Plus both Yahweh and Zeus knocked up human virgins, so they got that going for them too...

Apart from being oldest, Zeus didn't have much claim though. IIRC Poseidon, Hades and Zeus drew lots for which realm they would rule and Zeus got sky. The three were also more or less equal in power. Poseidon isn't really in opposition to Zeus as Satan is to Yahweh either, just doesn't give much of a shit about him.

Greek gods are way cooler than Jewish ones, how come we got stuck with the Jewish one.

Look at the Jewish precursor to Christianity. Satan was ha satan 'the accuser', a member of god's divine counsel and one of his representatives on Earth he used to interact with humans. Just look at the Book of Job.

Plus let's no forget that the god of Christian mythology is a descendant of Yawhists revisionism, that tried to white wash their own books and remove references to El, Baal, and Asherah. Their own supreme being is nothing more than an inflated, petty, regional war deity; and was himself one of the 70 sons of another deity, the aforementioned El.

If you want a book, try Karen Armstong's 'A History of God'. If you want the cliff-note's version, watch these videos.

RE: Why don't you believe in a possible God?
Constantine did a deal with the tiny Christian sect to back him in his civil war with Maxentius culminating at the Milvian bridge. Maxentius was killed. Constantine became emperor and the tiny xian cult benefitted as a result. This cult turned on pagans and then its own various systems. Chaos ensued and has never ended to this day.

The great liar, Eusebius worked under Constantine, is responsible for many of the martyr stories and selling xianity to the public. For example one could convert, get 5 coins and a cloak.

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

RE: Why don't you believe in a possible God?
I don't because what's the point in believing?

I've grown really weary lately of this idea because it really dawned on me how useless the notion of "believing" is because it's based by people on this notion that it matters to a god.

God is an immature, primitive concept; useful for population control and soothing the fears of shallow thinkers. So how da fuq did it get to be our job to devise a new pacifier? I throw that shit out of the crib. Tongue
