The Tidal Wave, the Exodus, and Greco-Egyptian deities
Julius Africanus records that the Greek historians call the Great Cataclysm, “the Flood of Ogygus”, or like terminology (Julius Africanus, Fragments, .12, .13.4).
They remained following the last great Krakatoa-like explosion of Santorini in 1551 B.C., which occurred simultaneously with the Dead Sea crossing. After the deaths of Phoroneus and hundreds of colonists, only Ogygus and a handful of survivors remained. There is no doubt that the nations in that era, such as Crete, and the Hittite Empire, must have also sustained damage in that same cataclysm or massive Tidal Wave.
There is no contesting this Cataclysmic event as happening, or of the year or month or day of its happening among the ancients. Only Philochorus challenged the name of Ogygus’ successor, Acteus, as having never existed, and apparently, he was a lone dissenter. He probably considered Apis, the son of Phoroneus, who is deified as a bull in Memphis of Egypt, as the successor.
The first official king in Attica following the Flood and gradual repopulation was Cecrops, in circa 1398 B.C.
From the Flood to the First Olympiad, there were reckoned 1020 10-month years. That is, 827 12-month years.
If subtracted from 741 B.C., we come to a year of 1568 B.C. However, with the double reckoning of the “descent of the Heraclidae”, we find that we can allow for the plus or minus of a generation of up to 25-27 years. Doing this, we fall within our margin of error and within the justified criticism of the consistency in the Greek reckoning of years prior to the Olympiads. Hence a de facto date of 1553-1551 B.C.!
Polemo, in his “Greek History”, volume I, recorded how that a division of the Egyptian Army left Egypt and settled in Canaan, following the tidal wave: Apis, the Son of Phoroneus of Attica being among the survivors of the Cataclysm. (Julius Africanus, Fragments, 13.6.).
In Egyptology, Apis is the bull, (the stud who repopulates by being oversexed, much like the oversexed Osiris) but the Greeks call him “Epaphus” - the intensive of “upon informing secretly of crimes in progress” (Herodotus, Histories, 2.153).
As Dionysus, the deity of the vine and wine, we find that Osiris is also a known habitual drunkard. Understanding these Greek and Egyptian labels, we may conclude that he may also have practiced a sexual deviancy, which we now label as sado-masochism. The ancient Egyptians thought upon Apis as the deity of cataclysms and disaster. After a disaster, the Egyptians are called to celebrate and make merry to Apis (Herodotus, Histories, 3.27). Apis is deified in Memphis as the bull of Ptah, making him out to be an Egyptian son. Memphis, as referred to by the Greeks, translates as being “the house of the spirit of Ptah”.
Apis, as a festivity deity, is out-celebrated only by Osiris: whom the Greeks call Bacchyus and Dionysius, whom married Ceres, the daughter of Prometheus (Herodotus, Histories, 2.42, 2.49, 2.59, etc.). In return, Osiris brought Egyptian arms and civilization into Greece. Ceres became known as Isis among the Egyptians, and Demeter among the Romans in later centuries. To the Greeks, she became known as IO, the beginning of all time: “As of now, and forever, we have arrived”, might be a free translation of this. Osiris married Ceres, the Greeks claim, because of his sex drive.
The Egyptians call Ceres or “Isis” the “moon”, perhaps as an idiom of Osiris first obsession with her. In honor of his memory, the phallic orgies of Greece were annually celebrated, with male organs of every size and material waved about; until drunken or - gies raged through the night by the torches and campfires.
It must be remembered, that these “adults” engaging in this activity were most often only from their mid-teens to their mid twenties; there being a life expectancy of no more than 33 years among the Greeks of the period from Osiris to the First Olympiad. So it probably also was with the ages of maturity in regards to those Hyksos who were forced to leave Egypt. They were most likely a largely “teen-and-under” population, with parents no older than in their 30s. What are believed to be the bones of parts of Osiris are buried deep beneath the Sphinx, which image represents the man and his se - xual appetite. During the festival of Isis, the people are called to beat their fists upon their chests for hours on end; symbolizing the grief that this man put Isis through.
He met his end by raping a young girl, who perhaps was the daughter of his own brother. Her offspring, either daughter or granddaughter, became Nefertiti to the Egyptians; but to the Greeks, she became the goddess "Artemis" /“Diana”.
Josephus relates that Manetho agrees with Polemo, stating that no fewer than 240,000 of the Hyksos (men, women, and children) left Egypt immediately (and peacefully), following a brief siege by native Egyptians (from Thebes) after the Red Sea crossing; and settled in Judea, -- even in and about Jerusalem (Josephus, Against Apion, 1.14). These were the very ones, being giants and Rephaim/Nephilim, who the spies of Israel, only days later, discovered and feared in Numbers 13:33.
Geo-climatic obstacles: a frozen pre-1000 B.C. Europe
The reason why the 10-month calendar existed in the first place probably had to do with the melting glaciers of Europe. In the pre-1000 B.C. era, much of what was north of the Balkans, and certainly north of the Danube, was glacial ice.
In this period, and until after the Assyrian conquests of Israel in the 8th Century B.C., for example, Britain was called as the southern area of the Artic (i.e., polar) regions (Theophilus to Autolycus, 2.32).
However, by the reign of Cyrus I, the region above the northern Mediterranean had stabilized. Slowly, civilization was migrating into the western and northern unsettled wildernesses. Why else, except for glacier flows, would Europe for so long been unexplored earlier? And within these regions allegedly lurked remnants of the dinosaur species, which still were known on occasions to kill “multitudes”. These dinosaur remnants were to be led astray out of the forest, and into an open plain; because they could be killed only by employing a proven technique and with hordes of warriors against it from all sides (Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 1.31.4).
This activity, of slaying remnants of dinosaurs, was a current necessity as late as 181 - 183 A.D. and was the means by which we have our dragon legends dating to as late as the 500s A.D. in our day.
The use of this key to understanding the Greek reckoning is a matter of willingness to apply the formula left behind for us, and to examine what is being passed down to us.
The Chronology of the ancients, some to greater and many to lesser degrees, will need to be re-evaluated and re-dated, and re-learned. Who would have thought that a real woman named Ceres married Osiris and became “Isis”, turning her homeland of Attica (Athens) into an enriched Egyptian colony?
Or who would have thought that a tidal wave would have wiped Attica out a couple centuries earlier, when it was a minor settlement of the (Syriac-Babylonian) Hyksos who ruled Egypt, at the same time the Jews passed through the Red Sea on dry land? This too, is contained in the reckoning of the Greeks.
Julius Africanus, in Fragments 13.7, cites that Theopompus in his ‘Tricareneus’, stated that it should have been expected that Attica (Athens) would share in the judgments of the Exodus, of hail and storms, and to suffer with the Egyptians, as Attica was a colony descended from these same Egyptians.
Some call Danaus, uncle, and vice-Pharaoh (or “Administrative Regent”) with Rameses, as the most ancient name of origin among the Greeks who later settled Italy and became Romans (Tertullian, Apology, .19). This Danaus built many monuments and statues in tribute to his nephew all over Egypt, before taking his navy and settling Greece.
We also learn that about 200 years later, some 20 “Greek” years after the Trojan War, in 1012 B.C., the Dorians conquered Greece, and the government of Ascanius began. Then, in just two generations (in 957 B.C.), these same oppressive Dorians sparked the “descent of the Heraclidae”: a mass migration to lesser Greece (Italy, and also Sicily - when as yet the Corinthian Sea had not emptied out to indicate that tidal wave that removed Sicily’s then land passage to Italy). Thus, the Syrians or Assyrians who migrated to Egypt as Hyksos, migrated to Greece, then migrated also to Italy, and later became the Romans.
Some of those Hyksos who migrated to Greece, also migrated to Tyre, becoming Tyrians, and some of those migrated to Carthage, becoming the Carthaginians to which Hannibal made his name of renown. This makes the Carthaginians and Romans as distant cousins. Strangely enough, the Hyksos were also related to the Anakims (Numbers 13:33) or “Nephilims”. Nephilims are translated as giants, but literally, it means “the fallen ones”, and is a direct reference to those who died in the Red Sea while pursuing Israel.
In Joshua 11:21-22, we see that --although they are later defeated -- they are pressed into an area and people from which Goliath the giant was from. For the Greek pirates of Crete and Greece, the Aegean Sea based “Philistines”; it was only natural for them to invade Israel against the Hebrews, as the Anakims and the Philistines were “cousins”. This explains why the Philistine conquest came about after the Exodus: it was a family conquest to regain land lost to the giants of the land, who lost their lands to the Hebrews -- a lowly people who had once been their slaves.
And so, history falls into place, and the “nonsensical histories” of the Bible suddenly begins to make sense and be quite logical.
