101. New Insights to Antiquity: A Drawing Aside of the Veil by Richard Petersen [Journals] [Aeon]
... due to electric discharges, but gives no further explanation of the phenomenon. As if this weren't enough, the loess deposit near Council Bluffs, Iowa, is rife with tiny snail shells that are unfossilized, and as fresh and undegraded as if deposited very recently. In fact, Petersen concludes that these deposits cannot be extremely old, despite radiocarbon dating of the carbonate-based snail shells that show no residual Cl4 at all. Radiocarbon analysis is limited to a maximum of some 47,000 years. However, the bizarre conditions Petersen has developed in his scenario preclude radio-dating of geologic formations with any hope of success. Moreover, he states that decay rates are not affected by conditions achieved ...
... gain. Why were scientists outraged by Velikovsky's books? This is the question I have been asking myself because I too felt a sense of outrage even though I have a kindly feeling towards him as a friend. At the same time that the American Behavioral Scientist plans were moving forward, Velikovsky was also becoming enthusiastic over recent developments on the radiocarbon front. On January 21, 1963, he wrote his German translator Else Fuhr that an Arabic professor at Princeton University had informed the Cairo Museum's chief chemist, Sack Iskander Hanna, of Fuhr's forthcoming visit to Egypt; on the strength of this introduction, would she agree to make the necessary arrangements for Ramses III's mummy to be dated ...
103. Confessions of a Cenoist [Journals] [Aeon]
... with evidence that proves me wrong. Dating techniques are a growth industry. At last count, the study of ice cores alone has generated more than thirty dating methods and, as expected, most results validate the long duration of ice ages and inter-ice ages. The weight of dating-evidence is intimidating. The more influential methods of ice core, radiocarbon, and tree ring dating are founded on extensive research. Although the theories are not ironclad, the endless flow of big numbers is unnerving. This rock is 350 million years old; here is an eight thousand-year-old bristlecone pine; and every dinosaur bone is older than 65 million years. In a fantasy debate I carry on with a ...
104. An Appendix to My Articles on Hatshepsut and Thutmose III [Journals] [SIS Review]
... ancient astronaut" theorist. Blair himself rephrases the question more appropriately, and it is to be regretted that von Däniken was rather unnecessarily introduced into what is otherwise a succinct restatement of the major points made in Ages in Chaos. Blair skilfully summarises the arguments and describes how his own interest in Velikovsky's work was revived by the curious results from radiocarbon tests being produced during the 1960s. He cites a publication of the Egypt Exploration Society about recent discoveries in Egypt and the Sudan: "There are, however, a number of other problems still to be resolved in the application of the Carbon 14 method to dating. For example, most measurements made have revealed a startling discrepancy between ...
105. Another Look at Velikovsky's Ages in Chaos [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... generated both by scholars like Redford and Stiebling and by his own followers. But, more importantly, significant areas of defective research and a disturbing number of internal contradictions are now at hand for an informed appraisal of his revisions. Perhaps it is time to look for alternative reconstructions, still wrestling with alternatives and interpretations but stressing the facts. Radiocarbon dating can play an important part in future studies. While some problems complicate its calibration, the fact remains that of 159 dates available for Egypt and Nubia, taken in the early 1970's from objects datable on historical grounds, a significant pattern was found to confirm the relative order of the chronological structures previously worked out. (For dates ...
106. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... will be debated. Most Near Eastern specialists believe that the evidence opposes Velikovsky's views, and this conference will provide the opportunity to bring the major issues in the debate to the attention of a wider audience, with qualified speakers on both sides. One section of the programme will consider the astronomical basis of Egyptian chronology and another the evidence of radiocarbon dates. A consideration of the implications for celestial mechanics is also likely to be included. The Society is assisting with preparations for the Conference, and speakers will include a number whose names are already familiar to members of the Society and readers of its Review, as well as scholars from British universities. Dr. Velikovsky has expressed his ...
107. Additional Data for the Combined Velikovsky, Glasgow and Heinsohn Scenario? [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... From: SIS Chronology and Catastrophism Workshop 2005:1 (February 2005) Home | Issue Contents Additional Data for the Combined Velikovsky, Glasgow and Heinsohn Scenario?Sjef van Asten In a number of previous issues of C&C Review the low chronology' of Israel Finkelstein was discussed [1 ]. Based on archaeological finds and radiocarbon dates from Tel Rehov, Megiddo, Tel Dor and Tel Hadar, he concluded that Megiddo, Hazor and Gezer must have been fortified in the time of Omri and Ahab and not, as the Old Testament tells us, in the time of Solomon [2 ]. The destruction of northern parts of Israel occurred in the time of the ...
108. The Homeric Question [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the direction of transmission appears back to front. Linear A' on Crete is found in Middle and Late Bronze Age contexts of the second millennium BC but the very similar signs of Old European' go back to the Neolithic and Chalcolithic. Granted that the Neolithic dates (e .g . sixth millennium BC) are arrived at by calibrated radiocarbon and are grossly inflated, there is still a necessary time gap due to the intervening Early Bronze Age, confirmed by pottery links and sequences across the whole area. An idea, long since rejected, which may be relevant here is contained in Petrie's Formation of the Alphabet (London 1912). He observed that potters' marks from ...

... fact that the 12th Dynasty of Egypt existed in the first and not the second millennium BC."  However, there is, at present, no justification for such an unequivocal conclusion. Lynn E. Rose. (Photograph- 1996- by Dwardu Cardona.) As with Sothic dating, many revisionists question the basis of radiocarbon dating, and Ginenthal did so in 1997 in his book, The Extinction of the Mammoth. However, in Pillars of the Past he takes a somewhat different line. Although he accuses orthodox historians of double standards because they tend to ignore individual results that fall outside the expected range, he nevertheless joins them in believing that the radiocarbon ...
