Hot off the presses! Pass it around, post it wherever you see misinformation. I think the reality is far more fascinating than the fictional “alien” paradigm created around this phenomenon.
We’ve now got a new special that includes all four of our Astrotheology Calendars. U.S. and Australian residents can get all four for a 35% discount. Even though they are from the past years, these calendars will make great Christmas gifts, as they are full of fascinating information about the world’s religious traditions and ancient ruins.
Here’s a new post with more information about this subject, covered in my forthcoming book Did Moses Exist? The Myth of the Israelite Lawgiver.
Over the years, much has been made of the fact that American president Barack Obama was born to a Muslim father and attended a Muslim school in Indonesia. Those who object to the “Obama is a Muslim" meme point to the fact that he also attended a Catholic school in Indonesia, was raised by an "atheist" mother and went on to become a Christian.
I don’t usually write negative reviews, but here are some thoughts about this inexplicably popular book, “Moses and Akhenaten.”
The word “ummah” is used within Islam to describe the global community of Muslims. This term is derived from the ancient Semitic word “um” or “umm,” meaning “MOTHER” and “thus hints at the ideal mother-child relationship.” This fact of the word connoting MOTHERHOOD is betrayed by the abject mistreatment of females within this ideology. It would be best if everyone realized the root term as “MOTHER” and adjusted accordingly. The mother-child relationship means NURTURING and LOVING, not sending your children off to jihadi camps to learn how to kill and die in the name of a god. MOTHER knows best here, so please pay attention to this mama.
