What if Christianity never existed?

What if Christianity never existed?
This is a valid what-if scenario I've been asking myself for the longest time.What if Christianity never existed,what if the Romans continued to persecute the Christians and never adopted Christianity as its state religion.How would our timeline play out?

Everyone would be for the most part would adopt the roman religion of multiple gods Europe the and Middle east would still be fighting over
different ideals of religion as they would have a different religion as well. The best outcome would be what if Judaism never existed that would
would remove the remove the underlying conflict of beliefs and christianity not to mention islam wouldn't exist.

I actually doubt islam would exist if christianity didn't as islam is heavily based on christianity, and the hindus are notably un-evangelical. Infact most pagan relgions are alot more tolerant then christianity was historically. Also bear in mind, the "they burn babies" was pretty much the go to line for ancient propaganda. So while a few did commit human sacrifice, the vast majority did not. Also on a very interesting note, those that did commit human sacrifice, it was considered an honor and was done by volunteers. These volunteers where then treated as heros. Not pretty, but prettier then the bloody verdict of verdun.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

RE: What if Christianity never existed?
A fun "what-if" question.  Book recommendation time.  God against the Gods, Jon Kirsch.  The culmination of the book is the dispute between Constantine and Julian, and how the consequences of that dispute would have left us, directly, with a strengthened paganism or a burgeoning christianity.  We all know which way it went...but assessing these two rulers does show us that the terrible picture christianity painted for the mire out of which it arose was entirely baseless.  The christian faction was not the faction of tolerance or peace or progress.  They did not rescue Rome or, indeed, the world...from savages intent on sacrificing their children to the gods.

Quote:Kirsch's controversial and illuminating new book demonstrates that, contrary to the conventional wisdom of Judaism, Christianity and Islam, religious liberty and diversity were core values of classical paganism -- and it was monotheism that introduced the terrors of true belief, including holy war, martyrdom, inquisitions, and crusades.
I am the Infantry. I am my country’s strength in war, her deterrent in peace. I am the heart of the fight… wherever, whenever. I carry America’s faith and honor against her enemies. I am the Queen of Battle. I am what my country expects me to be, the best trained Soldier in the world. In the race for victory, I am swift, determined, and courageous, armed with a fierce will to win. Never will I fail my country’s trust. Always I fight on…through the foe, to the objective, to triumph overall. If necessary, I will fight to my death. By my steadfast courage, I have won more than 200 years of freedom. I yield not to weakness, to hunger, to cowardice, to fatigue, to superior odds, For I am mentally tough, physically strong, and morally straight. I forsake not, my country, my mission, my comrades, my sacred duty. I am relentless. I am always there, now and forever. I AM THE INFANTRY! FOLLOW ME!
