Hi Milo:

I take your point. It is indeed true that there is scarcely anything in the ritual or dogma of the Roman Catholic Church that can not be directly traced to Mithraic or other Pagan sources. My point, however, is that by wiping out Pagan places of education--closing, for example, the academies, and by abolishing all overt Pagan practices on the part of outsiders while all the while "baptizing them" for Christian usage, the illusion was created that a new and different faith was taking over, one uniquely given by God and sanctioned by the secular power. Through the advanced organizational skills of the Romans, plus the power of the legions, conquest of the world became a reality.

best,

Tom
