No answer from 1I, so far...
When the going gets tough and honesty is required, theists vanish.
That or as seems to be the trend, they have just vanished because they cannot seem to win arguments.
There are good reasons why Christianity and Islam used the sword instead of good moral arguments to grow their religions. They did not have good moral arguments.
It is nice to be a Gnostic Christian these days as they cannot use their Inquisitions to silence us the way they did in the past.
Venture forth where. I have confronted them here and other places. You also have to understand that some actual read the Bible and have learned that Christ gave a limit to their evangelizing which is found in
Matthew 10:14 If anyone will not welcome you or listen to your words, leave that home or town and shake the dust off your feet.
The reasons that religious people have caused so much blood in this world is because they were human and desired power. That is pretty much universal for all groups and civilizations, especially during the times when these religions were growing through the world. I don't imagine that Alexander thought his campaigns were any less righteous than any done by Christians or Muslim.
You are still using the term moral as if today's morality was the same as it was during the times you speak of. The very reason that religious wars were fought was because of personal interpretations of morality and the superficial understand of the morality of others.
This seems to be at the core of your argument here Your interpretations.
