CPAN a myth?
Polytheism is essentially tolerant where monotheism is essentially intolerant. While some polytheists behave abominably toward others as a matter of faith (the Aztecs come to mind), most, like the Greeks and Romans, were able to deal with divergent opinions about the gods. This is not to say that they did not behave abominably to others for other reasons, like greed, lust for land, or sheer madness, but only that they tended not to do so on the grounds of heresy.

cup Perhaps I'm misreading you, but it seems you're starting with a presumption that CPAN is true (or put another way, treating it as a definition rather than an assertion), then using that to determine what does or does not constitute a negative statement. That wouldn't bother me so much if it didn't lead to what seems to me an extraordinarily strange definition of "negative". It's a bit like treating the assertion "God exists" as an axiom, then defining God
