    Maybe the question is what does God make of you.

    GOD is a severely corrupted word, GOD is a code word for many different things and has a lot of diff meanings. GOD in the macroism is energy / quintessence, while God in the microcism is the perfected human in my faith. There is no all knowing creator god of everything in my religion. The Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Dharmic and Pagan Gods/Goddesses are all of the same beings and are highly advanced ETs in my faith (extreme syncretism). The abrahamic gods and figures don't exist in my faith. That's what they mean to me. :)

    Only the Almighty Holy God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob exists. All others are deceptions invented by Satan to steer Man from the truth of God's word.

    Advocate of letting go of theism. Buddhist with an emphasis on personal understanding.
    They feel very archetypical to me. I find the Isis tales particularly inspiring.

    Might as well have been created in order to make my belief in them impossible.

    Useful accessories for practice. Among the most inspiring of all, in no small part due to the quality of the art associated with them.

    Again, very archetypical. I understand that some of them are explicitly highly personal, which I find healthy.

    No particular opinion.

    I agree, I believe the Mythology of them all are only spiritual allegories and spiritual concepts, never literal. ❤️

    Egyptian- Disturbing, but pretty cool-looking.
    Greek- Awesome. They're basically pouty, selfish jerks who are constantly at war with each other and always ruining stuff for mortals in the process, which I find far more believable than most monotheistic God concepts.
    Roman- Basically the edgy, Christopher Nolan reboot of the Greek Gods.
    Jewish- Generally not a fan.
    Christian- Generally not a fan.
    Islamic- Generally not a fan.
    Dharmic- Not really very educated on.
    Pagan- Not really very educated on.
    Other- Best God concept = the old ones.
