... Palestine in any way related to chronological problems is being erroneously interpreted, because of misinterpretation of a few critical observations. The descriptive phases of the reports, of course, remain intact, as do also certain qualitative data confirming the existence of certain peoples and places mentioned in Scripture and in other extra-Biblical sources. So also the identifications of archaeological destructions and constructions for the Hellenistic era and later may be regarded as properly correlated with the written sources. It is here contended that for the era earlier than the Hellenistic period there has been an increased degree of error in the proposed chronological assignments so that, by the time of the end of the Israelite monarchy, there is little indeed ...
2. Bronze Age Multi-Site Destructions (A Preliminary Review) [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Chronology & Catastrophism Review (1994) "Proceedings of the 1993 Cambridge Conference" Home | Issue Contents Bronze Age Multi-Site Destructions (A Preliminary Review)Robert M. Porter Introduction I shall consider the events at or near the ends of the Early Bronze, Middle Bronze and Late Bronze Ages, attempting to update Claude Schaeffer's major work [1 ]. The full title, in English, of Professor Schaeffer's book is Stratigraphy Compared and Chronology of West Asia (3rd & 2nd Millennia BC) '. It is still often quoted for its details although its main thesis was not well received by most scholars, Velikovsky being an exception. Schaeffer proposed several waves of ...
3. An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC. Part I: The Archaeological Evidence [Journals] [SIS Review]
... M. M. Mandelkehr 1983 M. M. Mandelkehr holds a B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (University of Kansas) and an M.Sc. in Systems Engineering and Operations Research (University of Pennsylvania). He currently works in advanced radar system design. The work of Claude Schaeffer showing widespread destruction at archeological sites in the Near and Middle East due to catastrophic earthquakes around 2300 BC (conventional chronology) can be extended to a global level. Site destructions, major cultural discontinuities and movements of peoples can be shown to have occurred on an earthwide scale at this time, linked with an unusual disturbance of the Earth's crust. Introduction ...

... synchronous and that the hypothesis demands a common ultimate cause." [1 ] In July 1993, the Society for Interdisciplinary Studies organised the Cambridge Conference with the explicit aim of documenting evidence that the Earth has suffered catastrophes of cosmic origin in historical times'. The SIS conference followed Immanuel Velikovsky's original idea that cosmic catastrophes had caused both the destruction of the Middle and Late Bronze Age civilisations and the emergence of the Iron Age cultures. Despite the fact that the gathering was an enjoyable event for all participants, its results appear to be less impressive, at least from the point of view of a catastrophist. In fact, neither the collapse of the Middle Bronze Age nor the ...
5. Updating Schaeffer's Destruction Inventory [Books] [de Grazia books]
... From: The Burning of Troy, by Alfred De Grazia Home | Issue Contents CHAPTER SIX Updating Schaeffer's Destruction Inventory * [* A summary of Professor Shaeffer's findings and notes of a research proposal to extend his work. A memorial to Professor Schaeffer (1898-1982) by Geoffrey Gammon occurs in V The Society for Interdisciplinary Studies Review 3 (1980-1), 70. The sites studied by Schaeffer and a map of them is contained in his work of 1948, Stratigraphie Comparée and this author's Chaos and Creation (1981).] In concluding his massive inventory and analysis of strata of destruction in Bronze Age settlements, Professor Claude Schaeffer of the University of Paris wrote as follows: ...
6. Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East [Journals] [SIS Review]
... From: SIS Review Vol IV No 4 (Spring 1980) Home | Issue Contents Bronze Age Destructions in the Near East Geoffrey Gammon Geoffrey Gammon has an Honours B.A . in History from London University and is currently studying for a Diploma in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, London. He is a Council member of the Society and convener of its Ancient History Study Group. The extensive work of the eminent French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer, correlating the chronology and stratigraphy of Bronze Age sites in the Near East, led him to conclude that many of the phases of Bronze Age civilisation were ended by catastrophes "not caused by the action of man". This paper ...

... . He sent forth the winds that he had created, all seven of them, in order to disturb the inward parts of Tiamat. They followed after him. Then the lord raised the thunderbolt, his mighty weapon. 50. He mounted the chariot, the storm unequalled in terror. He harnessed and yoked unto it four horses. Destructive, ferocious, overwhelming and swift of pace." By 1.60 Marduk and Tiamat are face to face, the latter defiant and unafraid. Accordingly Marduk challenges her to do battle, and by 1.94 they are hard at it: 95. "The lord spread out his net and caught her and the evil wind ...

... is Ps.98:8 (" Let the floods clap their hands, let the hills be joyful together.") Now of course all this is not to argue that every reference to darkness or floods in the psalms is necessarily nothing more than a metaphor. Nor am I about to sweep aside the Flood of Noah and the destruction of Sodom & Gomorrah as "mere metaphors". But it is a much needed warning, I think, against uncritically pillaging the psalms for catastrophic extracts without relating them to their proper biblical contexts. Let us now turn to some of V's actual uses of psalm material. At the outset we should note that V uses his extracts ...
... serve the Lord their God; knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed? ' The pharaoh remained obdurate, and three more plagues followed to complete the ruin. Locusts came in swarms to eat every green leaf that was left from the hail or that had sprung up since the plague of hail. An intense darkness followed and finally the destruction of the first-born of Egypt from the peasant to the palace of the king. With the tenth and last of the plagues, the pharaoh all but drove the Israelites out of Egypt. [Footnote: Ex. 12:30, 31, 33.] And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants ...
10. Mycenaean Culture: The Shift in Recent Historiography from its Destruction by Invasion to Destruction by Natural Agents [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... From: Catastrophism and Ancient History IV:2 (July 1982) Home | Issue Contents INTERACTION Mycenaean Culture: The Shift in Recent Historiography from its Destruction by Invasion to Destruction by Natural Agents Gunnar Heinsohn and Christoph Marx Scholars evaluating Immanuel Velikovsky's reconstruction- and thus confronting established views and theories of the Mycenaean collapse, are not often aware of how narrow the gap has become in recent years between catastrophist and establishment thinker. L. R. Palmer, professor of comparative philology at Oxford, in the revised edition of his Mycenaeans and Minoans as late as 1965 subscribes to C. W. Blegen's 1939 view that the "Dorian invasion" destroyed Mycenaean Greece:" After 1200 ...
