    Why not Zeus?

    A serious question -

    Can someone give me an objective reason why belief in, say, Zeus (or Ra or Huixtlopochtli for that matter) is less valid than belief in the Christian family of Gods (you know, God and his "son," Jesus)? Or Allah... or Vishnu?

    Not forgetting the greatest paradox of them all - The Invisible Pink Unicorn (May her tiny hooves be thrice blessed.)

    Are the two mutually exclusive?
