Egyptian dating rituals
DOI: 10.15184/aqy.2018.48 Abstract The carved wooden object uncovered from the Shigir peat bog in the Sverdlovsk region towards the end of the nineteenth century remains one of the oldest, known examples of monumental anthropomorphic sculpture from anywhere in the world.
Recent application of new analytical techniques has led to the discovery of new imagery on its surface, and has pushed the date of the piece back to the earliest Holocene.
A team of researchers in Germany has found evidence suggesting that the famous wooden Shirgir Idol is actually 11,500 years old.
The team has documented their efforts and findings in a paper published on the Cambridge University Press site Antiquity.
It will be argued that Israel's worship of the Golden Calf reflects a telescoping, fusion, and re-interpretation or transformation of various concepts and motifs regarding bull calves found in the religious beliefs of Egypt, Canaan, and Mesopotamia.
The myths of each region are investigated in order to identify the "historical kernels," attested by archaeology, which came to be transformed into the Bible's "Golden Calf incident at Mount Sinai" as well as accounting for why the Israelite king, Jeroboam, set up of Golden Calves for his people to worship at Dan and Bethel.
I understand that two differing origins traditions were fused together in the Late Iron II period (ca.
1000-562 BCE) by the Israelite/Judaean descendants of the _intermarriages_ between native Late Bronze Age Canaanites and invading Aramean Israelites of Iron I ( ca. Judges 3:5-7), these Iron II descendants, desiring to preserve the origins traditions of "both" their forefathers, Canaanite and Aramean, fused the two traditions into one.
Early art in the Urals: new research on the wooden sculpture from Shigir, Antiquity (2018).It will also be argued that Yahweh was worshipped by the northern kingdom of Israel in the form of a Golden Calf, and that this is an Aramean concept from northern Syria and Mesopotamia.It will be argued that the notion that Israel worshipped a Golden Calf in the Sinai is from a Late Bronze Age Canaanite Origins tradition.The archaeological evidence "ought to be" of Egyptian pottery of these eras along with Amalekite as well as Midianite wares. A number of scholars possess a "mindset" that as Israel had recently fled from Egypt as slaves that she would avoid these Egyptian installations like the plague!The thought, consequently, never crossed their minds that these mining camps might be nucleus to the Exodus traditions.
