GUEST,Steamin' Willie BS: Dinosaurs and Unicorns on the Ark! (201* d) RE: BS: Dinosaurs and Unicorns on the Ark! 06 Jan 11

I have been recording and watching a series of programs on ancient civilisations recently. Not for the first time, I have been acquainted with the notion that Romans embraced cultures and religions, making them part of the Roman culture. Much easier to control people if you don't threaten their heritage.

I assume Christians didn't like the idea of being assimilated?

Too true about the 100 year gap in stories being collated. Newspapers distort as events unfold, so how about writers who are trying to push a point?

I have read parts of the King James bible, mainly because the wonderful writing style is a history lesson in itself. However, I have also read Tolkien, enjoying his style too. On balance, he tells a better story for that matter.
