They burned Galileo at the stake?

These Catholics and Protestants on the forum would like us to believe those in their religions were guided by divine love ... but according to historians, that is far from any truth.

Burning was also used by Roman Catholics and Protestants during the witch-hunts of Europe.

They do talk about that. But even you have to admit, science can only take us so far. It completely ignores the spiritual component of human beings. If it can't be proved in a science lab, they dismiss it as a theory at best.
I believe it is better to say that science ignores the supernatural component.

Yes, science looks for natural cause and effect. Science seeks to document through testing and observation.

We can accurately predict many thing based on science.

We can cure many diseases based on science.

We cannot do either with religion.

Speaking of boilerplate, protestantism reminds me of going to Old Country Buffet...it's cheap, easy, you have a thousand things to choose from, there's some really crappy stuff, and only a few good items, but you're in charge and if you don't like what you grab, you can spit if out and try something else.
Anthony I don't go to buffet's
I go directly to the Kings table where He has sat a banquet before me.
You are starving to death for spiritual food. because you don't know the difference between finger food and The food that God gives from heaven.

Human nature leaves much to be desired.

Indigenous North Americans often used burning as a form of execution, either against members of other tribes or against white settlers during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Roasting over a slow fire was a customary method.[5] See Captives in American Indian Wars.

Thank you, but I comprehend that I am only as honest and as kind as circumstances allow.

If push comes to shove, my will to survive will probably overrule all else. After all, I'm only human.

Starving Settlers in Jamestown Colony Resorted to Cannibalism

But as Owsley revealed along with lead archaeologist William Kelso today at a press conference at the National Museum of Natural History, we now have the first direct evidence of cannibalism at Jamestown, the oldest permanent English colony in the Americas.“Historians have gone back and forth on whether this sort of thing really happened there,” Owsley says.“Given these bones in a trash pit, all cut and chopped up, it's clear that this body was dismembered for consumption.”

My guess is, the French men suffering from scurvy probably believed their prayers were answered because "god" gave the information to Domagaya to give to them.

People that believe in a god, will always fit a god into the equation. It's often just the way it is.
>>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>> >>>>>>>

From the book … The Invasion Within … The Contest of Cultures in Colonial North America by James Axtell.

When a severe outbreak of land scurvy afflicted the ice-bound French, killing twenty-five and incapacitating all but a handful, Cartier leaned an image of the Virgin Mary against a tree a bowshot from the fort. On the following Sunday, the able-bodied fell into a solemn procession to the image, singing the seven Psalms of David and the Litany of All the Saints and praying to the Virgin to intercede with her son for compassion. After mass even the rugged seadog Cartier, who remained untouched by the scurvy, vowed to make a pilgrimage to our Lady of Rocamadour, a famous French shrine, if God returned him home safely. Because native psychology was still largely indecipherable to the French, this parade of invalids was clearly something they did not wish the Stadaconans to see. Ironically, it was the pagan Domagaya who brought salvation to the Christians by showing them the curative secret of white cedar.

He was tried and found guilty of "heresy" by the inquisition. He recanted to save his life, and was placed under arrest for the rest of his life.
Probably the only thing that saved his butt was that he had the support of the Jesuits, or he would have been tortured and made an example of.

"How about actually learning about something before posting about it?"

Did you read something different? Or are you just twisting the truth?

What else WOULD the catholic church say??? Of course they would say this. I was baptized and raised catholic. They HAVE to maintain with all their might that they are the only true church in order to hang onto as many faithful as possible. Faithful = money. Money = power and influence. I am not saying they are ALL about the money but it is interesting to me that catholics the world over are asked to give, give and give some more, yet we never hear that the Church "sold off this or that art treasure" to provide food for the poor, clothing for the needy, etc. etc.

They believed those they tortured and burned to death were evil offenders of GOD's holy word ... if you can imaging anything so ludicrous.
