“Among the many names Alkebu-lan [the ‘mother of mankind’ or ‘garden of eden’] was called are the following: ‘ETHIOPIA, CORPHYE, ORTEGIA, LIBYA,’ and ‘AFRICA’ — the latest of all. ‘ALKEBU-LAN’ is the oldest, and the only one of indigenous origin. It was used by the Moors, Nubians, Numidians, Khart-Haddans [Carthagenians] and Ethiopians. ‘AFRICA,’ the current misnomer adopted by almost everyone today, was given to this continent by the ancient Greeks and Romans.”
