For too long we've delayed writing posts that get to the core of the matter of the ongoing, brutal degeneration of America; not only America's political and financial addiction to Judeo money and judeo corp. 'news' and cultural media approval,
but the even deeper Anglo/American psychological addiction to a bible 'g-o-d' whose constant and recurring theme is hate, jealousy, and the systematic killings of tens of thousands, upon hundreds of thousands of people as related in bible stories
(and tens of millions of people killed in human perpetrated "democides" over the centuries, if the judeo/christ-ian diety "yahweh" truly was the creator of the universe and would therefore be able to prevent the flow of blood and horrors from so many human killings over the centuries.)
Below, we relaunch our discussion on the origins of Judaism, with this incredibly informative video that not only captures a slice in time 2,500 years ago... but captures intimate moments in the family life of a king... and simultaneously captures the REIGN OF TERROR and RELIGIOUS PURGES he imposed on his terrorized subjects!
While in earlier posts we've previewed this coming discussion into
the real, historical, brutal and sociopathic roots of Judaism by
presenting videos of the ancient warfare that established the first
empires in the region: Michael Wood's Legacy (pt. 1) The Origins of
Civilization and a similar video on the rise of kings & empires
"Kings From Babylon to Baghdad" here we present another absolute gem
of historical documentary that reveals some of the EGYPTIAN THEMES that
were clearly PREDECESSORS of the Hebrews' "one true god" theme.
Like the Hebrews religious story of their leaders relentless destiny to smash idols
and throw down false gods, so did Egyptian Pharaoh AHKENATON
launch wholesale PURGES against the entire pantheon of then dominant
Egyptian gods - in particular Amun - when he ascended the throne on his
But while MOSES, ABRAHAM, Joseph, Joshua, and
other early bible patriarchs are ALL MYTHICAL figures, with NO
archeological evidence to support their existence
corroborating evidence from any neighboring cultures) there is clear
and compelling archeological evidence that Akhenaten lived - ironically,
despite his successors trying to purge & eliminate his record, and
even his very existence, from the Egyptian historical narrative, that was carved
in stone etchings,
and left in the still tangible form of the remains of an ancient city that was abandoned as
soon as the Pharaoh died.
This is a great example of
BBC productions doing what they should - examining our past, and
uncovering or documenting details which have huge significance
historically and even in our lives today - for, as the video concludes,
while Akhenaten was reviled in his own time for his singular obsession
with a single god... this ember of religious thought would smolder on
for centuries, it would percolate through the perceptions of Egyptians
and their neighbors alike, and it would eventually burst into flame
several centuries later, when the Hebrews adopted a similar INTOLERANT!
brand of monotheism as their state religion..
AKHENATEN PRAYER to Ahten, SUN DISK... the nearly verbatim
PRECEDECESOR to BIBLE 104 Psalm !!
