Hellenic Problems #181: Atheists using “No one worships Zeus anymore!” as evidence that theism is silly and wrong.
(submitted by Anon)

This actually happened right in front of me once, and I immediately responded, “Yes, they do!”  The guy in question goes “…. what?”  And I just shrugged and said “Hellenic polytheism.  It’s a thing.”  He was thrown off so badly he abandoned the conversation entirely without asking more questions.  I actually really like the atheists I’m friends with even when they go off on anti-religious tears, but I dislike blatant falsehoods being used to prop up someone’s philosophy.
