Another word you are quite unfamiliar with: integrity.

Just as you are clueless what "straw man" means...

Why do you keep on making a fool of yourself like this?

Oh!

I >>almost<< forgot... you are one of those Genuine Christians™... you literally cannot help yourself BUT to lie.

So lie is what you do-- it's all that you do.

Sad.

Not always. Some histories were written by the losers who managed to escape the tyranny.

You really don't have a clue, do you?

How history is done, I mean....!

Right?

LMAO!

You idiot-- "history" is not that simple. Historians try to re-create what happened, based on a whole host of sources, including diaries, letters, books, journals, judicial records, civic records, artifacts, grave markers, etc, etc, etc.

It's a complex and lengthy process-- IF the historian is interested in objectivity-- but even then? He or she must make MANY interpretations and guesses as to what actually happened.

And wars are the worst-- during wartime, everyone is typically too busy to bother writing anything down at the time.

And human memory being what it is... flawed at >>best<<... all we get later, is best-guesses.

Go back to school-- you obviously flunked out. Twice (at least)

Christianity: The belief that some cosmic Jewish Zombie can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him that you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

Makes perfect sense.

...Yeah...(F.Y.I)....We try "not" to give Islam too many props in this thread .....

I don't really want to say Islamic endeavors were outstanding ..It was just that European endeavors ...took a nose dive , And , thank God for the Muslims at that time (they kept mankind from going off a precipice .)

Actually? You are lying yet again-- under Genuine Christianity™, only the LEADERS enjoyed peace, liberty and prosperity-- ON THE BACKS OF EVERYONE ELSE.
We already have seen History, when Genuine Christianity™ was in charge: it was called The Dark Ages.
Twas an ugly time to be alive-- unless you were one of the aforementioned leaders, of course.
So no-- you are sadly mistaken.

Hey, Space Cadet, open your eyes. Life is so much more than you are acknowledging. After we grow up, we understand that even the things we are not looking at, still exist. Peek-a-boo time is over, even with your hands over your face, we atheist are moving forward in our lives, in our careers and in our communities. Get used to it!

You need to get out of the city , camp under the stars ..and, then question whether or not a God exists ..

something , else to ponder ..Jesus wasn't very popular in life , He didn't leave behind any writings , all His apostles were executed ...And, yet "we" name our children 'Peter'..'Mary'..'Joseph'..'Ma rk'..(etc)....and, "we" name our dogs 'Caesar'..'Nero'..'Attila'..'P haraoh'....

Why, do you think that is ...????

Seriously?

And how do you suppose the "victors" WRITE it?

Using magic? Do they gaze into magical crystal balls, to view the near-past, and write what they saw?

Oh, my! You are as uneducated as it is possible to be, and still manage to two-finger a post on Topix....

Quite true. Islamic culture had a period of enlightenment that has now sadly passed, eclipsed by xenophobia and extremism.
