A trio of 30-something Northerners, with half a clue in half a garage, trying to make sense of at least some of it all. Fantastic guests with interesting tales, news breakdowns, interviews, alternative ideas, quantum physics, ancient history, Skinner's rats & much, much more, all interlaced with... well, it says on the card here "the finest comedy interludes known to mankind".
Pop the kettle on, it's Amish Inquisition time yet again!

Family Planning in the Ancient World, Festival Of Drunkenness, Spiked Wine, and Psychedelics.
It was best to have them in that order, too.
King Hammurabi is the best known of the early monarchs of ancient times... belonged to the First BabyIonian Dynasty which came to an end, under circumstances shrouded in mystery, some three or four generations after Hammurabi. For the next several centuries, the land was in the domain of a people known as the Kassites. They left few examples of art and hardly any literary works -- theirs was an age comparable to and contemporaneous with that of the Hyksos in Egypt, and various surmises were made as to the identity of the two peoples. A cartouche of the Hyksos king Khyan was even found in Babylonia and another in Anatolia, a possible indication of the extent of the power and influence wielded by the Hyksos. Until a few decades ago, the reign of Hammurabi was dated to around the year 2100 before the present era... At Platanos on Crete, a seal of the Hammurabi type was discovered in a tomb together with Middle Minoan pottery of a kind associated at other sites with objects of the Twelfth Egyptian Dynasty, more exactly, of its earlier part. This is regarded as proof that these two dynasties were contemporaneous... however... At Mari on the central Euphrates, among other rich material, a cuneiform tablet was found which established that Hammurabi of Babylonia and King Shamshi-Adad I of Assyria were contemporaries. An oath was sworn by the life of these two kings in the tenth year of Hammurabi, The finds at Mari "proved conclusively that Hammurabi came to the throne in Babylonia after the accession of Shamshi-Adad I in Assyria"... The Khorsabad list ends in the tenth year of Assur-Nerari V, which is computed to have been -745... the first year of Shamshi-Adad is calculated to have been -1726 and his last year -1694... it reduced the time of Hammurabi from the twenty-first century to the beginning of the seventeenth century... "a puzzling chronological discrepancy", which could only be resolved by making Hammurabi later than Amenemhet I of the Twelfth Dynasty... If Hammurabi reigned at the time allotted to him by the finds at Mari and Khorsabad -- but according to the finds at Platanos was a contemporary of the Egyptian kings of the early Twelfth Dynasty -- then that dynasty must have started at a time when, according to the accepted chronology, it had already come to its end. In conventionally-written history, by -1680 not only the Twelfth Dynasty, but also the Thirteenth, or the last of the Middle Kingdom, had expired. [Hammurabi and the Revised Chronology, Immanuel Velikovsky]
Can’t they at least speak American?
I need to hear someone say “bloodY’ once in a while.
Speaking of eBooks, it would be nice if all his titles were available that way. I suspect that Rohl's health is worse than is generally known, just a hunch, no inside information.
Try the garden thread.
You’d be surprised at the language there.
It’s probably due to the @#$%^&*! weeds! ;^)
The interview with Dr. Cline referenced in the vid you posted.
The Amish Inquisition 149 - Dr Eric Cline: The Exodus, Sea Peoples and The Trojan War
I looked through the Amish Inquisition channel. These guys cover a whole slew of topics.
Is there any chance that the massive volcano eruption - Thera (now called Santorini) - could be responsible for the ending due to some date confusion in ancient times?
Somehow, good FRiend, I picture your personal SunkenCiv bunker to look like the chap’s in the upper right-hand corner...with the King Tut coffin in the background and stuff all over the place.
He has nicer stuff though. :^)
Nope. The "supereruption" of the mid-2nd millennium is a modern invention. The only large ancient eruption dates to about 199 BC. If I weren't so blamed lazy (and fooling around at work) I'd hunt up the links, meanwhile, look up the keywords you'd expect, Thera, Santorini, Calliste (the former name, according to Herodotus), or Akrotiri (that's the name given the ancient town on the north side of the island).
Velikovski covered this 70 years ago.
Thanks! EC actually has posted on FR, and it was in reply to something I'd posted, kinda cool, although he and I, uh, don't see eye to eye, and his reply was pretty weak.
