Scorn not the Gods: Despite their non-existence in material terms, they're no less potent, no less terrible.
The only place Gods inarguable exist is in our minds where they are real beyond refute, in all their grandeur and monstrosity.
What's Mars but mankind's violent attributes personified? Or Aphrodite, save mankind's desires? The Homeristic sages recognized all Gods as aspects of "The One" yet missed the greater truth.
"The One" is us, each with a pantheon of Gods in our Right Brain, whence inspiration and all instinct springs.
Athena gives us automobiles, Mars our Mahdi uprisings. Is that not plague and miracle enough to sate the God of Exodus?
