  • 'what if' is a never-ending thought. it WAS written, regardless of beliefs in its totality or authorship or purpose.
    to answer you question, its not something i've ever given thought to. its like chocolate..it exists, i love it, and can't imagine not having it. and i'm not alone in those thoughts. (for chocolate, that is.)

  • Then everyone who is religious now would most likely be following the text of some other religion.

  • Well, since the Bible came from Sacred Tradition ( Apostolic teaching) that hasn't changed. It wouldn't change a thing for me.

  • Then the population would be trying to find other "gods" to worship. It's been that way since the beginning.

  • The world would be completely different. People who died in wars and invasions would've lived longer, people who lived because the church protected them might not have. Chances are nobody who is alive today still would be, because generations back would've had enough shifting.

    People already had other gods, and still do. It wasn't like Judaism came along and found a bunch of people sitting around with nothing to do.
