* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Books or websites for a beginner Kemetic?
« on: July 18, 2013, 02:53:42 pm »
I wasn't sure if this should go here or the Kemetic SIG forum.  Feel free to move it if it's in the wrong place.

The more I explore Paganism the more drawn I'm to a Kemetic path.  

What are good books for mythology?  Not just the Gods and who They are but Their stories as well?  

What books or websites in general would you recommend for a beginner?

While I do not follow this path, my friend does. I have read some books on them and here are a few I can recommend based on her. I think she got hers off a blog when starting out.  I am sure there are many more books that are good, that others can recommend.  I do not know if it is what you are looking for, hope it helps.

Temple of the Cosmos-Jeremy Naydler
Red Land, Black Land-Barbara Mertz

These are all by Richard Wilkinson:
-The Complete Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt
-Reading Egyptian Art
-Symbol & Magic in Egyptian Art

There are some stickies and posts in the Reformed Kemeticism SIG that touches on different sources.

As far as starting out since there's a whole bunch to deal with, if you're looking specifically for mythology, I suggest the following:

Meeks' Daily Life of the Egyptian Gods" (very detailed and has their personal interpretation along with information),

Jeremy Naydler's "Temple of the Cosmos" (more philosophy and practice information)

Geraldine Pinch's "Egyptian Mythology" (it has information and interpretation)

Miriam Lichtheim's "Ancient Egyptian Literature Vols. 1-3" (texts are divided by time periods).

Thanks!

Has anyone read Awakening Osiris?
