51. The Hyksos Pyramid Builders [Journals] [Velikovskian]
... whom we know from the Mesopotamian sources. Heinsohn has supported these conclusions not only with a wealth of textual and historiographic evidence, but with the much more powerful testimony of stratigraphy. When for example we compare a complete stratigraphy of Syria/Palestine (dated according to Egyptian chronology) with a complete stratigraphy from Mesopotamia (dated according to the ... contemporary."14 The evidence thus tells us very clearly that the entire Middle Kingdom is little more than a textbook creation, and that there is no gap, either stratigraphically or in any other sense, between the last dynasty of the Old Kingdom, the 6th and the first of the New Kingdom, the 18th. This, of ...
52. In Defence of Higher Chronologies [Journals] [SIS Review]
... provide additional confirmation for identifications that have already been made on other grounds but the parallels themselves do not make the case. Heinsohn claims that he does have other grounds: stratigraphy. He claims that no adequate stratigraphical remains have been located for the Median-Persian period in Assyria. However stratigraphy is often deceptive - you cannot always trust what is said ... be the same as Darius the Great, Ammisaduqa would be the same as Artaxerxes III Ochos [9 ] and so on. Heinsohn based these conclusions mainly on archaeological and stratigraphical considerations, which I tend to see as of secondary import. My endorsement of Heinsohn's late dating of the First Babylonian Dynasty resulted from astronomical and calendrical considerations, which ...
53. Heinsohn's Revised Chronology [Journals] [Aeon]
... 1000 to 1500 year difference required by Heinsohn. The general agreement of the dates provided by these various dating techniques provides objective evidence against Heinsohn's chronology. (4 ) Archaeological Stratigraphy Heinsohn claims that his system agrees with archaeological evidence when this is interpreted correctly. But a number of his statements indicate that he does not really understand archaeological methodology or ... the Hellenes and Parthians." (29) And elsewhere he states that the layers from the Akkad period at Tell Brak and other sites in the Khabur region "are stratigraphically far too close to the surface to allow for a 3rd millennium date." (30) However, many very ancient sites (such as the remains of the ...
54. Prehistory and Earth Models [Books]
... record presents a most impressive set of facts. The theory of fossil succession based on these facts is also an impressive one. Fossils are perhaps the most valuable tools of stratigraphy, but they are used without a satisfactory foundation to date' rocks on the basis of the fossil content of rocks; the calibration of this application is very questionable ... fluctuations from year to year provide the basis for matching. Careful study of results, however, has revealed serious errors which today are well recognized by comparison with data from stratigraphic methods. Flint  summarized conclusions of extensive studies that correlations of varve counts may lead to unreliable results for the following reasons: In many sections the variations ...
55. Discussion Comments From the Floor [Journals] [Aeon]
... was a man, and brilliant one. He opened the way to a new era for humanity. His work will survive for that reason, and many others besides. STRATIGRAPHY AS HISTORY SPEAKER: CHARLES GINENTHAL Charles Darwin advanced his theory of gradual evolution based on the assumption that the fossil record known at that time, which was negative to ... strata; therefore, they could not anticipate that such remains would be found lying mixed together pell mell in the same strata. Correspondingly, in Mesopotamia we seem to encounter stratigraphic facts that, at the very least, throw into doubt the established chronology. Dwardu Cardona offers lengthy criticisms of Professor Heinsohn's chronology, though the latter's reconstruction does appear ...
56. Focus [Journals] [SIS Review]
... contemporary with the first two hundred years of the Israelite monarchy. In particular, the paper mentioned the tabulation of simultaneous destructions in the Middle East by CLAUDE SCHAEFFER in his Stratigraphie Comparée... and his confirmation that such catastrophes brought major civilisations to an end; the assignment of the Admonitions of Ipuwer by VAN SETERS and ALBRIGHT to the ... unwarranted conclusions being reached." The paper drew a number of illuminating parallels from more recent history, and concluded that the most trustworthy evidence is generally that derived from the stratigraphical record, which can establish not only sequences within a particular site but also the contemporaneity of levels of occupation (strata) at different sites. The implications for Velikovsky's ...

... before the beginning of the New Kingdom so, according to the established chronology, it could have had no connection with the Exodus . Another problem was the stratigraphy of Palestine, based on the chronology of Egypt, a crucial site being Jericho. In the 1930s, John Garstang found collapsed walls at Jericho which were eventually shown ... he had put forward a plausible scenario in Ages in Chaos . In the SIS Review and elsewhere, John Bimson argued that Velikovsky's Revised Chronology, with associated stratigraphic re-assessments, made the Old Testament more consistent with archaeology than previously. In the revised scheme, the Israelites would have arrived at Jericho around the time the fortified Middle ...

... exoheretic" precisely because he presumed to question irreverently some of the sacred precepts of the secular religion embodied in twentieth-century establishment science....

In the KRONOS position, which follows Velikovsky beyond the 18th Dynasty (see Velikovsky in KRONOS III:3 and IV:3 ), we have the 18th and 19th Dynasties separated ...
