“Is The Bible The Word Of God Or The Work Of Man?” (videos in the article)
I write this today to have a serious discussion with those who believe and adhere to the Bible in all of its versions, but particularly ‘The so-called Authorized ‘King James’ Version. These passages which I am providing will prove conclusively that the Biblical writers plagiarized, convoluted, and perverted our ancient Afrikan Nile Valley story with their Euro-Asiatic cultural ideas and concepts. And quiet as it’s kept, we are still Afrikan people. That has not changed, despite our having been in the Western hemisphere for over 400 years. Let us be clear, the Bible is not the word of God. It is the work of men, evil men at that. If you are in doubt of what I am asserting, all you need do is read The Old edition of The King James version of the Bible.
Here are some things to consider: There are several books mentioned in the Bible, but those books mentioned, are not contained within its pages. Here are some of those Books. In Numbers 21:14 (The Book of Wars of The Lord), Joshua 10:13 (The Book of Jasher), 1st Chronicles 29:29 (The Books of Nathan and Gad), 2nd Chronicles 9:29 (The Book of Nathan, The Prophecy of Ahijah, The Shilonite, and The Visions of Iddo), 2nd Chronicles 12:15 (The Book of Shemiah and The Visions of Iddo), 2nd Chronicles 20:13 (The Book of Jehu). My question is this: Where are these books, who removed them, and why?
There are major plagiarized passages and stories from ancient Nile Valley texts, such as “The 10 Commandments”, which were plagiarized from “The 42 Principles of Ma’at”. They are still available for anyone to read. They are carved, painted, and written on the walls of every Temple and Tomb built by the ancient Kemetu (Egyptians). They are also written on the many papyri they’ve left us all over Kemet, as well. Or you can read them in chapter 125, plate #31, of what is now known as “The Egyptian Book of The Dead”, but what should be correctly referred to as “Pert-Em-Heru” (“The Book of Coming Forth From Darkness Into Light”).

Another plagiarized passage is The Book of Psalms 104, dated, circa 2nd century B.C.E., which is almost identical to the much earlier Papyrus entitled, “The Hymn Of Aten”, written by Pharaoh Akhnaten, dated circa 1353 B.C.E.
AKHENATEN: “Hymn To Aten”
You arise beauteous in the horizon of the heavens
Oh living Aten who creates life.
When you shine forth in the Eastern horizon you fill every land with your beauty.
You are so beautiful: you are great; gleaming and high over every land.
Your rays embrace the lands and all you have created;
You are Re and reach out to all your creations, and hold them for your beloved Son. You are afar, but your rays touch the earth;
Men see you, but know not your ways.
When you set in the Western horizon of the sky
The earth is in darkness like the dead.
People sleep in their rooms with covered heads;
They do not see each other.
If all their possessions were stolen
They would know it not.
Every lion leaves its lair;
All snakes bite;
Darkness covers all.
The world is silent
For the creator rests in his horizon.
When you rise from the horizon the earth grows bright;
You shine as the Aten in the sky and drive away the darkness;
When your rays gleam forth, the whole of Egypt is festive.
People wake and stand on their feet
For you have lifted them up.
They wash their limbs and take up their clothes and dress;
They raise their arms to you in adoration.
Then the whole of the land does its work;
All cattle enjoy their pastures,
Trees and plants grow green.
Birds fly up from their nests
And raise their wings in praise of your spirit.
Goats frisk on their feet,
And all fluttering and flying things come alive
Because you shine on them.
Boats sail up and downstream,
All ways are opened because you have appeared.
The fish in the river leap up to you
Your rays are in the deep of the sea.
You are the creator of the issue in woman,
The seed in men;
You give life to the son in his mother’s womb
Soothing him so he does not cry
Oh nurse within the womb.
You give the breath of life to all your creations
From the day they are born.
You open their mouths and give them sustenance.
To the chick that cries “tweet” while still in the egg
You give breath in the shell to let him live,
And make the time for him to break the shell
And come out of the egg at the moment for him to chirp
And patter on his two feet.
How manifold are your works: they are secret from our sight
Oh unique god, no other is like you.
You made the earth after your own heart
When you were alone. All men, herds
And flocks, all on the earth that goes on its feet;
and all that is in the sky and flies with its wings.
The land of Egypt, the foreign lands of Syria and Nubia too –
You put every man in his place and fulfil his needs;
Each one with his sustenance and the days of his life counted,
Their language is different,
And they look different;
Their complexions are different,
For you have distinguished the nations.
You make the seasons to bring into being all your creatures;
Winter to cool them,
And the heat of summer to come from you.
You have made the sky afar off
So when you rise you can see all you have made.
You alone rise in the form of the living Aten
Shining afar, yet close at hand.
You make millions of forms out of you alone,
Towns and villages, fields, roads and river.
All eyes see you before them
For you are the Aten of the day, over all the earth.
You are in my heart and none other knows thee
But your son “Akhenaten”;
You have given him understanding of your designs and your power.
The people of the world are in your hand
Just as you have created them.
All men since you have made the earth you have raised for your son
Who came forth from your body,
The King of Egypt who lives in truth,
Lord of Diadems, Akhenaten, whose life is long:
And for his beloved wife
Mistress of Two Lands, Nefernefruaten Nefertiti
May she live and flourish in eternity.
COMPARE TO THE LATER WRITTEN PSALM 104 :
Bless the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, thou art very great; thou art clothed with honour and majesty.
Who coverest thyself with light as with a garment: who stretchest out the heavens like a curtain:
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters: who maketh the clouds his chariot: who walketh upon the wings of the wind:
Who maketh his angels spirits; his ministers a flaming fire:
Who laid the foundations of the earth, that it should not be removed for ever.
Thou coveredst it with the deep as with a garment: the waters stood above the mountains.
At thy rebuke they fled; at the voice of thy thunder they hasted away.
They go up by the mountains; they go down by the valleys unto the place which thou hast founded for them.
Thou hast set a bound that they may not pass over; that they turn not again to cover the earth.
He sendeth the springs into the valleys, which run among the hills.
They give drink to every beast of the field: the wild asses quench their thirst.
By them shall the fowls of the heaven have their habitation, which sing among the branches.
He watereth the hills from his chambers: the earth is satisfied with the fruit of thy works.
He causeth the grass to grow for the cattle, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth;
And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth man’s heart.
The trees of the Lord are full of sap; the cedars of Lebanon, which he hath planted;
Where the birds make their nests: as for the stork, the fir trees are her house.
The high hills are a refuge for the wild goats; and the rocks for the conies.
He appointed the moon for seasons: the sun knoweth his going down.
Thou makest darkness, and it is night: wherein all the beasts of the forest do creep forth.
The young lions roar after their prey, and seek their meat from God.
The sun ariseth, they gather themselves together, and lay them down in their dens.
Man goeth forth unto his work and to his labour until the evening.
O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.
So is this great and wide sea, wherein are things creeping innumerable, both small and great beasts.
There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.
These wait all upon thee; that thou mayest give them their meat in due season.
That thou givest them they gather: thou openest thine hand, they are filled with good.
Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust.
Thou sendest forth thy spirit, they are created: and thou renewest the face of the earth.
The glory of the Lord shall endure for ever: the Lord shall rejoice in his works.
He looketh on the earth, and it trembleth: he toucheth the hills, and they smoke.
I will sing unto the Lord as long as I live: I will sing praise to my God while I have my being.
My meditation of him shall be sweet: I will be glad in the Lord.
Let the sinners be consumed out of the earth, and let the wicked be no more. Bless thou the Lord, O my soul. Praise ye the Lord.
In addition, the story of Ausar, Aset, and Heru (Osiris, Isis, and Horus), which is contained in the opening chapter of “Pert-Em-Heru” (“The Egyptian Book of The Dead”), translated by E. Wallis Budge and this where the Biblical writers plagiarized the story of Yashua (so-called perverted name of Jesus) from.
This story predates even Kemet and can be found existing in ancient Ta-Seti, Nubia, at least 1,000 years before Kemet (Egypt) became a United Nation in 5660 B.C.E. for the first time in recorded history.

In fact, there is no letter J contained anywhere in the Hebrew language or the Greek language, for that matter. There wasn’t even a Letter J contained within the English language until the 16th Century A.C.E.
The letter J
10th letter of the English alphabet, pronounced “jay,” as in “kay” for -k-, but formerly written out as jy, rhyming with -i- and corresponding to French ji.
One of the most stable English letters (it has almost always the same sound), it is a latecomer to the alphabet and originally had no sound value. The letter itself began as a scribal modification of Roman -i- in continental Medieval Latin. The scribes added a “hook” to small -i-, especially in the final position in a word or roman numeral, to distinguish it from the strokes of other letters. The dot on the -i- (and thus the -j-) and the capitalization of the pronoun I are other solutions to the same problems.
In English, -j- was used as a roman numeral throughout Middle English, but the letter -y- was used to spell words ending an “i” sound, so -j- was not needed to represent a sound. Instead, it was introduced into English c. 1600-1640 to take up the consonantal sound that had evolved from the Roman i- since Late Latin times. In Italian, g- was used to represent this, but in other languages j- took the job. This usage is attested earliest in Spanish, where it was in place before 1600.
No word beginning with J is of Old English derivation. [OED]
English dictionaries did not distinguish words beginning in -i- and -j- until 19c., and -j- formerly was skipped when letters were used to express serial order.
In Latin texts printed in modern times, -j- often is used to represent Latin -i- before -a-, -e-, -o-, -u- in the same syllable, which in Latin was sounded as the consonant in Modern English you, yam, etc., but the custom has been controversial among Latinists:
The character J, j, which represents the letter sound in some school-books, is an invention of the seventeenth century, and is not found in MSS., nor in the best texts of the Latin authors. [Lewis]
In English words from Hebrew, -j- represents yodh, which was equivalent to English consonantal y(hence hallelujah) but many of the Hebrew names later were conformed in sound to the modern -j-(compare Jesus).
There is also no archaeological or anthropological evidence that a man even resembling the one described in the Gospels of The Bible existed either. Keep this in mind. Our ancient, indigenous Afrikan Nile Valley ancestors made sure that we would never forget our story by carving it, or writing, and painting it on the walls of the Temples and Tombs in Kemet (Egypt). They also wrote it on Papyri, on what later became known as paper.
Now, even if we allow the claim that such a man existed, there are also many contradictions, related to that story, as well as others contained in the Bible too. Here are just a few for you to examine. These passages describe who came to see the sepulcher where Yashua (Jesus) lay in his tomb: The Gospel of Matthew 28:1, it says it was Mary Magdalene and the other Mary who came, @ dawn on the first day of the week. In the Gospel of Mark 16:1, it says it was Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, and Salome, who came @ dawn, on the first day of the week. In the Gospel of Luke 24:1 &10, it says it was Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, Joanna, and other women who were with them, who came @ dawn, on the first day of the week. Finally, in the Gospel of John 20:1, it says it was Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, Joanna, and other women who were with them, who came @ dawn, on the first day of the week.
So, who actually came to witness this event @ dawn, on the first day of the week? Was it Mary Magdalene and the other Mary who came, or was Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, and Salome, who came, or was it Mary Magdalene, Mary the Mother of James, Joanna, and other women who were with them, who came, or was it Mary Magdalene, all by herself, who came who came? So, which of these stories in the Gospels am I to believe?
In addition, none of these historians from the first century have provided us with any actual evidence that any man who even resembles the man now known as Jesus, described in the Bible existed either. Neither Thallus (52 A.D.), Tacitus (56-120), Mara Bar-Serapion (70 A.D.), Phlegon (80-140 A.D.), Pliny the Younger (61–113 A.D.), Suetonius (69–140 A.D.), Lucian of Samosata (115–200 A.D.), Celsus (175 A.D.), Josephus (37-101 A.D.), the Jewish Talmud 400-700 A.D. have any evidence contained in their writings that proves such a man existed either. None of these Historians saw him, or spoke to him, or heard him speak, nor do any of their quotes come from anyone who actually saw him, spoke to him, or heard him speak either. All of their quotes are second-hand information or they are trying to infer that he existed. But none of these Historians have provided any actual independent evidence that he actually existed. In fact, the earliest Gospel, which is the Gospel of Mark wasn’t written before 33-40 or so years after such a man supposedly died in 33 A.D. There isn’t even any degree of certainty as to who wrote any of the Gospels. Because the so-called Disciples didn’t speak Greek or write in Greek. They spoke and wrote in Hebrew and Aramaic and the 4 Gospels, as first discovered were all first written in Greek. None of the Gospels as initially handed to down to us were written in Hebrew or Aramaic. And most Biblical scholars generally agree that the writers of the 4 Gospels are all anonymous. So we don’t know who wrote any of them.
Also, there are these two contradictory passages: Genesis 22:14, where it says, “And Abraham called the name of that place Jehovah Jireh, as it is said to this day, in the Mount of Lord it shall be seen”. Then compare that passage to this one in Exodus 6: 2&3, where it says, “And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the Lord: And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by my name of God Almighty, but by my name Jehovah, was I not known to them”. So the question is how can Abraham name a place after Jehovah, but not know him by that name?
There is also this contradiction. In Genesis 32:30 it says, “And Jacob called the name of the place Pe-ni–‘el: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved”. However, in The Gospel of John 1:18, it says, “No man hath seen God at any time…” So, has man seen God or not?
In addition, in Genesis, there are two different descriptions of how man and woman were created. In Genesis 1:26-27, it says man and woman were created at the same time. In Genesis 2:20-23, it says Adam was created first and was by himself before God created Eve. So which story am I to accept as correct? These two passages contradict each other. And what about a talking snake? If you believe that a snake talked to someone, I’ve got a bridge I want to sell you for $5.00. A snake has never talked to anyone before or since. Nor has anyone ever walked on water either.
There is also the problem of the first Ecumenical Council convened by Emperor Constantine, referred to as “The Council of Nicaea”, where they created “The Nicene Creed” (The Father, Son, and The Holy Ghost/Spirit) on June 19, 325 A.C.E. (A.D.). Before 325 A.C.E., there was no such creed as the ‘Nicene Creed’ that governed any Church anywhere. And, in fact, there have been many Ecumenical Councils held since this time, to further add to and take away from what is now referred to Christianity.
There’s an article that was written in ‘The USA TODAY’, dated November 3, 1999, p.11 D, entitled, “Archaeologist Tries To Rip Out Jewish History’s Biblical Roots”, proving that most of the events and famous personages described in the Bible never happened nor existed. In the article, Ze’ev Herzog, a professor at Tel Aviv University, argues that the Exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt probably never happened, the Ten Commandments were not given on Mount Sinai, and Joshua never conquered the land of Israel.
Herzog says that if there was a King David, he probably was no more than a tribal chieftain. The same holds true for King Solomon. “The many Egyptian documents known to us do not make any reference to the sojourn of the Children of Israel in Egypt or the events of the Exodus”. He said, “Generations of scholars tried to locate Mount Sinai and the stations of the tribes of Israel in the desert. Despite all of this diligent research, not one site was identified that could correspond to the Biblical picture”.
Later, in the same article, they found a scholar who disputes what Professor Herzog said. Here is what Adam Zertal, an archaeologist at the University of Haifa, who has dedicated his life to mapping out the Biblical episodes in Samaria, including the entry of Joshua into the Holy Land, had to say. He said, “We found almost certain proof that the story of the entry into Israel is very believable. The relevant materials are in the field. We only have to find them”. So, which is it? Either he found the relevant materials in the field or he didn’t? It should be crystal clear from his statement, he hasn’t found them yet. So far, no one else has found them either. Even the Bible says in Galatians 4:22-24, the story of Abraham, Ishmael, and Isaac is an allegory. This means the story has another, symbolic meaning, other than the one most people accept literally.
22 “For it is written, that Abraham had two sons, the one by a bondmaid, the other by a freewoman.”
23 “But he who was of the bondwoman was born after the flesh; but he of the freewoman was by promise.”
24 “Which things are an allegory: for these are the two covenants; the one from the mount Sinai, which gendereth to bondage, which is Agar.”
- 1.a story, poem, or picture that can be interpreted to reveal a hidden meaning, typically a moral or political one:“Pilgrim’s Progress is an allegory of the spiritual journey”
You also have some ignorant people saying that the ancient Afrikans of the Nile Valley worshiped the Sun, or that they worshiped Idols/Images. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you could read MDW NTR (Hieroglyphs) you’d realize that those same images are contained within their language. Those statues are actually words telling you the name of the particular Temple you are entering. The Kemetu (ancient Egyptians) never prayed to or worshiped idols at all. That is a Euro-Asiatic fallacy. In fact, what the Kemetu (Egyptians) understood was that the Sun (Ra) was the most visible manifestation of the power of Amen (Hidden One who abides in all things, at all times). And the people of Kemet never worshiped many Gods as is erroneously presumed either. In fact, they worshiped the Creator/Creatress thru its many manifestations of the One Supreme Wa Creator/Creatress (One) and referred to those many Manifestations/Attributes of the Wa, by different names, which all had meanings and functions.
Names such as Amen/Amun (The Hidden One, who abides in all things, at all times), Ra (The Sun and is the most powerful manifestation of the power of Amen, for it gives life to all things on this planet. Nothing can live or exist without it), Kheper Ra (The Ever Self-Creating One / Self Rejuvenating One), Tehuti (Neter Of Writing and Wisdom), Ptah (The Opener or The Revealer), and in other parts of Afrika, such as these attributes (Orishas): Oludumare (Preeminent), Shango (Neter of War), Oshun (Netert of Water and the Niger River), etc. And yet, they never say this of the people of the Qur’an, who have 99 Attributes of Allah, such as Al-Nas (The Ilah of Mankind), Al-Khattah (The Revealer), Al-Rahman (The Most Gracious), Al- Rahim (The Most Merciful), etc. Or the people of the Bible, who have Yahweh/Yehowah (The Most High), Adonai (Authority), and Elohim (Plural forms/ Neteru/Orishas of Wa), and where it says in Psalms 84:11, “For the Lord thy God is a Sun…”, Malachi 4:2, where it says, “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings, and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves in the stall”.
The Biblical writers, as well as those who wrote the Qur’an seem to have understood something that many people who believe in the Bible and the Qur’an have failed to understand. In Hosea 13:4, it says “Yet I am the Lord thy God from the land of Egypt (Kemet) and thou shalt know no other God but me: for there is no savior besides me”. You’ll notice, it did not say, “…from the land of Israel”. It says “…from the land of Egypt”. In fact, the Bible even mentions The God, Amen in the Book of Revelations 3:12-14.
The Bible fully confirms the plagiarized concepts etc. I’ve presented from the Bible. In fact, in the Book of Acts 7:22, it says “And Moses was learned in all of the wisdom of the Egyptians”. That Egyptian wisdom is called Ma’at (“Truth, Justice, Righteousness, Balance, Reciprocity, Harmony And Order”). The Bible even advocates GENOCIDE in Deuteronomy 3:3-9 and in Joshua 6:12-21. Why would I worship a God who would advocate GENOCIDE? This is the God of our ancestral enemies. Finally, for those who claim we must be the ancient Hebrews based upon Deuteronomy 28:63-28:64, I offer as a counter, to that passage, that it be compared with Ezekiel 30:23 and Ezekiel 30:26. We are our ancestors and our ancestors are us. For, we could not be, without them. We are an Afrikan people!!!
