“There are no Gods in Kemet!”

Lecture by Akinjide Bonotchi Montgomery

The term NTR, with vowels spelled Netcher, has been too often miss-translated as “God“. Translating Netcher as god has become common practice, this practice was started by early European translators. The practice of mistranslating NTR as “God” has continued because of convention not because of the accuracy of the translation. In this discussion and presentation we will examine the term NTR/Netcher from an African worldview; this will enable us to find English words and concepts that more accurately express what the Africans of Kemet meant.

    Baba Bonotchi offers a compelling exploration on the concept of Ntcr (Netcher, Neter, Ntr), what some refer to as divinity in English, but may be more accurately thought of as the “the all” or the totality of actuality and possibility. His analysis emphasizes an inescapable truth, that to truly understand the culture of ancient Kmt, we must study the language (Mdw Ntchr) as a medium to understand the ideas of the culture. He maintains that concepts of “God” or “gods/goddesses” as derived from other cultures are insufficient to fully conceptualize the Kemetic paradigm of Ntchr, and that these concepts, if approached from a forthright engagement with the texts of Kmt reveal a degree of philosophical complexity that offers profound insights in the culture of the ancient Nile Valley (Hapy Itrw).
