Chronology & Catastrophism Review 1987 Issue (Volume IX)


Peter Warlow: Return to the Tippe Top, Part I 2

Peter Warlow replies to his critics with special reference to the evidence from the “astronomical” ceiling of Senmut, architect to Hatshepsut. This article forms the basis of the Talk Peter gave to the SIS AGM in November 1987, and includes an extended preview of his long-awaited response to Victor Slabinski.


Carl Olof Jonsson:
The Foundations of the Assyro-Babylonian Chronology 14

Examining the nature of the evidence underpinning the chronologies of the Neo-Assyrian and Neo-Babylonian period, this article is a major challenge to those who would “revise” the later chronology of Mesopotamia.


Earl R. Milton:
Physics, Astronomy and Chronology.
Part I: Radiometric Chronometries 24

A re-examination and a challenge to the currently accepted radiometric dating methods, with special reference to Uranium-Lead and Carbon-14 methods, Earl Milton provides theoretical reasons why these methods may be unsound. (Based on Talk given to SIS Meeting in 1982)


Moe M. Mandelkehr:
An Integrated Model for an Earthwide Event at 2300 BC,
Part II: Climatology 34

The second of his series of articles detailing the evidence for a major disruptive event at around 2300 BC, Moe Mandelkehr presents here very considerable climatological evidence to the effect that world climate altered dramatically at that time.


Trevor Palmer: The Cautious Revolutionary 34

A portrait of the colourful Stephen J. Gould: Dr Palmer shows how this famous palaeontologist is really a catastrophist at heart.
