Chapter 53: Adonai
The Hebrew letter d is the counterpart to the Egyptian letter t, while the Hebrew letter o is the counterpart to the Egyptian letter e, thereby establishing Adon as the Egyptian version of the god Aten. 14 Adon/Aten is said by some authors to be the same god. 15 Coincidentally, Aten, a god of monotheism, reigned supreme under Pharaoh Akenhaten, a heretical pharaoh according to the spurious religions of Egypt. 16 Akenhaten was also known in history as Amenhotep IV, and likely Tutmosis IV, translated as “glorious spirit of the Aten.” 17 Akenhaten obviously reversed his religious beliefs at some point in time, represented by his new name, Akenhaten, which honored his new god. Akenhaten obviously was reared to worship Amun; his original name was Amenhotep IV. Amen is variantly spelled as Amon and Amun, the alleged father of Alexander. Amun was the masculine god of fertility and counterpart to Isis, 18 known variantly as the god Ra, and/or Marduk, from the Akkadian pantheon. 19 Amun was always depicted wearing a ram’s head, 20 just as the Atlantean, Nephilim kings and queens of the bull cult wore ram headbands. Akenhaten closed all the other temples of the Egyptian pantheon, making him most unpopular among the followers of the pantheon and, in particular, the followers of Amun, for Akenhaten did not permit Amun worship in his reign. 21 Oddly enough, Akenhaten reigned around the same period as Moses. I believe Aten’s fame has been contrived by Theosophists and has elemental ties to The Genesis 6 Conspiracy.
Aten did not possess an image, 22 just as the Hebrew God has no image. This concept was established in Egypt well before the birth of Akenhaten. 23 Aten was the omnipotent god introduced by Akenhaten 24 to be the only God worth worshipping. Egyptians of that period additionally believed Aten was the god of all mankind and every creature, the unseen god that created the universe, and who also sustains creation. 25 However, Aten and God are not the same. Aten is a sun god in the spirit of all polytheistic religions and is a force similar to the universal life force. Susan Wise Bauer notes God is never identified with either sun or moon and is so far beyond the disk of the sun that it could not begin to represent Him. Both monotheistic movements were close in time but in no other way. 26
