So, the world was created by the ultimate Deity UL (Always capitalized, as well as any pronouns referring to Him). However, an even greater force was present, a force which guided everything towards its future lay hidden. It was known as the prophecy. However, one day a star died in the wrong place and time, and to save itself, the prophecy split itself into two. They both created a world and filled it with people, so that they could decide which of them bore the true path of the original prophecy through a great game.

At the same time as the split, the God UL created his sons as figments of His mind. He created Belar, Nedra, Issa, Aldur, Mara, Chaldan, and lastly Torak (who is really an accident born of the split).

Anyway, so basically the gods all choose humans to dwell with, except UL who was never really part of the choosing, and Aldur, who sought to better understand the world. Torak took his people and demanded burnt sacrifices of humans, Nedra was greedy and so were his people, Belar and his people fought and did not think, and Chaldan's people faught only for valor, senselessly killing one another, Issa's people were druggies.

In his solitude, many sought out Aldur. The first of them being Garath, whose name was changed to Belgarath. His followers became sorcerers. Belgarath had a wife named Poledra (originally a wolf with magic powers, she transformed herself into a human with big bazungas) and had two daughters, Polgara ( a witch!) and Beldaran (RIP... She had to marry the blonde prince). Besides Beldaran, who died at a normal age, and Poledra, who just kind of disappeared, Belgarath, Polgara, and the other sorcerers who did not commit suicide at some point (two of them did) lived indefinitely with Aldur.

Through a bunch of stuff, Beldaran's great great great great........ grandson Garion (Belgarion) killed the evil god Torak with a magic stone representing one prophecy. Then, through more adventures, his creepy blonde friend Eriond was chosen to be a god instead of his son Geran, which was decided by using the powers of the stones of the prophecies, Cthrag Yaska (the orb of Aldur, or the orb) and Cthrag Sardius (The Sardion).

So basically, Garion's prophecy and the other prophecy merged once more, and the enemies were defeated, and Eriond became the god of that world. This is where the series the Belgariad and the Malloreon (By David Eddings) stop.

Now, in the Belgarianist religion, it is believed that all the gods (except UL, who is literally omnipresent, unlike the other gods) left that world, and came to this world. Each of the gods represent a vice and a virtue in the religion. Torak's spirit is also here.

Issa represents both utility and sloth
Belar represents democracy and disorder
Mara represents liberalism and ignoring global problems
Nedra represents skepticism and greed
Chaldan - represents respect and too much honor
Torak - represents progress and disregarding human life
Aldur - represents knowledge and ignorance

Belgarianism seeks to learn the virtues of all the gods, and avoid the vices. Worshipping UL and calling on Eriond to bring all virtues to this world are also part of the belief.

Belgarianism is a belief based on moderation and silence. Only about a millionth of Belgarianist admit to being belgarianist. Multiply me, and the four other people who admit it by a million.
