With having more than one “god” being worshipped by the people, many religions have been created in the future to be carried on to the other society, Egypt.

Do modern dictators use the same methods to rise to and maintain power as the pharaohs did in ancient Egypt? Have you ever wondered what methods pharaohs use to gain power? Dictators gained power in very different ways when compared to the methods that pharaohs used. Although Kim Jong Un is usually thought of as the crazy dictator of North Korea, he actually has more than one side to him, he may act the way he does because he inherited power from his father.

It is believed that after Isis (Osiris’s wife) found Osiris’s dead body in Phoenicia, so she got his body back to Egypt and buried it. Set (Osiris’s brother and god of storm and violence) came to the place where the body was buried, tore the body up into pieces and scattered those pieces all over the country.
