Thanks Tom, in the book you mention that Massey had meticulously documented over 200 relationships between Christianity and Egyptian myth/religeon. There is a long list of star connections releated to this - Isis - Sirius, three shepherds - Orion, Sun of god - later, Son of God etc.

Do you have any comments on why the figures of Hermes and Thoth resonated with both the Egyptians and Greeks? And if the 'hermetic' connection had an influence in the formation of Christainity - it appears to have been an underlying influence according to this.
