The Flood
« on: June 17, 2005, 08:37:09 AM »

Is there a way to find out the precise date?
From archeological evidence and historic tradition it is clear that it took place somewhen between 3000 and 3500 BCE.The Mayans date it to 3113, and considering the Aleutian volcano eruption in 3119, which would have triggered a slight cooling of just a few degrees in the years following the event (and thus leading to more snowfall and less snowmelt in mountainous regions such as the Taurus and Zagros) and then causing increased snowmelt and severe flooding in the first year that temperatures returned to normal, this would make sense.

No, it's Temple VII. I don't know exactly, but it's from a time well after the flood.

Thank you. I really need to recheck "Legend" & dig out "Test of Time" again.

Temple XVI would be the very first temple ever build for Enki/Yah, and the ziggurat build behind (and thinly outlined)  Temple I would be the famous Tower of Babel.

Thanks for the clarification. I love the chart. Temple I - um - would certainly make a more impressive candidate than XVI.....

Nice work! Cheesy

Just one question: why have you got Heliki on there? Is there something I've missed? Huh

Thanks for the clarification. What was your source? Is that another NC thing I've missed or a personal idea?

The NC and OC do not differ here. The event was in 373 BCE, just a decade or so before Plato wrote his Kritias and Timaios. The disappearance of Heliki was major talk in Plato's lifetime. Many claim that Plato had based his Atlantis story on the destruction of Thera/Santorini, but that was a millennium (OC) before his time and not as present in his mind as the violent and sudden destruction of Heliki.

It's an interesting fact, though strictly speaking "off topic" as the NC and OC converge prior to this.

Is there any other NC information you need to complete the story that I could help with? Smiley
