Please don't flame. I've been reading in the political forums a lot the past few days, and I just find that religion causes some people to be extremely narrow minded. Especially Christianity. I went to a Catholic elementary school and high school so I get a little bit. I just can't help but think every time in history where religion plays a bigger role then scientific thought, nothing really important happens. It's almost like religion causes backwardness. The Greeks had a lot of good ideas, but then Christianity took over, nothing really important happened for a millennium or so, and then we had the renaissance and lots of good things were discovered, and lots of those things clashed with biblical teachings, but they were right. I just think it's no big coincidence that when religion doesn't influence people more gets done.
