Ancient Israel Debunked? he fundamentalistically computed biblical dates for the major events in the history of ancient Israel cannot be convincingly synchronized with the stratigraphical sequence of the land's archaeological sites. This want of harmony between biblical chronology and archaeological stratigraphy is mainly due to the excavators ... failed to make sense of the biblical events when they took their pious dates and tried to accommodate them in their stratigraphies. Hence, it became ever more fashionable to discard the historical information contained in the biblical legends.

... to find fault with ancient chronology as long as you accept the myth of "dark ages" and "huge gaps" in stratigraphical continuity. Heinsohn points out that the physical history of the ancient world shows the Greek historians were essentially right: archaeology sites show that there are four main settlement periods between Alexander and the Stone Age. Calling these periods by ... different sites resulted in an inflated chronology that-- mirabile dictu-- just happens to correspond with Biblical dating. This inflated chronology began when Bible dates were applied to Greek historical periods, resulting in dark ages and phantom empires (i.e. the Chaldeans were dated to the -3rd millennium and called "Chaldeans"). George Bass is a brilliant scholar ... as you accept the myth of "dark ages" and "huge gaps" in stratigraphical continuity.

His primary contention, repeatedly emphasized, was that the conventional chronology has the Israelite and Egyptian histories existing side by side for many centuries during which there are virtually no well-attested interconnections between the two.

... a project on Freud's heroes: Moses, Oedipus, and Akhnaton. (1) As a direct result of this research Velikovsky was led to revolutionary new insights concerning the recent history of our solar system, as well as a reconstruction and synchronisation of the ancient histories of the Near East. What is less well known is that Velikovsky's inspiration for this study ... from his indignation over Freud's treatment of Moses in Moses and Monotheism. Velikovsky published Oedipus and Akhnaton in 1960, his fourth book, and the second work in a series of historical reconstructions. Despite the pivotal role which Oedipus and Akhnaton plays in Velikovsky's overall reconstruction, not to mention its historical significance with regard to the author's intellectual development, it is surprising ... As a direct result of this research Velikovsky was led to revolutionary new insights concerning the recent history of our solar system, as well as a reconstruction and synchronisation of the ancient histories of the Near East.

Certainly not by entrusting discussions on celestial mechanics to historians, or the analysis of myth to physicists.

Needless to say, such a chronology is rather far from historical reality. Winlock characterised the situation rather bitingly: "The ancient Egyptians, from the Old Kingdom to the Roman period, have not left a single trace of such a fixed ... revised chronology" may be welcome (8). To the great disappointment of the Egyptologists, history books of the kind preserved in the Old Testament or those composed by Greek historians have never been found among the countless documents discovered in Egypt.

This monarchical rule by astronomy is not restricted to the so-called 'natural sciences', but extends also to such departments of knowledge as folk lore, linguistics, art history, Egyptology, psychoanalysis, and even philosophy.

Velikovsky and most of the astronomers: namely, whether catastrophic events caused such planets as Earth, Venus, and Mars to be thrown onto their present orbits as recently as within historical times. If you know that there were no such events, then retro calculation may be one way to determine the approximate positions of the planets at some point in time. ... one group against another. Often these groups are nationalistic (2) (such as when the Germans claim that Copernicus was German rather than Polish; or when the English write histories of science crediting Harvey with the discovery of the circulation of the blood and ignoring the prior work of da Vinci, Columbo, and Cesalpino-- or stressing the role of ...

... : "To abandon 1786 bc as the year when Dynasty XII ended would be to cast adrift from our only firm anchor, a course that would have serious consequences for the history, not of Egypt alone, but of the entire Middle East."

At any rate, the Sothic period has become the meter-stick par excellence for our contemporary historians to measure Egyptian regnal history into the dim and distant past, and the more times it was applied the more ancient the civilizations became, until ultimately we encounter an eldritch prehistory ...

... . According to the story of Manetho, he was placed with a "friend" of the pharaoh at the age of five, and no mention is made of his subsequent history. One wonders if the pharaoh who bore the name of Ptah might not have entrusted his son to the priests of Ptah in such a time of peril. In such a ... simply because it is an anti-Semitic polemic, historians were left trying to squeeze Amenmesse's 4 years and Siptah's 6 years in between Seti II and Setnakht.

The monumental and inscriptional material from Dynasty XVIII is rich but far from comprehensive.

There is, nevertheless, a consensus among the majority of ancient historians that the absolute and relative dates of the histories of Egypt, Babylonia, Assyria, Greece and their neighbours can be fixed within fairly small margins of error from the beginning of the dynastic periods in Egypt and Mesopotamia (about ...
