Wikipedia isn't really a credible source, but sure.

Although it says Deity-like.

I think it's safer to just say they are not deities but are beings of supernatural force.

A being of supernatural force is what a deity IS.

What about DemiGods and Heros?

If you want to use Greek Myth.

And then what about Ghosts and Vampires and Ghouls and Zombies and Banshees and all of that?

Demigods - are the children of deities, so, logically they're kind of dieties on their own.

The other things are monsters, twists on humanity, not godlike in any fashion.

But they have touches of supernatural force in them.

You said it yourself there is nothing Godlike about them.

Satan, or the Demi-Gods (which is why they are Demi). The Heroes are the sons of gods as well.

A Demi-God for example would be a Nymph, but Nymphs are only worshiped in Antiquity if the gods themselves honour them, and then it's only through their special actions not because they are demanding of reverence.

And I already mentioned Buddha and Mohammed.

I fail to see a point in any of what you just said.

Um, is this particular semantic argument even vaguely useful?

Good, then we're all agreed this discussion is pointless.

Now for the shutting up.
