No, not really, but that's not the point I was making. This was a superstition derived from the oldest religions and yet people still tolerate this stuff.
A better question would be who do we not know of, what buried heretical work are we oblivious to that we should know. We were lucky that some heretics' reputations proceeded them.
Back in ancient Egypt when the priest wanted to bury someone, they go across the land erasing evidence of his/her existence - they knew how to obliterate the influence of heretics.
It's amusing at times nothing to be believed in as most know. Does have some strangely correct things to say about personality though.
But, in the end who are you to judge?
Assumption is great isn't it?
Actually, your extrapolating the cases of a few pharaohs.
They're just Barnum statements, which Derren Brown likes to pick on a lot.
It's absolute bollocks, and all you have to do is get 2 different issues for the same date from 2 different newspapers and compare then and they don't at all line up.
And on the other hand, what would have happened if the church had just stood away from free inquiry? Science gives rise to technology, Religion just gets in the way.
Yes and? The aim was to remove specific Pharaohs from the historic record.

This is virtually a public outing of a new movement in science. One that I have been eagerly awaiting. I believe the core of the above message is that science can stop religion in it's tracks by way of a biological cure. Religious belief and fervor is a biological/genetic trait. Science is constantly pinning down the 'god region' and is very close to finding the precise genetic markers of religious belief. Just a few days ago it was announced colorblind monkeys were cured with gene therapy. I believe many scientists behind the scenes are currently plotting the same technologies could cure religion. Ideally it can be a therapy with an aerosol like distribution, or could be covertly added to the nations water supply, food supply, vaccine programs, etc. This will not only be a brilliant thing for the USA but for the Middle East as well and all countries biologically held prisoner by this disease. It would mean the complete awakening of mankind and prosperity we can not even imagine.
