This is reason 467 of why I Hate, Hate, Hate, religion. Fucking christians gypped us good.
Globalists? Do I win?
I think we attacked this ridiculous graph in one of the threads. Maybe it was the post something funny one.
But seriously, how do they measure scientific advancement? What about Native Americans? How come Christianity is blamed for them? Arabs were fighting the Crusades, shouldn't they have been inventing new gear to defeat the Christians?
Besides, it wasn't the Christian dark ages that did it. I read in a book that all the smart people decided to take their ball and go home by hiding out in some commune in Colorado. They were mad at Obama.
I wouldn't want a jet pack. An anti gravity belt would be much cooler.
How did we move from simple tools to machinery that did stuff on its own? It used to be you could tell what every part of an item did. When did it go to confusion as to the purpose of every element? Was it Babbage and the Eniac? Because I want to know the guy who figured out that next stage of technological evolution.
I'd say the Spinning Jenny was the first step towards that. So blame James Hargreaves.
Sorry, but I have to go with the Atari Jaguar.
Please, it's just another example of how Christianity saved our asses. If it weren't for the dark ages, we would have blown ourselves up with nukes 200 years ago.
John Galt was kind of a dick.
What units are represented by the Y axis on that graph and how do you tally the numerous scientific advancements into a numerical and plottable representation? Is a Hanging Garden worth 10 moon launches or what?
How do you explain societies largely unaffected by the Dark Ages, such as the Americas and Asia?
Thank you for repeating what I said in the second post in this thread.
He wasn't a dick. He just understood that the super bestest and smart people agree with one another about everything.
Christian theocracies were a defining feature of the Dark Ages, but religion didn't bring about that era in history. You can blame the fall of the Roman Empire for that.
That graph looks like a sweet skate ramp. afternoonquil should test it out for some #shredding.
Sorry I got distracted with your Kirk-esque opening rant there.
Being a practicing Christian sure didn't stop this guy from making strides in science:
In modern times religion does the most damage in impeding the life sciences. Christianity never stopped anybody from building a rocket. Christians fucking looooove building rockets.
Y axis. What is it?
Only because of the National Socialist who developed the vehicle he needed to get to the moon.
The nazis were christian.
How do they work?
Not this again. They weren't Christians, and they weren't not Christians. They were Nazis, and they used whatever it is they could to get their way. When it was opportune to seem Christians, that's what they did. When it wasn't, they weren't. They certainly weren't driven by Christian values. They were driven by Nationalist and Hitlerite values.
Don't insult the Nazis.
That's exactly what I said, the nazis were christian.
If you lived to be 500 years old, you'd probably be insane. Life would just be a blur because of our relative perception of time. The longer you live, the shorter a year seems in comparison to total amount of time that's already passed.
Is that why vampires are all such a bunch of weirdos?
