291. Ankylosis in the Chronology of Reconstructed History? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... "astronomical" Assyrian anchor and the Ptolemaic calculations, may or may not lead to moving the Eponym and King Lists to a greater or lesser extent. Some changes do need to be made, for the "astronomical" chronology has been accepted as an absolute frame of reference (against which to reconstruct Egyptian history from the Libyans to the Persians) by Velikovsky himself [4 ], and which is obviously providing some difficulties to a number of his followers [5 ]. The Eponym Lists, supposedly counting year after year, may act as an astronomical straitjacket - swinging the earth axis in one instant from spring into next winter might shorten an eponym's year to a few months ...
292. Fragments of Myths of Culture Heroes [Books]
... their agricultural and horticultural knowledge to good account there. Indeed, many myths tell of deluge survivors planting gardens, which, naturally, they will have protected by fences. This fence, or wall, made the precious green spot into what the Bactrians called a pairi-daiza, whence the Greek paradeisos, and our Paradise. The mythology of the Persians (Vendidad ii) tells of the culture hero, Yima, that he built such an enclosure (vara) in the mountain refuge in which he weathered the cataclysm which devastated the (lower) rest of the world. A similar state of things can also be inferred from a reference in the Book of Ezra, for instance, ...
293. S.I.S. Spring Meeting, 1983 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and poorly understood episodes in the history of the ancient world. The Peleset are the only members of the invading confederacy whose identity (as the Philistines) is generally agreed upon, a point stressed by James. He was unable to accept Velikovsky's arguments in Peoples of the Sea for putting them in a 4th-century context and identifying them with the Persian armies of Artaxerxes II. Even so, he felt that the Philistines were of crucial importance from an interdisciplinary point of view because of their widespread cultural connections throughout the eastern Mediterranean world, their supposed role in the destructions that ended the Late Bronze Age and their pivotal importance in the historical events and chronology of the Old Testament. Accepted ...
294. History, Proto-history, and Synchronisms [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... between them. In the Old World- the only hemisphere that created full-fledged histories of its own- synchronisms involving all three continents can be established for the sixth century B.C .- but no earlier. The reason for this is that the first tri-continental polity, comprising portions of Europe, Asia, and Africa, was the Achaemenid Persian Empire of that century. (The first bi-continental polity, comprising portions of Asia and Africa, was probably the Assyrian Empire of Esarhaddon and others in the seventh century B.C .) [1 ] The lack of politically grounded intercontinental synchronisms for any period prior to the sixth or seventh centuries B.C . makes all dating ...
295. Heinsohn's Revised Chronology & Lynn Rose's Retrocalculations [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... I bet he has never questioned the accepted chronology. Dendrochronology or C14 dating can't change the basic stratigraphical sequence that's found in the ancient near east. And that sequence shows that beneath the -1st millennium Hellenistic layers are found -2nd millennium "Old Babylonian" strata in Mesopotamia, and "Middle Assyrian" layers in Assyria. Heinsohn identifies both as Persian period, and that brings virtually all of ancient civilization down to under -1200. There is no physical evidence that requires a longer chronology. From: Ev Cochrane (firstname.lastname@example.org) Date: Sun, 16 Mar 1997 11:09:50 -0600 These are very good questions. Although I am not a ...
296. The Answer to Clapham's Question: Revise! [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... After all, inscriptions from Assyria, Babylonia, and Moab provide strong confirmation of the basic accuracy of the chronological framework of Kings- at least from Omri onward. And Herodotus provides independent confirmation of Kings on several points. All that should be non-controversial. I have also argued that a number of independent literary sources- Chinese, Indian, Persian, and Roman- strongly suggest that the Biblical flood was an historical event that took place around 1700 BC, a time frame one can also reach via Biblical genealogies using an estimate of thirty years to a generation.54 The physical evidence suggests that this Flood took place in the Indus Valley and devastated the Harappan Civilization, which most ...
297. Letter to the Editor from Christoph Marx [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... this and other actualistically calculated Procrustean dates may, however, cause Velikovskian events analysis to be applied to reconstructing a sphere of history which not only covers the most crucial hinge in mankind's psychic development,3 but the chronology which has also been accepted as an absolute frame of reference (against which to reconstruct Egyptian history from the Libyans to the Persians) by Velikovsky himself,4 and which is obviously providing some difficulties for a number of his followers.5 Considering that even eponym lists, supposedly counting year after year,6 may act as an astronomical straitjacket-- winging the earth's axis in one instant from spring into next winter might shorten an eponym's year to a few months ...
298. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... own that later passed into the art of Persia. It is also an artistic style that has analogies with that known from Medinet Habu in Egypt of the age of Ramses III. This art form seems to have been brought by so-called "sea peoples" and was utilized by Velikovsky in Peoples of the Sea in an attempt to establish a Persian connection. The style was perhaps brought by Aegean and Anatollan refugees from the 8th century earth shocks described in Worlds in Collision. The Hittite-Urartu connection may pertain, but equally the style has analogies with the art of Early Minoan Crete. It may therefore serve to provide a Hurrian-Carian identification at some time in the future. Its establishment in ...
299. Review: The Gentile Times Reconsidered: Chronology and Christ's Return, by Carl Olof Jonsson [Journals] [SIS Review]
... again with particular attention to showing that the destruction of Jerusalem was in 587/6BC. His inquiry here is wide-ranging and interdisciplinary but with the focus on astronomical texts, which are the most likely to lead to an absolute dating. Jonsson summarises the basic situation as follows:'... Babylon was captured by the armies of the Persian king Cyrus in 539BCE, an acknowledged, reliable date. In the first year of his reign over Babylon, Cyrus issued an edict which permitted the Jews to return to Jerusalem. (2 Chronicles 36:22, 23; Ezra 1: 1-4) According to the Watch Tower Society this ended the seventy-year period mentioned at Jeremiah 25 ...
300. The Problem of Adjusting the Date Limits of the Archaeological Ages to Meet Velikovsky's Revision [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to revising the chronology of the late dynasties of Egypt, it was the concensus of opinion that an alternate method must be found for accomplishing this which would leave Rameses II and his dynasty in the 8th century. A proposal was offered as a substitute which meets this demand and which would place dynasty XXII following the fall of Egypt to the Persians in 525B.C . This latter concept, known as the Glasgow chronology, was rejected immediately by the writer, and has apparently been abandoned subsequently by its authors. Since this is the case, the reasons for its necessary rejection need not be reviewed here. If Velikovsky's thesis as given in Ages in Chaos is to survive, ...
