Noah's flood may have taken place at the Aral Sea in Sothis year 600 not in Noah's 600th year of life. Much as we have years AD in the year of our Lord.
Genesis 7:6 "And Noah was six hundred years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth."
The Armenians had a Sothis calendar like the Egyptians.
Thus the flood be year 600 in the Armenian Sothis cycle. 2010 was the end of the 1460 year calendar. The calendar had no February 29, or leap year. The Egyptian new year began with the first visibility of Sirius at 4:15 AM July 16. Thus the new year backed up from July 16, four years later to July 15, four years later to July 14 and so on. Till after 1460 years the new years was July 16 again.
365 days times 4 = 1460 years Sothis Cycle.
Genesis 5:23 "And all the days of Enoch were three hundred sixty and five years:
5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him."
From the beginning of the Egyptian Sothis Cycle in 4198 BC is 368 years to the beginning of the Armenian Sothis Cycle 3830 BC. 365 years signifies the Sothis calendar that the calendar backs up 365 days in 4 X 365 years.
The Armenian Sothis new year began July 11, a few days before the Egyptian Sothis new year July 16.
The Armenian Sothis calendar appears a few hundred years more recent than the Egyptian.
The Armenian Sothis start date must be put back the same 76 years as the Egyptian. Then the Armenian start date be 3907 BC = 3900 years before Jesus' birth and Noah's flood in year 600 = 3307 BC.
If the sun was moved to the other side of earth at the equinox, earth would not need to shift = rather, the sun would not need to move up or down to keep in the same season. If the sun was moved on the perihelion or aphelion (nearest or furthest to the sun) of earth's orbit = a half orbit of 182 days, then there would be no net missing minutes either. Then, earth could flow out of a reverse orbit of the sun in three and a half years, without a trace, or any net missing time.
"two weeks, and then sealed ... all the constellations of heaven, sun, moon, and stars and Watchers"
Translation Of 1Q Genesis Apocryphon II-XIX
If the sun moved to the other side of earth "two weeks" before the flood on the 17th day of the second month, that would give 189 days to the 17th day of the seventh month. The half orbit should be 189 days rather than 182 days. By tradition, the sun rose in the west and set in the east seven days before the flood.
189 days from Saturday, February 9, 3307 BC to Saturday, August 17, 3307 BC = half an orbit.
The sun must have moved Saturday, February 9, 3307 BC, one week later Noah entered the ark, one week later the flood came.
If the sun returned one year later, it would also be two weeks before Noah stepped out of the ark. The two weeks can be before the flood or before Noah stepped out of the ark = the sun moved, six day moon February 9, 3307 BC, 17th day moon August 9, 3307 BC and 14th day moon = passover = February 9, 3308 BC.
"One hundred and fifty days did the waters hold sway over the earth, until the fourteenth day in the seventh month, the third day of the week. At the end of the one hundred and fifty days, the waters came down (during) two days, the fourth and the fifth day, and the sixth day the ark rested in the mountains of Hurarat, it was the seventeenth day of the seventh month.
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition, Volume I, p.503.
August 13, 3307 BC was both the third day of the week, Tuesday, and the 14th day of the lunar month = the full moon. Then the 17th day should be Friday, August 16, 3307 BC. 186 days back from August 16, 3307 BC = February 11, 3307 BC. 150 days back from the Armenian sothis new years July 11 is Saturday February 9, 3307 BC and is two weeks before the 17 lunar day Saturday, February 23, 3307 BC.
If the fall equinox was on the perihelion, the three months to the winter solstice and the three months before the fall equinox would = half an orbit = about 178 days and the other half orbit = 187 days. In the days of Noah in 3307 BC this would be the case. Thus, the multiplication of the sped up reverse orbit would be different.
Thus, if the sun moved at the winter solstice in 3307 BC and returned half an orbit later at the summer solstice, that would equal 187 / 365 X 24 hours. That is 23 hours and 20 minutes of sped up time in that the slower half. And the other half orbit equal 24 hours and 40 minutes sped up time to total the 48 hours sped up time to leave no net missing time.
The equinox was April 20, 3307 BC. Then, from January 20 three months to April 20, and from April 20, three months to July 20. 186 days back from Armenian new years July 11, almost the same 150 days back, a 30 days more to half an orbit, = 600th year. 600 / 4 = 150 days. From the second month 10th day, Saturday, February 16, 3307 BC to the seventh month 17th day, August 17, 3307 BC = 182 days.
If the sun rose in the west and set in the east one week before the 17th day of the second month, yes, this half orbit should be 182 days.
However, this half orbit would more likely be 189 days, from Saturday, February 9, 3307 BC to Saturday, August 16, 3307 BC.
Thus, because the overlap of one month of the perihelion and the equinox, half an orbit should be this 182 days. 182 + 182 = 364 about the 365 days of the year.
The first half orbit of Noah's flood should be 189 days. Thus, the sun rise in the west and set in the east "two weeks" before the 17th day of the second month = 189 days to the 17th day of the seventh month = August 17, 3307 BC.
Then Jesus must have been borh September 12, 7 BC, the 17th day of the seventh month.
From February 16, 3307 BC to the Egyptian sothis new year July 16 is 150 days = 600 years / 4 = new years February 16.
However, the flood was in Armenia, so we use the Armenian calendar.
The Armenian sothis new years is about July 10 not July 16 = the first appearing of Sirius before sunrise. From February 9, 3307 BC to July 10, 3307 BC is 150 days. The sun must move from Saturday, February 9, 3307 BC half an orbit 189 days to Saturday, August 17, 3307 BC.
The 17th day of the Hebrew month = Saturday, February 23, 3307 BC. Two weeks before = Saturday, February 9, 3307 BC.
"In the year six hundred of Noah's life, in the second month, on the first day of the week, on its seventeenth day, on that day all the springs of the great abyss were split and the sluices of the sky opened.."
The Dead Sea Scrolls, Study Edition Volume I, p.501. 4Q252.
Sunday = the first day of the week = March 24, 3307 BC was the 17th day of the second Hebrew lunar month, March the second month from February; 150 days back from July 10. Noah entered the ark on Saturday, the flood was the following day Sunday.
Jewish tradition states the sun rose in the west and set in the east seven days before the flood.
Genesis 7:11 "In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, the seventeenth day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened."
Genesis 8:4 "And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat."
This equals Jesus' birth September 12, 7 BC the 17th day of the seventh month.
In China the following record was also on the 17th day of the seventh month, the year Abraham was born. Thus Abraham could have been a type of Christ.
"In Hwang-te's (Huangdi) 50th year (October 18, 2607 BC), in autumn, in the 7th month, on the day Kang-shin (57 of cycle 60), phoenixes, male and female arrived." In Huangdi's 20th year, from the new moon at the beginning of the year, day one of cycle sixty, January 27, 2636 BC. The date the 17th lunar day of the 7th month may be a prophesy of Jesus born the 17th day of the 7th month, about September 13, 7 BC. Thus Abraham born 2600 years before Jesus to the day.
Phoenixes are angels that carried the sun and the moon to the other side of the earth. Then the sun may rise in the west, stand still in the sky, or suddenly rise in the east.
8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of the mountains seen."
Jesus then to be born the 17th day of the 7th month, September 12, 7 BC and conceived the 10th month, thus born 9 months later in the 7th month.
The Egyptian sothis calendar ended the 1460 year cycle in 1281 BC, the year of the Exodus, not 1320 BC. Merneptah was the pharaoh of the Exodus. He died in 1281 BC, not 1205 BC.
"David Anthony and his colleague Dorcas Brown have analyzed horse teeth dating to around 3500 BC from Kazakstan and have found wear patterns consistent with the use of rope or leather bits."
The Story of the Horse, archaeology.org, July/August 2015.
Evidence of domestic horses were found in Botai, a village in what is now northern Kazakhstan that was occupied from 3700 BC to about 3100 BC.
There was evidence of wear marks on the horse's teeth from a bridle.
James 3:3 "Behold, we put bits in the horses' mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body."
Evidence domestic dogs came out of Central Asia has been reported, October 19, 2015.
"At some point after this dual domestication event (about 6,400 years ago), the eastern dogs travelled to Europe with their migrating human companions, after which time they mixed and partially replaced the earliest European dogs."
Domestic dogs may have been on Noah's ark 5300 years ago. The eastern domestic dogs may have travelled from China to the Aral Sea area 1000 years after domestication and be on Noah's ark 5200 years ago = 3200 BC.
Domestic horses were well spread by 3000 BC. Thus, the domestic horse we know may have come from Noah's ark just 300 years previous in 3307 BC.
Without the domestic horse or the domestic dog from Noah's ark, where would we be now?
There were several sources of domestic dogs throughout Asia at the time of Noah's flood. But there was only one source of the domestic horse, among the Botai that were near the Aral Basin, at the time of Noah's flood.
Perhaps the Mount Ararat in the Bible was a raised portion of the Aral Sea Basin that served as a resting point for the ark when the waters receded. The Aral Sea Basin is large. The name of mountain may have been named after the Aral Sea and be similarily pronounce Ararat.
Genesis 7:20 "Fifteen cubits upward did the waters prevail; and the mountains were covered."
15 cubits is 15 X 18 inches = 23 feet.
"The Caspian is only the remnant of a very much larger Quaternary body of water, which also included the Aral Sea. The general lowering trend seems to have been halted in the 4th millennium b.c."
The lowering trend halted = Noah's flood. The Aral Sea did not need to rise much to flood large area's. Even the in the Bible account the sea rose 25 cubits.
The nearby glaciers melted rapidly in the rain that created this dangerous flood. Dangerous also because the ground around the Aral Sea was flat. So the sea rising 23 feet, 15 cubits, suddenly would mean the end for many people living there at the time.
This 3307 BC was just after the ice age. Thus, there would be considerable reserves of water in the mountain glaciers.
The description in this account in iranicaonline.org was of how would people escape with this rapidly rising water. That is just it. This was Noah's flood, and they did not escape. Not one.
The fourth millenium BC is between 3000 BC and 4000 BC. The Caspian and Aral Sea may have been one water. The gradual lowering of that water stopped about this 3307 BC. Genesis records the water rose 15 cubits. Thus, the small rise in the water level may simply equal this stop in the lowering of the sea. The sudden massive melt of the glaciers would equal a large flood. There are olive trees in the south of the Caspian Sea.
Psalm 147:8 "Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains."
Psalm 147:18 "He sendeth out his word, and melteth them: he causeth his wind to blow, and the waters flow."
It was stated in the above report on the level of the Aral Basin that the level land and fast rising water would have been very dangerous for the people living there because they could not have out run the rapildly rising water to higher land. Thus the people perished and Noah and the ark were saved.
Proposed sun movements pointing to Jesus' birth. See Joshua's Long Day.
Genesis 8:13 "And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry. "
Here you see seven sun movements the year of Noah's flood. The sun moving to one side of the earth and earth flowing into a reverse orbit of the sun, back and forth.
