    Prefigurations, premonitions, anticipations of what has always only and truly been Christ, obviously.

    Different symbols representing the same thing..

    A mediator between the divine and man.. Existing in God, and emanating from him..

    Like your own inner thoughts and their outward expression (spoken word).. that's all.

    Our connection to god.

    My point is that if they represent the same thing, why would someone with this knowledge call themselves a christian? I mean christianity rejects "false gods" like horus of krishna and says that christ is the only son of god, but if they are the same thing as christ, it makes no sense.. To be a christian means rejecting other symbolic representations of the sun(/christ), like horus. But if a christian acknowledges what is said on the video and puts these other symbols on the same level with christ, the person isnt really a christian, but has broader theistic view than just christianity. Also if some christian would see christ as nothing more than a representation of the sun, the whole religion would lose its meaning today.

    But our relationship to the sun is symbolic in itself. The sun is a veil as well.

    Olemn slammed his hammer and from the sparks on the metal of his anvil came the spheres of the heavens.

    Sayrah blew life into the spheres and they moved. From her wheel she weaved the names of people in to mystery.

    I think our relationship with the sun is very concrete, not symbolic at all.

    The sun is necessary (biologically) for life and our daily rhythms are tied to it. So that is a very concrete relationship.... but it also leads to a lot of symbolism to deify it due to its importance to us and fascination with it.

    Sun = warmth = light = illumination = life
    No sun = darkness = coldness = death

    As a side note, is Horus a "historical figure"?
    He's just a deity within a particular historical cultural/religious faith.
    (Did the egyptians view him as divine myth or as a specific historical figure that lived within a defined time period?)

    I stopped watching when I realized this was mostly bullshit.
    Post something from a reputable Egyptologist and I might pay attention.

    Horus wasnt the main thing there, so an egyptologist wouldnt have all the info you apparently need. However instead of just calling it bullshit, you could perhaps show some evidence of this bullshitting? Shouldnt be too hard if you already have the correct information

    Jesus the Jewish Messiah had little in common with the Egyptian Horus, but Jesus the Christ, a Roman God, is derived from the Egyptian Horus.
