Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day everyone here is some of the Great Father of the Gods in myths and legend

Anu belongs to the oldest generation of Mesopotamian gods and was originally the supreme deity of the Babylonian pantheon. He was also "Father of the Gods", "Lord of the Constellations, Spirits and Demons", and "Supreme Ruler of the Kingdom of Heaven", where Anu himself wandered the highest Heavenly Regions. He was believed to have the power to judge those who had committed crimes, and to have created the stars as soldiers to destroy the wicked.
Ra is Egyptian sun god can be likened unto the Christian God, as a supreme deity and creator. He created the 8 great gods and the human race came from his tears.  As the first god aside from being more powerful than others, he is the Lord of Ma'at and essential to the survival of the universe. Akin to how a plant needs sunlight to live, with Ra as the Sun which feeds the plant; if Ra was to die then the universe, like a sunless plant, will slowly wither and die. Ra is the "heart" of the Egyptian gods and, by extension, the entire universe. Even if the others do not acknowledge it or possibly don't even know it presumably didn't know the consequences or care, without Ra, the rest of the gods would eventually fade into nothingness.
Ahura Mazda is described as the highest deity of worship in Zoroastrianism, along with being the first and most frequently invoked deity in the Yasna. The word Ahura means light and Mazda means wisdom. Thus Ahura Mazda is the lord of light and wisdom. Ahura Mazda is the creator and upholder of Arta (truth). Ahura Mazda is an omniscient (though not omnipotent) god, who would eventually destroy evil. Ahura Mazda, the leader of the Yazatas, appears as a forties Persian man with curly beard, normally wearing pure white robes and a staff, that he uses to guide his people or his cattle. He created all that exists in the World. He’s also the leader of the Amesha Spentas and part of the Ahuric triad.
Zeus is the King of the Gods and God of the Sky, Law and Order. He also ordered the heavenly bodies, made laws, enforced oaths and pronounced oracles. He is the venerable patriarch of the ancient Greeks.  As the father of the gods, Zeus sees that each deity performs his or her individual duty, punishes their misdeeds, settles their disputes, and acts towards them on all occasions as their all-knowing counsellor and mighty friend. As the father of men, he takes a paternal interest in the actions and well-being of mortals. He watches over them with tender solicitude, rewarding truth, charity, and uprightness, but severely punishing perjury, cruelty, and want of hospitality. Even the poorest and most forlorn wanderer finds in him a powerful advocate, for he, by a wise and merciful dispensation, ordains that the mighty ones of the earth should succor their distressed and needy brethren.
Jupiter, also called Jove, Latin Iuppiter or Iovis, is the ancient Roman and Italian Supreme Ruler of Heaven & Earth and the Father of the Gods. One of his most ancient epithets is Lucetius (“Light-Bringer”); and later literature has preserved the same idea in such phrases as sub Iove, “under the open sky.” As Jupiter Elicius, he propitiated with a peculiar ritual to send rain in time of drought; as Jupiter Fulgur, he had an altar in the Campus Martius, and all places struck by lightning made his property and guarded from the profane by a circular wall.
Odin is the chief of the Aesir tribe of Norse deities, yet he often ventures far from their kingdom, Asgard, on long, solitary wanderings throughout the cosmos on purely self-interested quests. Odin was the son of Bor and Bestla. He had many other names, including Alfather, signifying his reputation as the father of the gods. He was married to Frigg, who was the mother of Balder, Hod, and Hermod. Odin fathered Thor with a goddess named Jord and Vider with a giantess named Grid.
Obatala is the kindly father of all the Orishas and all humanity. He is also the owner of all heads and the mind. Though it was Olorun who created the universe, it is Obatala who is the creator of the world and humanity. Obatala is the source of all that is pure, wise, peaceful and compassionate. He has a warrior side, though, through which he enforces justice in the world. His color is white, which is often accented with red, purple and other colors to represent different possible paths.
