The earliest messiahs, gods and goddesses like Christ on all continents were Black and woolly haired. Historian Sir Godfrey Higgins wrote, “The originals of all the Gods have been of the Black race.” The ancients viewed the sacred image of the Divine as Black, and woolly hair, called the hair of the gods, was a sign of divinity.


Below is a partial list of many of the Black Deities.


    • Osiris (Azar), the husband of Isis and greatest of the Egyptian gods, was called The Great Black similar to Krishna’s title. His chief title means Lord of the Perfect Black. Osiris was sun-rayed and had a Black complexion and woolly hair.


  • Buddha of India was Black. That is why his woolly hair is always shown in small tight curls as in the pepper corn style, or in corn rows. Early figurines of him clearly depict his Africoid features of wide nose and full lips. In the most ancient temples of Asia and India, the statues of the gods and goddesses have Africoid features and woolly hair in pepper corn style and even dreadlocks.
  • Zeus, the top god and father of the gods in Greek mythology, was Black and woolly haired, as he had originated in Africa. His chief title was Ethiops, meaning burnt faced.
  • Apollo was Black and woolly-haired like his father Zeus. The world famous Apollo Theatre in Harlem is named after him.
  •  Fu-Hsi,the Son of Heaven and legendary first Emperor of China, was Black and woolly haired.
  • Lao-tse of Taoism was born of a virgin, Black in complexion, described as marvellous and beautiful as jasper. Splendid temples were erected to him, where he was worshiped as a god.
  • Zaha of Japan was woolly haired and African in appearance.
  • Quetzalcoatl of Mexico was recognized as the Messiah by seers and astrologers; his head was rayed; his complexion was Black and his hair was woolly. Contrary to statements by the friars, he was never blond or white.
  • Ixliton is the name of a Mexican god, meaning Black faced. Many ancient Mexican gods are portrayed jet Black with Africoid features.
  • Dilyehe, meaning Home of the Black God, was the name that the Navajo gave to the seven suns of Pleiades.
  • Krishna of India whose name means Black or The Black One, was blue-Black, and is always portrayed with either Black or blue skin and woolly hair which was sometimes locked, according to the Cambridge  Encyclopedia.
  • Vishnu the Hindu god meaning all-pervasive in Sanskrit, is the protector and preserver of the universe and even regarded as the supreme god by some Hindu.
  • Shiva, the husband of the mother goddess Parvati, is the Hindu god of destruction and restoration whose aspect is usually terrifying, but can also be gentle.
  • Tyr of Scandinavia was a woolly haired Norse god who preceded Thor as a sky deity.
  • Isis (Auset) the greatest of the African Goddesses, was worshipped throughout the ancient world in Egypt, Greece, Rome and beyond. She was the Queen of Heaven and the Goddess from whom all becoming arose. The worship of Her survives today, disguised as the worship of the Black Madonna throughout Catholic Europe.
  •  Venus of Willendorf is a famous statue of the Mother God as she was worshipped some 15 to 20 thousand years ago. Although she is found in most art history books, there is no mention that she is Africoid: her entire faceless head is covered with woolly hair like that of the Buddha.
  • Caillech (Cale, Kali) was known as the Black Queen in medieval legends, and to the Celts as the mother of many races. The Spanish called her Califia and gave her name to their newly discovered paradise which is now called California.
  • Scotia was a Black goddess and Egyptian princess after which Scotland is named.
  • Kali meaning the Black One was the Great Black Mother as well as the Hindu Triple Goddess of Creation, preservation, and destruction. She is also known as Kalikamata, Black earth-mother and Kalaratri Black night, and among the Tamils she is known as Kottavei. Kali is worshipped particularly in Bengal and her best known temples are in Kalighat and Dakshineshvara.
  • Nidra the sister of Vishnu, is the Black-skinned goddess who is clothed in yellow and dark blue silk.
  • Athena of Greek mythology was Black and woolly haired, originating from Africa (Libya). She was later whitened up like the other African gods when adopted by Europe. She was also known as Anath, Medusa, and the Egyptian goddess Neith.
  • Kar of Afrika's Nile Valley was the inner soul of Mother Earth. She was a beautiful ebony virgin who was the Heart of the World. Shrines of Karnak in Egypt and Carnac in Brittany were dedicated to Kar who was the Goddess of Agriculture, grain especially. She was called Kore by the Arabs and Greeks, and Ceres by the Romans.
  • Circe, who played a great role in Homer's Odyssey, was the most famous female magician of all time. Ancient Greek drawings portray her as a beautiful African woman.
  • At Delphi in Greece, the oracles of Dodona and Apollo were founded by two Black Doves or African priestesses from Thebes, according to Herodotus.

 ARF EDITORIAL COMMENTS: It is said that when Jesus appeared all other gods disappeared, and where they did not disappear they where whitewashed and their Black identity destroyed. This is true because European Christianity, which was a decreed religion of the Roman Empire, abolished the religions of the ancient world which emanated from ancient Khemet (Egypt) and burned the shrines and temples of these ancient Afrikan deities. However, in India and other parts of Asia they still maintain their ancestral spiritual/religious traditions and worship of their own Gods. It must be noted that all these gods and goddesses are divine energies of the same One God and that one God/Goddess was originally black.

Looking at the picture of the Ithyphallic Black God above the reason  white males hate black males and white females love  black males,  is not difficult  to understand.





“In early Christian art, Jesus is almost invariably represented as black skinned. ‘In pictures and portraits of Christ by early Christians, Kersey Graves asserted, he is uniformly represented as being black; and to make this the more certain the red tinge is given to the lips; and the only text in the Christian Bible, quoted by orthodox Christians, as describing his complexion represents it as being black”…

In Indian art, Krishna is depicted as a man of black complexion, and the name Krishna literally means the black. In discussing the black complexion of Krishna, John M. Robertson noticed, “He thus in the first place comes into line with the black deities of other faiths, notable the Osiris [Ausar] of Egypt, to say nothing of the black manifestations of Greek deities and of the Christian Jesus. Among the Christian nations of Europe, even unto our own times, we notice the prevalence of statues and pictures of the black Christ.


The reverend, Charles H. Vail, in a scholarly study, “the world’s saviors”, records the stories of miraculous births of fifteen other saviors, who lived before the Christian era. The names of these world saviors are Krishna of India, Gautama of India, Horus of Egypt, Tammuz of Babylonia, Mithra of Persia, Zoroaster of Persia, Quetzalcoatl of Mexico, Bacab of Yucatan, Huetzilopochtli of Mexico, Freyr of Scandinavia, Attis of Phrygia, Bacchus of the Romans, Adonis of Syria, Yu of China, Jesus.

The belief in miraculous births was common to antiquity,” the Reverend Vail noted. “Nearly every nation had a festival at or near the 25th of December in honor of the birth of a Divine Being. These incarnations were generally referred to as immaculate conceptions and the persons thus born were called saviors. The advent of the saviors here mentioned preceded the Christian Era, some of them by thousands of years. Gods and heroes, born of virgins, were quite common in olden times, and the source of most, if not all of these divinities, seems to have been Egypt.”


Horus was said to be the parthenogenetic child of the Virgin Mother, Isis. In the catacombs of Rome, black statues of this Egyptian divine Mother and Infant still survive from the early Christian worship of the Virgin and Child to which they were converted. In these the Virgin Mary is represented as a black negress and often, with the face veiled in the true Isis fashion…Statues of the goddess Isis with the child Horus in her arms were common in Egypt, and were exported to all neighboring and to many remote countries, where they are still to be found with new names attached to them—Christian in Europe, Buddhist in Turkestan, Taoist in China and Japan, Figures of the Virgin Isis do duty as representations of Mary, of Hariti, of Kuan-Yin, of Kwannon, and of other Virgin Mothers of Gods.

The birth of the sun was personified in ancient Egypt as Horus [Heru], the son of Osiris [Ausar] and Isis [Auset], the god of light and the savior of the world. On the inner walls of the holy of holies in the temple of Luxor, inscribed about two thousand years B.C. by King Amenhotep III, the birth of  Horus is pictured in four scenes, strikingly, like the Christian representations of the “Annunciation and the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary and the Birth and Adoration of the Christ Child. These four consecutive scenes as engraved on the walls of the temple of Luxor are reproduced in Gerald Massey’s Ancient Egypt Vol. II and may be described as follows:

1. The Annunciation: The god Thoth is shown announcing to the virgin the fact that she is about to give birth to a son.

2. The Immaculate Conception. The god Kneph (the Holy Spirit) and the goddess Hathor [Het-Heru] are shown mystically impregnating the virgin by holding crosses [Ankh] (the symbol of life) to the head and nostrils of the mother-to-be.

3. The Birth of the Child God: The mother is seated on the mid-wife’s stool and the newborn infant is held by attendants.

4. The Adoration: The infant Horus is displayed as receiving homage form the gods and men, including the three kings or magi who are tendering him gifts. In this scene, the symbol of the cross again appears.


Herr Eugene George, an able German historical scholar declared:

A splendid era of black seems to have preceded all the later races. There must once have been a tremendous Negro expansion, since the original masters of all the lands between Iberia and the Cape of Good Hope and East India were primitive and probably dwarfed black men. We have long had proof that a primitive Negroid race of pigmies once lived around the Mediterranean. Blacks were the first to plow the mud of the Nile; they were the dark skinned, curly haired Kushites. Blacks were masters of Sumeria and Babylon before it became the country of the four tongues. And in India, the kingdom of the Dravidian Monarchs, the black and godless enemies existed until the period of written history. Many thousands of years before Christ, great cultures bloomed in the rank, rich valleys of the Yang-tse-kiang, the Ho, Indus, Euphrates, Nile and Congo rivers, while Oceania, Central America, the highlands of the Andes were centers of human settlement. As monumental as if planted on earth by the gods themselves, the Egyptian culture gleamed in iridescent holiness, sustained by the despotic will of omnipotent Pharaohs.

A similar opinion was advanced by Professor Ernest Albert Hooton, anthropologist of Harvard University

…A large share of the responsibility for the great civilization of India must be assigned to Negroes, since there is unquestionably a very strong Negroid strain in the Indian population.

Herodotus, who spent two years traveling in Egypt in the fifth century B.C., had no hesitation in assigning the ancient Egyptians to the black race…”There can be no doubt that the Colchians are an Egyptian race. Before I heard any mention of the fact from others. I had remarked it myself. My own conjectures were founded first on the fact that they are black skinned and have woolly hair, which certainly amounts to by little, since several other nations are so too; but further, and more especially, on the circumstance that the Colchians, the Egyptians, and the Ethiopians are the only nations who have practiced circumcision from the earliest times. We will add a further proof in the identity of the Egyptians and the Colchains. These two nations weave their linen in exactly the same way, and this is a way entirely unknown to the rest of the world. They also in their whole mode of life, and in their language, resemble one another.”

A number of scientists and scholars in ancient and modern times have concluded that the world’s first civilization was the creation of a people known as the Ethiopians. The name Ethiopian we owe to the ancient Greeks, the word for burnt was Ethios, and the word for the face was ops; so ethios plus ops became Ethiopian. The Greeks thought that these peoples developed their dark complexions because they lived closer to the sun than the fairer inhabitants of Europe. We have been told by a well-informed modern authority:

The fame of the Ethiopians was widespread in ancient history. Herodotus describes them as “The tallest, most beautiful and long-lived of the human races,” and before Herodotus, Homer, in even more flattering language described them as “the most just of men; the favorites of the gods.” The annuals of all the great early nations of Asia Minor are full of them. The Mosaic records allude to them frequently; but while they are described as the most powerful, the most just, and the most beautiful of the human race, they are constantly spoken of as black, and there seems to be no other conclusion to be drawn than that at the remote period of history, the leading race of the Western World was a black race.

We learn from the works of Homer and Herodotus that all the peoples of the following territories were considered to be Ethiopians: The Sudan, Egypt, Arabia, Palestine, Western Asia, and India.

Is seems certain that classical historians and geographers called the whole region from India to Egypt, both countries inclusive, by the name of Ethiopia, and in consequence they regarded all the dark skinned and black peoples who inhabited it as Ethiopians. Mention is made of Eastern and Western Ethiopians, and it is probable that the Easterners were Asiatics and the Westerners Africans. In the present work which I have called A History of Ethiopia, I have made no attempt to describe the history of that large portion of the earth’s surface which the Greeks called Ethiopia, but only that comparatively small section of it which is today named, both by large numbers of Orientals and by Europeans generally, Abyssinia, and also the country of Kush, which is now known as Nubia… In identification of Kush with Abyssinia, under the name of Ethiopia made by the translators of the Ethiopic version of the Bible, in the 5th (or 6th) century has for many centuries been accepted by the Abyssinians.  And to this day, the Abyssinian, in reciting Psalm I. XVIII (v.31) says “Ethiopia shall make her hands reach unto God.” During the preparation of this work I have been driven to the conclusion that the Ethiopians whose manners and customs have been so fully described by Herodorus, Diodorus, Strabo, Pliny, and others, were not Abyssinians at all, but the natives of Upper Nubia, and the Island of Meroe, and the Negroes and Negroid peoples who inhabited the hot, moist lands which extended from Southern Abyssinia to the Equator. (Jackson).


The Greeks are noted for their contributions to philosophy, but they knew nothing of the study before coming under the influence of the Egyptians. Aristotle conceded that his people obtained their first knowledge of astronomy and mathematics for Egypt; and, according to Diodorus Siculus, Egyptian priests possessed souvenirs of the visits of Pythagoras, Democritus, Plato, and Eudoxus in their country. In Egypt, Democritus studied astronomy; Pythagoras learned geometry, the theory of numbers, and transmigration; and it was there that Solon, Plato, and Lycurgus got their knowledge of law. Eudoxus, about 370 B.C., learned from the Egyptian astronomers the conception of the celestial sphere. He carried it back to Greece and outlined upon it the celestial equator, the ecliptic, and the most important constellations. Thales of Miletus, of mixed Greek and Phoenician ancestry, was born in the first half of the sixth century B.C., and he was the founder of Greek science and philosophy.  He was a merchant, traveler, philosopher, mathematician, astronomer, and an engineer. As a young man, he was a student in Egypt, but he returned to Miletus in his old age.

The role of Egypt in civilizing the Greeks has been vividly depicted by the English historian, Winwood Reads: Egypt from the earliest times had been the University of Greece. It had been visited, according to tradition, by Orpheus and Homer… And now every intellectual Greek made the voyage to that country; it was regarded as a part of education, as a pilgrimage to the cradle land of their mythology. To us, Egypt is a land of surpassing interest, but nevertheless, merely a charnel house a museum, a valley of ruins and dry bones. The Greeks saw it alive…They wandered in the mazes of the Labyrinth; they gazed on the mighty Sphinx couched on the yellow sands with a temple between its paws; they entered the great hall of Karnak, filled with columns like a forest and paved with acres of solid stone… There are some who ascribe the whole civilization of Greece and the rapid growth of Greek literature to the free trade which existed between the two lands. Greece imported all its paper from Egypt, and without paper, there would have been few books.” (FOR MORE KNOWLEDGE READ STOLEN LEGACY)
