Nothing wrong with having controversial opinions. The israel/lebanon area is interesting because of an old history, and a location in between Greece and Egypt. A diversity of opinion is a good thing.

I personally don't like Israel or the timeframe, but that timeframe has been chosen by others before. Usually 5600BC is chosen because of the Black Sea flood. Would Israel know about the Black Sea flooding?

I agree with some of your controversial points, and not on others... I even have my own controversial thoughts...
-- This term is not invented until the trojan war. I think it should read Trinaerian Sea, from the Argonaut story.

-- Following a discussion from Herodotus, Okeanos was a rain god who fills all the rivers and seas from above.

"You say that the Greeks considered that Gibraltar is narrow."
-- 90 kilometers is pretty far in my opinion.

"the Atlantic was navigable"
-- Not sure about this translation... anyways... a river makes more sense here to me than the Ocean. Hellesponte seems reasonable as well.

There are at least 2 rivers that in greek mythology change from navigable to un-navigable. One is the strymon river in the Hercules legend. Made un-navigable by Hera. Strabo also mentions the Gallus river in Phrygia, near the Hellesponte.
