... called Ten Trials, which would set forth tests of his theories to be done by scientists to either prove or refute them." He "would also like to publish his correspondence with Albert Einstein," and "a book called Ash, a record of his 76 Beyond Velikovsky struggle with the Scientific Establishment to have Egyptian material dated at radiocarbon laboratories. And then he has the idea that it might be worthwhile to publish some of the letters he has received from people around the world- say ten letters for each of the i 8 years since the publication of Worlds in Collision. He has a prospective title for that book, too- Letters to a Heretic." ...

... for not only had he disregarded my request for this test, but also at our previous meeting he had stressed the great importance for the acceptance of a theory that it be able to generate correct predictions. He stood up and asked: "Which experiment would you like to have performed now?" I asked him to help me obtain radiocarbon tests to check on my reconstruction of ancient history. He was very emphatic in his desire to help me in this. This was our last meeting; he died a few days later. In fulfillment of his wish, a letter went from his home after his death to the Metropolitan Museum of Art with the request that some of ...

143. Joseph and Imhotep [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... Mesopotamia were devastated. The Early Bronze Age came to a close. The unseen gods of air and storm became preeminent- Marduk, Adad, Hadad, BaaI, Amen, Teshub and Zeus. The Israelites left Goshen singing the praises of Yahweh for their deliverance. To resolve the dating problem, we must call upon a new science, Radiocarbon Dating. Organic matter that died at the time of interest can be dated by measuring the ratio of radioactive carbon presently contained to the total carbon in the sample. We have radiocarbon dates of artifacts from the time of Djoser and of Mentuhotep. The very first king to be dated by radiocarbon analysis was Djoser. Willard F. Libby ...

144. Catastrophes and the History of Life on Earth [Journals] [SIS Review]
... been several global catastrophes before his proposed 1450 BC event, producing impressive evidence of such occurrences, he nevertheless went on (at the end of chapter XII) to suggest that large-scale catastrophic extinctions of the Ice Age megafauna had occurred at the time of the Venus encounter, much later than generally supposed. In apparent support of this notion, radiocarbon dating studies have now shown that mammoths were living on Wrangel Island, off the north-eastern coast of Siberia, until around 2000 BC. However, rather than this being of general significance, it seems that Wrangel Island was the last refuge of the mammoths. These same radiocarbon dating studies, as well as others, have indicated that mammoths ...

... no lengthy Gaulish texts, and the language ceased to be spoken in the 6th century A.D . The dating of these splits is highly problematic. Most differences of chronographic opinion are due to differences in dating method. Some prehistorians, like Jacquetta Hawkes, depend chiefly on stratigraphy.(12) Others, like Grahame Clark, prefer radiocarbon dating.(13) Still others, like Colin Renfrew, date events by dendrochronological re-calibration of radiometric results.(14) Other differences, however, are due less to technique than to basic assumption about the nature of diachronic change. Catastrophists, who assume radical discontinuity in protohistoric development, are inclined to prefer the "revised chronology ...

These layers are contemporary with upheavals we know of in prehistoric Europe."(2 ) And the most important portion of the letter for my work was in his note to page 278: You wish that radiocarbon analyses be made of objects dating from the New Kingdom. I offer you gladly the material I have from dated Ras Shamra levels of the time of Amenophis III, IV (Akhnaton), and Ramses II. I could send it over to you for analysis by radiocarbon, or better, you come to collect it in Paris. ...

... Dr Euan MacKie, without whose involvement and effort this Conference would not have been the success it was. Let us now look forward to the next such Conference and hope that this was but the first in a long and fruitful series. HAROLD TRESMAN Elstree Blind Dating Sir, During a discussion at the recent Glasgow conference on the use of radiocarbon dating techniques to establish an absolute chronology for the New Kingdom period in ancient Egypt, one speaker claimed that the dates of -899 and -846 obtained by the British Museum for samples of palm kernels and reed mats from the tomb of Tutankhamun (l ) were untrustworthy because the precautions taken during the collection and storage of these samples were not ...

148. Editorial [Journals] [SIS Review]
... is sad to report that so far the exciting challenge presented by Ages in Chaos has been, in the main, reacted to in a spirit which can only be described as flippant and shallow, a poor comment on the numerous scholars who have shied away from the intellectual effort of objectively examining and reassessing their own belief. The paucity of radiocarbon tests so far performed for material from the XVIIIth Dynasty (see E. W. MacKie: "Radiocarbon Dates for the Eighteenth Dynasty"), despite Velikovsky's strenuous efforts over the last twenty-five years, demonstrate a remarkable reluctance to pursue scientific inquiry beyond well-trodden paths. Discussing the debate between the revised and conventional chronologies, Dr Ellis Rivkin ...

149. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... A detailed report of the excavation will be found in NATURE (Vol. 260: April 5, 1976), a further report in the current ANTIQUITY (Vol. LI, No. 201: March 1977) and a more popular account in the ILLUSTRATED LONDON NEWS of June 1977. Elsewhere in this journal, the problem of anomalous radiocarbon dates is discussed: it is reassuring to find that the NATURE report includes such dates, though recognising that they are archaeologically unacceptable. The odd dates are of interest to Velikovskians. The bottom level of the site yields a date of 2600BC (level 28), level 17 gives a date of 1200BC and subsequent levels fall into sequence ...

... colleagues seem to be quite happy about the correlation down to this point. But Rose does not tell us that. Why does he imply the opposite? Note the striking correlation between the d 18O profiles from Dye 3 and carbonate from a Swiss lakebed in Fig. 12. The Lake Gerzensee time scale is completely independent, being based on radiocarbon dating. The Wisconsin/Holocene transition at 1786 m in the Dye 3 core is dated at 8770 B.C . from annual d 18O, dust, and acidity cycles. I ask the reader: what "local conditions" can be explained by such aclose parallel between places separated by thousands of miles? Rose quotes a long ...
