101. Bookshelf [Journals] [SIS Review]
... touch of irony is provided here, when Velikovsky sets about renaming the Dynasties whose numerical order he has utterly disrupted. Finally, the book has as an appendix the crucially important paper "Astronomy and Chronology" (already published in Pensée ). On this paper the whole concept of a revised chronology depends - it is Velikovsky's key attack on Sothic dating, hitherto the very backbone of Egyptian chronology. Velikovsky shows that little more than good common sense is needed to see that the supposedly "scientific" Sothic dating scheme, which is based on the authority of jottings in Greek manuscripts and not on native Egyptian documents, is founded on quite false premises. The Sothic scheme is contrived ...
102. Towards a New Chronology of Ancient Egypt (Review) [Journals] [Catastrophism & Ancient History]
... of Ancient Egypt,"By Jesse E. Lasken in Discussions in Egyptology 17 (1990) p. 89-141. Reviewed by: Herbert A. Storck The author of this article and I are agreed on a number of important points. First the need for a new chronology of the Ancient Near East. We also share the premise that Sothic dating is suspect and that Sothis is probably Venus. The problems of Radiocarbon are much more complex. However, in that the dates are in relative order, i.e . OK before MK, NK and LK etc. makes me believe that "real time" of some sort is being measured. I am not inclined to ...
103. The Hyksos Pyramid Builders [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... . Thus, the history of the first millennium, which is known solely through the Classical and Hellenistic writers, was dated according to these sources. The history of the second millennium, however, was supplied by cross-referencing with Egyptian hieroglyphic material, and this chronology is based solely on these sources, which are dated according to Borchart's pseudo-astronomical "Sothic" calendar. The final part of the triplication, the ghost kingdoms of the third millennium, were supplied by cross-referencing with Mesopotamian cuneiform documents, and this chronology is based solely on these sources, which are ultimately dated in a fundamentalist way on the basis of the biblical date of Abraham (a native of Ur). Thus, ...
104. Solomon, The Exodus and Abraham Related to Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the entry of the Israelites into Canaan is marked by the transition from EB III to EB/MB (MB I on the American system), then what process in the Judges period is represented by the further marked transition from EB/MB to MB I (MB I to MB II on the American system)? Some Comments on Sothic and Carbon Dating This article would not be complete without some indication of the approach to be adopted on these subjects. It is to be hoped that Sothic dating will soon be dead and buried. This method, whereby the Egyptian civil calendar of 365 days per year is supposed to have slowly progressed relative to the true year on a ...
105. The Celestial Dynamics of "Worlds in Collision" [Journals] [SIS Review]
... text holds the original meaning, and the Greek text speaks of "the star of Isis", which is Venus. In the second half of the first millennium the Maya, the Greeks and the Egyptians in fact had a Venus year; and the Egyptologist Weill has remarked that the Egyptians themselves had no idea that they observed a "Sothic Year" - they knew nothing about it. There was also a very important observation of Venus in, I think, the middle of the 18th century: it was recorded by Bruce, who trained in Africa, and he writes that Venus was so luminous that it could be seen during the day, and that it was brighter ...
106. Timna and Egyptian Dates [Journals] [Aeon]
... finds of Stratum III and Stratum II certainly qualify for an Iron Age. That the strata are assigned to a Bronze Age is not due to any archaeological context but to pseudoastronomical chronological constructs of modern Egyptology. Since, however, Rothenberg and his opponents alike believe in usefulness of this astronomical construct- i.e ., the purely ideological Sothic method of time-reckoning- for dating ancient Egypt and its neighbors, his innocent deception went unnoticed. The opposing parties could settle for peace in a folie a deux. In Egyptology proper, however, Rothenberg's and his opponents' belief in Sothic dates is on the retreat. Qualified scientists have expressed their doubts on the matter, (31 ...
... Velikovsky was quite ignorant of science, and I cheerfully dismiss as nonsense his explanation of physical events, where indeed he gives any. Nonetheless, his cosmic scenario just might have some truth to it; I severely doubt it, but I cannot disprove it. There does seem to be something unsatisfactory about the conventional chronology of Egypt (the Sothic periods, for example), and perhaps some of Velikovsky's revisions will turn out to be a better approach to the truth. But I claim no certain global answer. Despite that, I think the quest has been highly successful. Most narrowly, I have the satisfaction of having become an expert; when I now read some new ...
108. Horizons [Journals] [SIS Workshop]
... the chronology of the ancient world. These include: (i ) the compilation of a comprehensive reference volume containing all known radio-carbon tests made on samples falling in the time period from 2000 BC to 1 AD (plus analytical commentary); (ii) a catalogue of Egyptian and Assyrian chronological anomalies; and (iii) an analysis of Sothic dating and its effect on the history of Egypt. The results of these projects will be made available in the form of ISIS Occasional Publications during 1987, 1988 and 1989. A major survey of archaeological anomalies from Europe and the Near East will also be published as part of the first ISIS Bulletin before the end of 1986. Preparations ...
109. News C&C Review 2001:1 [Journals] [SIS Review]
... are no fundamental objections. Trevor Palmer and Steve Mitchell return to the question of whether centuries can be removed from the medieval Dark Ages and find fundamental problems with the proposals of Niemitz and Fomenko. Bob Johnson's analysis of Mayan calendars looks at the curiosity of the 260 day cycle. Eric Aitchison returns to Assyrian history and Jesse Lasken to the Sothic cycle. The regular Recent Developments in Near Eastern Archaeology', Monitor' and Bookshelf' columns each contain bumper amounts of interesting information, thanks to the efforts of Jill Abery and Bob Porter. There is also a bumper collection of reviews, including a review of Trevor Palmer's Controversy: Catastrophism and Revolution, The Crystal Sun by Robert ...

... OLD? - The original article in which Velikovsky predicted the remanent magnetism later found in the moonrocks (reprinted from the N. Y. Times). STRAKA: SCIENCE OR ANTI-SCIENCE? - A reply to criticisms made by Professor W. C. Straka, a Boston University astronomer. ASTRONOMY AND CHRONOLOGY - A devastating attack on the "Sothic" dating system. THE SCANDAL OF ENKOMI - A section from the unpublished historical volume, THE DARK AGE OF GREECE, examining one of the many controversies arising from the incorrect Egyptian chronology's distortion of the chronology of Mycenae. THE ATOM AND OIL - Velikovsky's views on nuclear energy (reprinted from the N. Y. Post, 1948 ...
