    To Christians here, what other gods have you learned about that you find interesting? Keep in mind that this thread is NOT some kind of trap. I'm genuinely interested in what other gods pique your interest, for whatever reason. I'm not asking in the sense that you actually believe in this other god, but only in the sense that you found this god to be interesting to learn about, whether it's because the god was benevolent, particularly violent, intelligent, strange, etc.

    I've always found Hercules to be interesting, because he's between being man and god. The TV shows and movies don't do his mythology justice; they mainly focus on the superhero aspects of his character. I found the 12 Labors of Hercules to be pretty fascinating.

    In the Greek mythos, I always thought the humans were more interesting than the 'gods'.

    Odysseus is probably my favorite.

    Interestingly, and I hope you'll forgive me for pointing it out, Odysseus's main 'superpower' according to his Homeric exploits appears to be the ability to lie effectively. Just sayin'...

    I am not a Christian, but I think one worthy use of the term 'God' would be with a Gaian Pantheism.

    Odysseus was a demigod descended from Hermes and the wind god.

    What other god/gods could be more interesting than the God of the universe, the Holy one of Israel?

    None.

    But the question is not "What other gods are more interesting than your god?". The question is: "What other gods have you learned about that you find interesting?"

    Human history is replete with gods. We humans have probably forgotten all about far more gods that we dreamed up down through the millennia than the number we have managed to record in our history books.

    Yes there are other "gods" that have come down throughout history, they are more of an object of worship than anything else... idols and dead at that. If the definition in the OP for God is the creator, master, etc... there is only one and no others.

    There is nothing but lies to learn from "other gods". There is only one true God.
    Edit: BUT, there are other false gods, Lucifer comes to mind, Baal, Bel etc
