Question: Ask The Nuwaupians about the word Egypt and if it really means "burnt faces.

Answer: They have no answer other than what York told them.

 

In the Nuwaupian doctrine, it is taught that the name Egypt means "burnt faces." This is repeated by most Nuwaupians when teaching others on the street and in classes. Here are a few references from Nuwaupian literature:

 

"Agyptos Means "Burnt Faces" Which Was Referring To Hyksos, Because They Were So Light Skinned, The Sun Used To Bum Their Faces Red."

-Degree of Christism pg. 147

 

"The Heka Khasut "Hyksos'" Skin Became Bruised By The Ultra Violet Rays Of The Tama-Rean Sun, Thus The Term Aegyptos, "Burnt Faces."

-Black Book pg. 200

 

 "That Is Both Olive Green And Dark Olive Brown People In Time Immemorial Before The Philistinian Phoenicians Intrusion Into On Nehisi "Nubia", Ta-Zeti "Sudan", Which They And Their Greek Spartic Brothers Call Egyptos, "Place Of Burnt Faces" Today Egipt, Or Misr, Also Called Tama-Re, Ta-Merry, And Alkebu- Lan, From The Land Gerar, As The Hyksos Mixed Seed."

 -Black Book pg. 237

 

"In fact, the word Egypt means “burnt faces”, and refers to the skin burns received by the Canaanites moving into Tama-re."

-AEO Magazine Edition 6 pg. 1

 

Is this accurate?  The answer is NO, let's examine the facts:

The spelling of the word Egypt comes to us (in English) from the Latin word "Aegyptvs" which was derived from the Greek word Aί γυ πτoς "Aigyptos" which is a term used by the Greeks to denote the administrative center and important Ancient Kemetic city of Men Nefer (Memphis). The Greeks referred to the country as Aigyptos due to their interactions with this great community. This great community was located at the 1st Sipat of Lower Egypt and was originally called Aneb Hedj /inb hdj/ in the Kemetic language at the unification of the Nile Valley. The word "Sipat" is the Kemetic name for what the Greeks called Nomes. Ancient Kemet was divided into 42 Sipat (nomes). The Sipatu evolved from village communities that were controlled by independent rulers/governors and these villages eventually amalgamated into large districts that developed cultural identities. In the Kemetic script of Mdw Ntr a Sipat is rendered with the glyph of an irrigation channel which signifies the fact that Sipats were areas of irrigated land where people communed. The first Sipat of Lower Kemet was called Aneb Hedj as stated above. It was so-called by this name because of the beautifully constructed white walls in the location. The Kemetic word Hedj means the color "white" and the word Aneb means "wall." This same location was later referred to as /mn mfr/ Men Nefer which was so named after the Pyramid complex of King Pepy II called /mn mfr ppy/ Men Nefer Pepy which means "Established in beauty is Pepy" that was located nearby at Saqqara.

The Great Temple of Ptah that was located in the Sipat of Aneb Kedj (later called Men Nefer) was called /hwt ka pth/ Hut Ka Ptah in the Kemetic Language and this can be found in the Amarna Tablets among other primary sources.  This location and name, Hut Ka Ptah, is later attested in Mycenaean Greek Language which is an early form of Greek where you will find the word "ai ku piti" (akupiti) being used as a reference to the Temple Complex of Hut Ka Ptah. The Mycenaean Greek was written in a script referred to as Linear B and pre-dates the Greek alphabetic script we see used today. Volumes of tablets of the script is still survived today as primary resources. As a side note and to attest to the popularity of this particular Kemetic administrative center, the temple complex of Hut Ka Ptah was also known in Akkadian as "hi.ku.up.ta.ah" - hikuptah.

The use of the early Mycenaean Greek word "akupiti" for the Temple Complex of Hut Ka Ptah continued and was made popular by Manetho, an Egyptian Historian under the Ptolemy Rule (3rd century BC) who wrote his works in the Greek Language.  In his work called "Aigyptiaca", Manetho wrote about the temple of Hut Ka Ptah in the Greek language and rendered it Aί γυ πτoς (actual Greek script) and Aigyptos (transliteration). With close examination you can see how its all the same:

hwt ka pth (Mechanical Transliteration of Kemetic)

 

Hut Ka Ptah (Transliteration of Kemetic)

 

Ai Ku Piti (Mycenean Greek)

 

Hi Ku Up Ta Ah (Akkadian)

 

Aί γυ πτoς (Modern Greek script)

 

Ai gy ptos (Transliteration of Greek)

 

Ae gy ptvs (Latin)

 

Egypt (English)

 

Everyone should be able to see, the progression of the indigenous word Hut Ka Ptah of Ancient Egypt which expressed the meaning "House of the Spirit of Ptah." At no time did the Ancient Egyptians refer to the Temple Complex, The City, or Sipat as "burnt faces." None of the above words meant "burnt faces."

This area originally called Aneb Hedj and later Men Nefer/Memphis was of major importance to the entire Mediterranean area as it was a thriving provider of commerce to the rest of Kemet as well as trades with foreign nations. The area of Memphis was so great and provided so much that it gain the descriptions and status of a country/nation of itself. The Greeks interactions with Aneb Hedj/Hut Ka Ptah/Men Nefer/Memphis led them to refer to the whole area as Aigyptos because they saw it as a country and complete in and of itself.

The fact is, the Greeks took the name of one city and referred to the whole country as that name. The word Ethiopian is the word that came to mean Burnt Faces today as it was taken from the Greek.  In Greek mythology, Aethiops was the son of the Greek God of Technology, Fire, Construction named Hephaestus. These terms dealt with the chemical process of burning or combustion. This relates to the Greek compound Aithein-"to burn" and Ops-"surface, face". The word ultimately has its origins in Africa but is the subject of another topic.

Any Nuwaupian who accepts the misinformation and/or teaches it to others is certainly under the spell of blind faith.
