Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone is familiar with Velikovsky's chronological thinking. If so, what is the genearl consensus?

Welcome to the forum.

I know it's somewhat quiet here, but I still hope that once I get more material on my site there might come more to join.

Velikovsky is somewhat controversial, isn't he?

Thanks for the welcome. I look forward to sojourning here!  Smiley

Velikovsky certainly was a controversial figure in his day, though he cut the path that David Rohl and many other chronological reformers now tread so to speak.

What is interesting is that some of his cosmological conjectures (Venus being very hot, Jupiter emitting radiation as I recall) have been proven true since he put them on paper.

Though many of his chronological ideas (such as delinking Dynasties 18 & 19 in Egypt and seeing in the latter duplicates for Dynasty 26) are now largely disregarded, some of his premises are still used by current revisionists (such as Brad Aaronson/Lisa Liel, who maintain Velikovsky's equasion of Shishak with Thutmose III).

I shall be looking again at Velikovsky's "Darke Age of Greece" once I finish "Lords of Avaris" (not long to go now - last chapter).
