I don't have to back up a claim when it is the general understanding.
What you consider to be "general understanding" or "general belief" is evidently not as general in this particular community. You can do a survey
if you want, to test that out. Anyways, don't state that your understanding of something is "general" understanding, when you haven't yet
measured the "general" population on this bulletin board. At this point, it appears to be in debate. Is it the eye of providence/god, is it the
eye of horus, is it the eye of osiris? You are one individual in this debate- claiming that it is nothing but the eye of providence/god. If you
don't want to back up your claims, that's cool, but don't expect other people to do something that you won't take the time to do yourself. We
need a level playing field if we want to have an intelligent discussion.
I simply ask for proof, not that the eye also represented stuff in Egypt, but I demand the proof that the Eye of Providence, and the Eye of Osiris are
How do you know that the "general belief" is that they are not related? Where is that idea coming from exactly, your opinion, an article you
I demand proof that the Eye of Providence is being used for Evil, which is a very stupid comment.
Another assessment- saying that a comment is very stupid. I guess something is very stupid when it does not comply with the "general belief".
Heck, people have been burned at the stake for going against the "general belief", even though their direction was objectively the truth.
Just like the Swastika was used for evil? Symbols can't be used for evil, the people do the evil, and the only people who use the All Seeing Eye are
Freemasons, far from evil.
Symbols become associated with the evil behaviors of people. Money is very much a symbol, its not backed by real gold anymore. But, people use this
symbol for all kinds of things, don't they? Good things, not-so-good things. I guess it depends on what the "general belief" is regarding evil
