Poll about the gods

Context for this poll: this is asking about deliberately fictional entities, in which you have no literal belief whatever. Fantasy novel gods, not beings you personally worship, although if you have things to say about the appearance of novel characters with the same names and allegedly the same attributes as beings you personally worship, please do tell (in the comments). I just don't know how much I'm outside the norm here for cutting my teeth on D'Aulaire's.

Poll #703617 (Im)mortality and Deity

Are the gods immortal?

Of course. That's what makes them gods. Not immortal, not a god.

By default, I'd assume so, and I'd have some difficulty if a author made casual mention that they weren't.
15(17.2%)
By default, I'd assume so, but it wouldn't be a big deal if an author said they weren't; I'd just go on with the story.
49(56.3%)
I assume not but am willing to hear arguments to the contrary
7(8.0%)
I have no default assumptions in this regard.
