Jehova is actually a misinterpretation, people still use it because its 'familiar.'

Anyway- all the names of God are simply 'His Name' 'Eternal' and so on, never something specific- its where the 'one' God gets his power from.
blah blah
Ok, so the Emperor.
Emlyn- First of all the Emperor simply replaced religion with (what he thought) science, but humans being humans turned him into a diety unto himself. The term Emperor is the 'he who rules'- its none-specific and therefor timeless and limitless.

ok I'm getting frakking tired of this religious crap on these forums. Most people dislike having names of other peoples deities brought onto forums. Please refrain from using religious names.

Lets just call him Ronald McDonald, after all, he killed enough people to be called that

you know- religion is a very important aspect of 40k- it gains most of its fluff from biblical era legends and writings because the people that write it are geeks/nerds/theologans (woo) like all of us. Bringing up religion is not 'crap' and if you don't like t you don't have to post. I don't think anyone is getting out of hand and I don't think your response needed to be so vehimous edraik

God, Christ, Allah- these are all just titles, your the only one who has voiced dislike for this discussion.

This is one of those times when you just gotta shut your god damn mouth before somebody sows it shut calmsword. I find it very ignorant to use these words so freely and he'd probably have a turkish name, as that is where he originated from.

Allah, Jachwe, Jehova, Christ, Baal, Quetzlaquotl..... and Xenu!

Seriously, come on, these are mere words, nothing more. And I would LOVE to see you sewing MY mouth shut!

If anyone dislikes the matter I or anyone else use them, well, I do not give a crap!

It is not ignorant to use them, it is primitive to fly into fury about such. We live in a secularized world now (which is plain awesome).... get used to it.

And yes, 40k took nerly ALL of his charakters name from mythology (mostly the christian myths).




Besides: All hail the spaghettimonster! I hear you and I will obey! ;D

Greetz, Trogdor

I like how you criticize others' usage of religous names in such informal fashions when you said "god damn" yourself. You are a walking contradiction.
The day you wake up and realize you're a hypocrite the world will be a better place. Calmsword is only expressing well-stated fact. Go to librarium online if you want to fit in with the rest of the judgemental hypocrites.

Edraik has been smitten for flaming/flame-baiting. This thread has gone off-topic enough, we'll stay on topic and keep religious arguments/personal threats and vendettas out.

your right of course.
But back on topic-
The Emperor is now, in the current fluff, supposed to be the last of the Gold Men that lived during the period just before the Age of Strife, he probably is not the old fluff super being that has existed forever.
