Are ancient Egypt's gods dead and buried?
I'm intrigued by the Turin Papyrus. It documents the life spans of Egypt's gods and goddesses in a detailed list. It records that these supreme beings lived between 200 and 3,126 years.
If you can conceive, even for a moment, that they existed, then who were they? We're told that they were the First Timers of the age of Zep Tepi. This was a golden age ruled by a race of beings called the Neteru, some humanoid, some hybrid.
An ancient text from the eighteenth Nome of Upper Egypt describes a whole necropolis of gods.
