Lies, distortions, and
mis-conceptions have caused confusion among humankind from the beginning of
man's existence upon the earth. However, there was once a wise man. He resisted
the unnatural and abnormal actions of thinking in the realm of assumed and
pre-mediated lies. This man had peace and relief from many of the frustrations
brought on by those who attempt to live a lie. However the good and the sane
are over-run by those that have yielded to the temptations of Satan.
BUT THERE IS A REMNANT AMONG THE
LOST. THEY WILL SPEAK FOR THEY ARE THANKFUL FOR THE BLESSINGS OF YESTERDAY,
TODAY AND THOSE TO COME.
Peace and Love,

THE MIRACLE OF HEALING
PART 95: EGYPTIAN MEDICINE GAVE
BIRTH TO GREEK MEDICINE
the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
This series of articles clearly notes
the primary importance that religion has on healing. Thus, we have taken from the Bible a scriptural
account of healing. Our task now is to take this knowledge and
present it in parallel fashion too old and contemporary discourses rendered by
As we continue to record the
prominence of Egyptian culture and medicine we also note the following: There have been conflicting
accounts regarding the way the Egyptians viewed religion. Most
reliable sources note that the Egyptians believed in monotheism. There is also
a record that states that the Hebrew people who fled Egyptian
slavery carried the idea of monotheism with them to the
However, why are there accounts of
Pantheism and Henotheism in
Therefore, the Pagan rituals and
beliefs existed also with the more refined belief in one God. However, the resulting confusion did not seem
to disturb them at all. (See the History of Nations, Ancient
Empires of the East, History of Egypt Chapter III, Religion and Mythology,
Henry Cabot Lodge (ed.), Collier and Son, N.Y., 1907 original
printing, p. 41).
Pythagoras and Hippocrates were both
influenced greatly by the Egyptians. Also, many Greek physicians and philosophers studied in
Although there is an absence of
sources that confirm that Hippocrates studied in
"Furthermore Luth and Sudhoff
argue that Hippocrates was affiliated with the medical school at Cos which was
a branch of the Egyptian Medical Schools." (Luth, V.P., Imhotep Order Asklepios: On The beginning of Scientific
Medicine in Egypt and Greece, Hippocrates 34-826-827, 1963).
Meanwhile Pythagoras was one of the
major thinkers of ancient times that carried the Egyptian culture to the
Greeks. Pythagoras (525-550 BC) said everything consists of numbers. He became
interested in numbers for religious reasons. He also believed the study of math
was the best purifier of the soul.
The Egyptian Theory of opposites and
Harmony was adopted by Hippocrates from
Pythagoreanism. As a disciple of the Egyptian Priests he revealed their
teachings and culture among his brethren the Greeks.
What was the origin of the Hippocratic
Oath? Edelstein and Galimand both say that the principle concepts in the Hippocratic Oath are
Pythagoras in origin, "Pythagoreanism then remains the only
philosophical dogma that can account for the attitude advocated in the
Hippocratic Oath." (See Edelstein, L., Ancient Medicine,
The historical record of the Egyptian
influence on Greek culture, arts and medicine has been distorted and confused. This is also true
regarding the accurate record of the Egyptian influence on all world
civilizations. Herodotus noted as the Father of History is often cited by
medical historians and historians in general.
However many historians carefully
exclude Herodotus in his confirmation that the Egyptians were Black people. There are many reasons for
this omission. But the confusion and distortions regarding
Egyptian ethnicity is not the purpose of this discussion. We also note that
Aristotle (350 BC) noted as the father of Science confirms
that the Egyptians were indeed Black. However, he shows a fit
of prejudice and insult. Thus, we see an early point of departure for the
resulting racism motivated by economic greed.
By 1753 we see people like David Hume
although a great contributor to the intellectual thought and Human Understanding making racists
comments about Black people. Hume states that "he suspects the Negroes to
be naturally inferior to the white." (Hume, D., Essays and Treatises on
Several Subjects, London, 1753, Vol. 1., p. 291).
However we are deeply indebted to the responsible research of the following:
