    shouldn't you read it first before you set up a discussion?
    how would it work? logistically?

    I'm not sure if this matériel is supposed to be "discussed", it ain't Oprah.

    Most book discussions would discuss the book chapter by chapter, which is how I would think one could go about discussing this.

    If the Bible, a religious work, is discussed, why can't this be? Or does that go against the philosphy? If it does then this is a moot issue.

    But to answer your question, no, I haven't read it... I am ordering the book next week when I can deposit my money and will read it as soon as it's delivered to my door. If the book is that complex, I would like to be able to get help with the interpretations from those experienced with Kemetician theology WHILE I am reading it.

    I also hope that maybe if people participated in such a discussion, that more could see that there is life beyond a religious mindset.

    from what i am getting, the work is spiritual rather than religious.
    i don't do religion and i barely tolerate spiritual.
    i also think that kemetians are reluctant to share information.
    some kind of secret society stuff.

    i don't know why as i haven't read that far yet. :read:

    Hmm... well, if not sharing the information is part of the philsophy then there cannot be a book discussion on it. Perhaps the intent in this would be to ensure that the person would use the information to embark on their own unique spiritual journey? If this is the reasoning, I guess I can understand that... but I don't know as I haven't read it yet either. Maybe the Kemeticians on the board can give more insight.

    But anyway, and this is off the topic a little bit, but I think its commendable you are steping out of the comfort zone of your beliefs and exploring other religious paths. I would also say this to river too, who seems to be making an incredible spiritual transformation right before this community's eyes. The spirituality section of this board has encouraged a lot of growth, and is one of my favorite sections here on Destee.

    Not at all, somethings are better answered by learning on your own.

    Karma and James,

    You guys can relax. Think about it--if it was that much a secret why would they write a book about it and puit it on Amazon.com for god's sake?

    The author writes in plain English that is very understandable. When he does use words in a special way he explains exactly how he will use them in the book.

    I haven't gotten to the spooky part yet but I'm sure even if there is a spooky part it will be in just as clear language as at the beginning.

    What's that?
    Some book. S'posed to be good for you.
    You read it?
    I'm not gonna read it. You read it
    I'm not gonna read it.
    Hey lets get River
    Naw she won't read it. She hates everything
    Hey River! She likes it

    Just read the book y'all

    I would agree that at leat owning and having read some of the book should definitely serve as a prerequisite to starting and participating in such a discussion such as this.

    Some aspects of METU NETER will be made self-explanatory after some reading investment has been made, and some won't.

    For the aspects that won't, that's when such a discussion would be ideal.

    However, to ask questions about a body of material with which you are not even remotely familiar, is an exercise in futility.

    It's akin to asking for someone to hold a discussion on a book about NUCLEAR PHYSICS; there is a host of info that must be covered, in order for any and everyone to be expected to sufficiently follow along.

    That is how misinformation is spread, and very well has been the case in the past, lest we would not be combating the foolish notion that "EGYPT is evil and/or pagan" .


    *********

    Kemetic Theology is not a secret society, nor is it intentionally presented as such. It is free for all who seek it, but the caution is made simultaneously, that you take this material, and the practices therein, with the utmost reverance.

    Just because a 12-GAUGE SHOTGUN can be purchased at WAL-MART, doesn't mean that it's intended for everybody, or for everyday casual usage.

    PEACE
