      Did I ever deny your second statement?


    No, but you talked over it, without acknowledging that a force that is feared/hated could be considered a god. Otherwise you wouldn't try to use Galactus' negative reception as a disqualifier. It ain't.

    The fact is that what makes a god, especially in the Marvel Universe, is highly ambiguous and debatable. Gladiator has been called a god. Surtur has been called a god. Thanos has been called a god. Does it require worship? How much worship, and for how long? Don't you think many of the civilizations Galactus has destroyed saw him as a god, even if only for the moments prior to their death? Undeniably yes, they did. The mammalian brain is just designed that way.

    In truth, Galactus can be called a god by virtue of power alone. Amora, Lorelei, and Karnilla are called goddesses, but they were never really worshiped anywhere.


Let's take this one step at a time my friend.

"No, but you talked over it, without acknowledging that a force that is feared/hated could be considered a god. Otherwise you wouldn't try to use Galactus' negative reception as a disqualifier. It ain't."

Logic dictates what you say has merit. However if you want to get into "assumptions" then I would assume if, as you imply, then the race would be primitive or what is considered the low stages of evolution.
(storm gods, volcano gods, etc.)

Assuming that you agree with me here. Such a race or races would probably have little knowledge of Galactus. Upon his arrival, sure they may regard him as a god. However if G does arrive, then their civilization will most assuredly be gone. These would be worshipers would be no more.

"Don't you think many of the civilizations Galactus has destroyed saw him as a god, even if only for the moments prior to their death? Undeniably yes, they did. The mammalian brain is just designed that way."

We think alike as I read your first paragraph then answered, and now reply to your second statement. But that gets me to my point. If these worshippers existed, then there is a strong possibility that they do not exist after Galactus' visit. Which gets back to my original statement in a previous post:

"For all we know G has consumed any so called worshipers over the eons of existence he's been wiping out civilizations."

Therefore there may not be any Galactus worshippers other than the ones that G consumed.
