The Issue with Chronology (History: Fiction or Science? Book 1)

“History: Fiction or Science?” series of 26 books is the most explosive tractate on history ever written proving irrefutably that the timeline of the civilization that takes into account only the irrefutably dated non-contradictory events and artefacts barely exceeds 1000 years!

New Chronology theory is a major breakthrough in world history. It is also called a ‘fringe theory’ just like Darwin’s theory and genetics were at the beginning of the 20th century. The size of this breakthrough is very visible on a Wikipedia page consecrated to mathematician Anatoly Fomenko. Fatwas, condemnations, refutations abound. Actually, PhD etc, etc..simply included a Wiki page written by a crowd of furious mainstream historians in his Kindles. He says his team is ready to repent and retract if a couple of basic academic rules are met. Silence.





This research was actually a byproduct of Russian-American competition in Moon exploration.’The issue with Chronology’ is the first volume in “History: Fiction or Science?”, the fundamental oeuvre that exposes and expounds the numerous inveracities of the traditional version of history.

In “The Issue with Chronology” we are reminded of when the contemporary chronological scale was created and by whom, with the culprits named as the XVI-XVII century clergy that was in charge of all matters historical in that age.
We also learn that the consensual model of history had prominent critics ever since its creation – among them such names as Sir Isaac Newton and Jean Hardouin, chief librarian of Louis XIV, the Sun King of France, and collector of Louvre museum.

The author dissects every historical age and analyses the data from every source imaginable – Roman and Egyptian chronology take a good beating, and it goes rapidly downhill from there. Poggio Bracciolini and Petrarch take the blame for creating the legend of a mythical Classical age that never was. Our perception of history begins to change dramatically even before we’re through with “The Issue with Chronology”.

On one hand, Dr. Fomenko et al call everybody, historians including, to apply Occam’s razor to world history. On the other, the scientists Dr. Fomenko et al are ready to recognize their alleged mistakes of New Chronology theory, to repent, and to retract if and only if:
– radiocarbon dating methods or dendrochronology pass rigorous anonymous ‘black box’ tests;
– verifiable astronomic data refute their results on solar eclipses;
– it is proven irrefutably that Robert Newton (NASA astrophysicist) was wrong to call ‘ancient’ Ptolemy the greatest conman in history in his ‘Crime of Claudius Ptolemy’ ;
