Er, no. That's how I normally respond to things. >_>

C'mon, I'm gonna be the host of my own variety show soon. Can't be lackluster now, can I?

But then he would try and Zeus would be like "HA bitch! Try walking on water with holes in your feet." (Bad joke, I know. Don't kill me!)

But Jesus would totally win because he would refuse to fight in the first place.

And Buddha would beat them both because he would prove that they didn't exist. His irrefutable logic would cause them to collapse into little nirvana singularities.

And then Richard Dawkins would just imagine them all away...

Jesus would own Zeus

reason #1 Jesus has more followers.
reason #2 Zeus is placed in the category of Myths lol (besides I like Hades better hehe).

So is Jesus, depending on who you ask. Even though Jesus is a historical person, the resurrection and all that is arguably myth. And it's not the only myth with sacrificial death, virgin birth, incarnation, and resurrection either. Zeus saw all that in his day. But it doesn't count because it's "pagan."

Not to mention Jesus still retains omnipotence, omnisicence, and omnipresence. Something Zeus hasn't shown.

I mean, Zeus has to have HELP managing the universe. I mean, come on.

It depends on what manifestation of Jesus we're talking about. The Jesus of his earthly ministry had given up omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence to walk with humans and die with humans. Jesus as the Logos, the divine Word, did have those things; but then in that role he's more of an abstract concept than a deity.
