Amalgamated Deities?

I have been thinking about this for a while and after reading a thread on Lucifer i thought id ask. Given that a number of deity's as we might know them are the result of the amalgamation of other earlier deities, how dies this effect your worship?

If they came about because of a misinterpretation of old texts or through the absorption of other religions does that make them less valid? I would think it would be less of a problem for soft polytheists, but what about hard polytheists who believe each deity is a completely separate and individual being?
