161. The Biblical 40-Years Periods [Journals] [SIS Review]
... commanded by Joseph. Many other instances of 40-year periods were collected by Hirzel from Greek and Roman writers. The Arabs use 40 frequently as a round' number. He quotes from the Koran: ' .. . till he reached his full strength and attained the age of forty years' and states that these are words which explain the tradition that Mohammed received his call to be a prophet at the age of 40 .. .'. He notes that, according to Brugsch, 40 years' in Persian today means nothing more than many years'. The name of the centipede in Persia translates as forty-foot'; the Turks call the same creature forty-footed'. Lepsius ...
162. The Mystery Of The Pleiades [Journals] [Kronos]
... see "Khima and Kesil" by Velikovsky elsewhere in this issue.- The Ed] 2. The Controversy. Writing in 1973, Donald Patten, in collaboration with R. R. Hatch and L. C. Steinhauer, also came to the conclusion that Aish, Khima, and Khesil were to be understood as planets. "Traditional commentaries suppose that these three are constellations, whereas actually they were visible planets moving across the constellation areas"(10) When it came to identifying these planets, however, Patten, et al. differed considerably from Velikovsky. "Our supposition is that Arcturus [Aish] was Mars, Orion [Khesil] was Jupiter, Pleiades ...
163. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Four [Books]
... goddess." If one is bemoaning the fact that one's homeland has been overrun by an enemy under the auspices of the goddess Ishtar, why amen like this ? Come to that, if one is bemoaning the fact that a cosmic body has devastated one's homeland, why open like this I don't know- unless this line is simply a traditional epithet of Ishtar that has been slotted in without any real thought for its incongruity in its present setting. That then if amorous goddess" has been trotted out as a traditional formula', without real consideration for its applicability, perhaps some of the more apt epithets shouldn't be taken too literally either ? A point worth bearing in mind ...
164. The Ring About The Earth at 2300 BC [Journals] [SIS Review]
... worshipped by several groups of people in the 2300BC time period Britain's earliest mythology comprises successive invasions of Partholan's people, the Formorians, Nemedians, Firbolgs and the Tuatha de Danaan, dated from 2700-1900 BC (centred at 2300 BC). A number of investigators have voiced opinions that the sequence of invasions is an artificial chronological arrangement of originally separate traditions referring to the same event, based on similarities of names, activities and leaders. Interestingly, the same situation exists with the anthropomorphised historical Five Sovereigns of Chinese mythology - Hwang-ti, Shen-nung, Yao, Yu and Shun, dated between 2700 and 2200 BC. There is a sizeable amount of evidence for the mutual equivalence of the Five ...
165. The Origins of the Spartan State in the New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... over a period of 250 years, making an average reign length of 25 years. Combining both dynasties we get a total of 22 kings spanning 503 years which gives us an even more accurate average reign length of 22.86 years. I therefore propose to use a 23-year average reign length for the early Spartan kings, rather than the traditional 30-year generation currently in use in the modern literature, in order to obtain an approximate date for the beginning of the Spartan dynasties and consequently, as is constantly alluded to in the traditions, the date of the Dorian invasion itself. It should be noted at this point that the average reign length calculated from a much larger sample of ...
166. The Merlin 'Vision' and the 6th Century 'Event' [Journals] [SIS Review]
... and the upheaval of the 6th century. Could this tale of the vision' by the Merlin figure be a recollection of a fragmenting comet/asteroid event', with the tremendous din' being a Tunguska-like airburst? Could the given date of AD 573 for the battle of Arfderydd be out by 37 years? In South-East Wales, the tradition is that Arthur was King of Glamorgan and Gwent (Morganwg), being the son of King Meurig, who was son of King Tewdrig. Arthur' in old Welsh was Arthrwys, traditionally referred to as Arthrwys ap Meurig ap Tewdrig. There is still confusion about exact dates for specific Arthurian battles, which were fought along the length ...
167. The Subjective Interpretation Of The Events And Their Authenticity, Part 2 Mars Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... From "Worlds in Collision" © 1950 by Immanuel Velikovsky | FULL TEXT NOT AVAILABLE Contents The Subjective Interpretation Of The Events And Their Authenticity What helped to discredit the traditions of the peoples about the catastrophes was their subjective and magical interpretation of the events. The sea was torn apart. The people attributed this act to the intervention of their leader; he lifted his staff over the waters and they divided. Of course, there is no person who can do this, and no staff with which it can be done. Likewise in the case of Joshua who commanded the sun and the moon to halt in their movements. Because the scientific mind cannot bel ieve that a ...
168. A Collective Amnesia, Part 2 Mars Ch.6 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... tornadoes of cinders. There occurred more than one world conflagration; the most horrible one was in the days of the Exodus. In hundreds of passages in their Bible, the Hebrews described what happened. Returning from the Babylonian exile in the sixth and fifth centuries befo re this era, the Hebrews did not cease to learn and repeat the traditions, but they lost sight of the fearful reality of what they learned. Apparently, the post-Exile generations looked upon all these descriptions as the poetical utterances of religious l iterature. The talmudists in the beginning of this era disputed whether a deluge of fire, prophesied in old traditions, would take place or not; those who denied that ...
169. On The Other Side of the Ocean, Part 1 Venus Ch.1 (Worlds in Collision) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Worlds in Collision]
... position of the luminaries implies that the sun was in the forenoon position.(1 ) The Book of Joshua says that the luminaries stood in the midst of the sky. Allowing for the difference in longitude, it must have been early morning or night in the Western Hemisphere. We go to the shelf where stand books with the historical traditions of the aborigines of Central America. The sailors of Columbus and Cortes, arriving in America, found there literate peoples who had books of their own. Most of these books were burned in the sixteenth century by the Dominican monks. Very few of the ancient manuscripts survived, and these are preserved in the libraries of Paris, the ...
170. Planets in the Bible: I -- The Cosmology of Job [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Abraham's brother (6 ). Job's vast wealth in sheep, camels, oxen and asses is also consistent with the life-style and livelihood of the Patriarchs (7 ). The general consensus was that he was a grandson of Esau: this would place him in the same pre-Exodus period as if he were a son of Issachar. Jewish tradition also places the friends of Job generally as pre-Exodus, having Bildad, Zophar and Elibu as grandsons of Buz the son of Esau. Job figures in Islamic tradition, too. He is mentioned in several suras of the Koran as the servant of Allah who underwent hardship (4 :161; 21:83-4; 38:40-43) ...
