The Destruction of Mankind is an Egyptian myth that has been
found in many retellings at different times during Egyptian history. It
is pointed to as the Egyptian analogue of the Great Deluge of Noah.
There is very good reason to presume it is the original description of
the myth which Plato (or Solon) made into the end of Atlantis including
the associated war and the loss of the land. Shown above is SHU,
analogue of the Greek Atlas, who is mentioned toward the end of the
story holding up Nut (Mother Night) as being shown here.
The wording of the end of the Atlantis document of Plato does
parallel the wording at the beginning of the Destruction of Mankind:
Sekhmet as being the Eye of Ra sent out of Ra's forehead is the analogue
of Athena (=Neith) springing fullgrown out of the forehead of Zeus, and
the armed bowmen seeking to protect Ra from the blasphemous remnants of
the antediluvians are exactly the same as the Athenians (People of
Neith, or Sekhmet in this version) spoken of in the Platonic dialogues.
