The A to Z of Sophia, the Wisdom of God and our disobedient heroine.
Almost everything, beyond your gnosis, you ever wanted to know about
Hagias Sophia, Barbelo, Eve, Shekinah, the Holy Spirit, among her many
avatars. She was revered before the Gnostics and after they were
wiped out in many sects and Eastern Churches. Now it's time she
returned to our minds and the mind of God himself in order to heal the

Our rebroadcast is `Coffee, Cigarettes & Gnosis #23-- The Princes of
Egypt'. We dealt with the Egyptian roots of Judaism, Christianity and
Islam. Our guest was Ahmed Osman, author of 'Christianity: An Ancient
Egyptian Religion' & 'Moses and Akhenaten: The Secret History of Egypt
at the Time of the Exodus' & 'Jesus in the House of the Pharaohs: The
Essene Revelations on the Historical Jesus'.
Sigmund Freud wrote a book called 'Moses and Monotheism', in which he
paints Moses as an Egyptian who established the first monotheistic
religion revering the god Amun (Amen). It was dismissed and
marginalized by most of academia. Yet new scholarship, archeological
evidence, and anthropological breakthroughs have suddenly made Papa
Freud's allegations not only substantive but perhaps only the tip of
the ice berg. More than just the usual parallels, we delve into
factual evidence that shows the Egyptian roots of Judaism,
Christianity & Islam, perhaps all based on a brief cult of the deposed
Pharaoh Akhenaten 3400 year ago that later was resuscitated by the
Gnostics and the Essenes of Alexandria.
Other topics discussed:
--Ahmed's evolution from a Muslim extremist jihadist into a respected
Egyptologist with Gnostic leanings.
--Evidence that the Israelites were nomadic, Semite shepherds that
interbred with Egyptian royalty; and then turned their backs to their
--How the King David of the Bible is just a composite character of a
petty tribal chief in Judea and a prior Egyptian Pharaoh, Tuthmosis
III, who ruled from the Nile to the Euphrates centuries before the
Israelites ever existed.
--The real identities behind the Patriarchs Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph
by a careful sifting through history, archeology, and scriptural exegesis.
--The possibility that Moses was actually Pharaoh Akhenaten, the first
person who conceived the concept of a supreme, impersonal deity that
wasn't interested in real estate but all of humanity itself. Many
scholars have called Akhenaten first idealist and philosopher in
history during his life in 1400 BC.
--The priestly revolution that banished Akhenaten (Moses) and sent him
to Sinai; and the later rule of his son, Tutankhaten (which ironically
means 'Son of the Living God'), who would be known as Joshua and
further down the line as a certain Jesus.
--How the cult of Isis and Osiris kept the secret of Joshua
(Tutankhaten) and the supreme god, Amen, underground for 1400 years
until it was revived publicly by the Gnostics of Alexandria.
--The possibility that Saint Paul, after his conversion, went to
Arabia to learn the Egyptian Mysteries of Amen; and how his theology
of the Cross actually meant the Ankh, not the Roman Cross that was
only used centuries later by Christendom.
--Ahmed, in detail, deciphers several Egyptian Hieroglyphs that
present none other than The Gospel of Jesus Christ, including a mature
concept of The Trinity.
--How the Church of Rome co-opted the Egyptian Gnostics of Alexandria
and later created a historical Jesus after destroying their libraries
and temples. And murdering Hypatia of Alexandria!!!
--The eternal battle between Peter (Orthodoxy) and Saint Paul/Simon
Magus, with sadly the same result: Orthodoxy winning.
--How even the Koran points to Akhenaten (Moses) and the supreme God,
--Why perhaps only the Gnostic worldview and the knowledge forgotten
in Alexandria might be the best antidote against the rising tide of
Christian, Jewish & Islamic fundamentalism around the world.
It's a mouthful and soul-full, my Truthseekers, so lie down on your
couch and listen to the ghost of Papa Freud.
