Kazim,
I've never read the Egyptian Embalming whatever but
can't you separate their religious beliefs from the history contained in these documents?
I bought this book once called 'Q'. Supposedly a new document found that proves the Bible is false.
I started reading and reading, anxious to get to this document and after getting half way thru the book, I started flipping through to find it. Took a while cause it was only one sentence!(maybe two). And what it had to do with the truth of the bible, I'll never know. I guess you needed a whole book of how to think properly before they hit you with it. I felt it was a form of brain washing.
We are taught to believe what we read, especially textbooks When the truth is, we are being programmed for whatever. I'm sorry, but after I found out Custer was a raving lunatic, not a great American hero, I lost my faith in books. If I read something that doesn't sound right, I call Libraries, Universities, the gov't(don't do that anymore) to find out the truth, if it can be found. I know there are multitudes of websites and videos and books I can read 'proving' the Bible is wrong or science is an enemy of Christ but I know people too well. It is the way people interpret them that's wrong. Those who have an axe to grind with religion or science just get on a soapbox and convince all they can to Follow Me!
I'll read this stuff, all af it with a grain of salt, but I believe eternity is something we all have to face someday, and I want to be on the right side, and all of you to be there,too. Silly. But it's who I am
Becky
