In 1974, something unusual happened in Ethiopia.
It was in 1974 when science began to validate the claim that Ethiopia was indeed near or associated with the Garden of Eden, as written in the biblical chapter of Genesis in paragraph 2:13.
The three million year old fossil that became known as Lucy, found in 1974 in the Afar region, linked this country as near the cradle of life, where human evolution occured, and sparked scientific and religious controversy.
The year 1974 was when also the Ethiopian ruling monarchy and its king, the proclaimed descendents of King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, were forced from power by a regime that would impose a disastrous form of Soviet-sponsored communism.
Millions of Ethiopians would perish.
What happened in 1974 in Ethiopia has forever changed the religious, scientific, and political landscape of world history.
Yet, little attention has been made to associate these two events.
Whether this was a mere coincidence or an act of "divine synchronicity" --- what is certain, is that Ethiopia offers a rich and unique history that extends beyond these two events. It also extends the legacy of a movement recognized as Ethiopianism.
