... [it] bear a far closer resemblance in physical appearance . . . to the late conquerors of Egypt than to the ancient Egyptians." The implications here are, first, that languages can be classified or described in terms of the religious beliefs of their speakers and, second, that the racial affiliations of the Egyptians, Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Romans, and Arabs were or are patently distinct. While linguists, according to preference and circumstance, may classify languages genealogically (in terms of cognation), typologically (in terms of structure), or areally (in terms of location), none, to my knowledge, do so in terms of religion. ...

462. Calendars [Journals] [Kronos]
... same parts of the calendar, year after year. The "months" are merely schematic, and do not correspond at all to lunar movements. No effort is made to have calendar dates reflect the actual movements or phases of the Moon. (The fact that 30-day months were schematic- during, say, the periods of Tanitic, Persian, Macedonian, and Roman domination of Egypt- does not of course preclude that these schematic months were inspired by a much earlier state of affairs: Velikovsky has argued that from the fourteenth century to the ninth or eighth century the lunar months really did average 30 days rather than 29 l/2 days.) The Babylonian calendar in ...

... with the sacred (laurel) tree behind.44The sanskrit (neuter) sadma, seat, is frequently used in the .Rig Veda in the sense of altar, and the two sadmani of heavens and Earth are also mentioned.45 These would therefore seem to be the celestial and terrestrial navels. Edris (Enoch) having, in Persian Moslem legend, got into paradise alive by playing a trick on AzrayIl, the angel of death, refuses to be ejected, and "taking refuge near a Tree "said that " unless the creator of paradise and hell removes me, this place I shall not quit."46We doubtless have here the omphalos and the supremely sacred ...

... the reign of Darius I of Persia (521-485 B.C .) . With the encouragement of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah construction was resumed and the temple was completed in Adar of Darius' sixth year (Ezra 6:15). The Jews and those Israelites released by the Assyrian king (Ezra 6:24), a Persian vassal (Herodotus, VII.63), celebrated Passover in the spring of 515B.C . This was 200 years after Israel was taken captive to Assyria and almost 100 years after the history of independent Assyria ended! Josephus says that an innumerable multitude of Israelites still remained beyond the Euphrates in his day (Antiquities of the Jews ...

465. Indra and Brhaspati (Forum) [Journals] [Kronos]
... later traditions vouched for, it is quite obvious that originally Brihaspati and Indra were one. The argument should actually end here but since Isenberg saw fit to further muddy the waters, I had better clarify a few more points. I will start by saying that the planet Jupiter's association with priesthood is not a uniquely Hindu trend. Among the Persians, whose ancestors derived from the same Aryan stock, Jupiter was also considered the protector of "men of religion" and "preachers in the mosque".(5 ) Secondly, Indra's identification as Jupiter is nowise weakened by Bhargava's (or Pathak's) special brand of dictionary entries. "Indra Devta" and "Brihaspati (graha ...

... the Old Testament. (19) The chief god of Cutha, a city in the vicinity of Babylon, Nergal's cult can be traced throughout the wide range of Akkadian influence, from Mari to Babylon to Sumer. (20) The god's cult can be found in the earliest times of Sumer and remained strong even in late Babylonian and Persian times, a period spanning some three thousand years. (21) In the past century a wealth of evidence has come to light regarding the nature of this god. Nergal is first and foremost a god of war. (22) As was the case with the Latin Mars and Greek Ares, the name Nergal was frequently employed ...

Yet, Apollo-the sun-the dispenser of light and warmth, was only a secondary deity. ' After explaining that Marduk was the Babylonian name of the planet Jupiter and Mazda its Persian name, Einstein expressed his wonder. Then I told him in the Iliad it is said that Zeus can pull all the other gods and the Earth with his chain, being stronger than all of them together; and that an old commentary (by Eustathius, a Byzantine scholar) states that this means the planet Jupiter is stronger in ...
