The and tags seem to be a little unnecessary. At the very least, they are redundant with respect to each other. Also, as has been discussed here I'm not even sure if these words make any sense to use on our site.

Simply put, the tags are synonyms, and on top of that, they're very ambiguous.

Perhaps we need a tag for questions referring to any arbitrary mortal deities and refer to any specific gods with individual tags like the tag.

It might also be helpful to have a tag to refer to the supreme deity, but since everyone interprets the identity and name of that diety differently, I'm frankly not sure what we would call it.

I have now mapped all the questions with the tag with and now the is a synonym of .

I wouldn't agree to this. As I mentioned in another answer before,, word devas is not a generalized term used worldwide. Not only that, if you are making a tag of devas then you will need to create more tags such as devi, mata, rakshasa etc... which will further create a mess if tagged wrongly.

I agree that gods is too general, some may say that we shouldn't have that tag at all but we don't talk about gods only, we talk about culture, religion, practices, tradition etc, so in a way, tag is perfectly fine according to me and need no further modifications.

If you want, I can create synonyms for you, like is a synonym to and so on but need some solid references before I do that.

  • I personally think it makes sense for devas and gods to be synonyms, since if we're going with the plural form of the latter, it really ought to encapsulate Devas in its intended meaning. – Akshay Aug 23 '14 at 5:59

    @Akshay Great, will wait for few comments from other users and will take necessary action or you can request the synonym by asking another question which will be much better to do so. – Mr. Alien Aug 23 '14 at 6:00
  • @Mr.Alien, I would rather suggest to remove GODS tag, it states multiplicity, inplace GOD holds good. – Mr. K Aug 23 '14 at 18:38
