"different people...may have different names for these God(s) and Goddess(es)"
^I have heard the above quote many times IRL and on Cafemom, and it really did make sense to me...until I started thinking about Odin of the Norse religion.
If the gods and goddesses from different culture are actually the same god and goddess, but with different names, then why are the Greek Zeus and Roman Jupiter both rulers of the gods and in control of thunder, but the Norse Thor is only in control of thunder while Odin is the king of the gods?
Can you help me understand?

I agree with anime mom and cornflakegirl. I think if name were less important and we focused more on being nice to those around us the world would be a better place. As I have said before, religion is man's take on faith, not God's (or whatever name you use). People have just mucked up faith in my opinion.
