The Alien Pharaoh
Amenhotep IV, better known as Akhenaton (or Akhenaten) was the progenitored offspring of the Sun Disk, or UFO presence in Egypt, circa 1370 BC.
The impregnation of Amenhotep III’s wife Tiye by the Sun Disk visitor(s) produced Amenhotep IV who, during his reign, established the worship of the Sun Disk (Aten or Aton).
The extraterrestrial birth of Akhenaton prefigured the virgin birth of Jesus, and may have been instigated by the same “god” or race of gods (galactic aliens) that created Mary’s son. (But that for another time.)
The consolidation of the many Egyptian gods into the one god, Aton, is considered to be the first actual thrust of monotheism in history.¹
The reign of Akhenaten ended badly – his constructions, works, and visage were effaced, with only remnants extant.
The priests of the old gods – Amon in particular – resumed power and authority upon Akhenaton’s “death” during the reign of Tutankhamun (King Tut).
But for a brief time, Akhenaton’s god – represented by the Sun Disk – held sway in Egypt, just as the god of Moses (Yahweh) held sway not far from the Egyptian kingdom in the same time frame.
Moses was human; Akhenaton was not. His physical being, as shown in the art works still intact which commemorated him, indicated a hybrid: elongated head (like those found in the Americas among the Mayans and Incan peoples) and androgynous features (breasts, extended stomach, small frame).
Moses became an advocate for his god but Akhenaton became an actual surrogate for the Sun God, just as Jesus did for His God 1300 years later.
The alien thrust in the Mesopotamian region was hefty. God-like humans proliferated (Gilgamesh, Hercules, Ǽson)² but only Akhenaton left a definite legacy.
Extraterrestrials inserted themselves in the early history of man, worldwide, but then disappeared, generally, until the modern era which seems to be duplicating the prior attempts to mate with humans as evidenced by alien/UFO abduction accounts.
But these current intrusions end just as futilely as that involving the pharaoh Akhenaton (or even Jesus/Christ).
The gods can’t seem to get a foothold in human civilization. Something or someone else makes sure that the Sun Disk doesn’t assume prominence, not for Akhenaton nor for present day abductees, persons with far less power and authority than the Sun Pharaoh.
And grist for investigation is what or who is that force that prevents and has prevented the ascendancy and worship of the alien intruders mistaken for God or gods.
The UFO mystery is not where the answer lies; it’s somewhere outside the flying saucer phenomenon.
