I felt that similar when I read that, 'he scrapped off archimedes and wrote over it with prayers'
Dear lord, I mean, whats the purpose even!?!!?
I believe this is exactly what is happening with religion in government in modern times.
I find the stem cells bit shocking. In the past, the pious refused to allow bodies to be dissected after death, for study, because the body was
sacrosanct. Heck, they wouldn't even cremate bodies, because they had to remain intact for 'the ressurection'.
Of course, once it became a problem for the church, (millions decaying in teh streets from teh black plague), then cremation was permited and
Its the same situation that we see in the middle east, islam is presented as a religion and a guide for society, thus things that don't fit with
religious interpretations of islam can be prohibited within society.
Its disgusting. Just look at the RCC preventing kerry from getting communion, because he was pro-abortion. How many other people does the church
deny it to? Apparently only when its a worthwhile political ploy do they bother. Meanwhile, they're enabling child-rape.
And the other extreme is true, soviet russia was an atheist state, and took its ideology to the extreme. Thus they had Lysenkoism, they backed a
horrible biological-agricultural theory that was killing masses of people and destroying the state
, because it was 'ideologically
consistent'. More politics. What we need is real politics
