431. Letters [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... or perhaps especially, for "unorthodox" historians) discovery that, as in China and Mesoamerica, advanced culture did not exist in Mesopotamia (nor in Egypt, for that matter) before about 1500 BC. He has shown that the various cultures which were thought to have lived after each other - the sequence from the Akkadians to the Persians - because the figure of Abraham was thought to have lived in the third millennium and the entire historiography hinges on this mythical figure, were in fact duplications of each other; and only one historical sequence can be developed starting c. 1500 BC. The case is far more complicated in Egypt where the same "collapsing" action has ...

432. Cosmic and Terrestrial Lightning [Books] [de Grazia books]
... ]. The Bible says the same of Yahweh, all this and more. Psalm 97 gives us : "His lightnings lighten the world; the earth sees and trembles. The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth." The Babylonians speak so of Marduk, the Indians of Shiva, the Persians of Mazda. Other gods played with lightning and fire - Hephaistos, Apollo, Hermes, etc. but Jupiter was the overwhelming lightning god. Giambattista Vico believed that lightning was less on Earth in the damp age of Saturn, before Jupiter, because of deluges. It is noteworthy that satellite maps of terrestrial lightning published this year ( ...

... temples and east and west pyramids up the river indicates that, so far as these structures go, we lack the links which astronomically and mythologically connect the Delta with Babylonia either directly or by common origin. From Prof. Sayce it is to be gathered that the most ancient people yet glimpsed there inhabited the region at the head of the Persian Gulf, one of the chief cities being Eridu, now represented by the mounds of Abu Shahrên on the eastern bank of the Euphrates. It was founded as a maritime city, but is now far inland, owing to the formation of the delta, the alluvium of which at the present time advances about sixty-six feet a year. ...

For example, Cuvier, ". .. cites references from ancient Chaldean, Hindu, Persian, and Chinese records to prove his point, [of recent global catastrophe], and mentions [Alexander von] Humboldt's suggestion that references to a deluge may also be found in the `barbarous hieroglyphics' of the American Indians."1 Louis Agassiz stated: "We have as yet no clue to the source of this great ...

Go to the THOTH page and click on the image titled "Thoth: the Egyptian God of Knowledge" to access the back issues.- To the traditions of a polar power, previously cited, should be added the following: In the Persian Zend Avesta the creator-king Ahura Mazda rules from atop the world axis, the fixed station "around which the many stars revolve." Iranian cosmology, as reported by Leopold de Saussure, esteemed the celestial pole as the center and summit of heaven, where resided Kevan, the sovereign power of heaven, called "the Great One in ...

... the text is not an outright forgery (in difference to the annals of Nabopolassar those of Nebukhadnezar are very short and give actually only what is known from the Scriptures), then I assume that it is an erroneous presentation. Then what is the solution? Wiseman admits that these chronicles could have been as late as the end of the Persian time; this is only a few decades before [historian] Berosus; this would explain where Berosus, and others after him, took his wrong succession. (2 ) Velikovsky spent the rest of the decade trying to present such a strong case for his revised chronology that no reasonable historian could possibly find it objectionable. The Wiseman ...

438. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... two examples of radiocarbon dates taken from the mud-brick bonding of the enclosure wall of the Great Temple of Amun at Karnak, which is associated with Nekhtnebef - that is, the "official" Nectanebo I of the XXXth Dynasty. The date is slightly too young for Velikovsky's date for Nekhtenebef (c . 440 BC as a governor under the Persians), but very close to the conventional dates for Nectanebo I (380-363 BC). So the dates for Nekhtenebef are strikingly closer to those for the historical XXXth Dynasty than those for the XXth Dynasty (above), with which Dr Velikovsky has identified it. Fig. 6. Radiocarbon dates for XVIIIth - XXth Egyptian Dynasties Fig ...

... because there was a time when it enjoyed a climate superior to all other on the earth, a veritable Garden of Eden, but when the earth changed her axis and poles the former region of bliss became the scene of ice and cold and arid soil, as say the Scandinavian Sagas of "Ragnarok." In the Zend-Avesta of the Persians there were sixteen countries given by Ormuzd, the good deity, for the Aryans to live in. These countries are described as formerly a land of delight, which were turned by Ahriman, the Devil, into regions of death and cold, partly by a great flood, described as similar to Noah's or Deucalion's Flood.

His current main activity was answering letters about the book and tying up loose ends. In support of his placement of the Middle Kingdom in the Persian era, he is studying the King Lists to see if they may be Ptolemaic creations or restorations. He is also studying Ptolemy III, Mayan numbers and Venus numbers. Ev Cochrane comes from Iowa and got involved in late 1970s after reading Velikovsky's Worlds in Collision. He went to the symposium at Princeton College, having been interested in ...
