It doesn't. I assume Sam thinks it is cremation for the dead king ascends to the sky "on the wind" (Pyr. 309) However, the notion of ascension profilerates: these are translations by J H Brestead: 'Development of Religion and Thought in Ancient Egypt' (Chicago, 1912) QuoteThy two wings are spread out like a falcon with thick plumage, like the hawk seen in the evening traversing th

The church would not encourage its congregation to familiarise itself with what remains of the gnostic gospels because it worked unceasingly at their rejection, suppression and destruction from the 4th century. If only we knew all the reasons why.

I asked you: 'What might have prompted a people to cremate the dead body of their king atop the pyramid?' You responded by writing: QuoteIt was ritual. No more, no less. Specifically it was the part of the rituals by which the king ascended to heaven to become a star and a memory and acquired its name. It's how the pyramid became the king himself (Khufu's Horizon). The Pyramid Text

to which I'd appreciate two brief answers please, Sam. (1) What, in your opinion, is the reason why the Great Pyramid was built? (2) What might have prompted a people to cremate the dead body of their king atop the pyramid? I look forward to your replies. Thanks, Matt

Mark To question the veracity of the 'content' of a work of oral rabbinic literature until its transcription centuries after an established literary canon is akin, in the opinion of Kabbalists at least, to questioning the veracity of the 'content' of the gnostic gospels. Proponents of an established 'canon' always dismiss other works as apocrypha or, in this case, pseudepigrapha. One int

Here is the excerpt: "Rabbi Yose and Rabbi Hiyya were travelling on the road. As they were going along, night dusked; they sat down. While they were sitting, the day lightened. They said, “Let us rise and go on.” They rose and went on; morning began to glow. Rabbi Hiyya said, “Look at the face of the east, how it shines! Now all those children of the East, of the mountains of light, are b

The wood will be carbon dated, as has wood which has been dredged from the 'money pit'. Fragments of human bone and parchment which have been retrieved from a greater depth than the logs revealed at Smith's Cove suggest a much more recent date than the one you are proposing.

Look to the Zohar (2:188a-b) for evidence of the Essenes' contact with India, Mark. Seek and you will find, as the Gnostic Bishop advised elsewhere. :)

Interestingly, there is also a Muslim sect who claim the tomb in Srinagar to be that of the 'prophet' Jesus. Of course, this notion must be ridiculed by the Christian church: "I've learned love is like a brick: you can Build a house or sink a dead body."

What do you think of the idea that Jesus, having been taken down from the cross, did not die in Jerusalem - hence the empty tomb - but survived and died years later in India? The tomb of a crucified man in Srinagar, India. The Roman Empire never reached India ... crucifixion was not a known form of punishment, and yet there is a tomb of a man who bore the wounds of crucifixion. Thoma

When his ideas were challenged by other forum members, Armand claimed he would respond then promptly left the forum. His 'latest' updates offer nothing new, Daniel. Still, if you believe that the AEs had 'plasma tube' technology and light bulbs, you are likely to lap up every word.

Far more entertaining than Sam's tired old response, Martin. "Ridicule is nothing to be scared of!" Maybe Sam could add this to his signatory.

get bored of peddling the same, tired old BS? Or do you just cut and paste to save time? Muon detection technology is "real science" of the kind you claim is not being done, Sam. Go spout your nonsense somewhere people will nod along inanely.

Thank you. That link took me to the page and when I zoomed in, I could clearly the 'sesh' glyph in each register, indicating the 7 scribes.

Hi Lee As ever, a fascinating post. In respect of the third link in your OP, there is a photograph showing an inscribed door jamb at the southerly entrance. Do you know if it the inscription is understood? If so, what does it say and are there better photographs of it? Apologies if it is in the PDF you linked to at the end of your post (I didn't have time to read that!) Matt

Yeah, ignore that last post. It was filled with debris decades ago and I think I completely imagined the military complex. It's been a VERY long day! :)

Am I mistaken in thinking that the Abu Rawash site is now enclosed within a military complex and is off limits to archaeologists, and is now filled with debris? Or have I just dreamed that up?

The thing is, Daniel, Armand was asked a number of questions about his 'theory' in this thread years ago, which he said he was going to address and then never did.

Thanks Martin. In the absence of the article itself, perhaps I ought to retract my opinion that Hassan's words were 'fascinating', for it seems they have simply been attributed to him. Good detective work!

Hi Lee I thought that the image might be of interest to JM as it serves to illustrate the variety of repairs - ancient, classical and modern - which have been undertaken and which lends weight to the idea that the Sphinx in its leonine form might well not have been its original form. I struggle with colour blindness and find the shades used in the image (other than blue / grey? and dark green)

Hello Engbren You wrote: QuoteWhen I read this book which is a comprehensive review of Thoth and is written from a theological perspective, I didn’t find any reference to emerald tablets related to Thoth. might that be because the Emerald Tablets to which the OP refers was written in 1925?

In response to your question about the hole on top of the head of the Great Sphinx: Quote Baraize also paved with cement a deep hole on the top of the Sphinx's head. The hole measures approximately 5 feet square and nearly 6 feet deep. An iron trap door was fitted to the mouth of the hole. It has been theorized that the hole, began as a means for affixing a headdress to the sphinx in the mann

You really do need to pay attention. Listen to the stupidity of your comment: QuoteSo obviously people are going to question the language even when they don't know it. No. If you don't know a language at all, then you cannot possibly begin to question it. By way of example, I assume that you do not speak, read or write the Gaelic language. What on Earth would make you think that you

Taken from the preamble to this fantasy fiction, written in 1925: QuoteIf the light is in you, the light which is engraved in these tablets will respond. The light between the lines unequivocally states: 'This is pure bull$#!t" It radiates for those with eyes to see (oh, and for those with "attuned thought waves" too!) :)
