    1 thing I always wondered is how people can think there is only 1. What else is there only 1 of. Sometimes theists say we cannot prove there is no god but they cannot prove there are not many gods.
    The christian bible says there is more than 1 god.
    The Hebrews once were polytheist. What could have caused them to get rid of all but 1?

    IF we do find that dinosaurs & humans coexisted, that would be no evidence for god. Even if we find evolution to be wrong, that would be no evidence for god.
    It is DNA which causes the breakdown of aging. Perhaps DNA was different at some time. Perhaps it will be again. Still no evidence for any gods.

    Again, yes, child cruelty then those children grow up & do the same to their children. It is insane that society accepts this. We persecute, fine & imprison people for things which hurt no 1 but consenting adults yet do nothing about the most prevalent & horrible child abuse.

    They are not rational.

    I read the Romans ran into the problem with so many different religions it became hard to plan future events...oh we cant go to war next week the "x group" have three days of religious worship and after that the "y group" celebrate their gods birthday..oh and also dont forget the "z group" who need to go on a pilgrimage to la la land...
    Solution one God and a diary of managble religious events.

    Yes of course.
    But these folk are not rational.
    If they were rational there would be no problem.
    They see evolution as going against their belief..for goodness sake if they can manipulate the truth with ease and steal pagan celebrations to incorporate in their religious program why could they not manage to include evolution...well in this case for whatever stupid reasoning they make their indefensible stand using their stupidity as some sort of quality that should be respected...there is no hope for them...and sadly whilst these folk can scare children the problem will take time to sort it self out.

    No not that I can reference as authority.

    But the logic appeals.
    I believe rulers embrace religion as a secondary method to manage a society and it would make sense to have only one religion so you can plan your month more easy than say having various groups each of which must be respected.

    I wonder how our multi cultural approach to modern societies will manage the problem that must arise as we start to respect the various religions we will find in a multi cultural society.

    Already we have christians, jews, muslims, hindi presenting as part of our society and no doubt each have different days of importance. ...I guess someone will provide an app. which will make planning easy.

    Were the rulers rational enough for that? Were the people?
    What about the huge problems in forcing such a change?

    I was not checking your claim. I just want to read it.

    And hopefully the future will judge this era harshly.
    It amuses me how modern folk look at civilizations in the past and laugh at their strange customs and yet show no ability to look at themselves and realise they will be judged as stupid by a future hopefully more enlightened race of humans.

    How will those in the future laugh when they read so many believed a mythical God supposedly sent his only son to live and die as a human to support some convoluted notion that man needed relief from original sin...how folk can think any of it makes sense will be the question that will occupy the minds of future historians.
    And how they will laugh when they look at the clips of religious folk talking in tounges or being healed by miracle workers...
    Just as sexual harassment becomes exposed so must the cruelty of subjecting inoccent children to fear and distress in the name of a belief in an unevidenced God.
    Even if there is a God no one could possibly know its thoughts or purpose so the game is a hidious unsupported lie. ..I wish there was a God who would appear and punish these crazy stupid folk for cruelty to children.
    That would be nice.

    Sure I understand.
    Try a search if you dont find something I will be surprised.

    I am casual about offerring authority as believers dont look at it and that is obvious.

    I would say if you searched..reasons why Rome adopted christianity you could turn up something to read...if not that try..why societies prefer one religion...If you find nothing maybe I should write a book based on the idea.
    Good luck.

    I have read much on the Romans but I think I now forget more than I remember.
    I just rechecked the Wiki page on Constantine.

    Was there anything in there about how to talk ant? Or dinosaur?

    And anything about putting a saddle on the big ones to ride them?

    How effective do you think those reins would be?

    This is New Testament for those who claim some Old Testament commands no longer apply.
    I have never heard of anyone doing it. I have asked many whether they do it & they do not answer.

    As Moses very likely never lived part of your excuse for Hebrew slavery is invalid.
