No Hanuman? :(

...not including the middle-east. Which is a bit of an oversight, no?

We don't pretend to be experts on all religions, but we can certainly point you to quite a few places in the Holy Bible where other Gods are mentioned by name. Why else would the Lord say "Thou shalt have no other Gods but me?"

The bottom line: Godchecker is a mythology site. Not a religious site.


I'm confused... What's the difference again?

Cultural chauvinism?

Jesus saves.
Moses invests.

Not a lot of in-depth research in the Egyptian section. There are some common misconceptions repeated and some of the "also known as"'s are questionable. But really no worse that I've come to expect from teh intarweb.

Geez, EB et al... check their FAQ:

5) Where are the missing Gods?
We have thousands of Gods in our Holy Database, but they're not all online. We're working through them as quickly as we can, but does anybody listen? We cannot instantly produce pantheons to order and illustrations by next Tuesday. We are as frustrated as you!

Well, where are the 33,098,162 Gods from the Hindu pantheon? They better start cataloging them soon, if they want any credibility.

It had Verdandi, so it's all good.

EB, the middle east is pretty much covered by deity=GOD, wouldn't you think?

Not necessarily, since there are many defunct gods from that area, which are what mythology is, right? I think it's revealing that they are staying away from those gods, since the connection between them and GOD proves the line between mythology and religion is a lot more blurry (or non-existent) than they claim.
