My, how chauvinistic we can be about our precious beliefs. It's been that way since time immemorial.

Egyptians believed in and stuck and hung for Horus and a host of companion gods, Greeks for Zeus and his family, Romans for Jupiter, Northern europeans for Thor, Odin, Freia, etc. In Canaan it was El Elyon and his sons, chief of which were Yahweh and Baal, along with the females Ashtoreth and, if I remember correctly, daughter Anath.

All those gods except Yahweh have ended up on the trash heap of history. He's still around and usually called Jehovah today.

If I dare to state that I don't believe in Jehovah and his rape begotten son, Jesus, people in this part of the world usually react with horror and blurt out something like, "What if you're wrong?" It doesn't occur to them that millions of sincere people are just as convinced that Allah is the real god. If you don't, how do you know you're not wrong? Are you wrong to reject Zeus or Thor or the host of Hindu gods millions of others sincerely believe in?

Everybody is an atheist when it comes to all other gods but their own. I just add their god to the list while they don't.
