The Wet Climate of Ancient Egypt

When watching movies about ancient Egypt such as The Ten Commandments, the producers naturally assumed the land was very dry like it is today. Scientists have determined, however, that the Sahara was actually a nice place that made for good swimming. Egypt, Israel, and other areas had much water.

If you study on it, Israel was referred to as "a land flowing with milk and honey", metaphorically saying it was a really swell place. Those areas that people were fighting over were not just arid and sandy like today.

Recent research of the Nile shows that Egypt was not always arid, but wet like ancient Sahara. Creation science Flood models show how this happened.

Using some forensic science in attempt to determine what happened in the past by evidence that exists in the present, secular geologists examined pebbles on drive riverbeds. The size and position of those pebbles reveals that flowing water was present. This is in keeping with the previously mentioned wet Sahara discoveries.

Of course, secularists are hitched up with deep time, so they assigned a date range that was tens of thousands of years ago. Biblical creationists say that's not the case. Instead, they claim it happened in the neighborhood of 4,000 years ago. We have seen how secular dating methods are unreliable, and it's better to correlate a date with a witness or recorded history.

Ever hear of a stele? Stelae were wooden or stone slabs set up to memorialize or commemorate something. Obviously, stone is a better choice, and a stele was found that describes flooding around Thebes  about 3,500 years ago. While one stele is not conclusive proof, it fits the biblical Flood geology models, including how the Ice Age and other climate changes were caused by the Genesis Flood.

Although Egypt was apparently verdant, the Nile was still exceptionally important for many reasons. The ten plagues brought by God through Moses were judgments on their false gods, and Exodus 7:17 tells us the first of the plagues turned the Nile to blood.
Evolutionary scientists found evidence that the Sahara Desert was green and fertile at the end of the Ice Age, allowing people to live hundreds of miles west of the Nile River. These findings corroborate creationist predictions of an extended wet period after the Flood.

A global collaboration of scientists, led by Abdallah Zaki of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, reconstructed the ancient drainage patterns of five Nile River tributaries and another small river that drained into what is now Lake Nasser. Today, the six rivers are sinuous ridges of pebbles and cobbles that extend across nearly 15,000 square miles of southern Egypt and northern Sudan.
