I guess, Payma'a, that you could say that Apollo and Ra are both the sun, just as Sir Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan are James Bond.  Depending on which movie (or in the case of the Gods, which Culture) would depend on who it was...


Ok... I really like this example!

I know that this is an old thread, but I just wanted to add my two cents in.
For the past 2 years, I've been a relatively hard Polytheist. For me I see each God, no matter the culture as Its own entity with a few exceptions.
As for the way I view the other Gods, I have relationships with some of the Hellenic deities and my mate has a relationships with Hellenic, Aesir/Asynjur, and some Netjer.

It's one big Pantheonistic Dinner Party. :-)

Some guests were deliberately left off the list though. They tend to be a little self-centered and not share with others. ;-P

Em-Hotep-Everyone:

Now this is just me here (all my own thoughts and I do not desire to affend anyone with them). To me All the Gods and Goddesses of the world are connected; more correctly put one in the same. Let me explain: I see them all as their own devinity in their own right, but at the same time they are connected. I suppose the best way to describe it is like a duel personality. I know I (as well as other people I know) act slightly different around different groups of people. If I am at a dinner party full of sports-ethusiests I am not going to begin talking about history. Just the same as when I am around people who are more reserved I am not going to be my usual talketive self. -- I also think of the different god in that they fluid: kind of like our emotions. One day I might feel better than the other. When I am sad I am a different person from when I am happy. And when I am angry most people do not even recognise me. Though, no matter if I am talking to art lovers, sports-addicts or if I am angry or happy I am always myself: never do I change in that aspect. The way the gods were depicted from culture to cultre were simply the design of an artist; a human artist. While there might exist some very compelling similartities between the gods of Mexico, Greece, Norway and Egypt, we do not know what they gods really look like. What one man calls and apple another calls it a manzana... but in the end, no matter what you call it, it is nothing more than what it is.

Just my thoughts :)
