I’ll never understand why atheists have to tag all their “god not real lol” with “pagan” or any other irrelevant tag
they remind me of the children I work with who want to tell me the same thing over and over again
yes I heard you here’s your cookie now go away Miss Natasha is actually trying to work here
In case you missed it, my poor Kemetic polytheist comrades, I really wanted to spell this out.
According to Rick Riordan and his Egyptian series…
Set is an evil villain
Bast is literally someone’s pet cat named Muffin
Djehuty lives in Tennessee
Sobek lives in New Orleans (and is a villain)
Sekhmet can be defeated in combat by a teenage mortal (and is a villain)
Isis is Egyptian (SHE FUCKING ISN’T, PERCY JACKSON FANS, SHE IS FUCKING ROMAN) and likes to possess teenage girls and turn them into Jedi
Anpu is physically romantically involved with a teenage girl (And he’s losing in a love triangle. To a teenage boy.)
Also as near as I can tell Horus is some kind of glorified pokemon.
In direct contrast, American Gods by Neil Gaiman features Bast as a cat who is very intelligent and skilled at opening doors which a cat could not, Djehuty and Yinepu run a funeral parlor in an American city named Cairo, Loki fucks everything up, and there’s respectful portrayals of everyone from African tribal deities to Norse and Kemetic ones, there’s eastern European deities… the list goes on.
