I’ve always been a bit fascinated by the Land of the Pyramids. Katanga A. Bong begins by discussing the beginnings of civilizations. He purports that man begin in South America rather than Africa. I am certainly not an anthropologist however, his arguments seemed well thought out and plausible.
Ancient was an amazing and yet frightening place. Legends abound in ancient Egypt. So do the scientific achievements and cultural accomplishments. There was a fondness for human sacrifice.
He continued by discussing the history of Africa with an emphasis on Egypt. I found the section on Uru particularly interesting. Bongo writes in an easy to understand style. He seems to speak with authority. He simply states his hypothesis and presents his arguments. Students of history will enjoy Civilization and the Ancient Egyptians.
I thought I knew a little about Ancient Egypt. Apparently it was all wrong. Bongo believes that due to a climate shift – possibly a shift of the Earth’s axis-many Africans migrated to South America. That explains the pyramids in South America.
Bongo has a unique view of King Tut (Tutu) and of the Hebrews. Bongo sees King Tutu not as a King but as a savior. He believes Tutu was sacrificed. "There has not been any human sacrifice in Africa or the Middle East sine Tutu was sacrificed four thousand years ago. "
