My argument to prove God exists (IIc.)

3. Polytheists/Pagans in general - I don't know if I can accurately say that polytheists/pagans believe in one God but address it through different aspects.

Much like the God aspects found in the sephiroth on the Tree of Life or even the Father, Son, Holy Spirit combo in the Trinity, however this cannot be said to be polytheism because both Judaism/Kabbala and Christianity in that God despite the different aspects has a unity of one. It is more to do with differing personality aspects which people can relate to and approach rather than God creating these aspects so it can relate to people. So there are so called polytheists who are actually monotheists, they just haven't examined their actual beliefs and 'gods'

If a polytheist does actually worship different gods, then do they hold them all as equal? If not, then can they explain why this isn't the case? After all if they are viewed as a god wouldn't this make them all equals? But as we examine any particular branch of mythology we will see these 'gods' do things like marrying, having children, engaging in personal beefs and indeed all manner of emotional based behaviour commonly associated with humans.

We can look at the likes of the ancient Egyptian gods which had animal heads as well as other non-human forms (you know Kek). Does the polytheist actually believe these gods were actually partly or wholly the creatures they have been depicted as?

Some probably would but mostly polytheists would accept the paintings and other artworks depicting these gods as symbolic. Ancient Egyptian art was symbolic, in addition the pharaoh was held to be a descendant of the gods but should he not have had an animal head or something? And why do bloodlines come into it.

I believe that the different gods were different human families and that the head of a family was portrayed in artwork with an animal head so that when that person died they could be replaced with little effort. Indeed as we have seen in all manner of polytheistic and occult rituals the leader of a coven or temple had their face covered. Did wearing a mask give them super dooper powers? No. In searching for where they got their occult knowledge inevitably leads back to the nephilim/djinn/demons/rogue angels/etc.

Again staying in ancient Egypt we see that its occult influence lingers today, Moses was an Egyptian prince and would have been taught the occult practices that were the domain of the 'god' families and bloodlines. We also have to list Rosicrucianism, Enochian magic, Thelema and I very strongly suspect Freemasonry. I was a Rosicrucian (AMORC) and the more you get into it you see the ancient Egyptian factor and it cannot be denied. Enochian magic does reference ancient Egyptian 'gods' as a factor in various practices, Thelema is just ancient Egyptian magical practices mixed in with yoga and was cooked up by Aleister Crowley. Freemasonry does have a 'god' but it is a syncretisation of Jah, Bael and Osirus, its name is Jahbulon. Syncretisation of gods is an ancient Egyptian practice, although some will say that the followers of these gods would agree to syncretise them if the numbers dedicated to these gods fell away due to other gods gaining more popularity. But I would tend to say that it was the intermarriage of certain bloodlines which caused the syncretisation as no one wanted to relinquish their bloodline name. Much like the way when upper class members intermarry, so if let's say a member of an elite family with the surname of Jones marries a member of an elite family called Smith then the surname that the couple will use is Jones-Smith.

So far I have been referring to ancient Egypt, but what of ancient Rome, Greece and other groups such as the Etruscans, Vikings and Celts. What differentiates them from the Egyptians is that they largely portrayed their gods as human beings, sure they were portrayed as above average humans but humans never the less. But these mythologies were also known to clone each others gods, all they did was rename them in their language and nothing else. The occult aspect was rather poor and was easily swept away by Christianity.

I will mention Hinduism which to me comes across as a free choice polytheism, you can add or subtract gods. Even Jesus Christ is accepted as a god by some Hindus but not especially a prominent or highly ranked one. I believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has been factored into not Hinduism per se but into the cultural beliefs/practices of the Indian sub-continent. This is because of the 'lost' years of Jesus Christ where it is believed that he travelled to India and took in the culture before returning to ancient Israel/Judea. Some say that he was close to Krishna but I never was concerned about this and I don't have an opinion either way.

With voodoo although we have the loas/lwas who interact with humans there is an actual chief God called Bon Dieu or some spell it Bondye. Bon Dieu has nothing to do with humans but will do on occasion, so it has delegated things concerning humans to the loas. I suppose it could be said that the same situation exists with the Holy Trinity, Jehovah, Yahweh, Allah delegating certain responsibilities to the various rankings of angels. The same should also be said for the God of Deism as well.

The real nutjobs concerning polytheism are the likes of Wiccans, chaos magicians and eris followers.
All wicca is just bits and pieces of magical beliefs and superstitions picked up by Gerald Gardiner, it was Aleister Crowley who formulated these bits and pieces into a basic occult system......of sorts. Crowley only met Gardiner once, so apart from setting up a bare bones system for occult practice it was Gardiner and his nutjob followers who tacked on all sorts of crap and make believe to produce the instant insanity that is called wicca today. Oh... it was Gardiner who introduced the 'skyclad' practice, yes he was just a dirty old man.

Chaos magic? Along the same lines of wicca, you can add or subtract gods from anywhere on earth or in history and mix them together and just add ritual. You can throw eris worship into the mix, although eris and discordianism is just a joke even to its 'followers' the same cannot be said for chaos magic 'practitioners'.

Atheist? Solipsist? Hardcore nutjob? Doesn't matter chaos magic can cater for anyone because (in the words of Hasan of Alamut) nothing is true; all is permitted.
