A better question might be, how come all the hundreds of 'retired' gods aren't gods anymore, but laughable imposters?
Why is there little praying to Baal, or Apollo, or Neptune, or Zeus? Whatever happened to those fun times when a god would come down, get some maiden
pregnant, and all sorts of hilarity would ensue, half-human, half-swan creatures, minotaurs, guys with little wings on their ankles, all sorts of cool
Frankly, these Johnny-Come-Lately gods are rather boring, and seem to be missing in action for the most part, too. I've noticed precious few prayers
coming true these days. That whole 'Peace On Earth, Good Will Towards Men' thing doesn't last past December 26th, if that. Whole busloads of
church groups still plunge over cliffs with regularity, although there is the odd 'miracle' when one or two (more worthy? Not wanted in heaven? )are
not killed on impact.
Maybe the new Gods are running low on battery power and need a recharge. Yeah, that's it.
