Is the Magen Dovid a later iteration of the star of Remphan or is this a misconception spread by ignorance and/or an anti-semitic agenda? The star of Remphan was a symbol that represented the Egyptian deity Chiun as spoken of in the Book of Amos. Xtians and anti-semites claim this is the origin of the Magen Dovid. I am wondering if this is the origin or is this false? The star of Remphan was identical to the Magen Dovid — two triangles. A general Google search will show what it looks like.
