I’ve never understood the stereotype that women are more likely to faint at blood
I mean seriously
what do you think we do every month
THEY WEREN’T SUPPOSED TO KNOW ABOUT THE WEREWOLF THING
AWH COME ON GUYS THAT WAS A SECRET FOR A REASON
I guess we have to come clean about the cult sacrafices too huh
Well now we do
wow my brother was telling me this joke and he said
"if you’re fighting with a woman and she pulls a knife on you, just pull out the bread and cheese and meat and her womanly instincts will kick in and she’ll just make you a sandwich"
then all of a sudden our mom emerges from the kitchen holding a huge ass knife and she approaches my brother asking “sorry what was that?” and he started screaming
100000000 points to mom.
formalainravenweb said: Hi I have been thinking a lot about practicing Kemeticism or Egyptian paganism & I was wondering what were their view of the after life.I have read that Ancient Egyptians believed in many souls & that you face judgement by the Gods by how well you lived by truth or Maat.If you are false you are ate by Amet & some book I read says you are reborn but Im not really shore this is what Egyptians believed but more of a Wicca reinterpretation, don't you end up not existing at all or are annihilated?
How the Egyptians viewed the afterlife depends on the era, really. Their ideas about life after death shifted and changed as the eons progressed. And in the modern era, if you ask 5 Kemetics what they think the afterlife is like, you’ll probably get back 7 answers. It really does depend. There is no doctrine for us.
Generally speaking, when you die, you go to the Duat or Underworld. Ideally, you’d have gathered up all of your parts and pieces before you get there (because your soul is made up of several parts, yes). You have to travel through teh Duat to the Hall of Two Truths where your heart is judged. That’s the place that everyone has probably seen the images of, you know the one:
Your heart is supposed to be weighed here, and depending on what the judgement is, you may move forward as a permanent resident in teh Duat, as an Akh (Enlightened One). Orrrrr they find you’re a horrible person and you get fed to Ammit where your consciousness basically gets destroyed.
I’m pretty sure you had to be a really horrible person in order to be eaten by Ammit, for one. And second, the Egyptians had lots of heka and spells and other tricks to keep their hearts from ratting them out on all the bad stuff they did.
It’s my personal believe that there is room for reincarnation within the Egyptian afterlife paradigm, but I’m sure there are others that disagree with me. At the end of the day, where I go when I die is pretty much out of my hands, so I don’t really spend a whole lot of time worrying about it.
if you’re looking for clarification or information on the old egyptian belifesystem i suggeste reading something of Jan Assman, for example death and salvasion in ancient egypt, that ore the book of the dead :)
