What the Ankh it is not.

I was hesitant to put this section first because it immediately mentions what everybody is afraid to mention, religion.  So let’s just man up, say what needs to be said, and move on. It’s critical.

The Ankh is not pagan Christian cross. Followers of Bible and the doctrine of Christ often lack knowledge of history outside of the religious text. This lack of knowledge leads modern Christians and similar religions to label the Ankh as a pagan, gothic, or an even satanic copy of the cross symbol that has represented religions since Christs’ “crucifixion” about 2,018 years ago.

But, the oldest ankh symbols have been dated over 6,000+ years ago.  They were re-discovered on the walls of the Egyptian structures like the tomb of Nefertiti and others. These stone engravings tell stories and give meanings for the Ankh. The ancient gods of Egypt are often depicted as carrying ankh signs. We find Anqet, Ptah, Satet, Sobek, Tefnut, Osiris, Ra, Isis, Hathor, Anibus and many other gods often holding the ankh sign, As well as offering them to the Kings and Queens.

In fact, the earliest symbols of the traditional “Christian” cross was also in some of the same ancient Egyptian engravings, over four thousand years before the concept of Christ or Christianity.

As the Christian era eclipsed the Egyptian Pharaonic era, the Ankh sign endured and was adopted by the Coptic Christian church as their unique form of a cross, known as the “crux ansata”. An elementary Latin name meaning “cross with a handle”. As times passed, the loop of the Ankh was removed. And the meanings were lost as new religions began dominating the world.



In Attempt to keep these fairly short and sweet. We are going to stop here and pick up next week with:
