The weakest dictionary you can find still includes
"believed to be" .
Once again "I believe" I can bowl a 600 game because I get doubles
I believe I can fly , I believe I'm a billionaire ,I bleep!
Belief does make anything come true.
You need to ask an adult to help you understand the difference between objective and subjective criteria. This has been a problem for you for months.
You keep trying to disprove that subjective claims can be made on the basis of belief by citing examples of objective claims which can not.
If Brad Pitt is BELIEVED to be cool, then he is cool.
It doesn't matter that you can't fly.
"Cool" is SUBJECTIVE and the ONLY criteria for it is the BELIEF of the people who SUBJECTIVELY apply the term to Brad Pitt.
Without any sort of cultural reference, if I presented you with the body of a deceased Brad Pitt, you couldn't determine one way or another if he was "cool". It's SUBJECTIVE.
Religion is SUBJECTIVE. One person believes that wine is a sacrament. Another believes that all alcohol is forbidden.
OBJECTIVELY it's a bottle of wine.
SUBJECTIVELY (depending on cultural reference) it's sacramental wine or forbidden drink.
OBJECTIVELY Pharaohs were Egyptians.
SUBJECTIVELY they were gods.
ALL gods. Every single one of them are SUBJECTIVELY gods.
If I present you with a picture of Zeus with NO CULTURAL reference, you could not determine whether or not he was a god.
However, present the SAME picture of Zeus to an ancient Greek and they will absolutely be able to tell you that "yes, this is a god".
So, you can keep bringing up bowling and flying and chairs, but NONE OF IT is subjective and therefore NONE of it is a rational critique of my argument.
Egyptians BELIEVED that Pharaohs were gods. Therefore, SUBJECTIVELY, Pharaohs were gods.
AND, since ALL GODS are ONLY SUBJECTIVE, then Pharaohs are AS MUCH gods as ANY OTHER GOD from ANY OTHER RELIGION.
But, since PHARAOHS were ACTUALLY OBJECTIVELY PHYSICALLY REAL, they are different than Thor or Vishnu or most other gods in that they were also REAL.
Therefore, Pharaohs were "gods that really existed" as opposed to Vishnu who is a "god which theoretically existed" or a "god which mythologically existed".
I don't actually know the history of Vishnu, I just wanted to pick a non-Judeo/Christian/Islamist deity.
