A theory doesn't have to be proven, it's just an idea of how something happened or will happen. The Evolution theory is just one theory of how man came to be.

The Dark Ages wasn't caused by Chrisitianity, it was caused by the destruction of the Roman Empire which set back economic, cultural, and scientific advancement for 1000 years.

It's more like the fact the Church persecuted anyone who questioned them and did anything remotely scientific.

uh, different anon here. if i may interject about this graph? you should note that the dominion of christianity was only in europe and its repression of scientific progress did not spread thruought the rest of the world. at the time, the only reigon advancing technologically was the middle east, and they were as religious as anyone else.

China was constantly at war with itself. People in mesoamerica were technologically advanced, but socially and philosophically primitive. Non-Islamic Africa wasn't doing shit.

So yeah. Also, you should note that the Romans spent a large portion of their existance as Catholics, and its not fair to ignore the fact that monks were the ones who preserved the scientific legacy of Europe during the dark ages. In fact, I think it was a German monk who laid the foundation for the science of genetics.

The graph is only meant to irritate annoying, Bible-bashing Christians: I know it isn't accurate.
#1741 to #1738 - anonymous (06/20/2012) [-]
I understand. They annoy me as much as anyone else, but I cant help but have my jimmies slightly rustled when I see things like this. I mean, I do believe in God but not in a bible-thumping, door-to-door missionary kind of way, so I try to present myself fairly and calmly. Thank you for not responding with insults.

But again, the graph is only meant to demonstrate the gap in technology left by the Church in Europe. Who knows how much more advanced we'd be if the Church hadn't of existed.
By the way, do you just believe in God, or do you like organised religion?
#1745 to #1743 - anonymous (06/20/2012) [-]
While it's true that if the Church had'nt existed, there would have been more advancment, it's also important to consider the political landscape of Europe at the time. Once the Romans were gone, the ultimate authority that regulated the indigenous people of Europe was, too. No more education, no more infrastructure, and most of all, no leigons to defend you and your family from roving hordes of barbarians (sounds like post-apocalyptia, right?) So of course people would be more concerned with staying alive without the Romans than with learning. Again, I'm not denying what the Church did, but its important to consider other factors.

And on the other note, I mostly believe just in God, but that doesn't mean there aren't good lessons to be taken from organized religious institutions. There are missions in Africa that provide housing and medecine all with Church money in places like the Congo, that's the kind of stuff im for: (Love thy neighbor, etc.) But..."storm the gates, God wills it"? Nothxbai.

Hmmm. You say that the legions were defending the citizens from the "barbarians", but the barbarians were just fellow citizens to the oppressed people of Europe.
