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.

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.
Mother objective reality, nature bearing and rainbow riding magic unicorn, for you may magically remove all ignorant people if reason gets second place, Amen. ;)

Yet another atheist trying to monopolize science. A few more and maybe I'll be completely desemsitized to them.

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?
