    From the African concept of Yururgu,
    to the Kemetic concept of Set the one with red hair and the head of a swine,
    who dismembered the bringer of civilization Auser
    what is the Yoruba Ife understanding of Set,

    the root word for Satan?

    I'm not evading anything. If set is the root word, i take it to have the same overall meaning. why don't you explain what your question is a little better? explain set. then i'll try again

    Acccording to our Kemetic heritage Set the swine headed neteru, known as Typhon to the Greeks and Romans, slew Auser or as the Greeks revered him Osiris, the father of civilization and agriculture,cut his body into many parts, scattering them all over, however Auset or Isis his wife was able to reunite his parts and bring life back to him.

    from wikipedia
    Satan (Hebrew: השָׂטָן ha-Satan ("the accuser"); Arabic: الشيطان al-Shaitan ("the adversary") - both from the Semitic root: Ś-Ṭ-N) is an embodiment of antagonism that originates from the Abrahamic religions, being traditionally considered an angel in Judeo-Christian belief, and a Jinn in Islamic belief. Originally, the term was used as a title for various entities that challenged the religious faith of humans in the Hebrew Bible. Since then, the Abrahamic religions have used "Satan" as a name for the Devil.

    (Note that the Kemetic language when written contained no vowels s we know it,
    therefore;
    Set would be written hieroglyphicaly as STand with the adding of a N it would be STN

    Well, I have a different account of who Typhon is, but it's not important for answering your question. Or, should I say, not answering your question. As far as I know, the Yoruba are do not "have an understanding of set." Looks to me like you are saying set was the precursor for the Abrahamic Satan. What is your point?

    Hey I could be wrong, this is not a soap box or a lecture it is a discussion, we all have the general good of the Global Black community at heart, but we have differences regading religion as Malcolm said should not seperate us from that goal, so realy this is casual conversation regading information and the shareing of it.
    At one time Set had a different meaning as wel, therefore for the sake of the group what is your understanding of Typhon
