consider the following. what if the deitiy some call god/allah/etc. made the world like a game of sims and is just seeing what we do by ourselves. but every once in a while he intervenes?is that not a decent theory? and maybe he made us curious creatures so that we would use science to discover more about us and the universe we live in?

But you see, religion was much more relevant when those amazing structures were built. Back then, the existence of deities/gods was the best way they had to explain how the universe works. People of every religion toiled for years in every corner of the globe to show appreciation for the forces of our universe, which they interpreted as god(s). Both of these structures are absolutely amazing, each in their own way.

One is designed to be beautiful and the other is designed to be functional. Comparing them doesn't make sense.

I mean architecturally wise, it's true. The greatest structures man has built until recent times have been related to worship/religious roles, or at least assumed to be so by archeologists. But anyways, point is this post is kind of dumb.

And you can confirm that religion did not influence anyone's work on science, much like how science made the intricate design of the religious building possible? I may be a non-believer, but some of you guys can be edgy as **** .

There is thousands of things that science created, millions in fact. Yet all religion does is just cause wars. ******* christian assholes

You're a ******* asshole... Christianity in most cases was there just to balance power, not to let a leader of a certain country get out of hand (not always). Yes it's pretty stupid that it had to be religion to do somethign like that... but it wasn't christianity that mind slaved the middle east, invaded the east successfully and planned and attempted to invade Europe countless times killing milling millions on their attempts only to set their ridiculous mind control faggotry. Don't come up with "oh but crusades this blabalbal" they were necessary in most cases, not for any religious purpose but to keep "mudslims" at bay.

You know, many people from my country blamed the former dictator, Ceausescu, for razing a part of the Old Historical Center to build the 2nd biggest itemsistrative building in the world, many people being forced into labor and the national debt went sky-high for this monstrous gargantuan...

...But we do have the 2nd biggest itemsistrative building in the world...

Tubes. Thats all the ISS is. Why not make something as cool as the base in Star Trek? Because there is still the problem of priorities of funding.

If the Star Trek starbase were created, i would be training for NASA as soon as possible.

Except that the Greeks used those buildings for law, because they though law was the highest calling of mankind. Catholic churches stole them because they looked nice.



So yeah, hooray for science.

Basilica a tribunal chamber of the king, but christians took it from Romans, and they used it for law and trade.

Religion has also made some of the greatest contributions to science, including the scientific method and the entirety of Astronomy
#40 to #23 - anonymous (03/04/2013) [-]
Except for the whole, killing everyone who argued against the earth being the center of the universe. And there being any doubt of the location of abrahamian heaven. And - you know what, it's just plain not true. Religion as a whole has a tenancy to argue against something that goes against it's beliefs until it's backed into a corner by the majority of society and forced to change.

The fact that the people who discovered the idea were religious is irrelevant considering the rest of their religion despised and denied the idea.

gotta appreciate the art work and detail put into the structures... however its the architect and the designers who built it with tax money... religion doesn't have anything to do with beautiful architect

I actually quite like religious buildings, not gonna lie. But yeah, science wins this one.

more like free labor

Both have their own appeal.

yep, because religion, and religion alone, builds cathedrals. The other day I built my buddy a house by praying ten hail marys.
