Origins of miraculous conception in ancient Egypt

MIRACULOUS conception has been discovered to be in existence in the formative stages of Zoroastrian-based Mithraism of the Roman Empire, Vedic Hinduism and Buddhism, both of India.

An older civilisation was in Egypt and we wish to establish if miraculous conception also existed. Ancient Egyptians (from around 4,500 BCE to around 333 BCE) called themselves ‘Kemetiu’ (black or dark-brown skinned people), and their land, KMT.

“Kemet” (“keh-MET”) means “Black Land,” in reference to the fertile banks and fields surrounding the Nile (black from the soil) and the colour of the people. This also meant the “land of the neteru (divinities).” – Wörterbuch der AegyptischenSprache (Dictionary of the Egyptian Language).

The English word ‘Egypt’ is derived from the Greek word ‘Aigyptos’ (or ‘Aiguptos’) and the Romans changed it into ‘Aegyptus’ (Ae-gyp-t-os).

The Greek ‘Aigyptos’ was very close to the origins as Africans of ancient Egypt referred to themselves as ‘Gypti,’ or ‘Geb-ti,’ which means ‘Children (or coming out) of Geb’. ‘Geb’ was the Divine, the cosmic force or energy personified by the earth, which was the dark colour of the soil of their land. The Greek travellers, unaware of the meaning of the term ‘Geb-ti,’ used it to call the country ‘Ae-gyp-t-os.’

The Greek word ‘Aiguptos’ is also linked to the reference of the area occupied by Africa, which was called the ‘Land of ‘Ka’ of ‘Ptah’. ‘Ka’ is the spiritual image and Ptah was said to be the chief ancestor and considered to have created the universe through intelligence or the heart, ‘Sia,’ in ancient Egypt and creative utterance, ‘Logos’ (Reason) or “Hu/Huh” (the divine creative utterance) in ancient Egypt.

Ptah was considered to hold the symbols of life, stability and good fortune. He was regarded as the patron of craftsmen and was adopted by the Greeks as Hephaestus.

Egyptologist Abbe Emile Amelineau (1850-1916): “From various Egyptian legends, I have been able to conclude that the populations settled in the Nile Valley were Negroes, since the (feminine cosmic power) Isis was said to have been a reddish-black woman.”

Mainstream European historiography has either made an attempt to take ancient Egypt (Kemet or KMT) out of Africa by designating it as a part of the ancient ‘Near East’, ancient India or considered it intellectually to be in Africa (since geographically it is already in Africa) but seek to take the dark-skinned people out of it by de-Africanising it.

The word for the Divine or divine power in ancient Egypt is “NTR” (Neter, Nejter). “The word for God and ‘god’ is, from first to last, Neter, the original meaning of which is unknown.” – E.A. Wallis Budge, Osiris and the Egyptian Resurrection, Vol. I, page 350.

Neteru is the plural for the ancient Egyptian divinity or sum of divine energies. The hieroglyph for ‘Ntr’ looks like a flag. ‘Ntr’ is also the force of nature (from Latin, ‘natura,’ which means “birth, essence”).

The ancient Egyptian sum of divine energies (“neteru”) humanised aspects of an impersonal cosmic energy or life force whose behaviour created and sustains life and the universe. Attributes and functions of such an impersonal cosmic energy or life force were also presented as animals.

Contrary to a falsified explanation, ancient Egyptians did not have numerous divinities but they humanised the various attributes of the cosmic energy or life force, the One (the duality of “Neter-Netert”) in the All (“Neteru”).

According to the 17th chapter of the “Book of the Dead,” the First Order and Cause of Nature consisted of eight cosmic energies (Neter-Netri) (NTR) or divinities.

These are “Nun” (Space, the inert, dark, chaotic primordial deep, vast and limitless waters representing an infinite sea of possibilities or potentiality) and “Atum/Amun/Amen” (Infinity, the self-creating genetic possibility); “Shu” (Space filled with Air) and “Tefnut” (Order/Moist); “Nut” (Sky) and “Geb” (Earth); and “Osiris/Asar” (Mind/Will/Masculine or Solar Principle) and “Isis” (Heart/Wisdom/Feminine or Lunar Principle, protector and mother). The eight divinities were pairs of males and females.

Isis (Hathor-Meri or Aset) was Heru/Horus’ mother and a widow of Asar.

Isis practiced magic to raise Asar from the dead so she could bear a son that would avenge his death.

Isis then became pregnant from the potency waters of her deceased husband. “(Isis) made to rise up the helpless member (male organ) of him whose heart was at rest, she drew from him his essence (potency waters), and she made there from an heir (Heru).”

Next, we examine that of ancient Greece.
