Dating methods as offered by mathematical statistics. Eclipses and zodiacs. (2nd revised, expanded edition)
History: Fiction or Science? is the most explosive tractate on history that was ever written, however, every theory it contains, no matter how unorthodox, is backed by solid scientific data. The book contains 446 graphs and illustrations, list of 1534 sources, copies of ancient manuscripts, and countless facts attesting to the falsity of the chronology used nowadays. The dominating historical discourse was essentially crafted in the XVI century from a rather contradictory jumble of sources such as innumerable copies of ancient Latin and Greek manuscripts whose originals had vanished in the Dark Ages and the allegedly irrefutable proof of eclipses offered by late medieval astronomers, resting upon the power of ecclesial authorities.
