Okay, this might sound like your standard question, but I hope it's a bit different then what you'd see 10-15 times on an MB.
Let's suppose that you were presented with evidence (whatever it would take) that your beliefs were wrong. So you are presented that the Christian God doesn't exist, the Hindu Gods don't exist, etc (atheism will be address further down). You can't argue with this evidence, you can't even believe that it is a trick by Satan (for whatever reason). So this is your new reality - your prior beliefs are wrong.
Couple that with absolutely positive evidence that another belief is correct. Whatever evidence you need, you have. If you are an atheist/agnostic/etc you now have the evidence that Gods exist.
The hitch is, it's not just any Gods.
You have absolute proof that the Gods of the ancient Egyptians exist. So, everything you've known is now thrown away and a bizarre pantheon has replaced it. The world is magical to the prior atheist.
That's the premise:
- Would this depress you?
- How would you deal with this?
- Would you seek to learn everything about ancient egypt and become a high priest?
- How would you deal with your prior religious beliefs? I'm wondering if, say, a Christian would feel bad for throwing out his bible, for instance.
