I should let you know, that I am in fact a PhD candidate currently working towards his doctorate in Egyptology. And as such I am well aware of most of the available evidence concerning the royal ideologies and mortuary beliefs of the Old Kingdom.

And believe it or not, as part of my university curriculum, I took a course which related all of the current fringe theories about ancient Egypt, and which trained me in the most effective ways to counter fringe arguments.



I should let you know that cladking is the world's leading authority on the Pyramid Texts. His thread, "The Nature of Horus in the Pyramid Texts" has been running continuously since 2012 with constant updates by cladking. In fact most posts are those by cladking himself.

Your PHD studies mean nothing here. One of cladking's colleagues whose handle is Origyptian also has a PHD in something or other, and is one of cladking's most ardent admirers.

As for doing a course in rebutting fringe theories - are you serious? There is no way possible to counter cladking's understanding of the texts.

This board gets more and more crackpot theories every week. Try using your new anti-fringe techniques starting with the latest wackos before you tackle an old hand such as cladking.

Now, he's tried to warn you, leading one to suspect that a newbie such as yourself will just crash and burn.
