It differs from the first in terms of per- taining to a different epoch. The evidence is misused for making erroneous and semi-correct con- clusions" (quoted in , page 17). Nevertheless, it is immediately ac- knowledged that "as to what concerns the identity of the patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and lacob, one can just reiterate that the information obtained as a re- sult of the most fruitful excavations in Syria and Me- sopotamia was extremely meagre, or simply nonex- istent" (, , page 77).
Let us call it the second falsification of the same variety. Unfortunately, many of the works that can be understood by the av- erage reader have been written with excessive zeal and desire to prove the Bible correct. The Scaligerian history insists that all the events concerning the Biblical patriarchs occurred precisely and exclusively on the territory of the modern Meso- potamia and Syria.
However, humans, includ- ing specialists, fail to recognize the difference be- tween the two. And finally a "solution" is reached: the southern part of the Dead Sea appears to conceal some debris resembling tree trunks under a 400 metre layer of very salty water of poor transparency (  , page 86).
Dating methods as offered by mathematical statistics. The former kind does not affect the general character of evolu- tion; the latter one does. However, the search is still con- ducted in Mesopotamia with great effort and no re- sults whatsoever.
Mediaeval Christianity and its reflection in the Scaligerian "pagan antiquity" 436 6.2. Gesenius wrote that "it was easily understood how imperfect and unclear such writing method had been" (quoted in ). They had no grammatical rules to follow; the Hebraic that they wrote in often allowed for verbal constructions that were impossible in the ancient language" (quoted in , page 156). The result of this overzeal- ous protection had been the immanetization of the distortions that had been made equal to the original text in authority." (Text given by , page 157.) "The common opinion used to be that the vowels were introduced to the Hebraic text by Ezra in the V century b.c...
Strange parallels in the Scaligerian history of religions 436 6.1. Many consonant combinations may be vocalized in dozens of ways (  ). Curtis also noted that "even for priests the meaning of the scriptures remained extremely doubt- ful and could only be understood with the aid of the tradition and its authority" (quoted in, p. Robertson Smith adds that "the scholars had no other guide but the actual text, that was often ambiguous, and oral tradition.
Evolutionary process discerns between two kinds of events - preliminal and superliminal. It seems natural to search for these cities in some area that does have volcanoes.
Fomenko Chronology 2 The dynastic parallelism method. Over the course of time, the overwhelming majority of events are wiped away into oblivion without leaving the mer- est trace. The people's attitude to the past begins to alter as past events gradually drift into an altogether dif- ferent observational and interpretational context. But there are no volcanoes in this area" ( , page 86).
The history of the mediaeval Athens is supposed to be obscured by darkness up until the XVI century 415 5.2. The history of Greek and Athenian archaeology is relatively short 425 5.4. Ancient Egyptian texts also contained nothing but consonants. "It is true that if we take a Hebraic Bible or a man- uscript nowadays, we shall find a skeleton of conso- nants filled with dots and other signs that are sup- posed to refer to the missing vowels. The books had been written in consonants exclusively, and filled with vowels by the readers to the best of their ability and in accordance with the apparent demands of com- mon sense and oral tradition." (, page 155) Imagine how precise the kind of writing that con- CHAPTER 1 sisted of nothing but consonants would be today, when the combination BLD, for instance, could mean blood, bled, bold, build, boiled, bald, etc.; RVR could stand for river, rover, or raver, etc. Iohannes Kepler Be wary of mathematiciens, particularly when they speak the truth. As centuries pass by, the stream of disinformation is fed by various sources and trib- utaries, which, in their multitude, produce the effect of impartial falsification of historical events. Jordan Tabov (The Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Institute of Mathematics, Sofia, Bulgaria), Y. Are we conducting our search for the Biblical Promised Land in the correct place? Copyrighled material Who controls the past controls the future. George Orwell Scaliger seduced me; chronological studies, as I see, terrify me. Even if we are to suppose that all those who partake in the creation of historical records see veracity as their mission, the result of their collective efforts is often the rendition of their own subjective views on history as opposed to what happened in reality. As it was noted above, from the archaeological point of view the en- tire Scaligerian interpretation of the conquest of Ca- naan by loshua, the son of Nun, becomes suspended in thin air (, [I486]). formation and adding some of our own narrative in order to produce wholesome and coherent textual material. The archaeologist Albright, an avid supporter of the Scaligerian interpretation of the Bible, has never- theless got to agree with the fact that "the previous concept of the Exodus to Haran from the Chaldaean Ur found no archaeological evidence except for the ac- tual city" (quoted in , page 84). Nosovskiy Chronology 3 Astronomical methods as applied to chronology. The mnemonic means available back then were less than meagre, which automati- cally diminished the arsenal of the hypothetical fal- sifiers. It is common knowledge that historical events become immanetized in human language - and a statement uttered is a lie, as the old saying goes. What we end up doing is raking the vastness of history for tiny morsels of in- xvi I history: fiction or science? In this case one may wonder yet again about the possibility of Biblical events having taken place in a different country - not necessarily bound to the territory of modern Egypt.
