-Pre-dynastic Egyptian Art and evidence of contact with Mesopotamian art., developed thousands of years later.
-Meaning of the symbol Ankh. Union of Circl (eternal, transcendental) and cross (living matter in time and space).
-Similarities between the Kemetic God Asar with theArabian God of Baal, appearing 3,000 after the god Asar in Kemet. Similarities between goddess Hetheru and Sekhmet, and other Kemetian symbols with art from Asia minor.

-The African origin of Jesus according to some verses of the bible.
-Temple of Denderah, Temple of Isis, Temple of Luxor, and how they came to be in ruins and their history of dismantlement and coaptation by early Christians and Muslims.
-Koran writings and the egotistic foundation of the Islam culture. The existence of the god Allah in pre-Islamic Arabia, prior to the existence of Islam.
-How all western religions are based on superiority, separation, segregation, intolerance and enslavement of the enemy. With the enemy being anyone else that differs from them, having as ultimate goal the control of the masses.
-Conflicts and contradictions between the main religions of the world.
-The Kaaba’ in Mecca, and its roots in Kemetian culture.
-Core teachings and myths in Christianism, Islam and Judaism being originally developed in Kemet and adopted by those religions. Evidence of contact and influence.
-Concept of religion according to Dr Henrik Clarke and how it ties humans to spirit and land and should be the result of an internal cultural process, not adopted or assumed from other cultures.
-The need to go to the source and the fundamental principles when studying a religion or a philosophy, in order to avoid conflicts and disharmony caused by translations, understanding and interpretation from the human point of view.

B) Most important Theme:

To my perception, the most important theme discussed relates to how delving into the true essence of a lost religion allows us to reconstruct it and to understand the main principles and precepts of it. I think that, regardless of all the destruction, coaptation, tergiversation and efforts from Christians, Muslims and other dominant cultures to end Kemetic culture, they have not been able to completely destroy the Kemetic legacy, their teachings and their philosophy. Therefore, Kemetian culture is still alive, reconstructed and can be practiced and followed by anyone interested.
