Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Were there any war movies made during WW2 that were well regarded by front-line American soldiers?
@Lohoris: I see your point. That decision should rest with the Rose Ames to be honest. I am loathed to edit her(?) questions to change its meaning.

comment Who first in human history has promoted equality rights of all people?
This does not answer the question I am afraid. It just refutes some points in other posts. Could you expend it to refute all major religions (which would kind of answer the question) or better yet focus on answering the question?

comment Were there any well known royal dynasties that did not in some way cite religious mandate for their rule?
I am not sure if the kings of the Polish-Lithuanian commonwealth had mandates from God since they were elected. Although that does not work with your dynastic requirement. Anyone cares to comment?

In my not so humble opinion, there are no un-biased sources. But if the bias is clearly stated it allows for the document to be worthwhile. Deception of bias masking as unbiased is a very large problem -- especially if the author does not realise their own bias!
