Were ancient battles documented accounts of wars in the heavens?

Are Egyptologists slowly waking up? … I doubt it

Returning directly to the battles of the pharaohs.

My stance remains unwavering …

The 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. The Egyptians saw it 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.


I have every confidence in the God King Scenario to the extent that I have even thrown out a “find the battles” challenge to Egyptologists and/or archaeologists here. To date, there are no takers, which is hardly surprising since they are digging down whereas they should be looking up.

As mentioned I have written much on the proposition that ancient battles were in fact wars in the heavens and the links above provide a wealth of supporting material some of which I have briefly covered here. That being said, what I would like to do now is take a look at some more recent evidence that has come to light.

In fact, some battles depicted by later pharaohs, were actually campaigns of earlier kings whom the current pharaoh wished to emulate, while others depicted kings such as Amenhotep III and his son, Akhenaten smiting enemies when in fact they probably never personally participated in military actions at all.


Are they serious? So the earlier battles occurred but later ones were mere copies along with some of the iconic smiting scenes, how absurd!

Ramesses The Great Smiting an Enemy

Ramesses smiting. Assumed to be based on actual battles

By what criteria do scholars base their assumptions? It certainly isn’t physical evidence since that remains scant at best – it is based solely on the word of the ancients. Nowhere will you find the buried remains of the tens of thousands of soldiers that fell in battle, egyptian or otherwise – nowhere will you find mass ‘heroes graves’ or tombs inscribed “Here lies, Jon Doe, Killed in Action, fighting for pharaoh …” So much for honouring comrades in arms. A problem further compounded by the fact that the Egyptians had to be mummified and buried on Egyptian soil to stand any chance of an afterlife … So, where are the fallen, why weren’t they honoured?

The above speaks volumes and demonstrates how scholars struggle when it comes to the validity of ancient literary sources – they pick and choose what battles did or didn’t occur depending on how well documented the accounts seem to be. An example would be Ramesses the Great and the Battle of Kadesh – it is well documented on many temple walls via text and glorious reliefs so it must have occurred, whereas an image depicting Akhenaten smiting his enemies (mentioned above) could not had occurred because only one example exists … bad logic.

The Victory Stela of Amenhotep

Amenhotep winged disk ancient battles

Victory Stela of Amehotep (a kingly title given to Mars). Mars/Amehotep also appeared as a winged ‘sun’ disk as evidenced by his name carved below the winged orb.

The upper register of the stela shows Amenhotep III twice, offering Maät and wine to the sky god Amun. However, of interest here is the second register which shows two parallel scenes on which Amenhotep III is depicted in his chariot while defeating Syrian (Northern) and Nubians (Southern) enemies. In other words the pharaoh apparently undertook campaigns to the north and south (imagine the logistics?). Again, we ask the question, do the events depicted signify terrestrial wars as believed or could they be based on celestial wars as I contend?

In a paper titled The Victory Stela of Amenhotep III, History or Symbolism? Dutch historian Patrick van Gils poses the question whether or not these wars really happened.

The stela contains unique depictions of Amenhotep III as a warlike pharaoh. Since his reign was a largely peaceful period, the question is whether these scenes commemorate actual military victories of Amenhotep III or that they should be regarded as depicting purely symbolical victories.

His conclusion.

The stela shows Amenhotep III in his role as enforcer of the cosmic order, Maät, and should be regarded as symbolic and not historical.

So there you have it, the battles etched in stone and credited to Amenhotep didn’t happen!

This Horus king didn’t march 600 miles north across scorching hot deserts with 20,000 soldiers (average) to vanquish the Syrians – nor did he trek for months on end to bash up the Nubians in the south despite what the text and art says (who on earth guarded the back door when the warrior kings were away fighting?).

So what’s the difference between Amenhotep’s battle scenes and ones carved by other prominent pharaohs such as Ramesses the Great? Devoid of physical evidence how can anybody tell the difference between what represents real events and what is essentially fiction? Could the ancients tell the difference? Of course they could, to them there was absolutely no ambiguity; they bore witness to a constant state of war in the heavens.

All such scenes, whether smiting an enemy, chariot charging or otherwise, were indicative of red orbed errant bodies in the guise of divine Horus kings (retitled many times over) observed in the act of perennially fighting to maintain divine order in the cosmos (maat). To us, ancient cultures were recording the many phases of the Heavy Bombardment epoch (RHB) which lasted about three thousand years, the duration of Pharaonic Egypt.

As can be appreciated there is so much more to this.

More to follow as I further investigate ancient battles.
