    I think that all these facts sre true indeed and it was a great help indeed. You see it has helped in my Ancient Egypt project inmy school .As I am a 9 year old the teachers have given us a 20 page task to be completed in 8 week and it’s not as easy as you think . So this website has been of great help and I am so very pleased. Just a thought but you could have added the sky goddess Nut and take away Hathor the goddess of mother hood . But other than that great website ! I recommend this a lot !

    • Susan Davis

      I learned that by comparing this list, all gods and goddesses of Egypt were conquered by the 10 plagues from the God of Moses and Aaron and the Israelites. Amen to the end of rule of Amun-Ra, ancient and always.

    Great site. Too bad some of the most “basic ” individuals are permitted statements;
    I greatly enjoyed the 9 y.o. who told us he’s about to be required to submit a 20 pg. Paper with a due date of only 8 weeks.
    I have great hopes for this young man. I understand Harvard Law is where the finest are made.
    And good luck with your LSAT.

  14. Kenny

    Where is Seth and Isis
    Seth – controls storms, god of the desert etc
    And Isis, well she carries Ra’s secret name, a source of power the other gods can only drool over.

      • Tiger

        No I pretty sure thats the way it went i might be wrong but that is pretty much what I’ve read everywhere so yeah

  19. Lillian

    There needs to be Set and Isis.

  20. Raytrek

    I’m a fan of Wadjet, that’s a goddess associated with the Cobra, protector of Egypt and even protector of Ra at times, linked to the Eye of Ra, as she nested on his crown, and in that role went from spiting venom into the eyes of her enemies to spiting fire instead. She had become so revered at times she was considered one and the same as MUT, second on the list. I am not exactly sure if it was referring to her or Apep but I seen a quote say “To be respected but never trusted” given Wadjet is considered extremely good I guess I mistook it for a comment about Apep, who is a major snake or serpent antagonist of Ra.

    Either way, I think she is cool.
