It has, God has walked upon the earth many time's, Jesus IS God incarnate and those that argue against that are actually denying God's omnipotence as
in there limited view of reality God can not make himself small enough to appear as a man.
There is a story from the Coptic faith about Child Jesus while he was in Egypt one day taking two ball's of clay by the bank's of the river and
shaping them in his hand's, he then blew on them giving them life and released them, these two doves them flew away.
So Thor, big muscle bound dood that can crush a big angry walnut with a mighty hammer but can he make a dove, can he make a sick child live - no he
and non of the Norse God's could - they themselves were thoroughly mortal and could not in turn rise from death if they died.
Jesus also fixed reality at other time's, a guy born without eye's, he took some soil, spat into it (hey's it's God's spit so more alive than you or
me) and put it were the man's eye's should be then told him to wash it off, when he did he could see, he had eye's and he could see too much as he
described men as tree's walking because he could not only see outside but inside them were there vein's and bone's were so Jesus then touched him
again and took his hand's away and he could then see human's as the rest of us do rather than from that higher dimension he had only peered into.
Merlin on the other hand was never though of as a god though some story's make him out to be a magician, other's a sage and others a prophet, Arthur
had nothing to do with Merlin legend's until much later when these two legend's were merged by medieval writers and so they were originally
independent figures and Merlin was not Arthur's magician and indeed Merlin may even have been created by just such a writer meaning that only Arthur
then remain's as a genuine legend though Merlin was definitely based on another person, in fact several other people, this writer was named Geoffrey
of Monmouth and so Merlin is actually a chimera of legendary figures made into a single imaginary person he created as a literary tool.
One story about one of the REAL legendary
figure's merlin was based upon and in Geoffrey's' version this is Merlin.
After the Roman's had left the shores of Britain petty rulers rose up to claim and divide the province among themselves, one by the name of
Vortergern or King Vortergern even hired some Saxon mercenary's by the name of Hengist and Horsa (whose name's meant the stallion and the horse so
they were in fact probably as much of Hun ancestry as of Saxon ancestry - remember the Hun's and conquered and subjugated the Germanic people's
including the Saxon's before intermarrying with them and some even believe that Atilla's unwilling Germanic wife may have poisoned him.
After these mercenary's won Vortergern plenty of battle's and had expanded his territory many time's over he betrayed them and did not pay them so
they turned and conquered HIM then brought there relatives over from Germania taking local woman as there wives, this was the start of the Anglo Saxon
