    Giants

    An event will produce a story. With time the story will become legend. With time the legend will become myth. With time the myth will become fairy tale. You seem to be interested only in the fairy tale stage of the events. If you read Diodorus’ accounts of the giants you’ll find out that they...

    Translators to the gods?

    Have you ever suspected that it is your idea of godhood which is absurd and illogical and not the ancients’? They were talking of gods with whom they were living side by side and had sex with. Their gods were just another human race who spoke a different language; not the immaterial spiritual...

    Giants

    If you read the Stone Giantess myth above you may have noticed that the giantess put into her apron pocket the peasant along with the horses and his plowing equipment. That is an exaggeration to be expected; it is in the human nature. The last time that a completely normal human tribe was...

    Translators to the gods?

    There is no doubt that Sumerians called themselves Blakheads but when reference is made to the creatures of the gods then the entire humanity is meant Enuma Elis, translators Benjamin R. Foster(F) E.A.Speiser (S) VI, ~107 He shall be the shepherd of the black-headed folk, his creatures. (F)...

    Ordinary humans

    I am afraid that this was the excuse given by the representatives of the gods (angels/priests) and that the truth is that the men revolted against the gods and had them expelled from the land (not the earth). The gods did find refuse for a while in remote places (Mount Olympus / Cedar Forest)...

    Giants

    I believe that anyone who will bother to read what the ancients wrote or said about giants will come to the conclusion that only we, moderns, regard the giants as huge creatures. There is a very nice and informative myth of the American Indians entitled “The Stone Giantess,” in the book “the...

    Translators to the gods?

    Very interesting and useful information, thank you both! The Egyptians had a name for the language of the gods, HkAw, but unfortunately the translators render this term as “magic words” presenting thus the gods to recite magic incantations instead of speaking. I believe that gods and giants (or...

    Translators to the gods?

    According to Homer and the Egyptian funerary texts the gods had their own language. Iliad 1.403 But you came, goddess, and freed him from his bonds, when you had quickly called to high Olympus him of the hundred hands, whom the gods call Briareus, but all men Aegaeon; for he is mightier than...

    Greek/roman mythological prevalence

    Although I am Greek, I quite agree with that. Nothing fascinates me more than the story of the Ragnarok. In Greek mythology although the defeat of the giants (Titans) is mentioned, it has deteriorated into a fairy tale.

    Giants

    Yet, Neanderthals were built as Arnold Schwarzenegger naturally. If I was bitten by a Neanderthal I would be in such a bad state that I would have to tell my friends that this particular Neanderthal was 2.5 meters tall. My friends, transmitting the story, would keep increasing his height and...

    Egyptian mythology… today!

    Well… Judgment, souls, immortality and afterlife are concepts born out of misinterpreting (voluntarily) the Egyptian funerary texts which are describing life after judgment (judgment of people alive) and not life after death as Egyptian priesthood preached and Egyptologists keep teaching. Are...

    Egyptian mythology… today!

    O only One, You who were in the sky when there was no land and no mountains. You Shepherd Lord, One only, Maker of everything there is ! The striking passages (as they are called by W. Budge) which are cited below come from Egyptian texts and they consist just a sample of a collection of...

    The “myth” of the soul concept.

    You are either pulling my leg or the Pharaoh’s :)

    The “myth” of the soul concept.

    You are quite right! Here is the relevant passage: n \ iwn \ is \ Wnis \ Dsf not \ came \ really \ King Unis \ himself Unis has not come himself (to the Hall of Judgment) ini \ wpwt \ iit \ r =f arrived \ message \ that came \ for him A dispatch having come for him swA.n\ Wnis \ Hr \ pr \...

    The “myth” of the soul concept.

    Well, let us try another approach to the subject. The texts written in the pyramids (2400- 2200 BCE) were copied from texts written on papyrus. When was it that the texts were recorded for the first time, we do not know. What we know for sure is that the priests who edited the pyramid texts...
