    Ancient Egyptian Codex Deciphered

    http://phys.org/news/2014-11-ancient...eciphered.html

    Phys.org) —A pair of Australian researchers, Malcolm Choat with Macquarie University and Iain Gardner with the University of Sydney, has after many decades of effort by others, succeeded in deciphering an ancient Egyptian codex. In meeting with members of the press, they revealed that the codex is actually a handbook of a practitioner of rituals and for that reason have published the converted text as "Egyptian Handbook of Ritual Power."
    The researchers found love spells, a means for casting out evil spirits and even ideas on how to treat ailments, such as one known as black jaundice. They also found multiple references to Jesus and Sethians—religious groups that identified with Adam and Eve's third son, and others that identified with a previously unknown character referred to as Baktiotha—a god-like figure. Because of the mix of subjects in the invocations, the two researchers suggest the document was likely a representative of a transition period for the people of that time. They also suggest that the person who wrote or used the text was likely not a priest or monk (there was a large number of Christians living in the area during that time) but more likely was a scholarly type, using the codex as a means of helping people achieve desires or goals. Some examples, included spells to help a person do better in business, or to help them get along with others. One spell could be used to assist one person in subjugating another.

    So a witch doctor/ancient 'guru', took some notes, and mentioned one of his competitors, (some dude that called himself 'jesus'), and that proves what exactly?

    I guess it sort of 'proves' that cults based on superstition and BS were popular way back when even!

    So what!!

    Any idea who the authors were?

    That's funny coming from you, who mindlessly posts memes from your facebook atheist club pages.

    Interesting article. Of course I had to look around a bit... :)

    http://www.livescience.com/48833-anc...eciphered.html


    It's a great piece of history... of course as with anything... it sets up more questions than it answers.

    Thanks for the link.

    From PaulM's link...as I thought...more ramblings from anonymous heretics...and jokey's excited!

    What a LAUGH!

    The identity of the person who used this codex is a mystery. The user of the codex would not necessarily have been a priest or monk. (just some wannabe 'guru', quite possibly for devil worshiping heathens!...u-huh!:yelcutelaughA:)

    The origin of the codex is also a mystery....Macquarie University acquired it in late 1981 from Michael Fackelmann, an antiquities dealer based in Vienna.
    They've had it since 1981, huh?

    Must have been an important find to wait so long for the big reveal to the world!!

    rofl

    And jokey's EXCITED about the find, cause someone mentioned someone named "jesus"in the book...!!!!

    Can anyone here spell "confirmation bias", for jokey...??
