Predating christianity

The Dead Sea Scrolls were most likely written by the Essenes during the period from about 200 B. The enemies of the Qumran community were called the "Sons of Darkness"; they called themselves the "Sons of Light," "the poor," and members of "the Way." They thought of themselves as "the holy ones," who lived in "the house of holiness," because "the Holy Spirit" dwelt with them.

Like Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud did not base psychoanalysis, which he championed to the entire Western world, on scientific premises.

When psychoanalysis came to America, it was largely viewed as an unproven system of thought.

In the 5th and 6th centuries Pagan peoples the Saxons, Angles and Jutes from Germany and Denmark invaded southern and eastern England and gradually conquered most of England.

However Christianity continued to thrive in Wales and by the early 5th century it spread to Ireland.

So persecution ended and during the 4th century Christianity became widespread in England.

In 314 three British bishops attended a church council in Arles in France, Eborius bishop of York, Restitutus bishop of London and Adelius bishop of Caerleon (Gwent).

The first evidence of Christianity in what is now England is from the late 2nd century AD. The Romans too were polytheists and they were willing to allow the Celts to worship their old gods.

(There may have been Christians in Britain before then, we cannot be sure). Merchants from all over the empire settled there and soldiers from many countries served there so we will never know who first introduced Christianity to Britain. However the Romans were not tolerant of Christianity. St Alban the first British Christian martyr was executed in a town called Verulamium in 304 AD.

This means that even though these claims have been addressed, Menj can do no better than simply repeat poor and unsound arguments.

We repeat the relevant excerpts from my response to Nisar, yet with slight modifications.

The mostly fragmented texts, are numbered according to the cave that they came out of.
