He's an artist. He could create symbolism. The Zues as Yahweh is just kinda played out.

1. Sure... but petty.
2. I agree... but YHWH as a beard man/Zeus is played out.
3. What does the masonic eye have to do with Yahweh? You're thinking of the Architect. 
4. Really How did you come to that conclusion? 
5. What is "humorous" is person relative.  It isn't "humorous" because it's a played out concept. 
6. I didn't "force' you to do anything. You replied of your own volition.
7. You're a limey? I had a feeling.
8. Uh...Ok.

Fine.
1. "Create" symbolism. Wrong verb.
2. Representing Yahweh as a bearded man is already symbolic, since Yahweh is generally understood a supreme force incomprehensible to human minds and therefore doesn't actually look like a bearded man.
3. He actually DID employ symbolism by using the Scriptures and the Masonic triangle-eye thing to identify that bearded man as Yahweh.
4. The way you phrased it makes it sound like what is played out is representing Zeus as Yahweh, when in fact the reverse is true, since the worship and artistic representation of Zeus precedes that of Yahweh.
5. This is an image intended for humurous effect, and therefore I doubt being "played out" is a major sin here. Even if you were to consider the representation of Yahweh as a bearded man a cliché rather than a necessity, that would still serve the purpose of this image, since it would allow for the quick identification of that figure as Yahweh. Had he represented Yahweh as a cat or a bycicle with wings, the average viewer's immediate response would be "What the fuck is this?"
6. You just forced me do a list to explain a joke.
7. My first reply to you was also a joke, and you forced me to do a list to explain THAT joke, you wanker.
And 8. Your avatar is weird.

Isn't Zeus also a God? More like Zeus vs Yahweh.

Oh, the title was alright (English Christians indeed call Yaheh God), I was just being a bit pedantic.

It's weird, in English "deus" seems similarly generic (i.e. it means "a god" or "a deity" rather than a specific creature). I guess the closest Portuguese equivalent to that is "divindade".

Actually, "deus" in latin comes from the greek god "zeus" it's a linguisitc deformation and because Zeus was the most important god for greeks, it became a generic term for the Latins and then the languages that came from latin wich explains how portuguese uses the term x)

The term isn't generic in Portuguese though, is it? As with "God" (capitalized) in English, it pretty strongly identifies the Christian deity Yahweh, yes? Same w/Dio in Italian, Dios in Spanish and Dieu in French? Deus was generic in in Latin only until the Christianization of Late Latin (circa 200-500 AD). Prior to that (in Classical Latin) it was generic.

I could be wrong, but I don't think "deus" is a Latin corruption of the Greek "Zeus". My understanding is that both words simply derive from the same Proto-Indo-European root (dyeu-, "to shine). There are a great many words in both Greek and Latin which derive from this same root (and through them, the Romance languages and English, which borrows from them).

I just checked and yes you're right both comes from the same root! However, "deus" is both generic and associated to God, if capitalized! In French, for example: "Dieu" is "God" in monotheists religions (as Christianism or Islam) and "un dieu" or "dieux" is used to refer to polytheists religons. As in englsih where you have God and gods x) You've got a great knowledge about this! What courses did you take? (I take latin and greek classes)

I see! Thanks for the chat. Most of what I know about Latin/Greek etymology comes from a comparative religion class and my own investigations. I'm kind of an amateur language nerd; I'm more interested in etymology and comparative linguistics than semiotics (although semiotics is also interesting).

I spend a lot of time talking with my religious friends and relatives about their beliefs (I live in the middle of the USA where many people are quite serious about their Christianity). I tend to discuss historicity and language a lot. I therefore know a bit about Classical and Late Latin, various dialects of Greek, and some Aramaic and Hebrew (the latter two mostly as they relate to the Tanakh/OT). I'm not religious myself and I tend to think many of my Christian peers have bad moral ideas. I want to make the world better, so recounting the history of the language in their sacred texts is a conduit to getting them to think more reasonably about ethics (if they can see the text more as an evolved man-made document and less as an absolute truth, they tend to become more tolerant and inclusive).

Aha you're welcome. I, for one, am interested in theology and ethnology as in languages x) I totally agree with you about developping a new way to read sacred texts! I tend to think that religions and their application are evolving towards something more private and closer to a spirituality and a personal search but I don't live in the USA so I can't say xD

You also could have had the planet Jupiter over Zeus and Saturn over "god" (in Gnosticism that is, I say little "g" cause the God of the bible is the only true God!)
