    I think the Christian attitude to Islam in the early days of that religion reflected the common evolution of human thought when confronted with something new.

    There is evidence the gladiators were more similar to the professional wrestlers of today than what the movies and the fiction books have portrayed them to be.

  17. Poll: Re: Newspapers are dangerous! They misinform the public. Should the system be reviewed?
