All abrahamic religions are destroyers

Reader comment on item: Islam vs. History

Submitted by Mozere (United Kingdom), Jul 5, 2012 at 06:55

There is a geographical and climatic explanation why the three abrahamic religions, not just Islam, destroyed ancient monuments and indeed ancient civilisation itself.

Middle East is the location for the first civilisations in the world. Namely Sumerian and Egyptian which eventually influenced the modern world. These were riverside civilisations where people on sunny fertile alluvial lands produced an abundance of food so people had time to pursue intellectual matters rather than hunt for food all the time. Surrounding these lands are barren lands where the Semitic tribes, jealous of their neighbours wealth, loathed,them , raided and sometimes conquered their neighbours lands. The riverside civilisations had no chance to evolve naturally.They were overtaken by Semitic revolutions which we call Semitic Abrahamic religions. Like all revolutionaries they abhorred everything that had gone before them.

Early Hebrews brought new tribal laws and customs that undermined the ancient cultural fabric. Early christianns disfigured ancient monuments of Egypt. They burnt down the library of Alexandra. Worst of all the Christianised ancient Greeks forgot their culture, this had to be reintroduced to Europe via Muslim scholars. Greeks let their monuments be neglected, they used them as a source of building materials. Later on they went on to burn valuable icons due to christian zeal.

By contrast Hindu and Chinese civilisations grew by evolution since there was no barren land full of hostile tribesman surrounding the Ganges and Yellow rivers.China is the oldest continuous state in the world and they still venerate their ancient beliefs.
