Where now is called Saida (meaning fishing place in arabic) was selected for the annual Lebanon Water Festival, not because of the fish rather the plenteous submerged ruins in the area to photograph, anciently known as Sidon (named for Canaan’s son), constructions consumed by the sea when the Ice Age ended circa 1500 b. c., so the history of coastal Canaan land before the time of Joshua is there on the shallow seafloor. Predictably there is no mainstream academic interest in the extensive stone ruins (proving the real time of the end of the Ice Age) found also off Tyre, Yarmuta, and Byblos, waiting to be explored by such as National Geographic and the many schools of nautical archaeology now paralyzed by the subject at universities around the world.

Although Homer wrote his books Iliad and Odyssey circa 700 b. c. when Tyre was the dominant city of Phoenicia (Syria/Tsour), that island city was not mentioned in Homer’s work apparently because his written accounts were of ancestral oral recitations of history during and after the Trojan War circa 1100 b. c. when the city of Tyre was very young, the island on which it was built having been an island (no longer a coastal mountain) for a few centuries (since the Ice Age ended), becoming significant as Hiram of Tyre would assist Solomon circa 1000 b. c.

Of course the name Assyria (upper Mesopotamia) was known since the progeny of Ashur (a son of Shem) began calling it that circa 2200 b. c., but the name Syria was not commonly used for the region of the Levant (west from upper Mesopotamia to the Mediterranean) until the the 8th century b. c., the earliest notation (a luwian/phoenician bilingual inscription) calling it Surai, because the island of Tyre (Suriyah) meaning big rock (tsur) in Hebrew was a perhaps sparsely inhabited coastal mountain which became a big nearshore island when the Ice Age had ended circa 1400 b. c., submerged ruins up and down the coast to prove it.

Not only did the greek Hecateus of Miletus write that the ancient Cana people of the Levant later became known as the Phonike/Phoenicians (when the Ice Age had ended circa 1400 b. c.), the phoenician Philo of Byblos wrote that Chanaan was a man, of course who was Canaan a son of Ham (see Genesis 10), yet Wikipedia says Canaan is from the word can for lowland, now which do you think more plausible?

Snow melts when it falls on the open ocean, even on the ocean near the polar icepacks, so considering that the Arctic ocean on average is over 3,000 feet deep, the icepack on it should never have formed according the the uniformitarians’ template, but the biblical model makes sense of it all, that when the Ice Age ended because the skies had cleared by less evaporation off the ocean (its temperature had cooled to about today’s), so freshwater flushed off the continents onto the sea, saying onto because freshwater is less dense than saltwater, layered out on the surface to then freeze because the winters had become much colder (today’s temperatures).

The earliest people in the Tarim basin (today the Takla Makan desert) of Sinkiang province China (during the Ice Age) were redheaded devotees of tattooing like the Scythians and Thracians to the west, because such as the Loulan Beauty and Cherchen Man were of the tribe of Togarmah (a son of Japheth), the Tocharians of the Tarim basin, and the name of the Uighurs of the region for a son of Togarmah of that name.

Never mentioned in the Old Testament is the famous Star of David, which seems to have appeared first in the 2nd century a. d. on an archway of a synagogue in the Galilee area, then eight centuries later on the cover page of the Leningrad Codex (the Old Testament called the Tanakh). It lingered in obscurity with the khazarian Jews until the 19th century when Judaists brought it forth to compete with the sign of the cross of Christianity, and to use in the astrological formulations of Kabbala (a late edition to Judasim), become the symbol of Israel.

Atala was a land to the far west in the ancient hindu lore, and atalas in Sanskrit means pillar, like the Atlanteans which held up the roofs of ancient temples in Mexico, so Canaan’s grandson Atlas was well known through that range, made possible by the ice age passage from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean, the distributary of the Nile, today called Wadi Tumilat, which flowed during the Ice Age from the Pelasaic branch of the Nile to the Bitter Lakes region of the Sinai (then down to the Red Sea and on to the Indian Ocean).

When the Ice Age ended during about a hundred years beginning circa 1500 b. c., the vast and deep snowpack on northern Europe melted away (except on the high mountains) for indo european (japhetic) speakers to move in from the east, hence Herodotus, a thousand years later, wrote that the Germani were Persians.

In the ancient frisian book Oera Linda, mother Irtha (earth) gave birth to three daughters who bore three lineages of humanity, Lyda (blacks), Finda (yellows), and Frya (whites), the first two said to have been unruly, while in Frya’s land, Freslond, Friesland (Netherlands), the people obeyed fair and well-thought-out laws. Actually of course the “races” selected naturally during the Ice Age in the aftermath of Noah’s Flood, no discernible “races” before the Flood, the global flood which was conflated in the book Oera Linda with their flooded Atland but consumed by the sea really because of the end of the Ice Age, confirmed by limited extent of the rise of the sea in the story.
