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.
