Pulossian-Phoenician Mediterranean trade routes

Plato's geographical misplacement of Atlantis may be a garbling "myth-creep" of descriptions from Pūlossians who had sailed to Portugal.

Kal•lisꞋtæ — Ancient Aege­an Sea-Nymph Mermaid-God­dess Of The Full Moon;Kallistae,Thera,Santorini also the Aegean island named after their mermaid moon god­dess; the site of the 2nd-mightiest volcanic eruption in recorded history, recently upgraded to VEI-7,  cBCE .  

The Pūlossian full-moon, sea nymph mermaid goddess Kal•lisꞋtæ was surely related to both the fish-shaped Dãg•ōnꞋ god of the Pūlossian colony in AhꞋzãh, as well as the moon-goddess known throughout the ancient Mediterranean world as Hãt-HōrꞋ.

At PūlꞋos, modern archaeologists excavating the tomb of the "Griffon Warrior" (who died ≈15–75 years after the Kal•lisꞋtæ eruption), discovered a gold pendant of Hãt-HōrꞋ beside him, confirming not only ancient Pūlossian trade and cultural assimilation with Egypt, but also that the Pūlossians esteemed Hãt-HōrꞋ as a parity with their own goddess Kal•lisꞋtæ.

Strategically located near the ancient epicenter of the Aegean friction fault-line running north-south between the ancient Mycenaean-Greek versus Near-Eastern (including Semitic) cultural and military worlds, Kal•lisꞋtæ was the Pūlossian naval superpower thalassocracy and shipping cartel hub for the Aegean Sea (second only to their main Mediterranean headquarters at Kᵊnossos, Crete).


After Kal•lisꞋtæ: The 5-Century Late Bronze Age Collapse (LBAC)

(The "Greek Dark Age")

You've probably never heard about anything that followed the Kal•lisꞋtæ eruption. There's good reason for that. Archaeologists and historians have traditionally subscribed to the false notion that science and scholarship cannot be compatible with Ta•na״khꞋ. This is an extension of the Medieval Dark Ages Church's lock on scientists, which held that only findings that were compatible with the "divine truth" of Καινής Διαθήκης (displacement mythology supercession, i.e. miso-Judaism) of the Christian Church could possibly be "scientific" and permissible! Contradicting the Church's "divine truth" (equated to "science") was a capital offense. Hence, the subsequent Late Bronze Age Collapse (LBAC), aka the "Greek Dark Age", has long been kept an obscure and long-avoided evasion of reality, not talked-about by the "science" community—despite the undisputed reality that it blotted-out history over the entire Eastern Mediterranean and Near-East for ≈5-cen­tu­ries!!! Why do scientists duck for cover avoiding this discussion? Simply because Kal•lisꞋtæ was a natural event that triggered the 10 Plagues of Ta•na״khꞋ followed by the Yᵊtzi•ãhꞋ—intractably disproving the Christian Church's dependence on divinely supernatural "divine truth"—enforced on pain of death.

Nearly all of the arguments against the authenticity of the historical record in Ta•na״khꞋ depend upon the dearth of evidence during the LBAC (coupled with a 3-century pottery-dating error by Christian arts-degreed archaeologists that made Ta•na״khꞋ claims appear untenable)! Old-school, arts-degreed archaeologists (and more than a few impressively degreed scientists) still laboring under the Church's long-defunct threat (or their own lingering anti-Ta•na״khꞋ religious  beliefs in supernatural "divine truth"), haven't learned the axiom that absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.

Compare: Biggest Eruption Ever Recorded

For comparison, scientists attribute the greatest volcanic eruption in recorded history to Mt. Tambora (Indonesia, 1815). Mt. Tambora began rumblings, generating a black cloud, warning islanders to leave, in 1812, 3 years before it exploded. It erupted in 1815 with a VEI-7, ejecting 160–213 [km3] (38–51 [mi3]) of tephra into the atmosphere; lifting a plume of super-heated tephra and volcanic ash suspended in gases up to 45 km ([28 mi,] 148,000 ft) high—well into the stratosphere.

The explosion was heard 5 days later more than 2,600 km (1,600 mi) away.

Fortunately, but seemingly inconsistently, by the time that the ensuing Mt. Tambora tsunami crossed the Flores Sea 330 km (200 mi) north to the neighboring islands, it was only 4m (13 ft).

Despite being almost 10° south latitude, longitudinal winds spread these gases and fine ash particles in the atmosphere around the planet  where they lingered for years, causing changes in weather patterns resulting in a "volcanic winter". 1918 is known as the "year without a summer"; midsummer frosts and snows in North America and Europe, followed by loss of crops and resulting famines globally, accompanied by epidemics, recorded across northern Europe. Precipitation fluctuated wildly, from floods to droughts, causing further famines and plagues that lasted at least through 1818. There is some evidence there were also changes in sea temperatures and currents, that may have further altered future weather patterns globally.

Extensive famines and epidemics, particularly at the global level, affect the health and even the remaining composition of populations, from utero  through subsequent consecutive lifetimes. A fortiori, global famines and epidemics cause global upheavals and collapses in whole economies (especially heavily agriculturally based economies) as populations, suffering from famines and ensuing plagues, compete for survival amidst extreme scarcity of food, and resources. Scarcity of survival necessities foment wars, even changes in empires. These devastating, cumulative and enduring effects can have great effect for centuries—even permanently, forever altering the course of history and world civilizations.

Kal•lisꞋtæ, 1991 Update

Kallistæ, hypothesized pre-eruption

In 1991, scientific researchers reported the "[Kal•lisꞋtæ] eruption [was] much larger than originally believed… ranking in fact as VEI 7…

"[By comparison, the VEI-6 Krakatoa] eruption of 1883 in Indonesia created a 100-foot-high tsunami…, as well as pyroclastic flows that traveled 40 kilometers across the surface of the seas… The [Kal•lisꞋtæ] eruption would likely have generated an even larger tsunami and pyroclastic flows that traveled much farther over the surface of the sea."
