    They got flaming swords in Revelations just like the Aesir wield. I've read the book.

    The scientific community waited for empirical evidence? Shocking.

    At least Georges Lemaître was only scoffed at, and not placed under house arrest and banned in a Papal inquisition from teaching/writing, as Galileo was for the heretic proposition of a heliocentric universe.

    Because the church has all the answers. Proper science does not pretend to have all the answers.

    Good lad. But only One God not a plurality.

    Have a read of this.

    Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
    Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

    I like armour, and this stuff is stronger than Kevlar.

    Looking back, what I said was not entirely the point I wanted to make and did not encompass my overall view.

    The larger point is that religion is slowing down human progress. A world without religion does not pretend to know the answers. If we acknowledge what we do not know, we will become more intellectually driven to find the answers.

    Not only that, but the entire idea of accepting a religion as a guide for your life implies that you are content in believing that a story in an old book is unquestionable truth about the universe. I fail to see how having a society full of individuals that are happy with this premise is not an impediment to said society's evolution.

    Not unlike some exercise training manuals that are on the market, fortunately yours are not. Revelations is apocalyptic in nature, it is an unveiling of the end time events of this age. Sometimes when an author writes it is at a level beyond certain folk to comprehend, what I mean is some folk who do not have the discipline to study will fall away. Your training manuals are well written and constructed but require more than a cursory glance therefore it (Revelation) takes effort, which is the same principle you apply to Starting Strength.

    Galileo was not imprisoned for his heliocentric proposition (which he had no actual proof of at the time). He continued to make the claim without evidence anyway. It came to him in a dream, btw...not because of some great scientific insight.

    Galileo was actually imprisoned for his theology which was at odds with Rome. That's bad on its own merit, but it's got nothing to do with science. At all.

    But the guy who actually did prove the Heliocentric universe, Copernicus, was also a deeply religious man, and was even buried in a Cathedral. So was Isaac Newton, the guy who started classical physics and invented calculus. These guys weren't just passively religious. It was what drove them.

    So the idea that religious people are somehow incurious is ridiculous. Yes, there are a lot of people who say, "God did it. That's all I need to know". But their non-religious counterparts just say, "I don't know, and I don't care". Their lack of religion doesn't make them one bit more scientifically curious.

    How does this cryptic description of the end times in Revelation compare with the relatively straightforward account of creation in Genesis? Is that open to interpretation too?

    Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn!

    Behold: It is written!* There are worse wagers to lose than Pascal's. When Cthulhu awakes from his lifeless dreaming, and he lifts his incomprehensible countenance upon the unbelievers, they will wish they had been set adrift in the lake of fire.

    This might all be bullshit, but why take the chance, amirite? Submit!

    * It's right there at the top! Plus, it's in a book!

    OK, I'm going to get skewered for the Galileo "dream" thing. I don't know where that came from...but I'm blaming Neil Tyson Degrasse's Cosmos...

    Anyway, the point remains, he really didn't have proof to back up what he was saying, and he stepped way too deep into theology, which was what resulted in his house arrest.

    Wow. It is not as painful to agree with Simma as I dreaded.
