Athena was the "goddess of war", so for her to be depicted as a black woman in the beginning shows just how much the Greeks admired and exoticized black people. However, both mythology and history attest to the fact that black women and/or women of African…

The fact that Hebrew, Greek, and Latin connections all show potentially show the migration of Shemitic and Hamitic peoples from Arabia all the way to the Congo and other places in Africa. Remember, Israelites spoke Greek and Latin, at least those who lived amongst the Greeks and Romans, so it makes sense why we find those languages in Africa because this…

Sun Worship Amongst African Amazons

Source: The Amazons: Chapter VII: Amazons of Africa (Sacred Texts) 1910 A.D. From the African Amazon chapter of the source, "DIODORUS SICULUS, quoting Dionysius the historian, says that there was a prodigious race of Amazons who rose, flourished exceedingly, and disappeared long before the Trojan War--so long before, indeed, that their renown had been obscured by the newer glory of the Amazons of the Pontus. The more ancient race had its origin in Libya, that Africa which lay between Egypt and Ethiopia on the east, the Atlantic on the west, bounded on the north by the classic strip of Mediterranean…

From the source, "By the late eighth century B.C., the Phoenicians, alongside the Greeks, had founded trading posts around the entire Mediterranean and excavations of many of these centers have added significantly to our understanding of Phoenician culture. Sea traders from Phoenicia and Carthage (a Phoenician colony traditionally founded in 814 B.C.) even ventured beyond the Strait of Gibraltar as far as Britain in search of tin. However, much of our knowledge about the Phoenicians during the…

The Ibo Jews Descend From the Tribe of Gad, Zevulun, Menashe, Levitical Migrants, Judeans, and Asher

Source: Nigeria Virtual Jewish History Tour (Jewish Virtual Library) 2020 A.D. From the source, "According to oral traditions, the Ibo have resided in “Iboland,” a region of modern-day Nigeria, for over 1500 years. Before that, the tradition asserts that they were migrants from ancient Israel. There exist a number of theories that explain from whom the Ibo are descendant, and how they came to reside in Nigeria. One theory contends that the Ibo are the descendants of one of the lost tribes. Ibo Jews The Ibo of Benei Gath are said to have descended from Gath (Gad), the eighth son of Jacob. The…

Potential Evidence that Ancestor Worship Existed in Ancient Israel-Ancestor Worship is Prevalent in Some African Peoples

Potential Evidence that Ancestor Worship Existed in Ancient Israel-Ancestor Worship is Prevalent in Some African Peoples

Source: ANCESTOR WORSHIP (Jewish Encyclopedia) 1906 A.D. From the source, " The same homage and adoration paid to deceased parents and more remote ancestors as usually given to deities. Many anthropologists are of opinion that this was the original form of religion (H. Spencer, Lippert); the school represented by Stade and F. Schwally argues that it was the original religion of Israel before Jahvism was introduced by Moses and the Prophets. According to them, much of the priestly legislation was directed against the rites connected with Ancestor Worship. At present the view that the original religion of the Israelites was…

Source: Tacitus (Jewish Virtual Library) 2021 A.D. From the source, "He gives a bizarre picture of Jewish national and religious origins (Histories 5:2–5), though in referring to traditions which variously make the first Jews Cretan, Egyptian, Ethiopian, or Assyrian exiles, or the nation of the Solymi celebrated by Homer, he is not wholly inaccurate, since the theory of Assyrian origin may fit with the biblical account of Abraham's wanderings from Chaldea. Nor is his account wholly unfavorable, since the Romans, whose own origins were questionable (see the preface to Livy's History), admired and envied peoples who had ancient origins. Tacitus agrees with…

The First People Were Black | Adam, Shem, Ham, and Japheth

Source: Light and Truth (Library of Congress - Boston, Pub. by a committee of colored gentlemen, B.F Roberts, printer) 1844 A.D. - pg. 10-19 Page 10, "The word Adam derived as follows: Adam, Adamah, Adami, Adamh - which means earthly. The earth is a rich, dark substance, and from it our first parents were taken. Now if we admit that Dr. Brown's and other Bible Dictionaries are correct in their explanations of the meaning of terms, then the deduction must be that Ethiopia (Gen. ii. 13,) was black, and the first people were Ethiopians, or blacks.
