Some scholars agree that the 9000 yrs date in "Plato's" Atlantis Account is certainly not literally true. For example Athens and Sais where not around in 9500-8500 bc. The Egyptians are known for such exaggerated dates like 36525 yrs (bc), 11340 yrs (Herodotus), 9000/8000 yrs (Plato). In Herodotus Menes is 11340 yrs before Seti, yet even conventional Egyptian chronologists only p

Do you mean Orion match Gilgamesh, or Orion with Gilgamesh? If Orion is Gilgamesh then it would have to be a different name for the same person since Orion doesn't look like it could be from Gilgamesh. If Hercules was from Gilgamesh and if Orion is associate of Hercules then how can Orion also match Gilgamesh too? Yes it is possible that the 12 tablets of the Epic of Gilgamesh and the 12 labo

Thanks Michael. Interesting the possible connection of traveled over water/sea/ocean and walked on water. Wakea also walks on water in a NZ Maori tradition. There pretty surely will be alot more connections in these and other cultures. I've found a few. Hopefully we can put together the links found by different people. I have a few more possible matches for Gilgamesh which I might post l

Gilgamesh and Quetzalcoatl the same? Again I am not sure of this match. The first parts of the names are similar but the second/last parts are not so similar. - Similar names? In the previous post we suggested the names and persons Gilgamesh and Viracocha are maybe similar. Quetzalcoatl's name is maybe similar to both Gilgamesh and Viracocha: Gilga/Gilgam = Quetzal? mesh/esh - coatl?

I assume everyone knows who Gilgamesh is/was so I don't need to spend long first giving that info. If you don't know then see here . I've been studying different mythologies and pantheons of different nations and among other things I have possibly found that some of them maybe have Gilgamesh under a possibly originally cognate name. But the different nations seem to have developed pretty differe

I've done another thorough study of Imhotep and Joseph and the similarities between Imhotep and Joseph are pretty convincing despite that there are some seeming differences. It looks like Imhotep may be an Egyptian rendering of the name Joseph. Imhotep's name is variously rendered Imhotep / Iemhetep / Iimhtp / Iu-em-hept / *Ja-im-hatap / Jjmhtp / Imouthes, and some of these renderings are similar

I am not a gradualist (uniformitarianism) i somewhat agree with catastrophism but i do agree with some others that there is not anymuch match for such a large landmass and remains in the mid-Atlantic (which is emerging out and up not in and down) now or since Pangaea except for the Armorica Plate.

I thought the main point in your original post seemed to suggest Rockall island as the location of Atlantis city (which I disagreed with). Pole shift / crust displacement theory is also involved in my own Tiwanaku/America thesis/theory too (which i agree with).

Very interesting thanks. But, Atlantis city is Tiwanaku not Pampa Aullagas. Tiwanku has far more and stark matches and remains and features more in the local myths than PA. The hill in the centre in the Atlantis account is the Akapana. The size of the temple/palace matches Tiwanaku's. Stories of lost city Wanaku. Huinaymarka means eternal city.

If Atlantis were Rockall it would be already easy to see/tell, there'd be remains and matches for all the details of the Atlantis Account (size, distance, direction, sea, large plain, bulls, elephants, remains of city/civilisation, highest mountains, concentric circles city, opposite continent, date, "sinking", etc etc.) Rockall makes me think of Oak Island in Canada and misnamed "

The var(a) "cover, enclosure, " of Yima/Jemshid might be linked with Varuna's clay house which Fasold links with Noah's Ark (which might be Durupinar ark formation by Dogubayzit) which has also been linked with the world egg. Scholars have proposed Yima linked with Yama (Indian) & Ymir (Norse). Hrozny linked him with Yi (Chinese). I have some further which can't post right now.

Yes there may be links of Biblical Eden with other "paradises" of other cultures, like the Hesperides. But Eden was pre-Great_Flood whereas Hesperides is post-Flood I think? so they might not be the same but only have a link. Eden may have been in Antarctica, while Atlantis was (in Peru/Bolivia) in South America. It may be that after the flood Meskiaggaseir/Asshur went looking for Eden

I think i remember seeing it said that the 300 years was lopped off because of dynasty overlaps. (Though i personally think/feel that it shows more casualness than that.) Josephus said Menes was 1300 yrs before Shishak (c 1000/900s bc). Herodotus said Menes was (1)1340 yrs before Seti. These mean that Seti was ca 1000/900s bc, and Menes was not earlier than 2300s bc. Khufu/Cheops seems to

Rebecca: Yes the poles could have shifted. In fact modern scholars are pretty sure that they have shifted a few times. There was probably an axis tilt during flood as implied by mention of "summer and winter" at end of Flood story.

Thanks. I considered all such major proposed locations in the search but did not find Atlantis island etc there. Doggerlands/Northsealand doesn't match: too small size whole island; no highest Atlas mountains; no large plain; nothing found there except Heligoland; etc. But yes that area seemingly may have been a major colony of Atlanteans (as BeNeLux is also modern centre of beast of Aryan 'Atlan

It looks like 3 people were right: Margaret Murray about Edom kings being after Moses, and before Solomon; my friend Graham about link of Edomite king with Hyksos king; and the original poster in this thread about Hyksos were Edomites. The Edomite kings (Genesis 36 & 1 Chronicles 1) seemingly may possibly match Isin & Babylon dynasties? Babylon dynasty may match Hyksos? 7 sons/sheik

Sorry i might possibly have made a mistake about Sheddad & pyramid/s. I was looking at the source awhile ago and it only has connection with Hyksos not with pyramids like i thought it did, so either i made a mistake or else that bit was in another different source. Userkaf's pyramid Abasu and/or Niuserre's is Menasu are perhaps close to "Amsus"? The name is perhaps similar to Rame

There is another king with similar name el-Welid who might be Unas/Wenis. Sources also confuse pyramid builders (4th dyn) and Hyksos (15/16 dyn).

The evidence is overwhelming that Arthur and Patrick have some close connection, whereas there is no way Maui and Arthur are the same (though they could be distantly related but they are not same historical time & place person).
