Astronaut Theology: Chariots of the God II

The always-observant Michael Schact pointed out this juicy tidbit- The Mitsubishi RA.

Certainly no relation to the space god Ra, right?
Ra's position in the pantheon is unusual. He is the only god, apart from Osiris, who is definitely said to be not on the earth. Ra, it is said, is an aging god, still powerful, but too old to deal with his children any longer, so he has gone exclusively to the sky to watch over the world. Horus rules over the earth and the gods in his stead, demonstrating the divine right of kingship.- Tour Egypt
