Dude that's ridiculous. You've got 3 examples, what about the massive amount of science etc which got developed nps? How are these things being dragged kicking and screaming? The scholarly monks, schools and colleges set up by the church. The enlightenment. Descartes, Newton.(Original post by michaelhaych)
And this modern world was in no way due to Christianity. The church has to be dragged kicking and screaming into a world of acceptance and tolerance. A world which it claims to monopolize.
Need I mention the Galileo affair? The strong rejection of Evolution? The age of the Universe?
Some christians even believe that Dinosaur bones were placed in the ground by God to test our faith.
It's clear to say that any advancement in Europe can in no way be attributed to the religious affiliation of the advancers.
