    Recommended reading.
    Title - Eden in Egypt.
    Author – Ralph Ellis.
    ISBN 1-931882-40-1.

    But a word of caution, as you read remember the Hyksos are simply another African tribe of Egypt. It is as I spoke earlier, Egypt as an Empire became divided between Monotheism and Polytheism a Theocratic Monarchy and Democracy.

    Here is an interesting review of the book:

    EDEN IN EGYPT: A Translation of the Book of Genesis From the Original Egyptian Text, Ralph Ellis, 2004, Amolibros (EDFU Books)

    The story of Adam and Eve from the Book of Genesis is perhaps one of the best known stories in circulation, even today, and yet nobody really knows where this tale came from or what it means. But even a cursory glance at the text will demonstrate the origins of this tale, for the river of Eden is described as having four branches. There is only one river in this part of the world that fits this description, and that is the Nile; with the four branches forming the Nile Delta. Here, then, is the true crucible for the Genesis story - Egypt.

    We already know that Judaism was based upon the reign of the pharaoh Akhenaton, because the solitary Judaic god was known as 'Adhon,' meaning "ruler," while this pharaoh's solitary god was called 'Aten,' or 'Adonai.' But on reading the early chapters of Genesis with a more critical eye, it became apparent that this story was simply a re-telling of Pharaoh Akhenaton's 'Hymn to the Aten.' Again we know that the early Israelites knew of the 'Hymn to the Aten,' because a section is also included in Psalms. But what of the identities of Adam and Eve?

    The pathway towards enlightenment was illuminated by the discovery that Hebrew was based upon the ancient Egyptian language. This would actually make a great deal of common sense, as the Israelites were once the leaders of Egypt and would originally have spoken Egyptian (Joseph, according to the Bible, was prime minister of all Egypt). It seems certain that Adam and Eve were actually Pharaoh Akhenaton and his famous wife Queen Nefertiti. The nickname of Adam was used because Adam means 'red,' and Akhenaton was the king of Lower Egypt and wore the Red Crown.

    In a similar fashion, Eve received her pseudonym because the name means 'naked' and 'swollen' in the Egyptian. Adam and Eve were famed for their innocent nakedness, and yet it is known that Akhenaton and Nefertiti also lived in an idyllic state of near nakedness, and were curiously depicted with swollen limbs. The story of the downfall of Adam and Eve is a reflection of the downfall of this Egyptian royal couple, for Akhenaton and Nefertiti were deposed. Their fate is not precisely known, but it would seem likely from the various accounts that they went into exile in the north of Egypt, and thus their fall from grace was every bit as dramatic and humiliating as that of Adam and Eve.

    And yes, when forced from their idyllic existence in the palace at Amarna, Akhenaton and Nefertiti would have been faced with the gaping throngs of the common people, and would have been forced to clothe themselves. Here then, is the story of Adam and Eve. It was not a tale about the beginning of the Universe, instead it was the traditional celebration of a new day, which brought new life. It was not a story about the first couple on Earth, it was a history of the life of the 'first couple,' just as the president's wife is known as the 'first lady.'

    SHUQ'RAN for this, AQI.

    What precisely, if at all, does this book say about the HYKSOS? Does it mention them explicitly? If so, does it mention their origins?

    We must also bear in mind, that according to the Kemau themselves, the Hyksos were visually depicted as Eurasian (pale skinned), and were referred to as "the invaders from the North".

    These were NOT an African tribe of people in the slightest.

    PEACE

    That’s what white people want you to believe. White people had nothing to do with Egypt as an Empire. The Greeks received their knowledge of theology and government from black Africans.

    If you accredit white people as being the Hyksos then you are saying Akhenaten was white, you are saying Tutankhamun was white, you are saying Ay was white. I do not understand why you believe all of these great African leaders where white people.

    It seems you fall write into their scheme of scrubbing the color off some Egyptian artifacts and smashing the noses of some Egyptian statues.

    I use to think that the damage that can be seen to the faces of several Egyptian artifacts and wall paintings was simply due to erosion but know it has come to light that white people did that in an attempt to hide that Egyptians and all thing related to Egypt was and is African.

    I suspect the only time white people entered Egypt in full force was during what is called the Roman occupation. Other than that it was all ran by African tribes.

    One thing I noticed in the book is the author makes reference to Hyksos originally being called the Aamu People. Due to my reading of other books I noticed the author neglects to reveal the similarity in sound between Aamu and the Anu.

    Is it possible that the Hyksos where simply the original people of Egypt as The Anu People and returned to Egypt to reclaim the land they had originally established?

    I think it is highly possible because the Anu people date back to pre-dynastic Egypt and as travelers / explores they would have continued in a North Eastern direction after exiting Egypt from the Delta which if they returned to Egypt they would come from the North East, just as the so called Hyksos.

    You have to be cautious when reading the works of the white man because they want you to believe that all civilization started with them and we have evidence as to their lies and brainwashing of black people and tribes to make you believe that.

    A white man did not wear the Red Crown of Lower Egypt.

    I am starting to hear a lot of things but what I don’t understand is why we have black people continuing to believe and argue that white people had anything to do with Egypt or the Holy Scriptures.

    What would be the gain in promoting white people as being ruler’s and establishers of Egypt an African country?

    How would a black man benefit from that train of thought?

    You made a statement in your post #3 that my post #7 addresses. Who told you the Hyksos originally called (Aamu, Am) are white people?

    Simply through exploring the sound of the original name of the Hyksos, which is found in the Hebrew script in Gen 11:6 where GOD refers to “The People” the Hebrew word is Am which became Aamu which I suspect is a corruption of the original Anu people who where the establishers of Kemet.

    The Hyksos were nothing more then the original descendants of the Anu returning to Kemet. They may or may not have become mixed with white people because we truly don’t know how far they traveled before returning home.

    As I study more and more I see it becomes possible that Terah of Geneses may have even been an Egyptian representation of Tera Neter of Kemet. As you can see in the story line of the Old Testament Terah’s family descendants turned around or was exiled from Babylon and returned to Egypt.

    Could that return be what has become know as the invasion of the Hyksos (Aamu / Anu)?

    I don’t see how you can follow a religion that claims to be of Egyptian origin but yet reject one of the greatest Egyptian mysteries of history ever recorded.
