The thesis concerning the Egyptian origins of West African deities is very tenuous and has been ably refuted by historians. It is unfortunate that Afrocentric scholarship so often denies itself of the rigors of historiography, for underlying the attempt to connect everything somehow to Egypt (or to Kemet), lies an unwitting and unfortunate presumption that without some noble Egyptian connection there is somehow a lack of inherent value to truly Black African traditions.
