That's right. You don't believe in Zeus, correct?

Why? Why is Zeus NOT God? Or why is Watonka not god? The answer applies equally to any and all 'gods'. When you understand your answer, you should also understand why it applies to your particular god. Therefore, we are all atheists, I merely believe in one less god than you do.

Get out of the Bronze Age. It was fun while it lasted, but face it, it is OVER.

A working definition of Faith: Belief without proof.

To paraphrase T. Jefferson, whether you believe in many gods or no god, it neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg. Keep it to yourself, and we will get along just fine. Step out of line, and you may find out just how well your god protects you from me.

Peace, bro.
