    Default Deifacted nomenclature (what's your favorite god/goddess name?)

    I think this is a gen chat topic. Let's not get hung up on what deifacted means... in starting.

    Anyway, most gods, titans, saints, angels, demons and other creatures of legend boil down to a common origin, possibly pre-Babylonian (when after the Babel Tower fell, cultures scattered and languages went haywire).

    I've been thinking about it and while I may have certain preferences for how these mythological icons are depicted, I don't dwell too heavily on it. But I definitely have favorite names.

    Some of my favorites include Kronos and Tartarus (G), Mercury and Silvanus (R), Osiris and Anubis (E), Tiamat (B), Hel (N), Ishtar (S), Quetzalcoatl (M). For Greek, I do also like Artemis, Asclepius, and Persephone. In Eastern practice, I like Izanagi, Amaterasu, Fujin, and Raijin for Japanese and for Chinese, well, mostly just Sun Wukong.

    I'm still building a longer list, but these are the tops. Anyone else got faves? Remember you don't need to specify what the god/goddess is about. Just the name, why it sounds cool to you, and possibly its origin though I can likely look that up myself.

    I understand
    Jack: How do you know?

    Will: It's more of a feeling really.

    Jack: Well, that's not scientific. Feeling isn't knowing. Feeling is believing. If you believe it, you can't know because there's no knowing what you believe. Then again, no one should believe what they know either. Once you know anything that anything becomes unbelievable if only by virtue of the fact you now... know it. You know?

    Will: No.

    If Demolition Man were remade today

    Huxley: What's wrong? You broke contact.
    Spartan: Contact? I didn't even touch you.
    Huxley: Don't you want to make love?
    Spartan: Is that what you call this? Why don't we just do it the old-fashioned way?
    Huxley: NO!
    Spartan: Whoa! Okay, calm down.
    Huxley: Don't tell me to calm down!
    Spartan: What's gotten into you? 'Cause it sure as hell wasn't me.
    Huxley: Physical relations in the way of intercourse are no longer acceptable John Spartan.
    Spartan: What? Why the hell not?
    Huxley: It's the law, John. And for your information, the very idea that you suggested it makes me feel personally violated.
    Spartan: Wait a minute... violated? Huxley what the hell are you accusing me of here?
    Huxley: You need to leave, John.
    Spartan: But Huxley.
    Huxley: Get out!
    Moments later Spartan is arrested for "violating" Huxley.

    By the way, that's called satire. Get over it.
