Whatever. I guess some snowflakes can't be convinced. Honestly, I'm not happy entirely with the choices we had either. But this visceral reaction is just absolutely ridiculous.
sorry, were you attempting to convince some "snowflakes" of something? i didn't see any citations from you.

okay, if you're going to quote FREUD as a potential authority -- who refused to even acknowledge the truth of what his own patients told him -- i'm really not going to take anything you say seriously, and i'm definitely not going to get into some weird socratic debate with you. have fun.

i guess i'm just uncomfortable with being told there are "proofs" that i'm doing my religion wrong. like, if you want to be a monotheist egyptian reconstructionist, congratulations, power to you, but you're not going to "prove" my faith wrong.
[edited:] thank you, tek! (if i remember correctly, you hold a master's in egyptology, yes?)

I agree with Budge's view that sometimes when they talked about God the meant Him in the simple plain way that it sounds to us today, without adding in other nuances or clarifications like Trinitarianism, pantheism.
isn't budge not widely respected in the egyptological community anymore, specifically for shoehorning victorian christian views of religion into his translations?
[edited:] also, as someone who was raised catholic, i'm not really cool with the idea that a singular god free of trinitarianism is how "God" sounds to "us today."
also, sometimes separating what you like from what the gods like isn't the point -- there are definitely things that my gods seem to like receiving from me specifically because part of Their enjoyment is my enjoyment.

i'd say put it where you're going to use it. when mine was in a mostly-unused closet, i almost never went in there; now that it's in my bedroom, it's not the neatest space that has ever held a shrine, but i spend more time with the gods than before.
wait, are we talking two-dimensional or three-dimensional icons? because i feel like a cloth over a three-dimensional one would require some sort of frame to avoid being... ah, unsubtle, if you catch my meaning.
i believe in an afterlife for many personal reasons, foremost being that i've communicated with dead people since childhood. what do you think is the purpose of ancestor devotion, if you believe there is nothing after this life?
