    Best answer: We'd be speaking Latin, darling, though with what sort of accent is anyone's guess.

    Little Donnie wouldn't look like much in a toga (and his Latin would lack polish to say the least), but Mitt Romney might be able to carry one off beautifully.

  • Jewish people were the people who wrote ancient "Greece" philosophy and science? How much of ancient Greece history is fabricated?

    Isn't most of ancient Greece history fabricated by historians and jews? Any person who could write back in the 200 A.D. could write a bunch of lies and if historians found the writings of liars the historians would pass off those lies as the truth. Most jews could write, most gentile people could not. Most historical texts have a very questionable provenance in that they are "found" 500 to 1500 years after they were supposedly written and no one really knows who wrote them and any person who could write back in 200 A.D. could have wrote it to manipulate.
