Stolen Legacy: Importance of Truth
We are taught that the Greeks were the founders of Western civilization. However, all the ancient Greeks said they learned everything the knew in Egypt -- the high center of learning in the ancient world. The late Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, author of many books who was an associate professor at Rutgers University said a book of 1,000 pages could not list the names of all the Greeks who studied in Egypt. The ancient Greeks were unambiguous about their studies in Egypt. It was a mark of honor to have studied there.
British writer Martin Bernal, author of Black Athena, said that in the "Ancient Model" of history was accepted in in Europe until the 1800s. In the "Ancient Model", the testimony of the ancient Greeks was accepted in which they reported that they had learned everything they knew from the Black Egyptians. Europeans accepted that the Greeks were first colonized by the Black Egyptians and in a later stage, were civilized by them. However, in the 1800s the fraudulent "Aryan Model" was introduced.n which is in place today. In that model, the Greeks are given credit for everything from philosophy (Socrates, Plato, Aristotle), to medicine (Hippocrates), to history (Herodotus), to math (Pythagorus), etc. In the "Aryan Model", the Egyptians are ignored -- and/or said not to have been Black.
Book: Stolen Legacy
Amazon says of the book Stolen Legacy: The Egyptian Origins of Western Philosophy is by George G. M. James:
“For centuries the world has been misled about the original source of the Arts and Sciences; for centuries Socrates, Plato and Aristotle have been falsely idolized as models of intellectual greatness; and for centuries the African continent has been called the Dark Continent, because Europe coveted the honor of transmitting to the world, the Arts and Sciences. It is indeed surprising how, for centuries, the Greeks have been praised by the Western World for intellectual accomplishments which belong without a doubt to the Egyptians or the peoples of North Africa.
The term Greek philosophy, to begin with a misnomer, for there is no such philosophy in existence. The ancient Egyptians had developed a very complex religious system, called the Mysteries, which was also the first system of salvation.… The Egyptian Mystery was also a Secret Order, and membership was gained by initiation and a pledge to secrecy. After nearly five thousand years of prohibition against the Greeks, they were permitted to enter Egypt for the purpose of their education.
First through the Persian invasion and secondly through the invasion of Alexander the Great. From the sixth century B.C. therefore to the death of Aristotle (322 B.C.) the Greeks made the best of their chance to learn all they could about Egyptian culture; most students received instructions directly from the Egyptian Priests, but after the invasion by Alexander the Great, the Royal temples and libraries were plundered and pillaged, and Aristotle’s school converted the Library at Alexandria into a research center. There is no wonder then, that the production of the unusually large number of books ascribed to Aristotle has proved a physical impossibility, for any single man within a lifetime.”
Recovering Ancient Egyptian Principles Can Help Us Now!
As we seek to raise our consciousness now, it is important to consider the new system we want to create on Earth.
In recovering now the central role that Egypt played in Western culture, we have the opportunity to correct the mistakes made for centures. The Olmecs were the "mother civilization" of the Western Hemisphere where they carried the knowledge of the Egyptian pyramids. The Principles of Maat allowed ancient Egypt to become enlightened and to remain powerful and prosperous for thousands of years. If we adopt those values now, they can help raise our consciousness! One of the core principles of Maat is the truth. So, we must now be willing to re-discover the historical truth.
We must correct the Stolen Legacy now -- for the sake of all humanity!
