Along with his previous sequence in Egyptology, Gerald Massey became current doctrine on its head to argue that not just had Egypt spawned human civilization, yet that Egyptian mythology was once the foundation for Jewish and Christian ideals. The end result of his years at this actual highbrow pursuit, historical Egypt: the sunshine of the realm is Massey's crown jewel. during this, the main philosophical (in either tone and suggestion) of his Egyptological works, Massey, ever the intrepid escort, leads a travel via hundreds of thousands of years of sociological, cultural, and religious improvement, the entire whereas pointing, with striking cause and persuasive prose, to a far off, universal, Egyptian starting place.

Example text

They said that to talk of what was done before man was made was silly, and that what I had said of God’s talking with men and telling them such things had no proof; and the things I pretended to know and talk of were all old women’s stories. ’” (Madagascar: Robert Drury’s Journal, during Fifteen Years’ Captivity on that Island. And A Further Description of Madagascar, by the Abbé Alexis Rochon. Edited, with an Introduction and Notes, by Captain Pasfield Oliver, R. ) The aborigines do not mistake the facts of nature as we have mistaken the primitive method of representing them.
