I think religion has inspired many great works of art. Buildings, paintings, sculptures and music were all heavily influenced by religion. Plus Leonardo da Vinci, one of the greatest minds in human history, painted the last supper, one of the most iconic Christian images in the world. So this whole religion vs. science debate is pretty foolish. Also, architecture is not only for functionality, but also for its beauty, while a space station is purely functionality. Your post is stupid and you should feel stupid.

>implying that science isnt applied behind the structures of holy buildings

if they are holy buildings then its a bit obvious that they were built for one main use

have you been living under a rock or something?

Science was used to create those religious buildings.

the view that religion and science are diametrically-opposed entities that are in direct competition is such a ******* retarded one - they're not ******* sports teams where you choose to support one and unequivocally hate the other. What do you think any educated priest or rabbi says when they see someone cured of cancer against the odds? they give thanks for the brilliance that is medical science and praise the researchers who developed the cure; people like OP seem to have this idea that they fall to their knees and immediately praise Jesus for his mercy. Stupid, **** cancerous content. OP is worse than a fag; he is ignorant as **** .

So are you implying that only religion constructed that building? That they prayed it into existence? You are truly an idiot then. Science was used to build that building too, they had to do measurements and construction. Just because a building was built for religious purposes doesn't mean there wasn't any science or math involved.

You represent your ideology rather poorly and are a disgraceful human being.

If you consider what we know now and the technology that is available compared to what they had back then ... the work done back then was far more impressive. There are architectural feats (espicially by Bramante) that the finest architects today are puzzled with the methods of their construction and design.

So yea .. no.
User avatar #195 - xenoquack (03/04/2013) [-]
I'd say they're both pretty impressive.

eh. not sure if it is just me but I would be much more impressed walking the halls of the vatican. that's history right there. Some of the best art you will ever see, ever. Also, the architecture is amazing.

But religion didn't make it. Good guy science made it for religious purposes.

Well, to be honest, some of their Architechts are quite good. And some of their work is dare i say superb.

But nothing matches the work of a Techpriest.

Fun Fact: Religion has not created any building...man did.
User avatar #59 - Hreidmar (03/04/2013) [-]
Could we just agree that they both look pretty damn good and both are very impressive structures?

This comparison is like comparing apples to Mahler's symphonies.

Which religion was the Great Wall of China built in the name of?
User avatar #150 to #141 - nockae (03/04/2013) [-]
Not everything built that looks nice was built in the name of a religion.
User avatar #159 to #150 - mollycoddle (03/04/2013) [-]
But the content says "Religion has made the greatest structures in the history of Man"
I.e. The greatest structures in the world were made in the name of religion.
The Great Wall of China is clearly the best.
User avatar #162 to #159 - nockae (03/04/2013) [-]
Well I have to disagree with you there, but I do agree that "Religion has made the greatest structures in the history of Man" is a false statement.

There are also a lot of skyscrapers I love, Venice during it's prime was pretty awesome. And the Pyramids when they were first built was a huge feet of engineering.

Are you ******* kidding me? No, no, tell you what. You get me a source for that information and I shall find some to support my own side. If you give me more sources than I give you, I shall believe you, sound good?
User avatar #209 to #33 - zorororonoa (03/04/2013) [-]
they got payed to do it, the pyramid construction projects happened during the less fertile seasons, so farmers and laborers who had nothing to do got payed to build them. also, it was considered a great honor to help the pharaoh with his projects because they thought they were doing the gods will, thus giving them a better afterlife, so, in a sense, they wanted to.
User avatar #239 to #209 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/04/2013) [-]
Care to give me a link to that?
User avatar #252 to #239 - imakejewburgers (03/04/2013) [-]
Grow the **** up. If you want to be so stupid go ahead. It's common knowledge that slaves didn't build the pyramids. If you actually want to grow past your 70 point IQ go to google and do your own ******* research.
User avatar #334 to #252 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/04/2013) [-]
Okay, because you give me no evidence (something that would take 5 seconds) I shall assume there is none and that you're butthurt because you're wrong. Nice debating with you, don't act like such a pussy the nice time you lose

In a debate, when you want to prove someone wrong, you just don't blurt out nonsense, you give them evidence as to WHY they're wrong. You want to prove something? The onus of proof is on you, simple as that
User avatar #337 to #334 - imakejewburgers (03/05/2013) [-]
I'm not trying to prove anything. It's not my fault you are unaware of something considered common knowledge. I don't care if you would rather stay ignorant.
User avatar #338 to #337 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/05/2013) [-]
Yes you are, otherwise you wouldn't have commented in the first place
User avatar #339 to #338 - imakejewburgers (03/05/2013) [-]
No, I am in fact not. If I was trying to prove something I would have provided some source. I was simply stating a fact. So long as I provided the information I could care less whether you choose to accept it or not.
User avatar #341 to #339 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/05/2013) [-]
You're still talking to me, you're OBVIOUSLY trying to prove something. And you obviously care, again, otherwise you wouldn't have gotten so upset when I asked for evidence. Seriously, you're just digging yourself into a hole
User avatar #342 to #341 - imakejewburgers (03/05/2013) [-]
I don't care whether you do or do not have some basic knowledge about the construction of the pyramids. What I do care about however is when stupid people demand proof that something is true because they think it's false. You immediately began acting like an ass, challenging me to find more evidence for something than you could find against it. I care about that. I care about you being an ignorant ass that is to ******* lazy to go to google, type in a dozen words, and educate yourself. I do not care if you choose to remain ignorant, I care that you choose to remain ignorant and demand that I educate you.
User avatar #345 to #342 - captainfuckitall ONLINE (03/05/2013) [-]
If it's true, then you'll have absolutely no problem providing proof. Truth isn't afraid to be questioned, after-all. What do you mean "more" evidence? You didn't give me any at ALL, you just said you were right and insulted me, I'm not the one acting like an ass here. I like how you're upset at me for doing the exact same thing you're doing (not looking up evidence)
User avatar #347 to #345 - imakejewburgers (03/05/2013) [-]
I know it's hard for the mentally challenged to read, but you really have to make an effort. If you reread my comment you will see that it was a reference of your comment number 33. You challenged me to find more evidence supporting my statement than you could find disproving it. And I know it is also very difficult for special needs people to understand a linear time path, but if you concentrate real hard you'll be able to see that you initiated conversation between us in a rude manner.

You mean religion as a whole? All 27,000 (roughly) different religions that have occupied this planet since man started worshipping the moon? Or are you just referring to a select few popular religions (christianity, judaism, islam, ect)?

Yeah we could have crosses and other cool **** all over the next scientific achievement.

You know religion was responsible for the extreme curve of early civilization, right? In ancient Mesopotamia (One of the first civilizations if not THEE first) temple building and worship is what spurred the people to make new and better things, sky-rocketing technological advancement and engineering

But you could just pay no mind to that, that's okay too

what use other than being pretty does the Vatican cathedral have?
User avatar #311 to #308 - evolutionz (03/04/2013) [-]
Its not about the most useful building, its about the greatest.

And the St.Peters Church is much greater than this space station.
#325 to #311 - comanderspy (03/04/2013) [-]
what do you have in mind when you say 'great'. because those ******* buildings have no purpose... NONE

a great building should have aesthetic and practical beauty. like this building in the North Carolina Central U. people go there to study the sciences of engineering, architecture, and others. and its looks are not just for looking since they also help keep the place cool in the hot days and warm in the cold nights.

the vantican.... just looks pretty and people go there to talk to themselves on their heads.

Christians: 0
Science: 1
#328 to #325 - ragingflamingos (03/04/2013) [-]
The beauty of the Vatican is supposed to serve as both a testament to power and as inspiration to those who see it. Also over time the Vatican has become useful as a historical/artistic teaching tool. Just because the practical purpose isn't directly obvious doesn't mean it isn't there.
User avatar #333 to #328 - theasguard (03/04/2013) [-]
Now this is a good argument, thank you for actually putting effort into it, unlike that "evolutionz" d-bag.
And I agree with you, it does have it's own form of greatness, people need to look at both sides to the argument before actually considering which is greater.
I personally would say the space station but that is because I believe the science being done there is greater than the symbolism that the Vatican is. Again that is just my opinion.
User avatar #330 to #328 - comanderspy (03/04/2013) [-]
well, yeah... i know that those buildings now server as a place of inspiration and possibly historic learning, but this faggot is just dissing every other building ever saying that just for the fact of being that the vatican is better

To start, YOU called all Americans fags, so trying to call me out was pointless seeing as your opening post started name calling.    
Next, this has nothing to do with arguing. You are stating your opinion as fact, therefore arguing with you would be on par with arguing with a brick wall.   
Finally, I think you fail to understand that the most useful things are almost always the greatest. So you are actually wrong in your other post, as the the useful is about on par with the greatest.   
To end this I shall repeat, go jump out a window retard.
