You are a stupid idiot that only relies on other stupid atheists scientists. More than likely, your ancestors were the dirty rotten disease ridden godless barbarians that rode hellbent across Europe.

The Myth:

They call it the Dark Ages for a reason. Any scientist who dared to actually study the universe would be shut down by the Catholic church, which thought all that bullshit was immoral and that the Bible was all the learnin' anybody could possibly need. They even thought the Earth was flat, for crying out loud.

"No, we can't cross the ocean there, don't you see that sea monster in the way?"

The Reality:

Aside from the fact that, as we've already explained, most people in the Middle Ages did not think the Earth was flat, the church wasn't responsible for killing science -- to the contrary, it was largely responsible for saving it.

After the barbarians invaded Europe and Rome went the way of the dinosaurs, the Catholic church was the last remaining aspect of Roman culture in Western Europe. The church went about setting up monasteries across Europe, and along with the monks came the monks' massive libraries. Monks were just about the only educated people in the early Middle Ages, and pretty much everything we know about this entire time period was written by them.

Getty
"Look, the monks' scroll clearly says that all monks had 12-inch dongs, so it must be true."

As time went on, the church stepped it up a notch and started establishing universities to foster the preservation of knowledge. You may have heard of a few of them: Oxford, Cambridge, and the University of Paris (not to mention pretty much every other top school in Europe). At these universities, students studied more than most college kids do today, with an average bachelor's degree taking up to seven years to earn, and a master's or doctorate taking several more. The universities were also big on translation, having successfully translated into Latin guys like Aristotle and Plato, which effectively made the Renaissance possible. All of this despite the fact that beer bong technology was still in its infancy.

Around the same time as universities were popping up all over Europe, the Crusades were bringing Europeans into contact with advanced Muslim ideas of science and technology. Ideas like the compass and the astrolabe came to the West via Muslim Spain and came in handy during the later Age of Exploration. Italian merchants came back from trading in North Africa and gave us another innovation: Arabic numerals.

Pfft, like people are going to want to learn a whole other set of characters.

Medicine also made massive advances thanks to the university system. Contrary to popular belief, dissection of corpses was actually fine and dandy with the church, and medieval universities often did it in the basement (OK, so maybe it wasn't totally fine and dandy). By the 14th century, there were functional hospitals, and doctors had learned how to use antiseptic when lopping off people's body parts.

Really?
God can make anything He wants to mean something to you.
What do you say about that?
Since God hasn't made anything that shows me he exists, then I guess he doesn't want to. Why would he create me then allow me to easily disbelieve he exists?

Why are all babies born atheists? Not one single baby is born with a belief in god already implanted. Why not? Because your God enjoys creating people then watching them squirm? Or because he's not that powerful?

Or because he doesn't exist?

You are a coward.
And you know you are a liar.
That is why you will not even honor your own words.
That is pathetic.
And God see's that you will not honor your own words ...even when you accuse me.
I stand by everything I post on topix as truth. I have no reason to lie.

Yes, as a soul is a man made concept just like your god. I do not fear fairy tales.

Even if I am wrong I do NOT fear being judged by a loving god for what I've done in life. I don't say I am god either.
