The notion about the Emperor wanting to be a god and not caring about humanity comes from the mouth of Erebus in False Gods. Erebus said that while disguised as Sejanus to manipulate Horus into joining Chaos. Chaos, let alone Erebus, is not known for honesty when manipulating pawns. And whats more, Magnus was there telling Horus not to listen to Erebus, and Horus said he knew it was not Sejanus, and even mused that Erebus likely cooked it all up.



So no, the Emperor does not want to be a god.

“only the truly divine deny their divinity. It’s written thus in countless human cultures. He never denied his godhood when he first came to Colchis to take me into the stars. You were there. He witnessed weeks of celebrations in his honour, never once rebuking me for lauding him as a god. And since then? He has watched me crusade for him, never saying a word about what I’ve done. Only now, at Monarchia, did he bring down his wrath.”

Excerpt From: Aaron Dembski-Bowden. “The First Heretic.”

Just because he doesn't want to be a god, it doesn't mean he isn't a god.

The Emperor told Lorgar multiple times not to worship him before Monarchia.

And I know that. I also made a thread posting links (ones that are peritted) to lore from 1st Edition Rogue Trader with the shaman origin. Someone denied the shaman origin was printed and I decided to correct them.
