It's possible that people who have been called by "lost gods" will simply have to write their own records of Them - I wonder sometimes if that's not part of the point. *shrug*

I think that some day, it will come to that. I'll gladly welcome it too. It will involve chaos, upheaval, a new wave of fluffy bunnyism ("this is what Zeus/Apollo/Odin/Aset told me! this is the One True Way!") and pain to those with common sense going, "I can't believe they let that person write a book on this...". We're a long ways off, though. I've noticed lately that the fluffy bunnyism is dying out, and that recons and recon-oriented views are becoming more accepted and viewed as factual, not as stuck up elitists. I think the path of when modern worshippers will begin to write again, whether they are ones that we know of, of modern gods, or ones that were lost in the pages of time, will follow the same path. Its already evident, especially with those who write (modern hymn books, websites). It hasn't really hit "mainstream" yet.. but it will.

And hoo-eey, the mess it'll make. ... I'm still trying to remain optimistic. Grin
