42 Principles of Maat 2000 years before Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments, eight of them at least, were taken from the Egyptian Principles of Ma’at written at least 2000 years earlier.

180px-maatsvg.png Written at least 2,000 years before the Ten Commandments of Moses, the 42 Principles of Ma’at are one of Africa’s, and the world’s, oldest sources of moral and spiritual instruction. Ma’at, the Ancient Egyptian divine Principle of Truth, Justice, and Righteousness, is the foundation of natural and social order and unity. Ancient Africans developed a humane system of thought and conduct which has been recorded in volumes of African wisdom literature, such as, these declarations from the Book of Coming Forth By Day (the so-called Book of the Dead), The Teachings of Ptah-Hotep, the writings of Ani, Amenemope, Merikare, and others.

One aspect of ancient Egyptian funerary literature which often is mistaken for a codified ethic of Ma’at is Chapter 125 of the Book of the Dead, often called the 42 Declarations of Purity or the Negative Confession. These declarations varied somewhat from tomb to tomb, and so can not be considered a canonical definition of Ma’at. Rather, they appear to express each tomb owner’s individual conception of Ma’at, as well as working as a magical absolution (misdeeds or mistakes made by the tomb owner in life could be declared as not having been done, and through the power of the written word, wipe that particular misdeed from the afterlife record of the deceased).

Many of the lines are similar, however, and they can help to give the student a “flavor” for the sorts of things which Ma’at governed—essentially everything from the most formal to the most mundane aspect of life.

Many versions are given on-line, unfortunately seldom do they note the tomb from which they came or, whether they are a collection from various different tombs. – wiki

Here is one collection to give you the general idea:

File:Moses bas-relief in the U.S. House of Representatives chamber.jpg

Moses marble bas-relief, one of 23 reliefs of great historical lawgivers in the chamber of the U.S. House of Representatives in the United States Capitol. Sculpted by Jean de Marco in 1950. Diameter 28 inches. He’s very pale and has a beard.

I have not done iniquity.
I have not robbed with violence.
I have not stolen.
I have not made any to suffer pain.
I have not defrauded offerings.
I have done no murder nor bid anyone to slay on my behalf.
I have not trimmed the measure.
I have not spoken lies I have not robbed God.
I have not caused the shedding of tears.
I have not dealt deceitfully.
I have not acted guilefully.
I have not laid waste to the land.
I have not set my lips against anyone.
I have not been angry or wrathful without a just cause.
I have not lusted nor defiled the wife of any man.
I have not polluted myself.
I have not caused terror.
I have not done that which is abominable.
I have not multiplied words exceedingly.
I have never uttered fiery words.
I have not judged hastily.
I have not transgressed nor have I vexed or angered God.
I have not stopped my ears against the words of Right and Truth .
I have not burned with rage.
I have not worked grief.
I have not acted with insolence.
I have not avenged myself.
I have not stirred up strife.
I have not been an eavesdropper.
I have not wronged the people
I have done no harm nor have I done evil
I have not worked treason.
I have never fouled the water.
I have not spoken scornfully.
I have never cursed God.
I have not behaved with arrogance.
I have not envied or craved for that which belongs to another.
I have not filched food from the mouth of the infant.
I have done no hurt unto man, nor wrought harm unto beasts.
I have never magnified my condition beyond what was fitting.

Here is a different translation showing how they correlate with the 10 commandments. Moses, if he existed, (there is no undisputed historical/archaeological evidence that he did), was an Egyptian. According to stories, he was adopted by an Egyptian royal family. If that were true he would have been familiar with these principles. If there was no historical Moses, then others most likely borrowed a few if the Principles of Maat when composing the Ten Commandments.

I.  Thou shalt not kill, nor bid anyone kill.
II.  Thou shalt not commit adultery or rape.
III. Thou shalt not avenge thyself nor burn with rage.
IV. Thou shalt not cause terror.
V. Thou shalt not assault anyone nor cause anyone pain.

X. Thou shalt not steal nor take that which does not belong to you.
XI. Thou shalt not take more than thy fair share of food.
XII. Thou shalt not damage the crops, the fields, or the trees.
XIII. Thou shalt not deprive anyone of what is rightfully theirs.
XIV. Thou shalt not bear false witness, nor support false allegations.
XV. Thou shalt not lie, nor speak falsely to the hurt of another.
XVI. Thou shalt not use fiery words nor stir up any strife.
XVII. Thou shalt not speak or act deceitfully to the hurt of another.
XVIII. Thou shalt not speak scornfully against others.
XIX. Thou shalt not eavesdrop.

      First of all, do you people know not that those of old reverence themselves as “Gods” “Goddesses”? Every Law they set was inspired by self and not by The Most High. The word “God” in the past reference one who was in control, leader, or one of authority which means if Obama or Beyounce was back then he would be a “GOD/Goddesses”. Thank the Most HIgh he has given me revelations that go far beyond what so many of you simple people understand. You all would worship anything and everything except for the right thing. That’s why the world is in chaos today. You don’t need a “God”, “Goddess” or the spirits of old to reach the father. If you search deep within yourself with true love for the creator and put away foolish traditions he would find you. You wouldn’t have to go whoring around wiht the “Book of the Dead”, King James Bible or other idolatry to reach The Most HIgh…….

        Ahabyah Of’Zion, maybe you should check on your reading comprehension; nowhere does this piece tells us that this is an order of worship, nor that it comes from a ‘God’ what are you smoking/or, drinking on then? and it never included the kjv bible book, where did that come from? this only explains that these were the “PERSONAL ADMISSIONS OF PURITY” of the Afrikan Kings, or Queens who had sovereignty over people, and that they had enough sense to understand ‘reciprocity’ that is, what you put out, or give is what you get back. They used ‘common sense’ while managing a nation of people. So, what in the heck are you talking about? or do you even know? they also respected the fact that there is a universal spirit bigger than us all; as matter of fact its known as the “ALL” connection to Life. which the Afrikan had the utmost relation of understanding for, and everything else is of the manifestation of the “ALL” energies, and forces, thats normally made of atoms = protons, neutrons, and electrons. its science dear, something else the Afrikan nation has contributed to the world. you should really learn about the Afrikan history to know what you are talking about, and you put down that kjv. Paying great homage to the Ancestors, hotep.

        Ahabyaho’zion, and the ‘Book Of The Dead’ is the title that the europeans named changing the true Book’s name the “Coming Forth By Day, and by Night” in 1835, because of their misunderstanding, as usual..and its a book that documents all of the papyrus found by archaeologist on the walls of stone written by the ancient Afrikan Kings, and Queens. You will learn this if you do the research that its all kept in the British, and Cairo Museums, history, and artifacts…hotep.

Now u say u of search deep within yourself to find him,what are u practically saying,obviously God is in you,so Wat those dat make u?

        Hm. You pretty much just acknowledged that religion is based on the evolution of a very human idea … in this case, the patriarchical relationship with a leadership caste of some sort. You have no basis to dismiss this much-older idea in favor of your slightly-newer, but conceptually identical, tradition. Congratulations … welcome to the world of atheism. We meet Tuesdays down at the pub. Bring your own darts.

        “First of all, do you people know not that those of old reverence themselves as ‘Gods’ ‘Goddesses’? Every Law they set was inspired by self and not by The Most High.”

        You’re contradicting yourself. You correctly acknowledge that most religions and faith are really nothing more than social customs that began as a combination of ancestor and leader worship, and then imply this idea applies to every religion except yours.

        You have no reason to claim your religion, out of the hundreds (perhaps thousands) through all of human history happens to be the exception.

        Ahabyah Of Zion.. I appreciate your statement..

        I believe God spoke in BCE, AD and today to heal a weary land and confused people. The Spirit of Christ ( the anointing – the function of God ) reveals all things within us, by way of the Holy Spirit. Studying to show ourselves approved, rightly dividing Holy Scripture & developing spiritual understanding is imperative. The Romans, Greeks and councils of that time manipulated the people and churches in many ways. The holy men of God Almighty were lead by the spirit of Christ. They witnessed the practices of those men and revealed through the Holy Scriptures what we must do today to maintain our salvation. We know the power of God, we bear witness to the Gifts & Fruits of the Holy Spirit when ( WE ) worship in Spirit and in Truth..
        2 Tim 4:1-5 lines up with 2 Pet 2:1-3 confirmed in Isa 1:1-20 & Jer 5:1-31.. Philip 3 & Heb 12:1-15 reveals what we must do… Grace & Peace be unto you..

Are you 100% sure that you that you worship the right thing? Of course you are, most fanatics are convinced they are 100% sure!

        It’s funny how Christians associate sin with some sort of sexual perversion: “You wouldn’t have to go whoring around wiht the “Book of the Dead”.” Did you know that the Bible refers to us as Gods in Psalm 82:6-8, John 10:34. Even the devil knew we was Gods Genesis 3:5. This was because of this scripture: Genesis 1:26. If you would like to learn more or feel some sort of way about this then email me keph999@gmail.com

        You have been so brainwashed. Christianity was not a belief system of our original home land. Christianity was forced upon our ancestors during slavery and used to justify our enslavement. If you really research the history of Christianity you will find that the words in that Bible were altered and books were deleted by the Council of Nicea. Google Constantine. Also open your eyes, mind and hear to see that the story of Jesus was told many many years before Jesus even came on the sceenin ancient Kemet which is referee to Egypt now. Africans were the first people on this earth. Everything originates from that land. African Americans have been so far removed from our truth and history and it was by design. Everything that orginated in the Mother Land has been stolen and credit has been given to those of European descent. Even Jesus is depicted as white when we know that isn’t even a possibility. While you are reading about Constantine, you will learn that the first images of Jesus were of a black man and the artist was told to make Jesus look like his son…a white man.

        No Queen ,ahabyah of Zion they said they was gods , and goddesses because they knew who created them in his image we are a product of our father and to understand the laws of maat is to learn self first respect self and everything will follow with nature and the rest of his creations if you don’t love self because God is within self then how can you love anything else I mean once you find out who were they ancestors were all the way back frm noah & his kids Shem , Ham Japheth and who they kids like Ham he father Cush , Mizriam, Put , & Cannan ok Miziriam is the acient name for Egyptians so if they praise the rong God why did God save their family from the flood why did God stated over and over he is the God of egypt from out of egypt , Hosa 13:3-4 then again Hosa 12:9 then you will know that they corrupted them ppl beliefs with their words they gave praise to all of his creations Amen or Amen Ra is is the bible also as one of his faithful true witness of his creations rev 13:4

        bravo, the problem has always been this obsession with worshiping dead people and everything under the sun and even the sun itself. The most high said it plain and simple….worship the creator not creation. So you can throw allah, jesus, judiaism hotep, buddah beelzabub and the whole lot of them in the trash where they belong,living on top and calling the shots is what the torah teaches. Not living in servitude and hoping aliens come down and get rid of the crying broke,sorry , looking out for self pretending to look out for others individuals running this world now.. such a disgrace..

        Greetings Lorraine Voss… All must research the rich history of the Mother Land, and deep truth that has been changed, and/or hidden. Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan and Dr. John Henrik Clark reveal historical truth we must acknowledge. There will always be misunderstanding due to man made religion & doctrinal tradition. The 42 Principles reveal how we should walk and treat one another. The multiple bibles written by worldly men will never change historical truth. Our obligation is to study, gain understanding and reveal / teach all things in Spirit and in truth, with a pure heart.. The 42 Principles reveal if historical truth is presented in the right way, the non believer, racist, and ignorant will be edified…

        Grace & Peace be unto you…

      Brothers it is almost of a certainty that a man named Yeshua did exist.The name Yeshua was a common name of his time.everyone from josephus to tacitus Pliny the younger and others speak of him.Pilate was thought to be a myth himself until recently artifacts were found giving evidence to his existence.Caiaphus the high priest was thought to be a myth until his grave was recently found.We should respect Yeshua in many ways for he didn’t advocate slavery in his own mission statement he said he has come to plant at liberty the captive.to uplift the oppressed.it is said when the authorities attempted to kill him that he hid out in egypt.you can’t hide in a place where you don’t look like the inhabitants.it is said he had hair like sheep’s wool and feet like burnished brass.the charge for which he was killed was insurrection.he was believed to be starting a revolution against Rome.his best friend set him up.sounds black to me.we know that our egyptian society predates the bible and provided the world with its first civilization and culture tho but to try and rub this man out of history all together goes against all the historical facts.

        Any religion which end’s the prayer with Amen, reveals its origins. its very roots are ancient Egyptian. Amen Heru, Amen Ra, Amen Ma’at. The prayer always ended with the with the name of the Divine. That tradition changed when Jewish law forbid believers to verbalize the name of God. So it became Amen (pause).

      These 42 principles are way less difficult than the 613 commandments in the bible that also deal with how to treat slaves, women etc…I’m only just now getting into Egyptian ideas and this is the closest I’ve seen that have matched my ideas as a child. God and Goddess. The God of the bible is schizophrenic, bi-polar and is a sexist and racist.

      I don’t mean to be rude, but this is not about black or white. This is a post about the history of theological beliefs. Moses was indeed adopted by the Egyptian royals and would clearly have known the laws of Goddess Ma’at. He would have used that knowledge to convert his followers. You see, people don’t always follow a completely new idea. Often there has to be some form of familiarity to convince people to a new way of thinking. Moses did that. Christians later did that to Pagans…etc. It’s actually very political. He wanted an uprising. He wanted people to follow him. He needed to convince them. How better than to preach something they already knew? So this has NOTHING to do with white or black and I find it so infuriating that someone always makes a racist remark. It’s politics. It’s theology. But this is not black against white or vice versa.

      Thank you brother or sister, the world does not want to give the Afrikans the credit they deserve. All these religions have done nothing but divide and rule, murder and destroy. Afrika lost her holiness because of her hospitality. Invaders came and they were welcomed with open hands. They destroyed what held Afrika together and introduced wickedness called religion which they made up. Since then, Afrika has not been in peace and may never be in peace. Afrika was better off with the law of Maat. Afrika needs to be free from man made religion.

      Interpreting the Negative Confessions as”commandments of Maat” misses the whole original point by a mile. The original concept was that if these confessions are in your heart and come from there, you are a pure person, therefore you can go on. The Ten Commandments, on the other hand, tells you what you should and shouldn’t do, otherwise you will be punished. If you need fear of punishment to keep you from the things in the negative confessions, you are in no way fit to go on to Amenti.

      Baruch Ha Shem Yah-ho-vah! “Blessed be the Name of Yah-ho-vah!” Thank you for that knowledge sister. I have a brother who is Kemetic and I am a Hebrew. He sent me to this website because his daughter was just born and he named her Ma’at. So now I know what Ma’at is. After reading all of these posts from other Egyptian centered people it’s good to hear from one of my people.

      The “New Covenant” spoken of by our Christian brothers and sisters is a “Re-newed” Covenant for the House of Israel and the House of Judah (Hebrews 8). There are twelve gates to the Holy City to come down from Heaven from which Yah-ho-vah will reign over the entire universe: one gate for each of the 12 tribes! It is in this Hebrew context that our knowledge must be disseminated to our brothers and sisters. Spread the word to muslims, Kemetics, pagans, etc. The Elohim of Yisrael is the Creator of the Universe! Of a surety Egypt has gods whom were worshipped by Africans and still are, and perhaps they impart some knowledge to them. But Yah-ho-vah is the God of gods!

      Devarim (Deuteronomy) 10:17
      Yah-ho-shua (Joshua) 22:22
      Psalms 136:2

      He has power to execute judgment over and punish the gods of Egypt (Shemot or Exodus 12:12 and Devarim 33:4) which means that these beings are fallible and below the Creator of the Universe, Adonai Yah-ho-vah!

      Our fathers Avra-am, Yitzhak, and Yisrael were black men of a certainty just like the ancient Egyptians. As the brothers stated on this page, our prophet Moshe was adopted by the royal family of Egypt so he had to look like them, were educated by them, and at some time may have worshipped like them. But Moshe and our forefathers possessed a higher calling than did the Egyptians who worshipped “gods” which translates to “watchers” or “watchmen”. These beings are an enigma for us speakers of English because we have no accurate name for them and use the small “g” term “gods”. Remember Yah-ho-vah made Moshe a “god” over pharoah (Shemot 7:1)

      So should we follow the wisdom of these people who worshipped “gods” or should we follow the wisdom given to us by the Creator of the Universe in the Torah and the Tanach?

        Congratulations to Ma’at! May she live a long and happy life. Yes, I believe it is clear that The Commandments are taken from Ma’at.

        Much is hidden in plain sight in our shared history. It is scattered between religions and cultures.

        The watchmen are not, after all, so mysterious, I offer. The ancient Egyptians watched them with architecture. As the ancients watched over their sheep day and night, they noticed something in the night sky seemed to be watching them, too. Perhaps also protecting them, as they protected their sheep. The gods were wanders, watchers, and messengers at different times in different cultures. They were also called arch angels because in the arch of the sky (the heavens), they wandered with respect to the rest of the regular moving stars. Angelos in Greek means messenger. Mercury was the winged messenger, the fastest of the gods. Indeed the planet mercury, being the closest planet to the sun, moves the fastest compared to the background of the stars (aka, the heavens). Yes, the watchmen, the angels, they are the same thing. They are REAL! People saw them and you can too. They were mysterious to the ancients, but we know them much better today. Our government has made contact with them. We are currently probing one of them with a remote controlled mechanical device.

        They are known to us today… As planets.

        When the bible and other ancient books were written, everyone knew they were up there, but no one really knew why some points of light in the night sky behaved differently. Not knowing is something many humans then (and now) find disgraceful and embarrassing, so … they made up a bunch of stories which were told and retold verbally.

        Eventually some were written down. People prayed to the planets, worshiped them, even sacrificed animals and other humans to them. The more they invested in their stories of the gods, the more important it became … to kill anyone who thought their ideas were wrong. Over thousands of years the stories merged and morphed and divided and terms that originally referred to something concrete ( certain points of light in the sky) became abstract and mysterious.

        Yes, celebrate the Egyptian point of view, the contribution to our rich history of discovery. Also celebrate the Hebrew, the Greek, the Roman, the Iranian, the Persian, the Italian, these and many others have built our current world.

        You should to pick up this book: The Moses Mystery: The Egyptian Origins of the Jewish People

        Where is the historical evidence for ancient Israel’s Exodus from Egypt?

        Sure to cause controversy in both academic and religious circles, The Moses Mystery examines the troubling question of why ancient Israel has no archaeological or documentary presence prior to and just after the Exodus from Egypt and challenges the conventional wisdom on the origins of the pre-Exodus Bible stories.

        Although the bible says that Israel’s formative history took place in ancient Egypt, biblical scholars and Egyptologists have steadfastly refused to explore the role of Egyptian history and literature on the origins of Jewish religion. Greenberg attempts to set the record straight. Marshaling an astounding amount of research in the fields of biblical archaeology and Egyptian history, literature, and mythology, Greenberg shows that the first Israelites were native Egyptians and that the history of Israel before the Exodus is based almost entirely on Egyptian mythology.

        Some of the many intriguing revelations in The Moses Mystery include

        ● The Twelve Tribes of Israel never existed.
        ● Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob were characters from Egyptian mythology. The biblical story of Jacob and Esau, for example, draws together several myths about the Egyptian gods Horus and Set (the feuding twin brothers who fought even in their mother’s womb) and weaves them into a story about biblical patriarchs.
        ● The first Israelites were Egyptians, followers of Pharaoh Akhenaten, whose attempts to introduce monotheism into Egypt engendered rage among the religious establishment.
        ● Moses served as chief priest in Akhenaten’s cult and, after Akhenaten’s death, had to flee Egypt to avoid execution.
        ● Pharaoh Horemheb waged a bitter campaign to eradicate all vestiges of Akhenaten’s heresy, eliminating the evidence stone by stone and word by word. As a result, Akhenaten remained lost to history until nineteenth-century Egyptologists discovered the ruins of his capital city.
        ● When Horemheb died, Moses returned to Egypt, united his followers with other enemies of Egypt, and attempted to seize the throne from Ramesses I. The coup failed, but to avoid a civil war Moses and his allies were allowed safe passage out of Egypt. This was the real Exodus.
        ● After entering Canaan, the Egyptian followers of Moses formed military alliances with local Canaanite kings and with some of the recently arrived Greek invaders known as the Sea Peoples. This non tribal alliance of small kingdoms and city-states became biblical Israel.

        Lastly, Before there was Yah-ho-vah, before there was Allah, before there was any other God, There was Amen-Ra. He was there at the birth of all other gods. There was no God before him. All Praise Is Due to Amen-Ra the most high.

    XXX. Thou shalt not steal from God

    Does that mean it is possible to steal from God, that is, to take something from God without his awareness and possibly even get away with it? Wow! (Even if it’s not omniscient God of the Judeo-Christian tradition, it’s still quite a feat.) And, how we limit what we can possibly do. Things like healing the sick, raising the dead, levitation, walking on water … – mere child’s play in comparison.

    But, of course, it might refer to pride, thinking we are God-like. But, that’s no big deal. Most of us do that on a regular basis anyway …… unfortunately.

      I guess stealing from God is like taking credit for something that we have not done. For example, you have been blessed with a certain gift which God has given you, and you claim credit for this having this gift.

        The same idea works in a godless deterministic world where consciousness is an illusion. No one can take credit for anything when there is no free will. We do what we must. If you steal from God, it was “God’s will” that you do so. It can not be otherwise. I must go to the gym now. I will steal muscle soreness from God.

    The thing everyone seems to forget is that for the most part, all religions preach the same things because they steal from each other. There are political motivations involved everytime a new religion is started or an old religion is overthrown. People didn’t just say “Oh, God chose me to tell you about him and to tell you to have a good day. bye bye.” No. They created uprisings, had rebellions, and overthrew governments. They mixed beliefs to appease the overthrown and then created new ideas because it was in their best interest. It has nothing to do with race. The ancient Egyptian religion did not at any time say that their race was better than anyone else’s. They did not run to other countries trying to convert them. No, they knew their beliefs. They knew their Gods. They also knew that they were judged individually based on their own life, not anyone else’s. I myself am Kemetic Orthodox. Am I of African descent? Not in the least, I’m as white as a white girl can get. However, I don’t go around telling people to worship my way. It’s not my place to judge. It’s not anyone’s place to judge, remember? Are the commandments based on the confessions of Ma’at. Absolutely. Moses wanted an uprising, he had political motivation, and he needed a reason and some basis of familiar ground to convince the masses. Brilliant political strategy. But that’s all it was. Entire religions are built on political strategy. Empires are destroyed in the name of God. They are also created in the same name. Funny how that works, isn’t it? But nobody ever remembers that.

      You are dead on sister…except where we all get caught up. Black and white are not skin tones. They are actually dividing tools that establish status. White emplies that you are a sovereign, noble, or national of a land. Black implies that you are dead or a object of servatude (sub-human). We are all connected and all are specific to our climate. Blockage of the tymus gland is really the only difference due to the fact that it regulates a lot of our emotions and thoughts. We have to get on the right track by eating better, and being free to meditate without interruption in a non-hostile environment. We have to cleanse our bodies and minds of all the toxans. Peace

    To those who don’t understand why these things become a black or white thing. The answer… well black people go to this place of anger because, why is this not in the history books or places where people of the world can see we not just people creating gangs OR DUNKING BALLS. Its funny to me that when it comes to any other race they get their credit but us we have to fly around the internet or hear from elders to find truth whyyyyyyyyyyyy…. Give us our credit for the history thats been taking then maybe just maybe the separation can start to CHANGE ..GET IT CHANGE !!!!!!! Marcus Garvey ,Fredrick Douglas, Book t Washington, and W.e.b Dubois These were all great black man thats been written out of the history books of the 19 and 20 century, One worked with President Lincoln(civil war) one start a college(Tuskegee University) one went to Harvard Unversity(Phd) all started news papers read all over the world..That is why it hasn’t stopped, because we been removed. and we are still being removed today…RACISMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Rock music yet another thing stolen given credit to Elvis even though all of his hits were written by Otis Blackwell a black man. Chuck Berry invented rock. This same credit stealing oppression happen towards women, blacks and gypsies on a grand scale. Notice how little women are mentioned towards their scientific achievements and some mention after many years they die? Giving credit where credit is due.

      Same thing has happened with gypsies. Everywhere they’ve traveled they get persecuted, aren’t allowed to work have their dance moves passed off as that land’s “traditional dance” have their music style stolen with new labels like Flamenco and the Irish Jig no credit for gypsies.

      There is even an oil that may have helped with the black plague which they called “Thieves Oil” and painted gypsies once again as low life thugs. Still to this day gypsies are struggling and living in poverty. People can kill them but if a gypsy fights back, they are thrown in prison. Their children told to go to special education school even though they aren’t special ed just for being a brown skinned gypsy.

      Irish travelers passing the original gypsies lifestyle off as their own with their own twisted up way of life for media jerks to hone in on and pretend gypsies are caucasian.

    No one understands the Source of all life, so the best and only thing that we can do is to go within and become one with ourselves. That is the place where we meet our higher power, that is the only place that we meet ourselves as god. When we serve man, we are serving ourselves. There is nothing outside of self, so to be one with life and to love all of life unconditionally is true freedom and everlasting peace

    Lol..the sad thing is the Ma’at comes from Egypt but there were other cultures in Africa. The ancient kingdom of Cush existed before so called Egypt. How do all of us descend from Egypt is beyond me. It is evident that as mankind grew..we were spread out & made different traditions & beliefs. ..not every person over were descendants of kings & queens. That’s pure ignorance. The Kemetians has similarities to the Sumerians whom were the first civilizations. People never focus on that but they constantly trying disprove the Bible.

      As Bishop Desmond Tutu said about South Africa “When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said ‘Let us pray.’ We closed our eyes. When we opened them, we had the Bible and they had the land.” Christians do that wherever they go, North and South America, Africa. check missionaries in Papua-New Guinea, the place is lousy with them, the worst kind…evangelicals and it has destroyed the local culture. The missionaries bribe the people with blankets and trinkets to lose their culture and frighten them with their miserable god.

      I’m just learning about Ma’at and the Egyptian gods and goddess and the African gods and goddesses. Very interesting. Christians claim there can be no morals without their god. The Egyptians had a moral code 2000 years before Moses supposedly got the 10 commandments from god, but we know better now. It appears that the 42 Principles of Ma’at are still alive and well today. Don’t believe Moses existed or that the Jews were ever in Egypt and they never wandered 40 years in the desert. There is no evidence anywhere that any of it took. These are the myths that Jews and christians believe and it’s ruining the world, with some help from islam.

    Love this con. This is the time where science,archeology and religion clashes to discern the truth. We must foster it. ( I believe that religion – Christianity- is the finest conquering tool the Europeans used to subjugate natives,for to this day ,because of it- Bible-peoples,if not nations, are still subjected. An interesting read is a work by Voltaire-The bible la explique .is it not unusual that archeologist could find ancient Egypt civilization- some 6000yrs old ,and very little of biblical times ? ). So for the benefit of the human race this coversation must continue to infinity; likewise it should be more prevalent.

    You shall use the name of the Lord your God in only love.

    You shall remember to keep your day rest and holy.

    You shall respect your father and mother as you have before respect your fake friends.

    You shall love all specie of the earth and in the earth; do not be an ignorant.

    You shall not fool the power of lust.

    You shall share that is yours to give..

    You shall bear true witness against your corruption.

    You shall destroy your envy; not let envy destroy your goodness.

    What ignorant fools one must be to think his religion is right,, Your religion usually depends on where you’re born and when, If history tells us anything times will change and for those above that think that the beginning of religion was with the romans and the fake Jesus Christ, Do some research on the Nubians and Sumerians culture and their religion, You can clearly see Christianity was plagiarized from previous cultures.

    Read scripture, study the original language……the commandments of Yahweh were there long before Moshe (Moses). He tell is that Abraham followed Yahweh’s commandments, statutes and ordinances. They were written down at Mt. Sinai, as their Ketubah with the Israelites. These were passed down generation to generation through Adam. Thus, were well before they appeared in Egypt.
