    Please share your thoughts. There are many things in the bible that sound like greek mythologies. I will start and you can add to the list.

    A talking walking snake.

    Immaculate conception.

    Angels having sex with women creating nephilim.

    A dove descending upon Jesus after he was babtized.

    The transfiguration.

    Some dude wrestling with an angel all night.

    Jonah being swallowed by a whale and living inside for three days.

    A talking burning bush

    Aaron throwing down his rod and it became a snake

    Striking a rock and having water shoot out

    Three hebrews walking around inside a burning furnace with an angel

    Manna falling from heaven to eat

    People being raised from the dead

    Lots wife turning into a pillar of salt

    A pillar of fire leading the israelites at night

    A star leading the three wisemen at night

    Ok your turn. I am sure I have missed some. Please add if you think of any. How come nothing like this stuff happens today? If it did it would more than likely be blamed on satan and his demon hoards.

    Greek mythology is way better than the babble. Norse is kinda cool too.
