After the Great Fire of Rome in A.D. 64, when rumours swirled that the emperor himself was responsible, Nero blamed the Christians instead. According to the Roman historian Tacitus, Nero had the Christians covered in wild beast skins and torn to death by dogs

From where I stand; I'm not of the Christian or the Jewish faith, but it's mind boggling when every time someone brings up the Islamic criminal gauge, even if the post comes from an X-Muslim; as a few of my friends here in this forum, the Christians and the Jews get all the blame. I've read both Testaments; in conclusion I think the later dogma (aka Koran) is the worst, it has no forgiveness or mercy!

Originally I was born a Buddhist, and a deep thinker; I don't practice any religion but peaceful logic!

During the day there are too many wild distractions. People meet their inner consciousness to think while we sleep - as I do sometime when it's lat night fall!

You don't have to be religious to appreciate Daniel.

It is also just a myth used as a teaching point by the established religion at that time and place. Also currently misused, when the message is that your faith will protect you, is used as an excuse to avoid proven medical procedres, and the current shut down because of the virus. As "evidence" the religious professionals can´t lose. If you break the law and assemble in church, but don´t get sick, that proves your faith, but if you do get sick, it is simply the punishment of a god created by man in his image, for your lack of faith in him.

Similarly, the reports do not include Taliban claims for their attacks on the government unless they can be verified. Both sides routinely inflate casualty totals for their opponents.

The sky is full of vultures
The sharks have left the sea
Thieves and murderers roam the street.
