33. The Tomb Of King Ahiram. Ch. 3. (Ramses II and his Time) [Velikovsky]
... Genesis 9:18), spoke Semitic Hebrew. This conclusion, implied by the Hebrew words inserted in the Babylonian texts of the el-Amarna letters written from Palestine, has been regarded as indisputable since the discovery of the Ras Shamra texts, The conclusion that the population of pre-Israelite Canaan not only spoke Hebrew but must also have had speedy scribes writing in this language has been avoided, though it follows from Hori's text: Hori used the Hebrew words sofer yodea for a learned scribe, and mahir for a speedy scribe. The latter word appears throughout the papyrus, as it was the intention of its author to explain the duties of a mahir, who must calculate quickly and instantly ...
34. Flavius Josephus Against Apion Book 2 [Books]
... Flavius Josephus Against Apion BOOK II 1. IN the former book, most honored Epaphroditus, I have demonstrated our antiquity, and confirmed the truth of what I have said, from the writings of the Phoenicians, and Chaldeans, and Egyptians. I have, moreover, produced many of the Grecian writers as witnesses thereto. I have also made a refutation of Manetho and Cheremon, and of certain others of our enemies. I shall now (1 ) therefore begin a confutation of the remaining authors who have written any thing against us; although I confess I have had a doubt upon me about Apion (2 ) the grammarian, whether I ought to take the trouble ...
35. A Fire not Blown [Books]
... first work's electrical interpretation of ancient myths and cosmology to a particular area of the ancient Mediterranean world, then to quote further examples of religious practice and the relevant vocabulary from a wider area.There has inevitably been repetitions of examples and interpretations from my earlier work. In my first book I gave about twenty cases of reversals of direction of writing, suggesting that something more than coincidence was involved. The present work contains more than eighty examples for consideration, and there are more possibilities which may justify mention at a later stage. I am most grateful to a number of people for their help. I had useful discussions with the late Stephen Yates on Celtic and Gallic vocabulary, ...
36. Henry H. Bauer and Immanuel Velikovsky [Books]
... same time I received a letter from Henry Bauer (9 ) in which he apprised me of the fact that C. Leroy Ellenberger had sent him a copy of the announcement of my own, then privately-published book, Carl Sagan and Immanuel Velikovsky. He suggested that if I sent him a free copy of the book he would attempt to write a review of it for the Journal of Scientific Exploration or perhaps The Skeptical Inquirer, although he could make no promises about his review being published in either journal. In order to be sure that I was not submitting my book to someone who would treat it dishonestly, I finally got a copy of Bauer's book and read it with ...
37. The Advancement of Science [Books] [de Grazia books]
... precepts such as: There is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage, than the creation of a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institutions and merely lukewarm defenders in those who would gain by the new ones. So writes Machiavelli in The Prince, which was posthumously published in 1532. He was speaking about politics but the generalization might be enlarged. Probably all who have had anything to do with creating a new science, or trying to do so, would agree with him. Included, even, would be those who could recognize tangible victories in their ...
38. Chapter 15 Dark Ages Based on Dark Scholarship [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... reducing the question to smaller confines, every new discovery enlarged the confines and decreased the chances of finding a solution."3 Homer composed the Iliad and Odyssey supposedly in the earliest Helladic age of Greek history in superb language in written form — although it is argued these books were committed to memory for 500 years and only thereafter committed to writing. But this is incorrect since the Helladic Greeks of that time, known as the Mycenaeans, could and did write. Peter James et al. explain: "The major Mycenaean centres employed skilled bureaucracies to keep administrative records — such as inventories of available goods, notes of taxes and lists of offerings made to the gods. Their ...

... From: Aeon IV:4 (Apr 1996) Home | Issue Contents Vox Popvli OUR WEB SITE PAYS OFF Walt Cunningham, from Prescott, Arizona, writes: I have been on the Internet since December 1995, so I am new to all this. One of the first things I did was search Lycos for Velikovsky and catastrophism. Your page was one of the first I found- great page. I retired from the nuclear power industry in which I worked as a construction engineer with Bechtel, Ebasco, Brown & Root, etc. Before that, I was a mechanical designer for General Dynamics, Astronautics Division at Cape Canaveral, where I worked on the Mercury ...
40. Chapter 8 Mesopotamia and Ghost Empires [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... : the copyist had simply added together several different, concurrent king lists. "Exploring the mazes of chronology, scholars are sometimes able to find help in the date and eponym lists. ' From the time of Sargon I to the time of Hammurabi (almost 700 years) Babylonians were in the habit of giving names to the years and writing down 2 Ceram, The Secret of the Hittites, op.cit., p. 136 246 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 catalogues of these names. This sounds simple enough — but the ancients made things hard for themselves and for us. "True dates, which cite a particular year, ...
