Three million years ago, a young woman died on an East African landscape. Today she is called Lucy. Her brittle bones exposed to sight after all this time. Three million year ago, no other place on Earth had known a Lucy. Lucy walked upright; Lucy used tools; Lucy was human; Lucy spread from East Africa to populate all the Earth.
Five thousand years ago, a King and his army from Southern Egypt marched North towards the Mediterranean Sea to form the first unified Kingdom on Earth, on the River Nile in Africa. King Menes’ unifying effort formed the Kingdom of Ancient Egypt which remained essentially intact for over three thousand years. No other government on Earth, at that time, endured for such a long period.
Four thousand years ago, a young King and his family worshiped and praised the One God, Aten. King Akhenaten, sole ruler of the known World empire of Ancient Egypt, wrote a poem that glorified their One God. No where else on Earth, at that time, did people worship and praise less than two gods. From birth Akhenaten grew up surrounded by worshiping and praising the multitude of Egyptian gods. His mother, Tiye, taught him to love God, and God’s Creation. Tiye came from a village named Akhmim in Southern Egypt . She was the Great Royal Wife of Egypt by marriage between families of north and south Egypt.
