There is an ancient story of Osiris that tells the tale of his death that was at the hands of his evil brother, Seth. Seth cut his body into 14 pieces and spread the parts throughout Egypt, when Osiris’ wife, Isis, found a part of the body; she preserved it carefully and held a funeral for that part. She also made a wax model of the particular part and it was placed in the temple where it was worshipped. Isis collected the rest
Two of the most popular myths are Genesis and the Popul Vuh, which explains how the earth was created and how humans were created. Genesis and the Popol Vuh creation myth have a lot of similarities and differences which are very important to mention. In Genesis and Popol Vuh myth there are some important similarities of how the world was created and how it was destroyed. One is that in both myths are gods involved. Other similarity is that Genesis says that God created the man from the dust and in the Popol Vuh myth the four gods created the man out of the flesh.
The previous king, Akhenaten, worshiped the Atenist religion but when Tutankhamun took the throne he returned to the old religion of Amunism. Evidence of Tutankhamun’s belief in Amunism was found through a number of scarab beetles found in the tomb and near the body. The scarab beetle represented the sun god Re and his travel across the sky during the day, his ‘death’ in the evening and then his rebirth as the sun the next day. The scarab beetle is represented because of the way it dragged it’s ball of dung out of the hot sand, reminded the Egyptians of the sun’s ‘rebirth’ period. Throughout Tutankhamun’s tomb we find many artefacts that suggest that Tutankhamun greatly believed in Osiris, the King of the Underworld.
The Amduat was the sacred book of the Ancient Egyptians, which was reserved only for the Pharaohs. This book was based on the beliefs of the Egyptians that the deceased Pharaoh would undertake the dangerous journey in order to become reborn. United with the sun god, he travels in the boat of the sun from dusk to dawn. The main purpose of the Amduat is to give the names of gods and monsters to the spirit of the dead Pharaoh, so he can call upon them for help, or use their name to defeat
The young king Tutankhamun was previously regarded as an inconsequential ruler of the 18th dynasty in the new kingdom of Ancient Egypt until the discovery of his tomb, which sparked a worldwide fascination with the life and death of this previously obscure figure. His nearly fully intact tomb was discovered by Howard Carter and his archaeological team in 1922. This tomb generated countless questions and ideas about the life and death of Tutankhamun (Tut). The wall paintings and the artefacts found in the tomb, as well as the pharaoh’s body itself allowed numerous theories to be developed as to how King Tut led his life. However, through historical and scientific research, many of the ideas conveyed by the tomb were proven to be false.
Do you know Moon Landing has many Hidden Secrets with Ancient Pyramids of Egypt The Pyramids of Egypt are still a mystery to mankind. It is an architectural mystery with cosmic precision on planet Earth. It has many more other hidden secrets to say about life after death, preserving human body after death and the way to heaven after death. The pharos of Egypt was that much knee on their life that they made it possible or their dreams come true when they were alive. Nevertheless, a king is born, same time his burial plan was as a massive project.
The eye represents the Great Architect of the Universe (which is the freemasonic concept of god) and derives from an Egyptian symbol called the eye of Horus which represent the eye of the Egyptian god Osiris. The pyramid indicates the relationship of freemasonry with the Egyptian mysteries (Pike, 1938). There are also many other religious concepts found in the film. For example Roy puts a nail though Tyrell's palm and a pigeon flies away when Roy is dying (Saini, 1996). So why did Scott insist on giving the film religious ideas?

However they also share a number of differences because they developed in different regions with different natural influences. Egypt and Mesopotamia were both governed by god-kings. The idea of a god-king was common in early complex societies. A king established his rule by a divine right bestowed upon him by the gods of his people. Mesopotamia was broken into thirty-five separate city-states and “The ruler of each city-state claimed to rule with the support of the local guardian deity…” (Hansen and Curtis 36).
However, the king was not always called a pharoah. This didn't start until the 18th dynasty in 1554 B.C. Before this, pharaoh just refered to the king's palace (“History of The Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt”). The people believed their king was not just merely a man, but that he was a god in human form (Wilson, 14). For this reason, they allowed him to have absolutecontrol over the land, government, economy, people, laws, etc.
