It's a VETY useful trick when christians ask you how you "can" bre an atheist. Especially when you add the cmapaign by Thorosts to get lightning conductors removed from buildings, as they impeded his divine will. Totally fictional by the way.


yes, it's quite useful here in the other religion forum rather than the christian forum. also what's a Thorost?

I'm talking about paganism as practiced on Antiquity. They as a rule recognized the deities of their neighbors as true, even if they didn't worship them. BTW, i would like to know how do you decide whether a deity is real or not.

Cite me your references that indicates every pagan in the ancient world considered monotheists to be atheists.

"they as a rule"? show me evidence that all pagans shared this rule.


The gods in my pantheon are real, other ones I don't care about.

I'm an atheist and I don't believe in Thor (redundant statement) but he's my favorite mythical god. His way of dealing with things is very- blunt. Nor does he have a later segment of the holy book where he suddenly becomes the opposite of what he started out being.


Agree. Thor kicks ass. And he has his own Marvel comic. How many gods can say that??? Pussies.
