We Are All Atheists

 

We are all atheists with respect to Zeus and Thor. (Sam Harris)

And with respect as well to Odin, Hercules, Atlas, Hera, Ares, Mars, Eros, Jupiter, Baldur, Apollo, Hades, Venus, Bacchus, Tiamat, Ishtar, Diana, Marduk, Osiris, Anubis, Ra, Isis, Waukheon, Wakan-Tanka, Cupid, Quetzalcoatl, Aphrodite, etc., etc.

So the question becomes … why is it different when it comes to Yahweh, the god of the Jews?

  1. I’m an atheist to all the gods, but I like to pretend that I worship Persephone, the Greek goddess of the underworld. She’s my favorite. So when something shocks me I say, “OMP” (Oh my Persephone!) 🙂

  2. Hello all. I just wondered if a few rather off the cuff comments would help the conversation? First I have to admit if THOR was the guy in the movies, and I do mean in every way.. I would be ok with worshiping him. I would have a total jealous hate for his female girlfriend but boy would I like to handle his hammer… 🙂 ok onto my last point…and this may be sadder than my first, I am not sure. I have friends in the Wiccan community that believe in moon goddesses, and other goddesses. Now I don’t mind believing in Pixies as the tiny little beasts tend to appropriate ( steal for a time ) every small and sometimes shiny thing I am currently looking for that is not where I remember it. I even believe in dragons.. mostly because I see them and strange but when these friends are with me, they see and feel them also, but never seem to when they are not with me ??? very discerning dragons I know. But I really can not wrap my mind around the moon goddess thing ? It is not the fact that all my pagan friends have female gods. Heck I have known and still do know females that can put a world ( this one and the next ) hurt on this little boy man! No my thing is why do we need to make a moon a goddess? Who decided this? When and why, and mostly why was I not consulted as I think I could have come up with a much better outfit and awesome name. Oh I did see a moon once I did worship and I married him !! Ok, I have run, I think it is time to go worship the moon .. hehehehehe 🙂 Hugs
