This Practice Is Called 'Syncretism' Which Means the Fusion of Religious Beliefs and Practices to Form a New System. the Egyptians Combined Different Deities into the Identity of a Single Entity. the Names of These Composite Gods Were Linked, Creating Names Such as Gods Such As:Atum-Ra - the Sun GodAtum-Khepri - Connected with the Rising Sun, the Scarab Beetle and the Mythical Creation of the WorldAtum-Horus - the Solar God and Protector of the Monarchythe Name of Atum Was Eventually Dropped and These Gods Were Known by Their New Single Names. the Practise of Syncretism, Where an Old God Combines with a New God, Causes Significant Confusion as the Attributes and Symbols Associated with the Older God Merge into Those of the New God.
