Re: books of the hebrew bible

Khufu's/Cheops' book/books might related to proto-bible (Khufu = Jacob)? There are supposedly Egyptian words or derived words in Exodus 1-2, like the word for river (Nile). Songs and Poetry considered oldest parts of Bible (eg Exod 15, Numbers 10, Joshua 10, Judges 5, 1 Sam 19) Similarities of Hammu...

Re: Allah is Apollo

I think Allah came from a clever combination of Arab god Ilah, and Roman Alleuia or De Ira or Arian or Adeodatus or Atlas/Atlantis (which may be the beast in Revelation). The Arab god Ilah may come from El/Il/Ilu or Enlil/Ilu. See https://iwillnotbeassimilated.blogspot.com/2017/09/origins-of-islam.h...

early origins of biblical God

Islam says the name of God in the Koran is only Allah. In the bible the name of God seems to be Yhwh/Jhvh. The other names like El/Elohim, Adonai, I Am, Abba, etc are more like titles or epithets or forms of address, while God's only actual personal name seems to be Yhwh. Some say that the name Yhwh...

Re: Keturah & Atlantis

Which came first the Greek being Atlas or the mountain in nw Africa? I would have thought that the mountains was named from the being rather than the being from the mountains. Unless the Greeks conflated similar sounding/looking names or similar/synonymous meanings. And if the being came first then ...

Re: Keturah & Atlantis

Not sure if your "Atlantos" is meaning/referring the name Atlas/Atlantis or the name Atarantes or "Atlantes". Atlantis' name is from Atlas (Greek god & mountain) whose name is supposed to mean "struggle" as in "athletics". It is not at all certain that &qu...

Re: yegads: Holy Moses, Thoth!

The Hebrew word koren can be "horns" or "rays" (or maybe eyes?) So it wouldn't be a copy by Europeans, but there might have been a parallel with the Egyptian at the time. Possibly the Armenian Moses of Choren is related. Not sure if it is the same word koren but the ram in Daniel...

Re: yegads: Holy Moses, Thoth!

I think that Moses was a real historical person like the bible says. I have candidates in the (6th? &) 12th (& 13th?) dynasty. But it is possible that Moses may have been analogously corresponded with Thoth, though I can't see how it helps any much with finding Moses in Egyptian history. Teh...

Re: Rohl's Joseph in Egypt

Various followers of the conventional chronology and of Rohl's chronology have claimed that Joseph can't be in the 2nd/3rd to 4th/5th dynasties period because they claim the dates don't/can't match. So this is just a post showing what dates or dynasties Joseph can match in Egyptian history. At prese...

Re: Sea of Galilee & Red Sea

Some interesting things there. It would be better if you provided transliterations in Roman alphabet of the Greek and Hebrew words as I'm not good with remembering/reading Greek alphabet and Hebrew alphabet. Yam Suph of Exodus may not have anything to do with reeds. It could mean something like Sea ...

Re: Keturah & Atlantis

Hoeh's Compendium of History also mentions Ephah & Epher (Bible) or Ephas & Ophren/Africa (Josephus) or Afer/Apher & Japhran (Polyhistor) or Apher & Japbran/Africa/Aphra (Cleodemus) or Hesperus & Atlas/Italus (Spanish) 2 generals/captains/auxiliaries of Hercules when he fought ag...
