It's also possible you might be dealing with a god that hasn't been recognised before (Ie, a NEW one - I can just hear the gasps of disbelief now). But think about it - even the 'old' gods had to have been created or made their presence known at some point. It's just possible you might be dealing with someone who wasn't around waaaay back when, and has come about (been born? Depends on your view of pantheons really) because of a modern need. Hey, the ancients would find new gods to suit new or evolving discoveries, it's certainly not beyond the realms of possibility that there may be a 'new' set out there, just starting to make themselves known.
<tongue in cheek> In fact, I'm suprised that no-one has 'discovered' the patron Diety of computers... I'd like to make a sacrifice to stop my computer crashing... *evil grin* </tongue in cheek>  Grin

I am in 100% agreement with you here! In fact I have been thinking on much the same lines these days, especially regarding a deity of technology!  Gremlins surfaced during WWII, wheather or not one belives in them is not really the point, but there was a need for them hence they surfaced.

To my way of thinking a God is the essence of a force, thing, or idea. So technology fits the bill. I have tried fitting past Gods into this "vacancy" or "God wanted" position but they just don't seem ideal, and really a God must be the essence or spirit of the thing. That said, there would already exist a God of technology we just don't know what to call him/her and are not sure of the worship. I should think with a little effort we could find this elusive one to help battle the gremlins.

Personally, speaking I have been searching for a deity to help with household appliances as well, they give me a dickens of a problem. The old home and hearth Goddess seem unable to connect to these areas of the modern home.

Yes, I am being serious here, although I suppose some may see this as being a bit off the wall, but hey, flaky is my middle name!

Hum....maybe I should start a new thread to see if anyone else might be serious about connecting with a high tech god? I really think the computer types might get a better connection to him (pun intended)
