Well they all have PHD's on those shows and they have credited research on the credit lines at the end of the show. I will also keep yours in mind and thank you.

My favorite is Wallis Budge I have read 4 of his books. They have helped me piece things together but I can't wait to get the religion worked out properly.

I feel you should know that Budge is notoriously unreliable.

And none of the primary spokespeople on Ancient Aliens have PhDs, actually, much less Egyptology degrees. Of course shows like that tend to pull in experts on whatever it is they're discussing that episode, but the people who are actually attempting to further the alien theories? No, they do not have doctorates. Even if they did, that wouldn't make them automatically credible.

Zahi Hawass is creditable in archaeology and I think he knows a thing or two about Egyptology. He is on many of the shows I have retained information from. Not saying I know everything but I find him very credible.

As far as I know he's never said anything about aliens, though. In fact, from what I know, his take on that theory is quite negative, like most of the archaeological community's.

I think Amun-Rah is the king of all Gods and Goddesses in Ancient Egypt. I bet you can't even agree on that. Can you?

Well, I was debating with you politely, but I think we're done here now.

(Also, no, I can't, because we're a religion with a huge emphasis on multiplicity and there is no one interpretation of Amun-Ra or any other deity. There are multiple kings of the gods. But that's neither here nor there.)

Is there some way to ping a forum moderator over here? Pretty sure personal attacks usually mean a ban.

Give me a break it was a question.  I like Amun-Ra because he brought peace to ancient Egypt between Pharaoh and his people. Plus he was the King of Gods at the pinnacle of science and technology of ancient Egypt or when they were the smartest.

Moderator here:

We're a religious community, historically informed. There is no credible evidence to suggest any sort of "alien intervention" in Kemet. See what I said before about people making claims about any non-European advanced civilization supposedly being taught by aliens. E.A. Wallis Budge is an old and discredited source for information about Egypt due, in part, to his bringing Victorian morals into his interpretation of Kemetic writings.

I'd also disagree about some of your interpretations about Amun-Ra. While I do not know Him as well as some other deities (Jackal kid here), I don't think identifying Him as some kind of pinnacle in the mythology is a fair interpretation. The God at the forefront of various dynasties and kingdoms was based on a wide range of factors, often political.

I won't bring that one up again just happy to have found people in the same religion as me now I hope to perfect it. Yes there is a bunch more to Amun-Ra you are correct that was just a couple facts I read.
