Xaya Iccita is another of my occasional gods, brought in to illustrate the fact that there is more than one god worshipped on this small planet of ours. This one resides in central Siberia and is considered the master, perhaps even the owner, of the mountains. Not a lot more for me to say on this one, except that some people believe this deity is real and wields power. Whilst such beliefs should be respected, for what they are, I don’t think we should ever elevate belief to a place higher than that accorded to factual material based on evidence.
