321. More on Jonathan Swift abd the Moons of Mars (Vox Populi) [Journals] [Kronos]
... Virgil where they are described in poetic language (actually, Asaph Hall named the discovered satellites by the very names the flaming trabants of Mars were known by from Homer and Virgil); and it is also not inconceivable that Swift learned of them in some old manuscript dating from the Middle Ages and relating some ancient knowledge from Arabian, or Persian, or Hindu, or Chinese sources. To this day an enormous number of medieval manuscripts have not seen publication and in the days of Newton (Swift published Gulliver's Travels in the year Newton was to die), as we know from Newton's own studies in ancient lore, for every published tome there was a multiplicity of unpublished classical ...
322. Is the Tribe of Dan Homer's Danaanians? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... ark," more specifically, "chest." The early hero of Argos was Perseus. When Perseus was born the tyrant of Argos, Acrissius, put the baby and his mother, Danae into a chest and threw them into the sea. The name Perseus in Greek is not really understood; it has nothing to do with the Persians. On the other hand, in Hebrew "Perseus" is very like the name of the present foreign minister of Israel, Peres, which means "smasher," "breaker," "hero." Later in Perseus' story he goes to Jaffa- a city in the old area of Dan- and kills Medusa by ...
323. The "Herculean Labor" Of Cecilia Gaposchkin. File III (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... less try to prove its universality. So what are the facts? Stewart wrote that if the earth had been disturbed in its rotation, the sea would have erupted, and added: "Tombs dated from the fourth millennium B.C . were not destroyed by ocean floods in Ur of the Chaldees, close as it was to the Persian Gulf, nor in Byblus, on the Mediterranean." In my reply to Stewart in Harper's I wrote: .. . Professor Stewart says that Ur in Chaldea was not overwhelmed by water. Sir Leonard Woolley, who excavated Ur, says: "Eight feet of sediment imply a very great depth of water and the flood which ...
324. The Venus Tablets and Climate [Journals] [SIS Review]
... The first step is to consider the topography and climate of Babylonia, since that is the background against which the observations were made. Topography Babylon was built on the banks of the river Euphrates. It is centrally placed in relation to the trade routes which radiate out to places on the Mediterranean, north to Nineveh, and south to the Persian Gulf. East of Babylon, the Zagros mountains of Persia appear as an abrupt wall, overhanging the low lands, particularly in the south. Summits of over 3,000 metres in height provide an irregular skyline; but they are about 125 kilometres (i .e ., 80 miles) distant from Babylon. When observing conditions ...
325. A Skyscraper And A Sparrow. File II (Stargazers and Gravediggers) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Stargazers]
... There are many other ancient buildings and monuments surviving undamaged in cities which were flourishing before or during the same period- in Greece, Sumeria, India, and elsewhere.... Tombs dated from the fourth millennium B.C . were not destroyed by ocean floods in Ur (of the Chaldees), close as it was to the Persian Gulf, nor in Byblus, on the Mediterranean. For these arguments I needed only to quote from authorities in the field. Although the pyramid is the most stable of all forms- and in my planned history of earlier catastrophes I shall show that these structures were not tombs but royal shelters--earthquakes have been "extremely severe in wrenching, as ...

... ); (iii) that it describes the flight from the rising waters of Egypt (Little dog, the dog star, or Sobk'; fiddler, beetle, hence scarab; cow jumping over moon, symbol of sky, etc.) In view of the recent publication of Peoples of the Sea" with the record of the Persian/Egyptian connection, it is interesting to note that the first known allusion to the rhyme, according to this dictionary, is in ' A lamentable tragedy mixed ful of pleasant mirth, conteyning the life of Cambeses, King of Percia', by Thomas Preston, printed in 1569. The images listed in the rhyme, when considered ...

... chapters. Here I need only say that it is possible that some of the ziqqurats of Southern Mesopotamia, that of Ur of the Chaldees, perhaps, and that of Eridu and a few others- Babylon was certainly never reached by the waters of the Indian Ocean which rushed up the valleys of the rivers Euphrates and Tigris after having formed the Persian Gulf- were never covered by the waters, or, even if they were, were too strong to be destroyed by the flood, and too tall to be buried under the layer of clay which the waters left after their retreat to their present level. The survivors of the great inundation could not find the mud-buried ruins of their low-lying ...

329. Society News [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... well once it was considered that there were Dark Ages there, too. Curiously, C. Torr in 1921 had had a similar scheme for a revised chronology as the one he and David Rohl were working on, and Torr's main motivation had been to explain the Dark Ages of Greece. Further questions were put on Egyptian evidence of the Persian invasion - the evidence Velikovsky had mustered in support of his thesis. In reply Peter James stated that the evidence here wasn't good, and that Velikovsky had actually ignored the stela of Nectanebef, who is thought to have been Nectanebo I. The impact of the Clube and Napier book was next discussed. This book has had little impact ...
330. Letters to the Editor C&AH 3:2 [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... East (additionally distorted by links to the Egyptological Sothic scheme), there is indeed complete historiographic chaos. We would do well to reconstruct this sphere of ancient history first, before attempting revisions of the revision. With this in mind, and collaborating in an 8-semester course of lectures (begun 1980) on Near Eastern history from Neolithic to Persian times, we have developed a Near East data bank based on comparative stratigraphy: 65 sites with archaeological levels described according to conventional chronology are now entered. The computer program, however, permits different linkages and interdependencies for part or all of the data.6 From the cylinder seal work another point, possibly useful in reconstructing contemporary astronomical ...
