Yes, but he didn't quite have the power to change the mind of the Big House. And then when he came to confront him on the Idea of one god, the pharaoh was against it.

But Joseph... Joseph had the power and was in very high respects with pharaoh. He told him where his inspirations came, and it impressed the Big House, after all, it did save many lives. There was absolutely no contention between Joseph and the Pharaoh, and the Pharaoh actually admired Joseph whom seemed to bless every house that contained him.

It is very interesting!

I believe that there is evidence of a split between Upper and Lower Egypt at the time of Ahkenaton . One region sticking with the old gods and the other more influenced by Ahkenaton's new worship of the sun as the one god.

The fact that Napoleon knocked the nose off the sphinx is actually no more than a myth, sadly..... Napoleon was fascinated by Egypt when he was there and took great pains to study it to the detriment of his military campaign - he would never under any circumstances have stood for any of his troops shooting at any Egyptian antiquity, especially not the Sphinx.

The fact is the nose simply fell off due to thousands of years of errosion.... Boring but true....

The leader of the 1000/1000000 man march (Mr. Farrakhan) also believes that God lives in a giant UFO orbiting the earth, and that he (Mr. Farrakhan) regularly beams aboard to have face-to-face chats with him (God)...... I think we should be avoiding taking any of his (Mr. Farrakhan's) statements or opinions too seriously..... :wink:

It pleases me that you are from Utah, friend Axelcat. I am on the border between Taylorsville and Kearns.
I think that we are far away, but closer than any else that I have met online.

The Napolean theme is a popular myth. I've even heard that he shot at the sphynxs to show his superstitious men that it had no power. :)
But Napolean was very fascinated with it and made multiple discoveries on Egypt's behalf.
