Very well said.
Truth is not relative, subjective, or determined by mere belief or opinion. However, the point I was making when the question was posed, comparing Greek Mythology to Christianity (who is to say which is true?)... is, that Christianity has withstood the test of time and thousands of years of intense scrutiny. That's the difference.
I'm not claiming that because that difference exists, therefore Christianity is necessarily true. I'm only saying there is a difference between many of the old Pagan belief systems and Christianity.
I think it's just downright silly for my Pagan brother to kneel before his altar and pray to Pan, or, some God of the Eastern Winds, etc. The reason I and most people think he is silly can be explained by simple observation. His prayers for prosperity and such, to these silly Pagan gods and goddesses, get him nowhere. He's still just as miserable, depressed, and broke as he was 40 years ago when he took up Paganism and Wicca.
