Thunderbolts, love affairs, Hercules, and hydras versus Frost Giants, the Midgard Serpent, Thor, and a giant cow.

Norse for me.
In blood, he's writing the lyrics of a brand new tune.

I quite enjoy both, although I have to admit that my introduction to Norse mythology was via Marvel Comics' Journey Into Mystery/Thor series.  
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

Being a Norwegian I may seem like a traitor but I find Greek mythology to be richer, and I think it says more about human nature than Norse mythology.
He say nothing is quite what it seems;
I say nothing is nothing

I prefer the Icelandic Eddas and Sagas over the Greek epics and tragedies.

Jesus promised to end sin
Thor promised to banish the ice giants.

I don't see any ice giants.

Caio had something similar to this in his sig a while ago, except it used atheism as the butt of the joke instead of Christians.  They're both really funny.

  a little bit out of context (Christianity having to do nothing with Greek mythology), but I give you credit as it is indeed funny LOLLOLLOL.
I won't vote as I am not very familiar with the Norse mythology (being Greek my vote would be biased).
I find mythology to be really inspiring for young people (better than modern age TV rubbish...) - kids should be taught more about these things...
