Part V: The Maya
Welcome to the Part IV of the Ancients series. There has been a lot of recent news regarding new archaeological discoveries which continually make us
question conventional history. In this series I will aim to explore 5 ancient civilizations which all heavily dispute our currently accepted history
through their recorded literature and technological feats. The main focus will be on any areas of interest in regards to these civilizations, whether
these be technological, mythological, etc. In doing so I hope to cement a strong case that will at least allow for credible discretion against current
accepted theory ; further, to have a guide here for those who are new to this area and are interested in getting the basics and exploring the main
areas of interest for each civilization.

PART IV | THE EGYPTIANS
Egypt is a topic that many like to call their favorite. This topic also holds the fascination of a lot of fanatics who consider themselves experts. I
am not an expert, nor am I qualified to make any formal judgments with confidence, yet. With such a large fascination, a lot of the ‘general’
information in regards to Egypt is already known, a lot of the controversies are already well explored, some a lot more than others, but persistent
mysteries still remain. Part IV will aim to focus on the areas of Egypt’s history that have been shunned by orthodox Egyptologists, areas that
provoke revision and a rethinking.
“Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.”
Chapter I: When the God’s Ruled
Zep Tepi was the Golden Age, when the god’s were said to have ruled the lands of Egypt. These god’s, like most ‘mythological’ figures were
held in high reverence, as they taught the people the secrets of the world; the sciences, the arts, the technologies all necessary for a functional
society and in doing so, laid a foundation block for the spiritual development of the people. So who were these God-Kings who ruled the ‘first
age’? They were the Ennead, the nine prime ‘gods’ of ancient Egyptian mythology. It would be easier to depict this in a flowchart, to emphasize
that this was indeed a lineage.
Ancient historians such as Manetho speak of this time, as well as the time when the ‘demigods’ ruled, following the above Golden Age. Later,
spirits ruled and a series of king’s. It’s really unnecessary to go into detail about the specifics of this lineage, and the truth surrounding the
supposed ‘spirit kings’. The writing’s of Eusebius are usually seen as the direct copies of the works of Manetho and his king list. Let’s
examine the timeline for this kingship:
* The God’s: Ptah and the Great Ennead above ruled for 13,900
* The Demigods: Horus (son of Osiris) and the Shemshu Hor (followers of Horus) ruled for 1,255 years.
* A race of descendants from the God’s then ruled for just under 10,900
After this period of what is no less than 26,000
years the dynastic period began with the legendary pharaoh Menes taking reign and uniting
Egypt in B.C. 3100. The writings of Manethos were considered heathen endeavors against the Catholic church during the times of Champollion; they went
against the conventional history that was described in the Bible. Manetho even went further as to claim that the ancient Egyptian civilization was
upwards of 34, 000 years old. Naturally we cannot trust Manethos’ word alone, even if all his information was derived from the priests at Heliopolis
(the city of the Great Ennead).
Surely there are other sources of information which can support that there was indeed a period of time where the Gods ruled Egypt. Diodorus Sicilus, a
1st century Greek historian also had questioned priests about the history of Egypt. The following is a translation of his original work by C.H.
“At first gods and heroes ruled Egypt for a little less than 18,000 years, the last of the gods to rule being Horus, the son of Isis / Mortals
have been kings of their country, they say, for a little less than 5000 years...”
What of physical evidence, possibly left by the Egyptians themselves in recording the history of their nation and Zep Tepi? The Turin Papyrus
contains what is called the Turin King List which lists all the royal lineages of Egypt, from Zep Tepi (the Golden Age of the Gods), to the dynasties
that followed. The damaged papyrus was found by the famous explorer Drovetti and is thought to date to the time of Ramses II. It is divided into 11
columns and hieroglyphically depicts the following:
- Column 1 — Gods of Ancient Egypt
- Column 2 — Rows 1-10 Spirits and mythical kings (Shemshu Hor, etc.)
- Column 2 — Rows 11-25 (Dynasties 1-2)
- Column 3 — Rows 1-25 (Dynasties 2-5)
… up until the 17th dynasty.
Was there indeed a period in the distant past where these believed to be ‘God’s’ actually ruled the lands? Were these the human Gods that taught
them the knowledge of architecture, agriculture, religion, astrology and even passed on their own language, the hieroglyphs? Could the currently
unaccepted timeframe which puts the origins of the Egyptians prior to 25,000 B.C. serve as an explanation to the sudden expanse of the Egyptian
civilization, fully equipped with a complex set of religious beliefs?
The current conclusion is simple, yet so ignorant. The Turin King List is seen as recorded history, but the ‘age of the God’s’ is placed under
that petty little word, myth. Why?
Chapter II: Call of Osiris
The Egyptian God of the dead is by far one of the most well known Egyptian deities and was worshiped right up until the Christian era in which this
ancient cult was suppressed. He was the father of Horus and was also known by the name Khenti-Amentiu which means ‘Lord of the Westerners’
Now, there is much debate as to whether the ‘west’ is referring to the Underworld itself, or to the infamous founding land of the Egyptian
civilization, the land where the God’s came from. Naturally, with such a powerful figure, one would expect to find some form of monument to his
accomplishments. One does, but one finds what is quiet easily one of the most perplexing buildings in Egypt, alongside the Giza complex itself. It is
called, the Osirieon.

Fig. 2: Osirieon, view #2.
It seems out of place, and besides the hieroglyphs which were inscribed by Seti I, there are no ornaments or depictions whatsoever. Seti I, who’s
temple was built in front of the Osirieon, probably inscribed the outer walls of the Osirieon (which were probably built alongside the construction of
Seti’s temple) to further advance his case for immortality alongside Osiris. One item was found in the entrance of the temple that supports this
theory, besides the architectural differences themselves. A piece of broken pottery was found, with the inscriptions; ‘Seti, serviceable to
