Discussion: Connections?

I have a question: How can this wiki's mythos possibly reconcile the fact that it mixes so many lores? From the Christian Lore of the Antichrist (and yet there's no Christ?), to Angels and Demons of Abrahamic Lore, both monotheistic, to the Aztec God of Tezcatlipoca, a polytheistic mythos, to the concepts of Chinese and Japanese folklore, all of these beings seem utterly contradicting and unable to co-exist. How can both Gaia, from Greco-Roman paganism, and Satan, from Abrahamic lore, exist side-by-side?

This wiki actually has both the Horsemen of the Apocalypse and Fenrir. Those are from two totally different mythologies with very, very, loose similarities (largely because the tale of Ragnarok was written down, not by Vikings, but by Christians). How can there be two apocalypse narratives that are both seemingly valid?

I think this is worthy of a discussion, don't you? So, in short:

How does this Wiki's lore reconcile the multiple and contradicting narratives within it?

Is there a singular truth on this wiki, or are all mythologies equally valid, despite their contradictions?

How do you account for this wiki's disturbing lack of ALMSIVI?

It's painfully obvious that you don't understand, Lord. The wiki, according to what Daemon has told me, focuses soley on the supernatural. And this wiki could be compared to the TV show Supernatural, itself. Now let me ask you if you were the creator of the show: why are many mythological lores in the same universe that focuses on basic lores such as werewolves, vampires, angels, and demons? Why did you put in Pagan gods like the Norse, Greek, and Japanese? What do they have to do with the supernatural? And the Leviathans? In the show they're said to be God's first creations. And that isn't anywhere in the Bible or any of that religion stuff. So, why create something that is fictional in Supernatural? In laymen's terms, this wiki follows the same concept as the show Supernatural. So, for the sake of everyone that enjoys role playing in this wiki, don't be the needle in the haystack. I for one am intrigued by the information of the creatures and beings here in this wiki. And Supernatural happens to be one of my favorite shows, and since this wiki follows the same concept, then I'm content to role play here.

It's as Pawn said, this wiki follows the same basic concept as the television show Supernatural. There're many myths and lores in the show, and they all are related to Norse, Chinese, Japanese, Aztec, and they are able to co-exist. But, like Supernatural, they walk among the humans in human form and living about their own personal lives. Because in this universe, the deities of the many classical mythologies have had their eras destroyed after the Judeo-Christian mythology came in the picture. So, they no longer have any worshipers as they used to. And were forced to fade into myth and not be taken as real, when they really are in here. As for the Apocalypses, the mythological Apocalypses like Ragnarok or the Titanomachy, will not happen at the same time as the Biblical Apocalypse. Why? Because they happened, hence why I said that the deities are living among the mortals, reborn as a matter of fact. Only the biblical apocalypse is left to come to pass, and that will come at a later time in the main plot. While it may seem that they're all contradicting one another, they are in fact not. Because they are all connected to one singularity of which I cannot say here since it may provide spoilers for old and new users whom are here. Now, seeing that Pawn and I made it clear, there will be no further discussion about this here.
