Man is a "creative son-of-a-gun!
Which one is your favorite and why?
Hi qwark! I am big on Zeus myself. The mythological father of the gods. What a complete bastard!
Last time I saw Zeus he was chasing a little chick around a tree on earth!
He was a walking "erection!"
You know that! Just look at all the kids he has.
it's gotta be genetic...eh?
Dionysis or Bacchus the god of wine and intoxication.
Now that is a character.
All religions basing themselves on a mystical "GOD" concept have 3 doctrines in common.
(c)belief in "god"(undefined)
Mythology is exactly that...Myth. It's proven to be not real.
On that note- Zeus was the most prolific of them all.
Zeus was a master smiter! Loved his family! They were a fine mix of the human condition personified.
An essential ingredient in a well rounded psychological understanding of life.
Yet to come across any perfect god character in my terms. But just for the sake of selection i might pick some from pagan god's list. Or will go with Erebus or God of time (Cronus).
I like throwing lightning bolts and causing "THUNDER!" with my magical hammer! The damned thing was like a "boomerang!" I could throw it at an enemy, destroy it and it'd fly right back to me!
I had a belt that gave me the strength that only we "gods" can possess! Oh yes, My name is THOR!
PS....I used to like war too, when I was a kid, but when I grew up and my testosterone levels dropped, I gave it up."
Jupiter and I just hang around now watching the damned human fools on earth screwing up....we're easily entertained...:-)
Psychology takes many of these entities seriously in therapy because of the archetype.
I have met Aphrodite many times, but I do know it as a projection of my inner feminine, which is why Aphrodite takes different forms for different men.
Thank goodness for that! Otherwise all men would want the same woman as a partner.
I believe in God, myself...
but if we are talking about mythological characters, I think that Testicles, the Greek God of sex, is kinda cool
Thor and Zeus both knew "god" when he was a kid.
They said he'd never grow up to be much. He's kinda "psychotic."
By golly, they were right!
Woden chimed in and said ya know, "god" said he created the first 2 people on earth! The little scamp lied! I DID!
Kids! Always lookin' for attention! Jeez!
Let's go East...I've always thought Kali "The eater of worlds" was pretty awesome.
And Siva, the Lord of the Dance of Creation. Fascinating stuff.
@ Greek One I got a kick outta that.

Was Thor a merciful god, and how did he compare to Zeus of Greek legend? Were they the same?

i want to know, do you believe that someone with the power of Jehovah through his son Jesus Christ (for example, a pastor, prophet etc)can heal someone with incurable disease like HIV AIDS, Cancer and also have the power to chase out evil and demonic spirits?

Hi friendsJesus prayed to the Creator-God Allah YHWH; whom he describes sometimes as God- the Father; and he used medicines to cure the diseases; this is the source of his signs he performed with the will of the Creator-God Allah YHWH.This is the essence of Jesus teachings and his person.Do you...

There was a subject discussing Jesus as being the Son of God. I thought sharing the other great religion's basics is a good thing. In general, matters of spirituality are more like matters of love. The subject is usually the last one to know that their lover is not being faithful. That...

Is all of this "Yeshua" and "Yahuwshuwa" some aversion to translating his name into its English equivalent?If that's the case you might want to remember that spelling his name in Roman letters at all is still a phonetic translation and thus still inaccurate. If you really want...
