281. Worship Of The Morning Star, Part 1 Venus Ch.9 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... of heaven, Whose name is honoured in the habitations of men, That is my fame. "Queen of heaven above and beneath" let be spoken, That is my fame. The mountains I overwhelm altogether, That is my fame. The Morning-Evening Star Ishtar was called also "the star of lamentation."(50) The Persian Mithra, the same as Tistrya, descended from the heavens and "let a stream of fire flow toward the earth," "signifying that a blazing star, becoming in some way present here below, filled our world with its devouring heat."(51) In Aphaca in Syria fire fell from the sky, and it ...

... 1975 Period of the Chaldean domination from 612 B.C . to Cambyses' invasion of Egypt in 525 B.C .

... the flood."(2 ) The great discharges of interplanetary force are commemorated in the traditions, legends, and mythology of all the peoples of the world. The godZeus of the Greeks, Odin of the Icelanders, Ukko of the Finns, Perun of the Russian pagans, Wotan (Woden) of the Germans, Mazda of the Persians, Marduk of the Babylonians, Shiva of the Hindusis pictured with lightning in his hand and described as the god who threw his thunderbolt at the world overwhelmed with water and fire. Similarly, many psalms of the Scriptures commemorate the great discharges. "Then. the earth shook and trembled; the foundations also of the hills moved and ...
284. "America B.C." and the Revised Chronology [Journals] [Kronos]
... three peoples as Indo-European or, more precisely, as having been dominated by elites speaking Indo-European languages.(1 ) The Mitanni, whose name may have been no more than an early variant of the word Mede, were almost certainly Indo-lranian. Within that group, their language was probably Iranian, related to that of the Scythians, the Persians, and the modern Kurds. The Hittites and Lydians, however, spoke languages now called Anatolian. (As a linguistic term, Anatolian refers solely to the Indo-European languages peculiar to Asia Minor. It excludes not only non-lndo-European languages such as Hattic and Urartian but also Indo-European languages whose vernacular centers lay outside Asia Minor, such as Median ...

... the destruction by water, the destruction by fire, the destruction by wind," but that there are seven ages, each of which is separated from the previous one by a world catastrophe.(7 ) Reference to ages and catastrophes is found in Avesta (Zend-Avesta), the sacred scriptures of Mazdaism, the ancient religion of the Persians.(8 ) "Bahman Yast," one of the books of Avesta, counts seven world ages or millennia.(9 ) Zarathustra (Zoroaster, the prophet of Mazdaism, speaks of "the signs, wonders, and perplexity which are manifested in the world at the end of each millennium."(10) The ...
286. Before The Chair Of Jupiter. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... everyone? Its movement is not spectacular; once in twelve years it circles the sky. It is a brilliant planet, but it does not dominate the heavens. Yet Apollo- the sun- the dispenser of light and warmth, was only a secondary deity." After explaining that Marduk was the Babylonian name of the planet Jupiter and Mazda its Persian name, Einstein expressed his wonder. Then I told him that in the Iliad it is said that Zeus can pull all the other gods and the Earth with his chain, being stronger than all of them together; and that an old commentary (by Eustathius, a Byzantine scholar) states that this means the planet Jupiter is stronger ...
... , and in Lincolnshire, usually a dry county, a stop was put to all harvesting and a large quantity of corn was ruined. Wales escaped this deluge as also the west generally. October 24, 1925, was the date when a severe earthquake, accompanied by the worst cyclonic storm within living memory in that region, swept the Persian Gulf. A Bushire telegram to the, Karachi, reported that 7000 persons were killed and the pearl fishery fleet was almost totally destroyed. Evidently a number of meteors crossed the earth's path because almost simultaneously a tremendous cyclone struck the Bay of Genoa, executing severe damage, and a tornado in the Atlantic, off the east coast of ...
288. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Review]
... While Velikovsky recognises the link between Mentuemhat and the Ethiopian King Tahaka, he ignores the fact that the same singular character Mentuemhat was the indisputable contemporary of Psamtek Wahibre, the generally accepted identification of Psammetichus I. On Velikovsky's own reconstruction, Seti I (of the conventional XIXth Dynasty) is identified with Psammetichus, while Psamtek is removed to the Persian period and the 5th century BC. Similarly, Velikovsky seeks several comparisons between the styles of the XVIIIth Dynasty and Saite (XXVIth-Dynasty) Egypt. Saite art is the characteristic style associated with Psamtek Wahibre and Neko Wahibre, and if Velikovsky wishes to remove these rulers to the 5th century, then the two styles would be separated by a ...
289. The Third Degree. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... Equally displaced are the positions (stations) of the new moon and the distances our satellite covers from one new moon to another. My explanation of these various systems of celestial motions and positions was in harmony with what is found in the lore of other peoples of antiquity and was reflected in the calendar reforms of the Chinese, Hindus, Persians, Israelites, Egyptians, Mayans, and others- namely, that these systems represent true observations at various epochs, before and after the repeated disturbances of the seventh to eighth century B.C . I consider the parts of Worlds in Collision, pages 120-25,313-59, dealing with the calendar observances and reforms the most valuable from the ...
290. The Queen of Sheba and the Song of Songs [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Songs, the beautiful and enigmatic love-song whose authorship is ascribed to King Solomon. It is part of the legend of Solomon and the Queen of Sheba that they had a love-relationship. Can it be that the Song of Songs is an expression of this relationship? Would such an hypothesis solve any of the puzzles and obscurities of the Song? Persian drawing of Bilkis, Queen of Sheba, about 1600 AD (British Museum copyright) There is no explicit mention in the historical account of I Kings 10 of a love-affair between Solomon and the Queen of Sheba. There is, however, the dark hint, "And King Solomon gave unto the Queen of Sheba all her desire. ...
