What are some weird ancient gods?

Report as

The Hebrews' God is pretty damn weird. Also he's based on a more ancient God, El Elyon, a Canaanite God.

God is not weird, his not based on anything he's been around forever, and the Hebrew people/Jews arent the only people that beleive in Him. Christian and Muslims do to. And the Cannanite God and the Hebrew God are the same God

They are the same God? But the Canaanites were polytheists. All their other gods were false, but this one wasn't? You're being silly.

Jehovah was just the sky deity of the Canaanites, married to the earth goddess and son of El their supreme deity. When the Hebrews broke off from the Canaanites around the 14th century BCE they took their patron god with them, but still believed the others existed. It wasn't until the 800s BCE that the Hebrews became monotheists, after contact with the Greeks.

What do you consider weird? Since the are no gods, it is the baseless belief in them I find weird.

I thought that was Yahweh. The she-bears mauling 42 kids, the firstborn sons of Egypt, his own son. Yahweh has it out for kids.

Dionysus worship was pretty unique. Also the way the Egyptian god Horus was created is something else. Happy studying and God bless.
