Who Were The Pyramid Builders of Ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, & America?

Ham (meaning "Dark One") was the father of Cush who was the father of Nimrod (meaning "Rebel"). Nimrod organized great urbanizing building projects in Mesopotamia including the ziggurat Tower of Bab El. Because the nomadic Semites saw their way of life threatened by this urbanization, and because they were probably forced to to do much of the work, this "Ziggurat" came to represent all that they hated so they apparently revolted against the Hamites & "scattered" these dark pigmented people & their "language" (culture) across the two rivers & beyond before the projects could be completed (and gave their god the credit).


Because of the greatness of Nimrod, and in honor of his father, the Cushites take the name of the father & become the more famous of the Hamitic branches hence regions, kingdoms and cities in the ancient world are named after Cush. Some Cushites fled westward and established Africa's first civilization. Under their dominion the first pyramid was built in Egypt. This step pyramid still stands today at Saqqara & it is not unlike the step pyramids of Mesopotamia & Mesoamerica. Egyptologist Mark Lehner's "ramp" explanation of how the Cushites built the pyramids prevails. Until a pyramid's construction was complete one would see a ziggurat. That's right... The Tower of Bab El may have been an unfinished pyramid. "...The cylindrical seal, which is unquestionably Mesopotamian, appears in the earliest known period of Egyptian history.  Early Egyptian & Mesopotamian mace heads are identical.  Early Egyptian architecture resembles Mesopotamia's in the use of the recessed panel as a decoration for brick walls.  Pre dynastic pottery, statuettes, and decorative motifs are in many cases identical with Mesopotamian products." - Will Durant, Our Oriental Heritage. Black migrations displaced the original coloreds to remote & southern Africa supporting my position that the Hamites were centrally dispersed from Mesopotamia & not Africa. Again, to support Mesopotamian central disbursement of blacks... Pyramid technology occurs only in north Africa where it undergoes concentrated refinement & is evenly distributed throughout the rest of the world in varying degrees of resource refinement.


Another branch of Hamites, the offspring of Cush's brother Canaan, fled westward to the eastern shore of the Mediterranean.  Feeling secure with a mountain range between them & the Semites they established the first Mediterranean civilization for it is essentially their version of the Sumerian alphabet that the west adopted.  They called themselves Canaanites after their ancestor & their country, Canaan.  The greeks, in the earliest phase of their civilization, adopted the Canaanite version of the alphabet (but writing from left to right) & relied heavily on the Canaanites for the provision of ships for trade & transport & referred to them as "Phoenike" after the fruit of the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera) because of their dark skin. Hence the west would refer to them as Phoenicians.  The Phoenicians were not colonists (with the exception of a few outposts that grew into cities like Cadiz, Carthage, Marseilles, & Palermo).  They saw more to gain in transporting other colonizers & their goods & were quite adept at forcing local tribes, as far as Cornwall & Sussex, to do their mining.  Not only did these Phoenicians establish trading posts all over the the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, Canary Islands, & British Isles.  They were also the first to circumnavigate Africa.  Star navigation was common among the Hamites & Semites for what are desserts but seas of sand.  Their ships brought goods from Africa, British Isles, India, & China. They were also famous for their stone cutting technology.


Other Hamitic Cushites fled eastward from Mesopotamia to what we now India via the Hindu-KUSH valley & established the first Indian civilization.  Aryan and other cultures refer to them as "Dravidians" (Sea People).  Like the Phoenicians they probably called themselves something else.  Durant writes, "The indications are that India was at it's heights when Cheops built the 1st great pyramid & that it had commercial, religious, & artistic connection with Sumeria & Babylonia". This supports my position that the Hamites were centrally dispersed from Mesopotamia & not Africa. Eventually the Aryans conquered the Dravidian territories & adopted much of their culture as their own.

Cushite Dravidians evidently expanded even to China & established Chinas' & Americas' first civilizations.  "Some elements of early Chinese art and industry appear to have come from Mesopotamia." - Durant [My own research on the I Ching (Chinese Book of Changes) confirms this.] Apparently Aryan & Shang oppression drove the Kushites southeast across the islands to Melanesia (dark ones), New Zealand, Australia, and so on.  Continuing eastward by sea via known currents would have been the next logical step.  Thus we are now finding traces of Dravidian Xia culture throughout the "New World" from.

Gavin Menzies argues that a huge Chinese fleet circumnavigated & charted the world years before the first great European voyages of discovery. The evidence for this comes in many different forms: from shipwrecks, ancient maps, to local peoples accounts, & DNA. It opens the door to evidence that black Chinese were here thousands of years ago.
