Amen as a deity is not mentioned, but it is as a state of exsistence: AMENTET.
"Without pre-knowledge of these stories or larger stories of information, the bits and peaces of the Egyptian book of the Dead have no correlation for the reader."
And how is this "pre-knowledge" attainable when,
"that which was edited by the priests of the college of Anu and which was based upon a series of texts now lost."
Key words: SERIES OF TEXTS.
This means there was no one, no SINGLE TEXT!
FACT: Certainly, there is no mention of a SYSTEM or TEXT predating the Vth Dynasty referred as the "Metu Neter".
This is not to say that a SYSTEM did not exist, and let me be clear on this.
However....FACT: "it was based upon a series of texts now lost".
What I "am done with" (and have placed on "ignore") are those who seek to deny the FACT but can provide nothing more than condescending, personal "diatribes" in refutation without providing WRITTEN, PRIMARY SOURCE MATERIAL as "proof", or stating that "what is in the past is nothing more than illusion".
I repeat the question,
"Can anyone refute this with EVIDENCE and cite the exact source as PROOF?
And to be clear, I am speaking of "exact source" PREDATING THE VTH DYNASTY!
Do you recognize the correlation here to what has been written in books such as Osman's "Moses and Akhenaten"?
Not to present any of this as FACT, there are some who equate Akhenaten with "Moses" and there are those who present him as "Aaron".
"Aaron" representing one priesthood. "Moses" representing another.
This is similar to the "Sons of Horus" vs the "Sons of Set(h)"
Aaronic priesthood or "Levite"
"Theban" or "Memphite"
This is why the Biblical O.T. and different Gospels in the N.T. have differing "geneaologies", because they represent DIFFERENT accounts from RIVAL SOURCES and , RIVAL PRIESTHOODS, and...
What survives as "Kemetic" was compiled AFTER the USURPATION of the Royal Bloodline vis a vis Ai, Horemheb, etc.
What survives as "Hebrew" was compiled DURING the USURPATION of the Royal Bloodline vis a vis Ai, Horemheb, etc.
"This is why it becomes extremely important to understand the time period of Egyptian Doctrines before trying to jump into the Spirituality of it."
