Leen, a few points.
First, don't bother arguing with sage, its pointless, all he does is ramble aimlessly off subject. Speaking to him only encourages more rambling and
flaming. Better just left ignored. If the two of you would like to continue on more I suggest you take it to the religion forum. There is a lot
about religion in discussing ancient civilizations, but the two of you really seem to want to discuss your own convictions, not that of the past
Second, you asked why I laugh at his suggestions. Because they are funny to me. He stretches the details so far that any summation could be made.
And the web page has a tendency that so many others do of first suggesting something, then later using that suggestion as a fact in suggesting more
connections. Let me try to reword what he is saying:
The Dogon were suggested to be descended for Egyptians. The Egyptian god Anubis was linked to Osiris, Osiris was the companion of Isis. He suggest
that Isis was connected to Sirius, so therefore since Isis had a companion, the star she represents must have a companion, so therefore the Egyptians
must have know that Sirius B existed even though they couldn't see it. Therefore the Dogon must have gained their knowledge from their Egyptian
This is like saying I discovered a star, so I name it after my son. Years later astronomers discover this star has a companion. Since I also have a
daughter I must have therefore known that this other star existed.
He makes the same link you repeatedly do of saying the ancient gods were somehow linked to Sirius. He never states his source for this conclusion and
neither have you. I am not opposed to any theory, but I've asked you before what evidence leads you to this conclusion and you haven't presented
edit: Sorry, I see now that you have posted some links on taht, I will look when I am outside of work and see what they have to say.
As a side note Temple along with others make the assumption that Egyptian culture couldn't have happened on its own with out outside help, because
they developed too suddenly from much less. First off it wasn't all that sudden, secondly hasn't that happened repeatedly in history, the Greeks,
the industrial revolution. Or did Henry ford have extraterrestrial help in coming up with the assembly line.
sorry for taking this sooooooooo far off topic. This really has nothing to do with the carved heads. Personally I don't see anything and think they
are just natural, but that my normally skeptic opinion.
