The God, Nun, is basically the Ocean, right?

I know, and as someone who has a lot of respect for the Egyptians, it drives me crazy when I see people confuse Ra and Horus. They don't understand the difference in headdress. Drives me crazy.

How do you tell the difference between Gods who have the same animal symbol? For example, Khnum and Amun are both symbolized by the Ram.

The thing I've wondered about deification is sure, so-and-so can declare himself or be declared a god, but does it actually work?

I imagine it would be based on the personal gnosis of the people. However, even if that person did not actually achieve Godhood, they can use their powers in the afterlife to help people back in this World, and that in some measure is Divinity. That would be my explanation anyway.

We know that the Pharaohs were deified after death, but were their wives and children as well?

Can one make reasonable changes regarding geography? For example, there are a lot of Natural rivers that run through the place I live. So could a Kemetic worship Sobek, Khnum and/or Hapi there even though these Gods were specifically tied to the Nile?

Why is the snake symbol so prevalent in Egyptian religion?

So you should drink even the water offerings of the Senut?

How do you dispose of offerings and libations in accordance with Egyptian custom?

So each Book of the Dead held individual significance to the deceased on question?

So you can create your own Book of the Dead in accordance with Kemetic Standards? How?

Does Kemetic Orthodoxy view the afterlife as being different for the Nisut than for everyone else? For example, would a subject of the Nisut be buried with the Book of the Dead, and all other Kemetic customs to ensure a good afterlife, or would this be reserved only for the Nisut?

[PUBLIC] Netjer (Our Gods & Goddesses) / Aset, Goddess of Agriculture?
« on: August 20, 2014, 05:29:09 pm »
I have read in some places that Isis or Aset was also an Agricultural Goddess. Is this accurate?

What is the significance of the Goddess Heqet? I know she's a fertility Goddess, but what else does she preside over?

Sadly, it's very hard to obtain any record of specific practices of the followers of Khnum. You might try making Khnum a central part of your daily worship and following your personal gnosis.
