The Gods are our creation. As our culture evolves, they evolve. Or not, if they're the Gods of a backwards people.
If our believe creates actual, real Gods, and not just some ideas that exist only because we do, than I can imagine that the day that Earth gets wiped out by a meteor or something would be an interesting day for the Gods. Only dead humans remain, each in the domain of the God that they thought they should go to. And if those Gods go to war with each other, at the beck of the dead humans who believe that in death that all humans should be united under the umbridge of a single God, then we'd have something worth writing about. In a Ragnarak unimagined, black Jesus, the more powerful of the two for having more believers, slaughters the racist Jehovah that the Klan worshiped. Does the Anglican Jehovah and the Roman Catholic Jehovah join forces with the Orthodox Jehovah, to form a trinity of Jehovahs so they can take the fight to the Protestants, and kick some apostate ass, or do they instead turn on each other to prove which one is right? Do the Coptic and Ethiopian Jehovahs try to hide from the other Jehovahs who are more powerful, or do they stay in plain sight? Perhaps those two might join forces, or maybe they might fight, hoping to pick off smaller cults, so they can take the souls of the defeated to join their anemic armies. I somehow imagine the different Mohammeds turning on each other and "cleaning house" before a unified Mohammed army, under the Mo that defeated them all would turn to fight the Jehovah who turned out to be the best tactician of them all. It makes me think that the best generals in history, those genius tacticians such as Alexander the Great, Rommel the Desert Fox, Napoleon, and Genghis Khan would all be out there, leading the armies of their gods. India has always been a cosmopolitan place, in regard to having many, many Gods, and I don't think they'd squabble with each other. I think they'd be a powerful and unified front in the war of the heavens. I wonder how the different Buddhas would react to each other. Would they get in navel gazing contests to prove which was the most enlightened, or would they follow the old Buddhist creed of, "If you meet the Buddha on the road, kill him." I think that Confucius would try to stay out of the war, but get drawn in despite his best efforts. And I think he would play the game like a chess master, whispering advice into the ears of many different Gods, playing them against each other, and finally brokering the peace accord that would come when the Gods tired of slaughtering each other.
Um... what was this thread about again?
