91. Earth Tectonics Viewed from Rock Mechanics [Journals] [SIS Review]
... was a later SB. Also, a S-wave shattering distorted, by stretching, the North American continent with a coupled BTB (McKenzie Cone to Mount McKinley) to Newfoundland. There is also a coupled orocline in the Antarctic peninsula. Dating the Rupture of Pangaea, Continental Drift, and the EGRR Farrand and Gajda determined, by the equilibrium radiocarbon method  that the beginning of the uplifts' in Canada occurred 7,500 to 10,500 years ago (8700 +/ - 765 years before present: this date is the average value read from the isobases' surrounding Hudson Bay, the maxima for these uplifts). To obtain this result they used the equilibrium ...

93. A Concluding Retort [Journals] [Pensee]
... centuries of the present era, respectively). In an article, "Astronomy and Chronology" (Pensee, Spring-Summer, 1973), I have shown how utterly unfounded this assembly of astronomical computations is, and on how many arbitrary assumptions it depends. The direct method of dating in stratigraphical archaeology where organic material is found is to apply radiocarbon tests. In "The Pitfalls of Radiocarbon Dating" (Pensee, Spring-Summer, 1974) I examined the limitations of the method (mainly resulting from the catastrophic events described in Worlds in Collision), but also its reliability in properly observed conditions. In "Ash" (Pensee, Winter 1973-74) a record is made of correspondence ...
94. Some Preliminary Remarks About Thera and Atlantis [Journals] [Kronos]
... Dynasty of Egypt, particularly the reigns of Hatshepsut and Thutmose III, who arc traditionally assigned to the early 15th century. If Velikovsky's reconstructed chronology is valid, these two rulers belong in the 10th century B. C., as does the Late Minoan I period, as does the eruption of Thera. It is true that a highly-publicized radiocarbon test on Theran wood provided a date in keeping with the standard chronological assessment, but it must be pointed out that that date does not fit well after the application of the bristlecone calibration ( a system actually not trusted by this writer). Furthermore, other radiocarbon dates have been determined which would make the eruption younger. One such ...
95. A PERSONAL MEMOIR [Journals] [Aeon]
... Pennsylvania, just an hour's drive away, and my correspondence with Velikovsky was followed by visits to his home. A lifelong friendship would develop. During the period of my initial correspondence I had heard from other sources that Einstein, shortly before his death, had written a letter on Velikovsky's behalf, requesting the Metropolitan Museum of Art to perform radiocarbon tests on samples from the New Kingdom of Egypt, a critical period in Velikovsky's reconstruction. I wrote the museum inquiring about the results of the tests, only to be told that they had received no such request. Shortly thereafter I queried Velikovsky and sent him a copy of their letter. He replied, sending me a copy of ...
96. Cuban Prehistory [Journals] [Kronos]
... stone carvings, and- perhaps most significantly- studies of the location and numerical distribution of residual deposits that raise vexing questions about the accepted theories regarding the origin of the peoples known collectively as Ciboney (Siboney), who represent the first, aceramic (non-pottery making) phase of Cuban prehistory. These questions are highlighted by the results of radiocarbon dating. We can consider the case of the Ciboney culture which occupied the entire island, and is conventionally regarded as an offshoot of Amazonian groups. The accepted hypothesis has been that these preceramic peoples came to the Greater Antilles following the same "island hopping" route that was to serve centuries later as the thoroughfare which brought the Arawaks ...
97. Cosmic Catastrophism [Journals] [Aeon]
... in the Near East, Europe, or the New World. Individual sites were destroyed during those periods, but there are no signs of the universal conflagration one would expect from Velikovsky's writings. However, Velikovsky negates some of this archaeological evidence by questioning the dating of the remains (see "Reconstructing Ancient Chronology" below). Finally, radiocarbon dating does not support Velikovsky's claims. (80) He has questioned the validity of this scientific dating method because it was based on the assumption that the amount of carbon-14 in the atmosphere did not change over time. Velikovsky's theory of cosmic catastrophes, however, suggests that new carbon (including some C14) was added to the atmosphere ...

... alignment and then regard this coincidence as significant. One example suffices. At Building J, Monte Alban, Aveni detected an alignment of which he has the following to say: "Our computer told us that the only significant astronomical event occurring within ½ degree of that direction in 275 BC, the time of construction of the building according to radiocarbon dating, was the rising of Capella, sixth brightest star in the sky. We were especially surprised when the computer told us that Capella was unique among the bright stars at that time, since it underwent heliacal rising precisely on the same day as the first annual passage of the sun across the zenith of Monte Alban, which was ...

100. Towards a New Chronology of Ancient Egypt (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... 17 (1990) p. 89-141. Reviewed by: Herbert A. Storck The author of this article and I are agreed on a number of important points. First the need for a new chronology of the Ancient Near East. We also share the premise that Sothic dating is suspect and that Sothis is probably Venus. The problems of Radiocarbon are much more complex. However, in that the dates are in relative order, i.e . OK before MK, NK and LK etc. makes me believe that "real time" of some sort is being measured. I am not inclined to dismiss them even if there are problems with some statistics and tree rings. ...
