1. Towards an astronomical dating of the pyramids [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1996:2 (May 1997) Home | Issue Contents Towards an astronomical dating of the pyramids by Michael G. Reade Michael G. Reade DSC has contributed several astronomical' articles to SIS publications. His astronomical expertise derives from wartime experience as a Navigating Officer in the Royal Navy (1940-44). Since then, his principal activities have been in food technology and woodland management. Summary A detailed study of the claim that the pyramids of Giza were planned to mirror the constellation of Orion on the ground supports this hypothesis but reveals that the ancient Egyptians cannot have been quite such precise surveyors as is frequently claimed and that the era when ...

3. Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon III:5 (May 1994) Home | Issue Contents Sothis and the Morning Star in the Pyramid Texts Ev Cochrane It has frequently been observed that star-worship pervades the earliest religion of Egypt. Certainly this is true of that religion as it is represented in the Pyramid Texts. (1 ) Countless passages therein identify the king with one celestial body or another and describe in some detail his peregrinations (or his soul's) throughout the stellar regions until he ultimately comes to reside in a celestial Elysian fields. Despite numerous attempts to identify various stars and planets in the Pyramid Texts there is little agreement as to the specific asterisms involved and, in any case, ...
4. The Pyramid Age, by Emmet J Sweeney (Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review 2001:1 (Apr 2001) Home | Issue Contents The Pyramid Age by Emmet J Sweeney Domra Publications, 65 Constable Road, Corby, Northants. 1999 Reviewed by John Crowe 1. Introduction Emmet Sweeney has been a contributor to SIS publications since 1986, and this is the third book he has had published. The second, The Genesis of Israel and Egypt, came out in 1997. To have had three books published is a tremendous achievement for which he deserves much credit. This is a tribute to his tireless energy and enthusiasm for his chosen subject. His second book focussed mainly on the Sojourn and Exodus eras but closed ...
... Chapter XXXII The Early Temple and Great Pyramid Builders In previous chapters I have referred to the difference in astronomical thought evidenced by the solstitial solar worship at Thebes as opposed to the non-solstitial solar worship at Annu, and again by the observations of southern stars above Thebes as opposed to observations of high northern stars below. There is still another fundamental difference to be signalised, and that is the building in some cases of pyramids, with or without associated temples, east and west true. It will perhaps be generally conceded that the differences in thought indicated by the building or non-building of colossal pyramids are greater than those indicated by the two other differentia to which I have referred, ...
6. ...more Myths Monuments and Mnemonics: A Photographic Tour of Egyptian Antiquities [Journals] [Horus]
... From: Horus Vol. 3 No. 1 (Winter 1987) Home | Issue Contents .. .more Myths Monuments and Mnemonics: A Photographic Tour of Egyptian Antiquities David Griffard (Photos by the author) The mountainous stone pyramids at Gizeli have withstood the erosive forces of time, natural and human, to reveal the essentials of their original outer dimensions and generally preserve the internal chambers and passageways. Their antiquity alone is cause enough for wonder though older examples show them to be particularly grand structures in an already established tradition - one that continued generally throughout the Old Kingdom of Egypt. About eighty are known, but the sheer mass of the Gizeli group has added to ...
7. Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1998:2 (Dec 1998) Home | Issue Contents Alan Alford's The Phoenix Solution http://www.eridu.co.uk Alford's theory is that a pre-dynastic race built the Great Pyramid and deposited at Giza certain scientific records which specifically included the catastrophic history of our solar system and the subsequent development of life on Earth. Alford presents evidence that the ancient Egyptian religion was an exploded planet cult', and suggests that they re-discovered this themselves in the legendary Hall of Records' at least 6,000 years ago. This profound knowledge - of catastrophism in the heavens and on Earth - was adopted by the emerging Dynastic elite as ...
8. The Orientation of the Pyramids [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents The Orientation of the Pyramids Immanuel Velikovsky Copyright 1967 by Immanuel Velikovsky. This first appeared in Yale Scientific Magazine (April, 1967). A little consideration reveals that, should the terrestrial axis be turned tomorrow into a new astronomical direction by any angle of inclination toward the ecliptic, the Great Pyramid would remain properly oriented to the north and south poles; there would be a new celestial pole and, if so positioned, a new polar star, but the pyramid would remain with two of its sides aligned with the geographical poles. Should the terrestrial ...
9. Forum [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Newsletter 2 (Sep 1975) Home | Issue Contents Forum A SLOW START, perhaps, but then if we start small, we can only get bigger... This is your column: your letters are invited. Joseph and the Pyramids MY MAIN INTEREST in Velikovsky is as a student of Scripture and on this score I would like to put forward one or two thoughts concerning the record in Genesis which seem to me to affect both the revised chronology and the idea of catastrophes. A considerable part of Genesis is given to the recording of the story of Joseph. The basic facts are these: 1. Pharaoh had a dream which was interpreted for ...
10. A Reading of the Pyramid Texts [Journals] [Pensee]
... From: Pensée Vol. 3 No 1: (Winter 1973) "Immanuel Velikovsky Reconsidered III" Home | Issue Contents A Reading of the Pyramid Texts William Mullen Myth and the Science of Catastrophism Editor's Note: Dr. Mullen has received a grant from Princeton University to provide a new translation of the Pyramid texts. He is currently in the classics department, University of California (Berkeley). The paper published here was first read at the Velikovsky Symposium, Lewis and Clark College (Portland, Oregon), August 18, 1972. The student of Velikovsky's reconstructions, once he grants the possibility that they are accurate, has a sequence of responses. His first is ...
