Chronology

The original Hebrew chronology of the Old Testament, both before and after the flood, is restored; and all the difficulties of the scripture chronology are cleared. The Chaldean (1st/4 civilizations: Sumerian), Egyptian (2nd/4 civilizations), Phoenician (3rd/4 civilizations: Indus-European) and Chinese (4th/4 civilizations: Sinai-Sino Asia) antiquities and chronology are largely explained, and shown to agree with each other, and with the history and chronology of scripture. All the ancient chronology is reduced to one consistent system.[1]

Chronology has been justly called the soul of history; for without chronology history is lifeless, and no better that a dead body without sense or understanding.[2]

Chronos; "Conventional Time"

Chronology; Latin: chronologia; Ancient Greek (χρόνος): chronos; "conventional time" and -logia (-λογία), is the science of arranging events in their correct order of occurrence in time based on some natural recurring events of the heavenly or astrological bodies. Chronology is the science of locating historical events in time, utilizing such tools as a timeline, chronometry or timekeeping, and historiography. Accurately calibrated chronology is necessary for the composition of a universal history; the presentation of the history of humankind as a whole, as a coherent unit.

Without some fixed chronological eras and epochs to which historical relations may be referred, we shall be in the same confusion about them, as we would be in geographical descriptions of places, countries, cities, rivers, etc. without having the longitude and latitude of them ascertained.[2]

Chronology is altogether necessary to history, is the eye by which we are able to trace the footsteps of it up to the beginning of its existence, and of time itself.[2]

It must be both highly useful and satisfactory to beings of so short a duration as man is, to be able to discover the original of time and beginning of things: to live as it were, in all past ages, and fix the history of mankind to certain epochs, whence we can carry it down to its utmost period; and so know the times of the most ancient past transactions almost as well as those of the present age.[2]

In all ages, the genealogies of families, and annals of history and reigns of kings and states, have been made by public authority, and preserved with greatest exactness and care; and accounted inestimable and sacred and laid up in temples as the safest repository of them. And it is the business of chronology to search after, and collect, and put in order the remains of them, and to fix them to their true times, by amending the errors and corruptions which, through length of Ages, mistakes of writers, and of their copiers, have crept into and possessed them.[3]

Chronology is therefore concerned, not only to clear and retrieve time that has been corrupted or lost, but to restore past years, as far as may be, to their original and true epochs, cycles and eras; that they may take those places again which nature at first gave them; and that their course may run regularly, uniformly and without confusion.[3]

Hence it appears, that chronology is part of natural knowledge or philosophy, and is of the greatest importance to history, and renders it both entertaining and a real science.[3]

Among other things Biblical records function as a means of linking cross cultural civilizations chronologies together.

Absolute Chronology

Absolute chronology is a chronology that determines the age of a feature or event in the exact year of occurrence or years of existence, as contrasted to relative chronology. An absolute chronology in history is a list or timeline of specific dates and events or of phenomena expressed in the exact year or years.

Due to variances caused by the difference in calendars used; civil or ecclesiastical lunar calendars, solar calendars or lunisolar calendars historically, the Universal Syphers™ as used in the Wikisyphers utilizes a tolerance of plus or minus six months unless otherwise stated since the beginning of written history around the time of the Biblical Adam in BC AYN 3959. Though this tolerance is usually always exceeded, a tolerance must exist in order for there to be a calibrated accuracy in a system. 6 months in 6000 years is an phenomenal accuracy of .01%.
