Was the Roman Empire great, Walter? Did it achieve great things and make vast strides in science, medicine, architecture, and governance? How about Periclean Athens, the birthplace of democracy?

Neither of them believed in your Great Big Invisible Sky Daddy.

No they believed in different gods for different things , but it came down invisible sky daddies. And a Roman emperor who made the Church of Jesus the state religion .

There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."
