I ordered a dictionary of classical Greek (I don't know very much about the grammar, but I know the alphabet well enough to read inscriptions) so I can finally read this book.

As I grow older, it seems to me that antiquity's religion is a far better proxy for reality as we know it than many of the other religious fictions I've encountered. To be sure, I don't believe in the Greek gods, but it seems to me that belief in the Greek gods and all they entailed would be far more conducive to happiness than the alternatives. So label me an atheistic pagan, I supppose.
