Oh so much depends on one's perspective.
I was watching that History Channel show on Zeus. Now,being pagan, I like Zeus, but here's this history special claiming that Jesus dethroned Zeus
and saying that NO ONE worshipped Zeus anymore.
(National Geographic ran a great piece about modern Greek Pagans worshipping at the old Temple of Zeus and their struggle with the orthodox
Christianity insistence of their govt. couple of years back...)
About that time, WHAM, Jesus gets struck by lightening. Not that I don't like Jesus, you know...but he's not exactly known for hurling bolts of
lightening... I thought to myself, then told my husband,
Zeus on the Loose
and of course he says "That wasn't Zeus, that was THOR."
And the history channel is INSISTING that primitive man held this belief, in Zeus and the Gods of Olympus, only because they were scared of the forces
of nature, and that now we are SO much smarter, and we have science...
Ok....sure...no one is scared of tornados anymore. If one comes my way, I will show it my science book about weather. No need to be scared...
hey! Maybe it was electrons streaming that struck that Jesus. Maybe science killed Jesus.
