THE EDITOR: I would like to respond to the words around BC Pires’s photo in his "Emancipation precipitation" column of August 3. In it he refused to accept that the Norse gods came from Egypt.
A study of the images of ancient deities of both the Old and New Worlds reveal their Ethiopic origin. This is noted by Kenneth RH Mackezie in TA Buckley’s Cities of the Ancient World, p 180. The following reference was extracted from Prof John G Jackson’s book: "Ethiopia and Egypt produced the earliest civilisation in the world and it was indigenous..." – Dr Gerald Massey.
It was the ancient Cushite empire of Ethiopians, which weighty authorities tell us ruled over three continents, and held unbroken sway for 3,000 years.
I humbly suggest Pires visits some of the "ancient" museums online. Da Nang might be a great place to start. He should visit realhistoryww.com as well. Surely, he will get a first-hand appreciation of what the ancient peoples around the world looked like, inclusive of deities/gods.
The Norse gods, therefore, like those of the Greeks, Romans etc, would have come from Ethiopia and/or Egypt, or any Ethiopian civilisation. As a matter of fact, there were never any deities/gods that were not Ethiopian, jet-black people. Established history.
