Re: The Delusions of Religion's Accomodation

All I'm going to say is that there would not have been universities or universal education if it hadn't been for Christianity.

In my country the oldest and also the major internationally recognised Universities were started as a result of funds and expertise from the mining industry, mining magnates, Governments who realised that the economy depended on the mining industry, etc.

Science was first, the churches intervened and took over later.

Re: Two Cheers for Accomodationism

The Catholic Church's admonitions against birth control have killed millions in Africa.

Nope, the reluctance of Christian Churches in Africa to accept and 'preach' birth control has resulted in millions of children starving to death. And their children starving to death.

It's so easy to do though; teach that if you can't feed a child; don't breed the child. That's what should be taught.

Re: Atheists turn reality into myth. Amazing alchemy

I can't see it, therefore it doesn't exist.

This one doesn't make any sense in describing me, Faith. I can't see electricity, but I am convinced that electricity exists. The evidence for the existence of elecricity is overwhelming to me. And to most rational people around the world, too. You do find a few who deny it, but they are crazy.
