comment When did waving become a part of human interaction?
Surprisingly, waving is a very primitive gesture. With children, this is often the very first visible sign of conscious communication. Child sees you waving and knows it should wave back. It happens long before any other gestures; before they can walk or speak. It happens even when child didn't observe other people waving at another, so it's not a learned skill.

I dont' know of any historical fact between 30 and 64 C.E. to warrant such numerical projection. Otherwise, your answer is more than correct.

comment Ancient Christianity
++1 although I find the "slow growth" not aligned with a known fact. A minor sect of a minor religion appeared in a very backward province; and about 35 years later the number of believers living in the distant capital, and the recognition by public over there, was enough to blame them of setting fire to the city. They were no nomads, they had no printing, no Internet. Just a plain face-to-face communication of actual sedentary people. The initial spread was amazing, and - to me - yet unexplained.

comment Why did the USSR preserve the national republics?
@FelixGoldberg My point was that even for such a hurried action (in the wake of Hiroshima), when there was no time for careful staging, Soviet Union didn't just hold the conquered land (which it could surely do). I argue that Soviet leadership eventually still felt obliged to give the land to some national government (of course as long as it was a socialist/communist government).
