Jews, Christians AND Muslims claim that Abraham was the first Monotheist. This is a lie. Abraham was from Ur and all the people of Ur were Zoroastrians. That is why "Fire" played such a huge role in Abraham's encounters with what he called "God." Abraham also worshiped Moloch and that is why he was going to sacrifice his son (Jews say Isaac and Muslims say Ishmael) to Moloch on the mountain in Salem (the location of the Altar of Moloch during Abraham's time). Moloch was a Canaanite God who was also known as "El" or "Eloah" (Allah in Arabic). In truth, the Pharaoh Akhenaten was the first Monotheist. He called the One true creator of all things "Aten." From the book "Osiris: Death and Afterlife of a God" by Bojana Mojsov (Chapter 7) "The new pharaoh introduced Monotheism to the history of religion. It had such a profound effect on religious thought that it became impossible to return to the old ways without attempting a reformation. Religious doctrines developed during this reformation reinvigorated Egyptian religion and gave impetus to ideas that later flourished in Greco-Roman Egypt and eventually influenced the rise of Christianity. In 1352 BC, when he ascended the throne of Egypt, Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten) was already a man with a vision. Somewhere in the open courts of his father's palace he had a revelation. God had spoken to him. He had shown himself as One, mother and father, creator of all. Amenhotep was transformed. The path had been chosen for him. He wrote poetry, inspired by the voice he heard: Splendid you rise, O, livin Aten, eternal lord, you are radiant, beauteous, mighty, your love is great, immense. Your rays light up all faces, your bright hue gives life to hearts, when you fill the Two Lands (Upper and Lower Egypt) with your love. August god (Leo/Virgo Sphinx) who fashioned himself, who made every land, created what is in it, all people, herds, and flocks, all trees that grow from the soil. They live when you dawn (rise) for them, you are the mother and father of all you made . . . You are One, yet a million lives are in you. The god was Aten and Akhenaten was his messenger. In Egyptian tradition, Aten was the sun disk, one of the aspects of the sun-god. Yet, to the new king, the particular manifestation had become more important (to the earth) than any other. " This was NOT "Sun-Worship" . . . The Egyptians already worshipped the Sun. Akhenaten said that Aten was greater than the sun but that for the Earth the Sun was Aten's greatest and most significant manifestation and that ALL life (on earth) thrived because of its rays. He was correct. Akhenaten was the original Buddha-Figure. Akhenaten was the original Christ/Messiah-Figure. Akhenaten was the original Monotheist. Moses (ThutMOSIS) was not. Judaism, Christianity AND Islam all depend upon Moses (ThutMOSIS) being a real person and Abraham being the first Monotheist. These religions have been historically proven wrong through Akhenaten. Akhenaten and his wife Queen Nefertiti were the original Monotheists. They ruled for 18 years in Egypt together BOTH as King and Queen Pharaoh. Her word was as valid as his.
