Ok I have a basic questions on the lessons and I hope that this isn't transfered into a racial issue.
After reading through 18 lessons dealing with the Egyptians and the Hebrews, am I to assume that the Egyptians and the Hebrews were infact one people?
When examining the pictures on the walls, are you proclaiming that the ancient people known as Israelites were in fact of Negroid decent? I have to ask becuase as I have been going through your writings I am prone to feel that we have been lied to because they were trying to ereas the black peoples accomplishments... hummm I don't know how to explain it... do you believe that it is true that our people tried to erase the Negro's history as they proclaim we have? It is interesting because this is what I have found from other historians in response to the Negro's.
Gerald Massey, English writer and author of the book, Egypt the Light of the World, wrote, "The dignity is so ancient that the insignia of the Pharaoh evidently belonged to the time when Egyptians wore nothing but the girdle of the Negro." (p 251)
Sir Richard Francis Burton, a 19th century English explorer, writer and linguist in 1883 wrote to Gerald Massey, "You are quite right about the "AFRICAN" origin of the Egyptians. I have 100 human skulls to prove it."
Scientist, R. T. Prittchett, states in his book The Natural History of Man, "In their complex and many of the complexions and in physical peculiarities the Egyptians were an "AFRICAN" race (p 124-125).
The Ancient Greek historian Herodotus, who visited Egypt in the 5th century B.C.E., saw the Egyptians face to face and described them as "black-skinned with woolly hair".
Anthropologist, Count Constatin de Volney (1727-1820),spoke about the race of the Egyptians that produced the Pharaohs. He later paid tribute to Herodotus' discovery when he said:
The ancient Egyptians were true Negroes of the same type as all native born Africans. That being so, we can see how their blood mixed for several centuries with that of the Romans and Greeks, must have lost the intensity of it's original color, while retaining none the less the imprint of it's original mold. We can even state as a general principle that the face (referring to The Sphinx) is a kind of monument able, in many cases, to attest to or shed light on historical evidence on the origins of the people."
The fact that the ancient Egyptians were black-skin prompted Volney to make the following statement:
"What a subject for meditation, just think that the race of black men today our slaves and the object of our scorn, is the very race to which we owe our arts, science and even the use of our speech."
A Roman historian named Tacitus who lived about C.E. 90 said, "Many assert that the Hebrews are an RACE OF ETHIOPIAN ORIGINS."
Historian and scholar, J.A. Rogers commented, "For the Romans to have considered them Ethiopians is a clear indication of their color, because the Ethiopians are a known black people".
I think by now you can see why I'm questioning this because it would be a terrible thing to have believed all of my life that the people of the bible were white like the Egyptians; just to find that the 18th dynasty, the most descriptive of them all proves the Ancient Egyptians to be Black, not forgetting that they were the Hebrews of the bible.
I have been speaking to this woman named Sopdet and she lives in Egypt, she said that the black people in United States could very well be decendants of the Egyptians if I was to remove my bias believes as most Egyptologist and see it for what it really is. Ironically I have been talking to a lot of Negro's ie, African Americans lately and they are of the opinion without any historical referrence; that they are in-fact the people of the bible and the Egyptians. When asked how do they know, many say it's an internal knowningness..
In my research I have also read this book by ARTHUR KOESTLER "THE THIRTEENTH TRIBE" and it proclaims that the people who are my ancestors are in fact the people of the Khazaria and Ashke[nazi] empire of 450 A.D.
Like I said I don't want this to turn into a race issue, but can you help me to figure this out please. If the 18th Dynasty was in fact Negro in orgins, do you think that it was a ploy (conspiracy thoery) to remove the history of the Negro man and exchange it for our own?
In conclusion, what does this mean and how to we keep this hidden from these people because I'm sure some have found your site.
