With the massive ancient building near Memphis in Egypt, the Great Pyramid of Giza, built circa 2200 B.C., one would expect evidence of ruins of the ancient egyptian oceanport cities of that time, where the Nile delta meets the Mediterranean Sea; Egypt’s gateway to the relatively fast transit of the oceans, achieved by the navigational method described in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com.

But on the mediterranean shoreline there are no ruins of ancient ports from the days of Old Kingdom Egypt, because they are submerged on the seafloor out to five miles from shore on the now submerged banks of the extinct canopic branch of the Nile, that branch which ceased to be a navigable waterway from the Mediterranean up to Memphis by around 600 B.C., because the rainfall had been declining for centuries (since about 1500 B.C.) by that time, having left the riverport city of Naukratis, half way between Canopus and Memphis, no longer navigable to the sea, only a trickle by the time of Alexnder the Great.

The ruins of ancient Heracleion and Menouthis are there now submerged on either side of the mouth of the ancient canopic branch, ruins five miles from shore, about twenty miles northeast from Alexandria; huge ruins, with megalithic walls reported up to ten feet thick, temple ruins too, one megalithic temple structure said to be a hundred feet square, and statues, and paved streets, and dock facilities, major port cities from Old Kingdom times, now submerged since the end of the Ice Age, when sea level rose prodigiously to consume the port cities of the archaic bronze age world.

It is recorded that Alexander the Great took the sacred egyptian artifacts from Canopus to Alexandria when he built his city nearby, so why were not the the sacred relicts located in Menouthis or Heracleion if those cites actually submerged  around 800 A.D. as mainstream scientists opine?  And why was not that catastrophic submergence, ostensibly since the Muslims have been ruling there, not recorded by them?  And why did the invader Alexander never bother to march on those important port cities, Heracleion and Menouthis, since they were ostensibly the coastal hubs at that time?  The answer is that the Ice Age actually ended circa 1500 B.C., confirmed by many ancient legends, and by the now submerged ruins in hundreds of locations around the world.  And be sure to checkout see http://genesisveracityfoundation.com.
