there's a plethora of Greek religious books written as well. Why are they brushed off as fables, yet the current religion has the exact same premise and is taken as truth?
Mary had a virgin birth to Jesus and there's a religious book tied to the faith.
At one time the Greek, as well as other Gods of various cultures, were worshipped and it WAS the religion of the time. They had faith that those stories and Gods were real. The God of the Bible and the stories, characters and some of the events are exactly the same- they are nothing more than myths that are in 'vogue' right now and considered true and real. One day, perhaps, they will be replaced and then will also be considered just myths. I tend to think however that mankind, because of technological and scientific advances, might not even need Gods or myths in the future and instead of a new belief system replacing the old one, the need and desire for it for simply fade away- it will be a new 'enlightened' age.

You can if you want to. I choose to worship God and follow the teachings of Jesus because I believe they are different from what came before. Most Pagan beliefs centered around understanding how the natural world worked and giving explanation to natural events, like the sun rising every morning. Also in Paganism of the past there was a divide between us and the gods. Jesus taught about inner spiritual connections that had nothing to do with the natural phenomena of the planet but of inner peace and joy. He also taught we are part of this creation and are connected to the God on a personal level. That is why I'm a christian but there is nothing stopping you from worshipping Aphrodite if you want to.
