  1. Religion existed before our era. However, there was no problem in Greece to ignore or deny it. Therefore, few of the ancient philosophers were not a critic of the religious views of their time, or did not invent their own religion. With the advent of Christianity, however, came the blind dogmatism, and approval, for example, the many worlds (now generally accepted concept) could cater to the stake like Giordano Bruno; of course, this is not the only thing that burned it down, there were still other differences in religious views, which in Antiquity, again, he would be nothing.

  2. There's a bit of an error in the start statement. They were not the smartest, but the most outstanding.

    That is, if in a society where the majority of people are peasants, warriors, slaves or workers, a scientist appears – then this is wow, he is obviously three heads higher.

    And now, well, with some Archimedes is unlikely, but with Plato personally I could discuss on equal terms. But the point of bragging about it is if there is some Vasily Ivanovich who lives in the next house, who is also capable of this, and on the next street – so in general, Doctor of historical Sciences Yakov Iosifovich, who will put all three of us together with Plato in the belt.

    That is, the more a society develops, the higher its “average level”, and the more difficult it is to stand out from it, the more imperceptibly it happens.

  3. Religions have always existed as long as man has existed. Moreover, ancient religions were much more developed and universal teachings than modern ones. They included many sciences. The sages and philosophers of antiquity were simply familiar with these ancient religions and agreed with some things.
