Difference Between Ram and Krishna

Some people believe that Ram and Krishna are same. The belief is totally dependent on the theory of 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu. Lord Vishnu is deeply believed to have 10 incarnations on the earth. Ram is one of them. Krishna is also one of them. Krishna came to the earth after Ram. As Krishna is also one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, People think that Krishna and Ram are same. But I think Ram and Krishna are not same. They are different with the following ways:
1. Ram is superior than Krishna because Ram came before Krishna.
2. Ram can be God of Krishna.
3. Ram and Krishna are physically different personalities.

There are similarities too. See the points below:
1. Both are incarnations of Lord Vishnu.
2. They are spiritually same personalities.

Assume Lord Ram as a rose flower. Lord Krishna is another rose. Both are same because both are rose. However, they are two not one. And Lord Vishnu is the flower. So Ram and Krishna are same only in spiritual point of views.

Let’s recall the story of Ram and Parashuram for instance. Unlike Ram and Krishna, Parashuram is also one of the 10 incarnations of Lord Vishnu. When Ram breaks the archer in the palace of King Janak, Parashuram arrives and creates fearful environment in anger. Then Ram politely says to Parashuram, ‘’My lord, I am only Ram but you are Parashuram. You are greater than me.’’ Then after, Parashuram calms his mind and goes from there. This story has clear interpretation that the incarnations are physically different but spiritually same.
