It's a joke
@Weird Porn Stash, response....
No your are a joke
Ur a towel
@Weird Porn Stash, question..
I'm a what now
Our great ancestors were way more intelligent then we give them credit for. We think of technology so narrow minded that we refuse to accept we are not the most intelligent. Ancient people tacked stars and planets before we could even see them. They built building that would be hard for us to replicate today. Some even disappeared without a trace. What if we are merely the species left behind while another left this planet. We know so little about our past. About this planets past.
@Implicit88, Everything We study about is ancient, think about all the greek philosophers, musicians, artists, scientists, physicians. We base everything we know today on their work. Genius like Tesla, musician like Beethoven and poet like Shakespeare doesn't exist anymore
@Fearless Fapper, there are geniuses today, most don't get real recognition till long after they're dead
@HSA, that's not true, most scientists and physicians got Nobel prices while they were alive, Shakespeare had a huge reputation, greek philosopher were considered demigod, musicians were a national pride. No not everyone got what they deserved, but the most known genius were already popular when they were alive. I know there's still intelligent people today, but they base their knowledge on the deceased genius. When is the last time we had a Da Vinci or a Darwin. Nobody in our era shocked the world like them
If the Church weren't responsible for the university system, the scientific method, Mendelian genetics, the Copernican model, and the Big Bang theory, this would make a lot more sense.
@Toad, Except the the scientific method was created by the ancient Muslims and the Church originally refused to accept the Copernican model, but you are correct on 3/5
@TriangleTesticles, didn't the muslims steal it from the Indians like they did with math?
@Toad, but he threw those books back that would've explained such things anyway, right?
@Toad, I've always disagreed when people say the world would be better without religion. I think it's both true, and false. When it comes to our history, religion plays a large, and very important role on how it shaped us. Though in today's modern world, I don't see religion as a necessity, and unless it's followers are benign, I see it as more of a danger. Example: radical Islam.
@Toad, I think it's more of a nod to the dark ages , and the oppression religion had on scientific advancement
@Baby Cthulhu, the you cant really say its either. It falls more into the unknown. Religion did play a huge part in the suppression of science, so the world by all rights could have been unimaginably different if religion wasnt around. But i agree that today religion is more of a danger with such fanatics willing to kill in the name of their religion.
@Toad, BROTHERS RELIGION ONLY DIVIDES US!!!
@TriangleTesticles, you mean Father Copernicus's model, which was dedicated to Pope Paul III, and funded by his uncle, the Bishop of Warmia?
@swampbutt, the Church saved science during the "dark ages" (a term that historians no longer use, in recognition of the many advances during the time).
@Toad, they don't use it anymore? Well I'm no historian so I'm kicking it old school!
@Toad, It's referring how the church only allowed a select few to be educated, while also denying any scientific finding that went against the bible
@Toad, They also kept advancement from the masses because they thought they couldn't handle it.
@Baby Cthulhu, No, What you should fear is radical ideology in general. Hitler didn't need God to hate the Jews, and Stalin and Pol sure as hell didn't either to do their terror. If the world would adopt a individualist ideal, in the sense that my rights end as soon as they affect yours, then I believe we will continue to have radicalism regardless of religion. A good example is sovereign citizens, they are a threat to police with radical ideologies not based in religion. Another is anti-fa, pretty radical group of people with no bases in religion but in bad ideology.
@Toad, while they sponsored persons who did develop such things, arguing about the nature of the trinity doesn't make new medicines
@TriangleTesticles, "if the church"... "scientific method... Muslims"
So in your world the Muslims weren't part of a church?
@TriangleTesticles, the modern Scientific method was created by Luis Pasteur to prove that small lifeforms couldn't just pop out of nowhere.
@Baby Cthulhu, I think you were serious, but that could have been really epic. I don't think there is anyone politically or religiously who wouldn't be offended by some part of that, it may be the best bait ever
@Toad, for me, Religion is bullshjt, a huge snowball effect over the time, kept alive by religious to make money over stupid peoples.
@Smo Queed, how did the caveman know how to read them tho??
@Autismo, hitler promoted Christianity while it widely believed he was atheist he used a lot of Christian propaganda to appeal to a primarily Christian country.
@Autismo, but I see your point the issue I see with religion is the blind unification power of it.
@TriangleTesticles, false. The scientific method was a product of Greek philosophy, with Socrates and Aristotle being notable figures in its development. Muslims rediscovered it after the Dark Ages, but it didn't actually originate from them.
@Masta Roshi, the Indians were Muslims dude
@TheBigQ, some were but the ones with the math and scientific theory's were Hindu
@Toad, *reads* "ah" *downvotes and moves on before talking to butt hurt religious people *
WELL AS A CHRISTIAN this is still flip flopping hilarious
This is genius.
He keeps throwing the same book over and over...
A lot of those books had things that were either designed by ancient people or wouldn't be useful until they had the tools to do anything about them. Also pagan religions would stay alive and people would be sacrificing their kids for good winds.
@Laika the Space Dog, not necessarily. Most Pagan faiths were very similar with as you can see with the type of gods in Greco-Roman civilization, and the Germanic people, and with roughly similar traditions and celebrations. Most of the sacrifices were just in the mythology of the people. The groups that indeed sacrificed their children for good winds would die out like they did in our time, but with a more Pagan (Thor, Odin) Europe, than a Christian one.
@Baby Cthulhu, The good winds example I'm talking about is from the Iliad when the dude sacrificed his daughter. Hellenism didn't die out, it was made illegal after like 100 years of Christianity being made legal. It's why the empire got weaker, the emperor was no longer a god when they made Christianity the main religion. Hellenism wouldn't have died if a few emperors hadn't converted.
That's pretty funny.
Did i see a sonic level?
Soiled it! Soiled it! Soiled it!
