... we ignore this evidence to equate, say, Hammurabi with Darius I, we have to explain why two completely different styles of writing were apparently in use at the same time. 2. Intercalary months. The Ur III and Hammurabi dynasties have yielded a great number of attested intercalary months. They follow a seemingly erratic sequence. Neo-Babylonian and Persian intercalary months, on the other hand, come at regular intervals according to an agreed pattern. Thus, if the Hammurabi dynasty is equated with the Persian period, two different arrangements of intercalary months, both based on the same lunar phenomena, were seemingly in use at the same time. The chances are all against that happening. ...

We may perhaps ignore the Persian and Phoenician antiquarians who claimed that Io, with several Aegeian women, went on board a Phoenician ship to purchase finery and that the captain abducted her, taking her to Egypt. What is more to the point is that she became, through Epaphus, the legendary grandmother of Danaus and Egyptus, the true Ionians. Herodotus, in ...

... . Better is it to separate the baby from the bath water and to clean it, dry it and diaper it. Step III. A Recognition of the Ancient 360-day Year. This was one of Velikovsky's several shining breakthroughs. He amassed information from thirteen ancient civilizations where a 360-day calendar was used satisfactorily. One of those cultures, the Persian, had 180 days in a "month." Another, the Roman, had 36 days in a "month.". Another, the Chinese, had 15 days in a semi-month, while yet another, the Mayan, had 5 days in a "week." The Persian calendar had two 180-day periods to the year ...

[15,000 to 6,000 years ago] the world's sea levels rose rapidly, by about half an inch a year as ice sheets melted. The rising Indian Ocean flowed into the shallow Persian Gulf basin so rapidly by geological standards that the water level rose at a rate of about 36 feet (11 meters]) a year, forming a deep inundation far into the desert. "98 Notice how the ocean rose only a half inch a year while at the same time the Persian Gulf rose 36 feet a year. ...

... Anu," and casts "a shadow of glory over the land." (16) All Mesopotamian figures of the primeval god possess this tangible character, and accounts of the god's radiant appearance are more of a historical than a speculative nature. Egyptian and Mesopotamian traditions of the solitary creator find many parallels in later Hebrew, Greek, Persian, Hindu, and Chinese mysticism and philosophy. But it is the earlier imagery which illuminates the later. And however unorthodox the idea may seem, the oldest records treat the great god's birth in the deep and his acts of "creation" as events experienced by the ancestors. "Hearts were pervaded with fear, hearts were pervaded ...

... the Greek Kronos with Chronos. We find the same in India where Kala, one of the names for the planet Saturn, also means time' [23]. As it happens, the Indic Kala (i .e . Time) is also one of the epithets of the Hindu Yama [24], the same as the Persian Yima, whose identity as Saturn is also well known [25]. This tells us that Time was simply another name for Saturn. To the Hindus, the Wheel of Time' is known as the Kala-cakra (or chakra') [26]. It is important that it was Brahma who was said to turn this wheel ...

369. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... ancient Greeks and Romans were thoroughly confused (they thought Aphrodite was the planet Venus when really Athena was; they thought Pallas and Typhon were unrelated individuals when really they were the same; and they couldn't always distinguish between Zeus and Athena), Velikovsky could clearly read the whole story of cosmic catastrophes from their myths. Velikovsky also equates the Persian god Mithra, the Egyptian goddess Isis, and the Canaanite god Baal with the planet Venus and the Iranian Gokihar and Germanic Fenrir or "Fenris-Wolf" with the planet Mars. Most of these identifications are questionable, yet he gives no evidence or arguments to support his assertions. But enough has been said on this point. Velikovsky does ...

Spatters and the trismatic Fleur de Lis make a potent combination. Figure 103 is my tracing of a scene from a Persian amulet inscribed with texts from the Koran. It is undated. In and around the text, among a sea of ringlets, spatter-like shapes pop up, including the ringed crosses seen before. If you look closely, you will find spatters on the outside borders. The shapes depicted in this amulet suggest that Islam, which developed in ...
