481. Conclusion [Books] [de Grazia books]
... analogy is implied in this language about angels.") Pari passu, the translations that are generally used now exhibit both tendencies of the text editors to a marked degree. The editing, moreover, occurred in a parochial and depressed period of Jewish history, the period of the Babylonian exile from which only some fraction was freed by the Persians and wanted to return to the Jerusalem area. The priest-scholars would be intent upon preserving their small ethnic and linguistic group, and would be without hope of expanding their realms, as contrasted, for example, with Jesus and Paul, working with the protection of and with the model of the seemingly universal Roman Empire before their eyes. ...

482. Hatshepsut, The Queen of Sheba and Velikovsky [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... . Now if Thebes' Egyptian name is really Shewa (Sheba) then a whole host of hitherto mysterious facts become comprehensible. First and foremost, we now know where the Greeks got the word Thebes (Theba) from. A normal linguistic mutation (lisping) turns s' or sh' into th'. Thus for example the Persians called Assyria Athuria. Secondly, we know why Josephus called the capital of Ethiopia (i .e . Upper Egypt/Nubia) by the name Saba or Shaba. Finally we understand the significance of the name of another cult shrine of the god Amon - the oasis of Siwa. So, the two titles by which the Queen ...

(Cf. Diagram 15) Going farther east still we find the Persian system (to which must be added the slightly older Caucasus); it starts from the great east Pontic mountain system, strikes southeast, and has its head in Baluchistan. Farther east still is the huge remarkable system of south-eastern China, Burma, and Malaya, which starts from the Kuen-lun, and also strikes south-east (in its ...

484. What's in a Name? -- Venus "The Newcomer" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... moment to forestall accusations of blinkered specialism and to "legitimise" the etymological arguments Principles of Linguistics Etymology is one of the oldest-established branches of linguistic science, and has developed alongside the techniques of comparative linguistics which gave rise to the concept of an "Indo-European family" of languages (including Celtic, Germanic, Latin, Greek, Slavonic, Persian and Indian languages) and the rather more nebulous concept of a "Proto-Indo-European" (IE) mother tongue. To an outsider, the Indo-European hypothesis and the principles of etymology may appear to be characteristic examples of intra-disciplinary dogma, and it should be emphasised that there is only one reason for the continuing supremacy of these assumptions: that ...

... late Pleistocene times, i.e . between 11,000 and 12,000 years ago, when rampant volcanic activity is also known to have occurred. The largest of these fractures, now largely infilled by drift'like deposits, is that which extends unbroken from Sumatra in Indonesia to the Mediterranean [11] via the Gangetic Trough and the Persian Gulf. Informed opinion [12] has concluded that this fracturing occurred more or less simultaneously everywhere, indicating that Earth, as a planet, either abruptly malfunctioned or was suddenly subjected to some damaging external influence. Either way, massive crustal dislocation resulted globally. Mountain ranges [13] were heaved up, former oceans displaced, earlier ...

... or less intact, from the "universal" Roman Empire. The literary part of this heritage comprised the Old and New Testaments and enough of the works of the most important Greek and Latin authors to provide at least an outline, and sometimes even more, of the history of the ancient world from the Greek struggle for independence against the Persians early in the fifth century BC. Unfortunately, the Egyptian, Assyrian and Babylonian sources for the period before the fifth century were lost as the languages in which they were written fell first into disuse, then into oblivion, as Greek and Latin became the common means of communication among civilised men in the hellenised Roman Empire. Much of ...

In Egypt there is abundant pictorial evidence from burial sites from 2500-1400 BC and in Mesopotamia, Assyrian palace reliefs from 880-627 BC. There are also many written records. When these areas later fell to the Persians they devised a more formal garden plan, the name of which has come down to us as Paradise and gave rise to ideas of Eden and Heaven.

Paper-mulbery is referred to as Ku, as are also cereals. Laufer shows that this word "had the significance of milk" and "as the bark of this tree contained a milk-like sap", the word Ku "was transferred to the tree."32 Other trees besides the sycamore-fig were sacred in ancient Egypt ...
