    Major differences though, The Gambino’s fought back and were intent on killing their enemies and gain personal wealth.
    no actually blood shed is bad for business.

    The early church leaders gave up their wealth, witnessed peace and forgiveness to their enemies and did not resist persecution but accepted their fates at the hands of their enemies.
    Wow what a romantic notion, to bad it isnt based on facts.

    Please link scientifically as to where it came from and what was there before it....
    They have these places called libraries, perhaps you've heard of them? Maybe you ought to actually get an education before you make yourself look like a fool.

    game set match.
    Hardly. This comes from a religious background where they simply make crap up (a god), demand that it's always existed, provide no reasonable explanation for how that could be, assert that this god, for which there is no evidence whatsoever, created everything without providing a mechanism for such to have happened, then sits down acting smug because you've got a tremendous fantasy and you think you're doing better than everyone else.

    Come on back when you can actually support any of that with objective evidence, okay? Until then, I'll go where the evidence actually leads and that's a purely naturalistic explanation.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I freely admit that I'm anti-religion in the same sense that I'm anti-slavery, anti-racism and anti-stupidity. If you're expecting that's a revelation, I don't know what to tell you.

    And religion is hypocritical which is why I oppose it. It's not that religion exists that I dislike, it's that religion, the overwhelming majority of them anyhow, create their own double and triple-standards for evaluating reality, invent their own definitions, and make absurd exceptions for their magic man in the sky. There aren't many religions that don't do that and for the very few that do, I've got no problem with them whatsoever, even if I don't agree with their methods or beliefs.

    Too bad none of those religions are western religions.

    Apparently the Gambinos do not agree with your assessment of what constitutes good business practice.
    Gambino crime family Summary
    The Gambino Crime Family is one of the "Five Families" that controls organized crime activities based in New York City, United States, within the nationwide criminal phenomenon known as the Mafia (or Cosa Nostra). Based in New York City, the group's operations extend to much of the eastern seaboard and all across the nation to California. Its illicit activities include labor racketeering, gambling, loansharking, extortion, murder for hire, solid and toxic waste dumping violations, construction, building and cement violations, fraud and wire fraud, hijacking, pier thefts and fencing.

    Until Constantine Christianity was a banned persecuted religion. The broad main stream teaching was pacifist and peaceful submission to execution. If you have information to the contrary please post it.

    There were also Gnostic sects of course and perhaps there were a few sects that believed in violent resistance. I would not be surprised but I have never looked into it either

    The big bang did the cause of atheism no favors. Atheism is better supported by the steady state model. No beginning no end thus the biblical book of Genesis could not possibly be true and evolution had an infinite amount of time to operate. No creator etc. If the universe truly was static atheism would be triumphant.

    Nothing more than your personal opinion which of course you are entitled to. The atheists have made up some of their own crap. Bubble universes, Parallel universes, Baby Universes. Infinite universes where anything can happen but none of these have been discovered or scientifically studied.
