Deus = Zeus[edit]

Deus(in Laconian Greek), Deus(in Boeotian Greek) = Zeus Böri (talk) 11:17, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Deus = Deity[edit]

The Latin Deus produced Deity in English. - Brad Watson, Miami (talk) 23:43, 15 April 2012 (UTC)

Deus became Dei(3 letters) = God(3) = Holy Trinity[edit]

Deus became Dei because like God, its 3 letters represent the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit: the Holy Trinity. - Brad Watson, Miami (talk) 23:51, 15 April 2012 (UTC)
