It is odd that many atheists seem to have such an emotional investment in what they term as a mythical being.
Why invest so much energy in battle with people you think foolish for believing in a mythical being. Unless a person is trying to evangelize you why discuss God at all. I certainly do not spend time discussing or thinking of the existence of Zeus.
Speaking of evangelism; why the evangelistic fervor for so many atheist? Why does it bother them so much for another person to believe in God?
A TRUE “atheist” wouldn’t care.
Your example of “Zeus” is a very good one.
And even if there were a segment of the population who insisted upon worshiping Zeus and believing upon him for their salvation, I would probably share my Faith with them in love, but not be ‘offended” by their persistence in their “Zeusianity”. It is, after all, a free country...so far.
Of course, if Zeusianity became the State Religion, and if I were forbidden to practice MINE, there WOULD be a problem.
Whichs brings a question.
Would Biggs be offended if his boson were dubbed “The Zeus Particle”?
