Most gods of the ancient world are as - or even more at times - human as we are. The gods of the Old Testament are often misunderstood as Christian and Jewish translators refuse to acknowledge that before 600 BC the Jews worshiped more than one god, keeping YHWH as their highest God. Only YHWH and his wife were allowed to be represented in the temple, and she, well her tree, was ripped out after Babylon rule made them paranoid. Even the New Testaments talks of more than one god. The first chapter of John admits this, when translated correctly:
1. In the beginning was the counsel, and it was a counsel of/with the gods, and God [YHWH] was in the counsel.
2. The same [YHWH] was in the begining with the gods.
3. All things were made by him [YHWH] ... etc...
But, try telling your Evangelical friends this and they'll likely go Biblical on you, as the saying goes.
