26. GODS FIRE: CHAPTER EIGHT: THE ELECTRIC GOD [Quantavolution Website]
... Moses, as a parochial, exclusive, anti-polytheistic device. It may not be so. But if Moses were the Messiah, coming upon a people in distress with a new version of god, there would seem to be good reason why a universalistic uncompetitive god should suddenly acquire the traits of a nationalistic jealous god- keeping monotheism constant. Still this would presume that Elohim, and also El Shaddai, were plugging the gap. However Elohim-Osiris-Saturn, while still a great god in Egypt, had long given way there to Horus-Amon and Thoth. "From the sixth dynasty on, Horus alone appears as the true patron of monarchy" until the end of the Middle Kingdom. [55 Then Seth, who can be identified as the perennial antagonist of Osiris, Horus, and Isis (Venus), becomes the principal divine monarch of the Hyksos until their overthrow by a combined Israelite-Egyptian army. But Thoth is not to be neglected. He is the Egyptian Hermes or Mercury, who bear a caduceus like Moses' Brazen Serpent. Just as Hermes served under Zeus ...

... has occurred to me, on astronomical grounds, with regard to the initial change of sign. It is to be noted that in the old tables of the months, instead of Sirius leading the year, we have Teci with the two feathers of Amen. In later times this is changed to Sirius. I believe it is generally acknowledged that the month-table at the Ramesseum is the oldest one we have; there is a variant at Edf. They both run as follows, and no doubt they had their origin when a 1st Thoth coincided with an heliacal rising and Nile flood. Egyptian month Tropical Month Ramesseum Edf 1.

Ideas have changed rapidly since then. Plate tectonics and the Spokane floods have crept into geology. Punctuated equilibrium and mass extinctions by asteroid impact have become fashionable. It's no longer beyond the scope of science to see the destruction of Atlantis in a Mediterranean volcano or Noah's deluge in the sudden filling of the Black Sea.

The usual assumption is that "what science says" is said indefeasibly. But the term 'science' has two conflicting senses: science as currently-accepted theory (CAT) and science as method. To conclude that method inevitably leads to CAT and, furthermore, that CAT is the end of science is to wallow in ...

... of one nome differing sensibly from those of another.'[4. Changes in religious practices and emphasis among gods also almost certainly occurred over time. The Ptolemies are known as a matter of policy to have supported the Egyptian priesthoods and temples. Hence any given Ptolemaic king probably received different Egyptian titularies or 'names' in dedications or other inscriptions in the various temples or other structures which he built, repaired, or otherwise supported in different parts of Egypt. If a Ptolemy endowed a temple that was primarily devoted to the god Thoth would the priests of that temple describe the king as a son of Thoth or a son of Ra? If he also supported another temple whose priests considered Ra as supreme, would these priests call him the son of Ra or the son of Thoth? Furthermore, if these names were basically religious and symbolic in nature, should we be surprised that the same names or minor variants of them were used in the inscriptions of many different Ptolemaic rulers who provided upkeep or financed additions to the same temples? All male Ptolemaic rulers ...
