1. I am not familiar with Hezekiah's retreating sundial shadow. Is this event symbolic of the Earth tilting or the Sun moving farther away? Did some calamities occur during Hezekiah's time?
2. The plagues of Egypt occurred near the time of Exodus; what possible celestial events caused this catastrophe and the retreating sundial shadow?
3. I just learned that the Jewish Torah claims that known life (or genesis) began about 6000 years ago. I presume your claimed dating of the subject events is based upon this Biblical beginning of mankind. Hence, a discrepancy of dates occurs to me. The so-called Golden Age occurred before the Saturnian polar column collapsed about 5000 years BP. Perhaps you could explain. I do not care about + or - 1000 years; I am particularly interested in the proper sequence.
Trying to fit together this puzzle, Doug Ettinger 11/22/16
Have you read Velikovsky's "Worlds in Collision"? These events are documented extensively there.
1) There were a series of events at 15 year intervals during the reigns of kings Uzziah, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. These involved the planet Mars. The most recent event was when the sundial retreated 10 steps, and this reversed the effects of a previous disturbance.
2) The plagues involved the planet Venus in commetary mode. The Red Sea was parted due to its electrostatic field. Fifty years after the actual Exodus, during the conquest of Canaan, there was an event known as "When the Sun stood still" or "Joshua's Long Day"; this was accompanied by a meteorite shower.
3) My understanding is that the breakup of the Saturnian system occurred at the time of the Tower of Babel. This would be about 4200 years ago. It was a century or so after the Great Flood. The planets became unstable at the time of the Flood (and were the cause thereof) but the system oscillated between periods of chaos and quasi-stability for many centuries, culminating at the events of Hezekiah, and remaining stable after that. So far.
