61. Natural Catastrophes During Bronze Age Civilisations [Journals] [Aeon]
... the eruption of a volcano which would have brought dust into the atmosphere and thus blocked out the sunlight. Baillie informed his audience that there exist a series of rings which show no summer growth and which were dated, via his sequence, to 3624 BP (1627 BC). His conclusion was that this must be the date of the Santorini eruption because it fits in with the date proposed by some archaeologists. This date was also correlated with high acidity levels in the Greenland Ice cores from Camp Century. Baillie correlates tree-ring dates, ice core dates, Biblical dates and events, and the chronology of the ancient world as constructed in the last century, in order to provide ...
62. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... thought it noteworthy that the Palestinian rift, in which many Bronze Age cities were repeatedly built and rebuilt, is one of the major plate boundaries. Further afield, in China, not on a major plate boundary, legends suggest an early destruction by flood rather than earthquake. And the eruption of the volcano on the island of Thera (Santorini) in the Aegean must certainly have played some part in the decline of Minoan civilisation. On balance, the archaeological and geological evidence that many prehistoric and proto-historic cultures were struck down by massive natural catastrophes, rather than the action of man, is impressive. Taking into account ancient man's obsession with the skies, Dr Baity has recently ...
63. Geomagnetic Reversals? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... for carbonate and organic carbon records they show marked fluctuations at about 2000 BC and at about 1000 BC. There is a clear correlation with the Gothenburg event at 13 500 BP and the Foigheraiter event of the 8th century BC. The change around 2000 BC does not correlate with any reported magnetic reversal, but it is interesting to note that Santorini erupted violently in the 15th century BC and Bond (1976) has pointed out that there is in fact a multiplicity of sources of the volcanic deposits in the Aegean area. Magaritz and Kaufman (1973), in a study of fossil shells in the Eastern Mediterranean, also note an abrupt change in composition at about 3000 BC. ...
64. Sean Mewhinney's Critique Based On Bombastic Subterfuge, Evasion And Denial [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... as an issue for Mewhinney's interpretation of the relevance of this data. "This point is made specifically clear by Walter Sullivan in a New York Times article: `fifty-seven of 69 [volcanic] events recorded [in the Greenland ice core] for the last 2,000 years were matched with known eruptions' (Walter Sullivan, "Santorini Volcano Ash Traced Afar, Gives A Date of 1623 B.C ." The New York Times, (June 7, 1994), p. C8) This means that over 18% of the eruptions are traced to unknown volcanic events. However, in the deeper ice, from 2,000 to 7,000 years ...

... rocks. The eruption of 1638, on the authority of Scrope, also gave birth to an isle, but 200 years later its skeleton remained solely as an eviscerated shoal 80 fathoms below the ocean. Consideration of these proceedings leads to the conclusion that whereas there is really no difference in the principle which causes earthquakes and eruptions in Sicily or Santorini or the Azores, the physical surroundings of an area may make great differences in detail. An island thrown above the level of the water may persist in the almost tideless seas of the Aegean, but in the middle of the Atlantic, with its immense waves and currents and tides, a meteoric body would require to be cast on ...
67. Minerals, Metals, Glazing and Man, by John Dayton, Reviewed by Geoffrey Gammon [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... There is therefore an overlap between the second Intermediate Period and the early XVIIIth Dynasty, thereby reducing considerably the 200 year gap between the XIIth and XVIIIth Dynasties recognized in the accepted chronology of Egypt. He also believes that the end of Middle Minoan III in Crete was roughly contemporary with (but not attributable to) the destruction of Thera (Santorini), which was in its turn contemporary with the Exodus. He dates both events to the reign of either Thutmose III or Thutmose IV. Dayton also attributes the spread of advanced glazing technology from the Aegean to the Near East, to the effects of the destruction of Thera This is first evident in northern Syria, then controlled by ...
68. The Age of Moses [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... kings. In Sumer and Akkad, the catastrophic storm engendered by Enlil wiped out the capital city of Naram Sin (Sargon's grandson), Agade, and salted the lowlands with high tides from the persian Gulf. The 3rd Dynasty of Ur foundered at about the same time while, in the eastern Mediterranean, Thera, the great volcano on Santorini, blew its top sending ash falls all the way to the Nile Delta. Some interdisciplinary studies (Velikovsky, Patton, etc. ) have sought to establish an extra-terrestrial force such as near collisions with Venus, Mars or a comet as contributing causes for these catastrophes. Whatever the cause, when the episode had passed, Moses had ...
69. A Conversation with Barry Fell [Journals] [Horus]
... So because of that its been hard for me to treat catastrophism's ideas seriously - but, of course, one shouldn't throw away the baby with the bath water and, undoubtedly there have been catastrophes - great catastrophes which perhaps affected the course of civilization. Everybody talks about the one that apparently wiped out the Minoan civilization, - possibly in Santorini that may correspond to the story of Atlantis. That kind of idea is much more acceptable to me than the story of Atlantis as it's commonly presented in which some island in the mid-Atlantic is supposed to have gone down. I can't accept that. The seafloor of the Atlantic ocean is such as to make it quite impossible that anything ...
