Thor also said he would make sure no ice giants came around.

I don't see any ice giants.

Norse Mythos: 2
Atheists: 0

Thor carries a hammer. Jesus is nailed to a stick.

Any questions?

Norse Mythos: 1
Christianity: 0

All in good fun, y'all understand.

There are good reasons why these primitive religions died out while others continue to grow...

Yes. But not because they were "primitive" in some incompletely fashioned sense. Primitive here just means early. In fact, the Norse gods have a serious (and sometimes not so serious) following now.

As for Christianity, it's growing in some places and dying out in others. And in the places like Africa where it's growing, it's often mutating so much that it might as well be called something else.

How are these religions qualitatively different from any others?

Which reminds me of...
Similarities between a politician and a jellyfish:
Both are slimy, spineless creatures which follow the flow, have no problem getting into deep water, and if you're not careful handling them you'll get burned.

Died out?

I personally know at least four Asatru. There are literally hundreds of them in the Chicago area alone.

"...things I have neither seen nor experienced nor heard tell of from anybody else; things, what is more, that do not in fact exist and could not ever exist at all. So my readers must not believe a word I say." -Lucian on his book True History

"...They accept such things on faith alone, without any evidence. So if a fraudulent and cunning person who knows how to take advantage of a situation comes among them, he can make himself rich in a short time." -Lucian critical of early Christians c.166 AD From his book, De Morte Peregrini
