According to Plato’s account about Atlantis, told to him by Critias, whose great-grandfather was Dropides, a friend of Solon (who directly heard the story from the egyptian priests at Sais), ancient Egypt never suffered from the flooding, “floods from the sky,” nor earthquakes, which were ostensibly the cause of the sinking of the Atlantean empire and much of Greece, because it hardly ever rains in Egypt, and the source of Egypt’s water (the Nile) is from below, not because of rainfall (according to the priests), and therefore, Egypt was never flooded like were the Atlantean empire and much of Greece, as described in the story which certainly perplexes without the biblical model as the template.
The egyptian priests said that when the floods from the sky came (not in Egypt), the swollen rivers washed cities into the sea, leaving greek civilization badly damaged, and the empire of Atlantis destroyed, circa 9600 B.C., as the story goes, but Plato, Solon, and Critias must have known of the legendary flood of the time of king Ogygos, which was known to have consumed much of Greece, having flooded there because of a dramatic sea level rise circa 1500 B.C., leaving submerged ancient ruins off Greece at Platygiali, Astakos, Elafonisos, Abdera, and who knows how many more locations, helping to prove that the sinking of Atlantis, which was both a city and an empire of many other ice age port cities along the coasts of the western Mediterranean and eastern Atlantic, was the same flood as that of Ogyges’ time, not by excessive rainfall to ostensibly have caused whole cities to wash into the sea, but by the sea level rise because of the end of the Ice Age; elementary my dear Watson.
After of the flood of Ogygos, according to greek legend, there were 189 years of anarchy and despair in Greece until Cecrops, circa 1300 B.C., followed by Erechtheus and Erysichthon, began to rebuild greek civilization at Athens, not reported by the all-knowing egyptian priests, nor interjected by Solon, Critias, nor Plato, indicating that they all had selective amnesia, as surely the egyptian priests were aware of the Ipuwer Papyrus, which described the catastrophic climate change which occurred in Egypt (and Greece too), a rapid drying, because of greatly dissipating cloudcover for much less rainfall, which caused the previously rain-fed artesian streams to dry-up, leaving Egypt a desert, and Greece far from the rich lush greenery described in Plato’s reportage.
And surely they were kidding when they said that the Nile mouth port city of Sais (which was founded after the ice age) had always been Egypt’s greatest, when submerged five miles offshore from Alexandria are ruins discovered of the ancient megalithic port cities of Heraklion and Menouthis (named after Menes/Mneseus), consumed by the sea about a thousand years before the egyptian priests’ time.
The Great Pyramid of Giza, which the priests implied was about 8,000 years old, actually was built circa 2200 B.C., its dimensions derived from the surprisingly simple mapping method explained in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, the method which enabled the Atlanteans, Phoenicians, and Egyptians to navigate and map much of the globe, during the Ice Age, before that world was turned upside-down by climate change and much land lost to the sea.
