comment Why was the spread of Christianity scattered compared to other major religions?
If your hypothesis is correct, then it should be able to predict the growth of Islam, Judaism, and a few other non-national religions. Have you tested the hypothesis?

Your second question about Krushchev is probably good material for a new question.

Of course the opposite story occurred; the Jews marked the doors of their houses with blood to avoid punishment by God.

comment Recorded data on crime rates
What do you mean by "crime"? All crime? or Murder? There are many things that are criminal today that were not criminal then and vice versa.

revised Why did the NATO (help to) overthrow Kadhafi?
I tried to focus this on history (1) removed judgmental terms that aren't conducive to historical analysis (2) removed discussion of France because the question is about NATO (France could be a separate question).

comment Why did the NATO (help to) overthrow Kadhafi?
I think @CGCampbell's question is very relevant; if others agree, we may wish to close, edit and re-open to ensure answers are relevant. Could we revise this question to emphasize historical themes and downplay the implicit judgement of politics? I'm going to attempt an edit; if I get it wrong, please rollback.

There were abolition societies before the Constitution was finished. Aaron Burr and A. Hamilton were both members of the NY abolition society. Burr used to take his slaves to the meetings.

I see no record of such a massacre; is it possible that you refer to the Borisov massacre?
