If the Jews never existed can you think of how wonderful the world would be?

The Roman Empire would probably not have fallen, there wouldn't have been any crusades or jihands, Christianity and Islam would never have been created. There wouldn't be anyone killing each other over who's sky daddy is better. (or at least a significant amount less)

And the worst books in the history of mankind would have never of been written, I am of course talking about the Torah, the Bible, and the Quran. Absolutely horrible reading material.

Yes I think it is safe to blame the Jews for a lot of the mishap in the world today...

    I think you're forgetting the fact that if it wasn't for the existence of Abrahamic faiths, we would've never reached these technological advancements.

    If it wasn't for Islam the scientific discoveries of the Muslim golden age (and they are A LOT) wouldn't have happened. While Europe was at the dark ages south of them were at their golden ages. After that, we got to the Renaissance in Europe, and eventually the Industrial Age, which was mostly done by Christian Europeans.

    You'd never know what would have happened. There's no "what if" in history, because the possibilities are endless.

    Religious wars waged by non-Abrahamic religions.

    Imagine the dirtiest downtown city street you can imagine, where there is no laws, little education, and rape, murder and prostitution discussed and carried out in public. That is what the WHOLE WORLD would have been like if it wasn't for religion. Also, the Bible is sacred to us Christians. If you don't like it, fine, but don't insult it. Same goes for the Qu'rah (For muslims) and the Torah (For Jews). By the way, you spelled "Quran" wrong. It's "Qu'ran".

    The Roman Empire would still have fallen, even if it had retained syncretic polytheism.

    What brought down the Roman Empire was that, due to the high-ranking Romans' ill-advised policy of deliberately concealing knowledge from ordinary people in order to prevent rebellion, the aqueducts fell into disrepair and the cities succumbed to water-borne diseases. Nobody was able to fix the water supplies; and there was nobody to whom they could have prayed to fix *that*.

    Right now I'm thinking how much better Yahoo Answers would be without attitudes like yours.

    Maybe you should search on 'The Jewish Contribution To World Civilisation' it might enlighten you a bit.

    Read the book "Jews, God and History" and that will give you a good basis for answering your question yourself.

    We wouldn't have had critical advances in modern technology and medicine if it wasn't for the contributions that allot of jews made to science. I could mention allot more but we basically all need each other in one way or another.
