... events. All this can be neatly dated using uniformitarian assumptions. The deep currents which are known to flow from the cold polar regions to the equator have little effect upon this scenario, but now scientists have discovered a new and massive disturbing effect. Where these currents are deflected westwards by the Coriolis force (a factor due to Earth's spin), frequent and massive 'storms' in the form of deep-sea eddies scour the floors on the western sides of the ocean basins. Huge amounts of sediment are removed and redeposited in a complex stratigraphy which is much different from its original, sedimentary form. The researchers admit that "... truly vast areas of ocean bottom are modified by material entrained by deep currents". So how much reliance can we now place on the evidence on the evidence of deep sea cores? Surely their stratigraphy is open to question, arguments based on depth of sediment are groundless, and interpretations of world temperatures etc are baseless.

162. The Two Sargons and Their Successors (Part II) [Aeon Journal $]
... 26) But it would be highly selective of me to stop there without taking cognizance of what else Lloyd has to say about the subject. So let me clarify one thing: Akkadian remains are scarce-- not nonexistent-- but only when compared to the remains of other Mesopotamian periods. There are various reasons for this scarcity which, incidentally, is not unique to the Akkadian period. (Until the recent discoveries at Tell el Dab'a, the Hyksos period in Egypt, in which even Heinsohn believes, was bereft of stratigraphical evidence. No Hyksosian monuments were known). Not least of the considerations concerning Mesopotamian archaeology are the vicissitudes of history itself, with so much wholesale destruction and energetic rebuilding by various rulers-- something that Heinsohn belittles. One must remember that the conquerors of antiquity often razed the cities they vanquished right to the ground and, in some cases, as with Sennacherib at Babylon, had the rubble carted away. One should also consider the manner in which detritus accumulated on the original uneven ground, as also how much of ...
163. The Hyksos Were Not Assyrians [Aeon Journal $]
... Chetwynd suggests Khian for David-- the former with inscriptions found in Crete, the latter, with his Certhites and Pelethites, his Cretan and Philistine guard. Salitis is Saul, and Apop, or "evening star" who builds a splendid temple in Zoan, is Solomon, or Shlomo, the setting sun, who builds the Temple in Jerusalem. One could go on. My point here is to note that, by contrast, Heinsohn finds no cross-checks, but innumerable contradictions, between Israelites and Assyrians. 18) The stratigraphy of Ai Heinsohn includes validates my stratigraphy, and that of other "Early Bronze Exodus" analysts, admirably, without having to fall back on Heinsohn's "ghost strata"-- a theory I have attacked before. Heinsohn admits advanced settlement to the end of the Early Bronze at et-Tell (Ai), and notes it starts again in Iron I. This perfectly fits the Assyrians settling the Samaritans in the northern kingdom after the conquest. Heinsohn himself cites Isaiah 10:28-- clear evidence that the Assyrian conquerors swept ...
164. The Nature of the Historical Record [SIS C&C Review $]
... site, but also, mainly on the basis of changes in pottery styles, to show that levels of occupation at different sites were roughly contemporary. For example it is generally accepted that the casemate walls and chambered gates of the Iron Age cities of Gezer, Hazor and Megiddo were built at about the same time. Similarly, the introduction into Palestine of the so-called "bichrome" ware is associated with the beginning of the Late Bronze Age in Palestine. Over a long period, the excavation of numerous sites, the use of stratigraphical methods and the comparative analysis of the finds made have enabled archaeologists to construct the framework of Early, Middle and Late Bronze, and Iron Ages, with their numerous sub-divisions, on which the comparative chronology of the Near East and Aegean in the last 3000 years BC is largely based. It is highly significant that, whereas the historical reconstruction proposed by IMMANUEL VELIKOVSKY is not without difficulties with regard to much of the documentary evidence which has survived to form the basis of the accepted chronological framework, the stratigraphical record lends considerable support ...
165. The Fracture Zones In Deep Polar Ice Cores [Aeon Journal $]
... (1200 or 1400 meters), and well above the Wisconsin/Holocene boundary (1787 meters). Thus the complete disappearance of the bubbles is not correlated with the Dye 3 fracture zone at all. This non-correlation is also observed at Byrd Station; see Herron, Langway, and Brugger, op. cit., page 29: "In the Byrd Station ice core the bubbles disappear very near the climatic boundary, at the same depth that the ice undergoes a significant textural change. In the Camp Century ice core the stratigraphic log indicates that air bubbles disappear between 1100 and 1165 meters, which is also near the climatic transition..." As we have seen, this does correspond to what we took to be the bottom of the Camp Century fracture zone at about 1150 meters. Both in the Dye 3 core and in the Byrd Station core, however, the bubbles occur both above and below, as well as in, the fracture zone. Indeed, it may be that the damaged state of the Camp Century core conceals the actual ...

... (plus analytical commentary); (ii) a catalogue of Egyptian and Assyrian chronological anomalies; and (iii) an analysis of Sothic dating and its effect on the history of Egypt. The results of these projects will be made available in the form of ISIS Occasional Publications during 1987, 1988 and 1989. A major survey of archaeological anomalies from Europe and the Near East will also be published as part of the first ISIS Bulletin before the end of 1986. Preparations are well advanced for a two-day international conference on Archaeology, Stratigraphy and Chronology, to be held in September 1987. Many top scholars in the field are being invited to give talks on the relationship between archaeology and chronology in the light of the problems highlighted by the Institute's research work. It is expected that there will be at least ten speakers, including well known field directors from important sites in Furope, Egypt and the Levant. Notice of the final dates for this conference, including the list of speakers and lecture titles, will be given nearer to the date, but in sufficient ...

... HENRY ZEMEL: Preliminary Evaluation of Ice-Core Dating Problems. The Antarctic has no snowfall, therefore there are no layers. Greenland is the main source. There are 4 Ice-Core holes for which data is available: Dye, Cano, Century and Millicent. The snow is 2-3 kilometres deep. 5 metres of new snow is equivalent to half a metre of ice. The core is 10 centimetres across. A diagram showed how the ice would be forced down away from the centre. Care was taken to take into account: radioactivity, stratigraphy, relative deviation and concentration of the ice. The relative amounts of oxygen isotopes in the ocean water, how much is lost through evaporation, for which there is a standard ratio. The varying seasonal snowfalls. How the ice forms, becomes porous, fern-water vapour migrates to the side, lower ice has less vapour. There is a formula for a date taking in the distance from the ground, height of snow, length of sample etc. MONDAY MORNING: IAN JOHNSON: Overview of theories of origin of oil. ...

... follows should be regarded as simultaneously fulfilling two functions. On the one hand, it represents the completion of the task Immanuel Velikovsky set for himself in the Ages in Chaos series, an endeavour which spectacularly initiated the reconstruction of ancient history, but which left the task half-completed and the reader, as it were, dangling in mid-air. On the other hand, the work is intended to demonstrate how Gunnar Heinsohn's radically shortened chronology can be applied to the details of ancient Near Eastern history.

... Siberian mammoth carcasses, the masses of fresh moa bones in Australia, and host of other geological and biological puzzles. Most of Howorth's attention, however, is focussed on the mammoths and their recent demise. This book is one of the classics of catastrophe literature. Evolutionary Geology and the New Catastrophism by G.M. Price. 1926, 352 pp., $18.95p. Price was an early catastrophist at a time when uniformitarianism ruled with an iron fist. He systematically and rationally presented some of geology's major anomalies-- particularly in stratigraphy. Chapter titles include: The Modern Onion-Coat Theory; "Deceptive Conformity"; Upside Down; Extinct Species; Skipping; Graveyards; Degeneration; Fossil Men. Price was a creationist, but his book is devoid of theology. The Aerial World by G. Hartwig 1886, 560 pp., $26.95p. 37 chapters touch on just about every facet of weather and geophysics known: The echo; Waterspouts; The Rainbow; The thunderstorm; St. Elmo's fire; and even flying machines, such as they were in ...
