Mainstream archaeologists really don’t have a clue why there were mass migrations of people groups in the ancient world when the so-called bronze age civilizations collapsed, when the Mycenaeans of Greece destroyed Troy, and the Sea Peoples invaded Egypt in a thousand ships, among them the Peleset, who settled the eastern Nile Delta circa 1200 B.C., establising the port city of Pelusium, the Peleset also known as the Philistines, their pottery showing great affinity to the Mycenaean, with the shards of such clay ware found from that time up the coast to Gaza, the realm of the Philistines, who controlled the coastal region of the eastern Mediterranean from eastern Egypt up to Gaza, beginning circa 1200 B.C., at the time that the Jews were subduing most of Canaan, with Gaza and that coastal strip, previously controlled by either the Canaanites or the Egyptians, having been taken by the invading Philistines of biblical record, who suddenly came on the scene at the time of the Judges.
Something caused those mass migrations, but what and why? There are extensive submerged ruins off the coast of Egypt and Canaan (Israel and Lebanon) of bronze age vintage, such as of Heraklion, Menouthis, old Sidon, Tyre, Yarmuta, and Byblos, so would that not indicate serious climate change which caused the sea level to rise to end the bronze age? And with that sea level rise, would not many civilizations have been disrupted, with the ruins now submerged in many parts of the world as they are, those ancients forced to relocate by hook or by crook?
Recollections of Atlantis? Indeed. The greek Plato repeated an inaccurate date, the sea level rise was actually circa 1500 B.C., with most of the rise completed in about a hundred years, leaving many port cities now on the shallow seafloor, from an obviously very inconvenient time for most scientists, when the Ice Age actually ended, which certainly is the reason why National Geographic and the History Channel assiduously avoid the submerged ruins topic.
When the sea level rose, about three feet per year, the people now doubt abandoned there port cities, moving inland, but as the climate was drying at that time too, as the Ice Age was ending, rich pastures and forests lost their water sources, because of much less rainfall, so tribes and clans were forced to sail away or migrate by land, as was the case of the Aryans down from central Asia into India when the Ice Age ended, also difficult for mainstream scientists to understand not admitting that was when the Ice Age ended, really quite obvious, but anathema to mainstream scientists, because it comports with the biblical timeline, and when’s the last time you noticed a darwinist consulting the book of Genesis for guidance?
