    what is going to happen to western civilization when Christianity has been replaced

    Well it's already happening in many countries in the world, and highest percentage of countries that are the most peaceful on the planet, are the countries that have the lowest percentage of religious followers. You're argument is nothing short of a fanatical stance to soothe the ego of a believer.

    I would be very interested in seeing proof of that, link please?

    I live in Canada, one of the most peacful places on Earth and, if I recall the lastest census correctly, the vast majority were religious.

    This isn't a topic about replacing paganism. It's about Christianity.

    Looking at the map, the most violent places seem to be hotbeds of islam and whatever they do in Africa.

    What has paganism got to do with it? It's simply showing the high percentage of the most peaceful countries in the world are the countries that have a high percentage of people who are either non religious or do not consider religion important.

    The comments you made previous are not only ignorant, but downright unthruthful. Countries that put religion aside and focus on equality for ALL and human rights are generally more peaceful than countries where christianity, or any other religion is considered important to leaders and the people, and then get involved, or try to get involved in their political structure and law making.

    What has the ramblings of the fanatical fraudster Ron Wyatt got to do with it? Nothing.
    It doesn't alter the fact that societies that put aside religious doctrine in the pursuit of equality and human rights for ALL it's citizens are generally more peaceful than countries where religions and their teachings play a more active role and is more adhered to.

    Other peoples religious rights end where my human rights begin.

    If Christians want to catch an accurate glimpse of what Early Christianity must have been like all they have to do is closely examine the Fundamentalist Muslims!

    They are in a time warp.

    The Jews have become Post-Enlightenment thinkers living a practical life in a modern world with a free government and a people who transform a desert into farmland.

    The Muslims are Pre-Enlightenment reactionaries angry that Jews appear to be better at adapting to the real world than they are.

    This anger boils over into using religious purity as an excuse to wipe out whatever falsifies their corrupt religious interpretations.

    That's a stretch Terry,

    Early christians don't really strike me as militant.

    Some were closed minded, yes and some already saw the potential for control ( See the bishop issue), but on a whole they were passive and non-aggressive.

    Unless you know otherwise.

    Now, post-roman empire christians, they were a militant group for centuries.
