A deity or god is a powerful entity that is worshiped by humans on earth. Many believe deities have great influence over the world and follow them and their teachings. One of the most popular deities known is the Abrahamic God found in Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. In many cases, deities are called upon in rituals to enhance magickal abilities.
Evidence for reverence and beliefs in deities dates back to around 50,000 BCE. In most cases, it is believed that deities exist outside of the earthly realm and manifest rarely or through their magickal or supernatural effects.
