Along with a few thousand others, he (Exsekias Trivoulides)is taking part in the Prometheia festival, which celebrates the ancient Greek hero Prometheus, who helped humans by stealing fire from the gods.
It's the most important annual festival for followers of The Return of the Hellenes — a movement trying to bring back the religion, values, philosophy and way of life of ancient Greece, more than 16 centuries after it was replaced by Christianity.
These people consider Greece to be a country under Christian occupation.
"People want to identify with something in the past — where they came from — so as to know where they are going," Trivoulides said. "If you don't know your past, you don't have a future.
"It's going back to the roots. It makes me feel the continuation through the millennia."
Well I am sure that the Greek Christian community is open minded and understanding enough to respect the idea of others embracing their heritage and returning to the roots of their culture.
In 2007, an official of the Orthodox Church described them as, "a handful of miserable resuscitators of a degenerate dead religion."
Or not. You know that is EXACTLY my opinion of Christianity.
Personally I love the idea of people discarding Christianity in favor of searching for the faith that it trampled beneath its feet, before usurping its festivals, holidays, and traditions and absorbing them like a giant religion gobbling amoeba.
To be honest there is NO more reason to put your faith in the God of Christianity than there was to place it with Athena, or Poseidon, or Aphrodite.
Besides there was a time BEFORE monotheism, when all societies believed in in polytheism. And before that in Animism and Spritism.
And yes that includes the Jews. For those who doubt that fact I suggest you watch this.
(Warning the video can shake the very foundation of a person's faith.)
Remember mythology is only religion that has been cast aside in favor of a shiny new system of faith.
