xaxaxaxaxax. kolomental oyibo wants us to believe his father's lies over my brothers and sisters truth. does that make sense. Yet the only thing you can point to is his father's books which include not the original bible.

You have gone over to the other tread to deceive again, Jesus was black, you said true, he was not european(white) but brown. I knew immidiately that you have inferiority issues.

Black people filled the whole earth before yt(white) came along. Don't buy into the lie that Black people were only in Africa, and yt etc discovered the rest of the world.
Not true.
We had 12 separate countries spread over the whole earth, from Asia to Africa to the Americas and Europe.

Yes, even Europe. There was a time when the climate there was not icy cold as it is today. Black people lived there and left the same type of monuments everywhere they lived. Take a look at the monuments of Egypt which- it is finally admitted, were built by Black people, after many centuries of reluctance. (This reluctance persisted for centuries despite the fact that Herodotus, the father of Caucasian history, stated very clearly 2,500 years ago that the ancient Egyptians were nappy hair midnight-skin Black people. And how did he know? He went there while Black people were still living there and ruling their own country. In those days, Egypt was to the whole world what America is today. Everybody who was anybody went there for learning, culture, fortune and fame, just as people today come to America from all over the world.

It was taken for granted then, just as it is today among whites, that Black people were the most advanced people on earth. Herodotus says so without shame. Whites in those days were still in the infancy of developing their sense of superiority, which is now fully mature, albeit completely false.) Take a look at the monuments of ancient Egypt as an example of what our people built. Then search all over the world for similar monuments, and you'll find them on every continent. If you want to find where Americans have been in the world, don't you look for McDonalds, Kentucky Fried and Ford automobiles? Those are yt's modern monuments that he leaves behind everywhere he goes.

Black people left behind much more enduring monuments everywhere they lived. When you see megalithic stone structures so large that white people today look at them and say, "How did they do that?", know without doubt when you see these monuments anywhere on earth that Black people once lived there. This is true of Stonehenge in Britain, others in Europe and Asia, and the great walls in Central and South America, even in North America; i.e. all over the world.

Lost City of Akkad found in Anambra State, South Eastern Nigeria.

Akkad was not in any Middle-East. Nigeria had many ancient writing systems which we have lost.

KoloOyinbo:


Don't know about the other evidence for a Hebrew connection but Pyramid building is not one of them. The Igbo pyramids were an independent design (VERY different in scale, structure - circular- and material), built probably willingly, for the housing of a spiritual God.

Egyptian pyramids were built (by Hebrew slave labour) for their Egyptian masters to house the DEAD remains of a pharaoh and protect the worldly wealth (unsuccessfully) from thieves. The Hebrews had no intrinsic interest in pyramids or ever attempted to build any and without Egyptian coercion would not even have bothered with those!

The MANY cultures who built pyramidal structures across the continents (and similar structures such as Ziggurats) exhibit no linkages between themselves.

As for the 'step' design (very different in scale and design from Igbo to Egyptian pyramids) this is also exhibited in most pyramid building cultures as a natural development as peoples learned the techniques of pyramid building.


IF the Igbo pyramids were like the Egyptian (which they are not) it would strongly argue AGAINST a Hebrew-Igbo link and instead FOR an Egyptian-Igbo link.


Hebrews once lived in Egypt as slaves. So yes, they may have learnt to build pyramids while in Egypt hence you can not rule out the Hebrew Igbo link.

Yes indeed.

It is a shame that our wealthy folks do not bother about such things. Rather we wait for oyinbos to come and explore then exploit our CULTURAL heritage.
Quite sad!
Hmmm, this was those long gone days when you made comments without those godawful, noisy memes angry

In 1935, G. I. Jones, an anthropoligist and colonial administrator took pictures of the Nsude pyramids, ancient Igbo pyramids, in Udi, Enugu state Nigeria with a Roloflex camera which he acquired and developed a system for immediate developing which produced negatives of such high quality that they continue to produce excellent prints six decades later. It was at this time that he built up the extraordinary photographic record of Southeastern Nigerian culture.

The pyramids, numbering 10 in number are circular and stepped and were made of clay.

Here are pictures of the pyramids:

The first base section was 60 ft. in circumference and 3 ft. in height. The next stack was 45 ft. in circumference. Circular stacks continued, till it reached the top. The structures were temples for the god Ala/Uto, who was believed to reside at the top. A stick was placed at the top to represent the god’s residence. The structures were laid in groups of five parallel to each other. Because it was built of clay/mud like the Deffufa of Nubia, time has taken its toll requiring periodic reconstruction.

Strikingly, these pyramids bear striking resemblance to the Step Pyramid of Saqqara, in Egypt constructed in 2648 BC and without a doubt, derive from the same cultural/religious/philosophical tradition that inspired this ancient Egyptian monument. Moreso, more striking is the similar replication of Nubian-like pyramids thousands of miles away from the Nubian area in the heart of Igboland, or vice versa, whichever comes first.




The Step Pyramids of Saqqara, Egypt.

Evidence like this indicates a strong level of correlation between the ancient egyptians and the ancient Igbo. The building of the pyramids may have been done at the same time the first or second wave of Egyptian pyramids were built by the Nubians.

The Nubian dynasty of Egypt (the 25th Dynasty of Egypt) saw the first widespread construction of pyramids (many in modern Sudan) since the Middle Kingdom.


For God sake... Why cant Igbo just start from this "contraption" called Nigeria and grow from there. Why this constant bullshitting. Begin to write your own history now so that, it can be read by your generations unborn - its better than wasting time on false sense of entitlement and history. Start by using your technical knowledge to use Solar energy to produce electricity and see how you produce a local technology to make the system sustainable. Just show everyone you are what you call yourselves. Unite your effort in proving everyone wrong. The ultimate secrete shine. You might want to stop embarrassing God with all your nonperformance, considering the immense gift of nature given to you people.
