This got me wondering, how would neo-pagans frame the evidence for their gods' existences? If someone asked you what evidence convinced you of your god's existence, what would you say? Hopefully it will make more sense.

 
I worship the sea, art, and thunderstorms. We can take a trip to the beach, a museum, or go storm chasing sometime. Granted, I can't prove we don't live in the Matrix, so that's a problem.

Steak's just as tasty even if it's not real.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

Quote from: Castus;150841
Not a pagan anymore, but I'll give it a shot:

What convinced me was getting the shit beat out of me by St John Paul II.
What I would do to convince others is force them to read "Summa Theologica".


I honestly understand that, though it was Mary who beat me up.

Hell hath no fury than an angry Jewish mother.

(although that was when I was in the Eastern Catholic/Orthodox branch, and in Byzantine Christianity, Mary is a queen and mother who freaking demands you respect her; if you give her lip, that's a paddalin' )

What if it tastes like chicken and we have no idea of what chicken tastes like.
Superman is uncircumcised. Change my mind.
