Big G and little g
God is a word that gets thrown around loosely and thus has all sorts of meanings. Some describe God as a transcendent phenomenon lying beyond the realm of description, yet underlying all of creation. Others claim that their group’s local deity is the creator of the universe and likes only his loyal followers. Cultures from all over the world developed mythologies about gods who interacted with each other and who had different roles and personality archetypes. Ancient civilizations accepted that many gods influenced various aspects of our daily lives, but humanity was tricked by a Hebraic idea that became the basis for religions. The Hebrew god said, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me”, and ever since people have been confusing little g for Big G.
