Thanks for the reply, perhaps I sm too touchy, since my grand children refer to me as "Grumpy!"
But your last post concerning both the "Dove" and the "Owl", gives an even clearer notiion of the relationship of the "Dove" to Jesus, and the "Owl" to Athena/Mary the Virgin, or the "Sophia" or the "Wise"?
Certainly you have heard of "The Wise Old Owl?" and just as certain you must know that Athena and the Mother of Jesus/Iesus/Zeus, etc., is also equated with "Sophia" a word meaning "Wisdom", etc.!
And, it seems you have totally overlooked my words concerning the mis-representation of the "Eagle" with the "Raven/Corvus!"
And you have also overlooked the real meaning of my use of the term "Vegetarianism" to connect Ancient Egypt to the more considered modern Christianity! So called Anceint Sources mention that the Egyptians were mostly Vegetarians, as were a great number of the Early Christian holy men, etc.!, as we might well consider, so were their followers.
