Zeus. Is that the geezer who invented the Van der Graaf Generator?

I had one of those but I was too scared to go near it to switch it off. Killed all me houseplants so it did.

True dat.
It's amazing 'science' always seems to 'find' whatever it is funded for, and never the oppsite. Drich.

Zeus was one of those gods who might turn into a swan to rape you. Or a golden shower.

I don't think gods were necessarily a stupid idea when we came up with them, btw. In a time when we didn't know what was happening when we were dreaming, a supernatural side to things must have seemed very real. Who was to say then that what happened to you in your dreams didn't really happen somewhere 'out there'? I think there was a lot of allegorical and symbolic thinking going on that wasn't intended to be taken so literally. I don't have to believe Aesop's Fables are true accounts to get what the moral lesson is supposed to be.
I'm not anti-Christian. I'm anti-stupid.

Peanuts compared to Yahweh's crimes against humanity. AFAIK, Zeus never ordered genocide or rape on a mass scale:

Quote:17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

18 But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves.
Numbers 31:17-18

The Greeks fashioned their gods to resemble themselves. They were not above human foibles. Maybe Zeus was fashioned after their older aristocracy. They would commonly take commoners wives as their own, sometimes for one night, sometimes for a lifetime of servitude. The brutality of the aristocrats often led to the placement of a tyrant (who had their own set of issues), and eventually led to the Greeks getting fed up and implementing democracy.

The resemblance of Zeus to a philandering aristocrat makes me wonder if Yahweh isn't modeled after a brutal ruler of a nomadic desert tribe. Food for thought anyway...

No doubt that Yahweh's temperamental resemblance to a petty Near Eastern potentate's rule via fear and whim is more than coincidental.

I'm sorry that you are able to accurately make such a comparison.

IDK why you threw Zeus in there. Does he particularly bother you in some way? I always thought Zeus was pretty cool.
