3.0 étoiles sur 5 Composite review of two books - 'Act of God' and 'Out of Egypt' 13 juillet 2006
Par Mr. H. A. Imam - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I thought it prudent to do a generic review of the two books so at least they can be compared as they are dealing with the same topics. The two books are `Act of God' by Graham Philips and `Out of Egypt' by Ahmed Osman. They should be read concurrently.

The two authors of their respective books do talk about the same topic of the origins of the Bible stories of Moses and Pharoah (Osman also talks about Christianity) but they have different interpretations of the events and identities of the persons involved. At the outset both books seem to furnish the reader with evidence for their theories and convincingly so. But when the two books are compared, they are diametrically opposed.

1. Identity of Moses:

- Philip's view: It was a prince called `Tuthmosis' whose account in Egyptian literature is spurious and not much is said about him. He was the elder brother of Akhenaten and rightful heir to the throne before he mysteriously disappears. Both Moses and Akhenaten shared the similar views about the one deity. Some of the Atenists joined the Israelites during the Exodus

- Osman's view: Moses was Akhenaten. Because they shared the same religious beliefs they must have been the same person

2. Identities of other peoples

- Philip's view: The other peoples such as David, Joshua, Tutenkhamun etc. are as accepted by the conventional thought

- Osman's view: Tutenkhamun was Jesus. He was killed on Mt. Sinai by Pinhas. Osman argues that the New testament also claims that the Roman soldier who killed Jesus on the cross was Pinhas. Hence the real physical Jesus (Titenkahmun) was confused with the spiritual Jesus of the New Testament. Tuthmosis III was David. Aye was Joseph of Arimathea. Amonhotep III was Solomon

3. Cause of River Nile Turning Red

- Philip's view: Mt. Thera erupted and blocked sunlight. Iron Oxide spewed out and gave the Nile the reddish colour. Because of the catastrophe, plagues ensued and fish died on the Nile.

- Osman's view: The Nile turning red is seasonal. During the season of Inundation, the Nile waters turn reddish. If the events took place in the Eastern Delta this suggests late Summer. The plagues were natural occurrences during the course of the Egyptian year.

4. Origin and meaning of the name, `Moses'

- Philip's view: It is from the Egyptian word, `Mosis' or Mos, meaning `son'. Many people thought that the Hebrew name of Moshe was given to Moses because it means `to draw', and he was drawn out of the water. Philips makes a good point that Egyptians did not use Hebrew. So `Mos' was used which means `son'. The woman who adopted Moses brought him up as a son and a part of the Royal household. `Mos' is used as an adjunct to `Tuth'. Hence the name `Tuthmosis'. So the shady character, Tuthmosis (Akhenaten's older brother) was Moses who led the Israelites out of Egypt.

- Osman's view: Similar to Philips. He also refers to the Hebrew `Moshe' (to draw). But Osman understands `Mos' to mean son in context of a rightful heir, i.e. royalty. As Akhenaten was the rightful heir of Amonhotep III, therefore Akhenaten is Moses.

Summary

You can see how the two different authors are diametrically opposed to each other, yet they seem to furnish their theories with evidence. I came across Graham Philip's book by the suggestion of an Atheist who seemed to be convinced by his investigative research. But as the reader can judge, theories are not proof! The conspiracy theories further become ludicrous when other authors try to link the Pyramids with alien contact (Robert Temple,`The Sirius Mystery' or Peter Lemesurier, 'Gods of the Dawn').

I believe that the best book on the Hebrews and the Egyptians is by the late Maurice Bucaille (well known for his classic, `The Bible, the Quran and Science'), a French doctor and Egyptologist, who gives a very objective account of the Israelites and sheds some interesting light on the Bible and the Quran. The name of this book is, `The Hebrews in Egypt'. This book makes more sense than the portfolio of exotic theories that surround the pyramids, the Jews and the ancient Egyptians. Unfortunately this book is not available at Amazon. Visit a Muslim bookstore.

I was enthralled with this when I first read it and still subscribe to many of the theories put forth in here. But I'll admit that there does seem to be a bit of a discrepancy between the timing of the eruption of Santorini (Mt Thera) which destroyed Minoan Civilization (est to be anywhere from 1640 to 1500BC) and the time of Akhenaten's Rule (est 1350-1336BC). Which is a damn shame, because its such a "beautiful" theory.
