The breathtaking image at the very top of this page is of the Hagia Sophia, located in Istanbul, Turkey, and what most Christians, Jews and Muslims do not realise is that this was their very first religious centre. It was to also be the architectural prototype for all Churches, Synagogues and Mosques. It was built in 537 A.C.E. by Africans under the auspices of the Roman Byzantine Emperor Justinian and his wife Theodora, and for over 900 years, up until 1445, it was the Seat of Christianity. You could say that it was the Vatican before the Vatican. Why is it that religion does not teach its followers about their very first religious institution? It is certainly significant, because before this there were no Churches, Synagogues or Mosques to speak of. Imagine the history it holds, it’s the mother of all religious establishments and this marvellous structure is still standing in all its glory and splendour today. As one historian remarked:
“It is a marvel that preceded the Vatican in the West by almost 1000 years...Its rich history holds the possibilities of teaching everyone something, particularly those persons who are not familiar with its significance or in some cases its existence. Although it still stands in all of its magnificence, its significance has been minimized, masked, camouflaged, at the very least ignored. Yet its influence is ubiquitous. It is everywhere. The time has come for people in the religious world in particular and others in general to recognise consciously a common history that binds us together.
Lies, greed, and distortions that have torn the people of the world apart and continue to rip at hearts and force nations into war also must be brought into the light. Too many human lives have perished and continue to perish in wars and so-called peacekeeping efforts without the participants or observers understanding why or the history of the religious underpinnings of the wars in which our men and women fight. It is estimated that 300,000 or more persons die every five years due to what is often an ages old religious ancestral conflict.”
The Hagia Sophia is just one of the many significant examples of history that has been deliberately omitted for political reasons. Another foremost and deliberately ignored discrepancy with the three major religions is that the stories or myths in the Bible, Torah and Koran can clearly be traced back to the ancient times and throughout the globe. Comparative hierologists have discovered records of about thirty Saviour-God religions. These cults are spread all over the world in very remote times, but they show evidence of a common origin. The various Saviour-Gods had the following similar traits:
1) They were born on or near Christmas.
2) Their mothers were virgins.
3) They were born in a cave or stable.
4) They worked for the salvation of humanity.
5) They were called Saviours, Mediators, Healers, etc.
6) They were overcome by evil powers.
7) A descent into Hell was made by them.
8) After being slain they arose from death and ascended to heaven at Easter.
9) They founded religious institutions.
10) They were commemorated by Eucharistic rites.
11) Many of these Saviour-Gods were believed to make a second coming to the world.
1) Bel is taken prisoner = Jesus is taken prisoner.
2) Bel is tried in the Hall of Justice. = Jesus is tried in the Hall of Justice.
3) Bel is smitten. = Jesus is scourged.
4) Bel is led away to the mount. = Jesus is led away to Golgotha.
5) With Bel are taken two malefactors; one of whom is released. = With Jesus two malefactors are led away; another, Barabbas, is released.
6) After Bel has gone to the Mount the city breaks out in tumult. = At the death of Jesus the veil of the Temple is rent; the dead come from the graves and enter the city.
7) Bel’s clothes are carried away. = Jesus’ robe is divided among the soldiers.
8) Bel goes down into the Mount and disappears from life. = Jesus, from the grave, goes down into the realm of the dead.
9) A weeping woman seeks him at the gate of burial. = Mary Magdalene comes weeping to the tomb to seek Jesus.
10) Bel is brought back to life. = Jesus rises from the grave alive.
The previous table on Bel, the Babylonian Christ, is based on a tablet discovered in the ruins of Babylon by Professor H. Zimmern.
However, the comparisons do not end there; further explicit parallels can be found with the Egyptian god Horus who dates back more than 3000 B.C.E.
The data listed here are from Albert Churchward's, The Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man, pp.422-423
1) Horus had two mothers: Isis the Virgin, who conceived him, and Nephthys, who nursed him. He was brought forth singly as one of five brothers. = Jesus had two mothers, Mary the Virgin, who conceived him and Mary, the wife of Cleophas, who brought him forth as one of her children. He was brought forth singly as one of five brethren.
2) Horus was the son of Seb, his father on earth. = Jesus was the son of Joseph, his father on earth.
3) Horus was with his mother, the Virgin, until twelve years old, when he was transformed into the beloved son of God as the only begotten of the Father in Heaven. = Jesus remained with his mother, the Virgin, up to the age of twelve years, when he left her “to be about his Father’s business.”
4) From twelve to thirty years of age there is no record in the life of Horus. = From twelve to thirty years of age there is no record in the life of Jesus.
5) Horus, at thirty years of age, became adult in his baptism by Anup. = Jesus, at thirty years of age, was made a man in his baptism by John the Baptist.
6) Horus in his baptism made his transformation into the beloved son and only begotten of the Father, the Holy Spirit, represented by a bird. = Jesus in his baptism is hailed from Heaven as the beloved son and the only begotten of Father, God, the Holy Spirit, that is represented by a dove.
On the inner walls of the holy of holies in the Temple of Luxor inscribed by King Amenhotep 111 (1538-1501 B.C.) the birth of Horus is pictured in four scenes very much like Christian representations of the Annunciation and the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary, and the Birth and Adoration of the Christ Child. These four consecutive scenes, as engraved on the walls of the Temple of Luxor, are reproduced in Gerald Massey's Ancient Egypt: The Light of the World, Vol.11 (London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1907), p. 757, and may be described as follows:
The god Thoth is shown announcing to the Virgin Isis the impending birth of her son, Horus.
THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION
The god Kneph (the Holy Ghost) and the goddess Hathor are shown mystically impregnating the virgin by holding crosses (symbols of life) to the head and nostrils of the mother-to-be.
THE BIRTH OF THE CHILD GOD HORUS
The mother sits on the midwife's stool, and the newborn infant is held by attendants.
The infant Horus is shown receiving homage from gods and men, including the Three Kings, or Magi, who are tendering him gifts. In this scene the cross symbol again appears. "In this picture," as one Egyptologist noted, "we have the Annunciation, the Conception, the Birth and the Adoration as described in the first and second chapters of Luke's Gospel, and as we have historical assurance that the chapters in Matthew's Gospel which contain the miraculous birth of Christ are after additions not the earliest manuscripts, it seems probable that these two poetical chapters in Luke may also be unhistorical, and borrowed from the Egyptian accounts of the miraculous birth of their kings." (Samuel Sharpe, Egyptian Mythology and Egyptian Christianity, London: J. R. Smith, 1879, p. 19.)

Before proceeding I would kindly ask the reader to read these parallels at least one more time, if necessary, to fully digest the information and comprehend its implications. What are we to honestly make of these comparisons but to treat the story of the bible (as a literal and historical document) with a great deal of suspicion? How do you explain such explicit parallels existing more than two thousand years before the birth of Jesus?
It's clear from these records those notions of Heaven and Hell, God, the Holy Spirit, the Virgin Mother and birth, Baptism, Salvation, Healers, The Resurrection, and many more, had existed for thousands of years before Jesus Christ. The ancient Africans, all over the world, also had a fully realised and comprehensive understanding of cosmogony and cosmology, as is evident by their marvellous architecture and art, superior scientific prowess and philosophical insight. It is well known that the ancients were proficient at plotting the planets, the sun, the moon and stars.
The likes of Egyptologist Dr Cheikh Anta Diop make it very clear that the method of astronomical observation of their architectural structures represent "the existence of a sound astronomical science."
Diop further states that "the number of monuments that are oriented in relation to the four cardinal points, with an error always below one degree to the true north, eliminates any notion of chance." Indeed, the name for the designated area of science called Chemistry derives from the name Kemet which is the original and ancient name for the North African country we now call Egypt. On this subject the African Church Father, St. Augustine (fourth century), remarked:
"That which is known as the Christian religion existed among the ancients, and
never did not exist; from the beginning of the human race until the time when
Christ came in the flesh, at which time the true religion, which already existed
began to be called Christianity."
Augustine’s remark was accompanied by the following appended commentary:
“This astonishing declaration was made in the early fourth century of our era. It can be asserted with little chance of refutation that if this affirmation of the pious Augustine had not sunk out of sight, but had been kept in open view through the period of Western history, the whole course of that history would have been vastly altered for the better.
It is only too likely the case that the obvious implications of the passage were of such a nature that its exploitation was designedly frowned upon by the ecclesiastical authorities in every age. It held the kernel of great truth the common knowledge of which would have been a stumbling block in the way of the perpetuation of priestly power over the general Christian mind. It would have provoked inquiry and disarmed the ecclesiastical prestige of much of its power.”
The commentary further stated:
“For what is it that the Christian saint actually says? It stands as hardly less than a point-blank repudiation of all the chief asseverations on which the structure of Christian tradition rests. Every child born to Christian parents in eighteen centuries has been indoctrinated with the unqualified belief that Christianity was completely new, and the first true, religion in world history; that it was vouchsafed to the world by God himself and brought to earth by the sole divine emissary ever commissioned to convey God's truth to mankind; that it flashed out amid the lingering murks of Pagan darkness as the first ray of true light to illumine the pathway of evolution for the safe treading of human feet. All previous religion was the superstitious product of primitive childishness of mind. Christianity was the first piercing of the long night of black heathenism by the benignant gift of God...
Augustine shatters this illusion and this jealously preserved phantom of blind credulity. From remotest antiquity, he asserts, there has always existed in the world the true religion. It illuminated the intellects of the most ancient Sages, Prophets, Priests and Kings. It built the foundation for every national religion, the tenets of which consisted of reformulation of its ubiquitous ageless principles of knowledge and wisdom. It went under a variety of designations: Hermeticism in ancient Egypt; Orphism in early Greece; Zoroastrianism in Persia; Brahmanism in India; Taoism in China; Shintoism in Japan and China. In no matter what garbled and perverted form, even tribal religionism fostered it. Mystery cultism dramatized and ritualized it in many lands. Social usages, all the round of annual festivals, chimney-corner tale and castle ballad, countryside legend and folklore carried it down the stream of time. Always it existed among men; never was it not present in the world. Hardly ever apprehended at its real value, its representations badly misconceived, its import warped and travestied at every turn in popular practice, it yet existed and came down to Augustine's day.”
We are all familiar with the story of the Flood as given in Holy Writ. The story goes that at first man and woman were created as perfect human beings, but were later expelled from Eden after falling from grace. From then on Mankind rapidly descended. The first family were guilty of the first murder when Cain slew Abel. According to Scripture Cain fled to the Land of Nod and took unto himself a wife. This story has been embarrassing, for true believers, for according to Scripture Adam and Eve and their two sons were meant to be the only people alive in the world at this time. As mankind revelled in wickedness the good Lord decided that he’d had enough and took appropriate measures, the story continues as follows:
"And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast, and the creeping things, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord...
. . . and God said unto Noah, the end of all flesh is come before me, for the earth is filled with violence through them, and behold, I will destroy them with the earth. Make thee an ark of gopher wood, rooms shalt thou make in the ark, a window shalt thou make in the ark; . . . And behold, I, even I, do bring a flood of waters upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the breath of life, from under heaven, and everything that is in the earth shall die. But with thee shall I establish my covenant; and thou shalt come into the ark, thou and thy sons, and thy wife, and thy sons' wives, with thee. And of every living thing of all flesh, two of every sort shall thou bring into the ark, to keep them alive with thee; they shall be male and female. Of fowls after their kind, and of cattle after their kind, of every creeping thing of the earth after his kind, two of every sort shall come in to thee, to keep them alive. And take thou unto thee of all food that is eaten and thou shall gather it to thee; and it shall be for food for thee and for them. Thus did Noah, according to all that God had commanded him."
The passage cited above is from the sixth chapter of Genesis. In Genesis 7:1-3, we read that after the ark had been completed, the Lord said to Noah: "Come thou and all thy house into the ark...of every clean beast thou shall take to thee by sevens, the male and his female; and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female. Of fowls also of the air by sevens, and the male and his female." Then we read: "Noah went in, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, into the ark."
And so began the Great Flood. The entire earth was inundated with rain for forty days and forty nights. It is said that the ark landed on the top of Mt. Ararat, but before the ark landed Noah had sent out birds to scout for land, a raven and a dove. The dove provided Noah with proof that the land was now above water by coming back with an olive leaf. After Noah and his crew had disembarked from the ark, we read: "And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord, . . . and offered burnt offerings on the altar. And the Lord smelled a sweet savour, and the Lord said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground anymore for man's sake." (Genesis 8)."
There are numerous ancient myths around the world concerning a great deluge. One scholar devotes over one hundred pages to them in his great study of the Old Testament folklore. John G. Jackson in his book Christianity before Christ provides a few of these parallels:
"The Chaldean account of the great flood as recorded by Berossus reads as follows:
After the death of Ardates (the ninth king of the Chaldeans) his son Xisuthrus reigned eighteen sari. In his time happened a great deluge, the history of which is thus described: The deity Kronos appeared to him in a vision and warned him that upon the fifteenth day of the month Daesius there would be a flood, by which mankind would be destroyed...
He therefore enjoined him ... to build a vessel, and take with him into it his friends and relations, and to convey on board everything necessary to sustain life, together with all the different animals, both birds and quadrupeds, and trust himself fearlessly to the deep. He then obeyed the divine admonition, and built a vessel five stadia in length, and two in breadth. Into this he put everything which he had prepared, and last of all conveyed into it, his wife, his children, and his friends. After the flood had been upon the earth, and was in time abated, Xisuthrus sent out birds from the vessel; which not finding any food, nor any place whereupon they might rest their feet, returned to him again. After an interval of some days, he sent them forth a second time; and they now returned, with their feet tinged with mud. He made a trial a third time with these birds; but they returned to him no more; from whence he judged that the surface of the earth had appeared above the waters. He therefore made an opening in the vessel, and upon looking out, found that it was stranded upon the side of some mountain; upon which he immediately quitted it, with his wife, his daughter and the pilot. Xisuthrus then paid his adoration to the earth, and having constructed an altar, offered sacrifices to the gods.
The account just cited (George Smith, The Chaldean History of Berossus, New York: Scribner Armstrong and Co., 1876, pp. 285-286) not only closely agrees with the Genesis story, but alsowith that excavated from earlier Assyrian archives by George Smith of the British Museum."When we consider," Smith wrote, "the difference between the two countries of Palestine and Babylonia, these variations do not appear greater than we should expect...
Thus we should expect beforehand that there would be differences in the narrative, and such we usually find, and we may also notice that the uniform account does not always coincide even with the account of the same events given by Berossus from Chaldean sources.
The Babylonian and Biblical deluge myths are so similar that they must have been derived from some more ancient common source. In both instances a god warns a virtuous man of the coming of a flood. The man is instructed to build an ark, and take into it people, animals, etc. In both cases after the flood, birds are sent out three times from the ark. The ark in both stories landed on a mountain. After leaving the ark, the survivors offered up a sacrifice to the gods. Xisuthrus was the tenth king and Noah was the tenth patriarch. The three sons of Xisuthrus were Titan, Zerovanos and Japetosthes. The three sons of Noah were Ham, Shem and Japheth. The Biblical story of the flood has an appendix which has had tragic historical consequences. It was related that in celebrating the end of the flood, Noah imbibed too much of an alcoholic beverage, bringing on a drunken state which caused the patriarch to take off all his clothes and to dance around in a state of nudity. One son, Ham, witnessing this orgy, thought it was funny, and laughed at it. This conduct, according to the Bible, called forth a divine curse. Ham was turned Black by the good Lord, and exiled to Africa, and he and his children were doomed to hew wood and draw water for their more fortunate brothers. This propaganda was used to justify the slave trade and is still regarded as gospel truth by Christian racists.
There are several Hindu versions of the myth of a great deluge, the oldest being that published in the Satapatha Brahmana, about the sixth century B.C.
The following condensed account is taken from an authoritative version:
Many ages after the creation of the world, Brahma resolved to destroy it with a deluge, on account of the wickedness of the people. There lived at the time a pious man named Satyavrata, and as the Lord of the Universe loved this pious man and wished to preserve him from the sea of destruction which was to appear on account of the depravity of the age, he appeared before him in the form of Vishnu (the Preserver) and said: "In seven days from the present time . . . the world will be plunged in an ocean of death but in the midst of the destroying waves, a large vessel sent by me for thy use shall stand before thee. Then shalt thou take all medicinal herbs, all the variety of foods, and accompanied by seven saints, encircled by pairs of all brute animals, thou shalt enter the spacious ark, and continue in it, secure from the flood, on an immense ocean, without light, except the light of thy holy companions. When the ship shall be agitated by an impetuous wind, thou shall fasten it with a large sea serpent on my horn; for I will be near thee (in the form of a fish) drawing the vessel with thee and thy attendants."
"Read as mythology, the various stories of a great deluge have considerable cultural value, but taken as history, they are asinine and absurd."
As previously mentioned, the ancients, all over the world, were extremely aware of the stars. The tracking of the stars allowed them to recognise and anticipate events which occurred over long periods of time, such as eclipses and full moons. They in turn catalogued celestial groups into what we know today as constellations.
The image above is the cross of the Zodiac, one of the oldest conceptual images in human history, it reflects the Sun as it figuratively passes through the 12 constellations over the course of the year. It also reflects the 12 months of the year, the four seasons, and solstices and equinoxes. The Zodiac relates to the fact that constellations were anthropomorphised or personified as figures or animals. In other words, the early civilisations did not just follow the Sun and Stars; they personified them, with elaborate myths, involving their movements and relationships. The Sun with its life giving and saving qualities was personified as a representative of the unseen Creator or God, i.e. God’s Sun, the Light of the World, or the Saviour of Humankind. Likewise the 12 constellations represent places of travel for God’s Sun and were identified by names, usually representing elements of nature that happens during that period of time. For example, the constellation Aquarius, the water bearer, who brings the Spring Rains.
The famous Last Supper scene with Jesus in the centre representing the
Sun, along with his 12 disciples who represent the 12 signs of the Zodiac. At the bottom is a classic Zodiac.
We are all familiar with the general story of Jesus Christ. According to Scripture, he was born of a Virgin Mary on December 25th in Bethlehem. His birth was announced by a Star in the East, which Three Kings or Magi followed to locate the birth of the New Saviour. Jesus was a child teacher at 12, and at the age of 30 he was baptised by John the Baptist, and thus began his ministry. Jesus had 12 disciples that he travelled about with performing miracles such as healing the sick, walking on water, and raising the dead. He was also known as the King of Kings, Son of God, the Light of the World, the Alpha and Omega, Lamb of God, and many, many others. After being betrayed by his disciple Judas and sold for 30 pieces of silver, he was crucified, placed in a tomb, and after three days was resurrected and ascended into heaven.
This entire story is nothing more than an astrological allegory. The brightest star in the night sky known as the Star in the East is Sirius. Sirius on December 24th aligns with the three brightest stars on Orion’s Belt. In ancient times the three stars were called the Three Kings. On December 25th the Three Kings and Sirius all point to the place of Sunrise. This is why the Three Kings “follow” the “Star in the East”, to locate the “Sun” rise or the birth of Jesus, the Son (Sun) of God. The sunrise represents the birth of “God’s Sun” at Winter Solstice.
The Three Kings or Stars pointing to the Star in the East or Sirius.
The Virgin Mary is the constellation Virgo also known as “Virgo the Virgin.” Virgo in Latin means Virgin. Virgo is also referred to as the “House of Bread”, and the representation of Virgo is a Virgin holding a sheaf of wheat. This House of Bread and its sheaf of wheat represent August and September, the time of harvest. Bethlehem literally translates to “House of Bread.” Bethlehem is thus a representation of the constellation Virgo, a place in the sky, not on earth.
There’s another interesting phenomenon that occurs on December 25th or the Winter Solstice. From the Summer Solstice to the Winter Solstice the days become shorter and colder. From the perspective of the northern hemisphere the sun appears to move south and get smaller and scarcer. The shortening of the days and the expiration of the crops approaching the Winter Solstice symbolises the process of death to the ancients. It was the death of the Sun, and by December 22nd the Sun’s demise was fully realised. For the Sun, having moved continually to the south for six months makes its lowest point in the sky. It is here that a curious thing occurs. The Sun stops moving southward, at least perceivably, for three days (Dec 22nd, Dec 23rd and Dec 24th) and during the three day pause the Sun resides in the vicinity (directly below) of the Southern Cross or Crux constellation (in the sky). On December 25th the Sun moves one degree, but this time northward (rising), and therefore foreshadowing warmer days, warmth and spring. Thus, it was said the “Sun” (Jesus the Son of God) died on a cross (Southern Cross), was dead for three days (Dec 22nd, Dec 23rd and Dec 24th), only to be resurrected or born again on December 25th.
This is why Jesus and numerous other Sun Gods share the crucifixion three day death and resurrection concept. It’s the Sun’s transition period before it shifts its direction back into the northern hemisphere, bringing spring and thus salvation. However, they did not celebrate the resurrection of the Sun (Son of God) until the spring equinox or “Easter”, this is because at the spring equinox the Sun (Son of God) officially overpowers the “Evil Darkness”, as daytime thereafter becomes longer in duration than the night, and the revitalising conditions of spring emerge.
In fact, the number 12 is replete throughout the bible, for example, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 sons of Jacob, 12 judges of Israel, 12 great Patriarchs, 12 O.T. Prophets, 12 kings of Israel, and 12 Princes of Israel.
Image above: Earths position in relation to the sun, moving anti-clockwise and pointing to star constellations. In this instance, between Aries (Ram), Pisces (Two Fish) and Aquarius (Man Bearing Water).
Coming back to the cross of the Zodiac, the figurative “Light of the Sun.” This was not just an artistic expression or tool to track the Sun’s movement, it was also a pagan spiritual symbol, the short hand of which looked like the final one of the three images above. This is not a symbol of Christianity, it is a pagan adaptation of the cross of the Zodiac. This is why Jesus in earlier cult art is always shown with his head on a cross.
For Jesus is the “Sun”, the Sun (Son) of God, the “Light” of the World, the “Risen” Saviour, who will come again, as it (the Sun) does every morning. The glory of God who defends against the works of darkness, as he is born again every morning, and can be seen coming in the clouds up in heaven with his “Crown” of thorns or Sun “Rays.”
Of all the many astrological and astronomical metaphors in the bible, one of the most important has to be references to the Ages. Throughout the Scriptures there are numerous references to the Age. In order to understand this we need to be familiar with the phenomenon called the Precession of the Equinoxes. The ancient Egyptians along with other ancient civilisations recognised that approximately every 2150 years the Sunrise on the morning of the Spring Equinox would occur on a different sign of the Zodiac. This has to do with a slow angular wobble that the earth maintains as it rotates on its axis. It is called a precession because the constellations go backwards rather than through the normal yearly cycle.
The amount of time it takes for the precession to go through all twelve signs is approximately 25,765 years. This is also called the Great Year, and the ancient societies were very aware of this. They also referred to each 2150 year period as an Age. From 4300 B.C.E. to 2150 B.C.E. it was the Age of Taurus the Bull; from 2150 B.C.E. to 1 C.E. it was Aries the Ram, and from 1 C.E. to 2150 C.E. it is the Age of Pisces, the Two Fish, and the Age that we’re still in today; and around 2150 C.E. to 4300 C.E. we will enter a new Age, the Age of Aquarius.
Precession of the Equinoxes takes approximately 26000 years to complete one cycle. 2150 year = Age. Image below: Sun and the Zodiac signs or Ages.
The amount of time it takes for the precession to go through all twelve signs is approximately 25,765 years. This is also called the Great Year, and the ancient societies were very aware of this. They also referred to each 2150 year period as an Age. From 4300 B.C.E. to 2150 B.C.E. it was the Age of Taurus the Bull; from 2150 B.C.E. to 1 C.E. it was Aries the Ram, and from 1 C.E. to 2150 C.E. it is the Age of Pisces, the Two Fish, and the Age that we’re still in today; and around 2150 C.E. to 4300 C.E. we will enter a new Age, the Age of Aquarius.
The Bible reflects, broadly speaking, a symbolic movement through three Ages, while foreshadowing a fourth. In the Old Testament when Moses comes down Mount Sinai with the Ten Commandments he is very upset to see his people worshipping a Golden Bull calf. In fact, he shattered the stone tablets and instructed his people to kill each other in order to purify themselves.
“Go in and out from gate to gate and slay every man his brother, and everyman his companion, and everyman his neighbour.” - Exodus 32
Most biblical scholars will attribute the anger to the fact that the Israelites were worshipping a false idol or something to that effect, the reality is the Golden Bull is Taurus the Bull, and Moses represents the new Age of Aries the Ram. This is why Jews even today still blow the Rams Horn. Moses represents the new Age of Aries.
Upon the new Age everyone must shred the old Age. Other deities mark these transitions as well, such as Mithra, a pre-christian God who kills the Bull in the same symbology. Jesus is the figure who ushers in the Age following Aries, the Age of Pisces or the Two Fish. Fish symbolism is very abundant in the New Testament; Jesus feeds five-thousand people with Bread and Two Fish.
“We only have five loaves of bread and two fish.” - Matt 14:17
When he begins his ministry walking along Galilee he befriends two fishermen who follow him. We have all seen the Jesus fish on the back of people’s cars; little do they know what it actually means. It is a pagan astrological symbolism for the “Sun’s” kingdom during the “Age” of “Pisces.” Also Jesus’ assumed birth date is essentially the start of this Age. At Luke 22:10 when Jesus is asked by his disciples where the last Passover would be, Jesus replied “Behold, when ye are entered into the city, there shall a man meet you bearing a pitcher of water follow him into the house where he entereth in.” This Scripture is by far one of the most revealing of all the astrological references. The man bearing a pitcher of water is Aquarius, the Water Bearer, who is always pictured as a man pouring out a pitcher of water.
Precession moving from the Age of Taurus the Bull to the Age of Aries the Ram. To go from one Age to another Age takes 2150 years. Image below: Aquarius pouring out a pitcher of water. He is shown here immediately following Pisces (Two Fish) in the precessional cycle.
He represents the Age after Pisces, and when the Sun (God Son-Jesus) leaves the Age of Pisces, Jesus or the Sun will go into the House of Aquarius, as Aquarius follows Pisces in the “Precession of the Equinoxes.” All Jesus (Sun) is saying is that after the Age of Pisces will come the Age of Aquarius.
Now we’ve all heard about the “End Times” or the “End of the World.” Leaving the cartoonish depiction in the “Book of Revelations” aside, the main source of this idea comes from Matthew 28: 20 when Jesus says: “I will be with you even to the end of the world.” However, in the King James Version, “world” is a mistranslation, among many mistranslations; the actual word being used is “Aeon” which means “Age”, “I will be with you even to the end of the “Age.” Which is true as Jesus’ solar Piscean personification will end when the Sun enters the Age of Aquarius. The entire concept of the “End Times”, being the end of the world, is a misinterpreted astrological allegory.
Finally, the England-born political philosopher and writer Thomas Paine (1737-1809) remarked:
“The Christian religion is a parody on the worship of the Sun, in which they put a man called Christ in the place of the Sun, and pay him the adoration originally payed to the Sun.”

All religions are nothing more than myths, allegories and fairy tales deliberately enforced both covertly and overtly for a relatively small group’s political agenda. In general, the agenda is to keep the masses under control as you would a herd of cattle. But it needs to be made absolutely clear that this analysis of religion is not intended to offend or attack, but it’s quite clear that there exists in the world of religion critical discrepancies of great and potentially grave consequences and as such should be treated as you would a science project, for example. Science projects are always dealt with objectively, critically and logically, why should religion be any different? For example, how do you know that Jesus walked on water, was you there? Do you have historical documents by eyewitnesses outside of the Bible and the religious dogma that verifies this event? Would you normally believe in everything that is said from one book or person, or would you normally check out its validity using other sources as well? The Jesus walking on water allegory is actually the Sun’s reflection on water, which is another clue as to Jesus’ real identity, which is the personification of the Sun (Son or Sun of God). What are missing in the world of religion are comparative study, critical thinking and honesty.
Christianity didn’t just miraculously appear in the form of a Bible readymade for human consumption. It is, in fact, a deliberately twisted concoction, amalgamation and fabricated mosaic of what had existed for tens of thousands of years amongst the Africans of antiquity.
One example of this is explained by historian John G. Jackson when he stated:
“In Roman times the worship of [the Egyptian/African Goddess] Isis (Aishat) was widespread on all the main lines of communication in Europe, usually in ports and important market towns on rivers. With the advent of Christianity many of the chapels of Isis were taken over, and the representations of the goddess with the infant Horus in her arms became pictures of the Virgin Mary carrying the Holy Child. As Isis was dark-skinned, they became famous Black Virgins.
Notre Dame in Paris was built on the remains of a Temple of Isis; the original name of the city was Para Isidos, the Grove of Isis. There are Black Virgins near Marseilles, near Barcelona, at Czestochowa in Poland, and in numerous other cities in Europe.”
African "Virgin Mother & Child," the Ancient Egyptian Goddess Aishat (Isis) with her child the Sun God Heru (top). The plagiarisation of the African "Virgin Mother & Child," the European Mary and Jesus (bottom).
It was the Greeks in 323 B.C.E and later the Romans that were responsible for closing the ancient Egyptian temples and religious institutions that had existed for tens of thousands of years before there was a Greece, Rome or an alleged Jesus. This was done with the sole purpose of disconnecting the African from their spiritual way of life, which allowed the Greco-Romans to control them politically. After ferociously and systematically closing these temples, where they had previously learnt all of their notions of spirituality by the African priests and priestesses, they then proceeded to present their own version of it, realising the political power that religion holds. This is why religion has so many comparisons with ancient knowledge.
The ancients did not have a religion they had a spiritual way of life that directly connected them with the Creator by way of their Ancestors and the Gods, and naturally involved dedicated study of all of the arts and sciences. Ancient African spirituality, the world over, taught that everyone has the “Christ” potential within themselves, and not some external Saviour figure. The goal was to become god-like on earth by connecting or reconnecting ones natural divinity with the Creator and the Gods, and thereby obtain the ultimate goal of immortality. This was done by demonstrating the highest moral conduct, and vigorous study of the natural world, acknowledgement of ancestral spirit, the universe and one’s existence.This is a far cry from the indoctrinated and dogmatic approach of religion which encourages faith and belief over reason, knowledge and study. On this topic one scholar remarked:
“I don't believe anything...I make my assessment based on reason. Belief is
something that you do when you suspend reason.” - Phil Valentine, Metaphysician
Reason, knowledge and a general cognitive thought process is what we all use regularly and day to day, for basic things like going to work or school, driving a car or riding a bike, knowing where you live and getting there safely. Conveniently, for political reasons, only religion expects you to simply believe and trust in your emotions, which is never a reliable method of functioning because your judgement and cognitive ability is greatly compromised. Conversely, reason and knowing ("know" the root word for "knowledge") - is the critical part of your day to day mental activity. What stops you from walking in front of a moving bus? It’s not belief but knowing; you don’t believe you will get hurt you know it. Belief is faith, reason is knowing through critical analysis, study and investigation. Belief, faith and emotion are childlike, you accept without question, on the other hand reason and knowing are consistent with a mature and adult thought process, it’s examination and scrutiny before a decision is made. You can see why the ecclesiastical authorities would prefer the masses to simply suspend reason and knowledge and adopt faith or belief - which requires no investigation and mere blind myopic acceptance. If faith is all that is needed then logically you don’t have to do anything; why get up in the morning to go to work, when all you need is faith and money will miraculously appear?
What the political authorities want are people emotionally wrapped up inside the religious dogma itself and never investigating it objectively. This way you will never even think of investigating the origin of the religion that you're in and thereby discover the marvellous structure the Hagia Sophia, or the many religious comparisons with ancient stories that existed thousands of years before there was a so-called Abraham, Moses, Muhammad or Jesus Christ, for example.
Religion is effective in closing minds and building unnecessary walls, and it's particularly effective because it plays on your heart strings and is extremely emotional, it's only emotional attachment that can explain how such blatant evidence can be ignored or brushed aside easily. This is perfectly reasonable and understandable, since true spiritual knowledge has been deliberately denied to us for so long, what else can be expected? However, brushing the evidence aside will not make the truth go away, it's like sweeping dirt under a rug, all you've done is move it elsewhere but the dirt is still there.
When you’re free of religion or religious-type influence (media, education, pseudo-science and politics) suddenly the doors are swung open and you’re liberated. You discover new things, people and events in the world and the universe. You’re no longer stuck in between the pages of a dictatorial and inflexible book, and the world and universe is open to discovery. There are no limits in terms of time and space, everything goes, whatever the date, and wherever the place. Your judgement and critical-thinking ability sharpens exponentially, you no longer simply accept, without question, the garbage that you’re deliberately spoon fed from day to day.
It's been so long since true spiritual knowledge has been available to the masses that the current conditions reminds me of a very old and set rusty screw, because it is so old and set it will take a long time, and lots of effort to get loose and prise free.

There were a number of key periods leading up to the development of the three major religions, especially the mother of them all Christianity. For tens of thousands of years Africans throughout the world enjoyed and engaged in fully developed spiritual practice long before the introduction of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.
Jesus Christ himself was created from the image of Ptolemy I, Lagi (also called “Soter” which means “Saviour”). Ptolemy I, Lagi took over the rule in Egypt after Alexander of Macedon (so called Alexander the Great) died in 323 B.C.E. In order to understand how religion came about we need to study its development from its very beginning, which was when the Greeks invaded Egypt in 332 B.C.E. and the subsequent early ecumenical council meetings.
Christianity is the root of both Islam and Judaism, therefore, to understand the development of Christianity is to understand the foundation of those others too. Unfortunately, there are way too many areas to cover here to give the enquiry full justice. However, one fact that needs to be made clear early is that “to this day, there is no historical data or biography in existence to substantiate the life and times of Jesus the Christ.”
When Alexander of Macedon invaded Egypt in 332 B.C.E. he removed the existing Pharaoh and took the king’s role himself. In his newly acquired position as king he demanded that the ancient Egyptian priesthood accept him as a god and grant him priestly status. This would naturally mean that he would be a part of the brotherhood and accepted into their sacred institutions, as a legitimate member of the priestly society. This, however, was completely unacceptable for the ancient Egyptian priesthood because they did not worship the human form as a god, “they paid homage to their ancestors and nature. They were also in tune with universal spiritual consciousness, a direct spiritual link with the Creator.”
Alexander’s demands were therefore rejected flat-out. In those days, societies were spiritually governed and not governed politically, as we find today. A pharaoh, king or queen had to be highly in tune with his or her spiritual nature and well versed in spiritual knowledge before they could govern the society. “However, the ancient Egyptians considered Alexander a spiritually out-of-tune, uncivilised European alien and therefore his efforts were rejected.”
Nevertheless, the rejection was not taken well by Alexander, who along with the Ptolemies, and later the Romans, was well aware that acceptance in the priesthood was crucial in order to fully control the Egyptian population. As previously mentioned, Alexander’s successor was his general Ptolemy I, Lagi, who was also referred to as “Soter”.
The important point to note here is that “Soter” means “Saviour”, a title given to Ptolemy because of his successful military exploits. The title “Soter”, however, plays a major part in the development of the man-made Christian religion and created image of Jesus the Christ.
Like Alexander, Ptolemy I, Soter (Saviour) was also desperate to be accepted into the ancient Egyptian priesthood. However, “he was also rejected for the same reason as Alexander. At this time in history (320 B.C.E.) Ptolemy I, Soter sought out and found a council of ancient Egyptian priests and priestesses in Memphis, Egypt who agreed to make his image into a God.”
This was a crucial period in the history of religion because it was at this time that the very first deliberate political manoeuvre was made to disconnect the ancient Egyptians from their spiritual way of life. Author of the book The Historical Origin of Christianity, Walter Williams explains this critical time:
“These Melchite Coptic Egyptians complied with Ptolemy I’s request and made a composite using two of their ancient Egyptian gods, “Ausara” (Osiris), and the sacred bull of Memphis, “Apis”, and during this process came up with the name “Oserapis”, later Serapis.”
Coptic, which became the official language of the early Christians, is essentially nothing more than the language of Egypt or Kemet (hieroglyphs or Medu Netcher) written in the so-called Greek letters. Simply put, the language reflects the time of Greek rule of Egypt. Williams continued:
“They then gave the name “Oserapis” to Ptolemy I, and gave his image the assimilated characteristics of their ancient Egyptian ancestor Ausara (Osiris), thereby making Ptolemy and his image a “god”. They later created a devotional ritual to Serapis; he was spoken of as: “The Saviour and leader of souls, leading souls to the light and receiving them again.” The ritual goes on to say: “He raises the dead, he will save us after death and we will be protected in his providence. (See Serapis: The Outline of History by H.G. Wells, Volume I).”
It is here that the parallels with Jesus the Christ are clearly evident. Jesus is also credited with being the Saviour of mankind, leader of souls and raiser of the dead, etc. It is also here that the first development of a god with a human nature (Dyophysite) enters the world spiritual/political stage. Desperate to get himself accepted in the ancient Egyptian priesthood Ptolemy I attempted, in vain, to put his man-made icon/image of himself into all the sacred temples throughout Egypt. His icon was to be put alongside the ancient Egyptian god Osiris. This cunning and manipulative scheme of Ptolemy’s failed miserably, as the entire Egyptian priesthood rejected this peculiar European icon Serapis.
Serapis. 320 B.C.E. Modelled on the image of Ptolemy I, Lagi also known as Soter (Saviour). His name derives from a composite using two of the ancient Egyptian gods,“Ausara” (Osiris), and the sacred bull of Memphis, “Apis”, and during this process came up with the name “Oserapis”, later Serapis.
All except Memphis, Egypt, however, where the name Serapis and his icon/image was created by the Melchite Coptic Egyptians.
The backlash by the Egyptian priesthood frustrated and infuriated Ptolemy I who “proceeded to close all other sacred ancient Egyptian temples throughout Egypt and made it against the law for any ancient Egyptian to build any temples or buildings for the purpose of spiritual fellowship. The closing down of these sacred temples during the reign of Ptolemy I, Soter [Saviour], completely eliminated the last of the pharonic sacred institutions of ancient Egypt.”
The enforced introduction of this peculiar and bogus European icon Serapis, spelt the beginning of the end for an ancient African spiritual way of life that had existed fully intact for literally tens of thousands of years. This period was so devastating and humiliating for the Egyptians or the Kemites that many families left their beloved Egyptian homes and migrated to different countries such as Mali, Niger, Nigeria and Mauritania, never to return again. Within the priestly society many members were forced to use their homes for spiritual purposes. The law was to stay in effect until the time of the “Roman ruler Justinian I, who, in 543 A.C.E. along with his wife, Theodora, financed and built the world’s first Coptic Christian Monophysite church in Syria today called the Jacobite church.”
Ptolemy I stripped the temples of all its sacred and divine inspired manuscripts and papyrus scrolls, and stored them in Memphis, Egypt, where his image had been made into the pagan god Serapis. From this point on Egypt had turned from a spiritually governed society to a purely political one. Rulers were no longer rulers based on merit, they were political opportunists. “Every Ptolemy ruler, and later Roman rulers of Egypt sat on the throne of Egypt and became the Vicar of Serapis, just as the Roman Catholic pope of today sits on the throne of Peter in the Vatican and passes himself off as the Vicar of the created image called Jesus Christ.”
Ptolemy III, Evergettes I, Ptolemy I’s grandson, was responsible for relocating the sacred papyrus scrolls to the Serapeum Temple and annex building in Alexandria, Egypt, built by him in 240 B.C.E. Today this building is called the Great Library of Egypt. It was not built by Alexander of Macedon (Alexander the Great), as academics erroneously claim. Ptolemy III, was also responsible for building the Dionysian Temple in Memphis, Egypt in honour of Serapis.
Another significant development occurred around 197-196 B.C.E., when the Melchite Copts began to worship Serapis as a God, whilst giving honour to Ptolemy V, Epiphanes (Eucharitos), the Vicar of Serapis. “The worship of Serapis and the honour given to Ptolemy V Epiphanes was created by a new generation of Melchite Coptic Egyptians who comprised the general council of priest and priestesses in the Dionysian Temple in Memphis, Egypt. This honour to Ptolemy V was created to celebrate the first commemoration of the coronation of Ptolemy V, the king of Egypt and to give thanks for the many favours given by him to the Melchite Priest Society. The commemoration ceremony also established in history the religious ritual called the Eucharist. This ritual was also made part of Ptolemy V Epiphanes’ title, which was Eucharistos.”
Williams continues to explain this significant development:
“This honour, the Eucharist, became the first order of service set aside in the religious temples that honoured Serapis, such as the Dionysian Temple in Memphis, Egypt, the Serapeum in Alexandria, Egypt and the Temple of Serapis in Canopus, as well as military installations throughout the land area ruled by the Ptolemies and later the Romans...
The Eucharist, bestowed upon Ptolemy V, Epiphanes, and Serapis, is still being used today by the Roman Catholic Church in its opening ritual service called the Mass/Communion Service...The Roman Catholic Church through its teachings of Christian theology has deceived the world population by teaching the believer to believe that the ritual called the Consecrated Eucharist, which was a ritual created by the Dyophysitic Coptic Egyptian Christians, is the “Lords Last Supper”, i.e., Serapis/Christ (Jesus) surrounded by twelve other European images at a banquet table supposedly eating the “Last Supper.” This Eucharist as commemorated to Ptolemy V, Epiphanes (Eucharistos) and the image of Serapis has nothing to do with today’s meaning of the consecrated Eucharist Last Supper.”
The ritual was originally applied during and after the commemoration to Ptolemy V, Epiphanes, and Serapis. The members of the Egyptian population that could be prised away from ancient African tradition, such as the bourgeois Melchite Egyptian priesthood and the Greek occupants honoured this alien idol Serapis and Ptolemy V, Epiphanes by celebrating the Eucharist in their homes during the usual hour of dinner or late afternoon supper. As far as they were concerned it was a time to be thankful to the Ptolemies.
“This honour to Ptolemy V, Epiphanes (Eucharistos), is being used to this very day in the Roman Catholic Church and other religious institutions and is called the “Epiphany” or “Little Christ” or “Little Christmas.” It is celebrated from December 26th through January 6th, which is called the “Twelfth Night.” This explains the historical origin of the “Epiphany.”
The last and final stage to the cunning development and formation of Christianity were the numerous ecumenical council meetings. These meetings helped establish, through a series of crafty manoeuvring and outright dim-witted and bloody regime, the erroneous notion of a human saviour and transformed and made the created spiritless creature Serapis into the Messias [K] Christos (Christ).
There were five council meetings that led to the erroneous saviour figure, Jesus the Christ, the contents of which are far too numerous to fully cover here. For more information on this I recommend reading The Historical Origin of Christianity by Walter Williams. However, the order of these meetings is as follows:
1. The Council of Niceae I - 325 C.E.
2. The Council of Constantinople I - 381 C.E.
3. The Council of Ephesus - 431 C.E.
4. The Council of Chalcedon - 451 C.E.
5. The Council of Constantinople II - 553 C.E.29
The sole purpose of these meetings was to apotheosize the false idol Serapis by making him into a Messiah and God. These meetings were also attended by Melchite Coptic Egyptians who helped this come about and also helped to combat the strong opposition from the External Coptic Egyptian Community that were Monophysites.
An important area to remember is the differences between the Dyophysites and the Monophysites. The Dyophysites believed that Serapis/Christ had a divine spirit and human nature combining both into one. The Coptic Egyptians accepting this union were later called Christians. On the other hand, the Monophysites believed that Serapis/Christ had only one nature, a divine Osiris-like spirit only, but did not believe Serapis/Christ had a human nature. “During this time in history, any member of the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community was called an “Arianist” or a Monophysite.”
All of the meetings are worthy of detailed examination, however, this particular appraisal will mainly focus on the first, the Council of Niceae I (325 C.E.). There were three historical events that caused this first council meeting to come about, and they are as follows:
1) The Donatist Schismatic Controversy;
2) The Donation to Constantine;
3) The strong statement by Arius
The Donatist Schismatic Controversy or Donatism began “with a quarrel over the reconciliation of the traitors, clerks and bishops who were responsible in handing over their sacred writings to the imperial Roman Emperor, Diocletian, during the Diocletian Persecution (303-305 C.E.).” Particular questions were raised against the actions of Bishop Mensurius of Carthage. He complied with the Roman persecutors by handing over sacred writings to them. This was wholly unacceptable to the Exterior Coptic Religious community “who claimed that he should have offered himself to be martyred in the spirit of their predecessors during the Decian Persecution (250-251 C.E.).”
It should be noted here that the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Community were a strong society of influential priest and priestesses and represented the most legitimate model of spiritual practice. They maintained, or tried to maintain, ancestral spiritual tradition as much as possible, under very difficult and awkward conditions. As Monophysites they did not believe in worshipping a human form but only a spiritual Osiris-like divinity, which is in keeping with tradition.
As Williams correctly pointed out: “The Monophysites refused to accept that [Serapis] possessed a human nature because they had a living memory of events that led to its creation.” Conversely, the Romans were desperate malignant Dyothphysites, that were trying to get the image of Serapis (Saviour) as a divine and human entity accepted by the Egyptians in order to have a European icon and full autocratic control over the population.
The Donatist Schism, however, effectively divided the Exterior Coptic Religious Community in North Central Africa and Northeast Africa during the fourth century, and they consequently became significantly weakened.
Constantine I, being a conniving opportunist, tried to take took full advantage of this weakness. “This weakness and division gave Constantine I the devious idea and opportunity to once again offer this created European icon/image of Serapis to our ancestors, the Exterior Coptic Egyptians who had rejected this image at this time for 633 years. Constantine thought that this idea was a way not only to get Serapis accepted into the Exterior Coptic Religious Community but himself as well, something that his predecessors before him could not do.”
Emperor Constantine I’s cunning plan instigated the second event that brought about the Council of Niceae I (325 C.E.), this was “The Donation of Constantine.” This was Constantine’s crafty design to expand the worship of Serapis throughout North Africa (Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco and Mauritania), all of Europe, and all of Northeast Africa (Turkey, Syria, Jordan, Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Yemen.) It should be explained here that “Turkey was one of the countries during the time of antiquity that was part of the African continent before the world was remapped and names changed.” However, Constantine’s plan could not be achieved without the support of the Exterior Coptic Religious Community. “His idea was to get the Exterior Coptic Religious Community to apotheosize the image of Serapis just like their brethren the Melchites and to accept this image as a God and to use this religious community as an incubator for this purpose.”
To fulfil his ambitions Constantine needed an ally within the Exterior Coptic Religious Community, and found one in Sylvester I, who was a member of the religious community in Constantinople, Turkey. “Turkey, at this time, had a large indigenous population of Coptic African Egyptians, as well as other parts of Northeast Africa.”
Constantine’s proposal was accepted by Sylvester I, and it contained the following stipulations:
1.“Constantine wanted to be, and was, baptized into the Melchite Coptic Religious Community in order to become a part of this community. Note: This is what Alexander and the Ptolemies unsuccessfully tried to do for themselves.
2.After Constantine was baptized, he gave to Sylvester I his imperial power and authority over the people of this community (the Melchite and Exterior Coptic Religious Communities).
3.By giving Sylvester I his imperial power, dignity, and emblems, all on a temporal basis, this made the words and decisions of Sylvester infallible and inerrant. Having this imperial power, Sylvester was no longer a member of the Exterior Coptic Religious Community. The reason being is that the Exterior Coptic Religious Community rejected Constantine, Serapis and Sylvester I.
4.With this union, Sylvester became the new leader and head papa of the new Melchite Coptic Religious Community and Constantine became just a member. This donation also made Sylvester the world’s first person of African origin other than a European to become the Vicar of the Serapis/Christ image. With this new title as the head of the Melchite Religious Community, his sole purpose was to get Serapis accepted by the Exterior Coptic Religious Community.
5.This union between Constantine and Sylvester brought about the Apostle’s Creed, i.e., a reform Creed. Note: This reform Creed is the original and true Apostles’ Creed and should not be confused with the Apostles Creed used today in Christian theology. The creed was originally established to reform the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community and remove them from their established way of thinking and practice of paying homage to their ancient Egyptian ancestors, [and the ] Divine Triad of Osiris (the father), Horus (the sun/son) and Isis (the holy Hathor Cow-Mother). A spiritual practice that was established by the ancient Egyptian ancestors during the time of Antiquity. Instead, Sylvester wanted the Apostles Creed put in its place to worship the European spiritless image of Serapis.”
On this topic Williams remarked:
“This donation and union between Constantine and Sylvester I also made Sylvester what would be considered today in Christian theology the pseudo Apostle Peter. Constantine, as emperor and Vicar of Serapis gave his authority to Sylvester. Note: Today, all popes of the Roman Catholic Church claim to get their papal authority from Peter and they claim Peter got his authority from Christ. As one can see, Constantine was the Vicar of Serapis and the image of Serapis later became the Messias ([K] Christos-Christ) at the Council of Ephesus (431 A.B.C.E.).”
It should be repeated here that the image of Serapis was created by a council of ancient Egyptian priests and priestesses in Memphis, Egypt (320 B.C.E.). This was done, as previously mentioned, by taking two ancient Egyptian gods, Ausar (Osiris) and Apis (Ra) and putting them together as a composite to create the name Oserapis (later called Serapis).
This created composite and Ptolemy I, Lagi was then given the assimilated characteristics of Osiris, thus making the image of Ptolemy I a pseudo god. Williams continued:
“All Greek and Roman rulers represented this false, spiritless image of Serapis as they ruled Egypt and parts of North and Northeast Africa beginning with Ptolemy I, Soter [Saviour], and continuing with the Roman rulers. Just as the pharaohs of ancient Egypt governed Egypt by representing themselves as Ausara (Oiris), thus keeping the Maathian Creed in balance with the priesthood in Egypt, similarly, the Greek and Roman rulers, represented themselves as the Vicars of Serapis.”
This was a deliberate attempt to move away from the traditional African imagery to a peculiar foreign European one that the Greek and Roman rulers of Egypt felt more comfortable with. “Sylvester began to set-up his own council of bishops and clergymen who went along with the bribe or donation. Together they started the foundation for the pagan religion called Christianity.
This can be attested to by studying the council meetings of Niceae I, 325 A.B.C.E., Constantinople I, 381 A.B.C.E., Ephesus, 431 A.B.C.E. and Chalcedon 451 A.B.C.E. From this study, one will be able to see how the created image of Serapis was made to be Christ and how the creation of the pagan religion called Christianity came into being.”
This transformation process was no quick and easy affair; it took 751 years from the invention of Serapis in 320 B.C.E. to the Council of Ephesus in 431 C.E. The key to understanding this timeline is the “Donation of Constantine”, which was a purely temporary political measure in order for Constantine and future Roman emperors to be accepted into the priesthood. The Roman emperors would have taken back the donation at the earliest opportunity, and assumed full ecclesiastical and political power if they could. As it happened it took 751 years for the opportunity to arise. “If the purpose of the Donation of Constantine had been accomplished during the life and reign of Constantine, he would have taken back the imperial and temporal power he bestowed upon Sylvester I and placed himself as Caesar-O Papa over the Melchite and Exterior Religious Community.” Therefore, according to Williams: “...the Council of Ephesus has to be used as the starting point for the pseudo-Christ, and the Council of Chalcedon must be used as the beginning of the pagan religion called Christianity.
If you are told about a Jesus Christ, Christians or Christianity before the Council of Ephesus (431 A.B.C.E.) or the Council of Chalcedon (451 A.B.C.E.) or even a Christian church before the building of the world’s first Christian church the Hagia Sophia (532 A.C.E.) you are being misled, on purpose or out of ignorance.”
Constantine’s and other Roman emperor’s malignant ambitions we’re largely stifled due to the strong resistance by the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community. They were African traditionalists that recognised the true nature and history of spiritual worship, and as such did not accept the peculiar European icon Serapis introduced by the Greek foreigners, and later strongly advocated by the Romans. To reiterate, neither the Greeks nor the Romans had any notion of spirituality before they came into contact with the African Priests and Priestesses of ancient Egypt or Kemet. The Greeks and Romans, therefore, were simply usurpers of ancient African tradition and wisdom. How is it then that the students came to teach the teachers about spirituality?
It was not until the reign of the emperor Justinian I, that the shackles of legitimate spirituality and true ancient knowledge and wisdom were removed so that the fallacy of the Serapis/Christ image could finally blossom.
This was largely due to the crafty implementation of the “Donation of Constantine,” which allowed politics to stealthily slip into the world of theological leadership. Remember that ancient societies were spiritually governed and not politically governed as they are today. Regarding this donation Williams remarked:
“Writers of history have hidden the real meaning and true significance of the “Donation of Constantine.” They do this by using the names of Lorenzo Valla, Nicholas of Cusa and Caesar Baronius for disqualifying purposes. In its place, the European religious scholar community has created the “Edict of Milan.” This was done to make the world population think that there were Christians during the time of Constantine.”
The most popular story or fairytale in this Edict is how Constantine supposedly converted to Christianity. “The story states that in “312”, on the eve of the battle of the Milvian Bridge near Rome, Constantine had the vision to which he attributed his conversion to Christianity. The story goes on to say that Constantine beheld a fiery cross in the heavens beneath which was written in Greek, “By this sign thou shalt conquer.” However, Constantine also is said to have had a dream telling him to place the Greek monogram representing Christ (a combination of the letters X and P) upon the shields of his soldiers.
The so-called legend continues to state that on the following day Constantine was victorious, killing both Maxentius and his son, and as a symbol of victory, he adopted the monogram for his labrum (imperial standard). The story further states that in 313 A.D., Constantine published the Edict of Milan granting freedom of religion and stopping the persecution of the Christians. The story goes on to say that Constantine’s reign marks a turning point in European history because he is, in a large measure, responsible for the fact that Christianity became the dominant religion in the western world.”
By now you should be aware why the “Edict of Milan” is a complete and utter farce, however, Williams provides just a few points that emphatically discredits this fallacy:
1) “During the time and reign of Constantine I (306-337 A.B.C.E.) there was no Jesus Christ, therefore, no Christians, or a religion called Christianity or a Christian church existed anywhere on the planet earth. The reason being is that the Serapis icon/image had not been made the Messias ([K] Christos) by the new Melchite Coptic Religious Community.
2) What actually happened is that Constantine made a promise to Sylvester I to stop the persecution of the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community, if this community would accept the created European image of Serapis as a god.
This religious community had been under constant religious oppression and persecution, beginning with Ptolemy I, Soter, which continued into the Roman era for their refusal to worship the European Serapis image. A deal was made between Constantine and the metropolitan Coptic Egyptian Bishop of Constantinople Sylvester I to return the homes taken from members of the Exterior Coptic Religious Community and stop persecuting this community if Sylvester I would accept what is known today in history as “The Donation of Constantine.” The return of their homes was particularly significant because the Exterior Coptic Religious Community held their religious fellowship in two places; their homes and the cemetery. They were not allowed to build any buildings for religious purposes. Their homes were used for spiritual fellowship and the cemetery was used to honour their special dead, some of whom allowed themselves to be martyred by the Greeks and the Romans. In their honour, they built special structures called “Martyria”, which were the world’s first form of sepulchre tombs.”
It should be reiterated that the term Exterior Coptic Egyptian is a description invented by Williams to refer to those that refused to accept the image of Serapis as god, which caused Ptolemy I Lagi (Soter or Saviour) to close all of their temples. With their temples closed, this caused them to become exterior. Later, during the Byzantine era, they were referred to as “Monophysites” or “Arianists.”
The name Arianists derives from the Exterior Coptic Egyptian or Monophysite Arius, the Alexandrian Presbyter, who strongly resisted the Serapis image. In 319 C.E. he stated that the image of Serapis was a “created creature.” Arius continued that Serapis was “a created creature, alien and dissimilar in all things from the Father (Osiris), a perfect creature above all other man-made creatures, but a creature nevertheless.” This was another critical point in history that led to the Council of Niceae I to be convened, and it started a strong Arianist and Monophysite movement against Serapis. Regarding Arius Williams remarked: “Today’s history books are calling Arius a heretic. They are saying his strong statement about this creature Serapis, known today as Jesus Christ, was Heresy. Nevertheless, Arius was right and today’s historians are wrong.”
The resistance to the Serapis, and later Jesus, image continued for centuries. “The Arabs continued the resistance after being taught and introduced to Monophysite Christianity by the Coptic Egyptian (Jacob Baradaeus a.k.a. James Baradai). Eventually, this led to the iconoclasm controversy which caused the Council of Niceae II to be convened in 787 C.E. and continued into the Photius-Filioque Schism 869-70 C.E. and the tenth century Bogomil Schism.” It is the Arianist or Monophysite resistance that later evolved into Islam. More on this will be discussed later.
By now the Melchite Coptic Egyptians were an organised council of hand-picked bishops and clergy, under the new head Bishop Sylvester I, who called the Council of Niceae I or the Nicene Council to be convened.52 The sole purpose of this meeting was to make the “created creature,” Serapis into the Messias ([K] Christos-Christ later Jesus the Christ). It was also convoked to deal with the stubborn and strong resistance from the Exterior Coptic Religious Community who rejected the image of Serapis as a god, and repudiated Sylvester I for accepting the bribe or “The Donation of Constantine.”The Nicene Council meeting resulted in Arius being anathematized, exiled and banished, and any person favouring his position were considered Arianist.
Another order of business at the meeting was to insert the Serapis image/icon into the ancient Egyptian Divine Triad. This triad consisted of Ausara (Osiris) the Father, Heru (Horus) the Sun or Son, and Auset (Isis, the Holy Cow Hathor) the Mother. “This divine triad was used by the Exterior Coptic Religious Community in all of their religious practices which was the last remnant of the ancestor gods used by their ancestors, the ancient Egyptians.”
Crucially, the Serapis image was now inserted into the divine triad, and made the Son of the Father Ausara (Osiris). Thus, Serapis replaced Heru (Horus) the Sun (Son) of Ausara (Osiris). Here one can see the obvious parallels with today’s Christian theology and Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the “Son” of Man, and now it’s clear to see how and where this term came about. The term “Son” or “Sun” was first applied to the created creature Serapis (Ptolemy I, Soter or Saviour), and later applied to the fictitious Jesus Christ image/icon. Originally the term “Sun is a Creator given spiritual name given to Ausara (Osiris) and his Sun Horus by the ancient Egyptians who were spiritually in tune with the universe, which means Sun of the Sun, Ra, the Creator.”
This fraudulent and malicious act of inserting Serapis into the ancient Egyptian Divine Triad brought about the Nicene Homoousios Creed known today as simply the Nicene Creed. This creed stated that “Serapis was from the substance of the Father Ausara (Osiris).”
“True God from True God, begotten, not made.” i.e. “God the Father, God the Sun, the same.” Controversially, the creed also used the term Homoousian Toi Patri, that is “of one substance with the Father.” “Thus, with the creation of the Nicene Homoousios Creed, Serapis became the Logos (The Word), the incarnated Logos.”
The second ecumenical council meeting was convoked fifty-six years later in 381 C.E. called the Council of Constantinople. This was held in Constantinople, Turkey (today called Istanbul), and was convened shortly after the baptism of the Roman Byzantine Emperor Theodosius I in 380 C.E. Baptism was a requirement for all Roman rulers in order to be a member of the Melchite Coptic Egyptian Religious Community (Dyophysites) as stipulated in the provisions in the “Donation of Constantine.”
This meeting was mainly to reaffirm the points of the first ecumenical meeting in the Council of Niceae in 325 B.C.E. However, “shortly after the close of this council meeting Theodosius was totally unsympathetic to Arianism.
He ordered the entire Exterior Coptic Religious Community to profess the faith of the Melchite Bishops of Constantinople and Alexandria, i.e. the Nicene Creed. He forbade the members of the Exterior Coptic Religious Community to meet for religious purposes and ordered the homes of their clergy seized.”
Nevertheless, Theodosius I’s callous actions were abruptly put to an end when the Melchite Coptic Bishop Ambrose of Alexandria reminded him that he had no power or authority over the Exterior Coptic Religious Community due to the stipulation in the Donation of Constantine.
In 391 C.E. another very important and interesting event occurred during Theodosius I’s reign. This event helped pave the way for Christianity as we know it today. The Melchite Coptic Egyptian theologian Theophilus was given permission by Theodosius I to destroy the Serapeum Temple in Alexandria, Egypt, the Canopus Temple in the city of Canopus and the Temple of Dionysius in Memphis, Egypt. These were among the main temples honouring Serapis, and they were destroyed to make way for the Byzantine Roman government to maintain the Nicene Homoousios (True God from True God, begotten, not made) , but with a new name for Serapis. On this momentous event Williams remarked:
“If you ask Christians throughout the world today if they have ever heard of Serapis, they will look at you with puzzlement and say “no.” This is because Theophilus, the Melchite Coptic Egyptian and the Melchite Religious Community wanted to destroy the name “Serapis,” but keep the image of Serapis, who was later at the Council of Ephesus (431 A.B.C.E.) renamed the Messias/(K)Christos/Christ.”
The most tragic part of this event is that Theophilus also destroyed the Annex building in Alexandria, Egypt, famously known today as the Great Library of Alexandria, and literally burnt thousands of divinely inspired ancient scrolls and manuscripts.
Of all the ecumenical council meetings, arguably the most important was the Council of Ephesus in 431 C.E. It was at this event that critical elements that were to become a major part of Christianity were created. It was the third ecumenical council meeting, and it was held at Ephesus in Northeast Africa (Turkey).
The meeting was convoked because “of the difficulties provoked by the preaching of Nestorius, the Quasi-Melchite, Quasi-Monophysite, and his followers against the title of Theotokos (The Mother of God) which was applied to the created creature the Virgin Mary and by the Monophysitic teachings of Eutyches.”
Nestorius’s argument was that the “Serapis image had one divine Osiris assimilated spirit, therefore, the Son of Man but no human nature and thus could not be called a god. This preaching along Monophysite teachings prompted the Council of Ephesus to come into being.” The meeting was convoked by the emperor Theodosius II at the request of the Melchite Bishop Cyril of Alexandria, who was commissioned by the Coptic Papa Celestine I.
“The first objective of the Melchite Copts were to reaffirm the Nicene Homoousios Creed, condemn Nestorius and Eutyches and their followers, and to devise and establish as official doctrine a human nature for the Serapis icon.”
Following the guidelines set forth by Celestine, “Cyril maintained that being (Physis - of the Word) had not undergone any change in becoming flesh. The word (Logos) is united according to the substance (hypostasis) to flesh animated by a rational soul. He is called the “Son of Man” where the two natures are joined in a true union and the two constitute one person and the one Son. The difference in natures is not suppressed by the union, but the inexplicable meeting of divinity and humanity produces one soul Serapis/Christ. The word was born of the Virgin and took to himself the nature of his own proper flesh.”
Although the decree was designed to give Serapis a human nature ultimately the objective was actually achieved by the creation of the Virgin Mary. This creation of the Virgin Mary replaced the ancient Egyptian Goddess Auset (Isis) from the ancient Egyptian Divine Triad and it also took on all of her attributes as well, thereby making the created creature the Virgin Mary a Goddess.
It was necessary for the peculiar fictitious created creature Serapis/Jesus the Christ to be born through the body of a woman in order for it to have a human nature and body.
Thus, it was at the council meeting that the Melchite Coptic legates and essentially the Roman government made a hypostatic union of the created creature the Virgin Mary with that of Serapis. Consequently, the created creature the Virgin Mary became Theotokos “The Mother of God” and the Logos (Serapis/Jesus the Christ) had become flesh. “With this man-made dyophysitic (divine and human combined into one) nature of the created Logos (Serapis) and the created creature, the Virgin Mary as Theotokos (The Mother of God) there began a new theology.”
Williams tells us about the significant outcome of this meeting:
“The Melchite Copts who spoke a Coptic Greek language made the Serapis image the “Anointed Messias” and the word Messias in Coptic Greek means “(K) Christos” and in English “Christ.” This caused the Melchite community to become the world’s first Dyophysitic Christians who in today’s history books are being called Coptic Christians. Today this contrived, spiritless creature called Serapis is worshiped throughout the world and is called Jesus the Christ or Jesus, Son of Mary, The Saviour and Redeemer of Mankind.”
From this vantage point we can easily see how the image of Ptolemy I, Lagi called Soter (Saviour) became (O) Serapis after receiving the composite names of the ancient Egyptian gods Osiris and Apis in 320 B.C.E.
Furthermore, we can see how Serapis became a god after receiving the assimilated attributes of Osiris, and was transformed into the Christ at the Council of Ephesus in 431 C.E., 751 years later. We can also see how Ptolemy I, Lagi’s title Soter which means Saviour, placed an important part in the Jesus Christ the Saviour/Redeemer fable. Furthermore, as Williams quite rightly points out: “This wrangling should lead one to the question; if this Christ was a real life human being (person), then why was there an ongoing argument over the human nature of this Christian object?”
Gradually over the years the new theology (Christianity) became more and more refined, and this was greatly accelerated by the fourth council meeting, the Council of Chalcedon in 451 C.E. Again, this meeting was largely convoked to reaffirm previous meeting points and to put further pressure on the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community. Therefore, the details of this meeting shall not be repeated here, for details on this meeting and further information on the other ecumenical council meetings previously mentioned, it is recommended, once again, that you read The Historical Origin of Christianity by Walter Williams. However, at this point (451 C.E.) the “man-made pagan religion, today called Christianity officially began, and the man-made icon creatures, today called Jesus, the Son of Mary, called the Christ, and the Virgin Mary had been consummated without further argument, i.e., the man-made pagan religion called Christianity began along with Serapis/Christ being brought forth as the object of worship of this new religion.”
This was largely due to the deliberate and crafty omission of the emotive word “human” and the use of the word “consubstantial” (of one and the same substance, essence, or nature) put in its place.
“This council defined one Christ, Perfect God and Man, consubstantial with man, one soul being into two natures without division or separation and without confusion or change. However, the union does not suppress the difference in natures. Their individual properties remain untouched and they are joined together in one person, or hypostasis.” In other words, with regards to the new Holy Trinity (God/Osiris (the Father), the Virgin Mary/Isis (the Mother of God), and Serapis/Christ/Horus (the Sun or Son of God), are all identical in substance or essence though different in aspect.
After this crafty gobbledygook, the Roman government now had a newly developed political tool in Christianity. The Roman Byzantine ruler Justinian I and later the Roman Catholic Church, the Hagia Sophia used the newly established Christian theology and the Serapis/Christ image (Ptolemy I, Lagi) openly and to great effect.
The final council meeting that will be briefly covered here is the Council of Constantinople II. “The council...came into being 102 years after the Council of Chalcedon in 553 C.E. This is the council that emperor Justinian I convoked in the Great Hall of the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. Its supposed purpose was to render final condemnation, in accordance with Justinian’s earlier instructions on the Three Chapters or the Three Nestorian Monophysite Chapters written by the African Bishop Theodore of Mopsuestia, Theodoret of Cyr, and Ibas of Edessa.” The real purpose, however, was to fulfil his and his wife’s ambition to take back the Donation of Constantine and give themselves full ecclesiastical and political power. This was also “prompted by Justinian’s desire to be the ecclesiastical head of the world’s first Christian and Roman Byzantine Catholic (universal) church and Institution called the “Hagia Sophia” or the Church of the “Blessed Wisdom.” Today, the Blessed Wisdom is another name for Jesus Christ.”
The Hagia Sophia was used by the Melchite Dyophysitic Coptic Christian Religious Community for religious and teaching purposes.
Here they developed and refined many religious rituals, first achieved by creating oral Floriligia narrative homilies concerning Christ, and was aided by them when creating other rituals; for example, the ritual of offering bread and wine as the body and blood of Christ and calling it the “Consecrated Eucharist.” “The continued practice of celibacy for the priest society which identified their female members as virgins and also the use of the Nicene Homoousios Creed at all mass communions.
All of the aforementioned rituals that were first created by the Coptic African Melchite Christians are used today in the Roman Catholic Church.” Having established these rituals Justinian I began to usurp the power of the Melchite Copts and eventually took full ecclesiastical power. This power has remained to this day, and is currently used by the Roman Catholic Church in the Vatican.
Justinian was not shy in his new role, and shortly after the Council of Constantinople II, he began to practice Caesaropapism and took on the role of the pope. “He did not hesitate to repress Arianism (Monophysites)...He began a ruthless campaign to take back the Donation of Constantine by eliminating bishops, clergy and religious nonconformists from the Melchite and Exterior Coptic Religious Communities.”
As for the Hagia Sophia, it was the Turkish conquest that “marked the end of the church’s reign as the first Seat (See) of Christianity, the first university and learning institution for Europeans, and the beginning of the world’s prototype for Mosques. In spite of all the earthquakes and conflicts, the church of Hagia Sophia physically survived.” The Hagia Sophia remained the Seat of Dyophystic Orthodox Christianity until 1453, when the Ottoman Turk Muhammed II conquered Constantinople and seized the Church.
Consequently, the Seat (See) of Dyophystic Orthodox Christianity was transferred out of Africa (Turkey) to Rome (The Vatican). “In preparation for the imminent move, they had begun the building of Saint Peters Church over the catacombs or burial grounds in the year 1445.”
On the subject of the Vatican and the moving of the Seat of Christianity to Europe for the first time, Williams noted: “The Vatican became the second See or Seat for Christianity. For the first time in history, the Europeans living in Europe had total control of Christianity and the church without political interference; thus began the separation of church and state. In 1445, Europeans began to practice their brand of Western (European) Christianity, giving the populace of the world the false illusion that the first Seat (See) of Christianity was created and began in Europe.”
Going back to the fictitious Serapis image/icon; as a result of having created the creature the Virgin Mary, the name Serapis could no longer be used. This left the Greeks and Romans and other Europeans living under Byzantine rule with just an icon and no name. “However, the Greek and Romans continued to worship this icon (K) Christos (Christ) as their god by changing its name to Iezv, today pronounced “Zeus” for the Greeks and Iupiter (Jupiter) for the Romans.”
Regarding the name applied to this spiritless icon, Williams categorically stated:
“In Greek and Roman mythology Zeus and Jupiter are one and the same god. The derivative of the name Jesus is from the name Zeus, i.e., Iezv, or Iesu, as it is spelled using the Greek-Latin alphabet. Always remember, the Greek and Latin alphabets are derivations of the third form of writing of the ancient Egyptians (the first form of writing is called today Medu Netcher, i.e. Hieroglyphic, the second is called today Hieratic Demotic.) The Greeks, prior to the coming of Alexandria the Greek’s invasion of ancient Egypt in 332 B.C.E., had no alphabet. The Greeks were an illiterate people without an alphabet who were unable to read or write, thereby unable to record any data pertinent to their time and evolution as a people.”
According to Williams the name Iesus was first applied to the icon Christ during the first ecumenical Council of Lyons in the year 1245 C.E., this was the 13th ecumenical council. Certainly, the one thing we know for sure is that the letter “J” was not invented until 1630 A.C.E., therefore, there was no one by the name of Jesus at the alleged period of his lifetime.

Islam is merely a derivative of Christianity by way of Monophysite Christianity and a subsequent Monist ideology. Evidence reveals that like Jesus, Muhammed of Islam never existed. To this day, there is no historical data or biography in existence to substantiate the life and times of this prophet. What does exist is a deliberate distortion of the life of a real person by the name of Ibn Al’ Arabi, who was used, along with some attributes of Jesus Christ, to create a fictitious biography for the so-called Muhammed of Islamic Tradition. The Shorter Encyclopedia of Islam adds weight to the negligible position of the prophet, when it stated:
“In consequence of the unreliability of the sources at our disposal, the very first question a biographer has to ask, namely when was his hero born, cannot be answered with certainty.”
Concerning this perplexing and ambiguous statement, Williams remarked:
“The hero in the quote is the traditional object of Islam; the created creature named Muhammed. But the main reason for not having historical data of a real life biography for a traditional Prophet Muhammed is because there never has been a man of traditional Islam that ever walked the earth in human form by the name of Muhammed, called the Prophet.”
Islam was born out of an ongoing polemic between the Melchite Dyophysites and the more traditional Arianists/Monophysites. The argument continued for centuries until the 13th century when the Monophysite African community, as well as the Monophysitic Europeans (Arabs), became followers of Ibn Al’ Arabi alias Muhammed. Arabi’s biography, as previously mentioned, was used to create and fashion a new Monist religion called Muhammedanism which eventually became Islam. “The change was consummated when the religion was officially named Islam during and after the formulation and writing of the world’s first Koran, based on the first five books (by Moses) and Psalms of the Old Testament and the Four Gospels of the New Testament. This effort began in 1870 in Syria and finished 49 years later and accepted by the Muhammedan world in 1919 at Cairo, Egypt. It was at this point that they ceased calling the religion Muhammedanism.”
In many ways Islam is guilty by association; it’s well known that its literature is largely produced from Christian sources, which we have already established is a plagiarisation of ancient African spiritual knowledge.
Hajj - The pilgrimage to an imaginary Mecca or a physical journey. The fifth pillar of traditional Islam.
Therefore, since Christianity is nothing more than a politically motivated amalgamation, concoction and fabrication of genuine and authentic ancient African knowledge, and since it was used to produce the Koran and the Torah, naturally, both Islam and Judaism suffer the same indictment. This fictitious literature (The Koran) was created by Jewish scholars from the Jewish organisation, the Alliance Israelite Universal of Paris, France, along with Christian scholars. It was the literature called the Koran that established the new religion called Islam, before the literature the religion did not exist. This literature eventually met with the Arab scholar’s approval, however, they added their own input by creating more customs, including more manufactured traditional stories attached to the life and times of the invented Prophet. On this subject Williams remarked:
“One of the first things the Arab scholars did was to give a special praise to the name Muhammed whenever this name was spoken, thus invoking what is known as Haqiqa Al-Muhammediyya (Haqiqa means to sing the praises of Muhammed). A tradition was established. Even more tradition connected to the name Muhammed was created by Jewish scholars, which is known as Israiliyat or Israelite Tales. For example, according to tradition, Muhammed, the Prophet, was illiterate, and therefore, not able to read. Hence, according to tradition, the Angel Gabriel taught him the entire Koran and, subsequently Muhammed dictated the Koran to a scribe from memory.”
The recital of the Koran by the Angel Gabriel is known in the Koran as the “Recital Recitation.” Williams continued:
“Let us take a look and find out who this Angel Gabriel is supposed to be. If you take the time and investigate, you will discover that the Angel Gabriel is a little bird and further inquiry reveals that another Angel, Israfil taught Gabriel. Israfil is described as a six tongue hairy monster...This is what Islamic tradition is teaching its adherents to believe.”
This little bird, The Archangel Gabriel, also gets about quite a bit apparently. According to Holy Scriptures he has come into “contact with Adam, Abraham, and Isma’il, Moses, David, Samuel, Solomon, and Egyptians at the mythical Biblical Exodus. In the Gospels he came to Zacharias to announce the birth of St. John, but the most important of all for the Muslims is that he dictated the entire Quran to the illiterate Prophet Muhammed, thereby causing the Muhammedian religion to be changed to Islam.”
Apart from the fact that Muhammed was supposedly taught the entire Koran by a little bird, which is obviously absurd, it must be pointed out, that we’re talking about a Christian Angel teaching an Islamic prophet the Koran. This is especially poignant when one considers the history of contention between the two religions.
It was Jacob Baradaeus, a.k.a. James Baradai, the Coptic Quasi-Monophysite who furthered the development of Muhammedanism, later called Islam. He was sent by Theodora (wife of emperor Justinian I, 543 C.E.) to evangelize among and convert the angry Europeans (Arabs) to Monophysite Christianity. “Theodora most likely was thinking that a half Christian was better than none at all.” It was also in the same year that Justinian and Theodora began to build the world’s first Coptic Christian Church, which was a Monophysite Church. “Today this is the Jacobite Church in Syria, named after Jacob Baradaeus some years after it was built. It was used as the main headquarters for the missionary work done by Jacob Baradaeus among the Europeans, today referred to as Muslim Arabs.”
Monophysitism spread throughout the Byzantine Christian Empire and later the Ottoman Empire which encompassed Northeast Africa, North Africa along the Mediterranean, parts of Central Africa, or Egypt and the Balkan areas of Europe. These Monophysite teachings was later on used to attack the Roman Byzantine government. “In doing so, they threatened the destruction of the Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. This violent campaign lasted until the Ottoman Turks totally destroyed the Byzantine Empire in 1453.”
In today’s history books we are taught that Arabs invaded Egypt in 641 C.E. and from there introduced Islam.
The historical facts, however, tells a completely different story. It is untrue because “Egypt along with Ethiopia, Syria, and all other areas outside of Constantinople were Monophysitic during this time in history.” On this topic Williams remarked:
“Let it be noted that Christianity was practiced mainly by the Melchite community via the Church of Hagia Sophia in Constantinople. Moreover, Islam is a religion based upon a book called the Koran and was created many years later. Without the Koran there would not be any Islam as a religion.”
Over the following centuries, from the time of the building of the Jacobite Church in 543 C.E., there were continued polemics and religious/political unrest. These polemics or ecclesiastical arguments were over areas such as Monotheletism (one will) and Monothelitism (one energy) which was also called Monoenergism. Monotheletism (one will) was first proposed in the year 622 C.E. and adopted by Emperor Heracius I purely for political reasons, as a compromise between Monophysitism and Chalcedon orthodoxy (Christianity). It was designed to settle the argument over the supposed human nature of Christ by using the words “one will” as opposed to no human nature.
Monothelitism (one energy) or Monoenergism was first produced by the African Monophysite Bishop Sergius I, Patriarch of Constantinople (c.633). “Sergius introduced a formula that stated that in Christ there was only one energy proceeding from a unique will.” From these farcical polemics and play with meanings and terminology we can see the political dance and deviousness within the ecclesiastical arena that characterised the period from 543 to 1453. The full details of which cannot be covered here, it is recommended that you read The Historical Origin of Islam by Walter Williams for more details covering the period.
Another clue to the nonexistence of the Prophet Muhammed of traditional Islam is that there are no depictions of him, and it is actually against Islamic law to do so. This derives from Christianity’s Iconoclasm Controversy. Iconoclasm refers to the extreme opposition to the representation of a human figure and veneration of the Christ image/icon. Iconoclasm was first enforced by decree in 730 C.E. and was born out of the Monophysitic argument that the Christ image had no human nature, only an Osiris-like spiritual one. Naturally, any depiction of this figure promotes the idea of a human nature. Despite, academic and/or religious explanations otherwise, it is clearly evident that it was an extension of the Iconoclasm Controversy, as well as the fact, of course, that he never actually existed, which led to the Prophet Muhammed being “faceless.”
Ibn Al ‘Arabi a.k.a. the Prophet Muhammed of Islam was a mystic who reached his height of prominence in the 13th century. He was extremely popular and widely known among the African and European Monophysite community. “Arabi taught and propounded his Monistic views on god, spirituality, prophet hood, and Sufi ideology, which began to change the African and European Monophysite’s way of thinking.” It is the powerful influence of Arabi’s teachings that the physical Holy City today called Mecca came about.
According to Islamic tradition “Mecca is the Holy City of Islam and the birthplace of Muhammed. In the Quran it states: “The first sanctuary appointed for mankind was that at Bakkah (or Mecca), a blessed place, and guidance for the peoples (Sura 3:96).” In Sura 6:92 and 42:5, we find that Mecca is the “Mother of settlements.” Also in Islamic tradition, Adam placed the Black Stone in the original Kaaba at Mecca, while Abraham and Ishmael rebuilt the Kaaba many years later. It’s clear from these statements that according to Islamic tradition Mecca is considered by Muslims as the most important and sacred of cities in the world.
Therefore, it’s strange that The Shorter Encyclopedia of Islam stated: “Muhammed’s activity in Medina covered 10 years (622-632) is certain. But we have no certain data for the Meccan period.”
As Williams stated:
“The foundation of Islam depends upon a Muhammed being born in Mecca in 570 A.D. Therefore, after reading [The Shorter Encyclopedia of Islam’s quote on Mecca] this leaves the traditional teaching of Muhammed being born in Mecca in doubt...Without a biography of a supposed person as spoke of in traditional Islam ever walking the earth in human form, you cannot have the hero of Islamic tradition, Muhammed. Also, without having specific data for the Meccan period, you cannot have a Muhammed being born in Mecca (570) or buried in Medina after death in 632 C.E.”
Furthermore, according to Williams, in his study of the entire Byzantine history and era (330-1453) there is absolutely no mention of a Prophet Muhhamed, Islam or Muslims. What there is, however, are arguments between the Coptic African Monophysites and Coptic African Dyophysitic Christians over the human and/or divine nature of Christ, and later physical violence by the European Arab Monophysites against the Byzantine government and empire. One has to ask why there is no mention of either the supposed Great Prophet or Islam for over 900 years of Byzantine history. What’s more “neither Mecca nor Medina existed under those names as places in physical or geographical form, where Hajj or Pilgrimages were being held and conducted, before the rule and control of Arabia and the Hejaz by Abdul Aziz Al Saud in 1924.”
It’s already been pointed out that Islam is guilty by association with Christianity, to provide another example of this fact, according to Islamic belief “when Adam and Eve were cast forth from paradise; they fell in different parts of the earth. Adam fell on mountain on the Island of Serendip, or Sri Lanka, and Eve fell in Arabia, on the border of the Red Sea near the present port of Jidda/Jeddah. For two hundred years they wandered separately and lonely about the earth. Finally in consideration of their penitence and wretchedness, they were permitted to come together again on Mt. Arafat, near the present city of Mecca. Adam prayed to God that a shrine might be granted to him one similar to what he used for worship in paradise. Adam's prayers were answered and a shrine was built. This shrine supposedly passed away, and many generations later, Abraham and his son Ishmael rebuilt the ancient tabernacle.
Gabriel assisted them and brought a magic stone for the shrine (some believers speculate that this stone was a meteorite). The shrine was called the Ka'bah and the supposed Abrahamic Haggarian pilgrimage to it called the Hajj began.”
It’s well known that the Adam and Eve story comes from Genesis in the Old Testament. The Koran was created using the Old Testament, Psalms and the Four Gospels of the New Testament. In fact, it is well known in academic circles that the Koran contains two bodies of literature. One from Jewish writings called the Pentateuch and Psalms (Pirke Aboth), and the second comes from Christian writings known as the Four Gospels (Patristic Theology).
A large number of Jewish teachings, sayings, narratives, and ethical precepts have been included in the Koran. The Isnad, the Hadith, and the Sunna, comprise the writings in which Jewish writers created the character called the Prophet Muhammed that was done under the term “Isra’iliyat” or “Isra’lite tales.” They “also added in the mix Sefer Ha Yashar Literature that are called the “Books of the Upright Ones,” i.e., Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses. The books Sefer Ha Yashar (Torah) became the basic foundation for the Torah and Talmud, and the religion known today as Judaism.” The Old Testament or Pentateuch was created in 1168-1180 C.E. by Moses Maimon or Maimonides, inspired by the literary writings of RASHI. “It was printed first in 1475 by the Capitalist Press for the Christian world community in Bologna, Italy.”
Contrary to popular belief, due to deliberate propaganda, Judaism is not a B.C.E. religion “for it cannot predate Solomon Bar Isaac called Rashi (1040-1104), its creator and formulator whose writings inspired Maimonides. Neither can Judaism predate the first crusade of 1096.” As Williams emphatically stated:
“In simple language the world had no religion called Judaism before the French Baron Rashi, Moses Maimonides, Jacob Ben Meir, or the Knights Templars. They all played a hand in the creation and development of Judaism.”
“If you are one to believe in the traditional teaching that Judaism was the first western religion before Christianity and Monophysite Christianity, you have been misinformed historically. The historically correct order is Christianity first and the Monophysitic Christinaity second from which Monist Muhammedanism derived, and then Judaism/Islam third.”
The discrepancy around Mecca can be easily explained when you consider that Mecca geographically did not exist as a physical place before the early twentieth century. Prior to the twentieth century Mecca was, in fact, simply a mental state. “It was Ibn Al’ Arabi who first created the ritual of going on a Hajj or Pilgrimage to Mecca, an imaginary mental state.” Arabi would go around in a circle while chanting prayers and casting out stones to rid himself of personal sins in order to perform the ritual.
Ibn Al’ Arabi alias Muhammed had many followers and disciples who would perform this mental pilgrimage to Mecca. Arabi’s teachings became an integral and important part of Islamic tradition. This can be testified by the huge numbers of Muslims today that visit Mecca through the act of praying. “Throughout the vast Muhammedian/Islamic Arab world, millions upon millions of believers kneel to pray. Wherever the place of prayer, they face towards Mecca and are united to the Kaaba by an invisible imaginary line of direction called (K) Qibla.”
As further evidence, it has to be reiterated how could such an important place such as Mecca, the birth place of the Prophet Muhammed (570 C.E.) not be mentioned at all in the study of the entire history of the Byzantine empire (395-1453 C.E.) or Ottoman Turkish history (1300-1919)? Moreover, neither is Medina or a Prophet Muhammed, for that matter. Furthermore, “there is no mention of Mecca or the Kaaba in any authenticated ancient documents including the Vatican archives. Mecca is dated by Islamic tradition by using the phrase “according to the Quran.”
This brings us to the question if Mecca was originally only a mental state then when did it first become a physical Holy City for the Islamic world? Williams provides the answer:
“After the fall of the Ottoman Empire (1919) and the forming of the League of Nations gave the British and French in 1920-1921 land regions in Northeast Africa. Today the region is referred to as the Middle East, such as Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Iraq, Kuwait, Iran, Arabia, and Yemen through a mandate. The British and the French began to issue these land areas to their hand-picked puppets. For example, Abdullah, the son of Sherif Hussein as Emir in Jordan, Faisal another son of Sherif Hussein was made Emir of Iraq after it was bordered off from Arabia in 1921 by the British under their mandate. This was done because in 1916 Sherif Hussein Ibn Ali and his son Faisal with the help of the British and their agent, T.E. Lawrence, a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia destroyed Turkish control of Hejaz province in Arabia, Iran, where Mecca and Medina are located today.
After the fall of the Turkish Empire (1919) Arabia was up for grabs. The British backed Abdul Aziz Al-Saud who defeated Sherif Hussein Ibn Ali for control of Araby (Arabia) in 1924.”
In his book The Historical Origin of Islam Williams quotes two authorities on Arabian history, Richard Bulliet and Patricia Crone, that both have doubts as to the existence of Mecca prior to 1919. According to Bulliet, for example, he stated:
“These claims by Muslims are quite wrong, as Mecca simply was not on the major trading routes...Mecca is tucked away at the edge of the Peninsula. Only by the most tortured reading can it be described as a natural crossroads between a North-South route and an East-West one.”
Bulliet refers to the fact that geographically Mecca is situated in a very difficult place to reach. Furthermore, according to Crone the supposed region of Mecca was a barren place, and barren places do not make natural halts, least of all, she said, “when they are found at a short distance from famously green environments.” She continued: “Why should caravans have made a steep descent to the barren valley of Mecca when they could have stopped at Ta’If?” Crone makes a valid point “Ta’If had water and food supplies, whereby Mecca was rugged, barren and hilly, and without food or water supplies plus it was very difficult to access.”
Crone finally concludes that Greek trading documents refer to Ta’If, and to Yathrib (today called Medina), as well as Kaybar in the North, but no mention is made of Mecca. Needles to say, it’s very strange that a Holy City of such importance and in which an abundance of trade was being done never received a mention from the traders in these historical documents.
The first meeting in Islam’s history was in 1926, after Abdul Aziz Al-Saud gained control of Arabia in 1924. HM (His Majesty) King Abdul Aziz-Al-Saud was the founder of the kingdom of Arabia, today called Saudi Arabia.130 He also started the development and building of Mecca and Medina in 1924 for the Islamic world to have their Hajj/Pilgrimage in physical form for the first time ever.

Ibn Al Arabi was an African who was born in Spain on July 29, 1165, approximately four centuries after the African Moors of North Africa conquered the country. His father Ali was a carpenter that lived in Seville, Spain, until 1202, and he was childless for a long time. In Spain Ibn Al ‘Arabi was known as Ibn Suraqa. However, in the east, he was generally known as Ibn Arabi without the definitive “Al” to differentiate between him and the elder Abu Bakr of Seville who also was called Ibn Al ‘Arabi. Here Williams notes what appears to be coincidences, and remarked:
“The name Ali in the traditional teachings of Islam is stated to be a cousin and son-in-law of Muhammed of Islamic tradition.”
Furthermore, Williams adds:
“The name Abu Bakr in the traditional teaching of Islam is stated to be the first Caliph after the death of Muhammed. Today, however, this is debated between the Shia and Sunni Muslims...
Taught also in traditional Islam is the claim that the sermons and speeches that were made by Muhammed were written down by one of his followers, Abu Bakr...Another seeming coincidence is that in Christianity it is taught that Joseph and Jesus were carpenters. Legend has it that Ali, the father of Ibn Al ‘Arabi was a carpenter and was childless for a long time.”
“Legend goes on to say”, says Williams: “that he met the pious Muhiyuddin Abdul Qadir Jilani and requested him to pray to God to bestow on him a male child. Accordingly, the pious Jilani who was very near the end of his life prayed for a son and told Ali to name the child Muhiyuddin after him. The legend also said that the pious Jilani blessed the prospective child in a special way and prophesied that the child would be the master of all divine secrets. Months later Muhiyuddin Ibn Al 'Arabi was born. His father Ali being in affluent circumstances gave his son, as he grew up, the best education available in his early life. Then we have what appears to be a host of antitheses.”
Williams points out that in today’s traditional teaching of Islam, Muhammed grew up as a poor orphan in very miserable circumstances.“Arabi in his early tutoring developed intelligence and was quick to grasp subjects that were taught to him. Even as a student, he was head and shoulders above others. His avarice for knowledge knew no bounds that caused him forever seeking after the naked truth. As a young adult, he became famous and people came from far and near to meet him.
Arabi spent his spare time with elderly men who were considered by him to be wise in their thinking. He mastered many languages thereby, developing an immense vocabulary over the languages he spoke. At an early age in his life, he began to write fine and eloquent poetry and his prose writings became famous throughout Africa. His sharp vocabulary, sparkling intelligence and splendid memory helped him to master mystic thoughts learned from the elder mystics of his day. Ibn Al 'Arabi developed most of these aforementioned feats during his adolescent years. When grown to manhood, he began to display signs of prophetic greatness, and almost all those qualities that are essential for a Prophet. It also was said that he possessed a clear and unsoiled heart, a supreme imagination and a strong psychic insight into dreams, telepathy, psychometry, and clairvoyance. In stark contrast, traditional Islamic teachings tell us that the Prophet Muhammed was literate.”
Arabi was obtaining knowledge through unconventional means, such as dreams, in which he was a strong believer in them. Dreams, it was said, are very important elements of Prophet-hood. Arabi’s prophetic gifts grew to such a great extent that he began to tell others that he had received the emblem of discipleship from god (the term Allah was NEVER used in his day.) “Arabi’s fame grew far and wide, he was known throughout North and Northeast Africa, and other parts of the African continent, and was known as a brilliant scholar, a mystic and Monist of great repute and last, but not least, of all, as a great occultist and spiritualist.”
Another very interesting and apparent coincidence was highlighted by Williams, and deserves repeating here:
“One of the teachers of Shaikh Al ‘Arabi in his early adult life was an old lady by the name of Fatima Bint Al Waliyyah. She was ninety-five years of age, but still hale and hearty and was said to have had the sight of God in everything she taught him. The name Fatima in the teachings of Islam today is stated to be the daughter of the traditional Prophet Muhammed.”
“I must continue to emphasize the deliberately contrived and ascribed descriptions of a traditional Muhammed compared to the life of Arabi in order to get you to use your analytical mind to realise where these names such as Fatima, Abu Bakr and Ali that are used in today’s Islam emanated.”
Arabi’s popularity was so immense in his time that scholars, kings, and princes sought his council and blessings.
The name Saudi Arabi (archaic Araby) was, in fact, named after him many years after his death. “Wherever Arabi went, he performed his created ritual called the “Pilgrimage of the Hajj.” Arabi symbolically performed the Hajj in which water was poured in a circle after which Arabi began to go around and around in this circle throwing stones and chanting prayers that signified the casting out or getting rid of personal sin.
Today in Mecca, the Kaaba Shrine is used to perform this ritual. It is used in the Islamic ritual of the Hajj in conjunction with chanting prayers and casting or throwing stones in the circle of supposed Holy water or the spring of supposed Ishmael, called the “Zem Zem.”
It should be noted that the definition of the term Mecca is defined as any place that one yearns to go; anything that one greatly desires or tries to achieve. Arabi’s many Monophysitic followers throughout the Monophysite world accepted and repeated his rituals. There was no Islam at this time, only Christianity and Monophysite ideology that later evolved into Monist Muhammedanism beginning in 1239 and then Islam after the Koran was first formulated in Syria in 1870. The Koran was not complete, however, until 1919 in Cairo, Egypt, when the Monist Muhammedian world accepted it as their sacred literature. With the completed production of this literature the scattered disenfranchised Monophysite and Arab world were united under this one book, the Koran.
Arabi wrote a systematic treatise on religious matters during his stay in the Hejaz region, where he developed the pilgrimage of the Hajj ritual. These treatise were latter turned into his first major work, his book entitled, Al Futuhat Al Makkiyya, also known as his Meccan Revelations. The Koran today is full of Arabi influence, and is immersed in his Monotheistic views, his dreams, wanderings, illusions, musings, and visions, otherwise known as his “Hadith” (sayings of Muhammed).
As well as the inclusion of his chapters from the Futuhat Al Makkiyya which deals with questions regarding predestination, day of judgement, all principles of jurisprudence, law, mysticism, punishment and reward, heaven and hell and Sufi theology. All of these Arabi elements greatly helped to formulate the unique religion called Islam.
Throughout his writings there is no mention of the term Allah only god is used several times, and the likelihood is the term Allah was specifically invented for Islam. Although some scholars believe that the term Allah is a borrowed term and is an Arabized form of the Christian Syriac, Ala Ha, but this is unlikely. The name Allah is derived from “Al” meaning “The” and “Lah” meaning God, later the words were merged to form “Allah” = “The God.”
In Arabi’s alleged second book called Fusus Al Hikam (The Bezels of Wisdom) there is also an absence of the name Allah, again God is used instead.
Furthermore, the term Islam did not exist either; it was originally called Muhammedanism whose followers were Moslems, which means “true believer.” “Arabi’s devotion and practice of religious piety have been renamed in today’s traditional Islam as Sufism. Another less familiar name for Sufism is Tasawwuf, also known as Theosophy. It is safe to say that Ibn Arabi was the world’s first Sufi given that he laid the foundation for the Monist religion we know now as Muhammedanism/Islam, and Sufism today is associated with Islam.”
After Arabi’s death his followers developed their new Monist religion using his biography, teachings and religious practices as a guide. They then applied all these characteristics, customs, and elements to venerate “Shaikh Al’ Akbar Muhiyddin Ibn Al’ Ali a.k.a. Ibn Al ‘Arabi alias Muhammed whereby the meaning of his name “Muhammed” became to mean “one who is worthy of praise.” This caused a new orthodox system of rites or (Tarika) rituals, laws, and customs for his disciples and followers to use as their foundation for their new Monist religion that they called Muhammedanism.”
Muhammedanism itself is based on a Monist ideology, a doctrine that says: “There is only one ultimate substance or principle.” This was similar to, and a compromise of the Monophysitic ideology of an Osiris-like spirit only, and no human nature. In Islamic teachings, the Monist ideology is worded to say “That there is but ONE god and Allah is his name. This Monist ideology was used by Arabi and taught to his followers who began to spread his teachings.”
Here we can see the development from Monophysitic ideology to the Monist ideology and its final incarnations Muhammedanism and Islam. The ecclesiastical polemics or arguments around “Iconoclasm” and the staunch resistance to an image of Christ by the Exterior Coptic Egyptian Religious Community or the “Arianists” or “Monophysites who were aware of the farcical icon that was Serapis/Christ, explains why today Islam’s prophet Muhammed is NEVER depicted with a face. This harks back to the days of Iconoclasm ideology and should also tell you that the prophet Muhammed of traditional Islam is indeed a created creature, and never existed. “The description of a faceless icon of Muhammed is indicative of a non-human object.”
On this subject Williams remarked:
“The followers of Arabi began to worship him as the Muhammed, “one who is worthy of praise.” Al Sheikh Al ‘Akbar Muhiyuddin Ibn Al ‘Arabi was adapted and adopted as “Muhammed The Prophet, their god, whom they worshipped prior to switching to the god Rahman, “The Compassionate”, whose name was used preceding every Sura. In the early Orthodox version of the Koran, Rahman was in use instead of Allah.”
The new Monist religion rapidly spread throughout the world and its ubiquity was greatly enhanced by the Ottoman Turks, who in the late 13th and early 14th century began to enforce this new Monist religion throughout North Africa, i.e., Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Morocco, and Mauritania.
It also began to spread across the Mediterranean Sea into Spain, into the southern areas of Europe, the Balkans, the home of the Bogomils (today Serbs), Bulgaria, Yugoslavia, Albania, Greece, parts of China, Indonesia, and Asiatic Russia. The countries of Northeast Africa, i.e., Turkey, and other land regions that are known today as Iran, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Yemen were all part of the Ottoman Empire at one time. “The Ottoman Turks began to approach them conquered subjects or brethren at the beginning of the 14th century with a forceful outcry of “Muhammed or die.” With the onslaught of Muhammedanism in Africa, Spain, and Europe this Monist religion began to spread into other areas of the world, such as India (Pakistan), Afghanistan, and the Mongolian areas in Europe.”
The Monist ideology subscribes to the belief that: “There is only one ultimate substance or principle, whether Mind (Idealism), Matter (Materialism) or some third thing that is based on both.” This is obviously an extension of Monophysitic ideology, and therefore more or less the same principle.
As previously stated, and contrary to popular belief, Judaism is not the oldest of the three major religions. Nevertheless, Judaism can lay claim to being the first out of the three major religions to print religious literature, and this was the Hebrew Bible, printed in Bologna, Italy in 1475. “This is how Judaism merited the position of first when indeed its development was third or last to be created. Serapis/Christianity was the first. The second was Monophysitism based on a doctrine derived from Aranism, a doctrine concerning the human nature of Serapis Christ.”
Another reason why “tradition teaches that Judaism was the first and oldest religion is that the created Jesus the Christ was portrayed as a Jew in the Fourth Gospel, John. Christian tradition teaches that after the death of Jesus came Christianity which is purported to be the second religion. However, this traditional teaching is historically incorrect.” As previously mentioned: “Judaism cannot predate the BARON Soloman Bar Isaac called RASHI (1040-1105) or Moses Maimonides (1135-1204). Also, Judaism cannot predate the First Crusade of 1096. Judaism is not a B.C. religion.”
Judaism’s religious literature called the Hebrew Bible was printed for the Christian community under capitalistic influence. The capitalist at this time, c.a. 1475, had control of the very first printing press in Europe with moveable type, built by Johann Gutenberg in 1437 in Germany. The Roman Catholic Christian community felt left behind when the Old Testament was being printed in 1475 for the Christian community of Bologna, Italy, and felt the need to provide literature for and about their created religious object “Jesus the Christ.” Thus, in 1500 Pope Alexander VI (1492-1503) commissioned Desiderius Erasmus (1466?-1536), a playwright and ex-priest, to write about this created object.155 Thus, Erasmus produced the world’s first New Testament and second Bible, known at the time as The Novum Instrumentum, a.k.a. the Synoptic Gospels (Mark, Matthew and Luke). These were printed in 1516 by the Froben Press in Basil, Switzerland. The second Bible was called the Novum Testamentum in 1519 and remained that name until 1535 when it became what it’s known today as The New Testament.
For ninety-five years the Three Gospels were the only Biblical Gospels to be published. It was not until 1611 that the Fourth Gospel, John was created and published in the King James Bible. This Bible was created and dedicated to King James I of England by Lancelot Andrewes, an English theologian who selected other theologians to help create the so-called authorized version.
The name Soloman Bar Isaac can be traced through the events of the Crusades which were brought about by the threat by the Turkish Seljuks against the Byzantine Empire, and was essentially a land grab. This is contrary to the popular fairy tale told by many historians that romanticise about the mission of the Crusaders being a mission to protect pilgrims who were on route to Jerusalem or to save Christianity. “Their mission was not motivated by feelings of altruism to save Christianity, protecting Christian Pilgrims, or saving the Byzantine Empire although Christianity was used as a cloak to hide their main motivation, personal gain and the greed for money and riches. One source refers to the Crusades as a Frankish enterprise because Barons financed their personal armies in which three out of four armies came from France. Their mission or job was to identify land opportunities for expansion and seizure through hook, crook, or murder. The greatest prize, the Church of Hagia Sophia including its riches was no exception.
Knowing of the real threats to his empire by the Seljukian Turks in 1095 Alexia I sought help from the West to fight off the Turkish “infidels.” The likes of Peter the Hermit of France, Walter the Penniless from Germany along with other crusading armies financed by barons arrived at the gates of Constantinople.”
The army of Crusaders out of the north of France led by Godfrey De Bouillon, a soldier and bounty hunter, and his brother Baldwin seized the area that we know in modern times as Jerusalem in 1099.
Thus, Godfrey became the first Latin King. However, he eventually relinquished his title to his brother Baldwin I. “Legend has it that Godfrey visited and conferred with his financier the Baron, RASHI, before launching his crusade. Solomon Bar Isaac, called RASHI, is most known in history today as a Jewish commentator (inventor and contriver). RASHI is generally recognised as the person responsible for providing the foundation of Judaism. The world’s Jewish community celebrated his 900th birthday in 1940.”
We now know that all three major religions, albeit in corrupted and fabricated form, derives from ancient Egyptian or Kemetic spiritual knowledge. However, the plagiarising does not end there; the written and spoken language of Greek, Latin Hebrew and Arabic themselves comes from the same source. As Williams explains:
“During the time of antiquity an African people living in the Continent of Africa who are known to the world today as the Ancient Egyptians were the only people who were literate. The rest of the world populous was illiterate. This included the Greeks and the Romans. It is important to our understanding when studying the alphabet to know that every alphabet had its beginning in Ancient Egypt. The Ancient Egyptians developed a system of writing that was one of their greatest achievements (See alphabet chart). The Ancient Egyptians developed three forms of written communications; the first form was pictorial drawings or hieroglyphs. The second and third forms are the Phonetic I and Phonetic II alphabet respectively that allowed the Ancient Egyptians to write by the sound of what was spoken. The European academic community starting with James Brusce in the 1760's has designated the Phonetic I and Phonetic II alphabets of the Ancient Egyptians to be called Hieratic and Demotic. These two scripts are known today as the Arabic script. The old Phonetic I and Phonetic II are written in calligraphy with modern adaptations. From the Ancient Egyptian Phonetic alphabets came the Greek Latin, Hebrew, and Arabic scripts, which are misnomers.”
This is merely a very brief overview of the development of the three major religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, as much as can be reasonably covered here. For a more comprehensive appraisal I recommend reading Walter Williams’, The Historical Origin of Christianity and The Historical Origin of Islam and John G. Jackson’s Christianity before Christ.
Having been taught history in your average western or westernised educational institution, you would be forgiven for being quite shocked at the findings covered here. However, if you were to investigate these areas you will find it all to be quite factual and accurate. Most people haven’t even heard of the once infamous Serapis, and this peculiar European image or icon looks astonishingly out of place amongst the traditional African deities. As previously explained Kemet or Egypt had been in existence for literally tens of thousands of years before the arrival of the invading foreigners, the Greeks. The Kemeoo's spiritual practice, customs, rituals, literature, temples, laws, philosophy, and gods were well established by the time of this foreign influx, and there is no evidence that the Kemeoo were waiting for the Greeks or any other foreign intrusion for spiritual enlightenment. Quite on the contrary, the Kemeoo taught the Greco-Romans all they knew about spirituality; these foreigners were spiritually clueless before their tutelage from the African priest and priestesses of Kemet. The Greek historian Herodotus, c.a. 450 B.C.E. makes this fact abundantly clear with the following statement:
“Almost all of the names of the gods came into Greece from Egypt. My inquiries prove that they were all derived from a foreign source, and my opinion is that Egypt furnished the greater number. The Egyptians were the first to introduce solemn assemblies, processions, and litanies to the gods, all of which the Greeks were taught to use.
It seems to me a sufficient proof of this that in Egypt these practices have been established from remote antiquity, while in Greece they are only recently known.”
For years the Greco-Romans and their ancestors were collectively frustrated, jealous, intimidated, inadequate, angry, and confused at being second-best to the civilised Africans of Kemet, who consistently demonstrated how a real civilisation conducted themselves. This was shown by their exceptional leadership and insight in the arts and sciences, morality and philosophical thought, all of which were not separate from their spiritual way of life. Thus, when the opening arose to conquer Egypt neither the Greeks nor the Romans wasted the opportunity.
The Greco-Romans adoption and adaptation of this extremely remote and established spiritual knowledge was purely political, this can be testified by their blood thirsty conduct and brutish history. The spiritual knowledge gifted to the Greco-Romans was never accepted as a way of connecting with their natural divinity and the Creator, what it was, and is now, is a political opportunists dream come true, using the power of religion and emotion to control and exploit the mass population. If there are any doubts as to the validity of this statement, let’s briefly look at a couple of examples of the bloodshed and horror dispensed in the name of religion, specifically Christianity.
When in the late 15th century the Christian Spaniards first entered the Americas bearing the Holy Cross as their emblem it was a foray of expedition and curiosity. However, its second campaign was one of clear myopic purpose and something else entirely, bearing the same Christian insignia, the two thousand strong army of Spaniards were ordered: “Plant a colony! Build a church! Build a city! Let us have forts, farms, towns! Above all, pursue vigorously the search for gold.”
History tells us that this order was ruthlessly carried out by the arrogant Spanish army. One author wrote:
“I was awestruck when I saw how Cortes [Spanish leader] and his group marched into the Aztecs' capital city, right into the middle of the Aztec strength! As I continued to read the accounts, my wonder became flooded with hatred. The chroniclers began describing how the Spaniards butchered women, men and children; or how they burned some elderly man, while he was alive-all to uncover some piece of gold! It was not an insult to my senses alone. When the barbarous cruelty and gluttonous behaviour of the Spanish soldiers were publicized, people throughout Europe began to scorn the name of Spain. The murderous expeditions became known around Europe as “the Black Legend.”
During a conversation with Motecuhzoma [Aztec Leader], in the Aztec palace, Cortes and his soldiers suddenly attacked this ruler, chained him, and threatened to kill him if he did not send messengers to bring gold. Then the Spaniards slaughtered a group of unarmed Aztecs, to get the gold ornaments that adorned those celebrants, who were performing religious ceremonies in the city.”
As can be expected this sickening attack did not end there; it appears that the Spaniards were given another secret and much less publicised order; and this was to completely erase from memory the Aztec culture too, which would have obviously been a threat to their Christian ambitions, on this subject another author wrote:
“[The Aztec’s] manuscripts were made of different materials...but for the most part, of a fine fabric from the leaves of the aloe, agave Americana, called by the natives, maguey, which grows luxuriantly over the tablelands of Mexico. A sort of paper was made from it, resembling somewhat the Egyptian papyrus...At the time of the arrival of the Spaniards, great quantities of these manuscripts were treasured up in the country...The first archbishop of Mexico, Don Juan de Zumarraga...collected these paintings from every quarter, especially from Tezcuco, the most cultivated capital in Anahuac, and the great depository of the national archives. He then caused them to be piled up in a 'mountain-heap,'-as it is called by the Spanish writers themselves-in the market-place of Tlateloco, and reduced them all to ashes!
The unlettered soldiers were not slow in imitating the example of their prelate. Every chart and volume which fell into their hands was wantonly destroyed...They demolished, in a short time, all the Aztec temples, great and small, so that not a vestige of them remained...Sculptured images were so numerous, that the foundations of the cathedral in the playa mayor, the great square of Mexico, are said to be entirely composed of them. This spot may, indeed, be regarded as the Aztec forum, the great depository of the treasures of ancient sculpture, which now lie hid in its bosom. Such monuments are spread all over the capital, however, and a new cellar can hardly be dug, or foundation laid, without turning up some of the mouldering relics of barbaric art. But they are little heeded, and, if not wantonly broken in pieces at once, are usually worked into the rising wall, or supports of the new edifice. Two celebrated bas-reliefs, of the last Montezuma and his father, cut in the solid rock, in the beautiful groves of Chapoltepec, were deliberately destroyed, as late as the last century, by order of the government!”
Another example of Christian barbarity comes from the author of the book Roots, Alex Haley, where he described events of the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade: “One of the most perverse things,” he said, “that I have found in my long research was that the people, in what might be called the hierarchy of slavery, the owners, the agents, the captains of those ships, strove in every possible way to somehow manifest that they were functioning in a Christian context...
If at all possible, a slave ship sailing should sail on the Sabbath [for] there was a popular saying that “God will bless the journey.”
Another author noted: “There was a practice they had, when a slave ship began loading slaves, if at all possible, the first two on board would be male or female who would be recorded in the log as “Adam and Eve” and the rest were numbered 3,4,5 on up to 200, if they [could hold] that many...Hand in hand with the enslavement of African people came the destruction of African civilisation and the loss of a culture, which the European would later say never existed.”
A cruel and insensitive argument among traders developed as a consequence of overloading slaves. This was over the concept of “tight pack” or “loose pack”. More slaves would die if they were tightly packed on the ship. However, more could be loaded. If they were loosely packed, more would survive the journey and be in healthier condition when they arrived at the port of debarkation.
So how did the traders justify this malignant behaviour? Historian Dr. John Henrik Clarke explains: “There is a small library of literature on the Middle Passage, some written by captains of slave ships. The rationale and the pretence in England was that the slave was primitive, un-Christian, and that slavery brought them under the tutelage of Christianity. Other slave trading nations took the same attitude. The best literature illustrating this rational came from the Catholic and the Protestant church.”
In the first part of this article we clearly showed that the mother of all religions Christianity is nothing more than a fabrication of ancient spiritual knowledge, and an astro-theological allegory, where the main character Jesus plays the role of the Sun of the Zodiac, and his mother plays the role of the constellation Virgo (Virgo is Virgin in Latin). It also covered the numerous comparisons between Christianity and ancient knowledge. Historian Gerald Massey in his book Ancient Egypt: the Light of the World, Vol. II, published in 1907, cited more than 200 similarities between the lives of the ancient Egyptian gods Ausar and Heru and the life of Jesus the Christ, who was born at least 3,300 years later.
Some people claim that there was a famous revolutionary who the Byzantine Roman government based the story of Jesus on, and therefore, according to them, Jesus did actually exist. However, a few simple questions need to be answered for this to be true:
A) Was this revolutionary born on December 25th by the Virgin Mother Mary?
B) Did he walk on water, and perform other staggering feats and miracles?
C) Did he die on a cross, only to be resurrected again?
If the answer to any of these questions is no, then this revolutionary is not the Jesus that we have all been deliberately indoctrinated with, and therefore, Jesus did not exist.
Furthermore, Williams notes an obvious but little mentioned discrepancy with these fictional religious characters, when he remarked:
“If there were Biblical and Koranic characters such as Adam, Eve, Noah, Shem, Abraham, Ishmael, and Hagar, for example, where are the burial or shrine sites for these religious named characters? Why are Pilgrimages not made to and for these world famous religious characters?”
To add to his comment, it speaks volumes that he should need to ask that question in the first place, considering the fame of these religious characters. The very fact that to most, if not all people, the whereabouts of their burial sites remain a mystery should strike a huge spark of suspicion in one’s mind. Yet, you can easily find the burial sites of ancient Egyptian kings and queens that date thousands of years prior to the alleged existence of Jesus the Christ. Williams provides a further discrepancy worth repeating here:
“According to traditional Islamic teachings, the Prophet Muhammed died and was buried in Madina in 632 and ascended into heaven from Madina on the date of his death. Also, Islamic tradition teaches that Muhammed ascended into heaven from the Dome of the Rock Mosque in Jerusalem on the date of death. How can this Prophet Muhammed ascend into heaven from two different land areas at the same time, especially when the supposed Holy Land (Jerusalem) where the Dome of the Rock Mosque was built is only slightly over a hundred years old?”
These inconsistencies with the three major religions go on and on, and there are many more powerful examples available. If we are to move forward and put the unnecessary religiously motivated conflicts, bloodshed and wars behind us we must acknowledge the evidence at hand and apply logic and intellectual honesty even in the most sensitive of areas. Furthermore, we need to face the obvious reality that based on all the objective evidence the stories in the Bible, Torah and Koran, are mere politically motivated myths, allegories, and fables that never ever actually occured.

A.B.C.E. - The term A.B.C.E. (or After B.C.E.) is used by the historian Walter Williams to denote the time when B.C.E. ended, and includes the time until the close of the Council of Chalcedon (451 A.B.C.E.). At this point the Christian Era officially began; therefore, A.C.E. or (After the Christian Era) can be historically correct, the term After A.B.C.E. was invented by Williams.
Outside of Williams’ comments A.C.E. refers to After the Common Era and not After the Christian Era.
