Wednesday's winner:

Moses (3 votes)

over

Durga (2 votes)

A genuine surprise today, as Moses beats out the goddess Durga to take the second-last battle of round one.

Featured commentary:
"mm let's see... multiple armed warrior woman riding lion vs. guy who tried to weasel his way out of being YHWH's messenger, turned some staffs into snakes, and wrote down some stuff on stone tablets. Clearly, YHWH was the strong arm behind all the plague causing and whatnot. Since this isn't a Moses & YHWH tagteam fight, Durga's trident will easily triumph over Moses." - Melissa

Today's match:

Gautama Buddha, the historic founder of Buddhism

vs

Lord Ganesha, the Hindu remover of obstacles

A veritable Battle of the Bulge ends our first round. Which one hasn't got in in their considerable belly to move on to round deuce? That up to you to decide. Round two will begin Monday.

One guy defeated the Lord of Pretty Much Everything and went on to achieve enlightenment and found a major religion (not to mention he was a warrior-prince). The other one may have the head of an elephant, a bunch of arms, and maybe a few weapons, but the dude rides a freakin' rat!

Buddha for the win.

Buddha probably could win this, but he's got no genuine beef with Ganesha, so instead he'd just sit under his tree and drink rice milk all day.

Methinks if Ganesh ever haughtily challenged Buddha, Buddha would probably crush him under a mountain for 500 years to teach him a lesson humility, feeding him only with molten metal and hot coals. At least, precedent says as much.

Ganesha, because he's by far my favourite Hindu deity... oh, you want actual reasons? Ummm... he's got some kind of axe thing in his picture. It looks pretty deadly.

And who knows, maybe the Buddha is allergic to flowers. Then Ganesha can just shove a lotus at him.

If Ganesha's so tough, why'd he get his human head cut off in the first place? (Infancy is no excuse). Plus the Buddha has that extra lump of brain on the top of his head to help him devise some wiley win tactics.
