<quoted text> No. This is not true. How did the persecuted Christians over powered the Roman power?
Constantine raised an Army and defeated Emperor Licinius in battle. Licinius surrendered.

Then Emperor Constantine hanged him a year later, breaking his promise to him that his life would be spared if he surrendered.

Onward Christian soldiers!

Then you are astoundingly progressive for a creationist. However, it is indeed the creationist argument that Adam and Eve were "genetically perfect."
As I've heard it, the running hypothesis/delusion is that because of their perfect genes (presumably from being directly created by God, I suppose), they and their children were able to inbreed without any adverse effects. After the Fall, the genome started degrading, and has been 'devolving' into random noise ever since.
If that sounded like nonsense to you, then your BS radar might still be functioning.
The so-called Adam and Eve may have been genetically perfect, but they were also non-existent.

According to archaeology, paleoanthropology, and DNA science there was NO Adam and Eve as written in the Bible. To use them in explanations about Christianity and Christian dogma is bogus. They are total fiction.

Romans 3: 28
So Jesus said to them,“Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17: 20

Thank IANS :D
Men of faith have repeatedly tried to move mountains and have NEVER been able to do so.

Jesus lied....

They were only persecuted when they caused trouble. The reason Christianity grew in popularity was because they stopped pishing off the Romans. The Romans were fine with this because they were quite happy to incorporate new religions into the Roman pantheon when they conquered a new state. The only problem with the Christians was that they rejected Roman authority and refused to recognise the Emperor as such. That was why they were persecuted. Those that didn't go around shouting their mouths off were fine. And it is only because of people like that that Christianity was able to gradually grow in popularity. To the point where eventually a Roman Christian citizen grew up to be a politician. And being good at politics, managed to scheme his way to the top.
THAT's your 'divine intervention'. Politics.
And Christianity has mastered the art ever since.

So what you're saying is that it's all a big conspiracy even though you have no evidence because the big conspiracy wiped out all evidence?

So far your "divine interventions" have appeared to be less than impressive.

Ofcourse Jesus is the founder of the Christian faith, even Paul stated that in all his epistles.
You mean besides actually appearing thus proving it's existence?

I can quote too:

"I worry because everyone seems to look up to me and it's making me a little uncomfortable. I can try but I can't solve every problem. I don't know if I can live up to this... myth they want me to be."
-JLA #6, Grant Morrison

SUPERMAN: "I can only tell you what I believe, Diana: humankind has to be allowed to climb to its own destiny. We can't carry them there."
FLASH: "But that's what she's saying. What's the point? Why should they need us at all?"
SUPERMAN: "To catch them if they fall."
-JLA #4, Grant Morrison

And of course:

"This looks like a job for Superman!" Numerous sources.

So you want to discredit the Bible just because the apostate church perverts some of its teachings?
