    it depends on personnel belief. many time people believe that some man are prophet Even they know that this man is same like himself. so it will be better to leave on  personal belief/believe

      I read your  opinion and I think  that When you say Egyptians I think you mean the Faroahs because the majority of the people who live currently in Egypt are Muslims who can never do this practice of pagans.

    If I believed that some man is a prophet,at least the said man would be speaking one of the human languages and would be able to communicate and convince me by his words or deeds.How could the idols or the cow  communicate with you ??

    "When you see your demised father's picture, you think of your father. You don't think of the person who painted the picture" - Mata Amritanandamayi.

    Once Swami Vivekananda was confronted with the similar question by a king - How can one worship God in just an idol? Swami Vivekananda arranged to bring a picture of the king and asked the king's minister to spit on the picture in front of the king. The minister refused to do it saying that it amounted to insulting the king if he did so and even the king would get worked up to punish him if he did so.

    Swami explained "See! Even though this is only a picture, people respect it because they see a representation of you in that picture. That's how people see representation of God in the idol form and worship it".
