Quote# 3512

I have a rather unorthodox view of Hercules and the Greek and Roman pantheon, even though I'm a christian. I believe the stories about Hercules are probably based on a real person or group of people. There may have been some 'Fine-tuning' along the way, such as the evolution of the stories about King Arthur, but for the most part, his story is probably based on real events with some added window dressing.

Mighty nice of you to believe what most scholars agree upon, concerning mythical figures.

One more tiny little baby step, and....

What did King Arthur have to do with Greek and Roman mythology? He is a keltic/brittish mythological figure. You are aware that Greek and Roman have two different, but similar mythologies, aren't you? Sort of like Christianity and Islam... OK, a bit more similar, but there is a correlation.

And the stories about Jesus are probably based on a real person or group of persons, a bit of fine-tuning and evolution and Muhammed, and some added window dressing.

And why have you a name from Tolkien?

This doesn't surprise me, especially if this guys an American Christian.

They come in three groups from what I've reckoned from years of FSTDT reading.

The Christian that automatically dismisses all other myths and legends or historical evidence to hold the Bible as the only truth.

The Christian who believes these other stories as influenced by, taken from or actually in the Bible. This group mostly found in the fundamentalist wings as we all know never read the Bible and have confused Jesus with everything from Conan to Rambo.

The Christian that believes every myth, every spiritual claim and every damn hoodoo that comes down the pike as Satan produced or God given. Mostly fundies again as the Bible Belts the largest market for Phychics, Astrologists, Numerologists, Fortune Tellers, Talisman manufacturers, Faith Healers, UFO spotters and alien encounters, Ghost Hunters or any crazy shit you can toss at them.
