I think the Egyptians had already entered their Imperial twilight years.

They may have exerted some influence over the land of Canaan, but I don't think they dominated it.

However, it's a fair point!

If you click on the first link on this page, the book comes up.

Scroll down to pages 59-61.

Quite a while since I read it, but it's a very interesting book overall. Plenty of detail without being too heavy!

It is a bit of a stretch as there is absolutely no evidence of a world-wide inundation.
Many settlements and people tend to concentrate around the coasts. Have you looked at maps of how the various continents changed since the last Ice Age? There are also other incidents were land was rapidly flooded. Doggerland, the undersea landslide and an Ice Age lake in North America that burst into the North Atlantic, the Black Sea and areas that were once populated, various inundations caused by tsunamis. Even parts of Alexandria in Egypt lie underwater today due to earthquakes and the liquefation of sand (basically what was solid acts like a liquid under stress) on which some of it was built.

The Doggerland changes are on Wikipedia.

Yeah, but it's still not a world wide thing though. But it is feasible that is what the flood myths are based on. Just the evidence doesn't quite fit right.

It was a world wide thing as oceans rose due to the melting ice and the changes in the landscape due to the mass of the ice being removed (Isostatic rebound https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-glacial_rebound ). Some of the research showed that the flooding in some areas was quite rapid rather than a centuries long flooding.

Yeah there are also some other studies that suggest there were three massive flood events spaced out over a few thousand years when the glaciers began to melt. The biggest being when Lake Agassiz, formed from the melting Laurentide Ice Sheet in North America, burst through it's Ice Wall and entered into the Atlantic.

I guess if we had lit less campfires in 12,000BC, we would have staved off the big melt.
