Zahi Hawwas of the Egyptian Antiquities establishment has announced the discovery of an ancient city now in the Sahara Desert about 20 miles west of the Nile in the Fayoum Depression, which was a huge lake during the Ice Age, 30 miles wide and 20 miles north to south, with this ancient city’s ruins, Kom Aushim, now 4 miles from the remnant Fayoum (which means “the sea”), whose shoreline was at Kom Aushim when the Fayoum was filled during Old Kingdom times, when the region had much vegatation with streams and lakes in what now is the virtually rainless Sahara Desert.
The city is said to have been composed of paved streets and dressed limestone block buildings, with granite sculpted facades, terracota facings, ruins of large ovens, granaries, all which you’d expect from a major Bronze Age city in Old Kingdom Egypt, when the big pyramids of Egypt were being built too, when that now desert region was lush and well watered, when the Nile ran consistently much deeper and wider, causing overflow into the Fayuom basin which later joined back to the Nile down near Dahshur.
Hawwas says the ruins look like those of a classical Roman or Greek city, and in the same breath, he says that the city is “neolithic,” supposedly built almost 3,000 years before the other great megalithic structures of ancient Egypt, which clearly makes no sense whatsoever, however, he and other mainstream experts need to say that it was built as far back as possible, as the consensus among mainstream scientists is that the Ice Age, with all that rainfall in the middle latitudes, ended 5,000 years before the neolithic, at around 10000 B.C. (and many say it ended even earlier than that).
Kom Aushim means Khem Osiris People, as Kom seems to link to Khem or Khemit, the ancient namesake of Egypt, and the Au in Aushim is the symbol for gold, so Aushim means the people of gold, and as Khem was the biblical Cham or Ham, the ancient city’s name means Gold Osiris People of Ham. Osiris was the ancient god of the setting sun, who rises as Horus, the new sun, with the Pharaohs’ considering themselves the children of the “regenerated” sun of the morning, the Horus Pharoahs, so the gold people of Aushim were Old Kingdom Horus/Osiris worshippers, who thought gold had properties of divinity, the sun, not to mention that it was very valuable from the earliest times, when tribes migrated away from Mesopotamia in the decades and centuries after the Deluge.
Only the Deluge, with the “fountains of the great deep” (the midoceanic rift zones) having injected geothermal water for warmer post Deluge oceans could have caused the great evaporation rates to create the dense cloudcover for the Ice Age, when it was much rainier in Egypt, because of the warmer oceans for dense cloudcover, when the Great Pyramid and the other grandest structures of ancient Egypt were being built, when ancient Kom Aushim was a major city on the shores of the Ice Age Fayoum.
The Ice Age ended, beginning at around 1500 B.C., the time of the Exodus, as graphically described in the ancient Ipuwer Papyrus, which portrays the anarchy and mayhem which resulted from desertication of Egypt and the Sahara when the Ice Age ended. The New Kingdom of Egypt began after these decades of panic and disaster, when hundreds of thousands died, and the land just dried up, much less rainfall, because the world ocean had cooled to about today’s temperatures, hydrology 101. This is when Kom Aushim turned to dust, as the Fayoum receded away.
