81. Reopening the Sumerian Question [Aeon Journal $]
... Aeon I:2 (Feb 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Reopening the Sumerian Question Jan Sammer Until about a hundred years ago, no one suspected that at the dawn of history an advanced and sophisticated culture had laid the foundations of the arts and sciences. Today it is claimed that "history begins in Sumer," that the Sumerians single-handedly invented writing ... . But a few decades later these notions were overturned with the realization that in Egypt and Sumer the fundamentals of civilized life had been discovered some 1500 years earlier. The revised historical scheme formulated by Gunnar Heinsohn on the following pages is the logical consequence of a dramatic finding: that the period of Abraham is the early part of the first millennium BCE, ... in Sumer," that the Sumerians single-handedly invented writing, mathematics, and practically everything that we recognize as belonging to civilized life. For reasons that cannot be clearly discerned, historians claim that this civilization decayed by the end of the third millennium BCE, leaving but a faint echo of itself in later cultures. A thousand years and more would have to ...
82. A REVISED CHRONOLOGY FOR THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST [SIS C&C Review $]
... certain notoriety among professional astronomers and astrophysicists by the radical nature of the hypotheses advanced in 'Worlds In Collision', in which the most fundamental assumptions about the solar system and its history had been questioned. 'Ages in Chaos' deliberately left aside the issues raised in the preceding volume and was intended to be a separate challenge to archaeologists and ancient historians. The ... The assumption of Egyptologists that Nectanebo I and the other kings of the XXIXth and XXXth Dynasties had already been positively identified on the Egyptian monuments is examined and found wanting. The historical model for the XXth Dynasty is rounded off by comparing trends in the language, art and religion of the XXth Dynasty and Egypt of the 5th/4th centuries. For example ... the first centuries of the second millenium BC) down to the time of Hezekiah and the Ethiopian Dynasty of Egypt (end of the eighth century BC), Egyptian and Hebrew histories are devoid of reliable synchronism. Of all the hypothetical synchronisms put forward only the identification of Sheshonk I, founder of the Libyan (Twenty Second) Dynasty of Egypt, with ...

With each passing decade this consensus has become less tentative, with the result that it is now a virtual historical dogma-- despite the fact that little or no new information has been unearthed to support it. Since the rigidity of the view that Egyptian and Mesopotamian history began in the ... in spatially disparate areas. The further apart these areas are, the more impressive are the synchronisms between them. In the Old World-- the only hemisphere that created full-fledged histories of its own-- synchronisms involving all three continents can be established for the sixth century B.C.-- but no earlier. The reason for this is that the first ...
84. Reviews [SIS C&C Workshop $]
... his 'Jerusalem Chronology of the Israelite Monarchies', Brad Aaronson touches on a subject central to the whole revisionist debate- namely the relationship between Hebrew and Assyrian chronology. When the history of the neo-Assyrian empire was being reconstructed, towards the end of the last century, it was discovered that there was a disagreement of roughly thirty years between the chronology deduced from ... blurb on the back cover: "In contrast to many advocates of catastrophism, Patten proposes a model. That model accords with Newtonian mechanics, geomagnetic principles, gyroscopic theory and historical accounts." If that's true then I'm a dinosaur, surviving from the catastrophe of 65 million years ago. Eric Crew, 1989 Drew Symposium, 1991 Advance notice is given ... of ancient history. Starting from the above premise, Aaronson set out to highlight some of the problems inherent in the present scheme, and to suggest solutions. Assyrian and Hebrew histories synchronise with each other in a number of places. The earliest known contact comes in the time of Shalmaneser III, who lists Ahab of Israel as one of his adversaries at ...

... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History X:2 (July 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents "My Kingdom for a Horse..." Tamara Futterman We have read about horses twice in history, the more famous account being the Spanish Conquest, when soldiers riding majestic beasts mesmerized the natives of both Peru and Mexico. Almost the same thing happened ... Some scholars take this to mean he fought on the Roman side against his countrymen. When the war ended Joseph was given many treasures by the Roman conquerors, including the ancient historical archives of Jerusalem and Egypt. He was asked to record the history of his people-- accounts which are, no doubt, still in the Vatican today. In his ... these Semites, who were called Hyksos. We are informed they ruled for 511 years-- the most peaceful and prosperous time the Ancient Egyptians had ever seen.

86. Sequence and events [SIS Internet Digest $]
... then most individuals such as Plato aren't historical. If you use the number of documents, the Bible wins hands down. Few of any ancient documents exist so that almost all history fails this standard. As Chris Marx is found of pointing out almost all copies of ancient documents are modern historical discoveries of manuscripts that aren't older than 15th century if that. ... that time outside Egypt. In Joseph's Egypt placing large populations in the cities of Egypt was a major undertaking. Clark: What evidence do you have that Joseph was a genuine historical figure? James: Nobody denies the historicallity of Egyptian Pharaohs no matter how slim the evidence for their rule might be. If the Bible is correct, then Joseph became Pharaoh ... lords as well: to me this is counter-intuitive. If Joseph was pharaoh, why wouldn't the author of Genesis (Moses?) have made it a big deal. Tribal histories are not known to be unduly modest.... ...

... From: Aeon V:4 (July 1999) Home¦ Issue Contents Heinsohn's Ancient "History" Ev Cochrane It is with a profound sense of ambivalence that I write this article, taking a critical stance towards the historical reconstruction of Gunnar Heinsohn. Not only do I regard Gunnar as a personal friend; he has long been a supporter of AEON ... first as a contributor of numerous articles and also through featured appearances at various symposia. Yet the suspicion has been building for some time now that all is not well with Dr. Heinsohn's handling of the ancient sources. Since AEON has taken an active role in publicizing Heinsohn's researches, it follows that we have a certain responsibility to keep our readers informed of ... ."

After postgraduate study at London University in the history of 20th-century Palestine he has worked as a journalist in Britain and Israel. He has been a Contributing Editor ... Kronos, and Editorial Associate of the S.I.S. Review to which he has contributed several historical studies. Martin Sieff's highly original- and often provocative- analysis of Velikovsky's writings demonstrates the error of those critics who seek to label Velikovsky as a biblical fundamentalist. A close examination of the literary and psychological clues in his writings shows that the personal motivations which may ... was then that I realized that the Exodus had occurred in the midst of a natural upheaval and that this catastrophe might prove to be the connecting link between the Israelite and Egyptian histories, if ancient Egyptian texts were found to contain references to a similar event. I found such references and before long worked out a plan of reconstruction of ancient history from the ...
90. June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History [The Velikovskian $]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 3 (1994) Home¦ Issue Contents June 15, 762 BCE: A Mathematical Analysis of Ancient History Robert T. Russell The core proposition to be discussed in this chronological treatise is that Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky's date of February 26, 747 BCE, for the cataclysm of the ancient 8th century, is not ... in a while. It is the total structure of the combined synchronicities that is of primary importance here. The revised history of this period cannot be perfected without first having a historical skeleton to hold it together. The date presented by Dr. Velikovsky (1) is based upon a formidable compilation of calendrical and cultural data, not the least of which ... , but, in combination, these conclusions mathematically demonstrate beyond a doubt that Dr. Velikovsky's basic principles are correct. To do this, though, requires that all of the histories of the area be analyzed and synchronized simultaneously.
