Pillars of the past is a 600 page, referenced, indexed book, (Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2 & 3 of The Velikovskian by Charles Ginenthal).

Using scientific and technological data, he outlines evidence that proves that ancient Near Eastern history is not as long as historians have claimed. The evidence includes:

  • Sothic dating
  • Radiocarbon dating
  • Pottery dating
  • Metallurgy as it is applies to pottery dating, as well as to carving and inscribed granite and diorite
  • Egyptian and Mesopotamian stratigraphy are also analyzed along with the evidence of:
    • erosion
    • agronomy
    • climatology
    • agriculture
    • glass technology
    • domestication of the horse and ass
    • linguistics
    • forensic anthropology
    • musical instrumentation of the hepatonic diatonic scale
  • And much more!

Published Mesopotanian stratigraphical research, based on geology and archaeology now indisputably prove 700 to 800 years were added to history by the archaeologists. Linguistics related to Hebrew, Greek and Hittite along with agronomy, climatology, irrigation, burial customs and artifacts, domestication of the horse and ass and other topics all converge to indicate that history is much shorter than what historians claim has been established .

For the first time in one work this evidence is presented to scientifically prove that ancient Near Eastern history must be shortened by over 1500 years. Those interested in the revision of history will have powerful tools to confront the historical establishment. The book costs $27.95 in the U.S.: ($32.95 in Canada, $37.95 in Europe and elsewhere, payable in U.S. dollars). Those who wish to order all of Vol. VI of THE VELIKOVSKIAN, send $35 dollars U.S. ($40 dollars Canada, $45 dollars Europe), payable is U.S. dollars, payable to Charles Ginenthal, 65-35 108th Street, Forest Hills, New York 11375.

It is urgent that you respond to this request as soon as possible. We will only publish a certain number of copies and your order and support are crucial if this work is to continue. To those for whom history is of vital importance, this book is a powerful vehicle for those in the revisionist camp.

Back cover

Pillars of the Past explores, through studies based primarily on scientific and technological evidence, the chronology of the ancient Near East. This evidence indicates that the historians and archaeologists have invented over 1500 years of history that simply never existed. The evidence includes astronomical Sothic dating, radiocarbon dating, pottery dating, tin bronze production, iron metallurgy as it relates to cutting diorite and other hard rock. In addition, erosion of Egyptian monuments along with agronomy and soil salinization, climatology, agriculture, as well as archaeological and geological stratigraphy all support the conclusion that at least 1500 years of ancient history are a mirage. Glass development, domestication of the horse and ass, Hebrew, Greek, and Hittite linguistics, forensic studies of the teeth of ancient peoples prove that this millennium and a half or more are historical fiction. There is of course much, much more. With hundreds of footnotes from many diverse fields of study, Ginenthal ruthlessly tears away the façade of the established long chronology. For new and old readers of ancient history, in clear, understandable language, the history of the ancient Near East is exposed, showing that at least half of the cloth of that age is an invention; that the emperor, in reality, has no clothes.
