    Honestly, I don't care to respond. I've heard the same thing so many times over and over, all of which is directly contradicted in the scriptures. Let's leave it at differing opinions in this case.

    "Under illusion you are now declining to act according to My direction. But, compelled by your own nature, you will act all the same, O son of Kunti. " -Chapter 18, Verse 60.

    well if you look into the germanic religion there is indeed some kind of force beyond the gods, that even the gods have to bow to : wyrd
    some googling about, for more information to dig in about it. I am familiar with the surface notion of its existence and I wish to put in another statement.

    wyrd, being a feminine noun.. could it be theorized then, that it would be that Chief of Chiefs I spoke of? In this case though being a she and not a he, as opposed to the monotheists fascination with a masculine figurehead.

    Wyrd can be changed, though not easy. In Norse mythology fate is not fixed, and time isn't seen in the same sense as the Mediterranean philosophies. You have the three Wyrd sisters (the Nornir).

    Urd, "That which is"
    Verthanthi, "That which is becoming."
    Skuld, "That which may/should be."

    It can be changed for the Anglo Saxons.

    To most of the Germanic world there was just Wyrd ... a force of dynamism in Creation that "makes things go". Ultimately, Wyrd is the force of transience in creation, and juxtaposed to tir (glory) and the glorious essence of divinity (tiv, tyr, ziori).

    Wyrd cannot be escaped ... Wyrd goes as she will ... Wyrd broke that ...

    Snorri's Three Sisters are more reminscient of the Matrons, and even Snorri himself remarks that there are many Norns.

    I personally do not buy into the notion that the Tivar are beholdent to Wyrd. Rather, they are experts at controlling it, and riding it's ebb and flow even as the vikings were experts at sailing.

    If anything remotely divine is subject to Wyrd it is their cultural forms. Once Bifrost is broken, the wih essence of those hallowed forms is lost, and then, in the organic language of the Eddas, those forms begin to droop and wither. But, as per the Eddas, that vital hallowing wih force can return, because it exists separate of the temporal world.

    Cattle die, kinsmen die, and so shall you yourself, but I know one thing that NEVER dies ...

    And this brings us to the gist of the term wih and the force that permeates and unites all of the deities of all of the religions of all of the cultures of Man ... mystery.

    At the heart of every god is an inscutable mystery that is unlike anything in our mortal temporal experience ... in the face of which we can only stand, silent, in awe ... and/or terror.

    This mystery unites all of the gods. It's not a montheistic concept by any means, and in fact flies in the face of your typical monotheistic certitude. Mystery = we do not and CANNOT know.

    Cheers!

    I would stretch as far to say that Japanese Shinto is a splinter off of our own religion, as some tales in that seem to relate to the River Styx stories of Hellenic religion, and the polytheism.
    How much of the similarity is due to the steppe riders and is it possible the Japanese migrated east? Kiki myth is very Indo-European as are those of Turco-Mongols.
