Atom Is A Cognate Of Atumu And Atamu


Edited by Wilson Ometan (Circa 2004)

The word Atamu is derived from Atumu. In a simplistic definition; Atamu is the solidarity we need as a platform in order to create, procreate, produce, develop and exist as a nation of many principalities of Urhobo amongst other races in a world where survival of the fittest is a by-word. Nigeria, a country of 394 languages surely has varying cultures that could be dubbed in today's language as complex complexities if you will excuse my language.

Among these cultures we may find some as indolent or lazy, thieves, murderous, oppressives, political houseboys, kingmakers, king-unmakers, spies, aristocrats, democrats and liberals. Of these, Urhobos are known to be liberals or appears to align with such. Where-as Urhobo is said to be 6th or 7th largest ethnic group in Nigeria with 22 Cultural units; such numeric strength does not translate into political equation of strength in Nigeria. What is evident are the naivety, docility and nonchalance among us with our leaders at the forefront. There are traits of the causes of such attitudes in us; insecurity due to perennial self subjugation, ignorance of our heritage, ignorance orchestrated by personal insecurity to name a few. The pride of the American, German, English and the Roman is attached to their Nationalism. Nationalism in the sense that the ordinary people know their past history of Wars, Creativity, inventions, manufacture and Religion.

To my amazement, I discovered in ancient history that their Nationalist pride was actually authenticated and originated by Urhobo fore-fathers and mothers in Ancient Egypt. And surprisingly, the western world developed their culture on the horse back of Urhobo. I am still amazed how they deceived our Professors and Clerics into believing that the western culture is authentic and original separate from the Ancient Egyptians. Our Scholars read Greek and Roman history with relish but annoyingly refused to see the similitude in our gods, goddesses and ancient history as foundation for civilization today.


The riddle of the Sphinx has confounded generations of tourists and experts alike. Who built it, why, and what does it mean? Now a leading Egyptologist believes that he has pieced together the puzzle. After researching the pyramids of the Giza Plateau and their imposing half-human, half-animal guardian for 20 years, Vassil Dobrev of the French Archaeological Institute in Cairo has concluded that the Sphinx was the work of a forgotten pharaoh. For many years, it has been held that Khafre (Khevren), a king of the Fourth Dynasty whose pyramid sits behind the Sphinx, built the monument in his own likeness. But Mr. Dobrev believes the Sphinx was in fact created more than four and a half thousand years ago by Djedefre (Djedevren), Khafre's half brother and the son of Khufu (Khuvu), the builder of the Great Pyramid at Giza. When Khufu died, the people of ancient Egypt were weary; having spent decades building pyramids, says Mr. Dobrev. He argues that Djedefre, who succeeded Khufu as pharaoh, built the monument in the image of his father, identifying him with the sun god Ra, as a piece of propaganda to restore respect for the dynasty. The names of these Pharaohs are in Urhobo language. Source: www.news.independent.co.uk

ATUMU, a word in Urhobo meaning “The first to be, Stand, or Created etc.” is the same word which evolved to be known today as: ATUM (ATOM). Atom is the smallest particle of a chemical element that can exist alone or in combination. Atomic theory states that investigations proved that the smallest unit of a chemical substance such as water is a molecule. Each molecule of water consists of a single atom of oxygen and two atoms of hydrogen joined by an electrical force called a “chemical bond”.

Indeed, the Universe and sun is made up of Hydrogen and Helium. Physicists have measured the weights of these atoms precisely—7Li has a weight of 7.018242 amu ; 1H, 1.008137 amu ; and 4He, 4.003910 amu . The weights on the left side of the equation add up to 8.026379 amu , whereas those on the right side total 8.007820 amu ; a “loss” of 0.018559 amu has occurred. Using Einstein's E = mc2 relation, 1 amu is found to be the equivalent of 931.3 million electron volts (MeV) of energy. On this basis the nuclear reaction with lithium releases 17.28 MeV of energy. The “lost” mass appears as energy in the form of the violent motion of the helium nuclei. This sounds like a breakdown of Atamu or Atumu. ATAMU = Atum + Amu (Atom and Atomic Theory, Microsoft (R) Encarta).

In Urhobo, we also say Orotumudia or Orotumu as a verb to denote the first to be. In the history of Ancient Egypt which civilised the world, it is said that during Creation of the world; in the beginning there was vast ocean of water called Nun (Enu). Suddenly a hill sprang up one day and was promptly named Ben-Ben by the Supreme God (Is it the Tongue). On this hill stood a god call Atum (ATUMU), the first god. Then he coughed and spat out Shu, the god of Air which the Urhobo ethnic group exclaim to, and Tefnut (Otahvenu) the goddess of moisture. These two gods had two children, Geb (Kebeh) of the earth and Nut (Anuteh) goddess of the sky. Shu lifted Nut up so that she formed a canopy for Geb. Also; in the famous Bible, it is quoted that in the beginning god said, let us create man in our own image. In secret books which the public is not allowed to see, that god was Atumu (Atum) telling other gods of Osiris (Asiri, Esiri, Isis (Isi, Edjo, Ptah, Okpotah, etc. to start the process of human creation. Please note: “atomic weight” is measured in amu. (In processes that occur within the nuclei of atoms, such as nuclear fission, mass is converted into energy.) In other words, Atom (Atum) plus Amu makes the solidarity or Atamu of the fusion of two Hydrogen elements and an Oxygen Atom. Remember, Atumu in the Ancient Egyptian creation of the world suddenly stood on the first hill which is called Benben.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Benben is the origin of the name Benin till-date. And in Benben evolution, a bird which is called Benue stood on the Benben & the bird became symbolic of the first hill. Interestingly, Hydrogen, helium and other gasses makes up (Atumu) the Sun which our ancestors promptly named “Re” or Uvo.

Here; I commend our father and sociologist, Mr. Onigu Otite for his book; The Urhobo People where he quoted the narrative by Mr. Arawore who referred to the works of a former Education Officer in Warri, Mr. K.B Forge (A white Man). He noticed the similarities in the archaeological finds and place names in Egypt and such parts of Urhoboland as Okpara and Uhwokori in Agbon. I think that Mr. Forge meant Okpara-Amen, the latter; Amen (Amon) has origin in Ancient Egypt, meaning the Moon god. Truly, the moon controls the movement of the Waters, Rivers and Oceans. There are other images and names which were originated by our forebears in Ancient Egypt. For instance, the Evwa (Evba, Book of Thot, Thotah, Oracle) which culminates the Bible today was involved in the rituals by initiates under the great pyramid. The freemasons still practise these rituals today in a ceremony of sipping “Adibhuta (Sounds like drinking truth juice in Urhobo), the juice of a sacred plant, and ate bread, and the book of the dead (Irivwin) calls that ceremony as Gyotishoma, Agnishtoma” (Sounds like Gionashatoma, Agoshatoma), (The Secret in the Bible, Tony Bushby, pg267) Now we know the origin of Christ and the disciples' last supper.

Akka is a name we know of in Urhobo as place of origin. Those in possession of Akka people's historical facts in present day Benin are either pretending not to know or there is a conspiracy to hide the facts surrounding the exodus of Urhobos from Ancient Egypt including the Benin of today. We know the origin of the land of present day Benin as Akka land. That is not the best we can tell. But we have two Akka, One with double K, the other with one k, i.e. Akka and Aka. First, Akka in ancient Egypt means the Object in which God gave us, i.e. our forefathers the Divine letters (Sacred text known as Evba (Evwa, Oracle). The Evba has 22 letters which contains the famous Torah of the Bible. It is this Akka (Both Spirituality and the cocrete Object) that was stolen to Saudi Arabia, put in a square Stele which the Muslims worship today. It is this same Akka they added Ma or Me (Ma + akka, Me + akka) to be known as Makka, Mecca today. Secondly, the other Aka denotes the Lion. Images of Aka in Egypt includes rows of squatting Lions and the Sphinx. Its these rows of Aka that formed the Name Akanaka. The Urhobo indigenes are conversant with the literal meaning of Akanaka.

And Culturally, Akka is the triangler object on the Great Pyramid first built by the King (Pharaoh) Khuffu (Khuvu), an Urhobo of today's calculation but was known then as of Akka ethnic group. Akka ethnic group comprises of Ijaw, Hausa , Benin , Itsekiri, Ibo, Urhobo and Yoruba. The Yoruba later joined the Akka people from their original land of Sudan to Egypt but something tells me that the word Akka might also have its origin in Yoruba because Akka in Yoruba probably have something to do with counting which may involve the counting of the divine texts ( Please don't take my word for the Yoruba aspect of it ). Secret: The Akka holds a serpent which in-turn houses the divine letters of God. Conflicts it appears will never end between the Itsekiris, Ijaws and Urhobos, pity. Amen (Amon, Amun) a city in central Egypt was changed from its Amen (Amon, Amarna) original name to Akhetaten by Pharaoh Akhenaten {An Itsekiri mixed blood also of Jewish parentage} (Akhenaten: Akhe is the Child of Aten, [Aten means light of the Sun rays], variant of Yoruba Aton).

Amen as we know means water in Urhobo. Amun (Amon) on the other hand literally also means “Coming”. When the sun rises, it is coming through the equator to the West from the East. When the Sun is overhead (Temu), the serpent is visible on the Great pyramid. The Sun also has Solar energy. So, when the Sun is rising, Akka people will say the sun is (Amon or ra ) coming. This Amun and Ra is evident in our language today when we say: Yan ra' [accented A] (walk to me) or Mon (Mun) or come in Urhobo which literally means show your light. In Uvwie, Sha' re_ [under score E] means go away but Sha' ra means walk to me. Notice the difference between Ra and Re. Ra means come, Re means go. This explains the difference in the spellings of Ancient Egyptians who are Urhobos referring to the Sun god. Uvwie and indeed Urhobos still hold the culture. But the Ilaje ethnic group of Yoruba combined the Sun god and Moon god together to be: AmonRa (Amonora, He who knows the way). Indeed, Ra has evolved to sun rays. It is very very likely that the name Solomon is a combination of Solar and Amon (Solar-Amon). It is also likely that the Cult-initiates under the great pyramid undergo the process of rituals when the Sun is on the overhead in Ancient Egypt hence the collective references of materials ascribed to Moses (Akhenaten) who got his Maagi (Maagi: In Yoruba, I will awaken the elementals) Magic books from his father Solomon (Amhonotope, a title of Urhobo: Amontephe: Amontefe Chief).

FURTHER EVIDENCE OF UVWIE CULTURE: In the Book of Genesis (Gene of Isis) I stumbled on Genesis 23: verses 16-17. Excerpt and quote: And Abraham hearkened unto Ephron; and Abraham weighed to Ephron the Silver, which he (Ephron) had named in the audience of the sons of Heth {Hate?} actually children of Joseph-8th in number of Jacob children, the 9th is Benue (Benjamin), four hundred shekels of silver, current money with the merchant. And the field of Ephron, which was in Machpelah (Masepela [ Curse] ? In Yoruba language?), which was before Mamre (Mamre: means we see in Uvwie language), the field, and the cave which was therein, and all the trees that were in the field, that were in all the borders round about, were made sure. Endquote. In the text above, Abraham, Ephron and Mamre are significant. Ephron (Effurun) is an Uvwie town, Mamre in Uvwie language literally means we see. Incidentally, the original name given to Ekpan town by the fore bears amongst a list of Uvwie towns was Yoree, later changed to Toree. Yoree or Toree means you see or you have seen or found. A name originated by the daughter of Okperibor who was Sister to the founder of Ekpan, Chief Edjekuvwie Okperibor. Her name is Aderewa who got married to an Itsekiri man known as Itsei from Ugbenu'Ohworu and they both begat Evboriere, also known as Iyayi (Eyaye).

However, the British Treaty with the Chiefs of Yoree 1893 also agreed with this history of Toree as a given name at one time in our history. ( Yes, this is a fact and I'm not hallucinating ). www.waado.org/UrhoboHistory/BritishColonialRule/ColonialTreaties/ColonialTreaties.html.

Abraham on the other hand; has two syllables in its pronunciation. The first syllable Abra is a name found among Ghanaians. Their accent is similar to the Malevi, i.e. the Southern Africans. And Ham literally means the burnt one. It is a fact that the Ghanaians just like their counterpart Malians are darker than the rest of us which means that they are more burnt by the sun. Curiously the Ga ethnic group of Edo migrated to Ghana in 1443 or thereabout.


To my astonishment, the story of Genesis 23 concerning Abraham and the quest for a piece of land to bury his wife and his sojourn in that area is also found in the tomb of the Ancient Egyptian King Rekhmire [1500 B.C.] (Some historians call him a Vizier instead of king). Also curiously, Rekhmire is also a name the inhabitants of the Warri-Ephron (Effurun) radius still maintain till-date.

What the narrative in the tomb of Rekhmire means is that, the story which existed in 1500 B.C. was actually lifted into the Bible by a group of people, Nigerians of Ancient Egypt, i.e. Ezra (Eze Ra, real Name is Osasiphe, Osesefe, an Urhobo Chieftaincy Title) and his group of Scribes. We now know how at least we Nigerians wrote some parts of the Bible. We must think deep.
