is this article supposed to be about ANE religion itself, or about reconstructionist movements? If the former, the reconstructionists are at best of passing relevance, and it should focus at explaining the religions themselves. dab () 11:44, 24 August 2005 (UTC)

Egyptian religion is not middle eastern[edit]

The religion of ancient egypt developt out of the religion of two older purely African cultures, the Sudanic religion (a monotheistic religion of Nilo-Saharan speaking people) and the henotheistic religion of the Afro-Asiatic people. The word Afro-Asiatic here referes to the language family, which is of purely African origin. Only one branch of it (the Semites) migrated into Asia, hence the name. The Semites are not the ancestors of the ancient Egyptians, so the inclusion of Egypt among the middle eastern cultures is questionable, See:
