> He asserts from this that all of ancient history (including the history of Greece, Rome, and Egypt) is just a reflection of events that occurred in the Middle Ages and that all of Chinese and Arab history are fabrications of 17th and 18th century Jesuits.

>He also claims that Jesus lived in the 12th century A.D. and was crucified on Joshua's Hill; that the Trojan War and the Crusades were the same historical event; and that Genghis Khan and the Mongols were actually Russians, that the lands west of the 13 colonies that now constitute the American West and Middle West were a far eastern part of "Siberian-American Empire" prior to its disintegration in 1775, and many other theories, that contradict the conventional historiography to say the least.[citation needed] As well as disputing written chronologies, Fomenko also disputes more objective dating techniques such as dendrochronology and radiocarbon dating

anon, are you OK?

I just read in wikipedia that he's wrong about history and just believed it. I like his paintings and math.

>> No.11309754

yeah he seems legit at math. i like John Nash even though he was a total schizo. i also like Chick Corea's piano playing even though he is a big scientologist. some people's faults just need to be ignored when their contributions are good, so sure.

Interestingly, he is not the only one who claims that there is something wrong with our calendar:
