kittybobo34: To an Egyptian who weren't big on long distance voyages, I can see how they would. Remember this story came from an Egyptian historian Solon.

The 900 year date would also tie in with the Biblical story of the Exodus. Their plagues could easily be volcanic in origin.

ghostgeek: Er, no, Solon was a famous Greek who travelled to Egypt. The story of Atlantis, according to Plato, was related to Solon by an Egyptian priest.

kittybobo34: To Egypt that would have been ancient history, In a country where no one reads or writes, only the priests keep up with it, then the whole thing burned down

ghostgeek: Really? From what I can see in the story nothing unusual happened. A usual spring in Egypt and a few footloose workers on a building site.

kittybobo34: Lets see, from what I remember it went something like: Pharaohs will was sorely tested by the Hebrew workers, dirty and worthless Pharaoh bid them to leave. They left in mass and pillaged every village they past on their way to the Sea of Reeds. Pharaoh sent his army to punish them, but the great general (???) bid them to stop as the water was gone.

ghostgeek: The Plagues of Egypt are suffered yearly by the inhabitants of that country, except for the last one. As it happens, the tenth plague is the easiest to explain. It never happened. Moses lied about it. Read the account and you'll see the Israelites were shut up in their houses when it was supposed to have happened and were reliant on what Moses told them happened.
