  • Thoughts On Ancient Egyptians

    I've watched several documentaries of late, and I've really taken an even greater interest in the goings on of this civilization. Firstly, Bill Maher's Religulous reminded me of the aspects of Christianity completely borrowed from Egypt (Osiris = Original version of Jesus,) then I started watching a documentary series called Ancient Aliens which shows aspects of their technology that insinuate they understood the concepts and physics of flight. Anyone else have a take on any of this? It really seems like this should have been their world, but somehow it didn't turn out that way....

    What about...I never read this, but I had a history professor who was all into this book Black Athena? About how Egypt is African, and the root of Western civilization via Mycaenaens and what not, so ultimately Europe owes it all to um, yea, Africa.

    Anyways yea Egypt is coo'

        There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge." - Isaac Asimov, Newsweek (21 January 1980)

          A lot of Western knowledge got lost. The Greeks were already very advanced in their knowledge, most of which was adopted by Arabs who kept the knowledge alive whilst we entered the dark ages

                  Pretty amazing civilization, and yes, begs the question what exactly led to it's downfall.

                  I have a tattoo of the eye of Horus. I've always found fascination with ancient Egypt and that symbol particularly.

                  As a child, the Alan Parson's Project album "Eye in the Sky" would just mesmerize me.

                  Anyway, many ancient cultures seemed to have strikingly similar gods in hierarchy. If you look at the gods worshiped by the Egyptians, Greeks, Nordics, Mayan/Aztecs, Indians, there are alot of similarities. And yes, alot of their "primitive" understanding of the world was shockingly accurate.

                  You should do a little research into India and the stories of Nuclear warfare in the ancient world. Even crazier...there is evidence to back some of it up!

                    Is there a book, documentary, or link you can recommend?

                        It is a fascinating subject. I don't buy into the ancient astronauts stuff, but it is amazing what they achieved way back then.

                        I tell you what, I'd of hated to have been one of those poor bastards moving huge stone blocks up to the top of the pyramids. I bet they died out because after a day of that kind of labor, most of them were too tired to make any new little Egyptians.

                            I also recently watched one of those Terry Jones hosted history shows about Egypt, where it's suggested that the level of teamwork and camaraderie that existed during the construction may have meant that those "slaves" lived relatively happy lives, and weren't overworked....

                              I saw a docco that suggested that they were quite well treated, and probably not slaves, due to the plentiful evidence of healed broken bones, food remnants found and nutritional evidence from their teeth. Don't ask what it was called as I've no idea...
