The Pharaoh of Egypt was considered to be an
immaculately conceived resurrected
form of the god Osiris carried in an
Avatar that held Osiris' son, Horus'
essence which was
homoousion. Although Pharaoh
was considered to be a descended god his queen was considered to be a
The sons of Pharaoh were immaculately
conceived. Born of a virgin queen impregnated - not by a mortal man - but by
the god Horus carried on Earth in the physical form of the body of Pharaoh
which acted as an Avatar of the Divine.
Pharaoh Amenhotep III and
Queen Tiye had two known sons. When the elder brother died as a teenager
Pharaoh Amenhotep III had to
brand his wife as
the goddess Neith as she obviously
was not a virgin after having given birth previously. The goddess
Neith was considered to have given
birth while remaining a virgin. This made the second son, rebranded Amenhotep
IV, able to fulfill the mandate of being born of a virgin which assured the
Pharaoh's lineage of succession. Strict religious traditionalists
most likely considered this
heretical at the time.
was educated in the court of Amenhotep III in the royal capital of Memphis, and
later in 1375 BC, after being branded the god Horus at the religious capital of
Thebes, Amenhotep IV ascended to the throne at the age of 18.
Amenhotep IV quickly wrought nothing less than a complete
revolution in religion, art,
Amenhotep IV did away with the old gods,
which were generally portrayed with human bodies and the heads of animals. In
the place of the old gods, Amenhotep IV decreed that there was only one God, the god
of his father and grandfather - Aten, symbolized by the
Sun Disc. Amenhotep IV
changed his name to
Akhenaten, which means roughly, "The
useful Son of the Sun Disc," and
began replacing the names of the old gods from temples and public buildings
with gods being combined and blended into
Aten. The difference between
night and day became, simply,
that Aten was not present at
night. No longer did other
gods rule the dark.
"The real revolution implied
thought patterns, in which all the
traditional forms were bathed in the glare of a new light which the traditional
Egyptians came to find intolerable. Beginning with the change in the king's
birth name, from which the name of the (state god)
Amun was removed, there was a
step-by-step process of elimination.
Amun was replaced by
Aten, mythical statement by rational
statement, many-valued logic by
two-valued logic, the gods by God. All this was accomplished according to a
well-conceived plan." - Erik Hornung
"Akhenaten was not a visionary but rather
a methodical rationalist.
Akhenaten was a rational
philosopher who took the throne of
perhaps the most powerful empire on earth at that time, and implemented reforms
one by one as soon as the necessary political conditions had been created.
Akhenaten manipulated the power of the
priestly institutions at his command very brilliantly. The new religion could
be summed up as there is no god but Aten, and
Akhenaten is his prophet. " - Jimmy
Akhenaten was the first head of state on
the Earth to decree monotheism and
embrace the concept of one God. Akhenaten called himself the Son of Aten,
prefiguring the legend of Christ.
Akhenaten also provoked a change in art.
In the long history of Egyptian art, Pharaohs were generally presented as ideal
figures, with athletic bodies and
handsome faces. Portraits and statues made
during Akhenaten's rule were much more
realistic in style, often showing
Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti,
Akhenaten's Chief Royal Wife, in
intimate, affectionate poses or with their children, six daughters, on their
laps. At times, Akhenaten is shown
riding with Nefertiti in a chariot, kissing Nefertiti in public and with
Nefertiti sitting on his knee. Akhenaten himself was portrayed with a
long, narrow face, wide hips on a somewhat deformed body, a small potbelly, and
unusually long fingers and toes.
variety of evidence suggests that
Akhenaten may have suffered from
Marfan syndrome, a genetic disorder that
alienated him from his family.
Marfan sufferers recall feelings of rejection and
childhood. As a result of the disease and Akhenaten's unusual appearance his family
most likely shunned him and that
isolation may have led
him to reject the gods of the old
religion. The connective tissue defect was shared by
sired Tutankhamun (meaning "Living
Image of Aten), likely by the royal wife Kiya.
Each of the royal women had her own
sanctuary, frequently called a sunshade temple, usually situated in a parkland
environment of vegetation
and water pools. Crucially important to Akhenaten was
renewel of creation through
reproduction, basic to Akhenaten's
personal life, but also in the daily renewal of
creation affected by Aten. Another change
Akhenaten wrought was the elevation of
women. Akhenaten compares with
Muhammad ibn 'Abdullāh and
Siddhartha Gautama in
founding a religion respectful of women as human beings.
In the fourth
year of his reign, Akhenaten decided
to build his own capital city, and he chose the
site now known as Tell el-Amarna, midway between Memphis and Thebes. To speed
changed the way buildings were put
In the past, public buildings had been put together
with large blocks of sandstone, often weighing as much as 12-1/2 tons.
decreed that the masons use blocks that
averaged only about 10 inches square and 20 inches long, making them much
easier to transport and assemble. They were quarried from a soft sandstone that
could be easily shaped. (The Harappans used the same sized bricks, which they
fired, and standard weights in 2500 BC, 1200 years earlier than Akhentan used
bricks and 1500 years earlier than the Chinese fired brick. The Masons that
built the cathedrals of Europe used nearly the same size stones. The reason is
simple - it takes only one man to lift and place the building
As a result, Akhenaten
moved to the new city,
called Akhetaten, or "Horizon of the Sun Disc",
within two years after
construction began. Elaborate drawing and
narratives were carved onto the
outside of the buildings and painted. Akhenaten built eight
structures at East Karnak, some the
size of four football fields. This method of building was abadoned at the end
of the reign of Akhenaten.
Unfortunately their was a backlash to this
revolution in thought. Cracks can be
seen in the Egyptian empire , and they became ever more evident during the
reign of Akhenaten.
as the latter years of Amenhotep III foreign holdings were neglected. During
Akhenaten's reign the civil and
military authority was left to Ay, 'Father of God', possibly
Akhenaten's father-in-law, and general
Horemheb. Ay and Horemheb both eventually became kings before the end of the
18th Dynasty, and Horemheb particularly was instrumental in reversing the
Egyptian state religion back to its previous traditional form.
Many of the followers of
Aten, the inhabitants of Akhetaten, fled from
Eygpt when the Egyptian state religion was converted back to its previous
traditional form. This wandering tribe came to be known as the
Hebrews. The main difference between
Akhenaten's one god and the one god of
Moshe Rabbenu, who lived during
Akhenaten's reign, is that
focused on the creative aspects of his
one God - the reproduction of life, the daily resurrection of the life giving
warmth of the sun, the seasonal life giving aspects of the waters of the Nile,
etcetera whereas the god of Moshe Rabbenu, although
still the God of Creation, has a nomadic warrior characteristic as manifested
in Yahweh rather than a settled
fertility god like Osirapis.
Contrary to the rumor
that the entire race of Hebrews were enslaved by Pharaoh they worked for
Pharaoh. Joseph (Yosef), who was sold into slavery by his brothers,
became Pharaoh's trusted adviser. The myth that the Egyptians used only
slaves to build the
pyramid is false. The Egyptians planted and harvested in the
proper seasons and after harvest they went down to the city to work as
craftsman in the construction of the
Near a Giza pyramid
was discovered the first bottled beer factory. Those bottles have been found
scattered at places of habitation throughout the Mediterranean Sea basin. "The
mouth of a perfectly contented man is filled with beer," according to the
ancient Egyptians, and on that basis it was a happy society. Bare-breasted
women engaged in sudsy brewing work adorn tomb paintings and clay models from
the dynastic period. To slake his thirst, each laborer on the
pyramids got a daily beer allotment of
1 1/3 gallons. Everyone partied at the annual celebration of the Drunkenness of

Heliopolitan Theological System
The Heliopolitan Theological System declares that in the
beginning there was nothing but immense chaos,
Nun, thought to be an ocean or
shapeless magma containing, none the less potential life. In this chaos there
had been a conscious principle in existence since antiquity began, the god
Atum, whose name means "the Whole," "the
Complete," emphasized his abstract
and somewhat metaphysical nature. This deification was the first of a divine
line with each ensuring generation representing one aspect or element of the
Alone and without any female counterpart, Atum succeeded in
fertilizing himself to produce the first divine couple,
Tefnut. Su was the
personification of air, in the
sense of the void, and also in the sense of a life giving substance, whereas
his sister/consort, Tefnut, whose role was less clearly defined, represented
the moisture in the
atmosphere. From this first couple came
Geb, the male deification of earth,
and Nut, the female deification of
water, making the second couple. Su was
depicted standing in between the two raising and holding the body of the
sky-goddess above the earth god.
From the second couple came
four more divinities: Osiris and Isis, Seth and Nephthys. This Heliopolitan
System continued morphing gods until there were eight gods, nine including Amun
who ruled the entire universe. Amun eventually became associated with Ra, the
Egyptian sun god.
In the days before Ra had left the earth, before he
had begun to grow old, his great wisdom told him that if the goddess Nut bore
children, one of them would end his reign among men. So Ra laid a curse upon
Nut - that she should not be able to bear any child upon any day in the year.
Full of sorrow, Nut went for help to Thoth, the thrice-great god of
wisdom/magic/learning, Ra's son. Thoth knew that the curse of Ra, once spoken,
could never be recalled, but in his wisdom he found a way of escape. Thoth went
to Khonsu, the moon god, and challenged him to a contest at draughts. Game
after game they played and Thoth always won. The stakes grew higher and higher.
Khonsu wagered his own light and lost. At last Khonsu would play no more.
Then Thoth the thrice-great in wisdom/magic/learning gathered up the
light and made it into five extra days which were set between the end of the
old year and the beginning of the new. Since his match with Thoth, Khonsu the
moon has not had enough light to shine throughout the month, but dwindles into
darkness and then grows to his full glory again; for he had lost the light
needed to make five whole days.
On the first of these five new days
Osiris, the eldest son of Nut, was born, and the second day was set aside to be
the birthday of Horus the Elder. On the third day the second son of Nut was
born, dark Seth, the lord of evil. On the fourth Isis first saw the light, and
her second daughter Nephthys on the fifth. In this way the curse of Ra was both
fulfilled and defeated: for the days on which the children of Nut were born
belonged to no year.
Isis, by her craft, learned
the secret name of Ra leaving Osiris to become sole ruler of Egypt and reign on
earth as Ra had done before him. Osiris and Isis found the people both savage
and brutish, fighting among themselves while killing and eating one another.
Isis discovered barley and millet. Osiris taught the people how to plant the
seeds when the Nile had risen in the yearly inundation leaving fresh fertile
mud over the fields; how to tend and water the crops; how to cut the millet
when it was ripe; how to thresh the grain on the threshing floors, dry it and
grind it to flour and make it into bread.
Osiris showed them also how to plant vines and make the grapes into wine; and
they knew already how to brew beer out of the barley as their grain had gotten
wet before. When the people of Egypt had learned to make bread and cut only the
flesh of animals Osiris taught were suitable, he went on to teach them Law, and
how to live peacefully together, delighting themselves with art, music and
poetry. As soon as Egypt was filled with peace and plenty, Osiris set out
across the land to bring his blessings upon other nations.
was away he left Isis to rule over the land, which she did both wisely and
Seth envied Osiris and hated Isis. The more the people loved and
praised Osiris, the more Seth hated him; and the more good Osiris did and the
happier mankind became, the stronger grew Seth's desire to kill Osiris and rule
in his place. When Osiris returned from his travels Seth was among the first to
welcome him back and kneel in reverence before "the good god Pharaoh Osiris".
Seth obtained the exact measurements of the body of Osiris, and caused a
beautiful chest to be made that would fit only him. It was fashioned of the
rarest and most costly woods: cedar brought from Lebanon, and
ebony from Punt at the south end of the Red Sea for no wood grows in Egypt
except the soft and useless palm.
Seth gave a great feast in honor of
Osiris. When the heart of Osiris had been made glad with feasting and song the
chest was brought in, and all were amazed at its beauty. Osiris marveled at the
rare cedar inlaid with ebony and
ivory, with less rare gold and silver, and painted inside with figures of gods
in birds and animal forms. Osiris desired it greatly.
"I will give this
chest to whosoever fits it most exactly!" cried Seth.
"Let me see if I
will fit into this marvelous crafted chest," said Osiris, and he laid down in
"It is yours indeed, and shall be so forever!" hissed Seth,
the Deceiver, as he banged down the lid and sealed it with molten
Seth took the chest containing the body of Osiris and cast it into
the Nile. As the chest floated toward the great green sea it became hung in the
reeds of an island in the marshes of the delta.
Seth came hunting wild
boars with his dogs, hunting by night after his custom, since he loved the
darkness in which evil things abound. By the light of the moon he saw the chest
of cedar wood inlaid with ebony
and ivory, with gold and silver, and recognized it.
At the sight anger
overcame him in a red cloud, Seth flew into a rage and rendered like a panther
of the south. Seth tore open the chest, took the body of Osiris, and rent it
into many pieces which he scattered up and down the Nile so that the crocodiles
might eat them. Isis missing Osiris begin to search for him. Nephthys left her
wicked husband Seth and came to join her sister, Isis. Anubis, the son of
Osiris and Nephthys, taking the form of a jackal, assisted in the search.
As Isis searched along the Nile and among the many streams of the delta
she made her way in a boat made of papyrus. The crocodiles, in their reverence
for the goddess, touched neither the rent pieces of Osiris nor Isis herself.
Indeed ever afterwards anyone who sailed the Nile in a boat made of papyrus was
safe from them, for they thought that it was Isis still questing after the
pieces of her husband's body.
Isis gathered the pieces together,
rejoined them by magic, caused the body to be embalmed and hidden away in a
tomb of which she alone knew. After this the spirit of Osiris passed into
Amenti to rule over the dead until the last great battle, when Horus should
slay Seth and Osiris would return to earth once more.
As Horus grew in this world the spirit of
Osiris visited him often and taught him all that a great warrior should know -
how to fight Seth in both body and spirit -
a final battle
between good and evil. When Osiris knew that the time had come for Horus to
declare war on Seth he bade him gather together a great army and sail up the
Nile to attack him in the deserts of the south.
This theological system
which began in the Delta, at Heliopolis not far from the head of the Delta, was
very well accepted because Amun could easily be made the chief god in any local
area, or a local goddess could become his consort, which eventually increased
the Egyptian pantheon. Hammurabi, the
Babylonian, added gods of local surrounding tribes just as the Egyptians had
done. Later, following the same model of
empire building the Roman Catholics added Saints. The acceptance of the sun
god, Amum/Ra, fit the mindset of the ancient tribes living along the Nile as
Amum/Ra was seen everday in a papyrus barque crossing the ocean of the sky.

In front of the
towering golden sandstone entrance to the temple of Edfu stands an imposing
granite statue of a falcon, about 12-feet tall, representing Horus. Sculpted
into Horus' chest is a small figure of a Ptolemy. To buttress his political
legitimacy, the alien neo-pharaoh carved himself into the stone of a powerful
god. The rulers of Egypt had been
playing this game for 5,000 years.
More than three millenniums before
the birth of Jesus of Nazareth, when
ancient Europeans were still wandering the primal forests the first dynasty of
the Pharaohs had already built a unified kingdom down the valley of the Nile,
and they were treated as descended gods.
The Pharaohs presented
themselves as children and intimates of the sun god
Osiris and of their divine offspring -
Horus. Ra, the sun god, went through a daily cycle of death and rebirth, dying
at the end of each day and being reborn in the morning as Ra-Horakhty, and it
was through this cycle that the blessed dead traveled so as to enjoy rebirth
along with the sun.
Local deities in the Mediterranean region were

Everything changed when Ptolemy I Soter declared himself
Pharaoh of Egypt in 305 BC and created a powerful Hellenistic dynasty that
ruled an area stretching from southern Syria to Cyrene and south to Nubia.
Ptolemy's family ruled Egypt for nearly three centuries until the Roman
conquest of 30 BC.
The Ptolemaic successors of
III of Macedonia promoted Serapis, a deliberate blending of
gods worshiped by the tribes surrounding the Mediterranean with the most well
known Greek and Roman gods.
At the Greco-Roman temple of Philae, you
see a mother-and-child image sculpted on the walls of the sanctuary, but the
face of the mother has been chiseled away. In a Christian time,
Isis was rebranded Mary, turning
Horus into Christ.
"Politics, seen from this perspective of
5,000 years of Egyptian history, is something very different from what you find
in American civics textbooks. It's not about the installation of this or that
logically and legally constructed political system, based on this or that
rulers borrowing, bending and
merging gods, ideologies and legal
systems, adapting to internal and external forces, mixing
coercion and patronage, sharing some of the
spoils where necessary, but always with the goal of maximizing their own power
and wealth and hanging on to it for as long possible - for yourself, and your
children, and your children's children.
Those who take the legitimating
religion or ideology too seriously
- be it Osirisism or socialism -
are missing the point. The gods are continually morphing; what
endures over the millenniums is men's lust
for power and wealth and their vain quest for immortality." - Timothy Garton

Seth was a
homosexual and tryed to prove his dominance by seducing Horus and sodomizing
him. Horus pretends to submit, gives Seth a hand job between his thighs,
catches Seth's semen and then throws it in the river, so that he may not be
said to have been inseminated by Seth. Horus then deliberately spreads his own
semen on some lettuce, which was Seth's favorite food. After Seth has eaten the
lettuce, they go to the deities to try to settle the argument over the
rule of Egypt. The
deities first listen to Seth's claim of
dominance over Horus, and call his semen forth, but it answers from the river,
invalidating his claim. Then, the deities
listen to Horus' claim of having dominated Seth, and call his semen forth, and it
answers from inside Seth. In consequence, Horus is declared the

cult of the Apis bull started at the very beginning of Egyptian history as a
fertility god connected to grain and the herds. In the land of Canaan the Apis
bull was known as Baal. Osirapis was the sacred bull of Memphis after its death
according to the hieroglyphic texts which were found on stelae and other
objects in the Serapeum at Sakkara. Serapis was a syncretistic deity derived
from the worship of the Egyptian Osiris and Apis (Osiris + Apis =
Greek and Roman authors have much to say about Apis,
the marks by which the black bull-calf was recognized, the manner of his
conception by a ray from heaven, his house at Memphis with court for disporting
himself, the mode of prognostication from his actions, the mourning at his
death, his costly burial, and the rejoicings throughout the country when a new

king's courageous heart, great strength, virility, and fighting

a center of

writings), was produced here.
Ptolemy I succeeded
Alexander III of
Macedonia and assumed the traditional title of pharaoh in 304 BC. Ptolemy I
Soter I (Ptolemy the Savior) promoted
Serapis while adding Hellenistic overtones most notable in the use of a human
formed idol rather than an animal idol and thus the followers of Serapis
endorsed him as the patron of Alexandria.
The composite term Serapis is
found around the start of the first century BC, for example in Aegyptiaca by
Hecataeus of Abdera, and in works by Leon of Pella. At the time of the birth of
Jesus of Nazareth the Gnostic Mystery
of the Serapis was well ensconced in Alexandria.
"When in ancient times
a pestilence arose in Egypt, the common people ascribed their troubles to the
workings of a divine agency; for indeed with many strangers of all sorts
dwelling in their midst and practicing different rites of religion and
sacrifice, their own traditional observances in honor of the gods had fallen
Hence the natives of the land
surmised that unless they removed the foreigners, their troubles would
never be resolved. At once, therefore, the aliens were driven from the country,
and the most outstanding and active among them banded together and, as some
say, were cast ashore in Greece and certain other regions; their leaders were
notable men, chief among them being Danaus and Cadmus. But the greater number
were driven into what is now called Judaea, which is not far distant from Egypt
and was at that time utterly uninhabited.
The colony was headed by a man called
Moses (Moshe Rabbenu), outstanding both
for his wisdom and for his courage. On taking possession of the land he
founded, beside other cities, one that is now the most renowned of all, called
Jerusalem. In addition he established the temple that they hold in chief
veneration, instituted their forms of worship and ritual, drew up their laws
and ordered their political institutions.
He (Moshe Rabbenu) also divided them
into twelve tribes, since this is regarded as the most perfect number and
corresponds to the number of months that make up a year. He had no images
whatsoever of the gods made for them, being of the opinion that God is not in
human form; rather the Heaven that surrounds the earth is alone divine, and
rules the universe.
The sacrifices that he established differ from
those of other nations, as does their way of living, for as a result of their
own expulsion from Egypt he introduced a kind of misanthropic and inhospitable
way of life." - Aegyptiaca by Hecataeus of Abdera

buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass
media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the
family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the
corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and
coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
