This isn’t “The Ten Commandments”

I’ve added on article on the Top 10 Myths About Ancient Egypt ( to the list of things we AREN’T interested in seeing in Cairo By Gaslight. The completely erroneous beliefs that: the Egyptians held slaves, slaves built the Pyramids or that the Jewish people were ever in captivity in Egypt are NOT things that need to be encouraged or continued.

This isn’t The Ten Commandments. There’s no Charlton Heston here.

I’d likewise prefer to avoid the silliness of aliens building the Pyramids as well. If, for some future project, someone would like to submit a story about aliens being responsible for the construction of Charlton Heston, I’d be amused to read it.
