Maybe the Christian God? Or Chaos from Greek mythology?

"God."

"God isn't a myth."

"How do you know?"

And thus, the arguement begins!

@joshmightbe: The Hindu God has multiple personality disorder, each deity is a physical manifestation of an aspect of God. They appear to be separate beings, but they are really one who with many names and faces. Confusing, huh?

A Monotheistic god is obviously more powerful than polytheistic gods and goddesses.

That multi-armed blue chick from the Hindu religion. I can't remember her name (tip of my tongue) and I think she's freaking amazing and frightening. She's like the all mother and represents sex and birth and all that scary feminine stuff.

@jaken7: @vivide:

One mistake, Shiva is a guy...and a benevolent divinity.

Kali is frightening because she is the cosmic principle of necessarily destruction, but she's "goodish", like kinda the punisher of the hindian gods because she's seems to aimed mainly bad people. :-/

She's the godess that the original sect of the "thugs" were devoted to. (You know... the indiana jones crazies.)

Depends, Godheads are usually strong

I'd even say that Brahma is superior to Yahweh

Orphic Zeus is also strong

@racob7: @jaken7:

There is no fixed "number of deities" in Hinduism any more than a consistent definition of "deity". There is, however, a popular perception stating that there are 330 million (or "33 crore") deities in Hinduism.

The Chinese term for the Christian God is Tianzhu and Yesu jidu is the term for Jesus Christ.

@mandarinestro: olorun literally means owner of heaven in yoruba, oluwa is god in yoruba, eledumare is also god in yoruba eledumare is his name those other two are titles, chukwu is god in igbo, he created lesser gods like anyawu, amadioha, ala and others. Am a yoruba boy and i know the history/myths of my people and neighbors. Eledumare created earth, he poured sand on the waters and sent "adiye elese meerin" literally meaning a cock with four legs, to spread/scatter the sands over the waters and thus the continents were created, eledumare also created people like oranmiyan, @iamoptimusprime: @akindoodle: do you have anything to had to these feats or deities?

That's a misrepresentation though. She was the Goddess of War and necessary destruction. It was compared with mother's anger when someone harms her children - when something evil torments people and they cry out, she goes around wrecking stuff.. The picture in question is after destroying an asura, she started doing a war dance, which was about to destroy creation - so Shiva lied down below her dancing feet till she calmed down.

Of course, with a purpose like that, it's almost sure to have crazy followers (kind of like how Swastik, a very sacred symbol, was twisted by the nazis and it's still infamous in the western countries) But people who worship her aren't just soldiers. Some of the politicians visit the temple before elections, or some students before an exam. Basically, it's about being at your best for something important.

This is brilliant. Your explanation for the above image seriously just made my day, as did you sharing your knowledge with me. Thank you so, so much!

I'd say Hecate she was honoured by Zeus himself above all other of the older titans, that in itself is testament to the power you have

"Hecate whom Zeus the son of Cronos honored above all. He gave her splendid gifts, to have a share of the earth and the unfruitful sea. She received honor also in starry heaven, and is honored exceedingly by the deathless gods. For to this day, whenever any one of men on earth offers rich sacrifices and prays for favor according to custom, he calls upon Hecate. Great honor comes full easily to him whose prayers the goddess receives favorably, and she bestows wealth upon him; for the power surely is with her. For as many as were born of Earth and Ocean amongst all these she has her due portion. The son of Cronos did her no wrong nor took anything away of all that was her portion among the former Titan gods: but she holds, as the division was at the first from the beginning, privilege both in earth, and in heaven, and in sea" - From the Theogony by Hesiod
