371. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... star [morning and evening] or to that of Orion, its parallel among the constellations." (122) The goddess Anat (Astarte), herself identified with Venus, was syncretized at times with various gods to produce such deities as Anat-Yaw, Ashtart-Yaw, Anat-Bethel, Melk-Ashtart, or Eshmun-Ashtart; and one coin from Gaza of the Persian period pictures a male-female dual-headed god indicating a deity who combined the attributes of both. (123) The above discourse was no mere digression. It was intended to highlight the syncretic nature and gender duality that existed in certain segments of ancient pantheons, particularly those planetary deities associated with Saturn and Venus. In the case of Christianity, ...

... garden," is indicated by the Sanskrit name Saurikah which translates as Saturn, Heaven, and Paradise. [41] The name Paradise is derived from the Greek paradeisos, which word is used to translate the Hebrew Gan Eden in the Septuagint version of the Old Testament. The Greek paradeisos, in turn, is derived from the ancient Persian pairidaeza (* paridaizas), which translates as "enclosure" or, as Roger Wescott has it, "literally, something roundly shaped'." [42] What was this enclosure? The Persian myth of the Golden Age has Yima, the same as the Hindu Yama, an avowed personification of Saturn, [43] ...

373. The Chronology of the Late Kings of Egypt [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... daughter of Pesibkhenno II, a late king of the High Priest line.60 The proposals of Velikovsky leave us with a discrepancy of some 500 years. This was the extent of the discrepancy with the popular views at the end of the Amarna period suggesting that the subsequent dynasties belong to the period prior to the fall of Egypt to the Persians in 525 B.C ., the correct approach to the problem being one of recognizing a far greater degree of parallelism of rule than has been conventionally recognized. Breasted concluded that Hrior must have been dead at the time of the flood in the reign of Nusebenebded.61 Not so. Hiror had not yet begun to reign at ...

374. Response to Critique by Leroy Ellenberger [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... evidence. Velikovsky, as planetary catastrophist from the 1940's to the 1970's, spent thousands of hours in some of the largest east-coast libraries researching ancient literature on the subject. He found an interesting variety of 360-day calendars. The Maya calendar, for example, had 72 five-week divisions. Another, the Chinese, had 24 fifteen-day divisions. The Persians had two 180-day apertures. The very early Roman calendar, a heritage of the Etruscans, had 10 months only, each being 36 days. This is why our last month is still named December, preceded by November and October, for ten, nine, and eight. In the Middle East a 12-month calendar (30 days per ...

He describes the "servants" of Kronos who- every 30 years, when Saturn is in Taurus- sail to Ogygia to remain there in service for thirty years. . . .14 And just as the Persian Shahs held their royal jubilee festival after having reigned thirty years (which is the Saturnian revolution), so the Egyptian Pharaoh also celebrated his jubilee after 30 years, true to the "inventor" of this festival, Ptah, who is the Egyptian Saturn.15 The number 108 is also detected in the Rig Veda with 10, ...

... and Mesopotamia. For the most part, however, the centers in question are so close to one another that implications for more distant cultures are minimal. In fact, both accurate and far-flung synchronisms remain dubious until the middle of the first millennium B.C ., * when we encounter the first multicontinental empire, that of the Achaemenid Persians, which embraced Greeks, Egyptians, and Indo-Aryans in a single political ecumene. [* Velikovsky has presented material casting doubt on the accuracy of synchronisms as far down as the Hellenistic period. See I. Velikovsky, Peoples of the Sea (Doubleday: N.Y . 1976), passim.] Because of the unreliability of ...

... ), and the latter by his son Evil-Merodach (probably the Hittite Tudhaliyas IV). After the death of Evil Merodach, a struggle for power ensued; eventually his maternal uncle Nabonidus (556-539, possibly the Hittite Suppiluliumas III)* assumed the throne.(24) Under the latter, of course, Babylon was taken by the Persians and the Neo-Babylonian or Chaldean Empire brought to an end (539 B.C .) .( 25) [* Suppiluliumas II of the traditional chronology but not Suppiluliumas II of the revised chronology - see Ramses II and His Time, pp. 218-220.] Accepting Velikovsky's chronology as a working hypothesis and applying it to the known ...

... by Michanowsky in a reference which appears in a cuneiform list of star names: "The gigantic star of the god Ea in the constellation Vela of the god Ea."(29) As seen by the ancient peoples of Mesopotamia, Vela X would have appeared low on the horizon with "its luminous reflection on the waters of the Persian Gulf stretched like a shiny ribbon from [watery] horizon to [nearby] shore".(30) It is this superimposed tableau that Michanowsky saw symbolized in the ankh. "Michanowsky's study of Egyptian sources has led him to conclude that the ankh symbol is actually a stylized representation of the Vela star burst. The loop at ...

At the same time, he describes the great celestial god as one that might leave the region of the stars' and approach the Earth."(39) It does not occur ...

A list of recent discoveries by specialists in these areas and of the difficulties still existing followed, and the paper closed with statements from several eminent authorities supporting Velikovsky's case. QUESTIONS: Velikovsky's reconstruction of the period between the Persian conquest in 525 BC and the early Ptolemies, as set out in Peoples of the Sea, sparked off a number of questions from the floor, in particular regarding the Semitic elements in Egyptian society during the XXth Dynasty and the murals at Medinet Habu depicting Ramesses III's war with the so-called "Sea Peoples". Given the strong similarities ...
