Item description for History: Fiction or Science? Astronomical methods as applied to chronology. Ptolemy's Almagest. Chronology III by Anatoly T. Fomenko, Tatiana N. Fomenko, Vladimir V. Kalashnikov & Gleb V. Nosovskiy...
Dr Prof Anatoly Fomenko and team dissect Almagest of ancient Ptolemy compiled allegedly in 150 a.d. and considered to be the corner stone of classical history. Their report states: Almagest was compiled in XVI-XVII cy from astronomical data of IX-XVI cy. As the King of astronomers Ptolemy is proven to be a medieval phantom, therefore standing aquitted of the crime he was accused by the late American astrophycist Robert Newton. Allegedly ancient Egyptian horoscopes painted in Pharaohs tombs of the Valley of Kings or cut in stone in Dendera and Esna for centuries considered impenetrable are decoded at last! All dates contained therein turn out definitely medieval and pertain to the XI cy a.d. the earliest. Well, how old is 'ancient' Egypt actually? Discover highly interesting angles, chunky facts and updates to the biographies of the famous medieval astronomers Tycho Brahe and Copernicus. Reading this book resembles a test flight to the distant past returning with a conclusion: the past is eventually both drastically closer and dramatically different from one taught in school. Fasten your seatbelts, please. The publishers will pay a 10,000 dollars USA in cash to the first person who will not only declare but prove consistently, with adequate methods and in sufficient detail on the same or better academic level that the New Chronology theory of Full member of the Russian Academy of Science Dr Prof Anatoly T. Fomenko, Head of the Chair of the Differential Geometry of MSU and his team is wrong in their dating of Almagest.

A must read Jan 9, 2008
This book is amazing! I am neither a mathmatician, historian, or astronomer, but found it easy to understand and highly informative. Even the most complicated parts are explained very well. The most important thing is make sure you keep an open mind and take the book for what it is, the result of years of research based on independant dating methods. I highly recommend this book!
Sensational discovery - astronomic research proves that Apocalypse - Book of Revelation to Apostle John was written as late as 1486!
Of all the books in the Bible, none has fired our imagination more than Apocalypse - the Book of Revelation to John.
On the Greek isle of Patmos, Apostle John has visions of angels, beasts, the Throne of God, surrounded by the rainbow in the sea of glass, Lamb who turns into the conqueror on the white horse, dragons etc..etc
These verbal images do resemble those from the medieval astronomical and astrological maps. Look at the ancient sky map painted by great Albrecht Durer. Astrology was an essential part of life in 14th 16th centuries; therefore the Apocalypse prophecy edited and printed during this time contains medieval astronomical and astrological images.
The astronomical interpretation of verbal images of Apocalypse yields the following horoscope of planets in the constellations: Planet Jupiter in Sagittarius, Planet Saturn in Scorpio, Planet Venus in Lion; Planet Mars in Gemini, close to Taurus, under the feet of Perseus; Planet Mercury in Balance, Sun in Virgin , Moon under Virgins feet; The tradition says the Apocalypse was written in 95 AD by Apostle John.
The Apocalypse we know today is the last book of the New Testament. First complete New Testament was edited only in 1515 in Basel, Switzerland by Erasmus of Rotterdam on the basis of half a dozen of sources. The text of the Apocalypse comes from the manuscript Erasmus lent from the German biblical scholar Reuchlin. The only moment in time when the combination of planets and constellations described in the Apocalypse could have been observed live from the island of Patmos was from the 25th of september 1486 to 10th of October 1486.
So, when was the Apocalypse - Book of Revelation to Apostle John written?
Ptolemy vanishes corrected Aug 22, 2007
I was probably the first to purchase this hefty book on preorder, but opened it only 2 days ago. I swappped it for potty #7 with my astronomer bookpal and tipped him off how to make easy $10G betting on Almagest. Astronomer read it and returned vol.3 with strong advice not to bet $10G. I sure won't, Almagest was never my cup of tee and Ptolemy no relative of mine. By now my astronomer bookpal purchased his own copy of Astronomical methods of dating..and I have my own hp7. The first astronomical part of this book (Fomenko's one) is way too deep in many a page for a non astronomer, and the second part is a true delight for a puzzles buff, which I'm not, but this book is a must have as it is filled with well argued insights like: 'ancient' Greek astronomer Hipparchus was non other than medieval astronomer Tycho Brahe, the great Copernicus was a doctor, canon and administrator - not astronomer at all, lol.. In the 2nd egyptian section Dr et al have decoded all 'ancient' Egyptian horoscopes that contained readable astronomical information, making timeframe of Egypt very much younger (ix-xv centuries AD!!!). My 1 (one) USD safe bet is: mainstream egyptology will stay silent as mummies - this treatise is more poisonous for them than the curse of Pharaoh. Will anyone say amen Ptolemy, please?

In Florin Diacu's own words: "Fomenko, Nosovski, and Kalashnikov have come up with some interesting methods that can extract new information from the almagest. like any other historical dating, theirs is based on certain assumptions, different from the ones traditionalists have made. without forcing the data, and taking three independent approaches that use valid mathematical methods, they have obtained consistent results that have been published in respected journals. Fomenko's results are obviously not perfect and do not explain everything, but their integrity cannot be denied." ("The Lost Millennium", pp. 144)
Although "Chronology 3" is composed of 2 main parts, that is the Egyptian zodiac datings and Ptolemy's almagest datings, i can only defend Fomenko with the almagest datings, they are sound, they are truly possible. i believe however that the zodiak datings still need to be worked out, i can't find any possible scenario for such late datings.
I strongly recommend this book regardless what any angry historian could say about it. anyone who believes that the chronology of world history is well documented and sound should read as a starter "Centuries of Darkness" by Peter James and his team. Truly, don't believe anyone, simply read, learn and see for yourself. This is history, not math.
When reading Fomenko, one does not have to take everything he says at face value, but one must have an open mind to a field that is dominated more by its general tradition than by its sound proof. just like most believers preach the bible without ever reading it many historians preach chronology without ever having asked the question: what if chronology is all wrong?
