I have to ask you this one basic question: kentauros Jun 2016 #9
Doesn't and hasn't their religion shaped their culture? n/t Fix The Stupid Jun 2016 #11

Yes they do. kentauros Jun 2016 #26
And then religion modifies the culture. Throd Jun 2016 #29
The point -being- kentauros Jun 2016 #33
Culture isn't encased in amber, unaffected by outside influences that come later. Throd Jun 2016 #39
Then you are refusing to read -and- understand what I'm writing. kentauros Jun 2016 #40
There is no chronology if the are simultaneously evolving in concert with one another. Throd Jun 2016 #42
