    You have to distinguish between "God" and "gods."  In many mythologies (including Greek mythology) specific gods die. 

    In fact, there is a whole category of gods who die and are reborn; this has been linked to Christ:


    And in the relatively well-known Norse mythology, the chief gods Odin and his son Thor (among others) die in battle at the ending of the world:

    Can you conceive of a nothingness void, without stars and other planets. I can't! What ever we may think, God is. He is constantly creating and expanding the universe all around us. We are a product of his creation and just one of infinite numbers of living things in the universe. We find it hard in the conception of foreverness. Infinity is just a label that we really can't grasp as human kind, simply because we know we have a birth and a death and believe that all things have the same. It is part of our DNA.There must be an end to all things...yet is this a fact?Who are we to doubt and have answers to things we really know nothing about?It is much like an ant riding a surf board in the middle of raging water and yelling, "raise the draw bridge!"When we die we have learned that our body decays and turns into basically a form of dust or earth, and in turn we later promote the rebirth of more living organisms To me, it seems this is not an ending, but a never ending revolving of the life process, that we are each a part of in this universe.

    As msorensson says, by definition Gods are immortal and so cannot die. In the movie though they lose their god like abilities and become mortals, then die. So, they also agree that a God cannot die but could become mortal. This though is based on Greek Mythology and some say that these myths were perhaps based on aliens visiting the planet. If this were the case then Zeus etc were just aliens that possessed God like abilities, or at least what looked God like to humans. If there truly is a God like the one that many believe in today, then surely he cannot die as he is an energy that surrounds all of us and energy cannot be destroyed, it can only transform.

    Zeus is  god, not God. I am not current on Greek mythology, but I know that the God of the Bible, the Great I Am who was and is and will be forever, the alpha and the omega is beyond the limits of space and time. He is the Creator, omniscient and omnipotent. He cannot die.

    In Greek mythos gods don't die. Kronos, father of Zeus, is chopped up and kept in Tartarus, hell, for example.

    According to the definition of what God is, God can never die.

      which definition is that? as you can see from the other replies here, there are many definitions of god; no culture has a monopoly, though many think they do.

    All false gods dies...that is the proof of their falseness.
    The True God never die, but can go into death as He wills that he may appear as dead....this He will do so that the false gods will continue to decieve themselves.

      so, basically, all gods die, but some do it for sport?

      where does one apply to become the true god?  is it like american idol?
