... Geschichte, iv, 227ff.; and "Appett," in the Nationalzeitung, Beilage of Oct. 5, 1906. . CHAPTER VII THE INDO-IRANIAN UNIVERSE IN any attempt to determine the earliest world-view of the East Aryans the safest method is doubtless to begin with the oldest conception of the universe definitely set forth in Hindu or in Old Persian literature, and from this to work backward and upward in the interpreta tion of any cosmographical data presented only incidentally and fragmentarily in sources of an earlier date. Pursuing this course, one must first give attention to the world-concept set forth in the Surya-Siddhanta, a Sanskrit treatise mentioned with other astronomical works at least fourteen hundred years ago. ...
232. Mitcham Replies [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... : I see no difficulty in making the dynasty of the Sea Peoples contemporary with Dynasty I at Babylon. The Synchronous Chronicle does label these as kings of Babylon, but they were kings of the Sea Peoples ruling the Sea Peoples by permission of the kings of Babylon. This situation is not at all strange in ancient times. Manetho has Persian kings listed as Egyptian kings during the Persian period. Dr. Courville does not explain why he accepts the Sealand rulers' receiving the rank of "King of Babylon" within the SC if in fact they never held Babylon. By doing so he declares the SC wrong in terming the Sealanders as "Kings of Babylon." He ...

234. The Land(s) of Punt [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the cargo, as Velikovsky suggests! Although the Puntites were called "The Bearded Ones" by the Egyptians, this designation has never, to my knowledge, been applied to the inhabitants of Palestine. The term "God's Land" which Velikovsky thought was related to Palestine was not reserved for this area. For example, Elam on the Persian Gulf means God's Land (Haltamti: Hal=land, tamti=spacious Lord).(17) For the geographic and other reasons cited above, it is difficult if not impossible, in my opinion, to accept the identity of Punt and Palestine. An acceptable solution to the problem of the location of Punt, the land ...
235. The Bubastite Portal: Evidence Against Velikovsky's Placement of Ramesses II in the Late 7th Century [Journals] [SIS Review]
... kings of the 19th Dynasty in Egypt were in fact one and the same as Manetho's kings of the 26th Saite Dynasty. He identified Nechao I with Menpehtire Ramesses I, Psammetichus I with Menmaatre Seti (II) and Nechao II with Usimare-setepenre Ramesses II. He also equated Nectanebo I with Ramesses III and placed the latter during the time of Persian dominance of the Near East in the 4th century BC. In spite of earlier criticisms of Velikovsky's arrangement for these kings, based on both genealogical and historical evidence, there still remain advocates of this part of his chronological revision. I intend here, therefore, to provide a third argument which, to me at least, appears to ...

(2001) "Ramessides, Medes and Persians" by Emmet J. Sweeney The work that follows should be regarded as simultaneously fulfilling two functions. On the one hand, it represents the completion of the task Immanuel Velikovsky set for himself in the Ages in Chaos series, an endeavour which spectacularly initiated the reconstruction of ancient history, but which left the task half-completed and the reader, as it were, dangling in mid-air. On the other hand, ...
237. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... 94] The archetype of the double helix merges here with a large class of depictions of gods surrounded by two serpents. At Gournia, a Minoan site, the idol of a goddess was found being entwined by snakes  and numerous images exist of gods and goddesses holding two serpents in their hands. In the Shahnameh, the Persian ogre Dah-ka is represented as having two serpents, one on each shoulder. Coyajee compares this image to the two serpents wound round a staff.  And in Mexico, Huitzilopochtli's image was sur-rounded by serpents while his sceptre was in the shape of one, and his statue rested on four vermiform caryatids.  The ...
238. The Albrecht/Glueck-Aharoni/Rothenberg Confrontation [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... , with no names in the Timna temple to fill the vacancy. Apart from the Timna evidence, his method for condensing the late history and chronology of Egypt is unacceptable for a variety of reasons. Evidences for the continuity between dynasties XVIII and XIX have been disregarded. His proposed identification for the Peleset, or Sea Peoples, with the Persians is untenable.49 The same may be said for his proposed identification of the 7th century Hittites with the Chaldeans. The bases for assumed identifications of the dynasty XIX kings with those of dynasty XXVI are faulty and altogether inadequate. A similar conclusion on the unacceptability of Velikovsky's later work was apparently the consensus of scholars attending the Glasgow Conference ...
239. 1421: The Year China Discovered America (Book Review) [Journals] [Aeon]
... an unprecedented fleet of ships to explore the entire globe in 1421, to bring veneration and tribute to his sovereign majesty, the Son of Heaven. At this time Europe was relatively unaware of any lands in the Western oceanic expanse and traded overland to Middle Eastern and Asiatic marketplaces, paying baksheesh and bribes to the wealthy and avaricious Mongol and Persian potentates along the Silk Road, while complaining over the ever-increasing prices in such trades and looking for alternate passages. This was a very old complaint, as the Roman statesman Seneca in the First Century ad had also bemoaned the high costs of goods and spices from the Orient and predicted that another route across the Western expanse beyond the Pillars ...
240. The Hermes Connection [Journals] [Aeon]
... to Jupiter (Zeus), was the two-faced Janus Bifrons who also wore the broad-brimmed hat, the petasus. This Janus evolved into a solar deity and became associated with the rising and setting of the Sun. This "solar" duality also appears in the light-dark combination of the Egyptian Horus-Set symbolism, similar in most respects to the ancient Persian light-dark duality of Ahura Mazda-Ahriman. But, where a bright Horus is associated with a reincarnation (or resurrection) of his progenitor Osiris, as a Saturn/Kronos figure, he is often portrayed as appearing brooding (or saturnine) and thus somewhat less than bright or effulgent. And, one will invariably find that shared attributes are ...
