"I am looking for hard concrete data inreguards to reserch and information."
I have already recommended Gerald Massey's Book of Beginnings Vols. I & II, The Natural Genesis, Vols. I & II, and Ancient Egypt Vols. I & II. Massey is still relevant because what he discovered and concluded as a result of his extensive research, science is proving today. What Martin Bernal said in Black Athena, Massey had already said a half-century before him. Massey uncovers the religious, linguistic, cosmological and ultimately racial links between Africa and everyone on the globe. "The antiquity of Egypt may be said to have ended long before classical antiquity of the moderns begins, and except in the memorials of myth and language it was pre-monumental. We know that when Egypt first comes in sight it is old and grey." Gerald Massey
"They were old enough more than 6000 years ago for leprosy to be the subject of profound concern. A manuscript of the time of Rameses II says: "This is the beginning of a collection of recipes for curing leprosy. It was discovered in a very ancient papyrus enclosed in a writing case under the feet of the god Anubis, in the town of Sakhur, at the time of the reign of his majesty the defunct King Sapti (Seti) who was the fifth Pharaoh of the first dynasty, in the list of Abydus (Abydos)." There is a stone in the museum at Boulak consecrated to the memory of a noteworthy transaction. We learn from it that in the time of Kufu of the fourth dynasty, and founder of the great Pyramid, that the sphinx and its recently discovered temple not only existed already, but were then in a state of dilapidation, and it is recorded in the inscription that he restored them. He built the temple of the Great Mother and replaced the divinities in her seat." Egypt, says Wilkinson, was certainly more Asiatic than African. But when? We have to deal with the origin, not with the later appearances on the monuments after ages of miscegenation. It is true that a long gradation divides Negroes from Egyptians but the whole length of that gradation lies behind them in the colored races of the dark land and no other...the red men and the yellow are there as Egyptian, with the background of black out of which the modifications emerge. The problem of origin cannot be worked back again from white, yellow, or red to black, as it can forwards from black."(ask Michael Jackson) "The most reasonable view on the evolutionary theory-and those who do not accept that have not yet begun to think, for lack of a starting point-is that the black race is the most ancient, and that Africa is the primodial home. It is not necessary to show that the first colonizers of India were Negroes, but it is certain that the black Buddha of India was imaged in the Negroid type. In the black Negro god, whether called Buddha or Sut-Nahsi, we have a datum. They carry in their colour the proof of their origin. The people who first fasioned and worshipped the divine image in the negroid mould of humanity must according to all knowledge of human nature, have been negroid themselves. For the blackness is not merely mystical, the features and the hair of Buddha belong to the black race, and Nahsi is the Negro name. The genetrix represented as Dea Multimammae, the Diana of Ephesus, is found as a black figure, nor is the hue mystical only, for the features are as Negroid as were those of the black Isis in Egypt. " Massey compares Egypt to a hive, that periodically swarmed; "And the swarms went forth and settled in many parts of the world, leaving the proofs in language, myths, and in one far off place, the hieroglyphics; in other lands religious rites, the superstitions, the symbolical customs and ceremonies are the hieroglyphics still extant amongst races by whom they are no longer read, but which can be read as Egyptian. The parent recognizes her offspring when the children have lost all memory of their origin and birthplace." "The greatest difficulty in creation is the beginning, not the finishing, and to the despised black race we have at length to turn for the birth of language, the beginnings of all human creation." Massey talks about a certain tablet called the Old Chronicle, containing thirty dynasties in 113 descents, during the long period of 36,525 years. "The first series of princes was that of the Auritae (Afritae, Kafritae (African), the second that of the Mestraens (Mitzraim (Hebrew), Misra-Sthan (Hindu)), the third the Egyptians." This means Lower Egypt of the Nile Delta is the most recent, and this is only now being uncovered through recent archeological discoveries. Nubia is older than Egypt. When Nubia was at its height there was no Egypt. It is what the scribes were trying to explain to Herodotus. Was it Diop who used the analogy of Britain and America? Who would believe Kingston, Jamaica is older than Manhattan, New York? So, if you are looking for objective scholarship, look no further than the late Gerald Massey, a man before his time. Egypt on old maps of the biblical lands extends as far as where the Red Sea meets the Gulf of Aden on our current world maps. When I say that I believe Oannes=Osiris, and that the Sumerians came from the south, I mean further than Oman. The Osirian benefactor spoken of in Diodorus was reputedly born in Arabia Felix near Egypt. It is now accepted that Yemen on present day maps is a fitting location for Arabia Felix, however if you look at a map of the world, Yemen is not all that near Egypt. If however, we look at an old map of bible lands Yemen is just across the water. If we accept as history the information in Eusebius's Old Chronicle, then we must deduce that when the Neanderthals were living in caves and practising cannibalism, Africans had already achieved what it would take Europe another 40,000 odd years to achieve. It would also explain the age of the cave drawings (70,000) in Southern Africa and evidence of mining and smelting in central Africa. It's the train of thought of an evolutionist. It is not Afro-centric thinking, it does not claim a superiority of any racial group. Why is it that the Negroid is not reflected in the religious Art of the Sumerians? If you understand African religions you would understand why the Jews and Arabs are so opposed to idolatry. The mixing of the races, language and the curruption of African wisdom did begin in Babel, as the ancients moved further north and encountered their fellow men now emerging from their darkness. It is why in so-called Jewish history, they had to leave Babylon, they were eye-witnesses to the desecration. Not that they understood the wisdom any better, but their lives were a far cry better than when the various northerners took over, and if we believe their surjourn in Egypt, we understand why they had to leave there too, because the Northerners kept moving south and east. Their only escape was to the West. The Northerners kept moving south until they encountered the Ethopians, who were the "wisest and oldest" of men. Is this the Ethiopia on our current maps, or is it Ethiopia of the Auritae/Afritae? If it is the Auritae it would explain why Europe took so long to discover and colonize sub-saharan Africa. Objective scholarship is out there, in works of Gerald Massey and in the works of ancient historians, even though they reported it with some healthy sceptism.
