eorge Washington – When he was born, or when America as a nation had been legally founded, or as we would argue when he took up arms against the British Empire – after which all the others did no longer matter! Mannerheim spoke Swedish with his parents, and served in the Russian military, but when push came to shove, and the civil war in 1917 between the RED communists – favoring aligning with the open border Russian communists – and the WHITE patriotic nationalists – needed his leadership, and his leadership ensured that Finland would be a Sovereign nation.
In the same way, we would argue that the debate about Alexander The Great as a Greek or Macedonian is irrelevant, as when his father Philip 338 BCE with his 18-year-old son Alexander, defeated Athens and Thebes forces forming the Pan-Hellenic Congress, he became HellenianGreek, and once he himself, conquered Persia, Greece became an Empire, based on the same enlightened values as its Persian founder, Cyrus the Great, who had freed the Jewish slaves from the Mesopotamian rulers, and supported them building their temple in Jerusalem.
If you read our two earlier stories about the surprising origin of the first language (PFS) Proto-Finnic-Sanskrit, above the Arctic Circle 26,000 years ago, its peoples arrived 18,000 years ago creating together with the local Dravidians the First Vedic Civilization on the seven islands in the Arabian Sea, and after it’s climate change caused destruction 13,000 years ago, moving as Finnic, Dravidians and their offspring – the first Jews, to Aethiopia to Meroë, Kerma, and Axum, uniting there with the true African black skinned founders, of the first Pharaoh-ruled Egyptian Empire – it all makes sense and we will here show even more in support.
According to the historian Pausanias and the contemporary Panan Chronicle records for the 321-320 BC period, Ptolemy, one of Alexander’s generals, initially buried him in Memphis, Egypt.
Although the more southern Meroë, Kerma, and Axum had been earlier the true roots of the Egyptian Pharaoh Kingdom, the changing of the climate taking the lush rainforest of 13,000 years ago towards today’s desert, made Memphis the most prominent city in the time of the reign of Alexander and seems plausible that respect for him would have placed him there.
There have been discovered many skulls as evidence from 15,000 years ago of Early Ethiopians having a presence even in South America in Ecuador, Chile, and in Peru, at a time when Aksum (Axum), Meroë, and Kerma all were still blossoming, before the desert started impacting there.
In the late 4th or early 3rd century BC during the early Ptolemaic dynasty, Alexander’s body was then transferred from Memphis to Alexandria, where his sarcophagus was placed in the Serapeum complex, built by Pharaoh Nectanbo II. It has not however been proven to contain any genome determined as him.
The following conclusions have however later been reached regarding the genomes of the Greeks and the Macedonians.
Macedonians belong to the Mediterranean substratum, which originated 18,000 years ago, when Finnic Arctic people, and Grimaldian African people met, in the Basque region, south of the frozen north that was still ice covered.
Basques, and other North Africans, Italians, French, Cretans, Lebanese, Turks (Anatolians), Armenians, and Iranians, belong to this genome – but Macedonians are NOT related to the geographically close Greeks – who do not belong to this Mediterranean substratum
Greeks are found to have a substantial relatedness to sub-Saharan (Ethiopian) people, which separates them from other Mediterranean groups.
Both Greeks and Ethiopians share quasi-specific DRB1 alleles (such as *0305, *0307, *0411, *0413, *0416, *0417, *0420, *1110, *1112, *1304, and *1310).
Genetic distances are closer between Greeks and Ethiopian/sub-Saharan groups than to any Mediterranean group and finally Greeks cluster with Ethiopians/sub-Saharans in both neighbor-joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses.
This supports that Greeks evolved from AethiopiansKush founders, of the Egyptian Pharaoh Empire, later 13,000 years ago – than the other group 18,000 years ago.
Additional support for this was the discovery of the Mota Ethiopian man.
His body was found face-down in Mota cave, which is situated in the highlands in the southern part of the country. The cool, dry conditions in the cave preserved his DNA, and scientists extracted a sample from the petrous bone at the base of his skull.
The resulting sequence is the first nuclear genome from an ancient African, according to a report published in a known Science journal.
Radiocarbon dating revealed that the bone was 4,500 years old. That meant Mota (as the researchers called him) lived before Eurasians returned to the African continent, and thus the Greek connection to Ethiopia, must have been Greeks evolving there, bringing their wisdom from Aethiopiato Greece, not the other way around.
The First Greeks we’ve been told were two major groups of people, the Minoans, and the Mycenaeans, that were the first to populate the Greek peninsula. Not much is known about either of these groups because they did not leave an abundance of written or physical evidence to provide clues about their civilization, but their origin from Aethiopia explains this, as they were explorers who stayed, like otherwise the much later Vikings in North America, who only stayed for a while, but left behind proof of them being there.
We know the Ancient Greeks saw Ethiopia and Egypt as the birthplace of civilization. They saw themselves as merely building on the civilization they received from Egypt.
It was not even just a case of civilization starting in Egypt and slowly spreading around the Mediterranean: most of the top Greek minds went directly to Egypt itself to study, people like Solon, Thales, Plato, Lycurgus, and Pythagoras. Later when Alexander conquered the known world, it was Egypt that became the center of Greek thought and science.
As additional support we have the thorough research of Greek philosophy having its foundations in Africa, making it evident, that such origin of the Greeks, is consistent with the body of evidence to support the shown dependence of what is known as Greek philosophy, with the entire corpus of Ancient Egypt and it’s African traditions.
The extent of such a relationship, which is itself consequent on the nature of the tradition Egypt was in possession of is evident.
By the fact of such tradition is constituting a philosophy, then it would follow as a matter of consequence that Egypt is the unacknowledged progenitor of the philosophical enterprise, that the Greeks built upon and expanded.
Hegel (quoted in Law 1976) stresses the obligation of historians to get their “facts” right, despite his disloyalty with regard to obeying this injunction (Law 1976, 103– 132). In keeping with this precept it is without a doubt that, on the issue of African originality, Africa is to be credited with the wonder of Ancient Egyptian philosophy.
This, in turn, will chiefly aid scientists in reconstructing an African philosophy to allow for development in Africa amidst all the present and past socio-political challenges, a true reclaiming of the pride of Africa, as not only the cradle of humanity but also as an important part of our world civilization.
Nonetheless, irrespective of this preceding view, one should not be led to indignantly and blindly deny the equally praiseworthy mark of the Greek genius, for, despite the influence of an “Egyptian philosophy” on the spontaneous birth of philosophy in Europe in the Greek civilization, the subsequent growth of the enterprise was built largely upon the particular culture characteristic of Europe.
In conclusion, therefore, it is manifest that Greek philosophy can be reliably traced to African influences, plausibly as first as Phoenicians, then Myceanians and Minoans, before Greeks.
This understanding of the origins of Greek philosophy can orient one to realize the importance of Africa in the development of philosophical thinking and the consequent place of African philosophy on a global scale.
Africa has never been alien to philosophical thinking and the rigors of the philosophical spirit, like different thinkers, have been so harsh in categorizing Africa.
Greek philosophy, however, does not have to justify its use by Western chauvinists to sport the notion of an Africa without a philosophy.
Africa has seen the growth of original philosophical ideas and is in no way alien to the philosophical spirit.
A banal proof of this lies in the theory that democracy, in its primitive form, seemed to have emerged in the Indus Valley as well as in Africa, where power was in the hands of free male citizens, largely similar to the new-age “government of the people, by the people and for the people.
Both the Vedic civilization and the AEthiopiancivilizations were a blend of different cultures and peoples and would display also prominent women like Sheeba and Cleopatra as part of the enlightened elite.
Democracy and property rights that took their conceptual clarity in Greek philosophizing, had already been in practice, in various forms, in Mesopotamia and India.
As such, the growth and development of philosophic attitudes do not just happen in a vacuum; they are spurred on by influences from other cultural niches.
In this stead, Africa has something to offer. It has the wealth of a vast cultural and philosophical richness that can furnish us with tools to aid and hasten philosophical development and the emancipation of the African continent from the shackles of post-colonial trauma
If you have ever doubted the Greek origin of Western Philosophy or wondered about the irony that the Greek government even persecuted Socrates and Plato for corrupting the youth? This volume shows that African priest-scholars of the Egyptian Mystery System originated philosophy; that Thales, Pythagoras, Plato, and Aristotle lived in Africa and studied under these priests.
Some Greek historians: Plutarch, Diogenes Laertius, Herodotus, Plato, Aristotle; and modern writers: William Stace, Alfred Benn, and James Breasted – all testify to Greeks’ studentship in Egypt.
Citing Egyptian texts, the author reveals that the doctrines of Greek philosophers have their prototypes in earlier Egyptian philosophy.
However, in their determination to maintain racial and intellectual superiority over Africans, Western rulers, and their historians, since the beginning of colonization, subverted history by attributing the origin of philosophy to the Greeks.
The time calls for the restoration of the true_historyby stimulating more research, exposure, and publicity – which is our quest in search of the true_history of humankind.
In our next and fourth story we shall follow the Finnic people who in Karelia after descending south from above the Arctic circle spoke Proto-Finnic-Sanskrit 19,000 years ago, then 12,000 years ago speaking Proto-Finnic-Uralic – would spread that language fsr East to the Ural Mountains and South to today’s Hungary – in a time before Scandinavia, Vikings, and Russia existed.
