Yeah but to be fair Italy is mainly catholic which accepts evolution where as Americans are mostly dominated by protestants which are very devided by the issue.

The Protestant Reformation was the division of the Catholic church. Martin Luther and his followers were Catholics who decided that the people should be able to interpret the bible without the 'divine influence' of the Pope.

They are standing in PROTEST of the Roman Catholic Church. They are in fact and offshoot of Catholicism. Lutherans are also a Catholic denomination.

You need your history tution money back.
For the vast majority of history, religion held dominance and suppressed most types of advancement.

It's only the last few centuries, that religions couldn't suppress the people anymore. Keep in mind, that religion used to be an actual body of power, pre the renessance.

actually a great deal of scientific progress was ensured by the catholic church... They saved what they could from the libraries of Rome and funded the first Universities. It was only around the renaissance when certain scientific topics became taboo, but Medelev, a monk I believe... was one of the pioneers of evolutionary theory via his research into peas and independent assortment of genes, and Georges Lemaître, a Catholic priest, was part of the original group of scientists who put forward the idea of a big bang creating the universe.

We always hear about Galileo and Copernicus facing issue with the church... not often do we hear the other stories. That's because most of us don't actually study history, we study pop-culture and the media. The media likes to present certain narratives. The most predominant narrative at the moment happens to be one of an irreconcilable divide between faith and science.

So no, he doesn't need his history tuition back. I'd recommend you invest some tuition into it, though.

Oh and I'm atheist. You know, in case you think I'd have a religious bias here.

Actually most of the early scientists in Europe were catholic priests, actually the person who developed the theory of genetics, Gregor Mendel, was a Catholic priest.

Religion is sometimes used to oppress people and ideas but it's no different from when the rich/powerful oppress you with anything else. It's just that the church used to have more power, the actual religion is irrelevant.
Do you really think the crusades happened over ideology? Wars are fought for things, not ideas. Sometimes they're fought just so you can buy more weapons, but they almost never happen over ideas.

Right, the church wants to hold onto its power and things. If a group of scientists are disproving them, they lose power, then they lose things. So they discredit and punish any advancement in science to hold onto their power
