  • Are there any stories of these "gods" being flesh and blood and walking the earth? Healing people and getting rid of evil spirit. raising the dead? Are they any documented eye witness accounts of their existance? Or only poems and epics mythology. Just curious.

  • I'm sure there are, and i know there is a mom on here who follows Thor, and he is an ancient Viking gods (if I am not mistaken). I am currently looking into the Celtic and Druid gods, so the ancient gods have not fallen away as many people believe.

  • You're correct, Ashley. Thor is one of the Norse gods, the god of thunder. Odin being the "head" god. My heritage is Swedish, and I've done a lot of reading about the Norse gods and mythology. I've never met anyone personally the worships/follows Greek, Roman, or Norse Gods, but I know they are out there.

  • The greeks are just not the favorites anymore? Do people in greece still worship them? Is it a nationality thing (you worship the gods from where your anscestry lies?)?

  • Funny, I was just telling my son about how some people believe that Zeus is the god that causes thunder and lightening as well as controls the weather (we were watching a thunderstorm). I may not "believe" in them per say, but I do like to tell their stories at bed time and such because they are just so fantastical and lovely (I hope that didn't sound rude).

  • ptomom.....their books are no more or less "poems and epic mythology" than the bible. You can't prove who wrote or "inspired" either of them.

  • The bible is not poetry they are collected scrolls of biographies. The only poem noted is the Song of Solomon. You can prove who wrote the bible, Every author and book have dates and geneologies.
