From WILLIAM EDELEN
The Contrary Minister (2002)
“For the understanding of religions… a complete understanding of myth is mandatory.” -Mircia Eliade.
[...] When Alfred North Whitehead was the chair of philosophy at Harvard University, he made this observation: “Christian theology has been the greatest disaster in the history of the human race.”
Was he correct? A brief review:
391 C.E. (A.D.): Christians burn down one of the greatest libraries in the world in Alexandria. Over 700,000 scrolls were destroyed.
500 to 1000: The church takes over and brings with it the cancer of the Dark Ages, destroying almost everything that defined civilization. The Christian church all but wiped out education, technology, science, medicine, history, art and commerce. During this period the church amassed enormous wealth.
1099: Christian crusaders take Jerusalem and massacre Jews and Muslims. In the streets were piles of heads, hands and feet. Millions were killed as a result of the Crusades.
