I can't resist...

(did a little copy editing)

Scene: Ra Revivalist youth group, glee club:

Ra is the sun god
Ra is the fun god
Rah! Rah! Rah!

Hehe. Thats amusing.
Also, I checked Set, which as you probably know is a disambiguation. So I added Set (god) to the disambig page, hidden behind In egyptian mythology. I don't object to using deity either, but we should set the standard now before some mythology-nut registers and starts creating fifty gazillion articles. It'd be good to have some rules on that before it becomes an issue. Drew R. Smith 09:31, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
Didn't Samuel Delany make his name with a novel about Egyptian gods many years ago? I think it won a couple of prizes -- I read it a long time ago and wasn't blown away by it.... Hayford Peirce 17:30, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
There's a Temple of Set revivalist movement, a spinoff of modern Satanism. Howard C. Berkowitz 17:34, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
As far as disambiguation, the general rule that I use is to disambiguate with the workgroup name as first choice. I'm not sure that Set (religion) would be unambiguous, though. Howard C. Berkowitz 17:36, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
It was Roger Zelazny's -- he and Delany came along at the same time, wrote about a lot of the same themes, and I've always been confused between the two of them.... Hayford Peirce 17:51, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
How about Set (egyptian deity)? I'm sure there are many other religions that use Set as the name for one of their gods. Also, and Idea just occured to me. Why don't we make disambiguated pages subpages of the disambiguation page? For example we would have Set or Set (disambiguation), and Set/Egyptian Deity or Set/Egyptian God or whatever? Drew R.
