The discovery of twin pyramids and a sphinx in Zinder, Niger has caught the attention of Egyptologists and pyramid experts around the world. This is the first English report of that discovery.

Dr. Clyde Winters refers to this as the "Proto-Saharan Civilization." The Proto-Saharans venerated cattle and left behind engraving of bulls and calves with the solar disc between their horns. This image was associated with Hathor, the virgin who conceived by the overshadowing of the sun, the emblem of the Creator. Her son was Horus. She was the patroness of South Arabian metal workers as has been shown by discoveries at Timna. A temple dedicated to Hathor was discovered at the southwestern edge of Mt. Timnah by Professor Beno Rothenberg of Hebrew University.
Abraham's Nilotic ancestors considered Horus the "Seed" of Ra because Hathor was said to conceive when she was overshadowed by the Sun. In the oldest known Messianic tradition the Son of God is born as a calf to Hathor who is portrayed as a sacred cow, and the birth took place in a stable with the Babe sleeping in a crib. Horus was portrayed in images as the golden calf appointed to rule by his father who was represented by the sun. His image is referenced in Exodus 32.
The oldest known site of Horus worship is the shrine city of Nekhen in Sudan. It dates to the time of the pyramid discovered by Souley Garba, if Garba's dating is reliable. Garba claims that the pyramid of Dan Baki is 4500 years old. It is in an advanced state of deterioration, but was not open when it was discovered by Garba.

Mr. Garba reports that this discovery is the "result of our activities we have been carrying out over 7 years and with a private institute of the United States of America." Garba explained that years of study of the hieroglyphic texts led him to the name of the village where he discovered the pyramid. He believes that the point of origin of humanity is in Niger. From there people spread into Chad, Nigeria, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen and Saudi Arabia. He has not attempted to explain the presence of more ancient monuments in Southern Africa, Turkey and China.
Study of the ancient hieroglyphic texts reveals a close affinity between Ancient Egyptian and Hausa. The names Tanout and Dar-Gaza constantly recur in the hieroglyphic texts that Garba studied. Ta-nout means "belongs to the sky." Dar-Gaza means "crown of God" and refers to the sun. Gaza is a variant of
Hausa is in the Afro-Asiatic language group. This group includes Akkadian, Ancient Egyptian, Arabic, Aramaic, Amharic, Babylonian, Chadic, Ethiopic, Hahm/Jaba, Hebrew, Phoenician, Sumerian and Ugartic. The diversity of this group is amazing! Chadic alone has 600 dialects.
The pyramid builders of Zinder reflect a very ancient kingdom-building tradition among Abraham's Nilo-Saharan ancestors. Here is Sanounou Ybrah's 3D reconstruction of the pyramid and sphinx showing the pyramid and sphinx in degradation state at Dan Baki in Zinder (Niger).
Here's another interesting fact: Niger has grown 200 million trees over the past two decades - the only country in Africa to have added forest cover in the same period.
