Plagues of Egypt

The Plagues of Egypt at the time of the biblical Exodus have been linked to the 2nd millennium BC eruption of Thera by many writers including the renowned archaeologist Dr. Angelos Galanopoulos and more recently by Graham Philips[034]. In 1971, R.W. van Bemmelen, the Dutch geologist, suggested that the Biblical Plagues could be linked to the Theran event. Acceptance of this view clearly means that if the eruption of Thera was the inspiration behind Plato’s Atlantis story then the flooding of Atlantis cannot be connected with the biblical Deluge, which occurred much earlier than the Exodus.

However, if the inundation of Atlantis was part of the consequences of the Noachian Flood then the eruption of Thera had nothing to do with Plato’s narrative since it long preceded the Israelite sojourn in Egypt. In other words it is not possible to link Noah, the Exodus and Thera: at least one of them is unconnected to the other two.

Riaan Booysen has also sought tp link the plagues with the Theran eruption(a).

Frank Joseph contends[106][107] that the plagues were connected with the destruction of ‘Lemuria’.
