Egypt

1. What does NTR(god) mean?
Something Animated/Living/Shaking/Agitated? (Nathar in Hebrew, connoting Natron)?
A Stranger? (Nakir in Arabic)?

Loose connotation: Nut(heavens) + Ra (sun)
Secondary Meaning: Something Pure

2. Did Egyptians have Monotheism?
Yes, some did (see eg. Gen. 41 & 2 Chron. 35; Works of E. Budge and Jim Allen)

3. Which Egyptian gods most resemble the supreme, ultimate god like Jehovah or Shang Di?
NTR (in Budge's explanation of NTR in monotheism)
Amun (the Hidden One)
Ptah (the Fashioner, Opener)

4. Did ETs, paranormal forces or lost advanced technology help make the pyramids or grow Egypt?
No direct, solid evidence of this, only guesses or hypotheses by some like Graham Hancock

5. Are amazing discoveries waiting in Egypt?
Yes, if you find Egyptology's discoveries that we have so far like King Tut's tomb amazing. I hope they dig for the hidden rooms in and around the Great Pyramid

6. Cool movies about Egypt
Gods of Egypt
Cosmos spacetime odyssey

7. Cool games
Age of Mythology
Age of Pyramids

8. Ongoing interest or traces
Coptic Churches
Museums

Bonus Question: Which is older: Egyptian, Sumerian, or Indus Civilization?

And before you answer, note that Nekhen was the capitol of pre-dynastic Egypt.
  • The original settlement on the Nekhen site dates from the culture known as Naqada I of 4400 BC or the late Badarian culture that may date from 5000 BC. At its height from about 3400 BC, Nekhen had at least 5,000 and possibly as many as 10,000 inhabitants.
