    The Romans methods of control were not exhausted more than a hundred years before the height of their power in 150 AD.

    The Praetorian Guard was the only physcological tool the Roman empire needed.

    It does not matter as it all goes back to what someone once said, "if there was no god man would invent one". Think about that while gathering in all religions and sight one instance of proof of god and do not dare sight a "miracle". Show proof!!
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    In reference to your post and your sig, if we assume that the Big Bang theory is a factual account of the birth and life of our universe, that all matter and time in our Universe existed in one singulariry, ( a point of infinite gravitational pull and zero mass ) then we can not discount the existence of a creator.

    All scientist can say is that our Universe had a begining, and that a singularity minus even the dimension of time existed.

    There is far too much order in our Universe to discount intelligent design and man inately has been trying to qualify that intelligence for millennia.

    Excellent point. A true atheist wouldn't seek out "proof" that there was no creator.

    It would seem at least a few atheist here are more politically motivated to prove that the Christian God is a fallacy rather than prove the absence of a God all together.

    Wouldn't it be kind of funny if a Jesus of Nazareth actually never existed?

    Like, this amazing story and all it has evolved into is all based on....mythology

    there are plenty of well researched debunkings of zeitgeist. FYI, it's great to be skeptical, it's another thing to claim to be skeptical and latch onto every hair-brained researcher with a theory that appeals to you

    Well it was based on a poor script anyway. Superman was much better.
