    but from chaos emerged Anatos, the Goddess who is substance, and Vatrious, the God who is the Void. Anatos gives birth to all that exists from the smallest mote to the mightiest star and Vatrious, whose hunger is never satiated, is destined to consume all of which Anatos forms.

    We reside within Anatos. We are a component of Anatos.

    We all return to Vatrious. We are a function of Vatrious.

    Ok, some omnipotent being stumbled about in the dark for a few days, before finding the light switch. He then moulded some cows and people or something. Then he gave them an apple they couldn't eat, and got angry when they did eat it (entrapment anyone?) and threw a temper tantrum like a little child. What a fucking idiot.

    Eh, not suprising He's a homeless dude that lives on 16th St in Chicago. Kinda wacko, but sometimes something profound and clear slips through the insanity.

    Smart? I am knowledge incarnate! I know all that has or will exist! I am the mind at the center of the universe! My thoughts are the substance of being!

    Earth,Water, Air, & Fire. Air was lonely and so she dated Fire. Fire was passionate in Air's presence, but he was unable to dance for very long before the passion died down, if you know what I mean. So they broke up.
    Next Air dated Water, and covered the world in their passion. Fire was angered and hurt by Water and Air's relationship though, and the two ladies had to end their relationship before Fire was killed by it.
    Air wandered for a while, being alone. She came upon the mighty pillar, Earth, who was steady and understanding. They danced and danced and Earth was spread across the world. When the dancing was finished Air was crying for she thought she had killed Earth. Earth spoke to her though, and told her that she can find him all around the world.

    Wind travels the world.
    Water moves and flows, always flirting with Wind.
    Fire grows at Wind's embrace, and feuds with Water.
    Earth remains Wind's rock in a world once chaotic.

    You have... no idea what the fall of Adam was actually for. God meant for it to happen. And he wasn't angry when it did.

    A race of plant-like aliens searched for the perfect beverage. One was born among them who could see the path to the future. Thus humans were created to eventually create a drink called beer. The plant-like aliens were eventually found and attacked. They learned to hide by standing perfectly still. Eventually they de-evolved into immobile beings. Then... beer was finally discovered, but the ingredient, was the plant aliens... the Barleys.

    Given that nothing here can be empirically tested, anyone can pick whatever interpretation they choose. One cannot be shown to be more or less correct than another.

    There are six species of dragon, and each has a male and female deity who made the dragons in their own images. The twelve dragons guide their children through the world they have made and when the dragons fight with each other, it means the gods are quarreling.

    I still haven't the slightest clue what this thread is for, but it sure is entertaining.

    The geographically-secluded Olympians discovered farming on a huge atlantic island 20,000 years before the rest of homo sapien scattered across the world, and as such, are able to create civilization. Keeping their population low relative to food and resources, they managed to thrive in a constructed utopia. One prodigious leader, jumpstarting the scientific revolution, established technocracy for centuries. The Olympians conquered the world, ruling under the technological guise of godhood. Cargo cult mythology in every culture in the world originates from exposure to this advanced civilization. The Olympians take to the stars, looking for a suitable exoplanet to plant the seeds of heaven. Only one exoplanet is found similar enough to earth for terraforming. Political instability caused by conflicted utopian ideals between several powerful leaders lead to a global war that tears apart infrastructure and reverts their great empire back to the stone age.

    The only remnants of the gods is a glimpse into to the potential future of mankind.
