lotfinia Posted October 28, 2011 Report Share Posted October 28, 2011 The ancientness of Egypt is currently without dispute. Its mythology is considered one of the oldest in the world and it was written (codified) at an exceptionally early period in time. We can say it was even carved in stone in ca. 2340BCE in the pyramid of Pharaoh Unas, last pharaoh of the 5th dynasty. The language used in this pyramid, is considered archaic indicating great age. Egypt is an excellent source in this matter because it is mentioned early as well in the Bible lending support to the importance of Egypt in the early lives of the Hebrew people. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/484769/Pyramid-Texts There is no mention in any surviving religious, mortuary text indicating any worldwide flood of the Noah style in Egypt. The answer has to be there is no support for a Noah style flood in Ancient Egypt. Therefore, those of us believing the Noah story might be be a local event find support in Egypt, of all places. Despite the multiple flood stories around the world there is a real problem, since Egypt doesn't have such a story. I include one of my favorite paleolithic sites http://donsmaps.com/gobustan.html to me it speaks loudly of the Biblical story and in a realistic human way. 2118 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
