    What have I learned from my "fear"? Oh, how to sail small boats across oceans, how to navigate without GPS, how to teach history, how to analyze various chemicals and a few other things which have been known to kill ignorant people.

    EVERY question presented to you jimmie, you have shown yourself incapable of answering in any rational, truthful manner. Time and time again you have shown that you know little of the actual history of the Christian religion(s). Deny or attempt to divert have been your only two choices thru out this thread.

    Stop bringing facts into this deabte. What matters was that everything was horrible under Roman rule until Christianity came around and we got the dark ages, the crusades, the inquisistion and that wonderful time known as the reformation and the wars it brought about

    Europeans spent a lot of time warring. That stopped during the Pax Romana. Later on when Roman power declined the European Christians started killing each other again.

    I can't help it. I have studied European history and I have a compulsion to tell the truth.

    There's your problem ou actually studied history instead of letting your cult leader tell you what to think
