" that extent, they are not meant to be taken literally. The Nisut has said that gods do not have sex, because sex is a very mortal-specific act"

I'd have to find the thread, and forgive me if I'm wrong, but I believe it was that gods don't have sex with humans, but with each other.

I do believe the gods are imperfect. I don't think that's at odds with Kemetic theology in the slightest. There are religions where the gods/God is perfect, all-knowing, all-seeing... but that's not our gods, IMO.

For example, take the blind form of Heru. It's suggested in mythology that he is weaker in this form. This is an imperfection.

I'm not directing this at anyone in this thread, but I find people have a double standard in regards to mythology.

On one hand, mythology has been changed by humans, and had been interpreted by humans- who will make human mistakes.

On the other, if one were to say "myths are human and may be mistaken, therefore I will pay no heed to any and go on my intuition alone"- I think the majority of people would find that unwise.

I think most myths are divinely inspired truths. Even the ones that contradict. It may hurt the human mind, but if we can wrap our minds around syncretism, then I don't see why Heru-wer and Djehuty can't both be world creators in a way we can't truly comprehend.

Your story is truly touching. Thank you for sharing it.

I've experienced it too. To add a different angle, I think our gods are busy- and they aren't necessarily omnipotent or omniscient. Meaning that while they're dealing with other things, they may step back from us. That doesn't mean they don't love us, it's just a matter of patience.
