Actually that's not exactly true. Pagan patheons can have more than one god or goddess of war, as with most other fuctions. Using the Greeks as an example as you did, Athena is also a goddess of war and many other gods - such as Zeus - are warriors as well. Hades is a different thing, since he got the Underworld after a division of the world between three gods: Zeus got the heavens, Posidon the sea and Hade the world bellow. And there may a difference between beyond a god of the realm of the dead and being one of death. Demeter, for instance, could have a role of death goddess, naturally coming from her agricultural function.Originally posted by Athelas
Most Pagan pantheons will have only one god or goddess of war and one of death as distinct, individual deities. In the Greek, Ares is the god of War, and Hades is the God of the Underworld, for example.
Reem is right: Hinduism can fall into the paganism category. The same thing for Satanism and everysingle non-abrahamic religion. It so happens that pagan and paganism, in terms of its religious conotation, is a negative definition, i.e., it says what X isn't, not what it is. Here's a bit of history.Originally posted by spirit
