[PUBLIC] Kemetic Orthodox Q&A / Netjer Question
« on: April 12, 2018, 07:51:04 pm »
So one thing I was always curious about since I first came across the house, is there any official stance on the "imported" deities from Ancient Egypt. I'm referring to deities like Resheph, who originated in the Canaanite religion, but was eventually incorporated into Egyptian religious practices. (I can thank Yu-Gi-Oh for making me aware of him). Do these deities get worshiped? Do they ever appear in the RPD? Or are they treated in the same way as other non-Egyptian deities are treated?

I appreciate the responses so far, it's certainly given me plenty to ponder over.  Thank you!

That is indeed some helpful advice.

I grew up in a religious Christian household, but once my father passed away in 2000, it became harder to reconcile the idea of their being some loving deity with the real struggles my family faced after that and towards my late teens, I became disgusted by some of the hateful language against people of other faiths or homosexuals that I completely dropped out. Once I accepted the label of atheist, I have grown extremely wary of organized religion in general.

In addition, I earned a degree in biology and the years spent learning about the natural world have reinforced an evidence-based worldview. It's very, very hard to for me to turn off that voice that tells me none of this is real.

And yet, despite it all, I am still drawn to here. I don't know why.

Greetings everyone,

I am Ron and I first came across the House some years ago and spent a short amount of time hear, reading through the various threads on here, leaning what it was all about. It never ended up coming to anything, and in the years sense I became a strong atheist. However, with that said, there's always been something in the back of my mind that's been drawing me here. I've stepped in off an on, reading through various threads on here. As such, I feel a great conflict and thought I would seek some wisdom here. On one hand, there's something that just feel 'right' here. Maybe it's just my fascination with Ancient Egypt in general, or something more, I do not know. But on the other hand, there's a part that tells me to move on, this isn't where I should be. Has anyone ever experienced such a state themselves? Thank you in advance for whatever wisdom and advice you can share.
