Lord Simian wrote:Ancient Egypt WERE on the same level, and there is actually evidence of a bit of swiping between Egypt and Greece, if I'm not mistaken.

But there's the civilized world... and the "civilized" world I mentioned. The Romans didn't know much about the eastern civilizations like Egypt, I don't think, until after they were already worshipping the Greek Pantheon, which of course, had been widely spread throughout the mediterranean for who knows how long.


The Romans swiped from Egypt too. The story of Isis spread around most of the cultured world

I dont understand why he didnt think Egyptian mythology was coopted elsewhere.

Egypt WAS occupied by the Greek and Roman empires in different points in history and both adopted parts of it as well

Have you read The Histories of Herodotus? He specifically talks at length about Egyptians and their Gods...

Nope. Maybe I should. I remember it from American Gods though

The Egyptians stole their gods from the Hindus. They were in India and when they were on their way back to Egypt, they forgot a whole bunch of the names though.
SHABBA!

I can't remember which specific Egyptian god it is(I think it was either Horus or Ra), but their story is pretty much identical to Jesus'.

As far as Mythology goes, many stories from many different cultures tend to mirror one another. It's interesting to read Joseph Campbell on the subject, plus study as many different indigenous folktales and myths as possible (not just the obvious ones, but African, Aboriginal, Native American and Middle-Eastern as well).
