Are there any gods without clay feet?

The feet are more stable if they are baked in a hot fire ;-)

Humans, as demi-gods ... we have fleshy feet, sometimes with fungus.

All deities are humanistic but with greater faults.  We lack imagination.  Any true deity would be incomprehensible.  And I don't mean just "a bit more than us".  I mean as a planaria would view us but a google more different.

Un-Greek.  The Greek gods were more human than the Greeks themselves.  Jack Kennedy and Bill Clinton being prime incarnations of the dalliances of Zeus.
