In other words religion...

Ra was the first pharaoh in the world. Egyptians believed that Ra was the creator of all forms of life. Ra was described as a hawk. He had a hawk head and a sun disk on his head. But he was not the oldest god.

Hathor the Godess of Music

Hathor has a sun disk on her head with horns included. Hathor was a woman (or in other words goddess). She once got tricked by Ra, he dyed the coat of a skin red to make it look like blood, she saw it and drank the so called blood, she got drunk and fell asleep.

Osiris the God of the Dead

Osiris's skin is green to show vegetation. Osiris's little brother Seth wanted to kill him because of jealousy. Osiris is the oldest out of the five children of Nut. People who worked at the mummifying, would put there grave with there goods and riches. He also has a son.

Seth the God of the Desert

Seth is the brother Osiris and as you know wanted to kill him because of his jealousy of his brothers power. He did kill him with putting him in a coffin into a river. His wife healed him with her healing powers, he came back to life and then Seth this time chopped him up into little pieces, but his wife could only make a child.

Thoth the God of Wisdom

Thoth's head was believed to be a ibis, a ibis is a bird by the way. In a book there is two spells if you read the first spell out loud, you can understand any animal and summon fish.

Anubis the God of Embalming

Egyptians believed when you died you traveled to the Hall of the Dead. There Anubis weighed your heart to feathers of Ma'at. If your heart weighed lighter than the feather than you would live forever, if your heart was heavier than the feather than your heart would be eaten by the demon Ammit.

Ma'at the Goddess of Justice

She is the wife of Thoth. The both of them helped out with weighing the heart. The feather of Ma'at is actually a ostrich plume or a feather on her crown. The chief judge in charge of the Egyptian law courts was known as the "Priest of Ma'am".

Amun the God of Creation

Amun was an important god, but there are no stories about him. He created all things. At the same time, he remained apart from creation, totally different from it, and fully independent from it. In fact, he was invisible, so you couldn't have a picture of him! However, if you called him Amun-Re, this allowed people to see him. Then he had a hat with ostrich feathers on, and like all gods with human heads, a beard. Re is another way of spelling Ra, the sun god

Bastet the Proctectress of Cats

Bastet was sometimes called bast. She was the goddess of cats. She is a cat, or has the head of a cat, but originally she had the head of a lion.

Bastet was the proctress of cats. The Ancient Egyptians had a great respect for cats since they protected the grain from mice and rats. Rats can also cause disease. Killing a cat was punishable by death. When a cat died, the family mourned it, shaving their eyebrows to mark their sadness. Cats were sometimes mummified, like people, and their mummies have been found.
