Claims

US research of earth-moon mechanics by late NASA astrophysicist Robert Newton leads mathematicians of MSU to a breakthrough in the chronology of world history. The timeline of world history based on only irrefutably dated events and artifacts shrinks drastically.

Dr. Fomenko’s Claims

  • Chronology is to return to the realm of applied mathematics from the clergy that sequestrated it in the XVI-XVII centuries.
  • Historians and translators often “assign” different dates and locations to different accounts of the same historical events, creating multiple “phantom copies” of these events. Inevitably 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, palaeographical 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 irrefutably dated earlier than the 11th century. Most “ancient” artifacts, monuments, temples, edifices may find other than a consensual explanation.
  • Histories of Ancient Rome, Greece, and Egypt were crafted on agenda 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 XIVth to XVIth 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 Almagest of Claudius Ptolemy, traditionally dated to around AD 150 and considered the cornerstone of classical astronomy, was compiled in the 16th and 17th centuries from astronomical data of the 9th to 16th centuries. “Ancient” Ptolemy served as cover for astronomers of 16-17 th centuries afraid of the Inquisition.
  • 37 complete Egyptian horoscope in Denderah, Esna, and many other temples have unique valid astronomical solutions with dates ranging from AD 1000 and up to as late as AD 1700.
  • The vocabulary (glossary) of Egyptian astronomical symbols once applied to horoscopes from temples allows for 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 probability of the accidental existence of the number of unique solutions of the horoscopes contained in Egyptian zodiacs by application of the same vocabulary (glossary) of symbols is nil.
  • The Book of Revelation, as we know it, contains a horoscope, dated to 25 September – 10 October 1486, was compiled by kabbalist Johannes Reuchlin and included in the first complete edition of the Bible published by Erasmus of Rotterdam in 1515, Geneva.
  • The Apocalypse as seen by Astronomy
  • 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 composition 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 there not enough symbols allowing for 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 30-50 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 Babylonian clay cylinder or tablet of unknown age.  Consequently, the dates of eclipses are attached in a circular manner.
  • 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 centuries. Circulus Vicious.
Poor astronomical data in Babylon – abundant astronomical data in Egypt

The Crime of Claudius Ptolemy Hardcover – September 1, 1977 by Professor Robert R. Newton

  • 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. Most of these comets have not been registered in Europe, consequently, Earth is flat.
  • 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.
  • Russia and Turkey once formed parts of the same “Evil Empire” governed by a double structure of civil and military authorities and the hordes which 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 of Russian and Turkish warlords made by German historians.
  • Official Russian history is a blatant forgery concocted by a host of German scholars brought to Russia to legitimize the usurping Romanov dynasty (1613–1725).
  • After the death of Peter the Great in 1725 new Russian Empire was ruled till the revolution of 1917 by the Holstein-Gottstorp-Romanovs’ dynasty.
  • 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.
