What I believe:

I believe that all Gods exist. I believe that Jesus and Buddha are real Gods because they are venerated as Gods. I believe that the Gods of the Romans, Greeks, Hindus, Aztecs, and everyone else are real. I disbelieve that the God of the Abrahamic religions is the ONLY god.

I believe in multiple Gods and Goddesses. I believe that they may or may not be part of a greater whole.

Here is a link to Cei Serith's website which is highly influential in my own polytheistic spirituality:

I don't think Buddha is supposed to be reverered as a god in a Buddhist context, is he? From what I can vaguely recall, Buddha is one of many buddhas?

I am not an expert in Buddhist theology or beliefs. Other people know more.

My point was that polytheistic faith allows me to accept the existence and perhaps validity of other people's gods, saints, messiahs, demons, angels, spirits, or whatever, and that I gain nothing about disproving their existence or the validity or belief.

The belief I lean towards is that they all potentially exist, but that I have a closer grouping of deities and spirits who are significant to me, and that is who I maintain a relationship with.
