... related to anthropology, seems at the present moment to be standing in a state of dubitant expectancy, willing to work a little tentatively, but conscious of its destitution of the needful primal datum, and conscious of its consequent lack of a valid structural law. To the believer in Revelation, or even in the most ancient and venerable Ethnic Traditions, the volume here presented will be found to possess uncommon interest. For many years the public mind has been schooled in a narrow naturalism, which has in its world-view as little room for the extraordinary as it has for the supernatural. Decade after decade the representatives of this teaching have been measuring the natural phenomena of every age and ...
2. The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Proceedings of The Third Seminar of Catastrophism and Ancient History (1986) Home | Issue Contents The Early Assyrian King List, The Genealogy of the Hammurapi Dynasty, and the "Greater Amorite" Tradition Herbert A. Storck The Assyrian Kinglist (AKL) [1 ] is one of the most important chronographic texts ever uncovered. Initially it was thought to represent a long unbroken tradition of rulership over Assyria. A closer look at the AKL by Landsberger,[2 ] however, dispelled this somewhat facile approach to AKL tradition. Subsequent studies by Kraus[3 ] and Finkelstein [4 ] on the earliest portion of the AKL have demonstrated a common underlying Amorite tradition ...
... by scholars at the time, have been confirmed by later investigations, the validity of this explanation for a presumed chronological error amounting to a plurality of centuries remained unconfirmed. Yet certain of the evidences offered in support of the altered chronological structure were quite convincing, and the proposed revision provided solutions to a number of major difficulties that characterize the traditional views. On the other hand, it has not been demonstrated that the evidence of either Scripture or archaeology for the periods before and after that encompassed by his thesis (from the Exodus through the Amarna Period) can be fitted satisfactorily into this altered structure. The same shortcoming holds for areas of the ancient world other than Egypt. ...
4. Ladder to Heaven [Journals] [Aeon]
... Jacob's ladder appears as if out of thin air, with little regard for context or a commonsense understanding of the natural world. It is as if the story's original background had been lost to the redactors of the Old Testament. Whatever the circumstances behind the decision to include the story in its present minimalist form, it is evident that the tradition of Jacob's ladder was deemed too important to be omitted entirely. That the Biblical account of Jacob's ladder contains ideas of great antiquity and popularity has long been noted. [2 ] Indeed, the ladder-to-heaven motif can be found on all inhabited continents. The present study will offer a cross-cultural analysis of the ladder-to-heaven and discuss its relationship to ...

6. The Hebrew Patriarchs in Greek Tradition (Part I) [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1989 No 1 (May 1989) Home | Issue Contents The Hebrew Patriarchs in Greek Tradition (Part I)by Anthony H. Rees In C & C Workshop 1988:2 , pp. 7-9, this author presented a paper titled The Israelites and the 18th Dynasty'. It showed how some Jewish traditions could be construed as pointing towards an Israelite sojourn in 18th Dynasty Egypt. The details in those traditions seem to link Joseph's rise to power with the first regnal year of young king Amenhotep I, and Jacob's entry with his 9th year when severe earthquakes struck the land [1 ] and a significant new calendar was introduced [ ...
7. Catastrophism And Planetary History [Journals] [Kronos]
... de Chardin, in his opus, The Phenomenon of Man, while mired in an evolutionary framework of interpretation that required him to describe the emergence of our species as a simultaneous event around the globe, identified five river systems as nearly contemporaneous places of origin. Even restricting our view to coincide with Teilhard's we almost always retreat immediately to the traditional view of human endeavors originating in their most significant form in the Tigris-Euphrates valley system thus continuing the outmoded and narrow articulation of our history as predominantly western European. Some historians attempt to dodge the question by suggesting that "history" does not begin until there are written records and while the Chinese and Mayans claim some credit in this department ...
8. The Milky Way [Journals] [Aeon]
... " of astrology, equally incredible is a central tenet of conventional archaeo-astronomy- that the myths and legends sur-rounding the various stars and constellations actually had their origin in the peaceful appearance and mundane movements of those celestial bodies. A greater fallacy it would be difficult to find. Take whichever asterism you please and there is no making sense of the traditions surrounding it in terms of its present appearance. How could such a situation arise? Since the inauguration of this journal eight years ago, our readers have been inundated with evidence that the solar system has only recently been subject to wholesale changes; that great cataclysms wreaked havoc with the ancient heavens, displacing "suns" and launching planets ...
9. The Death of Heracles [Journals] [Aeon]
... become so preoccupied with presenting Heracles' physical agony that he loses sight of Deianeira, his truly great tragic creation, and the artistic integrity of the whole piece is correspondingly impaired. (11) Linforth, similarly, suggested that the hero's death on the funeral pyre was appended at the end of the play in order to conform with the traditional account of the hero's death, much to the detriment of the unity of the play. Of Sophocles' deference to tradition this critic observed: He has written a play which is marked by the ingenuity of the plot and by the delicate art with which he has depicted the character and changing moods of Deianeira and the grim personality of ...
10. Thundergods and Thunderbolts [Journals] [Aeon]
... From: Aeon VI:1 (Feb 2001) Home | Issue Contents Thundergods and Thunderbolts Ev Cochrane It is the unanimous view of scholars exploring comparative religion that the peculiar mythical traditions surrounding thunderbolts and lightning originated in primitive man's awe before the thunderstorm. Davidson's opinion may be cited as representing the orthodox position: "To people of an earlier civilization, living in vulnerable houses of wood or in tents and caves, such a sight as this [a major thunderstorm] must have been terrifying indeed. It is not surprising then that thunder is visualized, in lands where storms are frequent, as the manifestation of divine power, and symbolized accordingly throughout the world." [ ...
