Greekfag reporting in!

Epistemophobia = Episteme (greek for science) + Phobia (greek for fear)
Fear of science, not fear of knowledge. Although one leads to another it's not the same thing.

I agree, with it specifically being some stories. There are many that have a warped sense of justice, or antiquated morals.

Though for the record, I can think of many other religions that also have stories with valuable moral lessons, including religions that aren't widely practiced any longer, like the religion of ancient Greece.

If you don't have any original ideas or intellectual faculties, attack religion, it's sure to make you feel better.

Seriously, the guy who posted this should go speak to Francis Collins, Director of the National Institutes of Health and an Evangelic Christian; he leads to the Human Genome Project too. Or take a gander at Isaac Newton, Louis Pasteur, Freeman Dyson ect.

Only idiots say that there are no smart Christians, but you gotta admit that by this point it's pretty much a running joke.

Honestly I get equally as pissed at the "Atheists" who spends their days condescending on Christians or any other religious people in just the same matter as the Christians are.

Atheism has practically gone to the same point as Feminism when it comes to debate.

I'm an atheist and I like to debate about religion. Is it because I hate everyone? Or religion? Or Christianity specifically? No, it's because I'm ******* interested in religion. Yet everyone assumes that I must be some ******* when I do because of people who are just dicks about it. I know what you mean, and it sucks for people like me.

Now just change Christianity to school and it's perfect!

Yea, because Christianity and Science totally didn't flourish equally well during the Renaissance.

Well, if you forget about all the people who were being pursued and killed for their discoveries.
#203 to #165 - IamSofaKingdom (01/15/2013) [-]
Reform of the Catholic church, combinations of humanism and Christianity and many of the greatest minds working on a line between religion and human/scientific discovery. It was a period of growth for religion, science and the humanities (although a great deal of emphasis on discovering and expanding humanities). People are pursued and persecuted in every century. The fact is that both existed during this time and both flourished.   
   
Haters gonna hate. So many butt hurt anti-religion people on FJ.

I'm not anti-belief. I'm just anti-religion. I think most other FJ'ers agree, but I can only speak for myself.

As for what you said, it's irrelevant. Scientists existed in the Renaissance, as well as religious people, and indeed somecreating relations between the two, and religion only backed this up because they believed it could make people who believed in Enlightenment (yes, I know /the/ Enlightenment only happened a few centuries later) would join the Church. It's irrelevant because religion will always deny discoveries that proves them wrong, and given enough power, they will "make sure" people won't be spreading discoveries that proves, or suggests so, religion wrong.

TL;DR: Religious people were still epistimophobes (lol, spelled wrong) in the Reneissance.
User avatar #209 to #207 - IamSofaKingdom (01/16/2013) [-]
That argument didn't make sense because you argued about an unknown, future action (religion will always limit knowledge) that did not take place in that period and you completely ignored any and all religious figures at the time who encouraged the expansion of knowledge and reform, which was my argument.

If my argument was irrelevant (which it isn't) that would make yours even less relevant.
