comment Is there an objective source of the origins of kanji?
Nice answer, however I seem to remember some source claiming that the 月 in body parts was a simplification of 肉 which would make sense.

comment Is there an objective source of the origins of kanji?
Well my question is not just motivated by curiosity. I've been thinking I should learn how to tell the difference between those tricky similar kanji and for that I am probably thinking I should go with mnemonics. However I'd like to refrain from learning those arbitrary mnemonics because it gets confusing if two sources are in conflict with each other.

Yeah, if it's just a convenient mnemonic posing as actual etymology.
