The Afar Say they Come From Yemen

Source: Afar (Encyclopedia) 2021 A.D.

Evidence for the Existence of Totem, Animism, Tattoo, Ancestor Worship, and Animal Worship Culture in the Ancient Near East

Abraham Called By God 1 Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: 2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. 4 So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him:…
