Teach the Controversy

PZ highlighted a great t-shirt, but he missed the best one, which I have shown here:

Why aren’t we teaching the Truth about the Scarab beetle, Khepri?

“the Egyptians believed that the scarab beetle came into being spontaneously from balls of dung and they associated this with their religious ideology of self-creation and resurrection. Thus, the scarab beetle was worshipped under the name Khepri (meaning ‘he who has come into being’ or ‘he who came forth from the earth’).

The scarab beetle was worshiped under the name Khepri (meaning ‘he who has come into being’ or ‘he who came forth from the earth’). As a self-created deity, Khepri became synonymous with the creator-god, Atum, of earlier times….in the same way that the scarab beetle pushed a ball of dung before it, the Egyptians imagined that Khepri rolled the sun (the solar ‘ball’) across the sky from east to west each day…”

Resist the brainwashing of Big Science! Accept the Truth!

Also, check out the interesting article “Beetles as Religious Symbols” at the Cultural Entomology Digest.

  1. Hmmm, so that’s why you can’t stare at the sun – -they are afraid you’ll see the beetle! ;-)
