Pastors of Muppets and Masters of Puppets and other paedophiles

March 31, 2010

The GAGS on humanity , GOVERNMENTS AND GODS .Homes of cencorship and breeding grounds of evil. They are the Masters of Puppets and the Pastors of Muppets. FYI neither Adam Smith nor Karl Marx believed in governments , its people like Mussilini , Stalin , Hitler ,Franco etc and today Obama ,Bush .Brown and Blair that believed society needs a government. BUT these political authoritarian fascists learned everything from the original fascists….the Abrahamic monotheists.

Theses GAGS take the form of the New World Order (secular fascism) which pretends to be free and democratic BUT is in reality oppressive and authoritarian and Abrahamic Monotheism(religious fascism) pretends to represent spirituality and goodness BUT in reality destroys TRUE spiriuality and spreads evil . BOTH these fascist doctrines desire power and money and dominion on Earth and attracts and protects Predetory Paedophiles . BUT as the power of the church waines ,and the people no longer fear for thier immortal souls ,the voices of the victims are beginning to be heard, I am sure it is just the tip of the iceberg. Meanwhile the secular paedophiles in government still control the means of power ,and so the victims of government paedophiles are STILL SILENCED!!!

SECULAR PAEDOPHILES IN THE USA GOVERNMENT ,IT TOO GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP.

The Franklin Credit Union
Child-Sex Ring Scandal
Take Your Victim To The White House As A Guest of the GOP

Lawrence King was a 300 pound, black Republican pedophile who was in charge of the Franklin Credit Union. He was alleged to have operated a call-boy business in partnership with Harold Andersen, then publisher of the Omaha Herald, among others.

King enjoyed Republican society and took his conservative politics seriously. In 1987 he donated $25,350 to Citizens for America, an organization that arranged speaking tours around the country for Lt. Col. Oliver North.

In October 1988, King’s Franklin Community Credit Union was raided by the FBI and IRS. A month later the Treasury Department filed suit to recover the $34 million that had disappeared from Franklin’s vaults under King’s management. King became the subject of the Nebraska Senate’s investigation conducted by the specially created “Franklin Committee” to probe charges of embezzlement. In November 1988, King’s offices were raided by the FBI and $40 million was discovered missing. Within weeks, the Nebraska Senate, which initially opened the inquiry to find out where the money had gone, instead found itself questioning young adults and teenagers who said that they had been child prostitutes.  Many had been residents of Boystown – though both boys and girls were eventually involved.  Social workers and state child-care administrators accused King of running a child prostitution ring. The charges grew, with the former police chief of Omaha, the publisher of the state’s largest daily newspaper, and several other political associates of King, finding themselves accused of patronizing the child prostitution ring.
King served a 15-year federal prison sentence, but only for defrauding the Omaha-based credit union. But the magazines “Avvenimenti” of Italy and “Pronto” of Spain, among others, have charged that King’s crimes were more serious: that he ran a national child prostitution ring that serviced the political and business elite of both Republican and Democratic parties. Child victims of King’s operations charged him with participation in at least one SATANIC RITUAL MURDER of a child several years ago. The “Washington Post”, “New York Times”, “Village Voice” and “National Law Journal” covered the full range of accusations after the story broke in November of 1988. King’s money machinations were also linked to the Iran-Contra affair, and some say that King provided the CIA with information garnered from his alleged activities as a “pimp” for the high and mighty.

“Pronto”, the Barcelona-based, largest circulation weekly in Spain with 4.5 million readers, reported that the Lawrence E. King child prostitution scandal “appears to directly implicate politicos of the state of Nebraska and Washington, D.C. who are very close to the White House and George Bush himself.”

The weekly stated that Roy Stephens, a private investigator who has worked on the case and heads the MISSING YOUTH FOUNDATION, “says there is reason to believe THAT THE CIA IS DIRECTLY IMPLICATED,” and that the “FBI refuses to help in the investigation and has SABOTAGED any efforts” to get to the bottom of the story.
Stephens says that “Paul Bonacci directly accused President Bush of being implicated” in the affair when he testified before the Franklin Committee. Bonacci, who had been one of the child prostitutes, is identified by leading child-abuse experts as a well-informed, credible witness.
Lawrence King was no stranger to President Bush. And Lawrence King was no stranger to Craig Spence. Several of the Omaha child prostitutes testified that they had traveled to Washington, D.C. with King in private planes to attend political events which were followed by [CHILD] SEX PARTIES. King and Spence had much in common. Not only were they both Republican Party activists but they had gone into business together procuring prostitutes for Washington’s elite.

Bush’s name had repeatedly surfaced in the Nebraska scandal. But his name was first put into print in July 1989, a little less than a month after the Washington call boy affair had first made headlines. Omaha’s leading daily newspaper reported, “One child, who has been under psychiatric care, is said to believe she saw George Bush at one of King’s parties.”

Before his arrest, King had commuted often to Washington, D.C. He was a business partner in a call-boy operation run by the late Craig Spence, whose antics were the subject of a week-long series published by the Washington Times in July 1989. The expose was immediately occasioned by the resignation of an aide to Elizabeth Dole. In his resignation letter, the aide complained that one of Spence’s male prostitutes, had blackmailed him with threats of disclosure. The Times reported that Spence, a former ABC reporter, was said to have been running a CIA blackmail operation: Spence’s Victorian Mansion on Wyoming Avenue, where he often threw parties for Washington’s power elite, was “planted with electronic bugs and video recording equipment that, according to homosexual call-boys and others who routinely visited the house, was used to make incriminating tapes to blackmail guests.” The parties were attended by the likes of William Casey, Ted Koppel, John Mitchell and Eric Severeid. A political tempest threatened when Spence’s credit card receipts implicated Reagan and Bush appointees, but few names reached the public print.

Four months after the story broke, Spence was found dead at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Boston. Police ruled his death a suicide.

Another ramrod in the CIA’s male prostitution network was Ronald Roskens, former chancellor of the University of Nebraska. Lawrence King had been one of his closest “advisers.” Roskens was fired from the position in 1989 when his involvement in homosexual orgies was reported to the university’s board of regents and verified by them. A year later, President George Bush called Roskens to Washington to head the Agency of International Development (AID), commonly utilized as a cover in CIA operations overseas. AID also disburses $7 billion in nonmilitary foreign aid, and thus wields enormous geopolitical power.

This was really one of the biggest scandals in recent US history. The story received some newspaper coverage but there was a TV News Media blackout on the subject. For this reason, most Americans have never heard of it.

Former republican Senator John Decamp was involved in the production a documentary called “Conspiracy of Silence” that was to air May 3, 1994 on the Discovery Channel.  This documentary exposed a network of religious leaders and Washington politicians who flew children to Washington D.C. for sex orgies.  At the last minute before airing, unknown congressmen threatened the TV Cable industry with restrictive legislation if this documentary was aired.

Almost immediately, the rights to the documentary were purchased by unknown persons who had ordered all copies destroyed. Reported at least $500,000 was paid for the rights to buy and destroy it.  A copy of this videotape was furnished anonymously to former Nebraska state senator and attorney John De Camp who made it available to retired F.B.I. chief, Ted L. Gunderson.  While the video quality is not top grade, this tape is a blockbuster in what is revealed by the participants involved.   This documentary is available in rough form on Kazaa or the other P2P file sharing networks under the title “FRANKLIN CREDIT UNION COVERUP 55 Mins”.  It is a DIVX file.  The correct file size is 109,814 KB.

Prostitutes, mostly boys but some girls also,  15 years old and younger were taken to midnight tours of the White House. There are 19 more Washington Times articles in full text about this case HERE

Franklin Scandal the movie

http://www.franklinscandal.com/cos/

THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT ,POLICE AND JUDICIARY ARE ALSO FULL OF PAEDOPHILES AND THIER ENABLERS

N.S.W. Police Service and the aftermath of the Royal Commission into the NSW Police Service and Paedophilia.
Paedophilia Case Development.

The Paedophile Case detailed in this Paper has been found to have been substantiated by a judgment of the NSW District Court on Monday 18th August 1997.

(This is despite the fact that the Police Royal Commission, Certain Journalists and the NSW Police Service itself appeared to be of the view that the allegations were unsubstantiated………….serious questions may now need to be asked concerning their previous efficacy and bonafides)
http://www.smuggled.com/nswpol1.htm

Roger Caleb Rogerson (born January 3, 1941) is a controversial former detective-sergeant of the New South Wales Police Force. Rogerson was convicted of perverting the course of justice and lying to the 1999 Police Integrity Commission. He was one of its most decorated officers, having received at least 13 awards for bravery, outstanding policemanship and devotion to duty including the Peter Mitchell Trophy, the highest annual police award
Rogerson is also known for his association with other NSW detectives who are reputed to have been corrupt, including Ray “Gunner” Kelly and Fred Krahe, and with a number of organised crime figures, including Arthur “Neddy” Smith, Graham “Abo” Henry, Warren Lanfranchi, Robert Arthur “Bobby” Chapman, Paul “The Paddy” O’Halloran, John Tex Moran, and Christopher Dale Flannery. Neddy Smith was a convicted heroin dealer, rapist and armed robber who has claimed Rogerson gave him the “green light” to commit crimes in New South Wales. Henry and Lanfranchi were also heroin dealers and armed robbers, while Flannery specialised in contract killing.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Rogerson

This Royal Commission, which lasted approximately two years, uncovered crimes and institutionalised corruption throughout the NSW Police Service (as it was then known) by a large number of officers, most notably detectives. This unexpected discovery by the Royal Commission led to a widening of its terms of reference to include the investigation of paedophilia and sex crimes outside the Police Service and implicated members of the legal fraternity(including Judges). However, critics of the Royal Commission argue that it should have had a wider terms of reference, namely the New South Wales Parliament and New South Wales Criminal Justice System but considering the political ramifications that would have resulted, this did not occur

SO IT IS OBVIOUS THAT THE AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENT IS COVERING FOR PAEDOPHILES IN THE GOVERNMENT ,THE JUDICIARY AND THE POLICE FORCE!!!!!! JUST LIKE THE UK AND USA………and probably most other governments

OF COURSE YOU CAN ALWAYS TRUST THE GOVERNMENT CHILD PROTECTION AGENCY

A speech given by Nancy Schaefer on Child Protection Services The System Can Not be trusted It does not serve The People of USA

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_TcDTJlPWbE&feature=player_embedded
Nancy Schaefer and her husband were found shot to death in their homes yesterday in what police are claiming is a murder/suicide. The corporate accounts of her death do not mention her efforts to expose the CPS as part of an illicit “Franklin Affair” style child trafficking ring.With Pedophilia bringing down the once-untouchable Vatican, “Franklin Affair” style child trafficking rings everywhere are in a panic, and may be “cleaning house” where necessary.

HERE IS THE PROPER RESPONSE TO PAEDOPHILES           DRASIUS KEYDS PUBLIC HERO!!!!!

Lithuania: Father Kills Pedophile Judge and Senior Politician

A dad who shot dead a judge and a senior politician because they molested his three-year old daughter has become a national hero after going on the run in Lithuania.
Horrified Drasius Keyds, 37, gunned down the perverted pair on Monday after police turned a deaf ear to his pleas for justice for his tortured tot.
Now in hiding, Keyds has become a hero on YouTube and Facebook with hundreds of thousands of fans from all over the world pledging support.

“You are a hero to all of us,” reads one Facebook message. “What you did is nothing but justice.”

Mugs and t-shirts with his image on them have begun appearing alongside the logo “Drasius: Lone-avenger
Keyds’ nightmare began a year ago when daughter Deimantela told him about a meeting set up by his then fiancee with judge Jonas Furmanavicziusa and the Speaker of Lithuania’s parliament , Andrius Us.

The pair allegedly raped and abused the youngster who reported her ordeal to her father.

But a year long campaign for a police investigation failed when detectives told Keyds there was not enough evidence to proceed with a case.
Now the fugitive dad is being offered a safe haven in neighbouring countries like Poland
According to this blog, the Judge and the Politician were also Jewish.

THE PASTORS OF MUPPETS

A message for Abrahamic monotheists ….

REMEMBER THERE IS A BIG DIFFERENCE BETWEEN KNEELING DOWN AND BENDING OVER , AND THE CHURCH SAYS ITS BETTER TO GIVE THAN RECIEVE Ratzinger and Pedophilia in the Church

Apparently the ex-Hitler Youth ,”Singing Ratman” Ratzinger is the representative of a god that condones paedopilia. He personally protects them , his family contains them and he is just another in a long ,long line of religious predetory paedophiles and thier enablers.

Paedophilia in the church  goes all the way to the top. It has been going on for CENTURIES and it is very widespread. http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2010/03/02/the-greatest-hoax-ever-abrahamic-monotheism-is-it-really-just-satanism/

IT IS SO COMMON THE CHURCH HAS HAD PROTOCOLS ON DEALING WITH THE VICTIMS OF PAEDOPHILE PRIESTS FOR A LONG TIME

Daily Kos | April 21 2005

Ratzinger is also the author of a May 2001 letter to bishops stating that the “Crimine solicitationies” law (regarding strict secrecy in sex abuse cases) is still in effect.

The law to which Ratzinger’s letter referred was issued by Pope John XXIII 40 years ago (a link to the PDF of the document can be found in Boucher’s entry). The law itself is chilling, as it describes a mandatory condition of secrecy for both the perpetrators and victims of sexual abuse by Catholic priests.

The 69-page Latin document bearing the seal of Pope John XXIII was sent to every bishop in the world.

The instructions outline a policy of ‘strictest’ secrecy in dealing with allegations of sexual abuse and threatens those who speak out with excommunication. They also call for the victim to take an oath of secrecy at the time of making a complaint to Church officials. It states that the instructions are to `be diligently stored in the secret archives of the Curia [Vatican] as strictly confidential. Nor is it to be published nor added to with any commentaries.’

[...] Bishops are instructed to pursue these cases `in the most secretive way… restrained by a perpetual silence… and everyone… is to observe the strictest secret which is commonly regarded as a secret of the Holy Office… under the penalty of excommunication’.

Lawyers point to a letter the Vatican sent to bishops in May 2001 clearly stating the 1962 instruction was in force until then. The letter is signed by Cardinal Ratzinger, the most powerful man in Rome beside the Pope and who heads the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith – the office which ran the Inquisition in the Middle Ages.

We can believe what we wish about Benedict XVI’s youthful nationalism or lack thereof. What we do know from his letter is that as recently as 2001, he supported and encouraged the drawing of a curtain of secrecy over widespread sexual abuse by clergy. Abuse victims demand pope open files on paedophiles

THEY HAVE BEEN SILENCING VICTIMS AND PROTECTING PREDETORY PAEDOPHILES FOR A LONG TIME AS WELL

Runaway Priests Hiding in Plain Sight In the Shadow of the Vatican
Accused Clerics Serving in Rome, Heart of the Catholic Church

ROME – Pope John Paul II summoned U.S. cardinals to the Vatican two years ago, at the height of the church’s sex abuse crisis, and made a stirring pronouncement.
“People need to know,” he stressed to them, “that there is no place in the priesthood and religious life for those who would harm the young.”

Yet today, one block from the Vatican, a fugitive priest lives in a church building with rooftop views of St. Peter’s Basilica and the pope’s apartment. The Rev. Joseph Henn’s superiors have let him stay with them, even though they say he has refused their instructions to go back to Phoenix and face charges that he molested three boys.
The Rev. Joseph Henn is a U.S. fugitive wanted on 13 molestation charges. He refuses to return to Phoenix, and his order has let him stay in Rome.

A short cab ride north, the Rev. Barry Bossa, an ex-con and fugitive, has found similar sanctuary in a leafy neighborhood of sidewalk cafes and low-rise apartments. His religious bosses hastily moved him out of the United States two years ago as his criminal record and new allegations began to emerge.

Here in the heart of Catholicism, church leaders are giving refuge to priests who face allegations of sexual abuse in other countries. The Dallas Morning News located the men – some of them admitted abusers – as part of a yearlong investigation into the global movements of accused priests.

Some are stationed in the comfort of their religious orders’ world headquarters. One strolls by St. Peter’s Square en route to his job. Another leads English-language tours at ancient church burial grounds. And until recently, one man was serving his house arrest across the street from the Vatican.
Dr. Navarro-Valls previously declined to comment on The News’ investigation, which found more than 200 accused priests, brothers and other Catholic workers hiding across international borders and living in unsuspecting communities, often with the church’s support. About 30 of the men were wanted by law enforcement in another country.

The Vatican has long refused to address why it has not acted on numerous abuse complaints made against a close ally of the pope, the Rev. Marcial Maciel, the revered founder and leader of the Legion of Christ order in Rome.

The Vatican continued to employ an acknowledged abuser as a foreign diplomat. The Vatican had promoted the Rev. Daniel Pater despite his 1995 financial settlement with an Ohio victim and two warnings from Monsignor Breslin. Then in late 2002, it moved him up again, this time to temporarily run the papal embassy in India. He stepped down last year, as The News was preparing a story about the case.

And the Vatican has kept former Boston Cardinal Bernard Law, the U.S. church leader most associated with protecting priests, on several decision-making panels and recently gave him a job leading a historic Roman basilica.

 Rev. James Tully navigated his way past tourists in St. Peter’s Square without interruption and headed for a yellow Vatican postal box on the side of St. Peter’s Basilica, where the pope regularly blesses the faithful. Father Tully dropped in a couple of letters, then walked on to a nearby bus stop. Father Tully, who declined to be interviewed, was moved to Rome two years ago, about a month after he was accused of sexual misconduct for the third time.

A few miles south of the Vatican, the Rev. Richard Mataconis works as an English-language guide at the Catacombs of St. Callistus, a popular stop for Catholics visiting Rome. He mingles with the adults and children on his tours, talking them through the ancient burial sites of popes and Catholic martyrs.Father Mataconis was sued two years ago by two men who accused him of abusing them in the 1970s at the New York junior seminary they attended. The suit ultimately was dismissed because the men had missed the deadline for filing a legal claim.

By Philip Pullella
VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Victims of sexual abuse by priests demonstrated at the Vatican on Thursday demanding that Pope Benedict open up files on paedophile Catholic clerics worldwide and immediately defrock all “predator priests.”

The demonstration came as a leading cardinal denounced what he called a “conspiracy” to discredit the Catholic Church and said he could understand why some bishops hushed up cases of paedophilia so as not to harm the Church’s good name.

Four leaders of the U.S.-based Survivor Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP), all of whom were sexually abused by priests, including being raped and sodomised, held up photos of themselves as children and signs reading “Stop the Secrecy Now.”

“I would ask the pope if he would please open up the files from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith and turn over all the information to the police,” said Barbara Blaine, the president of SNAP.

She was referring to the Department once headed by the pope when he was a cardinal, which judges cases of sexual abuse.

“I would also ask him to make a public order to all bishops across the globe that all predator priests must be removed from ministry immediately,” she said minutes before police took away the SNAP leaders’ passports and led them away for questioning.

A scandal of alleged cover-ups of sexual abuse of children by priests has been convulsing the Roman Catholic Church in Europe with even more intensity than a similar one that hit the United States eight years ago.

But this time it has come perilously close to the pope himself as victims groups have said they want to know how he handled cases before his election in 2005

PAEDOPHILIA IS WIDESPREAD IN THE CHURCH ,UK ,USA , GERMANY , AUSTRIA , NETHERLANDS ,IRELAND , SPAIN , SWITZERLAND , BRAZIL ,MEXICO ,CUBA ETC ,ETC

The Catholic church and paedophilia

Crimes and sins
The pope should say plainly and loudly that sexual abuse of children is not just sinful. It is criminal
Mar 18th 2010 | From The Economist print edition

IT COULD hardly get worse. Sex scandals are breaking over the Catholic church with such fury (see article) that the Vatican has felt bound to defend Pope Benedict XVI himself. Children at some Catholic schools in Germany have been systematically abused; paedophiles were transferred to other jobs, rather than dismissed or prosecuted. Abuse has surfaced in Austria and the Netherlands. In Ireland Cardinal Sean Brady, the primate, has admitted that he was present in 1975 when two teenage boys were persuaded to sign oaths of silence about their abuse by Father Brendan Smyth. The church defrocked Smyth, but nobody, including Cardinal Brady, told the police about his crimes and he remained free to abuse boys for two decades.

Yet denial still reigns. Bishop Christopher Jones, head of the Irish episcopate’s committee on family affairs, has complained that the church is being singled out, when most abuse happens inside families and other organisations. “Why this huge isolation of the church and this huge focus on cover-up in the church when it has been going on for centuries?” he asked.

He is right that other secretive outfits (orphanages in authoritarian countries, say) are home to shameful abuse, but that misses the point.

PAEDOPHILIA IS SO WIDESPREAD IN THE CHURCH ,PAYING DAMAGES IS BANKRUPTING THE CHURCH AND CLOSING DIOSESES 

From The Times April 16, 2008

Pope’s ‘shame’ over paedophile priests

Pope Benedict XVI said yesterday that he was “deeply ashamed” over the sexual abuse committed by Catholic priests in the US and vowed to keep paedophiles out of the Church.

The Pope, answering questions on board his flight to Washington, addressed one of the toughest issues facing him on his US visit: the sex scandals that arose in 2002 and which forced the country’s Roman Catholic Church to pay more than $2 billion (£1 billion) in abuse settlements.

The Pope’s visit was the first by a pontiff to the US since the scandal erupted. Six US dioceses have declared bankruptcy in recent years because of its financial toll.

In February 2004 US bishops issued a report on abuse of children by priests stretching over 52 years, beginning in 1950. It found that 10,667 people had accused priests of child sexual abuse between 1950 and 2002.

In January 2002 The Boston Globe reported that 130 people had been abused by John Geoghan, a former priest, over three decades.

IT GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP .THE POPE AND HIS BROTHER ARE DIRECTLY INVOLVED IN PROTECTING PAEDOPHILES

Pope accused of mishandling case of German paedophile priest Cardinal Ratzinger copied into memo transferring known paedophile to German Catholic parish where abuse continued, claims US paper
John Hooper in Rome and Stephen Bates guardian.co.uk, Friday 26 March 2010 11.36 GMT

Fresh revelations have been made directly implicating Pope Benedict XVI in mishandling the case of a paedophile priest in his former archdiocese of Munich.

According to the New York Times, the then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was copied in on a memo from his deputy in which the priest was transferred to parish duties in Bavaria that brought him into contact with children. As a result of that decision by the then vicar-general, Father Gerhard Gruber, the priest was able to continue abusing boys, for which he was later tried and convicted.

Father Peter Hullerman, who was known to be a paedophile, was originally moved to Munich to allow him to undergo therapy. The future pope attended a meeting in January 1980 at which the transfer was agreed, the New York Times reported today. The paper said the reason for the priest’s transfer was clear, even though not explicitly stated.

The allegations come a day after the Vatican responded angrily to the allegation that as a cardinal the pope had ignored an American diocese’s request that another predatory priest should be defrocked. Hullermann had been removed from his previous parish in September 1980 and did not deny the allegations made against him. Correspondence at the end of that year referred to a formal request that he should be transferred for psychiatric treatment in Munich.
Although sexual abuse of boys was not explicitly mentioned in the letter from Essen, it stated:

“Reports from the congregation in which he was last active made us aware that Chaplain Hullermann presented a danger that caused us to immediately withdraw him from pastoral duties.” It warned of possible legal action but suggested that Hullermann could teach religion “at a girls’ school”.

A report, drawn up by one of Ratzinger’s closest colleagues before the meeting, stated that a young chaplain needed “medical-psychotherapeutic treatment in Munich” and a place to live with “an understanding colleague”. It presented the priest from Essen as a “very talented man, who could be used in a variety of ways”. As soon as he arrived, however, Hullermann was placed in a parish where he continued to abuse boys before being convicted six years later.

The suggestion that the pope was more closely involved in the case than previously suggested followed allegations that while he was head of the congregation in Rome in the mid-1990s, he acceded to a plea from an American priest, Father Lawrence Murphy, not to be disciplined or defrocked for abusing as many as 200 deaf boys at a school where the chaplain taught between 1950 and 1974. Murphy died a few months later and there have been allegations that earlier bishops in his US diocese had ignored the complaints against him and that the diocese tried to hush the matter up.

The pope has apologised for the way the church handled allegations without accepting any personal responsibility for his actions in Munich nor during his 24 years as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in Rome. But the accusations are getting closer to him all the time.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2010/mar/26/pope-accused-priest-sex-abuse-germany

Rev. Lawrence C. Murphy at a school for the deaf in Wisconsin is the epitome of the corruption and power of the Catholic Church. For years, he sexually abused little boys. Little boys that were deaf.Little boys that couldn’t communicate like everyone else.

According to an excerpt in the NY Times, the boys reported the abuse to every type of official they could think of that he was a danger, according to the victims and church documents.

They told other priests. They told three archbishops of Milwaukee. They told two police departments and the district attorney. They used sign language, written affidavits and graphic gestures to show what exactly Father Murphy had done to them. But their reports fell on the deaf ears of hearing people.
http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/2831900/the_catholic_church_and_sex_abuse.html?cat=34

The Vatican has long refused to address why it has not acted on numerous abuse complaints made against a close ally of the pope, the Rev. Marcial Maciel, the revered founder and leader of the Legion of Christ order in Rome.

The accusers say Vatican-based Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, who heads the Vatican office to safeguard the faith and the morals of the church, quietly made the lawsuit go away and shelved it. There was no investigation and the accusers weren’t asked a single question or asked for a statement. He was appointed by the pope to investigate the entire sex abuse scandal in the church in recent days. But when approached by ABCNEWS in Rome last week with questions of allegations against Maciel, Ratzinger became visibly upset and actually slapped this reporter’s hand. “Come to me when the moment is given,”Ratzinger told ABCNEWS, “not yet.” “Cardinal Ratzinger is sheltering Maciel, protecting him,” said Berry, who expressed concerns that no response was being given to the allegations against the man charged with sex abuse.

Church abuse scandal reaches pope’s brother
VATICAN CITY – Church abuse scandals in Germany have reached the older brother of Pope Benedict XVI and are creeping ever closer to the pontiff himself.
Benedict, 82, was archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1982 when he was brought to the Vatican to head the body responsible for investigating abuse cases. During that time, he came under criticism for decreeing that even the most serious abuse cases must first be investigated internally.
Separately, the Regensburg Diocese told AP it will investigate allegations of physical and sexual abuse that have swirled around a renowned choir led by the Benedict’s brother, the Rev. Georg Ratzinger. So far, the sex abuse allegations predate Georg Ratzinger’s term as choir director.

Sexual Abuse Suit Names Priest, Archdiocese

(Updated)Sitting before the news cameras in his lawyer’s downtown New Haven office, Brooks Thopsey relived a painful moment 20 years earlier, inside a church. He was lifting his arms, changing into his altar boy’s robe, when a priest he and his family had trusted made a direct frontal sexual attack on him, he said.

Thopsey (pictured) recalled the tale Wednesday morning during a press conference to announce that he has filed a a civil suit against the former pastor of St. Theresa’s Church in Trumbull, John Castaldo. Also named as defendants are the Roman Catholic Diocese of Bridgeport and its former bishops, including Edward Egan, since promoted to Archbishop of New York.

SO MUCH FOR THE INFALIBLE CHURCH AND ITS INFALIBLE POPE

The Infallibility of the Church is the belief that the Holy Spirit will not allow the Church to err in its belief or teaching under certain circumstances. This belief is held by the Catholic Church, but is also held in certain degrees by the Eastern Orthodox churches, and some other Christian denominations.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infallibility_of_the_Church
Papal infallibility is the dogma in Roman Catholic theology that, by action of the Holy Spirit, the Pope is preserved from even the possibility of error[1] when he solemnly declares or promulgates to the universal Church a dogmatic teaching on faith or morals as being contained in divine revelation, or at least being intimately connected to divine revelation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papal_infallibility

The Fallibility of the Infallible Pope
Allegations that Pope Benedict XVI may have had detailed knowledge about instances of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church continue to mount. In 1996, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which he then led, decided not to punish the pedophile priest Father Lawrence Murphy. With his authority eroded, why does he even remain in office?

When is it time for a pope to resign? Margaret Kässmann, the former head of the Protestant Church in Germany, stepped down in February upon deciding that she no longer had the necessary moral authority for her office after being caught driving drunk. But how much authority does Pope Benedict XVI still enjoy?

The net is closing around pope Benedict XVI

Now that it has been revealed that the pope failed to act against the sexual abuse by clerics when he could have, he has become part of the problem.

The Dutch archbishop, Johannes Simonis, appeared on national television this week to argue that the Dutch Catholic Church had been ignorant of the massive sexual abuse that had taken place within its ranks over the last few decades. If there is one single Roman Catholic prelate who could not argue the same, it is pope Benedict XVI. Archbishop Simonis demonstrated a shocking naiveté by his choice of words. “Wir haben es nicht gewusst,” he said, German for “we didn’t know”. This phrase recalls the excuse German citizens used after the war to explain their failure to prevent atrocities committed by the Nazi regime.

Benedict XVI Harboring Sexual Predators in Scranton

NEVERMIND ASKING THE POPE TO RESIGN , WE SHOULD JUST SHUTDOWN THE THE VATICAN . THE VATICAN HAS ALWAYS BEEN A DEN OF VICE AND CORRUPTION AND SEXUAL PERVERSION. HQ FOR EVIL ON EARTH.

PREVIOUS PASTORS OF MUPPETS

The Invention of “Judaic Christianity” arrives in Europe c.800AD. Genocide and religious intolerance are institutionalised ,and disease follows it.

Charlemagne (pronounced /’??rl?me?n/; Latin: Carolus Magnus or Karolus Magnus, meaning Charles the Great) (2 April 742 – 28 January 814) was King of the Franks from 768 to his death. He expanded the Frankish kingdoms into a Frankish Empire that incorporated much of Western and Central Europe. During his reign, he conquered Italy and was crowned Imperator Augustus by Pope Leo III on 25 December 800 as a rival of the Byzantine Emperor in Constantinople .He also campaigned against the peoples to his east, especially the Saxons, and after a protracted war subjected them to his rule. By forcibly converting them to Christianity.In 780 Charlemagne decreed the death penalty for all Saxons who failed to be baptised, who failed to keep Christian festivals.The laws were draconian on religious issues, and the indigenous forms of Germanic polytheism were gravely threatened by Christianisation. In response, at Verden in Lower Saxony, Charlemagne allegedly ordered the beheading of 4,500 Saxons who had been caught practising their native paganism after conversion to Christianity, known as the Massacre of Verden. The massacre triggered three years of renewed bloody warfare (783-785). During this war the Frisians (Pagan)were also finally subdued

Historian Will Durant refers to the period from 867 – 1049 as the “nadir of the papacy”.The Pornokratie (‘pornocracy’) and Hürenregiment (‘rule of the harlots’)

Pope John XII (Octavian, c. 937–964, pope 955–964, The Popes, A Concise Biographical History, ibid., pp. 166-7) was another in the succession of impious popes and he opened his in glorious career by invoking pagan gods and goddesses as he flung the dice in gambling sessions. He toasted Satan during a drinking spree and put his notorious mistress/prostitute Marcia in charge of his brothel in the Lateran Palace (A n t a p o d o s i s, ibid.).

Pope Benedict IX deserves special mention. His name was Grottaferrata Teofilatto (Theophylact, in some records) and in 1032 he won the murderous scramble for the wealth of the papacy. He immediately excommunicated leaders who were hostile to him and quickly established a reign of terror. He officially opened the doors of “the palace of the popes” to homosexuals and turned it into an organised and profitable male brothel (The Lives of the Popes in the Early Middle Ages, Horace K. Mann, Kegan Paul, London,1925)

Pope Leo IX (b. 1002, d. 1054) was an unscrupulous adventurer who spent his pontificate touring Europe with a quota of armed knights and left the world worse than he found it. The church called him “Lapsi” (lapsed), coyly admitting that “he defected from the faith…he fell away by actually offering sacrifice to the false gods (t h u r i f i c a t i)…it is not known why he recanted his religion” (Catholic Encyclopedia, Pecci ed., iii, p. 117)

As early as 1119, for example, the locals revolted against Pope Gelasius II (1118–19), who fled to Gaeta in southern Italy by rowing down the River Tiber in a dinghy. As he escaped, the angry crowd ran along the river’s edge, hurling stones, arrows and foul abuse at the rapidly disappearing pope.

To avoid impending charges of murder, Pope Calixtus II (1119–24) desecrated the alleged tomb of St Peter and fled to Constantinople with “silver panels from the doors”, “thick plates of gold” that had covered the altars and “a solid gold statue” (AHistory of the Popes, McCabe, op. cit.).

Similarly, Pope Gregory VIII (1187) was so hated for his crime of blinding his opponents (as was Pope Adrian III, 884–85) that the locals tied him backwards on a camel and paraded him through the streets of Rome, screaming vulgarities at him and pelting him with rocks until he was dead (Diderot’sEncyclopédie).

For a total period exceeding 240 years between 1119 and 1445, popes were regularly and forcibly evicted from Rome, reigning variously in Avignon, Anagni, Orvieto, Viterbo,Siena, Florence, Pisa and Perugia.

In 1309, under the papacy of Clement V (1305–14; Bertrand de Got, 1264–1314), the Romans expressed so much displeasure at papal criminality that the whole Christian bureaucracy was physically evicted from Rome to the city of Avignon in southern France. He is memorable in history for suppressing the order of the Templars, and as the Pope who moved the Roman Curia to Avignon – although, as a matter of fact, he moved the Roman Curia to Carpentras – in 1309, after staying four years in Poitiers

From 1309 to 1377, the pope resided not in Rome but in Avignon (see Avignon Papacy). The Avignon Papacy was notorious for greed and corruption

Petrarch described the papal court at Avignon as “boiling, seething, obscene, terrible…a fountain of dolour where Jesus Christ is mocked, where sesterce [money] is adored, where honesty is called foolishness and cunning called wisdom…all this you may see heaped up there” (Letter Var. VII). “raged like a moral pestilence…a school of falsity, and a temple of heresy””…swept along in a flood of the most obscene pleasure, an incredible storm of debauch, the most horrible and unprecedented shipwreck of chastity.

The last recorded pope to be evicted from Rome was Eugenius IV (1431–47), who spent most of his nine-year exile living in the brothels of Naples (Diderot’s Encyclopédie).

Pope Sixtus IV (1471 to 1484)drafted plans for the nunneries to become “brothels filled with the choicest prostitutes, lean with fasting, but full of lust” (A History of the Popes, op. cit.; also similar descriptions of the nunneries centuries earlier are in the Annals of Hildesheim, c.890).

Various antipopes challenged papal authority, especially during the Western Schism (1378 – 1417). In this schism, the papacy had returned to Rome from Avignon, but an antipope was installed in Avignon, as if to extend the papacy there.Installed by the French King as a puppet,but worse was to come for the popes.

An antipope (Latin: antipapa) is a person who, in opposition to a sitting Bishop of Rome, makes a widely accepted claim to be the Pope

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-pope

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anti-pope#List_of_historical_antipopes

Pope Leo X said to the clergy: ‘When Jesus the Son of Man shall come to the seat of our Majesty, say first of all,’Friend, wherefore art Thou come hither? And if He gives you naught in silver or gold, cast Him forth into outer darkness.’” (A History of the Popes, Dr Joseph McCabe, ibid., vol. 2,chapter on “The Age of Power”)

Since it was standard procedure for Romans to drag statues of a pope through the mud after the pope’s death, pope Adrian VI (1522–23), issued a bull declaring the practice illegal. After looting his wine cellar in response, the Roman populace laughed him out of existence. He died on 14 September 1523,
A bastard child of the great Florentine family, made the highest bid and he became Pope Clement VII (1523–34). Under his papacy, Rome fell again in 1527.

In 1514 AD in Rome “people were rejoicing that the papacy and the Church had come to an end”(O f the Five Plagues of the Church , op. cit.)

Pope Boniface VIII “There was no Jesus Christ and the Eucharist is just flour and water. Mary was no more a virgin than my own mother, “(A History of the Popes,McCabe, ibid.)

Pope Alexander VI “Almighty God! How long will this superstitious sect of Christians,and this upstart invention, endure?”

Pope Leo X “How well we know what a profitable superstition this fable of Christ has been for us and our predecessors.”

RELIGIOUS FASCISM JOINS WITH POLITICAL FASCISM

Pope Pius IX (1846-1878), the last ruler of the Papal States, claimed that after Rome was annexed he was a “Prisoner in the Vatican”. This situation was resolved on 11 February 1929 between the Holy See and the Kingdom of Italy.The treaty was signed by Benito Mussolini. Religious facism joins Political facism .

THE  VATICAN RAN THE NAZI ESCAPE “RATLINES”

Ratlines were systems of escape routes for Nazis and other fascists fleeing Europe at the end of World War II. These escape routes mainly led toward havens in South America, particularly Argentina,Paraguay, Brazil, and Chile.

One ratline, made famous by the Frederick Forsyth thriller The Odessa File, was run by the ODESSA (Organisation der ehemaligen SS-Angehörigen; “Organization of Former SS-Members”) network organized by Otto Skorzeny

The origins of the first ratlines are connected to various developments in Vatican-Argentine relations before and during World War II. As early as 1942, Monsignor Luigi Maglione contacted Ambassador Llobet, inquiring as to the “willingness of the government of the Argentine Republic to apply its immigration law generously, in order to encourage at the opportune moment European Catholic immigrants to seek the necessary land and capital in our country”

Spain, not Rome, was the “first center of ratline activity that facilitated the escape of Nazi fascists”, although the exodus itself was planned within the Vatican. Charles Lescat, a French Catholic member of Action Française and Pierre Daye, a Belgian with contacts in the Spanish government, were among the primary organizers. Lescat and Daye were the first able to flee Europe, with the help of French cardinal Eugene Tisserant and Argentine cardinal Antonio Caggiano .

By 1946, there were probably hundreds of war criminals in Spain, and thousands of former Nazis and fascists. According to US Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, Vatican cooperation in turning over asylum-seekers was “negligible”. According to Phayer, Pius XII “preferred to see fascist war criminals on board ships sailing to the New World rather than seeing them rotting in POW camps in zonal Germany”

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS DO NOT LET THEM NEAR YOUR CHILDREN !!!!!! BUT WHAT DO YOU EXPECT ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISMIS JUST ORIGINAL FASCISM.

BUT what do you expect from an INVENTED RELIGION. Invented purely for material power purposes. Judaism was Egyptian SET worship converted to Zoroastrianism by Cyrus the Great . Cyrus the Great was the (first and the ) last messiah and temple builder. He was making a buffer state for the Persian Empire. The Egyptians and Hittites had done the same thing before him.

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-judaism/

Christianity was invented by Emperor  Constantine .It was the Roman Unified Religion joining Western and Eastern Roman Empires. Thus Hesus (Western Empire Druidic god) and Krishna (Eastern Empire Hindu god) where mereged and VOTED into existance in c.325 AD at the first council of Niceae (Hesus Krishna exists 161 votes to 157) Constantines religious book was the New Testament and his base was to be Constantinople. The Bi-Ble (2 books or 2 bulls) and a “Jewish” Jesus Christ was a later Byzantine invention .

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-christianity/

Islam was invented from heretical messianic Judaism ,Nestorian and Ebonite priests that had failed in a bid to control the Byzantine Empire. They brought thier beliefs to Arabia and converted the local Quyrsh Moon worshippers BY FORCE. A force that would keep rolling through Arabia ,Africa and Europe bringing slavery and book burners and religious intolerance with them.

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-islam/

Abrahamic monotheism is original fascism ,one god , one empire ,one emperor. Its an invention and a belief system for SLAVES!  All 3 claim to worship the same all powerful god. So either this god does NOT EXIST OR YOU are really PISSING OFF THE REAL GOD by following this belief OR this one god is in fact THE FALLEN ONE (god of lies , deciet ,material wealth , sexual perversion etc) and all this death and suffering is just his will. We just have to look at the “Holy Land” to see the “will” of this god. Ignorant , biggoted , murderous and hell bent on blowing up the world to bring “thier god” to Earth and his rule for a 1000 years……BUT wasn’t that the plot to Conan the Barbarian?

REMEMBER IF YOU TOLERATE THESE GODS AND GOVERNMENTS ,THEN YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE NEXT

YOU WANT PAEDOPHILES RUNNING YOUR LIFE ,KEEP OBEYING THE GOVERNMENT AND PRAISING GOD!

The Greatest Hoax ever Abrahamic Monotheism ,….is it really just Satanism?

March 2, 2010

A REPLY TO MY ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTIC CRITICS
Let me say ,just because you believe in Abrahamic monotheism does not make you evil.BUT as an idea like any other, socialism or capitalism or space time reletivity,Abrahamic monotheism has been a disaster for humanity. It  justifys genocide biggotry and theft and stops free progressive thoughts and has replaced the idea of a future of limitless possibilities ,with an End Of Days self annilation philiosphy and has disconnected us from the planets natural cycles.

This Abrahamic monotheism is a DEATH CULT ,its symbols of the star (Judaism) and moon(Islam) are symbols of night ,not the day and the sun ,and the cross(Christian) represents a death and torture device ,a preversion of the Egyptian Ankh ,a symbol of life and the joining of male and female. Abrahamic monotheism raises the male above the female instead of the natural equality of the sexes . Abrahamic monotheism is just original fascism
In response Jewish ,Christian and Islamic have called me names and some have even threatened me,they question MY sourses BUT THIER SOURSES are unquestionable,its the “word of god” you know!? OR that’s what THEY believe, even though ALL 3 versions cannot be the word of god,unless this god has a mutliple personality disorder and this god believes the earth is flat , the sun revolves around the earth and the sky sits on 4 pillars.It would seem this god tells lies.He also seems to hire preverts to do his PR.
STILL NO ONE HAS CHALLENGED THE FACTS!!! They just called me names and sling mud
To these TRUE BELIEVERS …YOU have ME confused with someone that gives a DAMN!

THANKS TO SCIENCE AND ARCHEOLOGY AND DNA THIS IS WHAT WE KNOW TODAY!

Judaism was Egyptian SET worship from the Hyksos Pharoahs that where expelled from Egypt. They where converted to Zoroastrian monotheism by the Persian Emperor Cyrus the Great who became the Messiah and ordered the building of the temple.He was making a buffer state for his Persian Empire

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-judaism/

Emperor Constantine invented a Unified Roman Religion to unite his Western and Eastern Roman empires.It was based on Persian ,Egptian monotheistic sun worship with Druidic and Greek philosophy .Its book was the New Testament ,its capital Constantinople.The Bi-ble (2 books or 2 bulls) and messianic Judaism is a later Byzantine invention http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-christianity/

Islam is pagan Quraysh moon worship converted to messianic Judaism by “heretical” Abrahamic monotheists. http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-islam/

AN EXAMPLE OF MONOTHEISTIC LOGIC
A special response to Mr R and Mr Al C ,Abrahamic monotheists ,Islam branch.
These people read my blogs and then bad mouth me on OTHER comment sections Two typical Abrahamic monotheists.
I take it you guys are not Sunni Muslims, judging by the amount of Shi’ite you talk!!!
Mr R says I must be a Zionist disinformation agent and a Son Of a Bitch!?!
Mr R is delusional,or suffering from a combination of limited intelect and infinite indoctrination, or an average Abrahamic Monotheist.They just ain’t that bright, Abrahamic monotheism does NOT encourage free thinking.
As a typical Abrahamic monotheist he “thinks” anyone who does not believe in Islam is a Zionist Jew or a Christian crusader!Talk about narrow minded and delusional!
Well Mr R could you explain some of my posts ,if I am zionist agent

I’m NOT a Christian Zionist either……..
http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-christianity/

IN FACT ALL ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS ARE ZIONIST SHILLS,HOW AND WHY?…..

Well apart from Christianity and Islam just being paganism preverted by messianic Judaism for purely material greed and power lust purposes , your belief in this Abrahamic god gives ISRAEL STRENGTH.Mr R YOU brought up the “Islamic issue” on a blog about the Nightmare of Zionism! I never posted a link to my Islamic posts ,YOU DID!!! Thus YOU turned a blog on Zionism into a debate on whether Mohammed was a bandit or not! I also noticed MY comments where being REMOVED!!!!ON MY SITE they will not be removed!

FYI Mr.R  If you where more PLO and secular/atheist , you would not even give the “gods real estate deal with the Jews” a second thought. YOU WOULD LAUGH AT THEM AND SAY “ARE YOU SERIOUS!!!!!!!YOU believe in primitive tribal barbaric old men in the sky that do real estate deals.NOT ME!

FYI
HAMAS was setup by Mossad to break the power of the secular PLO who where doing a very effective job of uniting and freeing Palestine at the time! Secular politics will nullify Israel’s right to exist! Religious politics will strengthen it!
YOU believe in Islam and that Mohammed was some benign prophet of an Abrahamic”Jewish”monotheist god.
FYI
THE VAST MAJORITY OF HUMANITY DO NOT BELIEVE THIS!!!!!!!Get used to this FACT! and RESPECT IT!!!!If YOU cannot grasp this concept YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM NOT THE SOLUTION!!
IF YOU ARE NOT WORKING FOR THE ZIONISTS ,I WOULD RECOMMEND YOU APPLY!!OR MAYBE YOU ARE JUST THAT DUMB!

MORE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTIC HYPOCRACY
Mr R and Mr Al C .. as typical Abrahamic monotheists ,expect EVERYONE to respect THEIR narrow minded primitive tribal beliefs BUT THEY are on blog sites everyday bad mouthing other peoples narrow minded tribal beliefs. YOU ARE HYPOCRITES!
ALSO the primitive barbaric tribal beliefs THEY bad mouth are IN FACT the SAME GOD and SAME STORIES THEY BELIEVE!!!!! It seems THEIR powers of comprehension are useless as well.
THEY give it out ,BUT THEY cannot take it! But THEY are NO different from the Christian and Judaic wings of Abrahamic monotheism.
WHAT ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM DOES!
Mr R suggests that if I continue in MY BELIEFS (and I believe Mohammed was a lot worse than JUST a bandit) and I believe that Islam(and ALL Abrahamic Monotheism)was an invention and has been a mental disease that afflicts humanity, that I will probably be MURDERED BY A MUSLIM FANATIC!!!
ON THIS WE CAN AGREE!
PERSONAL EXPERIENCE OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM
JUDAIC ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM
Zionist Jewish terrorists tried to murder my grandfather during the British Mandate of Palestine.
In general Judaism is the reason for mass murder,theft and suffering in the middle east.
CHRISTIAN ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM
I have a friend who still suffers from the effects of sexual abuse of “Christian” priests. These paedophiles where protected by this belief system and they still are today!
Christianity in general destroyed my native culture and committed genocide on the native European populations. They did the same everywhere they went.
ISLAMIC ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM
MY youngest child’s friend is Levre Van Gogh, his father Theo Van Gogh , was murdered by ISLAMIC FUNDAMENTALISTS for criticising Islam.
Van Gogh worked with writer Ayaan Hirsi Ali to produce the film Submission, which was critical of the treatment of women in Islam. On 2 November 2004 he was assassinated by Mohammed Bouyeri, a Dutch-Moroccan Muslim.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theo_van_Gogh_(film_director)
ISLAM brought the joys of SLAVERY AND CONQUEST to Europe for over a thousand years. They destroyed the Great library of Alexandria (so did the Christian Abrahamic monotheists) and vandalized the Great Pyramid of Giza. They are still blowing up Buddhas etc today!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barbary_corsairs

THE BENEFITS OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM
Mr R and Mr Al C go on about Islam ending slavery?! THIS IS A COMPLETE LIE ,Islam spread slavery!! ISLAM HELPING WOMENS RIGHTS ,ANOTHER COMPLETE LIE!!! AND STOPPING INFACTCIDE , and the CRUSADES etc.etc ALL LIES ,ALL BOLLOCKS!!!!
MEANWHILE IN REALITY!!!!!
HISTORICALLY The CELTIC people NEVER practiced slavery ,we where only the victims of it! For example Islamic African slave traders,Barbary pirates,they engaged in Razzias, raids on European coastal towns, to capture slaves to sell at slave markets in places such as Algeria and Morocco.
Pirates destroyed thousands of French, Spanish, Italian and British ships, and long stretches of coast in Spain and Italy were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants, discouraging settlement until the 19th century. From the 16th to 19th century, pirates captured an estimated 800,000 to 1.25 million Europeans as slavesSlavery was a Jewish Islamic African trade, it still is. The American slave trade was a Jewish organised racket using African Islamic slave markets.

The Muslim powers of Iberia both raided for slaves and purchased slaves from European merchants, often the Jewish Radhanites, one of the few groups that could easily move between the Christian and Islamic worlds.Who Brought the Slaves to America?

OUR PAGAN CELTIC WOMEN have ALWAYS been equal members of Celtic society,Queens ,Prietesses and female warriors are common in Celtic culture.BUT NOT ISLAMIC OR ANY ABRAHAMIC CULTURES, where women are second class citizens,and I’m sure a Burka is very liberating! I dare YOU to get a free thinking Scottish woman to wear one! She’ll kick your bitchy little ass and all without gods help!!!
INFANTCIDE was not practiced in Celtic society, in fact there where LAWS banning the practice .CELTS used to look down ours noses at the Romans for this practice!
The CRUSADES ,CELTS never went on crusade! Its was the FRANKS! WHY? well the Franks had been fighting off ISLAMIC INVADERS IN EUROPE FOR CENTURIES!!! ISLAM INVADED EUROPE FIRST!!!! So don’t BLUB to ME about the crusades ISLAM STARTED THEM and payback’s a bitch!!!and BOTH sides worshipped the same Abrahamic monotheistic god and DID THESE DEEDS IN HIS NAME!
SO WHAT BENEFITS DO YOU SEE ISLAM BRINGING TO SCOTLAND, ANCIENT OR MODERN?
ISLAM HAS NO RELEVANCE TO ME OR MY PEOPLE!!!!! I have read it.CAN YOU SAY THE SAME FOR CELTIC KNOWLEDGE?

I SEE NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS you are all a bunch of intolerant bigotted murderers and liars.
What is the difference between YOU believing that its OK to murder non-believers that insult Mohammed, and the Zionist that thinks its OK to kill those that oppose HIS version of Abrahamic monotheism and gods real estate deal? OR the born again Christian that thinks they are doing god’s work in the middle east and those that die deserve it because they oppose THIER version of Abrahamic monotheism?
If you still believe in Solomon “the Santa Claus for Hebrews” that lived in his fortress of solitude somewhere in the Middle East.
OR that Joshua(aka Jesus) Christ was walking around the Levant raising the dead and walking on water.
OR that Mohammad was looting and beheading in the name of god ,whom he talked too regularly!!!!!

THEN YOU ARE EITHER ILL INFORMED AND HAVE NOT GIVEN THIS TOPIC MUCH THOUGHT
OR
YOU ARE DELUSIONAL!!!
IF YOU ARE WILLING TO HURT AND KILL PEOPLE FOR THIS BELIEF
YOU ARE NO BETTER THAN A MAD DOG!!!
THIS DELUSIONAL MENTAL DISORDER is NOT restricted to the religious,but the secular version is less deadly.
What is the difference between YOU and the secular couch potato that thinks his US/UK government is in the middle east spreading freedom and democracy and those that disagree are conspiracy theorists?
OH YES I KNOW…THE SECULAR COUCH POTATO WILL NOT TRY AND KILL YOU FOR YOUR BELIEF!!!!!(probably because he cannot blame god for it,BECAUSE HE IS NOT DELUSIONAL,just lazy and ignorant)
How many free thinkers have been burnt at the stake by Abrahamic monotheists compared to how many Abrahamic monotheists been burnt by free thinkers
IMHO This is what ALL Abrahamic monotheists suffer from….A DELUSIONAL DISORDER …any of this sound familiar to you?

A person with delusional disorder may be high functioning in daily life and may not exhibit odd or bizarre behavior aside from these delusions. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) defines six subtypes of the disorder characterized as erotomanic, grandiose, jealous, persecutory, somatic, and mixed, i.e., having features of more than one subtypes.The following can indicate a delusion:
1.The patient expresses an idea or belief with unusual persistence or force. (Adrian James Honan)
2.That idea appears to exert an undue influence on his or her life, and the way of life is often altered to an inexplicable extent.
3.Despite his/her profound conviction, there is often a quality of secretiveness or suspicion when the patient is questioned about it.
4.The individual tends to be humorless and oversensitive, especially about the belief. (John Parsons)
5.There is a quality of centrality: no matter how unlikely it is that these strange things are happening to him, the patient accepts them relatively unquestioningly. (Matthew Ludgate)
6.An attempt to contradict the belief is likely to arouse an inappropriately strong emotional reaction, often with irritability and hostility. (Matthew Ludgate)(Adrian James Honan)
7.The belief is, at the least, unlikely, and out of keeping with the patient’s social or cultural background.
8.The patient is emotionally over-invested in the idea and it overwhelms other elements of his or her psyche.
9.The delusion, if acted out, often leads to behaviors which are abnormal and/or out of character, although perhaps understandable in the light of the delusional beliefs. (Matthew Ludgate)
10.Individuals who know the patient will observe that his or her belief and behavior are uncharacteristic and alien

PAGANISM ,THE ORIGINAL AND STILL THE BEST BELIEF AND A LOT LESS DELUSIONAL!!!
IMHO
I enjoy “Christmas” or the winter solstace as I call it.I do not believe in Santa Claus (or Jesus Christ ,who has NOTHING to do with christmas!!) I understand it, it is the Mid Winter solar festival,the days will get longer. Easter is the Spring Equinox and a time of natural fertility etc..PAGANISM MAKES SENSE!!It contects us with the natural world, It is the same with ALL indigenous native belief systems when you study them,instead of oppressing and burning them.
The stories of Abrahamic monotheists are just badly rewritten polytheistic pagan original stories.Abrahamic monotheisms holy days are badly rehashed pagan polytheistic festivals . Abrahamic monotheism itself is just badly rewritten polytheism. In polytheism there are a group of “gods” usually with a Head God or deity. This head god has other major and minor deities that do his bidding or attempt to prevert or challenge his bidding. In Abrahamic monotheism we have a Head God with a other major and minor deities that do his bidding or try to prevert or challenge his rule. Satan and his fallen angels ,angels , arch angels , cheribs ,saints etc etc etc….

The Golden Bough attempts to define the shared elements of religious belief, ranging from ancient belief systems to relatively modern religions such as Christianity. Its thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that revolved around the worship of, and periodic sacrifice of, a sacred king.
This king was the incarnation of a dying and reviving god, a solar deity who underwent a mystic marriage to a goddess of the Earth, who died at the harvest, and was reincarnated in the spring. Frazer claims that this legend is central to almost all of the world’s mythologies.
The book scandalized the British public upon its first publication, because it included the Christian story of Jesus in its comparative study, thus inviting an agnostic reading of the Lamb of God as a relic of a pagan religion.

Paganism used to give free thinking “spiritual” individuals archetypes to meditae on. These came in many forms and represented the forces influencing that individuals life , fertility , commerce , drink ,whatever .Psychologically giving the indiviual the power to bargin with or just comprehend the influences at work in his life , encouraging the individual to take control of his life. Abrahamic monotheism kills all this, the only archetype to meditate on is “god” in the material form of Jewish , Christian or Islamic absoulute authority. Any spiritual dealings now need cleared from the priestly authoritarian regime , no thinking about what is effecting your life ,its all this god and only this god and only this holy man can save you. Its just Spitiual fascism and it creates stupid people, that believe stupid ideas and commit stupid attrocities, because thier stupid holyman told them too.

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS SUPPORTTED NAZIS AND OTHER POLITICAL FASCISTS

Myth:
Atheism is more dangerous than religion because atheists like Adolf Hitler killed millions in the name of their atheistic ideologies like Nazism. That’s far more than have been killed in the name of religion.

Response:
A popular image of the Nazis is that they were fundamentally anti-Christian while devout Christians were anti-Nazi. The truth is that German Christians supported the Nazis because they believed that Adolf Hitler was a gift to the German people from God.

FYI
CHRISTIANS
Pope Pius IX (1846-1878), the last ruler of the Papal States, claimed that after Rome was annexed he was a “Prisoner in the Vatican”. This situation was resolved on 11 February 1929 between the Holy See and the Kingdom of Italy.The treaty was signed by Benito Mussolini (from religious facism to political facism )

In 1999, John Cornwell’s Hitler’s Pope criticized Pius for not doing enough, or speaking out enough, against the Holocaust. Cornwell argued that Pius’s entire career as the nuncio to Germany, cardinal secretary of state, and pope was characterized by a desire to increase and centralize the power of the Papacy, and that he subordinated opposition to the Nazis to that goal.

THE  VATICAN RAN THE NAZI ESCAPE “RATLINES”
Ratlines were systems of escape routes for Nazis and other fascists fleeing Europe at the end of World War II. These escape routes mainly led toward havens in South America, particularly Argentina,Paraguay, Brazil, and Chile.
One ratline, made famous by the Frederick Forsyth thriller The Odessa File, was run by the ODESSA (Organisation der ehemaligen SS-Angehörigen; “Organization of Former SS-Members”) network organized by Otto Skorzeny
The origins of the first ratlines are connected to various developments in Vatican-Argentine relations before and during World War II. As early as 1942, Monsignor Luigi Maglione contacted Ambassador Llobet, inquiring as to the “willingness of the government of the Argentine Republic to apply its immigration law generously, in order to encourage at the opportune moment European Catholic immigrants to seek the necessary land and capital in our country”
Spain, not Rome, was the “first center of ratline activity that facilitated the escape of Nazi fascists”, although the exodus itself was planned within the Vatican. Charles Lescat, a French Catholic member of Action Française and Pierre Daye, a Belgian with contacts in the Spanish government, were among the primary organizers. Lescat and Daye were the first able to flee Europe, with the help of French cardinal Eugene Tisserant and Argentine cardinal Antonio Caggiano .
By 1946, there were probably hundreds of war criminals in Spain, and thousands of former Nazis and fascists. According to US Secretary of State James F. Byrnes, Vatican cooperation in turning over asylum-seekers was “negligible”. According to Phayer, Pius XII “preferred to see fascist war criminals on board ships sailing to the New World rather than seeing them rotting in POW camps in zonal Germany”

Was Pope Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) A Nazi? Why Join the Hitler Youth?
The question of Joseph Ratzinger’s involvement with Nazi Germany and the Hitler Youth is important: there is reason to think that Ratzinger has been less than fully candid about his past.

JEWS
In 1940, Lehi proposed intervening in World War II on the side of Nazi Germany.  Late in 1940, Lehi representative Naftali Lubenchik was sent to Beirut where he met the German official Werner Otto von Hentig. Lubenchik told von Hentig that Lehi had not yet revealed its full power and that they were capable of organizing a whole range of anti-British operations.
the organization offered cooperation in the following terms: full cooperation in sabotage, espionage and intelligence and up to wide military operations in the Middle East and in eastern Europe anywhere where the Irgun had Jewish cells, active and trained and in some places with weapons. From the German side, the following declarations and actions were demanded: (1) Full recognition of an independent Jewish state in Palestine/Eretz Israel (2) That the ability to emigrate to Palestine be conceded to all Jews, with no restriction of numbers, who, in leaving their homes in Europe, by their own will or because of government injunctions.
On January 11, 1941 a letter by Lehi, which would be later referred to as the Ankara document, was sent from Vice Admiral Ralf von der Marwitz, the German Naval attaché in Ankara, depicting an offer to “actively take part in the war on Germany’s side” in return for German support for “the establishment of the historic Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, bound by a treaty with the German Reich.”
The letter was signed by Avraham Stern and the later Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.

ATHEISTS FOUGHT THE FASCISTS,MONOTHEISTS JOINED THEM!!!
The FAI was created as a purely anarchist association, with the intention of keeping the CNT focused on the principles of anarchism.
Anarchists played a central role in the fight against Franco during the Spanish Civil War. At the same time, a far-reaching social revolution spread throughout Spain, where land and factories were collectivized and controlled by the workers. All remaining social reforms ended in 1939 with the victory of Franco, who had thousands of anarchists executed.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anarchy_in_spain
You will find a lot of good monotheist fought on Franco’s side!

IMHO IF RELIGION IS VALID ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS SATANISM
If gods exist ,then ALL Abrahamic monotheists worship SATAN.The god of LIES , DECIET , BLOODSHED , WAR ,DESTRUCTION ,HUMAN SACRIFICE ,SLAVERY,BIGOTRY ,INTOLERANCE,IGNORANCE ,GLOBAL DESTRUCTION, SEXUAL PREVERSION …Its the only thing that makes SENSE ,when YOU THINK about it.SATAN only appears when Abrahamic monotheism appears, COINCIDENCE? There is NO pure evil god in pagan polytheism….BUT todays Satan is equated with the Egyptian Set , the Semitic Baal and El , and Pan etc..all horned gods and all worshipped by the ancient hebrews and all the biblical stories are based on these gods stories, especially Set and Baal!

MYSTERY BABYLON Documentary – (what they do not want you to know)

A religious person explaining why Abrahamic monotheism(Catholic Christian branch) is actually worshipping the Anti-christ

The History Of The Devil

In this documentry we find Satan is a godlike being created by Abrahamic monotheists. Each claims the other has Satan as thier leader.
Fortunately I am actually an Atheist and I blame man ,NOT GODS!
SO WHAT SHOULD YOU BELIEVE?

All beings have an energy ,that is a SCIENTIFIC FACT!!! Call it what you will, the spirit, the soul, chi , the force ,electro-magnetic fields ,etc..etc..
Therefore ALL expressions of this energy is equally valid , Buddhist , Hindu , Pagan , Atheist ,Monotheist ,Animist etc..etc..
To stand up and say
MY VERSION OF SPIRITUAL EXPRESSION IS THE ONLY ONE!!!
ONLY IN MY BOOK CAN ENLIGHTENMENT BE FOUND!!!
THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN RELIGIOUS FASCISM!!!
and is NOT ENLIGHTENED at all. At the end of the day , believe what YOU will , if you are NOT murdering raping and stealing, then what you believe is really none of my business ,some people believe god is an alien, no harm in that either. The same should apply to YOU and MY beliefs!The more beliefs the better in my opinion, it shows humanity is thinking and it encourages debate,all a good state of being.  I may totally disagree with what YOU believe BUT I will stand and defend YOUR RIGHT to believe it!! Would an Abrahamic monotheist do the same for me? I think NOT….so which of us is the morally superior? So YOU belive in god,BIG DEAL,you are NOT the only one ,BUT does god believe in YOU? because that would be a BIG DEAL!

A monotheist is just an atheist that believes in one more god. If this monotheist can explain why HE does NOT believe in the other gods ,he has just answered why I do NOT believe in his!
QUESTION EVERYTHING TRUTH CAN HANDLE AWKWARD QUESTIONS, its LIES that need dogma and (in)doctrinations ,There is a BIG difference between knealing down and bending over , it is better to give than recieve ,they say……
ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS JUST ORIGINAL FASCISM!!!

HERE’S A BIT OF FUN …….

BUT YOU ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS MIGHT UNDERSTAND BETTER IF I PUT IT THIS WAY!AS IT SEEMS TO BE THE WAY YOU “THINK”
MY MONOTHEISTIC GOD IS BIGGER THAN YOURS …NA..NA.. NA NA.. NA
MY HOLY TRINITY?
FREEDOM,SCIENCE,COMPASION

MY BELIEF SYSTEM?
MATTER IS ENERGY ,AND ENERGY CANNOT BE DESTROYED ONLY CONVERTED

MY BOOK?
THE LAWS OF THERMODYNAMICS

THE NAME OF MY GOD?
GRAVITY
THE ONE TRUE universal and transcendental GOD,the one Uncreated Creator!

Everyday I am amazed by his/her creations!
Your pathetic TRIBAL GODS and old men in the sky try to DISPOIL MY GODS CREATED WORKS, ………but YOU ARE but NOUGHT IN HIS SIGHT!!
BLOW YOURSELFS UP if you want and take your pathetic myths with you,you created nothing anyway,but THE EARTH WILL NOT DISAPPEAR!! IT WILL just LOOK UGLY for a million years…… THANKS TO YOU, UNBELIEVER AND YOUR GODS WORK!!!
Hopefully SOMETHING MORE INTELLIGENT AND COMPASIONATE will EVOLVE later and prove itself WORTHY OF EXISTANCE ON MY GODS WONDEROUS CREATION!! A million years is nothing to MY GOD!! It would be the DEATH of all of YOURS.
MY PRIESTS re-write OUR BOOKS ,but that is because WE SEEK the ULTIMATE TRUTH!
YOUR PRIESTS re-write YOUR BOOKS to HIDE the ULTIMATE TRUTH!
YOUR BOOK says the Earth is flat and the sun revolves around it, and the sky is held up on 4 pillars.ITS THE WORD OF YOUR GOD
MY BOOK says the Earth is a sphereoid that revolves around the sun, and the sky is light difused through atmosphere. THAT’S THE WORD OF MINE
WHICH ONE DO YOU TRULEY BELIEVE??
The only future YOUR BELIEF has is either its exstinction or humanity’s in an Armegeddon ,your belief system IS THE EMBODIMENT OF EVIL!
TRIBAL GODS ,I RAGE AGAINST YOU(but as you do not exist I’ll just have a cup of tea instead,just as well ,I would feel guilty beating up an old man)
BUT actually…BELIEVE WHAT YOU WILL, JUST BE GOOD, maybe I’ll burn in HELL ,but MY FAITH says I will NOT,variety is the spice of life is it not . BUT if YOUR BELIEFS are used to JUSTIFY THEFT and MURDER and DESTRUCTION, I SPIT ON THEM AND YOU! If you want to HARM MY LOVED ONES with your pathetic gods I’LL FIND YOU….and YOUR GODS, YOUR PRAYERS , NOT EVEN SATAN HIMSELF COULD SAVE YOU FROM MY WRATH!!

WHAT WOULD BE IMPORTANT IS THAT GOD BELIEVES IN YOU AND THE THINGS THAT YOU DO!!!
BTW. I SMILE AT WHAT I SEE IN THE MIRROR EVERY MORNING,I AM AT PEACE WITH MY GOD ,
BUT MAYBE GRAVITY IS A MYTH AND THE EARTH JUST SUCKS!!

God does not scare me its his followers that worry me.
If you feel religious.its your choice, there are plenty of inoffensive religions to choose from but..
IMHO
ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS SATANISM or at least a FORCE OF EVIL. Look at the difference between its words and deeds!

RELIGION

The Golden Bough: A Study in Magic and Religion is a wide-ranging, comparative study of mythology and religion, written by Scottish anthropologist Sir James George Frazer (1854–1941). The Golden Bough attempts to define the shared elements of religious belief, ranging from ancient belief systems to relatively modern religions such as Christianity. Its thesis is that old religions were fertility cults that revolved around the worship of, and periodic sacrifice of, a sacred king.
This king was the incarnation of a dying and reviving god, a solar deity who underwent a mystic marriage to a goddess of the Earth, who died at the harvest, and was reincarnated in the spring. Frazer claims that this legend is central to almost all of the world’s mythologies.
The book scandalized the British public upon its first publication, because it included the Christian story of Jesus in its comparative study, thus inviting an agnostic reading of the Lamb of God as a relic of a pagan religion
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Golden_Bough

“The danger, however, is not less real because it is imaginary; imagination acts upon man as really as does gravitation, and may kill him as certainly as a dose of prussic acid.” (Chapter 21, “Golden Bough ,Tabooed Things”.)

All ancient religions seem to originate from this philosophy.There are many “organic” belief systems practiced today. Many are ancient and combine wisdom , natural science , and cultural knowledge and history.These include the beliefs of native peoples across the world .They are vibrant parts of a living culture ,until monotheism stomps them out! This monotheistic fascistic belief system has no part to play in a modern society. If you pray to Jesus , Yahawa or Allah , you might as well pray to Osiris , Zeus ,Mithra or Set! They hold as much relevance today , they are “organic” in origin unlike Abrahamic monotheism ,which is an invention for the purpose of material empire building and it is these “Old gods” that the invented god of Abraham owes his existance. Hopefully this belief system will pass the same way as other ancient primitive tribal belief systems.

Abrahamic Monotheism was a CON from the start.It is nothing more than Polytheism re-hashed. All its old stories are rip offs of polythesic originals.Monotheisms god is a three in one god. This is a rip off of Polytheism which gods came in three.
THE ORIGINAL HOLY TRINITY
The Sumerian  An .. was one of the oldest gods in the Sumerian pantheon, and part of a triad including Enlil, god of the sky and Enki,
Also the Egyptian Amun-Mut-Chons triad of Thebes that arose during the Middle Kingdom in 2134-1991 B.C.)
Egypt had Hathor-Menkaure-Bat triad of the fourth dynasty
In Celtic Gaul The Divine Woodman ,Esus or Hesus (“lord” or “master”) was a Gaulish god known from two monumental statues and a line in Lucan’s Bellum civile.
A well-known section in Lucan’s Bellum civile talks about the gory sacrificial offerings proffered to a triad of Celtic deities: Teutates, Hesus (an aspirated form of Esus), and Taranis. According to the Berne Commentary on Lucan, human victims were sacrificed to Esus by being tied to a tree and flailed .
In Polytheism there is a Head or Ruling Deity ,usually called An , Anu , Danu , Amen , Amun etc.. This is why monotheists still send thier prayers to AMEN! There will be lesser gods in polytheism that carry out the Head gods wishes and are in charge of certain aspects of life. This is NO DIFFERENT from modern Abrahamic monotheism ,with its three in one Head deity and his arch angels , angels , saints and devils and demons.

The Invention of Judaism

Cyrus the Great invented Judaism by converting the captured hebrews in Babylon, from Egyptian SET worship to Zoroastrian monotheism. He made himself the messiah of this new monotheistic religion and was the builder of the temple. He did this to create a loyal buffer state for his Persian Empire. 

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-judaism/

The Invention of Christianity

Constantine the Great invented “Christianity”,or “Arianism” as Constantine refered to it, to unite his Western and Eastern Roman empires under one unified religion. One Empire , one emperor one religion. It was a combination of Egyptian monotheistic sun worship with Druidic and Hindu beliefs ,the joining of Hesus and Krishna , added to Greek philosophy. Its book was the New Testemonies…… see “book of Kells” or the “Lindisfarne gospels” for an example.(No old testament and NO Jewish references in this version of the New Testament)

It was the Byzantine Emperor Justinian that made messianic judaism the state religion of the Byzantine Empire and the BI-BLE (2 books or 2 bulls) the book of books. He was trying to save a dying empire from the rise of the Islamic empire. Convert or die is the state policy.

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-christianity/

The Invention of Islam

Islam is the conversion of Quraysh moon worship to a “heretical” version of judaic monotheism. Brought to Arabia by Nestorian and Ebonite priests to  unite the tribes and fight against the power of the Byzantine and Persian Empires.They convert the locals by the sword.

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-islam/

This “one god’s” religion has been spread by force and violence and book burning and has NOTHING to do with love and tolerance.

To take this reasoning a step further. It would seem if my atheism is incorrect and “gods” do run the universe ,then it is GODS PLURAL and NOT A GOD.

ALL the Abrahamic monotheistic beliefs being re-written LIES from the ORIGINAL POLYTHEISTIC stories. Usually from Sumerian or Egyptian original stories. It is IMPOSED on a population by FORCE ,usually convert or die.

It would then follow that if these ORIGINAL POLYTHESTIC stories are true , then WHICH GOD DO THESE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS WORSHIP TODAY?

It would seem to be the ….

God of the MATERIAL   (for all the claims of poverty have you seen the Vatican !)

God of LIES             (unless you think the world is flat and the sun revolves around us, and how else do you explain the polytheistic original story versions and what else could be the reason that the words are so nice BUT the ACTIONS are bloodsoaked and intolerant)

God of BLOOD and HUMAN SACRIFICE            (remember Jews ,Christians and Muslims ALL worship the same monotheistic god of Abraham, he is all seeing and all knowing ,so he must want his disciples to slaughter each other in his name! )

God of DESTRUCTION and ANNILATION       (remember ALL these monotheists are HELL BENT on bringing on the END OF THE WORLD!!!!)

God of VENGENCE and BIGOTRY      (crusades , Judaism’s chosen ones  , Jihad etc…)

God of DOGMA and IGNORANCE    (remember these people have frequently burned knowledge rather than study it, they also would rather burn humans than debate with them)

God of FILTH and PESTILENCE    (remember that PAGANS where clean and educated , it was the monotheists that closed the bath houses and stopped pagan ritual bathing and burned all knowledge that did not come from the bible ,including the wise women and herbalists and healers. IMHO it is NOT coincidence that plagues swept through Europe following the trail of monotheism   )

God of PERVERSTION  (it certainly attracts the paedophiles and it certainly covers for them as well )

SO IF “GODS” EXIST THEN THE MONOTHEISTS BASICALLY WORSHIP THE FALLEN ONE  a.k.a. the Devil , Satan , “He who cannot be named” , SET !

I call myself an Atheist ,NOT because I have the answers of Life the Universe and everything ,BUT because I KNOW that the unexplained we face today has NOTHING to do with ancient primitive tribal gods.Science is my tool NOT my belief .I also believe the MORE theories and ideas there are the better! It shows humanity is thinking and encourages debate ,all a good healthy state of being.BUT the trouble with dogmatic religions is that they CLOSE and indoctrinate the minds of thier followers. Saying that all routes to “salvation” can only be found in this book is just ignorant , bigotted and WRONG.Especially when these people attack modern science and scientific and archeological facts.They also seem hell bent on destroying the only known fertile planet in the Solar system/Universe ,JUST to bring THIER god to Earth on a White horse. It would be hysterically funny ,if they where not so damn serious!

Here are some interesting  documentries on this subject. I do NOT agree with ALL they say ,BUT they are thought provoking and encourage debate, which is a healthy state of being.

What do we KNOW about the (multi)universe?

GENESIS FOR ATHEISTS

E=MC2

Energy equals mass multiplied by the speed of light squared.

The (multi)universe is made of mass and energy ,two forms of the same thing. The (multi)universe converts one form to another with 100% efficiency. This is one definition of perfection.

WE are made of the same mass and energy,so are the stars and the trees and everything. This mass and energy is indestructable, it can only change form ,which is part of its nature to do so and it does so perfectly,but mass ,energy or information as some scientists refer to this, cannot  be destroyed ,only converted, it does this with 100% efficiency. This could be called immortality via a form of reincarnation.

The universal struggle to become self aware.

The universe seems to show a level of self awareness ,even at its basic levels. On the molecular level ,basic molecules seem to naturally form complex patterns,like the DNA helix , instead of randoms strings of things. This seems to show a form of awarness.

Electrons are aware if they are being watched and will change thier behaviour accordingly.They will behave like a wave if not watched , they behave like a particle if watched.  This can be demonstrated repeatedly in experiments.

Inorganic molecules also form crystallic structures ,regular in form and pattern again.

Like mass seems to defy randomness and form more and more complex forms , evolution. So it would seem the same is for energy. Somewhere in here lies the struggle for “universal” self awareness.

Self awarness is shown in many forms on planet Earth. Higher levels are shown amoungst dolphins ,whales and some primates. There is no guarantee that these forms will continue to rise in awareness or even survive. On this spiralling rock ,there have been many forms of Mankind , at least 20 that we know of ,and today WE are the only survivors. We have no guarantee of survival either and we have actually been really lucky to survive this long.We have on more than one occasion been reduced to a handful of survivors. Actually the clock is ticking so to speak.The Earth is expected to be effectively habitable for about another 500 million years,[43] although this may be extended up to 2.3 billion years if the nitrogen is removed from the atmosphere. The Sun, as part of its evolution, will become a red giant in about 5 Gyr. Models predict that the Sun will expand out to about 250 times its present radius, roughly 1 AU (150,000,000 km)a more recent simulation indicates that Earth’s orbit will decay due to tidal effects and drag, causing it to enter the red giant Sun’s atmosphere and be destroyed.
  This natural process will lead to the sun blasting off its outer layers and spreading clouds of gases rich in heavy elements and organic molecules through the universe. This cloud will condense ,stars will form and light up the darkness , planets will form and the process will start again. This process has already happened before, as the elements WE are made of where created within the furneces of stars that have long since exploded.

The universal Balance

Mass seems to prefer Law and travels in revolutions and predictable motions, doomed to stagnate and degrade ,only to be born again new and start the process again.

Energy seems to prefer chaos and lives in fields that vary constantly and behave unpredictably, always varying and changing form and direction at the slightest provocation. 

There are many theories as to the “Creation” of the universe .

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cosmogony

Current scientific theory suggests before Space and Time there was a gravitational singularity .This is, approximately, a place where quantities which are used to measure the gravitational field become infinite. Such quantities include the curvature of spacetime or the density of matter. An infinitly small but infinitly dense point.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_singularity
E=MC2
SPACE AND TIME ARE CREATED FROM ENERGY BEING CONVERTED INTO MATTER POWERED BY GRAVITY.
Thanks to the Hubble Telescope we can look back 13 billions years and see what happened.The Hubble Ultra Deep Field is the deepest image of the universe ever taken in visible light, looking back approximately 13 billion years, and it will be used to search for galaxies that existed between 400 and 800 million years after the Big Bang.

STARS AWAKE HEAVY ELEMENTS ARE CREATED AND PLANETS FORM ALL POWERED BY GRAVITY

4.6 Billion years ago ,the Solar system forms
4.56 Billions years ago , Proto-Earth is formed. It is hit by a Mars sized object and the Earth and Moon are formed. The astroid belt is also a possible remnant of this collision.
LIFE BEGINS
Some scientists now believe that comets, meteorites, and interplanetary dust deliver organic compounds created in interstellar space to newly formed planets, and that such space-born substances could have “kick-started” the development of life on Earth. Researchers working with NASA’s Astrobiology Institute have created “proto-cells” that mimic the membranous structures used to create the living cells found on our planet. They subjected icy dust particles that are rich in organic compounds (i.e., water, methanol or wood alcohol, ammonia, and carbon monoxide) that are found in dense molecular clouds of interstellar space to the harsh conditions found there, such as intense cold and ultraviolet light. An abundance of such structures raining down on wet areas of Earth during its early years could have been important in protecting self-replicating molecules (i.e., the precursors of RNA and DNA) that became encapsulated within them, and eventually such proto-cells could have evolved into primitive lifeforms. (See a NASA summary.) In 2006, two scientists argued that the development of life on Earth was the necessary consequence of available energy built up by geological processes (including polyphosphates made in volcanic processes) on the early Earth, in the same way that lightning relieves the accumulation of electrical charge in thunderclouds (Morowitz and Smith, 2006; and Phillip Ball, Nature, November 14, 2006).
Initially, the Earth’s surface was mostly molten rock that gradually cooled through the radiation of heat into space. The primeval atmosphere was composed mostly of water (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2) and monoxide (CO), molecular nitrogen (N2) and molecular hydrogen (H2), and hydrogen chloride (HCl) outgassed from molten rock, with only traces of reactive molecular oxygen (O2). This steamy atmosphere was rich with water released from hydrated minerals and cometary impactors. As the Earth continued to cool from Years 0.1 to 0.3 billion, a torrential rain fell that turned to steam upon hitting the still hot surface, then superheated water, and finally collected into hot or warm seas and oceans above and around cooling crustal rock leaving sediments. Every once in a while, however, a large asteroid or comet would strike the planet which remelted crustal rock and turned oceans back into hot mist. Eventually, a stable rocky crust may have developed between Years 0.2 and 0.4 billion (see J. Bret Bennington’s discussion of recycled zircons (crystals of zirconium silicate) from the rocks of western Australia in the Hadean Eon and the January 11, 2001 announcement of zircons found north of Perth that appear to be 4.4 billion years old), covered and surrounded by soupy water that was already rich with organic compounds from interstellar space.
On July 3, 2008, a team of scientists published results (Nemchin et al, 2008) on finding unusually high “light-carbon” isotope ratios possibly indicative of biological origin found in micrometer-sized diamond and graphite inclusions that were later incorporated within 22 zircons from the Jack Hills of Western Australia, which were formed under the pressure of 100 to 150 kilometers (62 to 93 miles) of crustal rock. As the zircons were radioactively dated to be as old as 4.25 billion years, the new findings suggest that carbon-based life may have been present on Earth within the first 300 million years after planetary formation.

MANKIND AWAKES
5,000,000 BC Hominids separated from other primates
2,000,000 BC Homo habilis
1,750,000 BC Initial hominid exodus from Africa
1,500,000 BC Home erectus
1,000,000 BC Early hominids in Spain and Central Asia
http://www.danbyrnes.com.au/lostworlds/timeline/lwstory18.htm
Prehistory is a term often used to describe the period before written history. The early human migrations patterns in the Lower Paleolithic saw Homo erectus spreads across Eurasia. The controlled use of fire from ca. 800 thousand years ago occurred.
800,000BC: Dating for human remains discovered recently by archaeologists. A site reveals about 80 human bones and bone fragments from two adult females and four children, maybe eaten by other humans, as some bones had marks from sharp stone tools. Around the remains were bones from horses, deer, bison, rhino and possibly elephants. This is possibly the earliest known example of human cannibalism, found in Northern Spain in a cave at Atapuerca. It is possible the specimens were Homo antecessor, (Ancestor Man, who developed into Neandertal). It is thought that possibly Ancestor Man came from Africa one million years ago, to Europe, and that their fellows who stayed in Africa developed into Homo sapiens? See a recent issue of journal, Science. Meantime, tools made 900,000 years ago were found at an even deeper level of the Atapuerca cave site. Reported in Sydney, 31 May, 1997
800,000BC: Soleilhac, in the Massif Central of France, is the oldest “unquestionable” site of hominid occupation in Europe, with remains of fauna remains and tools, but no hominid bones.
800,000BC: Some Indonesian and Dutch archaeologist refer to evidence that early hominids in Asia have made it to the island of Flores in the Javan archipelago.
700,000BC: Mary Leakey finds that a famous Acheulian hand-axe was being made by Homo erectus, while about this time, the magnetic poles of the earth reverse. (Ardrey, Hunting Hypothesis, pp. 130-133) The South Pole develops a negative polarity. About now the Arctic seems to freeze over for the first time. Ardrey feels the evidence on use of fire comes from colder areas of Europe and Asia. Soon comes the first wave of the glaciation of Europe. Perhaps soon, Heidelberg Man appears in Germany?
500,000 BC Common ancestor of Homo sapiens sapiens (Hss) and Homo neanderthalensis
500,000BC: Heidelberg Man is seen, in Cold Eurasia, possibly an early appearance of an African-evolved home erectus. (Ardrey, Hunting Hypothesis, p. 147) Diet exclusively of uncooked meat (the fats of which allow may brain growth?)
450,000BC to 380,000BC: Evidence of a wooden hut with a hearth at Terra Amata, near Nice, France, time of Mindel Glaciation. Also near Nice, France, an Acheulean hut dated 500,000-400,000BC a home evidently for Neandertals, with use of a fireplace, and furs, grasses, seaweeds used as bedding.
400,000 BC Early hominids in China
300,000BC-400,000-BC: Man begins to appreciate-learn to use fire. (Ardrey, Hunting Hypothesis, p. 56)
340,000-330,000BC: Glaciation of Earth. Neandertals displace Homo erectus in some areas.
Neandertal, is an extinct member of the Homo genus that is known from Pleistocene specimens found in Europe and parts of western and central Asia. Neanderthals are either classified as a subspecies of humans (Homo sapiens neanderthalensis) or as a separate species (Homo neanderthalensis).The first proto-Neanderthal traits appeared in Europe as early as 600,000–350,000 years ago.The youngest Neanderthal finds include Hyaena Den (UK), considered older than 30,000 years ago, while the Vindija (Croatia). No definite specimens younger than 30,000 years ago have been found. Modern human skeletal remains with ‘Neanderthal traits’ were found in Lagar Velho (Portugal), dated to 24,500 years ago and interpreted as indications of extensively admixed populations.Neanderthal stone tools provide further evidence for their presence where skeletal remains have not been found. The last traces of Mousterian culture, a type of stone tools associated with Neanderthals, were found in Gorham’s Cave on the remote south-facing coast of Gibraltar .Other tool cultures sometimes associated with Neanderthal include Châtelperronian, Aurignacian, and Gravettian, with the latter extending to 22,000 years ago, the last indication of Neanderthal presence.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neanderthal_genome_project
160,000-130,000BC: Glaciation of Earth which begins what some term the African/Oceanic Ice Age Civilization. Modern humans displace Neandertals in Africa and Oceanic Areas.

http://www.innerx.net/personal/tsmith/Hist.html/
Circa 250,000BC: About this time the human brain size stopped its slow trend toward enlargement. This may correspond with the human attainment of the rudiments of language?
133,000BC: According to global oxygen isotope records, the second last glacial cycle, which is called Stage 6, reaches its coldest extremes between 135,000 and 130,00 years ago. (Shreeve, Neandertal)
125,000BC: Neandertal Homo sapiens indicates that brain size and organization were basically modern. The Neandertals were the first people known to bury their dead. The Neandertals spread all across Europe, the Middle East, and western and central Asia.
130,000BP: Humans first acquire chins
125,000 BP: Scientists in 2000 identified human stone tools of this time from a fossil reef along the Red Sea coast of Eritrea. They identified the area as the “world’s first oyster bar.”
Seaside living, Eritrea: It now seems that humans have been living by the sea and using boats for at least 125,000 years. The earliest known seaside settlement has been identified via the use of stone tools on the Red Sea coast of Eritrea. Further work may help establish how humans fanned out from Africa to settle in other parts of the world? The finding was made by Dr. Robert Walker of the Centre of Scientific Investigation in Ensenada, Mexico. Humans were also living at the same time in Israel, Ethiopia, Kenya, and the Sudan. The new finding supports the “out of Africa” theory of single human evolution.
100,000BC: Hunters live in limestone caves of Eastern Spain.
100,000BC: Possible occupation of Japan, period not yet accurately fixed. (Pottery use there from 12,000BC, preceding farming.)
100,000BC: Wooden tools used at Kalambo Falls, borders of Tanzania and Zambia.
100,000BC to 40,000 years ago: Neandertal Man in West Germany.
98,000BC: Stone tools survive from the Kirkuk area, Iraq, now held in a museum in Iraq.
90,000BC: Potassium-argon dating and thermoluminescence can be used to date pieces of pottery back to about this time.
68,000BC approx: Two Neandertal skulls from France of this time are found. They had a hypoglossal canal the size of modern humans, which was thought to be indicative of speech. By now, Neandertals have spread over much of Europe and Western Asia. (See Shreeve, Neandertal)
NEANDERTAL MAN CREATES GOD THE BEAR AND HOMO ERECTUS/SAPIENS CREATES GOD THE SNAKE
Archeological evidence from Middle Paleolithic caves,shows that a widespread Middle Paleolithic Neanderthal bear cult existed (Wunn, 2000, p. 434-435).
78,000BC: About 1962, French archaeologists at Regourdou find the remains of what might have been a “bear cult” conducted by Neandertals. The bones of a brown bear have been carefully arranged. (Shreeve, Neandertal) 
Bear worship (also known as the Bear Cult or Arctolatry) is the religious practice of the worshiping of bears found in many North American and North Eurasian ethnic circumpolar religions such as the Sami, Nivkhs, Ainu, and pre-christian Finns. There are also a number of deities from Celtic Gaul and Britain associated with the bear and the bear is featured on many totems throughout northern cultures that carve them. Bear worship may have been practiced as far back as the Middle paleolithic period amongst Neanderthal societies c.300,000 to 30,000 BC
Additional evidence in support of Middle Paleolithic animal worship originates from the Tsodilo Hills (c 70,000BCE) in the African Kalahari desert where a giant rock resembling a python that is accompanied by large amounts of colored broken spear points and a secret chamber has been discovered inside a cave. The Broken spear points were most likely sacrificial offerings and the python is also important to and worshipped by contemporary Bushmen Hunter-gatherers who are the descendants of the of the people who devised the ritual at the Tsodilo Hills and may have inherited their worship of the python from their distant Middle Paleolithic ancestors.
MODERN MAN IS BORN
Near c. 250 thousand years ago, Homo sapiens evolves in Africa.
c.150,000 BC Mitochondrial Eve in Africa (MOM mother of man)
71,000 BC Eruption of Toba, Sumatra volcano and the ensuing cold millennium which killed almost all Homo Sapien sapien (estimate of 5,000 left) This was right at a minimum temperture of about 7 degrees C below current temperature.The eruption took the temperature down to about 9 degrees C below current temperature for about 1000 years
68,000BC approx: Two Neandertal skulls from France of this time are found. They had a hypoglossal canal the size of modern humans, which was thought to be indicative of speech. By now, Neandertals have spread over much of Europe and Western Asia. (See Shreeve, Neandertal)
Around c. 70–60 thousand years ago, modern humans migrate out of Africa along a coastal route to South and Southeast Asia and reach Australia. 
60,000 BC Y-chromosome Adam (DAD direct ancesteral descendant)
60,000BC: At Shanidar, a large cave in the Zagros mountains of northeastern Iraq soil samples from a grave of a [Neandertal] man of this time indicated pollen grains from 8 different types of flowers, some of them used for medicinal purposes. When excavated by Ralph Solecki of Columbia University, the remains are found of nine Neandertals, with some evidence of “spirituality”. One man has received wounds to head and body meaning he had a withered arm and was blind in one eye. In 1971, Solecki published his book, Shanidar: The First Flower People. (Shreeve, Neandertal)

60,000BC: A Neandertal from Kebara cave (Israel) shows an age of 60,000 years. An Israeli-French team working in Israel uses the technique of thermoluminescence to study the relationship between early humans and Neandertals. Shreeve in his book on Neandertals notes that about 58,000BC in the Levant area at least was one of the coldest periods of the Ice Age, for the Qafzeh-Skhul people. At this time, did Homo sapiens co-exist in the same area with Neandertals?
60,000BC: Custom of head deformation, also seen amongst Ancient Mesoamericans, seen as early as 60,000BC in the Near East, as found with Neandertal skulls in the Shanidar cave of Northern Iraq. (James/Thorpe).
60,000BC-58,000BC: One of the earliest ceremonial burials found is a “suttee and flowers” burial at (cave?) Shanidar in northern Iraq
60,000-10,000BC: The Acheulian Age or early Stone Age culture lasted over this period. (Encyclopedia of Africa, 1976, p.165)

58,000 years ago? To 9000BC approx homo floriensis (little people, Hobbits),in 2004, from the Indonesian island of Flores just near the North-West coast of Western Australia, came news from a team largely of Australian archaeologists that a new species of humanity, homo floriensis (little people, Hobbits) has been discovered. They became extinct about 11,000 years ago. The saga of, or, about, the Hobbits now continues as archaeologist Mike Morwood from University of New England now suggests that one-metre tall Hobbits, who were wiped out by difficulties with volcanoes, may have lived also in Australia
 In March 2005 scientists who published details of the brain of Flores Man in Science supported species status.A study[14] published in July 2009 found that cladistic analysis supports that H. floresiensis is a separate species.

58,0000BC: Approx: The Mungo Man controversy on the genetics of human origins breaks out: Australia was enlivened on 9 January 2001 to read reports of far-reaching new research by Australian scientists on the origins and dispersal of humanity, globally, which counters the orthodox “Out of Africa” theory of human origins.
The scientific argument is extremely complicated and multi-disciplinary, but it does seem as though arguments will never be the same again. Crucial to the arguments are views on the origins of Australia’s Aboriginal people.
Evidence used is basically some flakes from the skull of Mungo Man, remains found in 1974 in New South Wales by Australian Jim Bowler. Later, Mungo Man (scientifically called LM3) was radiocarbon-dated at about 28,000-32,000 years old, a view which supported opinions that Aboriginals had been in Australia for up to 40,000 years. By the mid-1980s, better radiocarbon-dating techniques pushed LM3’s dates to about 36,000BC. In 1999, LM3 again caused excitement, since his dates were more like 58,000BC, or, 56,000-68,000 BP (Before present). This trebled the “human settlement time” of the Australian continent. But other evidence arising by the late 1990s tended to support the “Out of Africa” theory of human origins, which suggests that fully-modern Homo sapiens arose in Africa, and then dispersed elsewhere, 150,000-100,000 years ago. As they dispersed they displaced (possibly killed?) earlier or more archaic people, Neandertals or the earlier-arising Homo erectus. However, Mungo Man is anatomically modern, but his DNA does not match ours. His genes are now extinct.
So, by 2001, Australian researchers are proposing a Regional Continuity argument of human origins, which suggests that from about 1.5 million years ago, waves of people began migrating from Africa, becoming “a single evolving species”. These forms of humanity continually interbred, and became ourselves. Mungo Man was “a modern man” but his genetic lineage is now extinct, which may in turn suggest that some other human (non-Neandertal) genetic lines became extinct before modern man appeared between 100,000BC-150,000BC?
Significantly, research on Mungo Man involves analysis of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA), which is passed down only the maternal line. However, the argument will continue for a long time. It now seems, Mungo Man’s lineage should stand as firmly in the history of humanity as the stockily-built Neandertal, and Java Man. (Those interested should find a copy of The Australian newspaper, 9 January 2001)
About c. 50 thousand years ago, modern humans spread from Asia to the Near East.
53,000-27,000BC: Pre-human fossils from a site on the Solo River near the Javanese town of Ngandong were dated in 1996 to this period, and identified as belonging to the species of Homo erectus. Brain size was equivalent to modern humans. (Estimated number of cells in the human brain – 10,000 million.)
40,700BC: In 1992 rock engravings in South Australia are carbon dated at 42,700 years.
Followed by c. 40 thousand years ago, in which Europe was first reached by modern humans.
Circa 43,000BC: About this time some seven women led to the descendants of the population of moern Europe. In 2001 geneticist Bryan Sykes authored The Seven Daughters of Eve. (Such issues are well-discussed in Shreeve, Neandertal)
The first such study dates back to 1999 and was conducted by the Estonian biologist Toomas Kivisild, a pioneer in the field, with fourteen co-authors from various nationalities (including M. J. Bamshad). It relied on 550 samples of mtDNA and identified a haplogroup called “U” as indicating a deep connection between Indian and Western-Eurasian populations.In other words, there is a genetic connection between India and Europe, but a far more ancient one than was thought and the flow was out of, not into, India.
“indeed, nearly all Europeans — and by extension, many Americans — can trace their ancestors to only four mtDNA lines, which appeared between 10,000 and 50,000 years ago and originated from South Asia.”
43,000BC: A flute-like instrument made of bear bone was found by archaeologist Janez Dirjec at the Divje Babe site in the valley of the Idrijca River in Slovenia. It was believed to be about 45,000 years old.

c.30,500 BC Ice Age in Europe starts
28,000 BC Date of latest fossil of Homo Neanderthalensis. Probably died off because of climate change and the arrival of Homo Sapien sapien(modern man)
“This definitely is its own species,” Dr. Tattersall affirmed, glancing first to the Neanderthal and then to a modern human skeleton next to it. “If people didn’t believe that before, by all rights they should now.”Also Gary Sawyer, a senior technician in anthropology, who directed the reconstruction and other technicians began developing their skills several years ago with the reconstruction of Peking Man, a Homo erectus from China. Their goal is to recreate skeletons of about 20 hominid species.

By c. 15 thousand years ago, the migration to the New World occurred.
c11,300 BC Ice Ages ends in Europe
The Ice Age (c.30,000 to 13,300 years ago),ends c. 11 300 BC. Ice sheets extended to about 45 degrees north latitude. These sheets were 3 to 4 km thick
WAR
In Egypt Cemetery 117 is an ancient cemetery near the northern border of Sudan 59 bodies were recovered at Cemetery 117, and many more partial pieces found. There were twenty-four females and nineteen males all over nineteen years of age, thirteen children ranging in age from infancy to fifteen years old, and also three bodies that remain unaged and unsexed due to damage and missing pieces. The skeletons were dated using radiocarbon dating at 13,740 years before present plus or minus 600 years. Of the people buried in Jebel Sahaba about forty percent died of violent wounds. Stone projectile points were found in the bodies at places that suggest that they were attached to a spear or arrow. The wound sites were in the chest or abdomen area, the back, or in the skull through the lower jaw or neck. Also the lack of bony calluses due to healing around these wounds indicates that they were most likely fatal
Some have speculated that this violence and aggression was due to diminishing resources in the area and the rising aridity of the land. Also the failure of earlier agricultural experiments may have led to this series of raiding and or ambush by other tribes or bands of people
WORSHIP
An early temple area in southeastern Turkey at Göbekli Tepe dated to 10,000 BC may be regarded as the beginning of the Neolithic. This site was developed by nomadic hunter-gatherer tribes, evidenced by the lack permanent housing in the vicinity. This temple site is the oldest known man-made place of worship.Through the radiocarbon method, the end of stratum III could be determined at circa 9,000 BC ; its beginnings are estimated to 11,000 BC or earlier. Stratum II dates to about 8,000 BC.
Thus, the complexes originated before the so-called Neolithic Revolution, the beginning of agriculture and animal husbandry, which is assumed to begin after 9,000 BC.The oldest occupation layer (stratum III) contained monolithic pillars linked by coarsely built walls to form circular or oval structures. So far, four such buildings, with diameters between 10 and 30m have been uncovered. Geophysical studies suggest 16 further structures
But the construction of the Göbekli Tepe complex implies organisation of a degree of complexity not hitherto associated with pre-Neolithic societies. The archaeologists estimate that up to 500 persons were required to extract the 10-20 ton pillars (in fact, some weigh up to 50 tons) from local quarries and move them 100 to 500m to the site.The monoliths are decorated with carved relief of animals or of abstract pictograms. These signs cannot be classed as writing, but may represent commonly understood sacred symbols, as known from Neolithic cave paintings elsewhere.
After 8000 BC, the site was abandoned and purposely covered up with soil.

CULTURE
The Fertile Crescent is a region in the Near East, incorporating the Levant and Mesopotamia, and often incorrectly extended to Egypt. Mesopotamia is considered the Cradle of civilization and saw the development of the earliest human civilizations and is the birthplace of writing and the wheel
The Levant The Natufian culture existed in the Mediterranean region of the Levant 12,000 to 9600 BCE. It was a Mesolithic culture, but unusual in that it was sedentary, or semi-sedentary, before the introduction of agriculture.Settlements occur in the woodland belt where oak and Pistacia species dominated. The underbrush of this open woodland was grass with high frequencies of grain. The high mountains of Lebanon and the Anti-Lebanon, the steppe areas of the Negev desert in Israel and Sinai, and the Syro-Arabian desert in the east put up only small Natufian living areas due to both their lower carrying capacity and the company of other groups of foragers who denuded this large region.The superstructure was probably made of brushwood. No traces of mudbrick have been found, which became common in the following Pre-Pottery Neolithic A, abbreviated PPN A. The round houses have a diameter between 3 and 6 meters, they contain a central round or subrectangular fireplace
The Natufian communities are possibly the ancestors of the builders of the first Neolithic settlements of the region.A semi-sedentary life may have been made possible by abundant resources due to a favourable climate at the time, with a culture living from hunting, fishing and gathering, including the use of wild cereals. Tools were available for making use of cereals: flint-bladed sickles for harvesting, and mortars, grinding stones, and storage pits.
Ain Mallaha was a Natufian settlement built and settled circa 10,000–8,000 BCE. The site is located in Northern Israel, and is in an area surrounded by hills and located by an ancient lake, Lake Huleh. The inhabitants are known to have eaten gazelle, fallow deer, wild boar, red and roe deer, hare, tortoise, reptiles, and fish. Also known as Eynan (Hebrew) or Mallaha (Arabic), this Natufian village was colonized in three phases. The first two phases were comprised of massive stone-built structures with smaller ones in the third phase. The phases occurred from 12,000 to 9600 BCE.Hundreds of Natufian graves have been excavated in Israel, Jordan, Syria, and Lebanon.In 2008, the grave of a Natufian ‘priestess’ was discovered (in most media reports referred to as a shaman or witch doctor ). The burial contained complete shells of 50 tortoises, which are thought to have been brought to the site and eaten during the funeral feast
http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/11/081104-israel-shaman-missions.html
c. 12,000 BC Round wooden houses, oak woodland and massive stone structures,hunter gatherers with flint blades and sickles and priestess shaman ,these are proto-Celtic people. Not only were there women Druids but from written accounts it is known that women also fought in battle. Diodorus described Celtic women as being “nearly as big and strong as their husbands and as fierce.” By c.11,000 BC the ice sheets would melt and reveal Central and then Northern Europe.The first hunter gatherers arrive in Scotland c.10,800 BC but probably settled in the North Sea basin before it flooded c.4,000BC.Its then we see,and still can see today in the British Isles, massive stone structures and roundhouses.Also sickles and Druidic Prietesses meeting in oak woodlands.

So it would seem the “Holy Land” belongs to the Celtic peoples. So if the Jews would like to send the rent checks made payable to the Aryan Celtic Nations ,we’ll say no more.As the land now belongs to the Palestinians they can stay there free of charge as long as they take good care of it.  ;-)

In the 10th millennium BC, Invention of agriculture is the earliest given date for the beginning of the ancient era. In the 7th millennium BC, Jiahu culture began in China. By the 5th millennium BC, the late Neolithic civilizations saw the invention of the wheel and spread of proto-writing. In the 4th millennium BC, the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture in the Ukraine-Moldova-Romania region develops. By 3400 BC, “proto-literate” Sumerian cuneiform is spread in the Middle East. The 30th century BC, referred to as the Early Bronze Age II, saw the beginning of the literate period in Sumer and Ancient Egypt arise. Around ca. 27th century BC, the Old Kingdom of Egypt and the First Dynasty of Uruk are founded
China -Jiahu (?? pinyin: Jiahú) was the site of a Neolithic Yellow River settlement based in the central plains of ancient China, modern Wuyang, Henan Province. Archaeologists consider the site to be one of the earliest examples of the Peiligang culture. Settled from 7000 to 5800 BC, the site was later flooded and abandoned
Archaeologists have divided Jiahu into three distinct phases. The oldest phase ranges from 7000 to 6600 BC. The middle phase ranges from 6600 to 6200 BC. The last phase ranges from 6200 to 5800 BCThe inhabitants of Jiahu cultivated foxtail millet and rice. rice cultivation at Jiahu is unique. Jiahu rice cultivation is one of the earliest found, and the most northerly found at such an early stage in history.
Over 300 burials have been unearthed at Jiahu, accompanied by burial offerings. Burial objects range from pottery to tortoise shells. One of the most significant offerings discovered were playable tonal flutes.Jiahu yielded some of the oldest pottery yet found in Neolithic China. Scientists from the University of Pennsylvania applied chemical analysis to pottery jars from Jiahu and found evidence of alcohol fermented from rice, honey and hawthorn
At Jiahu, archaeologists identified eleven markings Jiahu script, nine on tortoise shells and two on bone, as possible evidence for proto-writing. The markings correspond to the middle phase. Some of the markings are quite similar to later Chinese characters; two of the most intriguing marks appear to be similar to later characters for eye (?) and sun (?).

Europe East The Cucuteni-Trypillian culture, also known as Cucuteni culture (Romanian), Trypillian culture (from Ukrainian) or Tripolie culture (from Russian), is a late Neolithic archaeological culture that flourished between ca. 5500 BC and 2750 BC in the Dniester-Dnieper region of modern-day Romania, Moldova, and Ukraine.J.P. Mallory reports that the
culture is attested from well over a thousand sites in the form of everything from small villages to vast settlements comprised of hundreds of dwellings surrounded by multiple ditches
The inhabitants were involved with animal husbandry and agriculture, fishing and gathering. Wheat, Rye and peas were grown. Tools included ploughs made of antlers, stone, bone and sharpened sticks. The harvest was collected with scythes made of flint inlaid blades. The grain was milled by stone wheels. Women were involved in pottery, clothing and played a leading role in community life. Men hunted, looked out for the cattle, made tools from flint, bone and stone. Cattle were important and pigs, sheep and goats took a secondary place. The horse was domesticated. Female statues and amulets were made of clay. Rarely one comes across copper items, primarily bracelets, rings and hooks. One settlement in Korbuni, Moldova had a large number of copper items, primarily jewelry which were dated back to the beginning of the 5th millennium BC
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cucuteni-Trypillian_culture
Europe West Celtic Culture- It is believed that the first post-glacial groups of hunter-gatherers arrived in Scotland around 12,800 years ago(10800 BC), as the ice sheet retreated after the last glaciation The Orkney islands may have been attached to the mainland, as was the present-day island of Great Britain to Continental Europe. Much of the North Sea basin was also dry land until after 4000 BC. This would have made travel to northern Scotland relatively easy for early human settlers.Little is known of the people who settled in the Hebrides but they were likely of the same Celtic stock that had settled in the rest of Scotland.Scholars say that people arrived in Ireland after 8000 B.C. via land bridges from Scotland. These land bridges were submerged by c.7000 B.C. The first inhabitants were Mesolithic (Middle Stone Age) hunters and gatherers.
Groups of settlers began building the first known permanent houses on Scottish soil around 9,500 years ago, and the first villages around 6,000 years ago (4000 BC).It is possible earlier settlements are now under the North Sea(Atlantis or Flood myth?).Late Mesolithic hunter-gatherers are known to have occupied constructed lakeshore platforms in central and northwest Ireland at c.4500 BC. Neolithic crannogs are also known in Scotland. The islet of Eilean Domhnuill, Loch Olabhat on North Uist may be the earliest crannóg, dated to 3200-2800 BC in the Neolithic period.A variant of the crannóg was the island roundhouse. Built on a small, rocky island in a lochan and usually reached by means of a causeway, these are extremely common in the Western Isles
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crannog
A stone circle is different from a henge or isolated monolith, although each of these features is often encountered in a single location. Earlier features, such as the Goseck circle in Saxony-Anhalt, may have served similar religious/calendrical/astronomical purposes, though probably at a much earlier epoch. Stone circles usually date from the late Neolithic / early Stone Age, that is, c. 7000-3500 B.C
Often oriented on sight lines for the rising or setting sun or moon at certain times of the year, it seems likely that for their builders the cycle of seasons was very important.Ardnadam Burial Chamber is also known as Adam’s Grave Cromlech. It is a Neolithic burial site which would have been covered by a cairn. The burial chamber is about nine feet in length. The chamber is dated about 5000 B.C. making it over 7000 years old

Historically, Anglesey has long been associated with the Druids.Anglesey is rich in prehistoric remains. The first evidence of humans on the island comes from the Mesolithic period, about 7000 BC. Throughout the next several millennia, the various tribes that occupied Anglesey erected numerous stone burial chambers, standing stones, and hill forts, many of which survived the ages in good condition and can be visited today.
Skara Brae (pronounced /’sk?r? ‘bre?/) is a large stone-built Neolithic settlement, located on the Bay of Skaill on the west coast of mainland Orkney, Scotland. It consists of ten clustered houses, and was occupied from roughly 3100-2500BC. It is Europe’s most complete Neolithic village The dwellings contain a number of stone-built pieces of furniture, including cupboards, dressers, seats, and storage boxes. A sophisticated drainage system was even incorporated into the village’s design, one that included a primitive form of toilet in each dwelling.The eighth house has no storage boxes or dresser, but has been divided into something resembling small cubicles. When this house was excavated, fragments of stone, bone and antler were found. It is possible that this building was used as a workshop to make simple tools such as bone needles or flint axes A comparable — if smaller — site exists at Rinyo on Rousay.
Knap of Howar on the Orkney island of Papa Westray, is a well preserved Neolithic farmstead. Dating from 3500 BC to 3100 BC, it is similar in design to Skara Brae, but from an earlier period, and it is thought to be the oldest preserved standing building in northern Europe.Unstan ware is the name used by archaeologists for a type of finely made and decorated Neolithic pottery from the 4th millennium BC. Typical are elegant, round based bowls with a band of grooved patterning below the rim.It is named after Unstan chambered cairn and fort on the Mainland of the Orkney Islands, a fine example of a stalled burial chamber in a circular mound, where the style of pottery was first found.It has been found at many sites including Knap of Howar, Balbridie and Eilean Domhnuill.Unstan ware may have evolved into the later grooved ware style,

The rest ,as they say , is history!

BLOW YOURSELFS UP if you want and take your pathetic myths with you,you created nothing anyway,but THE EARTH WILL NOT DISAPPEAR!! IT WILL just LOOK UGLY for a million years…… THANKS TO YOU, UNBELIEVER AND YOUR GODS WORK!!!

Hopefully SOMETHING MORE INTELLIGENT AND COMPASIONATE will EVOLVE later and prove itself WORTHY OF EXISTANCE ON MY GODS WONDEROUS CREATION!! A million years is nothing to MY GOD!! It would be the DEATH of all of YOURS.

MY PRIESTS re-write OUR BOOKS ,but that is because WE SEEK the ULTIMATE TRUTH!

YOUR PRIESTS re-write YOUR BOOKS to HIDE the ULTIMATE TRUTH!

YOUR BOOK says the Earth is flat and the sun revolves around it, and the sky is held up on 4 pillars.ITS THE WORD OF YOUR GOD

MY BOOK says the Earth is a sphereoid that revolves around the sun, and the sky is light difused through atmosphere. THAT’S THE WORD OF MINE

WHICH ONE DO YOU TRULEY BELIEVE??

The only future YOUR BELIEF has is either its exstinction or humanity’s in an Armegeddon ,your belief system IS THE EMBODIMENT OF EVIL!

TRIBAL GODS ,I RAGE AGAINST YOU(but as you do not exist I’ll just have a cup of tea instead,just as well ,I would feel guilty beating up an old man)

BUT actually…BELIEVE WHAT YOU WILL, JUST BE GOOD, maybe I’ll burn in HELL ,but MY FAITH says I will NOT,variety is the spice of life is it not . BUT if YOUR BELIEFS are used to JUSTIFY THEFT and MURDER and DESTRUCTION, I SPIT ON THEM AND YOU!

NOW if we open our Scientific hymn books we will sing our PRAISE TO GRAVITY.(sung to Ghostbusters theme)

Have you got a god ? that you need rid of? Who you gonna call?

GODBUSTERS!!!

A fanatical dude ,in your neighbourhood? Who you gonna call?

GODBUSTERS!!!

………………………….I AIN”T AFRAID OF NO GOD?!

AND SO ENDS THIS SERMON

“thought for the day ,to the god squad”

IF THERE IS A GOD IT IS IRRELEVANT IF YOU BELIEVE IN HIM/HER/THEM OR NOT!

WHAT WOULD BE IMPORTANT IS THAT GOD BELIEVES IN YOU AND THE THINGS THAT YOU DO!!!

BTW. I SMILE AT WHAT I SEE IN THE MIRROR EVERY MORNING,I AM AT PEACE WITH MY GOD ,

BUT MAYBE GRAVITY IS A MYTH AND THE EARTH JUST SUCKS!!

God does not scare me its his followers that worry me.

If you feel religious.its your choice, there are plenty of inoffensive religions to choose from but..

The Invention of Islam

September 2, 2009

islam
Abrahamic monotheism is just original fascism
ALL Abrahamic monotheism (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) is an invention to control hearts and minds and can be traced back to a man and a motive.
Cyrus the Great and Aryan monotheistic Zoroastrainism for Judaism.
Originally “Judaism” was a fertility cult (Baal/El, Set/Amen) coverted to Zoraostrianism by Cyrus the Great
Constantine the Great and Aryan monotheistic sun worship for christianity,(Sol Invictus/Mithras)
which got officially converted to messianic Judaism c.787AD
Othman the Third Caliph for Islam. Originally it was Semitic polythestic moon worship which was converted to nestorian messianic Judaism.
ALL These conversions where done by FORCE!!
Abrahamic monothisms stories are myths taken from ancient Aryan beliefs.Beliefs that can be traced back 18,000 years.
But there are even older beliefs like snake worship beliefs that can be traced back to Africa over 70,000 years ago!!
Abrahamic monotheism is a New Age belief!
That age is the “age of Piceses” which began about 2,000 years ago and there is something very fishy about it!
For secular people this is just confirming your suspiscions
For spiritual people this is a wake up call…YOU ARE WORSHIPPING FALSE GODS

Abrahamic Monotheism Part 1 – The Invention of Judaism
http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-judaism/
Abrahamic Monotheism Part 2 – The Invention of Christianity
http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-christianity/
Abrahamic Monotheism Part 3 – The Invention of Islam

http://cuthulan.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/the-invention-of-islam/

Abrahamic religions (also Abrahamism) are the monotheistic faiths of Middle East origin, emphasizing and tracing their common origin to Abraham or recognizing a spiritual tradition identified with him. They are one of the major divisions in comparative religion, along with Indian religions(Dharmic) and East Asian religions (Taoic).
As of the early twenty-first century, it was estimated that 54% of the world’s population (3.8 billion people) considered themselves adherents of the Abrahamic religions, about 30% of other religions, and 16% of no organized religion
The Abrahamic religions in chronological order of founding are Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Bahá’í Faith
Christians refer to Abraham as a “father in faith”. There is an Islamic religious term, Millat Ibrahim (faith of Ibrahim), indicating that Islam sees itself as having practices tied to the traditions of Abraham. Jewish tradition claims descendance from Abraham
In the 19th century and 20th centuries Judaism developed a small number of branches, of which the most significant are Orthodox, Conservative, and Reform.
Since its founding, Christianity has divided into three main branches (Catholic, Orthodox, and Protestant)
Soon after its founding Islam split into two main branches (Sunni and Shi’a), each of which now have a number of denominations
Lesser-known Abrahamic religions, originally offshoots of Shi’a Islam, include the Bahá’í Faith and Druze
The unifying characteristic of Abrahamic religions is that all accept the tradition that God revealed himself to the patriarch Abraham.All are monotheistic, and conceive God to be a transcendent Creator-figure and the source of moral law, and their sacred narratives feature many of the same figures, histories, and places in each, although they often present them with different roles, perspectives, and meanings.
All Abrahamic religions claim to be monotheistic, worshiping an exclusive God, though known by different names. All of these religions believe that God creates, is one, rules, reveals, loves, judges, punishes, and forgives. However, although Christianity does not profess to believe in three gods — but rather three persons, or hypostases, united in one essence — the Trinitarian doctrine, which is a fundamental of faith for the vast majority of Christian denominations, conflicts with Jewish and Muslim concepts of monotheism. Since the conception of divine Trinity is not amenable to tawhid, the Islamic doctrine of monotheism, Islam considers Christianity to be variously polytheistic or idolatrous.

ISLAM
POLYTHEISTIC MOON WORSHIP PAGANISM CONVERTED TO MONOTHEISTIC MESSIANIC JUDAISM
THE SPREAD OF ISLAMIC ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM THROUGH ARABIA
BRINGS BLOODSHED ,IGNORANCE ,BANDITRY ,SLAVERY AND A SUBJUGATION OF WOMAN
SPREAD BY THE SWORD AND MASS BEHEADINGS

Muslims believe that God revealed the Qur’an to Muhammad, God’s final prophet, through the angel Gabriel, and regard the Qur’an and the Sunnah (words and deeds of Muhammad) as the fundamental sources of Islam. They do not regard Muhammad as the founder of a new religion, but as the restorer of the original monotheistic faith of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and other prophets. Islamic tradition holds that Jews and Christians distorted the revelations God gave to these prophets by either altering the text, introducing a false interpretation, or both.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam

Ever wonder what Mecca was like before Mohammed was born? It must have been a fascinating place, for it was a trading center, a melting pot of different cultures. Traders were there of many different religions.

PRE-ISLAMIC PAGAN ARABIA

According to Arabic history books, the Quraysh tribe was a branch of the Banu Kinanah tribe, which descended from the Mudhar. For several generations they were spread about among other tribal groupings. About five generations before Muhammad the situation was changed by Qusai ibn Kilab. By war and diplomacy he assembled an alliance that delivered to him the keys of the Kaaba, an important pagan shrine which brought revenues to Mecca because of the multitude of pilgrims that it attracted. He then gathered his fellow tribesmen to settle at Mecca,
There were some rivalries among the clans, and these became especially pronounced during Muhammad’s lifetime.

The Quraysh tribe there worshipped Hubal, Al-ilah, and Al-ilah’s three daughters. A black rock from heaven was held in high esteem and placed in a corner of the Ka’bah. The Ka’bah was the center of worship of 360 idols according to the Bukhari vol.3 book 43 ch.33 no.658 p.396 and vol.5 book 59 ch.47 no.583 p.406.

Writing in the Encyclopedia of Islam, Wensinck identifies Mecca with a place called Macoraba mentioned by Ptolemy. His text is believed to date from the second century A.D., about 400 years before the coming of Muhammad, and described it as a foundation in southern Arabia, built around a sanctuary
According to Sarwar, about 400 years before the birth of Muhammad, a man named “Amr bin Lahyo bin Harath bin Amr ul-Qais bin Thalaba bin Azd bin Khalan bin Babalyun bin Saba”, who was descended from Qahtan and was the king of Hijaz (the northwestern section of Saudi Arabia, which encompassed the cities of Mecca and Medina), had placed a Hubal idol onto the roof of the Kaaba. This idol was one of the chief deities of the ruling Quraysh. The idol was made of red agate and shaped like a human, but with the right hand broken off and replaced with a golden hand. When the idol was moved inside the Kaaba, it had seven arrows in front of it, which were used for divination.[5]
To maintain peace among the perpetually warring tribes, Mecca was declared a sanctuary where no violence was allowed within 20 miles (32 km) of the Kaaba. This combat-free zone allowed Mecca to thrive not only as a place of pilgrimage, but also as a trading center
In her book, Islam: A Short History, Karen Armstrong asserts that the Kaaba was dedicated to Hubal, a Nabatean deity, and contained 360 idols that either represented the days of the year[1] or were effigies of the Arabian pantheon. Once a year, tribes from all around the Arabian peninsula, whether Christian or pagan, would converge on Mecca to perform the Hajj.
Imoti[2] contends that there were multiple such “Kaaba” sanctuaries in Arabia at one time, but this was the only one built of stone. The others also allegedly had counterparts of the Black Stone. There was a “red stone”, the deity of the south Arabian city of Ghaiman, and the “white stone” in the Kaaba of al-Abalat (near the city of Tabala, south of Mecca). Grunebaum in Classical Islam points out that the experience of divinity of that period was often associated with stone fetishes, mountains, special rock formations, or “trees of strange growth.”[3] The Kaaba was thought to be at the center of the world, with the Gate of Heaven directly above it. The Kaaba marked the location where the sacred world intersected with the profane; the embedded Black Stone was a further symbol of this as a meteorite that had fallen from the sky and linked heaven and earth

The genuine antiquity of Caaba ascends beyond the Christian era: in describing the coast of the Red sea the Greek historian Diodorus has remarked, between the Thamudites and the Sabeans, a famous temple, whose superior sanctity was revered by all the Arabians; the linen of silken veil, which is annually renewed by the Turkish emperor, was first offered by the Homerites, who reigned seven hundred years before the time of Mohammad.
—Edward Gibbon, Decline And Fall Of The Roman Empire, Volume V, pp. 223–224

The Encyclopedia of Islam (edited by Eliade) p.303ff says the people, prior to Islam, would pray five times toward Mecca and fast for part of a day for an entire month.
The Quraysh fasted on the 10th of Myharram/Muharram. Mohammed ordered this too, but later it was optional (Bukhari vol.5 book 58 ch.25 no.172 p.109), also Bukhari vol.6 book 60 ch.24 no.31 p.25.
Pre-Islamic Arabs made pilgrimages (‘Umrah) to Mecca. Fiqh us-Sunnah vol.5 p.122, and Bukhari vol.2 book 26 ch.33 no.635 p.371-372 say they thought not performing ‘Umrah was one of the major sins on earth. At Mecca they covered the Ka’bah with cloth Fiqh vol.5 p.131, and they had a sacred month of no war prior to Islam (Bukhari vol.2 book 23 ch.96 no.482 p.273).
Many primitive people worshipped a sun god and a moon goddess. Western Arabs were unusual in worshipping a moon god and his wife, the sun goddess. There are pre-Islamic statues of his symbol: the crescent moon. It looks just like the crescent moon of Shi’ite Muslims, except the Shi’ites added a small star. The Yemenites/Sabaeans had a moon god according to the Encyclopedia of Islam p.303.
Generically, the word “Allah” likely was a contraction of the Arabic Al-ilah, which means “the god”. Both Arab Christians and pagans used the word Ilah for God.
Prior to Mohammed, the Ka’bah, which housed 360 idols, was called Beit-Allah, or “House of Allah”. Mohammed’s father, who died before he was born, was named ‘Abdullah meaning slave of Allah. Also, a tribe of Jews was called ‘Abdullah bin Salam in Bukhari vol.5 book 59 ch.13 no.362 p.241.
Specifically, among the idols worshipped at Mecca, one was just called “Allah”. This particular idol was the tribal god of the Quraysh, and he had three specific daughters.
The Meccans before Mohammed fasted on the same day, gave alms to their own, prayed toward Mecca, and made pilgrimages (‘Umrah) to Mecca. There were many differences too, but some marvel in the continuity of these unchanged practices in common with the pagan Quraysh worship.

Womans rights take a beating as well. Pre-Islamic Arab women where powerful in society,they also ran businesses and could decide who to marry .This is proven by Khadijah, Mohammads first wive

Khadijah earned two titles: Ameerat-Quraish (Princess of Quraish) and al-Tahira (the Pure One), and Khadija Al-Kubra (khadija the great)and was said to have had an impeccable character. She used to feed and clothe the poor, assist her relatives financially, and provide for the marriage of those of her kin who could not otherwise have had the means to marry. By 585, Khadijah was left a widow. Despite having married twice, and twice losing her husband to the ravaging wars to which Arabia was subjected, she showed no inclination to marry a third time, even though she was sought for marriage by many honorable and highly respected men of the Arabian peninsula, throughout which she was quite famous, due to her business dealings. She did not want to be widowed for a third time.
THE WISDOM OF ISLAM IS ALL STOLEN
AND JUST LIKE PREVIOUS VERSIONS OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM(JUDAISM AND CHRISTIANITY) THEY CLAIM THIS KNOWLEDGE FOR THEMSELVES AND DENY THEIR TRUE ORIGINS
The works Claudius Ptolemy and pagan Greek sciences generally were preserved by the Ishmaelites.
aina.org/books/hgsptta.pdf
These included occult sciences such as alchemy derived from pagan Hellenic and other civilizations such as Hindu India.

sophiaperennis.com/eberly_alkimia_toc.html
The Arabs (not including the Gulf Arabs) and Muslims had the benefit of rich pre-islamic Architecture, Medicine, Science, Literature, Astronomy and History (even though much of it was burned and/or destroyed), whereas the West had not for the most part. Society was still advancing (in many parts stagnant) at a slower pace than before Mohammed. This is all what separated the Caliphate from Christendom. Islam and Christianity are on two sides of the same coin. Islam didn’t advance the world anymore than Christianity did. Actually the Arabs themselves (Gulf Arabs, not the arabized peoples west and north) were not sophisticated by any means. All they did was take pre-islamic art, architecture, science, mathematics and then claim it as Arabic and Islamic. That said most Islamic advancements actually came from Persians and Persia who never forgot their pre-islamic history and many pre-islamic concepts.

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM ARRIVES IN ARABIA
ISLAM STARTS OUT AS NESTORIANISM

All early Christian writers such as Nicetas Choniates of Byzantium and Bartholomew of Edessa classed Mohammdanism as a heresy rather than a brand new religion. Traditional papist historians such as Hilaire Belloc echo this view.

ewtn.com/library/HOMELIBR/HBISLAM.TXT
newadvent.org/cathen/02315c.htm

The religion of Mohammed is a heresy as it is a branch of Nestorianism. The history of their connection is described by Saint John of Damascus in his book ‘The Heresy of the Ishmaelites’ which constitutes a small part of his monumental work ‘The Fount of Knowledge’:
http://www.worldcatlibraries.org/wcpa/ow/c020e6c708cf40a7.html
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_of_Damascus
orthodoxinfo.com/general/stjohn_islam.aspx

Nestorius was a Hellenic (Greek) Patriarch of Constantinople from 428–431  who propounded the heresy that the Virgin Mary was not the Mother of God as he believed that Lord Jesus the Christ was not God but only a man, a prophet as expressed in his book the Bazaar of Hercleides. Nestorius’s blasphemous heresy was condemned, but he gained many followers among the Persians (Iranians) with the consequence that by the end of the fifth century a schism occurred as much of the Church in Iran and many places in the East had apostasized into Nestorianism.

Nestorius was born around 381/386 in Germanicia in the Roman province of Syria (now Kahramanmaraş in Turkey). He received his clerical training as a pupil of Theodore of Mopsuestia in Antioch and gained a reputation for his sermons that led to his enthronement by Theodosius II as Archbishop following the death of Sisinnius I in 428.
his most forceful opponent was Patriarch Cyril of Alexandria.The Emperor Theodosius II (401–450) was eventually induced to convoke a general church council, sited at Ephesus
The Emperor and his wife supported Nestorius while Pope Celestine I supported Cyril.
Cyril took charge of the First Council of Ephesus in 431, opening debate before the long-overdue contingent of Eastern bishops from Antioch arrived.
But while the council was in progress, John I of Antioch and the eastern bishops arrived, and were furious to hear that Nestorius had already been condemned. They convened their own synod, at which Cyril was deposed. Both sides then appealed to the emperor. Initially the imperial government ordered both Nestorius and Cyril deposed and exiled. However, Cyril was eventually allowed to return after bribing various courtiers.

This Christian sect that constituted a large part, maybe even the majority of Christians in Arabia and the Middle East during the time of Muhammad. This group was very missions oriented.

 Ruins of Monastery of Monk Bohira in Bosra, Syria


Ruins of Monastery of Monk Bohira in Bosra, Syria

Bahira is a Nestorian monk that Muhammad was supposed to have met during a trip returning from Syria to Mecca. His Christian name was supposed to be Sergius or Georgius. The Muslim traditions say that Bahira recognized, through various signs, that Muhammad is a prophet.

When Mohammed was twelve years old (circa AD 582), he accompanied his merchant uncle Abu Talib on a caravan to Bosrah, a city in southern Syria. While he was in that city, Mohammed met a Nestorian monk named Bohira who befriended the boy. According to Saint John of Damascus, Bohira laid a plan to make Mohammed the founder of a new religion and became his mentor. Bohira authored much of the Koran.
Apparently, the oldest known existing history of the encounter is written by Hunayn Ibn Ishak, a Nestorian writer (who quotes the earlier writer Ibn Hisham). This fact is a sore point with Mohammedan historians who deny that many of Ibn Ishak’s details are true and rely on later writers who “purged” Ibn Ishak’s history of inconveniences.
nestorian.org/hunein_ibn_ishak.html
Mohammed’s meeting with the monk is described in the Koran, although muslims deny that Bohira became Mohammed’s mentor.
thetruecall.com/home/modules.php?name=News&file=article&sid=50
There are suggestions that Bahira stayed with Muhammad and taught him as alluded to in Surah xvi.105.
“Husain the commentator says on this passage that the Prophet was in the habit of going every evening to a Christian to hear the Taurat and Injil.” (Hughes’ Dictionary of Islam, p. 30, quoting Tafsir-i-Husaini, Sale p. 223 and Muir’s Life of Mahomet, p. 72)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nestorian

The Orthodox Christian account of this history is further confirmed by the correspondence between Nestorian and Mohammedan theology. The Mohammedan position on Christology is identical with that of the Nestorians. The Mohammedans believe that Jesus Christ was merely a prophet. They deny that He is God. In other words, the Mohammedans believe that Jesus Christ was only a man just like the Nestorians (and Jews) believe. Nestorianism is the predecessor of mohammedanism as islam conquered precisely those countries such as Persia where nestorianism went before. A muslim community has existed at the terminus of the Silke Road in Xian, China since circa 750 AD. Ancient monographs recorded on the backs of stone turtles at the ancient mosque in Xian record the early history of mohammedanism in wstern China. The famous Forest of Steles in Xian which contains the stone monograph histries of ancient China (most of them on the backs of turtles) contains a stele which records the history of the first 150 years of nestorianism in China from 630 to 780 AD.

WAS MUHAMMAD HEN PECKED INTO ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM?
WAS HIS WIFE KHADIJAH AND HER FAMILY BEHIND THE POWER PLAY?

It seems Khadijah and her family where the creators of Islam and poor old Mohammad is just a patsy, and an opportunist  bandit! It seems Khadijah’s family where the ones intent on bringing monotheism to Arabia.

“(O Muhammad) ask those who are reading the book before thee.” The Muslim historian Tabari further tells us Khadija (the first wife of the Prophet) read the former scriptures and knew the stories of the prophets.” Now Muhammad lived with Khadija for some fifteen years before he began to announce his mission, and when it is remembered that during that period he must also have had close and frequent intercourse with Waraqa, the cousin of his wife, who was in turn both Hanif and Christian, and was the translator of the Christian scriptures into Arabic, the reader is at no difficulty to understand whence the Prophet obtained his knowledge of the Jewish Rabbinical fables.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waraquah
Waraqah ibn Nawfal, Waraqah ibn Nawfal ibn Assad ibn Abd al-Uzza ibn Qusayy Al-Qurashi (Arabic ???? ?? ???? ?? ??? ?? ??? ?????? ?? ??? ?????? died circa 610) was the parental cousin of Khadija, Muhammad’s first wife.
Waraqah was a “Christian” Ebionites priest living in Mecca, and had knowledge of the previous scriptures. When told of Muhammad’s first revelation (when he received the first five verses of surat Al-Alaq), he immediately recognised him as a prophet.

According to hadith, Al-Haakim reported with a saheeh (authentic) isnad from Aisha that Muhammad said, “Do not slander Waraqah ibn Nawfal for I have seen that he will have one or two gardens in Paradise.”
According to the Sirah Rasul Allah, the traditional Muslim biographies of Muhammad, which speak highly of Waraqah, he was a pious and knowledgeable person who had knowledge of the previous prophetic scriptures such of that of Jesus. He recognized the signs of prophethood soon after Muhammad received the first of the revelations. Some Muslims regard this as a specific fulfillment of Isaiah 29:11-18.

During the reception of the first revelation, Muhammad was distressed at seeing the vision of an angel. He was consoled by Khadija who took him to Waraqah, who then told Muhammad that the angel he had seen, Gabriel, was the same one God had sent to Moses. Waraqah also told Muhammad that – as had happened to the previous prophets – his people would drive him out into exile, and that (if he lived long enough, for he was old) he would support Muhammad in the cause. However, Waraqah died a few days after this meeting.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ebionites

The Ebionites were a Jewish-Christian sect that insisted on the necessity of following Jewish religious law and rites, which they interpreted in light of Jesus’ expounding of the Law. They regarded Jesus as the Messiah but not as divine. The Ebionites revered his brother James as the head of the Jerusalem Church and rejected Paul of Tarsus because he was an apostate towards the Law. Their name suggests that they placed a special value on religious poverty.

Much of what is known about the Ebionites derives from the Church Fathers, who wrote polemics against the Ebionites, whom they deemed heretical Judaizers. Some scholars agree with the substance of the traditional portrayal as an offshoot of mainstream Christianity. Many scholars distinguish the Ebionites from other Jewish Christian groups, e.g. the Nazarenes, while others contest this

Thus Jesus Christ is invariably spoken of with the deepest reverence as a Prophet sent from God, to whom was entrusted the Gospel, or Injil, as Muhammad described the Evangel. The many references, to Christians in the Qur’an make it clear that they must have been numerous in Arabia at that time; and Muhammad seems to have entertained no little friendship for them, as may be seen by the following advice given to his followers:-

“Thou shalt surely find those to be nearest in affection to them (i.e., true believers) who say, ‘We are Christians.'”1 Muhammad certainly had reason to reward the followers of Christ with grateful affection, for it was in the Christian Kingdom of Abyssinia that his persecuted followers found a safe asylum when the oppression of the Meccans had become intolerable.

THE JEWISH INFLUENCE

The role of judaism in the formation of sunni islam is evident. Sunni islam was the religion of the first muslim dynasty – the Ummayads whose capital was Damascus, Syria – the same country as Mohammed’s old mentor. Compared with Orthodox Christian Byzantium, the Mohammedan heresy represented a sharp turn of religion and culture in the direction of judaism, an indication of its sponsors. The Ummayad dynasty lasted little more than a 125 years during which time it greatly expanded politically. During these years even mohammedan historians attest that the populations of the countries which the Ummayads conquered remained entirely Orthodox Christian. This indicates that during its early history, Mohammedanism was a religion of a wealthy elite which infers jewish participation. Certainly, jews had everything to gain from the expansion of islam. Jewish power was far more unfettered in Mohammedan countries than in Orthodox Christian lands whose laws condemned the jewish religion. The sharia law of mohammedanism elevated jews to the status of “people of the Book” while lowering Christians to a minority religion. The influence of the Orthodox Chistian Church declined while jewish power benefited from the early expansion of saracen power.
A setback to jewish strategy ocurred with the reactionary shiite revolution. The Ummayad caliph was assasinated and mohammedanism stopped its barbarous expansion once the comparatively more benign shiites took power about AD 749 in the form of the Abassid dynasty. The jewish diaspora’s capitol was the city of Babylon in those days, and the rabbis were apparently well prepared as the King of Khazaria in Scythia (Russia) converted to judaism at exactly this juncture in time. The Byzantine Empire officially convert to messianic judaism st this time too .Economic activity and slave trading was henceforth centered in the more northern Slavic lands during the high Middle Ages which is when the shiite Abassids dominated islam. Possibly, the Karaite reaction against Talmudism within judaism initiated by David Ben Anan in Persia during the seventh century with a view of returning to essenism played a part in loosening judaism’s grip upon mohammedanism in precisely those countries from which shiism emerged.

BUT ISLAM STILL SHOWS ITS PAGAN ROOTS

Allah had three daughters named Lat, ‘Uzza, and Manat. At one time the “prophet of Allah” compromised and said in the Qur’an (Sura 53:19) that “their intercession was to be hoped for.” In other words, he said we should hope for the help of these three idols.
Mohammed’s followers must have been amazed that he said this. Later, Mohammed changed his mind and said Satan deceived him. Since a mistake was made, these verses were “abrogated” or taken out. These are often called “the Satanic verses.”

Satanic Verses is an expression coined by the historian Sir William Muir in reference to the inclusion in the Qur’an of a small number of apparently pagan verses said to have been uttered by Muhammad. Some Muslims refer to the utterance of the two verses as the Gharaniq incident. Narratives involving these verses can be read in, among other places, the biographies of Muhammad by al-Wāqidī, Ibn Sa’d, al-Tabarī, and Ibn Ishaq (the latter as reconstructed by Alfred Guillaume).

THE SPREAD OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IN ARABIA …ISLAMIC BRANCH

Muhammad was born in Mecca around 571 CE into the Quraish tribe.

Clan leaders did not appreciate Muhammad’s claim of prophethood and tried to silence him by putting pressure on his uncle, Abu Talib. Many of the clans also began to oppose the followers of Muhammad, for example by boycotting them.
Muhammad failed to bring his “new” religion by peaceful methods. His religious arguements failed to change the minds of the pagans and thier beliefs.In 622, to escape persecution of Muslims by the Meccans, Muhammad and many of his followers migrated from Mecca to the neighboring city of Medina. This migration is called the Hijra.
The people of Mecca, even of his own tribe, rejected him. After 13 years of persecution and hatred,Muhammad himself would later emigrate to Yathrib, now Medina. he moved his center of activity north to Yathrib, which then became known as al-Mad?nah (Medina), the city of the prophet. This emigration, or the hijrah, in 622?C.E. marked a significant point in Isl?mic history, and the date was later adopted as the starting point for the Isl?mic calendar. A number of early Muslims took refuge with the Christian king of Abyssinia,

MUHAMMAD THE BANDIT AND BEHEADER……FOR GOD

Muhammad was to return to Mecca ,this time he would bring convertion by the sword and the Islamic trail of slaughter against pagans begins.

Following the hijra, tensions between Mecca and Medina escalated and hostilities broke out in 623 when the Muslims began a series of raids (called ghazawāt in Arabic) on Quraishi caravans.
Ghazawāt
(s. ghazw) were plundering raids organized by nomadic Bedouin warriors against either rival tribes or wealthier, sedentary neighbors. Since Medina was located just off Mecca’s main trade route, the Muslims were in an ideal position to do this. Even though many Muslims were Quraish themselves, they believed that they were entitled to such raids because the Meccans had expelled them from their property, homes and tribes, a serious offense in hospitality-oriented Arabia. Also, there was a tradition in Arabia of poor tribes raiding richer tribes. It also provided a means for the Muslim community to carve out an independent economic position at Medina, where their political position was far from secure. The Meccans obviously took a different view, seeing the Muslim raids as banditry at best, as well as a potential threat to their livelihood and prestige.
In late 623 and early 624, the Muslim ghazawāt grew increasingly brazen and commonplace. In September 623, Muhammad himself led a force of 200 in an unsuccessful raid against a large caravan. Shortly thereafter, the Meccans launched their own “raid” against Medina, although its purpose was just to steal some livestock which belonged to the Muslims.In January 624, the Muslims ambushed a Meccan caravan near Nakhlah, only forty kilometers outside of Mecca, killing one of the guards and formally inaugurating a blood feud with the Meccans. Worse, from a Meccan standpoint, the raid occurred in the month of Rajab, a truce month sacred to the Meccans in which fighting was prohibited and a clear affront to their pagan traditions
Mohammed preyed upon caravans with his men. Bukhari vol.3 book 37 ch.8 no.495 p.280 says,
“When Allah made the prophet wealthy through conquests…” 1/5 of all spoils of war was put into treasury, and Sahih Muslim vol.2 book 5 ch.401 no.2348 p.519 says Mohammed’s family had a share out of that. The Muslims first looting is known as the Nakhla Raid.
During the traditional month of truce, his followers ambushed a caravan, killing one, enslaving the rest, and taking the plunder. Mohammed himself led the second raid at Badr. Mohammed added to his wealth by attacking the Jewish settlement of Khaibar. He and his loyal men got plunder and wives (Mohammed needed another wife?) of the 700-1,000 Jewish men of the Banu Quraiza tribe they beheaded after they surrendered.
 The Quraysh fought many battles against Muhammad, one major clash was the Battle of Badr, where the Quraysh were defeated, the event was seen as a turning point for Muslims

For the early Muslims the battle was the first sign that they might eventually defeat their enemies among the Meccans. Mecca at that time was one of the richest and most powerful cities in Arabia
The Muslim victory also signalled other tribes that a new power had arisen in Arabia

As Paul K. Davis sums up, “Mohammed’s victory confirmed his authority as leader of Islam; by impressing local tribes that joined him, the expansion of Islam began.

After the battle Muhammad decided to return to Medina. While Muhammad was returning to Medina, he reportedly received a revelation regarding the distribution of war booty.

MUHAMMUD THE RELIGIOUS INTOLERANT

“Eventually, Muhammad achieved dominance when Mecca surrendered to him in January of 630C.E. (8 A.H.) and he became its ruler. With the reins of secular and religious control in his hands, he was able to clean out the idolatrous images from the Kahbah and establish it as the focal point for pilgrimages to Mecca that continue down to this day.

Mohammed places the Black Rock

Mohammed places the Black Rock

The Islamic prophet Muhammad solves a dispute over lifting the black stone into position at al-Kaaba.
Note from pp. 100-101 of “The illustrations to the World history of Rashid al-Din / David Talbot Rice ; edited by Basil Gray. Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, c1976.” -
In the center, Prophet Muhammad, with two long hair plaits, places the stone on a carpet held at the four corners by representatives of the four tribes, so that all have the honor of lifting it. The carpet is a kelim from Central Asia. Behind, two other men lift the black curtain which conceals the doors of the sanctuary. This work may be assigned to the Master of the Scenes from the Life of the Prophet.
After Muhammad’s conquest of Mecca in 630, he pardoned(convert or be beheaded i think is more accurate) most of those who had opposed him before, and peace among the different clans was maintained. After Muhammad’s death, clan rivalries reignited, playing central roles in the conflicts over the caliphate and contributing to the Shia-Sunni divide.
After the introduction of Islam, the Quraysh gained supremacy and produced the three dynasties of the Ummayad Caliphate, the Abbasid Caliphate and the Fatimid Caliphate. The split between the Shi’a and Sunni branches of Islam centers over the succession to Muhammad. The Sunnis believe Abu Bakr was elected as Muhammad’s successor while the Shi’a (literally “companions [of Ali]“) believe Muhammad appointed Ali ibn Abi Talib as his successor.

THE FIRST KORAN IS WRITTEN AFTER MUHUMMADS DEATH

the oldest Koran is drenched in blood
The Othman Koran is the oldest in the world
In an obscure corner of the Uzbek capital, Tashkent, lies one of Islam’s most sacred relics – the world’s oldest Koran.
It is a reminder of the role which Central Asia once played in Muslim history – a fact often overlooked after seven decades of Soviet-imposed atheism.
The library where the Koran is kept is in an area of old Tashkent known as Hast-Imam, well off the beaten track for most visitors to this city.
It lies down a series of dusty lanes, near the grave of a 10th century scholar, Kaffel-Shashi.The Mufti of Uzbekistan, the country’s highest religious leader, has his offices there, in the courtyard of an old madrassa.Just across the road stands a non-descript mosque and the equally unremarkable Mui-Mubarak, or “Sacred Hair”, madrassa, which houses a rarely seen hair of the Muslim Prophet Muhammad, as well as one of Central Asia’s most important collections of historical works.
”There are approximately 20,000 books and 3000 manuscripts in this library,” said Ikram Akhmedov, a young assistant in the mufti’s office.
”They deal with mediaeval history, astronomy and medicine. There are also commentaries on the Koran and books of law. But the oldest book here is the Othman Koran from the seventh century.”
Sacred verses
The Othman Koran was compiled in Medina by Othman, the third caliph or Muslim leader.Before him, the sacred verses which Muslims believe God gave to Muhammad were memorised, or written on pieces of wood or camel bone.To prevent disputes about which verses should be considered divinely inspired, Othman had this definitive version compiled. It was completed in the year 651,  19 years after Muhammad’s death.
This priceless Koran is kept in a special glass-fronted vault built into the wall of a tiny inner room.
About one-third of the original survives – about 250 pages – a huge volume written in a bold Arabic script.
”The Koran was written on deerskin,” said Mr Akhmedov. “It was written in Hejaz in Saudi Arabia, so the script is Hejazi, similar to Kufic script.”
It is said that Caliph Othman made five copies of the original Koran. A partial Koran now in the Topkapi Palace in Istanbul is said to be another of these original copies.
Historical text
Othman was murdered by a rebellious mob while he was reading his book. A dark stain on its pages is thought to be the caliph’s blood.
It was Othman’s murder that precipitated the Shia-Sunni divide which has split the Muslim world ever since.
Later disputes over the succession led to a division between the mainstream Sunnis, and supporters of Othman’s immediate successor, Ali, who became Shias.

The story of how the Othman Koran came to Tashkent is a remarkable one.
After Othman’s death it is believed it was taken by Caliph Ali to Kufa, in modern Iraq. Seven hundred years later, when the Central Asian conqueror, Tamerlane, laid waste to the region, he found the Koran and took it home to grace his splendid capital, Samarkand.
It stayed there for more than four centuries, until the Russians conquered Samarkand in the 1868. The Russian governor then sent the Othman Koran to St Petersburg where it was kept in the Imperial Library.
But after the Bolshevik revolution, Lenin was anxious to win over the Muslims of Russia and Central Asia. Initially he sent the Koran to Ufa in modern Bashkortostan.
But finally, after repeated appeals from the Muslims of Tashkent, it was returned once more to Central Asia in 1924. It has remained in Tashkent ever since.
Visiting dignitaries from the Muslim world often turn up to see the Othman Koran in the depths of old Tashkent, so it is odd that it is still kept in such an out of the way location.
ut the authoritarian Uzbek government has inherited a Soviet-era distrust of Islam, and still views much of its own Islamic history with suspicion.
The mufti’s official religious establishment is closely watched and takes care not to attract too much attention to itself.
As a result, its greatest treasure, the world’s oldest Koran, continues to sit quietly in the medieval quarter of old Tashkent.

OTHER COMMENTRIES OR HADITHS ARE WRITTEN

THE BUKHARI

sahih al-Bukhari (Arabic: ???? ????????), is one of the Al-Kutub al-Sittah (six major hadiths) of Sunni Islam. These prophetic traditions, or hadith, were collected by the Persian Muslim scholar Muhammad al-Bukhari, after being transmitted orally for generations. Sunni Muslims view this as one of the three most trusted collections of hadith along with Sahih Muslim and Muwatta Imam Malik.[1] In some circles, it is considered the most authentic book after the Quran.[2][3] The Arabic word sahih translates as authentic or correct.
The book covers almost all aspects of life in providing proper guidance of Islam such as the method of performing prayers and other actions of worship directly from the Islamic prophet Muhammad. Bukhari finished his work around 846,
and spent the last twenty-four years of his life visiting other cities and scholars, teaching the hadith he had collected.
Amin Ahsan Islahi, the notable Islamic scholar, has listed three outstanding qualities of Sahih al-Bukhari:
1.Quality and soundness of the chain of narrators of the selected ahadith. Muhammad al-Bukhari has followed two principle criteria for selecting sound narratives. First, the lifetime of a narrator should overlap with the lifetime of the authority from whom he narrates.
2.Second, it should be verifiable that narrators have met with their source persons. They should also expressly state that they obtained the narrative from these authorities. This is a stricter criterion than that set by Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj.
3.Muhammad al-Bukhari accepted the narratives from only those who, according to his knowledge, not only believed in Islam but practiced its teachings. Thus, he has not accepted narratives from the Murjites.
The particular arrangement and ordering of chapters. This expresses the profound knowledge of the author and his understanding of the religion. This has made the book a more useful guide in understanding of the religious disciplines.

THE SAHIH MUSLIM

Sahih Muslim (Arabic: صحيح مسلم, ṣaḥīḥ Muslim, full title Al-Musnadu Al-Sahihu bi Naklil Adli) is one of the al-Kutub al-Sittah (six major ahadith) of the hadith in Sunni Islam. It is the second most authentic hadith collection after Sahih al-Bukhari, and is highly acclaimed by Sunni Muslims. The collector of the Sahih Muslim, Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj, was born into a Persian family in 204 AH (817/18 CE) in Nishapur (in modern-day Iran) and died in 261 AH (874/75 CE), also known as Imam Muslim. Sahih translates as authentic or correct
Amin Ahsan Islahi, the noted Islamic scholar, has summarized some unique features of Sahih Muslim:
Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj recorded only such narratives as were reported by two reliable successors from two Sahabah (Companions of Muhammad) which subsequently travelled through two independent unbroken isnāds consisting of sound narrators. Muhammad al-Bukhari has not followed such a strict criterion.
Scientific arrangement of themes and chapters. The author, for example, selects a proper place for the narrative and, next to it, puts all its versions. Muhammad al-Bukhari has not followed this method (he scatters different versions of a narrative and the related material in different chapters). Consequently, in the exercise of understanding ahādīth. Sahīh of Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj offers the best material to the students.
Muslim ibn al-Hajjaj informs us whose wordings among the narrators he has used. For example he says: haddathanā fulān wa fulān wallafz lifulān (A and B has narrated this hadīth to us and the wording used here is by A). Similarly he mentions whether, in a particular hadīth, the narrators have differed over the wordings even over a single letter of zero semantic significance. He also informs the readers if narrators have differed over a specific quality, surname, relation or any other fact about a narrator in the chain.

THEOCRACY
THE STATE IS NOW APPOINTED BY THE ONE GOD
A CENTRALISED AUTHORITARIAN POLITICAL RELIGIOUS TRADITION BEGINS
“A political tradition is one designed to control people using rules, regulations, and threats of punishment if the individual does not comply. Except in democratic systems, the individual has little part to play other than to follow the rules. To see, talk to, or identify with the deity is dangerous for all political systems (polytheistic as well as monotheistic) because such connections could possibly place the individual in a position of interpreting the deity’s will, undercutting the ruler’s authority and affecting public policy. The creators of the Islamic tradition fully realized this, and that is why Muhammed is considered the “seal of the prophets,” for to do otherwise encourages more prophecy, new lamps for old, and change that could alter the power structure. Again, for the individual to have direct contact with an all-powerful deity represents a possible challenge to the power structure and for this reason anyone making claims of contact with God is considered a heretic, a psychiatric case or a criminal.”
Excerpted from “Failed God: Fractured Myth in a Fragile World” By John A. Rush

“Within a few decades of Muhammads death in 632C.E., Islam had spread as far as Afghanistan and even to Tunisia in North Africa. By the early eighth century, the faith of the Quran had penetrated into Spain and was at the French border. As Professor Ninian Smart stated in his book Background to the Long Search: Looked at from a human point of view, the achievement of an Arabian prophet living in the sixth and seventh centuries after Christ is staggering. Humanly, it was from him that a new civilisation flowed. But of course for the Muslim the work was divine and the achievement that of Allah.?

MUSLIMS BURN BOOKS ,DESTROY ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE AND COMMIT GENOCIDE
OF ALL THE VERSIONS OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM THIS SEEMS THE BLOODIEST

Amr ibn al ‘Aas led an Arab army that sacked Alexandria in 642. Another enlightened monothiest,he also burnt the Great Library of Alexandria

“They will either contradict the Koran, in which case they are heresy, or they will agree with it, so they are superfluous.” The Arabs subsequently burned the books to heat bathwater for the soldiers
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Library_of_Alexandria#Amr_ibn_al_.27Aas_conquest_in_642

The Kaaba has been repaired and reconstructed many times since Muhammad’s day. The structure was severely damaged by fire on 3 Rabi I (Sunday, 31 October 683), during the first siege of Mecca in the war between the Umayyads and Abd-Allah ibn al-Zubayr, an early Muslim who ruled Mecca for many years between the death of ʿAli and the consolidation of Ummayad power. Ibn al-Zubayr rebuilt it to include the hatīm. He did so on the basis of a tradition (found in several hadith collections) that the hatīm was a remnant of the foundations of the Abrahamic Kaaba, and that Muhammad himself had wished to rebuild so as to include it.
The Kaaba was bombarded with stones in the second siege of Mecca in 692, in which the Umayyad army was led by al-Hajjaj ibn Yusuf. The fall of the city and the death of Ibn al-Zubayr allowed the Umayyads under ʿAbdu l-Malik ibn Marwan to finally reunite all the Islamic possessions and end the long civil war. In 693 A.D. ʿAbdu l-Malik had the remnants of al-Zubayr’s Kaaba razed, and rebuilt on the foundations set by the Quraysh. The Kaaba returned to the cube shape it had taken during Muhammad’s time.

During the Hajj of 930 A.D., the Qarmatians attacked Mecca, defiled the Zamzam Well with the bodies of pilgrims and stole the Black Stone, taking it to the oasis region of Eastern Arabia known as al-Aḥsāʾ, where it remained until the Abbasids ransomed it in 952 A.D. The basic shape and structure of the Kaaba have not changed since then.

HASSAN IBN SABBAH AND THE ISMAILIS
USING RELIGIOUS FANATICS FOR PERSONAL GAIN…AGAIN

JUST LIKE THE POPES IN CHRISTIANITY OR THE JEWISH SCRIBES THAT WROTE THE TORAH
THE LEADERS OF ISLAM DO NOT BELIEVE IN ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM EITHER.
IT IS JUST A TOOL OF MATERIAL POWER TO CONTROL HEARTS AND MINDS!
The Assassins’ cult is a good example of the diversity of unconventional means to reach and build a parallel political power of a certain magnitude. Hassan Sabbah was neither prince nor king. He didn’t rule over any country or nation in particular, he was just the leader of an islamic religious cult: the Ismailis. Even though the origin and the base of his power are not a nation-state, the Old Man of the Mountain and his Assassins will have a great influence in the Middle East from the XIth till the end of the XIIIth century.
It is first through its organization as a secret society that the Ismaili Cult becomes a possible instrument of Power conquest for Hassan ben Sabbah. In Persia around 1090, Hassan gives a purpose, a new form and impulse to the sect. Its new name (Assassins) is derived from the Arabic (smokers of hashish).
THESE RELIGIOUS FANATICS BELIEVE ABSURDITIES AND COMMIT ATROCITIES
..BUT IN FAIRNESS ,ONLY AGAINST THE OTHER NON-BELIEVING RULING ELITES,AND ONLY COSTING HIMSELF A DELUDED FANATICAL BELIEVER THAT IS EASILY REPLACEABLE…THERE’S A “SEEKER” BORN EVERY MINUTE
They are called fidawis or fidaïs (faithful) and the ideological indoctrination, the teachings given to beginners and other members of the cult are the nine degrees of initiation. The first two steps make a strict believer of the average member and an austere keeper of the faith. Up to the third degree, initiation tends to strengthen the devotion and obedience to Islam’s religious Law. A majority of Ismailis do not go further than the second degree.
Once he has reached the fourth degree, the convert or follower is not a Muslim anymore. Each upper degree make him stray a little more from the orthodoxy. The fifth degree takes him away from every revealed religion. After reaching the ninth degree, the initiate abandons all beliefs and submission to anything else than his own reason. He is left to himself and his own devices.
A double discourse (double talk ?) rules over all activities of the sect. While the majority of its members are Muslims and believers, the leaders themselves are unbelievers and non-Muslims.
The followers do not know that their leaders believe neither in Allah nor Mohammed. A double language serves a double purpose here (fulfills a double function): the faithful believe in God (fanatically), but their leaders (clear-minded and logical) do not.
The believers give their lives, and the unbelievers use them as basis of their power.An elite, a small group of unbelievers rules a crowd of thousands of believers, that are unaware of the fact that their leaders do not believe a word of what they are preaching. This is all the secret of this brilliant manipulation !
This leads us to talk about the strange power that Hassan exerts on his men. He binds to him religious fanatics because he knows how to excite and elate them with the taking of an intoxicating potion: the hashish. At the sound of his voice, they rush to assassinate the designated victims.The fidawis only attack heads of government and religious leaders.
The first victims are the great Vizir Nizam-al-Mulk and the sultan Melik-Shah. Other important victims are the vizir Fakhr-el-Mulk, the vizir Achmed Nizam-Eddin, the sultan Mohammed Tapar, the caliph of Egypt Abu Ali Mansur and the caliph of Bagdad, el-Mustarshid. The total contempt of death showed by the assassins establishes a rule of terror in Asia.
Hassan Sabbah is the first to use mystery as a weapon. It allows him to establish a parallel power of an unprecedented nature.The orders to kill, the death sentences and the assassins of the sect all originate from an inaccessible and mysterious place located in the middle of a high mountains’ range to strike at the heart of the empire. This behaviour looks mysterious, unpredictable and frightening. Hassan Sabbah had taken the castle of Alamut in 1091. Located in the mountains of Northern Persia (Rubdar mountains in the Ghilan), it will become later the capital of a small independant state.
The Assassins are particularly interested in castles and mountains’ strongholds that are located in remote and difficult to reach places. Throughout the years, they will capture more than thirty of these castles that will make up the true foundation of their power. The most famous being those of Alamut, Lamassar (or Lemsir), Masyaf in Syria and Kerduch.
The Seldjuk empire and the Fatimid empire of Egypt will collapse partly because of the attacks of the Ismailis. In the same way, the Abassid caliphate will fall, doubly victim of the blows dealt by the Assassins and the Mongol invasion of the 13th century.
Almost all the Assassin organization will be destroyed in 1256 by the Mongol army of Hulagu.
“Hassan Ibn Sabbah” by J.C.Rochefort

The world famous historian, Will Durant has written in his Story of Civilisation that “the Mohammedan conquest of India was probably the bloodiest story in history”. 
India before the advent of Islamic imperialism was not exactly a zone of peace. There were plenty of wars fought by Hindu princes. But in all their wars, the Hindus had observed some time-honoured conventions sanctioned by the Sastras. The Brahmins and the Bhikshus were never molested. The cows were never killed. The temples were never touched. The chastity of women was never violated. The non-combatants were never killed or captured. A human habitation was never attacked unless it was a fort. The civil population was never plundered. War booty was an unknown item in the calculations of conquerors. The martial classes who clashed, mostly in open spaces, had a code of honor. Sacrifice of honor for victory or material gain was deemed as worse than death.
Islamic imperialism came with a different code–the Sunnah of the Prophet. It required its warriors to fall upon the helpless civil population after a decisive victory had been won on the battlefield. It required them to sack and burn down villages and towns after the defenders had died fighting or had fled. The cows, the Brahmins, and the Bhikshus invited their special attention in mass murders of non-combatants. The temples and monasteries were their special targets in an orgy of pillage and arson. Those whom they did not kill, they captured and sold as slaves. The magnitude of the booty looted even from the bodies of the dead, was a measure of the success of a military mission. And they did all this as mujahids (holy warriors) and ghazls (kafir-killers) in the service of Allah and his Last Prophet.
Hindus found it very hard to understand the psychology of this new invader. For the first time in their history, Hindus were witnessing a scene which was described by Kanhadade Prabandha (1456 AD) in the following words:
“The conquering army burnt villages, devastated the land, plundered people’s wealth, took Brahmins and children and women of all classes captive, flogged with thongs of raw hide, carried a moving prison with it, and converted the prisoners into obsequious Turks.”
That was written in remembrance of Alauddin Khalji’s invasion of Gujarat in the year l298 AD. But the gruesome game had started three centuries earlier when Mahmud Ghaznavi had vowed to invade India every year in order to destroy idolatry, kill the kafirs, capture prisoners of war, and plunder vast wealth for which India was well-known.

Hindu Temples – What Happened to Them is a two-volume book by Sita Ram Goel, Arun Shourie, Harsh Narain, Jay Dubashi and Ram Swarup. The first volume was published in spring 1990.
The first volume includes a list of 2000 mosques that it is claimed were built on Hindu temples, which it is asserted is based primarily on the books of Muslim historians of the period or the inscriptions of the mosques. The second volume excerpts from medieval histories and chronicles and from inscriptions concerning the destruction of Hindu, Jain and Buddhist temples. The authors claim that the material presented in this book are only the tip of an iceberg.
The book contains chapters about the Ayodhya debate. The Appendix of the first volume contains a list of temple-destructions and atrocities that the authors claim took place in Bangladesh in 1989

The Magnitude of Muslim Atrocities
(Ghazanavi to Amir Timur)
MAHMUD AND MASOOD GHAZNAVI 1000AD 1037AD
In 1000 AD Mahmud defeated Raja Jaipal, a scion of the Hindu Shahiya dynasty of Kabul. This dynasty had been for long the doorkeeper of India in the Northwest.
“The blood of the infidels flowed so copiously [at Thanesar] that the stream was discolored, notwithstanding its purity, and people were unable to drink it. The Sultan returned with plunder which is impossible to count. Praise he to Allah for the honor he bestows on Islam and Muslims.”

“The Sultan returned in the rear of immense booty, and slaves were so plentiful that they became very cheap and men of respectability in their native land were degraded by becoming slaves of common shopkeepers. But this is the goodness of Allah, who bestows honor on his own religion and degrades infidelity.”
“The Muslims paid no regard to the booty till they had satiated themselves with the slaughter of the infidels and worshipers of sun and fire. The friends of Allah searched the bodies of the slain for three days in order to obtain booty…The booty amounted in gold and silver, rubies and pearls nearly to three hundred thousand dirhams, and the number of prisoners may be conceived from the fact that each was sold for two to ten dirhams. These were afterwards taken to Ghazni and merchants came from distant cities to purchase them, so that the countries of Mawaraun-Nahr, Iraq and Khurasan were filled with them, and the fair and the dark, the rich and the poor, were commingled in one common slavery.”

“The Brahmins and other high ranking men were slain, and their women and children were carried away captive, and all the treasure which was found was distributed among the army.”

MUHAMMAD GHORI AND HIS LEUTENANTS
Invasion of India by Islamic imperialism was renewed by Muhmmad Ghori in the last quarter of the 12th century. After Prithiviraj Chauhan had been defeated in 1192 AD, Ghori took Ajmer by assault.
“While the Sultan remained at Ajmer, he destroyed the pillars and foundations of the idol temples and built in their stead mosques and colleges and precepts of Islam, and the customs of the law were divulged and established.”

“in Benares which is the centre of the country of Hind, they destroyed one thousand temples and raised mosques on their foundations”.
According to Kamil-ut-Tawarikh of Ibn Asir, “The slaughter of Hindus (at Varanasi) was immense; none were spared except women and children, and the carnage of men went on until the earth was weary.”
The women and children were spared so that they could be enslaved and sold all over the Islamic world. It may be added that the Buddhist complex at Sarnath was sacked at this time, and the Bhikshus were slaughtered.

“three bastions as high as heaven with their heads, and their carcases became food for beasts of prey. The tract was freed from idols and idol worship and the foundations of infidelism were destroyed.”

In 1194 AD Aibak destroyed 27 Hindu temples at Delhi and built the Quwwat-ul-lslam mosque with their debris. According to Nizami, Aibak “adorned it with the stones and gold obtained from the temples which had been demolished by elephants”.

“fifty thousand infidels were dispatched to hell by the sword” and “more than twenty thousand slaves, and cattle beyond all calculation fell into the hands of the victors”.
The city was sacked, its temples demolished, and its palaces plundered. On his return to Ajmer, Aibak destroyed the Sanskrit College of Visaladeva, and laid the foundations of a mosque which came to be known as ‘Adhai Din ka Jhompada’.

“The temples were converted into mosques… Fifty thousand men came under the collar of slavery and the plain became black as pitch with Hindus.”

A free-lance adventurer, Muhammad Bakhtyar Khalji, was moving further east. In 1200 AD he sacked the undefended university town of Odantpuri in Bihar and massacred the Buddhist monks in the monasteries. In 1202 AD he took Nadiya by surprise. Badauni records in his Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh that “property and booty beyond computation fell into the hands of the Muslims and Muhammad Bakhtyar having destroyed the places of worship and idol temples of the infidels founded mosques and Khanqahs”.

In 1193, Qutb-ud-din Aybak, a Turkish commander, seized control of Delhi, leaving defenseless the northeastern territories that were the heart of Buddhist India. The Mahabodhi Temple was almost completely destroyed by the invading Muslim forces. One of Qutb-ud-Din’s generals, Ikhtiar Uddin Muhammad Bin Bakhtiyar Khilji, invaded Magadha and destroyed the great Buddhist shrines at Nalanda. The Buddhism of Magadha suffered a tremendous decline under Khilji.
In 1200 Muhammad Khilji, one of Qutb-ud-Din’s generals destroyed monasteries fortified by the Sena armies, such as the one at Vikramshila. Many monuments of ancient Indian civilization were destroyed by the invading armies, including Buddhist sanctuaries near Benares. Buddhist monks who escaped the massacre fled to Nepal, Tibet and South India.
According to the Isdhoo (Laamu Atoll), monks from monasteries of the southern atoll of Haddhunmathi were brought to Malé and beheaded

THE SLAVE (MAMLUK) SULTANS
Shamsuddin Iltutmish who succeeded Aibak at Delhi invaded Malwa in 1234 AD. He destroyed an ancient temple at Vidisha. Badauni reports in his ‘Muntakhab-ut-Tawarikh':
“Having destroyed the idol temple of Ujjain which had been built six hundred years previously, and was called Mahakal, he levelled it to its foundations, and threw down the image of Rai Vikramajit from whom the Hindus reckon their era, and brought certain images of cast molten brass and placed them on the ground in front of the doors of mosques of old Delhi, and ordered the people of trample them under foot.”
Muslim power in India suffered a serious setback after Iltutmish. Balkan had to battle against a revival of Hindu power. The Katehar Rajputs of what came to be known as Rohilkhand in later history, had so far refused to submit to Islamic imperialism. Balkan led an expedition across the Ganges in 1254 AD. According to Badauni,
“In two days after leaving Delhi, he arrived in the midst of the territory of Katihar and put to death every male, even those of eight years of age, and bound the women.”
But in spite of such wanton cruelty, Muslim power continued to decline till the Khaljis revived it after 1290 AD.

THE KHALJIS
Jalaluddin Khalji led an expedition to Ranthambhor in 1291 AD. On the way he destroyed Hindu temples at Chain.
Alauddin became Sultan in 1296 AD after murdering his uncle and father-in-law, Jalaluddin. In 1298 AD he equipped an expedition to Gujarat under his generals Ulugh Khan and Nusrat Khan. The invaders plundered the ports of Surat and Cambay. The temple of Somnath, which had been rebuilt by the Hindus, was plundered and the idol taken to Delhi for being trodden upon by the Muslims. The whole region was subjected to fire and sword, and Hindus were slaughtered en masse. Kampala Devi, the queen of Gujarat, was captured along with the royal treasury, brought to Delhi and forced into Alauddin’s harem.

THE TUGHLAQS
Firuz Shah Tughlaq led an expedition to Orissa in 1360 AD. He destroyed the temple of Jagannath at Puri, and desecrated many other Hindu shrines. According to ‘Sirat-i-Firoz Shahi’ which he himself wrote or dictated,
“Allah who is the only true God and has no other emanation, endowed the king of Islam with the strength to destroy this ancient shrine on the eastern sea-coast and to plunge it into the sea, and after its destruction he ordered the image of Jagannath to be perforated, and disgraced it by casting it down on the ground. They dug out other idols which were worshipped by the polytheists in the kingdom of Jajnagar and overthrew them as they did the image of Jagannath, for being laid in front of the mosques along the path of the Sunnis and the way of the ‘musallis’ (Muslim congregation for namaz) and stretched them in front of the portals of every mosque, so that the body and sides of the images might be trampled at the time of ascent and descent, entrance and exit, by the shoes on the feet of the Muslims.”
After the sack of the temples in Orissa, Firoz Shah Tughlaq attacked an island on the sea-coast where “nearly 100,000 men of Jajnagar had taken refuge with their women, children, kinsmen and relations”. The swordsmen of Islam turned “the island into a basin of blood by the massacre of the unbelievers”.
A worse fate overtook the Hindu women. Sirat-i-Firuz Shahs records: “Women with babies and pregnant ladies were haltered, manacled, fettered and enchained, and pressed as slaves into service in the house of every soldier.”
Still more horrible scenes were enacted by Firuz Shah Tughlaq at Nagarkot (Kangra) where he sacked the shrine of Jvalamukhi. Firishta records that the Sultan “broke the idols of Jvalamukhi, mixed their fragments with the flesh of cows and hung them in nose bags round the necks of Brahmins. He sent the principal idol as trophy to Medina.”

Mughal rule also contributed to the decline of Buddhism. They are reported to have destroyed many Hindu temples and Buddhist shrines alike or converted many sacred Hindu places into Muslim shrines and mosques. Mughal rulers like Aurangzeb destroyed Buddhist temples and monasteries and replaced them with Islamic mosques.

The pyramids of Giza were originally white.
When the pyramids were originally finished, they were plated in and outer layer of white “casing stones”.
The original casing stones were made of highly polished Tura limestone, meant to reflect the sun’s rays, and were accurate within 1/100th of an inch. All total, they were around five feet long, five feet high, and six feet deep and weighed around 15 metric tons each once the face angle was cut, being around 40 metric tons before that for the full block.
So what happened to these casing stones? Many of them were cut loose and carried off to be used on various other structures, such as when Bahri Sultan An-Nasir Nasir-ad-Din al-Hasan in 1356 used the polished stones from the Great Pyramid in building mosques in Cairo, some of which are still standing with these stones still intact.

Pantokrator Monastery
The Pantokrator Monastery in Istanbul, Turkey, was looted and converted into the Zeyrek Djami mosque after Constantinople was conquered by the Turks in 1453. The city itself was also looted, its citizens were either slaughtered or enslaved.

ISLAM BRINGS THE WONDERS OF SLAVERY TO PAGAN EUROPE
BYZANTINE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS WHERE SLAVE TRADERS AS WELL (ALL ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS)
IT WAS PAGAN EUROPEANS THAT FOUND SLAVERY REPULSIVE AND IN PAGAN EUROPE THERE WHERE NO SLAVE MARKETS OR SLAVE TRADERS….ONLY VICTIMS OF ISLAMIC AND CHRISTIAN AND JEWISH SLAVERY

Islam arrives in Europe

The Islamic World was also a main factor in Medieval European slavery. From the early 700s until the early Modern time period (rough the 18th or 19th centuries) Muslims consistently took European slaves. This slavery began during the Muslim Conquest of Visigothic Spain and Portugal in the 8th century. The Muslim powers of Iberia both raided for slaves and purchased slaves from European merchants, often the Jewish Radhanites, one of the few groups that could easily move between the Christian and Islamic worlds. As the Muslims failed to conquer Europe in the 8th century they took to pirate raids against the shores of Spain, southern Portugal and France, and Italy, that would last roughly from the 9th century until the 12th century, when the Italian city-states of Genoa, Venice, and Pisa, along with the Spanish kingdoms of Aragon and Castile, as well as the Sicilian Normans, began to dominate the Mediterranean. The Middle Ages from 1100 to 1500 saw a continuation of the European slave trade, though with a shift from the Western Mediterranean Islamic nations to the Eastern, as Venice and Genoa, in firm control of the Eastern Mediterranean from the 12th century and the Black Sea from the 13th century sold both Slavic and Baltic slaves, as well as Georgians, Turks, and other ethnic groups of the Black Sea and Caucasus, to the Muslim nations of the Middle East. The sale of European slaves by Europeans slowly ended as the Slavic and Baltic ethnic groups Christianized by the Late Middle Ages. European slaves in the Islamic World would, however, continue into the Modern time period as Muslim pirates, primarily Algerians, with the support of the Ottoman Empire, raided European coasts and shipping from the 16th to the 19th centuries, ending their attacks with the naval decline of the Ottoman Empire in the late 16th and 17th centuries, as well as the European conquest of North Africa throughout the 19th century.

AND THESE PEOPLE WONDER WHY THE CRUSADES HAPPENED?!?!?!
IF YOU ARE GOING TO SLAVE TRADE PEOPLE AND DESTROY THIER CULTURES FOR CENTURIES ,IN THE NAME OF GOD ,THERE WILL BE ONE HELL OF A PAYBACK ONE DAY
PLEASE ASK YOUR GOD TO SAVE YOU FROM YOUR VICTIMS VENGENCE
….AND STOP BLUBBING ABOUT THE CRUSADES…..PAYBACK IS A BITCH!!
BTW THE CRUSADERS WHERE FRANKS AND WORSHIPPED ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM JUST LIKE THE MUSLIMS AND THE JEWS WHO WHERE HAPPY TO SELL FRANKS AS SLAVES

THE ISLAMIC OTTOMAN EMPIRE
SLAVE TRADERS AND DESTROYERS OF ART ,ARCHITECTURE ,BOOKS AND HISTORY
By the 16th century, the Ottomans had become an existential threat to Europe. Ottoman conquests in Europe made significant gains with a decisive victory at Mohács

The coastal villages and towns of Spain, Italy and the Mediterranean islands were frequently attacked by Barbary pirates from North Africa; the Formentera was even temporarily left by its population and long stretches of the Spanish and Italian coasts were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants. The most famous corsair was the Turkish Barbarossa (“Redbeard”). According to Robert C. Davis, between 1 million and 1.25 million Europeans were captured by North African pirates and sold as slaves in North Africa and Ottoman Empire between the 16th and 19th centuries
The Barbary pirates, sometimes called Barbary corsairs or Ottoman corsairs, were pirates and privateers who operated from North Africa, based primarily in the ports of Tunis, Tripoli and Algiers. This area was known in Europe as the Barbary Coast, a term derived from the name of its Berber inhabitants. Their predation extended throughout the Mediterranean, south along West Africa’s Atlantic seaboard and even South America, and into the North Atlantic as far north as Iceland, but they primarily operated in the western Mediterranean. In addition to seizing ships, they engaged in Razzias, raids on European coastal towns and villages, mainly in Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal, but also in the British Isles, the Netherlands and as far away as Iceland. The main purpose of their attacks was to capture Christian slaves for the Islamic market in North Africa and the Middle East.
Estimating slave numbers
North African pirate ship  According to observers of the late 1500s and early 1600s, there were around 35,000 European Christian slaves held throughout this time on the Barbary Coast – many in Tripoli, Tunis, and various Moroccan towns, but most of all in Algiers.
The unfortunates were sometimes taken by the thousands, by slavers who raided the coasts of Valencia, Andalusia, Calabria and Sicily so often that eventually it was said that ‘there was no one left to capture any longer’.

Elephantine Island (Egypt) prior to 1822, there were temples to Thutmose III and Amenhotep III on the island. At that time they were destroyed by the Ottoman government. Both temples were relatively intact prior to the deliberate demolition. A rare calendar, known as the Elephantine Calendar of Things, dating to the reign of Thutmose III, was found in fragments on the island.

THE RISE OF WAHHABISM AND THE HOUSE OF SAUD
Tne dominant strand to the Saudi identity pertains directly to Muhammad ibn ?Abd al-Wahhab (the founder of Wahhabism), and the use to which his radical, exclusionist puritanism was put by Ibn Saud. (The latter was then no more than a minor leader — amongst many — of continually sparring and raiding Bedouin tribes in the baking and desperately poor deserts of the Nejd.)
Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab, founder of “Wahhabism,” an austere form of Islam, arrives in the central Arabian state of Najd in 1744 preaching a return to “pure” Islam. Abd al-Wahhab demanded conformity — a conformity that was to be demonstrated in physical and tangible ways. He argued that all Muslims must individually pledge their allegiance to a single Muslim leader (a Caliph, if there were one). Those who would not conform to this view should be killed, their wives and daughters violated, and their possessions confiscated, he wrote. The list of apostates meriting death included the Shiite, Sufis and other Muslim denominations, whom Abd al-Wahhab did not consider to be Muslim at all.
Abd al-Wahhab’s advocacy of these ultra radical views inevitably led to his expulsion from his own town — and in 1741, after some wanderings, he found refuge under the protection from the local emir, Muhammad ibn Saud, head of the Al Saud tribal family, and his tribe. What Ibn Saud perceived in Abd al-Wahhab’s novel teaching was the means to overturn Arab tradition and convention. It was a path to seizing power.They cut a deal. The Al Saud will endorse al-Wahhab’s austere form of Islam and in return, the Al Saud will get political legitimacy and regular tithes from al-Wahhab’s followers.
Ibn Saud’s clan, seizing on Abd al-Wahhab’s doctrine, now could do what they always did, which was raiding neighboring villages and robbing them of their possessions. Only now they were doing it not within the ambit of Arab tradition, but rather under the banner of jihad. Ibn Saud and Abd al-Wahhab also reintroduced the idea of martyrdom in the name of jihad, as it granted those martyred immediate entry into paradise.
A British official, Lieutenant Francis Warden, observing the situation at the time, wrote: “They pillaged the whole of it [Karbala], and plundered the Tomb of Hussein… slaying in the course of the day, with circumstances of peculiar cruelty, above five thousand of the inhabitants …”
Osman Ibn Bishr Najdi, the historian of the first Saudi state, wrote that Ibn Saud committed a massacre in Karbala in 1801. He proudly documented that massacre saying, “we took Karbala and slaughtered and took its people (as slaves), then praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, and we do not apologize for that and say: ‘And to the unbelievers: the same treatment.’”They aimed to instill fear.They massacred thousands of Shiites, including women and children. Many Shiite shrines were destroyed, including the shrine of Imam Hussein, the murdered grandson of Prophet Muhammad.
By the 19th century, the Al Saud has spread its influence across the Arabian Peninsula, stretching from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf and including the Two Holy Cities of Mecca and Medina.In 1803, Abdul Aziz then entered the Holy City of Mecca, which surrendered under the impact of terror and panic (the same fate was to befall Medina, too). Abd al-Wahhab’s followers demolished historical monuments and all the tombs and shrines in their midst. By the end, they had destroyed centuries of Islamic architecture near the Grand Mosque.
The religious-political alliance that al-Wahhab and Saud forge endures to this day in Saudi Arabia.With the advent of the oil bonanza — as the French scholar, Giles Kepel writes, Saudi goals were to “reach out and spread Wahhabism across the Muslim world … to “Wahhabise” Islam, thereby reducing the “multitude of voices within the religion” to a “single creed” — a movement which would transcend national divisions. Billions of dollars were — and continue to be — invested in this manifestation of soft power.

SAUDI ARABIA COVERING THIER OWN LIES?
The officially approved form of Islam in Saudi Arabia, Wahhabism, is hostile to any reverence given to historical or religious places of significance for fear that it may give rise to idolatry. As a consequence, under Saudi rule, it has been estimated that since 1985 about 95% of Mecca’s historic buildings, most over a thousand years old, have been demolished.
Historic sites of religious importance which have been destroyed by the Saudis include five of the renowned “Seven Mosques” initially built by Muhammad’s daughter and four of his “greatest Companions”: Masjid Abu Bakr, Masjid Salman al-Farsi, Masjid Umar ibn al-Khattab, Masjid Sayyida Fatima bint Rasulullah and Masjid Ali ibn Abu Talib.
It has been reported that there now are fewer than 20 structures remaining in Mecca that date back to the time of Muhammad. Other buildings that have been destroyed include the house of Khadijah, the wife of Muhammad, demolished to make way for public lavatories; the house of Abu Bakr, Muhammad’s companion, now the site of the local Hilton hotel; the house of Ali-Oraid, the grandson of Muhammad, and the Mosque of abu-Qubais, now the location of the King’s palace in Mecca; Muhammad’s birthplace, demolished to make way for a library; and the Abraj Al Bait Towers, built after demolishing the Ottoman-era Ajyad Fortress.
The ostensible reason for much of the destruction of historic buildings has been for the construction of hotels, apartments, parking lots and other infrastructure facilities for Hajj pilgrims. However, many have been destroyed without any such reason. For example, when the house of Ali-Oraid, the grandson of Muhammed was discovered and excavated, King Fahd himself ordered that it be bulldozed in case it should become a pilgrimage site

The Ladakh Buddhist Association has said: “There is a deliberate and organised design to convert Kargil’s Buddhists to Islam. In the last four years, about 50 girls and married women with children were taken and converted from village Wakha alone. If this continues unchecked, we fear that Buddhists will be wiped out from Kargil in the next two decades or so. Anyone objecting to such allurement and conversions is harassed.”

The Invention of Judaism

September 2, 2009

150px-Star_of_David_svg

Abrahamic monotheism is just original fascism

ALL Abrahamic monotheism (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) is an invention to control hearts and minds and can be traced back to a man and a motive.

Cyrus the Great and Aryan monotheistic Zoroastrainism for Judaism.

Originally “Judaism” was a fertility cult (Baal/El, Set/Amen) coverted to Zoraostrianism by Cyrus the Great.He invented a fanatical religious warrior to defend his zoroastrian monotheistic Persian empire.

Constantine the Great invented “christianity” it was Aryan monotheistic sun worship,(Sol Invictus/Mithras)

which got officially converted to messianic Judaism c.787AD. Constantine invented the religious institution.

Othman the Third Caliph for Islam. Originally it was Semitic polythestic moon worship which was converted to nestorian messianic Judaism.

ALL These conversions where done by FORCE!!

Abrahamic monothisms stories are myths taken from ancient Aryan beliefs.Beliefs that can be traced back 18,000 years.

But there are even older beliefs like snake worship beliefs that can be traced back to Africa over 70,000 years ago!!

Abrahamic monotheism is a New Age belief!

That age is the “age of Piceses” which began about 2,000 years ago and there is something very fishy about it!

For secular people this is just confirming your suspiscions

For spiritual people this is a wake up call…YOU ARE WORSHIPPING FALSE GODS

THE FOLLOWING POST DOES NOT DISPROVE GOD OR GODS

AND NEITHER IS IT A RANT AGAINST JEWS OR PEOPLE OF FAITH.

IT IS A SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH INTO THE ROOTS OF ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM ,AND COMPARES THE BIBLICAL CLAIMS WITH THE SCIENTIFIC REALITY USING ORIGINAL TEXTS ,DNA AND ARCHEOLOGY

HISTORY BEGINS

The span of RECORDED history altogether is roughly 5,000 – 5,500 years, with Sumerian cuneiform being the oldest form of writing discovered so far. This is the beginning of RECORDED history according to the definition used by most historians.It is of course NOT the beginning of history itself, which is written in and on stone and goes back 10’s of thousands of years.

For example see History of the Celtic People.Also “chosen of their tribal gods”,they where in the Holy Land and built temples 10,000 years before the hebrew culture existed.But I would not be so RUDE as to claim MY ancient tribal gods are more important or better than yours , and certainly NOT more important than the people currently living there today!!!)

The_Invention_of_the_Jewish_People-Cover

THEOLOGY WITHOUT FACTS = FANTASY

THE INVENTION OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE

The Invention of the Jewish People (Hebrew: מתי ואיך הומצא העם היהודי?‎, Matai ve’ech humtza ha’am hayehudi?, literally When and How was the Jewish People Invented?) is a study of the historiography of the Jewish people by Shlomo Sand, Professor of History at Tel Aviv University. It has generated a heated controversy

Sand began his work by looking for research studies about forcible exile of Jews from the area now bordered by modern Israel, and its surrounding regions. He was astonished that he could find no such literature, he says, given that the expulsion of Jews from the region is viewed as a constitutive event in Jewish history. The conclusion he came to from his subsequent investigation is that the expulsion simply didn’t happen, that no one exiled the Jewish people from the region, and that the Diaspora is essentially a modern invention. He accounts for the appearance of millions of Jews around the Mediterranean and elsewhere as something that came about primarily through the religious conversion of local people, saying that Judaism, contrary to popular opinion, was very much a “converting religion” in former times. He holds that mass conversions were first brought about by the Hasmoneans under the influence of Hellenism, and continued until Christianity rose to dominance in the fourth century CE

Sand argues that it is likely that the ancestry of most contemporary Jews stems mainly from outside the ancient Land of Israel and that a “nation-race” of Jews with a common origin never existed. Just as most contemporary Christians and Muslims are the progeny of converted people, not of the first Christians and Muslims, Judaism was originally, like its two cousins, a proselytising religion. Many of the present day world Jewish population are descendants of European, Russian and African groups.

According to Sand, the original Jews living in Israel, contrary to popular belief, were not exiled following the Bar Kokhba revolt. Sand argues that most of the Jews were not exiled by the Romans, and were permitted to remain in the country. Many Jews converted to Islam following the Arab conquest, and were assimilated among the conquerors. He concludes that the progenitors of the Palestinian Arabs were Jews

Sand’s explanation of the birth of the “myth” of a Jewish people as a group with a common, ethnic origin has been summarized as follows: “[a]t a certain stage in the 19th century intellectuals of Jewish origin in Germany, influenced by the folk character of German nationalism, took upon themselves the task of inventing a people “retrospectively,” out of a thirst to create a modern Jewish people. From historian Heinrich Graetz on, Jewish historians began to draw the history of Judaism as the history of a nation that had been a kingdom, became a wandering people and ultimately turned around and went back to its birthplace.

Sand believes that the idea of Jews being obliged to return from exile to the Promised Land was alien to Judaism before the birth of Zionism, and that the holy places were seen as places to long for, not to be lived in. On the contrary, for 2,000 years Jews stayed away from Jerusalem because their religion forbade them from returning until the Messiah came. According to Sand, the ancestry of Central and Eastern European Jews stems heavily from mediæval Turkic Khazars who were converted to Judaism, a theory which was popularized in a book written by Arthur Koestler in 1976

Sand explained during a newspaper interview his reasons for writing the book: “I wrote the book for a double purpose. First, as an Israeli, to democratise the state; to make it a real republic. Second, I wrote the book against Jewish essentialism.”

THE FOLLOWING IS THE EXPLAINATION OF HOW  AND WHY THESE MYTHS CAME ABOUT

USING ARCHEOLOGY ,DNA AND ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS..ALL THINGS YOU CAN USE IN A COURT OF LAW.

WE FIND THE TRUTH BEHIND THE EXODUS MYTH AND THE CREATION OF ISRAEL

THE FIRST RECORDED HEBREWS ARE WANDERING TRIBES IN SUMERIA c2150BC

The earliest mention of semitic Habiru(hebrew) is found in Sumerian documents from the reign of Shulgi of Ur (around 2150 BC) describe a class of “unclothed people, who travel in dead silence, who destroy everything, whose menfolk go where they will — they establish their tents and their camps — they spend their time in the countryside without observing the decrees of my king”.

In the earliest Sumerian sources, beginning about 2400 BC, the land of the Amorites (“the Mar.tu land”) is associated with the West, including Syria and Canaan, although their ultimate origin may have been Arabia. They appear as nomadic people in the Mesopotamian sources, The Amorite language was presumably a northwest Semitic dialect.Many of these names are similar to later Biblical Hebrew names.Amorites seem to have worshipped the moon-god Sin, and Amurru. Amurru is sometimes described as a ‘shepherd’, and as a son of the sky-god Anu. He is sometimes called bêlu šadi or bêl šadê, ‘lord of the mountain'; dúr-hur-sag-gá sikil-a-ke, ‘He who dwells on the pure mountain';’the god of my father’.

THEY CAUSE THE DOWNFALL OF THE THIRD DYNASTY OF UR c2004BC

Amorite tribes infiltrated Mesopotamia, precipitating the downfall of the Neo-Sumerian Third Dynasty of Ur,

783px-Ur_III_svg

Approximate extension of the empire of the Third Dynasty of Ur (2112-2004 BC according to the middle chronology), with the center/periphery organization of Shulgi’s reign (2093-2047 BC).

THE THIRD DYNASTY OF UR c2700BC

Mesopotamia / Sumeria

Gilgamesh was the son of Lugalbanda and the fifth king of Uruk ruling circa 2700 BC, according to the Sumerian king list. He became the central character in the Epic of Gilgamesh,Gilgamesh is credited with the building of the legendary walls of Uruk.

Sargon of Akkad Possibly of humble illegitimate Semitic origin,but lived a Sumarian cultural life. He rises to power and kingship “my father I knew not ,my father loved the hills”

Sargon of Akkad c. 2270–2215 BCE claimed to have destroyed these walls(of Uruk) to prove his military power.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilgamesh

The Third Dynasty of Ur refers simultaneously to a 21st to 20th century BC Sumerian ruling dynasty based in the city of Ur .

THESE SEMITIC PEOPLE ADOPT SUMERIA CULTURE AND MYTHS C2000-C1600BC

The rise of the Amorite kingdoms in Mesopotamia brought about deep and lasting repercussions in its political, social and economic structure.The division into kingdoms replaced the Sumerian city-state.The era of the Amorite kingdoms, ca. 2000–1600 BC, This era ended with the Hittite sack of Babylon (c. 1595 BC) The religious, ethical, and artistic directions in which Mesopotamia had been developing since earliest times, were not greatly impacted by the Amorites’ hegemony. They continued to worship the Sumerian gods, and the older Sumerian myths and epic tales were piously copied, translated, or adapted, generally with only minor alterations

THE BIBLICAL LEGENDS OF UR

THE TOWER OF BABEL

800px-Ziggurat_of_ur

The ziggurat of Ur was a temple of Nanna, the moon deity in Sumerian mythology, and has two stages constructed from brick: in the lower stage the bricks are joined together with bitumen, in the upper stage they are joined with mortar. The temple was built in 2100 B.C. during the reign of Ur-Nammu.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ur

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS

Khashkhamer_seal_moon_worship

The Code of Ur-Nammu is the oldest known tablet containing a law code surviving today. It was written in the Sumerian language ca. 2100-2050 BC.

“…After An and Enlil had turned over the Kingship of Ur to Nanna, at that time did Ur-Nammu, son born of Ninsun, for his beloved mother who bore him, in accordance with his principles of equity and truth… Then did Ur-Nammu the mighty warrior, king of Ur, king of Sumer and Akkad, by the might of Nanna, lord of the city, and in accordance with the true word of Utu, establish equity in the land; he banished malediction, violence and strife, and set the monthly Temple expenses at 90 gur of barley, 30 sheep, and 30 sila of butter. He fashioned the bronze sila-measure, standardized the one-mina weight, and standardized the stone weight of a shekel of silver in relation to one mina… The orphan was not delivered up to the rich man; the widow was not delivered up to the mighty man; the man of one shekel was not delivered up to the man of one mina.”

1. If a man commits a murder, that man must be killed.

2. If a man commits a robbery, he will be killed.

3. If a man commits a kidnapping, he is to be imprisoned and pay 15 shekels of silver.

4. If a slave marries a slave, and that slave is set free, he does not leave the household.

5. If a slave marries a native (i.e. free) person, he/she is to hand the firstborn son over to his owner.

6. If a man violates the right of another and deflowers the virgin wife of a young man, they shall kill that male.

7. If the wife of a man followed after another man and he slept with her, they shall slay that woman, but that male shall be set free.

8. If a man proceeded by force, and deflowered the virgin female slave of another man, that man must pay five shekels of silver. (5)

9. If a man divorces his first-time wife, he shall pay her one mina of silver. (6)

10. If it is a (former) widow whom he divorces, he shall pay her half a mina of silver. (7)

etc..

etc..

ENUMA ELISH THE CREATION MYTH

In both Enuma Elish and Genesis, creation is an act of divine speech—the Enuma Elish describes pre-creation as a time “when above, the heavens had not been named, and below the earth had not been called by name”, while in Genesis each act of divine creation is introduced with the formula: “And God said, let there be…”. The sequence of creation is identical: light, firmament, dry land, luminaries, and man. In both Enuma Elish and Genesis the primordial world is formless and empty (the tohu wa bohu of Genesis 1:2), the only existing thing the watery abyss which exists prior to creation (Tiamat in the Enuma Elish, tehom, the “deep”, a linguistic cognate of tiamat, in Genesis 1:2). In both, the firmament, conceived as a solid inverted bowl, is created in the midst of the primeval waters to separate the heavens from the earth (Genesis 1:6–7, Enuma Elish 4:137–40). Day and night precede the creation of the luminous bodies (Gen. 1:5, 8, 13, and 14ff.; Enuma Elish 1:38), whose function is to yield light and regulate time (Gen. 1:14; Enuma Elish 5:12–13). In Enuma Elish, the gods consult before creating man (Enuma Elish 6:4), while Genesis has: “Let us make man in our own image…” (Genesis 1:26) – and in both, the creation of man is followed by divine rest. “Thus, it appears that the so-called Priestly Source account echoes this earlier Mesopotamian story of creation.”

THE ORIGINAL FLOOD

According to Sumerian mythology, Enki also assisted humanity to survive the Deluge designed to kill them. In the Legend of Atrahasis, Enlil, the king of the gods, sets out to eliminate humanity, whose noise of them mating is offensive to his ears. He successively sends drought, famine, and plague to eliminate humanity, but Enki thwarts his half-brother’s plans by teaching Atrahasis irrigation, granaries and medicine. Humans again proliferate a fourth time. Enraged Enlil, convenes a Council of Deities and gets them to promise not to tell humankind that he plans their total annihilation. Enki, does not tell Atrahasis, but tells of Enlil’s plan to the walls of Atrahasis’ (a.k.a. Noah) reed hut, thus covertly rescuing the man Atrahasis, or Ziusudra by either instructing him to build some kind of a boat for his family, or by bringing him into the heavens in a magic boat. After the seven day Deluge, the flood hero, Utnapishtim, Atrahasis, or Ziusudra frees a swallow, a raven, and a dove in an effort to find if the flood waters have receded. On the boat landing, a sacrifice is organized to the gods.Enlil is angry his will has been thwarted yet again, and Enki is named as the culprit. As the god of what we would call ecology, Enki explains that Enlil is unfair to punish the guiltless Atrahasis for the sins of his fellows, and secures a promise that the gods will not eliminate humankind if they practice birth control and live within the means of the natural world. The threat is made, however, that if humans do not honor their side of the covenant the gods will be free to wreak havoc once again….the animals disembark and Zi-ud-sura prostrates himself before An (sky-god) and Enlil (chief of the gods), who give him eternal life and take him to dwell in Dilmun for “preserving the animals and the seed of mankind”. The remainder of the poem is lost…… This is apparently the oldest surviving Middle Eastern Deluge myths.

LEGENDS ENTER THE MYTHOS

SARGON OF AKKAD THE KING FOUND IN A BASKET FLOATING ON A RIVER

Akkadian the earliest attested Semitic language, it used the cuneiform writing system derived ultimately from ancient Sumerian, an unrelated language isolate.

Sargon “the king is legitimate” emperor famous for his conquest of the Sumerian city-states in the 24th and 23rd centuries BC.He became a prominent member of the royal court of Kish, ultimately overthrowing its king before embarking on the conquest of Mesopotamia.Possibly of humble Semitic origin he rises to power and kingship.

“My mother was a changeling (?), my father I knew not. The brothers of my father loved the hills. My city is Azurpiranu (the wilderness herb fields), which is situated on the banks of the Euphrates. My changeling mother conceived me, in secret she bore me. She set me in a basket of rushes, with bitumen she sealed my lid. She cast me into the river which rose not over me. The river bore me up and carried me to Akki, the drawer of water. Akki, the drawer of water, took me as his son and reared me. Akki the drawer of water, appointed me as his gardener. While I was gardener Ishtar granted me her love, and for four and (fifty?) … years I exercised kingship.”

THESE SEMITIC HABIRU CAUSED THE DOWNFALL OF UR

THEN ABRAHAM APPEARS IN CANNAN c1800BC

According to Genesis, Abraham was brought by God from Mesopotamia to the land of Canaan. There Abraham entered into a covenant: in exchange for sole recognition of YAHWEH as supreme universal deity and authority, Abraham will be blessed with innumerable progeny.According to Jewish tradition (based on the Anno Mundi era), Abraham lived AM 1948–2123 (1812 BCE to 1637 BCE). Christian traditional dates are about 2000 BCE to 1825 BCE

A PACT IS MADE BUT WHICH GOD WAS THIS?? IT WAS BAAL

258px-Baal_thunderbolt_Louvre_AO15775

Ba’al (pronounced: [ba?al]; Hebrew: ??? (ordinarily spelled Baal in English) is a Northwest Semitic title and honorific meaning “master” or “lord” that is used for various gods who were patrons of cities in the Levant,a god of the rain, thunder, fertility and agriculture, and the lord of Heaven. Since only priests were allowed to utter his divine name Hadad, Ba’al was used commonly.

In the Bronze Age (3600-1200 BC), Hadad (or Haddad or Adad) was especially likely to be called Baal

In the Canaanite pantheon as attested in Ugaritic sources, Hadad was the son of El, who had once been the primary god of the Canaanite pantheon. El and Baʿal are often associated with the bull in Ugaritic texts, as a symbol both of strength and fertility

Prior to the discovery of the Ugaritic texts it was supposed that ‘the Baals’ referred to distinct and local Cannanite deities. However, according to John Day, in Yahweh and the Gods and Goddesses of Canaan, these texts have revealed that these are simply local manifestations of one great, cosmic deity named Hadad

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baal

TO MAKE A PACT WITH A PATRON GOD WAS NORMAL AT THIS TIME,… ESPECIALLY FOR SUMERIANS

By the late 4th millennium BC, Sumer was divided into about a dozen independent city-states, whose limits were defined by canals and boundary stones. Each was centered on a temple dedicated to the particular patron god or goddess of the city

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumer#City_states

Habiru or Apiru or ˁpr.w (Egyptian) was the name given by various Sumerian, Egyptian, Akkadian, Hittite, Mitanni, and Ugaritic sources (dated, roughly, between 1800 BC and 1100 BC) to a group of people living as nomadic invaders in areas of the Fertile Crescent from Northeastern Mesopotamia and Iran to the borders of Egypt in Canaan. Depending on the source and epoch, these Habiru are variously described as nomadic or semi-nomadic, rebels, outlaws, raiders, mercenaries, and bowmen, servants, slaves, migrant laborers, etc.

As more texts were uncovered throughout the Near East, it became clear that the Habiru were mentioned in contexts ranging from unemployed agricultural workers and vagrants, to mounted mercenary bowmen. The context differed depending upon where the references were found.

Though found throughout most of the Fertile Crescent, the arc of civilization “extending from the Tigris-Euphrates river basins over to the Mediterranean littoral and down through the Nile Valley during the Second Millennium, the principal area of historical interest is in their engagement with Egypt.”

Carol Redmount who wrote ‘Bitter Lives: Israel in and out of Egypt’ in The Oxford History of the Biblical World concluded that the term “Habiru” had no common ethnic affiliations, that they spoke no common language, and that they normally led a marginal and sometimes lawless existence on the fringes of settled society. She defines the various Apiru/Habiru as “a loosely defined, inferior social class composed of shifting and shifty population elements without secure ties to settled communities” who are referred to “as outlaws, mercenaries, and slaves” in ancient texts. In that vein, some modern scholars consider the Habiru to be more of a social designation than an ethnic or a tribal one.

THE NEXT ARE THE EGYPTIANS.

THE HYKSOS

THESE BAAL WORSHIPPING CANNANITES INVADE THE NORTH OF EGYPT c1650BC

THIS CAUSES THE SECOND PERIOD OF DISUNITY IN EGYPT.

THESE HYKSOS/HABIRU ALSO WORSHIP “SET” DUE TO HIS ASSOCIATION WITH BAAL

Important Canaanite populations first appeared in Egypt towards the end of the 12th Dynasty c. 1800 BC, and either around that time or c. 1720 BC, formed an independent realm in the eastern Nile Delta

Around 1720-1710 BCE, Egypt began to be invaded by a people “of obscure race”, the Hyksos. These Hyksos melted easily into Egyptian society at first; eventually they became very powerful, and finally, in a coup, they came to rule the whole of Northern Egypt, imposing one of their people as the legitimate Pharaoh.

Although most Hyksos names seem Semitic, the Hyksos also included Hurrians, who, while speaking an isolated language, were under the rule and influence of Indo-Europeans, and their chief deity, their native storm god, became associated with the Egyptian storm and desert god, Seth

The Turin Canon king list affirms there were six Hyksos rulers, but only four of them are known from archaeological or textual records: Sakir-Har, Khyan, Apophis and Khamudi. Khyan and Apophis are by far the best attested kings of this dynasty whereas Sakir-Har is attested by only a single door jamb from Avaris which bears his royal titulary. Khamudi is named as the last Hyksos king in a fragment from the Turin Canon.

During the Hyksos rule of Upper Egypt, they established their capital in the city of Avaris in the Delta, and the legitimate line of Pharaohs had to move to Thebes (now Luxor) in the South, ruling only over Lower Egypt.

A second period of disunity heralded the arrival of the first foreign ruling dynasty in Egypt, that of the Semitic Hyksos. The Hyksos invaders took over much of Lower Egypt around 1650 BC and founded a new capital at Avaris.The Hyksos kingdom was centered in the eastern Nile Delta and Middle Egypt and was limited in size, never extending south into Upper Egypt, which was under control by Theban-based rulers.Hyksos used Egyptian titles associated with traditional Egyptian kingship, and took Egyptian god Seth to represent their own titulary deity.BUT the native Egyptians continued to view the Hyksos as non-Egyptian “invaders.” They were driven out by an Upper Egyptian force led by Ahmose I, who founded the Eighteenth Dynasty and relocated the capital from Memphis to Thebes.His reign is usually dated to about 1550–1525 BC.The Hyksos at their capital Avaris worshiped and venerated Seth in the Second Intermediate Period (1650-1550 BCE)due to his association with the thunder god Baal.

A group of people wearing coats of many colors using red, purple and blue dye and labled Hyksos entering egypt c 1900 BC from the tomb of a 12th dynasty king Khnumhotep II at beni hasan.

The hyksos people are shown wearing the cloaks of many colors associated with the mercenary Mitanni bowmen and cavalry (ha ibrw) of Northern Canaan, Aram, Kadesh, Sidon and Tyre. Modern scholarship usually assumes that the Hyksos were likely Semites who came from the Levant (ie. Syria or Canaan). Apophis is refered to as a “Chieftain of Retjenu (i.e. Canaan)” in a stela which implies a Canaanite background for this Hyksos king: this is the strongest evidence for a Canaanite background for the Hyksos. Khyan’s name “has generally been interpreted as Amorite “Hayanu”

Seuserenre Khyan, Khian or Khayan was reportedly the fourth king of the Hyksos Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled approximately c.1610-1580 BC

a stela set up in Avaris contains the nomen and prenomen of Khayan and a now lost dedication (presumably to Seth, Lord of Avaris).The Hyksos King Apophis is recorded as worshiping Set in a monolatric way: “[He] chose for his Lord the god Seth. He didn’t worship any other deity in the whole land except Seth.”

THE HYKSOS WORSHIPPED SET!!

AND BROUGHT DISASTER TO EGYPT.

THE EXODUS TO CANAAN .

THERE WHERE 2 EXODUS EVENTS

THE MILITARY EXPULSION OF THE HYKSOS WHICH LED TO SEMITIC ENSLAVEMENT

AND THE LATER EXPULSION OF THE GOD SET INTO CANAAN

WHICH LED TOO THE FLEEING/MIGRATING OF THE SET WORSHIPPING HYKSOS SLAVES AND OTHER SET WORSHIPPERS INTO CANAAN

BUT NO BIBLICAL EXODUS

BUT THIS EXODUS DID LEAD TO THE CREATION OF A SMALL POLYTHESTIC BAAL WORSHIPPING KINGDOM OF ISRAEL

EXODUS I WAS THE HYKSOS EXPULSION BY AHMOSE I IN c1550BC.

Thus causing the plagues etc and weakening the Hyksos hold on north Egypt.Towards the end of the Seventeenth dynasty, Ahmose I, the founder of the Eighteenth dynasty, captured Avaris just before the Hyksos were finally expelled from Egypt, after a water-borne siege. The Hyksos capital was razed to the ground in the aftermath of the Egyptian triumph

AHMOSE I TOOK HYKSOS SLAVES AND CHASED THE HYKSOS ARMY TO GAZA AND DESTROYED IT

“Then Avaris was despoiled. Then I carried off spoil from there: one man, three women, a total of four persons. Then his majesty gave them to me to be slaves.”

After the fall of Avaris, the fleeing Hyksos were pursued by the Egyptian army across northern Sinai and into southern Canaan The first pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, Ahmose I, finally expelled the Hyksos from their last holdout at Sharuhen in Gaza by the 16th year of his reign.Modern historians identify the expulsion of the Hyksos with the Exodus. Significant in this identification is the fact that some Hyksos pharaohs had names familiar from Israelite traditions, such as Jacobaam of the 16th dynasty.

Josephus identifies the Israelite Exodus with the first exodus mentioned by Manetho, when some 480,000 Hyksos “shepherd kings” (also referred to as just as ‘shepherds’, as ‘kings’ and as ‘captive shepherds’ in his discussion of Manetho) left Egypt for Jerusalem.The mention of “Hyksos” identifies this first exodus with the Hyksos period (16th century BC).

PONITS OF INTEREST IN THIS DOCUEMTRY

This documentry follows the biblical description and puts it against the archeology.

The weakness in the documentry is the fact he is trying to follow the bible version of only 1 exodus,when in fact there where 2. The expulsion exodus and the later fleeing of the slaves.

Please note the amount of official obstruction involed in the making of this documentry.

ahmose1 stela

ahmose1 stela

Also please note that it is the Egyptian Stela of pharoah Ahmose I, that refers to god in a monotheistic term and NOT the polytheistic Set worshipping Hyksos pharoahs of Avairs.

In this the documentry goes for the Santorini volcano happening after the fall of the Hyksos and thier enslavement. It makes a good case, but he has to juggle dates to make the exodus fit. This is because there where 2 exoduses not 1.

The Hyksos are definately polytheistsic.

In the mines of Avairs we find The habiru slaves calls on “EL” to save them. El is a polytheistic god and father of Baal/Set.Avairs was dedicated to Set during the Hyksos reign, who had made Avairs thier capital.

ʾĒl (written aleph-lamed, i.e. אל, 𐤀𐤋, 𐎛𐎍 etc.) is the Northwest Semitic word for “deity”, cognate to Akkadian ilum.

In the Canaanite religion, or Levantine religion as a whole, Eli or Il was the supreme god, the father of humankind and all creatures and the husband of the goddess Asherah as recorded in the clay tablets of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra, Syria).

The word El was found at the top of a list of gods as the Ancient of gods or the Father of all gods, in the ruins of the royal archive of the Ebla civilization, in the archaeological site of Tell Mardikh in Syria dated to 2300 BC. The bull was symbolic to El and his son Ba’al Hadad(the Egyptian god Set), and they both wore bull horns on their headdress(They both where horned fertility gods)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/El_(deity)

THE PHAROAH AHMOSES CHASES THE PRINCE OF THE DESERT OVER THE REED SEA ,YAM SUF

The Red/Reed Sea(Yam Suf) ,in the Egyptian pharoahs stela version it does not mention a mass destruction of the Egyptian army nor did the Pharoah Ahmose die at Yam Suf.It seems he died many years later. The pharoah Ahmose went on for 18 years chasing down the hyksos and finally finished them off in Gaza.

The Ahmose pharoah stela at Yum Suf refers to a “Prince of the desert” as the leader(Set is the Lord of the desert, and a Hyksos pharoah maybe considered a Prince) ,and his people as “the evil ones”(Set is concidered an evil god by Egyptian Ra/Horus sun worshippers).

NOTE THE TABERNACLE WITH ITS HORNS THAT NEED BLOODED

Note the Tebernacle with its smaller house of god and its scarificial alter with HORNS that needs blooded.This is the exact same layout and location as a temple of Set. A temple of Set was a smaller sacred holy shrine within an enclosure that houses the holy of holies ,located in the desert at/or/and the foot of a mountain.

THIS IS DEFINATELY WHERE SOME EXODUS MYTHS COME FROM

BUT IT MIGHT BE SEEN MORE AS A MASSACRE AND A MILITARY CAMPAIGN THAN AN EXODUS

WHAT WE DO KNOW IS THAT HYKSOS WHERE TAKEN AS SLAVES AND WOULD OF THEN BEEN PUT TO WORK BUILDING AHMOSES NEW EGYPT

HERE WE HAVE THE ENSLAVEMENT OF SEMITIC PEOPLE IN EGYPT

WE ALSO SEE THIER GOD ,SET (BAAL) DEMONISED IN EGYPTIAN SOCIETY AT THIS TIME

AND A RELIGIOUS STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL OF EGYPT TAKES PLACE

Ahmose I

Ahmose I

AHMOSE I c1539–1514BC

Ahmose resumed large construction projects like those before the second intermediate period. In the south of the country he began constructing temples mostly built of brick, one of them in the Nubian town of Buhen. In Upper Egypt he made additions to the existing temple of Amun at Karnak and to the temple of Montu at Armant.[36] According to an inscription at Tura,[37] he used white limestone to build a temple to Ptah and the southern harem of Amun, but did not finish either project

two temples constructed by Ahmose’s queen, Ahmose-Nefertary. One of these structures also bears bricks stamped with the name of Chief Treasurer Neferperet, the official responsible for re-opening the stone quarries at el-Ma’asara (Tura) in Ahmose’s year 22. A third, larger temple (Temple C) is similar to the pyramid temple in form and scale, but its stamped bricks and details of decoration reinforce that it was a cult place for Ahmose-Nefertary

THE HYKSOS MIS-RULE HAS LASTING EFFECTS ON EGYPTIAN CULTURE

THE AFTER EFFECTS OF THE HYKSOS

THE TITLE PHAROAH IS ONLY MADE AFTER THE HYKSOS EXPULSION

Pharaoh, meaning “Great House”, originally referred to the king’s palace, but during the reign of Thutmose III (ca. 1479–1425 BCE) in the New Kingdom, after the foreign rule of the Hyksos during the Second Intermediate Period, became a form of address for the person who was king and Son of god Ra. “The Egyptian sun god Ra, considered the father of all pharaohs, was said to have created himself from a pyramid-shaped mound of earth before creating all other gods.” (Donald B. Redford, Ph.D., Penn State)

AMEN-RA IS CREATED. AMEN BECOMES A SUN GOD

After the rebellion of Thebes against the Hyksos and with the rule of Ahmose I, Amun acquired national importance, expressed in his fusion with the Sun god, Ra, as Amun-Ra.

Amun-Ra retained chief importance in the Egyptian pantheon throughout the New Kingdom (with the exception of the “Atenist heresy” under Akhenaten). Amun-Ra in this period (16th to 11th centuries BC) held the position of transcendental, self-created creator deity “par excellence”, he was the champion of the poor or troubled and central to personal piety. His position as King of Gods developed to the point of virtual monotheism where other gods became manifestations of him. With Osiris, Amun-Ra is the most widely recorded of the Egyptian gods. As the chief deity of the Egyptian Empire, Amun-Ra also came to be worshipped outside of Egypt, in Ancient Libya and Nubia, and as Zeus Ammon came to be identified with Zeus in Ancient Greece.

WITH RA NOW THE SOCIAL POLITICAL RELIGIOUS POWER IN EGYPT ,THE GOD SET GETS A NEW JOB DESCRIPTION

HERO OF RA

With RA taking political power, Amen joins with RA to become ,Amen-RA ,and with Horus as Ra’s heir on Earth, Set, previously the chief god, for Lower Egypt (during the Hyksos rule), required an appropriate role as well, and so was identified as Ra’s main hero, who fought Apep each night, during Ra’s journey (as sun god) across the underworld

Set Battles Apep the snake ,defending Ra’s solar boat

THE ROOTS OF THE 2ND EXODUS BEGIN IN c.1250

AND CULMINATES IN THE EXPULSION OF THE GOD SET

THE BIBLICAL EXODUS IS BASED ON THE POLITICAL POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN SET AND RA FOR PHAROANIC AND RELIGIOUS CONTROL OF EGYPT

IT WAS PROBABLY STARTED BY RAMOSES II FORCING THE ENSLAVED HYKSOS/HEBREWS TO BUILD A CITY OF RA ,PI-RAMESSES,

ON THE RUINS OF THE HYKSOS/HEBREW CITY OF SET, AVAIRS!!

THE CONSTRUCTION OF PI-RAMSES WAS ON THE RUINS OF AVAIRS.

THE ABANDONED HYKSOS CAPITAL DEDICATED TO SET

THIS IS WHY RAMOSES GETS SUCH A BAD PRESS IN THE BIBLE

Avaris was a major administrative capital and royal summer residence in the 12th and 13th dynasties of Egypt, and subsequently the main capital of the Hyksos dynasties of Egypt.The Hyksos at their capital Avaris worshiped and venerated Seth. The town itself appears to have been mainly abandoned after the Hyksos expulsion but seems to have been reoccupied by the Nineteenth dynasty, at which time Avaris was incorporated into the new settlement of Pi-Ramesses as that city’s southern quarters THEN Ramesses II transferred his government and official residence north to Pi-Ramesses from Thebes

HE ALSO MAY HAVE REFUSED TO LET THE HABIRU WORSHIP SET ,AS THE HYKSOS RULE HAD DEMONISED SET IN THE EYES OF EGYPTIANS

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE/TORAH PHAROAH FORBIDS THE HYKSOS/HA IBRW TO WORSHIP SET

Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and told him that the Lord God of Israel(SETH) wanted Pharaoh to permit the Israelites(Hyksos/habiru) to celebrate a feast in the wilderness(desert)

BUT RAMOSES II STILL GOT HIS ROYAL CITY OF RA BUILT, SO NO BIG PROBLEM FOR RAMOSES II

WHO WOULD PROBABLY BE GLAD TO SEE THE SET WORSHIPPING HABIRU GO!

….THUS NO PHARONIC DESERT CHACE AND NO EGYPTIAN RECORD OF ANY MASS EXODUS

IN FACT THERE IS NO EGYPTIAN EVIDENCE OF ANY KIND OF EXODUS OR MIGRATION OUT OF EGYPT DURING THIS PERIOD

SO THE REAL SECOND EXODUS MUST OF HAPPENED LATER ,AFTER RAMOSES II

Although the Book of Genesis and Book of Exodus describe a period of Hebrew servitude in ancient Egypt, more than a century of archaeological research has discovered nothing which could support its narrative elements— the four centuries sojourn in Egypt, the escape of well over a million Israelites from the Delta, or the three months journey through the wilderness to Sinai.

The Egyptian records themselves have no mention of anything recorded in Exodus, the wilderness of the southern Sinai peninsula shows no traces of a mass-migration such as Exodus describes, and virtually all the place-names mentioned, including Goshen (the area within Egypt where the Israelites supposedly lived), the store-cities of Pithom and Rameses, the site of the crossing of the Red Sea (or, more commonly among modern Biblical scholars, the Sea of Reeds), and even Mt Sinai itself, have resisted identification

James Weinstein, “Exodus and the Archaeological Reality”, in Exodus: The Egyptian Evidence, ed. Ernest S. Frerichs and Leonard H. Lesko (Eisenbrauns, 1997), p.87

John Van Seters, “The Geography of the Exodus”, in The Land I Will Show You: Essays on the History and Archaeology of the Ancient Near East in Honour of J. Maxwell Miller, ed. J.

Pithom is one of the cities which, according to Exodus 1:11, was built for the Pharaoh of the oppression by the forced labor of the Israelites. The other city was Pi-Ramses; and the Septuagint adds a third, “On, which is Heliopolis.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pithom

THE BIBLICAL STORIES OF PI-RAMOSES AND PITHOM AND ON ARE FALSE

OR DISTRORTED MEMORIES RE-WRITTEN IN LATER YEARS

AND GIVEN A MONOTHEISTIC GOD REPLACING SET/AMEN POLYTHEISM

BUT THE ENSLAVED HYKSOS WHERE DEFINATELY PUT TO WORK IN THE QUARRIES

The biblical Book of Exodus mentions “Ramesses” as one of the cities on whose construction the Israelites were forced to labour (Exodus 1:11). Understandably, this Ramesses was identified by an early generation of biblical archaeologists with the Pi-Ramesses of Ramesses II.

Feet of Ramses II statue at Pi-Ramesses

Feet of Ramses II statue at Pi-Ramesses

The existence of the city as Egypt’s capital as late as the 10th century makes problematic the reference to Ramesses in the Exodus story as a memory of the era of Ramesses II; and indeed, the shortened form “Ramesses”, in place of the original Pi-Ramesses, is first found in 1st millennium texts.

The Bible describes Ramesses as a “store-city”(Not a Royal Capital). The exact meaning of the Hebrew phrase is not certain, but some have suggested that it refers to supply depots on or near the frontier. This would be an appropriate description for Pithom (Tel al-Maskhuta) in the 6th century BCE, but not for the royal capital in the time of Ramesses, when the nearest frontier was far off in the north of Syria. Only after the original royal function of Pi-Ramesses had been forgotten could the ruins have been re-interpreted as a fortress on Egypt’s frontier. Long after the time of any Ramesses!

John Van Seters, “The Geography of the Exodus”, in John Andrew Dearman, Matt Patrick Graham, (eds), “The land that I will show you: essays on the history and archaeology of the Ancient Near East in honour of J. Maxwell Miller” (Sheffield Academic Press, 2001), pp.264–6

Pithom, Egyptian Per-Atum or Per Tum (“Estate of Atum”), probably modern Tall al-Maskhūṭah, ancient Egyptian city located near Ismailia in Al-Ismāʿīliyyah muḥāfaẓah (governorate) and mentioned in the Bible (Exodus 1:11) as one of the treasure houses built for the pharaoh by the Hebrews prior to the Exodus. Although Pithom has been identified as Tall al-Maskhūṭah, excavations at the site have revealed that, aside from an unfortified outpost of the Hyksos period (see ancient Egypt: The Second Intermediate period), the earliest layers do not predate the 7th century bce

AS FOR HELIOPOLIS ,IT HAD BEEN STANDING LONG BEFORE THE HYKSOS HAD EVEN ENTERED EGYPT

Obelisk of Sesostris I, 12th Dynasty, Middle Kingdom in Heliopolis

Obelisk of Sesostris I, 12th Dynasty, Middle Kingdom in Heliopolis

Heliopolis (/hiliˈɒpɵlʌs/; Ancient Greek: Ἡλιούπολις, “City of the Sun” or “City of Helios”; Egyptian: ỉwnw; Arabic: عين شمس, Ain Shams, “Eye of the Sun”) was one of the oldest cities of ancient Egypt, the capital of the 13th Lower Egyptian nome that was located five miles (8 km) east of the Nile to the north of the apex of the Nile Delta. Heliopolis has been occupied since the Predynastic Period,[1] with extensive building campaigns during the Old and Middle Kingdoms.

The major cult centre of Ra was Heliopolis (called Iunu, “Place of Pillars”, in Egyptian)

At the time of the New Kingdom, the worship of Ra had became more complicated and grander. The walls of tombs were dedicated to extremely detailed texts that depicted Ra’s journey through the underworld. Ra was said to carry the prayers and blessings of the living with the souls of the dead on the sun boat.

Many acts of worship included hymns, prayers, and spells to help Ra and the sun boat overcome Apep.

Today it is mostly destroyed; its temples and other buildings were used for the construction of medieval Cairo.

The site of Heliopolis has now been brought for the most part under cultivation and suburbanization, but some ancient city walls of crude brick can be seen in the fields, a few granite blocks bearing the name of Ramesses II remain, and the position of the great Temple of Re-Atum is marked by the Al-Masalla obelisk.

THE THEOLOGICAL ROOT OF THE EXODUS AND MODERN ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM

IS THE SOCIO/RELIGIOUS POWER STRUGGLE IN EGYPT

BETWEEN SET VS OSIRIS/HORUS AND AMEN VS RA

MALE FERTILITY CULT VS SUN WORSHIPPING CULT

RAMOSES VERSUS SETMOSES , MY GOD VERSES YOUR GOD

AND THE ROOT OF MOST BIBLICAL STORIES

MOSES WAS PROBABLY A HIGH PRIEST OF SET AND POSSIBLY A HYKSOS PRINCE OF EGYPT BY BIRTH.

WE KNOW FROM EGYPTIAN RECORDS HE HELD AN IMPORTANT RANK IN NORTHERN EGYPT

AND HE DEFINATELY HAD STRONG CONNECTIONS WITH THE AMEN/SET MALE FERTILITY FACTION IN EGYPT AT THIS TIME.

Mose’s REAL name was probably “Sethmoses” or “Setmoses” with a ban on speaking the god’s name,he would be called MOSES ,e.g. Thut-MOSE, “Chosen of Thoth,” Ra-MOSE, “Chosen of Ra” if they could not mention thier god’s name.Thus RA-MOSES vs SET-MOSES ,my god vs your god. In the Nineteenth dynasty, Horus(Pharoah) had had many battles with Set, not only to avenge his father(Osiris), but to choose the rightful ruler of Egypt .

These battles give us themes like, the resurrection, a challenge of authority in heaven, the trinity of Osiris Isis Horus, the immaculet conception, the holy ghost(Ra) the father (Osiris) and the son on Earth(Horus),Cain and Abel …in later hebrew rewritting with Seth becoming the Horus.

For example ,Cain and Abel(and with Eve thier child Seth) is just the re-writing of Osiris and Set and (and with Isis thier child Horus)…..in later hebrew rewritting with Seth becoming the Horus.

According to Genesis 4:25, Seth(Horus) was born after the slaying of Abel by Cain,(Osiris by Set) and Eve(Isis) believed God(Amen/Ra) had appointed him as “replacement” for Abel(Osiris) “because Cain(Set) killed him.” etc.. etc..

What we are seeing here is Canaan (Cain) and Baal (Abel) and the rightful ruler Seth

In the Egyptian original version it is Set (the founder god) and Osiris (his body represents Egypt) and the rightful ruler Horus(the Pharoah)

MODERN JUDAISM IS BASED ON MONOTHEISTIC SET WORSHIP(MALE FERTILITY CULT)

SET(SETH) WORSHIP IN EGYPT AND ITS INFLUENCE ON THE HYKSOS/HA IBRW

JUDAISM AND SET WORSHIP

JUDAISM CONTAINS THE FAMILIAR PAGAN ELEMENTS OF AMEN(-RA) ,SET WORSHIP

The conception of God in Judaism is strictly monotheistic. God is an absolute one indivisible incomparable being who is the ultimate cause of all existence.Jewish tradition teaches that the true aspect of God is incomprehensible and unknowable,(AMEN) and that it is only God’s revealed aspect(RA) that brought the universe into existence, and interacts with mankind and the world(SET). In Judaism, the one God of Israel is the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, who is the guide of the world, delivered Israel from slavery in Egypt, and gave the Ten Commandments at Mount Sinai as described in the Torah.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_in_Judaism

AMEN,THE ESSENTIAL BUT HIDDEN ASPECT OF GOD

For the SET worshipping Hyksos Pharoahs of Egypt,who would later become the Israelities , AMEN , was the Head god/Supreme Being , does this ring any bells?

The word amen is a declaration of affirmation found in the Hebrew Bible and New Testament. Its use in Judaism dates back to its earliest texts.

Amen, meaning “so be it”, is of Hebrew origin.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen

Amun(AMEN), reconstructed Egyptian Yamanu (also spelled Amon, Amoun, Amen, and rarely Imen or Yamun, Greek ?µµ?? Ammon, and ?µµ?? Hammon)

Whilst remaining hypostatic, Amun represented the essential and hidden, whilst in Ra he represented revealed divinity. As the creator deity “par excellence”,he was the champion of the poor and central to personal piety. Amun was self created, without mother and father, and during the New Kingdom he became the greatest expression of transcendental deity in Egyptian theology . His position as King of Gods developed to the point of virtual monotheism where other gods became manifestations of him. With Osiris, Amun-Ra is the most widely recorded of the Egyptian gods

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amun

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amen_Ra

THE SUPREME BEING ….THE NETER NETERU

It is important to understand that the High Gods and Goddesses as well as the Egyptian Trinities originated from the same transcendental Supreme Being which was without name or form, but was referred to as Neter Neteru (Neter of Neters – Supreme Being above all gods and goddesses) and Neb-er-tcher.

http://www.sacredtempleofra.net/anunian-theology.

THE GOD SET (SETH)

SET was the god of the desert, evil, and chaos. Set was viewed as immensely powerful. Set carried the epithet, “His Majesty”, shared only with Ra.

The exact translation of Set is unknown for certain, but is usually considered to be either (one who) dazzles or pillar of stability, one connected to the desert, and the other more to the institution of monarchy.The Hyksos at their capital Avaris worshiped and venerated Seth in the Second Intermediate Period (1650-1550 BCE)due his association with the thunder god Baal.

FOR CANAANITES SET REPRESENTED POWER AND FERTILITY,LIKE THE “HORNED GOD” BAAL

FOR EGYPTIANS SET WAS AN ANCIENT GOD AND THE FOUNDER OF EGYPT

Set was one of the earliest deities, with a strong following in Upper Egypt. Originally highly regarded throughout Kemet as the god of the desert, a political faction inspired an initial disparaging of Set’s name and reputation. Kemet(Egypt) was originally split into two kingdoms: Upper ruled by Horus (and later Ra), Lower by Set. Set’s followers resisted a unification of the Upper and Lower kingdoms of Egypt by the followers of Horus/Ra (and later with the followers of Osiris and Isis). This political split was echoed in the Osiris & Isis myth, and subsequent battle with Horus. The followers of Horus thus denigrated Set as chaotic and evil.Set was further demonized immediately after the Hyksos Period, the evidence from the Nineteenth Dynasty proves that this is a more complex picture.

THE EXPULSION OF SET (SETH)

By the 22nd Dynasty, Set was equated with his old enemy, Apep, and his images on temples were replaced with those of Sobek or Thoth.

THE REDHEADED CHOSEN ONES OF SET(SETH)

Its noted that the Ramessides (the family of Ramses II), were devoted to Seth, with several bearing the name Seti, which means “beloved of Seth”. She concluded that the Ramessides believed themselves to be divine descendants of Seth, with their red hair as proof of their lineage; they may even have used this peculiar physical feature to propel themselves out of obscurity, and onto the throne of the Pharaohs. Desroches-Noblecourt also speculated that Ramesses II may well have been descended from a long line of redheads. [Balout, et al. (1985) 388-391.]

Her speculations have been proved correct: Dr. Joann Fletcher, a consultant to the British Bioanthropology Foundation, has proved that Seti I (the father of Ramesses II), had red hair. [Parks (2000).] It has also been demonstrated that the mummy of Pharaoh Siptah (a great-grandson of Ramesses II), has red hair. [Partridge (1994) 169.]

“After having achieved this immense work, an important scientific conclusion remains to be drawn: the anthropological study and the microscopic analysis of hair, carried out by four laboratories: Judiciary Medecine (Professor Ceccaldi), Société L’Oréal, Atomic Energy Commission, and Institut Textile de France showed that Ramses II was a ’leucoderm’, that is a fair-skinned man, near to the Prehistoric and Antiquity Mediterraneans, or briefly, of the Berber of Africa.” Balout, et al. (1985) 383.

REDHEADS ARE THE CHOSEN ONES OF SET…..KING DAVID IS CLAIMED TO HAVE BEEN A REDHEAD

In ancient Egypt, the god Seth was said to have been red-haired, and redheads were claimed to have worshipped the god devoutly. [Wainwright (1938) 31, 33, 53.]

How white were the Israelites? Facial reconstruction may be surprising

By Ofri Ilani, Haaretz Correspondent

It is said in the tanach that King David had a ruddy complexion and was a redhead.

http://www.haaretz.com/hasen/objects/pages/ResponseDetails.jhtml?resNo=4114025&itemno=1037262&cont=2

It is interesting to note the link to the North African Berbers: some Berber tribes, such as the Riffians of the Atlas Mountains, have incidences of blondism reaching almost 60%, and they have a percentage of red-haired people which is comparable to that of the Irish. [Coon & Hunt (1966) 116-117.]

Recent genetic findings suggest that the people now known as Gaelic speaking Celts (including Irish, Welsh, Scots, Basques and Berbers) are a remnant of a group of people who also left Spain between 18,000 and 12,000 years ago

Set was said to be the son either of Nut and Geb or of Nut and Ra, and the brother of Isis, Osiris and Nephthys. Nephthys was sometimes given as his consort, although he is more commonly associated with the foreign, Semitic goddesses Astarte and Anat. Set was also identified by the Egyptians with the Hittite (proto-Celtic Aryans) deity Teshub, who was a storm god like Set.

CIRCUMSITION WAS A SACRIFICE TO A MALE FERTILITY GOD

GODS LIKE SET AND BAAL AND EL,ALL  HORNED GODS

SET WAS THE “HORNED GOD” OF ANCIENT EGYPT

“One night while Moses was in camp, Jehovah was about to kill him.

But Zipporah [his wife] circumcised her son with a flint knife … So Jehovah did not harm Moses.

Zipporah said, ‘You are a bridegroom of blood’.”

– Exodus 4.24-26.

http://www.jesusneverexisted.com/#sthash.gaywBx4C.dpuf

Set was most likely a version of the Aryan fertility god. The horned god of the forsets.That is why the “desert” animal of Set animal is a mystery. Circumsition was a pagan ferility right to the male fertility god, the horned god. As woman show thier fertility by bleeding from thier genitals , so a sacrifice to the male fertility god was blood from the male genitals.This would seem reasonable as the penis is clearly inhabited by powers that produce life.

Indeed, evidence of a connection with harvests is also found in Nicaragua, where blood from the operations is mixed with maize to be eaten during the ceremony

Others believe that circumcision arose as a mark of defilement or slavery.The Phoenicians, and later the Jews who were largely enslaved, adopted and ritualized circumcision. In time, circumcision was incorporated into Judaic religious practice and viewed as an outward sign of a covenant between God and man (Genesis XVI, Fig. 2).

THE JEWISH TEMPLE LAYOUT

Egyptian Temple Plan

Egyptian Temple Plan

Set was worshipped in the relatively large metropolitan (yet provincial) locale of Sepermeru, especially during the Rammeside Period. There, Seth was honored with an important temple called the “House of Seth, Lord of Sepermeru.” One of the epithets of this town was “gateway to the desert,”

At Sepermeru, Set’s temple-enclosure included a small secondary shrine called “The House of Seth, Powerful-Is-His-Mighty-Arm,”

The meaning of the town’s name (“near to the desert”) signifies its status as a frontier community (cf. H. te Velde, Seth: God of Confusion, p. 118, n.2) and was thus a suitable cult center for the god Seth.

Religious and administrative prominence in Nome XIX(19th Dynasty) was duly shifted south to Oxyrhynchus after this time (cf. te Velde, Seth: God of Confusion, p. 139). We know, however, that Seth continued to be the object of veneration in cult centers on the outskirts of Egypt well into Roman times, especially at Dakhlah Oasis, Kellis, Mut, Kharga, and Deir el- Haggar (cf. te velde, van Dijk, Essays, p. 236). It may be that Seth’s cult survived in some form at Sepermeru, long after Sepermeru’s decline as a religious center.

THIS IS THE SAME GROUNDPLAN AS THE JEWISH TEMPLE

JEWISH SACRIFICES

Set was also believed to have white skin and red hair,red animals and even people with red hair were thought to be his followers. These animals were sometimes sacrificed, while the link between Set and red-heads – usually foreigners – gave him godhood over foreign lands

THE HEBREWS SACRIFICED RED ANIMALS TO GOD

According to Numbers 19:2: “Speak unto the children of Israel, that they bring thee a red heifer without spot, wherein is no blemish, and upon which never came yoke” — in other words, the animal must not have hairs of any other color, it must be in perfect health, and it must never have been used to perform work.

The existence of a red heifer that conforms with all of the rigid requirements imposed by halakha is a biological anomaly. The animal must be entirely of one color, and there are a series of tests listed by the rabbis to ensure this, for instance, the hair of the cow must be absolutely straight (to ensure that the cow had not previously been yoked, as this is a disqualifier). According to Jewish tradition, only nine Red Heifers were actually slaughtered in the period extending from Moses to the destruction of the Second Temple. Mishnah Parah recounts eight, stating that Moses prepared the first, Ezra the second, Simon the Just and Yochanan the High Priest prepared two each, and Eliechonnai ben Hakkot and Hanameel the Egyptian prepared one each. (Mishna Parah 3:4)

The absolute rarity of the animal, combined with the mystical ritual in which it is used, have given the Red Heifer special status in Jewish tradition. It is cited as the prime example of a chok, or biblical law for which there is no apparent logic, and is therefore of absolute Divine origin. Because the state of ritual purity obtained through the ashes of a Red Heifer is a necessary prerequisite for participating in any Temple service, efforts have been made in modern times by Jews wanting to rebuild the Temple to locate a red heifer and recreate the ritual.

The Temple Institute, an organization dedicated to preparing the reconstruction of a Third Temple in Jerusalem, has been attempting to identify Red Heifer candidates consistent with the requirements of Numbers 19:1-22 and Mishnah Tractate Parah

THE JEWISH ROD OF GOD

THE STAFF OF SET OR THE “SET STAFF”

SET holds a scepter of was (Set-Staff) in his left hand. Called The Was sceptre (“of power”) the scepters represent the Set-animal and the Was sceptre’ -was a symbol of power and dominion -and in later use, as a symbol of control over the force of chaos (Set)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Was

God had Moses practice transforming his rod into a serpent and inflicting and healing leprosy.

At the battle with Amalek, he[Aaron] is chosen with Hur to support the hand of Moses that held the “rod of God” (Exodus 17:9)…

…aka The SET STAFF or “staff of was” which was the symbol of authority for a High priest of SET

“Was scepters” were used as symbols of power or dominion, and were associated with the gods such as Set or Anubis

“Was scepters” were depicted as being carried by gods, pharaohs, and priests.

The Was (ws) is also the Egyptian hieroglyphic character that stands for a word meaning power

The ‘was’-sceptre is also the symbol of the fourth Upper Egyptian nome, the nome of Thebes (called ‘Waset’ in Egyptian).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Was

In the culture of the Israelites, the rod would be a natural symbol of authority,

Aaron’s rod refers to any of the staffs carried by Moses’ brother, Aaron, in the Old Testament of the bible

God commanded Moses to raise his rod over the Red Sea when it was to be parted (Exodus 14:16) and in prayer over Israel in battle (Exodus 17:9); Moses brings forth water from a stone using his rod (Exodus 17, Numbers 20:11).

220px-Anubis_standing_svg

Anubis (pron.: /əˈnuːbəs/ or /əˈnjuːbəs/; Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις) is the Greek name for a (presumably) jackal-headed god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion.Anubis dictated the fate of souls. In this manner, he was a Lord of the Underworld He is the son of Nephthys and Set according to the Egyptian mythology, Osiris’ brother and the god of the desert and darkness. According to the Akkadian transcription in the Amarna letters, Anubis’ name was vocalized in Egyptian as Anapa. The oldest known mention of Anubis is in the Old Kingdom pyramid texts, where he is associated with the burial of the pharaoh. At this time, Anubis was the most important god of the dead but he was replaced during the Middle Kingdom by Osiris.

He takes names in connection with his funerary role, such as He who is upon his mountain,which underscores his importance as a protector of the deceased and their tombs, and the title He who is in the place of embalming

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anubis

This is a pyramidion – top of a Pyramid. The Hieroglyphs above ANUBIS correctly read:

ANEBES VARTI = “The Gates of Heaven” The Hieroglyphs around ANUBIS correctly read ARAJINA SHKIP-RITA = “The Box (Coffin) of Orion” ARON HABERIT

When the Myth of Osiris and Isis emerged, it was said that when Osiris had been killed by Set, Osiris’ organs were given to Anubis as a gift.

EGYPTIAN ARKS

KOSHER FOOD

The Greeks associated Set with Typhon, the largest monster ever born. Typhon was the son of the Earth and Tartarus (the place of torture in Hades), and thoroughly evil. Both were storm gods associated with the colour red and with pigs (whose meat was considered to be unclean by many cultures including the Egyptians).

JACOBS LADDER THE LADDER OF SET
“Homage to thee, O divine Ladder! Homage to thee O Ladder of Set! Stand thou upright, O divine Ladder! Stand thou upright, O Ladder of Set! Stand thou upright, O Ladder of Horus, whereby Osiris came forth into heaven.”
— Pyramid Texts,
JACOB(A HYKSOS SET WORSHIPING PHARONIC NAME) SUPPLANTS THE “CHOSEN DIVINE RED RULER”
His original name Ya’akov is sometimes explained as having meant “supplanter”.
Genesis 25:29-34 tells the account of Esau selling his birthright to Jacob. This passage states that Esau, returning famished from the fields, begged Jacob to give him some of the stew that Jacob had just made. (Esau referred to the dish as “that same red pottage”, giving rise to his nickname, Hebrew: אדום‎ (`Edom, meaning “Red”).) Jacob offered to give Esau a bowl of stew in exchange for his birthright, to which Esau agreed.
NOW JACOB IS RENAMED ISRAEL “WRESTLES GOD”
Jacob is renamed Israel by God (Genesis 32:28-29 and 35:10). Etymologically, the name “Israel” comes from the Hebrew words לִשְׂרות (lisrot, “wrestle”) and אֵל (El, “God”)

POLYTHEISTIC TRINITIES OF GODS

A theme common to modern Abrahamic monotheism today. We see this in the Christian trinity and the Jewish understanding of god as “aspects of god” ,the incomprehesible aspect ,the revealed aspect and the interacting aspect.

There were several forms of the Trinity in Ancient Egyptian religion depending on the geographic locality where the teaching was espoused. These included:

Amun-Mut-Khons, Ptah­-Sekhmet-Nefertem, Horus-Hathor-Harsomtus (Horus the Younger), Khnum-Anukis-Satis, Ptah­-Seker-Ausar (Osiris). However, the most popular Trinity throughout all of Ancient Egypt was that of Osiris-Isis-Horus

AND THUS…. IS-RA-EL -

Is probably ISIS-RA(or AMEN)-EL(BAAL/SET)

As stated in your religious texts……..the “sons of God” who appear in Genesis 6:2 are identified as the children of Seth(Set)(…and “Amen Ra” was depicted as the Bull ,sound familiar?hint Golden idols), and the “daughters of men” as women descended from Cain, who successfully tempt most of the Sethites to come down from their mountain and join the Cainites in the valley below, under the instigation of Genun son of Lamech.

THE BIBLICAL CITY OF AMUN

Thebes was known in the Egyptian language from the end of the New Kingdom as niwt-imn, “The City of Amun.” This found its way into the Hebrew Bible as נא אמון (nōʼ ʼāmôn) (Nahum 3:8),”City of Amon” referring to the Egyptian deity Amon-Ra

Amun-Ra. In the Hymn to Amun-Ra he is described as “Lord of truth, father of the gods, maker of men, creator of all animals, Lord of things that are, creator of the staff of life.”

The Crown of Amen

amun1

Amen is usually depicted as a man wearing a headdress with two tall plumes rising from a short crown. As Amen-Ra, thesun disk is added between the plumes, showing his connection to the sun.Horus is also seen wearing the headdress of Amen. It is said that also other gods are unaware of his true form, as they were created later than him and by him. His invisibility carries connotations with the wind, or breeze,and which is seen in the depictions where he carries two high plumes on top of his head, plumes being a sign for wind or air. — The Creation Myths, Akhet

AMEN THE GOLDEN CALF

“And all the people brake off the golden earrings which were in their ears, and brought them unto Aaron. And he received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt.” – Exodus 32:3,4

Egyptian King Kneeling Before the Apis Bull

Egyptian King Kneeling Before the Apis Bull

“bull of his mother”

Amen’s growth to that of a national god mirrored the growth of Thebes in importance. This growth was accelerated when Amenemhet I took control of the thrown at Thebes, and founded the 12th Dynasty. However, the apex of his worship probably occurred during the New Kingdom onward at Thebes, where the important Opet festival was dedicated to Amun. During the Opet festival, the statue of Amun was conveyed by boat from the temple of Karnak to Luxor in order to celebrate Amun’s marriage to Mut in his aspect of Ka-mut-ef (literally, “bull of his mother”). In this capacity, Amun was recognized for his procreative function

APIS, a sacred bull worshipped at Memphis from the earliest period, having probably been introduced into the religious system as early as the 2nd dynasty by the king Kaiechos, who instituted the worship of Apis and the bull Mnevis.

There was a succession of sacrifices under the 19th dynasty, commencing with Seti or Sethos I., besides three which died in the 16th, 26th, and 30th years of Rameses II., and three others, the dates of whose deaths are unknown. Under the 20th dynasty there was an Apis which died in the 26th year of Rameses III

Amen’s name in hieroglyphs was Hapi, and meant “the hidden,” as he had to be discovered amidst the cattle, which was done by certain diacritical marks.

Amun-Re grew so important spiritually and politically by the time of the New Kingdom that Egypt became something of a Theocracy. At the apex of his worship, Egyptian religion approached monotheism. The other gods became mere symbols of his power, or manifestations of Amun-Re. In essence, he became the one and only supreme deity.

WE SEE AMEN CHANGE FROM THE BULL OF HIS MOTHER ,TO THE RAM OF GOD

THIS IS DUE TO SUN WORSHIP AND THE PROCESSION OF THE EQUINOXES

THIS SHOWS HOW OLD AMEN WORSHIP IS.

An astrological age is a time period which astrology postulates parallel major changes in the development of Earth’s inhabitants, particularly relating to culture, society and politics. There are twelve astrological ages corresponding to the twelve zodiacal signs in western astrology. At the completion of one cycle of twelve astrological ages, the cycle repeats itself. Astrological ages occur because of a phenomenon known as the precession of the equinoxes. One complete period of this precession is called a Great Year or Platonic Year of about 25,920 years

THE PRIESTS OF AMUN

THE  POLITICAL PUPPET MASTERS OF EGYPT DEDICATED TO SET/AMEN POLYTHEISM

THEY ARE IN A POLITICAL/RELIGIOUS POWER STRUGGLE WITH PHAROAH AND SUN WORSHIPPERS

…SOME SUN WORSHIPPERS SHOWS SIGNS IF MONOTHEISM

While not regarded as a dynasty, the High Priests of Amun at Thebes were nevertheless of such power and influence that they were effectively the rulers of Upper Egypt from 1080 to c.943 BC,The Amun priests owned two-thirds of all the temple lands in Egypt and 90 percent of her ships plus many other resources.Consequently, the Amun priests were as powerful as Pharaoh, if not more so.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Priests_of_Amun_at_Thebes

HIGH PRIESTS OF AMEN ,MALE FERTILITY WORSHIPPERS

The High Priests of Thebes supportted Set worshipping Pharoahs,like Seti I (also called Sethos I after the Greeks) was a Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt (Nineteenth dynasty of Egypt) and Seti II (1200 – 1194 BCE) and any Pharoah supportting male fertility or standing against sun worship

REBELLIOUS PHAROAHS OF THE SUN

…AND THE BIRTH OF MONOTHEISM IN EGYPT

Its was the sun worshipping RA/Horus Pharoahs that left Thebes and built thier own power bases. Akenaten failed ,but Ramoses succeeded ,in the bible he built 3 cities all dedicated to the sun,RA ,Atum and Helios.In reality he only built the city to RA,which was built on the ruins of Avairs ,the Hyksos city of Set.It would seem this is why he is still vilified today by the Abrahamic monotheists

POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS CHANGES HAPPEN AFTER THE HYKSOS EXPULSION

AMEN-RA IS CREATED AFTER THE HYKSOS EXPULSION

AND SO IS THE TITLE PHAROAH…A KING DEDICATED TO THE SUN

After the rebellion of Thebes against the Hyksos and with the rule of Ahmose I, Amun acquired national importance, expressed in his fusion with the Sun god, Ra, as Amun-Ra.

Amun-Ra retained chief importance in the Egyptian pantheon throughout the New Kingdom (with the exception of the “Atenist heresy” under Akhenaten). Amun-Ra in this period (16th to 11th centuries BC) held the position of transcendental, self-created creator deity “par excellence”, he was the champion of the poor or troubled and central to personal piety. His position as King of Gods developed to the point of virtual monotheism where other gods became manifestations of him. With Osiris, Amun-Ra is the most widely recorded of the Egyptian gods. As the chief deity of the Egyptian Empire, Amun-Ra also came to be worshipped outside of Egypt, in Ancient Libya and Nubia, and as Zeus Ammon came to be identified with Zeus in Ancient Greece.

Amun rose to the position of tutelary deity of Thebes after the end of the First Intermediate Period, under the 11th dynasty. As the patron of Thebes, his spouse was Mut. In Thebes, Amun as father, Mut as mother and the Moon god Khonsu formed a divine family or “Theban Triad”.

Horus and Set

Horus and Set

THERE HAD ALWAYS BEEN A POWER STRUGGLE IN EGYPT BETWEEN MALE FERTILITY WORSHIPPERS ,WHO WORSHIPPED SET/ AMEN,AND SUN WORSHIPPERS THAT WORSHIPPED RA OSIRIS ISIS HORUS

THIS STRUGGLE PEAKED IN THE 19TH AND 20TH DYNASTIES 1292–1069 BC

Amen/Set worship came via Aryan male fertility cults(Set=the horned god , Amen=Anu the Supreme Being) . Redheads where the “chosen ones” of Set(David was a redhead). Red animals where sacrificed to Set(the judaic Red Heffer). The Set staff was the symbol of power(The rod of Aaron) circumcistion was a sacrifice to a male fertility god.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Horus

AS SET IS A VERSION OF THE ARYAN “HORNED GOD”(MALE FERTILITY) ,ORIGINALLY A FOREST ANIMAL.

IT HAS NO EQUIVILANT IN A DESERT EGYPT!!

SET WORSHIP IS SO OLD IT IS A PROMINEMT FORCE IN THE BIRTH OF EGYPT!

In art, Set is mostly depicted as a fabulous creature, referred to by Egyptologists as the Set animal or Typhonic beast. The Typhon has a curved snout, square ears, forked tail, and canine body; sometimes, Set is depicted as a human with only the head of the Set animal. It does not resemble any known creature, although it could be seen as a composite of an aardvark, a donkey, a jackal, or a fennec

The earliest representations of what may be the Set animal comes from a tomb dating to the Naqada I phase of the predynastic period (3790 BC–3500 BC), though this identification is uncertain. If these are ruled out, then the earliest Set-animal appears on a mace head of the Scorpion King, a protodynastic ruler. The head and the forked tail of the Set animal are clearly present

Regardless, once the two lands were united, Set and Horus were often shown together crowning the new pharaohs, as a symbol of their power over both Lower and Upper Egypt. Queens of the 1st Dynasty bore the title “She Who Sees Horus and Set.” The Pyramid Texts present the pharaoh as a fusion of the two deities. Evidently, pharaohs believed that they balanced and reconciled competing cosmic principles. Eventually the dual-god Horus-Set appeared, combining features of both deities (as was common in Egyptian theology, the most familiar example being Amun-Ra).

THE EGYPTIAN GOD SET

God of storms, the desert, and chaos

Set (also spelled Seth, Setesh, Sutekh, Setekh or Suty) was a god of the desert, storms, and foreigners in ancient Egyptian religion. In later myths he was also the god of darkness, and chaos. In Ancient Greek, the god’s name is given as Σήθ (Seth).

In Egyptian mythology, Set is portrayed as the usurper that killed and mutilated his own brother Osiris. Osiris’ wife Isis reassembled Osiris’ corpse and embalmed him. Osiris’ son Horus, sought revenge upon Set, and the myths describe their conflicts. The death of Osiris and the battle between Horus and Set is a popular theme in Egyptian mythology.

THE STORY OF SET AND OSIRIS

A STORY OF RESSURECTING GODS

IMMACULATE CONCEPTIONS ,SONS OF GOD ,BODIES IN BASKETS FLOATING ON RIVERS,

AND USURPING RULE IN HEAVEN

the legend of set and osiris

Egyptian politics at this time began with a battle between Ra/Osiris/Horus worshippers and Amen/Set worshippers for power of the unified Upper and Lower Egypt.

In the mythology of Heliopolis, Set was born of the sky goddess Nut and the earth god Geb. Set’s twin sister and wife was Nepthys. Nut and Geb also produced another set of twins who became husband and wife: the divine Osiris and Isis, whose son was Horus. The myth of Set’s conflict with Horus, Osiris, and Isis appears in many Egyptian sources, including the Pyramid Texts, the Coffin Texts, the Shabaka Stone, inscriptions on the walls of the temple of Horus at Edfu, and various papyrus sources. The Chester Beatty Papyrus No. 1 contains the legend known as The Contention of Horus and Set. Classical authors also recorded the story, notably Plutarch’s De Iside et Osiride.[4]

Isis with Horus the child

Isis with Horus the child

These myths generally portray Osiris as a wise lord, king, and bringer of civilization, happily married to his sister, Isis. Set was envious of his brother, and he killed and dismembered Osiris. Isis reassembled Osiris’ corpse and embalmed him. As the archetypal mummy, Osiris reigned over the afterworld as a king among deserving spirits of the dead. Osiris’ son Horus was conceived by Isis with Osiris’ corpse. Horus naturally became the enemy of Set, and the myths describe their conflicts. Some Egyptologists have reconstructed these as Set poking out Horus’s left eye, and Horus retaliating by castrating Set. However the references to an eye and testicles appear more indirect, referring to the evil Set sexually abusing the young Horus, who protects himself by deflecting the seed of Set, which can be construed as the theft of Set’s virile power.[5]

FOR EGYPTIANS THIS GIVES US THE EYE OF HORUS SYMBOL

AND MARKS THE END OF SET IN EGYPT AS A MALE FERTILITY GOD AND POSSIBLY THE END OF PHARONIC LINEAGE ,

IT ALSO LAYS GROUDWORK FOR LATER BIBLICAL STORIES .LIKE THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION ,THE RESURRECTION, THE CHILD GOD ,CAIN AND ABEL, THE STRUGGLE FOR POWER IN HEAVEN ,AND SATAN

It has also been suggested that the myth may reflect historical events. According to the Shabaka Stone, Geb divided Egypt into two halves, giving Upper Egypt (the desert south) to Set and Lower Egypt (the region of the delta in the north) to Horus, in order to end their feud. However, according to the stone, in a later judgment Geb gave all Egypt to Horus. Interpreting this myth as a historical record would lead one to believe that Lower Egypt (Horus’ land) conquered Upper Egypt (Set’s land); but, in fact Upper Egypt conquered Lower Egypt. So the myth cannot be simply interpreted

The pyramid form was associated with the sun god Re, who had been overshadowed by Amun in importance. One of the meanings of Amun’s name was the hidden one, which meant that it was now theologically permissible to hide the Pharaoh’s tomb by fully separating the mortuary template from the actual burial place. This provided the added advantage that the resting place of the pharaoh could be kept hidden from necropolis robbers. All subsequent pharaohs of the New Kingdom would be buried in rock-cut shaft tombs in the Valley of the Kings

This political split was echoed in the Osiris & Isis myth, and subsequent battle with Horus. The followers of Horus thus denigrated Set as chaotic and evil

WE SEE EGYPTIANS WORSHIP SET DIFFERENTLY FROM THE HYKSOS

IN THE BEGINNING EGYPTIANS SEE SET AS THE GUARDIAN OF POLYTHEISTIC BELIEFS AGAINST “THE CHAOS”

ORIGINALLY SET WORSHIPPERS PROBABLY DID HOLD SWAY. THAT WAS WHY THE CAPITAL WAS IN THEBBES FOR SO LONG

BUT THE CHANGE IN SOCIO-POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS POWER AND INFLUENCE MAKES SENSE WHEN YOU REALISE THAT THE HYKSOS RULE PUT THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE OFF WORSHIPPING SET!!

AND POWER MOVES NORTH TO THE SUN WORSHIPPING PHAROAHS

SET WORSHIP IS ABANDONED AND AMEN IS MERGED WITH RA

THE ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE

SET FOUNDER OF EGYPT

Scorpion, or Selk, also King Scorpion or Scorpion II refers to the second of two kings so-named of Upper Egypt during the Protodynastic Period.

SCORPIONS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SET

THE SCORPION KING CARRIES A MACE WITH A SET ANIMAL SYMBOL c4000BC

The earliest known representation of Set comes from a tomb dating to the Naqada I phase of the Predynastic Period (circa 4000 BC–3500 BC), and the Set-animal is even found on a mace-head of the Scorpion King, a Protodynastic ruler.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Scorpion

Narmer(Angry Catfish) was an ancient Egyptian pharaoh of the Early Dynastic Period (c. 31st century BC). Probably the successor to the Protodynastic pharaohs Scorpion and/or Ka, some consider him the unifier of Egypt and founder of the First Dynasty, therefore the first pharaoh of unified Egypt.

IN EGYPTIAN MYTH IT WAS A CATFISH THAT ATE OSIRIS’S PENIS AFTER SET HAD KILLED AND CHOPPED HIM UP!!

THE PALETTE IS TOPPED WITH HORNED GODS, THE PALETTE CLAIMS NARMER AS THE ANGRY CATFISH

IT SHOWS HIM WEARING THE CROWN OF UPPER AND LOWER EGYPT

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narmer_palette

The red crown of Lower Egypt – the Deshret crown – dates back to pre-dynastic times. A red crown has been found on a pottery shard from Naqada, and later, king Narmer is shown wearing the red crown on both the Narmer macehead and the Narmer palette.

The white crown of Upper Egypt – the Hedjet crown – is shown on the Qustul incense burner which dates to the pre-dynastic period. Later, King Scorpion was depicted wearing the white crown, as was Narmer.

The combination of red and white crown into the double crown – or Pschent crown – is first documented in the middle of the first dynasty. The earliest depiction may date to the reign of Djet, and is otherwise surely attested during the reign of Den

During the Old Kingdom, Horus and Set were generally viewed as twin supporters and defenders of the god Ra, head of the Egyptian pantheon; and they were often depicted anointing the king, as the divine source of his authority.

Both the Second Dynasty kings Peribsen and Khasekhemwy, whose serekhs depict the set animal, identified themselves as divine manifestations of Set on earth

Seth attained particular prominence in the late Second Dynasty, temporarily replacing, then joining, Horus as the god atop the royal serekh. When the name Peribsen, who was the penultimate king of the Second Dynasty, was written in a serekh, it was surmounted, not by the usual Horus falcon, but by the Seth animal, a hound or jackal-like creature with a wide, straight tail. Peribsen thus made a visual statement that he was the earthly embodiment of Seth. The importance of Seth in the reign of Peribsen was also reflected in a sealing of the king from Abydos. It referred to a god named ‘the golden one’ or, perhaps more likely, ‘he of Nubt (Naqada)’, the usual epithet of Seth in historic times.

Was (“power”) scepters represent the Set-animal. Was scepters were carried by gods, pharaohs, and priests, as a symbol of power, and in later use, control over the force of chaos (Set). The head and forked tail of the Set-animal are clearly present. Was scepters are often depicted in paintings, drawings, and carvings of gods, and remnants of real was scepters have been found constructed of faience or wood.

THE SECOND INTERMEDIATE PERIOD

Set in the Second Intermediate and Ramesside Periods c1550-1069BC

The Second Intermediate Period marks a period when Ancient Egypt fell into disarray for a second time.

During the Second Intermediate Period, a group of Asiatic foreign chiefs known as the Hyksos (literally, “rulers of foreign lands”) gained the rulership of Egypt, and ruled the Nile Delta, from Avaris. They chose Set, originally Upper Egypt’s chief god, the god of foreigners and the god they found most similar to their own chief god, as their patron, and so Set became worshiped as the chief god once again.The Hyksos at their capital Avaris worshiped and venerated Seth in the Second Intermediate Period (1650-1550 BCE)due to his association with the thunder god Baal.

The Hyksos King Apophis is recorded as worshiping Set in a monolatric way: “[He] chose for his Lord the god Seth. He didn’t worship any other deity in the whole land except Seth.” Jan Assmann argues that because the Ancient Egyptians could never conceive of a “lonely” god lacking personality, Seth the desert god, who was worshiped exclusively, represented a manifestation of evil.[5]

The Hyksos had Canaanite names, as seen in those with names of Semitic deities such as Anath or Ba’al.Apophis is refered to as a “Chieftain of Retjenu (i.e. Canaan)” in a stela which implies a Canaanite background for this Hyksos king: this is the strongest evidence for a Canaanite background for the Hyksos. Khyan’s name “has generally been interpreted as Amorite “Hayanu”Seuserenre Khyan, Khian or Khayan was reportedly the fourth king of the Hyksos Fifteenth dynasty of Egypt who ruled approximately c.1610-1580 BC a stela set up in Avaris contains the nomen and prenomen of Khayan and a now lost dedication (presumably to Seth, Lord of Avaris)

THE EXPULSION OF THE HYKSOS STARTS A GOLDEN AGE FOR EGYPT

IT ALSO MARKS THE DECLINE AND LATER EXPULSION OF SET WORSHIP IN EGYPT

IN THE HYKSOS EXPULSION TO GAZA ,EXODUS 1, THE HYKSOS BRING EGYPTIAN CULTURE WITH THEM

THIS WOULD INCLUDE EGYPTIAN SET WORSHIP

IN CANAAN, SET WAS WORSHIPPED AS BAAL

The first pharaoh of the 18th dynasty, Ahmose I, finally expelled the Hyksos from their last holdout at Sharuhen in Gaza by the 16th year of his reign.[6][7] Scholars have taken the increasing use of scarabs and the adoption of some Egyptian forms of art by the Fifteenth Dynasty Hyksos kings and their wide distribution as an indication of their becoming progressively Egyptianized.[8] The Hyksos used Egyptian titles associated with traditional Egyptian kingship, and took the Egyptian god Seth to represent their own titulary deity

AND THE TWO FACES OF SET IN EGYPT

THE EGYTPIAN MASTER OF CHAOS BECOMES A DEMONIC EVIL FOREIGNER (AKA HYKSOS)

The god Set (aka Seth) has been much of a puzzlement to Egyptologists. If we go with the attitude of later Egyptians, we find Set blamed for every misfortune that can befall humanity. However, if we go with the attitude of earlier times, in particular the Ramesside period, when Egypt was at its peak in prosperity, we find a completely different picture. For we find a god who was very much adored.

http://www.joanlansberry.com/setfind/setfind.html

Egypt: Set (Seth), God of Storms, Slayer of Apep, Equal to and Rival of Horus
Red animals and even people with red hair were thought to be his followers. These animals were sometimes sacrificed, while the link between Set and red-heads – usually foreigners – gave him godhood over foreign lands.Set was also a god of overseas trade of oils, wood and metals from over the sea and through desert routes. He was given lordship over western Asia because of this.
As Set was a god of the desert and probably symbolized the destructive heat of the afternoon sun, and thus was thought to be infertile.The hieroglyph for Set was used in words such as ‘turmoil’, ‘confusion’, ‘illness’, ‘storm’ and ‘rage’

When Ahmose I overthrew the Hyksos and expelled them from Egypt, Egyptian attitudes towards Asiatic foreigners became xenophobic, and royal propaganda discredited the period of Hyksos rule.But even with Avairs in ruins , the Set cult at Avaris flourished, and the Egyptian garrison of Ahmose stationed there became part of the priesthood of Set.

Set was further demonized immediately after the Hyksos Period.The evidence from the Nineteenth Dynasty proves that this is a more complex picture

THE CROWNING OF RAMOSES II BY SET AND HORUS

IT IS HORUS THAT WEARS BOTH THE RED AND WHITE CROWN

Seth and Horus adoring RamssesII

Seth and Horus adoring RamssesII

The founder of the nineteenth dynasty, Ramesses I came from a military family from Avaris with strong ties to the priesthood of Set. Several of the Ramesside kings were named for Set, most notably Seti I (literally, “man of Set”) and Setnakht (literally, “Set is strong”). In addition, one of the garrisons of Ramesses II held Set as its patron deity, and Ramesses II erected the so-called Four Hundred Years’ Stele at Pi-Ramesses, commemorating the 400 year anniversary of the Set cult in the Delta.

THE HORUS-SET OF THE RAMOSES
In the Old and Middle Kingdoms there are depictions of these two gods together either leading the prisoners of the pharaoh or binding the plants of Upper and Lower Egypt together (as does the twin Hapi gods) to symbolize the union of Upper and Lower Egypt. He was regarded as an equal to the hawk god. This was Horus the Elder, a god of the day sky while Set was seen as a god of the night sky. When these two gods were linked, the two were said to be Horus-Set, a man with two heads – one of the hawk of Horus, the other of the Set animal.
His majesty was like Seth, great-of-strength, like Sekhmet in the moment of her rage.
The Account of the Battle of Qedesh, the Ramesseum

SET IS REPLACED BY RA/HORUS AS THE SOCIO-RELIGIOUS POLITICAL POWER

Set also became associated with foreign gods during the New Kingdom, particularly in the Delta. Set was also identified by the Egyptians with the Hittite deity Teshub, who was a storm gods like Set.

There were at least two more subsidiary shrines in Sepermeru in Dynasties XIX and XX: a sanctuary called the “House of Seth, Powerful-is-His-Mighty-Arm,” and a cult-place called “The Sunshade of Re-Horakhte” (P. Wilbour, A45,11 and S29 and 169). Like the Nephthys temple, these smaller shrines were considered affiliations or dependencies “within the House” (or primary temple enclosure) of Seth, who was supreme “Lord” of the town.

HORUS-SET BECOMES THE EGYPTIAN HORUS THE AVENGER
AND THE UNNATURAL BISEXUAL FOREIGN SET FROM THE LAND OF CANAAN
Set was given the two foreign goddesses Anat and Astarte (war goddesses from the Syria-Palestine area and daughters of Ra) as wives in compensation for Ma´at’s (or Neith’s) ruling that Horus should rule Egypt.
However, he had no children, despite being married to the goddess of childbirth and a Cannanite fertility goddess as well as Nephthys and Neith.Not only was he infertile, but one of his testicles had been torn off by Horus when Set tore out Horus’ eye. Set only ate lettuce, which was sacred to the fertility god Min(Amen as a male fertility god) because it secreted a white, milky substance that the Egyptians linked to semen and he was considered to have odd sexual habits.His bisexuality ,he assaulted Horus sexually starting with the come-on line “How lovely your backside is!” and his pursuit of Isis,his infertility and his connection with foreigners
were reasons why Set could never have been a ruler of Egypt instead of Osiris, despite originally being a lord of Upper Egypt.

http://www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk/set.html

SET BELIEF IS DEMONISED BY THE 20TH DYNASTY

Sepermeru is perhaps of most interest to modern Egyptologists because of its status as one of the chief ancient Egyptian cult centers of Seth, along with the cities of Ombos, Nagada, and Avaris . It is thought that the cult of Seth waned considerably after Dynasty XX, due to the increasing “demonization” of this deity and his association with territories and priorities increasingly considered foreign to the general interests of Egypt.

THE EGYPTIAN HORUS THE ELDER AND HORUS THE AVENGER MERGE
AND THE FOREIGN SET IS EXPELLED FROM EGYPT INTO CANAAN
It is likely that the cult of Horus overtook the cult of Set in ancient times, and started to remove his positive sides to give the god Horus more status. The two gods, Horus the Elder and Horus the son of Osiris and Isis were confused, so Set changed from being an equal to his brother, Horus the Elder, to the enemy of Isis’s son. It was only after the Hyksos took Set as their main god, after the Egyptians god rid of the foreigners, he stopped symbolizing Lower Egypt and his name was erased and his statues destroyed.

20TH DYNASTY c.1187 to 1064BC

SET IS “EXCORSICED” FROM EGYPT

Throughout history Seth’s reputation grew steadily worse, until he became Seth, the abominable. In the Book of victory over Seth the god is expelled from Egypt. Magic is invoked against him, his effigy is burned, and he is delivered to the Devourer. Even his mother Nut is driven to repudiate her son:

“Is there a mother who consumes her child?

Is there a woman who draws her knife against him who emerged from her?”

against that wretched Seth and his following,

(against him) who was not mild, who grasped in evil

(against him) who created evil against the body cleaver,

who was hard hearted against the benefactor,

who brought about unequalled crimes.”

THE BOOK OF VICTORY OVER SETH

The book of the victory over Seth

Ritual for causing the downfall of Seth and his followers which is performed in the temple of Osiris,

Instruction for the ritual performance

One shall bring a figure of Seth of red wax on the chest of which is engraved his name, as follows: Seth the abominable.

Furthermore draw him (Seth) on a new sheet of papyrus with fresh ink, or (bring a figure made of) acacia wood or HmA-wood.

Tie (the figure of Seth) with a sinew of a red cow; speak words over it.

[Spit on it] four times; speak words over it.

Stamp on it with the left foot, speak words over it.

Hit it with the spear; speak words over it.

Cut it with the knife; speak words over it.

Put it in the fire; speak words over it.

When it is in the fire spit on it again many times; speak words over it.

THE CAMPAIGN IS SUCCESSFUL

Originally Set and Horus fought and neither party could win because it was believed that they would continue to fight until the end of time when Ma’at was destroyed and the waters of Nun (chaos) engulfed the world. However, once Set had been recast as an evil entity, the story changed to record that Horus had won their battle, and thus good had triumphed over evil. Some historians have argued that the battle between Set and Horus was a mythological representation of the struggle to unite Egypt under one ruler. According to this theory, the followers of Horus were successful and so Set was pushed into the background and expelled from Egypt.

http://www.ancientegyptonline.co.uk/set.html

Seth is driven out of Egypt

They are expelling (you, who) is of evil disposition

and throw you in your badness into the land of the Asiatics.

Egypt, loyal to Horus, organized your slaughter;

your grief is repeated. They deliver you to the Devourer.

http://www.reshafim.org.il/ad/egypt/texts/victory_over_seth.htm

SET IS EXILED TO THE DESERT AND THE LAND OF CANAAN c.1000BC

The final history of Seth the Egyptian god claims that in a final act of vengeance, Horus is said to have exiled Seth to the desert for eternity. Other tales instead content that this decision was left up the ancient Egyptian gods and while there was some indecision among them; particularly in the case of Re, they finally chose to send Seth into exile.

BY THE 21ST DYNASTY C.1077 to 943BC

SET HAS LOST ALL POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS POWER IN EGYPT

BY THE 22ND DYNASTY C.942BC ALL REFERENCES TO SET ON TEMPLES HAD BEEN REPLACED

HORUS NOW RULES EGYPT

By the 22nd Dynasty, Set was equated with his old enemy, Apep, and his images on temples were replaced with those of Sobek or Thoth. a late inscription in the Ptolemaic temple of Horus at Edfu makes reference to “Seth of Sepermeru,” albeit with an insulting caveat that the god’s canals in this district had become “dried-up and useless” (cf. P. Wilson, A Ptolemaic Lexikon, p. 827).

Most modern popular misconceptions of Set come from Plutarch’s secondary source interpretations of Set (via the writings of Herodotus et al.), long after Set’s demonization (circa 100 A.D., Roman Period in Egypt).

.. AND THE LOSS OF POLITICAL POWER OF SET IN EGYPTIAN SOCIETY IS WHAT LED TO THE EXODUS

THERE ARE A COUPLE OF FAILED AND SEMI-SUCCESSFUL ATTEMPTS TO REGAIN POWER FOR SET IN EGYPT

BUT ULTIMATELY THEY COME TO NOTHING

THIS IS WHAT LED TO EXODUS II AND THE FLEEING TO CANNAN,THE LAND OF SET.

AN EXPULSION OR EVEN A MIGRATION MIGHT BE A BETTER DESCRIPTION,

THE LOCAL EGYPTIANS WHERE PROBABLY GLAD TO SEE THEM GO!

THERE ARE INSCRIPTIONS IN THE QUARRIES OF PI-RAMESES OF SEMITIC SLAVES BEGGING “EL” TO SAVE THEM (SEE EXODUS DECODED DOCUMENTRY)

FOR THE SEMITES SET REMAINS A FERTILITY GOD AS WELL AS A STORM GOD ,BUT NOW WITH HIS OLD CANNANITE TITLE

WITH THE HYKSOS EXPELLED TO CANAAN ,MALE FERTILITY SET/AMEN WORSHIP TAKES ON A CANAANITE FLAVOUR

ANCIENT CANNANITE POLYTHEISTIC EL/BA’AL WORSHIP,A MALE FERTILITY CULT

THE CULT OF SET IN EGYPT IS FORGOTTEN AND DIES ,EVEN HIS SON ANUBIS IS FORGOTTEN AND REPLACED WITH OSIRIS AS LORD OF THE DEAD.

AMEN BECAME A MAJOR INFLUENCIAL DEITY COMBINED WITH RA “AMEN-RA” AND OSIRIS AND ISIS WAS THE OTHER MAJOR BELIEF IN LATER EGYPT

SET WORSHIP HAD JUST BEEN FORGOTTEN AND ABANDONED…THANKS TO THE HYKSOS. NOT THE BEST START FOR THE PEOPLE OF THE “NEW GOD”

OTHER EVIDENCE OF SET WORSHIPPERS LEAVING EGYPT

Apion (20s BC – c. 45 AD), Graeco-Egyptian grammarian, sophist and commentator on Homer, was born at the Siwa Oasis, and flourished in the first half of the 1st century AD, identifies a second exodus mentioned by Manetho when a renegade Egyptian priest called Osarseph led 80,000 “lepers” to rebel against Egypt at the end of the 19th Dynasty (12th century). Then Apion additionally combines these with the Biblical Exodus, even alleges that this heretic priest changed his name to Moses.

THE GREEKS

NOT ONLY DO THEY MENTION THE BAAL/SET EXPULSION

BUT ALSO THE DAUGHTERS OF DANAOS(THE CELTS)

The story of the Hyksos was known to the Greeks, who attempted to identify it within their own mythology with the expulsion from Egypt of Belos (Baal? and the daughters of Danaos, associated with the origin of the Argive dynasty.(The argonauts)

E.g. Pseudo-Apollodorus, Bibliotheca ,2.1.4.

Karl Kerenyi, The Heroes of the Greeks 1959 (1974:30): “Belos, whose name reproduces the Phoenician Ba’al, ‘Lord'”.)

THE CELTIC EXODUS

THE CELTS ,IT SEEMS, LEFT EGYPT AT THE SAME TIME

BUT THEY HEADED WEST

It is probably at this time the Celtic Exodus takes place.

The Gaels, it is claimed in the “book of conquests” are the descendants of the Scythian prince Fénius Farsaid, one of seventy-two chieftains who built the Tower of Babel. His grandson Goídel Glas, whose mother is Scota(where Scotland gets its name), daughter of a Pharaoh of Egypt, creates the Irish language(gaelic) from the original seventy-two languages that arose at the time of the dispersal of the nations. His descendants, the Gaels, undergo a series of trials and tribulations. They flourish in Egypt at the time of Moses and leave during the Exodus

Set being an Aryan male fertility god the Redheaded Celtic/Berbers probably worshipped Set as well. But thier Exodus to Ireland lasted 440 years.

Archeology and DNA suggests these very real Celtiberians arrived in Ireland c.500- 1000BC ,having left from Spain .Thier DNA is still found in African Berbers today.So the exodus from Egypt would of been between 900 and 1440BC ,about the time that Set was being denegrated in Egypt.

A BRIEF NOTE ON EGYPTIAN MONOTHEISM

EGYPTIAN MONOTHEISTIC SUN WORSHIP

Pharaoh Akhenaten (center) and his family adoring the Aten, with characteristic rays seen emanating from the solar disk. The next figure leftmost is Meritaten, the daughter of Akhenaten, adorned in a double- feather crown.

Pharaoh Akhenaten (center) and his family adoring the Aten, with characteristic rays seen emanating from the solar disk. The next figure leftmost is Meritaten, the daughter of Akhenaten, adorned in a double- feather crown.

AKENATEN c1351–1334BC IS EGYPTIAN AND THE “ATEN” IS AN ASPECT OF RA HORUS,ITS REGELIA IS BIG HATS AND AN ANKH.

HE MOVED HIS POWER BASE AWAY FROM THE HIGH PRIESTS OF AMUN IN THEBES AND LOST THE POWER STRUGGLE.

Akhenaten (often also spelled Echnaton, Akhnaton, or rarely Ikhnaton) (In English,his royal name Amenhotep meaning Effective spirit of Aten, first known as Amenhotep IV (sometimes read as Amenophis IV and meaning Amun is Satisfied) before the first year of his reign), was a Pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty of Egypt, who died 1336 BC or 1334 BC. He is especially noted for attempting to compel the Egyptian population in the monotheistic worship of Aten

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Akenaten

Aten (or Aton) was the disk of the sun in ancient Egyptian mythology, and originally an aspect of Ra. He became the deity of the monotheistic — in fact, monistic — religion of Amenhotep IV, who took the name Akhenaten.The full title of Akhenaten’s god was The Rahorus who rejoices in the horizon, in his/her Name of the Light which is seen in the sun disc.

MONOTHEISM WAS AN EGYPTIAN SUN WORSHIP INVENTION.

RAMOSES II WAS POSSIBLY AN “AKENATEN” THAT BEAT THEBES,AS HE ALSO MOVED HIS POWER BASE AWAY FROM THEBES TO PI-RAMESSES AND ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE/TORAH, BUILT 3 CITIES ALL DEDICATED TO THE SUN, 1 RA , 2 ATUM AND 3 HELIOS.

RAMOSES WAS DEDICATED TO RA AND AS PHAROAH PERSONIFIED HORUS!

“ATEN” WAS THE “RA HORUS”.RAMOSES WEARS A BIG HAT AND CARRIES AN ANKH ,THE REGELIA OF ATEN AND RA/HORUS SUN WORSHIP.

E. A. Wallis Budge (1857–1934) claims that Ra was the one god of Egyptian monotheism, of which all other deities were aspects, manifestations, phases, or forms.

He asserted that Hymn to Ra (c. 1370s BC) was written to stress the pantheistic nature of Ra to combat encroaching polytheism. In this homage several deities are described not as beings in their own right, but as certain forms of Ra. For example:

“Praise be unto thee, O Ra, thou exalted Power, who dost enter into the habitations of Ament, behold [thy] body is Atum.”

“Praise be unto thee, O Ra, thou exalted Power, who dost enter into the hidden palace of Anubis, behold [thy] body is Khepera

THE SUN WORSHIPPING CONCEPT OF MAAT

Maat

Maat

Maat or ma’at (thought to have been pronounced *[muʔ.ʕat]), also spelled māt or mayet, was the ancient Egyptian concept of truth, balance, order, law, morality, and justice. Maat was also personified as a goddess regulating the stars, seasons, and the actions of both mortals and the deities, who set the order of the universe from chaos at the moment of creation

The earliest surviving records indicating Maat is the norm for nature and society, in this world and the next, were recorded during the Old Kingdom, the earliest substantial surviving examples being found in the Pyramid Texts of Unas (ca. 2375 BCE and 2345 BCE).

Later, as a goddess in other traditions of the Egyptian pantheon, where most goddesses were paired with a male aspect, her masculine counterpart was Thoth and their attributes are the same. After the rise of Ra they were depicted together in the Solar Barque.

 Judgement Day


Judgement Day

After her role in creation and continuously preventing the universe from returning to chaos, her primary role in Egyptian mythology dealt with the weighing of souls that took place in the underworld, Duat. Her feather was the measure that determined whether the souls (considered to reside in the heart) of the departed would reach the paradise of afterlife successfully.

Pharaohs are often depicted with the emblems of Maat to emphasise their role in upholding the laws of the Creator

The earliest evidence for a dedicated temple is in the New Kingdom (c. 1569 to 1081 BCE) era, despite the great importance placed on Maat. Amenhotep III commissioned a temple in the Karnak complex, whilst textual evidence indicates that other temples of Maat were located in Memphis and at Deir el-Medina

The doctrine of Maat is represented in the declarations to Rekhti-merti-f-ent-Maat and the 42 Negative Confessions listed in the Papyrus of Ani.

Egypt’s Golden Empire – Pharaohs of the Sun

AMENHOTEP III c.1388–1350BC FATHER OF AKENATEN AND A SUN WORSHIPPER

INVENTOR OF THE ATEN…..AND MONOTHEISM?

AMENHOTEP III AND QUEEN TIYE INVENTORS OF ATEN AND EGYPTIAN MONOTHEISM

Amenhotep III (Hellenized as Amenophis III; Egyptian Amāna-Ḥātpa; meaning Amun is Satisfied) also known as Amenhotep the Magnificent was the ninth pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty. According to different authors, he ruled Egypt from June 1386 to 1349 BC or June 1388 BC to December 1351 BC/1350 BC after his father Thutmose IV died. Amenhotep III was the son of Thutmose by a minor wife Mutemwiya.

His reign was a period of unprecedented prosperity and artistic splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of her artistic and international power.Proof of this is shown by the diplomatic correspondence from the rulers of Assyria, Mitanni, Babylon, and Hatti which is preserved in the archive of Amarna Letters; these letters document frequent requests by these rulers for gold and numerous other gifts from the pharaoh. The letters cover the period from Year 30 of Amenhotep III until at least the end of Akhenaten’s reign When he died (probably in the 39th year of his reign), his son initially ruled as Amenhotep IV, but later changed his own royal name to Akhenaten.

One of the king’s most popular epithets was Aten-tjehen which means “the Dazzling Sun Disk”; it appears in his titulary at Luxor temple and, more frequently, was used as the name for one of his palaces as well as the Year 11 royal barge, and denotes a company of men in Amenhotep’s army

Amenhotep III was the father of two sons with his Great Royal Wife Tiye, a queen who could be considered as the progenitor of monotheism through her first son, Crown Prince Thutmose, who predeceased his father, and her second son, Amenhotep IV, later known as Akhenaten, who ultimately succeeded Amenhotep III to the throne. Amenhotep III also may have been the father of a third child—called Smenkhkare, who later would succeed Akhenaten, briefly rule Egypt as pharaoh, and who is thought to have been a woman

The 18th Dynasty Ancient Egyptian colossal quartzite statue of Amenhotep III, dating from c.1350 BC, was found in the massive mortuary temple of the pharaoh Amenhotep III on the West Bank of the River Nile at Thebes (the present-day settlement of Kom el-Hitan) in Egypt

This golden quartzite statue was one of a series of near-identical statues that flanked the west side of a colonnaded courtyard. When complete, it would have measured more than 8 metres (26 feet) high without its base, and the body would have stood in the classic pose of Osiris with legs together and arms crossed, holding the crook and the flail, which were symbols of Egyptian kingship. The statue would have worn a short royal kilt and the red crown of Lower Egypt.

The statues on the other side of the courtyard were similar, but were made of red granite and wore the white crown of Upper Egypt

BUT FOR AKENATEN DISASTER…THE HIGH PRIESTS OF AMUN

The Egyptians themselves tried to hide the evidence of the Amarna king’s reigns from us. Neferneferuaten’s successor seems to have denied her a king’s burial and, later, in the reign of Horemheb of Amen, temple builder to Set ,the entire Amarna period began to be regarded as anathema and the reigns of the Amarna period pharaohs from Akhenaten to Aya were expunged from history as these king’s total regnal years were assigned to Horemheb.

Horemheb of Amon, instigated a campaign of damnatio memoriae against pharaohs associated with the unpopular Amarna Period. The result is that 3300 years later, scholars would have to piece together events and even resurrect the players bit by bit with the evidence sometimes limited to palimpsest – erased – text

AKENATEN JUST DEMONSTRATES THE SUN WORSHIP AND FERTILITY WORSHIP POWER STRUGLE GOING ON IN EGYPT FOR CONTROL OF EGYPT

AND THE CHAOS A CENTRALISED MONOTHEIST THEOCRACY BROUGHT TO EGYPT

THE RISE AND FALL OF RA AND MONOTHEISTIC SUN WORSHIP C.1388- 1334BC

Amarna (commonly known as el-Amarna or as Tell el-Amarna) (Arabic: العمارنة al-‘amārnah‎) is an extensive Egyptian archaeological site that represents the remains of the capital city newly established and built by the Pharaoh Akhenaten of the late Eighteenth Dynasty (c. 1353 BC), and abandoned shortly afterwards.The name for the city employed by the ancient Egyptians is written as Akhetaten (or Akhetaton—transliterations vary) in English transliteration. Akhetaten means “Horizon of the Aten”

To be able to make the move from Thebes to Amarna, Akhenaten needed the support of the military. Ay, one of Akhenaten’s principal advisors, exercised great influence in this area because his father Yuya had been an important military leader. Additionally, everyone in the military had grown up together, they had been a part of the richest period and most successful period of Egypt’s history under Akhenaten’s father, so loyalty among the ranks was strong and unwavering, and, perhaps most importantly, “it was a military whose massed ranks the king took every opportunity to celebrate in temple reliefs, first at Thebes and later at Amarna.”

It is very likely that a plague swept across Egypt between Akhenaten’s 12th and 15th regnal years, for many members of the royal family cease to be mentioned again; among them Queen Mother Tiye, Queen Nefertiti, Akhenaten’s secondary wife Kiya, Meketaten and the two youngest princesses, Neferneferure and Setepenre.

The power of the Amun priesthood was temporarily curtailed during the Amarna period. A high priest named Maya is recorded in year 4 of Akhenaten. Akhenaten has the name of Amun removed from monuments during his reign (as well as the names of several other deities). After Akhenaten’s death Amun is restored to his place of prominence among the cults in Egypt. The young pharaoh Tutankhaten changes his name to Tutankhamen to signal the restoration of the old god to his former place of prominence. Tutankhaten/Tutankhamun-Commonly believed to be the son of Akhenaten, probably reinstated the polytheistic religion and the name change reflects the change in primary deity from Aten to Amun 1333-1324BC and power moves back to Thebes.

As illustrated in a 2011 Metropolitan Museum of Art symposium on Horemheb, the general chronology of the late 18th Dynasty is:

Akhenaten 17 yrs

Ankhkheperure Neferneferuaten 2+ yrs

Ankhkheperure Smenkhkare 1–2 years

Tutankhaten/Tutankhamen 10 years

Ay 3 years

Horemheb 14 years

By the start of the 21st Century, a “a fair degree of consensus” emerged that Neferneferuaten was a female king and Smenkhkare a separate male king, particularly among specialists of the period. Almost as important, when presented with just the name Ankhkheperure, it is now widely accepted that the use of epithets indicates Neferneferuaten ,Akhet-en-hyes (“Effective for her husband”), while no epithets indicates Smenkhkare

We list Smenkhkare as the eleventh pharaoh of Egypt’s famous 18th Dynasty, ruling from 1336 until about 1334 BC. In point of fact, he may never have ruled on his own, though in the later years of Akhenaten reign, he was probably a co-regent. His birth name was Smenkh-ka-re (or Djeser-kheperu, meaning “Vigorous is the Soul of Re, Holy of Manifestations”). His name can also be found as Smenkhkara. His Throne name was Ankh-khepery-re, meaning “Living are the Manifestations of Re”.

AMEN SUPPORTTERS TAKE CONTROL AGAIN ,AY CONTROLS THE YOUNG REGENT

THE VERY YOUNG REGENT PHAROAH TUTANKATEN ,CHANGES HIS NAME TO AMEN AND ABANDONS AMARNA AND RETURNS THE SEAT OF POWER TO THEBES

It is the only ancient Egyptian city which preserves great details of its internal plan, in large part because the city was abandoned after the death of Akhenaten, when Akhenaten’s son, King Tutankhamen, decided to leave the city and return to his birthplace in Luxor. The city seems to have remained active for a decade or so after his death, and a shrine to Horemheb indicates that it was at least partially occupied at the beginning of his reign, if only as a source for building material elsewhere. Once it was abandoned it remained uninhabited until Roman settlement.

AY LEADS THE POLYTHEISTIC RELIGIOUS AMEN FACTION

HOREMHEB LEADS THE POLYTHEISTIC SET MILITARY FACTION

Tutankhamun (alternatively spelled with Tutenkh-, -amen, -amon) was an Egyptian pharaoh of the 18th dynasty (ruled ca. 1332 BC – 1323 BC in the conventional chronology), during the period of Egyptian history known as the New Kingdom. His original name, Tutankhaten, means “Living Image of Aten”, while Tutankhamun means “Living Image of Amun”.

Although there is some speculation that Tutankhamun was assassinated, the consensus is that his death was accidental. A CT scan taken in 2005 shows that he had suffered a left leg fracture shortly before his death, and that the leg had become infected. DNA analysis conducted in 2010 showed the presence of malaria in his system.

A recent “Secrets of the Dead” program on PBS entitled “Ultimate Tut” advanced a much different version of Tut’s death. The program was aired July 10 2013. The program, using a variety of simulations, physical tests (including chemical and electronic microscopic tests on actual samples of Tut’s mummified flesh), and re-analyses of Carter’s and some post Tut scrolls, determined that Tut died in battle by being hit while on his knees by a chariot traveling at full speed. The program suggests that Tut was embalmed without his heart because it was smashed when Tut was hit by the chariot.

POLITICAL AND RELIGIOUS POWER MOVES BACK TO THEBES AND AMEN/SET POLYTHEISTS

AY IS NOW THE PHAROANIC POWER

AMEN IS NOW THE GODLY POWER

Ay was the penultimate Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt’s 18th dynasty. He held the throne of Egypt for a brief four-year period (probably 1323–1319 BC or 1327–1323 BC, depending on which chronology is followed), although he was a close advisor to two and perhaps three of the pharaohs who ruled before him and was said to be the power behind the throne during Tutankhamun’s reign. Ay’s prenomen or royal name—Kheperkheperure—means “Everlasting are the Manifestations of Ra” while his birth name Ay it-netjer reads as ‘Ay, Father of the God.

THE AMEN RULE AND INFLUENCE CONTINUES UNDER AY

Ay is usually believed to be a native Egyptian from Akhmim. During his short reign, he built a rock cut chapel in Akhmim and dedicated it to the local deity there: Min. He may have been the son of Yuya, who served as a member of the priesthood of Min(Amen as male fertility) at Akhmin as well as superintendent of herds in this city, and wife Tjuyu.

Yuya (sometimes Iouiya, also known as Yaa, Ya, Yiya, Yayi, Yu, Yuyu, Yaya, Yiay, Yia, and Yuy) was a powerful Egyptian courtier during the eighteenth dynasty of Ancient Egypt (circa 1390 BC).Yuya was an influential nobleman at the royal court of Amenhotep III who was given the rare privilege of having a tomb built for his use in the royal Valley of the Kings presumably because he was the father of Tiye, Amenhotep’s chief Queen

He was married to Tjuyu, an Egyptian noblewoman associated with the royal family, who held high offices in the governmental and religious hierarchies.Their daughter, Tiye, became the Great Royal Wife of Amenhotep III.They also may have been the parents of Ay.

Yuya and Tjuyu also are known to have had a son named Anen, who carried the titles Chancellor of Lower Egypt, Second Prophet of Amun, sm-priest of Heliopolis, and Divine Father

http://www.lind.org.zw/history/egyptiansite/Yuyu.htm

Akhmim was known in Ancient Egypt as Ipu, Apu or Khent-min. It was the capital of the ninth (Chemmite) nome of Upper Egypt. The city is a suggested hometown for Yuya, the official of Tuthmosis IV and Amenhotep III. The ithyphallic Min (whom the Greeks identified with Pan) was worshipped here as “the strong Horus.”(Set Horus) Herodotus mentions the temple and asserts that Chemmis was remarkable for the celebration of games in honor of that hero, after the manner of the Greeks, at which prizes were given; as a matter of fact some representations are known of Nubians and people of Punt (southern coastal Sudan and the Eritrean coast) clambering up poles before the god Min. Min was especially a god of the desert routes on the east of Egypt, and the trading tribes are likely to have gathered to his festivals for business and pleasure

Prior to his death, Ay designated Nakhtmin to succeed him as pharaoh. However, Ay’s plan for his succession went awry since Horemheb became the last king of Egypt’s 18th Dynasty instead of Nakhtmin. The fact that Nakhtmin was Ay’s intended heir is strongly implied by an inscription carved on a dyad funerary statue of Nakhtmin and his spouse which was presumably made during Ay’s reign. Nakhtmin is clearly given the titles rpat (Crown Prince) and zA nzw (King’s Son). The only conclusion which can be drawn here is that Nakhtmin was either a son or an adopted son of Ay and that Ay was grooming Nakhtmin for the royal succession instead of Horemheb.

HOREMHEB CREATES A DYNASTY DEDICATED TO SET……THE MILITARY FAMILY RAMOSES FROM AVAIRS

A Symposium on Haremhab: General and King of Egypt

Horemheb’s birth name and epithet was Horemheb Meryamun, meaning “Horus is in Jubilation, Beloved of Amun”. Believed to be a commoner, he rose to power under Tutankhamun, and “With energy and dedication, he sought to return the cult of Amun to its pre-Akhenaten glory, and to reverse the corruption and power imbalances brought about by Akhenaten’s over centralization of powers.” -Virtual-Egyptian museum.

Horemheb played an interesting role in Egypt’s history. Not only did he do much to clean up the mess Akhenaten had made, he initiated the nineteenth dynasty when he appointed Paramessu to be prince regent and vizier who then assumed the throne as Ramesses I when Horemheb died.

“The role assigned to Paramessu once more reveals Horemheb’s preoccupation with the military situation in Egypt’s northern terrorities. Paramessu’s family came from Avaris, the former capitol of the Hyksos, and the role of its local god Seth, who had retained strong connections with that of Horus of Hutnesu in Horemheb’s career. In the light of this it is interesting to observe that Horemheb built a temple for Seth at Avaris. The Ramessid royal family considered the god Seth to be their royal ancestor, and a fragment of an obelisk (originally from Heliopolis), recently discovered on the seabed off the coast of Alexandria, shows Sety I as a sphinx with the head of the Seth-animal offering to Ra-Atum.” (_The Oxford History of Ancient Egypt_, edited by Ian Shaw, page 294)

Its noted that the Ramessides (the family of Ramses II), were devoted to Seth, with several bearing the name Seti, which means “beloved of Seth”. She concluded that the Ramessides believed themselves to be divine descendants of Seth, with their red hair as proof of their lineage; they may even have used this peculiar physical feature to propel themselves out of obscurity, and onto the throne of the Pharaohs.

Seti I horned as Pharoah

Seti I (also called Sethos I after the Greeks) was a Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt (Nineteenth dynasty of Egypt), the son of Ramesses I and Queen Sitre, and the father of Ramesses II. As with all dates in Ancient Egypt, the actual dates of his reign are unclear, and various historians claim different dates, with 1294 BC – 1279 BC and 1290 BC to 1279 BC being the most commonly used by scholars today

The name Seti means “of Set”, which indicates that he was consecrated to the god Set(commonly “Seth”).

Set and Horus Blessing the Pharaoh

“In a possible reference to a baptismal ceremony associated with his accession, the king is described as ‘the third at his accession.’ As a third, he would be between Horus and Seth (later Horus and Thoth), who would be standing on either side of him and would pour baptismal water over him. The position of the king between the dual gods, receiving blessings from both, symbolizes his union of their opposing natures within himself.”Shamanic Wisdom in the Pyramid Texts_ by Jeremy Naydler(pages 305-306)

The baptismal water he refers to shows in a much later relief “Horus and Thoth purifying Ptolemy XIII at the temple of Kom Ombo”.The deities have their hands at the pharoah’s crown

Seti I, who reigned not very long after Horemheb, has scenes in which he is being purified thusly by Set and Horus.

Merenptah, who ruled directly after Ramesses II, who has a blessing scene at Abu Simbel has a Heb-Sed festival lintel as well:

While not regarded as a dynasty per se, the High Priests of Amun at Thebes were nevertheless of such power and influence that they were effectively the rulers of Upper Egypt from 1080 to c.943 BC, after this period their influence declined.By the time Herihor was proclaimed as the first ruling High Priest of Amun in 1080 BC–in the 19th Year of Ramesses XI–the Amun priesthood exercised an effective stranglehold on Egypt’s economy. The Amun priests owned two-thirds of all the temple lands in Egypt and 90 percent of her ships plus many other resources. Consequently, the Amun priests were, in reality, as powerful as Pharaoh, if not more. One of the sons of the High Priest Pinedjem I would eventually assume the throne and rule Egypt for almost half-a-decade as pharaoh Psusennes I while the Theban High Priest Psusennes III would take the throne as king Psusennes II–the final ruler of the 21st Dynasty.

The religious complex of Karnak, in Luxor, is the largest ancient religious site in the world. It was the Vatican of its day – and four millennia after its heydays, continues to dwarf all other religious buildings.

The word “amen” is at the end of many Christian prayers. Yet few Christians are aware that the word itself is a direct reference to the Egyptian god Amen, or Amun, the chief deity of Karnak.

In Egyptian mythology, the Ogdoad (Greek “ογδοάς”, the eightfold) were eight deities worshipped in Hermopolis during what is called the Old Kingdom, the third through sixth dynasties, dated between 2686 to 2134 BC.

The eight deities were arranged in four female-male pairs: Naunet and Nu, Amaunet and Amun, Kauket and Kuk, Hauhet and Huh. The females were associated with snakes and the males were associated with frogs. Apart from their gender, there was little to distinguish the female goddess from the male god in a pair; indeed, the names of the females are merely the female forms of the male name and vice versa. Essentially, each pair represents the female and male aspect of one of four concepts, namely the primordial waters (Naunet and Nu), air or invisibility (Amunet and Amun), darkness (Kauket and Kuk), and eternity or infinite space (Hauhet and Huh)

The concept of an Ogdoad also appears in Gnostic systems of the early Christian era, and was further developed by the theologian Valentinus (ca. 160 AD).

SET VERSES RA

MERNEPTAH c.1213–1203BC A PHAROAH OF RA

PHARONIC POWER RULES FROM THE NILE DELTA

Merneptah (or Merenptah) was the fourth ruler of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. He ruled Egypt for almost ten years between late July or early August 1213 and May 2, 1203 BC, according to contemporary historical records.[2] He was the thirteenth son of Ramesses II. His throne name was Ba-en-re Mery-netjeru, which means “The Soul of Ra, Beloved of the Gods”

Merneptah was already an elderly man in his late 60s if not early 70s when he assumed the throne. Merneptah moved the administrative center of Egypt from Piramesse (Pi-Ramesses), his father’s capital, back to Memphis, where he constructed a royal palace next to the temple of Ptah

Memphis (Arabic: منف‎; Greek: Μέμφις) was the ancient capital of Aneb-Hetch, the first nome of Lower Egypt. Its ruins are located near the town of Mit Rahina, south of Cairo.

According to legend related by Manetho, the city was founded by the pharaoh Menes around 3000 BC. Capital of Egypt during the Old Kingdom, it remained an important city throughout ancient Mediterranean history. It occupied a strategic position at the mouth of the Nile delta, and was home to feverish activity.During its golden age, Memphis thrived as a regional centre for commerce, trade, and religion.

Memphis was believed to be under the protection of the god Ptah, the patron of craftsmen. Its great temple, Hut-ka-Ptah (meaning “Enclosure of the ka of Ptah”), was one of the most prominent structures in the city. The name of this temple, rendered in Greek as Aί γυ πτoς (Ai-gy-ptos) by the historian Manetho, is believed to be the etymological origin of the modern English name Egypt.

With the invasion of the Hyksos, and their rise to power ca. 1650 BC, the city of Memphis came under siege. Following its capture, many monuments and statues of the ancient capital and were dismantled, looted or damaged by the Hyksos kings, who later carried them to adorn their new capital at Avaris.Evidence of royal propaganda has been uncovered and attributed to the Theban kings of the 17th dynasty, who initiated the reconquest of the kingdom .

There is evidence that, under Rameses II, the city developed new importance in the political sphere through its proximity to the new capital Pi-Rameses. The pharaoh devoted many monuments in Memphis and adorned them with colossal symbols of glory. Merneptah, his successor, constructed a palace and developed the southeast wall of the temple of Ptah. For the early part of the 19th dynasty, Memphis received the privileges of royal attention, and it is this dynasty that is most evident among the ruins of the city today.

Seti II (or Sethos II), was the fifth ruler of the Nineteenth dynasty of Egypt and reigned from c. 1200 BC to 1194 BC.His throne name, Userkheperure Setepenre, means “Powerful are the manifestations of Re, the chosen one of Re.’He was the son of Merneptah and Isetnofret II and sat on the throne during a period known for dynastic intrigue and short reigns, and his rule was no different. Seti II had to deal with many serious plots, most significantly being the accession of a rival king named Amenmesse, possibly a half brother, who seized control over Thebes and Nubia in Upper Egypt during his second to fourth regnal years.

Others consider him to be one of the innumerable sons of Ramesses II. Very little is known about this king, who ruled Egypt for only three to four years. Various Egyptologists date his reign between 1202 BC–1199 BC or 1203 BC–1200 BC with others giving an accession date of 1200 BC but a difference of 1 or 2 years is unimportant.

Amenmesse means “born of or fashioned by Amun” in Egyptian. Additionally, his nomen can be found with the epithet Heqa-waset, which means “Ruler of Thebes”.

SETI II AMEN/RA EGYPTIAN MILITARY FACTION

Seti (mer-en-ptah) was this king’s birth name, meaning “He of the god Seti, Beloved of Ptah”. He is also sometimes referred to by his Greek name, Sethos II. His throne name was User-kheperu-re Setep-en-re, meaning “Powerful are the Manifestations of Re, Chosen of Re”.

There has also been a suggestion that the story of the “Tale of Two Brothers”, first attested during the reign of Seti II, may contain a veiled reference to the struggle between Amenmesse and Seti II

The cartouches of Seti II’s tomb in Upper Egypt were deliberately erased and then repainted, suggesting that Seti’s rule in Upper Egypt was temporarily interrupted by agents of his half-brother. Confusion generally clouds Amenmesse’s reign and location within the Egyptian 19th Dynasty. However, an increasing number of Egyptologists today such as Rolf Krauss and Aidan Dodson maintain that Seti II was in fact the immediate successor of Merneptah “without any intervening rule by Amenmesse.” Under this scenario, Amenmesse did not succeed Merneptah on the throne of Egypt and was rather a rival king who usurped power sometime during Years 2 to 4 of Seti II’s reign in Upper Egypt and Nubia where his authority is monumentally attested. Amenmesse was documented in power at Thebes during his third and fourth year (and perhaps earlier in Nubia) where Seti II’s Year 3 and Year 4 are noticeably unaccounted for. The treatment of Amenmesse as a rival king also best explains the pattern of destruction to Seti II’s tomb which was initially ransacked and later restored again by Seti II’s officials. This implies that the respective reigns of Amenmesse and Seti II were parallel to one another; Seti II must have initially controlled Thebes in his first and second years during which time his tomb was excavated and partly decorated. Then Seti was ousted from power in Upper Egypt by Amenmesse whose agents desecrated Seti II’s tomb. Seti would finally defeat his rival Amenmesse and return to Thebes in triumph whereupon he ordered the restoration of his damaged tomb.

During the second to fourth years of Amenmesse/Seti II’s parallel reigns, Amenmesse gained the upper hand and seized control over Upper Egypt and Nubia; he ordered Seti II’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings to be vandalised. Prior to his fifth year, however, Amenmesse was finally defeated by his rival, Seti II who was the legitimate successor to the throne since he was Merneptah’s son. Seti II, in turn, launched a damnatio memoriae campaign against all inscriptions and monuments belonging to both Amenmesse and this king’s chief supporters in Thebes and Nubia which included a certain Khaemter, a former Viceroy of Kush, who had served as Amenmesse’s Vizier. Seti II’s agents completely erased both scenes and texts from KV10, the royal tomb of Amenmesse.

AMENMESSES THEBEN AMEN/MIN PLOT FAILS

There is confusion about the events surrounding Amenmesses death. His mummy was not amongst those found in the cache at Deir el Bahri, and from the destruction of his tomb in the Valley of the Kings, it is assumed that Seti II took revenge upon his usurping half-brother.

A number of officials associated with Amenmesse were also attacked or replaced, chief among them being the Theban High Priest of Amun, Roma-Roy, and Kha-em-ter, a former viceroy of Kush, who may have supported Amenmesse’s usurpation

Seti II’s reign was apparently relatively peaceful. We have no evidence of foreign policy during his reign, though there was probably activity at the mines around Serabit el-Khadim in the Sinai. He made a number of claims regarding building projects, though there is little indication that his words translate into physical accomplishments. We find surviving trances of his work at Hermopolis, where he apparently finished some decorations in his grandfather’s, Ramesses II, temple. He also did some work in Karnak, where he was probably responsible for a new way station of the sacred barks in the First Court of the temple of Amun-Re, and he probably also completed some work in the temple of Mut.

SETI II DIES MYSTERIOUSLY IN HIS 30’S AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS HEALTH AND POWER

PROBABLY AT THE HANDS OF CHANCELLOR BAY

HIS EGYPTIAN “HERO OF RA” CHOSEN HEIR IS ALREADY DEAD

AN AMEN/MIN CANAANITE PUPPET USURPER IS PUT IN PLACE

BY THE CANAANITE HIGH PRIEST OF AMEN/MIN CHANCELLOR BAY

His chief wife and consort was Twosret who was the mother of crown prince Seti-Merenptah who died before his father. Seti II was succeeded by Siptah ,whos mother was the concubine Sutailja who had come from Canaan.

According to an inscribed ostraca document from the Deir el-Medina worker’s community, Seti II’s death was announced to the workmen by “The [Chief of] police Nakht-min” on Year 6, I Peret 19 of Seti II’s reign. Since it would have taken time for the news of Seti II’s death to reach Thebes from the capital city of Pi-Ramesses in Lower Egypt, the date of I Peret 19 only marks the day the news of the king’s death reached Deir el-Medina

THE PLACING OF BAY WAS PROBABLY A PEACE SETTLEMENT BETWEEN THE 2 FACTIONS

CHANCELLOR BAY IS THE PRIESTS OF AMENS MAN IN PHAROAHS CAMP

Seti II promoted Chancellor Bay to become his most important state official and built 3 tombs – KV13, KV14, and KV15 – for himself, his Senior Queen Twosret and Bay in the Valley of the Kings. This was an unprecedented act on his part for Bay, who was of Syrian descent and was not connected by marriage or blood ties to the royal family

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seti_II

CHANCELLOR BAY

THE RENEGADE PRIEST OF HELIOPOLIS

AND THE PRIESTS OF AMENS AGENT IN PHAROAHS CAMP

Bay is called a Syrian (Hurru = Hurrian or Harran-born) Asiatic. While his precise background is unknown except for his Syrian origins, Bay is first attested as scribe and butler, an important position in Egypt, during the reign of Seti II.

Indeed, Bay’s first official position may have been that of a priest in the temple at Heliopolis, where a small statue of him has been found.

Bay would carry the titles Chancellor of Lower Egypt, Second Prophet of Amun, sm-priest of Heliopolis, and Divine Father

By the time of the death of Seti II, Bay had risen to the post of Chancellor and played the role of “kingmaker.”

Bay’s status at Siptah’s court was so great that on several of the young king’s monuments, “the chancellor is shown in scenes with the pharaoh on the same scale as the latter, the earliest occasion in which a commoner was depicted in such a manner.”

His tomb was clearly constructed as part of a triad of tombs, including that of the Pharaoh Siptah and Queen Twosret. This was an unprecedented privilege, the likes of which were rarely accorded to a commoner, let alone a foreigner. It is possible that Bay was accorded this tomb because he was a relation of Siptah’s mother, a Canaanite concubine of Seti II, or perhaps even of Amenmesse. His tomb was later usurped under the Twentieth Dynasty by prince Mentuherkhepshef, a son of Ramesses IX.

Papyrus Harris I portrays his tenure in office as a time when Egypt was in chaos and temple offerings were denied to the gods.After the death of Twosret, Egypt seems to have fallen into anarchy, with many temples being looted by Asiatic followers of Bay and Irsa!!!!!

MOSES

MOSES THE HIGH PRIEST OF SET/AMEN AND A CHANCELLOR OF LOWER EGYPT AND DIVINE FATHER C.1200BC

ANOTHER RENEGADE PRIEST OF HELIOPOLIS

the chief foreman of Deir el-Medina, a certain Neferhotep, was killed in the reign of king Amenmesse on the orders of a certain ‘Msy’ who was either Amenmesse himself or one of this king’s agents, according to Papyrus Salt 124 Neferhotep, one of the two chief workmen of the Deir el Medina necropolis, had been replaced by Paneb, his troublesome son-in-law. Many crimes were alleged by Neferhotep’s brother—Amennakhte—against Paneb in a violently worded indictment preserved in papyrus now in the British Museum. If Amennakhte’s testimony can be trusted, Paneb had allegedly stolen stone from the tomb of Seti II while still working on its completion—for the embellishment of his own tomb—besides purloining or damaging other property belonging to that monarch. Paneb was also accused of trying to kill Neferhotep, his adopted father-in-law, despite being educated by the latter and after the murder of Neferhotep by ‘the enemy,’ Paneb had reportedly bribed the Vizier Pra’emhab in order to usurp his father’s office. Whatever the truth of these accusations, it is clear that Thebes was going through very troubled times. There are references elsewhere to a ‘war’ that had occurred during these years, but it is obscure to what this word alludes, perhaps to no more than internal disturbances and discontent. Neferhotep had complained of Paneb’s attacks on himself to the vizier Amenmose, presumably a predecessor of Pra’emhab, whereupon Amenmose had punished Paneb. This trouble-maker had then brought a complaint before ‘Mose’ (i.e.: ‘Msy’), who then acted to remove Pra’emhab from his office. Evidently this ‘Mose’ must have been a person of the highest importance, perhaps the king Amenmesse himself or a senior ally of the king.

Moses most probably carried the titles Chancellor of Lower Egypt, Second Prophet of Amun, sm-priest of Heliopolis, and Divine Father

Rolf Krauss finds that there are a number of parallels between the story of Amenmesse and biblical story of Moses in Egypt.

THE SERVANTS OF SET MAAT

Deir el-Medina (Arabic: دير المدينة‎)which in Arabic means “monastery of the city”,is an ancient Egyptian village which was home to the artisans who worked on the tombs in the Valley of the Kings during the 18th to 20th dynasties of the New Kingdom period (ca. 1550–1080 BC) The settlement’s ancient name was “Set Maat” (translated as “The Place of Truth”), and the workmen who lived there were called “Servants in the Place of Truth

The site is located on the west bank of the Nile, across the river from modern-day Luxor. The village is laid out in a small natural amphitheatre, within easy walking distance of the Valley of the Kings to the north, funerary temples to the east and south-east, with the Valley of the Queens to the west. The village may have been built apart from the wider population in order to preserve secrecy in view of sensitive nature of the work carried out in the tombs, and was administered directly by the vizier.

http://www.touregypt.net/featurestories/medina.htm

Prayers were made and dedicated to a particular deity as votive offerings, similar in style to the penitential psalms in the Hebrew scriptures that express remorse and thanksgiving for mercy.Stelae record sorrow for human error and humbly invoke a god for forgiveness and mercy.

Amun(Amen) was considered a special patron of the poor and one who was merciful to the penitent.

A stelae records:

[Amen] who comes at the voice of the poor in distress, who gives breath to him who is wretched..You are Amen(Amun), the Lord of the silent, who comes at the voice of the poor, when I call to you in my distress You come and rescue me…Though the servant was disposed to do evil, the Lord is disposed to forgive

Dream interpretation, a gift which Hebrew scriptures also attribute to Joseph, was very common. A book of dreams was found in Scribe Kenhirkhopeshef’s library which was old even in his time. This book was used to interpret various types of dreams.

The youthful Moses becomes a murderer and fugitive from justice (Exodus 2.11,15).
Moses flees to Arabia where he marries the daughter of a Midianite priest and lives as a shepherd. His father-in-law is ‘Reuel’ (Exodus 2.18) or ‘Jethro’ (Exodus 3.1,4.18) or ‘Hobab’ (Judges 4.11) – take your pick.
After 40 years in Midian, Moses returns to Egypt to make his famous demand of pharaoh to “let go” (Exodus 5.1) the people he has lived without for 80 years (Exodus 7.7).
According to the bible Ten plagues later and Egypt had lost its labour force and its army (Exodus 14.28). Moses, an octogenarian, now begins 40 years of wandering.
In reality, Egypt reached new heights of imperial splendour and prosperity during the New Kingdom (18th – 19th dynasties). Tutmosis III campaigned beyond the Euphrates and reached the Fourth Cataract on the Nile; Rameses II halted the advance of the Hittites in Syria and built more temples and monuments than anyone.
Perhaps those Hebrews hadn’t pulled their weight after all!

MEANWHILE CHANCELLOR BAY PLACES A CHILD USURPER ON THE THRONE ,

THE RED HEADED PHAROAH SIPTAH

AND SON OF AMENMESSE

IT SEEMS BAY IS WORKING FOR THE PRIESTS OF AMEN/MIN AND ENSURING A COMPLIENT SET PHARONIC LINEAGE

PHAROAH SIPTAH c.1197–1191BC

THE CHILD PUPPET OF THE PRIEST OF AMEN

SIPTAH ,SON OF AMENMESSE

It is possible that Siptah, the Pharaoh who succeeded Seti II was the son of Amenmesse and not of Seti II. A statue of Siptah in Munich shows the Pharaoh seated in the lap of another, clearly his father. The statue of the father, however, has been completely destroyed. Dodson writes:

“The only ruler of the period who could have promoted such destruction was Amenmesse, and likewise he is the only king whose offspring required such explicit promotion. The destruction of this figure is likely to have closely followed the fall of Bay or the death of Siptah himself, when any short-lived rehabilitation of Amenmesse will have ended”.

Siptah

Siptah

Akhenre Setepenre Siptah or Merenptah Siptah was the penultimate ruler of the 19th Dynasty.

He was not the crown prince, but succeeded to the throne as a child after the death of Seti II. His accession date occurred on I Peret day 2 around the month of December

The identity of his father is currently unknown; some Egyptologists speculate it may have been Amenmesse rather than Seti II since both Siptah and Amenmesse spent their youth in Chemmis and both are specifically excluded from Ramesses III’s Medinet Habu procession of statues of ancestral kings unlike Merneptah or Seti. This suggests that Amenmesse and Siptah were inter-related in such a way that they were “regarded as illegitimate rulers and that therefore they were probably father and son.”

Originally a scribe to Seti II,Chancellor Bay publicly boasts that he was instrumental in installing Siptah on the throne in several inscriptions including an Aswan stela set up by Seti, the Viceroy of Kush and at Gebel el-Silsila. A key graffito located at the entrance to the Speos of Horemheb at Gebel el-Silsila depicts Bay standing in a pose of adoration directly behind Siptah, who is making an offering to Amun; a following inscription in the graffito reads:

“the spirit of the Great Superintendent of the Seal of the entire land, who established the King [Siptah] in the place of his father; beloved of his lord, Bay.”

Images of Bay exist showing him standing behind the throne of Pharaoh Siptah, an unusual position for a commoner, and also opposite Twosret on the doorjamb of the Amada temple where he faces the queen. Tablets unearthed by excavators at Ras Shamra prove Ugarit was communicating with Bay of Egypt (RS 86.2230), who described himself the “head of the bodyguard of the Great King, the King of Egypt”.

BAY IS EXECUTED AS A TRAITOR c.1193BC

Year 5 III Shemu the 27th. On this day, the scribe of the tomb Paser came announcing ‘Pharaoh, life, prosperity, and health!, has killed the great enemy Bay’.

This date accords well with Bay’s last known public appearance in Year 4 of Siptah. The ostraca’s information was essentially a royal order for the workmen to stop all further work on Bay’s tomb since the latter had now been deemed a traitor to the state

After his death, Twosret simply assumed his Regnal Years and ruled Egypt as a queen for a year or two at the most. Siptah was buried in the Valley of the Kings, in tomb KV47, but his mummy was not found there. In 1898, it was discovered along with 18 others in a mummy cache within the (KV35) tomb of Amenhotep II.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Siptah

Queen Twosret (Tawosret, Tausret) was the last known ruler and the final Pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty. She is recorded in Manetho’s Epitome as a certain Thuoris, who in Homer is called Polybus, husband of Alcandara, and in whose time Troy was taken. She was said to have ruled Egypt for seven years, but this figure included the nearly six-year reign of Siptah, her predecessor

Queen Twosret is thought to have been a daughter of Merenptah,. She was thought to be the second royal wife of Seti II. There are no known children for Twosret and Seti II, unless KV56 represents the burial of their daughter

After her husband’s death, she became first regent to Seti’s heir Siptah

Twosret officially assumed the throne for herself, as the “Daughter of Re, Lady of Ta-merit, Twosret of Mut”, and assumed the role of a Pharaoh.

CANAANITE AMEN/MIN FACTION FOLLOWERS OF AMENMESSE, BAY, MOSES AND IRSA RIOT AND LOOT TEMPLES

After the death of Twosret, Egypt seems to have fallen into anarchy, with many temples being looted by Asiatic followers of Bay and Irsa!!!!!

Twosret’s reign ended in a civil war which is documented in the Elephantine stela of her successor Setnakhte who became the founder of the Twentieth dynasty.

PHARAOH SETNAKHTE c.1189–1186BC

SET COMES TO THE THRONE VIA ANOTHER CIVIL WAR

Setnakhte and his son Ramesses III described the late 19th dynasty as a time of chaos. Setnakhte usurped the joint KV14 tomb of Seti II and Twosret but reburied Seti II in tomb KV15, while deliberately replastering and redrawing all images of Twosret in tomb KV14 with those of himself. Setnakhte’s decisions here demonstrate his dislike and presumably hatred for Twosret since he chose to reinter Seti II but not Twosret.

Setnakhte’s son, Ramesses III, later excluded Twosret and even Siptah of the 19th dynasty from his Medinet Habu list of Egyptian kings thereby delegitimizing them in the eyes of the citizenry. It appears more likely that Setnakhte overthrew Twosret from power in a civil war.

Setnakht Horned as Pharoah

Userkhaure-setepenre Setnakhte (or Setnakht) “Victorious is Set, Beloved of Amun Re” was the first Pharaoh (1189 BC–1186 BC) of the Twentieth Dynasty of the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt and the father of Ramesses III.

Setnakhte was not the son, brother or a direct descendant of the previous 2 pharaohs: either Twosret or Merneptah Siptah, nor that of Siptah’s predecessor Seti II, whom Setnakht formally considered the last legitimate ruler. It is possible that he was an usurper who seized the throne during a time of crisis and political unrest, or he could have been a member of a minor line of the Ramesside royal family who emerged as Pharaoh

harris papyrus

harris papyrus

The beginning of the Great Harris Papyrus or Papyrus Harris I, which documents the reign of Ramesses III, provides some details about Setnakhte’s rise to power. An excerpt of James Henry Breasted’s 1906 translation of this document is provided below

“He was Khepri-Set, when he is enraged; he set in order the entire land which had been rebellious; he slew the rebels who were in the land of Egypt; he cleansed the great throne of Egypt; he was ruler of the Two Lands, on the throne of Atum. He gave ready faces to those who had been turned away. Every man knew his brother who had been walled in. He established the temples in possession of divine offerings, to offer to the gods according to their customary stipulations.”

“from the second (?) year of Pharaoh Sethnakht, founder of the XXth Dynasty …, dating in absolute chronology from the first or second decade of the 12th century B.C.E. …, the political situation in Egypt … was marred by the enigmatic intervention of Asiatics … who were approached and bribed by a faction of Egyptians … who revolted against another faction … who remained loyal to Sethnakht.”

Sethnakht overcame the plot and drove the Asiatics from Egypt.

THERE ARE MANY BIBLICAL SIMILARITIES

Setnakhte’s Elephantine stela touches on this chaotic period and refers explicitly to the expulsion of certain Asiatics, who fled Egypt, abandoning the gold which they looted from Egyptian temples behind. Setnakhte identified with the God Atum or Temu, and built a temple to this God at Per-Atum (Biblical Pithom)

The Papyrus Harris I also describes “the Syrian-Palestinian usurpation of Egypt” as well as the “desolate conditions” that held sway prior to Ramses III. According to the papyrus, the Asiatics were led by “someone called Irsa,” (Irsa-el?)

IRSA THE CANAANITE LOOTS EGYPT

“The land of Egypt was overthrown from without,(probably refering to Chancellor Bay,the canaanite, usurption) and every man was thrown out of his right; they had no “chief mouth” for many years formerly until other times. The land of Egypt was in the hands of chiefs and of rulers of towns; one slew his neighbour, great and small. Other times having come after it, with empty years, Irsa, a certain Syrian was with them as chief (wr). He set plundering their (i.e.: the people’s) possessions. They made gods like men, and no offerings were presented in the temples.

SETNAKHTE HERO OF RA ,SET IS STRONG

SAVES EGYPT AND BRINGS LIFE ,PROSPERITY AND HEALTH

“But when the gods inclined themselves to peace, to set the land in its rights according to its accustomed manner, they established their son, who came forth from their limbs, to be ruler, LPH, of every land, upon their great throne, Userkhaure-setepenre-meryamun, LPH, the son of Re, Setnakht-merire-meryamun, LPH.

LPH = ankh: “Life” wedja: “to be whole/intact”/”Endurance” (= “Prosperity”) seneb: “Health”

There is a strong resemblance between the items offered as bribes by the rebels to the Asiatics in the Levant and the items described in Exodus taken by the Israelites from the Egyptians:

“And it shall come to pass, that, when ye go, ye shall not go empty; but every woman shall ask of her neighbor, and of her that sojourneth in her house, jewels of silver, and jewels of gold, and raiment; and ye shall put them upon your sons, and upon your daughters; and ye shall spoil the Egyptians.”

SOME PRIESTS ARE INVOLVED

He says further, that “there were some of the learned priests that were polluted with the leprosy; but that still this Amenophis, the wise man and the prophet, was afraid that the gods would be angry at him and at the king, if there should appear to have been violence offered them; who also added this further, (out of his sagacity about futurities,) that certain people would come to the assistance of these polluted wretches, and would conquer Egypt, and keep it in their possession thirteen years; that, however, he durst not tell the king of these things, but that he left a writing behind him about all those matters, and then slew himself, which made the king disconsolate.”

Now this city, according to the ancient theology, was Typho’s city.

But when these men were gotten into it, and found the place fit for a revolt, they appointed themselves a ruler out of the priests of Heliopolis, whose name was Osarsiph, and they took their oaths that they would be obedient to him in all things. He then, in the first place, made this law for them, that they should neither worship the Egyptian gods, nor should abstain from any one of those sacred animals which they have in the highest esteem, but kill and destroy them all; that they should join themselves to nobody but to those that were of this confederacy.

WAR IS DELCARED AGAINST THE EGYPTIAN PHAROAH

When he had made such laws as these, and many more such as were mainly opposite to the customs of the Egyptians, he gave order that they should use the multitude of the hands they had in building walls about their City, and make themselves ready for a war with king Amenophis, while he did himself take into his friendship the other priests, and those that were polluted with them,

He also promised that he would, in the first place, bring them back to their ancient city and country Avaris, and provide a plentiful maintenance for their multitude; that he would protect them and fight for them as occasion should require, and would easily reduce the country under their dominion. These shepherds were all very glad of this message, and came away with alacrity all together, being in number two hundred thousand men; and in a little time they came to Avaris.

THE EGYPTIAN PHAROAH RETREATS TO SOUTHERN(UPPER) EGYPT

And now Amenophis the king of Egypt, upon his being informed of their invasion, was in great confusion, as calling to mind what Amenophis, the son of Papis, had foretold him; and, in the first place, he assembled the multitude of the Egyptians, and took counsel with their leaders, and sent for their sacred animals to him, especially for those that were principally worshipped in their temples, and gave a particular charge to the priests distinctly, that they should hide the images of their gods with the utmost care he also sent his son Sethos, who was also named Ramesses, from his father Rhampses, being but five years old, to a friend of his. He then passed on with the rest of the Egyptians, being three hundred thousand of the most warlike of them, against the enemy, who met them. Yet did he not join battle with them; but thinking that would be to fight against the gods, he returned back and came to Memphis, where he took Apis and the other sacred animals which he had sent for to him, and presently marched into Ethiopia, together with his whole army and multitude of Egyptians; for the king of Ethiopia was under an obligation to him, on which account he received him, and took care of all the multitude that was with him, while the country supplied all that was necessary for the food of the men. He also allotted cities and villages for this exile, that was to be from its beginning during those fatally determined thirteen years. Moreover, he pitched a camp for his Ethiopian army, as a guard to king Amenophis, upon the borders of Egypt. And this was the state of things in Ethiopia.

THE HYKSOS BRING BARABARISM AND SLAUGHTER TO NORTH EGYPT …AGAIN

But for the people of Jerusalem, when they came down together with the polluted Egyptians, they treated the men in such a barbarous manner, that those who saw how they subdued the forementioned country, and the horrid wickedness they were guilty of, thought it a most dreadful thing; for they did not only set the cities and villages on fire but were not satisfied till they had been guilty of sacrilege, and destroyed the images of the gods, and used them in roasting those sacred animals that used to be worshipped, and forced the priests and prophets to be the executioners and murderers of those animals, and then ejected them naked out of the country. It was also reported that the priest, who ordained their polity and their laws, was by birth of Heliopolis, and his name Osarsiph, from Osyris, who was the god of Heliopolis; but that when he was gone over to these people, his name was changed, and he was called Moses.”

This is what the Egyptians relate about the Jews, with much more, which I omit for the sake of brevity.

THE HYKSOS INVADERS ARE DRIVEN OUT OF EGYPT BY PHAROAH

But still Manetho goes on, that “after this, Amenophis returned back from Ethiopia with a great army, as did his son Rhampses with another army also, and that both of them joined battle with the shepherds and the polluted people, and beat them, and slew a great many of them, and pursued them to the bounds of Syria.”

…AND SO IS THE GOD SET!!

HE GETS REPLACED WITH THOTH

ANUBIS ,SET’S SON,IS RELACED BY OSIRIS

Clearly, Sethos was Seti I;

Rhampses, his son Ramses II.

Amenophis, whom Josephus insists was mythological, was Merneptah, the father of

Thermuthis/Tausret and whose victories in Palestine are commemorated on the Israel Stele; And

Sethos/Ramesses was Seti II.

Osarsiph must therefore have been the usurper Amenmesse, and what Manetho is claiming is no less than that Amenmesse was Moses.

Amenmesse simply seizes Egypt with the help of his Hyksos allies and drives Merneptah into exile in “Ethiopia,” the Cush of the Masoretic Text

Clearly, this does not agree with the biblical account, nor does it fit our revised chronology, but it does explain certain aspects of the political conditions that allowed Moses to pull off what he did a generation later. In the Egyptian political sphere, it demonstrates the ability of a priest to overthrow the government of Egypt.

THIS EVENT MUST BE A LATER RETELLING OF THE PHAROAH SEKNAKHTE EXPULSION OF THE ASIATIC/SEMITIC/HYKSOS SET WORSHIPPING USURPERS

IF WE JUST TAKE THE EVIDENCE AND LEAVE OUT THE RELIGIOUS FANTASY

THE STORY BECOMES VERY CLEAR

WHAT WE HAVE IS THE BIBLICAL EXODUS

MOSE IS (SET)MOSES AKA THE BIBLICAL MOSES

(SET)MOSES IS A HIGH PRIEST OF SET AND CHANCELLOR OF LOWER EGYPT

A CO-CONSPIRATOR WITH THE HIGH PRIESTS OF AMEN(MIN) ,RENEGADE PHAROAH AMENMESSE AND CHANCELOR BAY

WORKING FOR THE MALE FERTILITY SET WORSHIPPING FACTION OF THE PRIESTS OF AMEN

WHEN SETI II COMES TO THE THRONE A BARGIN IS MADE WITH HIS HALF BROTHER AMENMESSE

THE PRIESTS OF AMEN GET A SPY INTO A POSITION OF POWER, CHANCELLOR BAY

AMENMESSE NOW MAKES A BID TO BECOME PHAROAH

AMENMESSE TAKES CONTROL OF THE SOUTH ,USING HIS PREISTLY AMEN/MIN THEBEN FACTION

PHAROAH SETI II DEFEATS AMENMESSE WITH HELP FROM THE PREISTLY EGYPTIAN MILITARY AMEN-RA FACTION

BUT THANKS TO CHANCELOR BAY , SETI II DIES AT THE HEIGHT OF HIS POWER!!

A USURPER PUPPET CHILD PHAROAH OF AMEN IS PLACED ON THE THRONE, SIPTAH

SIPTAH IS ALSO THE SON OF AMENMESSE

BUT SHORTLY AFTER THAT COUP

BAY IS EXECUTED AS A TRAITOR

THE CHILD PHAROAH DIES AS WELL ,PROBABLY AT THE HANDS OF THE QUEEN OF RA PHAROAH TWOSRET

TWOSRET A QUEEN PHAROAH, DAUGHTER OF RA TAKES OVER

CHAOS BREAKS OUT IN EGYPT WITH THE FOLLOWERS OF IRSA/BAY/MOSES LOOTING TEMPLES

ANOTHER PHAROAH OF SET APPEARS SEKNAKHTE(EGYPTIAN MILITARY,SET AS HERO OF RA)

AND ANOTHER CIVIL WAR BREAKS OUT.

SEKNAHKTE WINS AND IS PHAROAH

IN THIS TIME OF DISCORD SETMOSES SEES HIS LAST CHANCE

SETMOSES AND HIS FOLLOWERS TAKE PI-RAMESS/AVAIRS AND WAIT FOR HABIRU/CANAANITE MERCENARIES TO JOIN THEM

BUT SEKNAHKTE HAS THE EGYPTIAN MILITARY BEHIND HIM

HE RUNS “SET”MOSES AND HIS “LEPER” FOLLOWERS AND HIS HABIRU MERCENARIES OUT OF EGYPT AND ALL THE WAY TO SYRIA

(SET)MOSES AND COMPANY OBVIOUSLY TRY TO CARRY OFF AS MUCH GOLD AS THEY CAN

(SET)MOSES AND HIS FOLLOWERS WOULD LIVE A BANDIT LIFE IN CANAAN FOR A GENERATION

AFTER THE DEATH OF MOSES THEY SEE THE BIRTH OF THE BAAL WORSHIPPING KINGDOM OF ISRAEL IN CANAAN

WHICH IS THE RESULT OF THE EXPULSION OF THE EGYPTIAN GOD SET INTO THE LAND OF CANAAN

THE REST ,AS THEY SAY ,…IS MYTHOLOGY

MEANWHILE IN EGYPT

THE PHAROAHS OF RA, BASED IN THE NILE DELTA NOW RULE EGYPT

RAMOSES III c.1186–1155BC

VICTIM OF AN AMEN/SET PLOT?

THE FINAL CHAPTER OF THE EXODUS

Usimare Ramesses III (“Powerful one of Ma’at and Ra, Beloved of Amun, Ra bore him, Ruler of Heliopolis”)

He was probably murdered by an assassin in a conspiracy led by one of his secondary wives and her minor son.The servant in charge of his food and drink were also among the listed conspirators, but there were also other conspirators who were called the snake and the lord of snakes. It was in Thebes where this great conspiracy was conjured, and performed.(Redford I-XXIV)

At this time, the dynastic rulers were based in the Nile Delta region, and the office of the Divine Adoratrice was a means to secure peaceful relations with the Theban area where the cult of Amun was centered. A number of the God’s Wives had mortuary shrines constructed on the west bank of the river, mostly alongside the Medinet-Habu of Ramesses III.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Divine_Adoratrice_of_Amun

The temple, some 150 m long, is of orthodox design, and resembles closely the nearby mortuary temple of Ramesses II (the Ramesseum). The temple precinct measures approximately 700 ft (210 m). by 1,000 ft (300 m) and contains more than 75,350 sq ft (7,000 m2) of decorated wall reliefs

Just inside the enclosure, to the south, are chapels of Amenirdis I, Shepenupet II and Nitiqret, all of whom had the title of Divine Adoratrice of Amun.

The title, God’s Wife of Amun, “referred to the myth of the divine birth of the king”. While the office theoretically, was sacred, it was essentially wielded as a political tool by the serving Egyptian pharaoh to ensure “royal authority over the Theban region and the powerful priesthood of Amun” there.

THE DIVINE ADORATRICE OF AMUN WAS THE HAND OF GOD

THIS WAS OBVIOUSLY A POLITICAL TOOL/BRIBE OF THE PHAORH AND HIS SPY IN THE HEART OF THEBES/KARNACK!

PHAROAH LITERALLY HAD KARNACK BY THE BALLS!

Ayad, Mariam, God’s Wife, God’s Servant: The God’s Wife of Amun (c. 740-525 BC). Routledge, 2009.

Toby Wilkinson, The Thames and Hudson Dictionary of Ancient Egypt, Thames & Hudson, 2005.

The title, God’s Wife of Amun, “referred to the myth of the divine birth of the king”. While the office theoretically, was sacred, it was essentially wielded as a political tool by the serving Egyptian pharaoh to ensure “royal authority over the Theban region and the powerful priesthood of Amun” there.

It is not certain whether the assassination plot succeeded. However, Ramesses III died in his 32nd year before the summaries of the sentences were composed, but the same year that the trial documents record the trial and execution of the conspirators.

Although it was long believed that Ramesses III’s body showed no obvious wounds, a recent examination of the mummy by a German forensic team, televised in the documentary Rameses on the Science Channel in 2011, showed excessive bandages around the neck. A subsequent CT scan that was done in Egypt by Ashraf Selim and Sahar Saleem, professors of Radiology in Cairo University, revealed that beneath the bandages was a deep knife wound across the throat, deep enough to reach the vertebrae. According to the documentary narrator, “It was a wound no one could have survived.”

In one respect the conspirators certainly failed. The crown passed to the king’s designated successor: Ramesses IV. Ramesses III may have been doubtful as to the latter’s chances of succeeding him, given that, in the Great Harris Papyrus, he implored Amun to ensure his son’s rights

RAMOSES III BUILDER OF SUN TEMPLES

The Great Harris Papyrus or Papyrus Harris I, which was commissioned by his son and chosen successor Ramesses IV, chronicles this king’s vast donations of land, gold statues and monumental construction to Egypt’s various temples at Piramesse, Heliopolis, Memphis, Athribis, Hermopolis, This, Abydos, Coptos, El Kab and other cities in Nubia and Syria. It also records that the king dispatched a trading expedition to the Land of Punt and quarried the copper mines of Timna in southern Canaan. Papyrus Harris I records some of Ramesses III activities:

“I sent my emissaries to the land of Atika, [ie: Timna] to the great copper mines which are there. Their ships carried them along and others went overland on their donkeys. It had not been heard of since the (time of any earlier) king. Their mines were found and (they) yielded copper which was loaded by tens of thousands into their ships, they being sent in their care to Egypt, and arriving safely.” (P. Harris I, 78, 1-4

MEANWHILE BACK IN THE LEVANT……….

THE EXODUS 2 TRAIL

ENSLAVED AND DIS-EMPOWERED SET WORSHIPPERS FLEE EGYPT

MENTIONS OF THE SECOND EXODUS

Apion (20s BC – c. 45 AD), Graeco-Egyptian grammarian, sophist and commentator on Homer, was born at the Siwa Oasis, and flourished in the first half of the 1st century AD, identifies a second exodus mentioned by Manetho when a renegade Egyptian priest called Osarseph led 80,000 “lepers” to rebel against Egypt at the end of the 19th Dynasty (12th century). Then Apion additionally combines these with the Biblical Exodus, even alleges that this heretic priest changed his name to Moses.

Baal, right arm raised. Bronze figurine, 14th-12th centuries, found in Ras Shamra (ancient Ugarit).

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLE

THE FLEEING ISRAELITES LEAVE EGYPT FROM AVAIRS,

THE HYKSOS CITY DEDICATED TO SET ,NOW REBUILT AS PI-RAMSES

IT APPEARS SET/BAAL BLESSES THE FLEEING ISRAELITES

According to the biblical account, the Israelites departed from (Pi-)Ramses in their exodus from Egypt (Exodus 12:37).

Later in Exodus, Balak meets with Balaam at Kirjath-huzoth, and they go to the high places of Baal,(SETH is associated with Baal) and offer sacrifices at seven altars, leading to Balaam being given a prophecy by God,the prophecy blesses Israel;(the habiru)

THIS ALSO FITS WITH THE SEKNAKHTE STELA ,HARRIS PAPYRUS AND MANTHEO AND APION DESCRIPTION

THESE ARE DEFINATELY POLYTHEISTIC SET WORSHIPPERS

THE BIBLE ALSO CLAIMS

ON THE WAY MOSES MEETS GOD(SET/BAAL)

THE NAME OF GOD IS GIVEN……BUT ITS NOT WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!!

Exodus 3:14 (New International Version)

14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am .This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ “

Another possibility according to the Complete Jewish Bible by author David H. Stern, proposes that the Tetragrammaton be pronounced letter for letter in Hebrew and that the name of God should be rendered by spelling out the four letters, “Yud He Vav He”, the meaning assumed to be “I am that I am” or “I am Who I am”, as revealed to Moses in the Torah

SO GOD”S NAME IS NOT YAHAWEH ,IT WAS HIS RESPONSE TO MOSES QUESTION,WHO ARE YOU?..

“I AM WHO I AM”

GOD’S NAME IS “SET”(SETH) AND YOUR ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO MENTION IT

only priests were allowed to utter his divine name

BUT IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE “I AM” WAS A NAME OF GOD GIVEN TO THE HEBREWS LATER BY THE PERSIANS

“I AM” IS A NAME OF SHIVA

“I AM BECOME DEATH” IS SHIVA THE DESTROYER

BUT THERE IS NO ARCHEOLOGICAL EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT A MASS EXODUS OR MOVEMENT OF PEOPLE OUT OF EGYPT OR IN THE SINAI AT ANY TIME!!!

WE KNOW THAT THE HYKSOS WHERE CHASED ALL THE WAY TO GAZA WHERE THEY WHERE DESTROYED AND THIER DESCENDANTS THE HABIRU WHERE BANDITS IN CANAAN AT THIS TIME

Map of the near east circa 1400 BCE

Map of the near east circa 1400 BCE

The Hittites were an ancient Anatolian(Indo-European) people who established an empire at Hattusa in north-central Anatolia around 1600 BC. This empire reached its height during the mid-14th century BC under Suppiluliuma I, when it encompassed an area that included most of Asia Minor as well as parts of the northern Levant and Upper Mesopotamia. After c. 1180 BC, the empire came to an end during the Bronze Age collapse, splintering into several independent “Neo-Hittite” city-states, some of which survived until the 8th century BC.

The Hittite language was a member of the Anatolian branch of the Indo-European language family. They referred to their native land as Hatti. The conventional name “Hittites” is due to their initial identification with the Biblical Hittites in 19th century archaeology.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hittites

The Mitanni (Hittite cuneiform KUR URUMi-ta-an-ni, also Mittani Mi-it-ta-ni) or Hanigalbat (Assyrian Hanigalbat, Khanigalbat cuneiform Ḫa-ni-gal-bat) was an Hurrian-speaking state in northern Syria and south-east Anatolia from ca. 1500 BC–1300 BC. Founded by an Indo-Aryan ruling class governing a predominately Hurrian population.

Some theonyms, proper names and other terminology of the Mitanni exhibit close similarities to Indo-Aryan, suggesting that an Indo-Aryan elite imposed itself over the Hurrian population in the course of the Indo-Aryan expansion.

In a treaty between the Hittites and the Mitanni, the deities Mitra, Varuna, Indra, and Nasatya (Ashvins) are invoked. Kikkuli’s horse training text includes technical terms such as aika (eka, one), tera (tri, three), panza (pancha, five), satta (sapta, seven), na (nava, nine), vartana (vartana, turn, round in the horse race). The numeral aika “one” is of particular importance because it places the superstrate in the vicinity of Indo-Aryan proper.

Paul Thieme, The ‘Aryan’ Gods of the Mitanni Treaties. JAOS 80, 1960, 301-17

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitanni

The Kassites were an ancient Near Eastern people who controlled Babylonia after the fall of the Old Babylonian Empire ca. 1531 BC and until ca. 1155 BC.Several Kassite leaders bore Indo-European names, and they seemed have had an Indo-European elite similar to the Mitanni.

DURING THE TIME OF RAMOSES II EGYPT RULED THE LEVANT

ANY FLEEING HYKSOS SLAVES OR PERSECUTED SET WORSHIPPER WOULD HAVE TO LIVE AN OUTLAW LIFE IN CANAAN

SO PREHAPS WHEN RAMOSES II LETS THE HYKSOS/HABIRU HAVE THIER “BIBLICAL” FESTIVAL TO “SET”(SETH)

SOME OF THEM RUN AWAY TO CANAAN ,TO JOIN THIER BANDIT BROTHERS

THIS WOULD BE SMALL GROUPS AND NO BIG LOSS TO PHAROAH,WOULD HE EVEN NOTICE?

MAYBE THEY EVEN FIND THE DESENDANTS OF EXODUS 1 WHO HAVE BECOME BANDITS IN CANAAN

WHICH IS PART OF THE NEW EGYPTIAN KINGDOM.

The New Kingdom, sometimes referred to as the Egyptian Empire, is the period in ancient Egyptian history between the 16th century BC and the 11th century BC, was Egypt’s most prosperous time and marked the zenith of its power.Possibly as a result of the foreign rule of the Hyksos during the Second Intermediate Period, the New Kingdom saw Egypt attempt to create a buffer between the Levant and Egypt, and attain its greatest territorial extent. It expanded far south into Nubia and held wide territories in the Near East. Egyptian armies fought Hittite armies for control of modern-day Syria. Pharoah Merneptah (or Merenptah) who was the fourth ruler of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Ancient Egypt. He was the thirteenth son of Ramesses II He ruled Egypt for almost ten years between late July or early August 1213 to May 2, 1203 BC His throne name was Ba-en-re Mery-netjeru, which means “The Soul of Ra, Beloved of the Gods”.

THESE EXODUS 1 DESCENDANTS AND ANY ESCAPED SLAVES GET WIPED OUT BY PHAROAH MERNEPTAH

c.1210BC ISRAEL GETS A MENTION FOR THE FIRST TIME…TO TELL US THEY ARE ALL DEAD!!!

It is conspicuous that no Egyptian records speaking of Israelites in Egypt have ever been found (because they where the hyksos before c1550BC and habiru afterwards)

From similarity of context and description, it is believed that the Egyptian `PR.W are equivalent to the Akkadian Habiru/Hapiru.

In his account of the conquest of Joppa, General Djehuty or Toth of pharaoh Thutmose III of Egypt (around 1440 BC) asks at some point that his horses be taken inside the city, lest they be stolen by a passing Apir.

On two stelae at Memphis and Karnak, Thutmose III’s son Amenhotep II boasts of having made 89,600 prisoners in his campaign in Canaan (around 1420 BC), including “127 princes and 179 nobles(?) of Retenu, 3600 Apiru, 15,200 Shasu, 36,600 Hurrians”, etc.

A stela from the reign of Seti I (around 1300 BC) tells that the pharaoh sent an expedition into the Levant, in response to an attack of “the apiru from Mount Yarmuta” upon a local town.

A list of goods bequeathed to several temples by Pharaoh Ramesses III (around 1160 BC) includes many serfs, Egyptian and foreign: 86,486 to Thebes (2607 foreigners), 12,364 to Heliopolis (2093 foreign), and 3079 to Memphis (205 foreign). The foreign serfs are described as “maryanu (soldiers), apiru, and people already settled in the temple estate”.

The laborers that Ramesses IV sent to the quarry of Wadi Hammamat in his third year included 5,000 soldiers, 2,000 men attached to the temples of Pharaoh as well as 800 Apiru. This is the last known reference to the Apiru in Egyptian documents.

BUT Merneptah has a stele mentioning Israel.The FIRST mention of ISRAEL.The line mentioning Israel is grouped together with three other defeated states in Canaan (Gezer, Yanoam and Ashkelon). :

merneptah stele

merneptah stele

The stela does make clear that “Israel” at this stage, refers to a people or tribal confederation, the Ancient Israelites, and not a kingdom or city state, since the determinative used is that for “foreign people”, not that for “country”

“Israel is wasted, bare of seed” or “Israel lies waste, its seed no longer exists”

It describes the reign of peace resulting from the victory

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merenptah

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Merneptah_Stele

IT SEEMS PHAROAH MERNEPTAH WAS OVER CONFIDENT

AS A SMALL KINGDOM OF ISRAEL WOULD APPEAR LATER IN CANAAN

SO THE HABIRU SURVIVORS LIVE IN THE DESERT IN HIDING OR ON THE RUN PROTECTED BY “SET” GOD OF THE DESERT.

STILL DREAMING OF EGYPTIAN THEMED EMPIRES AND PHARONIC POWER

BUT NOW JUST BANDITS ,OUTLAWS AND MERCENARIES LIVING IN THE HILLS OF CANAAN

BUT THE BANDIT IRSA,INVOLVED IN THE ATTEMPTED INVASION/COUP OF EGYPT WITH MOSES, MAYBE AN ISRAELITE SURVIVOR SEEKING REVENGE AND EVEN THE ROOT OF THE NAME IRSA-EL (ISRAEL)

THE LAND OF CANAAN

THE HISTORY OF CANAAN IS WELL DOCUMENTED AND RESEARCHED

BUT NOT ONE SIGN OF AN EMPIRE OF ISRAEL OR A KING DAVID OR A SOLOMON OR HIS TEMPLE

Prior to 3500 BCE (prehistory – Stone Age and Chalcolithic): hunter-gatherer societies slowly giving way to farming and herding societies, and early metal-working in the last thousand years;

3500–2000 (Early Bronze): invention of writing;

2000–1550 (Middle Bronze): city-states;

1550–1200 (Late Bronze): Egyptian hegemony;

THE PHAROAHS

1200–586 (Iron Age, divided into Iron Age I and II): village societies in Iron I giving way to kingdoms in Iron II.

After the Iron Age the periods are named after the various empires that ruled the region: Assyrian, Babylonian, Persian, Greek (Hellenistic) and Roman.

Canaanite religion is the name for the group of Ancient Semitic religions practiced by the Canaanites living in the ancient Levant from at least the early Bronze Age through the first centuries of the Common Era.

“Canaanite religion” is a controversial term because the Bible and some religious scholars distinguish between Canaanite and Israelite religions. However, biblical and archaeological data suggest that Israelite religion was one local variety of the larger, regional Canaanite religion.

Canaanite religion was strongly influenced by their more powerful and populous neighbors, and shows clear influence of Mesopotamian and Egyptian religious practices. Like other people of the Ancient Near East Canaanite religious beliefs were polytheistic, with families typically focusing worship on ancestral household gods and goddesses, the Elohim, while acknowledging the existence of other deities such as Baal and El. Kings also played an important religious role and in certain ceremonies, such as the sacred marriage of the New Year Festival may have been revered as gods. “At the center of Canaanite religion was royal concern for religious and political legitimacy and the imposition of a divinely ordained legal structure, as well as peasant emphasis on fertility of the crops, flocks, and humans.”

Egyptian and Mesopotamian religions had a growing impact upon Canaanite religion. For example during the Hyksos period, when chariot-mounted maryannu ruled in Egypt, at their capital city of Avaris, Baal became associated with the Egyptian god Set, and was considered identical – particularly with Set in his form as Sutekh. Iconographically henceforth Baal was shown wearing the crown of Lower Egypt and shown in the Egyptian-like stance, one foot set before the other. Similarly Athirat (known by her later Hebrew name Asherah), Athtart (known by her later Greek name Astarte), and Anath henceforth were portrayed wearing Hathor-like Egyptian wigs.

Canaanite civilization was a response to long periods of stable climate interrupted by short periods of climate change. During these periods, Canaanites profited from their intermediary position between the ancient civilizations of the Middle East — Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia (Sumer, Akkad, Assyria, Babylonia), the Hittites, and Minoan Crete — to become city states of merchant princes along the coast, with small kingdoms specializing in agricultural products in the interior. This polarity, between coastal towns and agrarian hinterland, was illustrated in Canaanite mythology by the struggle between the storm god, variously called Teshub (Hurrian) or Ba’al Hadad (Semitic Amorite/Aramean) and Ya’a, Yaw, Yahu or Yam, god of the sea and rivers. Early Canaanite civilization was characterized by small walled market towns, surrounded by peasant farmers growing a range of local horticultural products, along with commercial growing of olives, grapes for wine, and pistachios, surrounded by extensive grain cropping, predominantly wheat and barley.

THE LAND OF CANNAN

RULED BY EGYPT ,RAIDED BY HABIRU BANDITS

The Canaanites were organized into loose confederations of city-states, virtually all of which were under Egyptian domination from around 1500 to 1200 BCE. It should be noted that many of the names of king/governors of the Canaanite kingdoms are Indo-European rather than Semitic, and it is likely that many of these dynasts were Hurrian or Hittite mercenaries in the service of the Pharaohs rather than native Canaanites, or at least came from families that had adopted Hurrian or Hittite culture. Some archeologists and historians believe that some of the early Israelite tribes were actually Canaanite in origin.

As an interesting aside – in the Bible (Gen. 10) eleven Canaanite “tribes” are mentioned: the Sidonians, Arvadites (both Phoenician people), Hethites, Jebusites, Amorites, Girgashites, Hivites (who lived in Shechem), Arkites, Sinites, Zemarites, and Hamathites (possibly referring to the Canaanite population of the Syrian interior). Later in Genesis another tribe is mentioned, the Perizzites, though they do not appear on the Gen. 10 genealogy. The interesting thing about this is that if you add the Perizzites to the other Canaanite tribes mentioned this brings the number up to twelve. This was a magic number in the ancient Middle East (Babylonian mathematics, for example, is based on 12 which is why we have a 24 hour day, 60 min. hour, etc.) and many historians suspect that the Israelites engaged in some creative adjustment of tribal identities (see under Hebrews) in order to maintain the number of tribes in their confederacy at twelve. So you have, in the Biblical narrative, twelve Canaanite peoples being supplanted by twelve Israelite tribes. Alternatively, you could ignore the Perizzites and to the original eleven add the Hittite/Hurrian warrior aristocracy that made up the ruling class of most of the cities- this gives you 12 also.

A number of the Amarna letters—sent to pharaohs Amenhotep III, Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV) and, briefly, his two successors from vassal kings in Canaan and Syria in the 14th century BC — mention the “Habiru”. These letters, written by Canaanite scribes in the cuneiform-based Akkadian language, complain about attacks by armed groups who were willing to fight and plunder on any side of the local wars in exchange for equipment, provisions, and quarters.

Those people are identified by the Sumerian logogram SA.GAZ in most of the letters, and by the Akkadian name Hapiru in a few from the area of Jerusalem. They appear to be active on a broad area including Syria (at Upe near Damascus), Phoenicia (Sumur, Batrun and Byblos), and to the south as far as Jerusalem. None of the kings of the region, with the possible exception of one Abdi-Ashirta, are called Habiru or SA.GAZ.

Abdi-Heba, the Egyptian vassal ruler of Jerusalem in the Amarna period (mid-1330s BC), wrote a series of letters to the Egyptian king in which he complained about the activities of the “Habiru.” The Habiru were plundering the lands of the king.

Abdi-Heba wanted to know why the king was letting them behave in this way; why he was not sending archers to protect his, the king’s properties. If he did not send military help the whole land would fall to the Habiru

Just after the Amarna period a new problem arose which was to trouble the Egyptian control of southern Canaan (the rest of the region now being under Assyrian control). Pharaoh Horemhab campaigned against Shasu (Egyptian = “wanderers”) or living in nomadic pastoralist tribes, who had moved across the Jordan to threaten Egyptian trade through Galilee and Jezreel. Seti I (ca. 1290 BC) is said to have conquered these Shasu, Semitic nomads living just south and east of the Dead Sea, from the fortress of Taru (Shtir?) to “Ka-n-‘-na”. After the near collapse of the Battle of Kadesh, Rameses II had to campaign vigorously in Canaan to maintain Egyptian power. Egyptian forces penetrated into Moab and Ammon, where a permanent fortress garrison (Called simply “Rameses”) was established.

THE HITTITE EMPIRE FALLS TO THE SEA PEOPLE

EMPIRES FALL TO THE SEA PEOPLE C.1175

The fact that several civilizations around 1175 BCE collapsed has led suggestion that the Sea Peoples may have been involved in the end of the Hittite, Mycenaean and Mitanni kingdoms. The American Hittitologist, Gary Beckman, writes on page 23 of Akkadica 120 (2000):

A terminus ante quem for the destruction of the Hittite empire has been recognised in an inscription carved at Medinet Habu in Egypt in the eighth year of Ramesses III (1175 BC). This text narrates a contemporary great movement of peoples in the eastern Mediterranean, as a result of which “the lands were removed and scattered to the fray. No land could stand before their arms, from Hatti, Kode, Carchemish, Arzawa, Alashiya on being cut off. [ie: cut down]“

Ramesses’ comments about the scale of the Sea Peoples’ onslaught in the eastern Mediterranean are confirmed by the destruction of the states of Hatti, Ugarit, Ashkelon and Hazor around this time. As the Hittitologist Trevor Bryce observes:

It should be stressed that the invasions were not merely military operations, but involved the movements of large populations, by land and sea, seeking new lands to settle.

This situation is confirmed by the Medinet Habu temple reliefs of Ramesses III which show that:

the Peleset and Tjekker warriors who fought in the land battle [against Ramesses III] are accompanied in the reliefs by women and children loaded in ox-carts.

Ramesses III, the second king of the Egyptian 20th Dynasty, who reigned for most of the first half of the 12th century BC, was forced to deal with a later wave of invasions of the Sea Peoples—the best-recorded of these in his eighth year. The pharaoh records the Sea People’s activities

inscriptions from his Medinet Habu mortuary temple:

The foreign countries (ie. Sea Peoples) made a conspiracy in their islands, All at once the lands were removed and scattered in the fray. No land could stand before their arms: from Hatti, Qode, Carchemish, Arzawa and Alashiya on, being cut off [ie. destroyed] at one time. A camp was set up in Amurru. They desolated its people, and its land was like that which has never come into being. They were coming forward toward Egypt, while the flame was prepared before them. Their confederation was the Peleset, Tjeker, Shekelesh, Denyen and Weshesh, lands united. They laid their hands upon the land as far as the circuit of the earth, their hearts confident and trusting: “Our plans will succeed!”

The inscriptions of Ramesses III at his Medinet Habu mortuary temple in Thebes record three victorious campaigns against the Sea Peoples considered bona fide, in Years 5, 8 and 12,

The inner west wall of the second court describes the invasion of Year 5. Only the Peleset and Tjeker are mentioned

In Ramesses’ Year 8, the Nine Bows appear again as a “conspiracy in their isles”. This time, they are revealed unquestionably as Sea Peoples: the Peleset, Tjeker, Shekelesh, Denyen and Weshesh, which are classified as “foreign countries” in the inscription. They camped in Amor and sent a fleet to the Nile. The campaign is recorded more extensively on the inner northwest panel of the first court.

The campaign of Year 12 is attested by the Südstele found on the south side of the temple. It mentions the Tjeker, Peleset, Denyen, Weshesh and Shekelesh.

Papyrus Harris I of the period, found behind the temple, suggests a wider campaign against the Sea Peoples but does not mention the date. In it, the persona of Ramses III says, “I slew the Denyen (D’-yn-yw-n) in their isles” and “burned” the Tjeker and Peleset, implying a maritime raid of his own. He also captured some Sherden and Weshesh “of the sea” and settled them in Egypt. As he is called the “Ruler of Nine Bows” in the relief of the east side

RAMOSES III CLAIMS VICTORY AND SUBJUGATES THE SEA PEOPLE

Ramesses III claims that he incorporated the Sea Peoples as subject peoples and settled them in Southern Canaan, although there is no clear evidence to this effect; the pharaoh, unable to prevent their gradual arrival in Canaan, may have claimed that it was his idea to let them reside in this territory. Their presence in Canaan may have contributed to the formation of new states in this region such as Philistia after the collapse of the Egyptian Empire in Asia.

The Onomasticon of Amenope, or Amenemipit (amen-em-apt), gives a slight credence to the idea that the Ramesside kings settled the Sea Peoples in Canaan. Dated to about 1100 BC, at the end of the 21st dynasty (which had numerous short-reigned pharaohs), this document simply lists names. After six place names, four of which were in Philistia, the scribe lists the Sherden (Line 268), the Tjeker (Line 269) and the Peleset (Line 270), who might be presumed to occupy those cities.The Story of Wenamun on a papyrus of the same cache also places the Tjeker in Dor at that time.

The Great Harris Papyrus or Papyrus Harris I, which was commissioned by his son and chosen successor Ramesses IV, chronicles this king’s vast donations of land, gold statues and monumental construction to Egypt’s various temples at Piramesse, Heliopolis, Memphis, Athribis, Hermopolis, This, Abydos, Coptos, El Kab and other cities in Nubia and Syria. It also records that the king dispatched a trading expedition to the Land of Punt and quarried the copper mines of Timna in southern Canaan.

THE SEA PEOPLE SETTLE DOWN IN CANAAN/PALESTINE C.1100

THE RISE OF THE PHOENCIAN-CANAANITE CITY STATES

while “Phoenician” and “Canaanite” refer to the same culture, archaeologists and historians commonly refer to the Bronze Age, pre-1200 BC Levantines as Canaanites and their Iron Age descendants, particularly those living on the coast, as Phoenicians.

The archaeological evidence from the southern coastal plain of ancient Palestine, termed Philistia in the Hebrew Bible, indicates a disruption of the Canaanite culture that existed during the Late Bronze Age and its replacement (with some integration) by a culture with a possibly foreign (mainly Aegean) origin. This includes distinct pottery, which at first belongs to the Mycenaean IIIC tradition (albeit of local manufacture) and gradually transforms into a uniquely Philistine pottery. Mazar says:

… in Philistia, the producers of Mycenaean IIIC pottery must be identified as the Philistines. The logical conclusion, therefore, is that the Philistines were a group of Mycenaean Greeks who immigrated to the east … Within several decades … a new bichrome style, known as the “Philistine”, appeared in Philistia …

The Sea Peoples, or Peoples of the Sea, were a confederacy of seafaring raiders from Southern Europe, especially the Aegean Sea who sailed around the eastern Mediterranean and invaded Anatolia, Syria, Canaan, Cyprus, and Egypt toward the end of the Bronze Age

A terminus ante quem for the destruction of the Hittite empire has been recognised in an inscription carved at Medinet Habu in Egypt in the eighth year of Ramesses III (1175 BC). This text narrates a contemporary great movement of peoples in the eastern Mediterranean, as a result of which “the lands were removed and scattered to the fray. No land could stand before their arms, from Hatti, Kode, Carchemish, Arzawa, Alashiya on being cut off. [ie: cut down]“

RAMOSES III BUILDS A TEMPLE TO AMEN IN CANAAN c1194BC

THIS IS THE ORIGIN OF THE SOLOMON TEMPLE MYTH

After the collapse of the Levant under the so-called “Peoples of the Sea” Ramesses III (ca. 1194 BC) is said to have built a temple to the god Amen to receive tribute from the southern Levant. This was described as being built in Pa-Canaan a geographical reference whose meaning is disputed, with suggestions that it may refer to the city of Gaza or to the entire Egyptian-occupied territory in the south west corner of the Near East.

Some believe the “Habiru” signified generally all the nomadic tribes known as “Hebrews,” and particularly the early Israelites, who sought to appropriate the fertile region for themselves. Whether the term may also include other related Semitic peoples such as the Moabites, Ammonites and Edomites is uncertain.

Reign of Ramesses III

Usimare Ramesses III (“Powerful one of Ma’at and Ra, Beloved of Amun, Ra bore him, Ruler of Heliopolis”) was the second Pharaoh of the Twentieth Dynasty and is considered to be the last great New Kingdom king to wield any substantial authority over Egypt.He was probably murdered by an assassin in a conspiracy led by one of his secondary wives and her minor son.

Ramesses III was born during the twentieth dynasty to his father Pharaoh Setnakhte and mother Queen Tiy-merenese. His father Setnakhte came to the throne by rescuing Egypt from the hands of foreign powers. After Ramesses II or Ramesses The Great outlived twelve of his sons, Egypt was put in the hands of others. Setnakhte saved Egypt and led Egypt into the twentieth dynasty. It is said that Ramesses III “entered life destined for the kingship and remained at the pinnacle of society and power throughout” (Redford, XXIV). Ramesses III ruled Egypt for 32 years before his life was cut short. He had recently relocated to Thebes to celebrate the Heb-Sed, the rejuvenation festival that occurs after a king rules for thirty years and it continues to take place every three years thereafter. It was in Thebes where this great conspiracy was conjured, and performed.(Redford I-XXIV)

This is obviously a failed Amen/Set plot carried out by the Theben Canaanite influenced Amen/Set worshipers in a last attempt to put an Amen/Set shepard king on the throne of Egypt.

THE BATTLE BETWEEN AMEN/SET AND RA/HORUS IS STILL GOING ON IN EGYPTIAN POWER POLITICS

Ramesses III is believed to have reigned from March 1186 to April 1155 BC. This is based on his known accession date of I Shemu day 26 and his death on Year 32 III Shemu day 15, for a reign of 31 years, 1 month and 19 days.

In a description of his coronation from Medinet Habu, four doves were said to be “dispatched to the four corners of the horizon to confirm that the living Horus, Ramses III, is (still) in possession of his throne, that the order of Maat prevails in the cosmos and society

RAMOSES III, THE LIVING HORUS, EMBODIMENT OF OSIRIS, DEDICATED TO RA ,BASED IN THE NILE DELTA

WITH HIS “WIFE OF GOD” ENSURING “AMEN-RA” RULE AMONGST THE PRIESTS OF AMEN

AND ACTING AS HIS SPY IN THEBEN KARNACK

RAMOSEES III IS MURDERED IN A THEBAN POWER STRUGGLE PLOT

IT SEEMS THE SET FACTION OF THE PRIESTS OF AMUN ARE BEHIND THIS

IT WAS THIS “CANAANITE SET” FACTION THAT OPPOSED THE PREVIOUS EGYPTIAN PHAROAH SEKNAKHTE

AND INVITED FORIEGN HYKSOS INVADERS TO TAKE OVER AS PHAROAH

BUT FORTUNATELY FOR EGYPT

RAMOSES III DEFEATED THE SEA PEOPLES INVASION OF EGYPT BEFORE THE PLOT WAS SPRUNG

THE PLOT ALSO FAILS TO REPLACE THE PHARONIC LINE

…AND THE CONSPIRATORS WHERE CAUGHT TRIED AND EXECUTED

THE RA DEDICATED PHAROANIC LINE CONTINUES….

THIS PROBABLY MARKS THE END OF SOCIO-POLITICAL POWER OF SET WORSHIP IN EGYPT

THE WIFE OF GOD IS PERMANENTLY STATIONED IN KARNACK TO ENSURE AMEN-RA WORSHIP

THERE WILL BE NO MORE PHAROAHS DEDICATED TO SET EVER!

THE RAMOSSES PHARONIC LINE CONTINUES FROM III-XI UNBROKEN!

SO RAMOSES III BECOMES ANOTHER PHAROAH OF THE EXODUS

LIKE AHMOSE I FROM EXODUS 1(WHICH IS ALSO THE ENSLAVEMENT)

AND RAMOSES II, MERNEPTAH AND SEKNAKHTE FROM EXODUS 2.(WITH THE DENIGRATION AND EXPULSION OF SET)

IT SEEMS THIS WAS A LAST ATTEMPT TO GET A SET/AMEN PHAROANIC LINE RETURNED TO THEBEN CONTROL

DID THIS FAILURE LED TO A FLEEING OF A PHAROANIC BRANCH OF PEOPLE DEDICATED TO SET?

THE PLOT INVOLVED PHAROAHS “SECONDRY” WIVE AND A MINOR SON……….THIS SOUNDS BIBLICALLY FAMILIAR

Apion (20s BC – c. 45 AD), Graeco-Egyptian grammarian, sophist and commentator on Homer, was born at the Siwa Oasis, and flourished in the first half of the 1st century AD, identifies a second exodus mentioned by Manetho when a renegade Egyptian priest called Osarseph led 80,000 “lepers” to rebel against Egypt at the end of the 19th Dynasty (12th century). Then Apion additionally combines these with the Biblical Exodus, even alleges that this heretic priest changed his name to Moses.

BUT IN THIS CASE APIONS ACCOUNT FITS SEKNAKHTE EXPULSION OF THE ASIATIC BETTER

AS IN THE CASE OF RAMOSES III THE SMALLISH BAND OF CONSPIRATORS ARE CAUGHT AND EXECUTED

MOSES AND HIS FOLLOWERS WOULD OF BEEN DEAD, SO NO EXODUS!

BUT IT IS POSSIBLE A PHARONIC CHALLENGER OF SET ,IS SPARED EXECUTION AND JUST EXPELLED WITH HIS PERSONAL RETAINERS

OR AT LEAST THE LAST REMNENTS OF “CANAANITE SET” FACTION PREISTS OF AMEN FLEE EGYPT

…AND THE LAST HYKSOS SET/AMEN WORSHIPPING EGYPTIAN PHARONIC CLAIMENT LEAVES EGYPT

WITH THE GOD SET REMOVED FROM EGYPTIAN RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL POWER

IT IS ABOUT NOW WE SEE THE BIRTH OF ISRAEL

LATER THIS STORY IS MERGED WITH THE MOSES HIGH PRIEST OF SET EXPULSION ,AND THE EARLIER HYKSOS EXPULSION TO GIVE US THE MODERN EXODUS STORY.

the “sons of God” who appear in Genesis 6:2 are identified as the children of Seth(Set), and the “daughters of men” as women descended from Cain, who successfully tempt most of the Sethites to come down from their mountain and join the Cainites in the valley below, under the instigation of Genun son of Lamech.

href=”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflict_of_Adam_and_Eve_with_Satan”>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conflict_of_Adam_and_Eve_with_Satan

The name Edom means “red” in Hebrew.It comes from Egyptian where Red is the colour of Set.Canaan is the land of Set and Edom specifically is the Egyptian followers of Set,given to Esau,(Shasu are the Egyptians that live in the Edom) the elder son of the Hebrew patriarch Isaac, at the fact he was born “red all over”.The Torah, Tanakh and New Testament thus describe the Edomites as descendants of Esau.

WITH THE FALL OF EGYPTIAN POWER IN CANAAN

THEY POSSIBLY UTILISED THE TEMPLE TO AMEN BUILT BY RAMOSES III IN CANAAN

BEFORE THEY FALL TO BABYLON

AND ARE CONVERTED TO MONOTHEISM BY PERSIANS ,CYRUS THE GREAT AND ZOROASTRIAN SCRIBES

There can no longer be the slightest doubt that the Exodus never happened. Neither the Exodus, nor the wandering in the desert, nor the conquest of Canaan.

The Egyptians were obsessive chroniclers. Many tens of thousands of tablets have already been deciphered. It would have been impossible for an event like the exodus to pass without being reported at length. Not if 600,000 people left, as the Bible tells it, or 60,000, or even 6000. Especially if during the flight a whole Egyptian army contingent, including war chariots, was drowned.

The same goes for the Conquest. Because of acute security concerns, after being invaded once from there, the Egyptians employed a host of spies, – travelers, merchants and others – to follow closely the events in neighboring Canaan, in every single one of its towns and at all times. An invasion of Canaan, even a minor one, would have been reported. Except for the periodic incursions of Bedouin tribes, nothing was recorded.

Moreover, the Egyptian towns mentioned in the Bible did not exist at the time the event is supposed to have happened. They did exist, however, when the Bible was written, in the first or second century BC.

There is no need to point out that after a hundred years of frantic archaeological searching by devout Christians and Zionist zealots, not a shred of concrete evidence for the conquest of Canaan has been found (nor that the Kingdoms of Saul, David or Salomon ever existed).

THE GENOCIDE BEGINS

“‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’ –Book of Deuteronomy, 7:1-8″

According to the traditional view, around the 11th century BCE, the first of a series of Israelite kingdoms and states established rule over the region;.

According to the Bible, before the united monarchy, the Israelite tribes lived as a confederation under ad hoc charismatic leaders called Judges. In around 1020 BCE, under extreme threat from foreign peoples, the tribes united to form the first united Kingdom of Israel. Samuel anointed Saul from the tribe of Benjamin as the first king c. 1026 BCE, but it was David who in c.1006 BCE created a strong unified Israelite monarchy.

The tribe of Judah elevated King David to rule over them, and the Davidic line survived for almost 350 years, until the Kingdom fell in 586 BCE to the Babylonian Empire

According to the Hebrew Bible, the First Temple was built by King Solomon (reigned c 970-c 930).

When Solomon’s successor Rehoboam dealt tactlessly with economic complaints of the northern tribes, in about 930 BCE (there are difference of opinion as to the actual year) the united Kingdom of Israel split into two kingdoms: the northern Kingdom of Israel, which included the cities of Shechem and Samaria, and the southern Kingdom of Judah, which contained Jerusalem; with most of the non-Israelite provinces achieving independence

The Kingdom of Judah (Hebrew: ???????? ????????, Standard Mal?ut Y?huda Tiberian Mal?û? Y?hû?ah) (c.930 BC–586 BC), often known as the “Southern Kingdom,” was one of the successor states to the “United Monarchy.”

THESE BIBLICAL CLAIMS ARE FALSE.

ALL THESES STORIES ARE PURE FANTASY

KING DAVID OR A BANDIT CHIEF

The ancient Jewish hero David, “son of Jesse the Bethlehemite,” is a “curiously elusive figure” (Oxford Companion to the Bible). In turns shepherd, giant killer, court musician, poet, warlord and king, nothing and no one outside the Bible notes his existence.

If a historical ‘Dawid’ inspired tales of a legendary king, the original was an inconsequential bandit chieftain in the Judaean hills, nothing more. Possibly the only element of truth in the biblical story is the episode of David as renegade and outlaw leader, living from theft.

“The biblical story of David is indeed mythic in nature.. He spent most of his career as a brigand-king, and, where he ruled, he did so by employing murder and mayhem.. “

– Baruch Halpern, David’s Secret Demons, p 479/80.

The archaeological evidence concludes that “an independent history of Judea during the Iron I and Iron II periods [i.e., the period of David] has little room for historicizing readings of the stories of I-II Samuel and I Kings.” Within this gamut some interesting studies of David have been written. Baruch Halpern has pictured David as a lifelong vassal of Achish, the Philistine king of Gath; Israel Finkelstein and Neil Asher Silberman have identified as the oldest and most reliable section of Samuel those chapters which describe David as the charismatic leader of a band of outlaws who captures Jerusalem and makes it his capital.

Steven McKenzie, Associate Professor of the Hebrew Bible at Rhodes College, Memphis, Tennessee, USA and author of King David: A Biography, argues that the Biblical version of David was conceived by spin doctors. He states the belief that David actually came from a wealthy family and was “ambitious and ruthless”: “The vigor with which the apology in the Bible asserts David’s innocence against Saul strongly suggests that he was in fact involved in a plot against him.” The story with Goliath was probably part of the propaganda in David’s favour. McKenzie’s view is that David was a tyrant who murdered his political opponents, including his own sons

THE KINGDOM OF DAVID WAS PURE FANATSY

The brevity (and brutality) with which the Holy Book records the conquest of the whole of Syrio/Palestine is breathtaking:

Defeat of the Philistines:

“And after this it came to pass that David smote the Philistines, and subdued them: and David took Methegammah out of the hand of the Philistines.” – 2 Samuel 8.1.

Conquest of the North:

“David smote also Hadadezer, the son of Rehob, king of Zobah, as he went to recover his border at the river Euphrates … David slew of the Syrians two and twenty thousand men. David put garrisons in Syria of Damascus: and the Syrians became servants to David.” – 2 Samuel 8.3,6.

Genocide and conquest of the South:

“For it came to pass, when David was in Edom, and Joab the captain of the host was gone up to bury the slain, after he had smitten every male in Edom.” – 2 Kings 11.15.

Mass Slaughter in the Transjordan:

“And he smote Moab, and measured them with a line, casting them down to the ground; even with two lines measured he to put to death, and with one full line to keep alive. And so the Moabites became David’s servants, and brought “–2 Samuel 8.2.

“And it came to pass, after the year was expired, at the time when kings go forth to battle, that David sent Joab, and his servants with him, and all Israel; and they destroyed the children of Ammon, and besieged Rabbah.” – 2 Samuel 11.1.

As archaeology unequivocally testifies, in the 10th century BC in the valleys of Palestine Canaanite culture continued uninterrupted. Thankfully most of the biblical carnage that is the motif of “David’s Empire Building” is a fanatic’s fantasy.

NO EVIDENCE OF A UNITED MONARCHY

According to Israel Finkelstein and Neil Silberman, authors of The Bible Unearthed: Archaeology’s New Vision of Ancient Israel and the Origin of Its Sacred Texts,the idea of a United Monarchy is not accurate history but rather “creative expressions of a powerful religious reform movement,” possibly “based on certain historical kernels.” they cite that the earliest independent reference to the Kingdom of Israel is about 890 BCE, while for that of Judah is about 750 BCE

THE BIBLICAL CLAIMS OF THE KINGDOMS OF ISRAEL AND JUDAH ARE FALSE

The Kingdom of Israel (or Northern Kingdom) existed as an independent state until 722 BCE when it was conquered by the Assyrian Empire; while the Kingdom of Judah (or Southern Kingdom) existed as an independent state until 586 BCE when it was conquered by the Babylonian Empire.

The so-called ‘United Monarchy’ is found only in the Bible. The ‘empire’ has no monuments, no inscriptions and no artifacts. Neither David nor Solomon is as much as mentioned in the huge corpus of state records of either Egypt or Assyria.

Jebusite City

The Jebusite city on the eastern hill has nothing to do with a “King David” but the Jewish hero gets the credit.

The so-called “City of David” occupied a hilltop barely 200 by 600 yards. Nothing “Davidic” has ever been found here but numerous Astarte figurines – fertility symbols of the Canaanites – have been.

NO SOLOMON EITHER

Concedes a ‘pro-imperial Israel’ historian:

“Solomon … in the eyes of Israelite historians, marked the apex of Israelite achievement. Curiously, no reference to him or his father David, or their empire in a non-Israelite source is known … “

– Isserlin, The Israelites, p72.

Legendary kings David and Solomon supposedly had an imperial capital in Jerusalem. Yet extensive archaeology in the city reveals Jerusalem was a village in the 10th century BC. In contrast, Megiddo, ‘part of the empire.’ far to the north, had a palace!

In reality, separate and distinctive chiefdoms developed in Samaria and Judah in the 9th century. They were never a ‘united monarchy.’ The north was larger, richer and more developed – and soon succumbed to the Assyrians

THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMN

SOLOMONS TEMPLE…NO TRACE AND NO MENTION OUTSIDE OF THE BIBLE

WE CAN SAFELY SAY SOLOMONS TEMPLE DID NOT EXIST

“The archaeological evidence in Jerusalem for the famous building projects of Solomon is nonexistent.

19th and early 20th century excavations around the Temple Mount in Jerusalem failed to identify even a trace of Solomon’s fabled Temple or palace complex.”

– Finkelstein, Silberman, p128

Because of the religious and political sensitivities involved, no archaeological excavations and only limited surface surveys of the Temple Mount have been conducted. Because no excavations of the site have been allowed, there is no direct archaeological evidence for the existence of Solomon’s Temple. This building is not mentioned in extra-biblical accounts which have survived

THIS IS A COVER STORY .ITS THE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTSIC INQUISTION IN ACTION.ALL 3 IN THIS CASE!!

YOU DO NOT NEED TO EXCAVATE TO SEE FOUNDATIONS IN THE GROUND

ANY GROUND SONAR WILL SHOW THE REMAINS OF SOLOMONS TEMPLE IF IT EXISTED

…SO FAR NOTHING!! AND NO MENTION IN ANY NON-BIBLICAL REFERENCE.DO NOT EXPECT TO HEAR ANY MORE NEWS.

YOU CAN BE BLOODY SURE NO-ONE WILL BE ALLOWED TO EXCAVATE TO PROVE ITS NON-EXISTANCE!!

THERE IS ALSO NO TRACE OF A “SECOND TEMPLE” OR EVEN THE CLAIMED HEROD THE GREATS “REBUILDING” (JUST FALSE CLAIMS)

BUT LETS LOOK AT THIS FANTASY TEMPLE OF SOLOMON

FIRST WHAT ABOUT THE TEMPLE DESIGN ITSELF?

Its general form is reminiscent of Egyptian sanctuaries and closely matches that of other ancient temples in the region

Roland De Vaux (tr. John McHugh), Ancient Israel: Its Life and Institutions (NY, McGraw-Hill, 1961).

THERE IS ALSO NO TRACE OF A “SECOND TEMPLE” OR EVEN THE CLAIMED HEROD THE GREATS “REBUILDING” (JUST FALSE CLAIMS) THE TEMPLE IS A MEMORY OF THIER TIMES IN EGYPT AND EGYPTAIN TEMPLES LIKE THE TEMPLE OF SET?..WITH ITS RITUAL BATH HOUSE!!

The Temples dedicated to Seth, the God of Evil, Chaos, Desert & Storms, were believed to be the dwelling place of this famous Egyptian God

The temple of Seth would consist of heavy gates which accessed a massive hall with great stone columns, rooms, or chambers, were lit by candles and incense would be burnt to purify the air of the Temple,to create an atmosphere of deepening mystery until the priests reached the chapel and the shrine which contained the Naos. The Naos was the stone tabernacle inside the shrine which housed the great Statue of Seth, the God of Evil, Chaos, Desert & Storms.

Only the Pharaoh and the Priests of Seth were allowed inside the temple and the priests would undergo ritual purification in a deep stone pool before they entered the Inner Sanctum of the Temple.

THEY DID FIND A BATH HOUSE WHILE EXCAVATING ,SO NO TEMPLE OF SOLOMON BUT POSSIBLY A TEMPLE OF SET?

Coins stamped with successor to Pontius Pilate

Construction ‘had not even begun’ by Herod’s death The history of one of the world’s holiest sites – sacred to both Jews and Muslims – is set to be rewritten, following a surprise discovery in a ritual bath beneath the complex.

BUT FERTILITY CULTS BOTH MALE AND FEMALE USED SACRED BATHING POOLS

WE KNOW THE EGYPTIANS BUILT A TEMPLE TO AMEN IN CANAAN ,

IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE PROTO-ISRAELITES USED THE TEMPLE OF AMEN BUILT BY RAMOSES III

Ramesses III (ca. 1194 BC) is said to have built a temple to the god Amen to receive tribute from the southern Levant. This was described as being built in Pa-Canaan.

AMEN IS ASSOCIATED WITH SET IN EGYPT AND AMEN/SET IS ASSOCIATED WITH BAAL /EL IN CANANN

BUT THERE ARE OTHER TEMPLES LIKE IT….

According to Finkelstein in The Bible Unearthed, the description of the temple is remarkably similar to that of surviving remains of Phoenician temples of the time, and it is certainly plausible, from the point of view of archaeology, that the temple was constructed to the design of Phoenicians.

SO THE TEMPLE OF SOLOMON IS NOT EVEN A NEW OR UNIQUE DESIGN

HEBREW TALES OF THE FIRST TEMPLE ARE PROBABLY BASED ON THE TEMPLE TO AMEN BUILT BY RAMOSES III IN PA-CANAAN c.1194BC
OR ARE BASED ON THE MEMORIES OF THE TEMPLES OF SET
WHEN THE HYKSOS RULED LOWER(NORTH) EGYPT FROM THE CITY OF AVAIRS
OR THE EGYPTIAN RULE OF THE 21ST DYNASTY FROM TANIS (ZOAN)

IN FACT EVERYTHING FOUND IN THIS ISRAEL ACTUALLY HAS AN EGYPTIAN FEEL

WAS SOLOMON IN FACT BASED ON AMENHOTEP III?

In the 1950s, Yigael Yadin – Israeli Defence Chief of Staff turned archaeologist – decided that the ruins of Megiddo, Hazor and Gezer were the legendary ‘Fortress Cities’ of Solomon.”Our great guide was the Bible” he said. Thus he confirmed the Bible with the Bible.

This was despite an absence of any find at the sites naming Solomon – but a cartouche naming Pharaoh Amenhotep III instead!

Excavations in Jaffa confirm presence of Egyptian settlement on the ancient city site

Old Testament Studies and Biblical Archaeology division at Mainz University has been involved in the archaeological survey of the ancient city of Jaffa since 2007

The recent excavations have not only shed new light on the destruction of elements of the fortification, but also unearthed evidence pointing towards the presence of an Egyptian population on the site.

Historically, Jaffa, now part of the city of Tel Aviv, is the oldest port documented in world history. Ever since the 2nd millennium B.C., Jaffa has been home to intense trading activity. The remains of a gateway belonging to an Egyptian fortification dating to the dynasty of Ramses II (1279-1213 B.C.) had already been discovered during excavations led by the former municipal archaeologist Y. Kaplan in the 1950s. However, the findings from Kaplan’s digs have never been extensively published

The German site director Dr. Martin Peilstöcker of JGU explains that it has now become clear that the gate itself was destroyed and rebuilt at least four times. Moreover, it also appears that there is more than just the mud brick architecture and household pottery that reflect Egyptian tradition. In fact, a rare scarab amulet has been found that bears the cartouche of the Egyptian Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-1353 B.C.), thus also attesting to the presence of an Egyptian community in the city. Some of the discoveries made during the excavations are to be put on display in a special exhibition at the Bible Experience Museum Frankfurt in 2013.

SOLOMONS MINES ,PORT ,PILLARS OR SMELTING INDUSTRY….NO EVIDENCE

Solomon’s Mines? American rabbi-archaeologist Nelson Glueck so-named the copper mining at Timna (30 km. north of Eilat) in the 1930s. They were, in fact, Egyptian mines, as hieroglyphs and the near-by temple of Hathor attest.

No one has ever found Solomon’s port at Ezion-Geber. It is not at Eilat or at Aqaba or anywhere between, so biblicists have been obliged to reposition it down the coast into Sinai, but no one knows where. King Solomon’s pillars or Solomon’s mines north of Eilat were not Solomon’s because they were abandoned before the tenth century and were probably Egyptian, and his smelting industry, the bible (1 Kg 7:46) says was between Succoth and Zarethan, nowhere near Nelson Glueck’s “Pittsburg of Palestine” at Tell el-Khaleifeh (identified with Ezion Geber). In fact, Tell el-Khaleifeh was a fort built to protect the spice trade with Arabia two centuries after Solomon. Mining occurred most intensely at Wadi Feinan around 700 BC under Assyrian supervision.

WHAT ABOUT SOLOMONS STABLES? WELL THEY SEEM TO BE ROMAN

An alternative view suggests that the mosque was initially a water reservoir that had been built by the Roman Emperor Hadrian in the second century, along with the stone wall currently surrounding al-Aqsa Mosque. Its overall structure closely resembles that of the Roman Ramla reservoir with stone pillars and junctions. That the reservoir was built at the same time as the wall is evident since the southern and eastern walls of the reservoir are a continuation of the wall surrounding al-Aqsa Mosque. Instead of an addition built long after the wall, the reservoir was built at the same time, as can be inferred from the joining of the stones.

One of these vertical canals can still be seen today and is located at the level of the main entrance of the Marwani mosque. It is semi-circular and is lined with a Roman fuller of limestone mixed with ground clay and sand

SOLOMON DID NOT EXIST

NOT ONLY HAVE WE SEEN MANY ANCIENT SITES IN ISRAEL CLAIMED TO BE SOLOMONS

..ONLY TO DISCOVER THEY WHERE BUILT BY AMENHOTEP III

WE NOW MUST ASK OURSELVES….

THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON OR THE WISDOM OF AMENHOTEP III?

Colossal statue of Amenhotep III in the British Museum

Colossal statue of Amenhotep III in the British Museum

Biblical “Proverbs of Solomon”?

“Every part of the book bears the mark of foreign influences … The close connection between the first part of the Thirty Sayings with Egyptian Wisdom … is only a special instance.”

Egyptian Wisdom:”Maxims of Amenhotep III” 1382 – 1344 BC

J.C. Rylaarsdam (Peake’s Commentary, 444)

Amenhotep III (sometimes read as Amenophis III; Egyptian Amāna-Ḥātpa; meaning Amun is Satisfied) also known as Amenhotep the Magnificent was the ninth pharaoh of the Eighteenth dynasty. According to different authors, he ruled Egypt from June 1386 to 1349 BC or June 1388 BC to December 1351 BC/1350 BC after his father Thutmose IV died. Amenhotep III was the son of Thutmose by Mutemwiya, a minor wife of Amenhotep’s father

His reign was a period of unprecedented prosperity and artistic splendour, when Egypt reached the peak of her artistic and international power. When he died (probably in the 39th year of his reign), his son initially ruled as Amenhotep IV, but later changed his own royal name to Akhenaten

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amenhotep_III

TEACHINGS OF AMEN-EM-OPE VS PROVERBS

Instruction of Amenemope (also called Instructions of Amenemopet, Wisdom of Amenemopet) is a literary work composed in Ancient Egypt, most likely during the Ramesside Period (ca. 1300–1075 BC); it contains thirty chapters of advice for successful living, ostensibly written by the scribe Amenemope son of Kanakht as a legacy for his son.Amenemope belongs to the literary genre of “instruction” (Egyptian sebayt). It is the culmination of centuries of development going back to the Instruction of Ptahhotep in the Old Kingdom

Jaroslav Černý, whose authority on New Kingdom paleography was so great that his conclusions were considered “unquestionable”, dated the fragmentary Amenemope text on the Cairo 1840 ostracon to the late 21st dynasty.Since a 21st-dynasty date inevitably makes Amenemope chronologically prior to the earliest possible date for Proverbs, this would definitively establish the priority of Amenemope over Proverbs and make influence in the other direction impossible.

Other evidence for Egyptian priority includes:

the close literary relationship between Amenemope and earlier Ancient Egyptian works such as the Instruction of Kagemni and the Instruction of Ptahhotep (both dated to at least the 12th dynasty) and the Instruction of Ani (dated to the late 18th or early 19th dynasty)

the demonstrably native Egyptian character of the genre, themes, and vocabulary of Amenemope

the discovery of the editorial and structural mechanisms by which the Egyptian original was adapted by the biblical author

(Prov 22:17-21) is now known to be a translation from passages in the Egyptian hieratic papyrus, Amen-em-ope. This was obtained by the British Museum in 1888 but not published until 1923. German scholars in studies from 1924-1926 showed that Wisdom 22:17-23:11 was in Amen-em-ope.

Comparison of texts

A number of passages in the Instruction of Amenemope have been compared with the Book of Proverbs, including:

(Proverbs 22:20): “Have I not written for you thirty sayings of counsel and knowledge?” (ESV)

(Amenemope, ch. 30, line 539): “Look to these thirty chapters; they inform, they educate.”

(Proverbs 22:17-18):”Incline thine ear, and hear the words of the wise, And apply thine heart to my doctrine; For it is pleasant if thou keep them in thy belly, that they may be established together upon thy lips”

(Amenemope, ch. 1):”Give thine ear, and hear what I say, And apply thine heart to apprehend; It is good for thee to place them in thine heart, let them rest in the casket of thy belly; That they may act as a peg upon thy tongue”

(Proverbs 22:22):”Rob not the poor, for he is poor, neither oppress (or crush) the lowly in the gate.”

(Amenemope, ch. 2):”Beware of robbing the poor, and oppressing the afflicted.”

(Proverbs 22:24-5): “Do not befriend the man of anger, Nor go with a wrathful man, Lest thou learn his ways and take a snare for thy soul.”

(Amenemope, ch. 10): “Associate not with a passionate man, Nor approach him for conversation; Leap not to cleave to such an one; That terror carry thee not away.”

(Proverbs 22:29):”[if you] You see a man quick in his work, before kings will he stand, before cravens, he will not stand.”

(Amenemope, ch. 30):”A scribe who is skillful in his business findeth worthy to be a courtier”

(Proverbs 23:1):”When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, Consider diligently what is before thee; And put a knife to thy throat, If thou be a man given to appetite. Be not desirous of his dainties, for they are breads of falsehood.”

(Amenemope, ch. 23): “Eat not bread in the presence of a ruler, And lunge not forward(?) with thy mouth before a governor(?). When thou art replenished with that to which thou has no right, It is only a delight to thy spittle. Look upon the dish that is before thee, And let that (alone) supply thy need.”

(Proverbs 23:4-5):”Toil not to become rich, And cease from dishonest gain; For wealth maketh to itself wings, Like an eagle that flieth heavenwards”

(Amenemope, ch. 7):”Toil not after riches; If stolen goods are brought to thee, they remain not over night with thee. They have made themselves wings like geese. And have flown into the heavens.”

(Proverbs 14:7):”Speak not in the hearing of a fool, for he will despise the wisdom of thy words”

(Amenemope, ch. 21):”Empty not thine inmost soul to everyone, nor spoil (thereby) thine influence”

(Proverbs 23:10): “Remove not the widows landmark; And enter not into the field of the fatherless.”

(Amenemope, ch. 6): “Remove not the landmark from the bounds of the field…and violate not the widows boundary”

(Proverbs 23:12):”Apply thine heart unto instruction and thine ears to the words of knowledge”

(Amenemope, ch. 1):”Give thine ears, hear the words that are said, give thine heart to interpret them.”

ANCIENT ISRAEL IS POLYTHEISTIC …AND SO WAS THE YHWH…HE HAD A WIFE YOU KNOW

THE EGYPTIAN POLYTHEISTIC “YHWH”

YHWH WAS A NON-SEMITIC GOD…FIRST FOUND ON AN EGYPTIAN TEMPLE TO AMEN , BUILT BY AMENHOTEP III!!!

Despite the expectations of earlier years no direct evidence of the name “Yahweh”, the tetragrammaton, in Canaanite texts has yet been found.

“In no list of gods or offerings is the mysterious god *Ya ever mentioned; his cult at Ebla is a chimera. Yahweh was not known at Ugarit either; the singular name Yw (vocalisation unknown) in a damaged passage of the Baal Cycle (KTU 1.1 Dictionary of deities and demons in the Bible DDD K. van der Toorn, Bob Becking, Pieter Willem van der Horst, 1999:960)

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canaanite_religion#Pantheon

The temple at Soleb was dedicated to the cults of the dynastic god Amun-Re and that of “Nebma’atre, lord of Nubia”. The latter, of course, represented the deified Amenhotep III himself, depicted as a god with the attributes of Amun

The temple of Soleb is additionally noteworthy for the Soleb Topographical List of Amenhotep III, the names of multiple locations in Egypt’s Nubian and Asiatic empires of the New Kingdom period being recorded around the column bases

The Shasu contain a group with a Yahwistic name, although the Egyptian inscription of Amenhotep III, at the Soleb temple, “Yhw in the land of the Shasu”, does not use the determinative for God, or even for people, but only for the possible name of a place.

THE NAME OF GOD SEEM TO HAVE EGYPTIAN ROOTS

The Bible mentions Beth-Shemesh in the description of the northern border of the Tribe of Judah (Joshua 15: 10-11) and as a Levitical city in the territory of Judah (Joshua 21: 16). Following the battle of Ebenezer and the capture of the Ark of the Covenant by the Philistines, the ark was returned to Beth-Shemesh (1 Samuel 6: 9-18). The town is listed in Solomon’s second administrative district (1 Kings 4: 9),

http://www.tau.ac.il/humanities/archaeology/projects/proj_bethshemesh.html

Samson is the name of the Semitic sun god, Shemesh.Beth Shemesh, a place popular in the Jewish scriptures, is the House or Temple of Shemesh, the sun god. It appears in the Egyptian execration texts. It is about 15 miles from Jerusalem. Many place names with solar implications in the region suggest it was a centre of a solar cult. The Samson stories are in the same region. Solomon looks towards the sky to see his god whom no other god is like. Yehouah was originally equated with Shemesh. Theophoric names in Yah show it. Uriah and Uriyahu mean Yehouah is my light, my fire or my sun. Ner and Neriyahu mean respectively lamp or light and Yehouah is my light or my lamp, Yehozarah means Yehouah shines forth, dawns or has risen. Sheraiah means Yehouah is dawn.

http://www.askwhy.co.uk/judaism/0237SunGod.php

In ancient transliterations of the name into Egyptian hieroglyphics, Budge’s An Egyptian Hieroglyphic Dictionary gives two transliterations that occur in Egyptian glyphs—IA or YA, and IAA or YAA. In ancient transliterations of the name of Yehouah into cuneiform script, which unlike Hebrew script, had written vowels, reads Yahweh. In the Murashu texts, Aramaic texts written in cuneiform script on clay tablets found at Nippur, the first portion of Jewish names recorded there appear as YAHU and never as YEHO. Transliterations of Yehouah also occur in ancient Greek texts where it variously occurs as IA, IAOUE, AWOUEI, IAW, IWE. Greek witnesses agree that Yehouah begins with YA. The pronounciation of Yehouah can be recovered as YAHUWEH sometimes abbreviated as YAHWEH, YAHU or YAH. The origin of the name of God.

Bible’s Buried Secrets: Did God Have a Wife? (1/5)

Dr Francesca Stavrakopoulou asks whether the ancient Israelites believed in one God as the Bible claims. She puts the Bible text under the microscope, examining what the original Hebrew said, and explores archaeological sites in Syria and the Sinai which are shedding new light on the beliefs of the people of the Bible. Was the God of Abraham unique? Were the ancient Israelites polytheists? And is it all possible that God had another half?

THE ONLY JUDEAN “HOUSE OF YHWH”

IT HAS 2 GODS (GOD AND HIS WIFE)

AND THE REFERENCE TO IT BEING A HOUSE OF YHWH COMES FROM BROKEN POTTERY AFTER THE TEMPLES DESTRUCTION

The House of YHWH (or “House of Yahweh”, “House of the LORD”, Hebrew בית יהוה) is a phrase found in the Hebrew Bible and on at least one inscription, usually referring to a temple.There have been two structures identified as a ‘House of Yahweh’. One is located in Elephantine Egypt. The other structure suggested as a House of Yahweh is at Tel Arad.

FYI THE OTHER “HOUSE OF YHWH” IS A CONVERTED EGYPTIAN TEMPLE ADJOINING THE TEMPLE TO AMEN(AS A FERTILITY GOD)!!!

Among the most significant artifacts unearthed from this time are ostraca dating from the mid-7th century BCE, referring to this citadel as the “House of Yahweh”, which William G. Dever suggests may have referred to the temple at Arad or the temple at Jerusalem.

However, the temple was probably demolished around 700 BCE, which is before the date of the inscription ,while Solomons temple was supposed to have stood until its destruction by Nebuchadnezzar II after the Siege of Jerusalem of 587 BCE.But there is no evidence for the existance of Solomans temple either.

In 1962 Yohanan Aharoni excavated at Tel Arad the only Judean temple recovered by archaeologists to date. The incense altars and two “standing stones” may have been dedicated to Yahweh and Asherah

EXCEPT THAT YHWH WAS POLYTHEISTIC c.600BC
GODS WIFE ASHERAH

SO WHAT HAVE THEY ACTUALLY FOUND THAT PROVES ISRAEL EXISTED?

In 2007, artifacts dating to the 8th to 6th centuries BCE were described as being possibly the first physical evidence of human activity at the Temple Mount during the First Temple period. The findings included animal bones; ceramic bowl rims, bases, and body sherds; the base of a juglet used to pour oil; the handle of a small juglet; and the rim of a storage jar ,, stone weights for weighing silver,a seal impression containing ancient Hebrew writing which includes the name Netanyahu ben Yaush.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solomon%27s_Temple#Archaeology

THESE FINDINGS ALSO SUGGEST THE INHABITANTS WHERE POLYTHEISTS (See BBC Davids Kingdom doc.)

ANY OTHER EVIDENCE?…ONLY FORGERIES

Tel Dan, at the foot of Mount Hermon in northern Galilee, is Israel’s longest continuous archaeological dig. Work started in 1966. Three fragments of a 13-line Aramaic inscription discovered by archaeologists of the Nelson Glueck School of Biblical Archaeology in 1993/4 purportedly refer to the “House of David.”

One interpretation is that stele records King Hazael’s 842 BC killing of “Jehoram, son of Ahab, king of Israel, and Ahaziah, son of Jehoram, king of the House of David. I set their towns to ruin, their land to desolation.”

But this interpretation of the fragments has been challenged, both by a realignment of the 3 fragments and a corrected rendering of the word “BYTDWD” – not “House of David” but a place-name meaning “House of Praise”.

“The desire to read the letters bytdvd as house of david is … a classic example of scholars working backwards from the Bible rather than forwards from the evidence.”

– M. Sturgis, It Ain’t Necessarily So, p129.

Ivory pomegranate ‘not Solomon’s’

An ancient ivory pomegranate thought to be the only relic of King Solomon’s Temple is from a different period, the Israel Museum in Jerusalem has said.

Now officials say the Hebrew inscription was only added to the pomegranate recently

AND EVIDENCE OF REWRITTING IN THE ORIGINAL SOURCES

In identifying these two sources, two separate accounts can be reconstructed. The anti-monarchical source describes Samuel (thought by a number of scholars to be a cipher for God himself) to have thoroughly routed the Philistines, yet begrudgingly accepting that the people demanded a ruler, and thus appointing Saul by cleromancy. The pro-monarchical source describes the divine birth of Saul (a single word being changed by a later editor so that it referred to Samuel instead), and his later leading of an army to victory over the Ammonites, which resulted in the people clamouring for him to lead them against the Philistines, whereupon he is appointed king

SO WHAT WAS REALLY GOING ON DURING THE AGE OF ISRAEL AND THE MYTHICAL UNITED MONARCHY
THE EFFECTS OF THE EXPULSION OF SET FROM EGYPT
NORTH CANAAN BECOMES CANAANITE MALE FERTILITY BAAL
SOUTH CANAAN BECOMES EGYPTIAN SHASU AMEN-RA/SET BAAL/YHW INFLUENCED

WE SEE THE ANCIENT POLYTHEISTIC HEBREWS WHERE HAPPY TO WORSHIP BA’AL AND YHW ,OF COURSE THIS WOULD GET A POLITICAL SPIN IN THE LATER MONOTHEISTIC RE-WRITTING
BAAL WAS THE CANAANITE NAME FOR THE EGYPTIAN SET
IT SEEMS LATER A SHASU(EGYPTIAN AMEN/SET WORSHIPERS) “YWA” CULT FROM JUDEA MAKE A FAILED BID TO IMPOSE THEIR AUTHORITY OVER CANAAN
At first the name Baʿal was used by the Jews for their God without discrimination
, but as the struggle between the two religions developed, the name Baʿal was given up in Judaism as a thing of shame, and even names like Jerubbaʿal were changed to Jerubbosheth: Hebrew bosheth means “shame”.

The Priests of Baʿal are mentioned in the Hebrew Bible numerous times.

(1 Kings 16:31 relates that Ahab, king of Israel, married Jezebel, daughter of Ethba’al, king of the Sidonians, and then served habba’al (‘the Baʿal’.) The cult of this god was prominent in Israel until the reign of Jehu, who put an end to it (2 Kings 10:26):

Some scholars claim it is uncertain whether “Baʿal” the Lord in Kings 10:26 refers to Melqart. They point out that Hadad was also worshipped in Tyre. This point of view ignores the possibility that Hadad and Melqart are the same god with different names because of different languages and cultures, Hadad being Canaanite and Melqart being Phoenician.

Josephus (Antiquities 8.13.1) states clearly that Jezebel “built a temple to the god of the Tyrians, which they call Belus” which certainly refers to the Baal of Tyre, or Melqart.

THERE IS EVIDENCE OF HABIRU BANDITS WITH NAMES LIKE DAVID ,SAUL AND JOSHUA
THEY COME FROM EGYPT AND INVADED CANAAN
THESE ARE THE SET WORSHIPERS LEAVING EGYPT FOR CANAAN, THE LAND OF SET

The name Edom means “red” in Hebrew.It comes from Egyptian where Red is the colour of Set.Canaan is the land of Set and Edom specifically is the Egyptian followers of Set,given to Esau,(Shasu are the Egyptians that live in the Edom) the elder son of the Hebrew patriarch Isaac, at the fact he was born “red all over”.The Torah, Tanakh and New Testament thus describe the Edomites as descendants of Esau.
Scholars pointed out similarities to Biblical accounts of Hebrews (i.e. `BRY (adj. form of the Hebrew ‘Eber’) putting people under the ban as they moved along the route of the kings highway through Edom and Moab into the territory of Ammon, Aram and the Amurru and realized that those records seemed to provide independent confirmation of the invasion of Canaan by Habiru fighting under Joshua, Saul, and David.

ISRAEL IS MADE FROM CANAAANITE SLAVES ,HABIRU BANDITS AND FLEEING EGYPTIANS(SHASU)

Research into settlement patterns suggests that the ethnogenesis of Israel as a people was a complex process involving mainly native pastoralist groups in Canaan (perhaps including Habiru and Shasu), with some infiltration from outside groups such as Hittites and Arameans from the north, as well as southern Shasu groups such as the Kenites- some of whom may have come from areas controlled by Egypt. Genetically, Palestinian Jews show closest connections with Kurdish people and other groups from Northern Iraq, suggesting that this is the area from which most of their ancestors originally came – a fact confirmed archaeologically from the Khirbet Kerak period down to the end of the Middle Bronze Age period, with the spread of the Hurrians (Biblical Horites), and in the Early Iron Age I period with the spread of Shasu (=Egyptian) and Ahlamu (=Assyrian Akkadian, i.e.wandering Aramaeans).

These semites (speakers of a tongue common to Syrians, Arabs and Mesopotamians) took up migratory occupation of the less fertile hill-country of the interior. Neither their limited sub-culture – an illiterate donkey nomadism; nor their social organisation – patriarchal and authoritarian – distinguished them from other tent-dwelling pastoralists. These early, polytheistic, Hebrews scratched an existence in an unpromising land on the fringes of the major civilisations

It seems as if they were joined, over time,by outcasts or refugees from the more sophisticated Canaanite (Phoenician) coastal cities. ‘Israel emerged peacefully and gradually from within Canaanite society ‘ concluded Karen Armstrong, the noted religious scholar. (A History of Jerusalem, p23]

“MAN OF BAAL” RULES “PROTO-ISRAEL”

AT THIS TIME ISRAEL IS PROBABLY JUST WANDERING TRIBES

According to the Hebrew Bible, Ish-bosheth Ashbaal or Ishbaal, was one of the four sons of King Saul, born c. 1047 BC. Ish-bosheth was chosen as the second king over the Kingdom of Israel, which then consisted of all the twelve tribes of the Israelites,Critical scholarship suggests that Bosheth was a substitute for Ba’al, beginning when Ba’al became an unspeakable word; as (in the opposite direction) Adonai became substituted for the ineffable Tetragrammaton

Egyptologist David Rohl identified Ishbaal with Mutbaal of the Amarna Letters. Both names have the same meaning, “Man of Baal.” Both fathers (Saul, Labaya) had their capitals west of the Jordan, but their sons had their center of power in Transjordan.

AND BAAL,AS WE ALREADY KNOW, IS THE EGYPTIAN GOD SET.

Mut, which meant mother in the ancient Egyptian language.She was considered a primal deity, associated with the waters from which everything was born through parthenogenesis.Mut was a title of the primordial waters of the cosmos, Naunet, in the Ogdoad cosmogony during what is called the Old Kingdom She also was depicted as a woman with the crowns of Egypt upon her head.

The rulers of Egypt each supported her worship in their own way to emphasize their own authority and right to rule through an association with Mut.

Kushite pharaohs expanded the Mut temple and modified the Ramesses temple for use as the shrine of the celebrated birth of Amun and Khonsu, trying to integrate themselves into divine succession.

WITH HORUS RULING EGYPT AND SET RULING CANAAN
THE SET VERSES HORUS BATTLE IS OVER
A NEW POWER STRUGGLE BETWEEN THE HIGH PRIESTS OF THEBES IN THE SOUTH
AND THE PHARAOHS OF THE NILE DELTA IN THE NORTH
PHARAOH VERSES HIGH PRIESTS
Even in Ramesses XI’s day, the Twentieth dynasty of Egypt was losing its grip on power in the city of Thebes, whose priests were becoming increasingly powerful. After his death, his successor Smendes I ruled from the city of Tanis, but was mostly active only in Lower Egypt which they controlled. Meanwhile, the High Priests of Amun at Thebes effectively ruled Middle and Upper Egypt in all but name.However, this division was less significant than it seems, since both priests and pharaohs came from the same family.Nesibanebdjedet (Smendes) may have been a son of a lady named Hrere. Hrere was a Chief of the Harem of Amun-Re and likely the wife of a high priest of Amun.Nesibanebdjedet (Smendes) was married to Tentamun B, likely a daughter of Ramesses IX. They may have been the parents of his successor Amenemnisu.
Smendes features prominently in the Report of Wenamun, dated to Year 5 of the Renaissance or Whm Mswt era (or Year 23 proper of Ramesses XI), as a person of the highest importance. Wenamun states here that he had to visit Tanis and personally present his letters of accreditation to Smendes in order to receive the latter’s permission to travel north to modern Lebanon and procure precious cedar wood for use in the Great Temples of Amun at Thebes. Smendes responded by dispatching a ship for Wenamun’s travels to Syria and the Levant.
1077BC 943BC THE 21ST DYNASTY IN EGYPT
AN EGYPTIAN DYNASTY DEDICATED TO AMEN
PHARAOHS RULED NORTH EGYPT AND THE LEVANT(CANAAN/PROTO-ISRAEL)
WHILE THE PRIESTS OF AMEN RULED CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN EGYPT
THE PHARAOHS THAT RULED PROTO-ISRAEL
FOUNDED BY “HE OF THE RAM LORD” ,IN “THE DOMAIN OF THE RAM LORD”
Hedjkheperre Setepenre Smendes was the founder of the Twenty-first dynasty of Egypt and succeeded to the throne after burying Ramesses XI in Lower Egypt – territory which he controlled. His Egyptian nomen or birth name was actually Nesbanebdjed meaning “He of the Ram, Lord of Mendes
Mendes (Μένδης), the Greek name of the Ancient Egyptian city of Djedet, also known in Ancient Egypt as Per-Banebdjedet (“The Domain of the Ram Lord of Djedet”) and Anpet, is known today as Tell El-Ruba (Arabic: تل الربع‎).In ancient times, Mendes was a famous city that attracted the notice of most ancient geographers and historians, including Herodotus (ii. 42, 46. 166), Diodorus (i. 84), Strabo (xvii. p. 802), Mela (i. 9 § 9), Pliny the Elder (v. 10. s. 12), Ptolemy (iv. 5. § 51), and Stephanus of Byzantium (s. v.). The city was the capital of the Mendesian nome, situated at the point where the Mendesian arm of the Nile (Μενδήσιον στόμα, Scylax, p. 43; Ptol. iv, 5. § 10; Mendesium ostium, Pliny, Mela, ll. cc.) flows into the lake of Tanis.
TANIS THE ROYAL CITY (ZOAN)
The pharaohs of the Twenty-First Dynasty ruled from Tanis,(Greek name for Dzann, Biblical Zoan)but were mostly active only in Lower Egypt which they controlled. This dynasty is described as ‘Tanite’ because its political capital was based at Tanis. Meanwhile, the High Priests of Amun at Thebes effectively ruled Middle and Upper Egypt in all but name. The later Egyptian Priest Manetho of Sebennytos states in his Epitome on Egyptian royal history that “the 21st Dynasty of Egypt lasted for 130 years”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twenty-first_Dynasty_of_Egypt

THE HOLY CITY OF TANIS ,THE THEBES OF LOWER EGYPT (THE NORTH)
THE UNITED MONARCHY (THE TWO KINGDOMS OF THEBES AND TANIS)
Tanis was a city in ancient Egypt and served as a parallel religious center to Thebes in the Third Intermediate Period.The chief deities of Tanis were Amun, his consort, Mut, and their child Khonsu, forming the Tanite triad. This triad was, however, identical to that of Thebes, leading many scholars to speak of Tanis as the “northern Thebes”.
THE STAR APPEARING IN THE CITY OF ZOAN (THE NEW AVARIS)
No archaeological evidence from Tanis pre-dates the reign of Psusennes I (1039-991 BC, 21st Dynasty)
Psusennes I, or [Greek ???s?????], Pasibkhanu or Hor-Pasebakhaenniut I [Egyptian ?or-p3-sib3-???--niwt] was the third king of the Twenty-first dynasty of Egypt who ruled from Tanis (Greek name for Dzann, Biblical Zoan) between 1047 – 1001 BC. Psusennes is the Greek version of his original name Pasebakhaenniut which means “The Star Appearing in the City” while his throne name, Akheperre Setepenamun, translates as “Great are the Manifestations of Ra, chosen of Amun.”
Tanis’s creation was most likely due to the silting up of the Nile branch that ran by Pi-Ramesses, which forced people to seek another area with access to water. Later on, Tanis would become known as Thebes of Lower Egypt and became the northern capital of Egypt during the following Twenty-first Dynasty. It was the home city of Smendes, founder of the 21st dynasty. During the Twenty-second Dynasty Tanis remained as Egypt’s political capital (though there were sometimes rival dynasties located elsewhere in Upper Egypt).The kings at Tanis saw themselves as the legitimate successors on the throne of Upper and Lower Egypt. They used traditional titles and displayed their royalty in building work, although that was insignificant when compared to activity at the height of the New Kingdom
Tanis was an important commercial and strategic city until it was threatened with inundation by Lake Manzala in the 6th century AD, when it was finally abandoned.
There are ruins of a number of temples, including the chief temple dedicated to Amun, and a very important royal necropolis of the Third Intermediate Period (which contains the only known intact royal Pharaonic burials)
In 1866, Karl Richard Lepsius discovered at Tanis the Decree of Canopus — an inscription closely related to the Rosetta Stone, which was likewise written in Egyptian (hieroglyphic and demotic) and Greek.
AMEN RULES EGYPT
Amun represented the essential and hidden, whilst in Ra he represented revealed divinity. As the creator deity “par excellence”,he was the champion of the poor and central to personal piety. Amun was self created, without mother and father .His position as King of Gods developed to the point of virtual monotheism where other gods became manifestations of him. With Osiris, Amun-Ra is the most widely recorded of the Egyptian gods.
THE DUAL RULE OF AMEN-RA AND AMEN(-MIN)
THE FESTIVAL OF OPET
Pharaoh Amenemope (prenomen: Usermaatre) was the son of Psusennes I. Amenemope/Amenemopet’s birth name or nomen translates as “Amun in the Opet Festival.”
The Beautiful Feast of Opet (or Opet Festival) was an Ancient Egyptian festival, celebrated annually in Thebes, during the New Kingdom period and later in time. The statues of the gods of the Theban Triad — Amun, Mut and their child Khonsu — were escorted in a joyous procession, though hidden from sight in a sacred barque, from the temple of Amun in Karnak, to the temple of Luxor, a journey of around 2 miles, in a marital celebration. The highlight of the ritual is the meeting of Amun-Re of Karnak with the Amun of Luxor. Rebirth is a strong theme of Opet and there is usually a re-coronation ceremony of the pharaoh.
In earlier celebrations of the opet festival, the statues of the god proceeded down the avenue of sphinxes that connect the two temples, stopping at specially constructed chapels en route.These chapels would have been filled with offerings, providing for the gods themselves and the attending priests. At the end of the ceremonies in the Luxor Temple, the barques journeyed back by boat to Karnak.In later celebrations, the statues would be transported both to and from Karnak/Luxor by boat.The festival was celebrated in the second month of Akhet, the season of the flooding of the Nile.
A royal barque also sailed with the gods’ vessel, and the ceremonies in the ‘Chamber of the Divine King’ would reenact the coronation ceremonies and thus confirm kingship.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Opet_Festival

“in Thebes, his authority as king was undisputed–no less than nine burials of the Theban clergy had braces, pendants or bandages inscribed with the name of Amenemope as pharaoh and of Pinedjem as pontiff. Pen-nest-tawy, captain of the barge of Amun in Thebes, possessed a Book of the Dead dated to Year 5 of this king’s reign.”

SIAMUN ,SON OF AMEN c.986BC -967BC
SIAMUN NOT SOLOMON IS RULER OF THE LEVANT (PROTO-ISRAEL)
Siamun’s prenomen, Netjerkheperre-Setepenamun, means “Like a God is The Manifestation of Re, Chosen of Amun” while his name means ‘son of Amen.’
On the basis of a Year 17 the first month of Shemu day [lost] inscription in fragment 3B, lines 3-5 dated to pharaoh Siamun from the Karnak Priestly Annals.It records the induction of Hori, son of Nespaneferhor into the Priesthood at Karnak.Year 17 of Siamun has been shown by the German Egyptologist Rolf Krauss to be equivalent to 970 BC. Hence, Siamun would have taken the throne about 16 years earlier in 986 BC.A stela dated to Siamun’s Year 16 records a land-sale between some minor priests of Ptah at Memphis.
SIAMUN THE FIRST PHARAOH
The Year 17 inscription is an important palaeographical development because it is the first time in Egyptian recorded history that the word pharaoh was employed as a title and linked directly to a king’s royal name: as in Pharaoh Siamun here. Henceforth, references to Pharaoh Psusennes II (Siamun’s successor), Pharaoh Shoshenq I, Pharaoh Osorkon I, and so forth become commonplace. Prior to Siamun’s reign and all throughout the Middle and New Kingdom, the word pharaoh referred only to the office of the king.
PHARAOH SIAMUN CONTROLLED THE LEVANT
Under Siamun, Egypt embarked upon an active foreign policy and he is the Pharaoh who would of formed an alliance with the fictious biblical new ruler of Israel, King Solomon against the Philistines.The ficticious biblical Solomon, the son of David, had just assumed power around 971 or 970 BC which was certainly around the middle of Siamun’s reign.
NO RECORD OF SOLOMON OR A TEMPLE OF SOLOMON OR AN ISRAELI EMPIRE OR A MARRIGE OF A DAUGHTER TO AN ISRAELI KING
unfortunately there is no record of Solomon or his Israeli empire in Pharaoh Siamun’s Egyptian records.
According to the French Egyptologist Nicolas Grimal, Siamun doubled the size of the Temple of Amun at Tanis and initiated various works at the Temple of Horus at Mesen.He also built at Heliopolis and at Piramesse where a surviving stone block bears his name.Siamun constructed and dedicated a new temple to Amun at Memphis with 6 stone columns and doorways which bears his royal name. Finally, he bestowed numerous favours onto the Memphite Priests of Ptah. In Upper Egypt, he generally appears eponymously on a few Theban monuments although Siamun’s High Priest of Amun at Thebes, Pinedjem II, organised the removal and re-burial of the New Kingdom royal mummies from the Valley of the Kings in several hidden mummy caches at Deir El-Bahari Tomb DB320 for protection from looting. These activities are dated from Year 1 to Year 10 of Siamun’s reign.
One fragmentary but well known surviving triumphal relief scene from the Temple of Amun at Tanis depicts an Egyptian pharaoh smiting his enemies with a mace. The king’s name is explicitly given as [(Neterkheperre Setepenamun) Siamun, beloved of Am(un)] in the relief and there can be no doubt that this person was Siamun as the eminent British Egyptologist, Kenneth Kitchen stresses in his book, On the Reliability of the Old Testament.Thus, Kitchen concludes Siamun’s foes were the Philistines who were descendants of the Aegean based Sea Peoples and that Siamun was commemorating his recent victory over them at Gezer by depicting himself in a formal battle scene relief at the Temple in Tanis. More recently Paul S Ash has put forward a detailed argument that Siamun’s relief portrays a fictitious battle.He also argues that there is nothing in the relief to connect it with Philistia or the Levant

THE PRIEST KING OF UPPER AND LOWER EGYPT AND THE LEVANT
HIGH PRIEST OF AMEN AND PHARAOH
THE STAR OF THE CITY OF ZOAN II
PSUSENNES II 967 – 943 BC
Titkheperure or Tyetkheperre Psusennes II [Greek ???s?????] or Hor-Pasebakhaenniut II [Egyptian ?r-p3-sb3-???--n?wt], was the last king of the Twenty-first dynasty of Egypt. His royal name means “Image of the transformations of Re” in Egyptian. Psusennes II is often considered the same person as the High-Priest of Amun known as Psusennes III.The Egyptologist Karl Jansen-Winkeln notes that an important graffito from the Temple of Abydos contains the complete titles of a king Tyetkheperre Setepenre Pasebakhaenniut Meryamun “who is simultaneously called the HPA (ie. High Priest of Amun) and supreme military commander.”This suggests that Psusennes was both king at Tanis and the High Priest in Thebes at the same time meaning he did not resign his office as High Priest of Amun during his reign
“the evidence weighs heavily in favour of his (ie. Psusennes III) being one and the same man, who was first HP and then successor to King Siamun in Tanis, without giving up his Theban office.”

PHAROAH SHOSHENQ I C943-922

ANOTHER BIBLICAL PHAROAH
AND A NEW LIBYAN PHARAONIC DYNASTY TAKES EGYPT AND THE LEVANT
THIS DYNASTY SUPPORTS RA
THE 22ND DYNASTY ESTABLISHES ITSELF
The kings of the Twenty-Second Dynasty of Egypt were a series of Meshwesh Libyans who ruled from c. 943 BC until 720 BC. The 22nd dynasty is also known as the Bubastite Dynasty, since the pharaohs originally ruled from the city of Bubastis. Bubastis “House of Bast” served as the capital of the nome of Am-Khent, the Bubastite nome, the 18th nome of Lower Egypt. Bubastis was situated southwest of Tanis, upon the eastern side of the Pelusiac branch of the Nile. The nome and city of Bubastis were allotted to the Calasirian division of the Egyptian war-caste.In the biblical Book of Ezekiel 30:17, the town appears in the Hebrew form Pibeseth
Bubastis was a center of worship for the feline goddess Bast .Bastet was a goddess in ancient Egyptian religion, worshipped as early as the Second Dynasty (2890 BC). As Bast, she was the goddess of warfare in Lower Egypt, the Nile River delta region.During the Twenty-Second Dynasty (c. 945–715 BC), Bast had changed from a lioness warrior deity into a major protector deity represented as a cat.As protector, she was seen as defender of the pharaoh, and consequently of the later chief male deity, Ra, who was also a solar deity, gaining her the titles Lady of Flame and Eye of Ra.Bast also fought an evil snake named Apep,in the 22nd Dynasty Set now represented Apep the snake. In Upper Egypt, Sekhmet was the parallel warrior lioness deity to Bast.The cat was the sacred and peculiar animal of Bast, who is represented with the head of a cat or a lioness and frequently accompanies the deity Ptah in monumental inscriptions.The most distinguished features of the city and nome of Bubastis were its oracle of Bast, the splendid temple of that goddess and the annual procession in honor of her.The festival of Bubastis was the most joyous and gorgeous of all in the Egyptian calendar as described by Herodotus.
SHESHONQ TAKES CONTROL OF THEBES
Libyan concepts of rule allowed for the parallel existence of leaders who were related by marriage and blood. Sheshonq(k) and his immediate successors used that practice to consolidate their grasp on all of Egypt. Sheshonq terminated the hereditary succession of the high priesthood of Amun. Instead he and his successors appointed men to the position, most often their own sons, a practice that lasted for a century.He assigned his second son, Iuput A, the prominent position of High Priest of Amun at Thebes as well as the title of Governor of Upper Egypt and Commander of the Army to consolidate his authority over the Thebaid. Shoshenq I designated his third son, Nimlot B, as the “Leader of the Army” at Herakleopolis in Middle Egypt
c940 SHOSHENQ CONQUERS CLAIMED ISRAELLITE CITIES
Hedjkheperre Setepenre Shoshenq I (Egyptian ššnq), (reigned c.943-922 BCE) — also known as Sheshonk or Sheshonq I (for discussion of the spelling, see Shoshenq) — was a Meshwesh king of Egypt and the founder of the Twenty-second Dynasty. Of ancient Libyan ancestry, Shoshenq I was the son of Nimlot A, Great Chief of the Ma, and his wife Tentshepeh A, a daughter of a Great Chief of the Ma herself.His ancestors had settled in Egypt during the late New Kingdom, probably at Herakleopolis Magna, called Henen-nesut, Nen-nesu, or Hwt-nen-nesu in ancient Egyptian, meaning ‘house of the royal child.’ Shoshenq I had been the Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Army, and chief advisor to his predecessor Psusennes II, as well as the father-in-law of Psusennes’ daughter Maatkare. He also held his father’s title of Great Chief of the Ma or Meshwesh. He is perhaps mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as Shishaq, and his exploits are carved on the Bubastite Portal at Karnak.The Meshwesh (often abbreviated in ancient Egyptian as Ma) were an ancient Libyan tribe from beyond Cyrenaica where the Libu and Tehenu lived. Herodotus may have placed them in Tunisia and said of them to be sedentary farmers living in settled permanent houses. He also added them to be partly descended from Trojan refugees.
Herodotus (1.46) used ??ß?? Libue to indicate the African continent; the Libues proper were the light-skinned North Africans, while those south of the Ancient Egypt (and Elephantine on the Nile) were known to him as “Aethiopians”;this was also the understanding of later Greek geographers such Diodorus, Strabo, Pliny the Elder,etc.
SHOSHENQ I LED A MILITARY CAMPAIGN ALL THE WAY TO LEBENON
ALL THIS SHOWS THAT THE LEVANT AND THEBES HAD TO BE RECONQUERED BY THE 22ND DYNASTY
He pursued an aggressive foreign policy in the adjacent territories of the Middle East, towards the end of his reign. This is attested, in part, by the discovery of a statue base bearing his name from the Lebanese city of Byblos, part of a monumental stela from Megiddo bearing his name, and a list of cities in the region comprising Syria, Philistia, Phoenicia, the Negev and the claimed biblical Kingdom of Israel, among various topographical lists inscribed on the walls of temples of Amun at al-Hibah and Karnak. Unfortunately there is no mention of either an attack nor tribute from Jerusalem. The fragment of a stela bearing his cartouche from Megiddo has been interpreted as a monument Shoshenq erected there to commemorate his victory. Some of these conquered cities include the claimed Ancient Israelite fortresses such as Megiddo, Taanach and Shechem.

NO MENTION OF A KINGDOM OF ISRAEL c940BC

NO MENTION OF JERUSELUM OR SOLOMON OR HIS TEMPLE IN EGYPTIAN RECORDS

There are other problems with Sheshonq being the same as the biblical Shishak: Sheshonq’s Karnak list does not include Jerusalem—his biggest prize according to the Bible. His list focuses on places either north or south of Judah, as if he did not raid the center. The fundamental problem facing historians is establishing the aims of the two accounts and linking up the information in them.

As an addendum to his foreign policy, Sheshonq I carved a report of campaigns in Nubia and Palestine, with a detailed list of conquests in Palestine. This is the first military action outside Egypt formally commemorated for several centuries

EGYPTIAN PROTO-ISRAEL

A SEMI NOMADIC PRIMITIVE MALE FERTILITY CULT

“THE TEMPLE” ON TEMPLE MOUNT WOULD BE NOTHING MORE THAN SOME STANDING STONES

“And he set up the pillars in the porch of the temple: … the right pillar, called Jachin, and the left pillar, called Boaz.” – 2 Kings 7.21.

“An altar of earth thou shalt make unto me … And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.” – Exodus 20:24,25.

The semi-nomadic pastoralists of the Levant – proto-Jews and Canaanites alike – marked their sanctuaries and cult centres with large stones, not mediaeval-style cathedrals. It was the obvious choice of early peoples throughout much of the world. The “theology” was not complex, nor dissimilar to that of any pagan sanctuary. The invoked god, honoured by a megalith or cairn in a chosen spot, took up residence in or about the commemorative structure and the place became sacred.

The Israelites adopted the practice of erecting standing stones and continued to worship at “pillars” throughout their history. Only after contact with their more civilized neighbours – Assyria and Babylon – did they copy the more sophisticated temple-style sanctuary.

The Bible actually relates that all the major Jewish heroes followed the practice of erecting, anointing and sacrificing at stones in “high places”:

“Abram … removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Bethel, and pitched his tent … and there he builded an altar and called upon the name of the LORD.” – Genesis 12.7-8.

“And Jacob rose up early in the morning, and took the stone that he had put for his pillows, and set it up for a pillar, and poured oil upon the top of it. And he called the name of that place Bethel.” – Genesis 28.18,19.

“Moses … got up early the next morning and built an altar at the foot of the mountain and set up twelve stone pillars representing the twelve tribes of Israel.” – Exodus 24.3-4.

“And those twelve stones, which they took out of Jordan, did Joshua pitch in Gilgal.” – Joshua 4.20.

“And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar.” – 1 Kings 3.4.

CANAANITE HEBREWS LEARN FROM THE PHONECIANS AS THE PHONECIAN CULTURE AND WRITING SPREAD INLAND

Christopher A. Rollston, a professor at Emmanuel School of Religion and a budding paleographer, flatly states his view that the Gezer calendar is written in Phoenician letters rather than Old Hebrew letters: “I believe that it [the Gezer calendar] is written in the Phoenician script.”11 For Rollston, there is no room for debate. At the Jerusalem forgery trial Rollston also testified that the Gezer calendar was written in Phoenician letters. “We have a distinctive Hebrew script; we have a distinctive Phoenician script,” he told the court. Features of one are “not mixed,” he said, with features of the other. “No paleographer would confuse an Old Hebrew inscription with Phoenician script,” he claimed.

The Gezer Calendar

The Gezer Calendar

Johns Hopkins University professor Kyle McCarter The Gezer calendar script, like the Tel Zayit abecedary, did develop from the Phoenician tradition, but it would be wrong to call it simply Phoenician. The Gezer calendar (and the Tel Zayit abecedary) represent “an inland development of the mature Phoenician tradition of the early Iron Age, but in the tenth century [B.C.E.]it already exhibits characteristics that anticipate the distinctive features of the mature Hebrew national script.”

Map of the Assyrian Empire

Map of the Assyrian Empire

The Neo-Assyrian Empire was an empire in Mesopotamian history which began in 934 BC and ended in 609 BC.During this period, Assyria assumed a position as the most powerful nation on earth,successfully eclipsing Babylonia, Egypt, Urartu/Armenia. Assyria was originally an Akkadian kingdom which evolved in the 25th to 24th Centuries BC.

Ashurnasirpal II (883–859 BC), embarked on a vast program of expansion, first conquering the peoples to the north as far as Nairi near Lake Van, then conquering the Aramaeans and Neo Hittites between the Khabur and the Euphrates.

Shalmaneser took the neo Hittite state of Carchemish in 849 BC, and in 841 BC marched an army against Hazael, King of Damascus, besieging the city and forcing tribute, but not taking it. He also brought under tribute Jehu of Israel, and the Phoenician states of Tyre, and Sidon. His black obelisk, discovered at Kalhu, records many military exploits of his reign

THE NEO ASSYRIAN EMPIRE FAILS TO DEFEAT KING HAZAEL OF ARAM DAMASCUS BUT TAKES ISRAEL

THE POLYTHEISTIC AND CANAANITE OMRIDES CREATE ISRAEL C850

SAMARIA ITS CAPITAL NOT JERUSALEM

Omri (Hebrew: עמרי, Modern Omri Tiberian ʻOmrî; short for Hebrew: עָמְרִיָּה, Modern Omriyya Tiberian ʻOmriyyā ; “The Lord is my life”) (fl. 9th century BC)a successful military campaigner, and the founder of the House of Omri, an Israelite royal house which included other monarchs such as Ahab, Ahaziah, Joram, and Athaliah.

The term Omrides or the House of Omri refers to Omri and his descendants (particularly Ahab), who were according to the Bible kings of ancient Israel. In the Bible, Omride rulers include Omri, Ahab, and Ahab’s sons Ahaziah and Jehoram, all kings of Israel, and Ahab’s daughter (or perhaps sister) Athaliah, who became queen of Judah.

Israel Finkelstein’s The Bible Unearthed presents the Omrides as responsible for its military power,building works, wealth, and peace in Israel and Judah that the Bible credits to the much earlier(fictional)kings David and Solomon. According to Finkelstein, the reason for this discrepancy is the religious bias of the Biblical authors against the Omrides for their polytheist views and support of the Canaanite religion.

Mentioned in the Hebrew Bible as well as other extra-biblical sources such as the Mesha stele and the Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III, Omri is also credited with the construction of Samaria and establishing it as his capital.

ISRAEL FALLS TO THE NEO ASSYRIANS 841BC

The “Black Obelisk of Shalmaneser III” is a black limestone Neo-Assyrian bas-relief sculpture from Nimrud (ancient Kalhu), in northern Iraq, commemorating the deeds of King Shalmaneser III (reigned 858-824 BC).

It is the most complete Assyrian obelisk yet discovered, and is historically significant because it is thought to display the earliest ancient depiction of a biblical figure – Jehu King of Israel. The traditional identification of “Yaw” as Jehu has been questioned by some scholars, who proposed that the inscription refers to another king, Jehoram of Israel.(BUT The reference to “YAW” definitely marks these Israelite kings as Canaanite and polytheistic!) Its reference to ‘Parsua’ is also the first known reference to the Persians.
The stele describes how Jehu brought or sent his tribute in or around 841 BC. Jehu severed Israel’s alliances with Phoenicia and became subject to Assyria

Black obelisk

Black obelisk

In 853 BC, at the hill top city of Qarqur in Syria, an alliance of petty Levantine kingdoms attempted to resist the advancing Assyrians. The ‘Kurkh Stela’ commemorates the Assyrian victory:

“I razed, destroyed and burned … 2,000 chariots, and 10,000 troops of Ahab, the Israelite …”

– Shalmaneser III

The Assyrians continued their advance in the next campaign season, defeating ‘Jehu,’ commemorated on the ‘Black Obelisk’.

Written in stone: Israel’s ‘Jehu, son of Omri’ falls to the ground before Shalmaneser III.

The second register from the top includes the earliest surviving picture of an Israelite: the Biblical Jehu, king of Israel. It describes how Jehu brought or sent his tribute in or around 841 BCE. Jehu severed Israel’s alliances with Phoenicia, and became subject to Assyria. The caption above the scene, written in Assyrian cuneiform, can be translated:

“The tribute of Jehu, son of Omri: I received from him silver, gold, a golden bowl, a golden vase with pointed bottom, golden tumblers, golden buckets, tin, a staff for a king [and] spears.”

THE FACT THAT A STAFF FOR A KING IS MENTIONED ,SUGGESTS EGYPTIAN SET INFLUENCE IN EARLY ISRAEL
THE BIBLICAL VERSION OF AN ISRAELLI EMPIRE IS A LIE

Shalmaneser’s artifacts confirm the existence of a small Israelite kingdom – but NOT of the biblical story:

2 Kings 9,10 has it that Jehu was not Omri’s son but an anointed assassin who had in fact murdered the ‘house of Omri’ on orders from Elisha!

Archaeology is unequivocal: there was never the wealth, population, political cohesiveness, or literacy in the tiny settlement around Jerusalem to have ever dominated its more developed northern neighbours.

KING OF MOAB RESISTS “NEO-ASSYRIAN ISRAELLI” EXPANSION C840

The Mesha Stele (also known as the “Moabite Stone”) is a stele (inscribed stone) set up around 840 BCE by King Mesha of Moab (a kingdom located in modern Jordan). Mesha tells how Kemosh, the God of Moab, had been angry with his people and had allowed them to be subjugated to Israel, but at length Kemosh returned and assisted Mesha to throw off the yoke of Israel and restore the lands of Moab. Mesha describes his many building projects.

ACTUALLY IT WAS KING HAZAEL AND HIS ARAM-DAMASCUS EMPIRE KICKING BUTT IN THE LEVANT AT THIS TIME

INCLUDING ISRAELLI BUTT!!

HAZAEL TAKES “NEO ASSYRIAN ISRAEL” C840

The Tel Dan Stele is a broken stele (inscribed stone) discovered in 1993-94 during excavations at Tel Dan in northern Israel. It consists of several fragments making up part of a triumphal inscription in Aramaic, left most probably by Hazael of Aram-Damascus, an important regional figure in the late 9th-century BCE.

The author of the inscription mentions conflict with the kings of Israel and the “House of David/Praise”

Hazael boasts of his victories over the king of Israel and his ally the king of the “House of David/Praise” (written as one word “bytdwd”),other possible meanings have been suggested: it may be a place-name, or the name of a god, or an epithet.But this interpretation of the fragments has been challenged, both by a realignment of the 3 fragments and a corrected rendering of the word “BYTDWD” – not “House of David” but a place-name meaning “House of Praise”.

“The desire to read the letters bytdvd as house of david is … a classic example of scholars working backwards from the Bible rather than forwards from the evidence.”

– M. Sturgis, It Ain’t Necessarily So, p129.

IF real it is the ONLY time the name David had been found outside of the Bible.

EVEN IF THE “HOUSE OF DAVID” WAS REAL AT THIS TIME.
AS CLEARLY DEMONSTRATED ,IT WOULD BE A “POLYTHEISTIC FERTILITY CULT” HOUSE OF DAVID

NO TEMPLE OF SOLOMON ,NO ISRAELI EMPIRE OF DAVID

The author tells how Israel had invaded his country in his father’s day, and how the god Hadad then made him king and marched with him against Israel.The author then reports that he defeated seventy kings with thousands of chariots and horses. In the very last line there is a suggestion of a siege, possibly of Samaria, the capital of the kings of Israel.

Tel Dan stela fragments

Tel Dan stela fragments

In contrast to its heroics and intrigues of “King David”, the Bible avoids mentioning Aram’s 9th century conquest of much of Israel. Dan, Hazor, Jezreel and Megiddo were among the cities destroyed.

“Around 835 and 800 BC the kingdom of Aram-Damascus controlled the upper Jordan valley and significant areas in northeastern Israel – and devastated major Israelite administrative centres in the fertile Jezreel valley as well.”

– Finkelstein, Silberman,The Bible Unearthed, p202.

Curiously, King Hazael of Aram-Damascus (844-803) enjoyed a 40-year reign – just like that ascribed to the biblical ‘David’ (and, for that matter, also to his son ‘Solomon’!). The existence of Hazael is not in doubt, whereas outside of the biblical texts, there is as yet NO historical proof of a Hebrew king named David ruling an ‘empire’.

David – Based on the King of Damascus

“Damascus reached its zenith during the reign of Hazael … Transjordanian regions were overrun … Hazael was able to cross Israelite territory to progress down the coastal plain to take Gath in Philistia …

In fact, Hazael appears to have established an empire or sphere of influence not unlike that ascribed to David.”

 Aramaean king Hazael


Aramaean king Hazael

The city of Methegammah (Tell es-Safi/ Gath) – hometown of Goliath! – was destroyed in the 9th century BC, not the 10th, and apparently after a siege.

According to archaeologists of Bar-Ilan University, the conqueror was none other than Hazael, King of Aram-Damascus !

Hazael (his full name meaning, “God has seen”) was a court official and later an Aramean king who is mentioned in the Bible. Under his reign, Aram-Damascus became an empire that ruled over large parts of Syria and Palestine

During his approximately 37-year reign (c. 842 BC-805 BC), King Hazael led the Arameans in battle against the forces of King Jehoram of Israel and King Ahaziah of Judah. After defeating them at Ramoth-Gilead, Hazael repelled two attacks by the Assyrians, seized Israelite territory east of the Jordan, the Philistine city of Gath, and sought to take Jerusalem as well (2 Kings 12:17). A monumental Aramaic inscription discovered at Tel Dan is seen by most scholars as having being erected by Hazael, after he defeated the Kings of Israel and Judah. Recent excavations at Tell es-Safi/Gath have revealed dramatic evidence of the siege and subsequent conquest of Gath by Hazael. The destruction of the settlement at Tell Zeitah during the ninth century may also be the result of Hazael’s campaign. King Joash of Judah forestalled Hazael’s invasion by bribing him with treasure from the royal palace and temple, after which he disappears from the Biblical account.

Decorated bronze plaques from chariot horse-harness taken from Hazael, identified by their inscriptions, have been found as re-gifted votive objects at two Greek sites, the Heraion of Samos and in the temple of Apollo at Eretria on Euboea. The inscriptions read “that which Hadad gave to our lord Hazael from ‘Umq in the year that our lord crossed the River”.

The river must be the Orontes. The triangular front pieces show a “master of the animals” gripping inverted sphinxes or lions in either hand, and with deep-bosomed goddesses who cup their breasts and stand on the heads of lions. When Tiglath-Pileser III took Damascus in 733/2, these heirlooms were part of the loot that fell eventually into Greek, probably Euboean hands

740BC THE ASSYRIANS STILL RUN ISRAEL AND JUDAH GETS A FIRST MENTION…UNFORTUNATELY IT MENTIONS THEY GET DEPORTED

Tiglath-Pileser III (from the Hebraic form[Note 1] of Akkadian: Tukultī-apil-Ešarra, “my trust is in the son of Esharra”) was a prominent king of Assyria in the eighth century BCE (ruled 745–727 BCE) who introduced advanced civil, military and political systems into the Neo-Assyrian Empire

Tilglath_pileser_iii

Tilglath_pileser_iii

Tiglath-Pileser III subjugated much of the known world at the time; to the south, his fellow Mesopotamians in Babylonia and Chaldea, and further south still, the Arabs, Magan, Meluhha and Dilmunites of the Arabian Peninsula were conquered. In the south west, Israel, Judah, Philistia, Samarra, Moab, Edom, the Suteans and Nabatea fell. To the north, Urartu, Armenia and Scythia in the Caucasus Mountains, Cimmeria by the Black Sea, and Nairi were subjugated, and in the north west much of eastern and south western Asia Minor, including the Hittites, Phrygia, Cilicia, Commagene, Tabal, Corduenne and Caria. In the west, the Greeks of Cyprus and Aram (modern Syria), and the Mediterranean City States of Phoenicia/Caanan were subjugated. To the east he subjugated Persia, Media, Gutium, Mannea, Cissia and Elam, and later in his reign, Tiglath-Pileser III was crowned king in Babylonia.

Tiglath-Pileser III discouraged revolts against Assyrian rule with the use of forced deportations of thousands of people all over the empire. He is one of the greatest military captains in world history, conquering most of the world known to the Assyrians before his death.

Tiglath-Pileser III’s conquests and reforms led to the establishment of the Neo-Assyrian Kingdom as a true empire. He built a royal palace in Kalhu (the biblical Calah/Nimrud, the so-called “central palace”), later dismantled by Esarhaddon. He had his royal annals engraved across the bas-reliefs depicting his military achievements on the sculptured slabs decorating his palace.

On his death he was succeeded by his son Ululayu, who took the name Shalmaneser V and further campaigned in the Levant, defeated Egypt, and captured Samaria.

THE DEPORTATIONS CONTINUE UNDER ASSYRIAN RULE
689BC ISRAEL AND JUDAH ARE STILL ASSYRIAN VASSAL STATES

The prisms contain six paragraphs of cuneiform written Akkadian. They are hexagonal in shape, made of red baked clay, and stand 38.0 cm high by 14.0 cm wide, and were created during the reign of Sennacherib in 689 BC.The Taylor prism is thought to have been found by Colonel Robert Taylor (1790-1852) in 1830 Nineveh, which was the ancient capital of the Assyrian Empire under Sennacherib.
It is one of three accounts discovered so far which have been left by Sennacherib of his campaign against the Kingdom of Israel and Kingdom of Judah, giving a different perspective on these events from that of the Book of Kings in the Bible.

Some passages in the Old Testament agree with at least a few of the claims made on the prism. The Bible recounts a successful Assyrian attack on Samaria, as a result of which the population was deported, and later recounts that an attack on Lachish was ended by Hezekiah suing for peace, with Sennacherib demanding 300 talents of silver and 30 talents of gold, and Hezekiah giving him all the silver from his palace and from the Temple in Jerusalem, and the gold from doors and doorposts of the temple.

Taylor_Prism

Taylor_Prism

Compared to this, the Taylor Prism proclaims that 46 walled cities and innumerable smaller settlements were conquered by the Assyrians, with 200,150 people, and livestock, being deported, and the conquered territory being dispersed among the three kings of the Philistines instead of being given back. Additionally, the Prism says that Sennacherib’s siege resulted in Hezekiah being shut up in Jerusalem “like a caged bird”, Hezekiah’s mercenaries and ‘Arabs’ deserting him, and Hezekiah eventually buying off Sennacherib, having to give him antimony, jewels, ivory-inlaid furniture, his own daughters, harem, and musicians. It states that Hezekiah became a tributary ruler.

On Sennacherib’s prism, he says this of Hezekiah: “As for the king of Judah, Hezekiah, who had not submitted to my authority, I besieged and captured forty-six of his fortified cities, along with many smaller towns, taken in battle with my battering rams . . . I took as plunder 200,150 people, both small and great, male and female, along with a great number of animals including horses, mules, donkeys, camels, oxen, and sheep. As for Hezekiah, I shut him up like a caged bird in his royal city of Jerusalem. I then constructed a series of fortresses around him, and I did not allow anyone to come out of the city gates. His towns which I captured I gave to the kings of Ashod, Ekron, and Gaza.”

The tribute given by Hezekiah is then mentioned

JUDAH ,AN ASSYRIAN NEO-BABYLONIAN KINGDOM
Kingdom of Judah.
Nimrud Tablet K.3751, dated c.733 BCE, is the earliest known record of the name Judah (written in Assyrian cuneiform as Yaudaya or KUR.ia-ú-da-a-a).
The name originates from the neo-Babylonian and Persian name “Yehud” for the biblical tribe of Judah (Yehudah) and associated Kingdom of Judah.The name of the region continued to be incorporated through the Babylonian conquest, Persian, Hellenistic, and Roman periods as Babylonian Judea, Persian Judea, Hasmonean Judea, and consequently Herodian Judea and Roman Judea, respectively. As a consequence of the Bar Kokhba revolt, in 135 CE the region was renamed and merged with Roman Syria to form Syria Palaestina by the victorious Roman Emperor Hadrian.

KING JOSIAH OF JUDAH BRINGS A CENTRALISED RELIGIOUS AUTHORITY TO CANAAN
KING JOSIAH OF JUDAH ,A VASSAL KING TO ASSYRIA AND EGYPT, IMPOSES A RELIGIOUS CENTRALISED AUTHORITY C630BC
KING JOSIAH OF JUDAH IS PROBABLY OF SHASU EGYPTIAN INFLUENCE
IN REALITY JOSIAH IS TRYING TO IMPOSE A SHASU RELIGIOUS CENTRALISED “YWA””AMEN/SET” AUTHORITY ON A POLYTHEISTIC BAAL/ASTARTE/EL CANAAN

Josiah is credited by most historians with having established or compiled important Hebrew Scriptures during the Deuteronomic reform that occurred during his rule.
Historical-critical biblical scholarship generally accepts that this scroll — an early predecessor of the Torah — was written by the priests driven by ideological interest to centralize power under Josiah in the Temple in Jerusalem.

On the other hand, recent European theologians posit that most of the Torah and Deuteronomistic History was composed and its form finalized during the Persian period, several centuries later

Josiah became king of Judah at the age of eight, after the assassination of his father, King Amon(AMEN), and reigned for thirty-one years, from 641/640 to 610/609 BC

A BLOODBATH BEGINS AT THE SITE OF SOLOMONS TEMPLE
WHICH IS JUST A GROVE OF STANDING STONES DEDICATED TO BAAL AND ASTARTE AND OTHER PAGAN FERTILITY GODS
THE JUDEAN SHASU ATTEMPT TO IMPOSE RELIGIOUS AND POLITICAL AUTHORITY OVER CANAAN
An indication that standing stones and a “sacred grove” really graced Temple Mount is found in the campaign of desecration and murder so gleefully attributed by the books of Chronicles and Kings to king Josiah of Judah.

The regency of this young, 7th century BC king provided the priests of Yahwism with the opportunity to eradicate rivals to the Yahweh cult and at the same time impose an exclusive, Jerusalem-based theocracy. Even rural priests of the Yahweh cult were to be compelled into service with the sacerdotal hierarchy in Jerusalem.

Josiah “did that which was right in the sight of the LORD” and waged a fierce campaign of terror against rivals of Yahweh worship. Priests were murdered and burnt on their own altars, images were smashed, sacred groves destroyed and even the graves of children defiled. All God’s work.

The biblical account may well exaggerate the success of Yahwism’s violent program of religious purification but it certainly confirms that a plethora of gods, groves and altars in “high places” peppered the Palestinian landscape.

So tenacious was the appeal of other deities that even even after the iconoclasm of Josiah most of the kings of Judah continued to embrace a multiplicity of gods and even rebuilt the “high places”.

“But the high places were not taken away: the people still sacrificed and burnt incense in the high places.” – 2 Kings 12.3.

It seems that even the “house of the Lord” in Jerusalem was shared by a number of deities. Josiah’s brutal reformation apparently included an assault on a polytheistic cult centre on “Temple Mount” itself – apostasy had gone that far, despite Yahweh’s not infrequent intercession in Jewish affairs!

“And the king commanded … to bring forth out of the Temple of the LORD all the vessels that were made for Baal, and for the grove, and for all the host of heaven: and he burned them without Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron …

And he brought out the grove from the House of the LORD … and burned it at the brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people. And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove … ” – 2 Kings 23.4-20.

Whatever else, there is little to suggest that the Yahweh sanctuary ravaged by Josiah had much in common with the fabulous “Temple of Solomon” of later fame. The site evidently featured a grove and altars to Baal, Ashtoreth (Astarte/Ishtar) and other gods. To the priests of Yahweh this was surely “the mount of corruption” (2 Kings 23:13) – not the Mount of Olives.

Asherah

Asherah

Astarte figurines are found in ancient sites throughout the Levant. The ubiquitous Asherah worship – more popular than the vengeful god Yahweh

Why were the chosen people so reluctant to embrace the warrior god Yahweh? What was it that made the alternative gods so agreeable? The phallic symbolism of many standing-stones makes abundantly clear that much of the religious impulse was directed at fertility.

SO NO TEMPLE OF SOLOMON C600BC
BUT KING JOSIAH IS DEFEATED AND JUDAH ADDED TO THE EGYPTIAN EMPIRE C609
THEN NEO-BABYLONIAN EMPIRE C605

Josiah’s days of iconoclastic glory quickly passed. The Egyptian Pharaoh Nekau II moved his army north to assist his Assyrian ally against the rising power of Babylon and eliminated this minor Jewish king along the way. Judah returned to the Egyptian empire. But four years later, in 605 BC, Nekau was himself defeated and soon after Judah – and then Egypt itself – became provinces of a neo-Babylonian empire.

The Babylonian Captivity had a number of serious effects on Judaism and the Jewish culture, including changes to the Hebrew alphabet and changes in the fundamental practices and customs of the Jewish religion. This period saw the last high-point of Biblical prophecy in the person of Ezekiel, followed by the emergence of the central role of the Torah in Jewish life. according to many historical-critical scholars, it was edited and redacted during this time, and saw the beginning of the canonization of the Bible, which provided a central text for Jews. This process coincided with the emergence of scribes and sages as Jewish leaders (see Ezra and the Pharisees).

Religion Zoroastrianism

The impact of Cyrus the Great’s Edict of Restoration is mentioned in Judeo-Christian texts and the empire was instrumental in the spread of Zoroastrianism as far east as China.

sometimes known as First Persian Empire, was an Iranian empire in Western Asia, founded in the 6th century BCE by Cyrus the Great who overthrew the Median confederation. It expanded to eventually rule over significant portions of the ancient world which at around 500 BCE stretched from the Indus Valley in the east, to Thrace and Macedon on the northeastern border of Greece making it the biggest empire the world had yet seen. The Achaemenid Empire would eventually control Egypt as well. It was ruled by a series of monarchs who unified its disparate tribes and nationalities by constructing a complex network of roads.

Calling themselves the Pars after their original Aryan tribal name Parsa, Persians settled in a land which they named Parsua (Persis in Greek), bounded on the west by the Tigris River and on the south by the Persian Gulf. This became their heartland for the duration of the Achaemenid Empire. It was from this region that eventually Cyrus the Great (Cyrus II of Persia) would advance to defeat the Median, the Lydian, and the Babylonian Empires, opening the way for subsequent conquests into Egypt and Asia minor.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Achaemenid_Empire

Although older (roughly early first millennium BCE, see Zoroaster), Zoroastrianism only enters recorded history in the mid-5th century BCE. Herodotus’ The Histories (completed c. 440 BCE) includes a description of Greater Iranian society with what may be recognizably Zoroastrian features.Such as …

There is one universal and transcendental God, Ahura Mazda, the one Uncreated Creator to whom all worship is ultimately directed.

In the final renovation, all of creation — even the souls of the dead that were initially banished to “darkness” — will be reunited in Ahura Mazda.

At the end of time a savior-figure [a Saoshyant] will bring about a final renovation of the world, and in which the dead will be revived

THE MAGI (3 Wise Men etc..)

According to Herodotus i.101, the Magi were the sixth tribe of the Medians (until the unification of the Persian empire under Cyrus the Great, all Iranians were referred to as Mede or Mada by the peoples of the Ancient World), who appear to have been the priestly caste of the Mesopotamian-influenced branch of Zoroastrianism

After the overthrow of Babylonia by the Persian Empire, in 537 BCE the Persian ruler Cyrus the Great gave the Jews permission to return to their native land, and more than 40,000 are said to have availed themselves of the privilege, as noted in the Biblical accounts of Ezra, and Nehemiah. The Persians had a different political philosophy of managing conquered territories than the Babylonians or Assyrians: under the Persians, local personages were put into power to govern the local populace.

CYRUS THE GREAT ,A ZOROASTRIAN

PRACTICED RELIGIOUS TOLERANCE THROUGH HIS PERSIAN EMPIRE AND PROMOTED AYRAN BELIEFS

MANY DIVERSE ANCIENT ARYAN BELIEFS THRIVED

REDHEADED “CHOSEN ONES OF SET” GET REPLACED WITH ARYAN CASTE SYSTEM CHOSEN ONE. THANKS TO CYRUS THE GREAT.
THE JEWISH “CHOSEN ONE” IDEOLOGY COMES FROM ARYAN SUPREMACY AND CASTE SYSTEM BELIEFS, PASSED DOWN FROM CYRUS THE GREAT

Encyclopaedia Britannica: ” …the Sanskrit term arya (“noble” or “distinguished”), the linguistic root of the word (Aryan)…”

Vedic SanskritThe term Arya is used 36 times in 34 hymns in the Rigveda. According to Talageri (2000, The Rig Veda. A Historical Analysis) “the particular Vedic Aryans of the Rigveda were one section among these Purus, who called themselves Bharatas.” Thus it is possible, according to Talageri, that at one point Arya did refer to a specific tribe. “Brahma of glory is he to whom both the Aryans and the Dasas belong” (RV 8.8.9).

There is no universally accepted theory about the origins of the Indian caste system. The Indian classes and Iranian classes (“pistras”) show similarity, wherein the priests are Brahmins, the warriors are Kshatriya, the merchants are Vaishya, and the artisans are Shudras.

From the Bhakti school, the view is that castes were originally created by Krishna. “According to the three modes of material nature and the work associated with them, the four divisions of human society are created.”

Although generally identified with Hinduism, the castee system was also observed among followers of other religions in the Indian subcontinent, including some groups of Muslims and Christians,most likely due to inherited cultural traits. Theoretically, all foreigners are considered to be casteeless and hence outcast; meaning that orthodox upper castee families would not touch or invite them to their homes

THE “JEWISH”RELIGIOUS CASTES

The historian Josephus relates the division of the Jews of the Second Temple period into three orders: the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and the Essenes. The Sadducees included mainly the priestly and aristocratic families; the Pharisees constituted the Jay circles; and the Essenes were a separatist group, part of which formed an ascetic monastic community that retreated to the wilderness. The exact political and religious affinities of each of these groups, as well as their development and interrelationships, are still relatively obscure and arc the source of widely disparate scholarly views

The Cyrus Cylinder (Persian: منشور کوروش‎) is an ancient clay cylinder, now broken into several fragments, on which is written a declaration in Akkadian cuneiform script in the name of the Persia’s Achaemenid king Cyrus the Great. It dates from the 6th century BC and was discovered in the ruins of Babylon in Mesopotamia (modern Iraq) in

The text on the Cylinder praises Cyrus, sets out his genealogy and portrays him as a king from a line of kings. The Babylonian king Nabonidus, who was defeated and deposed by Cyrus, is denounced as an impious oppressor of the people of Babylonia and his low-born origins are implicitly contrasted to Cyrus’s kingly heritage.

It extols Cyrus as a benefactor of the citizens of Babylonia who improved their lives, repatriated displaced people and restored temples and cult sanctuaries, the text identifies only Mesopotamian sanctuaries, and makes no mention of Jews, Jerusalem, or Judea.

CYRUS THE GREAT ATTEMPTS TO REBUILD THE KNOWN WORLD IN HIS “MONOTHEISTIC” IMAGE

IT IS AT THIS STAGE WITH THE REWRITING THAT TOOK PLACE THAT WE END UP WITH THE JUDAIC MONOTHISISM TORAH/OLD TESTAMENT WE KNOW TODAY

THIS REWRITTING WOULD BE BASED ON THE ORIGINAL CANONICAL BOOK

THE VEDAS

The Sanskrit word véda “knowledge, wisdom” is derived from the root vid- “to know”. This is reconstructed as being derived from the Proto-Indo-European root *u̯eid-, meaning “see” or “know”

The Vedas (Sanskrit véda वेद, “knowledge”) are a large body of texts originating in ancient India. Composed in Vedic Sanskrit, the texts constitute the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature.Hindus consider the Vedas to be apauruṣeya (“not of human agency”).They are supposed to have been directly revealed, and thus are called śruti (“what is heard”). The Vedic texts or śruti are organized around four canonical collections of metrical material known as Saṃhitās,

It is one of the oldest extant texts in any Indo-European language. Philological and linguistic evidence indicate that the Rigveda was composed in the north-western region of the Indian subcontinent, most likely between c. 1500–1200 BCE,though a wider approximation of c. 1700–1100 BCE has also been given.

Some writers out of the mainstream claim to trace astronomical references in the Rigveda, dating it to as early as 4,000 BC, a date well within the Indian Neolithic.

YHWH IS BORN

YHWH “I AM WHO I AM”

Exodus 3:14 (New International Version)

14 God said to Moses, “I am who I am .This is what you are to say to the Israelites: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’ “

The Complete Jewish Bible by author David H. Stern, proposes that the Tetragrammaton be pronounced letter for letter in Hebrew and that the name of God should be rendered by spelling out the four letters, “Yud He Vav He”, the meaning assumed to be “I am that I am” or “I am Who I am”, as revealed to Moses in the Torah

“I AM” A TITLE FOR SHIVA

In Vedic Sanskrit “I AM” is a title of Shiva ,as in “I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds” Shiva the destroyer.

verse 32 from chapter 11 of the Bhagavad Gita

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Now_i_am_become_death_destroyer_of_worlds

THE EXODUS/CREATION FABLE IS WRITTEN
Though the colourful story of the Hebrew Exodus from Egypt is known to everyone the legend itself is a complete fantasy, a re-write of a story learned in Babylon. In Exodus, Yahweh creates a people, not the cosmos:
“Instead of splitting the carcass of a sea-monster to create the world, as Marduk did, Yahweh divided the Sea of Reeds to let his people escape from Pharaoh and the pursuing army. Instead of slaying the demonic hordes, like Marduk, Yahweh drowned the Egyptians.”
– K. Armstrong, A History of Jerusalem, p31.
In the fantasy ‘history’ (chapter 1 of the Book of Numbers) 603,550 ‘males of military age’ fled Egypt at the time of the Exodus,this multitude supposedly wandered the wilderness for forty years, contriving to leave not a trace of their passing for posterity.

AND THE TALES OF SOLOMONS FANATSY TEMPLE AND DAVIDS FANTASY EMPIRE

SOLOMON MEANS PEACE

“It was at this time [the Babylonian exile] that some of the traditions associated with Solomon were also invented … In the biblical account the reign of Solomon is presented as a golden age of peace. His name in Hebrew – Shlomo – is written slm, the same three letters as also would be used to spell shalom or peace. It is at least possible that he is a story figure – an idealized version of an historical personage.” – Matthew Sturgis, p163.

PEACE FROM DIVINE WISDOM(DYEUS VID OR DAVID)

David Or “Dyeus Ved” in Vedic Sanskrit,would translate as “divine Shining Knowledge”.

Daniel was written during the 2nd century BC Maccabean revolt when various “beasts from the sea” posed a dire threat to Jewish intransigence.The yarn is actually based on a much earlier (14th century BC) Canaanite text found at Ugarit, Syria. This Tale of Aqhat stars Dan’il (dn’il), a righteous king and judge.
JERUSALEM ,A CITY TO A SYRIAN SUN GOD

Shalem was a Syrian sun god – later to be honoured in the name Jeru’salem

Jerusalem in 10th century BC had been barely a village of huts and cave dwellings. Kings David and Solomon are purely mythical characters – warrior/priest heroes, invented in the 6th century BC.

TALES OF A MONOTHEISTIC GOD THAT DWELLS IN THICK DARKNESS
…..AND DESIRES GOLD AND SILVER ARE WRITTEN IN BABYLON

A house for Yahweh ,a god that dwells in thick darkness.

“And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.” – Exodus 25.8.

God had very exacting requirements for his earthly residence. Bizarrely, he wrote his plans for the temple, including its dimensions and furnishings, onto David himself (1 Chronicles 28.19). This included a punctilious listing of candlesticks, bowls, shewbread tables, fleshhooks and even a “chariot of the cherubims” – all in pure gold, of course. Supposedly, this grandiose temple was actually built and, true to his promise, a godly presence took up residence:

“Then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD. So that the priests could not stand to minister by reason of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of God.” – 2 Chronicles 5.13,14.

“Then spake Solomon, The LORD said that He would dwell in the thick darkness. I have surely built thee an house to dwell in, a settled place for thee to abide in forever.” – 1 Kings 8.12,13.

Endless dynasty, endless gold?

“The silver is mine! And the gold is mine! said the LORD of hosts.” – Haggai 2.8.

YHWH NOW APPEARS WITH THE OLD STORIES REWRITTEN.

THE OLD GODS “SET AND BAAL” ARE REPLACED WITH “A ZOROASTRAIN MONOTHEISTIC GOD” AND “AMEN AND EL” ARE REPLACED BY A “ZOROASTRIAN UNIVERSAL UNCREATED CREATOR GOD” AHURA MAZDA (BUT STILL WITH THE SET/BAAL BAN ON MENTIONING HIS NAME.)

CYRUS THE GREAT IS THE MESSIAH

THE LAW OF GOD?

LOOK AT IT,IT’S A PACK OF LIES FROM THE LYING PEN OF SCRIBES

Jeremiah chapter 8 verse 8

DEUTERONOMY A FANATICAL RELIGIOUS WARRIOR CODE

“If your brother, son, daughter, wife or friend … say, Let us go and serve other gods …the gods of the people round about you… you shall surely kill him; your hand shall be first upon him to put him to death.” – Deuteronomy 13.6-10.

“‘When the LORD your God brings you into the land you are to possess and casts out the many peoples living there, you shall then slaughter them all and utterly destroy them…You shall make no agreements with them nor show them any mercy…You shall destroy their altars, break down their images, cut down their groves and burn their graven images with fire. For you are a holy people unto the LORD thy God and He has chosen you to be a special people above all others upon the face of the earth…’ –Book of Deuteronomy, 7:1-8″

The new scripture – Deuteronomy – introduced rules on everything from cross-dressing to war brides. Seventeen times the text warns against “going after false gods” and graven images. Fourteen times it makes reference to the exclusive privileges of the “place which the Lord your God shall choose to put his name”. The Levites are endorsed as an elevated priesthood. The cult of kingship, although endorsed, is now circumscribed by “Mosaic Law” as interpreted by a privileged priesthood

(Deuteronomy 17.15-20).

With God’s blessing, misogynistic Jewish/zoroastrain scribes encoded a raft of sex crimes which sanctified cultural ambition. The sacred mission was to populate and subdue the earth in the name of Cyrus the Great thier Messiah. (Judaism bequeathed its unfortunate mix of ignorance and intolerance to a wayward faction of heretics later known to the world as “Christians”.)

THE BOOKS

The first five books – Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, book of Numbers and Deuteronomy – comprise the Torah, the story of Israel from the Genesis creation narrative to the death of Moses. Few scholars today doubt that it reached its present form in the Persian period (538–332 BC), and that its authors were the elite who controlled the Temple at that time. As we know it was Cyrus the Great,Darius the great and his Zoroastrain scribes that controlled the Temple at this time.

The books of Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings follow, forming a history of Israel from the Conquest of Canaan to the Siege of Jerusalem c. 587 BC. There is a broad consensus among scholars that these originated as a single work (the so-called “Deuteronomistic history”) during the Babylonian exile of the 6th century BC. The two Books of Chronicles cover much the same material as the Pentateuch and Deuteronomistic history and probably date from the 4th century BC.These books where written in Babylon ,by Babylonian zoroastrian scribes.

Chronicles links with the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, which were probably finished during the 3rd century BC.Catholic and Orthodox Old Testaments contain two (Catholic Old Testament) to four (Orthodox) Books of Maccabees, written in the 2nd and 1st centuries BC.

The history books make up around half the total content of the Old Testament. Of the remainder, the books of the various prophets – Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and the twelve “minor prophets” – were written between the 8th and 6th centuries BC, with the exceptions of Jonah and Daniel, which were written much later. The “wisdom” and other books – Job, Proverbs and so on – date from between the 5th century BC and the 2nd or 1st BC, with the exception of some of the Psalms

MORE BORROWED WISDOM URGING GLOBAL DOMINATION

TO PRAISE GOD AT HIS HORNED ALTER

“Bind the festal procession with branches, up to the horns of the altar,”

The Book of Psalms (Hebrew: תְּהִלִּים or תהילים Tehillim meaning “Praises”), commonly referred to simply as Psalms or “the Psalms”, is the first book of the Ketuvim (“Writings”), the third section of the Hebrew Bible

Most individual psalms involve the praise of God – for his power and beneficence, for his creation of the world, and for his past acts of deliverance for Israel. The psalms envision a world in which everyone and everything will praise God.

There exists a generic similarity between Egyptian hymns and biblical psalms.

The Egyptian Great Hymn to the Aten (14th century BC) is frequently cited as a predecessor to Psalm 104

Psalm 29, is adapted from early Canaanite worship, and others which are clearly from the post-Exilic period.

The Septuagint bible,(Greek), present in Eastern Orthodox churches, includes a Psalm 151

The Peshitta (the bible used in Syriac churches in the Middle East) include Psalms 152–155.

The Psalms of Solomon, which are a further 18 psalms surviving only in Greek and Syriac translation.

It is admitted by all that Pss. 9 and 10 were originally a single acrostic poem; they have been wrongly separated by Massorah(Hebrew),while rightly united by the Septuagint(Greek) and Vulgate(Latin).

These and other indications suggest that the current Western Christian and Jewish collection of 150 psalms were selected and adapted from a wider original set.

Between the 10th century BC and the beginning of their exile in 586 polytheism was normal throughout Israel it was only after the exile that worship of Yahweh alone became established, and possibly only as late as the time of the Maccabees (2nd century BC) that monotheism became universal among Jews.

Even in the Torah Solomon builds temples to many Gods during his reign and Josiah is reported as cutting down the statues of Asherah in the temple Solomon built for Yahweh. (Josiah’s grandfather, Manasseh, had erected this statue. 2 Kings 21:7) Further evidence includes, for example, an 8th-century combination of iconography and inscriptions discovered at Kuntillet Ajrud in the northern Sinai desert where a storage jar shows three anthropomorphic figures and an inscription that refers to “Yahweh … and his Asherah”.Further evidence includes the many female figurines unearthed in ancient Israel, supporting the view that Asherah functioned as a goddess and consort of Yahweh and was worshiped as the Queen of Heaven

The word “Elohim” has the Hebrew plural ending “-īm”, which some Biblical scholars have taken as support for the general notion that the ancient Hebrews were polytheists in the time of the patriarchs.

CYRUS THE GREAT BECOMES THE JEWISH MESSIAH AND THE SECOND TEMPLE BUILDER

A NEW PERSIAN RULING CLASS IS IMPOSED PROBABLY MIXED WITH THE EGYPTIAN SHASU YWA FACTION
WE ALSO SEE IN BABYLON THE HEBREW LEADERS ARE CHANGED FROM WARRIOR CHIEFS(OF SETH)
TO SAGES OF A ONE UNIVERSAL AND TRANSCENDENTAL GOD TO INSTRUCT THE NEW PERSIAN/BABYLONIAN INSPIRED RELIGION

As a result of Cyrus’ policies, the Jews honored him as a dignified and righteous king. He is the only Gentile to be designated as a messiah, a divinely-appointed king, in the Tanakh (Isaiah 45:1-6).

THE HEBREWS HAVE REPLACED AN ARYAN BERBER/EGYPTIAN RULING CASTE WITH AN ARYAN PERSIAN RULING CASTE.
SO THESE SET WORSHIPPING HABIRU PEOPLE INVADED SUMERIA(UR) AND EGYPT ,AND DID NOT BRING CIVILISATION TO THEM.
THE STATE OF ISRAEL/JUDAH WAS PROMISED BY SET(SETH) CREATED FROM GENOCIDE AND WAS OVERTHROWN BY THE ASSYRIANS AND THEN THE BABYLONIANS AND THEN REINVENTED AS A PERSIAN PUPPET STATE AFTER THEY CONVERT TO THE NEW PERSIAN/ZOROASTRIAN/BABYLONIAN THEME RELIGION.

THE SECOND TEMPLE WAS BUILT TO PREFORM CYRUS THE GREATS RELIGIOUS RITUALS

According to the Book of Ezra, rebuilding of the Temple was authorized by Cyrus the Great and ratified by Darius the Great.Construction of a new temple was begun in 537 BCE; after a hiatus, work resumed 520 BCE, with completion occurring in 516 BCE and dedication in 515BCE

THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE “SECOND TEMPLE” UNDER DARIUS SHOWS A FOREIGN POWER IMPOSING ITS RELIGION AND MAKING THE LOCALS PAY FOR IT AND BUILD IT

On the invitation of Zerubbabel, the governor, who showed them a remarkable example of liberality by contributing personally 1,000 golden darics, besides other gifts, the people poured their gifts into the sacred treasury with great enthusiasm. First they erected and dedicated the altar of God on the exact spot where it had formerly stood, and they then cleared away the charred heaps of debris which occupied the site of the old temple; and in the second month of the second year (535 BCE),

Darius I of Persia became king (522 BCE). In the second year of this monarch the work of rebuilding the temple was resumed and carried forward to its completion, under the stimulus of the earnest counsels and admonitions of the prophets Haggai and Zechariah. It was ready for consecration in the spring of 516 BCE, more than twenty years after the return from captivity. The Temple was completed on the third day of the month Adar, in the sixth year of the reign of King Darius, amid great rejoicings on the part of all the people although it was evident that the Jews were no longer an independent people, but were subject to a foreign power.A wide interest was felt in this great movement, although it was regarded with mixed feelings by the spectators

AS THE OLD SET WORSHIPPING RULING CASTE HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH A NEW ZOROASTRIAN ABRHAMIC MONOTHEISTIC RULING CASTE THE SECOND TEMPLE IS DIFFERENT AS IT IS NOT A TEMPLE OF SET

THE OLD SET HOLY RELICS DISAPPEAR

Temple lacked the following holy articles:

The Ark of the Covenant(Anubis Chest), containing the Tablets of Stone, the pot of manna, and Aaron’s rod (Set Staff)

The Urim and Thummim (divination objects contained in the Hoshen)

The holy oil

The sacred fire.

THE GOD SET DISAPPEARS

According to Jewish tradition, however, the Temple lacked the Shekinah/Ruach HaKodesh, the dwelling or settling divine presence of God, present in the first.

Jewish Encyclopedia, temple The Second Temple

CYRUS THE GREAT HAVING NEWLY CREATED HIS LOYAL PERSIAN/JEWISH RELGIOUS YAHWEH MONOTHEISTS

HE SENDS THEM OFF TO RUN CANAAN IN HIS NAME AND COLLECT TRIBUTE AND TO DEFEND HIS PERSIAN EMPIRE

The sojourn of the elite of Judah in exile proved crucial. A half-century of acculturation transformed the priesthood and its Yahweh cult. With the accession of Cyrus, it seems a force of Persian-sponsored returnees were charged with a temple building project in Jerusalem, beginning with an altar. The book of Ezra credits both the

Jewish god and a succession of Persian kings for the “reconstructed” temple:

“And the elders of the Jews builded … and finished it, according to the commandment of the God of Israel, and according to the commandment of Cyrus, and Darius, and Artaxerxes king of Persia.” – Ezra 6.14.

THE SECOND NON-EXISTANT FANATSY TEMPLE IS CONSTRUCTED IN THE JEWISH CULTURAL IMAGINATION

However, because of “local resistance” worked stalled almost as soon as it had begun and resumed only sixteen years later, in the second year of Darius the Great (520 BC). The “Persian temple” apparently took four years to complete. To expedite matters an existing Yahweh temple on Mount Gerizim was pillaged and even the traditions of the Samaritan sanctuary transferred wholesale to Jerusalem. Thus a modest structure on Temple Mount dating from the late 6th century BC is more certain than any earlier Solomonic edifice, although nothing of this temple has been found either.

A comparison from Egypt

An Egyptian pylon , a very hard thing to make completely disappear

An Egyptian pylon , a very hard thing to make completely disappear

Ceremonial entrance porch, Egyptian style

The Temple of Edfu, Egypt, was the work of the Ptolemaic kings over more than a century. The famous “pylon” was built between 116-71 BC. It’s depth is similar to that claimed for Herod’s temple porch but its width is almost double. However at a height of 36 metres the pylon is barely half the height of the fantasy ascribed to Herod and said to have been built in 18 months. Fat chance.

JUST LIKE SOLOMONS FANTASY TEMPLE WHICH IS BASED ON THE TEMPLE TO AMEN BUILT BY RAMOSES III IN CANAAN TO RECIEVE TRIBUTE PAYMENTS FROM SUBJECT PEOPLES

THE SECOND TEMPLE IS ACTUALLY BASED ON A PERSIAN TEMPLE OF ESHMUN IN SIDON WHERE THE KINGS OF ASSYRIA AND PERSIA WOULD RECIEVE TRIBUTE PAYMENTS FROM SUBJECT PEOPLES

Some idea of this “second” temple may be gleaned from the remains of another Persian-sponsored sanctuary from the same time: the Sidonian temple of Eshmun. Almost certainly the two temples shared design features. But unlike impoverished Jerusalem, Sidon was a wealthy, cosmopolitan trading city with a powerful fleet in the service of the Persian empire.

The Temple of Eshmun (Arabic: معبد أشمون‎) is an ancient place of worship dedicated to Eshmun, the Phoenician god of healing. It is located near the Awali river, 2 kilometres (1.2 mi) northeast of Sidon in southwestern Lebanon. The site was occupied from the 7th century BCE to the 8th century CE, suggesting an integrated relationship with the nearby city of Sidon.Originally constructed by Sidonian king Eshmunazar II in the Achaemenid era (c. 529–333 BCE) to celebrate the city’s recovered wealth and stature.The healing attributions of Eshmun were combined with his divine consort Astarte’s fertilizing powers; the latter had an annex chapel with a sacred paved pool within the Eshmun sanctuary.Pilgrims from all over the ancient world flocked to the Eshmun Temple leaving votive traces of their devotion and proof of their cure.

When Assyrian king Sargon II died in 705 BCE, the Sidonian king Luli joined with the Egyptians and Judah in an unsuccessful rebellion against Assyrian rule, but was forced to flee to Kition (modern Larnaca in Cyprus) with the arrival of the Assyrian army headed by Sennacherib, Sargon II’s son and successor. Sennacherib instated Ittobaal on the throne of Sidon and reimposed the annual tribute.

Sidon was stripped of its territory, which was awarded to Baal I, the king of rival Tyre and loyal vassal to Esarhaddon. Baal I and Esarhaddon signed a treaty in 675 in which Eshmun’s name features as one of the deities invoked as guarantors of the covenant.

BUT NOT ONE TRACE OF A TEMPLE OF SOLOMON OR CYRUS THE GREATS YAHWEH TEMPLE IN JERUSALEM

But for all the adventure, and considerable baloney, in reality, not a single stone of the Temple – nor the entire Solomonic theme park for that matter – has ever been unearthed.Whether in the conflagration of the Jewish war or in later development of the concourse, the holy edifice was destroyed so completely that not even today’s forensics can identify the footprint of the building, let alone cast a light on the true form of its purported monumental structure.

The partisan texts suggest a formidable structure but unlike the great sanctuaries of paganism, no non-Jewish source was moved to comment on this “wonder of theworld.”

Could it all be grossly exaggerated?

Why the deceit? For the priesthood of Judaism the grand illusion of a Temple of Solomon was a necessary one: it supported both the myth of God’s patronage of the chosen people and the comforting dream of a once and future empire. This simple tale of fantasy and fraud leads rapidly to mass murder. But then, we are talking of religion.

The inspiration for the biblical fable of a Solomonic temple, with its elaborate paraphernalia of sacrifice and ritual, was drawn – not from God – but from the courts of Assyria and Babylon and from a time later than any 10th century king.

They also draw on the older stories of Hyksos Pharoanic Egyptian rule and the ancient Egyptian temples of Set and possibly the Egyptian 21st Dynasty rule from Tanis ,with its Temple to Amen.

THE NEWLY INVENTED JEWISH PEOPLE FIGHT FOR PERSIA FAR AND WIDE
BUT STILL SHOWING AMEN SET PRACTICES

The Elephantine papyri are caches of legal documents and letters written in Aramaic, which document a community of “Jewish” soldiers, with perhaps an admixture of Samaritans, stationed here during the Persian occupation of Egypt. They maintained a temple (also see House of Yahweh), which functioned alongside that of Khnum(Amen the Ram).There are records of an Egyptian temple to Khnum on the island as early as the third Dynasty of Egypt.

WE KNOW THE  TEMPLE THE JEWISH USE WAS AN EGYPTIAN TEMPLE THAT WAS  ALREADY THERE.

‘Now our forefathers built this temple in the fortress of Elephantine back in the days of the kingdom of Egypt, and when Cambyses came to Egypt he found it built’

It is probably a temple of Set or male fertilty god they restore, and remember the YHW has just been converted to monotheim by Persian zoroastrianism.

The Achaemenid Persian Empire (c. 550–330 BCE),Religion Zoroastrianism

The impact of Cyrus the Great’s Edict of Restoration is mentioned in Judeo-Christian texts and the empire was instrumental in the spread of Zoroastrianism(MONOTHEISM) as far east as China.

The documents cover the period 495 to 399 BC ,the time when Cyrus the Great brings monotheism and education to the bandit hills tribes that are fighting for him.Spreading his monotheistic beliefs and controlling hearts and minds.

These Asciatics had their own temple to Yahweh.The written form of the Tetragrammaton in Elephantine is YHW.This temple functioned alongside that of the local ram-headed deity, Khnum (Amen the Ram)

Some related exhibition didactics of 2002 included comments about significant structural similarities between Judaism and the ancient Egyptian religion (Amen/Set in this case) and how they easily coexisted and blended at Elephantine

Prior to 1822, there were temples to Thutmose III and Amenhotep III on the island. At that time they were destroyed by the Ottoman government. Both temples were relatively intact prior to the deliberate demolition.

WE SEE PERSIA RULING JUDEA AND GIVING PERMISSION TO BUILD TEMPLES

Petition to Bagaos

Petition to Bagaos

The “Petition to Bagoas” (Sayce-Cowley collection) is a letter written in 407 BCE to Bagoas, the Persian governor of Judea, appealing for assistance in rebuilding the Jewish temple in Elephantine, which had recently been badly damaged.

“You may say in Egypt build it on its site as it was formerly.”

UNFORTUNATELY THE TEMPLE  WAS NOT POPULAR

By the middle of the 4th century BCE, the temple at Elephantine had ceased to function. There is evidence from excavations that the rebuilding and enlargement of the Khnum temple under Nectanebo II (360-343) took the place of the former temple of YHW.

Dead Sea Scrolls

Dead Sea Scrolls

The Dead Sea Scrolls are a collection of 972 texts discovered between 1946 and 1956 at Khirbet Qumran in the West Bank.The texts are of great historical, religious, and linguistic significance because they include the earliest known surviving manuscripts of works later included in the Hebrew Bible canon, along with extra-biblical manuscripts which preserve evidence of the diversity of religious thought in late Second Temple Judaism.

The Qumran Library

The collection of writing recovered in the Qumran environs has restored to us a voluminous corpus of Jewish documents dating from the third century B.C.E. to 68 C.E., demonstrating the rich literary activity of Second Temple-period Jewry. The collection comprises documents of a varied nature, most of them of a distinct religious bent

The biblical manuscripts include what are probably the earliest copies of these texts to have come down to us. Most of the books of the Bible are represented in the collection. Some books are extant in large number of copies; others are represented only fragmentarily on mere scraps of parchment.Qumran has yielded copies of the Septuagint in Greek.

The biblical scrolls in general have provided many new readings that facilitate the reconstruction of the textual history of the Old Testament. It is also significant that several manuscripts of the Bible, including the Leviticus Scroll are inscribed not in the Jewish script dominant at the time but rather in the ancient paleo-Hebrew script.

A considerable number of apocryphal and pseudepigraphic texts are preserved at Qumran, where original Hebrew and Aramaic versions of these Jewish compositions of the Second Temple period were first encountered.

Archeological and historical evidence indicates that Qumran was founded in the second half of the second century B.C.E., during the time of the Maccabean dynasty. A hiatus in the occupation of the site is linked to evidence of a huge earthquake. Qumran was abandoned about the time of the Roman incursion of 68 C.E., two years before the collapse of Jewish self-government in Judea and the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem in 70 C.E.

The chief sources of information for the history of this fateful time span are the Qumran scrolls and the excavations, but earlier information on the Essenes was provided by their contemporaries: Josephus Flavius, Philo of Alexandria, and Pliny the Elder. Their accounts arc continuously being borne out by the site excavations and study of the writings.

OF COURSE ACCESS TO READ WHAT IS ACTUALLY ON THESE SCROLLS IS SEVERELY RESTRICTED!!
…BY THE ISREALLI GOVERNMENT AND ISREALLI ANTIQUITIES AUTHORITY…..AND THE ROCKERFELLER MUSEUM!!

Publication of the scrolls has taken many decades, and delays have been a source of academic controversy. The scrolls were controlled by a small group of scholars headed by John Strugnell, while a majority of scholars had access neither to the scrolls nor even to photographs of the text. Scholars such as Hershel Shanks, Norman Golb and many others argued for decades for publishing the texts, so that they become available to researchers. This controversy only ended in 1991, when the Biblical Archaeology Society was able to publish the “Facsimile Edition of the Dead Sea Scrolls”, after an intervention of the Israeli government and the Israeli Antiquities Authority (IAA). In 1991 Emanuel Tov was appointed as the chairman of the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation, and publication of the scrolls followed in the same year.

During early assembly and translation work by scholars through the Rockefeller Museum from the 1950s through the 1960s, access to the unpublished documents was severely limited to the editorial committee.

SOME EDITTING IS STILL GOING ON…….?

In November 2007 the Dead Sea Scrolls Foundation commissioned the London publisher, Facsimile Editions Limited, to produce a facsimile edition of The Great Isaiah Scroll (1QIsa), The Order of the Community (1QS), and The Pesher to Habakkuk (1QpHab).[98][99] The facsimile was produced from 1948 photographs, and so more faithfully represents the condition of the Isaiah scroll at the time of its discovery than does the current condition of the real Isaiah scroll

Following the conquest of Judea by Alexander the Great, it became part of the Ptolemaic Kingdom of Egypt until 200 BCE, when King Antiochus III the Great of Syria defeated King Ptolemy V Epiphanes of Egypt at the Battle of Panion. Judea became at that moment part of the Seleucid empire of Syria. When the Second Temple in Jerusalem was looted and its religious services stopped, Judaism was effectively outlawed. In 167 BCE, Antiochus ordered an altar to Zeus erected in the Temple. He also banned circumcision and ordered pigs to be sacrificed at the altar of the Temple

Herod the Great was a real king – but he did not massacre any babies. He was an astute and successful ruler. The Herodians and the Jewish elite became Romanised but religious fanatics led an armed resistance which ended in catastrophes under Titus, Trajan, and Hadrian.

In the aftermath, a collaborationist revision of Judaism, later attributed to a 13th apostle “Paul”, allegedly of impeccable Pharisaic credentials, competed fiercely with a reconstituted rabbinic Judaism which fused piety with mercantile success.

Herod’s Temple was one of the larger construction projects of the 1st century BCE. Herod was interested in perpetuating his name for all eternity through building projects, and his construction program was extensive. He had magnificent palaces in Masada, Caesarea and Tiberias.

Herod built temples for various pagan gods to serve the gentile populations, which were paid for by heavy taxes on the local Jewish population. But his masterpiece was the Temple of Jerusalem. The old temple built by Zerubbabel was replaced by a magnificent edifice

On September 25, 2007 Yuval Baruch, archaeologist with the Israeli Antiquities Authority announced the discovery of a quarry compound which may have provided King Herod with the stones to build his Temple on the Temple Mount. Coins, pottery and an iron stake found proved the date of the quarrying to be about 19 BCE. Archaeologist Ehud Netzer confirmed that the large outlines of the stone cuts is evidence that it was a massive public project worked by hundreds of slaves

The Temple itself would be constructed by the priests. Later the (Exodus 30:13) sanctuary shekel was reinstituted to support the temple as the temple tax.

In 66 AD the Jewish population rebelled against the Roman empire. Four years later, in 70 AD, Roman legions under Titus retook and subsequently destroyed much of Jerusalem and the Second Temple. The Arch of Titus, located in Rome and built to commemorate Titus’s victory in Judea, depicts a Roman victory procession with soldiers carrying spoils from the Temple, including the Menorah. Although Jews continued to inhabit the destroyed city, Jerusalem was razed by the Emperor Hadrian at the end of the Bar Kokhba revolt in 135 CE when he established a new city called Aelia Capitolina.

Later Roman governors used the remains to build palaces and a Temple of Jupiter, and the Byzantines a Church.

BUT IT SEEMS HEROD BUILT MORE PAGAN TEMPLES THAN JEWISH ONES
THE “JEWISH” WAILING WALL? IT SEEMS NOT

Coins from 17AD found under Jerusalem’s Western Wall hints sacred site NOT built by Herod

By Rob Waugh

Ancient site holy to both Jews AND Muslims

Coins stamped with successor to Pontius Pilate

Construction ‘had not even begun’ by Herod’s death

It proves that the Wall – supposedly built by Herod, the Jewish king who features prominently in the Gospels, was in fact built much later.archaeologists with the Israel Antiquities Authority now say diggers have found coins underneath the massive foundation stones of the compound’s Western Wall that were stamped by a Roman proconsul 20 years after Herod’s death.

That indicates that Herod did not build the wall – part of which is venerated as Judaism’s holiest prayer site – and that construction was not close to being complete when he died.

‘The find changes the way we see the construction, and shows it lasted for longer than we originally thought,’ said the dig’s co-director, Eli Shukron

Coins dated 17/18 CE were discovered beneath the Western Wall of Temple Mount, providing scientific confirmation that the Western Wall and Robinsons Arch construction were not completed in King Herods lifetime

The coins confirm a contemporary account by Josephus Flavius, a Jewish general who became a Roman historian.

Writing after a Jewish revolt against Rome and the destruction of the Temple by legionnaires in 70 A.D., he recounted that work on the Temple Mount had been completed only by King Agrippa II, Herod’s great-grandson, two decades before the entire compound was destroyed.

According to the Palestinian National Authority, the Jews did not consider the Wall as a place for worship except after the Balfour Declaration was issued in 1917

Raed Salah, leader of the northern branch of the Islamic Movement in Israel wrote that:

“The Western Wall – all its various parts, structures and gates – are an inseparable part of the al-Aqsa compound…The Western Wall is part of Al-Aqsa’s western tower, which the Israeli establishment fallaciously and sneakily calls the ‘Wailing Wall’. The wall is part of the holy al-Aqsa Mosque”.

PA-appointed Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ekrima Sa’id Sabri, believes that the Wall belongs to the Muslims alone

“There is not a single stone in the Wailing Wall relating to Jewish History. The Jews cannot legitimately claim this wall, neither religiously nor historically. The Committee of the League of Nations recommended in 1930, to allow the Jews to pray there, in order to keep them quiet. But by no means did it acknowledge that the wall belongs to them.”

—Interviewed by German magazine Die Welt, January 17, 2001

In 2006, Dr. Hassan Khader, founder of the Al Quds Encyclopedia, told PA television that the first connection of the Jews to the Wall is “a recent one which began in the 16th Century…not ancient…like the roots of the Islamic connection”.

In November 2010, an official paper published by the PA Ministry of Information denied Jewish rights to the Wall. It stated that “Al-Buraq Wall is in fact the western wall of Al-Aksa Mosque” and that Jews had only started using the site for worship after the 1917 Balfour Declaration.

The Walls Come Tumblin’ Down

In six 30-minute programmes scheduled for transmission in autumn 2001 John McCarthy travels through the Holy Land to examine the validity or otherwise of stories from the Old Testament.

Bringing in history, archaeology and new research, his intriguing journey is the subject of this thought-provoking tie-in which looks at: the truth behind Jericho’s ‘tumbling’ walls; the mystery of the Promised Land; who was Solomon; when did the Jews become monotheists; what was Zion; and when was the text of the Old Testament actually written? The book offers fresh, sometimes unsettling, perspectives on the Bible and its history.

HERE THE HEBREW RACE ENDS.THE MODERH JEWISH RACE ARE NOT THIER DESENDANTS THEY JUST BELIEVE THIER MYTHS!!
JUDAISM JUST LIKE CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM ,IS A CONVERTING RELIGION
THEREFORE THERE CANNOT BE A RACE OF “JEWS”

ANYMORE THAN THERE COULD BE A RACE OF “CHRISTIANS” OR A RACE OF “MUSLIMS”
JUDAISM IS A BELIEF NOT A RACE!

However those Eastern Roman Jews in Anatolia never suffered such a fate, now did they? What happened to them?  The majority of those Jews were not located in Palestine, but where? Anatolia, probably Western Anatolia, heavily concentrated in the Roman province of Asia. There were also other massive communities of Jews in Syria and Lower Egypt, but the bulk of the ‘Hebrew’ population existed in what is now modern-day Turkey, not Israel. When the Romans invaded Palestine the accompanying physical destruction and the cultural suppression was recorded in great detail. To those Jews living outside of Israel it was considered to be a loss of unimaginable magnitudes at the time (How could heathen Romans defile the sacred Jewish holy land?).

Talmud

THE TALMUD WAS WRITEN IN BABYLON IN c.500AD

The Talmud has two components: the Mishnah (c. 200 CE), the first written compendium of Judaism’s Oral Law; and the Gemara (c. 500 CE),a discussion of the Mishnah .Still to this day the Jewish follow the Talmud that was wrtten in Babylon. (It was actually complied 175 years later than the New Testament which was 325 CE)The Gemara(Talmud) was originally compiled by scholars of Babylonia, primarily of the academies of Sura, Pumbedita, and Mata Mehasia, which was published about 500 AD. By convention, a reference to the “Gemara” or “Talmud,” without further qualification, refers to the Babylonian version.

THE JEWISH SLAVE TRADE

ITS WAS THE JEWISH SLAVE TRADERS THAT MADE JEWS “UNPOPULAR” IN EUROPE, NOT ANTI-SEMITISM!!

The Radhanites (also Radanites, Hebrew sing. רדהני Radhani, pl. רדהנים Radhanim; Arabic الرذنية ar-Raðaniyya) were medieval Jewish merchants.

The Muslim powers of Iberia both raided for slaves and purchased slaves from European merchants, often the Jewish Radhanites, one of the few groups that could easily move between the Christian and Islamic worlds.

WHO WHERE THE SLAVES?

WHITE EUROPEANS

“SLAVS”

ITS WHERE WE GET THE NAME SLAVE FROM

Saqaliba (Arabic: صقالبة, sg. Siqlabi) refers to the Slavs, particularly Slavic slaves and mercenaries in the medieval Arab world, in the Middle East, North Africa, Sicily and Al-Andalus. It is generally thought that the Arabic term is a Byzantine loanword: saqlab, siklab, saqlabi etc. is a corruption of Greek Sklavinoi for “Slavs”. The word was also often used more generally to refer to all slaves from Central and Eastern Europe.

Zohar

Zohar

THE ZOHAR WAS WRITTEN IN THE 13TH CENTURY

Modern criticism, view of authorship

In the mid-20th century, the Jewish historian Gershom Scholem contended that de Leon himself was the most likely author of the Zohar. Among other things, Scholem noticed the Zohar’s frequent errors in Aramaic grammar, its suspicious traces of Spanish words and sentence patterns, and its lack of knowledge of the land of Israel. Yeshayahu Leibowitz, noted professor of philosophy at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, claimed that “It is clear that the Zohar was written by de Leon as it is clear that Theodore Herzl wrote Medinat HaYehudim (The Jewish State).”

Other Jewish scholars have also suggested the possibility that the Zohar was written by a group of people, including de Leon. This theory generally presents de Leon as having been the leader of a mystical school, whose collective effort resulted in the Zohar.

In the Encyclopaedia Judaica article written by the late Professor Gershom Scholem of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem there is an extensive discussion of the sources cited in the Zohar. Scholem views the author of the Zohar as having based the Zohar on a wide variety of pre-existing Jewish sources, while at the same time inventing a number of fictitious works that the Zohar supposedly quotes, e.g., the Sifra de-Adam, the Sifra de-Hanokh, the Sifra di-Shelomo Malka, the Sifra de-Rav Hamnuna Sava, the Sifra de-Rav Yeiva Sava, the Sifra de-Aggadeta, the Raza de-Razin and many others.

The author of the Zohar drew upon the Bible commentaries written by medieval rabbis, including Rashi, Abraham ibn Ezra, David Kimhi and even authorities as late as Nahmanides and Maimonides. Scholem gives a variety of examples of such borrowings.

The Zohar draws upon early mystical texts such as the Sefer Yetzirah and the Bahir, and the early medieval writings of the Hasidei Ashkenaz.

Another influence on the Zohar which Scholem identified, was a circle of Kabbalasts in Castile who dealt with the appearance of an evil side emanating from within the world of the sephirot. Scholem saw this dualism of good and evil within the Godhead as a kind of “gnostic” inclination within Kabbalah, and as a predecessor of the Sitra Ahra (the other, evil side) in the Zohar. The main text of the Castile circle, the Treatise on the Left Emanation, was written by Jacob ha-Cohen in around 1265

 THE JEWISH “STAR OF DAVID” IS ACTUALLY A PAGAN PROTECTION SYMBOL AND ONLY BECAME “JEWISH” IN THE 19TH CENTURY
YOU WILL FIND NO ANCIENT JEWISH “STAR OF DAVID”

Jude-Star-of-David

Jude-Star-of-David

The precise origin of the use of the hexagram as a Jewish symbol remains unknown, but it apparently emerged in the context of medieval Jewish protective amulets (segulot). One understanding is that the symbol represents the 12/13 months of the lunisolar calendar that keeps seasons synchronized with the lunar cycle, in distinction from the lunar calendar (common to the Islamic culture) in which seasons drift. The Jewish Encyclopedia cites a 12th-century Karaite document as the earliest Jewish literary source to mention the symbol

However, the evidence points to the gradual evolution of the hexagram from a Roman cosmological symbol to a religious and magical symbol which was not specifically connected to one religion or people. Research suggests that both motifs were used by different religions and that the clearest meaning of the hexagram is associated with magical techniques to ward off evil forces.

First: The hexagram is a universal symbol, whose Jewish associations developed gradually. It began as the symbol of the Jewish community in Prague, probably in the 14th century, though it might have been only in the 17th century. It was recognized as the symbol of the Jews as a whole in the 19th century.

Second: Several Jewish and Christian examples of the hexagram and other decorative motif, exist from the ancient period and later on in Islamic art. In the 13th century, the motif passed from copies of the Bible, which had been transcribed in Islamic countries, to Hebrew manuscripts in Germany and Spain. In Spain, until the 13th century, the hexagram was known as King Solomon’s Seal by the Jews; from the 13th until the 15th century, both names were used simultaneously. It was only later that the term Star of David gradually became dominant in Ashkenazi communities, while King Solomon’s Seal became identified with the pentagram.

Third: The hexagram or the pentagram, appear first on “magic” mezuzot (doorpost scrolls) and later on various talismans in literature. The magic drawings of the hexagram and the pentagram were known as seals, in keeping with the idea that a person “stamps himself” with these signs in order to protect himself from harmful spirits. This term is connected to the legend of King Solomon who controlled the demons by means of a special signet ring on which was engraved the Tettragrammaton. The seal only had power for one thing to provide protection from malevolent forces.

THE INVENTION OF THE MODERN JEW

The attempt to justify Zionism through genetics is reminiscent of the procedures of late nineteenth-century anthropologists who very scientifically set out to discover the specific characteristics of Europeans. As of today,by recent genetic research published in Nature journal and the American Journal of Human Genetics, no study based on anonymous DNA samples has succeeded in identifying a genetic marker specific to Jews, and it is not likely that any study ever will.

What is often left out of discussion is the fact that Judaism was also once a proselytizing religion similar to that of Christianity and Islam(which are just different flavours of abrhamic monotheism aka original fascism).

There is no such biological “Jewish” race that originated from what is now Israel. The original “Hebrews” came from Ur, Southern Mesopotamia and they migrated to the Levant where they took no issue with converting and intermarrying with the native Canaanites. This is well-documented.  Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews cluster most closely with modern day Turks (also with Greeks, Armenians and Kurds).

There were also many examples of Proselytism thereafter including whole nations being converted to Judaism. Between 1000 and 1200 it is estimated that at least 15,000 men and women converted to Judaism from Christianity (Noiman Golb 1987) in the Islamic world where conversion to Judaism for non-Muslims was not prohibited. In fact until conversion to Judaism was banned by both Christians and Muslims Judaism was actively proselytistic. Various Roman emperors such as Septimius Severus in 202, Constantine in 329, Constantius II in 353 and Honorius in 409 issued decrees imposing drastic penalties for Jews that proselytized. Widespread conversions to Judaism occurred all across Eurasia and Africa touching a variety of populations including the Ethiopians, Indians (Cochin Jews and Bene Israel), Chinese (Kaifeng Jews), Berbers, Kurds, Khazars (the majority of which would have been Turkifed northern Caucasians genetically similar to modern-day Chechens, Dagestanis, Ossetians, etc), Yemenis, and Arabs.

That is the issue that the Zionists unfortunately will not touch.

Encyclopaedia Judaica | 2007 “Population”

http://www.encyclopedia.com/article-1G2-2587515987/population.html

Although in the 11th century they comprised only 3% of the world’s Jewish population, Ashkenazi Jews accounted for (at their highest) 92% of the world’s Jews in 1931 and today make up approximately 80% of Jews worldwide

Ashkenaz is also a Japhetic patriarch in the Table of Nations (Genesis 10). Thus, Ashkenazim or Ashkenazi Jews are literally “German Jews.”

The table of nations in Genesis 10 begins by listing Noah’s immediate children:

Ham, forefather of the southern peoples (Hamitic Africa)

Shem, forefather of the middle peoples (Semitic)

Japheth, forefather of the northern peoples (Japhetic Eurasia)

THE MODERN JEWISH RACE IS NOT SEMITIC,BUT JAPHETIC,( the Palastinians are SEMITIC,so who is the ANTI-SEMITE?)
“The term Semite means a member of any of various ancient and modern people originating in southwestern Asia, including Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, ARABS, and Ethiopian Semites”

The focus of the present study is to analyze and reassess Ashkenazi results obtained by DNA researchers and synthesize them into a coherent picture of Jewish genetics, interweaving historical evidence in order to obtain a more accurate depiction of the complex genetic history of this group.

One important contribution to Ashkenazi DNA appears to have originated with the Khazars, an ancient people of probable Central Asian stock that lived in southern Russia during the 8th-12th centuries CE.

The Khazars were a semi-nomadic Turkic people who dominated the Pontic steppe and the North Caucasus from the 7th to the 10th century CE. The name ‘Khazar’ seems to be tied to a Turkic verb form meaning “wandering”.
In the 7th century CE, the Khazars founded an independent Khaganate in the Northern Caucasus along the Caspian Sea.

During the eighth or ninth century the state religion became Judaism.

THERE IS A JEWISH HOMELAND FOR THESE PEOPLE ALREADY BIROBIDZHAN.

A documentary film, L’Chayim, Comrade Stalin! on Stalin’s creation of the Jewish Autonomous Oblast and its partial settlement by thousands of Russian and Yiddish-speaking Jews was released in 2003. As well as relating the history of the creation of the proposed Jewish homeland, the film features scenes of life in contemporary Birobidzhan and interviews with Jewish residents.

According to the NY Times, Stalin established the city to protect secular Jews

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Birobidjan

Far from Jews being forcibly exiled to Birobidjan, there were extensive worldwide efforts to promote this Soviet Jewish homeland project, including ‘Ambidjan’, the American Birobidjan Committee, whose officials included Albert Einstein and the prominent American Jewish author B.Z. Goldberg

THE JEWISH INQUISITION IS STILL ALIVE AND WELL.

JEWISH DNA

A keynote research paper showing that Middle Eastern Jews and Palestinians are genetically almost identical has been pulled from a leading journal.

Academics who have already received copies of Human Immunology have been urged to rip out the offending pages and throw them away.
Such a drastic act of self-censorship is unprecedented in research publishing and has created widespread disquiet, generating fears that it may involve the suppression of scientific work that questions Biblical dogma.
‘I have authored several hundred scientific papers, some for Nature and Science, and this has never happened to me before,’ said the article’s lead author, Spanish geneticist Professor Antonio Arnaiz-Villena, of Complutense University in Madrid. ‘I am stunned.’
The article has been removed from Human Immunology’s website, while letters have been written to libraries and universities throughout the world asking them to ignore or ‘preferably to physically remove the relevant pages’. Arnaiz-Villena has been sacked from the journal’s editorial board.
Dolly Tyan, president of the American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics, which runs the journal, told subscribers that the society is ‘offended and embarrassed’.

The paper, ‘The Origin of Palestinians and their Genetic Relatedness with other Mediterranean Populations’, involved studying genetic variations in immune system genes among people in the Middle East.

In common with earlier studies, the team found no data to support the idea that Jewish people were genetically distinct from other people in the region. In doing so, the team’s research challenges claims that Jews are a special, chosen people and that Judaism can only be inherited.

Jews and Palestinians in the Middle East share a very similar gene pool and must be considered closely related and not genetically separate, the authors state. Rivalry between the two races is therefore based ‘in cultural and religious, but not in genetic differences’, they conclude.
Arnaiz-Villena says he has not seen a single one of the accusations made against him, despite being promised the opportunity to look at the letters sent to the journal.
References to the history of the region, the ones that are supposed to be politically offensive, were taken from the Encyclopaedia Britannica, and other text books.’
In the wake of the journal’s actions, and claims of mass protests about the article, several scientists have now written to the society to support Arnaiz-Villena and to protest about their heavy-handedness.

One of them said: ‘If Arnaiz-Villena had found evidence that Jewish people were genetically very special, instead of ordinary, you can be sure no one would have objected to the phrases he used in his article. This is a very sad business.’

Anti-Zionist Jews

Anti-Zionist Jews

THE INVENTION OF ZIONISM

“[a]t a certain stage in the 19th century intellectuals of Jewish origin in Germany, influenced by the folk character of German nationalism, took upon themselves the task of inventing a people “retrospectively,” out of a thirst to create a modern Jewish people. From historian Heinrich Graetz on, Jewish historians began to draw the history of Judaism as the history of a nation that had been a kingdom, became a wandering people and ultimately turned around and went back to its birthplace.

Zionism (Hebrew: ציונות‎, Tsiyonut) is a form of nationalism of Jews and Jewish culture that supports a Jewish nation state in territory defined as the Land of Israel. Zionism supports Jews upholding their Jewish identity and opposes the assimilation of Jews into other societies and has advocated the return of Jews to Israel

In 1975, the United Nations General Assembly passed a resolution that designated Zionism as “a form of racism and racial discrimination”.

Readings of the founders of Zionism shows that they lived in the same Europe which spawned fascism and Naziism, and they adopted the anti-Jewish view that Jews did not belong in Europe as the core of their ideology

Rabbi rejects Israel and zionism

Rabbi rejects Israel and zionism

Haredi rabbis do not consider Israel to be a halachic Jewish state because it is secular.Others reject any possibility of a Jewish state, since according to them a Jewish state is completely forbidden by Jewish law, and a Jewish state is considered an oxymoron

Many other Hasidic groups, most famously the Satmar Hasidim as well as the larger movement they are part of in Jerusalem, the Edah HaChareidis, are strongly anti-Zionist. One of the best known Hasidic opponent of all forms of modern political Zionism was Hungarian rebbe and Talmudic scholar Joel Teitelbaum. In his view, the current State of Israel, which was founded by people that included some anti-religious personalities in seeming violation of the traditional notion that Jews should wait for the Jewish Messiah, is seen as contrary to Judaism.

THE ZIONIST INVENTION OF MODERN ISRAEL

A short historical quiz: 
Which state:

a. Arose after a Holocaust in which a third of its people were destroyed?

b. Drew from that Holocaust the conclusion that only superior military forces could ensure its survival?

c. Accorded the army a central role in its life, making it “an army that had a state, rather than a state that 
had an army”?

d. Began by buying the land it took, and continued to expand by conquest and annexation?

e. Endeavoured by all possible means to attract new immigrants?

f. Conducted a systematic policy of settlement in the occupied territories?

g. Strove to push out the national minority by creeping ethnic cleansing?

For anyone who has not yet found the answer: It’s the state of Prussia. But if some readers were tempted to believe that it all applies to the State of Israel — well, they are right, too. This description fits the “Jewish” state. The similarity between the two states is remarkable.

This Prussian effort had a direct impact on the Jewish colonisation of Palestine. It served as an example for the father of Zionist settlement, Arthur Ruppin, and not by accident — he was born and grew up in the Polish area 
of Prussia.

It is impossible to exaggerate the influence of the Prussian model on the Zionist movement in almost all spheres of life. Theodor Herzl, the founder of the movement, was born in Budapest and lived most of his life in Vienna. He admired the new German Reich that was founded in 1871, when he was 11 years old. Herzl’s diaries are full of admiration for the German state.

Herzl was not the only one to imprint a Prussian-German pattern on the Zionist enterprise. In this he was overshadowed by Ruppin, who is known today to Israeli children mainly as a street name. But Ruppin had an immense impact on the Zionist enterprise, more than any other single person.

He was the real leader of the Zionist immigrants in Palestine in their formative period in the first quarter of the 20th century. He was the spiritual father of Berl Katznelson, David Ben-Gurion and their generation, the founders of the Zionist Labour movement that became dominant in the Jewish society in Palestine.

If so, why has he been almost eradicated from official memory? Because some sides of Ruppin are best forgotten. Before becoming a Zionist, he was an extreme Prussian-German nationalist. He was one of the fathers of the “scientific” racist creed and believed in the superiority of the Aryan race. Up to the end he occupied himself with measuring skulls and noses in order to provide support for assorted racist ideas. His partners and friends created the “science” that inspired Hitler and 
his disciples.

GREATER ISRAEL

THE ZIONIST FASCIST EXPANSIONIST WAR PLAN…AND ENDLESS WAR AND SUFFERING

The concept of a “Greater Israel” according to the founding father of Zionism Theodore Herzl, is a Jewish State stretching “’From the Brook of Egypt to the Euphrates.’

Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya on The Yinon Plan (1982) “ … a continuation of Britain’s colonial design in the Middle East”:

Greater Israel

Greater Israel

“(The Yinon plan) is an Israeli strategic plan to ensure Israeli regional superiority. It insists and stipulates that Israel must reconfigure its geo-political environment through the balkanization of the surrounding Arab states into smaller and weaker states.

“Israeli strategists viewed Iraq as their biggest strategic challenge from an Arab state. This is why Iraq was outlined as the centerpiece to the balkanization of the Middle East and the Arab World. In Iraq, on the basis of the concepts of the Yinon Plan, Israeli strategists have called for the division of Iraq into a Kurdish state and two Arab states, one for Shiite Muslims and the other for Sunni Muslims. The first step towards establishing this was a war between Iraq and Iran, which the Yinon Plan discusses.”

At the time Yinon wrote, the eight year, Western driven Iran-Iraq war was into its second year – with another six grinding years of loss, tragedy and heartbreak, valleys of widows, orphans, maimed, on both sides of their common border. The toll on life and health was compared to World War 1. Iraq of course, in an historic error, had virtually been fighting a proxy war for an American regime, even then obsessed with Islam, which, in Iran they had decided was the wrong sort of Islam.(NOT the wrong sort of Islam,abrahamic monotheism is just a divide and rule tool.Unlike paganism which tolerated all gods)

The vision of the super hawk, dreamer of destruction of nations, Lt Colonel Ralph Peters since the early 1990s. Here is his 2006 version Peters is a man whose vision of eternal war is seemingly an eternal wet dream. Here, again, for anyone unaware of the Colonel, is a repeat of that dream (US Army War College Quarterly, Summer 1997):

“There will be no peace. At any given moment for the rest of our lifetimes, there will be multiple conflicts … around the globe. Violent conflict will dominate the headlines, but cultural and economic struggles will be steadier and ultimately more decisive. (US armed forces will keep) the world safe for our economy and open to our cultural assault. To those ends, we will do a fair amount of killing.

“We have entered an age of constant conflict.” Peters would make some of history’s most megalomaniacal expansionists look like gift offering peaceniks. His cartographic monument to arrogance: “The New Map of the Middle East Project”, of geographical restructure in far away places of which he gave less than a damn, was published in the Armed Forces Journal in June 2006.http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-israeli-dream-the-criminal-roadmap-towards-greater-israel/5391839

This is not a new idea, nor does it surface for the first time in Zionist strategic thinking. Indeed, fragmenting all Arab states into smaller units has been a recurrent theme. This theme has been documented on a very modest scale in the AAUG publication, Israel’s Sacred Terrorism (1980), by Livia Rokach. Based on the memoirs of Moshe Sharett, former Prime Minister of Israel

EPILOGUE

The Jewish race is nothing but a myth. Then again arguing with a Zionist is like arguing with a Crusader or a Jihadist.

Telling a child “santa does not exist” is hard but it has to be done and the child comes to terms with this and is still a happy health individual,most figure it out for themselves as they question the facts about santa.Some continue to pay lip service to the belief because they will get presents!

Telling an adult “santa does not exist” is just as vital but a lot more difficult as abrhamic monotheists tend to flee from facts like vampires from sunlight and alot of them have done monsterous things in its name so will delusionally cling the the belief no matter how many FACTS are placed in front of them.

They continue to delude themselves as well and refuse to have thier relics verified as THEY KNOW they will be shown to be false.

These people suffer from mental delusion nothing more ,they should not be allowed to carry out monsterous actions because no-one whats to tell them they are mad and delsuional zionists ,born againers or jihadists !

SO WHAT IS MONOTHEISM?

ORIGINAL MONOTHEISM IS SUN WORSHIP, EGYPTIAN AND PERSIAN AND “ORGANIC” IN ORIGIN.

BUT IT BECAME A USEFUL TOOL OF POWER FOR EMPERORS AND POWER MAD MEGALOMANIACS AND CENTRALISED AUTHORITIES

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM (JUDAISM,CHRISTIANITY ,ISLAM) IS JUST ORIGINAL FASCISM AND AN INVENTION FOR MATERIAL EMPIRE BUILDING.

……OR FOR SPIRITUAL PEOPLE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS MATERIAL ,EVIL WORSHIP CONQUERING NATURE WORSHIP.

IT IS RE-WRITTEN PAGANISM ,AND IN THE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTIC VERSION THE EVIL GOD IS WORSHIPPED

THE SUMMERIAN ENLIL INSTEAD OF ENKI

THE EGYPTIAN SET INSTEAD OF OSIRIS/ISIS/HORUS

THE ORIGINAL SUMMERIAN  “DEAL WITH GOD” POST FLOOD , WAS HUMANITY AGREEING TO CONTROL HIS BREEDING AND

NOT TO GO FORTH AND MULTIPLY!!!!!

….SO ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISTS IT SEEMS YOU ARE BEING DECIEVED BY A GODLIKE ENTITY?

I WONDER WHO THAT WOULD BE?

YOUR BOOKS ARE LIES ,YOU HOLY MEN SEXUAL PERVERTS ,

AND YOU PRACTICE HUMAN SACRIFICE IN THE NAME OF YOUR GOD (RELIGIOUS MURDER ,ONE ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEIST SACRIFICING ANOTHER,OFTEN IN THE “HOLY LAND” A LAND OF IGNORANCE, LIES AND BIGGORTRY)

THE HEBREWS WHERE A MIXTURE OF PEOPLES MAINLY SEMITIC BUT WITH AN ARYAN RULING SECT AND THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A JEWISH OR HEBREW RACE!!!

The modern Jews have virtually no connection with the ancient Hebrews, Palestinians have more genetic connection with the ancient Hebrews.

TORAH/OLD TESTAMENT MONOTHEISM IS THE BOOK OF SET! Thus the modern Jews and Christians are SET WORSHIPPERS!!!!!Explains a lot doesn’t it!

FYI

NEW TESTAMENT MONOTHEISM IS THE BOOK OF MITHRA!

It is Horus Mithra Sun worship twisted , that’s why the sun worship regalia used to be big hats and an Ankh(Symbol of LIFE)it is now big hats and a cross(symbols of death and torture) but we still have halo’s to show divinity.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH BEING JEWISH

ITS JUST THE SAME AS BEING AN AMERICAN OR A FREEMASON

THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT A RACE THERE ARE NO GENETIC MARKERS FOR THESE PEOPLE

IT IS A GROUP OF PEOPLE THAT HOLD THE SAME BELIEF OR CULTURAL IDENTITY

NOTHING EVIL IN THAT

ULTIMATLY BELIEF IS IRRELEVANT

PEOPLE CAN BELIEVE THE STRANGEST THINGS BUT STILL SHARE THE SAME GOOD VALUES

AND BELIEVING IN GOD ,JUST LIKE BELIEVING IN SANTA CLAUS, IT DOES NOT MEAN YOU ARE ON HIS “NICE LIST”

SO YOU BELIEVE IN GOD ,BIG DEAL

…..BUT DOES GOD BELIEVE IN YOU?

IT WOULD BE GODS BELIEF IN YOU THAT MATTERED

NOT YOUR BELIEF IN GOD …OR GODS OR GODDESSES

BE GOOD , STRIVE TO BE HAPPY AND DO THE RIGHT THING , THAT IS ALL ANY MAN OR GOD CAN ASK

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS JUST ORIGINAL FASCISM

RELIGIOUS FASCISM IS NOT SPRITUAL

RELIGIOUS FASCISM IS NOT ENLIGHTENING

ABRAHAMIC MONOTHEISM IS FOR THE ANTI-SPIRITUAL AND ANTI-ENLIGHTENED ..AND FOR THOSE THAT KNOW NO DIFFERENT

IT IS DESIGNED TO KEEP YOU SCARED AND IGNORANT AND TO CONTROL THE POPULATION

IT IS THE BELIEF OF SLAVES
