This author does not see any reason to separate Akhenaten from Psalm 104, and it was not by intention that his new date for Akhenaten also solved the chronological problem of Psalm 104. For the same reason the surprise of scholars to see Jeremiah, who became prophet in 627/626 BC, applying Amarna terminology of the 14th century ... scarabs, scimitars, horse-drawn chariots, weighty daggers, and glacis fortifications etc- but they never qualified for Akkadian. The perception of them as speakers of a Mesopotamian language appeared chronologically too horrifying to come to the minds of Egyptologists and Assyriologists alike. Why is the question of Thutmose III's teacher of Akkadian a problem at all? Because the Egyptians, like ...

... life of Moses which can affect biblical studies profoundly, as well as the histories of Israel, Egypt, Greece and Rome-- as well as East Mediterranean archaeology and ancient chronologies.

According to Artapanus he plotted Moses' death; this was just before the time of Moses exile. [20 A Chronology for Moses The Relationship to the Old Testament. It seems appropriate at this point to set some sort of chronology for the life of Moses. I assume from I Kings 6 ... that many of the early seventeenth-dynasty rulers were one and the same as twelfth-dynasty rulers. This paper is by no means intended to be a full report answering all the problems of chronological placement of Moses and the Children of Israel during their stay in Egypt. Nor are details rigidly fixed. It merely introduces new and basic concepts in order that a new chronological ...

... H.Stiebing Jr., who participated in the debate on Velikovsky's chronology in PENSEE in the 1970's, renews his attack on all major revisions of ancient chronology. He discusses the revised chronologies of Velikovsky, Courville, Bimson and Anati (for the latter see BAR Xl:4, pp.42ff and WORKSHOP 5:4, p.29). Of the revisions like Anati's ...

The coelacanth was thought to have become extinct 60 million years ago, and there the matter would have rested but for the discovery of living specimens of the creature, indistinguishable from ... measurements: the Irish oak has an estimated error in date conversion of less than 20 years. Greater accuracy should therefore be possible, and a better tie-in between calibrated radiocarbon and chronological dates might be expected. Shaw states with justified conviction that "It can no longer be seriously argued that dendrochronological calibrations are inapplicable to the Near East." If an accurate ...

... early history". This approach, although aimed at denying Velikovsky any real significance in the field of scholarship, effectively acknowledges his claim of recent catastrophes, and implies that accepted chronologies deserve re-examination.

From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 1987 No 2 (Jan 1988) Home¦ Issue Contents Letters The Velikovskian Challenge Today Dear Sir, Velikovsky's prime thesis was that the world as we see it- and this embraces the natural world as it is; the records left by nature and man in fossils, stone, writing, and folk memory; ... real significance in the field of scholarship, effectively acknowledges his claim of recent catastrophes, and implies that accepted chronologies deserve re-examination.

That these considerations affect many chronologies is obvious. Only those which look at the basic facts and start with few historical assumptions, such as the strata-based work of Heinsohn, are likely to get near the truth ...

... the returnees from an archaeological point of view. That has since changed and quite dramatically. Peter James demonstrates that at least two empty centuries can be directly attributed to artificially extended chronologies of the ancient Near East based on Egypt. He shows that these ghost centuries are in evidence in most ancient Near Eastern histories and in areas well beyond Egypt, Mesopotamia and ... the Greek Dark Ages; "Redating the Hittite Empire;" "Biblical Archaeology Without Egypt;" "Empty Years in Nubian History" as well as two chapters on Mesopotamian chronology.

... 702-687 B.C. while conventional dating places Haremhab in the latter part of the fourteenth century B.C. Gammon's proposal was offered as part of "some tentative beginnings of an alternative 'Glasgow chronology' ", to use the words of Peter James,(1) begun at the Glasgow Conference on Ages in Chaos held in the spring of 1978. However, Gammon ... to present a single shred of synchronistic evidence in support of a ninth century placement of Haremhab; and his essay is nothing more than a summary collection of conventional chronologists' attempts to place Haremhab at the close of the Eighteenth Dynasty.

They record wars, diplomatic missions, and above all, the deaths and funerals of emperors and the rulers of all the major states of China, tying their chronologies together indissolubly.

... out of style with the patriarchal age," as he claimed, but a style commonly used in Babylonia at the time. And not just in Babylonia! Even in conventional chronologies, the Assyrian Empire of the 8th and 7th centuries, like Babylonia after it, used cuneiform.
