Message From A Hellenic Nationalist Comrade On Another Western Article On Neo-Paganism

Here follows yet another news article regarding neo-paganism in Greece, this time from the Guardian. It seems the Westerners are hell-bent on giving the neo-pagan buffoons publicity while simultaneously defaming Orthodoxy by giving an air of legitimacy to the neo-pagans' claims, which they publish in length. That a group of approximately 1,000 individuals have received so much sustained publicity from so many Western media outlets clearly indicates that the West has an anti-Orthodox agenda.

By Zeus!

After a break of 16 centuries, Greek pagans are worshipping the ancient gods again - despite furious opposition from the Orthodox church. Helena Smith asks them why they're so keen to revive the old religion

12 god beleivers are clowns.

I'm about to give you a link to the ''South Melbourne Hellas'' soccer club forum.

In the general talk section, there's a topic about the phoney discovery of phoney Jesus tomb, but it descends into a Christianity vs. 12 Gods arguement.

anyone there, H.N., Hellenian or whoever, feel free, to sign up to the forum, and bag the 12 God clowns.
PS. You have to sign up to the forum to be able to view it and post.

I've had a lot of experience in debating Neo-Pagans and I long ago learned an important lesson: no matter how much you refute their claims, they will never accept what you say as true. In fact, they'll continue to use the same arguments again and again, even though you already refuted those same points using objective sources. That's why, as a general rule, I don't enter into debates with them anymore; it's a major waste of time. In the rare instances that I do, it is not for their benefit (since they refuse to accept facts) but rather for the benefit of third parties that may be following (but not participating in) the discussion.

I've debated a number of Neo-Pagans and/or Neo-Pagan sympathizers on this very weblog so, if you want, you can check out some of the commentaries of the older entries. But, basically, if you want to refute Neo-Pagan claims, all you have to do is study ancient Greek history and philosophy (especially Socrates and Plato as their values are extremely similar to Orthodox Christian values), Eastern Roman (so-called "Byzantine") history, and Orthodox theology. There are also books that deal specifically on this subject. A good one is "Neopaganismos: i apeili apo to parelthon". Other than that, there are Orthodox Christian websites (both in Greek and in English) that tackle Neo-Pagan claims.
