81. Years Of Ten Months, Part 2 Mars Ch.8 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... says similarly that it was Romulus who (in the eighth century) established the year of ten months.2 Aulus Gellius, a second century author, writes in his Attic Nights: "The year wa s composed not of twelve months, but of ten."3 Plutarch remarks that in his day there was a belief that the Romans, in the time of Romulus, computed the year "not in twelve months, but in ten, by adding more than thirty days to some of the months."4 At the beginning of Numa's reign the ten-month year was still the official one.5 "March was considered the first month until the reign of Numa, ...

82. Sea Level Changes [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , in contrast to the uniformitarian idea of continuous slow drift. Plate movement not only buckled hills and mountains and raised shorelines but caused the subsidence of land in some regions, as a result of stretched plates. This has historically affected the North Sea basin and may lie at the root of the sea level rises which occurred in the late Roman period. The geology of NW Europe since the end of the Ice Ages is intriguing. The North Sea basin is thought to have been dry land that was flooded as sea levels have changed. This idea would demand a universal increase in the amount of water in the oceans - but where would the water have come from? Around ...

... have serious consequences for the history, not of Egypt alone, but of the entire Middle East," writes Gardiner, when dealing with "the difficult topic of chronology" (10). The scheme commonly applied is that of a calendar tied to the fixed star called Spdt in Egyptian, Sothis in Greek, and Sirius by the Romans - the English "Dog star" . The star becomes visible in Egypt about the time when the Nile begins to rise - the most important event for a country the productivity of whose fields depended on the annual Nile Flood. After having tied the calendar to a fixed star, it became possible, through most complicated mathematical and astronomical ...

84. Untitled [Books]
... and leprosy. Yet, while the defeat of Antony may have overtones of a divine Old Testament holocaust, its consequence, the victory of Octavius, is cast in a New Testament mould. To quote from one critic: Octavius - Caesar as he is always called in Antony and Cleopatra - was to become Augustus, perhaps the greatest of Roman emperors, creator of the Pax Romana that closed the long period of unrest, revolution, and war, with the time of peace in which Christ was to be born. Thus, in the war with Antony, when Antony's allies have deserted and sympathy for him is at its strongest, Caesar redresses the balance by a brief but ...

... are named Antiochians, because Seleucns the founder of that city gave them the privileges belonging thereto? After the like manner do those Jews that inhabit Ephesus, and the other cities of Ionia, enjoy the same name with those that were originally born there, by the grant of the succeeding princes; nay, the kindness and humanity of the Romans hath been so great, that it hath granted leave to almost all others to take the same name of Romans upon them; I mean not particular men only, but entire and large nations themselves also; for those anciently named Iberi, and Tyrrheni, and Sabini, are now called Romani. And if Apion reject this way of ...

... ) However, no mention of foot washing in connection with meals can be found in Jewish sources, including ritual observances prescribed in the Old Testament or the voluminous Midrashic commentaries on them. Jews were required to wash their hands before meals, not their feet. But if we look at this episode from the point of view of Greek and Roman customs, we find that the washing of feet before a formal meal was a regular practice. The reason was a practical one- on formal occasions the Greeks and the Romans did not sit at a table as we do, but lay prone on a cushion, leaning on their elbows and facing a low table. Accounts of such ...

... as Kronos, which is the Greek name of the planet Saturn? [35] Is not the Indic Surya, usually identified as the Sun, also termed Suraj? And is not Suraj a name for the planet Saturn? [36] It will not do to ignore these oft-repeated data. The ithyphallic Hermes, Greek version of the Roman Mercury. V Not being able to ignore the mytho-historical strength that lies behind the reconstruction of the Saturnian scenario, James finally offers his own interpretation of it. Focusing on Greek myth, especially as presented by Hesiod, he reiterates the genealogy of the gods, and the ages in which they ruled- Ouranos, who was followed by ...

... possibly by an Etruscan master, and the twins were added only several centuries ago. The wolf of Rome and the Mars-Ares of Aeneas' may not have been far apart. Already in antiquity and possibly based upon the word of Herodotus alone, the Trojan wars had been placed in remote antiquity, the XII and XIII centuries. When the Romans came to deal with this date, they found that their tradition of Romulus as founder of the city proper in the VIII century (753,747, etc) was impossibly disconnected with the Trojans, who now seemed to have disappeared four centuries earlier. Thereupon at the end of the III century B.C ., Q. ...

... . I suppose the name connects itself with the god Perun. Mr. Consul h. S. A. Bourne, in his valuable Journey in South Western China 25 mentions "on the road from Na-chi Hsien square pillars of stone, carved at the top to represent the head of Amita Buddha. At a distance they look just like Roman terminal statues, and are loaded with votive offerings." There can be no doubt that Amita the Immeasurable is chief of all Buddhas. His heaven is the Pure Land, Sukhavati (in Japanese Buddhism, Jo-do), and he is invoked in Japan oftener than any other Buddhic power, in the well-known formula corrupted in the common ...

... deity in a later myth is said to shed one water that turns to blood, and also a liquid source of life, which was typified as wax or sperm. The long sperm candle is still held to be a sign of the "Light of the World," symbol of the Messiah, as is the tallest candle of the Roman church, while the red source is preserved or symbolized in the red wafer used by the Papists. The Divine Tear was a type of creative power in Egypt, and the Tears of the Gods were said to be the supernal waters.
