July 250 BC? The month was renamed july in honor of Julius Ceasar(102-45bc). So saying july 250 BC in the context you did is a blunder.

Now back to the subject. You said you live in Hamburg Germany as opposed to Canada. Wow, what a big difference! Germany is very similar to Canada in many ways. Mainly they both have a mild form of capitalism and huge social programms.

Now, where do you think the west learned about the incentive to take care of the poor? From the teachings of Jesus, that's where. You can choose to deny it all you want, but that remains the fact. All the rights you enjoy in Germany could you enjoy them in a backward islamic country? The answer is a big no. You said you work. Well that's good, must muslims in europe prefer not to so they can enjoy the benefits of a Judeo-Christian system that takes care of the lazy.

How could someone tell you what you have is from the hands of vishnu? Do you live in India? No you don't. So such a claim would be irrelavant. You live in the west. You live where there is freedom and opportunity. All that is based on Judeo-Christian teachings. So you have a lot to thank Jesus for.

You think you know more about the church than I do? Well this is just another facet of your wishful thinking mind. From what you have been saying it's obvious your knowledge of Christianity is very limited. But feel free to engage me in debate on that subject. I never like to miss a chance to educate an ignorant person. Canada is what it is today because it has a judea-Christian foundation. In the quiet revolution Canadians did not reject Christianity, but allowed room for more secular thinking. In other words a seperation of church and state. But Quebec never rejected its Christian roots. Before the quiet revolution the economy of Quebec was mainly agricultural, the revolution advocated for a more industrial economy. That's the type of change that took place during that time. Learn your history before you make demagogic statements.
