But if we look at the history of science we find its also a art of contradictions . Science makes new discovery that contradicts what they thought was true ...And so it moves on from the new knowledge . The religious contradictions I have found seem to stem from my own suppositions that were in error . Not all of those came from religion but from public school or TV and culture.
Religion is the art of contradiction-at least science has a basis in reality.
You are correct that it is a complicated subject and hard to understand , But if you are interested then spending a hour with a good scholar is well worth the time .

One thing to always remember with cases like this is: Conquering forces breed more with females of the conquered people than the conquered males do. Their males die, are sold into slavery and so on. Their females survive and are usually the mothers of mixed children that are later increasingly mixed into the conquering population with each successive generation.
