61. Acknowledgments (Earth In Upheaval) [Velikovsky] [Velikovsky Earth in Upheaval]
... at his death (our last meeting was nine days before his passing) there remained clearly defined points of disagreement, his stand then demonstrated the evolution of his opinion in the space of eighteen months. Professor Waldo S. Glock, Chairman of the Department of Geology at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minnesota, a recognized authority in dendrochronology (dating of tree rings), with the help of his graduate students searched the literature pertaining to the tree rings of early ages, and also gave me answers to questions in his field. Dr. H. Manley of the Imperial College, London, Professor P. L. Mercanton of the University of Lausanne, and Professor ...
62. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part II: The Geological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... along boundaries of oceans, lakes and rivers, on organic material adjacent to volcanic tephra (dust) or lava, and on organic material associated with objects undergoing thermoremanent magnetism measurements. As in the earlier articles, all of my radiocarbon data is expressed in calendar year dates, either obtained directly from my sources or derived from radiocarbon dates using dendrochronologic conversion tables based on the accepted conventions of a 5568 year carbon-14 isotope half-life, and AD 1950 as the zero time reference [1 ]. Chronological data is presented in figures designated in either radiocarbon or calendar years, just as in the climatology article. The calendar year 2300 BC point appears in each figure. Figure 1. Global ...

64. Predicting the Past [Journals] [Aeon]
... further discussion. Today, the tide has turned somewhat. Now school children are taught that the extinction of the dinosaurs was due to the crashing to Earth of a comet or an asteroid sixty million years ago. Astronomers have written books about how asteroid and comet impacts destroyed past civilizations and threaten our present one. Experts in the field of dendrochronology have concluded that tree-ring data show steep environmental downturns within historical times, and that these events seem to be tied to celestial phenomena. The present work is a summation of Roger Wescott's thoughts regarding mythology, human prehistory, and catastrophism. Not only are the ideas presented in this work incendiary; they are also educative. But, beyond ...
65. The Great 250,000 Year Ice Core [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... time (Beal after Burroughs) Before getting too agitated, it pays to look carefully at what exactly the scientists have found and consider the reliability of their evidence. Much play is made about the (presumed) annual layers visible in the ice and their similarity to tree rings. In view of what we now know about the various tree-ring dendrochronologies, a degree of scepticism is in order. It may be surprising to learn that only a small portion of the GRIP core was actually dated by counting layers: according to the report in Science [3 ] It is possible to count annual layers back at least 13,000 years'. (Note the words it is possible ...
66. A LEAD TO FOLLOW [Journals] [Pensee]
... or the intrusion of carbon from extra-terrestrial sources? Is it possible that, as the work of Anderson and Spangler suggests, the radioactive decay constant was at times changed by massive electrical discharges? Have C-14 dates unfavourable to the conventional chronology been (deliberately or otherwise) suppressed? Can the tree-ring sequences be matched with the accuracy claimed by the dendrochronologists? All these questions are discussed, and one cannot escape the feeling that historians, both orthodox and unorthodox, are prepared to grasp at scientific techniques when the results support their preconceptions, and to ignore or discredit them when they do not. Approaching the revised chronology from a more conventionally archaeological standpoint, we find strong support for the ...

69. L'Énigme de la Structure Elliptique [Journals] [SIS Review]
... , I did cover myself in 1998 p. 29 - my last sentence said the 1628 BC event in the tree rings may turn out to be Thera after all'. Whether 1645 or 1628, there is still a mismatch with the archaeo/historical dating (early 18th Dynasty) and until someone actually does a proper publication of a dendrochronology or an ice core, revisionists are free to ignore scientific' dates. R. M. Porter The Parthenon F.C . Penrose, astronomer, archaeologist and a friend of Norman Lockyer, calculated that the Greek temple, the Parthenon, was astronomically orientated towards the Pleiades. He proposed that it was constructed in about 1150BC. ...
70. Exodus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... claimed the Pyramid Texts must have been written after the Exodus - either the Exodus preceded the Old Kingdom or the Texts were written after the end of the Middle Kingdom. The Exodus story has as its background a human migration from one land to another, involving what became known as Palestine. At the end of the 4th millennium BC, dendrochronology indicates another major dust veil event coinciding with the end of the Early and Middle Neolithic Period in Britain and Ireland . This event coincides with an episode towards the end of the Late Chalcolithic Period in Syria-Palestine when every site appears to have been destroyed in a dreadful conflagration. Intriguingly, the physical human remains of the Late ...
