How are the Greek gods different from Egyptian or Mesopotamian gods?
The Greek Gods were worshiped by the Greek populous, whereas the Egyptian and Mesopotamian Gods were not.
The gods in Egyptian myths have different powers, meanings,looks like they have animal heads. Answer: In Greek mythology, the Greeks created the gods in their own image; that's why Greek gods look like humans. In Egyptian mythology the Egyptians believed that the gods are not entirely powerful if they were entirely human, so they made them look half-animal and half-human. The story, plot, setting, and characters, too, were different.
well first of all, Greek mythology isn't even related to Egyptian mythology. you might be confused with Greek mythology and roman mythology. those are related. anyways Egyptian mythology has way different gods and goddesses than in Greek mythology. also Egyptians believed their Pharaohs were gods along with their gods that aren't physically on earth. Greeks didn't believe their leaders to be gods.
Is it true that Egyptian gods tended to be portrayed in form while Greek gods tended to appear in form?
It depends on which culture you're talking about. You're probably asking about the Greek god Hades or the Roman god Pluto, but just in case, here is a list of Underworld gods: Canaanite god = Mot Egyptian gods = Anubis or Osiris, depending on context Greek god = Hades Japaneses death gods = Shinigami Korean god = Yeomra Mesopotamian god = Nergal Norse goddess = Hel Roman god = Pluto Sumerian goddess = Ereshkigal
Pretty much everything: Not only were they called different things but they served different functions and were worshipped in different ways and at different times. While there are SOME similiarities (for instance, Hermes and Thoth have some of the same functions) there are more differences than similarities.
The Hindu faith has many gods, or many aspects of god, depending on the individual. Many pagan and indigenous religions also have many different gods. The more popular ancient Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek and Roman religions (among others) had many different gods that controlled various aspects of the world.
