Isaiah predicted that the fortune of Egypt would depend on its relationship with Israel in the latter days. Therefore is it possible to adjust the Egyptian Chronology using the Fourth Day Chronology we have developed so far?

Consider Noah's flood. If there is an event that can leave its mark on a culture like no other it would be a global event like the flood of Noah. Fortunately there have been scientists that consider the global flood a reality and they have searched for and found evidence for it. However the same approach has not been taken by historians. They have not looked for evidence that the global flood affected the ancient cultures. If the global flood did occur could this be reflected in the history of Egypt?

Imagine the beginning of the world as the descendants of Adam and Eve begin to procreate and fill the globe. Families had to protect themselves from animals, weather and other people. Tribes, groups of families, began to form as the population grew. Tribes offered more safety than individual families. However, tribes would often fight against one another and the mightiest of the tribes would "absorb" other tribes until these "mega" tribes would form nations. So if a global flood occurred, a period of induction from the end of the flood until populations rebounded to their pre-flood levels would occur. Evidence of this would be small tribes skirmishing until they absorbed other tribes until they became large tribes. Large tribes would then battle for dominance so that they could form nations. David Rohl provides evidence of such a situation (page 14, Pharoahs and Kings). Rohl states that after the Old Kingdom's glory is followed by the first low in the history of ancient Egypt, the First Intermediate Period (the 7th through the 12th dynasties). Rohl than proposes the following scenario to explain the fracturing of the Egyptian kingdom. The fall of the great pyramid age appears to coincide with severe changes in the climate of the region. Droughts that were the results of a series of major earthquakes led to the collapse of major city-states in Canaan and the inhabitants of Canaan invade Egypt. These invaders are responsible for the fragmentation of Egypt into petty kingdoms just as was the situation prior to Egypt's unification under the first pharaoh of Egypt, Menes.

I have a different explanation for the fragmentation of Egypt into petty kingdoms. I don't believe the Egypt had been fragmented but rather the presence of these petty kingdoms indicated that Egypt's population was growing after the global flood. This can be seen be looking at Egypt's history in the first few dynasties. I believe Menes was the first king of Egypt ever. I believe Menes is one of the "mighty men of reknown", one of the first kings of the earth (Genesis 6:4) : "And there were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, the men of reknown." I believe Menes was a great warrior that was able to defeat all the tribes around him and assembly the nation of Egypt for the very first time. I believe the sudden demise of the Old Kingdom, the great pyramid age, was caused by the global flood. The droughts (caused by a change of climate due to major earthquakes) were symptoms that the earth was about to go through a dramatic change.

The global flood then occurs in the beginning of the first intermediate period and the presence of the petty kingdoms in the first intermediate period is the evidence that mankind is trying to re-establish its former population after the flood. Therefore the First Intermediate Period should not be dated 2152 B.C., but according to the Fourth Day Chronology the beginning of the First Intermediate Period should be 2313 B.C., the year of the global flood, or about 161 years earlier. If the Egyptian Chronology is shifted back 161 years the dating of Menes' reign would be corrected to the year 3081 B.C. which would be between the dates of the birth for Lamech (3095 B.C.) and Noah (2913 B.C.) according to the Fourth Day: Why the Bible is Historically Accurate chronology. This dating for Menes would make his presence consistent with the biblical appearance of the "men of renown".
