Who was the real Serpent in Genesis By Andre Austin The Myth: Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the lord God made (Genesis 3:1) The Reality: Genesis modeled the clever serpent after the Egyptian God Set (Satan), who took the serpent form of Aphophis, enemy of the Egyptian God Re. Adam and Eve were ordered not to eat from the tree of knowledge. Eve came upon the tree and found a serpent dwelling there. The Serpent won over Eve. The secret of the fruit of the tree represents the Egyptian concept of Maat (moral order law), which was reduce down to the ten commandments from the 42 negative confessions or admonitions of Maat from Osiris. Jesus repeated one of its proverbs of truth/Maat sets souls free. Eating Maat gives Souls eternal life in Egypt. Alongside the 42 negative confessions was The Egyptian Judgment of souls Obituary claim declaring in part they gave food to hungry, clothes to naked so was Jesus. Any way back to the tree. The Egyptians had a mythic image of the serpent in a tree. In pictures from this story , the Egyptian artist showed a Cat with a stick bruising the head of a serpent that dwells in a tree. The Cat in this myth is Re, the sun god, and the serpent is Aphophis, the enemy of Re who tries to swallow the sun at the end of each day. Whites who lack melanin would naturally not see the sun in whole as friendly to them. The original curse on Canaan was directed at Re who went by several different names. The curse evolve from religious to racial in later times. Re is pictured bruising the head of the serpent exactly like God directing Adam to bruise the serpent head and its progeny after the expulsion from Eden which is the City of On, helipolis where Moses was expelled as a Egyptian. The Egyptians often identified Aphophis with the God Set, a clever and ambitious deity who wanted to seize the Egyptian throne from his brother Osiris. Towards this purpose, he conspired with allies to assassinate his brother Osiris and usurp the monarchy. Set cut Osiris up into 14 parts put Isis put him back together except for the missing penis. Circumcision ritual comes from the missing penis of Osiris not from a covenant with Abraham. Osiris survived his death and became king of the afterworld. This brings us full circle with the serpent and the tree of knowledge. In the afterlife souls had to prove to Osiris they lived in maat (Truth/righteousness). This contradicted the religious principles of the Hebrew monotheism and the mythical images of Osiris had to be banned. With the serpent in the tree corresponding to Set (Satan), the killer of Osiris, we have an ironic denouement. As punishment for seeking immortality by worshiping an Egyptian Osiris, the sinner lost immortality through the actions of Osiris mortal enemy, the wily and subtle Set. Just like the Hyksos who militarily took over Lower Egypt and dedicated their headquarters to Set, the Jews who joined an alliance with the Hyksos embraced Set when it suited their purpose of attacking the Egyptian religion.
