They actually absorbed Egyptian culture not European. Freud died believing Achencheres/Ahkenaten/Amenhotep IV was Moses and he was not the only one, since then successive Semites have tried to discredit Amenhotep IV's ideology in order to have Moses' ideology seem superior. One interesting and objective treatise was done by a Muslim-Arab student of the Koran, the Talmud (Hebrew), the Bible and Egyptology (Hieroglyphics); he draws some mind blowing comparisons between Moses and Ahkenaten, unfortunately I cannot remember his name (will get back to you on that one): According to him the Talmud has Moses as the King of not only Egypt but Ethiopia, which is where he fled after killing the Egyptian; it was after his reign in Ethiopia that he fled to Edom the Median territory. He claims that during the entire 18th and some of the 19th dynasty Egypt was essentially ruled by Israelites, descendents of Yuya/Joseph, not until Horemheb did Egypt revert to indigenous rule, Horemheb being the Pharaoh of the Exodus.
I believe Diodorus has something to say about Horemheb restoring law and order to Egypt.
I'm responding to this thread because you made the same suggestion in response to my post to 360. I thought being female I did not have the capacity to envision such evil, but I see 360 also has problems believing others capable of such wilful deception.
I have a question; it relates to the flood/deluge allegories, much like the fires from the skies Massey stops at the celestial ritual which is the religious phase of Egyptian wisdom. I however believe everything has a natural genesis (origin in nature) and if we accept as above so below literally then at some point in time the known world was under water and some sentient being was there to observe it. Can you and 360 help me out with this one? Time was kept on the ground before it was kept in the skies; was there a time of an earthly flood?
