Who was it that tried to erase Egyptian history?
Erich Von Daniken
Robert M Schoch
David Hatcher Childress
There's a few others,
Wow, I never looked at it that way before... all the fantasy about aliens and the pyramids and stuff, The West using sic fi to write out the
historical record. We're supposed to think aliens built the pyramids... lol.Thanks for widening my horizon of awareness about propaganda and
disinformation in regards to Egyptian history.
As far as a few others, the whole western christian ethos has all the figures surrounding Egypt portrayed as white people in the children books and in
Moses, for instance, played by Charlton Heston, for instance.
Heres the (lily white) bible story kids book series
we grew up on
Edit: To clarify, I've always known that history is rewritten to favor the victors narrative on some level. But never quite understood the reason
behind all the fantasy and sic fi about ancient civilizations. Books like Chariots of the Gods in my youth were compelling, at that time they were new
as far as genre. After all this time i can see it in a different light. I understand now its not just some ramblings by misguided people, but
brainwashing and conditioning. Thanks again for opening my eye.
What do you think of Jarred Diamonds book, "Collapse"?
