I'm seeing some things come together here, but egyptologists - such as Zahi Hawass - have too much pride in their own egos and discoveries, in their fellow countrymen, and in the more established model of egyptian history, pyramid-building, spirituality, etc.
jiii,jiii said:The question here is not so much one of whether or not flawed knowledge is being upheld in the face of negating facts, but rather whether or not the timeline of an entire civilization, which mostly fits together without a problem in its current configuration, should be completely altered to accomodate estimates of pyramid age which are, at least for now, supported by less evidence than currently held figures.
You're certainly welcome!Zagreus,
That was so much more informative than I expected. Thank you very much. I had no idea. I also very much appreciate the links you provided. Really, I can't believe you went to so much trouble to explain all of that to me. Thank you!
When they say 'Orions belt' they are refering to the common modern name for the consatlation rather than what the Egyptians called it- so that modern readers with little or no knowledge of Ancient Egypt (like myself) don't get confused.I'm brand new to this site and new to html code also. This site is a bit difficult for me to navigate. Hope I don't break any rules.
I was just wondering about the references to Orions belt. Please correct me if I am wrong. I was under the impression that Orion was from a mediterranean mythology or belief system. Did the Egyptians of this period know of Orion and would they even have revered him if so? I thought they had their own gods.
Or maybe I really need an history and georgraphy lesson.
