- it gives a coherent explanation of what we already know;
- it is consistent: independent lines of inquiry all lead to the same conclusion;
- the predictions it makes are confirmed empirically.
New Chronology goes by the following basic axioms:
- Chronology is the basis of history;
- Human evolution has always been linear, gradual and irreversible;
- The “cyclic” nature of human civilization is a myth, likewise, all the gaps, duplicates, “dark ages” and “renaissances” that we know from consensual history are fantasy and hoax;
- The accumulation of geographical knowledge as reflected in cartography is a gradual and irreversible process;
- The closer in time is a given manuscript to the events described the fewer distortions it contains;
- There is no “useless” information in authentic ancient sources.
Saint Augustine was quite prescient when he said:
“Be wary of mathematicians, particularly when they speak the truth.”
Specific Claims of the New Chronology:
- Historians and translators often “assign” different dates and locations to different accounts of the same historical events, creating multiple “phantom copies” of these events. These “phantom copies” are often misdated by centuries or even millennia and end up incorporated into the conventional chronology.
- This chronology was largely manufactured by Kabbalist Joseph Justus Scaliger in Opus Novum de emendatione temporum (1583) and Thesaurum temporum (1606) and represents a vast array of dates produced without any justification whatsoever, containing the repeating sequences of dates with shifts equal to multiples of the major Kabbalistic numbers 333 and 360. The Jesuit Dionysius Petavius completed this chronology in De Doctrina Temporum, 1627 (v.1) and 1632 (v.2)
- Archaeological dating, dendrochronological dating, paleographical dating, numismatic dating, carbon dating, and other methods of dating of ancient sources and artifacts known today are erroneous, non-exact, or dependent on traditional chronology.
- No single document in existence can be reliably dated earlier than the 11th century. History is based on copies of copies from copies, and on references from, to, about. Most “ancient” artifacts may find other than the consensual explanation.
- Histories of Ancient Rome, Greece, and Egypt were crafted during the Renaissance by humanists and clergy – mostly on the basis of documents of their own making.
- The Old Testament represents a rendition of events of the 14th to 16th centuries AD, in Europe and Byzantium, containing “prophecies” about “future” events related in the New Testament, a rendition of events of AD 1152 to 1185.
- The history of religions runs as follows: the pre-Christian period (before the 11th century and the birth of Jesus), Bacchic Christianity (11th and 12th centuries, before and after the life of Jesus), Christianity (12th to 16th centuries) and its subsequent mutations into Orthodox Christianity, Catholicism, Judaism, and Islam.
- The Almagest of Claudius Ptolemy, traditionally dated to around AD 150 and considered the cornerstone of classical astronomy, was compiled in 16th and 17th centuries from astronomical data of the 9th to 16th centuries.
- 37 complete Egyptian horoscopes found in Dendera, Esna, and other temples have unique valid astronomical solutions with dates ranging from AD 1000 and up to as late as AD 1700.
The vocabulary of Egyptian astronomical symbols once applied to horoscopes from temples allows for the extraction of unique dates of eclipses. Astronomical data therein contained is sufficient for unique dating. There are symbols allowing for astronomical interpretation and the symbols do not change from one temple horoscope to another. The horoscopes from temples contain data about eclipses visible in Egypt that their exact pinpointing on the time axis.
- The Book of Revelation, as we know it, contains a horoscope, dated to 25 September – 10 October 1486, compiled by Kabbalist Johannes Reuchlin.
The inability of the latter-day commentators to comprehend the astronomical symbolism of the Apocalypse is directly resulting from the loss of knowledge about the correct chronology and the distortions introduced by historians of the XVI-XVIII century. Another possibility is that there was an unspoken general taboo on what concerned a subject quite as dangerous, which resulted in the misdating of the Apocalypse. One way or another, the understanding of the astronomical descriptions that the Apocalypse contains got lost at some point. The Apocalypse had lost its distinctive astronomical hue in the eyes of the readers. However, its “astronomical component” is not simply exceptionally important – it alone suffices for the dating of the book itself.
- The horoscopes found in Sumerian/Babylonian tablets do not contain sufficient astronomical data; consequently, they have solutions every 30–50 years on the time axis and are therefore useless for purposes of dating.
The vocabulary of Babylonian astronomical symbols once applied to clay tablets don’t allow for the extraction of unique dates of eclipses. Astronomical data therein contained is not sufficient for unique dating. Either they’re not enough symbols allowing for astronomical interpretation of the symbols change from one clay tablet to another. The clay tablets contain data about eclipses visible in Babylon that could have taken place every 30-40 years, therefore don’t allow their exact pinpointing on the time axis.
The cuneiform texts (AKA translations) with alleged descriptions of ancient events do not contain irrefutable astronomical information allowing precise pinpointing of these events on the time axis. Archeoastronomy takes the dates of events from Scaliger-Petavius chronological tables, finds eclipses with matching dates, and concludes that they confirm the Babylonian events. Circulus vicious.
- The Chinese tables of eclipses are useless for dating, as they contain too many eclipses that did not take place astronomically. Chinese tables of comets, even if true, cannot be used for dating.
- Chinese eclipse observations can neither confirm nor refute any chronology of China at all, be it veracious or erroneous.
- All major inventions like powder and guns, paper, and print occurred in Europe in the period between the 10th and the 16th centuries.
- Ancient Roman and Greek statues, showing perfect command of the human anatomy, are fakes crafted in the Renaissance when artists attained such command for the first time.
- There was no such thing as the Tartar and Mongol invasion followed by over two centuries of yoke and slavery, because the so-called “Tartars and Mongols” were the actual ancestors of the modern Russians, living in a bilingual state with Turkic spoken as freely as Russian. So, Russia and Turkey once formed parts of the same Empire.
- This “Evil” Empire was governed by a double structure of civil and military authorities and the hordes were actually professional armies with a tradition of lifelong conscription (the recruitment being the so-called “blood tax”). The Mongol “invasions” were punitive operations against the regions of the empire that attempted tax evasion. Tamerlane was a compilation by German historians of Russian and Turkish warlords.
- Official Russian history is a blatant forgery concocted by a host of German scholars brought to Russia to legitimize the usurping Romanov dynasty (1613–1917).
- Moscow was founded as late as the mid-14th century. The battle of Kulikovo took place in Moscow.
- The Czar Ivan the Terrible represents a collation of no fewer than four rulers, representing two rival dynasties: the legitimate Godunov rulers and the ambitious Romanov upstarts.
- English history of AD 640–1040 and Byzantine history of AD 378–830 are reflections of the same late-medieval original.
