Top 10 Scenarios If Christianity Never ExistedThis list isn't meant to offend. It's just a list about a simple "What if?" scenario of Christianity completely disappearing from existence. That is all.
I used to think that religion was the main cause of all the wars and sufferings that have been going on in the world but to tell you all the truth, while religion has caused wars which is not at all false, it isn't entirely accurate either. Even if religion didn't exist we would still have wars (whether it be because of race, language culture, etc.). Human beings are always finding different ways to kill each other so would we be much better if we didn't have religion? I just wanna point that out there.
Whether you're religious or not, what's more important to realize is that you should never use your own beliefs to justify bad behavior. Believe what you want but always be responsible about it and don't go around causing harm in others. Don't discriminate either because it makes you look like an even bigger douchebag. Enough said.
The Tom and were homophobic and many other ancient civilization's so that's always existed.
The church actually made homosexuality illegal for centuries. It's the churches fault.
Are you a fan of Veggietales? Since you was a little kid? What if Christianity never existed? There would be no such thing as Veggietales. No Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber.
Then learn the point of the Easter Bunny.
Yes, but, there would have been other types of religious wars.
The church was jealous of Paganism and removed them.
Pancake day would be about the sun.
Easter would be about fertility but it would be called Ostara
Halloween would be Pagan new year but called Samhain.
Christmas would be called Yule and would be about the Rebirth and The Return of the Sun.
By the way I was making fun of number 10 Everyone would go to hell because of some new mobile phone advert for 3 mobile The Serpent telling Eve to eat the Apple.
? If Christianity never existed, then nobody would believe in that stuff, considering that it's made up.
No people would have braincells and realise Christianity was not the first religion. Our ancestors were Pagans. (Roman, Greek or Celtic)
Muhammad's brother in-law was christian and interpreted his vision of "angel Gabriel" who tried to choke him. If there was no christianity, Muhammad had commited suicide because he thought he was posessed by an evil spirit.
If you ask me, it would've been beneficial for the Middle East. Without sectarian violence, oppressive religious laws, and radicalism and such. I don't mean offense around here.
Not really. We might have more vestiges of clan structure and culture but no, urban development and nation states would still have arisen, and indeed did well before Christianity ever existed. In fact we might have done away with tribal society even sooner, since Christianity is arguably one of the reasons the Roman Empire fractured.
Yes, christianity made a pretty common ground for most europeans. Also, christian cultures are very similar to each other. No France, no Spain, no Russia, no Switzerland.
Well, most of the world already is sexist. Rather, I think the continued presence of feminine deities in spiritual life may have accelerated the progression of women's rights. That's not a guarantee of course but I doubt sexism would be MORE prevalent than it is today.
Ancient religions of Rome and Greece were very patriarchal. So patriarchal that male leaders preferred to bounce with boy lovers instead of their wives. And when I say boy I mean children as well. It wasn't even a secret back then.
Maybe Christianity is better sometimes but Paganism isn't sexist and that came before.
*The World if Christianity never existed* Who is Jesus? A kid in school is made fun of because he was named Jesus, because the name sounds really old.
They thought epilepsy was demonic possession.
No Christianity then we wouldn't think that more like an examination dunno how back then.
Even more so, people liked to confront christianity because of its dogmaticism. In pagan cultures all around the world this missing part seems to let the people stick to their religious beliefs. (India, Japan)
According to non christian scholars, christianity arose out of christian proselyte communities especially within Greece and Roma. Judaism was indeed popular, and maybe another christianity still existed (without Jesus whatsoever)
Judaism was pretty popular in rome, around 10% of romans were jews around year 30. so we could see a jewish rome in around year 100

No they would not.
