The history has been twisted to relegate religions from the higher rank, in order to rule in the world.
The earth is flat...this tag has been used by modern realist and rationalist against the religions that they are fake and misleading.
My point here is that it is the biggest twisted historical aspect of religions has been told to us. because The History is always twisted and turned.
For a minute, just try to memorize any even of your life and write it. after some time do it again and write it.... you would find that each time..your reminiscence about that event is changed a bit..or can be more. this exercise for your own reference. after doing it 3 or 4 times you would realize that you can remember anything 'most probable' from your won history.
Now, try to do it with a group of friends any event that you have shared together, e.g., a meeting, a conference etc. this time, you would found out that not even the event changes with person to person but also the reasons behind those event changes. Now if that event was linked to some crime or things like that, you would found out a wide change in the versions and suppose this whole stories from all the people involved is to be given to a jury to judge that event. Now, you would found entire different versions of stories.... One Event from different vantage point.
this Rohoman effect of all the observer about one event narrates different versions but equally plausible stories, brings out the conclusion that there was only illusion, that noone can reach to the exact kind of story..and only one can rely is on the 'Bhram'.
Now, if few people history is so much uncertain to decide how one can claim to have perfect history of human civilization collectively?
'The Earth is Flat' is that kind of historical twisted aspect that has been repeated to relegate the religions from their ranks.
A simple human reason, 'To Rule'.
