    Biased gods?

    Do the human birthed Chaos gods not like Slannesh because he/she was birthed by the Eldar? If they are created from humans, is it quite possible they don't like Slannesh becuase he/she is an outsider. Slannesh is not made of human emotions, but alien emotions. Whereas Khorne, Nurgle, and tzeentch are purely human creations.

    I like your view on the matter but is it true that the three other chaos gods were creations of humanity?

    where did they state this; because it lowers my opinion of GW if this is official cannon-- all the chaos gods are more like the great old ones of hp lovecraft

    I'd actually like to read that. Where did you find it?
    No.

    Lexicanum, it says Khorne came about during Terra's Middle ages. DOn't the GW people read Lexixanum to make sure its correct? Or is it a fan run institution. If so I retract my statement, but i seriously doubt someone would make such an accusation without proof

    The Lexicanum page is a wiki like any other. Games Workshop doesn't check it for inaccuracies, as it's not officially GW canon. Granted, a lot of the information on there has been gathered from various official GW sources, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's true or that it holds any salt in the current 40k universe.

    It says when he came into existence, not how. Seeing as to how the birth of Slaanesh screwed the Eldar over, I'd imagine that if humanity were indeed the founders of Khorne Earth would be pretty uncomfortable by now.
    Also, if the medieval was enough to generate Khorne, then humanity turned out to be worse during only a few hundred years than the entire rest of the galaxy had managed in compound for an eternity. Hardly a glowing testimonial to the greatness of humanity, especially given the rather heated Eldar/Yngir war that took place some time in the distant past.
    No.
