The world has many gods


Folks,
I normally get amazed at the passion with which Christians and Muslims praise and worship their gods. The fact is that humanity has always created gods and given them qualities and roles, and the current gods of the bible and quran simply add to this list of gods. The Egyptians for instance, have had all manner of gods. The Hindus and Greeks have also had various gods. Africans have also had all sorts of gods, depicted in various cultures as mountains, rivers,etc. Let us look at some of these gods a bit more carefully:

Iris: In Greek mythology, Iris is the personified goddess of the rainbow. She is regarded as the messenger of the gods to humankind, and particularly of the goddess Hera whose orders she brought to humans. She is able to change shapes and when delivering messages to mortals Iris assumes the appearance of a mortal known to those who receive the message.

Atlas: He was one of the second-generation Titans. He personified the quality of endurance.

The Fates (or Moirae) are the three sisters, robed in white, who decide on human fate. Lachesis sings of the things that were, Clotho those that are, and Atropos (or Atropus) the things that are to be. Of the three, Atropos is the smallest in stature, but the most terrible and feared.

Lord Vishnu: Vishnu is one of the principal Hindu deities, worshipped as the protector and preserver of the world and restorer of dharma (moral order). He is known chiefly through his avatars (incarnations), particularly Rama,Krishna and Buddha.

Baal: Son of El (god of thunder and lightning), Baal was the sun god of the Canaanites and Phoenicians, whose worship spread to the ancient Jews. In the Bible, Baal is also known as Beelzebub.

Jesus: Jesus is the central figure of Christianity. For some believers, Jesus is the son of God and the Virgin Mary, who lived as a Galilean Jew, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and rose from the dead. Even for many non-believers, Jesus is a source of wisdom. In addition to Christians, some non-Christians believe he worked healing and other miracles.

Hermes: (Mercury to the Romans), the fleet-footed messenger with wings on his heels and cap symbolizes fast floral delivery. However, Hermes was originally neither winged nor a messenger — that role was reserved for the rainbow goddess Iris.

Jupiter: is the king of the Roman gods, equivalent of the Greek Zeus. The Romans called the largest planet in the solar system after Jupiter. Jupiter is also called Jove.

I could add many many other gods that humans have worshiped over the centuries. The question is, what makes Christians and Muslims imagine that their gods are unique and different? All these are mythical concepts.

    The market place has many imitations of products. The higher the number of imitations the greater the value of the original which is being imitated.
    And so it is with God. That is why there are so many imitations. But if you test them, the genuine one will eventually stand alone. Every person should do so.
