As the slave Jews in Egypt were working seven days a week forming bricks for the pharoh’s ambitious building projects circa 1500 b.c in the Nile delta., the climate was beginning to change already in a drastic way. The ports at the mouth of (now extinct) canopic branch of the Nile were gradually beginning to flood at that time over a period of about hundred years, the megalithic bronze age ruins of the port cities there, Menouthis, Canopus, and Heraklion, of course now found submerged on the shallow seafloor out to five miles from shore, clearly submerged since the end of the ice age when the sea level rose prodigiously as no one will deny.
Looking at the Great Pyramid on the Giza plateau at the apex of the Nile delta, surrounded by stark desert except for the Nile now about half a mile to the east (it used to lap at the paws of the Sphinx), could it be more obvious that the region must have been much wetter there during those Old Kingdom times, to have supported the agriculture, natural grazing, and hunting, for such a population? With the trading partner of Egypt the kingdom of Yam, source of timber and ivory, known to have been 700 km to the west of Egypt in the middle of what now is the Sahara desert, and the clear testimony of the Ipuwer Paprus that the clmate changed drastically (drying) in Egypt such that anarchy and death were everywhere in the 1400 b.c. timeframe, who then can honestly say that was not when the ice age was ending?
When Moses and the Jews departed Egypt bound eventually for Canaan, they fled to the interior, away from the coast into the Sinai, because the sea level risen with the end of the ice age was causing havoc along the coasts where the canaanite Phoenicans port cites were consumed by the sea, Menouthis and Heraklion among them, and up the coast Yarmuta and Atlit Yam as well. The interior of Canaan too then turned to dust, at least in the lowlands such as now the Negev desert, but the highlands with more rainfall and so artesian water would be taken by the Jews having arrived from the east, the beleguered and starving canaanites then at the mercy of the supernaturally annointed invaders, the curse on Canaan fulfilled.
