We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

OK. I know there aren't or isn't any god(s) out there but if there was, and going back through history, if you could choose to pick a group of them or just one to be real, which would you choose? You can even make up your of own. Give it some thought and come back later if you don't have an answer to this now. I am just trying to spark your imagination with this one. For me it would probably be the Norse gods. Their stories are just cool and one even became a comic book hero. Take that Christianity. I don't see Jesus in any Marvel Comics.

Just looking at Thor you know you wouldn't want to anger him. Plus, to me, he looks cool.

I do love Ganesha as well and have a little wooden Ganesha statue I bought in an Indian arts and craft story in NYC. I like his trident and what it symbolizes.

I pick Athena! We could definitively use a god(ess) who was all about wisdom and reason and knowledge!

Any Sun deity, pick your edition.
That's what came the closest to what really has dominion upon us. 

I pick

Huitzilopochtli

Because it's fun trying to pronounce his name! 

You got me with that one. Too many letters crammed into one name that look like someone was drunk when they wrote it out.

Peyote, perhaps?

From Publishers Weekly

Titans clash, but with more fuss than fury in this fantasy demi-epic from the author of Neverwhere. The intriguing premise of Gaiman's tale is that the gods of European yore, who came to North America with their immigrant believers, are squaring off for a rumble with new indigenous deities: "gods of credit card and freeway, of Internet and telephone, of radio and hospital and television, gods of plastic and of beeper and of neon." They all walk around in mufti, disguised as ordinary people, which causes no end of trouble for 32-year-old protagonist Shadow Moon, who can't turn around without bumping into a minor divinity. Released from prison the day after his beloved wife dies in a car accident, Shadow takes a job as emissary for Mr. Wednesday, avatar of the Norse god Grimnir, unaware that his boss's recruiting trip across the American heartland will subject him to repeat visits from the reanimated corpse of his dead wife and brutal roughing up by the goons of Wednesday's adversary, Mr. World. At last Shadow must reevaluate his own deeply held beliefs in order to determine his crucial role in the final showdown. Gaiman tries to keep the magical and the mundane evenly balanced, but he is clearly more interested in the activities of his human protagonists: Shadow's poignant personal moments and the tale's affectionate slices of smalltown life are much better developed than the aimless plot, which bounces Shadow from one episodic encounter to another in a design only the gods seem to know. Mere mortal readers will enjoy the tale's wit, but puzzle over its strained mythopoeia. (One-day laydown, June 19)Forecast: Even when he isn't in top form, Gaiman, creator of the acclaimed Sandman comics series, trumps many storytellers. Momentously titled, and allotted a dramatic one-day laydown with a 12-city author tour, his latest will appeal to fans and attract mainstream review coverage for better or for worse because of the rich possibilities of its premise.

Frigg and Aphrodite as they were the goddesses of Love,

Hermes the messenger,

 Ahura Mazdā because His name means Light and Wisdom.
