Shiva is strongest god if you exclude omnipotent of monotheistic gods and omnipotence is cheap word play anyway. My vote for him.
I like Odin. He's just really fuckin wise, and wanders around as an old dude.
>In Aztec mythology, the Centzon Totochtin (Nahuatl pronunciation: [sent͡son toːˈtoːt͡ʃtin] "four-hundred rabbits"; also Centzontotochtin) are a group of divine rabbits who meet for frequent drunken parties. They include Tepoztecatl, Texcatzonatl, Colhuatzincatl, Macuiltochtli ("five-rabbit"), and Ometotchtli ("two-rabbit"). Their parents were Patecatl and Mayahuel, and they may have been brothers of Ixtlilton.
>Their destruction is part of the myth of Huitzilopochtli's birth. One day Huitzilopochtli's mother Coatlicue is sweeping the temple where she serves. When Coyolxauhqui and the Centzon Totochtin hear about this, they are livid, and attack and prepare to decapitate her. Just prior to or at the moment Coatlicue is decapitated, Huitzilopochtli leaps fully armed out of her womb, cuts off Coyolxauhqui's head, and throws her off the temple. The Centzon Totochtin try to escape, but Huitzilopochtli either rips out their hearts, decapitates them, throws them off the temple, or stabs them. Copil's heart is thrown onto the island where Tenochtitlan was to be founded.

i know neopagan gaylords get a lot of shit here, and for good reason, but Norse religion is cool once you wade through the bullshit that people have made of it nowadays.
How is he boring? Jesus got his moments and his basic idea that he is god and son of god isn't that boring. His story pretty good narrative wise and it give birth to two thousands years worth of memes.

You should see Japanese statues of gods and bhodisattavas. Scary shit
Despite the fact that he judges the souls fairly and his realm isn't just full of suffering it has heaven as well he is constantly fucking portrayed as some evil boogeyman. Hades did nothing wrong stop demonizing him you faggots.
yeah, greek myths are really popular in my country ad are taught to kids, and i remember reading the thing.
Hades just basically took his part of the world when his bros split everything up, and afterwards got lonely and got himself a wife.
>Not recognizing that your Norse, Hindu, Greek, Celtic, etc. deities are all just poor misrepresentations of the noble, Proto-Indo-European gods
May Perkwunos strike you all down with his mighty lightning ax.
A lot of the things regarding his birth and youth were taken from Jewish folklore in order to make sure that he fulfilled their prophecies for the Messiah.
And due to their location, and the fact the definitive Torah hadn't been compiled yet, Jewish folklore had absorbed and mixed with folklore from other religions.
Not saying the wandering prophet didn't exist, but obviously some other myths would permeate into his background. Especially for things he would have probably never talked with his disciples about.
Quetzalcoatl would beat the shit out of any of your pathetic gods.
More like deva. Read the scriptures.
You have been visited by the mayan rope woman of suicide.
An honorable death and a peaceful afterlife will come to you, but only if you post "thank you rope woman" in this thread.
redpill me as to WHY in iranic religions ahuras are good and devis are evil, but in indic religions asuras are evil and devas are good
I never fucking understood this
heard it served as a case of national honour quarrels between persians and hindus today
I mean, it almost reminds me of the divagations between Christians and Gnostics over the nature of the world creator
Its a meme religion but I like the explanation Jung used of a God who encapsulates both good and evil.
I had such a crush on her growing up [spoiler]and I still do[/spoiler].
That said multiple sources have her acting legit cunt for no reason like when she turned Medusa into a monster as if she could somehow help being raped by Poseidon in Athena's temple.
I only know the one story where some gods had a huge fight that as collateral killed all humans, so Quetzalcoatl went to the under world confronted the lord there and got some human bones, cut his dick and spilled his dick blood on the bones to bring humans back to life.
Nice guy cutting his dick to bring humans back.
Considering their ability to maintain worship of their gods inspire of Christian and Islamic persecution and enslavement I gotta say their gods and stories are pretty based.
They are even spreading to Japan now and have a foot hold in Europe.
>awwww, whos a big bad angry war god, yes you are yesh yu are...
Let's be fair now, that is all Jewish stuff.
Christians and Muslim never really added any mythos or creatures, they simply talked about Jesus+Mohammed and the new rules the God/Allah came up with after he got bored with no interesting gods to squabble with as is the custom in polytheistic panthenons.
Are you even a muslim?
Or are you one of those guys who believe anything they hear about Islam on the Internet?
Cause I meet with Shias everyday and they have never said that Hazard Ali is a re-incarnation of God.
there are other sects than shia or sunni you know
shia islam too started off with notions of re-incarnation and transmigration of souls (through the imamate) but quickly submerged these and adopted a more strict quranic jurisprudence
look up "ghulat"
also, am a muslim (unfortunately), am Alevi
>Oh and there being a sect for something does not make it true.
The same argument can be made for islam you retard

Daughter of Jove, almighty and divine, come, blessed queen, and to these rites incline:
Only-begotten, Pluto's honor'd wife, O venerable Goddess, source of life:
'Tis thine in earth's profundities to dwell, fast by the wide and dismal gates of hell:
Jove's holy offspring, of a beauteous mien, fatal, with lovely locks, infernal queen:
Source of the Furies, whose blest frame proceeds from Jove's ineffable and secret seeds:
Mother of Bacchus, Sonorous, divine, and many-form'd, the parent of the vine:
The dancing Hours attend thee, essence bright, all-ruling virgin, bearing heav'nly light:
Illustrious, horned, of a bounteous mind, alone desir'd by those of mortal kind.
O, vernal queen, whom grassy plains delight, sweet to the smell, and pleasing to the sight:
Whose holy form in budding fruits we view, Earth's vig'rous offspring of a various hue:
Espous'd in Autumn: life and death alone to wretched mortals from thy power is known:
For thine the task according to thy will, life to produce, and all that lives to kill.
Hear, blessed Goddess, send a rich increase of various fruits from earth, with lovely Peace;
Send Health with gentle hand, and crown my life with blest abundance, free from noisy strife;
Last in extreme old age the prey of Death, dismiss we willing to the realms beneath,
To thy fair palace, and the blissful plains where happy spirits dwell, and Pluto reigns.

BTW am I the first in the thread to mention Finnic mythology?
Abrahamic (well mostly Judaeo-Christian) is actually pretty deep and elaborate if you study it further and are well versed within it.
No mythological monsters have as much named characters as angels. not giants, not dragons, not elves
Most people have no idea about their nature, and can't name more than say - Michael, Gabriel, Raphael and Uriel (only ones necessary to know named in the Bible, and they're not even most important - Metatron and Sandalphon are). But there is over 9000 (literally) of them, many have well defined traits and characters. extra-cannonnical literature is rich, very rich
there is even fucking more known devils and demons, each one responsible for something. Satan, Lucifer, Mastema, Azazel, Belial... no, those are not synonyms
especially christian europe, which syncresied with its pagan faiths and preserved much of it otherwise unknown for us. it also borned many new monsters, otherwise unknown before
succubi and incubi, gargolyes, etc
in similar way to buddhism actually
judaism itself had some too - golem, leviathan, ziz, behemoth
you can corelate heroes and gods of pagan religions with saints and prophets, angels (which is many interpret they were - just deified heroes). quite literally, angels were called Elohim or Bene Elohim, which means Gods, or God-like beings, and sons of them
then there are them of course, fucking gnostics, who often define it diverted by 90°. oh boy how mindfucking all of this stuff is, I'm still not greenpilled enough to grasp it
ok thanks for redpill, thought there were some "fertility" cults before lunar and solar, and later jovian. that's what my school history books said at least
Will Germanic mythology ever recover from popular culture ruining it?

>Mother of Fate
>The Protogenos, primeval goddess of inevitability, compulsion and necessity
>She emerged self-formed at the very beginning of time
>An incorporeal, serpentine being whose outstretched arms encompassed the breadth of the universe
>From the time She first appeared ANANKE was entwined in the serpentine coils of Her mate, the time-god KHRONOS
>Together They surrounded the primal egg of solid matter in their constricting coils and split it into its constituent parts: Earth, Heaven and Sea, and so brought about the creation of the ordered Universe
>ANANKE and KHRONOS remain entwined as the cosmic-circling forces of fate and time--driving the rotation of the heavens and the never-ending passage of time
>She is far beyond the reach of the younger gods whose fates She controls
You mean, like Shiva / Shakti?
Obviously pre-dating idiocy..
thanks to this stupid fucking thing atheists are seen as manchildren as if our reputation wasn't bad enough already thanks to snowflakes who think it's good idea to masturbate with crosses in public
Would you prefer HER?
I even prefer The Reverend Bob Dobbs!
The goddess of Earth meets the god of Sun.
>Aztec priests used this myth to try to justify their ritual of human sacrifice.
I thought it was to honor the battle between the man who founded the Aztec state and his sister? When he won, he decapitated his sister and tossed her off the temple? Something along those lines.
Post more Ocholobostli:
>Fire-serpent sword to bind the cycles of time
>Born prematurely by his will and has no skin
>The Sun incarnates in him to bring us light
>His mother is Coatlicue and his place of birth the highest temple of the Earth.
>Hunts down all his 400 brothers who were commanded by his sister Coyolxauhqui because they wanted to kill him before he came to life
>The warriors who were sacrificed to him are his bodyguards and army in his battle against the night
>His myth represents the Sun's daily victory against the 400 (Meso number for infinite) stars and the Moon
That work too.
Most of the bible is actually pretty fucking radical if you treat it as mythology rather then just a holy text, it's a shame so few things actually go the full mile with using all the crazy shit n there, only thing I can think of is a video game called el shaddai: ascension of the metatron.
Yes, please refer to my post >>672737
El Shaddai was nice, wish there were more games played around those themes (our "mythology" overall).
SMT extensively featured the lore, but also all the other world mythologies - kinda like D&D, except more close to the source in many ways (I loved their presentation of Metatron, I learned of existence of St. Patrick's guardian angel, Victoricus). Yet YHVH was the strongest god.
Conflict of Behemoth, Leviathan and Ziz was even featured as founding legend of 3rd generation Pokémon, R/S/E. As were - way too many - Golems.
Hmm, I've read so much on that but without good sources. It's mostly deep reading into essays I find around internet, wish it had good quotations (I'm desperately trying to localise Pope St. Gregory's sermon naming original 7 Catholic "Archangels" for example), originally I sticked to angelologist hobbyists like BLyy and their posts, but that was when my knowledge of English wasn't so good (I was doing my research first in Polish web naturally).
I can recomend Dictionary of Angels including the Fallen Angels if you're into names as much as I do (won't lie, this is sole purpose I began studying angeolology, demonology to the lesser degree), it's probably most easiest book to find.
I personally reccomend the forum Megadriel, owners does EXTENSIVE research to publish that knowledge
Here's for example one on the Gnostic Angels, Archons and Aeons:
(Original purpose was asking on who the hell are Archaias you see so often linked with Archangels in the new age tier stuff, well looks like they derive from syzygiums)
Main problem is that if you want to be really redpilled on that you should know the original languages and study the material yourself.
Evolution is a lie! We all came from Adam Kadmon.
>God as the three-faced Jesus
>Or Old Sky Grandpa
Better analogy would be body-mind-spirit Orthodox use
This is for example God the Father - Deus Abba Omnipotens Pater, icon sanctioned by revelations of Eugenia Ravasio.
Only known cannonised look of him, in Catholicism.
In Orthodoxy depiction of any other person than Jesus is a big no-no, yet the "Ancient of Days" forme unofficially enterred iconography (nevermind the fact that in Orthodoxy JESUS was responsible for that).
POSSIBLE look of Holy Spirit - If you keep to "her" alleged depictions before dove.
I won't further elaborate on that, I stopped doing my research on Holy Trinity. Got called heretic or gnostic too damn many times.
*Main problem is that if you want to be really redpilled on that you should know the original languages and study the material yourself.
Latin, Greek, Coptic, Aramaic and Hebrew. Most materials, including the "apocrypha" are in them. Would you believe me if I told you I meet one Polish Priest living in Spain who knew them all? He helped me decipher meaning of the name Oriphiel - Light of God (misattributed to Uriel)
I haven't read much books onto topic, I'm not sure if they even exist. Mostly quotes pulled out from them.
So as you can imagine my knowledge is still relatively small.
Pic kinda unrelated - Cherubim based on the "all" accounts of it, including the Akkadian namesake.
Always thought that was more of a punishment to poseidon, like when hes bragging to zeus about the babe he scored while theyre up in Mt. Olympus, and Zeus parts the clouds to take a look at this supposed 10/10 ( Zeus never could land the hot ones ) and they both look at medusa and Poseidon feels a little embarrassed.
they kinda rip off riders of apocalypse
Khorne is good old, pure straightforward warrior god, his only concern is actual fighting, NOT war in general
Nurgle isn't just death, he's biological decay/pestilence, while Slaanesh is moral decay/sinning
Tzeench more about endless scheming and struggle for change (and magic)
>Athena and Ares
unrealistic, why would you have two war gods? so dumb
Every poster ITT has chosen their fate and will be struck down by the only god of heavens there is.

It says Mayan and it was meant for those who wanted a nice pleasant afterlife.

Hades is cool and all but he's a literal cuck
His wife leaves him for half a year and is much happier away from him, I would say Persophone is looking for black dick if not for the fact Hades is thr literal god of darkness

Just like how the Aesir were survivors of the Trojan war and happened to be skilled in magic so the ignorant northmen mistook them for Gods?
Or like how the Tuatha De Danaan were just wizards?

Thats right, he is indeed thought to be one of the resurrecting gods used as a template for Jesus, according to some scholars.
