      In general terms, I’ve read more often than not, that pagan gods, generally, were mythicallized ancestor, would love a confirmation tho.

            Christians claimed that pagans mythicized their ancestors, mainly Wotan, hence the reason Anglo Saxons are descended from him. That wasn’t the case as the sky father archetype is present in all IE religions.

      >There is overwhelming evidence that the ancient Greeks not only definitely climbed Mount Olympos, but that, at least in late antiquity, this was a relatively common occurrence and that people even sometimes offered sacrifices to the gods up there.

      >Certainly, some people in ancient Greece did indeed believe that the gods literally lived atop Mount Olympos in ornate palaces, eating ambrosia and drinking nektar just like they are described as doing in the Homeric epics, but the ones who were actually climbing Mount Olympos evidently did not believe this. It is likely that many of them thought of Mount Olympos as more of a metaphorical home for the gods, rather than their actual, literal abode.

      If Christians disrespected the pantheon this much, then they would not:
      >Read Homer’s Oddysey
      >Watch the movies about the heros fighting Medusa
      >Play videogames about the Greeks and Romans myths
      >Even trust people who make this stuff so greatly to vulnerably make themselves open for attack

      I trusted far too many pantheon poopyholes who stabbed us in the back to have some dipshit come up and make threads like this. God’s vengeance be upon them.

      We would NEVER even read things like Chronicles of Narnia, or Lord of the Rings. Star Wars, or even play Japanese made video games. We would just hate everything and seethe. It never happened. It time to Repent of your Returning Madness, China. In passing, that’s an Alice reference.

        You respected them so much you defaced their statues, murdered their priests, ended their many thousand year traditions and repurposed to honor a semitic demon. The only consolation for all this is that Christianity is undergoing the early stages of something similar now at the hands of atheistic leftists.

          Nah, never known such disrespect, you aren’t even within the same American frame of thought. You need to put yourself in McDonalds And just eat the hamburgers for a while, we grew up on classical education, so that included the Greek classics some. It’s all forced of course. Extra reading about Zeus would be entirely extra curricular just for something extra to do. Or curiosity.

          The people you are talking about are likely Catholics, who killed everyone, including Christians for thousands of years.

          Nothing personal really. We did the same to heretical Christians. It’s just a matter of caring deeply about what you believe and seeing it as being right because it’s the truth. Post-modernists like you wouldn’t understand such a mentality since you don’t believe in universal truths.

                You don’t pray to obtain gifts, but to honor the immortal Gods and build up a spiritual connection with them by entering in communion with the divine through offerings and prayers.

      I’m really sick of it so I’ll just explain it once to the people who aren’t very smart.
      A lot of people think the "Bible" was written by one guy in the middle ages. I assume that’s what people think woke af on how they talk about it. See you have to understand something when you try to make fun of Adam and Eve you must understand the story of Adam and Eve is a VERY old story passed down generations. Most histories begin with the flood, Pre-flood stories are extremely rare and they are extremely weird and archaic which makes sense.
      At some point humans realised they are not like other animals in fact they are very very different and the answer to this is Adam and Eve which explains in such a concise perfect way humanity. From a thing like why we wear clothes to knowing good and evil, female human pain in childbirth and working the fields, very specific things and why humans are different than animals.
      Going on about your "uuhhh talking snake" I’m sorry but you’ve completely missed the point. You can try to explain that the snake is Satan or that humans and snakes talking before the apples represents that humans were still animals at the time that’s all great but it’s very strange that people miss the entire point of Adam and Eve and get caught up with a talking snake after God created the entire world.

      Disgusting disgusting people denigrate humanity and all its done and its beauty like the story of Adam and Eve.

        The story of genesis does not just describe humanity, but also prescribes and moralises at humanity, and that latter part is the problem. Adam and eve do not merely eat from the tree of knowledge, but they are evil for eating from the tree of knowledge. Contrast that with the tree of prometheus, where the theft of fire, the equivalent of the biblical apple, is celebrated or otherwise seen in a positive light. There are many origin stories for humanity, and even a science, anthropology, explaining why we wear clothes and so on. What the christian narrative does is shame humanity for simply exercising their freedom and pursuing knowledge. That is why it should not be treated as anything other than a historical curiosity.

      LARPing as an aryan. The Old Testament is about conceiving of the highest good you can possibly imagine and then striving for it. All this cuck has is his “pedigree” and Marvel Avengers (TM) characters to worship FOR NO GOOD REASON.

        The highest good of the Old Testament is brainless submission, shame and guilt. It’s no wonder that all of their neighbors though the garden gnomes were a wretched race that hated life. Christianity is even worse. Any actual spiritual pursuit is Gnostic heresy.

          I can tell that you never actually reand the OT? The books of the Prophets are filled with people questioning God to his very face, and the books of Wisdom are filled with exhortations to live a joyful life.

          >It’s no wonder that all of their neighbors though the garden gnomes were a wretched race that hated life.
          Again, you never actually read the OT have you? The garden gnomes were pagans (your supposed religion) for most of their history.

          >Christianity is even worse. Any actual spiritual pursuit is Gnostic heresy.
          HAHAHAHAHAHA, scrote the Gnostics were literally the ultimate life-denying, servile, guilt-filled religion. They counted themselves sinners for no other reason than having a body.

            >he books of the Prophets are filled with people questioning God to his very face
            Asking "when will you help me?" is not questioning the sovereignty of the demon. The purpose of most of the prophets was to urge the garden gnomes to not disobey YHVH so as to avoid the calamitous prophecy. Submit or suffer. How can you twist something so simple into the opposite?
            >>The garden gnomes were pagans (your supposed religion) for most of their history
            They stopped being pagan long before the criticisms of their abhorrent nature were made. They were thoroughly monotheistic by the Hellenic period. Their pagan neighbors didn’t insult them for their non-existent pagan ways, irredeemable christscrote.
            >the Gnostics
            Gnostics had a pursuit of spiritual reality woke af on experience rather than blind obedience to an obviously human text. They sought truth (decide for yourself whether they had a glimpse of it), meanwhile Christians are happy to believe obvious lies.

              That’s not what Abraham did when he tried barganing over Sodom. That’s not what Jeremiah did when he accused God of decieving him. That’s certainly not what Job did – FFS Job literally insulted God multiple times and got declared a prophet and saint.

              >They stopped being pagan long before the criticisms of their abhorrent nature were made.
              1) what is the Babylonian Exile
              2) 2nd temple Judaism wasn’t fully repentant. The reason the Hellenes hated the garden gnomes was because the garden gnomes believed they were superior chosenites – which is something (contrary to pagascrote polemic) YHWH repeatedly chastises them for in the OT.

              >Gnostics had a pursuit of spiritual reality woke af on experience rather than blind obedience to an obviously human text
              1) the proto-Orthodox Christians informed their faith from experience, too
              2) The Gnostics informed their faith through their own interpritations of said "obviously human" texts. The Gnostics quote mined Paul frequently, for instance.

      Can someone explain why Americans chop up their dicks? My Uni religions professor says that’s a gnomish ritual. Actually reading about all this Christianity stuff as an adult is quite baffling.

        One of the siss who created Kellogg’s was obsessed with health and (his) religion and things like that, had health centers and had lots of money. Some (most?) of his ideas were insane, such as doing yogurt enemas, living as a celibate which included eating insipid food you must munch a lot to reduce libido as much as possible, weird shit with the sun, and circumcision to treat "compulsory masturbation", which is synonymous with your average fapping. Not even kidding, he did it to himself at 37 and without anaesthetics, in order to traumatize males into not touching their own dicks without remembering that one time they got diced, and there wouldn’t be any reason after that as the glans would no longer feel any sensation.
        He seems to have influenced a lot of people over his lifetime, when health quackery and ignorance about almost anything was rampant, summed with implementing scrotebrained practices for basically anything.

        Christians strawman 1000x more often, it’s only fair.

            Yeah, nah. Pointing out contradictions and deficiencies in the line of reasoning is not a strawman.

              Look at

              […]

              and if you don’t think that’s a strawman then you’re in no position to talk about strawmen.

              >Most Christians for 2,000 years believed the "talking snake" was a fallen angel, not a metaphor for a fallen angel, but an actual fallen angel.
              >Christians can hardly agree on how old the earth is. "6000 years" the closest thing to a non-strawman point and it only accounts for what some people believe.
              >The "talking bushes", according to a basic surface-level reading of the text, is God speaking through a fire – again not a metaphor, but literally just reading the text as it is.

                Christians disagree on LITERALLY everything because of the contradictions and deficiencies in how they interpret their own scripture. "Some" indeed have argued that the snake is a metaphor for whatever, keyword: some proves my point here that they’re disagreeing on this specific thing.
                Then you’ve got scrotebrained creationists and people that deal with them telling them to not take the whole book as literally true. Same thing applies for the burning bush.

                >yeah sis but ackchyually those aren’t metaphors but allegories
                The difference between a metaphor and an allegory is how long the text is.

      I haven’t heard anyone say this.

      "gods" that live on mountains are demons. They’re the ones worshiped in "high places". Enoch tells us that Satan and his fallen angels descended to earth at Mount Hermon. So no, Christianity doesn’t disagree with you. We just don’t call them gods.
