Christians why did you burned library of Alexandria?

You destroyed biggest record of the history and knowledge of ancient times by burning the library. We could have learned so much from information documented there. It was biggest set back to the humanity.

Who gives you right to plunder and destroy things which are not accordance to your dumb book. Aren't you people nothing more than ruthless savages?



Read the history.

    Boy oh boy, best read up on your history and pan learning from some of the movies. The Library of Alexandria was destroyed about 48 years before Christ was born by Julius Caesar's forces. Caesar accidentally burned the library down when he set fire to his own ships to frustrate Achillas' attempt to limit his ability to communicate by sea during his escapades with Cleopatra etc.

    I suggest that you research it.

    The famed Library of Alexandria reportedly burned in 48 B.C., years before Christianity existed. It was burned supposedly as an accident when Julius Caesar ordered his ships burned in the harbor at Alexandria.

    I'm pretty sure all those Christians are dead. But, since you worship the devil, I'm sure you will have a chance to ask them when you are all in hell together.

    Or, you'll just rot in the ground and won't have the conscience to care anymore. So, win/win.

    In a nutshell: when pagan temples were outlawed, the Library of Alexandria - which included several pagan shrines or temples - was destroyed.

    None of the Christians living today had anything to do with that.

    Because knowledge and education is religion's biggest enemy.
