181. Let There Be Darkness: An Archetypal Analysis of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich [Journals] [Aeon]
... : An Archetypal Analysis of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich Lewis M. Greenberg INTRODUCTION The emergence of Adolf Hitler on the world stage unleashed an ensuing conflagration and rain of ruin unparalleled in the annals of human history. Yet, all attempts to comprehend Hitler and the complexities of World War II, in a wholly satisfactory man-ner, fail by traditional historical method-ology. In the words of Robert Payne: "The rise of Adolf Hitler to supreme power is one of those events in world history which are almost totally inexplicable in any rational terms...He erupted like a force of nature, a tornado or a hurricane, destroying everything in his path, and even now, ...
182. A New Interpretation of the Assyrian King List [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... c. 1000-748 B.C .3 may have as much to do with an artificially stretched out Assyrian chronology as much as the usual reason concerning the random nature of archaeological finds. Whatever the case, Mitcham does present a tentatively attractive chronological reinterpretation of the Assyrian Kinglist (AKL) while avoiding any direct conflict with the later limmu list tradition. Some minor and major concerns need to be addressed at this point. The minor points shall be cited first. Mitcham needs to revise his comments on the relative dates of the five AKL exemplars in light of expert opinion.4 The abbreviation "SKL" should not be used for Synchronistic Kinglist as it is already in vogue for ...
183. Celestial fireworks [Journals] [SIS Internet Digest]
... alien sky that inspired the myths and symbols of our forebears based on patterns in myth, ritual, and symbolism. Celestial fireworks' is a series of pictures that can serve as a model with which ancient mythology, ritual and symbolism can be understood. These pictures are based on a detailed reconstruction of patterns that pervade a universal lost' tradition. They illustrate a sequence of highly dramatic events that loomed over the heads of our ancestors and inspired them to create stories, sacred dramas and buildings – in short – all of civilisation, for the entire ancient world strived after only one aim: to revive the celestial age of the gods The presentation consists of three parts, which ...
184. The el-Amarna Letters and the New Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... main Conquest phase occurring much later, in the reigns of Ramesses II or Merenptah, some 130 years after the Amarna period. On the other hand, Moshe Greenberg, in his definitive study of the habiru, notes that The most striking parallels by far are found in the story of David's outlawry', whilst Mendenhall observes that In biblical tradition there are repeated examples of the sort of phenomena associated with the Amarna GAZ. The clearest example is that of David. ' There is a good case, then, for the Amarna habiru/SA.GAZ to be a better match for the activities of the Hebrews of the time of Saul and David than those earlier Hebrews of ...
185. Out of the Desert? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Narratives', is a scholarly and stimulating contribution to the continuing debate about the archaeological and historical contexts of the Exodus and the Israelite conquest of Canaan. In the Introduction the author claims, in relation to challenges to the orthodox interpretations and chronology, that no work has discussed this new evidence and critically evaluated the revisionist theories against the more traditional views. ' Moreover: "none has tried to understand these events as part of the larger social and cultural collapse that was taking place throughout the Eastern Mediterranean at the end of the Bronze Age." Chapter I - Textual and archaeological evidence' - provides a useful summary of numerous anachronisms and discrepancies found in Old Testament texts from ...
... ogres, whose last king, named Balor, of the Evil Eye, slew his enemies with a flash of his fiery orb. He resembled the Cyclops, reputedly Titans, with one eye in the centre of the forehead which flashed fire of a magic order. That giants dwelt in the British Isles in a prehistoric day is authenticated by tradition and archaeology. In rare cases their bones have been unearthed, but generally they have disintegrated into dust. Cornwall is traditionally a former home of huge men, their presence preserved in nomenclature as at Trecrobbin Hill, where are found Giant's Cradle, Giant's Spoon, and Giant's Well. In 1761 tin miners at Tregony-on-the-Fal discovered in an early ...
187. The Lord Of Light [Journals] [Aeon]
... of Jesus' birth and resurrection and thus has no right to pass judgment on their historicity. On the other hand the historian is qualified to estimate the historical significance of the pattern and its vital importance for the nascent Christian movement as embodied in the person of its Master. A number of coincidences between a literal sequence of events and a traditional pattern are necessary before the former can be appropriated by the latter. (4 ) The many conflicting accounts of Jesus' birth have only served to accentuate the intangible and supernatural character of the event which, doubtless, was the desired intent of Christian theology in the first place. One thing is certain, though: from the outset ...
188. Pharaoh So and the Libyan Dynasty [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... to the time of the other Libyans: both Osorkon II5 and Sheshonq III6 saw a Velikovskian catastrophe. Being unaware of Velikovsky's 163rd thesis, I studied the consequences of an identification of Sheshonq I and So in the Summer of 1978. I lowered the beginning of the 22nd Dynasty to ca 730. Manetho gives the dynasty 120 years, while traditional chronology is more prodigious: 230 years (945-715 B.C .) . I found it better to stay with Manetho. Then, the 23rd Dynasty, in fact a branch of the 22nd, began to rule during the period ca 730 - ca 610, let us say in the first half of the 7th century. Petubastet ...

... hung as a fog. The veil left by the gaseous trail of the hostile star and the smoke of the volcanoes caused darkness, not complete, but profound. This condition prevailed for decades, and only very gradually did the dust subside and the water vapours condense. "A vast night reigned over all the American land, of which tradition speaks unanimously: in a sense the sun no longer existed for this ruined world which was lighted up at intervals only by frightful conflagrations, revealing the full horror of their situation to the small number of human beings that had escaped from these calamities."(6 ) "Following the cataclysm caused by the waters, the author of ...

... have been of legendary character. In this he differed from several authors, like J.K . Fotheringham, who regarded these text as historical. Kugler was therefore called upon, as the highest authority in his field, by Otto Neugebauer to disprove my discourse on world catastrophes caused by extraterrestrial agents and generally my interpretation of ancient legends and traditions as reflecting true natural events. However, before Kugler completed the last volume of his monumental work of Babylonian astronomy, he had published a short essay, "The Sibylline Star War and Phaëton in the Light of Natural History ." (1 ) I came across it when I restudied Kugler, following the attack by Neugebauer. In ...
