Gong-gong is the Chinese god of floods and is the next divinity I am remembering from the atheist “graveyard”. July is the start of the flood season for most rivers in China. It is a huge challenge to those who work the land. The rivers are a double-edge sword; without water nothing will grow but with too much water, lives and crops can be lost. So it is very much a love/hate relationship with these fast moving rivers. The Chinese have several eccentric river gods and Gong-gong is one of them.
