I read the other day that 300 of the 350 or so “Bronze Age” sites in Greece were destroyed or abandoned, quickly, circa 1500 B.C., when the Bronze Age ended, and the author (I forget where I read it, a “peer reviewed” author I’m quite sure) was really at a loss as to why that happened, he guessed climate change, but had nothing to back it up.
Well, climate change it was indeed, in fact, Plato wrote about ancient times before him, during the Bronze Age, when they used bronze (and iron) weapons, and sailed in trireme fighting ships, the ancient time when Plato says that Greece was rich with streams, forests, and pastures, whereas, by Plato’s time, it looked like it does today, dry, rocky, few trees, few streams, difficult agriculture, so those 300 abandoned or destroyed sites were when this drastic climate change occurred, to end the “Bronze Age.”
And over in the Land of Uz, where Job lived, current day UZbekistan, it was much rainier too, for many more streams and pastures and forests, where now it is mostly parched raw desert, but the climate change which struck ancient Greece also hit the Land of Uz, and Elam (Persian), and Sumer, Egypt, the Indus, all through the middle latitudes, when the Ice Age ended.
Atlantis went under at that time, as did other vast stretches of coastal territory, about 25 million square miles worldwide, when the Ice Age ended, for sea level to rise about 100 meters, and so we see the submerged ruins in various parts of the world, such as off Lebanon, Israel, Egypt, Spain (part of Atlantis), France, Japan, India, and Greece.
There are many submerged megalithic “Bronze Age” sites off Greece, such as off Platygiali, Astakos, Abdera, Epidaros, and Elafonisos, these are the ruins from the time when Greece was fighting Atlantis, according to Plato, before much of Greece was consumed by the sea, when Atlantis went under, at the end of the Bronze Age, circa 1500 B.C.
Platos’s 9,000 years before his time for Atlantis is obviously off the mark, it was more like 900 years, and there are a variety of other reasons to believe this, which I am discussing in my upcoming book, Dancing From Genesis, to be released sometime near the first of the year.
