Has/Is Religion really a hinderance to science? What are the consequences?
Personally, I believe religion has always been a hinderance because religion always have been very unreasonable and thereby impossible to discuss things with, because everything was already settled.
Through time the church has hunted down scientists and people who believed in Darwin or back when they believed the Earth was flat and some said round.
What do you think the world would look like if religion hadn't existed?
Do you think religion is a result of primitivity?
That the human brain finds peace within rules and discipline -- that the only reason religion exist is due to these primitive needs to find irrelevant meaning?
Do you think religion today still is a hinderance to science?
Personally I believe that overall, there are more negative outcomes of religion than positive. I'd love to be proven wrong. Can you do that? (And the answer HAS to be open to discussion. NO MORE Religious "It's like that because I say so, and I won't believe otherwise and shut my ears to anything that contradicts me and the belief system I have chosen.")
