I've been downloading a lot of cable shows from iTunes to watch while I'm languishing at home. Last night I watched an episode of Digging for the Truth from the History channel on the Giza pyramids.

They had an "expert" on who believes that the pyramids could not have been built by the Egyptians, but where rather built by refugees from Atlantis who also had managed to escape Atlantis with their extensive archives, now buried in the sands of Egypt.

This is, of course, completely nuts. Everyone knows that the Atlantean Goddess, Apollymi, destroyed Atlantis and all her people in one fell swoop to avenge the death of her son, Apostolos. No refugees could have escaped her wrath.

And if you don't know what I'm talking about, you clearly have not been reading enough books by Sherrilyn Kenyon...get thee to a bookstore!

Mostly the other episodes have been fairly sane: although it was lovely to see how the Atlantis myth got Zahi Hawas' hackles up to the point where he himself climbed with the host of the show into the heights of a pyramid to show off the builder's graffitti, himself. It was absolutely brilliant.

Okay, it's time to do a little more puttering about the house.

Apollymi was a vengeful goddess, for sure. Too bad she chose the wrong friend to see that Aposotolos was raised by a loving family. Having read Acheron (and others of Sherrilyn Kenyon's books), the gods are more messed up than humans (at least in her world).
