Egypt 🇪🇬 | Time Travel is Real


Photo: Luxor, Karnak Temple

Since we returned from Egypt one thing was always in my mind - if you want time travel, if you want to go back in time, go visit Egypt. Structure, temples, burial chambers still standing from distance past. 1000s of years old and they were built by god himself. Egyptian Pharaohs were seen by their people as living god(s).

GOD WAS TIRED OF US

You know we human wouldn't be here today if Bumba, the creator didn't have stomach pain.

Long ago, Bumba was the god for many. Bumba was lonely, felt pain in his stomach, vomited the sun moon and stars. Bumba vomited 9 animals and thus we arrived on planet earth.



Photo: Old Cairo. Look carefully, two different religions worshipping within feet apart. It raises the deepest question: Is that god divided us with thousands of belief systems? OR it’s us who sliced god into pieces to create our own?

Modern history: It’s about 200,000+ years modern human evolved. For these many years people suffered, killed by other animals, slaughtering their own, fighting other tribes, diseases, natural disasters and endless pain.

For this long period, the heaven remained silent, angels were sitting idle, god was relaxed. Then all on a sudden god was tired of monkey like animal, us, human. Too much barbarism in the Middle East, unbearable chaos is happening down there, so heaven decided to intervene to the most illiterate part of the world. God started handing out prophecy to thousands mostly through family trees, started publishing his books through messengers. Not once, not twice or three times. He ended up sending 4 books from heaven (islamic history). At the very end, after the 3rd edition god realized- Opps! These monkey like human kept changing his published books, BIG mistake! God didn’t think it through clearly in the beginning, he was in pain like Bumba and decided to protect his 4th edition on his own. And just like that, flash of a moment, god appeared, and left us with stories not more compelling than Bumba.


Photo: The Valley of the Kings. This is Egypt’s most popular king Tutankhamun, All the royal mummies are in Cairo museum, except King Tut.Egypt kept its most treasured king where he was buried 3000+ years ago. We were lucky to be with the king alone for few minutes when no one else entered the tomb.

The Egyptian Pharaohs ruled the land like god(s) more than 2000 years before Christ. Their magnificent power lived thousands of years. Now they are buried in museums. How many of you think our churches, mosques, synagogues, temples and books from heaven will face the same? At this moment, they are young, and they have right to be arrogant as they are today.

In Egypt, Ramesses II was the most powerful Pharaoh, a human like god. His mummy in Cairo Museum and his statue in Karnak Temple with his daughter between his legs who later became his wife. Right or wrong? That question only be asked thru ages. What we do today considering right will be seen as absurd someday in future, don't you agree?
