Everything they teach about Egypt in most schools is distorted. The people of Egypt called their country Kemet not Egypt. Kemet means black land. Egypt is a Greek concept. Egypt is derived from the Greek word Aegyptos. The greeks called the kemetians  language hieroglyphs, but the people of Kemet called their language Medu Neter. Even the names we learn of the gods are wrong. Isis Kemetic name is Aset. Anubis is Anpu. Horus is Heru. Osiris is Wesir. I’m doing research to find as many of the true Kemetic  names that I can. 
i posted this 4 months ago and it has gotten over a 1,000 reblogs…So i’m sendin it back into rotation. Power of knowledge !!

The Greeks also messed up when they interpreted the religious system. The worship of one God in many forms is the deal. Not multiple Gods. They did not worship the Sun, it was the manifestation of God in the sun, the water, the moon ect. What each element represented.


I feel like the inter-language change of country names is hardly anything new (Japan vs. Nippon, for example), though for Egypt it is at least notable in that the entire modern world calls it Egypt and is generally ignorant of what the ancient Egyptian would have preferred to have called themselves.  Hm.

As to Egyptian hieroglyphics (in the formal sense, not the cursive forms), they’re missing a heck of lot of vowels! For the most part, anyway.  So Anubis is technically:

…And apparently is was vocalized as Anapa?  So that’s all over the place.  Trying to finalize a deity name in the way that doesn’t confuse people and force you to explain yourself (seeing how most Egyptologists seem to use the Greek names in spoken conversation) can be tough.

I’m also curious to see sources on the whole “Egyptian gods as the maifestations of a single deity” theory.  I’ve never heard that before myself, and the mythos deals heavily with the political and interpersonal intrigue of the gods in a way that wouldn’t suggest monotheism.  Also wouldn’t that also explain away Akhenaten’s cult of Aten as being such an upheaval of Egyptian religion at the time?  And even that was more along the lines of monolatrism than anything.

Aaaaaanyway
