I just came across this and wanted to share- but I also incorporated a little poll for fun. These sites are completely ridiculous and had me laughing for about ten minutes. I only hope that the author intended them as a joke. . .

"The 'True' meaning of Egyptian hieroglyphs"

"Annotated Egyptian Inscriptions. . . enjoy!"

What do you think?

For the poll- use these to help make your mind up- I've taken some of the most well known scenes from Ani's and Hunefer's:
Hunefer's

Hmmm, can you explain the humour you see from these sites?

Just because another translates glphs differently from your self and from what you have been taught, doesn't mean it should be taken lately.

Anyhoot thanx for sharing. I see others have been working on a similar subject as myself. That being linking the Mayan pyramids to Ancient Egypt's pyramids. In which if you were to take the positions of both cultures pyramids and a line them on paper as the pyramids are on land. They make a "MAN" within a box "a square" meaning earth. Freaky!!
To bad I don't have excess in drawing it out for you to show, oh well!

I do not agree at all. It is evident that the writer has not even looked into the representation of the hieroglyphs, and the fact that the papyrus is written in cursive text explains how these ridiculous 'objects' can be seen in the text. I really detest these ridiculous paranormal theories. They are all created by people who cannot be bothered to look into the facts for themseves. It is quite offensive to take the delicate religious texts of a culture that cannot reply, and intepret them in mad ways.

This site however, is so ridiculous that I had to link to it. . . .

Let me just quote: "Sometimes we see [the Gods] with strange looking crowns on their heads, but I myself don't think they are crowns. What they are is probably some type of thought enhancement or spiritual device that helps cleanse the chakras or aura of the individual. However this is a guess, it could also be an anti-gravity device, or a translation device that when put on the head you can understand the languages of other aliens. I am guessing but atleast I am guessing in the more logical direction that scientists currently are."

Psusennes I,
I totally, completely and profondly agree with you....
This site is free, this means that everybody can say what they want, but trying to be scientific in methods would be preferable....or appreciated, no?
There are people who don't know or don't understand, who think that they are allowed to say stupid things....Here they are free to write what they feel, but then I feel free as well to tell them that they are just ignorant and that their way to treat such matters in this mistic way is pretty ridicolous!!!

I think people are stupid for thinking that Egypt and all of it's monuments link to aliens. Or that the Egyptians were aliens themselves, just because of what they saw on tombs and walls from the Amarna period.

Reading about this actually pisses me off to think how stupid people can be.

Hey be careful, a lot of people out there actually believe in that stuff and turn it into a psudo-religion. So what if the Ancient Egyptians didn't interpret the glyphs like that. Let the people interpret it however they want to. Science is never always right and can never prove anything definatively, and if people want to believe that it's their business.

Plus I'm personally a philosophy/humanities geek and it bothers me when all you left hemisphere dominant, gun-ho "science" advocates ridicule others for their creativity or for thinking outside of the box. I like looking for the symbolism and stuff; I once thoroughly confused a friend trying to explain to her the complex philosophies/allusions in Frank Herbert's Dune. I really don't care if it's legitamate or not, their thought process and what led to their (erroneous) conclusions is what I'm interested in.

PS. If any of you want to help me prove that science is not always right, my Calc AB class is trying to find an example that disproves this theorem... Very Happy

The absolute value of the intergral of f(x) on the interval [a,b] is less than or equal to the intergral of the absolute value of f(x) on the interval [a,b].

Any smart person who wants to help us win a Nobel prize for math feel free! Very Happy

Personally it's not my aim to offend anybody and really I hope I didn't, if so I apologyse....

BUT...

if somebody wants forcely to state that things that are already clear have to be interpretate in such a way that throw into disorder original egyptian believes just to prove their crazyness, well then I have the same right to state that things are not as they want them to be.

...again, I hope with this I didn't offend anybody....

more, people have to be aware of what they choose: if they want to believe to strange stories, they are of course free to do that, but they have also to be aware of what they are talking about. I do wish to fight ignorance and I start from myself first!...I don't really think it is correct (fair) to put people who don't know anything about Ancient Egyptians, in front of such an argument without telling them that the method adopted IS NOT SCIENTIFIC AT ALL, when all these stuffs are already clear and there is no mystery about its interpretation, but those made by these unhonest persons who insist in telling foolishness about AE matters.

It may be foolish but it's interesting to see how they could come up with such things. Either that or maybe I'm a lot geekier than I thought... Embarassed lol...

Plus if you tell them their wrong, they'll just give you more mystic jargon so it's better to just leave them be. lol! Very Happy

Tsk tsk tsk Sad
Plate XIX B.D. Chapter XV
"Homage to thee Lord of Starry deities in the celestial beings in God."

Plate XXV
"I have made my forms like his forms in his coming and in his appearence."

Plate XXIV B.D. Chap.LXXIX
"I am in the very truth I am a shining being and a dweller in light who hath been created and have come into existence from the limbs of the god/man. I am one of those shining beings who dwell in light whom have created himself and who have come into existence."

Inserts from the Book of the Dead. And no I do not wish to hear its in reference whom dwell as a star in the outer regions of the heavens after their death either! As another has pointed out "think out side the box".

There is no need to "think outside the box" because there's nothing outside the box to think about.

No lifesource other than our own created the monuments and carved the hieroglyphs. These people are on the right track unlike those who oppose it, who are possibly elementary dropouts.

Calm down. . . Calm down. This is only a debate.

The only thing that I find amusing is the argument that these mystic interpretations are 'more scientific and feasable' than what exists now. If somebody feels unsatisfied with their knowledge they should read more books- not make up ridiculous jargon to fill the gaps in their inferior knowledge.
I am up for new theories and ideas, providing they are backed up and there are significant anomolies and occurences to prove that they are the case. Throwing hundreds of years of research out the window is silly, and I think that it is offensive to say that the Egyptians were ruled by aliens. They had Gods for goodness sakes! Gods are meant to be powerful and non-human.
