You can stay for a bit, but you should know we worship Neptune in this house.

Grapes, we worship grapes, and here we turn it into red wine

Robert, Neptune is just the Romanized Poseidon.

Rev 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

"Robert, Neptune is just the Romanized Poseidon."

Blasphemer ! It says right here in the dead sea scrolls....

Book of Coral 11:23 "And Neptune created the coral and lobsters and saw it was good. And any sea creature that worships old fake god Poseidon or voted for George Bush shall be cast ashore to wither".

Now come on Robert, you know as well as I do that the 12th ecumenical council held in Ocean City, New Jersey, has declared that the Book of Coral is not canonical, and this was reaffirmed by the 13th ecumenical council held in the Tidewater.

I am here not to make you fishers of men but fishers of fish. I love fish so much. I really love the story in my “special book” about the miracle of the fishes and the fishes. Here is a list of many of the water gods you are atheists about. So let’s all flap hands together ask Poseidon to solve this ecumenical matter.

On the less populated islands in Greece, where most of the community are fishermen and priests, the fishermen pay lip service to the god of the priests, whilst covertly praying to Poseidon for the fish to come their way.  If you have the 'mark of Poseidon's Trident' on you, they all want to drag you into their boats for good luck.  Three moles in an equidistant pattern on you is considered sufficient.

I have three tiny moles in a row on my left upper am, and this is perceived to be lucky in this regard - being taken fishing can be fun, but you have to get under way by around 4am, which has its drawbacks.  If you question this superstition, you are considered an imbecile. 

The more chance has an effect on your success, the more superstition will flourish.  In some ways this is like a microcosmic version of how religion took hold, all those years ago.
