5.0 out of 5 stars Erroneous review
The review of rcman5000 suffers from severe historic inaccuracy, confusing the time periods when ancient Egyptian panthea developed with the Greek and Roman cultures and the Library of Alexandria, i.e. periods that span thousands of years as if they occured simultaneously. Also, the common belief that the Greeks borrowed their knowledge from the Egyptians has been found...

1.0 out of 5 stars Budge: if you weren't so stupid you'd be funny
Its funny because if the Egyptians learnt everything they knew from the Greeks then where did the Greeks build their great pyramids because i haven't seen them anywhere. And why have all (ALL) the so called secret society's based their rituals and symbols on ancient egyptian symbols and ceremony. All the Greek Gods are just their versions of the Egyptian Gods which we...

5.0 out of 5 stars Erroneous review, 16 July 2004
This review is from: The Gods of the Egyptians, Volume 2: v. 2 (Paperback)
The review of rcman5000 suffers from severe historic inaccuracy, confusing the time periods when ancient Egyptian panthea developed with the Greek and Roman cultures and the Library of Alexandria, i.e. periods that span thousands of years as if they occured simultaneously. Also, the common belief that the Greeks borrowed their knowledge from the Egyptians has been found erroneous, because there is evidence that so-called Greek culture existed and developed in the area long before the Egyptians did, and in fact it was the Egyptians that borrowed and not the other way round. Also, the view that Christianity was based on Egyptian religion. Careful there!!! If Christianity must be based on something before, then this something might be related to Judaism, Greek philosophy (Plato and Socrates) and perhaps the monotheism of Akhenaten, the Essenes and maybe many other things... Too many factors that do not allow drawing easy and simplified conclusions...

1.0 out of 5 stars Budge: if you weren't so stupid you'd be funny, 18 Jan 2008
This review is from: The Gods of the Egyptians, Volume 2: v. 2 (Paperback)
Its funny because if the Egyptians learnt everything they knew from the Greeks then where did the Greeks build their great pyramids because i haven't seen them anywhere. And why have all (ALL) the so called secret society's based their rituals and symbols on ancient egyptian symbols and ceremony. All the Greek Gods are just their versions of the Egyptian Gods which we know were worshiped hundreds of years earlier. Christianity based on Judaism? And where did the Jew's get it from, they were'nt slaves in Egypt they were there to learn like everyone else. Virgin Mary and child is Europes answer to Isis and child Horus, the 10 commandments taken from Maat's 42 Laws, need i go on?
The Kabalah's not Jewish, visit Egypt and see Kabalic images on the walls of the temples. Savages? lol the Egyptians were building the pyramids when people in the west were eating raw meat, shagging sheep and living in caves. If i could give this book minus infinity i would. DONT BUY IT, this books a joke.
