Newton also was unhappy with the chronology compiled in the seventeen century by Scalliger. Fomenco says point blank that the chronology. Fomenko’s New Chronology asserts that most of recorded history was composed by Church mandate, for the.

Almost everything you thought you knew about history is wrong.
And Jesus lived and died in the 12th century A. While the finer points of the Fomenko theory are as convoluted and confusing as you might expect, the guiding principle is that recorded history before the 11thth centuries is generally unreliable for various reasons.

Virtually all extant documents from the period before that time, Fomenko writes, are untrustworthy, due to a number of factors: Wikimedia Commons Joseph Scaliger. Along these lines, Fomenko specifically focuses on the writings of 16th-century French Christian scholar Joseph Scaliger. For example, Fomenko believes that most Eurasian history between the third and 11th centuries A. A similar thing happened with the Bible, Fomenko claims. He writes that the Bible we know today is largely built on 11thth-century fabrications and revisions to older texts and that these fabrications and revisions actually reflect events that were happening in the 11thth centuries.
So, Fomenko theorizes that the Babylonian captivity described in the Bible in which in the Jews of the Kingdom of Judah were invaded by Babylon and held captive there for 70 years in the sixth century B.
Why exactly Fomenko argues all of this and how he attempts to prove these claims is another matter entirely. Apart from his creation of the New Chronology, Fomenko is a notable mathematician who has earned his doctorate, taught at Moscow State Lomonosov University, become a member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, won a State Prize of the Russian Federation for mathematics, and published some works.
When he began digging into such data himself, he concluded that many lunar eclipses and other celestial events could not have occurred when historians said they did and thus major historical lynchpins could be off by hundreds of years.
His calculations, which have since been criticized by other writers, showed that certain celestial events that were said to have occurred in the time of Jesus had to have actually occurred some 1, years later. Wikimedia Commons Isaac Newton. Fomenko picked up these ideas, added in a host chronoology dubious mathematical calculations related to the astronomical record, and so the New Chronology was born.
New Chronology (Fomenko)
In the decades since, Fomenko has comenko many volumes on the subject, although his only visibility outside of Russia is largely confined to the corners of the internet that feed on fringe theories. History — and this becomes truer and truer the further back you go — is always a reconstruction to some extent.
The issue of just how faithfully documented history reflects real events is very complex and requires a special study. After this look at Anatoly Fomenko and the New Chronology, read up on other bizarre fringe theories including the Paul is dead rumor popular among some Beatles fans as well as the chronolgoy that the moon landing was faked.
According to Anatoly Fomenko’s New Chronology, history as we know it was fabricated by Christian scholars. Discover why he believes it and why he’s not percent crazy.
