Bruno was not a scientist. He was a mystic. And, as usual, you missed the point entirely. The point was that before the scientific revolution of the 17th century there were forces at work (and, yes, including the RCC) that were preventing progress and innovative thought.
Nanomind...seeing the world through religion colored glasses.
Right....THAT must be why Tyson featured him....BWAHAHahahahahahahaha.. ..

Giordano was no More of a mystic than Paul Davies, Piet Hut, Einstein, Fulford, Giobran or Greene are;...

...they have all made similar statements to Bruno's and are just as relevant regarding transcendent, free thought, unlike your sad lack of vision, Mr. Only Partially Gets The Logical Universe.

BTW, that church never prevented him from thinking and sharing his thoughts with others. He was killed *after* he shared. The church was wrong but it hasn't prevented us from advancing technologically like you claim it has. The "ideas" came when they did, and were revealed "when" they came. If Einstein had been born in 1016 that is when we would have had nuclear weapons in use. Being toxic as early as possible in man's rise does not have much of an esthetic appeal to me and probably not to many others either. Every Age has had its merits; the art alone made some worthy of admiration.

Maybe you expect chimps to advance at an unusually fast rate too? You are, unreasonably, blaming your mortified expectations on a source that was merely incidental, like peer pressure, during man's progress as a technological being.

There it is.

First, you had a sanctified marriage to her.

Next, you hit her.

Now, you continue to bash her.

http://tribuneherald.net/2013/06/26/texas-leg...
"Coming down to the final minute as Texas Lt. Governor David Dewhurst forced Sen. Wendy Davis to end her filibuster, the legislature was unable to pass a widely decried abortion bill. The legislature was able to accomplish another aspect of their pro-life agenda though, a ban on male masturbation. One Texas lawmaker joyously announced after the passing of the measure,“this marks a milestone for the pro-life movement! We must protect the unborn any way we can; I’m very proud that my fellow legislators voted to protect life, even in its earliest stages!”

According to your ideology, whether you are good or bad is irrelevant. Your deity will reward or torture people according to what they believe.

I don't choose evil, and yet according to Christianity unless I accept a story which has no evidence to support it that is irrelevant.

Any event or circumstance can be called a miracle, so without you asking about a specific event or circumstance, I could only answer your question with a very broad answer.
The simpler version is: "Shit happens."
These kinds of conversations can be entertaining and informative.
Christian: "God healed my wounds."
Skeptic: "I thought the doctor did that."
Christian: "But God made the doctor do it."
Skeptic: "The doctor was against it, but God talked him into it?"
Christian: "No, God just guided the doctor to his profession."
Skeptic: "Does he guide all doctors, or just yours, or just the doctors who work on Christians?"
Christian: "Um, he guides us all, to whatever we do."
Skeptic: "Including serial killers and rapists."
Christian: "Um, no, just like, um, no, just the good people."
Skeptic: "Why doesn't he guide the bad people like the good people, so they can be good people too?"
Christian: "I love Jesus."
Skeptic: "Fantastic."
:) funny, shit happens

when i saw a real Miracle last June 30, 2011, i don't consider it as "shit happens".:)

The idea that there are no atheists in foxholes underscores the idea that theistic belief is born of fear. It suggests that a rational man who, in a state of calm and over many years has concluded that there is probably no god, can be made to reverse himself when terrified and desperate. That's hardly an endorsement of a god belief.
"[That] there are no atheists in foxholes isn't an argument against atheism. It's an argument against foxholes.”- James Morrow
The "hole" sentence was a joke, moron.

If bullets were flying and the only cover was a foxhole, ideology, whether atheistic or not, would have no influence on the reflexive, defensive actions of the ones being shot at. Now try and explain the atheist in the hole. Hypocrite.
Foxholes have nothing to do religious belief. Your buddy Justin is a bent tool.

Like I said, foxholes are being phased out because most of our wars are offensive, not defensive. It says something about why the U.S. is so hated in the world. We need to let the resentful fks sink or swim on their own and see how long it takes them to start begging for something besides money.

I'm waiting for our politically correct, supreme leaders to call our military "assertive" not offensive. lol

Your understanding of the NOVA episode is as false as their presentation. Yes, I, a lone topix poster am saying that they're full of crap. Now it is true that the further back in history one tries to go, the more difficult it is to find corroborating artifacts, but that doesn't mean specific events didn't happen.
If you are talking about Exodus here you need to understand that the Sinai desert has been scoured by hundreds of archaeologists for a hundred plus years and absolutely nothing has been found....zero evidence, not just a little, but NONE.

Several Israel based archaeologists have openly declared (in Israel) that the sojourn in Egypt and the consequent Exodus never occurred.

This, along with the fact that Adam and Ever never existed, throws a seriously large monkey wrench into Christianities dogma.

The worse part is if you explain what they mean , it hand waived away and denied.
It is the Ideal Gas Law and just because I had a problem with ONE or TWO problems, does not mean I don't know what they mean; he got the answer wrong dude!!
