21. More on Ancient Astronomy [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 1999:1 (Apr 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents More on Ancient Astronomy Wed, 27 Jan 1999 From Bob Kobres <firstname.lastname@example.org> A bit more about the value of ancient observations, as well as other non-planet associations with the number SEVEN, from Judith Kingston Bjorkman's Meteors and the Ancient Near East (Meteoritics 1973, 8, pp 91-132). [Page 92-93: Almost all of the astromantic texts which speak of meteors, etc., are of a type also known as celestial omens. An example of such a text is the following (Thompson, 1900, 202 obv. lines 5 to 9): If a shooting star flashes (as bright) as a light or as a torch from east to west and disappears (on the horizon): the army of the enemy will be slain in its onslaught. To those trained in the physical sciences, such a description may seem hopelessly subjective and unrelated to reality. However, a closer acquaintance with omen literature will show the reverse to be ...
22. The Mark Of The Beast [Kronos $]
... the Apocalypse as Hitler. With such an age-worn tradition behind us, surely it is permitted to scrutinize the puzzle once again, in terms of the new developments in 1985 and 1986. Revelation 13:1 states that John saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea. Revelation 17:15 explains that this emerging from the sea means from among the nations. This seems to suggest that the wild beast stands for a political entity. Revelation 13:1 goes on to describe this supposed political entity as having ten horns and seven heads. Revelation 17:12 explains the horn imagery to stand for kings or, in modern parlance, heads of state. Likewise, Revelation 17:10 seems to equate heads as well with kings, or heads of state. But what political entity could have both ten and at the same time seven heads of state? Here we might think of the Kremlin's organization, where there are both ten current members of the Politburo(2) and also seven current dictators of the Eastern European Communist block (those of the ...
23. Hammurabi and the Revised Chronology [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... sixth century until the conquest of his land by Cyrus. Whereas his son and co-ruler, Belshazzar, occupied himself with the administration of the land, Nabonidus indulged in an avocation: he showed a marked interest in archaeology, and excavated the foundations of ancient temples, looking for old inscriptions. 3 In the foundations of a temple at Larsa, Nabonidus found a plaque of King Burnaburiash. This king is known to us from the el-Amarna correspondence in which he participated. On that plaque Burnaburiash wrote that he had rebuilt the temple erected seven hundred years before by King Hammurabi. The el-Amarna letters, according to conventional chronology, were written about -1400. Thus, if Burnaburiash lived then, Hammurabi must have lived about -2100. When Egyptologists found it necessary to reduce the el-Amarna Age by a quarter of a century, the time of Hammurabi was adjusted accordingly, and placed in the twenty-first century before the present era. It was also observed: ? The period of the First Dynasty of Babylon has always been a landmark in early history, because by it the chronology ...
24. Crop Circle Roundup [Science Frontiers Website]
... Science Frontiers ONLINE No. 75: May-Jun 1991 Issue Contents Other pages Home Page Science Frontiers Online All Issues This Issue Sourcebook Project Sourcebook Subjects Crop Circle Roundup Summary of Britain's 1990 crop circles. "Over seven hundred circles were found in Britain in 1990, the earliest in April, the latest toward the end of August. They were spread across thirty counties, including Wales and Scotland, besides which there were numerous good reports of circles from Ireland, Holland, Bulgaria, Japan (at least twenty), Canada (over twenty), the U.S.A. and some other countires. The large British total was made possible because of the cooperation of so many enthusiasts via the nationwide CERES organisation. "As usual for Britain most circles were found in wheatfields, but there were some reports from fields of barley, rapeseed, linseed, and long grass grown for silage. In 1990, as in 1989, Wiltshire dominated the British scene with about 70% of the year's total. This year the leading counties were Wiltshire: over 400; Hampshire: over ...

Whereas his son and co-ruler, Belshazzar, occupied himself with the administration of the land, Nabonidus indulged in an avocation: he showed a marked interest in archaeology, and excavated the foundations of ancient temples, looking for old inscriptions.(2a) In the foundations of a temple at Larsa, Nabonidus found a plaque of King Burnaburiash.

26. Forum [SIS C&C Review $]
... 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 him by Joseph as being a fore-warning of a coming famine. Before the famine there were to be seven years of plenty, and then these would die away and the food crops would fail. 2. Joseph was appointed the controller of Egyeven good years and then seven years of famine? Secondly, the building material of those days was stone, and any storehouses that Joseph built were presumably built with this material. What has happened to these storehouses, and is there any archaeological evidence that we may consider in relation to these? The economy of Egypt depended then, as indeed it does now, on the river Nile, ...
27. In the Coils of the Serpent [Thunderbolts Website]
... Plasma Cosmology Society for Interdisciplinary Studies educational resources Aeon Journal Jan 03, 2005 In the Coils of the Serpent The Hellenistic era saw an upsurge of 'mystery' cults, all of which centered round the figure of a divine demiurge that had come down from heaven, separated heaven and earth, died and was resurrected. This character was variously known as Osiris, Dionysus, Atthis, Adonis, Aeon, Mithra, and so on. The worshippers of Mithra commonly represented their patron god as entwined by a serpent, typically forming six or seven coils. The statue shown above was produced in 190 A. D. and is presently housed in the Vatican Museum. Other gods, such as Aeon and Cronus, were portrayed in similar guise. That the Mithraists had a penchant for cosmic symbolism needs no argument. But what did the coils of the serpent signify? Because Mithra commonly represents the sun, specialists agree that the serpent must have some cosmological meaning. The standard interpretation is either that it symbolizes the spiraling course of the sun around the axis of the world ...

... as king. Keret rules from the city of Hubur (Hbr). Keret's massive army includes men of Asher ('atr) and Zebulun (zbl) [8. David one of the greatest heroes and most famous kings of Israel; ally of Hiram of Tyre (II Sam. 5:11). David, a favourite and servant of God, was noted for his beauty, nobility and generosity. David wears an ephod and dances before the Lord (II Sam. 6: 14). David rules from Hebron for seven years (II Sam. 5:5). David ruler of all Israel; fifty thousand warriors from Zebulun, forty thousand from Asher, attend his coronation in Hebron (I Chron. 12:33, 36). The Bereavements: "The house of the King was destroyed, The house which had seven brothers, Yea eight, sons of one mother." (GE, A, i, 7-9) All Keret's sons die by various means, after seven years; Keret falls asleep as he mourns, ...
29. The Dating of Hammurabi [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... [35 The next day word of the enemy came as follows: "Yapah-Adad has made ready the settlement Zallul on this side on the bank of the Euphrates River, and with two thousand troops of the Hapiru of the land, is dwelling in that city."... I had made ready the city of Himush.... This tablet of mine I send to my lord from the bank of the Euphrates River. The troops and cattle are well. David took from Hadarezer "a thousand chariots, and seven thousand horsemen, and twenty thousand footmen" (1 Chronicles 18:4). We learn that Shamshi-Adad reckons that his son Ishme-Dagan could rely upon having under his command 20,000 men, evidently the 20,000 infantrymen mentioned by the chnonicler.[36 The rallying point of the forces of Hadadezer was at Helam or Khelam (2 Samuel 10:16-17). The name Khelam is found in the Aramean tribe of Akhlamu.[37 The captain of Hadadezer's forces in the second battle against David was named Shobach ...
30. The Mystery Of The Pleiades [Kronos $]
... , the last question asked above was not really prompted by our zeal to find a new identity for Khima. It is quite obvious that the translators of the Book of Job had no inkling as to what Khima and Khesil really stood for. This is especially true when we remember that the same source, the Douay, translates Khima as Pleiades in one section and as Hyades in another. Khima and Khesil are also mentioned in the Book of Amos. Here, the King James version sticks to its translation of Pleiades (or seven stars) and Orion,(5) whereas the Douay, forsaking both the Pleiades and the Hyades, has Khima as Arcturus while reverting back to Orion for Khesil.(6) One may now argue that the King James and Douay versions are so late that they cannot be relied upon for any useful information. But even if we had to go back to the Vulgate and the Septuagint, we find that matters are no different. In the Greek version, the Septuagint, Khesil is translated as Hesperus (the Evening ...
