    I guess it's an unpopular opinion on these forums, but no one can reconstruct the names of the Egyptian deities accurately (incidentally, my Egyptology prof explained that today again).

Now the quote this line is drawn from is (luckily) from a German Lutheran pastor, not a Jewish person, but I still think the comparison is extremely inappropriate. Maybe it's different on the other side of the Atlantic, but where I come from, such allusions are touchy at best, and the source...
