The Earth is like a giant etch-a-sketch that gets cleared every few hundred millenia! ;) Seriously, I think that notion is possible. In Plato's Timeus, Solon not only talks about what he learned of Atlantis but he also was told that the Earth and civilization has been destroyed many times by many great floods, to paraphrase it very loosely. I think that was knowledge that came from an ancient Egyptian priest. Too bad that library in Alexandria burned down. I wonder if it would have held that information!
