LT334: Ready, Seth, Go

I’M READY

Two days! Can you believe it? Tuesday, February 2. Check your local schedule for the proper start time. 7 pm here in the Central Time Zone.

We will begin with a recap show called “LOST: The Final Chapter”.

Then we get a two-hour premier entitled, “LAX”.


SETH STUFF

A TIDBITS reader writes me that Set – the guy who fought with Horus in battles referred by Thoth – is also spelled “Seth”.

Seth is the god of storms, the desert and chaos. Yes, we have our classic good versus evil confrontation. This indicates the Man in Black may be named Seth. Which is a bit interesting because the pilot of Oceanic Flight 815 was Seth as well. And in a recent post on TIDBITS we mentioned Noah and his role in saving the human race and it so happens that he has a son named Seth.

The reader also pointed me to a website that went into a lot more detail. It shows how the Egyptian god Set (or Seth) can be linked to the devil. In this reading it mentions that Egyptians would put their hands on the head of live goat and confess their sins. Then they would release the goat into the wilderness. Wonder what PETA would say about that?

Anyway, this tradition was passed along to the Israelites as well which we discover in the book of Leviticus which reads, “And Aaron shall ... lay both his hands upon the head of the live goat, and confess over him all the iniquities of the children of Israel... and shall send him away.... into the wilderness.”

Wait a minute…who? Aaron? Yes, Aaron was the priest of the Israelites and he did the confessing for the society. He is the replacement leader for Moses and related as family although the exact relationship escapes me. Family ties. Seth ties. Hmmm…

Oh and did you know the birthplace of most Egyptian gods is Mount Sinai? This is the same place mentioned in the Bible years later where Moses died. When Horus’ daddy died, he was buried here as well. Then three days later he was resurrected and ascended to Heaven to become the judge.
