Christianity is much better than the Paganism of Europe.


Questionable. I doubt we'd be a sexually repressed society if we celebrated sex like pagans did.

While the sort of unthinking anti-religion rhetoric that the trilby crowd spout is insipid and unproductive, it is equally unproductive to not acknowledge the shortcomings in various isms. And it really cannot be argued that Christianity was a major anti-sex and pro-patriarchal influence upon Europe. And Islam was likewise a very patriarchal influence upon the middle east. Many other religious, including most pre-Christian pagan religions was far more in contact with human sexuality, and some pre-Christian societies had a degree of gender equality that would not be seen again in Europe until the 20th century.

However, it is also pertinent to mention that it is uncertain whether human sacrifices in Europe would have ended without Christianity.

I was trolling.

Also the reverse of being sexually repressed isn't any better: being promiscuous to the point you have little to no energy to study the stars, the organs, and so forth. Polytheistic Pagans didn't study **** and were too busy ritualistically dancing around tunes that reference nothing (i.e., superstitions).

I'm not saying monotheism is any better, but it was an improvement in how it grounded man in the natural state of things more.

Actually they had a good knowledge of the stars, just not as much as the Indians or Mesopotamians who were really the fore runners of astrology. And the Indians were the guys who made the karma sutra and the mesopotamian religions had prostitute priestesses and belived the world was made when a guy flooded the world in his semen and then slept with his sister, daughter and granddaughter.
These were not anti-sex people. These were people who made sex a central aspect of life. And they invented a f***load of science and philosophy.

Actually, your celibate Christians wouldn't really start inventing stuff for a few centuries later and then it was mostly beer and stuff for making war. Then later on, sex got back into the public with the wild and "f*** it, we're all going to die anyway so why not invent the gimp suit" sex-orgies of the Renaissance when art started improving by leaps and bounds.

Still trolling apparently.

Well, I'll humor you.

With how american's education system it's not bad idea to send kids off to ranch once in while to work up to 8 hours a day. Might do well to improving their work ethic. Something that's actually useful to learn for real life out there. There are many lazy people who have s*** work ethic.

I'm a Persian and Zoroastrian.

I don't want sex orgies.

You white people can do that if you want.

Christianity civilized your backwards Pagan nonsense, and Christianity wouldn't exist without Persian influence. Those heathen religions have no place in the world of modern empirical science. Don't make me take out my shamshir.

The greatest minds have been celibate (e.g., Nikola Tesla), but that doesn't mean one should be celibate. It just means being preoccupied with sex will waste your energy. The Pagans accomplished nothing compared to when they became Christians.
