121. Reviews [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... Syria and the Hittites, Cyprus, Syro-Palestine, Egypt, and Mesopotamia (x2). There are also reviews of two books; one on the Aegean, Anatolia and Europe and the other on the Mycenaeans and Europe. The chronology of the ancient world is determined in a number of ways. For Europe, the main dating method is radiocarbon dating. For Egypt and areas in contact with Mycenaean Greece the main dating method is still pottery style chronology. There is some conflict between the two, and this is noted, but the fundamental argument is that the chronologies, especially those based on pottery, are inflated. Chronological anomalies are shown up for all areas, with a ...

122. Joseph and Imhotep (Letters) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... and Imhotep John W. Hand & R.M . Porter Dear Sir: Regarding Mr. Jesse E. Lasken's comments on my identification of Joseph with Imhotep, the following rejoinder is offered. Lasken calls attention to inscriptions of the architect of the Persian period, Khnum-ab-ra, with which I am ignorant. Since my dating is dependent on radiocarbon analysis (uncorrected for tree-ring matching which I believe to be flawed), it would interest me greatly to learn how many generations intervened between Imhotep and Khnum-ab-ra. If the number is on the order of 60 or less, then this would give weight to raw radiocarbon dates whereas eighty or more would give the tree-ring correction an edge. ...

123. C&C Review 1992 Issue (Volume XIV): Contents [Journals] [SIS Review]
... Eocene Polar Forests 7 The first of two articles on the curious flora and fauna of the Canadian High Arctic islands in the Eocene epoch concentrates on the flora. How did abundant vegetation grow at polar latitudes? Conditions which might account for the pattern of plant life would be lethal to the fauna, which included reptilians. Jesse Lasken: Misusing Radiocarbon: A Case Study 17 Published radiocarbon data are seen to have undergone a selection procedure which Jesse Lasken finds questionable. The problems of old wood' and of modern contamination' are highlighted.

... I'm less interested in appeals to authority than in claims that are specific enough to be verified. Now to get down to cases. Aside from the perversely hypocritical slanders and some foolish general remarks, Ginenthal has three specific arguments to present. Two of these deal with maps and the subglacial topography of Greenland and Antarctica. The third is a radiocarbon date. Fig. 1. The Zeno map of the north. Fig.2 . Mallery's doctored version of the Zeno map with Icaria greatly enlarged, rotated slightly, and repositioned to the east. (Adapted from The Rediscovery of Lost America.) Let's go first to the Zeno map. This map was drawn to illustrate a ...

... in London The meeting at the Library Association on 30th May was for those who were able to attend our most stimulating occasion so far. Despite the effects of jet lag, Professor de Grazia, besides bringing members the news from America reported in the following pages, discoursed at length and answered a large number of questions on the Flood, radiocarbon dating, the origin of Religion, Saturn and the earlier catastrophes, the age of the Moon, and his own researches into the origin of the (schizotypical) human brain, the history of the Moon, and the destructions of ancient civilisations by catastrophic fire. This last subject, which Professor de Grazia subsumes under the new heading ...

... of a low Nile and low pollen counts dated to 2600 BCE: however, she seems to have overlooked much of the evidence for catastrophe at the end of EB III provided by the sites themselves, and she fails to look for a cause for this climatic change. One plus point for the article is her realisation that archaeological and calibrated radiocarbon dates give conflicting results: acceptance of the calibrated 14C dates would mean postulating a (non-real) 400-years gap between the end of EB III and the beginning of EB IV. The end of EB IV can be firmly fixed: it coincides with the beginning of Egypt's 12th Dynasty, and it is clear that Richard prefers the archaeological evidence ...

... many others. It explores the scientific research over the past twenty-five years from numerous fields, and goes well beyond to expose the inept and contradictory data that indicates that gradualism has failed to explain this extinction. Evidence rarely analyzed is introduced that no catastrophist researcher has ever presented, with hundreds of footnotes. For example, in the field of radiocarbon dating of extinction, research has never dealt with the phenomenon of the Seuss Effect, which introduced so much additional Carbon 12 and 13 to the atmosphere in those ancient times, that all dates pertaining to the extinction, derived by this method, should no longer be accepted. As another example, ice core research carried out in Greenland ...

128. Metallurgy and Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the old arguments based on diffusion of culture from the Near East into Europe having been in full flood several years ago, highlighted in particular by COLIN RENFREW'S Before Civilisation (1973). While Renfrew's book had an enormous impact and represents something of a landmark in archaeological thinking, his work was marred by two serious difficulties, the questions of radiocarbon dating and diffusion. Renfrew's book tends to give the totally misleading impression that the case against the old diffusionist theories rests largely on the "second radiocarbon revolution", that which pushed back the C14 dates of prehistoric Europe by recalibrating them according to the Suess Curve based on the tree-rings of the Californian Bristlecone Pine. This method - sought ...

... that there are clear signs of increased tectonic activity over the past 6 Myrs. Interglacial Pole Shifts? (Reuters, Yahoo! News, 12.11.03; The Times, 19.11.03.) Among the large mammals which disappeared from North America at the end of the Ice Age' were horses. Research on radiocarbon dated fossil bones shows that extinct Alaskan horses underwent a rapid decrease in size before they disappeared, indicating that it was climate change, with resulting vegetation shift from grassland to tundra, as the cause. Phillip Clapham writes that this suggests strongly that the end of the "Ice Age" was in effect a pole shift, a factor ...

... decays can play more havoc with the radioactive clocks than anything normally considered. Should catastrophic episodes also be times of enhanced neutrino flux, a not too improbable possibility, then these disruptive events could also reset' every nuclear time-piece in the Solar System, giving the whole timescale a forward kick which makes the world age' in an instant! Radiocarbon Chronometry The radiocarbon clock is especially sensitive. Carbon-14, the basis of that clock, requires an induced decay to produce the carbon from nitrogen: 14N7+-> 14C6+ !e++ v 16a The unstable carbon-14 atom so formed decays slowly back into nitrogen: 14C6-> 14N7+ e-+ !v 16b 5770yr ...
