Religion of Ancient Egypt permeated
every part of life. There was no science to explain simple concepts
of nature. The rising of the sun was not explainable by a model of
the solar system and they had no idea the Earth itself was turning.
The lack of scientific facts allowed mythology to develop and a religion
based on the explanation of nature to form. For example, a god sailed across
the sky as the sun, the Nile river flooded because the gods sent the water.
The Egyptian religion was mostly concerned with The
Biggest Question of All; The Afterlife.
