Two books I picked up from the Goodwill where I work. The one on the left was printed in 1711 and is a collection of Pliny the Younger’s letters. The one on the right was printed in 1771 and is a school book about Greek Mythology. [4032 x 3024]
Contrary to what science says, the Greek Orthodox Church insists it is impossible for any disease — including the coronavirus — to be transmitted through Communion. The priest uses the same spoon to administer communion to the entire congregation. apnews.com/42165e482f3fbb…
Why do we call Roman/Greek/Norse religions “mythology” but call modern religions “religions”? Aren’t they both just religions? Don’t we have as much proof that the Roman religion is as correct as Catholicism?
Just for context: I’m not against religion and I’m not a “Reddit Atheist”, I’m just curious.

[WP] On the run from mercenaries, a young girl stumbles into an old Greek temple and in a last ditch effort to save herself, begs for help from whichever god or goddess it belongs to. She didn't expect them to show up in person.
Exactly two years ago, an agreement was reached between Greek and Macedonian prime ministers, known as Prespa agreement, under which the country would be renamed the "Republic of North Macedonia“, settling a 27-year-long name dispute.

FoxNext's Biggest Blunder: Players Getting Free 7* Greek Raid Characters
Edit: It appears this has only happened with Alpha characters
I'd like to preface this post by saying this hasn't happened to me, but to a fellow player who posted on the Marvel Strike Force Players Facebook Group, who has agreed to let me post it here so that the Devs can see what they've done.
When the Alpha orbs were changed, some players lost their unopened orbs. As compensation, Foxnext has apparently given them shards for the characters that they would have potentially received. This is clearly bugged, as it has given these shards a seemingly unlimited number of times, resulting in people receiving THOUSANDS of shards for a bunch of characters FOR FREE.

(Spoilers Published) Jaime and Cersei being Targaryens is perfectly paralleled to a Greek tragedy.
I have been reading the ASOIAF books a second time. A passage in Jaime - Chapter 33 in AFFC caught my attention. While most of the theories focus on Tyrion being a Targaryen, and how he is the third head of the dragon etc. I think there is more reason to think that Jaime and Cersei are Aerys' kids. (It never crossed my mind Tyrion being a Targaryen, until YouTube started to recommend me the same theory over and over again.) The A+J = C+J is not a new theory of course, but it makes more sense for Tywin's actions.
Anyways, this is my first time posting here so I left a small note to present my opinion at the end.
When Jaime speaks to her aunt Genna, the last paragraph ends with: *"Jaime, sweetling, I have known you since you were a babe at Joanna's breast. You smile like Gerion and fight like Tyg and there's some of Kevan in you, else you would not wea

Shit I’ve learned recently: Greek mythology was fabulously gay

mythology that isn't roman, Greek, or Norse
i want to read a novel that deals with mythology. like the Percy Jackson series or other similar novels. but i want the mythology that the book is based on to not be the same ones we always see.
Non Greeks what is the first thing that comes in mind when you think of Greece?
I used to think so, too. Turns out too much of a good thing is still too much. I got fat on avocado whole wheat toast, goat cheese and Greek yogurt.
Do not write in greeks channel bajs, greek and some of his mods are permabanning people in multiple channels they moderate heads up
I am a mod in greeks channel and I can see who is banned. I also am friends with mods in sodas channel and nicks channel those same people have been perma banned in sodas channel, for minor ass infractions in greeks channel ( saying things like get your ego in check OMEGALUL, snowflake andy and things like that).
Another thing I am suspecting that may be happening is people who are mods in greeks channel who are mods somewhere else are also permabanning people in those channels as well (so it is not exclusive to greek soda nick rajj etc people he named today in the pool), I know this because as my name is evident I have seen some of the same people, some of which haven’t spoken in forsen’s chat in weeks, getting perma banned from forsen’s chat meaning people who are mods in greeks chat who are mods in like 10 other channels are also perma banning those people in the 10 channels. Not all of the mods, but it seems to be the majority of them.
I give you guys a heads up to stay away or

Any interest in a "Visual Guide to the Greeks"?
I get the impression a lot of people have a hard time understanding what the greeks are and what they mean. I definitely had that problem when I was reading about them years ago (still do, somewhat). But what really helped was making graphs and charts of different things and pointing to lines/dots and saying "There, right there, that's delta."
It's like describing the Mona Lisa in words vs. just looking at the painting yourself. Much simpler.
If there's interest in a pictorial representation of delta, theta, and the family, I'll make the "gallery of greeks."
Edit: Here it is.
Hey! I made another rendition of the greek redditor, I hope you guys like it and feel free to use it however you want
ANALYSIS: The translation of the text in the new teaser translates literally to "To Darken" and "Darkseid." The context of the first word is for God's light to be obscured. In Greek, word order doesn't matter - therefore this translates into "Darkseid Obscures God's Light."

Realistically this semester could kill off Greek life at a lot of schools
I’m the social chair of my fraternity & if we can’t have social events this semester everyone is going to deactivate. No annex payments, no house payments, no due payments, no nothing. We have a 28 room house and to keep up with payments on it the only choice we will have is to throw underground events to keep people active.
I get from a liability perspective the university has to cancel social events, but wouldn’t it be a lot better to enforce stricter guidelines at events rather than to have every fraternity having underground events essentially with no rules?
Our university also only allows Freshmen to rush in the spring and recruitment pretty much relies on those first semester parties for brand exposure. All in all, this shit is fucked.

Why do depictions of humans in the middle ages look like child drawings when Greeks and Romans already knew how to draw (or sculp!) anatomically correct images?
For example in books or stained glass windows, people have big, pointy faces and thin limbs, whereas most Greek/Roman statues or reliefs look very life-like.
