Was #Jesus a #mythical figure based on the #Greco #Egyptian god #Serapis?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
Serapis is a…very unusual god, to say the least, and to better understand him, we need to look at his history. The roots of Serapis leads back to both the Egyptian gods Osiris and the Apis Bull (aka Hapi). The latter was seen as the incarnate god Ptah while alive. However,
when the Apis bull died (most of the time due to old age), he was identified with Osiris. Eventually over time Osiris and Apis became more closely associated with each other, until they eventually became one god, Osirapis/ Osorapis. Later, Ptolemy the 1rst of the Ptolemaic empire

Was #Mary, the #mother of #Jesus, based on the #Egyptian #Goddess #Isis?
Um, #NO, and here is why #Round #Two
When I wrote my previous article on the faulty comparisons between Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Egyptian Goddess Isis, I didn’t realize that there was one aspect of the so-called Virgin birth comparisons that could be brought to bear by Jesus Mythicists, and I knew I had to
tackle it (one day both of these articles on Isis and Mary will be combined).
Major Debunking ahead.

Was #Mary, the #mother of #Jesus, based on the #Egyptian #Goddess #Isis?
Um, #NO, and here is why.
Isis was a major goddess in the ancient world, being first worshipped before 3000 BC. Her cult died out during the Christian era, though she has made a comeback in neo-pagan circles. Her cult later became one of the “Mystery Religions” during the Christian era, one of the
competitors of early Christianity. She was often depicted holding her infant son Horus (though Horus in ancient Egypt was most often depicted as an adult).
It is believed by scholars that her cult and some of her iconography (mother and child depiction) was adopted by

Was #Jesus a #mythical figure, based on the #Egyptian #god #Osiris?
Um, #NO, and here is why:
Osiris was originally a nature god who symbolized the vegetation cycle. Later, he also became the god of the dead and resurrection, ruling the underworld. He was both the brother and husband of Isis, and the father of Horus.
So, was Jesus based on Osiris?
No, and looking at the
supposed similarities between the two will show that:
Virgin born?
Nope, he was the son of the god Geb and the goddess Nut, who had…SEX!
Repeat, SEX!

Was the #Egyptian #God #Horus #crucified like #Christ?
Um, #No, and here is why:
#Debunking about to commence...
There are several different accounts of Horus’ death, which involved anything from being stung by a scorpion, bitten by a snake, cut into pieces, etc. Yet none of these state that he was crucified, which makes sense, given that crucifixion wasn't an Egyptian form of execution.
It was, however, a form of execution that was well used by the Persians, Carthaginians, Seleucids and Romans. It was done from the 6th century BC to the 4rth century AD. .If one expected Horus to be executed in any way in the myths, it would have been with a form of execution

Happy 2nd day of #Eid from my parents and me!
My parents took me out for a belated celebration of my birthday and I learned more stories of my mum’s pregnancy with me in Port Said during the 1967 war. They were junior doctors at the time and several times a day at the hospital they’d have to take shelter in the basement.
My parents are from #Cairo but they spent the end of their junior year as physicians in Port Said. My mum tells me she felt me kick inside her every time a bomb fell. That’s where my phobia of thunder comes from.

The second highest ranking officer of the #Egyptian Embassy in #Spain was detained in #Madrid for allegedly abusing his wife and daughter but his diplomatic immunity has protected him from any further legal action. euroweeklynews.com/2019/07/30/con… via @@euroweeklynews h/t @KhaledEibid
“The victim...was made aware of her right to police protection & at first she told officers that she would press charges.According to official sources however, representatives of the #Egyptian Embassy arrived at the scene of the crime to convince her not to make any allegations.”
👆🏽Translation: patriarchy protects and enables male dominance. Sometimes it’s called “diplomatic immunity.”

Love and solidarity with @mashrou3leila. This is utterly ridiculous: #Lebanese church demands cancellation of Mashrou' Leila show. The band are such a great representative of Lebanese artists and they have performed many times already in their country. reut.rs/2LBdlPG
#Lebanese authorities must protect @mashrou3leila from a mounting hate campaign and ensure the band, known for songs tackling social issues in Arab societies such as homophobia, patriarchy & corruption, are able to perform in safety and security. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
On July 12, it was such a thrill to see @mashrou3leila and author @rabihalameddine perform as part of Oliver Beer’s Vessel Orchestra at @Met_Breuer. They make #Lebanon proud and should be celebrated, not subjected to hate.

A few thoughts on the latest sectarian incident in Minya & the disparity between the words of President Sisi & actions of the security forces. The incident itself is like many others. Average citizens form a lynch mob & attack #Copts & their properties
That citizens can form a lynch mob is nothing new or particular to #Egypt. Happens everywhere, and historically even in the US. The issue is one of official reaction, both during the event and in subsequent days.
The police are of no use during the incident. "Reconciliation sessions" afterwards are meant to hide rather than highlight the problem, often to the disadvantage of the victims. Why is that?

#Egypt is hosting an Africa human rights session beginning April 24, 2019, while its government is presiding over the worst human rights crisis in the country in recent decades, 15 African, Egyptian, and international organizations said today. hrw.org/news/2019/04/2…
#Egypt is trying to appear like a country open for human rights delegates and sessions while, at the same time, crushing all dissenting voices and its once-vibrant human rights community,”
“In recent years, the #Egyptian authorities have relentlessly cracked down on nongovernmental organizations, issued the 2017 draconian law that effectively bans all independent work by nongovernmental groups, and prosecuted scores of staff workers of Egyptian organizations.”

Sisi was head of military intelligence when the military sexually assaulted #Egyptian women activists by subjecting them to “virginity tests.” Women who support Sisi are like women who vote for Trump: footsoldiers of the patriarchy
I wrote about Trump, Sisi, and patriarchy here, published day of Trump Inauguration google.com/amp/s/amp.theg…
There are women who support patriarchy bec they accept its crumbs of power. In #Egypt the military - fascists w/guns - & Muslim Brotherhood - fascists w/religion - are not friends of women or feminism. Both have female supporters. I am an enemy to patriarchy & its footsoldiers.

#Egypt: Forcibly disappeared transgender woman at risk of sexual violence and torture.

Fears are growing for the safety and wellbeing of Malak al-Kashef, a transgender woman seized during a police raid from her home in Giza in the early hours of 6 March.
amnesty.org/en/latest/news…
“There are real fears for the physical safety & psychological wellbeing of Malak al-Kashef. #Egyptian authorities have a horrific track record of persecuting people based on their sexual orientation and gender identity...” @amnesty #LGBTQ #FreeMalak
Amnesty International believes that Malak’s arrest relates to her calls for peaceful protests following a major train crash in #Cairo’s central train station on 27 February that killed at least 25 people. #Egypt #LGBTQ #FreeMalak “Due to her gender identity, Malak is at increased risk of torture by the police, including rape and sexual violence, as well as assault by other detainees. The Egyptian authorities are responsible for her physical and psychological safety. They must immediately reveal her whereabouts, and pending her immediate and unconditional release, ensure that she is protected from torture and other abuses.”

Shawkan was imprisoned in Aug 2013 for taking pictures during the massacre at Rabaa square in #Cairo when #Egyptian regime security forces killed +800 in a matter of hours. This article from last year describes the impact on his family of his imprisonment latimes.com/world/la-fg-eg…
From the article, Shawkan’s father: “He (Shawkan) used to sit in the balcony and I would make coffee for him. Last time [I saw him] he told me he misses my coffee, and he wants to get out so I could make him coffee again and we would drink it together like the old days,”
