Khem is not what the Ancient Egyptians used to refer to their country. It's KMT (Kemet), meaning Black Land. And no not black land because the people there were goddamn spooks, like every other black nationalist piece of shit is so fond of doing. Don't be ridiculous. It refers to the fertile soil on the banks of the Nile.
Furthermore, the etymology of the word 'Chemistry' is heavily argued over, just like every other word. Some say it's Greek in origin, maybe Arabic, others Egyptian, some times Persian, but to simply wave it off as Egyptian is ignorance. It is a word in the English language, hence it is an English word. Treat it like one and stop giving it special status because (gasp) black people invented it. (note: the ancient Egyptians were not black)
And naming your child after something you don't even know about demonstrates ignorance and lack of historical understanding. You're like black people who name their kids Shaka, not knowing that Shaka means intestinal worm and was used to denote that he, the historical figure, was an unwanted child.
Get your facts straight, dumbass. I hope your white guilt-ridden ass gets robbed by the very son you adopted.
I never said it's what the Egyptians referred to their country as, dumbass.
You are right it means 'black land' (ie. the land around the Nile river AKA EGYPT), this was further adopted by the early Greeks as a way of referring to Egypt. It's a Western way of referring to Egypt. Bringing up Black nationalism is just petty racism at this point.
The Oxford dictionary (the most reliable dictionary in the world) still mentions that the word Chemistry and Alchemy are derived from this Greek root. The Persian and etc derivations is just recently conjecture and has no basis in linguistic reality. When did I say the Egyptians were Black anyways? I don't remember bringing that up. It's just the only African nation I have substantial knowledge of.
Go troll elsewhere, kiddo. You can't hang with me.
