Romans had many gods when they expanded their empire, and they lost all of it after adapting christianity.

The relation of culture and religion. :roll:

Why, and what is their rational?

Using your logic Ethiopia should do pretty well. ;)

You didn't answer my "In what way?"

Does this mean you don't know?

Ah, yes.

You think that Christianity means progress, success and all good things. And Ethiopia has been traditionally Christian, so it should do pretty well. But it is not. :roll:

But now I have spotted my error: only 0.7 % Ethiopians are Catholic.

OTOH in Haiti the same number is 56.8%. ;)

Silly nonsense, like expecting a quadruple amputee to win medals at the Olympics because you gave him a prosthetic leg.

Why not compare likes, like Islamic civilization versus Western civilization, or as the Chinese did 'Western vs Asian'?
