8th October 2009

“It is inherent in religion that it freezes the scientific understanding of its time into superstitious dogma. When it starts to unpick its dogma, as it was forced, eventually, about the sun revolving round the earth, the whole edifice starts to crumble.”

    Had there been no science interference, I bet Galileo would have been the first man on the moon!
    Oh the places we could go without that “perfect being”.

    About the crumbling; history shows -groan- they have weathered tougher storms than this.
    Religion beats down the masses. When it can squeeze no more from the suppressed, and an uprising starts, religion reluctantly rolls with it. Then it (unbelievably) claims credit for the great change; and apologetics show where the misinterpretations were and then they start all over again.

    Ironically, religion evolves better than Evolution itself.
    And it has the greatest marketing scheme ever devised.
    Coca Cola has nothing on these guys.
    As much as I’d love to see the ‘whole edifice start to crumble’, I think we’re a looooooooooong way from it.

    Anyone here see that “Family Guy” episode two weeks ago (Season 8, Ep. 1)? Brian and Stewie travel to another universe in which Christianity never existed, and in it our world is in the same year but a thousand years further advanced. Just compare Ancient Rome and Ancient China, and the technological progress that followed in the West that didn’t in the East. Religion does not advance.
