"Ptah was the chief god of the ancient city of Memphis. He was a creator god who brought all things to being by thinking of them with his mind and saying their names with his tongue. He was unique amongst Egyptian creation gods in that his methods were intellectual, rather than physical. According to the priests of Memphis, everything is the work of Ptah’s heart and tongue: gods are born, towns are founded, and order is maintained.”
-Yes, at one time, unlike today, religion and the concept of God was an intellectual understanding. The very concept of science and astronomy etc. as we know it was once indistinguishable from the “duties” and “workings” of the gods. This is why the ancients were able to build the Pyramids and the Parthenon etc. and other temples that we can not reproduce today with machines. Only the wise will understand this.
