A Couple of Items
One of the criticisms of the medieval period and the role of the Church is this relationship of science and religion – the Church supposedly placing a higher priority on voodoo than on actual scientific inquiry, blocking discoveries that threatened the established religious dogma, etc.
The most famous example, false as it is, is that of Copernicus and Galileo. This episode is mocked by the moderns, just as other examples – regardless of the facts or lack thereof – are mocked.
“How could such people believe such things?”
“Look at the Church standing in the way of science!”
“Whenever science and religion butt heads, science is always proven right.”
I wonder what people will say in a hundred years or more from now of our generation. Haven’t we thrown away science and replaced it with the religion of a virus, a religion of critical theory, a religion of money growing on trees? Can any of these be thought of as anything other than a religion (in the worst sense of the word)?
We look back with scorn at the book burnings, getting rid of idea
