121. Folklore: Its Stability and Self-correcting Power [Journals] [Horus]
... great step forward. According to the consensus of scholars that the Gudrun Epic was little more than a fairy tale in three parts, of which the middle part possibly reflected some historical events. According to its style, it first was committed to writing in the 13th Century A.D . Hildegard Wiencke-Lotz has offered a new view of these traditions and their origins in the history of the ancient world. Through years of travel and study centered on the Gudrun stories, she has developed extensive evidence that the Gudrun Epic is an ancient oral tradition representing a unified whole which loses its meaning when the three parts are considered separately. She argues that the entire Gudrun Epic has a sound ...
... Baby lonian and Hebrew thought were adjusted to an earth utterly un-disklike in form, and to a system of heavens above heavens whose com position was as far removed from earthly metals as it was from the silk or the goat s hair of Psa. 104. 2, and Isa. 40. 22. Despite all that the rehearsers of traditional cosmology say, or rather because of what they say, and because of the inconsistencies in which they con tinually involve themselves, one long-interested student believes that their attempted recon struction of the Hebrew and earlier Semitic universe is pitiably mistaken, and that the eminent American astronomer, Newcomb, is far nearer the truth when he pens this deliberate ...
123. Untitled [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Exodus, Date of," in the revised edition of the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 1982). While the attempt there was to be as objective as possible about the two proposals, the perceptive reader will note that the fifteenth-century date is favored. In recent times an extensive challenge has been brought against the traditional chronology employed by Egyptologists. The thrust of this challenge is to suggest that particular persons and events which fall in a relative chronological relation to each other should be modified in terms of the absolute dates applied to them. Six centuries are suggested for the magnitude of this chronological telescoping of data. This means that Thutmose III, a candidate ...
124. The Homeric Question [Journals] [SIS Review]
... it was concluded that somebody who knew something about the beginning of the world appeared older than someone who talked about the Trojan War. Apparently there is already a significant time gap in the various Greek chronologies for Homer: between the Fall of Troy (dated to the 12th century BC by classical Greek chronology) and the times of Archilochos (traditionally dated to the 7th century BC) there is a time difference of almost 500 years. If, in contrast, one adapts a revised chronology as suggested by Velikovsky, then all ancient authors may well be correct. If we apply Velikovsky's scheme to the Homeric Question, then the Greek epics originated both during the destruction of the Mycenaean ...
... "That water in sooth hath been digested by me. Some other expedient, therefore, must be thought of by you, if ye desire to make endeavour to fill the ocean." It was this sad state of things which made it necessary to bring the Galaxy "down." This is reminiscent of the detail in the Jewish tradition about Eben Shetiyyah, that the waters sank down so 264 deeply that David had to recite the "fifteen songs of ascension" to make them rise again. Now Agastya, the great Rishi, had a "sordid" origin similar to that of Erichthonios (Auriga), who was born of Gaia, "the Earth," ...
126. Jerusalem -- City of Venus [Journals] [Kronos]
... evoked, through millennia of time, the sustained sense of holiness affiliated with Jerusalem. Already in pre-Israelite days, Melchizedek, "priest of the Most High God" (Genesis 14:18) held sway over the site; and later on, the ritualistic actions of Hebrew Kings, Gospel accounts of the life of Jesus, and Moslem tradition all served to reinforce, intensify, and perpetuate the sanctity of the city. Today, "Jerusalem is embedded in the memory and hopes of a world. Its fascination is not limited to visitors of any one, or even any, religious attitude. In this city. . the past, the present, and the future all ...
127. The Cosmic Double Helix [Journals] [Aeon]
... helix is too complex to survive oral transmission unscathed. Mythology itself bristles with references to double serpents, double ropes, and so on, but it is exceedingly rare to find that these pairs were actually intertwined with each other, even less that they were also wrapped around the central axis. Elsewhere I propose that myths, rituals, and traditional icons represent a triad of cognate, equivalent, and interchangeable symbols, helping to understand how icons can illuminate myths and vice versa. The significance of the present article, however, reaches beyond the presentation of material in favour of a double helix archetype. For if the caduceus and other sacred staffs really represent the axis mundi, the ...
128. Fomenko and English History [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Dean at the Nottingham Trent University On the Internet pages of the Russian mathematician, A.T .Fomenko, is a 64-page work, in English, by Fomenko and G.V .Nosovskij, entitled New hypothetical chronology and concept of the English history [1 ]. In this, Fomenko and Nosovskij attempt a complete revision of the traditional English chronology. They provide the following abstract of their arguments (slightly amended for ease of reading): This article is devoted to the investigation of the traditional version of English chronology and English history. It should be mentioned that this tradition was established only in the 15-17th cc. (and especially by Scaliger and Petavius) as a ...
129. New Scenarios for Solar System Evolution [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... more importantly for the consequences on the dating of the Homo Sapiens history on the Earth (radiocarbon, dendrochronological and radiometrical dating techniques). The problem of climatic variations and glaciations in the late pleistocene and holocene, so important to understand the Homo Sapiens past, is discussed. Two particular topics that have always fascinated man, namely the deluge traditions and the antiquity of the great Giza Sphynx, are discussed from the geologist point of view. The session on anthropology reviews work done by genetists and linguists, that shows a tree of evolution of human presence in the world from a very likely unique original source. Evidence of contacts before Columbus between America and Europe will be discussed. ...
130. A Chart to Illustrate the Conquest of Canaan [Journals] [SIS Review]
... 2-7) Dr Bimson argued that the Conquest, in terms of the revised chronology, must be associated with the destructions of the Middle Bronze Age cities of Palestine. The accompanying table clearly shows this new placement to be preferable when the archaeological evidence is set against the Biblical records. The accompanying table includes only those cities concerning which the Biblical tradition is unequivocal and which are located with a good measure of agreement. Only Debir fits into the conventional scheme without problems. While some sites fit with difficulty, seven (over half) do not fit the scheme at all, lacking cities at the appropriate time. All fit the revised scheme except Ai. Note that D. Livingston ...
