Who's your favourite god or goddess?

Postby Galasinao » Tue Nov 13, 2012 3:13 pm

The Christian-Judeo God isn't the only god around (I believe in God though and God is my favourite). There's other gods from different religions and mythologies like Zeus, Athena, Ares, Poseidon, Hades, Odin, Thor, Anubis, Osiris, Vishnu, and Shiva. You can also pick a favourite titan if you don't have a favourite god.

As a Pagan, I find it kind of biased to pick a favorite among the gods. However, my patron god would be Cupid, and my patron goddess is The Morrighan.

I prefer the Norse or Greek gods to any of the mainstream religions:

Norse: Jesus promised to rid the world of sin, yet there's still sin. Odin promised to rid the world of the Frost Giants, I dont see any Frost Giants around :p It's a stupid joke, but I like it.

Olympians: They were like a big unhappy family, they're always bickering and squabbling which makes for good legends. Zeus (The king of the Gods) turned himself into a swan to seduce the Spartan King's daughter, their stories are always bizarre and usually hilarious. The Olympians are probably my favourite of the two.

I've always loved swimming so I've always been interested in Poseidon, plus the lore with him, Zeus and Hades being brothers is fascinating and very cool.

I've also had a bit of a thing for Aphrodite ever since the Disney depiction of her in Hercules (even more so for her being voiced by Lisa Kudrow in the series!):

Image


Goddesses of fertility and love and stuff are generally crazy hot anyway, so big love to all those delicious diva deities.

Then, pretty much every god of war is a total badass.

Though, over all the gods, I prefer the Titan, Prometheus because he defied the gods to empower humanity. An ancient and ever-poignant metaphor for man's overcoming the need for superstition and the supernatural and surpassing the gods by utilising reason, inquiry and ingenuity.

Well game wise my favourite is Bastet, as she is the main goddess we follow. I also picked her as I just plain like cats.

From Mythology I would pick Tiamat from Babylonian Religion.

In Real life the Christian God.

And Abedju sounds better than Abydos. Also, Ausar, Wasar v Osiris, Isis.

That's the picture of Thor from Age of Mythology. Note the hammer and the distinct lack of a lack of an eye.
