LOL! Of course!

A brief history of religion on planet Earth:

"My imaginary friend is the REAL imaginary friend, not the one you worship!"

Yep. As a lot of atheists say, "Everyone is an atheist toward most of the gods ever thought of -- we just go one god further."

Interestingly, there are a handful of people who still worship the Norse gods; unfortunately, from what I've heard, a lot of them are white supremacists. I also find it interesting that quite a few days of the week are named after them: something I always think of whenever I hear a fundamentalist fulminating about something that has pagan roots (because that's obviously a sign it was originally intended to glorify Satan!).

I've often reflected myself how funny it is that most people seem to have no problem being atheists when it comes to other people's gods. How many people nowadays worry about Zeus striking them down with a thunderbolt because they don't believe in him any more, for example, or feel the need to placate Poseidon with a sacrifice before taking a boat out to sea?

I've heard of that. The thing is, if you worship a figure from Norse mythology and hate blacks, everyone knows you're a nutcase, but if you worship a figure from Israelite mythology and hate gays, that's respectable. Though maybe not for much longer.

The irony is that almost everything in Christianity can be traced back to something pagan. If you took away every Christian concept that has pagan roots, there'd be nothing left.
