I was waiting to be admonished for suggesting Ron as a great thinker..


I thought about harassing you, but I figured you were being fecetious.

On Topic: I would say the Catholic church would be the biggest culprit historically. However, now the Catholic church is all about science. I think they were back then too, but they didn't want some knowledge public because it went against church doctrine or scripture.



Many of the scientists killed by the catholic church were deemed heretics not just for there scientific views but for going against the church in general.

I think Ghenghis Khan gets that trophy.
I'm not aware that he was religious in any way.


his religion was his creed, dogma, ideology.

it's all the same stuff...

I'm assuming it's Christianity, but lately I've seen a lot of craziness blaming Muslims for the dark ages and other such things. As well as people claiming Christianity isn't anti science. So here is a spot to list all the great thinkers from history that were murdered by what ever church killed them.


This is an easy answer: The Religion of State.

National Socialism, Communism, Fascism, etc.

The worship of the all powerful government.




That would have been my second answer!


2nd.

Who knows how many potential scientific genii were killed for their religious beliefs.

As a wild and drunken guess I would go for Nobel.

It's a very wild off the top one, but a guess none the less.

I remember reading somewhere that steam power has killed more people than any other form of power though.

That is inaccurate. I sm not in any way connected to Islam outside of being born into a Catholic family. Folks need to rid themselves of religious bias ASAP.

Problem is, people believe they have a right to impress others with their personal beliefs..

I feel and experience Islam, Christianity and Judaism as insolent and childish. I consider Raja Yogic philosophy vastly superior to anything expounded by modern society.


Are you sure you meant to respond to me? The response seems meant for someone else.

seeing science is responsible for chemicals ,biological , or all technology they claim, I would say that science ,not religion is who is responsible for the death of many......

Maybe in time but religion has been around for a lot longer than modern science.

I would guess that as of now religion has the upper hand on death.

So by that I guess you are one of those people who blame guns and not the people who use them when someone gets shot.

This goes a little of topic but raises an interesting question.

It can be said that science has, does and will cause death but it tends to be that the scientist that creates or discovers something does not intend it to cause harm.

That is why I mentioned Nobel and dynamite, he never meant his invention to cause death.

Religion on the other hand? Can religious extremists say the same?

Very good point. I feel bad for missing the intent of that post.

When you mentioned Nobel I spaced out on the meaning.


Do we blame the person who invented the sword or the one who wields it for the deaths inflicted.

IMO it is the ones wielding it.

His army completely sacked Baghdad in 1258. It was the pinnacle of science in the Muslim world at the time.
They have never recovered.


Interesting.

What scientific achievements did they have that were destroyed in 1258 ?


Good question. Let's dig together.

Good point! I read about a nun in the 1700s who was an open lesbian. She became very influential and was steadily amassing power, but was arrested and kept confined for half her life. However she wasn't arrested for being homosexual. It was for her power grabbing antics.
