Power of Canaan in Middle East Expanded, Peaking Hammurabi in Babylon, Later Climate Change Plunge
By James Nienhuis
Canaan (a son of Ham) and his progeny ruled the Holy Land during the Ice Age, as well as much of the western Mediterranean by ship having established Atlantis too, (by Canaan’s son Sidon/Posidon). Heth (another son of Canaan) was the progenitor of the Hittites having controlled much of eastern Anatolia. Also Sin (another son) in the Sinai and eastward by circa 1750 B. C.
The Amorites (progeny of Canaan) having begun a dynasty at Babylon, climaxed with the dominant rule of Hammurabi. But circa 1500 B.C. that Canaanite dominance in much of the ancient world came to an end, when their seaports were submerged by the risen sea level, and much of the land in the Middle East turned to desert, beginning at the time of the Exodus of the Jews out of Egypt when the Ice Age was ending.
