Terah's Nubian Ancestors<quoted text>
e1b1a covered the sahara from the nile to morocco. e1b1a groups like the mande have been in libya for many thousands of years.
that's why garamantes is also referred to as 'Ancient Mande of the Fezzan'. today the tuareg of libya (who are related to c-group nubians) are still nearly 50% e1b1a.
'the anu were ethiopians'? dude there's absolutely no proof linking the anu with ethiopia. these people came outta the sahara. and most modern WA came outta the sahara.
Also, the last out of Africa movement of Abraham's ancessters were via Ethiopia
Thank you for the reference to the article, "Abraham's Anu Ancestors," on the blog, Biblical Anthropology. I did some research on the Anu people, especially their origins. Based on your article, and on my research, the Anu people originated in Lybia, and then migrated into Lower and Upper Egypt where they built a number of cities, including the city of Annu (Heliopolis).
Over time, they migrated from Upper Egypt into Ethiopia, across the Red Sea to the southern regions of the Arabian peninsula, and then northward into Mesopotamia. The ancient city of Uruk I was an Anu settlement. This settlement lasted from 4000 B.C to 3000 B.C.
William K. Loftus, Engish Egyptologist, discovered the Anu Ziggurat during his excavations of the site between 1850-1854 A.D., and identified it with Uruk I, which was dedicated to the Anu "sky god". He found the Ziggurat under a number of other temples built over it. In Egypt, Horus is also identified as the "sky god." Terah, the father of Abraham, was a ruler-priest who worshiped Horus. His family migrated from Edfu, Egypt, across the Red Sea to the southwestern Arabian peninsula. Terah took his family from the southwestern Abrabia peninsula northward into Mesopotamia, and settled near Ur Kasdim, which was a few miles south of Uruk"
