Geb and Nut themselves were creations of a higher, Supreme Diety in Egypt.

“The earliest evidence of ancient Egyptian thought about the beginning of things occurs incidentally in the pyramid texts. The fact is significant, because these texts are not concerend with the creation of the world but with the destiny after death of the kings of Egypt. The priests of Heliopolis, who composed the texts about 2480-2137 BC, drew upon traditions about their god Atum, whose temple at Heliopolis was one of the oldest cult centres in the land. Atum was a mysterious deity, whose name could mean ‘The not-yet-Completed One, who will attain (completion)’. He was identified with the sun-god Re, under the composite title of Atum-Re. Various passages in the pyramid texts reveal that the priests of Heliopolis believed there had been only a primordial waste of water, without shape or order, called Nun. The ‘first time’ started when Atum emerged from this primeval deep and began the work of creation.”
(Encyclopedia of World Mythology, Octopus Publishing 1975).

Atum is said to have created Geb and Nut, and the other procreated “deities”. These all seem more like personifications of the elements than actual ‘gods’. Religious doctine in ancient Egypt apparently took a form that is suspiciously like modern church doctines – loaded with political motive. Atum-ite priests were motivated to draw attention exhalt their own god’s supremacy in the Egyptian pantheon, in order to draw worship at the temple in Heliopolis. God is big business in Egypt. But Atumist claims were not without controversy or rebuttal:

“The Heliopolan cosmogeny seems to have provided a stimulus to the priesthoods of other great temples in Egypt. At Memphis, as we learn from the famous Shabaka Stone, now in the British Museum, the priests of the local god Ptah neatly rebutted the claims of Heliopolis by claiming that Ptah was the original creator and that he used Atum as his agent. This Memphite cosmogeny is more sophsticated in its imagery, and Ptah is represented as creating by the power of his magical word.” (ibid.)

Look up the Wikipedia entry for Ptah and you’ll read this: “Ptah is the creator god par excellence: He is considered the demiurge who existed before all things, and by his willingness, thought the world. It was first conceived by Thought, and realized by the Word: Ptah conceives the world by the thought of his heart and gives life through the magic of his Word. That which Ptah commanded was created, with which the constituents of nature, fauna, and flora, are contained. He also plays a role in the preservation of the world and the permanence of the royal function.

In the Twenty-Fifth Dynasty, the Nubian pharaoh Shabaka would transcribe on a stela known as the Shabaka Stone, an old theological document found in the archives of the library of the temple of the god at Memphis. This document has been known as the Memphite Theology, and shows the god Ptah, the god responsible for the creation of the universe by thought and by the Word.”

John 1:1 – In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life (ankh); and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not….And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth (Maat)!

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

Deuteronomy 8:3 – And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every [word] that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.

Psalm 33:6&9 – By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth… (9) For he spake, and it was [done]; he commanded, and it stood fast.

Hebrews 11:3 – Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.

2Peter 3:5&7- For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: (7) But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

Apparently the mythological focus in Egypt was not so much on the creation of human beings, rather the cosmos itself. The Mesopotamians and Hebrews were however, every concentrated on man’s origins. There is some evidence of how the Egyptians believed human were created, in a bas-relief commemorating the the birth of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1405-1370 BC)  at Luxor. In the relief, the Ram-headed fertility god Khnum is depicted as fashioning the infant king and his ka (soul) on a potter’s wheel, while the godess Hathor endows them with life. “According to a text of the 7th century BC ‘man is clay and straw’.” (ibid.) YHWH made Adam out of the earth (adamah) just as the Egyptian god Khnum made men out of clay.

The Potter is also in the Sacred Hebrew scriptures:
Isaiah 64:8 – But now, O LORD, thou [art] our father; we [are] the clay, and thou our potter; and we all [are] the work of thy hand.

Isaiah 41:25 – I have raised up [one] from the north, and he shall come: from the rising of the sun shall he call upon my name: and he shall come upon princes as [upon] morter, and as the potter treadeth clay.

Jerimaiah 18:2-6 – Arise, and go down to the potter’s house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words… O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay [is] in the potter’s hand, so [are] ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.

WORD SOUND POWER is a manifestation of the Power of Ptah – the God of the Hebrews who took a new name for Himself to separate from the Egyptians who hadfallen into political lust, denominational corruption and spiritual apostacy. Nothing new under the sun.

The modern name for Egypt comes from Ptah. “The English name Egypt derives from an ancient Egyptian name for Memphis, Hikuptah, which means “Home of the Soul of Ptah”. This entered Ancient Greek as Αιγυπτος (Aiguptos), which entered Latin as Ægyptus, which developed into English as Egypt.” (Wikipedia) Ptah is the essence of Egyptian origin.

Ptah creates the pots of mankind. He is a potter. And what do InI hold as sacrement?
Kaneh Bosm AKA Cannabis AKA POT!
Let’s check the etymology:

pot (n.1)
“vessel,” from late Old English pott and Old French pot “pot, container, mortar” (also in erotic senses), both from a general Low Germanic (cf. Old Frisian pott, Middle Dutch pot) and Romanic word from Vulgar Latin *pottus, of uncertain origin, said by Barnhart and OED to be unconnected to Late Latin potusdrinking cup.” Celtic forms are said to be borrowed from English and French.
pot (n.2)
“marijuana,” 1938, probably a shortened form of Mexican Spanish potiguaya “marijuana leaves.”

The chalice, the cup, the potter’s vessels, the kaneh bosm… its there in the linguistics.
Pot X Word + Sound + Power = Creation!
