"The Ethiopians of the Bible are not the Ethiopians of today. When the Bible speak of Ethiopians, they spoke of pure, Black, tall, robust Africans similar in looks to Mandinkas, Yorubas, Nubas, Nuer, Kikuya and people who had not yet mixed with the invaders from the Semitic lands.May I tell you that Ethiopia was the name adopted in the course of history while the historical name is Habasha (Abyssinia). Ethiopia is the name which your fathers or forefathers took away from Cush people . Abyssinia is just the corrupted form of Habasha .The leaders renamed themselves “Ethiopia” because of the term’s significance in the bible historical relationship between the Cush peoples of the Horn of Africa and the Middle East. The clergy wrote legends, not history, to alienate the name from Cush people and to use it for their own purpose. This was what the clergy did during the medieval period. In summary one can say you took our land, our history and even our historical name. Ethiopia (lit. black people) was the name given to Cush people by the Greeks not to the Semitic people who were latecomers to the Horn of Africa from beyond the Red Sea.

-how do you come to the conclusion that the Ethiopians of today, are not the Ethiopians of the Bible. How can you prove this assertion?
"When the Bible speak of Ethiopians, they spoke of pure, Black, tall, robust Africans similar in looks to Mandinkas, Yorubas, Nubas, Nuer, Kikuya and people who had not yet mixed with the invaders from the Semitic lands"
-again how is this proven, and what is the significance of this point.
