"catholics, and protestants alike, got togehter and agreed on the bible"
Luther founded Protestantism in the 16th century! Also, the Council of Nicea wasn't the final and only canonisation attempt, Marcion had done a similar thing beforehand, and others continued to use various bible versions afterwards. What we now call Orthodoxy, or Proto-Orthodox, are the ones that got together and voted on the books of the bible, from the hundreds that were on offer.
Do you know what the Church Fathers found when they went looking for the historical origins of Christianity in the 4th century? In some places they looked, they found god-man pagans such as Mithraists, and in others they found Gnostic Christians. When they found these people where they expected to find orthodox Christians, they tortured, silenced, imprisoned and killed them, and burnt their books ("Lost Christianities
" by Bart Ehrman, "Jesus Mysteries
" by Freke & Gandy [Book Review]
Early Christians did not know where Jesus was buried, where he died, whether he died on a tree or a cross (and some Christians even thought he survived, and Judas (Jesus' twin brother, by some accounts) was crucified instead). They didn't know when he was born (Christmas wasn't institutionalized for hundreds of years), and all todays' dates of Easter and Christmas were based on pagan festivals of natural revival ('Easter' is even the name of a pagan god). Christians had to use these dates because they didn't know, right from the start, anything about Jesus. That's why most the stories about Jesus are copies of older stories about Bacchua, Mithras, etc, re-written.
Early Christians called these pre-Christian stories Satanic anticipations because they worried them so much!
The truth is that Christianity was a re-write of older pagan myths, and thats why the orthodox Christians couldn't find any orthodox Christians when they went looking. Stemming from St. Paul, it was once big laughable mistake!
