribe, I have found the book of the law in the house of the Lord. And Hilkiah delivered the book to Shaphan." [1 ] If we consider that the Temple had been devoted to heathen cults during several decades, it appears highly improbable that the book of the ...
68. Were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History X:2 (July 1988) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom?David Yorkstetter David Fry has come up with an interesting thesis. He puts Abraham, Joseph, and Moses in the Old Kingdom. He places Abraham in the middle of the First Dynasty. He then positions Joseph in the Third Dynasty and early Fourth Dynasty. Finally, he theorizes that Moses should be placed at the end of the Sixth Dynasty. Abraham One of the supports Fry uses to place Abraham in the First Dynasty is that Josephus claims Abraham taught the Egyptians mathematics and astronomy. That would necessitate Abraham's ...
69. Old Testament Tales (OTT) – Introduction [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Salkeld Professor Thomas Thompson, an American archaeologist and biblical scholar, wrote that the first ten books of the Old Testament are almost certainly works of fiction, and lack any supporting archaeological or historical evidence: the Israelite sojourn in Egypt, the Exodus and the Conquest of Canaan never took place, and: it is out of the question that Moses – or Saul, David and Solomon, described as kings in the Bible – could have existed' (The Independent on Sunday [IOS], 28.3 .03). A few days later the Independent published a letter from an Anglican clergyman saying: All this has been known for the past 100 years, so why ...

... at the same time touched its eyes, his sight was restored. (10) After the sinners of Asher, those of Manasseh made their confession they had desecrated the Sabbath. The Ephraimites owned to having sacrificed their children to Moloch. Finally, the Benjamites said: "We desired to prove whether the law emanated from God or from Moses." At the command of God these sinners and all their possessions were burnt with fire at the brook of Pishon. Only the Amorite books and the idols of precious stones remained unscathed. Neither fire nor water could do them harm. Kenaz decided to consecrate the idols to God, but a revelation came to him, saying: ...
