Copts

Reader comment on item: L'Institut d'Égypte – In Memoriam
in response to reader comment: Copts are the true Egyptians

Submitted by DEBORAH THE JUDGE (United States), Dec 29, 2011 at 20:15

With all due respect, Ianus, the Copts may constitute 10%, maybe, because they are being murdered and driven out by the muslims, but this doesn't prove that they are of the true Egyptian lineage of antiquity. Even taking into account interbreeding, they show no physiological resemblance. The other indicator was that the ancients were a heavily steeped multi-deity and animal worshipping nation. The Copts are a Romanized Christian sect. I understand that there are those who don't hold the biblical account of Exodus as legitimate or even the belief in God as represented here. As one who does believe in the word, the exodus of not a few hundred thousand depicted by Cecil B. Demille, but more likely around 6 million Hebrew builders and slaves would have decimated Egypt. The judgement plagues and the wall of water pretty much sealed their fate.
