BB, Uhhhh, you got me wrong. A mode is a scale. Major/minor didn't exist at the time. Then one day, some dude might have been like, "hell, I'm going to call the Mixolydian mode major, and then I can put flats and sharps in the key signature." Of course, that isn't exactly how it could have started, but that's the basic jist of it. I had quite a long discussion about this with thrashboy a while back if you remember that, haha, but truely, traditional classical music started like how I've said it. Thrashboy [I think] just goes off of unorthadox'ed jazz theory, which can combine anything...

YEa the devils interval. just it was tri-tones and augmented suspends
