Refutation of the New Chronology in Wikipedia

“History is a pack of lies about events that never happened told by people who weren’t there.” – George Santayana, American philosopher (1863-1952)

New Chronology theory developed by Dr. Prof. Fomenko et al following the input of NASA astrophysicist Dr. Robert R. Newton reduces the timeline of human civilization to 1000 years taking into account only irrefutably dated events.

Moderators-historians throw out the baby toolbox of the New Chronology mathematical, statistical and logical methods together with the sacro sacred Neutral Point of View (NPoV) rule of Wikipedia.

To do just that they have produced a verbose pseudo-refutation page in Wikipedia where a group (gang) of self-proclaimed “scientists”, i.e.  historians of no relation to the exact sciences labels New Chronology theory based on exact sciences as pseudo-scientific (sic!).

As they presume to own history and historiography lock, stock and barrel they condemn and label New Chronology theory as pseudo-historic. This is close enough as New Chronology denies the very definition of history as a science, which is considered a Humanity, an Art serving an agenda. Period.

The gang of moderators-historians refutes in a circular manner Fomenko on account of:

Statistical correlation of texts;

Statistical correlation of dynasties;

Astronomical evidence;

Rejection of common dating methods;

Convergence of methods in archaeological dating;

Misuse of historical sources and forced pattern matching;

Selectivity in reference to astronomical phenomena;

Magnitude and consistency of conspiracy theory;

Thereby the gang of moderators-historians violates the basic NPoV rules of Wikipedia on multiple accounts:

  • The gang lists only sources contrary to the theory of the New Chronology, but deletes sources supporting it;
  • The gang lists all conferences of historians where the New Chronology was  refuted and condemned but does let list the numerous scientific conferences where the  New Chronology was discussed by mathematicians and statisticians;
  • The gang of moderators lists historians that refute the New Chronology, but refuse to list the scientists that validate or support it, for example, Sir Isaac Newton;
  • The gang of moderators-historians brazenly distorts the conclusions of scientists that may favor the theory of New Chronology;

Example: moderators-historians present  the statement about ‘tidal forces’ of late R.R Newton, chief astrophysicist of NASA who discovered index D” irregularity (one that actually started in 1973 the research of chronology by Dr. Fomenko et al) as refutation of New Chronology  in spite of Newton’s conclusion that there is no valid theory of ‘tidal forces’ to explain D” given in the very article they reference this ‘refutation’ to.

Better yet, moderators-historians claim Dr. Stephenson has destroyed the basis of New Chronology thanks to the data of eclipses from Babylonian clay tablets and antediluvian Chinese records.  The ‘destruction’ by Dr. Stephenson is fallacious per se as there is no vocabulary of Babylonian astronomical symbols produced that can be applied to clay tablets for extraction directly from of unique dates of eclipses allegedly written on them.

Astronomical data therein contained is not sufficient for irrefutable non-circular dating. Either there are not enough symbols allowing for unique astronomical interpretation, or 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.

An eclipse can easily be found for each allegedly ancient event mentioned in clay cylinder or tablet the age of which is alleged also.  Consequently, the dates of eclipses are attached to tablet in a circular manner. On the contrary Zodiacs from Egyptian Temples contain abundant astrological, i.e. astronomical information that is sufficient for non-circular unique dating. See Contents of Part 2, vol.III.

Dr. Stephenson argues: ancient dates of Babilon eclipses coincide with dates of Babilon eclipses described in Ptolemy’s Almagest, but forgets to mention that Almagest composed in XVI cy describes events of X-XVI cies. BTW Dr R.R.Newton called Ptolemy “the most successful fraud in the history of science. “Circulus Vicious.

Poor astronomical data in Babylon – abundant astronomical data in Egypt

Wiki moderators-historians gang presents only arguments of the critics against conclusions of  Dr. Fomenko on Almagest star catalog and refuse to mention the fact that all arguments of some Russian and Western astronomers were completely refuted by him on a high academic level. See Contents of Part 1, vol.III.

Dr Yuri Knorozov who was the first to decipher in 1952  Maya script and was badly mauled for over 20 years for that. Looks we live the same story again. Dèja vue?

A paradigm shift is going on step by step: complacency and/or marginalization, ridicule, criticism, acceptance.

Has history been tampered with?
