Why do the deities seem so useless now?

Something I've noticed while lurking the threads here. We all know how back in the day every society had tales of gods wrecking shit up, doing natural disasters and creating and ending dynasties and everything, but from what it seems now you can't even feel them put a finger on your ass if you don't take several months to master meditation and energy work and etc first. I've never seen any conjurer use them for an errand bigger than 'finding a job' or 'finding a lost key' or some other chore. Who nerfed the gods?

    Gods are timeless.

    There's just a frickton more humans about, "gods" don't have a big a slice of the pie anymore. Which is of course embarrassing for all the gods claiming to be the omnipotent creators of the univserse when they get mogged by a couple billion humans. Really, anything that goes around directly messing with humans rather than rewriting reality from scratch is 100% just a finite spirit with an overgrown ego.

      This makes a lot of sense really. It's probably why you here the occasional odd miracle, ghost story or angry god but the whole world is generally still shitty as hell and runs on with no significant intervention.

    You already have the real answer. Stories, tales. Not real.
    The alternative /x/ answer is to LARP that the gods are weaker for some stupid reason or they will come back or some shit.

          Correct. I also know that your mom exists, and I certainly spend a lot of time with her.
          You're so pathetic it's hilarious. Thanks for making my day. Cheers.

    you can get very good results with very little tbh, it all depends on disposition - both yours and theirs

      You've literally proven exactly what the OP was saying. Your gods got nerfed.

        times change and so do powers, it's in flow. don't want to argue opinions, but i'd just like to point out that working with gods only because of what they can do for you in terms of raw power is not the right attitude. it's about guidance and channeling their energy for the right purposes

    it's up to you to connect to spirits. yes it requires months of work but it's not strenuous as modern world application. it requires a fresh organic diet meaning no processed food or pesticided, circadian rhythm, waking up before sunrise is better, stretching or another form of exercise that genuinely makes you smile and happy, doing in nature is best
    then meditation to feel the body and understand why one feels how they feel inside, all of that provides a lengthened joyous state
    none of those require rigorous strain, on the contrary. with limited amount during day it's more apparent none of this is forced and there's a natural holistic profession

        why do you want to see the destructive aspects of spirits? it is only when hubris overbalances that occurs

    Seems like technology + intervention by flawed beings for purposes of context control.

    Operand conditioning. It makes you wonder if life it's self is even worth participating in, even if it wasn't controlled would freedom be better? Freedom to control one's own emotions? Feel good as desired, higher and higher? Transcend body and perception? No flawed system attempting to harm others when there are no others beyond an illusionary false perception?

    What does it mean when the context you project is noticeably false, and all you do is lie? Do you not know? Or is it that you know and it's why you lie?

      Even in that context presented, is "freedom" in this sense even free? Or is it just another hidden order imposed? Where that which you want and have is still given?

      What does it mean to be truly free? Better worse? Is it important if you don't feel? If you do feel is feeling better than not feeling? Is it just context?

    and how do you expect faith-based spells to work properly when your faith stat is so low?

      So is lack of faith the achilles heel of all gods? Seems a pretty lame weakness, not at all congruent with most legends of any culture.

        well, it's depend on the type of god
        if they're living concept like a god of destruction, they'll have power regardless, but then why would they ever help you?
        it's about how close you're to one

      another possibility is that this land within the icewall is just far too small for them to notice, unless someone do something spectacular
      would you expect a literal god to keep eye on some random sweatshop in china

    In the west (but to be fair it's the same in most civilised countries) they have specifically severed most of us from the Gods. It's been a slow process, over hundreds of years, they have stripped us of belief and poisoned our minds so that most of us are zombies incapable of connecting to higher powers. Meanwhile the elites carry on their own beliefs and call upon their God's or deities while we peasants have been made too stupid to think any of it is real.

    It was always like that, in the sense that people were reading/hearing about all those incredible acts and wondering why something like that doesn't happen right now, at this very point in time when they are alive.

    And the answer is, of course, it doesn't happen because its all made up bullshit.

    because you dont have mana to fuel them who represent subconscious, dormant faculties, anthropomorphized into personal gods as a skillful means in aiding the exploitation of said subconscious faculties..
