93. "in my understanding" In response to In response to 89 Wed Aug-24-05 08:31 AM by LexM
they're all sort of cut from the same cloth.
i have yet to come across a belief system that's *truly* "polytheistic" or, to be clearer, that all the gods/goddesses are separate entities in their own right, not simply manifestations of the one creator/creatrix. just about every native american tradition i know of, for example, mentions the "Great Spirit" or some variation.
individuals practicing said faith might take things to extremes, but if you talk to spiritual leaders across the board (the exception appears to be the western traditions), you get an "all is one, one is all" kind of feel.
