    I dont know about you, but for some reason if i were to go around worshiping some deity i should have done better and looked outside the bible. I mean, there's some pretty cool goddesses out there in other religions. Here's my top 3:

    (of corse, i dont worship and deity, but just for fun)

    Kali Ma: Hindu Goddess of Time, Death and Destruction. She's slayed a myriad of demons and drank the blood of a demon warrior by lopping off his head head and drinking his blood. She's so cool that when she and her husband Lord Shiva make love they destroy and create worlds! What a gal!

    Freyja: Norse Goddess of love, sex, beauty, war and death. Freyja rules over her heavenly afterlife field Fólkvangr and there receives half of those that die in battle, whereas the other half go to the god Odin's hall, Valhalla... also has an affinity for cats.

    Tiamat: Ancient Babylonian Goddess of saltwater (?) but also mother to the Gods and gave birth to the world. She was killed by the other gods and Marduk, newly crowned king of the Babylonian pantheon, split her corpse in two to create the dome of the sky and the waters of the earth.

    I think it's interesting that Mitochondrial Eve is said to predate Y-Chromosomal Adam, and goddesses predate gods. Patriarchy and misogyny seems to come in later.

    Very very old cultures, such as the Navajo, are much more matriarchal.

    This seems like a sexist thread to me how about you girls coming up with a God of your choice.
