    That is a great example to explain to Atheists why god can't be understood/experienced if others explain it to you

    Depends on the religion. Christians would say such a thing but yet try to prove that God exists. I don't know of any Sunni muslims who have experienced Allah.

    That depends who you ask. According to P.R. Sarkar Lord Shiva was a tantric Guru who lived in India over 7000 years ago and who reformed and modernized tantra for that primitive age. He also gave the marriage system where men promise to stay loyal to their family (wife and offspring) and he taught a system of medicine and elevated the arts of dance and music. He also put an end to tribal warfare (tribes attacking each other from their hill tops and kidnapping the women).

    To his followers Shiva was God (Bhagavan) because (like Krishna) he commanded all the bhags (occult powers) and was a fully realised Guru by birth (he had no spiritual teacher).
    7000 years is a very long time so of course Shiva and his relatives were heavily mythologized and his teachings were largely forgotten.
    The vedic Hindus took some time but they also eventually had to accept the divinity of Shiva and accepted Him as God.
