Who would you most likely invest your faith in, Jesus or Thor?

Jesus

Side Score: 16
VS.

Thor

Side Score: 27
1 point

I want some fish and wine and to go to Heaven. Thor would just smash stuff, which is kinda cool, but not as cool as multiplying fish.

Side: Jesus

Although I agree with you that fish swim in schools, I don't think they are taught how to multiply ;)

Side: Jesus

But I hear Valhalla is much nicer especially for warrior types.

Side: Thor

I heard this one passage from the Viking afterlife book or something like that and it said something like: "Oh that was a good move how you cut my head off today, but I'll have some tricks for you tomorrow."

Well I ain't from the Germanic tribes, so I'll stick to religion rather than mythology.

Then why are you one Jesus's side if you don't want to follow mythology?

Side: Thor

I'm guessing its because there is a difference between religion and mythology

Mythology:A collection of myths, esp. one belonging to a particular religious or cultural tradition.

Religion:The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.

There are similarities, but they are in fact different.

Jesus died for my sin. I have to go with the Man. :)

But Thor died to prevent a giant serpent from destroying the world.

But Jesus created the world, and took on the conservatives, liberals, and the Roman Empire. That is so much more cool than Thor would ever be. :D

Side: Jesus

Thor is definitely cooler, and he has a hammer: and is probably the inspiration behind eragon's roran and wheel of time's perrin.

Side: Thor

But wouldn't Jesus be more practical at a party? I mean..., He could feed a whole bunch of people with just one fish ;)

Side: Thor

He can turn water to wine as well ; )

The muscleman wins.

Christianity:

The belief that some zombie can grant them salvation by drinking it's blood and eating it's flesh and pledging their name to him.

Perfect.

Completely overly simplistic interpretation of the mericles of reserection and assention. As well as a clear miss explanation of a sacrid religious practice. And a clear demonization of vesting ones faith in a higher power which people have every right to do if they so chose. Laides and gentlemen I give you the atheist champion dushebag of the earth

Side: Jesus

You have to admit, that image makes a strong point. Wait..., I'm going to get hell for this..., ain't I ;)

I like to think god has a seance of humor. But some prayers couldn't hurt.

Side: Jesus

Jesus couldn't even lift a speck of dust (every picture of that hippy is that of a lanky dude; no muscles at all), never mind a hammer.

Side: Thor

Maybe, but He was the first to do that "flipping tables" meme ;)

Jesus was the son of a carpenter (expert in using tools)....

Side: Jesus

Do you think He ever made any carpenter jokes like, "Mary Magdalene is a carpenter's dream..., flat as a board and easy to nail ;)"

Side: Jesus

There is no proof of Jesus's existence. Nor is there proof of Thor. Thor is more interesting in my own humble opinion, and Thor is also more original (look up Mithra, if you don't believe me, or Dionysus)

Side: Thor

But wouldn't Jesus be more practical at party? I mean..., you would never have to buy wine ever again :)

Side: Thor

There is historical proof of the existence of Jesus. Perhaps not the miracles he did, but he was indeed a living person.

Indeed, there was probably a man named Jesus, possibly even a preacher. It was actually a fairly common name at the time.

Also, there would be no need to look up Mithra, who originated from Mitra, and was a Persian Deity, which was existing in a different time since Norse mythology was created by the Germanic tribes, which existed from c. 1700 BC to c. 500 BC. Also, Thor is the God of Thunder. Mithra is associated with the Sun, and original Persian God of War (which ended up creating Verethragna, Persian God of Victory). Of course, after Verethragna, he was no longer in that position.

Side: Jesus
HiNRa(15) Disputed

The reason I said to look up Mithra was that the story of Jesus follows an uncanny resemblance to that of Mithra.

Side: Thor

Yeah well Jesus doesn't exist. So I guess that makes us even doesn't it?

Side: Thor

GASP!!!! Blasphemy ;)

Side: Thor

I love Norse mythology, it seemed so much more interesting from what I read, like literally superheroes of their time. There was good guys, bad guys, neutral guys, everyone had a back story, they alm had different abilities. I sometimes wonder if superheroes will in a sense replace old mythology. The stories of christianity... Are strange... Like the twighlight zones. Somewhat nonsensical to me.
