Do you really believe that that's how things happened? A bunch of uncivilized atheist were sitting around wiping there asses with books, and then the religious folk came just in time to save the books? This may be the dumbest post I've ever read on this site lol.   Most of the people you refer to when you say barbarian were actually religious. Ghangas, Atilla, even Konan lol.   Jokes aside though, I wasn't trying to shit on Christians in my original post (thought that'd be obvious since I didn't even use the word). What I'm saying is that ALL beliefs based on anything other than reason/logic (ie. faith) really hold us back technologically. And I'm curious as to how much we've missed out on.

Essentially all scientist before 300 years ago were men. You don't think we've missed out on a lot of technological advancements due to sexism? I do.

Back when it was common for the churches to torture or kill heretics and nonbelievers, right?

If it wasn't for the church saving books and scrolls from barbarians using them for toilet paper, think how far back we'd be.

I really wonder how far the world has been set back by religion. Just in terms of technological advances alone. When you have groups of people talking down science, we've had to have at least lost the cure for cancer or something big like that.
