    Yeah, what's the problem? Many preceeding "Gods" were translated into prophets or saints when Christianity was introduced (sometimes forcibly - ex Helios becoming prophet Elias), so I can't see anything wrong if such a process would be reversed.

    If you're going to do that, then just become a pagan. All glory to Zeus!

    That's a very good point...
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    True but I like Nikolaos more than Zeus, Zeus was kind of a typical boring male grandfathery figure after all

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Yeah but Nikolaos likes God more than he likes you. So you have that disconnect.

    But at least John Paul II didn't look like a demon, they should bring him back.
    What an ageist statement. What a grotesque and evil ageist statement.

    Oh... well, I'm sorry then. I thought you were actually trying to improve on the current system, not provide more of the same or worse.

    Change solely for the sake of change isn't progress.
