Wow; A good author and so few views for the thread.
There's a simple reason R Avry Wilson can throw a party and so few show up. Egyptologists have taken the oldest corpus in human history and marginalized it by telling people it can't be understood and it's just silly gobbledty gook. Everyone knows you need 8 years of college just to understand the translation so few read it even on sites that talk about pyramids!!!
It's very very sad what Egyptology has done to ancient Egypt and the PT.
The other thing that strikes me as funny (since the thread is back up anyway) is that when a translator who actually understands the writing publishes a translation it's going to look an awful lot like what Mercer wrote. Here he is being excommunicated by Egyptology and he wrote the only translation that's very similar to author intent. His only crime was not being a proper Egyptologist.
How ironic can it be that Egyptology took a silly little book of ritual that is currently the oldest and most important book in the world and trivialized it through over-parsing and gross misinterpretation?
