The Non-Existent Battles of the Pharaohs – Evidence in Support of the GKS (gks 7)

The Non-Existent battles of the Egyptian Pharaohs – A Challenge!

Pharaoh Smiting EnemyHistory teaches us that Egypt was a warring nation; a large army was big business. It wasn’t required for defence as the Egyptians did not want peace; peace was not a virtue. It was the role of the pharaoh to lead his army to conquer foreign lands and return home with the spoils of war.

Many battles were recorded for posterity on temple walls and some, such as Ramesses II and the battle of Kadesh, were repeated many times. The sacred inscriptions provided details of the many pharaohs who fearlessly fought off and defeated the enemy, sometimes single-handedly.

“The King himself led the way of the army, mighty at its head, like a flame of fire, the king who wrought with his sword. He went forth, none like him, slaying the barbarians, smiting Retenu, bringing their princes as living captives, their chariots, wrought with gold, bound to their horses.”

The battle accounts were accompanied by images of the pharaohs in the act of ‘smiting the enemy.’ The enclosed illustrations are typical of the many recurring scenes which depicted the pharaoh with mace raised ready to vanquish the enemy. Such scenes echoed the mythical conflict between the gods Horus and Seth in the continuing battle of good against evil. This archetypal image can be found in scenes from Egypt through to the fertile-crescent and Anatolia. Some refer to this scene as ‘God with the Upraised Arm.’

FACT: Despite the many hundreds of military expeditions carried out by the pharaohs over a 3,000 period archaeologists have been unable to verify ANY of the events recounted in Egyptian records. This, despite the fact that we know the exact location of many of Egypt’s Pharaonic battles (Megiddo).

Pharaoh Smiting EnemiesThe GKS contends that all pharaonic wars, military campaigns and border skirmishes are ALL time honoured accounts of the countless cosmic battles (RHB) undertaken by Mars, Mercury and the Moon (rarely queen Venus) in the guise of divine warrior kings, as they fought and appeared to defeat the masses upon masses of enemy space debris that engulfed our solar system only a few thousand years ago. It was seen as a perennial battle between the forces of good and light (Horus) and the forces of evil and darkness (Seth) as the enemy many times threatened to block out the sun god Ra. This was the very same dust and debris that turned the Sun red for over three millennia. To further appreciate the God King Scenario please click here.

Before we progress, I would like to make something very clear; I’m not for one moment contending the earthly Egyptians never engaged in warfare, they undoubtedly did, as evidenced by the later occupation of foreign rulers such as the Greeks and Romans (although the evidence seems to suggest these guys just walked in and took over) and some sparse archaeological evidence which we will consider later. The key here is, and will always be, the ‘sacred’ inscriptions. To reiterate, sacred images and text all recount cosmic events of above and have little if anything to do with proceedings here on earth. It is the very reason why hieroglyphs were considered sacred. I would further add, it would be impossible to record and humanise cosmic conflicts unless conflicts were actually experienced here on earth.

Egypt’s battles and wars, where is the archaeological evidence?

I will shortly present what I consider to be irrefutable archaeological evidence in support of my thesis (more specifically, the lack of it) but first allow me to set the scene by taking a look at some of the oddities surrounding the battles of the pharaohs. The following will be brief and I refer you to my book for a more in depth analysis.

Impossible Logistics?

The record shows numerous kings marched north in to Syro-Palestine. How was it possible for 20,000 soldiers to march some 600 miles plus for months on end across the scorching hot Sinai desert, barefoot and wearing nothing more than a loincloth? To keep thousands of men (and animals) fed, watered, clean and free from disease would have required a superhuman feat on a scale bordering on divine intervention. Yet, if the annals are anything to go by, the Egyptians seem to have managed this impossible feat hundreds of times over with military campaigns north-east into Syro-Palestine. Sometimes, as in the case of Tuthmosis III eighteen consecutive campaigns undertaken in Syria in as many years. Some accounts even recall Egyptian troops carrying boats across distant desert lands in order to engage the enemy. How on earth was this done?

Impossible logistics simply disappear when invoking the GKS.

Errant planetary bodies in the guise of divine warrior kings were observed with vast swarms of moons, asteroids and boulders trailing in their wake, these were the legions of foot soldiers dutifully following the king into battle. They were the celestial doubles (souls/kas) of people here on earth – the Egyptians knew them as their kas (See The Egyptian Dualism).

“He shall be at the head of all the kas of the living.”

Thutmose III: The Napata Stela.

Kings and infantry were observed crashing headlong into swarms of enemy space debris to the north, south, east and west, thus perceived to extend the borders of Upper and Lower Egypt, heaven and Earth.


“I made the boundaries of Egypt as far as that which the sun encircles. I made strong those who were in fear; I repelled the evil from them. I made Egypt the superior of every land […] favorite of Amun, Son of Re, of his body, his beloved Thutmose I, Shining like Re.”

By way of sacred inscriptions and images the earthly Egyptians honoured their celestial counterparts (kas) by meticulously recording each and every conflict on temple walls.

Tutankhamun (Mars)

“Perfect god, likeness of Re (sun), who appears over foreign lands like the rising of Re, who destroys this land of vile Kush, who shoots his arrows against the enemy.”

They humanised them and gave them the only perspective they could, through that of the natural world. Essentially, we have an ‘as above, so below’ situation. For example; if Egypt’s foes were hundreds miles to the north across the blistering Sinai desert and Pharaonic Mars was observed waging war against space debris above these foreign lands, then, whatever it took to reach this location on earth, it was played out in the annals as such. In other words, what happened above was drawn from the world below; only above, superhuman feats were very much possible.

Tutankhamun Smiting EnemyPlanetary god kings riding golden chariots with loyal infantry in tow, traversed the heavens with relative ease, impossible logistics simply disappeared. No watering holes required, no supply route stretching back to Egypt required, no beasts of burden or horses to look after; food just wasn’t a problem. Consequently, hunger, malnutrition and staying free from disease simply disappeared in the divine magical world above. Even the numbers of infantry could be exaggerated i.e. 20,000 or 40,000 infantry traversing above the blistering deserts for months on, defeating the ‘vile Asiatics,’ and returning home in record time becomes completely plausible. This is, of course, from our modern day perspective, to the ancients it was a different story. What they saw were planetary kings, who by their very location were deemed intermediaries between heaven and earth (Upper & Lower Egypt), battling to maintain ‘divine order’ (ma’at) by fearlessly charging into and vanquishing vast swarms of enemy space debris – thus clearing a path to the gods, the ‘next world’ and a life of immortality. The very reason why everything had to go through the Pharaoh. These cosmic wars symbolically represented in the iconic ‘smiting scenes’ carved on numerous temples walls (See the photos on this page).

Leading the army from the front

Pharaohs adopted the most ridiculous battle tactic that any modern day commanding officer would cringe at, that of leading the army from the front.

“The King himself led the way of the army, mighty at its head, like a flame of fire, the king who wrought with his sword.”

Is this possible? Yes, but highly unlikely!

Ramesses Smiting EnemyThe Pharaoh was Egypt; kings were worshipped as gods, they were intermediaries between heaven and earth, the mortal and the divine. Without the king it was believed the whole cosmos would fall into chaos; without the king there was no Egypt. Despite this fundamental belief Egypt’s kings thought it would be a good idea to risk this godly status and by extension Egypt itself by, not only vacating Egypt for many months, but also potentially setting themselves up to be first in line to die – by leading the army from the front!

Common sense dictates with such beliefs and absurd tactics Egypt’s foes would be guaranteed certain victory by simply killing the king (‘cutting off the head’ springs to mind). A task make easy, in that you’d be blind to miss him; he’s the one leading the charge in a golden chariot, wearing very distinctive attire including a large blue crown adorned with a rearing cobra. I know who I’d be aiming for to bring this battle to a swift end and you certainly wouldn’t need to pin a bulls eye on him.

As mentioned above, planetary bodies in chaos naturally led from the front with vast legions of gravitationally tied asteroids and comets trailing in their wake; planetary bodies were “mighty at the head.” Pharaonic planets led the charge literally “like a flame of fire,” not humans. Such descriptions are clear alluding to celestial bodies. See here for more epithets clearly referring to astral kings. (Image above shows Ramesses dispatching a few foes).

Egypt, 3,000 year of warring; Pharaohs killed in action … none!

Hundreds of wars, battles and border skirmishes over a period of three thousand years and yet no pharaoh ever lost a battle. This, as we have just discussed, despite the fact that they all led from the front.


No Pharaoh ever lost a battle because they were all guises of Mars, Mercury and the Moon and these warrior bodies were no match for the lesser armies of ‘enemy’ asteroids and comets. The celestial warrior kings literally crashed headlong into these and swallowed them up with ruthless efficiency. Although now mere specs of light in the night sky (apart for the Moon), these warriors are still with us and remain undefeated to this day. The surfaces of these planets bear witness to a time when they fought and hoovered up countless tons of ‘evil’ debris that threatened to blot out the sun (Re) and bring the whole world into chaos. The enemy (and ordinary Egyptians) are always depicted smaller than the king because as boulders and space debris they were.

Not a scratch!

Not only were they never defeated all fighting Pharaohs returned home without a scratch. Ramesses the Great, Tuthmosis III (Egypt’s Napoleon) Seti and many other warriors to this very day lie in the Cairo museum showing no signs of engaging in battle. No severed limbs, missing fingers, skin abrasions or battle scared faces (many have been x-rayed). In fact, it is believed (as in the case of Ramesses II and Amenhotep III) they probably died of tooth decay (So much for living gods!). This just doesn’t make sense, how is it possible to lead vast armies from the front, engage the enemy in a bloody battle and return home without a scratch?

Warrior kings reveal no physical sign of battle because these are the earthly representatives of celestial bodies. The true warrior kings were guises of the planets Mars, Mercury and the Moon (GKS). It is with these bodies where we will find the illusive ‘battle’ scars. Take a look at the surfaces of Mars, Mercury and the Moon, they are all pot marked with millions of impact craters. Especially the Moon, the Moon has to be singled out for it has been pummelled by space debris over and over again. It bears the hallmarks of numerous cosmic battles, or as I contend, the pharaonic wars as carved for posterity on numerous temples walls along the Nile.
