Why Is The Fear of God In Our DNA? Throughout history we see... Cavemen feared the thunder. The Romans had Juno, Jupiter, and Mars The Greeks had Hera, Zeus, and Ares. The Vikings had Odin and Thor (cool action figure, BTW) and worshipped their ancestors. The Incas had Illapa, the Weather God (my favorite, but I'm a biased Air Force meteorologist), and believed in Inti, the Sun god. The Yorùbá of Africa have Ọlọ́run, the supreme creator diety as well as gods of the air, volcanoes, rivers and war. The Aborigines have the Wandjina spirits. Hindus have Viraj and Purusha. The Inuit have Igaluk, god of the moon, Nanook, master of bears, and Sedna, sea Goddess and ruler of the underworld.
