Shahba, Syria As Eden - Flaming Swords - Imhotep

Post by yakovzutolmai »

Around 2700 BC, two volcanic domes emerged near Shahba, Syria. They poured flood lava over many miles, trapping some fertile areas within the fire. This lava flow later created an inhospitable land full of many caves and crags, called Trachonitis. Relevant to Judean-Babylonian relations in Biblical times.

Shahba is interesting. It was the home of the emperor Phillip the Arab, who renamed the town Philippopolis. He claimed descent from famous robbers in the area. I would wonder if he is descended from Zenodorus. He did replace the Severan dynasty, who were Emesenes (earlier, Sampsiceramus, later, Palmyrene of Zenobia). Tangential.

There are two distinct domes, which in the days of the lava flood, would have spewed flames into the air consistently. Somewhat reminiscent of flaming spirals.

The first two legendary Assyrian kings are Tudiya and Adamu, attested to around the approximate same time as this volcano. Adamu being the first historically attested name similar to "Adam".

About 100 years after this volcano, a "Imhotep" "He who comes in peace" arrives in Egypt and kicks off both its Pyramid trend and its cult of Atum.

Could it be that Trachonitis is our Eden, source of Assyrian and Egyptian religions? Flooded by fire, and protected by the flaming sword?

If so, then would the Hyksos down to Aten in the Amarna period (with the Mitanni interruption) have somewhat remembered?

Is this Trachonitian Eden the source of our Egyptian-Assyrian-Canaanite religious system?

For what it's worth, I assume the meteor strike in 4000 BC ended a lost civilization. Maybe. Leading to a Noahide Vulcan in a then active volcano in Kurdistan, and this Trachonitian colony.
