Dear Mr. Kwesi,
I'm writing this letter to you because I have discovered many of your teachings to be factually wrong and historically anachronistic. I have begun writing a number of critiques to your online videos at benstanhope.blogspot.com and I was hoping you would give an explanation or provide the appropriate primary documentation necessary to support many of your claims.
For example you claimed in your online video "The African Origins of Christianity" that Isis was a virgin when giving birth to Horus. Mr. Kwesi I have read the Egyptian myths and I have never come across a version in which Horus is born virginally.
My friend Chris White of zeitgeistchallenge.com is offering a 250 dollar reward to anyone who can substantiate a version of the Osirian myth which includes a virginal birth and the sister website at the below link is offering a 1000 dollar reward to anyone who can substantiate a virgin birth for Horus.
Will you please provide primary documentation for your claim?
You claimed that Horus was born in a manger. Mr. Kwesi, are you aware that the myths actually state that he was born in a swamp? The previous website I mentioned above is offering a large monetary reward to anyone who can demonstrate a manger narrative for Horus in an ancient text. Will you please provide primary documentation that Horus was born in a manger?
You claimed that Horus was born on December 25th. Are you aware that Horus was actually born on November 15th and that December 25th only became associated with Christ's birth in the fourth century? Again the two websites I referenced above are offering large cash rewards to anyone who can demonstrate a December 25th birth for Horus.
You stated “Osar got seventy two conspirators to crucify him". Sir, I understand that forms of crucifixion and hanging were utilized by the ancient Egyptians, but I can find no reference in ancient history that depicts a crucifixion version of the Osirian myth. May I ask that you provide me the primary documentation as to where you obtained this information.
In your "Origins of the Immaculate Conception" video you stated that the walls of the Ptah Soker Shrine were censored by Rome, but you then went on to tell your group what had originally been depicted on the walls. May I ask that you explain how you know what was originally depicted on the walls if they were censored in Roman times.
You said one relief depicted Isis riding a donkey then stated that this is a parallel with The Biblical Mary. Are you aware that Mary is never depicted riding a donkey in the Biblical texts?
At 1:55 seconds in your video you stated “Luke mentions it [the Immaculate Conception] only in terms of being clean. It literally means that only one man has entered her body.”
Are you aware that Luke 1:30-35 explicitly states that Mary was a virgin when she gave birth to Jesus and that no man at all had ever entered into her body?...
I would respectfully appreciate your response and explanation to these questions and others. If you do not respond I will appropriately arrive at the conclusion that you are being intellectually dishonest and that you are purposely making claims for which you do not have the necessary evidence or documentation.
As of this date Ashra has not responded.
