I've seen many speculate over the years that Richard Alpert = Ra, The Sun god of Egypt. However, I have a new theory that I don't think has been discussed on here.
I'm a self proclaimed amateur Bible theologian and according to Strong's Concordance, Hebrew word #7451 is ra'. This word means bad or evil and is used repeatedly in the Old Testament.
So I can draw a theory that Richard Alpert was never meant to connect to the Egyptian god at all. Perhaps Mr. Alpert's name is meant to symbolize he is plain down evil. Thoughts?
