I Believe in Thor

teachthemhowtothink:

My 7 year old son:  Mom?  Thor is a god, right?

Me:  Right.  In Norse mythology, he was the god of thunder.

My son:  And he was really strong and he could fly and fight and he protected people, right?

Me:  I think so, yes.  I don’t know a lot about Norse mythology, but I think he was  generally a good guy that protected humans.

My son:  And he was huge.  And he had a super powerful hammer that could build OR destroy, right?

Me:  Ha!  Yes.  I think that’s actually a line from the Thor movie, but it’s probably what people believed.

My son:  So how come people don’t believe he’s real anymore?  He is way, WAY more awesome than that Jesus guy.
