The long-held belief that the Ancient Egyptians did not tend to travel long distances by sea because of poor naval technology proved fallacious last week when timbers, rigging and cedar planks were unearthed in the ancient Red Sea port of Marsa Gawasis, 23 kilometres south of Port Safaga.
The Kushites and the Gods:
Diodorus Siculus a Greek historian of the classical ages devoted an entire chapter of his Magnus opus on world history, the Bibliotheke Historica, or Library of History (Book 3), to the Kushites [“Aithiopians”] of Meroe. Therein he repeats the story of their great piety, their high favor with the gods, and the fact that they were the first of all men created by the gods and were the founders of Egyptian civilization, invented writing, and given the Egyptians their religion and culture. (3.3.2). Concerning the Kushites, Diodorus stated:
We have all heard how the Anus left Kush to spread out unto the ancient world and created the first universal civilization.
Those same Anus were the first builders of ancient Egypt and were the progenitors of the most famous and ancient of the Egyptians like Isis, Osiris, Imhotep , etc.

Hymn to the Aten
Your dawning is beautiful in the horizon of heaven,
O living Aten, creator of life!
When you set in the western horizon,
Earth falls into a deathly darkness.
People sleep in chambers, heads covered,
oblivious of the world,
the possessions in their head stolen.
Every lion comes forth from its den,
the serpents sting.
earth is silent,
as their maker rests in heavens.

The video quality is poor, but watching it is still a very enriching experience!

Fellow Men of the Negro Race, Greeting:
The time has come for the Negro to forget and cast behind him his hero worship and adoration of other races, and to start out immediately, to create and emulate heroes of his own.
The Mystery of an Ethiopian and Basque Aeroplane
By Richard Pankhurst
The Spanish Civil War, one of the most painful events between the First and Second World Wars – don’t forget Gernika! – partially coincided, it will be recalled, with the Italian Fascist invasion of Ethiopia.
Considering the current buzz in the world media that the South Korean government admitted to the International Atomic Energy Agency that a group of the country’s scientists secretly produced a small amount of near-weapons grade uranium, one has to wonder what really is going on in the Korean peninsula.
