81. The Date of Carthage?s Founding [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... early as the Orientalizing period of the eighth and early seventh centuries with the rivalry of Greek and Phoenician settlers in the West, and culminated with Alexander ? s capture of Tyre in the fourth century, Rome ? s defeat of Carthage after the exhausting Punic wars of the third, and Carthage ? s destruction in the second. Carthage had been the focus of Phoenician presence in the West for many hundred of years before it was leveled to the ground by the Romans in -146. The Roman historian Appian gave a round figure of seven centuries for Carthage ? s existence, which would imply a date for its founding about the middle of the ninth century. Timaeus, the Greek chronographer, gave the year -814 as the date of Carthage ? s founding (1) by Dido or Elissa, who had fled with a group of followers from the hands of her murderous brother Pygmalion, king of Tyre. Josephus dated Dido ? s flight 155 years after the accession of Hiram, the ally of David and Solomon, that is, in -826. Another tradition ...
82. An Interview for Television with Immanuel Velikovsky [Horus $]
... Don Riggs of WPXI (then WIIC.) Television of Pittsburgh, was invited to interview Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky at the Velikovsky home in Princeton, New Jersey. Dr. Velikovsky conversed at length on camera with Mr. Riggs in the Fall of 1977. The following is an edited and abridged transcript of that conversation. Early on, Mr. Riggs asked Dr. Velikovsky to describe the remembrance of his early education at Medvednikov Gymnasium. He recalled that his family moved from Vitebsk in Latvia, to Moscow when he was almost seven specifically because- Dr. Velikovsky:... my mother wished to give us, her three Sons, the best possible education, and for that reason she strove to come to Moscow and live there... My father had to be registered as a- oh, a man of special qualifications in order to be, after several years, admitted for settlement in Moscow. In Moscow he succeeded in placing my elder brother- I was the third- and myself in the gymnasium... I was already ...
83. The Seven-Day War [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... New York Post SUNDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1948 The Seven-Day War The Egyptians are Weak with the Sword but Strong with Their Mouths By OBSERVER In the seven days of fighting between the southern army of Israel and the Royal Army of Egypt, the Egyptian troops have taken a beating on hip and thigh. The Israel have smashed the army of Farouk along the entire front, cut off the troops of Jerusalem and Bethlehem from every line of communication with Egypt, captured Beersheba and other strongholds, and slashed to ribbons the royal army on the coast. On Oct. 21 the New York Times correspondent radioed that there were ? signs of panic in the positions still held by the Egyptians.? ? The Israel army fought on with increasing success... The Egyptian troops remaining in the Negev were in a bad way, and the fall of Beersheba threatened those about Jerusalem with a similar fate.? On the same day and on the same page of the New York Times the Cairo correspondent quoted an official source of the Egyptian government as declaring that ? ...
84. The Celestial Clock [SIS Internet Digest $]
... From: SIS Internet Digest 2002:2 (Dec 2002) Home¦ Issue Contents The Celestial Clock www.celestialclock.com The Celestial Clock employs a unified theory of natural cyclicity, which reaches apocalyptic proportions in every 11,500- 23,000 years. The book reveals the sacred symbology of the Seven Stars of Pleiades, serpents, dragons, scorpions, lamb and bull along with indisputable scientific proof that the Mayan Calendar is based on the 23,000 year ice volume collapse cycles recently discovered in ocean sedimentation and ice core drill down studies from Greenland and Antarctica. It is the dominant cycle of the "100,000" year Milankovitch ice age theory. The ancient prophets, seers, shamans, and medicine men knew about these natural apocalyptic cycles and tried their best to warn us through using animal symbology constructed from star constellations to teach us a cosmic size lesson using the Earth as the hand of a clock and the sky as the face of the clock. It is no coincidence that Revelation of the Bible talks about "red fiery dragon" and the ...
85. The First Greeks in Egypt [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... the archaeologist of that place. Does this mean that Lydians and Ionians were present in Egypt when the Israelites were there in bondage? If, as many scholars believe, Ramses II was the Pharaoh of Oppression, the presence of soldiers from the Aegean-Anatolian region in the Delta in his days in the days of his father Seti would signify a meeting of Greek and Israelite peoples in pre-Exodus Egypt. The problem thus stated will not appeal to those same historians. The explanation of the presence of Greek mercenaries in the army of Seti, seven hundred years before Psammetichos, is simple: Seti was the Psammetichos of Herodotus and other Greek writers, and he lived seven hundred years after the time assigned to him by modern historians. References Luckenbill, Records of Assyria, II, Sec. 784. Ibid., Sec. 785. Assurbanipal called the Egyptian king who received military support from Gyges, Tusharniiki. It is known that at that time Psammetichos became the sole king of Egypt. The Assyrian kings occasionally gave Egyptian cities and Egyptian kings Assyrian names. Assurbanipal called ...
86. The Reign of King Hezekiah [Velikovsky Archive Website]
... amounting to a decade or even decades comes to light if Hezekiah was already on the throne in Jerusalem three full years before the fall of Samaria, or in -725. Reigning for twenty-nine years, he must have ended his reign and life in -696. These figures, or small variants of them, are also accepted by a few scholars. (1) But if Sennacherib invaded Judah in -701, and this should be Hezekiah ? s fourteenth year, then this king of Jerusalem must have started to reign in -715, or seven years after the accepted date for the fall of Samaria (2), and there is a disagreement of ten to eleven years. Could it be that Hezekiah after the fall of Samaria was not yet a sole ruler but a co-ruler with Ahaz, his father, and those years should not count in the twenty-nine, assigned to him as king? Or should the date of the fall of Samaria be lowered? The problem connected with Hezekiah ? s reign is not limited to this issue alone. When Hezekiah fell sick he ...
87. Thoth Vol. II, No. 11 June 30, 1998 [Thoth Website]
... , it was then safe to venture out into the world again. "Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; "But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. "And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; "And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. "And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.".... Comments by DWARDU CARDONA: Precisely.

88. Review: <i>Essays on the Patriarchal Narratives</i> by A.R. Millard and D. J. Wiseman, Eds [Catastrophism & Ancient History Journal $]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History V:2 (July 1983) Home¦ Issue Contents BOOK REVIEWS Essays on the Patriarchal Narratives (Review) A.R. Millard and D. J. Wiseman, Eds Reviewed by Herb Storck The absolutely latest word on the patriarchal narratives has just rolled off the presses (published by Eisenbrauns, Winona Lake, Indiana, $9.95). Altogether seven papers comprise this book. They run the gamut from textual criticism, archaeology, comparative customs, religion, to literary analysis. The work is essentially concerned with -redressing the imbalance created by two high profile works of the last decade-- J. van Seters' Abraham in History and Tradition (1975), and T. L. Thompson's The Historicity of the Patriarchal Narratives (1974). Their studies were highly critical of Biblical traditions, but for essentially different reasons. The Essays for all intents and purposes succeeds in correcting the problem. Within its pages are found not only discussions of old theories and approaches to the question of Abraham, but also fresh directions, ...
89. Plasma and World Mythology [Thunderbolts Website]
... they faced when serpents, dragons, or other monsters invaded their celestial domain. A comparison of the themes in these myths — the plots, the characters, the details of divine habitations and relationships — reveals two enigmatic forms of parallelism: First, among widely separated cultures the same mythic themes stand out, and these archetypes are all intimately linked to each other. The land of the gods was a luminous enclosure or turning wheel. It rested upon a mountain rising to the center of heaven. The mountain became a tower of seven or nine levels or tiers. A dragon, demon, or monster once held a princess captive in the tower. The warrior-hero slew the dragon and rescued the princess. Cross cultural comparison has now documented many hundreds of such archetypes — far too many to be explained by any common view of human history, either archaic or modern. Second, we find that widespread cultures preserved the same improbable parallels in their complex mythic interpretations of the underlying events. The land of the gods was not just a “place” in the ...
90. Stacked Ancestors [Thunderbolts Website]
... modern terms, this concept is expressed by the totem pole ’ s function as a heraldic crest, whose animals are comparable to the lions, eagles, and dragons gracing the coats of arms of European nobility. Archaeologists have so far not been able to trace the custom of totem-pole carving back for thousands of years, but the importance of the theme of "stacked ancestors" in a cross-cultural mythical tradition suggests a venerable antiquity. The theme taps into the universal shamanic or mythological tradition of a string of divine beings, often counted seven to nine in number, that descended from the sky by means of a heaven-spanning pillar, tree, mountain, or rope. The Tshi people of Ghana, for example, speak of “a great chain” that was once “let down from heaven to earth with seven men hanging on it”, who became the ancestors of the nation. Such traditions are remarkably common. It would seem that the carved pillars represent a relatively modern artistic expression of an age-old motif that was previously handed down orally. As the natives ...
