Hurr durr, sience is de best ting in de wurld.


Why don't you stop being a pretentious faggot and realize that you're no better than those religious nuts you criticize every day, seeing how you contributed as much to society as them.

Do you have a neck beard? Given that around 40% of American scientists are outright theists, I think it's VERY likely that some of these discoveries had religious scientists behind them.

I don't have a problem with a religion myself, but I don't think that's a valid point.

I mean did them being religious contribute to their scientific discoveries?

Because normal religious people actually get alot of determination and drive out of their religious practices.

A few scientific discoveries have been found from religion, more specifically Islam.
The early stages of development of the embryo were discovered from verses of the Quran
"He makes you in the wombs of your mothers in stages, one after another, in three veils of darkness."
This is a translation from Arabic obviously, but before this verse was revealed we did not know the foetus developed in the womb.
in three veils of darkness."
may refer to: (l) the anterior abdominal wall; (2) the uterine wall; and (3) the amniochorionic membrane.

"Then We made the drop into a leech-like structure."
The word "alaqah" directly translates to leach or bloodsucker which is an appropriate description of the human embryo from days 7-24 when it clings to the uterus.

Also a lot of mathematics originated from Islam and the Arabs in particular, while Europe was still in the Dark ages.

Not sure about other religions myself but Islam has given contributed a lot for modern science to be where it is now, and it has done more than it is given credit for.

I can't possibly say, but for many people religion defines much of the self, the character; man religious people go into medicine, for instance, it's down to the individuals. But even Dawkins concedes the fact that the scientific method emerge out of a religious tradition.

Dawkins also said that religion had its role in human society and now we're past that.

That's ironically conservative thinking for an atheist, just because "intelligent" people believe that they can be happy without religion (which is perfectly okay) to say that religion has passed it's time with humanity is close to the concept of social darwinism that conservative capitalists like to spew. There will always be people for whom putting their trust in something other than themselves is a good thing, to say we're past that now is ridiculous.

By "we're past that," I/he meant that we're past the NEED for it that we once had. We're obviously not past seeing it in society.

You talking about his movie? I remember in the same scene he said religion would eventually destroy mankind. Talk what people say with a grain of salt.
