1. The present state of Radiocarbon Dating [Articles]
... Annual General Meeting of the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies The present state of Radiocarbon Dating Nick Thorpe held at the Library Association on 14th September 1986 Morning session Nick Thorpe's comments during his slide show on some of the sites that will be visited during the Megalithic Tour, and his talk on Radiocarbon Dating Peter James, introducing Nick Thorpe: He is in the Department of Anthropology at University College, although he is basically an archaeologist. He is working largely on the Late Bronze Age prehistoric cultures of Great Britain such as the Wessex Culture, and through that has become interested in questions of radiocarbon dating. He has done a lot of work on re-dating the Wessex Culture by the rather ...
2. Chapter 4 Scientific ? Radiocarbon Dating [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS 118 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 CHAPTER 4 SCIENTIFIC ? RADIOCARBON DATING "I mistrust laboratory methods because what happens in a laboratory is contrived and dictated. The evidence is manufactured; the cases are what reporters call frame-ups. If the evidence is unexpected or unaccountable it is re-manufactured until it proves what the laboratory controller wants it to prove." George Bernard Shaw quoted in Robert Youngson, Scientific Blunders (NY 1998) p. 173 ". . . material is often submitted for [radiocarbon] dating in the spirit of adding scientific precision to the archaeologists' pre-existing beliefs." R. Hedges, quoted in David M. Rohl ...
3. Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 3 No 2&3 (1997) Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating The Extinction Charles Ginenthal Radiocarbon dating is the final support, and only support for the contention of the age of the extinction. As Haynes says, "According to radiocarbon dates, a proboscidean crisis occurred 10,000 to 12,000 years ago, the interval when mammoths and mastodonts disappeared from the world."1 But he also admits that "some would say they disappeared later."2 This later extinction possibility Haynes and the other uniformitarians are clearly unwilling to examine presently or admit openly. To drop this 10,000 year extinction date would destroy both the ...
4. Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol VI No 1-3 (1982) "The 1978 Glasgow Conference Proceedings" Home | Issue Contents Radiocarbon Dating and Egyptian Chronology Dr Euan Mackie I don't regard myself as an expert in ancient Egypt or the ancient Near East - or even, really, in radiocarbon dating, but as a practising archaeologist I have to use radiocarbon dates in this remote northern region far from the centres of early civilisation in the Mediterranean and the Near East, and therefore, like everyone who works up here, beyond the range of direct links with Egypt and Greece, I have to be familiar with C14, its limitations and its benefits [1 ]. It occurred to ...
5. Scientific Dating Methods In Ruins [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... From: The Velikovskian Vol 2 No 1 (1994) Home | Issue Contents Scientific Dating Methods In Ruins Charles Ginenthal In 1669, the distinguished English physicist, Robert Hooke, made a wonderful discovery. He obtained the long-sought proof of Copernicus' heliocentric theory of the solar system by demonstrating stellar parallax- a perceived difference in [the] position of a star due to the Earth's motion around the Sun. One of the first to use a telescope for this purpose, Hooke observed the star Gamma Draconis and soon reported to the Royal Society that he had found what he was looking for: The star had a parallax of almost  seconds of arc. Here, ...

Libby published an account of the development of a new technique for dating the time since the death of previously living matter. In 1960 he, very deservingly, received the Nobel Prize for his pioneering efforts in this field. Libby reprinted a review article about this method in Pensee. 1 Some of his major points will be given in the next ...
7. Limitations of Astronomical Dating Methods* [Journals] [Kronos]
... From: Kronos Vol. I No. 2 (Summer 1975) Home | Issue Contents Limitations of Astronomical Dating Methods*Donovan A. Courville [* This article has been reprinted with the gracious permission of Dr. Donovan A. Courville from his two-volume work The Exodus Problem and its Ramifications (Crest Challenge Books, Loma Linda, Calif., 19711 copies of which may be purchased by writing to Dr. Courville.] The problems involved in setting up a credible chronology of the ancient world are immense. This fact is indicated by the failure of any of the twenty or more outstanding historians of the last half-century to propose a chronology which would be generally acceptable to ...
8. Reassessing the Date of the Arabah Copper Mines [Articles]
... Reassessing the Date of the Arabah Copper Mines Dr. John Bimson Peter James introduces Dr. John Bimson, the leading pioneer in applying Velikovsky's work to the field of Biblical Archaeology: "John studied at the Biblical Studies Department at Sheffield University where he graduated with a Ph.D . His thesis was on the subject of the date of the Exodus and Conquest. He was the first person to examine in detail Velikovsky's suggestion that the Conquest took place at the end of the Middle Bronze Age in Palestine. Since then, John has worked on both the patriarchal period and the period following the Conquest, and today he is giving us a talk on the finds in the ...
9. Chapter 5 Pottery Dating, Faience, and Tin [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS 156 VELIKOVSKIAN Vol. VI, Nos. 1, 2, 3 CHAPTER 5 POTTERY DATING, FAIENCE, AND TIN Pottery sherds and sometimes entire vases are found buried at sites all over the Near East. Because broken pottery bits were no longer useful, they were cast aside and generally left where they were last used, or nearby. Since pottery by and large is subject to accidental breakage, it doesn't often last very long and thus may be used to date various sites by its style — its form or shape, the types of glazes that were used, the quality of the workmanship, the thickness of its clay walls, the design on it, and ...
10. Chapter 3 Astronomical Sothic Dating [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... CONTENTS Charles Ginenthal, Pillars of the Past 81 CHAPTER 3 ASTRONOMICAL SOTHIC DATING "You can't ask us to take sides against arithmetic. You can't ask us to take sides against the obvious facts. . ." Sir Winston Churchill in The Wit and Wisdom of Winston Churchill by J. Harmos (NY 1995), p. 35 "If Manethon's list proves to be unreliable, and if conventional Sothic dating turns out to be a chimera, Egyptian chronology will need to be revised and reconstructed upon more secure foundations. And once that is done, the chronologies of all those neighboring peoples will also have to be revised and reconstructed. Move the Egyptians, and you must ...
