Ok, let me first start off by saying its not my intention to insult anybody by this thread. I just want to share something that has had me interested for a long time.

You might know im not a religious man, but I do have interest in religions and what it is about them thats makes them so important to so many people. And most of all, I like to find out what is true about them.

the one that interests me the most is the egyptian mythologie. Now I should point out that these people live(d) according to this mythologie, but it is NOT a religion.

For those of you who never really looked into this mythologie, I shall try to explain it in short.

The Egyptians believe that there were these 3 characters (god-people) in the beginning (which is if I recall about 2000 BC) 1. Osiris 2. Isis (sister) 3. Seth (brother)

Seth was jealous of Osirs and killed him. Isis was devestated and by impregnating herself with Osiris' sperm (liek pr0n) gave birth to a half god/half man (like Jesus) named Horus. Horus defeated Seth (and thereby evil).

If you like closely, you will see that the story of Isis and Horus is exactly the same as the christmas story. Its know that the ancient egyptians had a lot of knowlegde about the stars. the piramyds of Gizza for example or perfectly aligned with the belt of Orion (the star of Osiris for them) also, the vent in the great piramyde were thought to be airshafts, but as it turn out, they perfectly align with the stars of Isis and Osiris (at the time they were build) this had something to do with the dead farao and his journy to the afterlife, im not going to talk about that now. Where im going with this star-crap is that it is calculated with computer models that the stars of the egyptian mythologie were perfectly aligned to fit the christmas story also. And think about the 3 wise guys from the east ;) Its proven that the Christian believe actually "stole" a lot of its stories from the egyptian mythology and the ancient priests converted it over time to a "religion" to gain power over the people.

If you know something about the egyptian mythologie, you might know that the most sacred thing for them is this:

Now, you might recall this also being all over the world. for example Paris and Washington.

as far America, this was founded by freemasons as you might know. This explains the dollar note and a lot of other things, including the statue.

as far Paris, Napoleon stayed in one of the Piramydes once over night, and he felt very protected byt the star of Isis, although he knew nothing about the egyptian mythology. this might also explain that the champs elysee is perfectly aligned with the star of Isis. and the star of Isis on the french crest.

Now, you might think of this as some chaotic mumbo-jumbo by stupid Jackthehammer. But I wish I could tell you all there is to know. But I cant, cause I cant remember everything, and cant tell everything because I dont have the time and english knowlegde to do so. My point is, I hope you might think about how much the Christian believe is based on the Egyptian Mythologie, there s really a lot more to it. And I think a lot of people should learn more about this mythologie, specially the non-religious people. Because this was what religion was all about. Finding the truth within yourself.

Actually it was a religion, at least back then.

Religion noun Definition: 1. beliefs and worship: people's beliefs and opinions concerning the existence, nature, and worship of a deity or deities, and divine involvement in the universe and human life

2. system: an institutionalized or personal system of beliefs and practices relating to the divine

3. personal beliefs or values: a set of strongly-held beliefs, values, and attitudes that somebody lives by

4. obsession: an object, practice, cause, or activity that somebody is completely devoted to or obsessed by The danger is that you start to make fitness a religion.

IIRC the Egyptian Mythos was based on Hittite which in turn was based on the Sumerian Mythos.

The Greek Mythos was based on the Egyptian one and the Romans pretty much copied the Greek version.

You are not the first one to notice the similarities.

IIRC the Obelisk was important because wherever you saw a Obelisk it meant something of great importance or significance happened there and the Egyptians built them specifically to draw attention to that spot.

Don't forget this interesting Egyptian hieroglyphic character:

The Ankh represents both life and afterlife. Déjà vu anyone?

Probably some of the signs that Constantin added to fit more the pagan beliefs. He is the one who introduced christianity to the Roman Empire and, also, changed this religion so that it fits better in. In example, he moved the holy day (that was saturday) to sunday (which was the original roman holy day). A lot of those "artifacts" in modern christianity have been added by this man, I am not really surprised. Im a baptised roman catholic, but hell, I just turned Atheist after all.

What are you referring to? What I said about the Ankh has nothing to do with Hollywood's urban legends.

sorry, I wanst talking about the ankh, I was talking hieroglyphs in general that hollywood managed to give some magical meaning, I wish more people were tought the about the real egyptian mythology more, as it is a very important base of society still. (dare I say... more important than the christian belief)

Like Anlushac11, I don't see why you consider it to be only myth, not religion. The Greek myths were part of the religious experience too. As for the parallels... There are many more. When Christians encountered strange believes they either tried to do away with them or (most of the time if that didn't work) assimilated them. For example: Pan became the devil, Moloch and Dagon demons/false gods,...

but the reason that is our artifact is the fact that Jesus died on a cross similer to that.
