Group Description

Welcome to the Forum of Amun



The purpose of The Forum of Amun is the exchange of useful
information and theories about ancient Egypt. Postings generally
should be scholarly and include verifiable citations of the hard
evidence that supports them. However, alternatives to presently
accepted views, when well researched and presented in a verifiable
format
, will not be denied a fair hearing.
>This list is moderated.


However, the stated purpose of The Forum of Amun does
not
allow for posts that advance such alternative theories as
paranormal theories, Atlantis theories, or other forms of
pseudohistory*, conspiracy or hyperdiffusionist* theories,
alternative chronology, and the like.


Archaeologists, Egyptologists, Historians and lay peoples welcome.


* Terms:


Pseudohistory is marked as a claim of fact for an historical
event where the evidence for the key facts is speculative, distorted
or unsourced; the claim has a political or religious agenda; where
competing explanations for the same facts have been ignored; where
the claim relies upon conspiracy theories, and/or when the principle
of Occam's razor would recommend a simpler, more prosaic explanation.


Hyperdiffusionism is a theory that proposes that the greatest cultural achievements of one civilization can be traced to another, higher civilization whose ideas were transmitted as results of voyages or other forms of 'diffusion' not recognized by mainstream scholars - mainly because they never happened.


Archaeologists, Egyptologists, Historians and lay peoples welcome.
