121. The End of the Early Bronze Age [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... The End of the Early Bronze Age The Old Kingdom in Egypt, the period when the pyramids were built, a great and splendid age, came to its end in a natural disaster. ? At the conclusion of the Sixth Dynasty... Egypt is suddently blotted out from our sight as if some great catastrophe had overwhelmed it.? (1) The second city of Troy came to an end at the same time the Old Kingdom of Egypt fell; it was destroyed in a violent paroxysm of nature. The Early Bronze Age was simultaneously terminated in all the countries of the ancient East a vast catastrophe spread ruin from Troy to the Valley of the Nile. This fact has been extensively documented by Claude F. A. Schaeffer, professor at College de France, excavator of Ras Shamra (Ugarit). Schaeffer observed at Ras Shamra on the Syrian coast clear signs of great destruction that pointed to violent earthquakes and tidal waves, and other signs of a natural disaster. Among the greatest of these took place at the end of the Old ...
122. The Identification of Troy [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... thousand times larger, but I value truth above everything, and I rejoice that my three years ? excavations have laid open the Homeric Troy, even though on a diminished scale, and that I have proved the Iliad to be based upon real facts.? (3) By the early 1890 ? s new discoveries at Hissarlik had shown that Troy II, where Schliemann had found the great treasure, and which he confidently identified as the fortress of Priam, was in fact much more ancient: it was as old as the Pyramids, and it met its fiery end at the same time as the Egyptian Old Kingdom collapsed into anarchy. The finding of Mycenaean pottery in Troy VI made Wilhelm Dörpfeld, Schliemann ? s pupil and leader of the new campaign of excavations, claim that city as the most likely to have been the Ilion of Homer. (4) Doerpfeld found evidence that Troy VI had been destroyed by a violent earthquake; the damage was partly repaired and the city rebuilt, though on a much smaller scale. Such evidence, in the ...
123. THE BURNING OF TROY: PART ONE: HISTORICAL DISTURBANCES: CHAPTER NINE: ANCIENT ASTRONAUTS [Quantavolution Website]
... ; but even this idea will not advance the question of whether living culture inherited advanced techniques. The famous Peruvian Nazca ground patterns may not be fully understood; but if "aeronautical direction-finding" is contained in them, it is more suited to a Piper Cub plane than a space vehicle. They may have been laid out under instruction from heat-lofted balloons or from look-out points on heights. Theoretical geometricians could also achieve the patterns, and may have ordered them along the lines of meteorite falls. All ancient monuments-- megaliths, pyramids, temples-- were sky-oriented; the Nazca lines may have followed star-lines, also. There remains a possibility that only the theory of Solaria Binaria permits. I mentioned this theory in a talk to the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies in London in 1975 and have since developed the model in collaboration with Professor Earl R. Milton. It calls for a binary system of the Sun and Super-Uranus, electrically connected by a pulsing axis of fire and enveloped by an electromagnetized tube reaching between the binary partners and providing a vast intervening space ...
124. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 02: CRETE [Quantavolution Website]
... the age of nine', 'associate of Zeus for nine years', or that he associated with Zeus every nine years. There may be a parallel with the Egyptian heb-sed ceremony, in the course of which the king underwent a second coronation. The purpose of this ceremony may have been to rejuvenate the king. As part of the ceremony the king had to run, probably through a field, carrying a flail. The flail may represent forked lightning. He was accompanied by the souls of Nekhem. Edwards, in The Pyramids of Egypt, Penguin 1947, observes that the souls of Nekhem were the prehistoric kings of Upper Egypt whose capital was at Nekhem (Hierakonpolis}. The Greek hierax is a hawk or falcon which, like most birds of prey in the ancient world, was seen as a lightning symbol. Probably the intention was that the lightning, heavenly fire, would give life to the crops. The Latin for to plough, aro, recalls the Latin ara, Etruscan ar, divine fire, which was attracted to the altar. ...
125. A FIRE NOT BLOWN: CHAPTER 25: RESURRECTION TECHNIQUES [Quantavolution Website]
... striated cable, with pictures of snakes at the end to show that the god is present. A more symbolic method was that of enclosing a statue of Osiris in a length of hollow tree trunk, and raising the trunk until it was upright. I stand, sto, is closely related to zo, I live. The Egyptian practice of embalming must be included among techniques aimed at assisting the soul to continue to exist after death in a recognisable form. In Egypt, Osiris was the god on top of the staircase. Pyramids were fire-collectors; the aim was that a pharaoh buried in a pyramid should receive the full force of the electrical god. Burial in a tholos tomb or in a shaft grave at Mycenae would have the aim of bringing the dead person into contact with the deity in the earth, just as the burning of a corpse would have the aim of aiding the soul in its flight to the region of heavenly fire. Eating the bull, drinking the blood of goats, and so on, were more a matter of obtaining superhuman ...
126. Confessions of a Cenoist [Aeon Journal $]
... to the modern textbook figure of about 16 billion years. Even so, numbers that used to be exclusively "astronomical" now commonly appear on the financial page, in computer advertisements, and in the Guinness Book of Records. Undeterred by ballooning numbers, I have taken to calling myself a cenoist (from the Greek ceno, meaning "recent"). The time span of events, in my reading of history, stretches thousands of years not millions or billions. Dinosaurs roamed the continents only thousands of years ago and the pyramids were new tourist sites when Herodotus visited Egypt twenty-five hundred years ago. Paleoist science has stacked libraries with evidence that proves me wrong. Dating techniques are a growth industry. At last count, the study of ice cores alone has generated more than thirty dating methods and, as expected, most results validate the long duration of ice ages and inter-ice ages. The weight of dating-evidence is intimidating. The more influential methods of ice core, radiocarbon, and tree ring dating are founded on extensive research. Although the theories are not ...

... ., for example, the megafauna of the Late Pleistocene changed to the pygmy fauna of today. It was not a slow process, generation by generation, but the catastrophe probably evidenced by well known scenes of disaster like the frozen mammoths of Siberia. In the field of mythology Dr. Velikovsky again distinguished himself by maintaining that the so-called myths of antiquity had strong roots in reality. Astronomers now search these myths and legends to discover remarkable records of novae and other astronomical phenomena. Today Indian rock paintings and ancient structures like the pyramids and Stonehenge are repeatedly analyzed not only by historians and anthropologists, but by geologists and astronomers as well. Finally, the fields (in which I am more at home) of ancient history and archaeology have been changed violently by his great work, Ages in Chaos. All ancient histories, whether Greek, Etruscan, Hittite, Hurrian or others, are affected by his theories. Also, naturally, archaeology is affected. Velikovsky's historical revision answers many of the dilemmas of the Holy Land. The disappearance of the stratum in ...

130. Another Look at Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... at Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos Herbert A. Storck I would like to consider various problems pertaining to Velikovsky's revision of the history of the Ancient Near East as developed in a recent book (see Book Review section) by W. H. Stiebing, Jr. An Associate Professor of history at the University of New Orleans, Stiebing critically reviews several popular theories and ideas that have gained wide currency. The popular concepts treated by Stiebing are the universality of the Deluge, Atlantis, cosmic catastrophism, ancient astronauts, the mysteries of the pyramids, and early voyages to the Americas. Our comments on Velikovsky's ancient historical revisions will be augmented by Stiebing's recent Biblical Archaeology Review (Vol. II, 1985, 58ff.) article which considers this matter as well as other "restorations" of ancient history and archaeology. In this pursuit I have had the opportunity to present some of Stiebing's and my own criticisms before the Canadian Society for Interdisciplinary Studies last summer (August 1985). My discussion will also be complemented where necessary by a series of public lectures given by ...
