Set, Osiris, Ra, and Ptah

Postby Chaos Priest on Tue Sep 08, 2009 8:01 pm

What do these four things have in common?

According to my textbook for my "Intro to the Hebrew Bible" course, the Egyptian god of creation's name was Ptah.

I realize this doesn't really have much to do with anything. I just found it interesting. Out of curiosity Erin, is that your real last name, or is it a pseudonym? And if it is your last name, just what is the source of that thing anyway? I mean, should there be some sacrifices or other rituals going on here? I'm sorry to say that I wouldn't participate myself if that were the case (I'm afraid my god is a bit of a jealous one). I'm just, ya know, curious.

Ptah is a pseudonym. From what I remember, I think that's the source of it.

Yeah, Ptah is a pseudonym. My real surname is something ridiculously British. (There's a Jane Austen character with my name, that's how British it is.)

"Sailor Ptah" was one of my earliest otaku sailor senshi. She was part of a team that I basically created by taking an index of mythological topics and lifting the names that sounded cool.

I did eventually retcon the team to have an overall Egyptian-mythology theme, but by that point I didn't have the energy to rewrite the whole epic Silver-Millennium-era fic that they were a part of. So there are a couple of half-finished drafts of it languishing on my hard drive.

Maybe I'll dust the team off and draw them some time.
