... were drawn towards the tropics by the tidal action of the new satellite, their surge was not opposed by a similar tide swelling towards the tropics from the north. Hence they swung far beyond the equator and raced up the funnel-shaped depression between Persia and Arabia, forcing the defile which is now called the Strait of Hormuz, and forming the Persian Gulf. They also surged much farther north, up the valley of the Two Rivers, and only spent themselves far up in the plains of Mesopotamia. This is the flood whose unmistakable evidences have been discovered at Ur and other places. I suggest that it was in order to placate the god of the new satellite, the Moon-God ...

... the Egyptian army pursing them. Following this the Delta sank into turmoil which lasted through the reign of Sankhare, the last of the 1lth Dynasty kings. In Sumer and Akkad, the catastrophic storm engendered by Enlil wiped out the capital city of Naram Sin (Sargon's grandson), Agade, and salted the lowlands with high tides from the persian Gulf. The 3rd Dynasty of Ur foundered at about the same time while, in the eastern Mediterranean, Thera, the great volcano on Santorini, blew its top sending ash falls all the way to the Nile Delta. Some interdisciplinary studies (Velikovsky, Patton, etc. ) have sought to establish an extra-terrestrial force such as near ...

533. El-Hiba Revisited [Journals] [SIS Review]
... some time at el-Hiba investigating the large necropolis that lies between the town and the cliffs to the east in their search for Graeco-Roman papyri. A number of other texts from earlier periods have come from the town site itself including the oft-recited Story of Wenamun, the Letter of Wermai and the Petition of Petiese. The latter dates to the early Persian period and relates how a priestly family struggled to survive the ups and downs of this new era of foreign occupation in Egypt. Wermai's letter records the maraudings of a local chief from the Faiyum who runs about terrorising the populace and exacting heavy dues from his terrified neighbours! For some time we sat, hunch-backed, our heads pressed against ...

... Cook Islands, Samoa, and further north, Hawaii, while coincident with this same epoch there will have arisen the New Zealand Ridge, the New Hebrides, Solomon Islands, New Guinea in part, Sumatra, and the western coast of North America from the Sierra Madre to Alaska. A little later we must include the Himalayas, the Persian Mountains, the Caucasus, Carpathians, and Italian Appenines. Probably long after this system was fully established with its particular types of fauna and flora, we must project a further movement of the earth's axis and another new epoch. In this linear direction, with the then Poles situate not far from the present Equator, we discover among ...

535. Evidence of the Prophets and Egypt [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... BAR, iv 355. 47. BAR, iv 357. Velikovsky (Ramses II and His Time, Ch. VI, "Mitanni") identified Mitanni with Media. Herodotus (I .202; V.49; VII.72) mentions the Matieni as dwelling at the source of the Araxes River and counts them among the Persian allies. Medan and Midian were sons of Abraham by Qeturah (Genesis 25:2 ); they were sent into "the east country" (Qadem- Genesis 25:2 ), a term which can include Mesopotamia (Genesis 29:1 ; 1 Kings 4:30). 48.

... basing himself on accounts of the ninth-century traveller Ibn Fadlan, speaks of the Khazars who dwelt in Samara.(5 ) This people dominated southern and eastern Russia possibly as early as the third,(6 ) but especially during the tenth and eleventh centuries. They passed the Caucasus mountains to participate in the wars of the Romans and the Persians, dominated the Ukraine as far as Kiev, concluded treaties with the emperors of Byzantium, and their influence and suzerainty sometimes reached as far west as Sofia.(7 ) The ruling class of the Khazars used Hebrew as its language, and the Hebrew faith was the official religion in the realm of the Khazars. There was a ...

... consider it therefore hardly a coincidence when, on an ivory carving from Megiddo, a certain mark appears on the body of a cow in a shape which is comparable to our symbol (see Fig. 4). The great herds of cattle which the Roman soldiers encountered at Melitene (Armenia) which were consecrated to Anahita, the "Persian Artemis", were only kept as sacrificial animals (G . Widengren, Die Religion Irans (Stuttgart, 1965), pp. 183 and 228). In J. Burckhardt, Die Zeit Constantins des Grossen (Vienna, n.d .) , p. 121 (Eusebius, Vita Const. III, 55) and ...

... . Approximately 40 of these sites have been identified and about half of them have been excavated, at least partially. These sites, up to 215 feet in diameter, were laid out according to two main architectural plans; either oval (11), or rectangular (7 ). Three square sites that have been dated to the later Persian period do not concern us here [7 ]. The casemate or double wall that was built around these sites enclosed some buildings and a central courtyard. A small settlement of houses, commonly of the Israelite four-room variety, was typically located nearby these enclosures. These look like the domestic site that accompanied the military installation. According to ...

... Age wares continued in use throughout. The left side of Figure 3C reflects the tells of the lowlands where Late Bronze Age remains are more plentiful, at least for LB II, but even here the Late Bronze period is lacking certain features, especially town walls. The difference between central hill country and western lowlands is increasingly accepted for the Persian period (Stern 1984, p. 74), and so may have applied in earlier times also. At many sites Late Bronze II pottery develops into a similar style which is included in Iron I because it dates to the time of Ramesses III and later (i .e ., after 1200 BC, which is defined as ...

... 6.15 p.m ., Bombay reported a shock about 1880 miles distant, and later, messages from Colombo, Ceylon, where some windows were shattered, confirmed an earthquake. Seismologists guessed various places, Sumatra being the most popular guess, as its epicentre, but it later transpired to have been in the vicinity of the Persian Gulf, telegrams from Seistan notifying two shocks on the night of the 9th, when a village was devastated, 1000 houses were destroyed and some lives were lost. If this were caused by a meteor the resultant weather conditions may be explained, for it would have passed over via Siberia. On the 10th and 11th an icy gale ...
