The Martyrdom of Polycarp

In the olden days, before people worshiped Science, they used to worship God. They took it seriously, too. They took God just as verbatim as we do Science. But, before they worshiped God, they worshiped gods. They didn't take them all that literally, though. Ironically, it wasn't at all hard to get along with other people's gods if you had plenty of your own. You had yours and he had his and both of you had bunches and what's the big deal. A lot of yours and his were probably alike anyway. The trouble started when people came along who insisted there was only one God. And took it seriously. People got themselves burnt at the stake over that kind of stuff. Like Polycarp.
