341. Ice Caps, Continental Shift and the Break up of Pangaea [Journals] [SIS Review]
... . Section 17 of the AAAS review [4 ] describes studies by EXXON scientists providing a model for continuous generation of oil in the environment found in the KTB project. The EXXON model is like (but must supplement, not replace) the sudden deep burial' model. It cannot alone account for the major oil deposits of Mississippi and Persian basins - but it can explain many others such as those at Rangely, Colorado and the huge gilsonite deposits of Utah west of Rangely formed by destructive distillation of oils due to excess heating. One also needs to consider injection of sea water without complete separation of salt and water to account for the many hot springs such as Old Faithful ...
342. Bookshelf. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ice age' and the catastrophic damage inflicted on western America by the ensuing floods. Mayan Genesis: South Asian Myths, Migrations and Iconography in Meso-America By G. R. Kearsley, 2001, $37 95 A large and iconoclastic book which claims that the Mayan culture derived from south east Asia and India, via a race from the Persian Gulf who sailed to the New World. Arthur and Stonehenge: Britain's Lost History By Emmet J. Sweeney, Domra Publications, 2001 £6 95 An exciting new assessment of Celtic myths and their relationship to the megalith builders, which reveals Arthur as a catastrophic sky god in a true Velikovskian tradition. Jill Abery ...
343. Letters. C&C Review 2002:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... called Bethlehem? There are no contemporary records such as most chronological assessments are based, only reliance on stories written centuries later than the alleged event. In the second place all the attributes of this miraculous birth, including visiting shepherds and gift-bearing Magi, even the date of 25th December, were previously accorded to the birth of Mithra, the Persian saviour, whose cult was more successful than Christianity during the first few centuries of the Christian' era. Mithraism itself developed from an earlier Aryan religion, which is indistinguishable from other worldwide celestial myths. The arrival of the Magi, or Sun-priests, at the Saviour's birthplace was a Mithraic festival which was adopted by the Christian Church as ...
344. Summary and Closing Address [Journals] [SIS Review]
... just simply removed from history, that they were false and that history should be shortened accordingly. In his view, and I'm talking specifically about Emmet, the Medes were the Mitanni, the Hittites were the Lydians. Essentially, one of the important points that he referred to at length, was the similarity between the Assyrian period and the Persian period, pointing out, for example, similarities in events in the time of Xerxes and the time of Sennacherib, arguing that the two were the same, although supposedly two centuries apart. Finally, he mentioned archaeological evidence from a German team which in fact tended to support the idea that these long periods of time between cultures had ...
345. The Rise of Blood Sacrifice [Journals] [Aeon]
... , yet, these deities were played by humans. There even exist illustrations which might perfectly fit the inscription from Assur. "Assur against Tiamat" most probably represents other versions of "Enki against Kur," (15) "Ninurta against Asag," (16) Contest between celestial monsters. (From a relief at Koyunjik) Persian hero slaying a celestial monster. From the palace of Darius at Persepolis. "Marduk against Tiamat" (17) or "Gilgamesh against Huwawa," (18) etc. These myths may well portray the duel between a cosmic destroyer and a cosmic savior of the world. The winning hero keeps floods away and puts the sky ...
346. Possible repercussions of 'The Bible Unearthed' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... north by tribal movements spilling over from the Caucasus and consequently abandoned Egypt and possibly Palestine. They certainly did not challenge the Yahwist rebellion. Presumably, Psammetich was an ally of the Assyrians or simply moved into the Levant after they vacated the region. These ebbs and flows in climate, periodic crises and unaccountable falls in population levels bedevilled the Persians, the Greeks and the Romans in what appears to be a cycle of some kind. They can likewise be picked up in mid 10th (peaking around 948BC), the 9th, 8th and 7th centuries BC. The cycle does not appear to correspond with the kind of timescales pictured by Clube and Napier in their two books and ...
347. The Legends of the Jews: Volume I - Preface [Books]
... Church. This is the literature usually denominated apocryphal-pseudepigraphic. From the point of view of legends, the apocryphal books are of subordinate importance, while the pseudepigrapha are of fundamental value. Even quantitatively the latter are an imposing mass. Besides the Greek writings of the Hellenist Jews, they contain Latin, Syrian, Ethiopic, Aramean, Arabic, Persian, and Old Slavic products translated directly or indirectly from Jewish works of Palestinian or Hellenistic origin. The use of these pseudepigrapha requires great caution. Nearly all of them are embellished with Christian interpolations, and in some cases the inserted portions have choked the original form so completely that it is impossible to determine at first sight whether a Jewish ...
348. Sunk Without Trace? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... planned, but uncompleted, epic. The problem with this argument is that, if Plato's story of Atlantis was a morality tale rather than a historical account, then why should it have needed a single, or indeed any, source? Aristotle implied it was completely fictional and others have suggested that historical incidents, such as ones from the Persian Wars and the colonisation of Sicily, may have been adapted and incorporated to suit Plato's needs (see C&C Workshop 1987:2 , pp. 12-15). Without question, the Atlantis of Plato's writings is a long way removed from the Zippasla of history not only in time. Atlantis was said to be larger than Libya ...
349. Volcanic Systems Ch.3 (The Riddle of the Earth) [Books]
... invariably in a direction pointing from the south-east to the north-west, mark the earliest lands on the earth's surface, and coincident with these were the New Zealand Ridge, New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, New Guinea, Sumatra, and the western coast of North America from the Sierra Madre to Alaska. In such a division the Himalayas, the Persian Mountains, the Caucasus, Carpathians and Italian Apennines should be included as part of the original scheme. But when this occurred the southern parts of the Pacific lay within the region of the then North Pole, and of course Europe lay in the Southern Hemisphere, assuming always that these vast impacts of meteors came from the direction of the ...
350. In Search of the Exodus [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... represent a traditional figure, a dynasty rather than a lifetime. According to Van Seters,  the prominence given to Ur of the Chaldees, and to Harran in Aram, in Abraham's story, reflects the compilation date of the Book of Genesis- during the Exile but using much earlier material. At this time the Chaldaeans and Persians were the two super powers of the ancient world, and in the reign of Nabonidus there was a major temple dedicated to the god Sin (= the moon) at Harran; Nabonidus was related to the priesthood. At the same time, an ancient temple dedicated to Nanna (= the moon) at Ur received the attentions of ...
