"Christianity" has only existed for just under 2 thousand years, but
monotheistic believe has existed for just slightly more (about 5 thousand).
But polytheistic believes and belief in a "Mother Goddess" had existed
from 25,000 b.c.e. By exluding this from your possiblities of memes,
aren't you limiting your total experience by the most 'recent' of
theological ideologies?!

Just a thought!
