then you go fuck off and live there!
i think the rest of us athiests will be quite happy living here in reality!
after you start dying of one of the many diseases that were around back then, then you can tell us how much you wish you lived then.

If it weren't for the dark ages we'd be exploring the galaxy right now, so I'd be glad if you decided to live back then so we can get to exploring it a little sooner.

So, you would be happier if you didn't have to use your brain, think for yourself? Join a live-in sect and you won't have to.

All people in the "dark ages" lived happily in certainty.
One wonders: Why was it necessary for the Catholic Church to institute the Inquisition? Perhaps there was much more (justified!) doubt in the official dogma than our naive fundie likes to see ...

You want to live in the 'Dark Ages'? Simple: Move to Afghanistan or any of the other Fundie Muslim countries.
Oh? You don't want it quite that dark. How dark, exactly? Medium dark? It is a tough decision like "How do you like your toast in the morning?"

How certain would you be when an angry neighbor accused you or being 'a witch' cause you had a stray mole, and everyone decided that you needed to be burned to death?

Die before you're 30.

And we'd be much happier if people like you had been left behind in the Dark Ages too.

Go live there...you'll change your tune when you're dying of a common cold. Certainty? In the friggin' Dark Ages?! That's a laugh! Back when diseases were supposedly caused by "demons" (Germs are some tiny little demons!)...and unusual people were accused of being witches--especially if they had cats? Back when people were guilty until proven innocent? Back when people lived in fear of the Inquisition? Back when society was based on fear, paranoia and control? Back when only a select few knew jack squat and were determined to keep the masses in the dark the better to control them (hence the name)? Certainty, my ass!

Sure, let's go back to the Dark Ages, when it was illegal for women to read, and there was nothing. NOTHING. No medical treatment. No computers. No electricity. NOTHING. Back when people thought the sun orbited the earth. Back when you were lucky if you could live to be 40 years old. Yep, that was the happiest period in the history of the earth.

@ xyz: HOLY SHIT! Illegal for women to read?! I thank my lucky stars I didn't live back then...I would've committed suicide!

You're right. The price we paid is very high: losing racism, sexism, intolorance, and much pain and suffering caused by a lack of technology.
We should all go back into an age where people live short, painful lives full of suffering.

Yeah, nothing like having a life expectancy of 35.
