Who is it without sin who can insult a woman yet unseen, and claim at the same time to be a follower of Jesus the Christ?
"Voodoo (Vodou, Vodoun, Vudu, or Vudun in) Benin;Togo; southeastern Ghana, Burkina Faso, and Senegal;also Vodou in Haiti) is a name attributed to a West African ancestral religious system of worship and ritual practices, where deities are born and honored, along with the veneration of ancient and recent ancestors who earlier served the same tutelary deities. This system of worship is widespread in a multitude of African groups in West Africa."
"Although the word "Vudu" (Ewe) and "Vodou" (Fon) are ancient words still extant in West Africa, some western scholars have speculated that the word "voodoo" is a transliteration of the French words vous tous (pronounced voo-too), meaning 'you all'. The name vodu comes from the West African language, Fon meaning 'spirit' or 'deity'. In the text that accompanied the UCLA Fowler Museum's nationwide exhibition - Sacred Arts of Haitian Vodou; editor and folklorist Donald Cosentino suggested that the word vodun first appeared in print during 1658 - written "by the Allada (Fon) ambassador to the court of Philip IV of Spain...in his Doctrina Christiana (Cosentino, 1995: 29)."
"Historically,from its inception, the word "voodoo" was deliberately employed to mock and denigrate what most American media, (Hollywood), and popular culture believed was an evil, superstitious, primitive African belief system. Also, it was typically the ceremonial aspects, particularly healing, and protection rituals which were known as "the work." "
"About 80% of the population of Benin, West Africa, about 4˝ million people, practice Vodun. (This does not count other ancestral religions in Benin.) In addition, many of the 20% of the population that call themselves Christian practice a syncretism of Christianity and Vodun not dissimilar from Haitian Vodou. In Togo about half the population practices indigenous religions, of which Vodun is by far the largest, with approximately 2˝ million followers; there may be perhaps another million among the Anlo-Ewe of Ghana (13% Anlo-Ewe and 38% indigenous beliefs overall out of a population of 20 million.)"
The Black Land or The Black Earth
The word Kemet is one of the indigenous Egyptian names for "Egypt." It is a conventional pronunciation of the transliteration kmt.
Khem (also spelt Chem) is the Egyptian word for black, and was usually used to describe the fertile soil surrounding the Nile, which was notably blackened. As such, it was also used by the Egyptians as a name for their nation, as it was principally composed of the fertile lands around the Nile. Some feel it may derive from the Hebrew translation, Ham - the name used by the writers of the Bible to refer to Egypt.
The ancient Egyptians gave their country the name "Kemet" ("km.t" in transliteration), which is translated by most Egyptologists as “the black land,” i.e. the strip of land made fertile by the black silt deposited by the annual rising of the Nile, which was the basis of both agriculture and transportation in ancient Egypt. However, Afrocentrists, who defend the theory of an African origin of Egyptian civilization, theorize that "kmt" has another meaning, namely “the land of the Blacks” (i.e. people).
For a period of time, Canaan was under Egyptian influence, as was Kush (part of Nubia), and Libya, one of whose leading tribes was named Pitu, there is also an ethnic connection between them. Although Ham was a name for Egypt and Africa in general, Mizraim, generally thought to translate as the two lands, was the name for the specific area of Upper and Lower Egypt in particular. Consequently, in order to describe the relationship between nations, the Bible mentions Canaan, Mizraim, Cush, and Phut, (considered by some academics to correspond to Pitu), to be the sons of Ham. Canaan was the latest region to become part of the Egyptian sphere of influence, and was the youngest. Literal readings of the text would imply that each of these nations was descended from a single person of that name, who founded the tribe from his immediate family members."
"Ancient Egyptian religion encompasses the beliefs and rituals of Ancient Egypt. It was followed for over three thousand years until the establishment of Coptic Christianity and Islam."
"The ethical system of Kemetic Reconstructionism is based on Ancient Egyptian texts. The most commonly used of these include the Declaration of Innocence (also called the "Negative Confessions"), which contain a list of forty-two sins a deceased person claims not to have done, and the Wisdom Texts, which are pieces of advice written by Ancient Egyptians.
The Declaration of Innocence reads much like the Ten Commandments, only much longer, including such sins as murder, muddying the rivers of the Nile river, adultery, theft, eavesdropping, and sexual perversion (often translated in older texts as committing homosexuality, although Kemetic Reconstructionists in general consider this a mistranslation and are open to homosexual members - a common theory is that the prohibition refers to child prostitution). To do good is seen as doing Ma'at, or what is right, just, and orderly."
"Connections between Jesus and Horus-Osiris have been raised by critics of the historicity of Jesus. For example, the death and resurrection of Horus-Osiris, and Horus' nature as both the son of Osiris and Osiris himself, have been seen as foundations for the later Christian doctrines of the resurrection of Jesus and the Trinity. Similar assertions have been made by other scholars, who draw parallels between the legends surrounding Mithras.
A few scholars and critics theorize further that certain elements of the story of Jesus were embellishments, copied from legends surrounding Horus through an abrupt form of syncretism. Indeed, some even claim that the historical figure of Jesus was copied from Horus wholesale, and retroactively made into a Jewish teacher; these assert that Horus was the basis for the elements assigned to the M Gospel (the bits in Matthew which are not in the Q Gospel or Mark) and the L Gospel (comprising the bits in Luke which are not in the Q gospel or Mark), especially the infancy"
