Since Lucifer's plan against God was to allow humans to gain knowledge (that's what the forbidden fruit was; knowledge of good and evil) then in a way you could say that science is satanic. But then, it's a good thing for Satan, not a bad thing for science!

yay repression of knowlage!

Yeah yeah, science is evil, intelligence is evil, spelling is evil, grammar is evil.
We get the picture. So quit accepting all our evil luxuries and go build yourself a mud hut somewhere.

Godly scientists represent a more frightening threat to civilization, Ramohog. Such people would unleash total destruction based on their faith in some nonexistent deity rather than on reason and logic.

Ugh, Tesla Cultists. All religions are obnoxiously unscientific to some degree, and tend to pronounce themselves superior to it; the cranks who religiously, uncritically, obsessively worship Tesla and hold him up as the pinnacle of creation and the answer to all humanity's problems are particularly galling, however, because they declare themselves superior to the scientific community not because science itself is inferior, but because they actually have the gall to think they can do science better than the rest of us, without in fact having the first clue about how real science or engineering are actually done.
Infuriatingly, they also completely choke-up the web with their incoherent ramblings about Tesla's allegedly suppressed or disregarded superinventions, which makes it really difficult and time consuming if you want to find any information about Tesla's genuine inventions that actually do work and can be used to do useful things.

When is YouTube gonna implement that test of sanity that I've been recommending for the last two years?

Psh. Prism towers were so much better then Tesla Coils.

@Tolpuddle Martyr: LOL! You win an internet.

You think Tesla is a model scientist? AKA Mr. Death Ray? Not that he wasnt a fucking awesome guy, but if you think he's some kind of enlightened role model or something, you've got a lot to learn.

I just don't get the fascination with Tesla that these conspiracy nuts have with him. Yes, he did some really neat experiments, but they seem to think that he invented laser death rays, magnetic propulsion systems, or something like that.
Kind of what Brain_in_a_jar said above.

True science coming from people like Tesla...
I thought they were a rock band. ;-)

Um, Nikola was pretty ungodly.

And you say it in a medium that, without science, wouldn't exist. Not very consistent.

@Doubting Thomas: It has to do with the fact that all his work was confiscated on his death because he called the defence department from New York shortly before he died to offer them his "peace ray" (the media labelled it the death ray) design to fight the Nazis.
Naturally when he died the govt raided his apartment to see if there was any truth to his claims. What was taken was returned decades later and turned out to be nothing because Tesla designed all his inventions in his head before he put them to paper.
He was the sort of gifted where you can put say like a motor together in your head vividly. So he designed stuff without needing pen and paper drawings.
Conspiracy nuts insist that the FBI confiscated designs for the "death ray" and never returned it and that is the basis of modern railguns. It's bullshit.
