"I'm not implying that he is undeserving of your scorn, only that you may have been a bit excessive"
RightofRush, I find it impossible to feel sorry for keith trash or chris white when they spread malicious smears, libel & whatever trash they can get away with about specific individuals. They've been caught time & time again misrepresenting Acharya's works even AFTER
having been corrected and proven to be inaccurately distorting her work. They simply refuse to make any necessary adjustments because that is inconvenient to their smear campaign. Keith has made videos that even decent Christians were so embarrassed that they put pressure on him to remove the video himself. These guys are the same type of people who instigated the crusades & Inquisitions that led to the dark ages. They attack non-believers who expose their religion for what it really is. What they represent is blatant discrimination against those who believe differently than they do or not at all. It's defined as bigotry.
"I remember coming across the idea that the reason that Christianity won out over Mithraic beliefs is that water was cheaper for baptism than the blood of bulls."
Mithraism catered towards the military. It didn't offer much at all for women. Christianity had important roles for women such as the virgin mother Mary and others. Even though women were still 2nd class, at least it included important roles for them. That was a major factor in Christianity winning out. Maybe, if Mithraism had made the adjustments to include women, they would've won.
