Tip: restart thread in a way that encourages polytheists to discuss their many varying gods or restart thread in a way that encourages discussion about Egyptian gods or reconstructed religions. Or, put in journal, link to in signature.
Hehe Egyptian gods are fun. They're way more interactive than many others, they want you to be a friend as opposed to a servant. Anubis was the first god to appear to me, and the reason I stopped trying to be Christian.
I love Eris, too. She's so much fun. If you don't mind your life being utter chaos
Though I don't really see them as gods in the sense that they made the universe, more like creatures that live in it above/outside our normal range of perception. They are still quite powerful and can influence things we can't.
lol I dunno, I suppose some religions see them as demons trying to corrupt your soul, science sees hallucinations/overactive imagination.
Whenever I see someone fighting or putting down someone elses religious views or beliefs the first thing that I think is that THEY are unsure of their own faith, and feel you are somehow challenging it.
Ra is in control of the sun, and also keeps order in place(Along with Ma'at). Without the sun, we would all die, right? Death is a form of chaos. To keep order in place, Ra keeps the sun in the sky and makes sure we get to see it every morning.
That is not the best explanation, but it is the best I can do.
But at the same time, there's no proof that Ra exists either. If it makes as much sense as the other religions, that in turn means that it makes no sense. So "why not" as a reason for believing it sounds rather... silly.
