How long did people worship Zeus? Was it longer than Christianity's 2000 years?
Most answers say this but they do vary.
Quote; Well, the Greeks seem to have absorbed their pagan religion and pantheon from the Mycenaeans, who in turn may have gotten it from the Minoans, among others in the region. The Minoans were a Bronze Age civilization that flourished from the 27th century BC. Since the Romans took their religion from the Greeks and did not officially adopt Christianity until the early 4th century AD, we are talking about at least 3,000 years.
So about 3000 years, give or take a few hundred years.
How long will people continue to believe that Jesus will one day come riding in a white horse to render judgment on the whole world?
Will another human rise up and take the place of Jesus thus ending his reign as a God or Son of God depending on which Christian religion a person belongs to.
You think perhaps another thousand years or less before people are finally forced to accept reality?
I mean, people can only wait for so long-----a few thousands years perhaps----but not millions of years before they realize-----I guess we were wrong and he's not coming.
