MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON HOME OF THE ANU
MOUNTAINS OF THE MOON - REWENZORI MOUNTAINS*
Our Most Respected brother Historian Dr. Ben's , theory is that the Annu people of the (Mountains of the Moon) bought agriculture, science and culture down the Nile River.
In 9,600 BCE, the Bongo, Kango, Efe, Akka and Twa - the Anu peoples, lived in
the forest at the foot of BABA TIBA (“Mountains of the Moon”) (Mt. Ruwenzori,
east of Lake Kivu, Rwanda). The ANU say that in the beginning there was ELIMA
(supreme being), TA-HU (Sacred Tree) of TA-HU-TI (Moon God) on BABA TIBA
(“Mountains of the Moon”). The Anu gathered fruits, nuts and plants. When the
Anu could not find fruit, nuts, or plants to eat, they hunted the creatures of
the land for meat.The Anu listened to the sounds of the forests and learned to
mimic them, therby learning how to sing from the creatures of the air. With
their photograph aural memory preserving the intrusion of sounds, words and
legends in the most ancient form, virtually unchaged compared to the changes
that have occurred outside the forest, even among literate peoples, their
pronunciations may be the closest to the original.
TA-HATO, the Anubis “dog-faced” baboon was considered the most intelligent of
the land creatures. When the Anu found unknown fruits, nuts and plants, they
gave them to TA-HATO to test for human consumption. The Anu also followed
TA-HATO to the sources of water.
The Anu also watched the Sacred Ibis that appeared from time to time from the
“These Anu [Ethiopians] were agricultural people, raising cattle on a large scale along the Nile, shutting themselves up in walled cities for defensive purposes.
To this people we can attribute without fear of error, the most ancient Egyptian books, The Book of The Dead and the Text of the Pyramids, consequently all the myths of religious teachings.
I would add almost all the philospohical systems then known and still called Egyptian. They evidently knew the crafts necessary for any civilization and were familiar with the tools those trades required. They knew how to use metals . . .
They made the earliest attempts at writing, for the whole Egyptian tradition attributes this art to Thoth, the great Hermes, an Anu like Osiris, who is called Onian in chapter fifteen of The Book of the Dead and in the Texts of the Pyramids.
Certainly the people already knew the principal arts; it left proof of this in the architecture of the tombs at Abydos, especially the tomb of Osiris, and in those sepulchres objects have been found bearing the unmistakeable stamp of their origin - such as carved ivory . . . .
All those cities [Ant, Annu Menti, Aunti, Aunyt-Seni today called Esneh, Erment, Quoch, and Heliopolis] have the characteristic symbol which serves to denote the name Anu”
‘According to Amélineau: An means man [in Diola]. Thus Anu originally may have meant men.’
Anu was also the Sumerian [African] name for the sky or sky god. An being the first cause [man]. The sky god whose wife was Antu in the Babylonian culture and Uras in the Akkadian or Sumerian was also on occasion called Ki. There symbol of authority was the ‘horned cap’ the headdress of heroes [Heru] and gods [mighty men]. His symbol is a sacred shrine surmounted by the divine horned cap (found on Babylonian boundary stones) and his sacred number is sixty. His sacred animal is the "Heavenly bull". Anu was worshipped at six cult centers. Anu is also known as Father and Kings of the Gods.
Who was the leader of those cities? One was called Nimrod, but there were many. The name Nimrod was used like Pharaoh or Nebus and was a Kingly title.
Can Jerusalem and Anu [On] be the same place or two sides of the same coin? Let's look at Khemet to see if any of their kings or Pher-aa/Pharoahs exploits can be tied to Jerusalem.
The capture of Jerusalem/Kadesh by Thutmose III also resolves the formerly unknown source of the name Zion. Zion consists of the components On (Hebrew for the holy city of On/Heliopolis in Egypt) and the Hebrew word Zi (meaning arid place). Literally translated, Zion appropriately becomes "Holy City of the Desert." [House of Messiah. Ahmed Osman].
Jerusalem became a Holy City during the reign of Tutmoses III.
As an adult ruler, Tuthmoses III conducted 17 successful campaigns that served him a position as the most successful Pharaoh ever — in military terms. He extended Egyptian territory and power considerably, into Mesopotamia, Canaan [Megiddo] and Nubia. He fought the Syrians [Assyrians] seeking refuge in Meggido [as the Hebrew King David?]. The conquered territories were put under control of vassal kings and chiefs, who paid taxes to Egypt. He [Tut/David] extended the temple at Karnak, as well as constructing new monuments at Abydos, Aswan, Heliopolis and Memphis. His mummy was said to be found in 1881 at Dayru l-Bahri.
"So David slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David. And the days that David reigned over Israel were 40 years: 7 years reigned he in Hebron, and 33 years reigned he in Jerusalem. Then sat Solomon upon the throne of David his father; and his kingdom was established greatly." 1 Kings 2:10-12. The name David meant beloved.
The sacredness attributed to Jerusalem by the Egyptians initially derived from the transport of the Barque of Amun, a holy shrine carried on poles in much the same manner as the Israelite Ark of the Covenant, to the city by Thutmose III. The shrine was normally kept within the Holy of Holies in the Temple of Amun at Karnak, however Thutmose III had carried it with him into battle. It remained with him when he took up residence in Jerusalem during the prolonged siege of Megiddo.
Amun with feathers--- strong similarity between the 10 commandment tablets on his head!
The Jerusalem Jews were opposed to the Alexandrian [Egypt/Khemet] temple and jealous, because they saw it as a rival temple. When they got their version of the Septuagint [Greek version of the Old Testament Bible], they minutely altered the word for “Sun” (cheres) so that it read “Destruction” (heres) instead. Calling On/Anu the City of Destruction or Desolation instead of the City of the Sun or City of Righteousness. The Sun being the image/icon of the God of Righteousness.
The Septuagint [Greek] version speaks of On/Anu reads “ir-ha-zedek” = “a city of righteousness”, but the altered version reads “a city of destruction”. It is because of this tiny variation between the two versions of the Septuagint that the King James and Authorized versions have a marginal note about the alternative reading. The correct rendering is “City of the Sun”, or “Heliopolis” is City of Righteousness.
In the case of Anu/On they, the Biblical redactors, made the choice of tying idolatry, destruction or desolation to the name of the region to make it and the inhabitants and founders of that religious city, a curse and a shame in history, but why?
To make us believe that everything black is evil and cursed by the Creator and cause us not to question the role of Egypt in Hebrew life before and after the Bible was written.
