The Greek philosophers were not really representative of the average Greek as far as beliefs are concerned.

That's true. I guess just objected to the "pagelization" of history... Wink big bad evil monotheism took away the fuzzy warmth of ancient paganism feeling I got from the piece. But like others said, the article is so short, she deserves the benefit of the doubt, because so much is left out.

Like it or not when the average person thing of Christian beliefs, they think of those of Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Franklin Graham, etc. as these voices have been loudly defining what "true Christians must believe" for the past 20+ years. Sad


I know it! And in that regard I don't blame anyone for hating "christianity", just when I see she's a professor I expect more, and so I was disappointed with the piece. But some interesting thoughts in there none the less.
