They were mainly pagans in Europe pre Christianity. They weren't all barbarians at all. But worshiped sun, moon etc. Living in harmony with nature.
They didn't choose to adopt Christianity. They were forced into it. Even killed for not adopting it.
The European Christians made their way from Spain to south America. They met with the leader of the Myans. They gave the leader a bible. He gave it back. They used that as an excuse to wipe out an entire race of people by justifying it as not accepting Christianity. Then stole all their gold. How very Christian of then.
Back to Europe. Middle ages. No education was allowed. If one was to try and educate oneself. You were a witch. And killed for that. How Christian of them.
Even Leonardo da Vinci had to write his stuff in riddles in order not to be classed as a witch and put to death. By Christians.
Pre christian Europe had great philosophers. Plato, Socrates etc. Without the Christian ban on education, Maybe we'd be living a much better life now. Far more advanced than we are now.
Slow down there cowboy. How do you explain that one? Lol. There's historical records of Jesus death in the Catholic Church.
Pseudepigrapha (also Anglicized as "pseudepigraph" or "pseudepigraphs")
are falsely attributed works, texts whose claimed author is not the true author, or a work whose real author attributed it to a figure of the past. The word pseudepigrapha (from the Greek: ψευδής, pseudes, "false" and ἐπιγραφή, epigraphē, "name" or "inscription" or "ascription"; thus when taken together it means "false superscription or title"; see the related epigraphy) is the plural of "pseudepigraphon" (sometimes Latinized as "pseudepigraphum").
Pseudepigraphy covers the false ascription of names of authors to works, even to authentic works that make no such claim within their text. Thus a widely accepted but incorrect attribution of authorship may make a completely authentic text pseudepigraphical. Assessing the actual writer of a text locates questions of pseudepigraphical attribution within the discipline of literary criticism.
In Old Testament biblical studies, the term Pseudepigrapha typically refers to an assorted collection of Jewish religious works thought to be written c 300 BC to 300 AD. They are distinguished by Protestants from the Deuterocanonical (Catholic and Orthodox) or Apocrypha (Protestant), the books that appear in extant copies of the Septuagint from the fourth century on, and the Vulgate but not in the Hebrew Bible or in Protestant Bibles.
Catholics distinguish only between the deuterocanonical and all the other books, that are called biblical Apocrypha, a name that is also used for the pseudepigrapha in the Catholic usage. In addition, two books considered canonical in the Tewahedo churches, viz. 1 Enoch and Jubilees, are categorized as "pseudepigrapha" from the point of view of the Chalcedonian churches.
Then I had a deep, vivid dream. I was at a Christmas party and a few guys followed me into the backroom where people go to hang out at such events, and their faces morphed into demonic like faces. They threw needles at me but I caught them with my bare hands and threw them back then darted past. They followed and I jumped off of the balcony. Then I started gliding through the air and landed perhaps one hundred feet away on my feet gracefully, then I ran off with superhuman-like speed. Don't tell me to lay off of the drugs because as I've said, I'm sober. I go check my video comments and some guy with no subscribers or videos is calling me a racist.
You can say Jesus never existed because there's only mostly heresay even though we had halfway intelligent historians recording events at the time.
