41. Early History of the Israelite People: Biblical Fundamentalism in History (I) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... This is because pre-Hellenistic strata, not only in Assyria but also in Thompson's Galilee, received biblical dates instead of the Greek ones. Let us continue checking his "independent" dates. When Thompson speaks of "Egyptian forces...of the [12th] century" reaching the Levant, (14) he applies Egyptological, so-called Sothic, chronology which Egyptologists themselves abandoned almost a decade ago as pseudoastronomical. (15) The opening lecture of the 4th International Congress of Egyptology in 1985, at Munich, was exclusively devoted to the demolition and debunking of the Sothic anchor of ancient Near Eastern chronology: "Work on chronology has clearly arrived at a crisis. The reason ...

A. Parker's widely accepted thesis that the Egyptians used a 365 day calendar throughout most of their history. They note that there is little positive evidence in favour of Parker's contention: for the Old Kingdom we have only two inscriptions mentioning the five days upon the year'. This they argue does not necessarily mean five epagomenal days: an alternative explanation could be found within a ...
43. A Chronology for the Middle Kingdom and Israel's Egyptian Bondage - II. Israel in Egypt [Journals] [SIS Review]
... presented below that these remarks should really be applied to a period far longer than one century. (ii) The Duration of the XIIIth Dynasty As was explained in Part 1, the end of the XIIth Dynasty and the start of the XIIIth is conventionally placed at 1786 BC, this data being arrived at from calculations based on Egypt's "Sothic" calendar. "Following the end of the Twelfth Dynasty in 1786 B.C . the next astronomically determinable anchor-point' in Egyptian history is the ninth year of the reign of King Amenophis I, the second ruler of the Eighteenth Dynasty."  This year is also calculated according to the usual Sothic reckonings, and ...
44. The Bible Myth : The African Origins Of The Jewish People by Gary Greenberg (Book review) [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... i.e ., a starting date of 1991 B.C . for the Twelfth Dynasty and 1576 to 1574 B.C . for the Eighteenth Dynasty. The Genesis chronology provides accurate starting years for every datable dynasty between the First and the Eighteenth, accurate starting dates for the reigns of several important kings, the start of a Sothic Cycle, and year dates for the occurrence of several major political events, such as the Second and Third unification, the foundation of Avaris by the Hyksos, and the defeat of the Hyksos by Thebes." (Pages 62-63) Review Rose 112 The proposed linkage between Genesis and Egypt is quite involved, and I shall only sample ...
45. The Role Of The Nile In Egyptian Chronology [Journals] [SIS Review]
... of Sirius would have moved forward through the entire Egyptian calendar in exactly 1460 Julian (or Alexandrian) years if the heliacal risings of Sirius had advanced exactly one day every four years, with no triennia [9 ]. (The Egyptians may have ignored triennia (many Egyptologists still do) but they did in fact occur and any actual Sothic period would have to be somewhat less than 1460 years. ) In all three of these cases, we would have 365/0 .. . 25 = 1460 - but how does that pertain to the Nile? What Kitchen should be using here is the tropical year, which takes 365/0 .. . ...
46. Ancient Near Eastern Chronology Revised [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... from the Amarna correspondence, there is little danger that archeologists do not recognize a stratum of the Mitanni nation once they see it. Thus, no other nation of antiquity is better suited for archeological cross-references than the Mitanni. The Mitanni got their -15th/ -l4th century date via the Amarna correspondence, which was dated by the pseudo-astronomical scheme of Sothic cycles. This scheme never fared well with astronomers, but it took up to 1985 until mainstream Egyptology abandoned it as well, with no less an authority than the editor of the Lexikon der Ägyptologie taking the lead: "Work on chronology has clearly arrived at a crisis. The reason for this is in part the adoption of dogmatic ...
47. Introduction - Ages in Chaos? [Journals] [SIS Review]
... the Dog Star, Sirius. Every year, Sirius disappears below the horizon for a 70-day period, appearing in the dawn sky just before the Sun (i .e . a heliacal rising) in July, the time of the annual Nile floods. The heliacal rising of Sirius might have marked the start of the New Year in a Sothic calendar. Regardless of whether a Sothic calendar was ever employed, the civil calendar known to have been used by the Egyptians had no leap year, so the civil New Year would slip through the seasons and only coincided with the heliacal rising of Sirius at intervals of 1460 years (on the basis of uniformitarian assumptions). In the ...

... , SISR IV:1 . pp. 2-3) has met with a cool reception in archaeological circles. Mellaart, in an attempt to reconcile the archaeological dates for the Early and Middle Bronze Ages with the tree-ring-calibrated C14 results, had suggested raising the former by up to 200 years. To do so he was prepared to abandon the key Sothic date of 1872 BC for Sesostris III, and reintroduce extra "Dark Ages" into early Hittite and Assyrian history. Antiquity has since published a double rejoinder to Mellaart sharply criticising both his methodology and his conclusions. For all his radiocarbon dates for the Palestinian Early Bronze Age, Mellaart had relied on an article by JOSEPH CALLAWAY and JAMES ...
50. A REVISED CHRONOLOGY FOR THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST [Journals] [SIS Review]
... on unshakable foundations. Our framework of Egyptian history is based on the late summaries of the long lost Egyptian history of Manetho, an Egyptian priest living in the third century BC, and the modern scheme of "Dynasties" is borrowed from these sources, dubious, fragmentary and contradictory as they are. This is ostensibly supported by the "Sothic" dating scheme devised by Egyptologists at the beginning of this century. This scheme is entirely based on the authority of jottings in late Greek manuscripts, and the hypothetical "Sothic" calendar has no foundation in native Egyptian documents. In a paper entitled "Astronomy and Chronology"(4 ), Velikovsky examined the Sothic theory and demonstrated ...
