I am so damn tired of people describing our Gods and Goddesses as " mythological characters ", as if they all belong in some damn comic book. Why is their God a real deity that exists, and is accepted, but our Gods are just some damn fairy tale to these people ! Unacceptable !
And I know that some will argue that one of the meanings of ' Mythology ' is " A telling of tales and legends ", but I have never heard the bible described as a mythological book. To use one of their terms it is believed to be " The God' s honest truth ! "
To press my point about them saying our Gods are Mythological, but their biblical God is real, I found this quote :
" Unlike mythology, the Bible has a historical framework. Its characters are real people living in verifiable locations during historical events. "
- S. Michael Houdmann
I am sorry, but I have read the Eddas and the Sagas, Mr. Houdmann, and there are many, many, " real people living in verifiable locations, during historical events !"
I am tired of the blasphemy that these people, especially scholars who write these books, pass on from one generation to the next. Just because they do not believe, or have faith in our Gods, does not give them the right to belittle the FACT that hundreds of thousands of our folk have faith in Gods we hold to be Tru to us !
