Back in the 1980s there was a chiropractor from Michigan who came out to
Global Sciences in Denver a few times, who spoke of these things. I'm
not exactly sure where he got all this information. In essence, what he
said was that each Egyptian god was actually a symbolic representation
of some part of the human body, so that the whole system was actually a
way of memorizing medical information!
The Egyptians were incredibly materialistic. I remember one of my
professors in college saying, "they were obsessed with preservation --
preserving everything, including families, the form of government, their
bodies, and the structure of their society. They did a pretty good job
of it too, keeping everything going for probably around 4,000 years."
Outside of Judaism, there's a tendency for people to minimize its
uniqueness and importance. Those of us who study the Torah intensively,
and have had exposure to other systems, can see how things developed in
a unique manner. There may indeed have been some advanced technology
among the Egyptians, and the Hebrews may have become privy to some of it
at some point, but within the context of the Torah, it is clear that
they had some ideas, at least among their leadership, that were very
different from Eqyptian concepts.
What i wanted to add last night is that there are persistent rumors that
the Ark of the Covenant was smuggled out to Ethiopia during the
destruction of the Second Temple in AD 70. Ethiopia is a big place, and
very rugged. You could lose the Starship Enterprise in there.
Supposedly some researchers recently travelled there and met with
someone who claimed to know where it was. After a lot of run-around,
they were taken to a room. They saw nothing in the room. They were
told by their guide, "If you had been meant to see it, you would have
Another current rumor, which is carefully and slowly being followed up,
is that it is buried under Golgotha, waiting to be dug up. Occasionally
i get bulletins about this.
