I mean it sounds likely but where are you getting your information from? I'm an Egyptologist? This is literally my job But if you want a source read Silverman D 1991 Divinity and Deities in Ancient Egypt In J Baines L Lesko & D Silverman Religion in Ancient Egypt Gods Myths and Personal Practice Ithaca and London Cornel University Press 7-87 Thanks for the sources I had just never heard about that fact before No worries! I realise I put a full stop instead of an exclamation mark at the end of this is literally my job which might have sounded harsh so I apologise! This is a very pure interaction this is exactly how you should react to hearing new information that you're skeptical of or don't immediately believe is true take note reddit Meme
