Are you kidding me.. You know NOTHING about this, wikipedia is one of the most unreliable sources there is.. This priest didn't come up with the expansion of the universe..

you browse the web trying to find something to comment to show there's a religious scientist. SO what if there is? That dosen't prove anything at all.


There's scientists that have molested and murdered people, does that make his beliefes correct?

Wikipedia is by far the greatest collection of knowledge on the internet, with ACCURACY.

People who say it's unreliable are just ridiculous..

Mendel was just studying inheritance patterns. He had no intention of relating it to religion. It was simply something he took notice of and tried to make sense of.

The difference is that in his time, studying something like inheritance patterns wasn't seen as an act against God. Now this distinction exists. If it's science it must be against religion. I never said I disagreed with you.

You sound like my old school teacher.

You're not worth my time, re-read what you just read. I've spotted about three logical errors. Shoo troll.

Just like religion, you have no legitimate proofs at all, just a dusty unreliable website (yes also the bible)

Yeah and the popes are saints and the crusades never happened

The skulls of many popes, bishops, and priests pave the roads of hell. Irrelevant comment.

So what? What kind of point are you trying to make here?
User avatar #24 to #23 - undereightyeight (12/08/2012) [-]
The point this comic is making is the church rejecting any and all scientific proof. My counterpoint is that it was actually the church and it's followers that came up with some of the brightest scientific discoveries known to man. Gregor Mendel for example.

It's a dilution thing: Many, many scientists during the Age of Enlightenment were of western, Christian origins. The fact many great scientists were religious is no more impressive that the majority of African Chieftains were black; it just happened that way through a multitude of social and historical factors.
Sir Isaac Newton was a fundamentalist Catholic. He revolutionized physics and (may have) invented Calculus. However, the man was ******* crazy; He stuck a needle in his eye for... Well, no one really knows why. That's why we focus on his Three Laws of Motion rather than Theological works.

I understand what you're saying completely. But I fail to understand why this comic decides it's okay to pick on religion when it was really responsible for laying the foundation for modern science (not necessarily just the religion, but the institution).
User avatar #76 to #49 - olibear (12/08/2012) [-]
It's not picking on religion. It's picking on what some people are like IN that religion. I know a guy through online gaming who is exactly like that. I'm okay with that, I'm not okay with the fact he is against homosexuality) There are other comics that do the same for Atheism.

Yes the Catholic church has many scientists working for them. Unfortunately 90% of these situations come from Christians and direct Christian denominations that reject the Catholic church and therefore reject the Vatican.
