It's my understanding that a lot of the buildings/ruins/remains from Ancient History have been 'carbon 14-dated'. Is every single one of those dates a manipulation?
I’m not sure how can one carbon date a whole building/ruin; if that was done in the past It would be interesting to know how it was done. However, the problems with the accuracy of the so called carbon dating are well known to many people. Here are just a few examples:
"When the blood of a seal, freshly killed at McMurdo Sound in the Antarctic was tested by carbon-14, it showed the seal had died 1,300 years ago."
From W. Dort Jr., Ph.D. -- Geology, Professor, University of Kansas
"The hair on the Chekurovka mammoth was found to have a carbon-14 age of 26,000 years but the peaty soil in which it was preserved was found to have a carbon-14 dating of only 5,600 years."
("Dry bones and other fossils" by Dr. Gary Parker)
"Scientists got dates of 164 million and 3 billion years for two Hawaiian lava flows. But these lava flows happened only about 200 years ago in 1800 and 1801.
(Radiocarbon Journal, Vol. 8, 1966.)
"The Carbon-14 contents of the shells of the snails of Melanoides tuberculatus living today in artesian springs in southern Nevada indicate an apparent age of 27,000 years."
Alan C. Riggs, Science, vol 224 (1984) 58-61
"In the light what is known about the radiocarbon method and the way it is used, it is truly astonishing that many authors will cite agreeable determinations as a "proof" for their beliefs. The implications of pervasive contamination and ancient variations in carbon-14 levels are steadfastly ignored by those who based their argument upon the dates. The radiocarbon method is still not capable of yielding accurate and reliable results. There are gross discrepancies, the chronology is uneven and relative, and the accepted dates are actually selected dates.

Unfortunately, Fomenko is to real
historical research/revision what the 9-11 "truth" movement is to September Clues
However, if you are
interested in sensible, meticulous research and revision of discrepancies in the chronology of ancient history (taught by academia as dogma), I'd recommend Ages in Chaos
by Velikovsky (in 1952)
I would have considered agreeing with this 7-8 years ago, but not now. Velikovsky is the Alex Jones of the 'science'. How sensible is Velikovsky? Let's see:
1. He had several severe nervous breakdowns.
2. He was a key player in the Zionist movement in the 1920's in Berlin (in the hierarchy above Einstein-the-idiot Kabbalist).
3. He was a racist Jew through and through - read his jewish supremacy anti-Arabs bullshit here:
4. He is as important in the historic chronology and revisionism as is Newton - they are not. Couple of hundred years, give or take, over a period of thousands and thousands of years.
5. His most important book is "The Worlds in Collision", where, according to Velikovsky, first Venus and then Mars comes close to the Earth and thus causing havoc. Hmm.. did you say occultism & cabbalism?
It was released in 1950, in the midst of the 'alien invasion' hysteria, one world-one government. Millions of copies were sold.
I want to make clear that I don’t agree with everything Fomenko and his team is claiming. Actually, there are a number of things that I disagree with (some of his claims are ridiculous and bordering on total nonsense). But parts of his research confirmed a lot of suspicions I had for years regarding the official (supermarket) History, while some of his findings coincided with my findings derived from my own research. So, Fomenko holds no special status with me, just another researcher.
