That's not a dictionary definition, which is what you need.

I can help. I have this one in my library:

Everything you want to know about the Norse gods. Great stuff. Way more interesting than that Greek lineup. The desert blood god doesn't even rate at this level of abstraction. I haven't looked to see if they did a treatment of the eastern gods from India, for example.

I refer you back to my field, which still lyeth barren.

Do not worry, you are not missing much. Just fairy tales like any other.

As a matter of fact, I don't like most superhero movies. I don't know if I've ever watched a Marvel one, probably not.

It was good to see a decent story from my home city.
I took some photos of the cross for Wikipedia when the controversy was gathering steam.
I was told at the time the dedication Stone I photographed helped the case. Dunno if that's so or not.
Do know a lot of the reports have failed to mention initially the case started because the refused equal access. If Christians want to have their symbols on public land, they have to be willing to share the space.
I have a soft spot for old monuments, I'd rather it have remained. But that'd require them unbunching their drawers.

Him flicking nuts in the bar was one of the best scenes in superhero movies. :lol: :lol:

One of my absolute favourite books as a kid. I got into trouble at school because I took it out from the library and didn't want to return it. I was very happy when it came back into print a few years ago, and immediately snapped up a copy.

Ammageddon. I can't be bothered to read too much about it though, I don't follow myths. There's a lot of reading there. :lol:

I don't make a habit of following myths either, but something about the Norse ones always appealed to me.
