331. The Holy Land [Books]
... Universal Monarch Enki. Dilmun, according to Sumerian hymns, is "the place where the sun rises." (21) And many thousands of miles from Mesopotamia the natives of Hawaii recall an ancestral land, Tahiti Na, "our peaceful motherland: the tranquil land of Dawn." (22) So also did the Hindus, Persians, Chinese, and many American Indian tribes conceive the lost paradise as the place of the "sunrise." (23) The World Wheel That Saturn, the primeval sun, first shed its light from the circle of the created "earth" will explain why the celestial land often appears as a great wheel revolving around stationary sun ...
332. Sun, Moon, and Sothis: A Study of Calendars and Calendar Reforms in Ancient Egypt by Lynn E. Rose [Journals] [Aeon]
... and credible chronology, not only of Egypt but of the entire Middle East. And Rose has postulated some rational guidelines toward that end. To finally address Gardiner's lamentation over that little matter of the Middle East, we find enlightened folks like Hammurabi the Lawgiver less of a perspicacious First Dynasty Babylonian and more of a circumspect monarch of the later Persian Empire, with Rose graciously giving both credit and credence to the stratigraphic chronology reconstructed by Gunnar Heinsohn. In fact, we now see Hammurabi decked out in the vÍtements and accoutrements of Darius the Great. This, in and of itself, should create quite a stir among the cognoscenti!

333. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... became clear that most of us had either not read them or had misunderstood them. Subjects touched upon were: Rate of Interest in Ur in 700 BC; Monogamy in Greece; Monotheism, Hebrew; Human Sacrifice, Theseus; Oldest City, Eridu; Ziggurat, most holy in Mesopotamia mentioned by Claudius Ptolemy; a dig found traces to Persian times, no building after 1700 BC, sanctuary in use for a further 1500 years, new chronology equates the two. Gunnar Heinsohn's ideas are set out in a pamphlet, specially prepared for the Haliburton Seminar: "Ancient Mesopotamian Historiography: from Ghost Empires to Reconstruction." If I have understood it correctly, his main argument is ...
334. James P. Hogan's Cradle Of Saturn (Book Review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... the entire Middle East, but in legends handed down by the people's of Iceland, Greenland, and India; from the islands of Polynesia to the steppes of Siberia; and places as far apart as Japan and Mexico, China and Peru. The accounts of shrieking hurricanes scouring the Earth and tides piling into mountains read the same in the Persian Avesta, the Indian Vedas, and the CRADLE OF SATURN Ginenthal 3 Mayan Troano as in Exodus, and were similarly narrated by the Maori, the Indonesian, the Laplander, and the Choctaw. And finally, the titanic electrical discharges between the comet's head and parts of its deformed, writhing tail became clashes of celestial deities depicted virtually ...
335. Notes Concerning the "Outline of the 1st Millennium B.C. Following Immanuel Velikovsky's Reconstruction of Ancient History" [Journals] [Pensee]
... Chaldean domination from 612 B.C . to the conquest of Egypt by Cambyses in 525 B.C . Here Velikovsky demonstrates that the Hittite Empire' is a mythical construct from the Chaldean archives and the Chaldean remains of the NeoBabylonian Empire. Volume V, which Velikovsky calls "Peoples of the Sea," describes first the period of Persian supremacy, beginning in 525 B.C . and ending with the conquest of Egypt by Alexander in 332 B.C ., and then the remaining years of Alexander's life. Since I constructed this chart for my own use, I did not footnote any of the entries which I made. Hence, I can only offer it ...
336. Dirkzwager's Revision Questioned [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... the Glasgow chronology the end of the XXIInd and the XXIIIrd dynasty will be placed about 400 B.C .; how then could Psamteq "I " close these galleries in his fifty-second reign-year? Why were no remains found of contemporaneous pharaohs like Amyrtaeus (463-454) and Nef'awi-rudj (399-393)- and yet the remains of the Saite, Persian, and Ptolemaic times are the most numerous? 14. The question maintains whether Akheperure Pesibhenno "I " was indeed the first Pesibhenno and not Tyetkheperure Pesibhenno "II." This, however, does not change anything for Dirkzwager's scheme, since the twenty-first dynasty undoubtedly has to follow the twentieth. 15. Hermann Kees, Die hohenpriester ...
337. Alalakh and the Collon Affair [Journals] [Aeon]
... in question is Old Babylonian.  This, in itself, is enough to tumble Heinsohn's revision as per his own reconstruction. As Newgrosh pointed out: "Conventional history allows for the Old Babylonians and Hyksos to be either contemporaries or near-contemporaries...But in the Heinsohn revision, the Old Babylonian kings are alter-egos of the Persians and can in no way be contemporaries of the Old Akkadians/Hyksos/neo-Assyrians."  Although he rarely does, this time Heinsohn saw fit to reply to his critics.  What he pointed out was the following: In Alalakh stratum VII, which C. W. McEwan had dated to 1800-1600 B ...
338. Ra as Saturn [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... can never attain? On the other hand, one may just as well ask: what has the planet Saturn, if that is what Ra was, to do with the celestial pole, a position it does not at present attain? And yet, throughout the ancient world, Saturn was strangely located at precisely this locality. In the Persian BUNDAHISH, the planet Saturn was assigned as the guardian of Gah - "the great one of the middle of the sky" - who was the Pole Star.(51) In China, the planet Saturn is called Tchou-niou-tchi-chin, a name that translates as "Genie [or spirit] of the Pivot."(52) ...
339. Answer to Jonsson [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... no evidence that Nabonidus wrote it, or had anything to do with it. In point of Babylonian fact, Nabonidus was not there when his mother died (despite what the Postscript states on the stele.1 ), as he spent some 10 years in Tema,2 and didn't return to Babylon until it was threatened by Cyrus the Persian. Read the text and get a feel for what she wrote, as it also includes some other valuable chronological material (i .e . the event in the 16th year of Nabopolassar; 42 year reign of Ashurbanipal II, etc.). Is Jonsson correct in stating that "all scholars agree that the stele contains a miscount ...
340. Forum: The 900-700 BC era - a Conundrum C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... I currently date about 855 BC), but it could take years to bring this to completion. Meanwhile, I am grateful to Bernard for his generous final sentence, as he can undoubtedly advance a strong case against the disruption of the conventional Assyrian king list which synchronisation of Ahab and Akhenaten would imply. Emmet Sweeney's Ramessides, Medes & Persians' incidentally also requires every bit as great a disruption of the king list, though Emmet does not actually mention this. ...
