LOL, very clever until you look at the second link that comes up;
You respond to an exposed lie with a diversion?<quoted text> During the early years of Christianity, it needed them.
When we say ... that he, Jesus Christ, our teacher, was crucified and died, and rose again, and ascended into heaven, we propose nothing new from what you believe about those you consider sons of Zeus.
Justin Martyr, First Apology (100165CE)
"We shall seem to utter the doctrine of Plato; and while we say that there will be a burning up of all, we shall seem to utter the doctrine of the Stoics: and while we affirm that the souls of the wicked, being endowed with sensation even after death, are punished, and that those of the good being delivered from punishment spend a blessed existence, we shall seem to say the same things as the poets and philosophers; and while we maintain that men ought not to worship the works of their hands, we say the very things which have been said by the comic poet Menander, and other similar writers, for they have declared that the workman is greater than the work." - Justin Martyr, First Apology.

1. The branch of theology that is concerned with the defense of Christian doctrines
WordWeb Pro 7.02
Christianity needed apologists to defend the belief. A belief, needed defending. There is a reason for that.
Theists believe in mythology, but do not see it as mythology.
Theology and theologians entire purpose is to try and make the supernatural deities appear real, and give religions the appearance of legitimacy. Theologians pour over religious texts, endeavoring to highlight historical aspects and realities within those texts, but the ultimate goal is to try and find the deity. The goal is to find that one bit, no matter how small that they can point to and say:
<frantic theologian>"I have found legitimate and unbiased evidence of a deity! "
That has never happened. Ever.
Theists feel theology authenticates their mythological beliefs, even though they do not see the belief as being based in myth.
They look to the theologian or at the least, someone who has their approval, as having some special authority or power to substantiate the belief. The theologian sets about to massage any portion of possible prophetic fulfillment no matter how small out from those mystical and mythic ramblings of ancient man.
They've done no more than practice what equates to, "Mytheology".
"Mytheology" ~ The in depth study by theologians of supernatural deities and supernatural elements within mythology, believed by theologians and theists to be reality, and able to be proven, but never succeeding in doing so.
I understand that you're within the myth and believe in it as a reality.
So did the believers in Zeus.
You need to apologize.
