Fomenko - Zodiacs - Timeline Of Egypt Cut In Stone (2005)
Authors Anatoly T. Fomenko, Tatiana N. Fomenko, Wieslaw Z. Krawcewic and Gleb V. Nosovskij have written this monumental book Zodiacs - Timeline of Egypt Cut in Stone (2005) where these mathematicians illustrate how modern applied mathematics can be used to investigate the chronology of ancient events and either confirm or deny their validity - a great tool for discovering when and how history has been rewritten or even erased. We are all aware that history can not be considered as an area of knowledge where the portrayed facts are scientifically supported. It was always an arena for political or nationalistic manipulations and smaller or larger falsification. Ancient history is not an exception and in fact its problems are more serious than one could suspect. Authors' results challenge the correctness of the ancient chronology supported by the overwhelming opinion of reputable experts in history. It is not their intention to create a sensation or to discredit anybody but to attract more attention to a serious scientific problem. They are aware that it was always extremely hard to introduce principally new ideas in any field of knowledge. There are numerous examples in physics, mathematics, biology, medicine and other sciences, when the new theories were only accepted after long years of absolute rejection by almost all experts. Nevertheless, every area of science had its turning points when, with hesitation and lots of pain, old and well established knowledge was rejected to accept new concepts. Such reversals happened before in astronomy, mechanics, chemistry, physics and even in mathematics. There were also reversals in economics and psychology as well. Surprisingly, the historical chronology throughout the last four centuries remains intact. There was no significant improvement of the chronology in spite of the computer technology and modern methods of data analysis. Nowadays, more and more mathematics is used in social areas. Not surprisingly, mathematics is also trying to make its contribution in areas that seem to be quite distant from it. Historical chronology, when it was created in the 17th century was considered as a part of mathematics. Later, it was incorporated as a part of history, which is a pure social science not relying on the natural sciences methodology. Without solid scientific tools, historians are not able to solve principal problems existing in the chronology. In this amazing book, it is shown that there are serious problems in a very foundation of the conventional chronology. How anybody can be sure that historical events we learned about in school, from books or even movies, really took place? Maybe some of them are simply fairy tales or fantasies that are considered now to be historical facts. However, a prevailing opinion is that there is no reason to worry about the accuracy of the conventional chronology. Historians claim that their work provides us with clear and comprehensive explanations of every historical epoch and that strictly scientific methods, for example the carbon-14 dating and dendrochronology support it. However, there are serious problems with usage of physical methods to support the conventional chronology. The astronomical dating, using contemporary scientific theories, remains in fact the only method that can produce reliable precise dates for ancient events. In particular, remains of many old Egyptian zodiacs containing horoscopes are important material for such dating. Analysis of some of these horoscopes was already attempted in the 18th and 19th centuries but did not lead to any solid date. Recently it was discovered that Egyptian zodiacs contain much more astronomical information that it was previously believed. This gave us an opportunity to establish dozens of unique dates from the ancient Egyptian history. It appears that it is possible to determine with very high confidence the exact dates represented on the Egyptian zodiacs. In this book we have analyzed several accessible to us old Egyptian zodiacs containing valid astronomical data (horoscopes). These zodiacs were created in form of reliefs, carvings in stone or paintings. The purpose of this book is to astronomically date all these zodiacs. The obtained dates appear to be much later than it is suggested in the conventional chronology of Egypt. This book doesn't discuss how serious are the implications of these new dates on the ancient history. The only objective is to present a serious scientific evidence without making any a priori assumption of its correctness or incorrectness. The research is independent of the restrictions imposed by the conventional chronology. The authors being mathematicians, they simply solve the puzzle of ancient Egyptian zodiacs, where the hidden dates were encoded inside the horoscopes. They've found these dates and let them speak for themselves. An incredible story unfolds. 400 pages, many pictures. A must read for everyone.
From the back cover:
It is commonly believed that 3000 years of Ancient Egyptian history ended around the year 500 A.D. leaving behind phenomenal monuments, temples and tombs. But, can we trust Egyptian chronology? "Mysteries of Egyptian Zodiacs" will undermine your beliefs in the conventional history of Egypt, by providing you with strong scientific proof that ancient Egyptian temples and tombs were created after the year 1000 A.D. This book is not based on historical speculations, but it is a comprehensive scientific analysis of the Egyptian zodiacs - the astronomical calendars holding the real dates of Ancient Egypt. Authors of this book are mathematicians who scrupulously investigated the existing astronomical evidence and used special computer programs to calculate the dates encoded in the Egyptian zodiacs. The book explains in every detail how to read the astronomical data shown on the Egyptian zodiacs, and provides the reader with all the necessary tools to conduct independent research into this area of astronomical dating. It was extremely hard to introduce principally new ideas in any field of knowledge. The authors of this book show that there are serious problems in the very foundation of the conventional chronology. This exciting topic will make readers shake and crave for more.
