Tiber Septim was born a nord, but due to his acts of valor he was selected by the 8 divines to ascend to godhood. so the thalmor saying he's not a god is actually going against the word of the 8.
#43 to #10 - tealkangaroo (10/20/2012) [-]
The only reason the Thalmor are saying he isn't a god and aren't allowing his worship, is so the the Nords get their panties in a twist and start a rebellion against the Empire, and thus weakening Skyrim's defences and making it easier for the High Elves to invade!
User avatar #21 to #10 - Vezmic (10/20/2012) [-]
think of it as like Christians and Jews. Christians say Jesus (Tiber Septim) is son of god in other words god. while Jews (Thalmor) say no hes not hes a very respectable man but that's it
User avatar #26 to #21 - OsamaBinLadenz (10/20/2012) [-]
Thing is the 8 divines had selected him, not the nords, imperials, or anyone else. They're the divines, so realistically can't they choose to make him a god?
User avatar #32 to #26 - Vezmic (10/20/2012) [-]
its still the same thing everyone is saying he was chosen by the gods thalmor are saying didnt happen he was just a normal mortal an if you think he rose to become a god your believing one religion if you think he was just another person with a high status your believing another
User avatar #39 to #32 - KillinTime (10/20/2012) [-]
it basically all comes down to the thalmor thinking that humans are worthless scum, and that they are superior.

if Talos had been an elf who ascended to godhood then they would have no problem.
#56 to #39 - anon (11/14/2012) [-]
In the book "Ark'ay, the God of Birth and Death" introduced in Daggerfall
Arkay is hinted at being a man who ascended yet the Thalmor accept him

I don't think you understand.
#34 to #23 - chunkeyninja (10/20/2012) [-]
the point is that talos amulets are imbued with magic just as his shrines are, if there was no talos then where does the blessing come from
User avatar #35 to #34 - fuzzyballs (10/20/2012) [-]
so in warhammer 40K, the orcs their weapons only work for them, why is that?
because they have a shared "psyche", and if they all think something works, it does for them
never heard "red unz go fasta"?

so if you're searching for logic where it doesn't belong, here you go
#52 to #35 - anon (10/20/2012) [-]
WAAAAAGH! The WAAAAGH is a sort of reality-bending field (its also a battlecry) that actually bends reality to fit Ork needs. That is why Orkoid weapons only work for Orkoids, and why red things go faster.

The Emperor is a god because the Empire of Mankind thinks he is.

Things are different in the Warhammer 40k universe because of the Immaterium.
User avatar #49 to #45 - fuzzyballs (10/20/2012) [-]
he's a god because he pretty much is
there used to be druids, who could be reborn, but all of a sudden there was this... void
and it absorbed their "souls"
so they all got together, and in the end decided, that in order to still be able to guide mankind, they commited mass suicide, to create on large soul, which is now the emperor, a man bigger than the average man, stronger, like a ******* Hercules, couldn't die of age

so yeah, he IS a god
User avatar #50 to #49 - fuzzyballs (10/20/2012) [-]
he was born in Turkey I think, around the time of Christ, and was some of the important people in the history of mankind, and he realised that it's greatest enemy was itself, so he managed to unite them, and mankind started terraforming other planets

after some time, there were too many planets for him alone to guide, so he had to be "cloned" which created the primarchs, they were lost in space, there were 20 of them, but 4 disappeared forever, presumable dead

now these primarchs share some qualities of the emperor, superhuman intellect, speed, strength, all that **** to make great military leaders

some more history, the "void" thing corrupted some primarchs, and thus their whole chapter, they went to war with eachother, the emperor was mortally wounded, was put in stasis, and powers all of earth, or so they say in the codex

If god's not real, how come Victor Frankenstein blames himself for "playing god" when he creates his monster?

"Playing god" doesn't have to mean the christian god. It could mean thinking you're any sort of god.
