comment Why did religion mixed with politics hold back progress of Europeans but not the Turks?
While I tend to agree with your assumption that religion+politics is bad for progress, the relative differences between the Europeans and the Turks may have had more to do with the regional politics than religion per se...it's not like the Turks were leaps and bounds ahead.

comment Ancient Christianity
@Dan: The author is Rodney Stark who's made anti-evolution comments in the past. While the rise of religion is a different subject, if he's making unscientific comments in other areas, it makes me doubt his ability to present an unbiased evidence-based narrative.

comment Ancient Christianity
@AmericanLuke: I'm looking for a sociological/political explanation of why Christianity grew. While differences in religious practice could account for the appeal of Christianity, I personally doubt that was a huge reason because for instance Judaism and Christianity were very similar, yet the former didn't rise.
