    "Even if your contention that the monothestic religions are ultimately bad influences on mankind is correct, they are undoubtably better then what preceded them. Or do you think that it is more enlightened to burn your children in a fire and worship idols then these monothestic religions?"-ODP I don't know whether any of monotheistic religions are any better than something that would have been instead nor believe that you know. What is obvious is that none of them escaped burning children in fire and idol worshiping and equally obvious that there have been many "pagan" communities before and today that knew none. I won't go into to which extent the jealousy of monotheistic god(s) was inductive to killing and converting by force the representatives of other monotheisms. Just tell me what makes you think today the we would eat children if Moses would have sailed unnoticed in his cradle?
