What are my Sources and References?


What are my Sources and References

What are my Sources and References

I always get this question from interested readers and skeptics. When a scholar uses information from sources, it is needed to tell readers where the information came from and where they can locate credible sources. This is what citations and references are for.

But if researches challenge the credibility of existing sources then a different approach must be followed. Otherwise new researches will lead to the same old invalid findings.

My answer for this issue once and for all is:

The common element in the history of the Middle East and religions took me too far from the region. I have had to look into the history of Central Asia and the emigrations of those who I called “Turkic-Mongolians” because of the absence of a term that exists in both Arabic and English.

There may be some Chinese and Russian sources, but I have not seen them.

The method of history revisionism which I follow is not conventionally based on references and sources, but on modern evidences, analysis, investigation and reconstruction. Therefore, it is necessary to study traditional sources only to discover their weaknesses and to link conflicting, unproven, and contradictory narratives based on logic and modern information only in order to develop an alternative narrative. Then test the resulting new hypotheses in the general framework of modern and ancient history.

For example, if it is mentioned that Abraham used camel; Jacob and his sons entered a walled city; a great destructive volcano happened and was not mentioned in the history of the Israelites; the Hyksos and Mitanni had common foreign origins; or that Abraham made long journeys without specifying the type of animal. These are few simple issues to research, investigation, and test. There are an enormous amount of weak and false stories that confirm the poor historicity of our existing references, sources, and religious interpretations.

So unfortunately I have no reference books or even historians to suggest, because these many new topics and facts had not been studied before. Take for example camel and horse fossils; the Thera (or Santorini) eruption, the Scythian, Indus Valley, Iranian, and Zoroastrian histories, the great late bronze age collapse; links between Hyksos, Sabaeans, D’mt, and Kush.

Therefore, I could only recommend revision, criticism, new assumptions, and reconstruction of history using logic and available new and old information. It is a difficult and doubtful method to use, but could be the best way to discover true history.
