They are all retelling of the same myths.

Shakespeare, for instance, was called England's Ovid and his play, Hamlet, is taken from a Norse play called Amleth and both are based on the Horus myths of a son revenging the death of the father.

Then you have the dispute over Shakespearean authorship issue and the possessors of his works being given the title "Montgomery" which alludes to "Gomer" or "Homer" or "Sumer" if you apply a linguistic principle of the Isogloss which makes these words all the same: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centum%E2%...m_isogloss

You mean if you apply the Principles of Advanced Dot Connecting ?
You forgot to read the actual article you reference.

"The centum–satem division is a false isogloss of the Indo-European language family, related to the different evolution of the three dorsal consonant rows of the mainstream reconstruction of Proto-Indo-European (PIE).
While the division forms an isogloss in synchronic descriptions of historical Indo-European languages, it has rarely been proposed as a genuine phylogenetic division of the diachronic development of the Indo-European phylum".

Name one thing in your dot-connected world that is NOT associated with Horus ? Weeping

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Very amusing.
You really should fact-check, but it appears you don't even understand the concept.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

I don't know, Buckster, that's a hard one.

After all, it's this Old Testament garbage you are peddling here which has a big man who created "everything". Which means, ipso facto, that if the big sky man was none other than the big sky man everyone on the planet can see in the "heavens" that, 1. Everything was created by him, and 2. later written religions, like yours, have done their utmost to obscure and suppress this fact, that our ancient ancestors worhshipped a "star man". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starman_(song)

You need to own up to this Bucky. You are pushing a lot of steaming horse poop on this forum. You need to look up to the sky and see things as they really are. People worshipped sky fairies, not fictional characters in the books you are digging up from godknowswhere.

Hi DB.

You caught my full attention today, but I do not understand the above. Are you saying the characters written about by Virgil, Homer, Euripides, Ovid etc are not fictional characters?

I'm sorry I don't understand.

RE: Ovids metamorphoses
Of course they are fictional. People back then thought that the night sky was heaven and gods lived up among the stars at the top of mountains. And suchlike. What I am saying is that only a tiny number of people read. The rest found their religion in real things like t h e stars and Sun and in nature. Written religions have given us a concept of a metaphysical heaven which in truth is just a linguistic and literary construction. As we became aware that the sky was not home to real beings we turned to the illusory metaphysical world which religious writers constructed for the homeless gods. Moses climbed a mountain to speak to a god who was up there in the sky, not in a metaphysical world. Bucky takes all this of this old testament stuff very seriously. I don't know why. I have an interest in Shakespeare by the way. So I was interested in Ovid. I also have a blind friend so will tell him about these books on YouTube. Thanks.
