4,000-year-old stone tablets depicting God Atum who flooded the Nile discovered in Egypt


Stone tablets dating back up to 4,000 years have been discovered by archaeologists in Cairo.

The tablets, which were discovered by researchers from the University of Leipzig, are made of limestone and vary in age.



The oldest is believed to be from the 12th Dynasty, while others are from the 20th Dynasty, the Third Intermediate Period, or more recent.

Atum being one of the most important and frequently mentioned gods, was featured in in the famed pyramid texts. He was the father of deities who created not only himself but Shu and Tefnut who were the first couple from which other deities descended from. They went on to help their "father" in creating the universe. The universe was created on a "mound of creation" called Benben that rose out of the receding flood of the Nile River.


Rather interesting story to the find of ancient flood mythology. While controversial the following has been discussed. Such as with Egyptian scribes had shared the similarity between Moses to the Egyptian word for water. Atum was compared to Adam.

The artifact was the latest find in Cario's Matariya neighborhood.

Thanks for sharing, the many areas of synchronicity shared between most of the early religions, including Christianity, is far more than mere coincidence.
Why do they share so many major plot points? That's a question for the ages....

Because they are derivatives of older myths. There is little originality in Christianity for example.

"Because they are derivatives of older myths. There is little originality in Christianity for example." (Moebius)

Very true, but where did the older myths come from, to be so similar?

It is almost as if these myths have been with us for a very very long time, I mean since man was in his single numbers? ie one man created the basic myth, creation,flood etc and this was then amended over time by different expanding societies of the man!

Perhaps we read too much into these myths/stories and they are just fabrications of unknown facts to control the people?

Interesting topic.

Ask 100 people about a car accident they just witnessed and you will get 100 different descriptions and even reasons as to how/why it happened.

At some point, A single cosmic entity created all of this we see, his friends were like wtf bro, he was like, it's cool broskies, they said it's not broskie, a war ensued, man was allowed to live after war ended, entities left.

The pyramids were part of a narrowband network of information. They used light to communication point to point all over the world instantly. This is why they all line up perfectly with each other. They had flight, they had electricity. Atlantis is in Mauratania. The World has been destroyed a few times over. It's likely civilization, as the Mayans said, has existed as we do today, 4 different times in the past.

This is why all stories of the past more or less coalesces around the same story, but passed down differently.

the book called "hamlets mill" attempts to address this and does it rather well in my opinion, they simply state that the reason so many civilisations had similar creation myths is that they are all based on astronomical observation

I read that but did care for it as it postulates an 'invisible civilization'.

en.wikipedia.org...




Hamlet's Mill was severely criticized by academic reviewers on a number of grounds: tenuous arguments based on incorrect or outdated linguistic information; lack of familiarity with modern sources; an over-reliance on coincidence or analogy; and the general implausibility of a far-flung and influential civilization existing and not leaving behind solid evidence.

[The] authors' insistence that between about 4000 B.C. and 100 A.D. a single archaic system prevailed throughout most of the civilized and proto-civilized world is pure fantasy. Their attempt to delineate the details of this system by a worldwide scatter of random oddments of mythology is no more than an intellectual game. [...] Something like 60 percent of the text is made up of complex arguments about Indo-European etymologies which would have seemed old-fashioned as early as 1870

I would highly recommend you listening to Jordan Peterson’s lecture series on the psychological significance of the Bible. On YouTube and podcast apps. It’s been mind blowing to me.

If you do, keep in mind that he isn’t lecturing on the theological or factual importance.

It was the first land.


Benben was the mound that arose from the primordial waters Nu upon which the creator deity Atum settled in the creation myth of the Heliopolitan form of ancient Egyptian religion.


From here

What are your thoughts about leaders of men?

Not too sure about his views, certainly do not think there is much of a connection between Jordan Petersons and the op.

Liked the D Abbot interview though!

I find it fascinating that these tales are represented in so many faiths tales.

Does it mean that the flood was widespread or was it only local but used by others as a threat to control all the people in some way, after a one off localised disaster?

It does seem obvious that there was some sort of flood event, I think I remember somebody locating a dark area in the rocks, that was taken as evidence of a flood, that was in N America I think.

Didn't the Nile flood every year? Before the dams and stuff?

There was no flood in the Benben myth.

The Earth was a watery abyss. The Benben was the first land to rise from the water. Not re emerging after a flood, land.

The title of the OP is inaccurate and misleading,

Although i don't blame dreamingawake for being interested and posting the piece.

It is still an interesting find.

It certainly did and the few times it was a weak one that caused a famine in Kemet.
