Meme: Amun

Meme-y goodness. Per ususal, I reworked the markup to be XHTML Strict compliant (down with tables!) edited for grammatical errors, and normalized the character set (someday Windows will make it out of the mid 1990's). Oh, and those supposed 99%'s are probably because I'm the first in my "age and gender" category to take the test.

Indeed, you are 87% erudite, 91% sensual, 41% martial, and 58% saturnine.

Amun was a mysterious God indeed. His very name basically means “what is hidden,” “what is not seen,” “what cannot be seen,” and though even his form was said to be “unknown,” he was depicted as a man with the head of a uraeus (cobra), or a man seated on a throne and holding in one hand the sceptre, and in the other the ankh.

All secrets aside, what we do know is that Amun was the Egyptian King of the Gods, not unlike his counterparts Zeus (Greek mythology) and Odin (Norse mythology). With his ruling might over the Gods, Amun soon became associated with the Pharaohs.

Being responsible for the creation of the world, it is not surprising that he was also the God of fertility, reproduction, and sexual power, and thus also the God of agriculture. With the combined powers of regeneration and royalty, Amun became linked to the sun and the great God Ra, becoming known as Amun-Ra, which pretty much consolidated his status as Supreme God.

In spite of Amun's political ascension, he also enjoyed popularity among the common people of Egypt, who came to call him the vizier of the poor, the protector of the weak, and an upholder of justice.
