Melanin Myth #3: Melanin Is Carbon

This is part three in a ten-part series debunking myths surrounding melanin.

Dr. Ishakamusa Barashango solved the mystery of 666 too long ago for us to go through this again.

A myth and urban legend

The “Melanin is carbon and has a molecular structure of six protons, six neutrons and six electrons that equal 666 or the mark of the beast” myth is one of the easier melanin myths to debunk. It just goes to show the manufacturers of these myths really haven’t thought them through well enough.

The best way to falsify or verify any myth or legend is with Google scholar. Below, we reveal our findings so you can objectively judge for yourself.

  • Obviously, this hoax is a subliminal attempt to demonize the melanin rich. When you feel good about yourself, it’s hard to feel bad about anyone or anything else. If it’s one thing we feel good about here at Keyamsha the Awakening, it’s ourselves.
  • We have documented the dollar value of melanin and it is easily verifiable. Melanin is currently worth $500 a gram. It also means melanin is worth over $441 a gram more than gold. Simply put:
  • Carbon is not now nor has carbon ever been worth more than gold. Twenty-five grams of carbon is worth only $234.00. Why would the company selling melanin for one price sell, carbon for almost 50 times less if they were the same thing?
When they told you melanin is carbon THAT WAS A LIE. Melanin is worth more than gold. When has carbon EVER been worth more than gold?


  • Allow us to show why this is blasphemy. 666 is a reference to a bible verse in Revelation 13:18 where it says:
  • Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
  • The bible also tells us:
    • In Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. the first human was named Adam and his wife.”
  • Then in Genesis 3:20:
    • And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living.
  • Why would God make two beings in his own image and then put the mark of the beast in them?
  • Does that mean God is the beast? This is the blasphemy we referred to above.
  • The most recent common ancestors of all human beings are from Africa. Mitochondrial Eve lived about 200,000 years ago in East Africa. “Y-chromosomal Adam” was a man who lived between 200,000 and 300,000 years ago. If God created us in his image and science proves the first humans had high levels of melanin in their skin you can see why Atheism is on the rise.

Carbon is an element

  • Is it true that Carbon has 6 protons (positively charged particles), 6 neutrons (uncharged particles) and 6 electrons (negatively charged particles)? Okay let’s see about that.
  • Go to scholar.google.com. It is like a hidden, secret part of google that most people don’t know about.
  • Search for six protons six neutrons six electrons.
  • Of the 217 results the first should be “The isotopic mass defect: a tool for limiting molecular formulas by accurate mass.” It is from the journal Analytical and Bioanalytical Chemistry August 2010, Volume 397, Issue 7, pp 2807–2816.
  • In that article you will find this statement: “As an example, 12 C consists of six protons (accurate mass of 1.007277 u each), six electrons
    (accurate mass of 0.000548597 u each), and six neutrons (accurate mass of 1.008665 u each).
  • The book Natural Kinds by MA Khalidi – The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy of Science, 2016 says the following on page 411 “An atom of carbon-12, for example, has six protons, six neutrons (each of which consist of three quarks), and (in a nonionized state) six electrons…”
  • Allan B. Cobb in his book “The Basics of Nonmetals” tells us on page 18 “Most carbon occurs in the form, or isotope, carbon-12 or C-12. Carbon-12 is very stable. It has six protons and six neutrons. Carbon-12 accounts for about 98.9 percent of all carbon.”
  • So yeah, “carbon” has six protons, six neutrons and six electrons. Carbon-12 specifically, which accounts for 98.9 percent of all carbon.
  • The chemical formula for melanin is C18H10N2O4. That means there are 18 carbon atoms, 10 hydrogen, 2 nitrogen and 4 oxygen atoms in a melanin molecule. Melanin is carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen.
  • What is Carbon-12? It is an element. The Georgia State University Department of Physics and Astronomy Hyperphysics website explains carbon as “forming more chemical compounds than any other element than hydrogen. Many of the chemicals in living organisms are hydrocarbons. The field of organic chemistry is primarily the chemistry of the compounds of carbon.” The page talks about graphite and even diamonds. No mention of melanin, though. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry describes an element as “atoms with the same number of protons in the atomic nucleus…pure chemical substance composed of atoms with the same number of protons in the atomic nucleus.”
Melanin does not have 6 electrons 6 protons and 6 neutrons. Carbon does. Carbon is an element. Melanin is a chemical worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium combined.

Melanin Is A Chemical

  • In google scholar put the phrase “melanin is carbon.” The result? “Your search – “melanin is carbon” – did not match any articles.”
  • Any questions?
  • Melanin by itself produces 365,000 results. Not one states “melanin is carbon”.
  • One of those articles is “The physical and chemical properties of eumelanin.” It describes melanin as a “chemical.” As shown above, carbon is an element. Chemicals comprise elements. Elements make up chemicals. Elements are the ingredients of chemicals, like carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide. Ordinary chemical means can not break elements down. Melanin is a chemical. It is an aromatic biopolymer and organic semiconductor. The enzyme tyrosinase oxygenates tyrosine producing melanin. Stars produce carbon when hydrogen fuses with helium.
Computed molecular structure 3D model of melanin. The actual molecular structure of melanin is unknown. This is because of the method for determining molecular structures being based on energy. Melanin absorbs energy used in spectroscopy and makes the process inoperable.
Carbon has 6 protons 6 electrons 6 neutrons. Melanin is a chemical. Carbon is an element. Melanin is worth more than gold.
  • Carbon having 6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons has no more to do with melanin than it does to do with tomato sauce or bananas.
  • Carbon may be the mark of the beast, but melanin is not carbon.
  • Melanin is a chemical. Carbon is an element. Melanin is not carbon because melanin has a chemical formula.

The Mhotep Corporation uses its Keyamsha The Awakening brand to heighten perceptions and expand awareness. By producing content that engages, entertains and educates we create value for value relationships with our audience for mutual benefit. Mhotep is derived from the name of the architect and builder of the first pyramid in Kemet, so-called ancient Egypt. I formed the Mhotep Corporation in 2003 to produce and distribute 3D animation videos based on traditional African stories. Since then it has evolved to being a media production company including books. In a previous life I worked as a systems analyst developing solutions for government and multinational organizations. Born and educated in Washington, D.C. I have traveled to several places including Haiti, the Bahamas, Mexico, Canada, Nigeria (several times), Ethiopia (several times), Benin, Togo, and South Africa. I am married with three children.


  1. You: said Melanin is a chemical and carbon is a element and Chemicals consist of elements and Elements make up chemicals. Elements are the ingredients of chemicals, like carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide.

    Me: When you inhale (breathe in), air enters your lungs, and oxygen from that air moves to your blood. At the same time, carbon dioxide, a waste gas, moves from your blood to the lungs and is exhaled (breathed out). This process, called gas exchange, is essential to life. but if you breath in your own air and exhale in a bag or wearing a mask your breathing produce carbon monoxide.

    You: so to make the statement melanin is not carbon is false because as you state Melanin is just a chemical and carbon is a element

    Me: Do you see where I’m going with this what you said doesn’t make sense so please make it make sense

    You: then you said Melanin is a chemical. It is an aromatic biopolymer.

    Me: the 3 major Biopolymers in the body based on their monomeric units and structure:
    Polynucleotides: DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) and RNA (ribonucleic acid)
    Polysaccharides: cellulose, chitosan, chitin, etc.
    Polypeptides: collagen, gelatin, gluten, whey, etc.
    Biopolymers are natural polymers produced by the cells of living organisms. Biopolymers consist of monomeric units that are covalently bonded to form larger molecules. There are three main classes of biopolymers, classified according to the monomers used and the structure of the biopolymer formed: polynucleotides, polypeptides, and polysaccharides. Polynucleotides, such as RNA and DNA, are long polymers composed of 13 or more[clarification needed] nucleotide monomers. Polypeptides and proteins, are polymers of amino acids and some major examples include collagen, actin, and fibrin. Polysaccharides are linear or branched polymeric carbohydrates and examples include starch, cellulose and alginate. Other examples of biopolymers include natural rubbers (polymers of isoprene), suberin and lignin (complex polyphenolic polymers), cutin and cutan (complex polymers of long-chain fatty acids) and melanin.
    Biopolymers have applications in many fields including the food industry, manufacturing, packaging, and biomedical engineering. A Natural polymer which controls various life process in the body of a organism is called natural biopolymer. DNA is a natural biopolymer which is a main constituent of chromosomes. Rubber is a natural polymer but not a natural biopolymer. Teflon and Nylon-6,6 both are synthetic polymers.
    Polymers are widely found in nature Biopolymers are organic polymers that are produced by different biological organisms. In nature, biopolymers can be found in large amounts. They are biodegradable and have no negative effects on the environment; therefore, they might be favorable soil-improvement material.
    As our body cells contain various ions like sodium ion , potassium ion , chloride ion etc which have the tendency to conduct electricity and this makes our body good conductor of electricity
    To understand how semiconductors work, you must first understand a little about how electrons are organized in an atom within the body.

    You:Then you said
    Melanin is produced through oxygenation of tyrosine in the presence of the enzyme Tyrosinase and Carbon is produced through the process of fusion of hydrogen with helium in stars.

    Me: our body produces oxygen that equals oxygenation
    Tyrosine is a nonessential amino acid the body makes from another amino acid called phenylalanine. It is an essential component for the production of several important brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, including epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine
    Tyrosinase is a copper-containing enzyme present in plant and animal tissues that catalyzes the production of melanin and other pigments from tyrosine by oxidation. It is found inside melanosomes which are synthesized in the skin melanocytes. In humans, the tyrosinase enzyme is encoded by the TYR gene.

    Me: Approx 90 percent of all atoms are made up of hydrogen. It is an element which is present in all the fluids of the human body which allows the toxins and waste to be transported and eliminated. With the help of hydrogen joints in our body remained lubricated and able to perform its functions
    We produce helium the same helium that the stars make when we are breathing on intercostal and quadriceps muscle blood flow during exercise
    so your wrong on making the statement that melanin’s chemical is not made up of elemental carbon it’s contradicting what you are saying and it doesn’t make sense when you know your body and all that’s in it and what it can do. our body is like a computer it stores data so you don’t need a machine or regular computer to give you these results.
    our skeleton is part crystal so you don’t need a crystal generator to tell you what I’m saying is correct and what your saying is wrong. Please next time just don’t post because if you are not fully knowledgeable in certain areas can stir your viewers in the wrong direction because you haven’t reached a level in knowledge yet it’s not fair to those here to learn so until you have unlimited all knowing knowledge please don’t make statements such as

    You: Melanin Myth #3 Melanin Is Carbon
    or when they told you Melanin was carbon that was a lie.

    1. The answer to your question and more is detailed in the appendix of my book “Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold: Is This The Era Of The Blessed Generation.”

      Melanin is worth more than gold. It is worth more than gold, silver, platinum, palladium, rhodium, coltan AND CARBON combined. I wrote a whole book available on Amazon for $13.99 that details how we learned that is true and what happened next. The Melanin Tipping Point” is when a massive, epic shift in awareness takes place because 800 million people or ten percent of earth’s population knows melanin is worth more than gold. The Melanin Tipping Point could happen at any moment.

      The myth melanin is carbon was never mentioned until after I observed melanin is worth more than gold eight years ago in March 2014.

      Go to the chemical company selling melanin. On their website 25 Grams of carbon is worth $293.00. On the same website you will see 1 (one) Gram of melanin is worth $500!!! How can the same thing be worth almost fifty times itself?

      Carbon’s Chemical Abstract Service Number is 7440-44-0 Melanin’s CAS Number: 8049-97-6. If melanin and carbon were the same thing they would have the same CAS number right? Go to the PubChem a website by the national institutes of health and you will see all the information on Carbon here and melanin here.

      The chemical formula for melanin is C18H10N2O4. That means there are 18 carbon atoms, 10 hydrogen, 2 nitrogen and 4 oxygen atoms in a melanin molecule. Why is the hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen in melanin ignored?

      The chemical formula of carbon? “C” because it is an element.

    2. The face that she’s saying to use A WHITE MANS GOOGLE TO RESEARCH about our people either let’s me know she’s a gate keeper for the white man, intentionally posting false information or just plain ignorant. You can not go and ask people who hate you who you are! They will not tell you the truth about your legacy. Bye

      1. She doesn’t have a problem speaking his language while she says that. Either way whoever she is it doesn’t matter. The truth is setting the truth seekers free. It would seem that the people who invented COINTELPRO 2.0 aka the American Inquisition would have learned by now. The Creator has a master plan. That plan involves sending the information we need directly to us. If it came through “you-know-who” they were nothing more than a tool in the creator’s hand to emancipate us from mental slavery.


  2. Uhm melanin is carbon tf . Maybe he were 666 bc we’re in perfect and born INTO sin as the Bible says and we have to reach 777 to be made while into perfection ! Which is scripture and we are literal star dust ! What are stars made from??? Carbon

    1. If you take the time to actually read the article you’ll see melanin is worth over 250 times what carbon is worth. What scripture says doesn’t change that. This is just ONE of at least ten melanin myths. I wrote a whole book about how all this was revealed. Beliefs can be lies but facts are not debatable.

    2. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold silver platinum palladium rhodium coltan and carbon combined. $441 a gram more than gold. This should bring to mind a different scripture than the one you referenced.

      “The stone that the builder refused. Will always be the head cornerstone”
      Corner Stone
      Bob Marley and the Wailers

      Matthew 20:16 KJV
      So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.

      “This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last”
      “Natural Mystic” from Bob Marley & The Wailers

      Ezekiel 37

      The hand of the LORD was upon me, and he brought me out by the Spirit of the LORD and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones.
      He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry.
      He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” I said, “O Sovereign LORD, you alone know.”
      Then he said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, `Dry bones, hear the word of the LORD!
      This is what the Sovereign LORD says to these bones: I will make breath [1] enter you, and you will come to life.
      I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.'”
      So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone.
      I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.
      Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.'”
      So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet–a vast army.
      Then he said to me: “Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel. They say, `Our bones are dried up and our hope is gone; we are cut off.’
      Therefore prophesy and say to them: `This is what the Sovereign LORD says: O my people, I am going to open your graves and bring you up from them; I will bring you back to the land of Israel.
      Then you, my people, will know that I am the LORD, when I open your graves and bring you up from them.
      I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land. Then you will know that I the LORD have spoken, and I have done it, declares the LORD.'”

      1. March 2024 will be ten years since we first observed melanin is worth more than gold. Yet people still don’t know you couldn’t read this sentence without the melanin at the base of your brain
