Horus and Jesus: the Egyptian Revelation

Horus and Jesus: the Egyptian Revelation

Much has been said all over the internet lately about Horus, specifically about how the life of the Egyptian God Horus parallels that of Jesus to an uncanny degree of similarity.  You may have seen excerpts from a movie, or an info-graphic which makes these claims. Here’s the hype, directly off of a YouTube Description: Horus=Jesus, Isis=Mary, Osiris=God, Amun=Amen, Apophis=Devil MUST SEE!!!!!

The creators of this hoax, meme, fallacy, hype (you choose the term) have taken a page from the writers of the original Star Trek, where Spock will list four philosophers, three from the fictional Star Trek Universe, and one from earth history, like Socrates to draw parallels and create verisimilitude. In this instance, there is a case to be made for Amun=Amen. But not the rest. But by drawing the parallels, they create a fallacy of comparison, so that the uneducated person will think it is logical. This post will get into those so-called parallel points between the life of Jesus and Horus as we look at the details from the life of Horus, Isis and Osiris.  As a store named after the Egyptian god Horus, or at least, his eye, we felt compelled to create a new info-graphic to set the record straight.  We also highlight the one true parallel construction between the myths and draw our own conclusions.

Songs for the Waning Year

Discover a collection of 22 chants for pagans, nature mystics, Goddess lovers, and those who celebrate the cycles of the year, featuring strong female vocals backed with percussion, guitar, and a choir.

We first got this CD in when T. Thorn Coyle came to the Twin Cities earlier this year.  Chant CD - Sonts for the Waning YearSince then, Songs for the Waning Year and the companion CD, Songs for the Strengthening Sun, have become a couple of our favorites to play in the store.  This is not your old-fashioned dirge-like chant collection. These are songs which invite you to encounter the mystery, celebrate the spirit, and honor deity. Some songs are devotional and contemplative, like the Hecate Chant, and some will get you up on your feet and moving your body, like Osiris Lives.  Others are great for group ritual, like Come All Who Hunger.

The songs on this CD are all written by Sharon Knight and Thorn Coyle, and delivered with a passion that beautifully conveys their love of nature’s cycles.

If you are pagan or goddess oriented and want to lend a fresh voice to your devotions or rituals, then pick up these CDs.  They are fabulous.  Click on the links below for complete track listings and mp3 samples:
