... epigraphic material. This assumption encouraged the subsequent false identifications, which in turn reinforced the original error. As a result, we have the total distortion of the Egyptian chronology and history in vogue today. Furthermore, the early assumption of largely consecutive dynasties has changed relatively little. The main exceptions involve intermediate period' dynasties. For example, Sothic dating as commonly practised necessitates compression of Dynasties 13-17. Similarly, the extent of the overlap among the Third Intermediate Period' dynasties (21-25) is a point of disagreement between conventional chronologists and the new' chronologists and also amongst the latter. In fact, the epitomes of Manetho and other material are quite compatible with the proposition that ...

... of this dating method to a past environment that experienced cosmic cataclysms with intrusions of carbonaceous materials of extraneous origin and worldwide conflagrations that must have unbalanced the C14-C12 ratio in the hydrosphere and biosphere. 8. Finally, there is the argument of "astronomical dating." Until recently it was regarded as a formidable one. With the help of Sothic calculation, or the movement of the day of the heliacal (simultaneous with the sun) rising of the star Sothis around the calendar of 365 days, a chronology was erected, and the words "astronomically established" had a baleful preeminence over any and every chronological dating- and a reverential status also among scholars in all disciplines. By ...

... one involving separate 600/40/2300 year cycles which only fully synchronise with each other every 13,800 years. One such synchronism occurred in AD 69-70 when the temple at Jerusalem was destroyed, with the 2300 year component being incorporated into a prophecy of Daniel [8 ]. Another important cycle was the symbolic 25 year Lunar/Sothic cycle, which ran through the Sothic recorded date of 1321 BC [9 ]. The editor (Moses?) of the chronologies in Genesis knew of at least the first two of those fixed dates and used them in his re-arrangement of the Genesis chronologies. The major amendment was to relocate the symbolic/cyclical year 600 of Noah ...

... did his homework to evaluate this aspect of the historical equation. He presented strong evidence in the supplement to his book, Peoples of the Sea, (New York, 1977), pages 205 to 244, that the foundations of Egyptian chronology are in error. In fact, one of these foundation stones criticized by Velikovsky, namely- astronomical Sothic dating- has already been abandoned by certain Egyptologists. "Work on chronology has clearly arrived at a crisis. The reason for this is in part adoption of dogmatic [Sothic] scientific facts without testing their applicability to Egyptian material and the reliability of this material." (181) Though other historians debate this conclusion, it does indicate ...

... powerful or dominant dynasties and their kings are included. However, this interpretation is confounded by the remaining kings in the Sothis list, of which it is difficult to make much sense. The work should therefore be treated with at least as much caution as the epitomes of Manetho. 4. Astronomical data, with particular reference to the so-called Sothic cycle, are regarded by most ancient historians as so useful and accurate that the Egyptian chronology derived from them has in turn been used to establish the relative and absolute dates for the Minoans and Mycenaeans, Hittites and other peoples of the ancient Near East. As Gardiner put it, when justifying his reluctant conclusion that the interval between Dynasties ...

... of many ancient societies. Typically, this was by about 5 to 7 centuries, although the Sebennytic Dynasty of Egypt was lowered by about 8 centuries. For many years I have supported these various lowerings. In the early 1990s, I even began arguing that Dynasty XII of Egypt also had to be lowered, by a little over one Sothic period. Actually, the famous Sothic date in Year 7 of Sesostris III would need to be lowered from -1871 (where Parker [3 ] placed it) to -394, which amounts to nearly 1477 years. This lowering of Dynasty XII means we must also lower (also by roughly one Sothic period) not only the entire Middle ...

... thus far. In this essay we will examine the passages which have been advanced as referring to Sirius and the Morning Star. The correct identification of these two bodies is a matter of paramount importance not only for a correct understanding of ancient Egyptian religion, but- because of the heavy reliance upon astronomically-oriented methods of retrocalculating history (via the Sothic cycle)- of an adequate foundation for ancient chronology as well. (2 ) On Spd.t And Sirius The Pyramid Texts are thought to have been compiled in the third millennium BCE, although many of the passages may reflect predynastic beliefs.

Another crucial paper to appear in Pensée was Velikovsky's long-unpublished assault on the foundations of conventional chronology - in particular the supposed Sothic dating system. It is interesting to note that subsequent to the appearance of this paper (" Astronomy and Chronology") some specialists in the field arrived at similar conclusions on the validity of astronomical dating methods [10]. Though by 1974, after ten issues, Pensée ceased publication, its circulation had reached a figure of 15 ...

The poor documentation of these finds in the Serapeum also compounds the difficulties in using these records. Astronomical synchronisms. The best known of these is the Sothic cycle, and careful study of this led Richard A. Parker to argue that the dates of the Twelfth dynasty could be fixed with absolute precision.(1 ) More recent research has eroded this confidence, questioning many of the assumptions used with the Sothic Cycle, and as a result experts have moved away from relying on this Cycle ...

Since there are different sources of error in the four chronologies, his revisions of them are based sometimes on independent grounds but sometimes on the dependence of one on another. In Egypt the original sin' of the conventional chronology (here he follows Velikovsky) is the 19th century pseudo-astronomical Sothic' dating [7 ]. In Mesopotamia, the original sin Heinsohn has discovered is the assumption by 19th century Assyriologists that traditional Biblical chronology is accurate enough for a handful of Biblical names with putative parallels in Mesopotamian texts to be used to anchor Mesopotamian figures in the correct centuries [8 ]. In Hebrew chronology the original sin is ...
