201. Sothic Dating and Historical Reconstructions [Articles]
... I think it has been resolved, because I found, partly by accident, that the Middle Kingdom needs to be lowered by such a large number of years, and also because of some other things that have happened, especially Gunnar Heinsohn's decision to move the First Babylonian Dynasty down by a great number of years and equate it with the Persian Empire. The First Babylonian Dynasty is also full of stuff about the Moon that is very bad for Velikovsky-29-1/2 day months, with alternating 29 and 30 days. Now that is safely down in the second half of the first millennium, and it does no further damage. Now that was not Gunnar's reason for doing that. ...
202. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... important oil and gas reservoirs of the shield to welt complex. The most prolific oil basins of the world are those associated with the postulated major long-thrust systems described previously, namely the Mississippi valley- Gulf of Mexico system and the extensive and complicated overthrust systems comprising the great oil fields surrounding the Red, Mediterranean, Caspian and Black seas and the Persian Gulf. The southwestern USA thrust system responsible for the fragmentation in the Basin and Range province possibly contributed to the California oil basins. Another similar thrust system apparently generated the oil and coal provinces of Borneo, Sumatra, Java and New Guinea. These great oil and gas regions are most likely associated with sudden deep burial of marine and ...
203. The Reflective Canopy Model and the Mytho-historical Record [Journals] [Aeon]
... of the sun god's real celestial identity. The mytho-historical record still insists, and repeatedly so, that this sun god either occupied, or was inextricably connected with, the north celestial pole. Nowhere, to my knowledge, is it stated that this sun god occupied the zenith- except in the minds of mythologists. Muslim representation of the Persian Saturn who, in earlier times, was as-signed as the guardian of Gah- "the great one of the middle of the sky"- i.e . the Pole Star. Vishnu, who placed Dhruva, the Pole Star, in its station, which station was said to have formerly been his. 6. The Terrestrial ...
204. Confessions Of A Philosophical Velikovskian [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... false. I will not say anything further here about Earth in Upheaval, except to remark that, although its conclusions are now widely accepted among paleontologists, credit is seldom given to Velikovsky for this. As one reads at length in Worlds in Collision, descriptions of catastrophes consisting of combustion or deluge18 are found among the Greeks, Hindus, Persians, Chinese, Incas, Aztecs, and Mayas.19 Still less would you expect the phenomena to be described in very similar terms; thus the reddening of the world and its waters is recorded by Mayas, Egyptians, Israelites, Greeks, Babylonians, Finns and Tartars20 a hail of stones by Israelites, Egyptians, Mexicans, and ...
205. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... said If you recognise yourself, then you will recognise the god'. Bob Porter had alternative suggestions why these religions arose. Just as Mahomet, living amongst polytheism, concocted Islam from Christianity and Judaism, so Z. etc. were influenced by Jewish exiles, also living amongst polytheism, reaching India and perhaps Greece and China via the Persian Empire. AS said that the important thing is not the monotheistic religion as such but the source of power. In the religion of the East as stated by Z, there is no room for violence or depriving a person from freedom of choice, or the threat to kill him, to make him accept monotheism. People should find ...
206. The Emerging Revision of Ancient History: Recent Research [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... , at 720 BC, and Nebuchadnezzar's destruction of Jerusalem, at 587 BC. It could not be done. Etzion retains the 720 BC start for the Iron Age, but gives it a full 550 years to run. He identifies Iron I as the Assyrian period, from 720 BC to 587 BC; Iron II as the Babylonian and Persian periods in Israel, from 587 BC to 333 BC; and Iron III as the period of Greek dominance starting with Alexander the Great, continuing through the conflicts between the Syrian Seleucid and Egyptian Ptolemaic empires, and ending with the Hasmonean revolt against Syria, all from 333 BC to 167 BC. Radical as this approach is, it ...
207. Heracles as Cross-Dresser [Journals] [Aeon]
... ."  It is our opinion that Inanna's imbuing of Dumuzi with luminous splendor or "glory" is fundamentally analogous to Hera's conferring "glory" on Heracles, both tracing to a spectacular interaction between Venus and Mars overhead.  The investiture of the king with the "glory" of Venus is apparent in ancient Persian kingship rites thousands of years later. There it is the goddess Anahita- specifically identified with the planet Venus- who is intimately associated with investiture rites. In the Aban Yast, for example, Anahita is invoked as the "granter of sovereignty and glory."  The same planet-goddess is credited with giving strength to the ...
208. Night of the Gods: The Axis and the Universe-Tree [Books]
... xxii, 2. And on this side of the River and on that was a Tree of Life bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations." Here we have the heavens-river besides, and the number twelve is clearly celestially zodiacal. In the Persian Moslem legends, Joseph (Yusuf), in his dream, fixes his staff in the ground (see " The Rod and Rhabdomancy," supra), and his brothers stick-in theirs around his ; whereupon Yusuf beholds his staff growing skyward, and budding forth branches so bright that they light up the interval between tile East and the ...

210. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 2 [Books]
... and saved themselves by being changed into the shapes of wild beasts! Whereas these Egyptians (15) are the very people that appear to have never, in all the past ages, had one day of freedom, no, not so much as from their own lords. For I will not reproach them with relating the manner how the Persians used them, and this not once only, but many times, when they laid their cities waste, demolished their temples, and cut the throats of those animals whom they esteemed to be gods; for it is not reasonable to imitate the clownish ignorance of Apion, who hath no regard to the misfortunes of the Athenians, or ...
