Did I call Stewart a prophet?
Did I claim science as an atheist invention?
I dunno. Did he?
Did I say science has disproved a creator?
"All modern science was started and enabled by theists."
If that's true, then it happened in spite of them being theists, not because of it.
Anything else I can clear up for ya, Dave?
The earliest scientist's sought to confirm what clergy told them.
Then they only sought only to tell the truth about what they found.
Unfortunately some of them were punished for this and the truth was suppressed. The reason most were religious , is that all were religious, since 325 to 1900. There simply was no thought of atheism. So your saying in spite of being religious, is true but conditional.
The spite was something that had to be learned , and learn they did , so they formed the Illuminati out of fear and resentment.
But they eventually won, humans can only be suppressed but for so long. The cat finally got out the bag.
