If you are familiar with my work, you know the Jews or Israelites were pure Lower Egyptian. They were the Hyksos people of Ancient Egypt. If you ask most people where the Jewish religion comes from, they will tell you Israel. Israel was created May 14, 1948. The Jews have been around way longer than 71 years. All religions are full of smoke and mirrors. This just shows how much information has been lost in this world. Im about to uncover the answer to one of questions that even most Jews don’t know the answer too. Why do Jews not eat pork?
When I ask my Jewish friends why they don’t eat pork, they give me an answer like “Its a nasty filthy animal”, “It’s a sacrificed animal not meant for men to eat” or may favorite, a firm and resounding “I don’t know”. One friend of mine told me that starting in the 13th century Christians would put pictures of Jews suckling the teats of a sow in churches and public places and Martin Luther preached that the pig was the source of the Jews uncanny wisdom and power. So because infantile Christians were making fun of the Jews using a pig, Jews quit eating the animal. That kind of made sense to me because the Torah does not have any particular aversion the the pig. But with that kind of reasoning anytime someone was teased by being called a chicken, wouldn’t they would stop eating chicken? So I kept digging.
I came across Gerald Massey and he wrote about how ancient people had totem animals. These totem animals were very sacred to people and this is how people would not eat certain animals. The pig represented fertility and the Jews used the zootype of the pig as their totem animal. Manly P Hall even used this as his reason why Jews don’t eat pork. I thought this was going to be the best answer I could get. But then I came crossed this:
And Ra cursed the pig because of Set, and said, “Let the pig be an abomination to Horus.”
This was a coffin text. Gerald Massey wrote that it was a black pig and it represented dark and evil power. So I had to get my hands on this coffin text to find out for myself. Here it is:
Coffin Text: The Tale of Horus and the Pig, (c. 1900 B.C.): Why the Egyptians did not eat pork: “O Batit of the evening, you swamp-dwellers, you of Mendes, ye of Buto, you of the shade of Re which knows not praise, you who brew stoppered beer—do you know why Rekhyt [Lower Egypt] was given to Horus? It was Re who gave it to him in recompense for the injury in his eye. It was Re–he said to Horus: “Pray, let me see your eye since this has happened to it” [injured in the fight with Seth]. [Source: A. de Buck, “The Egyptian Coffin Texts,” (Chicago, 1918), p. 326, Internet Ancient History Sourcebook: Egypt, Fordham University]
Then Re saw it. Re said: “Pray, look at that injury in your eye, while your hand is a covering over the good eye which is there.” Then Horus looked at that injury. It assumed the form of a black pig. Thereupon Horus shrieked because of the state of his eye, which was stormy [inflamed]. Horus said: “Behold, my eye is as at that first blow which Seth made against my eye!” Thereupon Horus swallowed his heart before him [lost consciousness].
Then Re said: “Put him upon his bed until he has recovered.” It was Seth—he has assumed form against him as a black pig; thereupon he shot a blow into his eye. Then Re said: “The pig is an abomination to Horus.” “Would that he might recover,” said the gods. That is how the pig became an abomination to the gods, as well as men, for Horus’ sake…”
At last the reason why Jews do not eat pork. In their forgotten or hidden history of being Lower Egyptian, they have lost the reasoning. Pulled out of a text from 1900 B.C. is the true reason for not eating pork. If you still worship Horus, then by all means keep your dietary restriction, but if you do not worship Horus then what’s the use?
I know some of my readers are probably saying this is trivial, but if a group of religious people are doing things for reasons they don’t know or understand, what else are they doing for reasons they don’t know or understand? This has been a custom for almost 4,000 years and people follow it without question. It all goes back to Egypt.
