If conventional history no longer applies, which does? This is a very difficult question to answer. The task of revising the chronology is still in its early stages, and the various participants in the debate are by no means unanimous about what should be considered certain and what should be questioned. The last centuries of our history are, of course, documented in largely credibly way. However, where the invented or falsified history ends and the credible one begins is difficult to prove.

Some theories presented and discussed on this page completely upend our view of history. Headlines below are only intended to give a rough idea of the scope of our debate. They are shocking, of course; however, behind each assertion lies a meticulous analysis and often years of research.

None of the headlines cited below represents a settled and immovable view, all merely outline the debates that are going on and highlight the points where possible new findings —always provisional— diverge furthest from the prevailing doctrine.

    • No historical date before the 13th century is to be accepted as certain – all must be re-examined
    • Far less than 2000 years have passed since Roman times
    • The Christian Church as a separate institution has only existed since the Middle Ages
    • The present version of the Bible was written in the 15th century
    • Christianity, Judaism and Islam emerged in their present form largely at the same time
    • The classical authors of the Greeks and Romans are largely creations of the Renaissance
    • The Egyptian dynasties and the Mesopotamian empires lasted only a few centuries
    • Multiple cosmic catastrophes —probably at least one in the last millennium— have influenced our calendar
    • The chronology of other cultures (such as Indian or Chinese) was adapted to the European one in the 17th/18th century
    • A large proportion of the pieces in our history museums are fakes
Common views

The contributors posting on our Revising Chronology website generally share the following views:


  • Since about 1500 of the Christian era -roughly speaking, since Charles V and Albrecht Dürer- our history has been transmitted with some credibility; individual dates can and should certainly be questioned, but the general sequence of events is likely to be correct.
  • The 15th century -the emerging science of astronomy in Europe, the printing press, the voyages of discovery by the Portuguese, etc.- has been handed down more or less correctly, but the dates have been inferred later, so that much caution is called for here.
  • All events prior to the 15th century were established and dated later, and may have occurred in one way or another -or not at all. A large number of figures – kings, church leaders, scholars – were freely invented later.
  • The development of cultures before the 15th century took place much more rapidly than is generally assumed.


  • Frequent cosmic catastrophes have had a decisive influence on the development of the Earth and must be included in our geological models.
  • Multiple catastrophes have occurred in recent human history, roughly in the last two thousand years, and explain cultural developments, although knowledge of these incisions was later deliberately suppressed.

Can such a far-reaching debate even be called scientific? Yes: all research must be conducted on a strictly scientific basis and the outcome will always be subject to review and often revision.
