Ninety-eight per cent of the population may officially be Orthodox Christian, but in many ways Greeks remain bonded to their pagan past. "OK, the ancients had hubris, but the concept of sin was totally unknown to them, as indeed it is in modern Greece," Dimou says. "Greeks today don't observe many of the 10 commandments. Their outlook on life and values are much nearer to pagan ideas than those of the austere Judaeo-Christian faith."
This trend of returning to paganism is spreading. Several months ago, there was a thread on Scandinavians worshiping their ancient gods. All of this is simply feeding the growth of Islam.

"Paganism" is not Islam. And Islam is not "Paganism". By the way "Paganism" is good for feeding the growth of Hinduism ;)
