61. Heinsohn's Ancient "History" [Aeon Journal $]
... and Darius? Heinsohn's stated reasons for identifying the two kings can be summarized as follows: (1) both were intimately associated with the Mardian tribe; (2) both were great lawgivers; (3) both worshipped similar deities; and (4) comparative stratigraphy. We will examine each of these points in turn. Cyrus "The Mardian" In various publications going back to 1986, Heinsohn has sought to draw a parallel between Hammurabi's tribe-- the Martu (or Amorites)-- and the Persians. On ... particular city to the very foundations before constructing their own city? Note further that it is not the occasional presence of Old Babylonian remains beneath Hellenistic strata that would prove Heinsohn's case; rather it would be necessary to document that such a relationship consistently prevails at various different stratigraphical sites. If Persian strata were to be found immediately beneath the Hellenistic strata accompanied by the presence of Old Babylonian or other intermediate strata below the Persian, then Heinsohn's thesis would be disproved immediately. It is this latter situation which typically prevails, needless to say ...

... they may be unfamiliar with. My own position, as mentioned above, is that the Israelite Exodus from Egypt and the conquest of Canaan occurred at the end of the Early Bronze Age, in the era known as Early Bronze IV or Middle Bronze 1A in the stratigraphical record. To the best of my knowledge, Donovan Courville was the first researcher to espouse the theories that the Exodus took place at the end of the Early Bronze Age and that the Israelite United Kingdom of David and Solomon was the Hyksos Empire of the High ... issue; as the reader will see, others have already started to take up that challenge. What Etzion does achieve is to produce a work that, in its depth, scope, command of sources and documentation, is likely to prove as authoritative as Claude Schauffer's Stratigraphie Comparée, (10) a book that influenced Velikovsky greatly. Etzion produces a coherent model fitting the biblical historical record to the archeological strata over more than 2,000 years, starting with the Chalcolithic period, which he identifies with the time of the patriarch ...

... University and is currently studying for a Diploma in Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, London. He is a Council member of the Society and convener of its Ancient History Study Group. The extensive work of the eminent French archaeologist Claude Schaeffer, correlating the chronology and stratigraphy of Bronze Age sites in the Near East, led him to conclude that many of the phases of Bronze Age civilisation were ended by catastrophes "not caused by the action of man". This paper summarises Schaeffer's conclusions and their implications for both Worlds in Collision ... 1929 and the outbreak of World War II is contained in a series of publications known as Ugaritica [1. However, during the enforced break in field work in the Near East caused by the war, Schaeffer wrote a major, albeit sadly neglected, work entitled Stratigraphie comparée et chronologie de l'Asie occidentale {III e et II e millenaires) [2. This compared the stratigraphy of numerous Bronze Age sites in the Near East and sought to construct a comparative chronology for them. In doing so, he reached what most archaeologists ...

64. Nemesis for Evolutionary Gradualism? [SIS C&C Review $]
... Jack Sepkoski of the Department of Geophysical Sciences, University of Chicago, has compiled a record of the appearance and extinction of some 3300 families of marine animals, of which about 2400 are extinct, assigning each event to within the confines of one of the internationally agreed stratigraphical stages [47-49. Using this compilation, Sepkoski and his colleague, David Raup, saw that five extinction events, in the Late Ordovician (Ashgillian stratigraphical stage), Devonian (Frasnian), Permian (Dzhulfian), Triassic (Norian, about 220 Myr ... of extraterrestrial catastrophism is Tony Hallam, Professor of Geology at the University of Birmingham. Hallam is not interested in defending outmoded gradualism. He agrees with Stephen Jay Gould [2, 4 that 'catastrophists such as Cuvier were the true empiricists of the day, interpreting the stratigraphic record as it appeared, for instance in the abruptly changing succession of fossil faunas, and that Lyell introduced confusion into the argument' [102. He further agrees that the actualistic principle of uniformitarianism, that 'the present is the key to the past', ...

... (the strata that contain coal seams). Attention was drawn to these by Professor Derek Ager, Head of the Department of Geology, University College, Swansea, and the champion of "neo-catastrophism" in geology, in his seminal work, The Nature of the Stratigraphical Record (Macmillan 1973, reviewed by Professor Jan Terasmae in SISR I:4). "... we do from time to time find evidence, in all parts of the stratigraphic column, of very rapid and very spasmodic deposition in the most harmless ... sediments. In the late Carboniferous Coal Measures of Lancashire, a fossil tree has been found, 38 feet high and still standing in its living position. Sedimentation must therefore have been fast enough to bury the tree and solidify before the tree had time to rot." (p. 41) Surprising implications for the study of coal formation have come from the application of some radiometric dating techniques. The main period of coal deposition (Upper Carboniferous /Pennsylvanian) is thought to have ended 280 million years ago. Yet fossilised wood ...

... record, as a whole, is so incomplete that fossil patterns are meaningless artefacts of episodic sedimentation." D.E. Schindel, Curator of Invertebrate Fossils in the Peabody Museum, has scrutinized seven recent microstratigraphical studies, evaluating them for temporal scope, microstratigraphical acuity, and stratigraphical completeness. His first and most important conclusion is that a sort of Uncertainty Principle prevails such that "a study can provide fine sampling resolution, encompass long spans of geological time, or contain a complete record of the time span, but not all three. ... creation-evolution tempest, evolutionists seem to infer that a lot of missing links have been found. Some scientists, however, are facing up to the fact that many gaps in the fossil record still exist after a century of Darwinism.

More recently, however, new sites have been discovered BENEATH the ground, notably at tell ed-Daba and its environs. The stratigraphy at this locality has since caused some confusion, and some difference of opinions, among Egyptologists. The final verdict is not yet in.

... to the bedding planes over the top of the layers of younger rock, sometimes for hundreds of miles. So numerous are these instances of inverted strata that a new branch of geology called Thin-Skinned Tectonics is arising to handle them. The present article deals with the complex stratigraphy in the Western Arbuckle Mountains in southern Oklahoma. Here are located many examples of old-on-young rock as well as completely inverted stratigraphic members. Much at-tention is paid to the evidence of sliding between beds (breccia, small overfolds, etc.). Some excellent photos ... these contact planes are presented. (Phillips, Eric H.; "Gravity Slide Thrusting and Folded Faults in Western Arbuckle Mountains and Vicinity, Southern Oklahoma," American Association of Petroleum Geologists, Bulletin, 67:1363, 1983.) Comment. Some extensive thrust faults do not show as much evidence of horizontal sliding as those in the Western Arbuckles. Scientific creationists use such examples as evidence that the geological time scale, as determined by the fossil contents of the rocks, is all mixed up. From Science Frontiers # ...

... datable age horizons. Systematic sampling of these layers at a well-known meteorite collection site (the Allan Hills Main Icefield) has revealed a band consisting of unusually dark and rounded particles, many of which are spheroidal. This debris layer (BIT-58) extends parallel to the stratigraphy of the ice established from the tephra bands, and thus apparently marks a single depositional event. Several kilograms of ice from two sites along this band were subsequently collected and melted, yielding a few grams of sediment for further study." Microscopic examination and microprobe ...
