30. You talk as if religion is all one thing.
It is not.
The followers of Jesus was the source of the christian religion, and yet there descendants are noting like them.
For one thing they "held all things in common...comunist..
But over time all that was modified a little at a time and so what we see later are the splinters of the beginning and most every one is roting from the perpetual corruption of 2000 years.
So you see what is now and assume it has always been that way.

I did not assume anything, I was using atheist as the opposite of christian, and I try to assume that most people here are somewhere in between.

Would it be fair to say that all of John Steinbecks books have no useful content because they were not truth, but something from his imagination?
