Well my Belief is they are!!

Well if you think Really Hard ...

There are 2 Keys that Combines all ( Main ) Gods to Lesser Gods to Demi Gods !

In Every Religion to Mythology the Greek to the Norse to the Egyptian to the Sumerian Etc..

1) Virtues
2) Attributes !

Now as Today View Of Christian Religion ...

People don't stop and think ( Main ) God ! is !! God YhWh Elyon etc...

Christian Angels are like the Lesser Gods ( In my Eyes ) in Greek to Norse mythology Showing Virtues to Attributes aka Occupation

Right ?? just like Pagan Religion ... if you View Angels ( the Messengers ) like Lesser Gods ...

Christians has a Demi God Like Pagan Religions: what they call Jesus ... the Christ ...
with a twist he one of the Same as God ....

For example :
Jesus Christ in comparative mythology
en.wikipedia.org...


If you view the Main known Angels Virtues & Attributes There Kinda like those Mythology Lesser Gods ...

let see
Greek Norse Egyptian
Lucifer = to Hades Loki Set...
Michael = to Athena Thor Sekhmet,
Gabriel = to Thanato Hel Anubis

Jesus = to Asclepius ?? Horus

just to show the similarity's

What a poignant statement it was when it was said that history
is doomed to repeat itself, religion past and present is used to
control the masses, you could never convince the masses of
this but its just the truth, if someone tells you that your life
must be lived a certain way or else, that's controlling them.....

Religion is simply one of the best means of control because it
uses no actual tool other than shame, guilt and fear to control
an entire populace, for money spent it is probably the cheapest
form of control, also it uses the idea that you cannot hide from
this type of control because it follows you everywhere you go
and even after death!

Living a life devoted to fear so that just in case there is an
afterlife you might have made the right choice of which god
controls it and just maybe he will let you in is not only completely
illogical its just plain ridiculous.

Nothing wrong with anyone making up their own gods for good or ill, or however they may choose to interpret something. It's how gods were essentially invented to begin with.

They (gods) fill an emotional and psychological requirement in 'attending' to all the things outside the seeming power of mere mankind to control or attend to.

From a fantasy perspective, since the OP design is fantasy, we can toss in a whole multiply inhabitable planetary system with several 'Earths' and attendant moons such so to satisfy all the many incarnations of moon gods, and regional gods.
All the Earths and Moons can be easily travelled to via any means you desire to imagine, whether it's stargate, chariots pulled by angels, magic doorways, Hogwarts trains, etc.

Anyone desiring to dedicate their lives (and afterlives) to worship and patronage of something generally accepted as 'evil' can thus have room and real estate to do so.

Superman. Or Goku. Or Dr. Who.
kinda jk.

More seriously, as a disclaimer for me to What I believe: this isn't what it looks like. You've always been my one and only. (ish)

Now, for the fun of the conversation:
I'd have to do the whole reincarnation thing, where you're rewarded or punished for your actions, kinda like karma, but with more immortality. In theory, you could keep accruing knowledge. i would want access to that knowledge. I would ultimately be accountable for my actions, and not others'. (At heart, I'm a good guy, so I wouldn't be too worried.) Or if I did mess up, I guess I get a chance to do it over. I just don't want firey damnation or nothingness. (I guess that after the fact I wouldn't mind if it is just nothing.)

Okay. Now I know what I want. Same as above, but also with a reality of Karma. Can you imagine how pleasant everybody would be, for the most part, and voluntarily? And I'd keep gaining precious information. Score!

Enlightenment or ascension would be cool.

Druscilla, this is simply the best Thread Post ever.
Seriously, awesome. But my answer is a bit different. Here goes, off the top of my head....

YOU are the lucky winner of $300 billion and a God Partaaayyyyy!* (*check details inside to claim your prize)


We could gather all these gods into a room, say we send them a notice from Publisher's Clearing House Sweepstakes from Ed McMahon telling them that they've each won $300 billion dollars (a god needs a LOT of money to be impressed), AND a GAWD PARTAHY, where there will be young unblemished roasted lambs, hundreds of virgins lounging around in skimpy clothing, both men and women, fine wine, ambrosia, 70 innocent men ready for sacrificial beheading, a couple roasted bulls on a spit, several new temples with no names yet chiseled into their adornments, and 30,000 priests in linen robes or 1980's pinstripe suits chanting and glorifying them based on any reason or accomplishment they desire.

For entertainment we will have 750,000 men battle hand to hand with swords, pikes and spears and see who has the ol' momentum on their side, or if the blood gets up to the horses' bridles or not. The winners and survivors will then be stoned to death.

As well we will have a fun DNA trivia night, where the gods can answer some of the basic trivia questions about the origins of DNA, the 16 Human Accelerated Regions and how chromosomes fold over and conserve extant codons in a separate chromosome. Explain spooky action at a distance and how did a dove come back to Noah with an olive leaf in its mouth only 43 days after the first mountain peak showed after the flood?.....Stuff like that, lots of fun.


We will invite the anti-gods too, the devils and the demons and the fallen ones and the elementals and divinities, the sprites and fairies and leprechauns and gnomes and earth spirits. We will not have to pay as much for them to come, perhaps Ed McMahon can only offer them a VW Beetle and a goat, apiece.

We will have a Casino Night, but of course, them being gods and all the House will lose abysmally. Charlie Sheen and Russell Brand will be the stand up entertainment, along with a performance by ABBA.

Once they are all in this room, we have them all arrested, and submit each's holy scriptures as material evidence A, and then select testimony from the victim, mankind, as corpus material evidence B.

And we move on, with a new Earth, and a new Dawn for man.

The myths are based on real people, beings, ET actually, entities and some dark hats.

However, there is a huge amount of metaphor in them as well for inner processes.

Unless they happen to be a Solipsist, in which case, you can't argue with them no matter what you say.
If you're unfamiliar with Solipsism, well ... [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solipsism]Clicky --> Solipsism

Somewhere along the Upper Nile once lived a tribe who had a saying: 'may God be far from us.'

If all the gods of history were real, present and alive today, their behaviour would quickly confirm the wisdom of the atheist.

I think your post assumes one must follow a God of some kind to access the afterlife which I believe not to be true. However, if I have to play by the rules of the thread I would create a symbol for my own GOD, the GOD would represent life, spirit and consciousness of all planes of thought and existence. I would not worship it but I would channel any appreciation, love, respect and any other energies into that device.

When an atheist passes it is my opinion that they will be first to see the true after life, religious people will bring their guilt and other conditioned expectations which will create manifestations around them. I can imagine a Christian for example expecting a heaven of clouds which will last however long before they realize how foolish they were to project those ideologies into the afterlife.

I'd chose "Greek Goddess Hera", and try to stay on her "good side", as she helped ( looked out for) Jason as he went on his " Quest of the Golden Fleece", and such.

I would think I'd have a chance to get by if I praised her and reminded her (a lot) of her Beauty and wisdom etc...


Plus she is HOT!

Gods are generally pretty immoral. And stupid. And random. And immoral.

I imagine I would become like that Blade person or Buffy the Vampire Slayer only hunting Gods and silly people sacrificing their uncles and extended family so they can win the lottery. Though I'd probably let Elvis and Andy Kaufman live. They're Gods too right?

Hands down, the Sumerian pantheon. All of them.

Why?

Because they evolved into the Babylonian pantheon, which moved North becoming important elements of the pantheons of Ugaritic mythology, who in turn morphed into parts of the Hurrian pantheon, which became the Greek pantheon, that dissolved into bits and pieces of the Norse pantheon. A handful of Canaanite, Phoenician, Hittite, and Hurrian gods also became part of the Egyptian pantheon too, so I'd have a whole plethora of roads open to me then!

I could worship Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte, Shaushka, Qadesh, Aphrodite and Freyja all at once. Or, I could worship Enlil, Il, Ba'al, Adonis, Zeus, and Odin. Or, I could worship Enki and Ea, and A'a all at once. Or, or, or, or...

* head explodes *

But yeah, that's my choice.

Fun thread!

I'm glad I read some responses before responding. This is pretty much what I would have posted.

The question in the OP is literal for me. I don't have to pretend for this exercise.
