And the killings didnt stop after Rome became the catholic church either, they eventually killed more Christians than ever before, except their new reason was because the Christians wouldn't believe the whaky stuff that the Catholic Church believes, all this new stuff by the way is not in the bible (mary worship, priests, saints, popes, I could go on and on)

The thing that will really make you do a double take is when you realize that what the Illuminati was really doing with the Catholic Church is actually taking away the bible from the common man, (they said the masses in latin, they told people to only let the priests tell them what it said) they actually put it on the banned books list in the 1200's! many many people were burned alive during the inquisitions because they chose to believe these fragments of the bible that were still circulating and not the catholic church

No Im afraid you wont find any support for this idea in the real world, neither from atheists or theists.
Yes, I agree the christians had a strong philosophy of purity, devotion, love, forgivness, and understanding which threatened the whole power structure of rome. It's no surprise they kept it well hidden from the people for hundreds of years.

If the bible is really completely in tact (and id like to see your sources on this) does that mean it's all literally true? Perhaps there was secret knowledge they were hiding in metaphor so that these secrets couldn't be used by people with bad intent (and there is research to support this).

The disciples came to Him and asked, "Why do you speak to the people in parables?" (Matthew 13:10). Jesus answered, “. . .The knowledge of the secrets of the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. For this people's heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them'” (Matthew 13:11, 15)
