    This is from the Yoruba religion. Olodumare, is also Olorun, literary meaning "the owner of the heavens". The highest deity in the Heirarchy of Yoruba gods/orishas. He is what westerners call God or Jehovah.

    So my next question becomes……
    If the writer of the Metu Neter is using the religion of the Yoruba People why is Olodumare not the fist Sphere of the Tree of Life or Being?

    Because Olodumare is a correspondence to Amen, not Ausar. Amen is Sphere Zero, not Sphere One. The correspondence to the First Sphere is Obatala, proving yet again that you neither know the true attribution of the Kamitic deities, nor those of the Yoruba pantheon, disqualifying you yet again from speaking on an African civilization and ATR.

    Define “correspondence”.

    Further more I never said I was a Metu Neter specialist, but I have read Vol 1 and realize it is simply redefines Polytheism.

    But allow me to define Polytheism as the worship, meditation, concentration and or praise of an entity that is historically and theologically recorded and admitted as being created, manifested and or born from a Higher Being.

    Monotheism is the worship, meditation, concentration and or praise of the Highest Being only. Thus in your Metu Neter I would only exist in your Sphere 0.

    Can you tell me (or pm me) the varying spheres and their correspondence to the Yoruba and KMT "deities", I have just begun to do my research in the Metu NEter (amongst other similiar things) and I would REALLY appreciate it.

    The writer of Metu Neter (Ra Un Nefer Amen) is not using the religion of the Yoruba People. On page 2 he says (in plain english) that "I am here presenting a practical syncretism of the best that the Kamitic (Ancient Egyptian), the Dravidian (Black India), and the Canaanite (true authors of Kabala) religions have to offer."

    Is there any particular reason you didn't look up Oludumare yourself? It would have been a simple matter to go to Google and type in "Oludumare"

    You can find all of the correspondences in chapter 19 of Metu Neter.

    Why not look it up yourself? Wouldn't it be better to consult an authoritative source like a dictionary?
    If you have really read vol 1 of Metu Neter and all you got out of it is the erroneous notion that it "simply redefines polytheism," then in reality you got nothing out of it.
    According to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, polytheism is "belief in or worship of more than one god"

    Do you think you know something about polytheism that the dictionary doesn't?

    According to Merriam-Webster's dictionary, monotheism is "the doctrine or belief that there is but one God"

    Do you think you know something about monotheism that the dictionary doesn't?

    See how easy it is to look up things for yourself? You save a lot of embarassment that comes from being shown to be a fabricator of bogus definitions, you know like "polytheism" and "monotheism."
    Since sphere 0 corresponds to "no-things" then what you are saying is that you are nothing, right?

    If you really read Metu Neter like you said you did, you either have a serious comprehension problem, a very poor memory, or you're intentionally misrepresenting its contents. Uh, which is it?

    Exactly!

    And when you continue reading his statement you will run into a reference the author himself uses on page 3 last paragraph ……….

    Supreme Being

    That is the Being, Concept and Understanding that is rejected by followers of the Metu Neter. The author himself relegates the entire system to that Being.
