So you think worshiping Ares is AOK and not strange at all, since you don't think so, Ares requires you to surrender your head as offering to Zeus to show your love of Ares.

No, it is a horror story that Steven King would be proud of.
I disagree, Steven King wouldn't be proud of it theres too many plot holes.

Nope.
You got PROOF of the supernatural yet?
No?
Then he was dead correct.
"Proof" is always subject to value based judgement. In other words, "proof" can be what we want it to be if there is no standard of proof. Now there is plenty of evidence for the supernatural, but with "proof" being a personal value based judgement, it is easy to slide the goal post around so the other side cannot meet the burden of proof. In a forum like this (no moderation, no structure) there can be plenty of evidence, but there will never be proof to the person who doesn't want the issue proven against his predisposed bias.

Evidence of the supernatural are things like Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Gamma Ray bursts from Black Holes and such.
What you suggest is superstitious junk and complete bogus waste of time hog snot. There is no "supernatural" in the essence of your suggestion.

Your 3 BIG Myths:

1) the Big Bang when nothing exploded
and created everything.

2) rain falling on rocks and settling in a mud puddle and spontaneous self generating life sprang forth.

3) plants evolving into plant eating animals.

And when I snap my fingers you will wake up and believe these 3 myths as if they were fact.

I see your hate is showing once more. Your deliberate miss spelling of my name, for starters.

Your Jewus commanded you to LOVE your enemies.

Yet all you show us is HATE.

Why?

False.

Proof would be true REGARDLESS OF WHO OBSERVED IT.

That is what would be proof-- unbiased, objectivism.

Do you have ANY of that?

No?

We thought as much....

.. but your HATE is certainly evident.

Doubtful. You do not exhibit the behaviors of an acutal man.

More likely, based on your behavior, is that you are about 2 years old...

This from the Guardian UK

Whenever the US Congress and Senate are officially in session, the daily activities commence with someone saying a prayer. The same ritual occurs in many state and local governments throughout America: a prayer, the pledge of allegiance to the flag and then the business of the day.
To get a feel for what these prayers are like, consider this one that opened the US House of Representatives session on Friday:
"God our Father, we give You thanks for giving us another day. Bless the Members of the people's House as they gather at the end of another week in the Capitol. Endow each with the graces needed to attend to the issues of the day with wisdom, that the results of their efforts might benefit the citizens of our Nation and the world.
"On this Flag Day, may we be reminded of the greatness of the democratic experiment that is the Republic of the United States and diligent in our responsibilities as citizens to guarantee the freedoms enumerated in the Constitution for all who claim this country as their home.
"We also ask Your blessing leading into this weekend upon fathers throughout our country. May they be their best selves, and may their children appreciate fully the blessing their fathers have been to them. May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory. Amen."
This was said by the House's resident chaplain, a Roman Catholic priest. He gives many of the prayers, although "guest chaplains" from other faith backgrounds are also invited throughout the year.
In an increasingly diverse nation, people are rightly asking if these prayers still have a place. The simplistic answer is to demand complete separation of church and state and advocate for the end of these prayers. But they are a tradition that has been in place since the initial meeting of the Continental Congress in 1774 (and even earlier in some state sessions).
