Book Review Anthropology Climatology Guns Germs Steel Jared Diamond Eurasian Dominance Evolution Societies Technological Standard Living Advance Ignores Biblical Climate Change Submerged Ruins

September 17, 2012

Jared Diamond in his Pulitzer prize winning book Guns, Germs, and Steel, posits that Eurasian nations have produced the most advanced societies because of natural resources and climate, not because of religious and political views, yet ancient Mesopotamia, the Fertile Crescent (the mountains outlining the north), was as advanced as any, with minerals in the mountains and a river system flowing into the sea for world trade.

So why did not advancement continue in Mesopotamia while it continued in Europe through some dark ages?  It’s because the Middle East was green until circa 1500 b.c. when the Ice Age began to end, vast stretches of previously fertile real estate turned to dust, and submerged ruins since that time prove this late date for the end of the Ice Age when kingdoms became deserts, see more here

What Conditions Were Like During Ice Age Glacial Maximum Pleistocene Extreme Middle Latitudes High Elevations Prodigious Snowfall Rainfall Hydrology

September 13, 2012

When you think of the Ice Age, do you think of elephants on a clear day near icy morasses in the snowy north like in the animated movie?  Think again, frozen buttercups, ferns, trees, and grasses are entombed in the tundra with the mammoth carcasses along the Arctic ocean, so that region was green with pastures and forests during the Ice Age, and clearly, lots of cloudy days with lots of rainfall.

Why was there rainfall in the frozen north now considered a desert for lack of precipitaion?  The key is the cloudcover, lots of it during the Ice Age, not what people think much about, but consider all the snow which need have fallen to have covered some portions of continents with two miles deep of snow and ice?

During the Ice Age it was cloudy virtually all the time, with snow falling in the exteme latitudes and high elevations, and rainfall where now are deserts in the middle latitudes as well as near the coastlines even in the far north where the coastal regions were pastures and forests during the Ice Age, because the nearby world ocean was much warmer, see more

Founders Origins Ancient Archaic Neolithic Bronze Age Greece Textbooks Hellenic History Biblical Javan Progenitor Tribe Ionians Greek Patriarchs Aegean Sea

September 9, 2012

In my old secular college textbook about ancient Greece is mention of Javan, Yavan in the ancient greek (no j sound), who is noted as the namesake of the Ionians, so why would the author note Javan when but the english spelling of the greek phonetics for that name would be Yavan?

Javan was apparently the pelasgian pronunciation, Peleg a son of Heber, the spelling Javan in the hebrew Bible, but the language of Javan after the Tower of Babel had no j sound, so Yavan was the pronunciation by the Ioniains, and Javan the pronunciation by the Pelasgians.

And then before the Phoenicians were called that, and before they were known as Tyrians (Tyre), they were known as Sidonians, namesake of Sidon who was a son of Canaan, later deified the sea god Posidon.  Read much more here

Causes Submergence Underwater Megalithic Bronze Age Cities Ruins Reasons Earthquakes Tectonic Shifts Block Faults Bad Excuse Timing End Ice Age Dilemma

September 9, 2012

The reason given in many cases for the presence of bronze age megalithic ruins on the shallow seafloor is earthquake, block faulting where a coastal section would tectonically drop such that cities would become seafloor (sometimes ‘though about 50 miles from land), yet there is not one known case where the geology indicates that one of the submerged cities such as here was not because of sea level rise but by earthquake.

Roman coastal ruins off Italy and Turkey have block faulted a few feet, now underwater next to the shoreline in a few feet of water, but whole cities on ice age river mouths such as Menouthis and Heraklion off Egypt, and Kususthali in the Gulf of Kutch (Kush), definitely did not submerge by block faulting, not to mention the two large cities at the mouth of the extinct ice age Sarasvati in the Gulf of Chambay which look like the brick ruins of Mohenjo-daro.

When you think of the Ice Age, imagine all that snowfall to have covered much of Cananda and the continental U.S. to a maximum depth of the 10,000 feet, an almost unimaginable amount of snow, on the ground in Ohio year ’round for instance, so the skies must have been thick with clouds almost all the time, which of course made the summers much cooler by shade and more rainfall, considerably cooler.

And because of that dense cloudcover during the Ice Age, the winters were warmer, with prodigious amounts of snow falling to cover much of the continents, that snowfall extending later into the year than today because the dense cloudcover caused a “late spring,” and during the summer the dense cloudcover precluded much snowmelt, the conditions for the Ice Age, with legends such as the flooding of Kumari Kandam, Kususthali, and the Flood of Ogyges from Greece.

During the Ice Age, that elephants roamed southern Spain is confirmed in Plato’s Atlantis reportage, a bronze age empire according to the story, Posidon and his son Atlas the main players in its founding, so who were these men deified?  The Sidonians were some the greatest mariners of the ancient world, named after Sidon, who was a son of Canaan in the Bible, Sidon who became Posidon, they having measured the earth by its wobble rate to accurately map it, see The Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings.

Ancient History Mythology Heros Aegean Heroic Gods Greece Greek Legends Flood Ogyges Atlantis Bronze Age Collapse Osirian Valley Civilization Medterranean Sea Level Fluctuations Chronology Biblical Timeline Age Kings List Peloponnesos Islands Strait Dardanelles

August 20, 2012

Solid ancient greek history is said to have begun with the heroic age pelasgian writngs of Homer and Hesiod, recalling the heros of the 1500 b.c. to 1100 b.c. timeframe, the times of Pelops, Crete, Minos, Europa, Cadmus, Hercules, Troas. Ilus, Dardanus, and Ogyges, the last two having been kings at the time that much of Greece was consumed when the sea level rose, the time when the Black Sea became connected to the world ocean for that strait (Dardanelles) to have been named after Dardanus.

With the bronze age lifestyle known in ancient Greece back to circa 2000 b.c., where are the solid records of chronologies of bronze age kings back before those reported by Hesiod, Homer, and others?  They all say the Pelasgians dominated the scene in most ancient times, back before the Flood of Ogyges which was the end of the Ice Age.  The five centuries or so before that was peaceful and pastoral, when Greece had vast dense forests and rich crops twice per year, where now maybe twenty of inches of rain falls per year, back then was closer to forty inches per year.

History before the Flood of Ogyges is more obsure because of the chaos which struck much of the world when the sea level rose and vast swaths of previously fertile soil became parched desert, when the Ice Age ended, confirmed by the historical disaster described in the Ipuwer Papyrus, the same diastrous time described in the book of Exodus.

What Caused Flooded Drown Frozen Wooly Mammoth Mastadon Why When How Carcasses Snow Ice Tundra Arctic Ocean North Sea Atlantis Reach Great Britain Submerged Doggerland Spain Iberian Peninsula Ice Age Flora Fauna Plato’s Atlantean Empire Elephants

August 16, 2012

With Plato having said elephants abounded in Atlantis, in the shadow of the Atlas mountains, elephants known to have lived from Spain up to Great Britain during the Ice Age, you wonder at his saying too that the Atlanteans navigated the world in trireme ships with bronze age products, so did the Ice Age end much later than we are being told?

Atlantis was a coastal empire, its capital the City of Atlas now submerged probably 30 miles south of Cadiz, when the sea level rose with the end of the Ice Age, a time of great climate change, when the elephants along the Arctic ocean coastline were flooded out by meltwater, then frozen over winter, many of them still frozen in tundra to this day.

During the Ice Age in southern Spain, where today ten to twenty inches of rain falls per year, perhaps forty or fifty inches fell, with much snow in the Sierra Morena and Nevada mountains, the environment where lived the elephants of Plato’s Atlantis, lush greenery there where today more often than not is desert.  And that was 10000 b.c.?  Not with bronze age ships and weaponry, see
