Philosophy, With The lack of knowledge

Philosophy, originating from the Greek words meaning, love of wisdom and the study of knowledge, existence and reality, The foundational ideas laid by the great thinkers such as Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle still Influence our understanding of this world today, scholars began to use reason, with logic unlike todays Governing powers, to unravel the workings of the world as we understand it, they also explored the intricacies of human morality which is a lesson long forgotten by some local and foreign entity’s in today’s environment:
Questions:  The everlasting elusive pursuit for the love of wisdom to an unbiased mind.
What are man’s actions now with the phylogenesis presented from time and knowledge left by his forefathers Seeking to understand the fundamental design of a higher being if there be one. One God or the Gods of the sun, sea, fire, and land and the hunter from early man that walked this earth.
But what of the Gods of the Greeks, Zeus the father of all Gods, Hera the goddess of marriage,  Poseidon the son of the sea, Demeter the goddess of agricultural , Athena the goddess of wisdom, Apollo God of Poetry, Artemis the goddess of the hunt, Ares God of War, Hephaestus a fire God, Aphrodite the goddess of love and sex, Hermes the God of speed and travel and Hestia the virgin goddess, and Morpheus the Greek God of Dreams, then Hades ruler of the underworld for the dead, all are known as the Olympians,
Then what of the Gods of the Romen empire, Jupiter the King of Gods, Juno the Queen of Deities, Minerva the goddess of workers, Mars the God of War, Mercury with his winged sandals, Venus the goddess of Love and Bacchus, Yes Bacchus was the Romen God of Wine.
Let’s not forget the Viking Gods, Thor the hammer wielding God of thunder, Odin immensely wise, Loki God of mischief and Heimdall the son of Odin the keeper of the watch, and not to forget FreyJa the God of Love.

One more worth adding is the Mayan Gods, Itzamma known as the creator, Ix Chel the maya goddess of love, Kukulkan the serpent deity, Chaac the God of storms, then Yum Kaax the guardian of animals, Kinich  Ahau the sun God, then Cacos the Mayan God of War.
Now one of the last be not least is the Deities of India, Genesha the elephant head God and revered by all, Hanuman half man half monkey, Laksmi is represented as the goddess of wealth, then Shiva the God of destruction, Brama is the creator of supreme divinity.
Look at the Chinese Gods, Bixia a goddess of fertility and guardian of children, Caishen will bring wealth and turn iron into gold, with Cangjie the hero credited with creating Chinese writing, Changxi the mother of mythology, Dianmu was married to the thunder God, then we have the Dragon King god of water, weather, and dragons.
And next door we have the Japanese Gods, Amateraus the goddess of the sun, next is Ebisu one of the shichi-fuku-jin the patron of fisherman, Hachiman is the ancient Shinto God or kami of war and credited with the divine wind, Tsukuyomi-no-mikoto is the God of the moon, last but not all is Hotei one of the shichi fukujin he  is the God of happiness, with his friend Raijin the God of thunder and lighting.
Now in today’s world we have the Religion of  Christianity, God, and his son Jesus with his mother Mary, bothers James and joseph. Islam, the qur’an declares the reality of Allah, Allah dose not depend on anything and God is not a part of the Christian  trinity, Irreligionis not the same as Atheism agnosticism is to doubt the existence of God, Hinduism with the supreme God being Shiva, Buddhism at its roots is not theistic religion but a code of conduct for enlightenment for man, and Folk religions related to ethnicity and or tribes Native Americans, Australian aboriginal people, again todays religions are broken down into subcomponents ( i.e., protestant and Catholics ) all under the banner of  Christianity, we’ll all Roman Catholics are Christian but not all Christians are Roman Catholics  plus numerous others in their related religions and beliefs. Make up today’s world as we live to include Scientology, man is an immortal spiritual being,

Back to the outstanding questions from the lack of knowledge:

If there is a deity regardless of name or faith, then why dose he allow carnage to prevail in his name upon mankind and this planet.
