91. The Papyrus Ipuwer, Egyptian Version Of The Plagues - A New Perspective [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... millennium B.C ., "for the first time historically what the modern psychologists have concluded from their observations of the life of man as it is found in modern times. I am referring to their conclusion that the moral impulses of the life of man have grown up out of the influences that operate in family relationships." The Pyramid Texts, a collection of 4th and 5th Dynasty formulae for furtherance of the afterlife, and didactic literature from both the Old and Middle Kingdoms, extol the virtues of family and friends and reveal what Breasted called "a much more highly developed stage of man's unfolding moral life."(14) Erman described the early Egyptians as " ...
92. Saturn's Cosmos [Books]
... was the same circle. Residing within the enclosure, the central sun is the shining seed impregnating the great mother. "I am indeed the Great Seed," declares Re. (25) "O Re, make the womb of Nut pregnant with the seed of the spirit which is in her," reads a hymn of the Pyramid Texts. (26) The same texts celebrate "the womb of the sky with the power of the seed of the god which is in it." (27) And again, "Pressure is in your womb, O Nut, through the seed of the god which is in you." (28) In his ...
93. The Holy Land [Books]
... with wheat or barley, and the inhabitants drink of beer and cool waters. In the Book of the Dead, the deceased king announces, "I know the names of the domains, the districts and the streams within the Garden of Hetep .. . there is given to me the abundance .. ." (15) The Pyramid Texts depict the deceased king drinking oil and wine and living off "the bread of eternity" and "the beer of everlastingness." (16) The Egyptians deemed the meadow of peace and plenty at once the ancestral land and the future home of those yet to pass beyond. Many writers, of course, recognize the Garden ...
94. Chronological Placements of the Dynasties of Manetho [Journals] [SIS Review]
... central rule of either Saite, Persian, or Ptolemaic kings. Thus inscriptions from these buildings and tombs also create the false impression of a centralised Egyptian government early in Egyptian history and tend to deny the possibility of concurrent dynasties. Acceptance of a framework of largely consecutive dynasties has caused the conventional and new' chronologists to date many of the pyramids and material associated with them to the 3rd millennium BC. Africanus, for example, specifically attributes pyramids to some kings and a queen of the 1st, 4th and 6th Dynasties of Manetho. Of course, Herodotus contradicts 3rd millennium BC dates. He suggests that a king Moeris who lived no earlier that c. 1350 BC built the ...
... entombment. The new king acceded to the throne, but before he could be crowned he had to move throughout the land of Egypt performing a mystery play which reenacted the struggle between Horus and Seth. The dead king was then entombed at the end of the prescribed period with a solemn ritual of resurrection. It is carried out in the pyramid built as his tomb, and the so-called "Pyramid Texts" are the words inscribed on the walls of the pyramid's inner chambers and recited during it. They are extraordinarily complex because the dead king is in fact reborn as many different gods, but his identity as Osiris is one of the primary among them. This ritual has a ...
96. The Mythical History of the Comet Venus (Part I) [Journals] [Aeon]
... well- known portrait of Zurvan, who is identified in astronomical traditions with the planet Saturn. Figure 3 Zuryan, with central eye Soul of the Sun God Mythically, the eye and heart of the sun god not only meant the same thing: they signified, in the most concrete sense, a central, animating light. In the Pyramid Texts the soul of the god-king is proclaimed a "living star,"(35) and the texts equate this visible soul with the Eye. When they declare the deceased king to have received his eye, they add the phrase, "that you may have a soul thereby and power thereby."(36) "O ...
97. Egyptian Monumental Evidence [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... so-called Old Kingdom' kings were the same as the late Ethiopian king Taharka. I expressed agreement with Velikovsky's placement of Ramesses III (although I now know that he was actually Ptolemy I Soter). Indeed, I am now of the opinion that almost all New Kingdom material and much else besides is Ptolemaic. Thus while Herodotus suggests the pyramids were largely from the period between c.1000 BC and the early part of the 6th century BC, much of the material from temples associated with the pyramids is probably also Ptolemaic. Consistent with this, I suggested in passing in DE 17 that the Linear B tablets, which are cross-dated to Egypt, can be independently shown to ...
98. Graham Hanock: Adjudication [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... Mr Hancock and Mr Bauval were interviewed in the programme. They each complained to the Broadcasting Standards Commission that they had been treated unjustly or unfairly in the programme. The Complaints Mr Hancock complained that he had been treated unjustly or unfairly in that: he had not been given an opportunity to respond to criticisms of the theory that the Giza pyramids in Egypt matched the position of stars in the Orion constellation at a particular period (the "correlation theory"); an important part of his argument for a correlation between the Great Sphinx and the constellation of Leo had been ignored, the programme had mocked his argument by correlating buildings in modern Manhattan with the constellation, and he ...
99. Were Abraham, Joseph, and Moses Located in the Old Kingdom? [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Dynasty and early Fourth Dynasty. Finally, he theorizes that Moses should be placed at the end of the Sixth Dynasty. Abraham One of the supports Fry uses to place Abraham in the First Dynasty is that Josephus claims Abraham taught the Egyptians mathematics and astronomy. That would necessitate Abraham's entry into the Egyptian Kingdom prior to the building of the pyramids. A second reason is that the Bible states that Hebron was built seven years before Tanis (Zoan). The Book of Jubilees states that Abraham lived during the time of Hebron's construction, and further Egyptian history mentions Tanis/ Zoan in the Old Kingdom. A third reason claims that the artifact found in the Royal Cemetery ofUr, ...
100. Gods of the New Millennium by Alan F. Alford [Journals] [SIS Review]
... New Millennium by Alan F. Alford (available from Eridu Books, PO Box 107, Walsall, UK, 1996 £24.00) Those who liked Erich von Daniken's Chariots of the Gods? will love this. In an Important Foreword', Alan Alford' promises us explanations of the Nazca lines, Easter Island, the Great Pyramid, Stonehenge, Machu Picchu - and hints that he can demonstrate a scientific basis for millennial fears, predicting that major changes will be directed at the Earth around that time. Gods of the New Millennium follows on from Zecharia Sitchin's The Twelfth Planet and argues that the gods of legend were really travellers from outer space, who brought with ...
