I could tell you all about the Greeks and Romans and the wars but anytime religion comes up I get confused I am not an atheist by any means but I am not a religious fanatic Unlike the Pagans and even our everyday Christians I do not rest my fate in the hands of any god or gods or even goddesses I believe that I control my own fate and I do not go out of my way to please any spiritual being to insure my health and well being I also do not understand the whole concept of fighting between the pagans and the Christians therefore I do not believe that the triumph of Christianity was much of a historical necessity Perhaps it was just the naive attitudes of the polytheistic Pagans or maybe the monotheistic Christians One of the most prominent things to stand out about Pagan religion is the belief in more than one god That is the basis of being pagan Early Greeks dating back to about 1325bc in Athens The people of Athens believed in many gods who each one in their own represented an evolutional part of life The goal of the Greeks was to please the gods living on Mount Olympus in any way that they could Some even went as far as sacrificing their own children Many of the cities in Greek had their own gods proving the polytheistic Paganism to be throughout the civilization For example there was the god of the sea Poseidon The Greeks believed that it was he who controlled the sea and brought smooth sailing to those who deserved and death to those who deceived them Although Pagans worshiped more than one god they were not known to shut out the Christians because even thought the Christians only worshiped one god it was still a god therefore respected them minimally but still managed to persecute Christians for their beliefs
