Science by Darkman140 Science by Darkman140
Pretty much.

Some are to say the first scientist was Galileo, or others, the earliest i found was named

Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham

Born in 965, in Egypt

The long-named motherfucker studied light and vision trying to test his hypotesis that "lights and colors do not blend in the air"

He conducted experiments during 10 years, but then he was stripped of his possesions and judged as a madman in Cairo, imprisoned by the rest of his life.

Surprisingly, his imprisonement cause a massive scientific revolution, being held back only when the church took over.

Guess the message his life carried out here is

"Think about your actions and who you are, do science, and speak your mind"

You never know, your actions can cause important revolutions/outrages like these.

...unless you're religious, then stfu.

I don't like it. Why is Thomas Edison there? He wasn't scientist , he was nothing more but good banker who knew how to exploit people. Nikola Tesla should be there.

Awesome. Using a traditional religious setting to promote the opposite of religion. Couldn't have been better

Well, filling in gaps. Never going to be able to prove one way or another completely. (Quoting Hawking on that one somewhat), but yeah, I get the picture.

Einstein was religious-but to a small point. He believed in a god, but not to a point where he went to church everyday. I believe he worshiped a 'Nature God' of some kind.

best to leave religion out of science, it has been holding it back since always. religion has no helpfull input in the scientific methods. ofcourse everyone HAS to have freedom of relegion but we have to understand they're different things.
likewise with church and state, relegion musn't put it's laws on other things. u know? :T

Always, except ironically the dark ages, when nobody outside the clergy bothered with science. Sure it didn't progress much, but were lucky humanity survived that period and it wouldn't have been possible without the church.

the dark ages are sometimes called "The dark ages of scientific repression" though. How did the church help humanity in that period?

That is an incorrect way of naming it, though it's very popular to invoke that in anti-religious arguments. The dark ages are a 300 year period somewhere between the fall of the Roman empire and the 10th century, best known for social and economical decline, caused by both the fall of the empire and the global climate change caused by the eruption of the Krakatau. Science naturally did not progress in that era, because people were too busy trying to survive. It was the existence of the church and common belief in a higher power that helped people retain their humanity.

Modern science was just starting in the dark ages, but was constantly denied by the church because it was contradicting.
Copernicus is a great example but it happened everywhere.
The church didn't help people, it Caused the dark ages.
nobody was helped or cured of all the diseases at the time because they trusted god and the church, and just didn't do anything about it. Everything was dictated by the church and the progress of science was held back. that's why they're called "the dark ages of scientific repression". Ofcourse circumstances weren't ideal but the church defenitely didn't help. Humanity is something a civilization provides not a church.

Well if that's what you want to believe, i can't stop you. You're not the first person i recommend studying the history of religion, and like all other people before you, you're going to refuse because you apparently know better than the many historians who actually researched the subject.

It's sad, really. For over 6 years I've been looking for the person who will convince me that atheism is not bred from ignorance. All the atheists i encountered since then just ended up proving me right. I'm just about to give up.

Ofcourse i'm not ignorant i'm just telling what i think. Isn't that what you are doing aswell? Its just what i understand of the dark ages. I actually I don't know enough about it to have a discussion about, but I'd still like to hear how/in what ways the church helped people in the dark ages?

Hm, let me see. I said this motivational is stupid on several levels, and I insulted atheists. If by your definition, those are signs of mental instability, then yes. Unfortunately, it's not a widespread definition, at least, making fun of atheists isn't classified as a mental illness by medical books. So I guess no.

Last time I checked, mental retardation is a disability of the human brain. The phrase took on as an insult since.....mental retardation has been possible.

I think it's appropriate to call someone "mentally retarded" as an insult if they're believing crap out of a book that has been not been proven to be reality, while the concept of Evolution has been a clear proven observation. These people don't have a big enough capacity to accept science as REALITY.

Indeed! ^^ Most of my family believe in Darwinism, too, as well as God. Science does not prove God wrong in anyway. If anything, it strengthens belief that some force has to be behind this amazing world. :)

I don't want to bother anybody here but,
if you look deep into darwinism and relegion then they will collide on many, if not almost all aspects.
so people who believe in both(actually you can't "believe"in science) haven't looked at them closely enough, i'd say.
please respond, i want to know how you think tyey can go together.
(sorry for the year delay, i just found this :P)

I know this is an old comment, but I'll try answering it.

Darwin's evolutionary theory was at no point at odds with anybody's religious beliefs, it's at odds with creationism only, which is a much more modern invention than most people believe.

The point of any religion, or Christianity at least, isn't, and never has been "believe all this unlikely stuff written in this book here, or you go to hell". It's more along the line of "let me tell you an interesting and easy to memorize story with extraordinary and fantastic elements that may or may not havr actually taken place, to illustrate my thoughts on the meaning of life, the universe and everything".

Much of the Genesis isn't about you having to take every detail literally. The seven day creation for example is nothing more than a narrative convention. Makes the story easier to memorize when you can't write it down.

All winners....it's just a shock that Charlie Sheen isn't in this picture.
He can cure severe addiction in minutes with his mind.
I had to go through years of hard rehabilitation and recovery.
Charlie Sheen deserves the prestigious Copley Medal for his breakthrough in this field...or not.
Definitely not.

You know, with all this talk of suicidal extremists being MARTYRS...
Abu Ali al-Hasan ibn al-Hasan ibn al-Haytham is the REAL DEAL.
His work has led to millions of lives saved.
THAT is the real definition of Martyr, not some half-cocked punk blowing his stupid ass up for the promise of 72 virgins in paradise.

Shouting that in the middle of Iran would be pretty awesome.

To me, i think it's normal that all of this ignorance is going around, humans and every other intelligent species out there go through evolution, both biological, and evolution in society.

My grandfather used to say that when there are too many male humans war is inevitable.
He likened the human race to a pheasant hunt.
As a boy, he was paid as a thrasher, someone to scare the birds into flying so they could be shot.
When there was a male, he would yell "Cocks up".
You got paid extra for flushing a male out of it's hiding spot.
The reason for this is simple.
A male can impregnate MANY females, so if you want to control a population it's more important to wipe them out.

War is just humanity's version of saying "cocks up" he said.
He, and I, believe that war is a part of our very NATURE.
So is xenophobia, we can UNLEARN it, we can fight our incorrect impulses, but a lot of us never do.
Don't know whether we are BORN with this xenophobic leaning, but, as the news shows...we certainly pick it up quickly.
