71. Catastrophism and Anthropology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review (1994) "Proceedings of the 1993 Cambridge Conference" Home | Issue Contents Catastrophism and Anthropology The Influence of Neo-Catastrophism on the Interpretation of Flood Rituals and Ceremonies Benny Josef Peiser School of Human Sciences, Liverpool John Moores University Introduction Only 150 years ago, most of Europe's leading scholars were convinced that the ancient flood traditions and festivals originated from natural catastrophes that had occurred during man's early history. Both historians and anthropologists were able to point to a rich variety of catastrophe legends found throughout the world. For more than 2500 years these ancient traditions were generally viewed as historical. Not only did all the famous scholars of antiquity write about these natural disasters but ...
72. Dating the Trojan War [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... . Thinking about consequences of the revised chronology on Greek history, one discovers that a main problem is finding a fixed point for Mycenaean chronology. Ancient historiography had centered it all around the Trojan War, and, indeed, it is useful to keep it there. The most important literary sources, unfortunately- as far as they favor the traditional chronology- suggest a date in the first decennia after 1200, whereas archaeologists prefer to date the sack of Troy about 1250, [2 ] showing that conventional chronology is not wholly sound. The Trojan War remains a common center in relative chronology, for in the semi-historical exploits of Mycenaean Age heroes there emerges a scheme of relative chronology ...
73. Velikovsky's Sources Volume Five [Books]
... David- long after the events of Sinai. On WIC p.99, V writes: "The earth, disturbed in its rotation, developed heat. The land surface became hot. Various sources of many peoples describe the melting of the earth' s surface and the boiling of the sea .. . Events underlying Greek and Mexican traditions are narrated in the Scriptures. The mountains shake with the swelling .. .. the earth melted. '" V here quotes from Is.46:3-6. Again, on WIC p.150, V writes of Atlantis that: "As if recalling what happened, the Psalmist prayed also: God is our refuge and ...
... did not exist at the time when Atlantis flourished and Luna was still an independent planet. There are a number of references to this state of things in Plato's Atlantis myth, including some which are very distinct in spite of Plato's general hesitation in geophysical matters. Greek mythology and ancient geography (whose `historical' information was largely dependent on traditional lore) seem to assume that the Mediterranean was only formed within human memory, so to speak, while the Ocean had existed longer than even the gods knew. A very significant reference occurs in the passage (23b) where the Egyptian priest asserts that though the Greeks remembered only one deluge `there were many before that'. ...
75. Moderating the Middle Ages [Journals] [SIS Review]
... warrant some examination, so let us first examine his treatment of British history. One would agree with his observations that old history gets lost with the publication of successive new textbooks and that descriptions of events happening a few centuries earlier may be secondary texts which differ substantially from the originals. However, in listing 6 Anglo-Saxon kingdoms instead of the traditional 7, The Heptarchy', he misses out Northumbria and East Anglia but includes Britain', which he equates with Brittany; neither of these were Saxon kingdoms. He is not the first to equate the legendary ancestor of the Britons with the honourable man, nor the Scots with the Scythians: this is an old favourite of the ...
76. Hittites and Phrygians [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... an insurmountable problem, but possesses historical precedents (post Exodus refugees from the Aegean in command of a superior technology), it would more logical to assume that those motifs reappearing fully developed in Hittite art of central Anatolia were transferred from Syria in the first millennium, during specifically the imperial period. Not only did the Hittites borrow from such traditions, but the Assyrians also imported temple design and artisans from the "land of Hatti."19 In the words of Ceram, "Hittite culture remains a mystery in many respects because no organic, no indisputably native style and characteristic, has been discerned." The most archaic monuments in Syria, such as those at 10th century ...

... bread, it is also said in the Talmud.(45) But if the manna fell from the clouds that enveloped the entire world, it must have fallen not only in the Desert of Wanderings, but everywhere; and not only the Israelites, but other peoples, too, must have tasted it and spoken of it in their traditions. There was a world fire, says the Icelandic tradition, followed by the Fimbul-winter, and only one human pair remained alive in the north. "This human pair lie hidden in the holt during the fire of Surt." Then came "the terrible Fimbul-winter at the end of the world [age]; meanwhile they feed ...
78. A Brief Summary of the Evidence for a Gap in the Bible and Much Earlier Dates for Many of its Major Events [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... a much shorter period, putting early and later material side by side. What is the Hard Evidence?In the late period, 1700-700 B.C ., how much hard evidence is there to corroborate the Hebrew account? Ignoring the explanations, what is there in the way of hard facts to support the firmly held conviction that Hebrew tradition from Joseph to Solomon must refer to this late period? At no time around 1700 B.C . is there any known vizier in Egypt remotely corresponding to Joseph. Between 1400 and 1200 B.C . there is no record of any event in Egypt which might have been the source of the Hebrew account of the plagues. ...
79. Return to the Tippe Top [Journals] [SIS Review]
... : Senmut and Phaeton' [6 ]. The two papers are complementary and have the merit of including illustrations, the Senmut ceiling decoration being shown on the cover of the journal. In addition to Senmut's ceiling, there is a decoration on the ceiling of the Ramesseum (c .300 years later than Senmut) which follows the same tradition. It is not a direct copy of Senmut's, however, as it seems certain that Senmut's tomb was blocked up by rubble even before completion and remained so until its discovery this century. There is also a decoration on the ceiling of the tomb of Seti I (dated between Senmut and Ramesses II) which follows a different tradition ...
80. The Israelites and the 18th Dynasty [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1988 No 2 (Jan 1989) Home | Issue Contents The Israelites and the 18th Dynasty by ANTHONY H. REES There are a number of traditions connecting Joseph to the rule of a king of Egypt called Magron, and to his father and grandfather, who are both called Pharaoh [1 ]. These enable us to construct the framework for a tentative chronology for the Israelite sojourn' in Egypt. A Jewish pseudepigraphic* work called the prayer of Asenath' [2 ] tells us that Pharaoh (I ), Magron's grandfather, died forty-eight years before Joseph: His crown he left to Joseph who ruled over Egypt for forty-eight years ...
