Hard or Soft Polytheism and Strange Questions

Hard polytheism specifies a variety of polytheism which considers the various Gods and Goddesses to be distinct beings with separate personalities.

Soft polytheism is a variety of polytheism whose adherents believe in many Gods and Goddesses but consider them in some way as manifestations of a larger universal force rather than as distinct entities.

I have been in some discussions with other pagans about hard and soft polytheism. Some questions came up that I had no answer for, like, As a "Hard" polytheist do you regect science and believe Zeus is in the clouds tossing thunderbolts?

What do you think?
