Looking paper help - write my paper The chronology of ancient Egypt is full of gaps, conjecture, misinterpretations and speculation. In addition to the normal idea of a date, plus or minus so many years, it is not always clear in which year a given Pharaoh may have reigned. In one history (Breasted’s Ancient Egyptian Records) Thutmose III comes to the throne before Thutmose II and Hatshepsut, and Thutmose II is co-regent with Thutmose I during the reign of Thutmose III. Archaeologists also complained that they could find no evidence of Israel in Egypt within the chronology found in the Bible. It was to clarify this situation that Immanuel Velikovsky wrote his Ages In Chaos. This was not his first venture into ancient history. Immanuel Velikovsky was a psychoanalyst who believed that our understanding of the past was flawed by disbelief. He believed that the myths of the classical civilizations contained recollections of real events that were modified into tales that were easy to remember rather than recorded as scientific observations. His first researches were published as Worlds in Collision in 1950. This was not simply an historical revision but questioned astronomical theories of the time, proposing that Venus was a latecomer to the solar system and that the ancient myths recorded both its entry and the resulting displacement of Mars. His ideas were met with disdain and ridicule (even by those scientists who had not read his book), yet now most anomalies in the solar system are explained by recourse to collisions among minor planetary bodies.
