Uzbekistan is Book of Job Land of Uz Where Ice Age Climate Explains the Environment Described

Uzbekistan is a nation the size of California, turned sideways, just east of the Caspian Sea in Central Asia.  To the east are the foothills of the northwestern portion of the Hindu Kush Mountains, and the southern shore of the Aral Sea, an inland sea with no outlet, also east of the Caspian Sea, is part of Uzbekistan’s northern border.  Two rivers run across Uzbekistan toward the northwest into the Aral Sea from the Hindu Kush foothills in the southeast.

According to the Book of Job in the Old Testament, Job lived in the land of Uz, so who was Uz?  He was a son of Aram, who was a son of Shem, who was a son of Noah, and the bek in Uzbekistan means lord, so Uzbekistan is the Land of Lord Uz, who was a son of Aram (the namesake of the language called Aramaic), the progeny of Aram having settled north of the Canaanites, as well as east of Cimmeria (Gomer) along the northeastern shore of the Old Black Sea, during the Ice Age, before the inland lake Old Black Sea was connected to the world ocean when the Ice Age ended, when the sea level rose to creep up the valley of the river which outflowed from the Old Black Sea down to the Aegean Sea (see “Black Sea Research”), where today is the Strait of the Bosporus and Dardanelles (the namesake king Dardanus).

The Caspian Sea was much larger then, and it had an outflow (it doesn’t now) which flowed down to the west into the Old Black Sea, during the Ice Age, and the now vast desolate desert plains of Uzbekistan, the Land of Uz, where Job lived, were at that time lush with pastures and forests.  Read Job about the wide diversity of grazing wildlife, and marshes where Behemoth lived, Behemoth with a “tail like a cedar.”  (That doesn’t sound like a hippo or elephant to me, how ’bout you?)

That was during the Ice Age, circa 2000 B.C., when that now parched desert wasteland received as much rain as south-central U.S., and the mountains of eastern Uzbekistan were always glaciated, during the Ice Age, when the worldwide dense cloud-cover also caused cooler summers and warmer winters, and with all that nice rainfall, it was a real paradise, but now, really dry.

And when the Ice Age ended, when the warmer post Deluge oceans had cooled to about today’s temperatures, the dense cloud-cover was no longer produced by the engine of those warmer oceans, so the climate quite rapidly changed to the regime in the Land of Lord Uz of today, Uzbekistan.  See
