Re: Back to the Future
what is the plot for the 1985 movie back to the future?

The 1985 movie Back to the Future follows Marty McFly, a teenager in 1985, who accidentally travels back in time to 1955 with the help of his eccentric scientist friend Doc Brown. The time machine? A tricked-out DeLorean car!

There's a hitch though. In 1955, Marty disrupts his own parents' meeting, accidentally preventing them from falling in love. This throws his entire existence into jeopardy because if his parents never get together, he ceases to be!

Marty must find a way to get his parents to fall for each other while also figuring out a way to get enough power (plutonium in this case) to fuel the DeLorean and zip back to his own time. It's a race against the clock filled with adventure, humor, and some 50s nostalgia.

does this tie into any mythological stories?

Back to the Future doesn't directly borrow from a single myth, but it uses elements that echo throughout mythology. Here are some connections:

The Hero's Journey: Marty acts as a classic hero. He's thrown into a strange land (the past), faces challenges (getting his parents together, returning to the future), and ultimately achieves his goal through wit and perseverance. This structure is seen in myths like Odysseus's journey in the Odyssey.
Time Travel: While not a super common theme, the concept of traveling through time appears in myths like the story of Theseus traveling to the underworld and back.
Disrupting Fate: Marty's actions mess with the predetermined flow of time, similar to how Oedipus unknowingly fulfills a prophecy by killing his father.
Back to the Future takes these familiar mythological concepts and puts a modern spin on them, making the story relatable and exciting for a contemporary audience.

Re: Back to the Future
could Horus be Set's child in Egyptian mythology? we are going on the word of a female

You're right to question the lineage! In Egyptian mythology, Horus is not considered Set's child.

There are two main stories about Horus' parents:

Most Common Version: Isis and Osiris are the parents. In this version, Set is Osiris's brother, making Horus Set's nephew. This is the story most often associated with the Osiris myth, a central narrative in Egyptian religion.

Less Common Version: Hathor, another goddess, is depicted as Horus's mother, sometimes even his wife.

There's a reason Isis's story holds more weight. Egyptian deities often had complex relationships, and some myths offered different versions of their family ties. However, the Osiris myth, with Isis as Horus's mother and Set as his rival uncle, is the most prominent and well-established story.


what evidence states he is not set's child


There isn't one single piece of evidence that definitively states Horus isn't Set's child in Egyptian mythology. Ancient Egyptian beliefs were passed down through oral traditions, hieroglyphs, and art, and interpretations can vary. However, several factors point towards the Isis-Osiris-Horus lineage being the dominant and more established story:

Prevalence: The myth of Osiris, being murdered by Set and then resurrected with Isis's help, is a core narrative in Egyptian religion. This story consistently portrays Isis and Osiris as Horus's parents.
Temple Inscriptions and Artwork: Many Egyptian temples and tombs depict Isis and Osiris as a couple with Horus as their child. These visuals reinforce the established narrative.
Theological Significance: The story of Isis resurrecting Osiris represents the triumph of life over death. Having Horus, the falcon god representing kingship and the sky, born from this union strengthens the concept of order and rebirth. Set, on the other hand, embodies chaos and disorder, making him an unlikely father figure in this context.
While the Hathor version exists, it's less prominent.

Here's a point to consider about your original question:

Source of Information: Egyptian mythology was often passed down through priests and priestesses. While questioning information is always a good thing, it's important to consider the context in which you heard a particular version of the myth. If it was a source unfamiliar with Egyptian mythology, it might have presented a less common version.

Re: Back to the Future
is Set known for shapeshifting?

Yes, Set is absolutely known for shapeshifting in Egyptian mythology! He was depicted as a powerful god who could transform himself into various animals. Some of his common forms included:

Ox: This form symbolized strength and power.
Oryx: An antelope with long, straight horns, associated with desert regions.
Hippopotamus: Representing raw power and aggression.
Bull: A symbol of masculinity and dominance.
Crocodile: A fearsome predator connected to the Nile River and the underworld.
Panther: Embodying stealth, cunning, and the night.
There are even myths where Set takes the form of another god, Anubis, the god of the dead. His shapeshifting abilities were often used to deceive or overpower his opponents.

Re: Back to the Future
could Set shapeshift and have sex with Isis?

Yes, theoretically within the Egyptian mythological framework, Set could have shapeshifted and had sex with Isis. His shapeshifting abilities and Isis's vulnerability to deception leave some room for that possibility.

However, it's important to understand that this scenario is highly improbable for several reasons:

Opposing Roles: Their core beliefs fundamentally clash. Set embodies chaos and disorder, while Isis represents order and protection. Their established dynamic makes a sexual relationship unlikely.
Isis's Loyalty: Isis is portrayed as a faithful wife. The idea of her betraying Osiris with his brother goes against her well-established character.
Missing Mythology: There's no mention of such an event in the prominent Egyptian myths.
So, while the possibility exists due to shapeshifting, the established mythology and the core nature of these deities make it highly improbable.
