I don't think it would be wise to suggest such a thing within their hearing.

Aye, it is foolish to insult the gods. It is a sure way to bring down plagues, terrible storms and worse.

Fortasse dei non sunt?

In case you're wondering, the Latin word for "blasphemy" is "blasphemia"

fortasse dei non sunt sapientes, sed psittacus sapiens est

Psittacus ebrius quoque sapiens est. :)

For the most part, I would agree, lol. They would not wage war so much if they were.

Can one also translate as, "Perhaps there are no wise gods"?

This word order doesn't work exactly. "Fortasse dei sapientes non sunt" should be good, but it still can be translated as before

Oof, look at these fools saying you're dumb, Jupiter

If they got drunk gods, of course they are not wise... Always are drunk, or ebrios.. i was expecting learning something wiser ... In terms of gods... But they are all stypid or drunk... Please... Add a term of drinking alcohol separate from all topics...

Well there's Bacchus but then there are others like Minerva, Diana, and Apollo that aren't usually so tipsy or epicurean in the stories. :D
