Hi Conservative. Thanks for your great articles, especially on Christianity vs atheism. I came across a very interesting article, about atheists praising Christianity: "While studying the ancient world, Holland writes, he realized something. Simply, the ancients were cruel, and their values utterly foreign to him. The Spartans routinely murdered “imperfect” children. The bodies of slaves were treated like outlets for the physical pleasure of those with power. Infanticide was common. The poor and the weak had no rights.
From There to Here … How did we get from there to here? It was Christianity, Holland writes. Christianity revolutionized sex and marriage, demanding that men control themselves and prohibiting all forms of rape. Christianity confined sexuality within monogamy. (It is ironic, Holland notes, that these are now the very standards for which Christianity is derided.) Christianity elevated women. In short, Christianity utterly transformed the world." https://stream.org/atheists-in-praise-of-christianity/ Your thoughts on the article?
- He is a historian. I am glad he is not totally hostile to Christianity and believes it has positive social power. But for his sake, I wish he would dig more deeply into the historicity of the resurrection of Christ and become a Christian. It seems naturalism/evolutionism is a stumbling block for him and he has bought into those paradigms.Conservative (talk) 18:14, 21 May 2020 (EDT)
