91. A Glance at Compartive Mythology by Isaac Vail [Books]
... nations we find two features standing forth prominently: first, the all-pervading idea of solar deities and heroes: ' and second, dark, opposing forces represented by serpents, dragons, or demons. Around these, minor features naturally group themselves. In Greek mythology there is the story of Hercules, too familiar to bear repetition; but the Persian counterpart of this hero must not be overlooked, for he is the mighty Rustem, figuring as the chief character in the great Persian epic, the immortal Shah Nameh. The labors of Hercules are twelve, while those of Rustem are seven, the last and crowning act being the slaughter of the White Demon of Mazinderan, a monster ...
92. Heinsohn's Revised Chronology [Journals] [Aeon]
... already had adapted them to biblical chronology. (2 ) Because of belief in the antiquity of Abraham, the beginnings of Egyptian and Mesopotamian civilization were stretched back to the beginning of the third millennium BCE and later scholars ignored the testimony of ancient authors who knew only four pre-Hellenistic periods in Mesopotamia: early Chaldean, Assyrian, Chaldean, and Persian. However, there is clear evidence that, without any influence from biblical chronology, the ancients (especially the Greeks) believed that civilization had very ancient beginnings. Herodotus, the fifth century BCE Greek historian, stated that while he was visiting Egypt priests informed him that three hundred forty-one kings had reigned from the beginning of the Egyptian ...
93. Bringing Light to a Dark Age [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney Ramessides, Medes, and Persians Sweeney 15 CHAPTER 2 BRINGING LIGHT TO A DARK AGE A Problem and a Solution The fall of the Assyrian/Hyksos Empire saw the emergence from its ruins of a number of regional powers. Amongst these were the 18th Dynasty of Egypt, the Mitanni (Medish) Empire, and the Hittite (Lydian) Empire. Alongside these newly emergent states the present writer also places the Hebrew monarchies, whose early kings, Saul and David, actually participated in the destruction of Hyksos/Assyrian power in Palestine and Syria. Thus we hold broadly by the chronology outlined by Immanuel Velikovsky ...
94. Jonsson's 'Gentile Times' (Letter) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... copy, I read the book with growing enthusiasm. As stated in my Silver Jubilee (now Internet) paper on the history of revisionism, I much admired his paper published in C&CR IX (1987). His references to the evidence of thousands of ancient cuneiform business tablets endorsing the conventional chronology of the Neo-Babylonians and the early Persian Kings in particular seemed very important. Whilst Lynn Rose made some specific comments on the astronomical considerations, for me the extensive information about these documents is the book's highlight. I would strongly endorse Rose's commendation of this book, especially for the information concerning these texts. Put simply, there are tens, and often hundreds, of different ...
95. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 6 ]. The old religion became associated with abominable cult practices, high altars, stone circles, and human sacrifice. The opposition was demonised and history was rewritten - as happened after the introdction of Christianity in Europe and Islam in Asia. It seems that an intellectual shift occurred during the Exile, possibly as a result of influence from Persian Zoroastrianism [5 ]. Thompson takes this to the extreme [7 ] but it is clear that the Exile marked a watershed in the development of Judaism. Jerusalem became the focus and site of the temple. History was rewritten to provide Jerusalem with a role in the original state of Israel, a united kingdom' in order to ...
96. Who Were the Neo-Assyrian Kings? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... a few or even several coincidences of story and events, however compelling these may be. To identify one king with another, every piece of information which applies to one must, by definition, apply to the other, or else it must be clearly shown to apply to neither. Whatever the merits or demerits of lining up Assyrian and Persian rulers, the ones chosen make a chronological jump which seems to me to have serious consequences for the historical links with Israel, Judah and other neighbouring and even further off states. Perhaps Sweeney has considered these, in which case he will be able to answer the following questions: (a ) which Assyrian/Persian ruler defeated Israel ...
97. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Included in this group is the well known seal impression of Berekyahu son of Neriyahu, the scribe' (No. 417 in the Corpus), i.e . Jeremiah's scribe Baruch son of Neriah (Jer 36:4 ). If this really is a forgery it removes one obstacle to down-dating most of these seals into the Persian period. A well known inscription from Egypt, which refers to Israel, is Shoshenq's Karnak Temple victory scene wherein he lists captured places in Israel. Prof. Kitchen has recently proposed that Nos. 105-106 in the list probably read The Heights of David' (reported in BAR Jan/Feb 1999, pp. 34-5). This ...
98. Forum: Do the Early Middle Ages Survive Only as a Sacred Cow? C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Christian chronology as a guiding principle, which can be easily shown, as the great compilers of the early second millennium dated both from the Hegira and AD. They gave us the inventions and discoveries of the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries of which we have no contemporary reports. Our response regarding Islamic history is as follows: all the Persian conquests from 612 were reported from 634 as Arabic conquests. The Persians attacked Byzantium from 612, conquered Jerusalem and the Holy Cross in 614 and reached Egypt and Tripoli in 615 - this is the conventional story. The loss of the cross is a reason for Byzantium to invent additional time in which - with the help of an angelic ...
99. On Language, Art, And Religion. Part I Ch.4 (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... scenes show borrowing from Asia and, on the other hand, the selection of the motifs, the conception and realization of the subject, assure that the Assyrian scenes were not borrowed from Egypt. The motifs were developed in an original way by the Assyrians, and if there was some adoption in them it was from the Elamite (early Persian), not Egyptian motifs. The hunting scenes of Ramses III have disclosed upon detailed examination their dependence on Asiatic motifs; but as soon as we disclaim the twelfth century for Ramses III we are no longer beset by the difficulty of explaining how twelfth-century motifs could have been borrowed from scenes created in the seventh. Speleers was also struck ...
100. In Defence of Higher Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and ended in about the 7th century [6 ]. Since there are ample indications that the Middle Kingdom of Egypt and the First Babylonian Dynasty were contemporary, or at least overlapped [7 ], my lowering of the Middle Kingdom led me to endorse an earlier claim by Gunnar Heinsohn that the First Babylonian Dynasty needs to be lowered to Persian times and is, in fact, to be identified with the Persian Empire [8 ]. In this, Hammurabi would be the same as Darius the Great, Ammisaduqa would be the same as Artaxerxes III Ochos [9 ] and so on. Heinsohn based these conclusions mainly on archaeological and stratigraphical considerations, which I tend to see ...
