About This Quiz

These days, most people - even the ones who believe that no higher power actually exists, or that if it does, it's not sentient - subscribe to a vision of God that is highly masculine. It's a jealous, authoritative, wrathful God who enjoys a male stereotype, and who is is simultaneously very loving and all-powerful but lets terrible things happen for reasons known only to Himself.

However, our perception of this sort of deity isn't the only one to appear in the many cultures and nations of the world. Pagan faiths from ancient Egypt or Greece to the Celts to the Nordic deities were all full of powerful goddesses who were the equal of any male deity. 

They were often loving, to be sure, but for some of them, that love was highly conditional on your behavior - and just because they might help you out, doesn't mean they would let anyone take advantage of them. They blessed and supported fields of human endeavor from war to childbirth, from literature to architecture to hunting and beyond. You messed with them at your peril.
