So you can't support your assertion. Gotcha.


...it was a joke that prompted the question and I was just giving my preference for the Greek and Norse mythos over that of the Christians


Here's some dictionary definitions of 'preference':

1.
the act of preferring.
2.
the state of being preferred.
3.
that which is preferred; choice:
His preference is vanilla, not chocolate.
4.
a practical advantage given to one over others.
5.
a prior right or claim, as to payment of dividends or to assets upon dissolution.
6.
the favoring of one country or group of countries by granting special advantages over others in international trade.


Please tell me which definition you have in mind, then support your assertion that you gave your 'preference'. My preference is that you do this with quotes.

I get that you might get titilated by this type anal nitpicking of inconsequential things, but I've no interest in enabling you.
