Chronology update

After months of work upgrading my Chronology to reflect recent 14C datings of both the Kallistæ (Thera/​Santorini/​Minoan/​Atlantis) eruption, a series of Egyptian Pharaonic reigns, the destruction of Yᵊrikho and other advances in archeology-related science, I’ve just uploaded the latest update. This time, in addition to my invention of my “Live-Links” on-line publications, I’ve incorporated special…

Zuckerburg PC Dictator: Subverting 1st Amendment

It’s not as simplistic as liberal versus conservative. At their most innermost cores, PC and freedom of speech are intractably conflicted. Freedom of speech unalterably depends on upholding absolutes: truth against false, lies and slander; while PC-imposed prohibitions of PC opinion-defined slurs and hate speech, depend upon the opinion of one person or group versus…

חג המצות שמח

From Karen and me to each of you who are following Torah, for a חמץ-free, כשר 7 days. (Don’t forget to start your count of the עמר tomorrow evening — for which, BTW, there are free apps for your mobile cellphone. (I’m using Sefira 49, free. It has a תימני setting. Some others probably do…

New/Updated Glossary Entries, Telegram Channel

There are new/updated glossary entries (at http://www.netzarim.co.il) for: Habiru, Hyksos & Shasu (in the E-J and R-S glossary pages, respectively. (From our home page, you can click the link to that glossary page and search (Ctrl-F) the entries listed above.) I’ve also opened a Telegram Channel for experiment.

Russian Meddling Aim: NOT Discord, Disruption

Democracies Are Victimized, And Still In Dark Think about it! What single effect is caused by sowing discord, disruption or chaos? The result of discord, disruption and chaos is schism-based hate. The bellwether words here are “polarization” and “radicalization.” When the Russians (or other foreigners) succeed in radicalizing and polarizing the voters of a democracy,…

Illegals: America’s DACA & Israel’s Sudanese & Eritrean Africans; Same Global Liberal, No-Border Agenda

Last month, I was asked, by someone I corresponded with in a Hebrew University archaeology forum (Orion) years ago, for clarification about a global miso-Judaic undercurrent that I had noticed and mentioned in passing. I replied only vaguely as I place a priority on sharing knowledge in open access forums, not special knowledge concealed in…

Times of Israel: DSS Calendar Scroll

ToI published an article reporting the piecing-together and deciphering, by Univ. of Haifa Dr. Eshbal Ratson, of another DSS describing the Osin, 360-day, calendar (https://www.timesofisrael.com/2000-year-old-dead-sea-scroll-deciphered-revealing-2nd-temple-power-struggles/ (2018.12.23); 2018.12.25). First, this was a tedious work well done. Kol ha-kavod. But this calendar scroll doesn’t fit into the overall political power struggle of the Hellenized “Temple” as Dr.…

HiLo Archeologists’ Dating – Yet Again

The 1¾ century gap between “High” and “Low” archeologists’ and scientists’ datings is finding new focus and new scholarship. A decade or two ago, two schools of humanities-trained, arts-degreed archeologists were practically alone in dating the Santorini volcano eruption and the reigns of various Egyptian Parohs. One school insisted that Scripture was correct and the…
