“The worship of gods in animal form may seem strange to some of us. Many early Egyptologists were appalled to find that the Egyptians worshiped gods in animal forms, and called the religion ‘primitive.’ But the Egyptians’ way of seeing aspects of God in the world around them warrants a second look. Some modern scholars suggest the concept of many gods who equal one God is similar to the concept of the Christians Trinity–a mysterious but deliberate way in which the Deity reveals itself to humans.” – found on a plaque in the Egyptian exhibit at the Chicago Natural History Museum
BTW NOTE: No, no. Sigh. This is not how the Trinity works.
