Why, oh why the mainstream historians don't gratify widespread mathematician general practitioner Fomenko with laurels, yet name the revolt police? for instance, the English historians rage on the recommendation that the historical past of historic England used to be de facto a Byzantine import transplanted to the English soil by way of the fugitive Byzantine the Aristocracy. As te signal of popularity of the designated position of the English historians who examine themselves the genuine scribes of global heritage, the canopy of the current ebook portrays Tintoretto's Jesus Christ crucified at the sizeable Ben.

Dr Fomenko provides insult to damage, wiping out one after the other: the traditional Rome: the root of Rome in Italy is dated to the 14th century A. D., the traditional Greece and its various poleis, which he identifies because the mediaeval crusader settlements at the territory of Greece, the traditional Egypt: the pyramids of Giza turn into dated to the eleventh to 14th century A. D. and pointed out because the royal cemetery of the worldwide Empire, no much less. The civilization of the traditional Egypt is irrefutably dated to the eleventh to fifteenth century A. D. following the step forward in interpreting of the traditional Egyptian horoscopes reduce in stone. Arabic historians could locate a few comfort within the an important old position of the Ottoman Empire within the sixteenth - seventeenth century. the difficulty is this empire used to be at the beginning a proto-Christian kingdom, with Hagia Sophia identifiable as Temple of Solomon, yet inbuilt 1550-1557 A.D. by means of Sultan Suleiman in keeping with Fomenko! The Divinity excommunicates Dr Fomenko as the heritage of religions in response to Fomenko seems as follows: the pre-Christian interval (before the eleventh century and Jesus Christ ), Bacchic Christianity (11th to twelfth century, earlier than and after Jesus Christ), Jesus Christ Christianity (12th to 14th century) and its next mutations (15th to seventeenth cy) into Orthodox Christianity, the Catholicism, Protestantism, Islam, Buddhism, and so on..and The outdated testomony written after the recent testomony in xiv-xvi cy A.D.!
