Edfu Texts

Egyptian Edfu Texts say unequivocally that the oldest evidence of iron smelting in Egyptian records was that conducted by the God Horus in a hidden place called UaUa in the land of Khennu.


Horus was said to have established a hidden iron smelting industry in the territory of a man called Khennu, in the UaUa region in the Southern lands, far away from Egypt, where he forged weapons for his war with Seth.


It is not a coincidence that Wawa and Nkannu are the aboriginal clan-names of people of Nsukka and people of Enugu state! This is recorded in Egyptian history as having taken place around 8,970 BCE, during the wars of Horus and Seth! Further evidence that Enugu State smelters were well known in world mythology is the fact recorded by Prof Afigbo in Nri mythology that when Eri came into Igbo land, the land was soaked with water, but God advised Eri to employ an Oka smith to dry the land with his bellows.




Pataeke Son of Ptah

Egyptians called Khemennu (Oke mmannu, shortened to Khe’nnu/Khennu - Nkannu) and whom the rest of the world called

‘gods’ for want of a better term.


That the Khemennu were known in Egyptian Book of the Dead as ape-men, on the one hand and as gods on the other – Primeval Ancestors of man and gods - tells the primitive African origin of Canaan and connects him with Nkannu clan.


These ape-men Khemennu were the Ndi Ushi of Igbo land. Their population was mostly dwarfs, who were also associated with metallurgy throughout antiquity. Africa’s most renowned archaeologist Felix Chami of the University of Dares Salaam wrote that the dwarfs, known throughout antiquity as the Neshi/Nehsi (Igbo Nshi) were Black Africans who served a hidden god of sun and fire known as Vul-can (a derivative of Nkannu). These Nehsi, Chami argued, were “the founders of Egyptian civilization”, and the Egyptians and Greeks called them Pancheans.

Herodotus and Homer spoke of a race of Black West Africans, “who came to Egypt and colonized it” Zecharia Sitchen in The Stairway to Heaven notes that the Egyptian God Amun/Atum-Ra – the God of Heliopolis - was called Vul-can, a name associated with fire (as in furnace), and that the land associated with him was called the Land of the Race of Can/Khan.


It is the original homeland of the Canaanites or Khenites/Qenites, who, according to Zecharia Sitchen, are reputed to be the world’s Oldest Blacksmiths. A new book (yet bo be released) by Hermel Hermstein titled Black Sumer - An African Origin of Civilization, has broken the deadlock surrounding Africa’s contribution to Sumerian civilization by advancing a West Africa mother tongue for Sumerians.

Anchored on the linguistic argument that the ancient Sumerians who mid-wifed the Babylonian, Assyrian and Mesopotamian civilizations that later sprung up in the Middle East, spoke the Niger-Congo language of ancient Nigeria and Cameroon. Hermstein posits that “Proto Niger-Congo has been estimated to date back to between 8,500 B.C. and 11,000 B.C.!”


The story of Creation in Eden was passed down from Sumer and became part of the mythologies of the whole world. In Lejja and in Igbo mythology these powerful ancients who never died were and are still being referred to as Ndi Ushi.


Their descendants were called and are still Adama in Igbo and Idoma languages, and Atama by the Edo and Igala people. They function as priests if the earth goddess Eze ana, and as First sons God among humanity. Adama/Atama means “founding Father of the race” in Igbo, Idoma and Igala. For this reason they are called Opara Adama in Igbo language. Opara Adama is the traditional Igbo truest form of kingship resting upon the Adamas by divine primogeniture direct from the god of the immortal Ape-men, who is the invisible God of this Earth Ele/El/Adum/Amun.

That the first dynasty of Pharaohs of Egypt were from Nigerian royal families, is evident from the fact that quite a number of them bore Nigerian tribal royal titles. L.A.Waddell who translated early Sumerian/Egyptian and Indian inscriptions of Sumerian king-lists, insists that Sumerian king-lists dovetails into Egyptian and Indian King-lists, and that the first dynasty of Egyptian Pharaohs from the lineage of the Nubian (Black African), Menes (3100 BCE), all used Sumerian titles. It is easily recognizable that the titles in question are titles of existing Nigerian royal houses!!


The titles showed that many of the first Pharaohs came from the royal houses of Eri, Attah and Gani/Gana and Dunu Oka, from the Kwa and Fulani tribes. Sumerian kings as well as Egyptian Pharaohs generally bore titles like Eri, Qa/Kwa, Attah, Dunu, Duru, Gani, Gana, Uru, Urashi, Asa, Aka, Aha, Kwush (Akwu Nshi)! Egyptologists are silent about this, but Waddell insists that these kings mostly used titles rather than personal names, and that the titles can be read in the memorial seals left behind by these Pharaohs.


Menes was called Aha or Aka, a title which in Igbo tradition implies that he was a dwarf (Aka Ushi) and a goddess worshiper (for it is the Igbo astronomical symbol of the dot enclosed in the circle).The 2nd king after Menes used the title Attah. The 3th Pharaoh of Menes’ dynasty used the title Gani Eri; the 4th used the title - Bag Eri, and the 5th used the title Dan in Egyptian seals, translated as Dun Du in Indian king-lists of the same kings from a common heritage of humanity. Dun Du can be said to be an abbreviation of Dunu Idu. Gani Eri was called Shar Eri, meaning King Eri. This title was first borne by the father of Menes, whom Waddell identifies as Sargon the Great (Shar Gani) the first king of Akkad in Sumer.


Pharaoh Dan/ Du Dunu was said to have called his grandfather, Gani Eri/King Eri, by the title “Shukunni, the Great Ukush, the Gut/God”. This obviously translates into Igbo as “Chukwuani/ Chukwuini /Chukwunna – God of the Earth/God in the Tomb/God the Father, Great Aka Ushi”! Aka Ushi implies this Immortal God is dwelling in the circular Womb of the Mother. It is also a collective term for all Ape-men.

Origen, Egypt, Greeks, Initiation, Priests, Mystery, Education

Circumcision Image

In this respect we further learn from Origen, that circumcision was compulsory, and one of the necessary

conditions of initiation to a knowledge of the hieroglyphics and sciences of the Egyptians and it is obvious that

Democritus, in order to obtain such knowledge must have submitted also to that rite. 0rigen, who was a native of Egypt wrote as follows:


"Apud Aegyptios nullus aut geometrica studebat, aut astronomiae secreta remabatur, nisi circumncisione suscepta."

Meaning no one among the Egyptians, either studied geometry, or investigated the secrets of astronomy, unless

circumcision had been undertaken.

Concerning the fact that Egypt was the

greatest education centre of the ancient world which was also visited by the Greeks, reference must again be made to Plato in the Timaeus who tells us that Greek aspirants to wisdom visited Egypt for initiation, and that the priests of Sais used to refer to them as children in the Mysteries.


As regards the visit of Greek students to Egypt for the purpose of their education. The following are mentioned simply to establish the fact that Egypt was regarded as the educational centre of the ancient world and that like the Jews, Grews and the Greeks also visited Egypt and received their education.


(1) It is said that during the reign of Amasis, Thales who is said to have been born about 58? B. C, visited Egypt and was initiated by the Egyptian Priests into the Mystery System and science of the Egyptians, We are also told that during his residence in Egypt, he learnt astronomy, land surveying, mensuration, engineering and Egyptian Theology. Thales in Blackwell's source book of Philosophy; Zeller's Hist. of Phil.; Diogenes Laertius and Kendrick's Ancient Egypt).


Philosophers, Pythagoras, Polycrates, Diogenes, Democritus, Herodotus



(2) It 'is said that Pythagoras, a native of Samos, travelled frequently to Egypt for the purpose of his education.




Like every aspirant, he had to secure the consent and favour of the Priests, and we are informed by Diogenes that a friendship existed between Polycrates of Samos and Amasis King of Egypt, that Polycrates gave Pythagoras letters of introduction to the King, who secured for him an introduction to the Priests;


first to the Priest of Heliopolis, then to the Priest of Memphis, and lastly to the Priests of Thebes, to each of whom Pythagoras gave a silver goblet.


(Herodotus Bk. lll 124; Diogenes VIII 3; Pliny N. H., 36, 9; Antipho recorded by Porphyry).


We are also further informed through Herodotus, Jablonsk and Pliny, that after severe trials, including

circumcision, had been imposed upon him by the Egyptian Priests, he was finally initiated into all their secrets.


That he learnt the doctrine of metempsychosis; of which there was no trace before in the Greek religion; that his knowledge of medicine and strict system of dietetic rules, distinguished him as a product of Egypt, where medicine had attained its highest perfection;


and that his attainments in geometry corresponded with the ascertained fact that Egypt was the birth

place of that Science.


In addition we have the statements of Plutarch, Demetrius and Antisthenes that Pythagoras founded the Science of Mathematics among the Greeks, and that he sacrificed to the Muses, when the Priests explained to him the properties of the right angled triangle.


(Philarch de Repugn. Stoic 2 p. 1089; Demeilius; Antisthenes; Cicero de

Natura Deorum III, 36).


Pythagoras was also trained in music by the Egyptian priests. (Kendricik's Hist. of

Ancient Egypt vol. 1. p. 234).


(3) According to Diogenes Laertius and Herodotus, Democritus is said to have been born about 400 B. C. and to have been a native of Abdera in Miletus.


We are also told by Demetrius in his treatise on "People of the Same Name",

and by Antisthenes in his treatise on "Succession", that Democritus travelled to Egypt for the purpose of his

education and received the instruction from the Priests.


We also learn from Diogenes and Herodotus that he spent five years under the instruction of the Egyptian Priests and that after the completion of his education, he wrote a treatise on the sacred characters of Meroe.
