Book Info

Pillars of the Past Volume III is a soft cover book of 624 pages published by The Velikovskian in 2010, and contains a wealth of information gathered on the subject of chronology.

This third volume of the series completes the scientific and technological appraisal of the chronology of the ancient Near East. It also examines Immanuel Velikovsky's catastrophic hypothesis and chronology to show how his thesis fits in with that of the short chronology presented in the previous two volumes. It connects the chronology of Egypt with that of the Hebrews as well as with the Assyrians, Greeks, Mitanni, Old Babylonians, and the civilizations of the Aegean. It correlates the movements of domesticated animals from different regions to and from Egypt to tie these chronologies together. It shows that Magan, Meluhha, and Dilmun can be identified with regions that historians have been unable to place, and it examines how the Sea Peoples, the Sealand people, and the Second Sealand Dynasty are all related directly to the Greeks. It further examines the climate changes and catastrophes Velikovsky presented that correlate with the short chronologies of Gunnar Heinsohn, Lynn E. Rose, and Emmet J. Sweeney.

Importantly, it examines biblical history as it fits into the short chronology based on astronomical evidence. A wealth of linguistic and alphabetic materials shows and allows us to understand that the forensic historical evidence makes the history of the Hebrews valid for the divided monarchy down to Persian and Hellenistic times. In this way, the sojourn of Israel in Egypt is shown to be, as some have suggested, the Hyksos period. The Exodus is outlined in such a way that it explains why the civilization in Palestine developed largely around and after the Exodus. All this and a great deal more is presented in this culminating volume of Near Eastern Chronology. Beyond this, other revisionist historians' chronologies are examined and their inadequacies exposed. The "Last Words" conclusion shows how incapable historians and archaeologists are of accepting scientific facts that deny all they have presented regarding the established chronology.
