    I don't want you to think for a moment that I am big noting myself, but the simple fact, the simple fact of my life, is that I wasn't born. Yes, I have never been born. I am in fact a Caesar. Mole is a Caesarian. No wonder the Weasels, Stoats, and Ferrets, approach me with sharp eyes and sharp knives. Et tu, I whisper, as I am betrayed on the steps of the Senate.

    I read a lot of this sort of thing, its usually accompanied with a sort of excited idea that it validates atheism or at the very least invalidates Christianity or Catholcism or whatever, I read one of Dawkin's books once and it was a lot like that, there are literally, generations of scholarism which stacks up favourably against things like this, which once you've done the reading looks like exactly what it is, the confirmation bias of people who dont do much research anyway.
    True, I haven't done much research.

    As the Romans conquered other regions, those regions' administration language became that of the Romans. I only imagined that to successfully absorb them, as part of the process of administration language, the culture/religion would also be absorbed. There is nothing I can point to that will prove it, however I would think that would assist in why there are so many factions of Christianity and end up breaking away to form their own version of it.

    I am in no way trying to disprove Christianity.

    So yes, I am agreeing with you and I am probably repeating what you said. Oh well.
