I was curious as to whether there had been any discussion as to the possibility that the early egyptian pharoahs or the aamu could have been "chinese" in origen and that they brought a form of Taoism with them that combined with Egyptian beliefs birthed Atenism. An all-encompassing presence of God without face or description. I find it noteworthy to mention that Jesus/Joshua/Tut proclaims that he is "the way, the truth, and the life" all possible translations of the word, Tao. Also, the cities of Qufu and Xi'an have both significance and resonance in Egyptian/Semitic history and folklore. Could Xi'an have been the Zion of idealistic hebrews longing for a home? The captured memory of a city described to them by wandering caravans of chinese traders along the silk road. Could Joseph have been traded to "chinese" caravans along this road and converted to their taoistic beliefs? I am anxious to hear your thoughts on this.
