I am inclined to believe that this is a monotheism-polluted view. In
hinduism or European paganism "gods" are the epithomes, and the memory, of
"founding heroes".

Even as late as the Roman empire late emperors were considered to have
achieved a post-mortem "divine" status owing to their period in office. :-)
