but to say that the bible is the main reason of advancements in civilisations is just not right.
I didnt say it is the MAIN reason..... there is no main reason we advanced to the point that we did apart from our natural tendency to evolve this way (given our principles). I do, however, believe that it is a big part of what kick-started us into this direction.

There's no denying the bible played a big part in our history, but we would still have evolved as a civilization without the bible around to play the role of a moral compass.
I never said any different... i agree. We still would've evolved as a civilization, albeit a far more different one than our current civilization as we know it today.
Im guessing more of a hunger games type scenario. More scientifically advanced... sure! Less humane?... You bet ya!

What is the OT in reference to Judaism? I already stated that you can extrapolate Ancient Alien Theory from Christianity/Judaism/Catholicism...that's not the point...
Imagine if the correlation of native mythology, religion, and astronomy was used by Nasa instead of Erich Von Daniken jumping to the Ancient Alien Theory? So instead of the are we alone in the universe did God create us debate, we actually reference mythology, religion, and astronomy from native people instead? But we don't live in that reality because the native people's kingdoms were all taken over though colonization and the spread of the bible. It's sad.
the bible gave the planet it's moral compass? I have never heard that before
