About the Reformed Kemeticism SIG
The Reformed Kemeticism SIG is a "reformed recon"-oriented board focused on Kemeticism and related ancient beliefs. The primary purpose of this is to develop a modern Kemetic religion that is strongly informed by academic information on ancient Kemetic beliefs and practices. The idea of "Reformed Kemeticism" was sparked by this post, "Is It Time For a 'Reformed' Hellenic Paganism?". Like Hellenic polytheism, Kemeticism cannot reasonably be recreated as it was in the days when it was the state religion.
In this forum, we will attempt to create a modern Kemetic religion that fits the situation modern Kemetics find themselves in. Amongst other ideas, this include the concept of Kemeticism being "in diaspora", which rules out the option of, for example, celebrating holidays with large masses of people, or having a pharaoh. These ideas might offend some of the more strict recons. There are, however, plenty of groups that they might find more welcoming to their ideas - this SIG is not, and will not try to be one of them.
