241. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Journals] [Horus]
... archaeologist friend of mine, Norman Totten, and urged him to read the book too. He did. He called me back and said "I'll have to come and talk to you about that book, and he came - and began to point out various defective features in the parallels between the - oh, a- some kind of Persian soldiers or something that Velikovsky was equating to some of the soldiers of one of the Pharaohs - I think it was - what, now - it was so long ago - and soon I realized that this was not going to be a simple matter of convincing Norman Totten to the Sea Peoples. I began to look at the matter ...
242. Coldwater Carbonate Sedimentation [Journals] [Catastrophist Geology]
... Geology, University of Tasmania Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. In sedimentology exists a warm water carbonate paradigm', which incorporates the convictions 1) that shallow marine carbonates were only formed in tropical to subtropical warm surface waters supersaturated in CaC03, by analogy with Recent carbonate formation on the Great Bahama Bank, the Great Barrier Reef, in the Persian Gulf and in Shark Bay; 2) that most carbonate sediments are eventually destroyed in cold seas; 3) that the predominance of low-Mg calcite in ancient limestones results from the transformation of metastable warm-water aragonite and Mg-calcite to low-Mg calcite, involving the action of fresh phreatic and vadose waters. Contrary to these concepts, carbonate can presently be ...

244. Philologos | The Legends of the Jews: Volume IV [Books]
... part. The king of Persia was very ill, and his physician told him he could be cured by nothing but the milk of a lioness. The king accordingly sent a deputation bearing rich presents to Solomon, the only being in the world who might in his wisdom discover means to obtain lion's milk. Solomon charged Benaiah to fulfil the Persian king's wish. Benaiah took a number of kids, and repaired to a lion's den. Daily he threw a kid to the lioness, and after some time the beasts became familiar with him, and finally he could approach the lioness close enough to draw milk from her udders. On the way back to the Persian king the physician ...
245. Finding the Limits of Chronological Revision [Journals] [SIS Review]
... emerging evidence that finally proved fatal to the Glasgow Chronology? With Ramesses III reigning around 700 BC, the outstanding question we faced was how to accommodate the 21st-23rd Dynasties. Our original thought, as Geoffrey Gammon explained in a panel discussion at the Glasgow Conference , was that these dynasties might be made contemporary with the Saite and Persian periods and thus be allowed to continue down to about 300 BC. He stressed, however, that this was no more than a hypothesis' and, as research continued to test the hypothesis, it became apparent that it would not work. All kinds of solutions were tried: overlapping dynasties, overlapping reigns to shorten dynasties, looking ...
246. The Hyksos (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... of the lepers, Osarsiph, had changed his name to Moses. This confused story reflects the Assyrian conquest of Egypt, when Sennacherib and Esarhaddon invaded Palestine and Egypt "with a great host of Assyrians and Arabs". The people of Jerusalem never conquered Egypt. The first wave of anti-Semitism in the east was spread much later in the Persian Empire by the vizier, Haman, "the Agagite, the Jews' enemy".146 Haman, who was of the seed of Agog, the Amalekite,147 conspired to destroy the Jewish population in Persia and Media. We may imagine that the traditions of Haman's house were likely to inspire this hatred. These traditions told how ...
247. The Shrine of Baal-Zephon [Journals] [Aeon]
... appears to be of tectonic origin as indicated by its straight and sharply lineated morphology... and also by the elevated position of a few segments along it. One of these is the structural dome of Mount Casius... Hence, it is assumed that this structural ridge was elevated to above the post-Flandrian sea level sometime prior to Persian times (that is, 2700 to 3000 years B. P.)" (105) Elsewhere in the same article, however, Neev and Friedman state: "The data presented above from the western and eastern margins of the Sinai subplate indicate two phases of tectonic activity that probably occurred at roughly the same time: the first ...
248. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... on ancient epigraphy, writes that there can be little or no doubt as to its authenticity' (p . 42). However, the danger of forgeries must not be overlooked (C &CR 1998:2 , p. 36), especially as these two dateable seal impressions may block the downdating of their epigraphic style into the Persian period, as I have advocated in this journal and also in the new JACF. I believe the New Chronology requires this downdating and that it is further suggested by the next item below. BAR also reported (pp. 46-9, 66) the appearance of a seal of Baalis, an Ammonite king, apparently the one mentioned in ...
249. Tunguska-Type Impacts Over the Pacific Basin Around the Year 1178 AD [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of climate, with winters much colder and snowier than usual, the snow cover probably not melting during the summer, thereby making the normal pastoral life almost impossible. An indication that this was the case and that the poor weather conditions lasted for about two generations, can be found in the quoted work of Ata Malik al Juvaini. This Persian author, born in a Khorasan family, became governor of Persia after the conquest by the Mongolians. He wrote a monumental history of the Mongolian conquest around 1260, after the Alamut fortress, the stronghold of the Ismailites (the Assassins), was taken in 1256. (The fortress had one of the greatest libraries of medieval times ...
250. The Road to Iron: 8th and 7th Century Metallurgy and the Decline of Egyptian Power [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... no Egyptian would pollute himself, or desire to learn. The great power ambitions of the 26th dynasty, particularly Necho II, who defeated Judah at Megiddo in 608 B.C . and contested Nebuchadnezzar for control of the Fertile Crescent at Carchemish in 605, demanded an iron military technology. "Not even from later times- of the Persians, Ptolemies or Romans- has there remained so much iron in Egypt as from these Greek settlements of the Saite period."42 This dependence by the 26th dynasty on Greek technology throws a most important light on the warm welcome accorded Greek travelers and scholars in Egypt at that time. It was in the era of Necho II that ...
