Black Thunder 42:<quoted text>
I don't see that in ancient history over "religious" views at all.
I don't see it in Sumer-Babylonia-Egypt-Mu-Inca- Dogon-vedics-American Indians.
All their wars were non religious , and "asset" related. A war in China may have been a war over religion(as was with the Reich), but was more about the economic depression of it's inhabitants, and was much later in history.
A couple of examples:
In the Mahabarata, wasn't it Arjuna that blew the horn of war, and shot the arrows that destroyed both sides? Have you read the Bhagavad-Gita?
Egypt's Thutmosis II marched in the name of their gods to Meggido to conquer.(Note on Armeggedon). And Egypt's goddess of war was Neith.
I thin you are correct that there is a connection to what you are writing however, in that humanity uses the name of God to go to war, and mainly this is for economic/resource reasons.(In ancient times the world seemed endless.) But as we know the world is finite, and resouces are becoming less, are people going to be "tricked" into war in the name of God? What is your opinion?
