Why do atheistic bigots perpetuate the idea that they are intellectually superior to Christians?
The fact is science has its roots in Christian culture.These were all outstanding pioneers in science and mathematics and YES DEVOUT CHRISTIANS: Issaac Newton (Calculus), Robert Boyle (Chemistry), Michael Faraday (Electro magnetics), Blaise Pascal (Hydrostatics).
This is a only a small sample of brilliant Christian minds who gave us the building blocks for the modern world. Modern Science was born in Christian Culture with leaders like Johannes Kepler who coined the phrase " Thinking Gods thought after Him." Stop parroting the leftist propaganda and read the history of science.

That all might be true, but we have Penn & Teller so we win by default.

Science is our territory.

Tom S. Fox

If they had known what we know today, they would probably have been atheists.

Where does sheep chasers Archimedes & Euclid fit in this delusion? What about those turrists who discovered the convenient use of zero? Both around 2nd century BC.

Oh and which religion was it who arrested Galileo for proving the sun was the center of our solar system?

Haha, yet fundies today deny some of newton's other work (gravity)George Lemaitre's (a priest's) theory of The Big Bang (oh noes, he was catholic, that's not Christian!!11!), and anything else a devout Christian may have done that they're too stupid to accept above the word of the bible. Retards.

I'm a big fan of the Mythbusters, myself.

Many of your 'Christian scientists' lived in a time where they would've barely been listened to if they weren't at least officially Christian.

10/22/2008 6:24:35 PM


I find it's mostly that Fundie Christians demonstrate the idea that they're intellectually inferior.

Which is true. Not all Christians are stupid, but if I'm going to label someone a Fundie, they are, so....

"Why do atheistic bigots perpetuate the idea that they are intellectually superior to Christians? "

Because of Supersport, Lone Wolf, AV1611VET, and and the inhabitants of rapture retards.

Weren't most people Christians by default back then, anyway?

El Guapo

And the founding fathers of the US all crapped in a bucket. Does that mean that none of us should use plumbing?

10/22/2008 6:52:44 PM


Isaac Newton was into alchemy, which was basically the precursor of modern new age mysticism. Not very Christian at least by your standards.

Also, back then we didn't know as much as we know now, so it was easier to believe that Christianity made sense and harder to come up with alternate ideas about how things work. Today, almost all top scientists are atheists, at least in the US and Canada.

And the fact that some smart people are Christian doesn't prove anything.

The ancient egyptians would like a word with you.

Thinking Allowed: Don't forget Ancient Greece!

The fact is science has its roots in Christian culture.

Yes, as long as its findings were convenient to Christianity. As soon as the scientific method started bringing up data that threw Christianity into question, you distanced yourselves from it as much as possible - which pretty much negates the whole "Christianity owns science" thing that you seem to be going for here.

10/22/2008 7:45:02 PM


Actually our science has it's roots in Greece.

10/22/2008 8:14:08 PM


I don't think of myself as intellectually superior to most Christians. Only when it comes to Creationists, KJV literalists, and other narrow-minded fundamentalists.

10/22/2008 8:15:04 PM



Religious affiliation =/= level of intelligence. That is, despite what those retarded "atheists" say at Y!A, you can be intelligent and inquisitive so long as you're open-minded and willing to dig deep for knowledge.

Of course, it doesn't hurt to be willing to question pre-existing beliefs...

The L

The Christians who advanced science had one very important advantage over Dennis:

They didn't refuse to believe the evidence of their own senses over a third-hand account in a 2000-year-old book.

Old Viking

These scientists worked in a Christian culture because, in Europe, that's all there was. And their accomplishments were their own. They were not supported by Christianity, whose policy was generally to fight any advance in human knowledge -- from anatomy to heliocentrism -- like a rabid dog.

Don't forget Albert Einstein!

Oh wait, he was Jewish.

10/22/2008 8:42:48 PM

Doctor Whom

The Christian world used to get its science from the ancient Greeks, by way of the Muslims. One of us most certainly should stop parroting the propaganda and read the history of science.

10/22/2008 8:44:10 PM


Isaac Newton (Calculus), Robert Boyle (Chemistry), Michael Faraday (Electro magnetics), Blaise Pascal (Hydrostatics).

What about Darwin (Biology)?. He was a christian too. Or don't his discoveries count because you don't like them?

10/22/2008 8:49:24 PM


I thought you Fundies hated science.
