... . In other words: even if the individual Kaweh/Kavag should have been "invented" by Firdausi, the notion of the Deus Faber and Celestial Smith as the disposer and guardian of kingship [n13 To repeat: the "Lord of the Triakontaeteris," the period of thirty years, i.e ., the Egyptian and Persian "Royal Jubilee" (Saturn's sidereal revolution), is Ptah-Hephaistos.], as the original and legitimate owner of the "water of life," [n14 Also of the intoxicating beverage replacing it; Soma belonged to Tvasthri; Irish Goibniu brewed the ale which made the Tuatha De Danann immortal, and the beer of the Caucasian ...
... applied for permission to search for the remains of the Ark on Mount Ararat. They were impatiently denied access by the Soviet authorities, who suspected espionage with a CIA cover name. No one, they figured, could be that simpleminded. The simplemindedness obviously extends to the researchers of the Sumerological Institutes, who went looking for Eridu in the Persian Gulf, and for the dwelling of the divine barmaid Siduri on the shores of the Mediterranean. But it is evident that the events of the Flood in the Era Epic, however vivid their language, apply unmistakably to events in the austral heavens and to nothing else. 324 It becomes evident that all the adventures of Gilgamesh, even ...
273. The Birth and Odyssey of Halley's Comet: From 2484 B.C. to the Present Time [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... a tradition that Daniel was the mentor of Zoroaster, who soon thereafter, in Persia, founded a religion involving celestial or cosmic themes. The seventh cycle or orbit of Halley's Comet following the 544 B.C . perihelion was the one of 11 B.C .[ 2 ] This was the time (a coincidence?) the Persian Magi trekked to Jerusalem and Bethlehem seeking the birth of a baby destined to be revered. According to Chinese astronomical records, Halley's Comet had its perihelion on or about October 8, 11 B.C . On that occasion its fluorescent tail, perhaps 100 million miles long, glittered from about September 1 through mid December. Because the ...
274. Ras Shamra (Ages in Chaos) [Velikovsky]
... in an alphabetic script. Their cuneiform could not be an ideographic or syllabic script, for a syllabic script like Akkadian uses hundreds of different signs, but alphabetic script only a few; and in this third script there were only thirty different characters. An example of the simplification of the cuneiform script was already known to the scholars: the Persians in the sixth century had used cuneiform for an alphabet of thirty-six characters.24 The bright idea came simultaneously to more than one scholar25 that it might be ancient Hebrew written in cuneiform. An attempt to substitute Hebrew letters for cuneiform signs was successful, and before the scholarly world were tablets in a legible language. Some of the texts ...
275. Disarranged Months, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... phases must have been of nine days' duration. It i s of interest, therefore, to read that in many sagas dealing with the moon, the number nine is used in measures of time.1 A series of scholars found that nine days was for a while a time period of many ancient peoples: the Hindus, the Persians,2 the Babylonians,3 the Egyptians,4 and the Chinese.5 In religious traditions, literature, and astrological works, seven days and ni ne days compete as the measure of the month's quarter. In the time of the Homeric epics, the nine-day week became prevalent in the Greek world. The seven-day week and the ...
276. The Seventh Century And The Dark Ages. Ch.3 In Fear And Trembling (Mankind in Amnesia) [Velikovsky]
... heard at random at the gates of the rabbinical schools of Medina, and this was confused in his mind- Miriam, sister of Moses, was for him the same as Mary, mother of Jesus, and Jesus the same as Joshua, son of Nun, who carried on the conquest of Canaan. Haman, the Persian vizier, became a vizier of the Pharaoh of the Exodus. But his message was of mountains moving and of nature revolting, and of life extinguishing for unbelievers when moral laws are broken down: They [the unbelievers] think the Day of Judgement is far off: but We see it near at hand. Are ...
277. Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . (Not mentioned is Taylor's variation of this idea - forthcoming publication of the 1995 Egyptology congress.) Hezekiah's Tunnel A surprise development on Hezekiah's Tunnel' was a proposal in Biblical Archaeologist (1996 pp. 138-149) to redate it by about 600 years to the Hasmoneans! I had already suggested downdating the tunnel by 200-300 years into the Persian period and attributing an older tunnel, the Siloam Channel', to Hezekiah (SIS Study Group Report, C&CW 1995:2 p. 6; ISIS Occasional Publication III p. 13). The reason for downdating the inscription so much further is that the Hasmoneans used the old Hebrew script (e .g . on ...
278. Acknowledgments (Peoples of the Sea) [Velikovsky]
... became strongly inclined in favour of my reconstructed chronology. The work was read in proofs by Dr. N. B. Millet, curator of the Egyptian Department of the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto, who supplied a list of useful suggestions. Dr. Martin Dickson, professor of Oriental studies at Princeton University, with a special interest in Persian studies, and Professor R.J . Schork, at that time chairman of the Department of Classical Studies at Brooklyn College, also read the proofs and offered strong encouragement to this most revolutionary reconstruction of the history of the period covered in this volume; both of them brought additional proofs from their particular fields. Eddie Schorr, Ph ...

... were first seen in the Peloponnese during the Spartan war with Tegea, in the reign of Anaxandrides - which must be dated around 625 BC . The genealogical evidence stands in agreement. Numerous genealogies of noble Greek families, such as the one linking Pythagoras to Hippasos of Samos, separate the time of the Trojan War from the Persian War by only eight or nine generations - about 200 years, allowing 25 years to a generation . Then there is the evidence from Asia minor linking king Midas (a contemporary of Sargon and Sennacherib) to the Trojan campaign. Greek tradition implies that Midas, of the Golden Touch, was a contemporary of Agamemnon. ...

... position, will quickly come down." Maimonides quotes Ezekiel, Joel, Amos, Micah, Haggai, Habakkuk, and Psalms, and in verses similar to those cited from Isaiah, he finds incidentally a description of "a multitude of locusts," or a speech appropriate for the destruction of Samaria or the "destruction of Medes and Persians," spoken "in metaphors which are intelligible to those who understand the context." In a settled world nothing alters the given order. To sustain this doctrine, the prophecies were translated into metaphors, for, in the opinion of Maimonides, if the world does not change its regimented harmony, true prophets would not declare that ...
