71. Forum Part Two [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , present and future cosmic catastrophes [7 ]. Above all, it has been argued that both the emergence and the collapse of human cultures, (e .g . the origin of metallurgy, the construction of the Egyptian pyramids, the destructions of the Bronze Age civilisations in the Near East and the Mediterranean, the collapse of the Roman Empire, the rise of Judaism and Islam, etc) should be associated with extra-terrestrial episodes of destruction [8 ]. All these new findings and developments of astronomical and archaeological research seem to verify Velikovsky's main idea: that the apparent destruction of the Bronze Age cultures, documented by various destruction layers around the world [9 ], ...

... largely unconstrained by realism and objectivity since the happenings that it describes. The boundary zone between legend and history is, of course, thickly populated. Thus, we have the well-known legend of the founding of Rome by close descendants of Aeneas, exiled prince of Troy, who settled in Latium. Many ancient scholars believed the story. Most Romans accepted it as true. The actual beginnings of the legend occur before Virgil, who related it in his epic poetry. If historical, the legend should go back to the also legendary beginnings of Rome, in the Eighth Century B.C . Then it was that Romulus and Remus, grandsons of Aeneas, built the town. ...

... has a facial angle of 42 ; and another, which approximated nearest to man in figure, an angle of 50. To this succeeds (longo sed proximus intervallo) the head of the African negro, which, as well as that of the Calmuck, forms an angle of 70 ; while that of the European contains 80. The Roman painters preferred the angle of 95 ; and the character of beauty and sublimity so striking in some works of Grecian sculpture, as in the head of the Apojlo, and in the Medusa of Sisocles, is given by an angle which amounts to 100.* A great number of valuable facts and curious analogies in comparative anatomy were brought ...

... and Earth, Thrones, Pillars and Trees: various and many are the attempts to copy on earth what is seen in the sky, some having been mentioned already, namely the use of sympathetic magic to bring low the monster, dragon, snake, bull, ram or goat that is threatening the established order in the sky. The Roman augur marks out the templa coeli', and transfers them to the ground. The helmet, plume, stephanos, painted faces and shields of warriors, the Philistines with their faces painted red, actors similarly, can all be derived from this. There are numerous examples. Here are two which seem to be possible candidates, though ...

... the shorter, more direct, trans-Atlantic route offers a much simpler solution to the problem. However, firstly, the simplest solution is not necessarily the correct solution and the most direct route is not necessarily the route taken. In support of an Atlantic crossing Mr Porter states that the signs in my fig. 4 apparently show links to the Roman Empire. Of course, this is the first thing that occurred to many, including myself, who have become involved with study of the site. The problem with this conclusion is that, as stated in para. 2, p. 26, of my article, unlike Roman bricks, which are inscribed with Latin graffiti, the ...

He discusses the reasons for writing the different books and for which readers. There is an assessment of Josephus as a Jew and as a historian, taking into account his relationship with the Romans as well as his own people. There is a chapter on the Jews and the Romans, two on the life of Josephus, one on his relationship to his predecessors, then a section devoted to each of his three works (apart from the Life): The Antiquities of the Jews, The Wars and Against Apion.

Will Durant, in his first volume of human history, informs us: "The unearthing of this forgotten culture is one of the romances of archaeology. To those whom . . . we call the ancients' that is, the Romans, the Greeks, and the Jews Sumeria was unknown. Herodotus apparently never heard of it, as something more ancient to him than he to us. Berosus, a Babylonian historian writing about 250 B.C ., knew of [a land] called Sumeria only through the veil of legend. He described a race of ...
