30 Days of Set, Misconceptions

He’s Evil

Their are a lot of mistakes when it comes to Set.  The primary misconception is that Set is Evil.  He is often described as the Ancient Egyptian version of the devil.  His description as evil seems to have taken hold when Lower Egypt took over Upper Egypt, an event that appears to have been by force.  Then the Hittites invaded and were drawn to Set and it was really down hill from there.

More to come as I figure this out.
