231. The Scenario of Exodus [Books] [de Grazia books]
... let the Pharaoh let the people go? Why was it necessary to visit every single plague upon the helpless country? Why is everyone concerned - Moses, Yahweh, the Pharaoh and all others who participated in or reported the events - willing and ready to let the plagues run their full course? Childs, for example speaks of the "strange atmosphere which surrounds the plague stories," of "the extravagant length of the stories," and of "a pervading quality of historical distance" not characterizing miracles such as that of Elijah on Carmel [4 ]. He wonders at the "mystery of Pharaoh's resistance" and "the ultimate strangeness of the plague narrative." ...

... that he succeeded so well in the order of his government, and in piety with regard to the Divine worship. And this happened because the transgressions of the former kings were seen no more, but quite vanished away; for the king went about the city, and the whole country, and cut down the groves which were devoted to strange gods, and overthrew their altars; and if there were any gifts dedicated to them by his forefathers, he made them ignominious, and plucked them down; and by this means he brought the people back from their opinion about them to the worship of God. He also offered his accustomed sacrifices and burnt-offerings upon the altar. Moreover ...

234. A Failed Excursion to the Caves of Aquitaine [Books] [de Grazia books]
... way that is expected. When the mind lacks coherence, everything lacks meaning. When the environment is confusing, it is difficult to be coherent. Why be so abstract when the simple fact is that I have been struggling for three days merely to keep pace with a group that is moving all the time with little sense of itself through strange country and unanticipated petty troubles of existence. The beds have been bad, the meals poor, the bus-riding tortuous and prolonged, the days of forced company ranged around the clock... What is the writer to do? But most of all, the prehistoric times as they are advancing towards me from Aquitaine are a rough and ...

... the Cenotaph. Professor Murray's fine book has long been out of print, and the chief reference, that by Frankfort, had to be obtained by the author from the UCLA library, in photocopy. Had this monument been less impressive, such a paucity of material might be rational. As things stand, this scarcity of available information seems strange indeed. [* See E. Otto, Ancient Egyptian Art: The Cults of Osiris and Amon (N .Y ., 1967), p. 54.] The Cenotaph itself is a strange building. Its defiance of anticipated patterns, unique architectural status, the appearance of oval "cartouche" geometry (without the slightest ...

... joined to the mountain, somewhat easier of ascent than the other; but then the people belonging to the place have cut an oblique ditch there, and made that hard to be ascended also. On its acclivity, which is straight, houses are built, and those very thick and close to one another. The city also hangs so strangely, that it looks as if it would fall down upon itself, so sharp is it at the top. It is exposed to the south, and its southern mount, which reaches to an immense height, was in the nature of a citadel to the city; and above that was a precipice, not walled about, but ...

... scourge" would not harm them when it "passed through" the land of Judah (Isaiah 28.15). This scourge was then described in the following terms: "For the LORD shall rise up as in Mount Perazim, He shall be wroth as in the Valley of Gibeon, that He may do His work, His strange work; and bring to pass His act, His strange act" (Isaiah 28.21). This strange act, the reversal of the Sun's direction, was similar to the celestial disturbance of Joshua's time. Thus, in depicting a contemporary catastrophe, Isaiah's words harked back to an event so momentous that his meaning could not ...

239. Early Historic Man - Catastrophism and Calendars [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... I don't have to talk to you about the Sothic cycle in Egypt. It is supposed to be proven that the astronomical chronology of Edward Meyer (of 1904), which has slowly taken over the chronology of Egypt, is based on sure and demonstrated, apparently, astronomical computation. But that computation is based on one of the most strange axioms: it is supposed a priori that we have to accept that even before the Pleistocene the solar year was 365.25 days. I have challenged in the last twenty years the whole scientific world to prove that... and I am still waiting! It is an axiom, it is something they oblige you to accept ...

The waters are represented to have poured out of an oven ; a strange fable, said to be borrowed from the Persian Magi, who represented them as issuing from the oven of an old woman.J All men were drowned, save Noah and his family ; and then God said, " earth, swallow up thy waters ; and thou, heaven, withhold thy rain ;" and immediately the waters ...
