- Judaism founded somewhere in the Middle East
- Judaism proliferates, spreads around Mediterranean sea.
- Christ born in Middle East
- Converts people to a new religion, with a new law transcending the Law of Moses, dies.
- Other missionaries spread it, especially Paul, who goes on three famous missions, chiefly in Macedonia, Asia (what we now call Turkey), Greece, and Rome.
- A couple hundred years pass, Christianity very much in the minority, Rome's state religion is Roman Paganism.
- Constantine is leader of Rome, converts it to Christianity.
- Rome falls, but Christianity persists, spreads throughout feudal Europe.
- Europe ascends and stuff.
- Europe colonizes the rest of the world, taking Christianity with it.
- U.S. break off of Europe, keeping Christianity around. (To this day, even. Over fifty percent of American voters say they would not vote for a non-Christian)
