No, but it is a bit of EVIDENCE when the mightiest empire
of the era
that has been persecuting Christians for over a century
does an about face and creates a state cult claiming Christ is God.
Even the atheist act like mention from an establishment vetted "historian" is more meaningful than the evident faith of thousands [if not millions] of nameless "commoner" type people. That is, the kind of Christians that got thrown to the lions for refusing to worship the emporer.
here's the core difference between Atheists and Born-Again Christians:
Atheists don't give a fuck what you do. They don't feel any need to force-feed their non-belief down everyone's throats. There's nothing to convert people to. They're not running around trying to add new rules and laws to make people recite the pledge of allegiance everyday say God Bless America every time you take a shit or sneeze.
Born-again fundamentalist Christians are always nosing into everyone's business, telling you you're going to hell if you don't believe their One True Way and forcing the word of the Bible down everyones throat. Worse yet, they get heavily involved in politics and thus start writing the word of God (as they see it) into law. They are convinced that they have a right (as ordained by God) to control what everyone does in their own bedroom or doctors office. They are universally unintelligent and incapable of independent thought.
Atheists may be irritating, but so what? They aren't really well-organized, they have zero political clout and are just regarded as a lunatic fringe group. They are generally individualistic, Libertarian people. Think about it: When's the last time an Atheist told you "I'M AN ATHEIST, AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO." Now when's the last time a bible thumping Christian told you "I'M A BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN AND YOU SHOULD BE TOO."
