This is a spin-off of the Forgotten Gods thread  http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=3171.0

Is it possible that there are new Gods that have formed with the changing world that we are not aware of or have over-looked?

Somehow I feel as though I have failed as a Pagan for always looking for a deity of the past when one appears to me. Surley there must be new God/Goddesses being born/created? Why have I always tried to assign a modern concept or thing  (such as technology) to a deity of the past?

In my opinion a deity is the essence of a thing, force, or idea. Then it would stand to reason that there are new Gods. Why have I hesitated to seek them out for help? Possibly because I am seen as being flaky enough without going on an "in search of new Gods" type adventure? Or maybe because others might deem this as the stuff of "fluff-bunnies?" (a term I despise by the way)

Has anyone encountered what they suspect may be a "newer" technology age God?


 

As far as worrying about whether people think you are fluffy or not...screw 'em. There is quite enough unfriendly judgmental bullshit in the world, no need to take it on yourself.

There is a long discussion of this in "City Magick" by Christopher Penczack, as I recall. It is a very interesting topic, and needs to be looked into in a more scholarly way, for sure.

Goddess grant me:
  The power of Water,

  The power of Fire,
  for the energy & courage to change the things I can.

  The power of Air,
  for the ability and wisdom to know the difference.

  And the power of Earth,
  for the strength to continue my path.
