    It's not so much overlooking as it is refusing to accept something as part of my belief system which shouldn't be.

    I think the typical response would be "Because god wrote it" ? :P

    I don't think the titans were worshipped, but in that theology, they were gods before the new gods came and deposed them (Zeus you dick). And actually weren't the greek gods sons/daughters of the titans?

    They're generally considered a different class of being. Similarly, nobody confuses the giants and elfs and dwarfs of Norse mythology with Thor and his ilk, despite Loki being a half-breed.

    Which raises the weird question of how you go from titan dna --> god dna

    Historically, yes, Jesus was Jewish, and Christianity was considered a sect of Judaism.

    But Jesus' message was not just for the Jews, but for everyone (referred to as gentiles, meaning non-Jewish peoples). The whole second half of the New Testament is about that, including argument about whether or not it was necessary for gentiles to convert to Judaism first. Also, while Jesus referred to Jewish scripture often (because he was Jewish), he contradicted those laws just as often.

    No, you get an axe, because it's difficult to keep a spear balanced when you're fighting from the side of your longboat and also because a spear can't be used to build planks to repair said longboat the following morning.
