The Holy Great Rift Valley

Wiki: The northernmost part of the Rift, today called the Dead Sea Transform or Rift, forms the Beqaa Valley in Lebanon separating the Lebanon Mountains and Anti-Lebanon Mountains. Further south it is known as the Hula Valley separating the Galilee mountains and the Golan Heights. The River Jordan begins here and flows southward through Lake Hula into the Sea of Galilee in Israel, then continues south through the Jordan Rift Valley into the Dead Sea on the Israeli-Jordanian border. From the Dead Sea southwards, the Rift is occupied by the Wadi Arabah, then the Gulf of Aqaba, and then the Red Sea. Off the southern tip of Sinai in the Red Sea, the Dead Sea Transform meets the Red Sea Rift which runs the length of the Red Sea. The Red Sea Rift comes ashore to meet the East African Rift and the Aden Ridge in the Afar Depression of East Africa. The junction of these three rifts is called the Afar Triple Junction.

Then about 4,300 years ago civilization in the Holy Land collapsed again. The great cities were abandoned or destroyed. Some scholars blame the Egyptians, others have pointed the finger at nomadic tribes from Syria, and still others cite environmental factors or perhaps a combination of all these causes.

I'm just posting my thoughts. It seems pretty obvious to me what's been happening in the Holy Land. The Holy Land is called the Holy Land because of the number of mind blowing things that happen there and the strength in which they occur. The terms 'Holy Land' and 'Great Rift' put together answer everything. What could possibly have happened to destroy civilisation in the Holy Land 4300 years ago? Gosh. That's a hard one. Could it have been.......hmmmm.......tectonic shifting resulting in seismic activity, namely volcanic eruptions and earthquakes? It doesn't take a genius to work it out. This is so simple it's child's play. I'll be back with more findings.
