Fomenko’s New Chronology

Advertisements

Introduction

Fomenko’s New Chronology is a highly controversial theory that places the dawn of human civilization about 1200 years before present. It is largely based upon dates allegedly obtained through textual analysis and astronomical calculation.

Fomenko’s New Chronology was one of the main reasons that I created Ctruth. From the outset, I’ve wanted to know which parts of Fomenko’s New Chronology are valid and which parts are not. While I’ve come a long way in determining the extent of its validity, I’m still working on a comprehensive analysis of it and I encourage people who are interested in the sciences and humanities (wetenschap) to join in as well. I have some instructions here on how to help.

Fomenko’s New Chronology is almost 50 years in the making. My serious studies into it really began when I made this website on January 2nd, 2019. Since then, my studies into Fomenko’s New Chronology have become increasingly more critical and rigorous than when I first began.

I do not believe in Fomenko’s New Chronology. My thoughts on what’s legit and not legit are spelled out in my examination articles.

Anatoly Fomenko (1945-present) began his research on chronology in 1973, was publishing it in scientific magazines in the 1980’s, and began publishing it in books in the 1990’s. The original analysis was conducted on 15 chronological tables and 228 fundamental primary sources which covered all of the basic events of world history between 4000 BC and 1800 AD. His 7 volume series for which he is known in the English speaking world came out in the early 2000s.

The popular notion is that human civilization dawned maybe 6-10 thousand years ago. Fomenko’s New Chronology condenses this down to 1200 years ago by arguing the events of civilization were artificially placed further back in time by shifts of roughly 333 years, 1053 years, and 1778 years.[1, p.xiii] The 3 shifts have also been listed by Fomenko as roughly 330, 1050, and 1800 years.[2] These shifts are illustrated in Fomenko’s Global Chronological Diagram (GCD).[3, p.8]

“Of course, the research described here cannot claim to establish any final conclusions, especially since we have used purely mathematical methods to analyze what is really very complicated, multifaceted and sometimes subjectively embellished material from the historical chronicles. Without doubt, a complete treatment of the problem requires a combination of different methods, including those of pure history, archaeology, philology, physics, chemistry, and, finally, mathematics…”
– A. T. Fomenko (1994)[3, p.xiii]

“I cannot at all agree with the hypothesis of Morozov, according to which most literary works of antiquity are fabrications of the Apocrypha of the Renaissance, which would mean that what we know today as ancient history is actually the result of premeditated falsification. … My standpoint is different, namely that, due to the results of the application of the new dating methods, almost all surviving ancient documents (of antiquity or the Middle Ages) are authentic and written for the purpose of perpetuating real events rather than leading future historians astray.”
– A. T. Fomenko (1994)[3, p.196]
