einstein's work, supported by the michelson-morley experiment, rejected the necessity of aether.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Non-blood Akhu?

yes, our akhu can include people we weren't blood-related to :) we have temple akhu, and a lot of people have special relationships with kemetic akhu they met through museums, for example, and i have a rainbow fluorite angel in my akhu shrine for my queer "ancestors," as well as an ambulance for the people who died in my care as an EMT.

i don't understand, i guess -- why would you be able to undertake a rite of passage into a community before you took the class that told you what the community was all about?

did you get the autoresponse when you sent your email? it says to give her ten business days :)

ah yes, Anubis, my favorite raccoon-fish-goddess...

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.

Yes, the country has dealt with contentious elections before. As someone who has voted in quite a few elections (I'm 60), this one, for me, is very different. It is more frightening to me, and to a lot of those I care about, than any election I have experienced.


Yet it is also time for me to recognize my personal fears and face them. And to love and support those of my friends who are frankly terrified.

I am looking at what is next for me. And I think there is a need to address the grieving that people need to do. Grieving not for a specific candidate. More for a sense of safety and belonging.

This, so much this. My fiancée and I are not sad the candidate we voted for lost. We are scared that, as a same-sex female couple, we will lose healthcare, the ability to get married, the right to rent an apartment or house, in short, the right to exist.

I hope I'm wrong about Trump, I really, truly, honestly do. But I doubt I am, and the ramifications of his ascendency to office in tandem with a Republican dominated Congress leaves me in a state of anxiety and stress.

There have been many, many quotes that dispel the myth that Trump is homophobic. In fact, the first three appointments to his transition team were a woman, a gay man and a black man. I get disappointment, but fear? Some of us need to open our eyes and look for ourselves, and turn the media off.
his party platform, and specifically his vice president, support gay conversion therapy.

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."

Hethert or Wesir -- i'm thinking green.

eating a snake-shaped cake is something we all do together at retreat! i recommend stabbing it in the neck first.

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.

[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Re: Where oh where to put my shrine?
« on: June 01, 2016, 07:52:30 pm »
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.
